FRIDAY FIVE: A few beauty tips

AT 34 years of age, it’s safe to say I’ve picked up a few beauty tips along the years. Some of them from pros, some of them I’ve just figured out myself through many a trial and error. Here are five of my favourites. Beauty tips that I have lived and (oh my goodness) learned! I’ve made the mistakes so you don’t have to. ———   You can never have

MY STYLE: A sunny Saturday in double denim & new heels

ON Saturday the sun was out in full force and boy oh boy didn’t it feel good?! Admittedly it was a little chilly when out of the sunshine, but nevertheless it was bloomin’ gorgeous. In total honesty, I’ve been waiting for a decent sunny day for a long time. And not just because I am in desperate need of some cheering up right up now. But because, well, I’ve been

SASS: My mug. In new shots.

Well, well, well my lovers. It’s been a while! You may have been wondering what I’ve been up to in my absence and the truth is a hell of a lot. As many of you will understand, presently there are just not enough hours in the day. But beyond the madness of work, motherhood and celebrating many a birthday over the last month (more of that later) I did find the

YOUR SECRETS: Laura’s story, ‘How I’ve made myself a success in the music industry’

THIS month’s ‘Your Secrets’ story is an absolute belter. So good in fact, that I’ve been excited about sharing this with you for weeks. Many of you will probably recognise Laura White from her time on the X Factor a few years ago and the subsequent mass media attention she gained when she was shockingly voted out. And if you’ve ever wondered what you’ve been up to since the show,

SASS: Daring to go bare (faced)

IT’S not like me to say no to a challenge. So when my blogger friend Mama and More challenged me to take part in the ‘I AM BEAUTIFUL’ link up hosted by Vodka Infused Lemonade and publish an image of myself , bare faced and make up free,  for the whole wide world to see, I couldn’t really refuse. (Damn it!) In all honesty, between you and I, I’d much

FRIDAY FIVE: How to cope when motherhood feels tough

THE other night was one of those tough parenting nights. I was poorly, my little girl was poorly and so both of us got very little sleep. As I lay there in the early hours trying to settle Elsie and encourage her back to the land of nod, I had a lightbulb moment. For I realised that whilst many people will happily provide parenting advice (which is often unwanted) on
