A Little Tour of Archie's Nursery

I was scrolling through my blog the other day hoping that some inpirstation would strike (I've had a bad case of the dreaded bloggers block recently) and it occurred to me that I've never shared Archie's Nursery with anyone on the Internet. I know a lot of you who read here are fellow mums or mums to be and I know that I loved reading these posts whilst I was pregnant and I spent way too many hours browsing Pinterest for nursery inspiration. Archie is now two and it makes me a little sad to think that not only is he growing up, but its time to start changing things up a little bit in his room and start making things a little less babyish in there. Theres talk between the hubby and I about upgrading Archie's cot to a bed as he's almost out grown it (he's really tall for his age) and with a new bed I think it's time for a new theme (hello Pinterest). So before everything gets turned upside down and redecorated I thought I would grab some snaps for you guys and myself - Because let's face it, I would be gutted if I didn't have these photo's to look back on in a few years time.

Get the Perfect Summer Skin with GWA Liquid Glow Illuminators

Summer is just around the corner and I don't know if it's just me, but there seems to be a lot of hype and love right now for products that make your skin glow. I know my Instagram feed is full of beautiful products which will illuminate the skin and so many people are raving about the new Sol de Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil which looks stunning, but with a price tag of £35.00 it's not at the very top of my wish list of things I need to buy. It got me thinking about cheaper alternatives and straight away my two favourite Liquid Glow Illuminators from Girls With Attitude came to mind. I've had the two illuminators in my makeup stash for a little while now, but have only really used them as highlighters - But it got me thinking about other ways that I can use them to achieve a really similar look to the more pricey Sunset Glow Oil and I thought I'd share with you my top tips on how I use these two GWA Illuminators to get the most gorgeous summer skin.

My Favourite Bronzers For The Best Summer Glow

Bronzer is probably one of my favourite makeup items, I think because it always gives my skin that sun kissed look and I love holiday looking skin. For me bronzer is a must and its a step in my makeup that I never miss. We have been blessed in the UK with some gorgeous weather recently (I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will stay) and I thought it was the perfect time to share some of the love on my favourite bronzers and the ones that will be a perfect addition to any makeup bag.

Trying Out Makeup & Skincare From Proto-Col | First Impressions

Proto-Col is a brand that I wasn't too familiar with until recently. I had seen a few of their products floating around Instagram from fellow bloggers and from what I had seen thought that the packaging was lovely and the products sounded great. So when the PR team at Proto-Col team got in touch with me asking if I wanted to try out some products I happily agreed. I've been putting a few of their best sellers to the test and I thought I would report back to you all and let you know how I've gotten on. I've posted a few photos on Instagram of some of these items and you guys have all told me that you want to know more about this brand, so here we go.

April Beauty Favourites

Can you remember the last time I got up a favourites post? Nope nor can I and I kind of feel like one is long overdue! I don't know why I don't try and make them more of a monthly feature as it feels like my makeup bag is constantly switching and changing around, especially now that spring is in full force, I pretty much have a whole new makeup bag. Today I've narrowed things down and picked out my stand out above the rest favourites for you...

Primark Bronze Range | Cream Eyeshadow, Highlighter & More

Now that spring is full swing and summer is just around the corner (I cannot wait!) it's time to start switching things around in my makeup bag. I am loving more natural looks, with plenty of highlight and I can't get enough of the golden glow. Which is why I was pretty excited to see a new makeup range on my most recent trip to Primark. Recently I've become a big fan of Primark beauty and I loved their Nudes collection, a few weeks ago you may have seen my review on some of their cream eyeshadows (here). As soon as I saw their new Bronze collection I knew that I had to take a few bits home with me. There's quite a few bits in the range to choose from and I could have easily picked one up of everything! I don't think I did too bad with the four bits I picked up, I've only had them for a few days, but already I'm loving everything...
