Our Orlando Bucket List - Update

Orlando Bucket List Update

Walt Disney World, WDW, Disney Castle

We've been back from Orlando well over a month now, yet I've not blogged a thing. So I thought why not ease myself back in to writing with a quick update on how we got on with our bucket list ...

Why I don't love Tarte Shape Tape

Worth the hype - Tarte Shape Tape

Tarte Shape Tape

Tarte Shape Tape is probably the most hyped concealer in the world right now. It seems like you can't scroll through YouTube or Twitter without seeing somebody else declaring their love for it. Tarte claims to sell a Shape Tape every 26 seconds!! So obviously I had to try it myself BUT was it worth the hype ...

Harry Potter Tag

The Harry Potter Tag

If you know me IRL you will already know what a huge Harry Potter fan I am. We're talking the kind of fan that spent ALL DAY in Diagon Alley (at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Orlando) with a lip liner liner lightning bolt scar on her head, a dark mark tattoo and an interactive wand - literally one of the best days of my life!! So when Sophie asked if anybody wanted to be tagged in this I jumped at the chance ...

Disney Haul

Disney Haul

As if you didn't already know, I love all things Disney!! I took full advantage of being in London after we went to see Wicked - which was incredible by the way. I've not been able to get the soundtrack out of my head since - and headed straight to Oxford street for all the Disney shopping ...

Help, I'm addicted to Mac Lipsticks

My MAC lipstick collection

mac lipsticks

Finally, I've only been planning this post for a year! I mean can you even call yourself a beauty blogger if you don't have a MAC lipstick post? I should warn you now that this post will probably be on the longer side as lipsticks are my thing so I've hoarded a fair few ...

Stepping up my blogging game

5 ways I'm stepping up my blogging game

Recently I've been thinking about my blog a lot - working 30 hours a week alongside being a single parent means that it often gets neglected. Being a part of the blogosphere is something I really enjoy and I want to be proud of the content I'm putting out so here's 5 ways I'm stepping up my blog ...

We're going to walt disney world

Walt Disney World


I can't even begin to explain how excited this makes me. People that know me in real life and fellow Disney fan's I've met on line will know that WDW is literally all I talk about all the time. To me, Disney really is the happiest place on earth and WDW is the happiest of these happy places. Some of you may know that my son and I were lucky enough to visit WDW last December (2016) and we had the absolute time of our lives and now we are luckily enough to be going back for an all new (to us) Disney experience - I'll give you a clue; we fly out in October ...

My Anastasia Beverly Hills Collection

Anastasia Beverly Hills Collection

Anastasia Beverly Hills

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (shameless plug) you'll already know just how OBSESSED I am with Anastasia Beverly Hills. I honestly can't put in to words how much love I have for this brand, Brow Wiz literally changed my life!! I love the products, I love Anastasia, I love Norvina, I love the brands ethics, I love their ad campaigns, I love how inclusive they are and I love their creativity - I'll stop now as this post is way overdue as it is, so if you want to see what I've hoarded over the past couple of years (warning, there's a lot of it) then please keep reading ...

Confessions of a retail worker

Confessions of a Retail Worker

This August marks my one year anniversary of working in retail and I've honestly hated every minute of it. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful to have a steady income but the crap retail workers have to put up with is unreal. Here just a few of my pet hates that I experience on a daily basis ...

Pretty Little Liars

Part 2

Holy shit! Pretty Little Liars are FINALLY giving us answers. After last weeks post (PLL unanswered questions) I have literally spoken to anyone that would listen about who A.D. could possibly be and we built some pretty solid theories - that was until this weeks episode ...

Pretty Little Liars

Unanswered Questions

What the fuck PLL - we only have 6/7 episodes to go until you are over forever and we are still no closer to knowing who the hell A.D. is!! In fact there are so many questions that I NEED to know the answers to (warning do not read any further if you are not up to date) ...

