As you all know, I am very much a jeans and t-shirt fan. This combination is my go-to outfit most days. If I feel I want to look a little more special, usually, the jeans stay and the t-shirt gets swapped for a nice top or blouse. As a result, I like to be fairly aware of jean trends. I try to follow when the styles that are available and have started looking at places like Simply Be who start from size 10!
What an amazing and slightly unexpected day the Royal wedding was. So many of the greatest celebrities in attendance and Bishop Michael Curry stealing the show in front of enormous TV audiences, including almost 30 million in the US! Markle sparkled and Harry was the fairytale Prince, Elton John on the piano and the main cast of Suits – imagine the wedding gifts! What a wonderful event it was and the perfect wedding weather too.
Having kids comes with sacrifices. After all, you’ve got to give up a great deal of your time. There are a lot of things that you might have been able to do before having kids that you simply can’t anymore. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to give everything up!
Make-up has been one of my true loves since I was a little girl. Ever since my mum used to sit and do my make up for the monthly school disco in primary school. Yes primary school. I had lip liner in my little bag and everything.
Now, I’m not claiming to be any sort of pro. I can’t tell you the best techniques or even if what I’m doing is correct. But I love make-up. I love waking up my face after my 6,729,298th sleepless night with a bucket load of concealer and dusting of highlighter.
A few weeks ago I was invited to take part in a Quiz Clothing blogger secret Santa campaign. Normally I’d be a little hesitant, as my fashion sense just really isn’t up to scratch these days. I live in my Selfish Mother sweater and skinny jeans.
But this would be me choosing an outfit for something else, and if there’s one thing I adore, its shopping for other people. So I took on the challenge and was teamed up with Whats Hot Blog. Head over to her blog if you want to see the outfit I picked out for her.
