#FOTD Monday Playing Catch Up

Got load’s done today and I’m starting to catch up with myself on the blogs, plus actually got some work done, I even began to take that washing pile I wanted to bury my head in this morning and I painted my nails!!

Wore different eyeshadow again today in my mission to wear a different colour each day for a week. Today an icey pale pink, minky mauve and deep purple all Dior, plus a touch of liner and mascara then framed brows with hd brows pallette. I like it it goes with my pale pink spotty shirt nicely, well I think so anyways..

Also got to try 2 new make up products from my November Glossybox (Beauty Box Blogs coming tommorow) they were Burts Bees Lip Shine and Lollipops Eyeliner, both of which im loving!

My #FOTD for the weekend

Hey so im sticking to my guns on this whole eyeshadow malarkey, I did wear make up over the weekend but I didn’t have time to blog and only just remembered to take pics on my way to work #CarSelfie

image

On Saturday (top pics) I wore a kind of lilac grey from an old Dior 5 colour palette and then Sunday I wore Estee Lauder khaki and smoked outer edges with a really dark charcoal.  What I have noticed is people are more aware of my eyes as a feature where I’m varying from the normal bronze shades I normally wear, I’m enjoying playing with colour.

#MondayManicure The Sky’s my Limit Mustang Blue

Honestly didn’t look at the name of this polish until after painting my nails, but it’s apt as after today’s Monday morning motivation I’m doing as I promised and making a start to big plans and changes for my businesses.

Anyhow…NAILS!! How devine is this shimmering blue, it’s called Sky’s the Limit and is part of a limited edition Mustang collection created with OPI.

image

I keep smiling at my nails as I type, I picked this colour today not because it goes with my outfit (it doesn’t I’m wearing pink polka dots!) but I was doing some blog photos using my HUGE nails polish collection (for something fun coming up later today) and this was just one of the many I havent worn yet.

What do you think? What colour are you rocking on this fine Monday morning?

My 2 Most Used Products from Antonia Maricondas Build A Beauty Blog Goody Bags!

Check me out two posts already on a Monday morning!  The Monday Morning Motivation is obviously working!

I loved all over everything about Antonia Maricondas Build A Beauty Blog workshop, you can read about it here. The goody bags were jam packed we were well and truly spoilt! I’ve been working my way through all the products whilst settling back into work after maternity leave, but just wanted to share the two products I have used most so far.

image

Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme

What it says on the bottle; Soap Free formula, dissolves make up and impurities, lightly hydrates soothes and conditions.

And it does do all of that, with cotton pads it removes all my layers of make up and daily life plus whatever Freddie (the baby) throws at me! I’m lazy though I want something that does it all and as I found out before I read the packaging YOU CANT USE THIS ON YOUR EYES so me scrubbing away at my panda eyes resulted in 30 seconds of blurred vision, 😂 that will teach me!

What I love about this though it’s a product that says suitable for sensitive skin and it actually is suitable for MY  sensitive skin! I have to be so careful I can normally guess by smell or first contact if a product is going to react on my skin, this cleansing creme glides on, no annoying fragrance, leaves my Skin refreshed and hydrated.

How Much £29.50
Where To Purchase

Rajeunir Moisture Serum

This smooth silky serum slides over the skin and leaves a moisturised barrier feeling to the skin all day.

I liked this product immediately, it promised to save me time as it delivers the benefits of my serum, moisturiser, eye cream, night cream and primer all rolled into one, It balances skin during hormonal changes – something my skin hates, and has the magnificent 7 ingredients you can read all about on their website here.

But then … I fell in love with it after a few days of not wearing make up! I REPEAT NOT WEARING MAKE UP!! This is a big deal because normally when I don’t wear make up I get a sympathising look from a mum in the playground who tilts her head towards me and sympathetically says “are you ok?” or I have a reliable best mate who tells me when I look like shit!  For two of the three days last week I Didn’t Wear make up the only products I used are the two I’m blogging about and guess what …I looked alright. (The third day not so much I cried a lot so had red face puffy eyes…attractive!)

How Much £42.00
Where To Purchase www.Rajeunir.co.uk

I have also used both these products with clients in one to ones, consultations and photoshoots. It’s nice having products you can go straight to knowing that will meet most clients needs and everyone I used them on love the ease of products and the results.

Have you tried withering these products? Or maybe there is something else from Exuviance or Rejeunir you would recommend, I’d love to hear more in the comments below.

Monday Morning Motivation, It’s a Start.

Morning gorgeous people
I’m finding motivation hard this morning, I’m trying to juggle lots my boys need something  constantly even if it’s just the eldest announcing his going to the toilet, the baby needing to launch something at me or the man coming in to moan about something, they don’t need me for any fun stuff this morning! Then there is the housework a mammoth task I’m choosing to bury my head in the washing pile and ignore!  Mix that in with a whole lotta work and plans finding motivation can be tough especially when you don’t know where to start, which is why I thought this was perfect  & may help inspire someone else who isn’t feeling as driven and focused this Monday morning.

Whatever your doing have a fabulous one, Id Love to know what keeps you going and motivates you on days like this!

#FOTD today I was fluttering Pink Eyeshadow

Hey I’ve just finished work (11pm) but wanted to stick to my promise of wearing new eye colours each day for a week. Today I was sporting some pink which I havent worn for ages but I quite like it, makes the blue in my eyes pop, well I think so anyway or do I look a numpty? What do you think?

P.S in some of the pics I look like a drowned rat… It rained in the school run this morning!

Today I’m Rocking Purple Eyes #FOTD

So today’s face of the day looks like this…

image

It has reminded me, that even I get into routines and reach for the same products daily. I don’t play with colour enough anymore, so my mission is to wear a different eysleshadow colour everyday for the next week.

What do you think? How much do you play with colour?

Today’s Make Up looks like this… #FOTD

Morning I went Aldi shopping yesterday (this makes me smile everytime I write it because my other half thinks it’s hilarious to sing “I’m an Aldi shopper” over 50 cents Im a windows shopper haha!)

Anyways there is a point to me telling you this as I’m testing out various make up products from their Lacura range and yesterday grabbed this lippy for a bargain 2 quid!!  It’s more pink than I thought but I’m liking it. I’ll obviously do a full lacura post once I’ve tried a few more bits but for now what do you think?…

It includes new treats like the Lord & Berry Bronzer I received in this month’s Birchbox, the Lacura eyeshadow pallette that cost £4 from Aldi! and the Benefit They’re Real Push Up Eyeliner that I got with December’s very inspirational Feminism issue of Elle Magazine. I recommend you all go grab a copy!

Monday Manicure #ShareACoke OPI CocaCola Red

image

Soooo today I received an amazeballs Birchbox I’m working on the blog for it but at £10 plus p&p this one is so jam packed I’m pretty sure it will sell out quite fast, you can get yours by subscribing here

Anyways I used the gorgeous and intense Coca-Cola Red from the OPI Coca-Cola Collection, this is limited edition (just like my bottle pictured) and so vivid, bright and glossy. I’m in ❤

image

As with all OPI polishes the pro-wide brush and perfect consistency ease application giving an even coverage in just two coats. I am a good girl so of course used base and top coat!
