JOAN COLLINS TIMELESS BEAUTY MAKEUP REVIEW.


Over the past couple of weeks I've been trying and testing a couple of new foundations because I'm getting stuck in a rut and using the same ones all of the time. I was luckily sent a couple of new pieces to try that I would've never thought to use in a million years. I've been trying and testing the Joan Collins First Base foundation and Fade To Perfect concealer. Now when I think of celebrity endorsed brands I tend to think gimmicky, cheap and not worth your pennies. Well, is this the game changer we've all been looking for?

PALADONE DISNEY THEMED QUIZ NIGHT AND PRIZE HAUL!


Last Thursday I was invited along to something that is very special and dear to my heart. I mean, who doesn't love Disney. Yep you heard, I was invited to a Disney Quiz Night with the guys and gals over from Paladone. As soon as I saw the invite I was shouting YES YES YES and begged my partner to book the night off work especially to make sure I could go. And well, yep. I took my partner in crime who knows a little bit more about Disney than me and well... we didn't come last. Or second to last.

MATCHSTICK MONKEY TEETHER REVIEW


I'm sick of the word teething. I'm sick of teething completely. It's gotten to a point where I can't really remember a life where my daughter wasn't teething. We've tried everything. Gels, powders, liquids, teething toys, necklaces, bibs, blankets and Calpol. You name it, we've tried it. It's gotten to a point where obviously teething is inevitable but I have started to give up on trying her with new things. Imogen would rather chew anything that she isn't supposed to to help give her comfort. IS there actually anything out there that will work? Well. We've been trying the Matchstick Monkey to see if there really is something to stop her trying to chew and bite my knees. I bet you're thinking, why is she trying another teething toy if she claims that they don't really work for her daughter? Well, there is method in the madness and let me tell you all about it.

IN THE NIGHT GARDEN LIVE SHOW AND REVIEW AT INTU TRAFFORD CENTRE

In the night garden live ITNGL

Over the course of the weekend I took Imogen to go watch In The Night Garden Live at Intu Trafford Centre. She is such a huge fan of the show so as soon as I heard it was coming to town I jumped at the opportunity to take her. She is only 14 months old but loves the show so dearly and I was so excited for the day to come. So what was the show actually like? Was it worth it?

THE GRILL @ WORSLEY PARK MARRIOTT HOTEL & COUNTRY CLUB REVIEW

Worsley Park Marriott The Grill

Last Thursday I was invited to the Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club to celebrate and test out the new menu at The Grill. I ventured with Claire from Dear mummy bear and a few other bloggers to check out the refurbishment not only the menu itself but the restaurant too. The Worsley Park Marriott is only a 15 minute drive from my home and having never been I was eager to try the food on offer. I was excited and nervous about going to a country club so here is how I got on..

NEXT BABY GIRL SALE HAUL


Not so long ago was the next sale and I wanted to share with everyone what we managed to get from the sale! Due to being on a blog break this is long over due and get this.. I didn't buy any of it! I planned to get up at 4 in the morning and make my way to Trafford Centre to queue alongside a lot of other mamas and fight for the best deals. It's no secret that Next have some of the best quality clothes out there on the market and although a lot of it is resonably priced with some higher priced items it still racks up a good bill. Now. My partner works in the Trafford Centre and was on an opening at work which gave him time to pop in and grabbed the best deals without a toddler by his side. So this is technically his haul. Read on to find out what R bought from Next.

PAPERGANG BY OHH DEER SUBSCRIPTION BOX JULY.


I'm no stranger when it comes to hoarding stationary, especially when it looks so beautiful. Recently I've held back trying to buy more especially notebooks as they're piling up but I just can't seem to help myself! I will use them all eventually.. I think. You see a lot of my friends look to me for recommendations when it comes to stationary, they want what's good for their money, what loks pretty and what I always go back to.
