  • Apologies for the tatty appearance, but I just wanted to share this gorgeous palette from @suqqu_uk_official as it’s easily my most used palette (as you can see!) and even though I have a huge amount of palettes (48 at last count, after a clearout...) this one gives me everything I want: gorgeous colours, buttery textures and a flattering finish. It’s 01 and will be replaced when finished 💕PR Sample #love #suqqu #suqqueyeshadow #suqquuk
  • Here’s a #tbt to, er, Tuesday, where my visit to @charlesworthingtonsalons was a little different since this time I had an escort! Thank you @johanneheraldhair for my amazing hair (as always) and to @charlesworthingtonsalons for accommodating me and my plus one 💕PR Appointment #blondemenu #cwsalons #charlesworthingtonsalons #newhair
  • Well this was a novel way to relax for a Needlephobe!! 😱I’m happy to report that there is nothing to fear, acupuncture is surprisingly relaxing and feels very healing, especially when paired with a seriously soothing massage. Thank you @niroshini_retreats for an amazing treat, I’m now very zen and ready for a cracking night of sleep 😴 PR Appointment #acupuncture #selfie
  • Today I posted about the new @avon_uk Lip Powders, which are very impressive! I’m wearing one here and you can find out all about them via a direct link in my bio 💄 PR Samples #selfie #avon
  • How stunning is this highlighter palette from @elfcosmeticsuk? Spotted at the @pureprlondon press show last week - definitely need this ✨#elfuk #purepositivity
  • Got my @sweedlashes on and my hair all @t3haircareuk curled, so now I’m ready for my...facial. Yeah, I didn’t think that one through, but I looked very glamorous for a few pre-facial hours, at least! #pushconnect #selfie
  • A mini midweek facial 👊🏻Just used up another pot of @omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, followed this with the @ecooking Peele Mask - first time using it since I’ve gone up a retinol level...its tingly! 🥴next up is the Uber-soothing @imageskincareuk Balancing Gel Masque. I’ll then slather my face with the @beutiskincare elixir and tomorrow my skin will glow 🌝🌟✨#facial #skincare
  • Did you see my review of the @beautypie Lip Oil trio? Check out my thoughts on the blog now - direct link in bio 👄 #beautypie #postyourpie
  • Look at how proud my Little Man is! Here he is earning his purple tag as part of his Martial Arts training, and I’m going to give him a proper shout out because he is amazing.

It’s phenomenal for any child to achieve these tags as they involve so much discipline and commitment, but I’m especially proud of Teddy because he suffers from a disability called SMA which, among other things, makes balance and walking particularly difficult for him; when he was born it was predicted that he’d be in a wheelchair by now, but instead he’s achieving amazing things such as getting his fifth tag this week. I’m so proud and I love him so much ❤️❤️❤️thanks to @hertfordshiremartialarts for giving him the perfect balance of support and encouragement and @emmahoptroff for the guidance and the picture too! #teddytc #martialarts #proudmummy #hertfordshiremartialarts

Quick Pick Tuesday: Smoovall Skin Contact Spray

Disclaimer: PR Sample - I have not been paid for this feature.  Just before my last holiday in May, I got everything waxed and spent the first few days afterwards in quite a lot of pain as my underarms were very sore.  I use crutches, so if you think of how moving on crutches works - with the constant rubbing of the arms moving against the torso - th[...]
