Missing In Action

Remember me? O yes I'm the owner of this blog. I guess I just wanted to write this little post to reconnect with my blog as I haven't posted since the beginning of the month, but never fear I'm still alive but unfortunately blogging has not been at the top of my to do list.

I have had such a busy month, work has pretty much taken over my life at the moment, working ridiculous hours and then just being completely exhausted. I am loving my job but as I work in events organising Christmas parties is taking up all of my time and energy, I don't wanna moan but sometimes a girl just needs a lie in!

I've also been into hospital a few times over the past few weeks. I won't go into detail but even just going to to hospital takes it out of you, I feel a bit emotionally drained. I have another appointment on Tuesday and I'm hoping it will be the last for a while.

Any way those are the main reasons for my lack of blogging but I do finally have a couple of posts lined up, I've been bulk photographing this weekend while there is actually some good light so they should be up this week!

My fitness journey is going ok, I've not been able to gym for a while because of the doctors orders so I have really been focusing on eating clean. I'm tempted to do some food diary / recipe posts to help try and keep me motivated. Although today has been a right off, Sunday roast followed by chocolate brownie! a very much needed cheat day.

The photo above was taken in Florida, when I saw it it made me smile. I wish it was warm and I had clear skin again! Stress has done nothing for my complexion. Saying that I absolutely love curling up in my pj's with a cup of tea when its cold outside, that's what winter is all about!

What have you been up to lately? How do you fit blogging around your working life?

You Tube Inspired Every Day Make Up

It’s not often I get a night in by myself but when I do I like to make sure I have my pyjamas, cup of tea and laptop to hand. By the end of the night I usually end up with a wishlist as long as my arm and wondering why pay day is still so far away.

Lately though I have been logging onto my laptop and watching countless You Tube videos, especially ‘Get ready with me’ videos. As much as I love make up and have quite a vast selection I still consider myself a bit of a novice when it comes to applying the stuff, eye make up is still my weakness, one day I will perfect the smokey eye!

Below I have added a couple of links to the videos that have really helped me learn how to sort out my hair and make up properly.

After watching this the Naked Basics pallet has gone straight to the top of my wishlist!

Barbara has such great cheek bones and has contouring down to a tee, this is another thing I really need to work on!

I love that Meg uses both high street and high end products,I'm sure 99% of bloggers and beauty you tubers own the Collection lasting perfection concealer, its amazing.

So here is my attempt!
Face: Dr Jart water fuse BB Cream. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, Rimmel Stay matte pressed Powder
Eyes: Benefit World Famous Neutrals Palette, Dainty Doll Eyeliner. L'oreal Telescopic Mascara
Lips: Maybelline Baby lips in Punch Pink
Hair: Enrapture Totem Styler Setting 1-1-1.

What do you think? What You Tubers inspire your look?
