With Christmas fast approaching it’s now all about the parties. Whether it’s a works Christmas party in a fancy hotel, a gathering of friends at the local village pub, a carvery with family, or the inevitable New Years Eve “do”, they all require a higher level of beauty preparation than I am ordinarily used to. […]

The moment the nights begin to draw in, the leaves tumble elegantly from the trees, the heating judders back into action after a well deserved summer break and we start to consider swopping back to the winter duvet, the inevitable happens; the lips start to chap and the hands suddenly feel like paper mâché. We […]
The past few months have been somewhat challenging on so many fronts that if I started writing blog posts on them I literally wouldn’t shut up for hours. So to cope with the lack of control I’ve had over half of my life this year, I have taken control of my weight and health. I […]
Us brits are so completely pre-occupied with the weather for the following reason: We get a heat wave for a month, yet the second we elect to head for the coast to enjoy the weather by the seaside it absolutely pelts down with rain. It’s completely illogical, and you can NEVER rely on the weather. We […]
It’s all about confidence. You can look a million dollars, but if you don’t feel it then it just isn’t going to work. It doesn’t matter how much money you do, or don’t, spend, if you still don’t feel confident you won’t look nearly as good as the girl that’s spent half as much on […]
Beauty is not just about the outside, it comes from within. That is, at least, what I am led to believe. The more water you drink, the healthier food you eat, the more exercise you get, the better your skin will look, the brighter your eyes will be and the better you’ll sleep. In short, […]
Hi! This is my ninth beauty round-up; can you believe it? Doesn’t time fly when you are juggling having fun?! I have been so incredibly busy these last few weeks; so apologies for the delay in this month’s round-up. The day job has somewhat taken over from blogging duties (I’m an accountant, so it’s been […]
Hi, It is all about the holiday preparation now. The countdown has begun. I have calculated that I need to do a work-out pretty much every day for the next three months to have any hope of squeezing into last years tankini. I also have a planner from an arguably obsessive friend which sets out […]
I woke up today and realised, with something resembling surprise, that it’s already the 14th March. In a very confusing time-travel manner it will actually be the 15th March when you read this, meaning that we have, in a manner of sorts, time-travelled to communicate with each other. It’s a HUGE pity that I can’t […]
It’s still snowing and I’m fed up with it now. Why do I care about the weather? It’s doing horrendous things to my skin. My lips are mimicking the Grand Canyon in texture, my hands are soaking up hand cream like sponges soak up water and my cheeks are pink from having the heating on […]
This month the BritMums bloggers are all about the moisturiser. Not surprising given the drop in temperature seen in Britain since Christmas. It was apparently -10 degrees Celsius last night – *shiver*. So read on for the best beauty posts that have graced my screen this month on the best moisturisers (and some other products […]
Did I get new beauty products for Christmas? Of course I did! I have myself an excellent manicure set with a brilliant selection of 20 different coloured nail varnishes and I was lucky enough to also get some new smellies to try; a Botanics gift set, a range I’ve been meaning to try for […]
The time for this month’s beauty round-up has crept up on me ninja-like with the greatest of stealth and noiseless slippers. Regular readers of my blog, or more likely my irratic and irregular tweets, will know that I started a new job last week. Not only is it a new job, but it is […]
We may not be in school anymore, but September still brings with it an energy and impetus to get things done. This month is all about shedding the pounds. No, not because we are spending it all on Christmas presents already (though I know you are), no, I mean pounds in weight. I’ve followed […]
Welcome to the second Britmums Beauty Round up. I hope you enjoyed last month’s selection. This month I’ve been getting over excited about Shellac Nails. Check out my review and pictures here. For those of you that haven’t yet heard of it; it’s a new nail polish, that comes in a usual nail polish bottle, […]
Hi! I am, in the words of an increasingly northern sounding Midlander, right excited to be bringing you the first Beauty round-up! I am such a clueless geek when it comes to make-up, hair, skin care etc etc etc. I didn’t wear make-up AT ALL until I returned to work after my first maternity […]
