Beauty Empties and New In

Do you know what I miss? Empties posts and videos. I haven't seen one for so long so I thought I'd post about products that I've loved the past couple of months and what I'm adding into my beauty routine for the season ahead.

I'm getting to the point where I'm finding my favourite products and 'me' shades that I will continue to re-buy, I almost feel like a grown up!

Let me talk you through what products I will buy over and over again, what I won't be bothering with and what is new in my beauty routine.

Starting to Feel Like Home

We are fast approaching a whole year in our house, a whole year of being grown ups with a mortgage and a whole year of not having a lot of time to do anything.

It is so frustrating not having enough time to work on the house, we have a to do list as long as my arm that we want to sort but just haven't had time to get round to. We are starting to make progress in the house but every time someone says 'have you had to do a lot of work?' our response is always 'ermmmmm...' and I instantly feel guilty.

Life Lately: August Update

Well it's safe to say that August has well and truly run away with me, it seems like only yesterday that we were patiently waiting for summer to arrive and now it's time to start waiting for autumn. August has been a very busy month for me, both in work and out of work so I've taken this weekend to hibernate with Joe and get some R&R in before an even busier couple of weeks.

I thought I'd sneak this life update blog post in before the end of the month so you can see what I've been up to, it's my only post in August so far, I've been an awful blogger!

Making Time to be Creative

Creativity has always been part of my life, my parents both had creative jobs (my Mum was a graphic designer and my Dad is a sculptor) so we were always encouraged to draw, paint and make. We lived in the middle of nowhere in Anglesey until I was about 10 so a big part of my childhood was pretty idyllic (we only had about 3 channels on TV and lived an hour away from the nearest shops) so we made our own fun a lot of the time making clothes for Barbies, creating huge chalk drawings on the patio or drawing mermaids (my very favourite thing to do).

But as a boring grown up with a rather intense full time job, a house that needs some renovation, a blog, a fledgling business and an attempt at some form of social life, my spare time is almost non existent. I've recently changed roles at work to Head of Creative for our beauty sites which has really helped to give the creative side of my brain an outlet, but as it's all digital, I've been trying to add a little more 'real life' creativity at home.

A Little Retail Therapy

Perhaps it's the changing of the seasons but recently I have been desperate to shop. Like crazy lady levels of wanting to make my own version of supermarket sweep.

But, because we've been trying to save up a bit of money to do some work on the house (such a boring grown up) so shopping has had to shoved right to the bottom of the list, which has actually made me want to do it more. Thankfully Lowry Outlet came to my rescue! They set me a challenge to see if I could get everything I needed for the weekend away Joe and I have planned in a couple of weeks with £100 voucher they very kindly donated to Clare's shopping addiction fund.
