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!
Lucy is a 30-year-old Senior PR Manager living in London who works for the Red Consultancy across a variety of health, beauty, food and lifestyle brands including Boots and Johnson & Johnson.

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.
So Tuesday was a rather exciting day! Thanks to John at Dad Blog UK's recommendation, I was invited to Sky TV to film an edited version of my post on the Imposter Syndrome for 'Morning Stories' a series on Sky News where academics, bloggers and media experts share their opinions on all manner of topics from politics to well-being and beyond.
So today I bumped into an old boyfriend in the post office, as you do (this never happens).
It was really sweet seeing him again, especially as the last time we met up was about 17 whole years ago-and now we're 35 and 36 respectively.
A few weeks ago saw me head down to London for a photo shoot with celebrity photographer Joseph Sinclair.
I have some exciting collabs and speaking engagements scheduled over the coming months so was in need of some new shots for PR materials and both of my blogs, so this was the perfect time to shoot.
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.
Sleep-deprivation isn't just for parents of newborns, I'm still waiting for my 5 year old, Oliver to sleep through the night, every night. Really.
Both he and Alexander are light sleepers like their Mama and both will usually wake up at least once a night if not more. Good times.
...And it's not just us who are suffering, the majority of parents I've asked recently, seem to be too. It appears we are all relentlessly searching for the holy grail of consistent sleep-argh remember the full 8 hours pre-kids. It's but a distant memory for myself and so many.
So yesterday saw me head to Manchester for a special meeting with renowned modelling agency Nemesis. One of the biggest modelling agencies in the UK, they discovered and made so many of today's British stars, famous: Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Melanie Sykes, Vernon Kay, Michelle Keegan and as of today, they're representing little old me!
Those that follow this blog know my great, sometimes obsessive LOVE of make up. I refer to it as my armour, it gives me confidence and helps to hide dark circles from the many sleepless nights I suffer sadly (thanks kids)-making me feel awake on the outside if not in.
