A little catchup.

Hola Lovlies!! 

It's been a while hasn't it? With Michelle embarking on her big move to the city of Man (Or Manchester as normal people call it) & me pretty much hibernating due to a lot of excess in London (yes I know I'm still going on about it!) plus some other top secret exciting things coming up in September, there's not been a lot going on.  

But now I'm breaking out of my wallow phase & seeking a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). This may or may not be helped by the fact that I was given 2 free lobsters & some crab today in work. Cut to me play Barefoot Contessa and whipping up some Lobster Pot Pie! I even made the pastry myself. Mucho self satisfaction going on. 
[Edit] 
My Instagram of the finished article. It was scrummy!
Prizes for those who get the reference ;)

In my hibernation I have also rediscovered my love doing my nails & below you can see my 2 latest nail art creations. I've even vined the mix & match so you can see each stage in progress!

I've got lots of ideas & my "Nail Inspo" is filling up with lots of pretty designs I want to recreate so hopefully they'll be good enough to show off!

Minions!! I haven't named them all yet so suggestions welcome. 

Mix & Match inspired by Sophy Robson & WAH nails!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …
