More Beauty Empties!

I decided to do a little clear out of my make up and my god I go through a lot of mascara! That and the fact it goes off quite quickly. Generally I think you get about 3 months out of a mascara before you should replace it.

So anyways if you want to see what I’ve been using up and whether I would repurchase or not then please continue reading 🙂

Winter Lips – Purple!

Generally for Autumn and Winter we tend to lean towards darker shades of lipstick. Browns and reds etc…

But purple shades and tones can be so beautiful and a deep purple is a gorgeous change to the usual winter shades.

I’ve picked a few of my favourite purple toned lipsticks for inspiration below 🙂

Make Up Packing for Hols!

Very quick blog on what to pack if your going away! Normally I pack way too much and I don’t use half of it but going to Fuerteventura meant I had a lot more clothing to pack (mainly for Kayleigh) so I didn’t want to overdo it with make up plus I made a conscious decision that I would only bring what I would use! And I think I did just that (pat on the back lol).

Obviously you will have different products, skin type etc… but this is just to give you a guideline.

All Inclusive Fuerteventura Holiday!

I am just back (literally flew in last night) from the most amazing family holiday to Fuerteventura in The Canary Islands.

I don’t even know where to start this blog but I will say first that I think this blog will be helpful to families with children as I know what a dream holiday would be with our little one and let me just say I think that I fulfilled that dream (I know sounds ridiculously cheesy).

But let me explain! We wanted somewhere warm, relaxation, swimming, good food, even better drinks, entertainment for our daughter, an experience, activities and just overall fun!

And to be completely honest we got even more than we could ask for! So if your looking for somewhere to take the kids away then please keep reading. As always this was our experience and I just think it could be helpful.

Beauty Empties!

I’m back with some more empties that had been cramming up my dresser! So can throw them out now that I’ve started this blog 🙂

I love empties blogs as it makes you think if you would repurchase or not especially as you’ve used up the product so you’d have a fairly good idea on whether you liked it or not.

So let’s get onto the empties 🙂

Simple but SPICY Massaman Curry :)

I LOVE spicy food!! I can’t get enough of it to be honest.

I recently was inspired to make my own curry using spices and curry paste and not buying it from a jar anymore. I’ve never had much luck making curry it always came out disgusting but with this I had high hopes!

Massaman curry is described as being a relatively mild Thai curry but I like to add spice 🙂

I would definitely consider this being a healthier curry and my new go to if I’m having cravings for a take away! And with only 7 ingredients you can’t go wrong 🙂

I will detail nutritional information so please keep on reading for the recipe and more 🙂

First Impressions – Revlon ColorStay For Oily/Combination Skin.

I have wanted to try this foundation for a very long time! It has amazing reviews and have heard nothing but good things.

I bought it at a great time as currently it is 2 for €18 in Boots and normally it costs €18.99 for one!

So naturally I bought 2 🙂 One for when I have a darkish tan and one for when I am lightly tanned.

So lets start with what it’s meant to.

It claims to help control shine for a velvet matte finish, buildable formula that blends seamlessly onto the skin for a perfectly even yet natural looking complexion. It also claims to give 24 hours wear.

It is oil free with a SPF of 15 and 19 shades are available on

To find out what my first impressions are please continue reading 🙂

Skincare Routine – Minding Oily Skin!

About 3 years ago my skin suddenly became extremely oily! I’ve suffered from acne on and off since I was a teenager but was never majorly oily.

All of a sudden I was a hot shiny mess, make up was sliding off my face and breakouts were much more than normal! All I can put it down to was a change in hormone levels after having my daughter.

To combat the initial oiliness and breakouts I started using the La Roche Posay Effaclar Range. I have a full review on those products below.

Since then my skincare routine has changed a lot, trying lots of different products but I am very happy with what I am using now.

And my skin is in no way perfect but far better than what it was!
