I’ve never been very good at this hair and beauty thing, it’s not something which came naturally to me as a teenager, or through my college years. After having my son, I felt it became more important to appear to the outside world that I had it all together, and so I started to focus on my appearance more. As any mother knows, a baby/toddler can wreak havoc on the amount of solo time you’ve got – going to the bathroom alone is considered a luxury so spending an hour on hair and beautyÂ isn’t exactly an option. However, I’ve discovered a few products in the last while which have been game changers – quick, easy and effective – what more could you want?
I may have documented on here once or twice how much I’ve started liking to have my nails done pretty despite having crappy nails myself – the invention of false nails has definitely been a help in this. Normally I’ve picked them up in Boots on random wanders in, but lately I made a trip to the Elegant Touch website and discovered they have a sale on – DANGEROUS! I discovered quite a lot of bargains and so after splurging out a bit, lets call it investing, I managed to get 10 pairs for the price of 4 – not bad going for a random find! May as well do a bit of a “haul” post! (Usual programming of parenting, poo and caffeine addiction will resume shortly). (more…)
If you follow me on Instagram* or are a long-time reader of this blog; you’ll know that over the last while I’ve grown a tiny little bit of an obsession with my nails. Mostly, in my case, fake nails, because I’ve a nervous tick of biting them and any attempt to kick this horrible habit hasn’t gone so well. What can I say, bit of a stressful year, but hey, that’s what the gorgeous false ones are for.
I’ve also recently been trying to spread the word about this blog, and all of it’s ramblings about nappies, PND and other such fun Mammy activities on different social media accounts, and I did mention a giveaway over the last few days. That time is now, so I’m combining my thanks to the lovely people who are reading my blog (new and old) and my obsession with pretty nails and having a nail product giveaway! These are all things I’ve picked up over the last while and stashed away as potential lovely bits to giveaway or use myself. I hope you like them! (more…)
So it’s been a while since my materialistic retail therapy side paid a visit to the blog, indeed since the contents of my makeup bag did. January was a fairly, let’s say, sparse month for new things but between a payday flurry at the end of the month (who lets me loose in Boots??) and some stuff I got for Christmas but waited to try out, there have been some new additions crying out for attention.
