30 things to do before 30

30 things to do before 30

As my friends keep reminding me, as I have recently turned 25 I am now closer to 30 than I am 20! Quite frankly, this kind of scares me as time seems to have gone so fast since I was 16 and seems to go quicker each year. As such, I felt the need to make a list of things I’d like to do before I turn 30. Hopefully I can achieve quite a few of these, so even if the time goes quickly, I’ll feel like I’ve achieved a lot with it!

Sunday Review: Kat Von D 'Everlasting' liquid lipstick

Sunday Review: Kat Von D 'Everlasting' liquid lipstick

I used to enjoy watching L.A. Ink and Miami Ink when I had channels they were available on. To some extent, I’ve followed Kat Von D ever since. I love looking at her clothing, makeup and tattoos on social media, as well as her adorable cats! When she released a makeup range a few years ago, I loved the look of the products! Part of the pulling power for me was the gorgeous colours and ranges, as well as the fact that her cosmetics are vegan and paraben free. Animal cruelty is something that is always at the back of my mind when I’m purchasing new makeup and I also am growing increasingly concerned about using parabens. When some of Kat Von D’s range was finally released in the UK in September 2016 in Debenhams I was delighted! I purchased a ‘Studded kiss’ lipstick in Motorhead, as well as the London Calling limited edition set (which is no longer available). This contained mini versions of Tattoo Liner in Trooper, ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick in Double Dare and ‘Studded kiss’ lipstick in Lolita.

Today I’m reviewing the Double Dare ‘Everlasting’ liquid lipstick.

10 Reasons why I love my husband

10 Reasons why I love my husband

Today is Valentine’s Day and it’s made me think about all the reasons why I love my husband. I think as time goes on and when the dynamics of a relationship change after you have a child, it’s quite common for couples to undervalue each other and not appreciate each other enough a lot of the time. Dave usually reads all my blog posts before they go live, he’s so supportive of my blog (and anything I do, actually). He doesn’t know that I’m writing this one though, so I guess this is kind of my way of saying “I might not always show it, but I love and appreciate you so much! Happy Valentine’s Day, darling!” I know he’ll have a huge smile when this pops up in his inbox this morning. View Post
