When ASOS have the best trousers.....

When ASOS do the best trousers, these are my favourite trousers to date! Again I am not sure whether to do a lengthy post alongside my fashion posts or not so will just do a little chit chat. I am now 33, and I feel like I'm in weird time where I have had my little babies and will continue my journey with them but I also now want to try and find myself again does that make sense? Comment below what type of adventures I should plan for my 33rd year? I definitely want to make a trip to London that's for sure. 

                                                                Shop the look below.

Review: Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Palette Newtrals 2

Makeup Revolution has always been a consistently good brand but one I forget until recently when they released the conceal and define concealer- which is still strong in my everyday makeup bag! Have reviewed it here if you want to go and have a little read.

This palette has 15 different shades, from burnt orange to fiery red with mattes and the odd sparkly shade, it is a perfect palette for those who are a lover of Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance palette with all those warm tones perfect for any eye colour.

The eyeshadows are buttery and each shade has a good amount of product especially for the amazing price tag of only £4! yes you read that right...I repeat £4!! I found these easy to blend, super pigmented and I could create such stunning looks! The packaging isn't the best, its not "pretty" and is a cheap plastic with nothing to please the eye, but the product itself is what matters and boy is it worth it and something I will definitely want to be repurchasing. 

You can purchase this palette here.

Have you tried this palette?

A letter to my little one....


Yesterday you turned 1, a day I didn't want, a day I wish would hold on for a while, why? Because you are my little baby, you still need me, you still want cuddles and want me near. I can't explain how it feels when your child turns a year older, it is happiness mixed with a little bit of pain, each year that passes means a year closer to you leaving to be your own person, a year closer to you not needing me anymore and this is what I fear but I know at the same time life is exciting, life is precious and I am proud of you and so lucky to be your mummy, lucky beyond belief and this I am grateful for.

You are beyond beautiful and all the little things you do make me fill with pride, the way you point towards the sky, the way you look with love, the way you growl and laugh. You have such a playful soul that is also kind and gentle. Mummy is proud of you.



You were born into a family who adore and love you more then words can express, you are my little angel who has completed the puzzle, you keep me warm and content. Some of my happiest moments are when I look into your eyes, see you smile, when you hold me tight, I thank you for loving me as your mummy. 

Little Nello....things to remember and do

Go on adventures

Explore the world around you

Don't wish to grow up, keep your little imagination alive for as long as you can

Chase that butterfly 

Go for walks and feel the wind against your face

Feel the sand between your toes feeling each grain 

Run into the sea with a smile on your face

Laugh till it hurts

Dance till your feet cant dance anymore

Love with all your heart

Be kind

Know that everyone is different and this makes us all beautiful

Smile at strangers

Always listen and be there for others

Help those less fortunate

Know that you are loved more then you can ever imagine, that you will always have mummy near you no matter when I may be, be it here or above the stars, don't forget that I have loved and will always love you with all I have. 



My Little Nello

Review: Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

My trusted MAC Cosmetics concealer was on its way out and I was on the hunt for a cheaper alternative. Makeup Revolution had recently released a new concealer, the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer, apparently a dupe for the loved Tarte Shape Tape which is a huge pricey little number.

I was unsure on what shade to chose so decided on C4 out of the 18 available shades which is such a good choice compared to other brands who offer only a handful of shades. The product has a lovely rose gold and irridescent packaging with a large sponge applicator.

The concealer is very creamy and slightly thicker then other concealers I have tried and dries a matte finish. I applied this concealer on a manic Monday morning with three little children needing my attention, as I applied this I actually paused and inhaled a deep breath of shock! Not dramatic at all is it....this concealer is everything I have been wanting from a concealer. This concealer not only covers dark circles but doesn't crease which is always the issue I find with concealers. The concealer is easy to apply and blend and lasts all day. I have to admit I am in love and it even beats my MAC concealer! For just £4 this is so worth the money and would highly recommend the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer
