My Second Pregnancy Update | 38 Weeks

It's been a while since I last talked to you about my pregnancy. In fact, it's been more than a while. My last pregnancy update was at 20 weeks when I found out the babys gender. Just in case you didn't read that post then I'll bring you up to speed, we are having a baby boy! It's all very exciting. Many members of my family were so sure I was having a girl. Perhaps that was wishful thinking on their behalf as my first is a boy. As lovely as it would've been to have one of each though, it's just as exciting knowing I am going to have two beautiful little boys to look after.

It's insane to see how much time has flied as I am now 38 weeks & 1 day so it's just under two weeks until little man is due to make his arrival into the big wide world. I have to admit it is becoming quite daunting as time goes by as I am half expecting him to arrive early just like his big brother.

A Few New Beauty Bay Purchases

I very rarely ever treat myself to new beauty products, well, definitely not as much as I used to, that's for sure. With just two weeks left until I'm due to give birth I thought I was entitled to it. I mean c'mon, a girl has to look her best when she's going through one of the most painful but beautiful experiences of her life, right? That's my excuse anyway.

 I was scouring Beauty Bay for quite a while as I was unsure as to what I wanted but soon enough I found myself with a few things in my cart and heading towards the checkout. It made it all the more exciting knowing I would receive my goodies the next day too as I ordered before 8pm. Don't you just love it when you get free next day delivery?

Joan Collins Compact Duo Review and Swatches

If you're not aware of the wonderful and iconic woman, Dame Joan Collins, then I will bring you up to speed. She's a multi talented woman, not only is she a fabulous english actress but she's also an author and columnist too. I was unaware until lately that she actually has her own beauty range called Timeless Beauty which includes cosmetics, fragrance and skincare. Joan created the range with the hope that it will inspire women and make them feel and look beautiful, no matter what age they are. I absolutely love that. 

Now, she has many products within the Timeless Beauty range but for the last couple of months I've been trying out the Joan Collins Compact Duo Lipstick and Powder. Encased within a chic gold compact is the Divine Lips Lipstick in and the Meticulous Skin Perfecting Pressed Powder, complete with a reasonably sized mirror on the left which comes in handy for any touchups. I have the Lipstick shade 'Suzy Starr' which is a beautiful light coral, suitable for even the palest of skin tones. I couldn't be sure if it would work with darker skin tones though. The shade name was inspired by the name of the character she played in the 1980 movie 'The Tales of the Unexpected'. In fact, I believe all of the Divine Lips Lipsticks are all named after many of her famous roles.

Four Products to Achieve a Flawless Base

You may be wondering where on earth I've disappeared to over the last week. If I'm honest I just didn't feel up to it. Writing up a post on this blog was the last thing on my mind after last weeks events, like many others. It no longer felt important and so I decided to take a step back and ease myself back into blogging as and when I felt it was the right time, and that time is now. 

Today I wanted to talk you through four of my favourite products that helps me to achieve that flawless base, no exaggeration. For foundation is the *Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear 24h Foundation(£31.50). If you have read my previous post here then you'll know of my love for it. It delivers full coverage with a lightweight and comfortable feel and satin-matte finish. The foundation blends into the skin ever so seamlessly, no settling into fine lines or creasing under the eyes. It's very long wearing too, which is always a good thing, especially if you want your makeup to last you well throughout the day, special occasion or not.
