'What isn't in my make up bag?!' is probably a better title to this post and video because wo, amigos, making this film made me stop, recognise and importantly reorganise- not just my make up bag but also my life.
Those who follow my blog know that I've always been a champion of natural beauty products. I suffer with sensitive skin that's easily aggravated (as does my eldest son), so we only ever use 100% natural products here.
Earlier this summer I announced that I was joining the likes of Jordan Dunn and Gigi Hadid (I know, crazy huh) to become a part of the uber glam #Maybellinesquad. Squad goals complete right?
Forget Taylor Swift! There's only one squad for me! The #Maybellinesquad (maybe she's born with it)! Yup I'm excited to announce that I've been asked to collaborate with Maybelline's group of global beauty ambassadors to share my top beauty tips and my favourite make up from their latest range.
Our family has always struggled with sensitive skin and boy is it frustrating and uncomfortable!
Last September saw me hot foot it to London for a shoot with Red Magazine for a digital campaign with Superdrug showcasing the store's new in house brand: B. Make up and Skincare.
I need to no excuse to dress up as regular readers here know!
When I attended the Harrods' Christmas press preview in July, I was lucky enough to meet hair stylist to the stars and Creative Director of Urban Retreat, Harrods, Andrew Barton. Charming Andrew kindly invited me into the salon during our chat, promising me a beautiful blow dry and it certainly did not disappoint!.
It's summer (or at least the closest thing we'll get to a summer here in the UK), so I wanted to share some of my top tips on how to achieve the perfect dewy daytime make up look for these 'warmer months'.
I'd like to share a bit of advice to all my readers who haven't yet had kids. Never - and I repeat NEVER - take date nights for granted. Because as soon as bambinos are on the scene - and my fellow mamas will back me up here - date nights become rarer than rocking horse poop!
When it comes to anti-ageing skincare routines, I'm a little bit (OK a lot...) late to the party! At 34, I've only just started using anti-ageing products, which according to the experts is about 14 years too late! My bad!
I'm honoured to be working with NIVEA, one of my all-time favourite skincare brands, reviewing their NIVEA Q10 anti-aging collection and also appearing in their latest campaign film with my kids.
I know the advice is to use anti-wrinkle cream from the end of your 20's but I'm a bit of a later starter and have only started recently, at the grand old (not really old) age of 34.
Work hard, play hard I say. And by play hard, as a mum of two, I mean mostly, retail therapy. Although not shopping with kids, now that's anything but therapeutic.
PinterestLondon is always a whirlwind for me, and last Wednesday was no exception. Taking my Mum along for a rare night away and quite the party (more of that soon), I had some exciting meetings by day (as always, I'll reveal more when I can)- as we made our way through chic coffee shops in Farringdon to the place I call home in the city, Charlotte Street Hotel, a bustling yet relaxing hub where meetings can turn to dinner easily, and being so close to Soho and the production company I have a TV series in development with, makes it the ideal place for my blogging and TV career to meet.
Mothers & Shakers Featured Post. We are sent a fair few samples in this house but never have we tried fragrances for all the family before and let me start by stating these Khush-Boo fragrances are JOYFU...
I love experimenting with my hair and deviate from super curly or soft waves to poker straight hair from week to week.
As a list maker and lover, and sometimes it must be said, forgetter of things I love and need-this week I'm noting all the lovely items we've been sent for review recently that are making me smile!
Thanks to twitter I've gotten to know Cloud 9 Skin Solutions, an innovative new British skincare brand, paraben and cruelty-free, dedicated in creating solutions for specific skin problems. Launching with an initial range of five stand-out products, the brand empowers users to restore the natural beauty of their skin, using the unique blend of natural ingredients in all the Cloud 9 Skin Solutions products.
Those who follow this blog know that I love a good pamper session and that's exactly what I had last week thanks to Allertons in Leeds!
