My Birth Story (It's not cute)

If you're squeamish and don't appreciate descriptions of open wounds, smelly pus, poo explosions and the worst pain imaginable then I suggest you go and read one of my beauty reviews because boy have I got a horror story to tell you. This is my birth story, the gruesome tale of how the most beautiful baby came into the world. I never had a birth plan which may come as a shock to those who know how organised I am and how much I enjoy planning; I don't know anyone who's birth plan has gone to plan and I didn't know what to expect so decided not to bother having any expectations at all, when Luke and I rocked up to the Delivery Unit at 3am on the 10th March 2018 the Midwife asked me what my birth plan was, I said "To do as I'm told and get this baby out as safely as possible" - I think it went to plan, all things considered.

BECCA 2 Piece Ultimate Coverage Complexion Collection

I've been desperate to try Becca foundation for a while but never got around to it - when I was being naughty and indulging in the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream I spotted this little set and accidentally ordered it. I've heard great things about the coverage of this foundation and as my skin has finally settled and I tanned and I have a shopping problem I decided I had the perfect excuses to put the ultimate coverage claims to the test.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Serum

Full coverage Colour Correcting cream? Nah, you're having me on mate. Turns out It Cosmetics are not pulling our legs with this one and have successfully created a CC cream that is a lot more than a tinted moisturiser, which is what I have found most CC and BB creams to effectively be.

7 things you shouldn't do at 9 months pregnant

I'm stubborn, but I'm also really stupid, combine this with being 9 months pregnant, having a serious case of baby brain and terrible balance and spacial awareness and weeks of maternity leave with not much to do at all and you're pretty much asking for a disaster. I've done some pretty stupid things during this pregnancy, nothing that's harmed the baby (I'm not that stupid) but stupid nonetheless. Here's a collection of some of my most stupid endeavours over the past nine months.

A Guide to my Pinterest Account

Pinteret is bloody brilliant, it's like sneak peak at people's schematic thought processes; you can almost see what weird stuff they've searched for and how quickly they've fallen into a Pinterest hole and come out with seven different boards dedicated to things that you'd never expect them to be into. My Pinterest is just the same, it highlights my obsession with cleaning routines (that I never follow) and my deep desire to get a cat tattoo. I do try and use it professionally to promote my blog but Pinterest hooks you on as soon you land on your homepage and there's a plethora of images similar to the ones you've already added to your boards and suddenly you're frantically pinning away and before you know it you've created 6 more boards for 'inspo' and it's 6am and your eyes hurt and you need to stop. With all this in mind, I thought I'd give you all a little guide to some of my boards and explain how I ended up creating them at 4am on a Thursday morning.
