Daytime glam, I’m not a massive fan of an over caked face full of foundation and really heavy makeup so daytime glam is just perfect for me.
I have found over the years with my weird skin condition TMEP that anything can kick it off, packaged food, additives, hair and makeup products, environment ie wind and of course stress so I end up with weird blisters and itchy skin. So I have to careful which makeup I used and to be honest Clinique is the one I aways go back to because I can use their eye shadows and lippys and they don’t make my skin itch and burn.
I love Cliniques pretty easy range and have an eye pallette in browns which I’ve been using for a while for my day time look. I recently added the beach pop Matt lippy ( cute color) and pretty easy liquid eyeliner pen in order to create my day time glam look.
All great products from Clinique go and take a look and let me know what you think. x
Telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans (TMEP) is a rare type of mastocytosis that presents as multiple asymptomatic, flat, reddish-brown lesions on the skin. This skin disorder is caused by an increased number of mast cells entering the skin.

World Mental Health Day – I’ve been on hols from work for two weeks, fully intending to go to my favorite place Skye for a break. However during that time, my lovely Suzie pup has died, we’ve been flooded and it looks like we’re all going to be on lock down again. If that lots not a challenge to your mental health I don’t know what is!. So how do you handle the above? , well I’ve cried ( yes its normal) , I’ve distracted myself and decorated the bedroom ( yes its mind numbing and my knees are bruised from kneeling down ) ,I’ve slept most mornings to 9:00am :0) , I’ve planted five raspberry bushes, harvested the tomatoes, made chutney., baked scones and apple cake Ooh and I’ve written two songs for my band. I must admit, its been a very hard two weeks mentally and I am thankyou for my friends and family, who understand and get me. My advice to you all is, if life is giving you a good old kick, step back, take a look around you, talk to your friends and family , I know sometimes its hard to ask for help but sometimes you just need to and you’ll feel better for doing so. Do what makes you feel happy and remember the most important person is you!. #selfcare#wellness#mentalhealth#reevaluate#itsyourlife

Hey all, I’ve been looking around , well virtually, for a new mattress as ours is at least 9 years old. There are five specific things that I am looking for.
1 – Supportive for both head and back. 2 – comfort, I don’t want it too soft or too hard. 3 – Length of the mattress, I need at least King size as I’m 5:8 and my hubby is 6:4. 4 – Tough enough to support a plus sized babe and chappy. 5 – Quality of sleep.
For myself personally I need a mattress that is going to support my lower back. I struggle to get a good night sleep as I usually wake up with pain in my lower back and shoulders. For my hubby as you know he has a chronic pain condition called CRPS and also Multiple Myeloma Cancer and is recovering from a lung cancer operation which was a secondary cancer from his original bowel cancer. He spends a lot of time in bed resting so needs something that is going to keep its shape, stay supportive and help him to get some good healing rest. Plus we are both big and tall – hubby is 6:4 and I’m tallish at 5:8 , so we so need something firm and supportive and very importantly, long lasting.
I’m quite happy to pay a bit more than an average mattress, any recommendations anyone?
I was talking to an old friend a few days ago and we got to talking about work/life balance and I said that I treat my life as if its full of mini projects, mini challenges. I’ve found as I’ve grown with my role and matured in age that I am able to better cope with stress. If you look at what is happening in the world today, there’ s definitely been a few of those challenges recently. I take each day at a time, yes I have my long term goals and want to be very successful in what I do, but sometimes you just need to slow your pace down a bit and truly understand whats’ important to you. A great actor once said “life is a box of chocolates”, it’s a great metaphor that basically says you don’t know what life is going to throw at you, its not really something that you can control. For instance did we all know we’d be sat in our houses for several months or that we’d be walking around in masks being controlled by a virus, nope I certainly didn’t. Did you? So I say take your life step day by day, do things you love to do, never second guess your choices. Take care of your family and work as hard as you can and remember life balance is everything. Life truly is for the living and you only get one chance at it as Brad Mondo says “Don’t forget to Live your second Life”
