Harrisons One Month Update

It's been just over a month since I first introduced you to the newest addition to my family, Harrison. It's been crazy to say the least. The first couple of days after bringing him home from the hospital wasn't the easiest as I was in so much pain and Josh was back at work again pretty soon after. Luckily I had help on hand so those days were made much easier for me so that I could adjust to looking after two children rather than just the one.

Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette | Is it Worth the Hype?

For over a year I had the Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette on my wishlist. I knew I needed it after so many people were raving about it. I got so caught up in the hype around it but I was never able to get a hold of it. It was always sold out online and it was never available in the UK, up until recently this year I believe. It first became available on Beauty Bay but I missed out on so many new restocks which I was so devastated about, but finally, yes finally, a few months ago I bought it without hesitation. I was so so excited once it landed on my doorstep. But the question is, was it worth all of the hype it was getting?

The La Roche-Posay Baby Skincare Range

If you've been a regular reader of mine then you'll know that I'm now a mummy of two brilliant little baby boys. My eldest is two and a half and my youngest is just over 4 weeks old. One of the most important things for me is to make sure their skin is in the best condition, now by that I mean, protected and well moisturised. I have used the same brand for the last two and a half years, Johnsons to be precise. I've never had a single problem with any of their products but I got bored of using the same thing over and over and wanted to try something else. When I was contacted to try out the brand new La Roche-Posay Baby Skincare Range I was ecstatic to say the least. The perfect opportunity to try something different.

Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara Review

If you had asked me over a year ago what my least favourite beauty product was I would've said mascara without hesitation. I just bought any old mascara that I thought would do the job, but I soon came to realise that they were doing absolutely nothing for my lashes. They were lacking in volume and length. In fact they just looked as they did without mascara, pretty non existent. 

Over the last year I have tried many mascaras, some that were disappointing and some that I fell in love with. The latest mascara that I have been trying out is the new Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara. It's completely different to the others that I have tried as it has a patented shaker system which is said to stop the formula from drying out and remain clump-free from first to last use. Whenever you feel that the formula is drying out you simply shake it up and the formula is instantly refreshed. I can't quite tell you if it works or not as I've only been using it for a short period of time but I shall keep you updated.

An Introduction to Harrison

If you don't keep up to date on my social media platforms then you may be wondering where the heck I've been for the last couple of weeks as I've been awol again here on the blog, but it's for a very good reason I promise. On Saturday 17th June our beautiful little bundle of joy Harrison made his swift entrance into the world at 12:10pm, weighing exactly 7lbs. I've been taking time out of my blog to settle myself into being a mum of not one, but two little boys. It is such a big change, not just for me and Josh but for Alfie too as he's not an only child anymore. I am so proud of how quickly he has took to his role as a big brother. I would be lying if I didn't say I was worried about how he'd react towards another child having our attention, but me and Josh were pleasantly surprised. He took to it like a duck to water. 

Alfie is so affectionate and so sweet towards Harrison. He's always asking us if he can hold him and he gives him lots of kisses and cuddles. He doesn't quite know how to pronounce Harrison's name just yet, it's too long a word for him, but for now he calls him baby, which is so cute.
