Five Beauty Things I Suck At
It occurred to me that despite having had this blog for just over four years (wow, that's flown by?!) there are some beauty things that, quite frankly, I suck at! Unfortunately, we can't all be good at everything and I suppose that's what makes life interesting, or so they say!

As a blogger who posts predominately about beauty, I always think people expect me to know a lot about beauty and makeup in particular but in reality when I started this blog I was a complete beauty newbie with not the slightest idea of how to apply most products. I have had to teach myself a lot of techniques over the years, as well as picking up hints and tips from various blogs and YouTube along the way. Four years down the line and I am still learning and soaking up information and although I am a lot more acquainted with the whole beauty thing now than I was back then, there are some things that I just cannot grasp for the life of me.

Let's Catch Up Life Update
Hey, where did January go? I swear it was the end of November only yesterday. I missed the majority of December's excitement and the build up to Christmas due to personal reasons and blog wise, I only managed to get one post typed. I then done one post in January and had been planning on doing more but life just kept getting in the way and those things have to come first for me. My blog is my hobby and sometimes it has to take a back seat, I hope you can all understand that.

How I Lost Two Stone in Three Months

How I Lost Two Stone in Three Months
The beginning of a New Year for a lot of people means making resolutions, usually ones we fail to stick to if you are anything like me, with one of the most popular resolutions being made having something to do with weight loss or being more healthy. I have to be honest and say this is probably the first year where losing weight has not been a resolution of mine in fact I haven't actually made any resolutions this year or the past few years come to think of it as I tend to break them fairly quickly and end up feeling like a failure. I do like to set goals for myself and keep a list of things that I wish to work on and achieve during that year which is exactly what I have done for 2017 with one of my main goals being to continue on my weight loss journey which I started last year.

An Explanation...

An explanation of where I have been lately
You may have noticed the complete lack of blog posts from me lately and I feel I have to apologise for this and offer some sort of explanation, well as much as I can anyway. December was not a good month for my family, I can't really go into detail I'm afraid as these things don't just affect me personally and you know I would tell you if it was only my story to tell but it's not, far from it. These family issues were thrown at us and they had to be dealt with and we are continuing to deal with the aftermath of them which has meant unfortunately that the blog had to go on the back burner for a while, a lot longer than I would have anticipated.

The beauty of having a 'part time' blog is that this isn't my main source of income which means that when things crop up life wise, I can afford to down tools with my blog and deal with life and my blog patiently sits and waits for me to come back and show it some attention again. I didn't plan on being away from my blog for so long but a number of things cropped up one after the other and it seriously felt like we were being hit left, right and centre with blow after blow of bad news. Things have settled down slightly now but, as I said earlier, we are still having to deal with the aftermath of everything and sometimes that can be harder to digest.

During my time away, I signed into Blogger a handful of times and started drafting a couple of posts which I hope to continue working on and publishing throughout January, this post is actually one of said drafts so I've managed to complete one already. I have a number of posts that I want to get up including a 'How I Lost Two Stone in Three Months' post, a long overdue Slimming World update and numerous beauty related posts including reviews. I may even sit down at some point and do an update to my 2016 Goals to let you know how I done with these and it may even be time for me to write out my 2017 goals.

I don't know when I will post again but I am hoping that as things return to as normal life wise as they can be, that I will be able to throw myself into my blog again and start posting more regularly, a lot more regularly than I did throughout the whole of 2016 anyway! I have missed blogging and I am looking forward to getting back into it.

Top Five Under A Fiver | Budget Beauty

Top Five Makeup Products Under Five PoundsWith the cost of living seeming to be higher than ever at the moment, it can make treating yourself to makeup and beauty bits a tad tricky especially when there are bills to be paid and a family to be fed. I don’t know about you but one of the first things I tend to give up is treats for myself as they can work out pretty expensive when you add up the costs. Today I thought I would share with you my top five makeup products which cost under £5.00 meaning that you can easily continue treating yourself even when the funds are lower than normal. At the moment there is a lot of makeup brands on the market with products to suit all budgets but unfortunately not all of the lower cost products pack a punch in terms of quality so you could end up wasting your hard earned cash instead of investing it wisely. We all have different qualities we look for in makeup but these five products are ones that I would recommend picking up and trying as I think they are good quality for minimal spend meaning that you can afford to treat yourself every now and again.
