Calling all my fellow makeup junkies, you do NOT want to miss out on this post as today I'm sharing my designer makeup must-haves! These are the products I treated myself to over Christmas, the indulgent buys that are definitely worth the dollar!
Setting off from Leeds to Newcastle on a grey and drizzly day on Saturday to celebrate the launch of Esso's Synergy Fuels, the rain surprisingly and much to the awe of my kids, soon turned to snow on the motorway mid-journey.
We certainly didn't expect it. And certainly not as much.
This year, it must be stated, we've had the most incredible fun decorating our Christmas tree (below).
Past years have seen me decorate our tree solo, or when little helpers have intervened, a few Christmas tree related disasters have followed: smashed baubles, twisted branches, tears over faulty twinkling lights and tantrums over tinsel I ended up binning (who likes tinsel over the age of 5 anyway?!)
Whilst I mourn the end of summer for the weather, I happily console myself in the fact the change in seasons means I can dig my Autumn/Winter wardrobe our, as well as treat myself to a few pieces in keeping with fashions top new trends.
The idea of earning money from shopping almost sounds too good to be true but fear not my dear readers, it is a THING and you can shop guilt-free knowing you're getting the best deals around with money back guaranteed!
Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day as I spent it in London with my Mum (we arrived the night before) so I could speak on a prestigious panel for Mode Media first thing (Mode represent the display ads on my blogs) and set up this breakfast meeting with a panel on pro blogging and brand endorsement for a large audience of major UK brands.
My work as a professional blogger is so diverse that no day is ever the same and I love it all, firstly documenting our lives as family right here along with my other passions-writing, food, beauty and style.
