Makeup trial.

I had my makeup trial this week. I was half excited half dreading it because I’m not a big makeup person, and I didn’t want to be full glam and bronzed up like a lot of the pictures I see online as it’s just not me. But on the other hand I didn’t know what […]

Running out of steam.

I think it’s important both mentally and physically for me to remember to take my time, and rest when my body needs it, especially after going through so much the last year or so or I’ll only end up hurting myself again.

Faerie core

I’ve talked about joyous dressing alot on here, I am a big fan, though I am always a little nervous about joining in with some of the challenges. I love to see the outfits and the stories and the inspiration people come up with, and always promise myself that next time I’ll really go for […]

So good it’s noughty.

So over the years I have always had trouble with my scalp. It’s very sensitive, it scabs up and it gets sore and itchy (and bleeds, I know.. gross right).. dandruff has been a pretty constant thing in my adult life. I was always pretty embarrased about it but no matter what products I used, […]

No strings attached.

So I’m home alone while my partner is gone for the week, dog sitting for his parents. I had just reheated some pasta for my dinner and wanted to put something on that wasn’t going to need a big emotional investment from me, so I went to comedies on Prime and ended up selecting No […]

Five years today.

Charlie came to live with us five years ago today! He was around nine months old, a friend of my uncle had gotten him for his family but long story short they couldn’t keep him. That first week was terrifying, he cried, I cried, wondered if I’d taken on too much. But as hard as […]

Wedding prep and pampering.

I was supposed to get married in October 2020, but like many other couples we had to postpone due to the pandemic. We had all the big things taken care of.. but, just in case you didn’t know, weddings are a lot of work! As it’s been over a year since our plans had to […]

Salt of the Earth

So back in April I decided to try a natural deodorant, and wrote about it here. If you didn’t read it, I was basically covering off that I had wanted to try a natural deodorant for some time but was nervous about this as I am naturally a sweaty (yep you heard me) and anxious […]

The undoing.

Just for fun I decided to count how many pins I had to take out of my hair before bed after my wedding hair trial the other day. Then I thought it’d be interesting to see how it looked every ten pins so I took pictures. Here’s before I started, holding up pretty well! Then […]

Bridal hair trial today.

Ok so my previous post was pretty doom and gloom, but that’s how I’ve been feeling and that’s ok. This morning I was dreading my appointment to try some hairstyles for the wedding but silly old me, I’ve never left my hairdressers anything but happy. We had a good natter, looked at some pictures for […]
