This post is long overdue, when I first bought it I had the intention of reviewing it after a month or so of using it but it’s just been put back, but not because it’s an awful product I’m just useless sometimes!
I’ve been wearing the same makeup look for a while now, changing the odd product here and there but for the most part I’ve kept things simple for the warmer weather we’ve been having.
I have mentioned this product in a couple of previous posts; Products Worth Mentioning #4 and my June Favourites 2015 but I wanted to write a full review on this product as I’ve been so impressed by it.
Urban Decay is by far one of my favourite makeup brands. I’ve tried numerous products by them and although this palette is an old release now, it’s a cult product in the beauty world. I’m going to keep this post short and sweet, I won’t bore you to tears, promise!
Since we found out the gender of our first baby, it’s safe to say Brent and I have gone a little bit crazy with buying baby clothes. It’s so much more fun buying for your little one as apposed to ourselves. Although we’ve bought a lot in George and Tesco’s, Next is by far our favourite for both of us and our baby boy. Not only is it affordable, the quality is excellent and there’s always so much choice. Not to mention their super quick delivery that has rescued me on numerous occasions!
MAC Soft & Gentle has been on my wishlist for such a long time now, one of those cult products that every blogger or beauty addict seems to own or want to own. I finally picked it up and I am so glad that I did!
My first outfit post with my baby bump, ahh. A spontaneous shoot I decided upon about an hour ago. I wore this dress yesterday for my mum’s birthday shenanigans and whipped it back out while the sun was still shinning to share it with you. Now don’t click off, the Next Tiered Dress is not from the maternity section, I chose it because of the loose flowy style. I can easily wear this next summer when I no longer have a bump and it sits lovely over the little one I have now, and has room when I grow.
From the moment Charlotte Tilbury released her own makeup line I knew I had to have it. I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time swooning over her gorgeous products and stunning packaging and finally, for my birthday this year my mum treated me to two products. Happy bunny right there!
Today was the day. We have been waiting for this scan since we found out we were having a baby. I know some people don’t like to find out but we never said otherwise as we wanted to be able to prepare ourselves fully. We, friends and family all wanted to buy gender clothes as there’s only so much unisex to buy and a mad dash to the shops with a newborn is not what we wanted to do. Most importantly though, we wanted to be able to call them by the name that we had chosen as soon as we found out. So, we are expecting….
After our first trip to Dartmoor last year it’s safe to say I completely fell in love with the place. The peacefulness, miles and miles of beautiful scenery that isn’t ruined by telephone polls and the lack of people. You’re lucky if you spot people in the distance but you rarely cross paths with anyone unless you’re in a touristy area. I couldn’t wait to go back again this year.
I can’t believe that I am 20 weeks pregnant today, 5 months and officially half way through. It’s crazy how quickly the time has flown by since 12 weeks, just seems to be getting quicker by the week.
June seemed to fly by, most of us seem to say this every month but it disappeared in a flash. I’m not complaining though because in just six days time, Brent and I will hopefully find out the gender of our first baby. We are so incredibly excited and I have been counting down the days in June! June was a fun and busy month for us both and it seems to only be getting better…hope I haven’t jinxed us!
It’s no secret that Juicy Couture is one of my most favourite fragrance brands out there. I’m constantly raving about them on here and to people I know, they just smell incredible and are yet to let me down. I always snap up a new scent in the Boxing Day sales as they are always a huge bargain and too good to miss!
I’m nearly 19 weeks as I write this but I wanted to write a little update about how things are going and share my latest midwife appointment before I completely forget.
Last year micellar waters hit the beauty world with a bang. What started as Bioderma being the firm favourite, every skincare brand around brought their own micellar water onto the market and I certainly jumped on that bandwagon! Who didn’t right? I was asked if I would like to try the new La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel* and said yes as I was so intrigued by this new form of micellar product.
Growing up I spent my days applying foundation with my fingers and eyeshadows with the sponge applicators – I now shudder at the thought! Gradually I became more obsessed with beauty products and of course that meant brushes too.
It’s been a while since I have written one of these but I’ve recently been using some new products that I am so impressed with and wanted to share them with you all. I have planned to write full reviews on a couple of the new products as well so keep your eyes peeled for them.
Today marks 16 weeks, 4 months along! It sounds so far already but it’s going really slowly. Only 4 more weeks until I’m half way though, which is just crazy. Nothing has happened appointment wise. I have my second midwife appointment on June 19th which is my 16-18 weeks check-up and my second scan on July 7th, hopefully at this scan they will be able to tell us the gender, so exciting.
I always say the same thing, I hardly wear lipstick but I am obsessed with buying them. One weekend I bought four, FOUR! Is that even acceptable? I had a stash of products on my Muji drawers, all the products that needed photographing before I could use them – #bloggerproblems, I noticed that 95% were lip products, the other 5% nail products – my second worst enemy. I decided to share with you all the lip products that I have accumulated recently.
May has been one crazy month, some sad moments but generally mostly happy. If you didn’t know, May was when Brent and I announced that we are having our first baby! You can read all about that in my Surprise post and also get up to date with my pregnancy so far with my Pregnancy – Weeks 1-12 post. It was also my birthday month but since I turned 21 (this was my 25th) I just don’t really celebrate it anymore…such a granny, I know.
This month beauty products wise, I really don’t have a lot to share but the products I do have are certainly worthy of some attention.