Huge USA Makeup Haul

Sephora, Mac, Kylie, Anastasia and Drugstore

This post is waaaay over due but you know how it is, life gets in the way sometimes but I thought 'hey better late than never right'. So in November/December of last year my son and I went to Florida. Whilst there I splurged a little on the brands that aren't easily accessible in the UK and took full advantage of some of the Cyber Monday deals. Over the three weeks we were there I soon lost count of how many times I visited the Disney Springs Sephora and I think I went to every Walgreens in a 30 mile radius - So if you'd like to see what I got, please keep reading ...

Jaspers Guide to Bistrot Chez Remy

Disneyland Paris
Bistrot Chez Remy
A review by Jasper

When dining in Bistrot Chez Remy, it was only right that someone played food critic and I couldn't think of anyone more suited than Jasper. So without further a do I give you a review by the world famous food critic, my son ...

Disney Movies I do not like

Disney Movies 

Before you think I'm a traitor and decide that you'll never speak to me ever again, hear me out. Last night I was reading some blog posts I found through Tuesday nights GRLPOWR chat on twitter and came across a post by thatmumarocks, it was her favourite Disney movies. I really enjoyed reading and thought it was something I'd like to share. So I started to think about my favourite Disney movies and this is where I found a problem; I love so many of them that the post would have turned into a small book - actually, it'd probably have been a pretty big book. So I decided instead it would be easier to write a post on Disney movies I don't like (or just love a bit less than the others) ...

Worth The Hype - Barry M

Barry M Matte Me Lip Kits

Liquid lipsticks are everywhere these days thanks to brands like Dose of Colors, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Kylie Cosmetics. I can not get enough of them BUT good quality liquid lipsticks aren't the easiest things to get hold of in the UK, especially in the drugstore. So when I saw all the hype over the Barry M lip kits I knew I had to give them a go ...

Get to know me

Get to know me

I don't know about you, but sometimes I find it hard to make a connection with beauty bloggers. Sure we bond over our love of makeup and I enjoy reading their reviews etc but there's only so much you can find out about someones personality in a post on their favourite red lipstick (mines Russian Red by Mac btw).
Unlike most 'about me' sections I don't feel any pressure to be interesting or funny or seem like I actually have a social life. I'm not trying to Elle Woods my way into Harvard or impress an employer. It's surprising how much more naturally this comes when you're not having to try and sell yourself. So if you'd like to get to know me a little better, please keep reading ...


The £6 Pressed Pigments

Morphe Pressed Pigments
As soon as I saw Nikkie Tutorials and Carli Bybel talking about these, I knew I needed them in my life. They were super pigmented, a decent size and affordable - sounds too good to be true right? Wrong, they are everything I had hoped they would be and more ...

Worth The Hype? Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Sometimes I forget that reviews (and blog posts) can be short and sweet, so this is exactly what this is going to be...


Disneyland Paris

My Guide to Disneyland Paris

Sitting here this morning in my Cruella De Vil pyjamas, thinking about my upcoming trip to Disneyland Paris, it occurred to me that to me that my Disney knowledge might come in handy to someone that's never been before. Disney is my families thing - any sort of special occasion, we go to Disney. Birthdays, New Years, Christmas and graduation have all been on our list of excuses to go back. My mum and dad spent their honeymoon at Disney World, where they found out that they were expecting me (which may explain why Disney seems to run through my veins). 

This will be my 5th or 6th trip to Disney Land Paris and I still discover new things to do each time we go. So I thought I'd put together a list of my top tips for getting the most out of your time there ...

Kylie Cosmetics Valentines Collection


Agh, if you follow Kylie on snap then you've probably seen the everything that is the Valentines collection *insert heart eye emoji x10 here*. I'm fully prepared to part with my hard earned cash this month for that glitter packaging alone. So, if you want to know my must haves or have a look at the collection yourself, please keep reading ...

2017 blogging goals

My 2017 Blogging and Social Media Goals

I've been struggling to write this post for a few weeks now. Every time I put pen to paper it seems so forced and number focused, almost mechanic and that's not what I want my blog to be about. However, laying in bed last night, inspiration struck - so here it is my 2017 blogging and social media goals ...
