My Easter Weekend Beauty Haul - Superdrug

Over the Easter weekend I had an overpowering urge to treat myself to some new beauty goodies and as the idea of dragging the girls out to the shops left me cold, I decided to check out what boots and superdrug had available online. Sadly nothing from boots caught my eye, superdrug however had plenty.

Spending Ban Reflections

Well I finished my spending ban just over a month ago and I'm so glad I actually challenged myself with it, it really made me stop and question myself when I wanted or 'needed' to buy something new. It made me sit back and consider if I really need it and if I actually already had something similar at home.

Barry M - Pacific and Mermaid Polish Reviews

Hope you've all been having a fab easter weekend and that the bunny brought you all lots of chocolate. Today I have a review of two gorgeous polishes from the new Aquarium collection by Barry M that a close friend got me for my birthday last month. Pacific is a two-tone Blue with hints of green in a 'Oil slick' type effect while Mermaid is a Green, Blue and Gold large particle glitter topcoat, the two compliment each other perfectly.

Dove 60 second treatment shot review

As some of you might know I have quite coarse, thick, long wavy hair which i find very difficult to manage at times so much so that since having it dyed blonde at the ends in the ombré fashion I've found I've had to give up blow drying it as much as possible and have optioned to make my weekends heat free so no hair dryers or straighteners allowed. I've also started to use hair treatments every weekend in the hopes of improving the condition of my hair and this weekend I tried out the Dove 60 second shot I received in my March Glossybox (review here).

#Bloggersdoitbetter - Spring

Well it's day 3 of the girls Easter holidays and after a few unsettled days weather wise the sun is finally out and shining bright and we're spending our first full day outside in the garden. The girls are running round like loons and I've spent most of my day busy reorganising and replanting my front garden, it still isn't how I want it but then I don't think I'll ever be truly happy with it.

Look of the day - Shimmering Pinks and Purples for a Baby Girl

One of my favourite looks last month was created for my bestfriend's (aka the wifes') baby shower and as she's expecting a girl I decided to use it as an excuse to have a play with the pinks and purples in my new and previously unused MUA Pretty Edgy Eyeshadow Palette.

The Birthday Edition

Well last week I became another year older and I still can't believe how truly spoilt I was this year by my family and close friends. I spent my day enjoying a good old morning of coffee and gossip with my friends at our local coffee shop followed by a birthday lunch out and a spot of shopping with Mr H. Then after picking up my girls from school we all settled down for a relaxed evening with Chinese takeaway, chocolates with my family popping round to see me.

Belated Mothers Day Goodies

Well I may not of got breakfast in bed like some of my 'mummy' friends, I did however get a lie-in with a coffee in bed followed by some really thoughtful Mother's Day gifts from the two most important people in my life, my daughters Keira and Taylar who it seems know me better than I thought they did.

Champneys Deep Moisturising Softening Foot Butter

As I don't drive my feet take quite a pounding everyday with the amount of walking I do and to be honest I haven't  paid them any attention over winter. but now the suns out and the temperature has started reaching double figures again (just about) I've decided its high time I gave my feet some love and got them summer ready. I tend to stick to a pretty easy routine when it comes to my feet. I tend to just give then a weekly foot treatment with some slip on tea-tree treatment booties and then cover them in whatever body cream I have hanging around (which as I type I realise is pretty poor really).
