An Instant Beauty Fix? | The Lilibeth of New York Brow Shaper

It's always been important for me to keep my brows preened to perfection since I was a teenager. Luckily I never went through the phase of plucking my eyebrows to the extent that they were so thin that they wouldn't grow back. Instead I kept my brows as they were, slightly bushy, albeit sparse in some areas.

I wasn't always happy with my eyebrows though. It wasn't until I was maybe 17 that I started to take pride in my appearance and used tweezers to pluck my eyebrows for the first time. I've always found them super easy to use to shape and define my brows, however sometimes I didn't always get the results I wanted. Hairs would be a little too difficult to grip onto and it was so painful too. As well as that it was a pain to keep on top of the maintenance. They always grew back so quickly, so on I went to try something different.

Harrisons Eight Month Update

So, the last time I sat down to update you on Harrison was when he was three months old(see that update here), but now we fast forward a couple of months and he's just turned eight months. How crazy is that? So much has been happening lately. You may have read that I am expecting again this June(read the announcement post here), just 10 days before Harrison's first birthday so it's been rather hectic to say the least. I always said I wanted to post monthly updates to show how he was developing but that obviously never happened. I will not be able to keep up with it now either which is a shame, although I'll make sure to update you every once in a while with how he's getting on.

A New Makeup Brand | Know Cosmetics

A new brand hit our shores a few months ago, coming all the way from the US called Know Cosmetics. They first launched in Sephora but now they've made their way into our UK stores such as Superdrug and Lloyds Pharmacy. If there's one thing I enjoy more than most about being a blogger, it's discovering and trying out new products from brands I probably would never have heard of before. 

Know Cosmetics is a brand that has the answer to most makeup problems, whether it'd be bleeding lipstick or dark under eye circles.

As far as I'm aware Know Cosmetics have four products available to buy in the UK and I think there are five in the US. I have been trying out all four of the products that we can currently buy right now. Those products in question are the No Bleeding Lips Lip Liner, No Thin Lips Secret Lip Plumper, No Bare Brows 4 in 1 Brow Fix and No Dark Shadows Concealer.

Valentines Day Gift Guide for Her

Valentines Day can mean different things for many people and you'll probably be celebrating it differently too, whether you're single or in a relationship. If you're in a relationship you may be dining out, going on a romantic walk or spending the day inside, watching netflix with a takeaway and a glass of wine in hand with your loved one. I will most probably be doing the latter, except with a glass of good ol' OJ instead. If you're single though, you could be doing multiple things. Perhaps you'll be enjoying a night out with the girls, dining out, staying in with the family or even going on a date. Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a fabulous day! 

 Now, there is just two days until the big day! I know how difficult it can be to buy a gift for your significant other, no matter what the occasion is, however Valentines Day is so much more difficult than a Birthday or Christmas I find. Christmas was just under two months ago so you're probably thinking, 'What can I get someone that has everything?'. Well, there's always something a girl wants, let's face it. In my case there is anyway. Something will always catch my eye, whether it's a stunning piece of jewellery, a brand new bag or the newest makeup launch. 

I have made it a little bit easier for you if you're struggling to buy a gift for your loved one, or your 'galentine'. I have put together a Valentines Day Gift Guide with a few of my favourite gifts that I'm sure any girl would really appreciate on the day.

I've Been Keeping a Secret!

So, for the last couple of months I have been leaving some little hints over on my Twitter that I have a little big announcement to make over the coming weeks, and now today is the day to tell you exactly what I have been keeping secret. We are expecting another baby boy! You're probably all thinking, well, didn't you just give birth a few months ago? And while yes, I did, I unexpectedly fell pregnant two months after, and you know what? We couldn't be happier. It was such a huge shock at first as you'd expect, but it's a good shock. 

I am 23 weeks pregnant now so I am quite far along. He is due to be born on the 7th June 2018, 10 days before Harrisons first birthday so there will be just under a year gap between Harrison and my youngest 'boo bear'. I am hoping that it will bring all the boys super close together. Alfie and Harrison are so close at the moment and it's so sweet to see. I'm sure it will be just as lovely once the littlest one is here.

The Best of Beauty 2017 | Body and Fragrance

Well, I expected this post to be up just before January ended but it didn't go according to plan as I got struck down by a cold, again, for like the hundredth time. Not overreacting of course, haha. As I mentioned previously I won't be doing a January favourites as I was super late on the 'Best of Beauty' bandwagon, but I'm determined to stick to monthly favourites this year. I was all over the place last year and only had at least one or two of my monthly favourites posts go live which I'm so disappointed about. They are one of my favourite posts to write, and I like reading other peoples too. In fact, after reading them my wishlist only get's longer. Hopefully I will actually be sticking to it this time, eh?

Anyway, let's get to it shall we? This is my final instalment of the Best in Beauty of 2017, rounding up all of my favourite fragrances and body products. So what was I loving?
