New Blog Post// while I have been travelling around New England my Muma has been busy baking for you guys. Head over to the blog to have a nice cuppa with my Mum. Link in Bio. And don't forget to leave her some love to let her know you enjoyed her company ☕ @underhis_wings
MONYAY 🦄🌸🌟😄 My favourite day of the week as it always feels squeaky clean and brand new! 💖🙌😁 I love setting goals for the week and this week my goals are to have the best first week ever at work, upload a couple of cool YouTube videos, and HAVE LOTS OF FUN 🐒😄 What are your goals for the week? #staycosmic
✨L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator Highlighter✨
Hey girls, my mummy actually give me this wee highlighter a few weeks ago as she had bought it and didn’t really know what to do with it, kind of a result for me as they are retailing in Boots/Superdrug for £8.99, to be honest I probably would have ended up buying it anyway!! There are so many amazing highlighting products coming out at the minute and it can be confusing to know what to buy, what works and what doesn’t.
This wee highlighter is great girls super easy to use for people that don’t want to use the powder highlighters, it is super lightweight and really bendable.
I have been mixing it with my foundation; just a little bit of this product is enough girls you don’t want to be lighting up like a 40 watt bulb lol!!
So take a wee blob, mix in with your foundation and it gives you a lovely radiant/dewy glow to your whole face, add additional product were the light would naturally hit your face.
I would add it just around the top of the cheekbones, a small amount on the corner of my eyes and my favourite place to apply it is above my cupid bow to give a wee sheen above my natural lip line.
It can also be used as a stand-alone primer just under the foundation to add a glow before adding the foundations but personally I would rather have it mixed with my foundation xx -Swipe for more details girls-
It’s a bit of a gloomy start here this morning in good old NI, so here’s the view from our @airbnb from last Monday in Rome (and it’s the last i’ll show....promise)
I’ve a feeling that for all us grammers, the hours to get a good inside snap is dwindling!
New blog popped up last night on our trip to Rome, maybe mentioned that I didn’t find the food that particularly good 😱🙊😉, and yes the hubby said I could include some photos of him for once!!
Head over and have a read, on an alternative review on Rome!
Have a happy Monday!
💤💤💤 Today has been the ultimate nap day for me.
After working 8 days straight, most shifts morning till night and no break inbetween, I've been exhausted! 😴😪
I've basically ate and slept all day 😁. I wanted to go to the gym and do other things but sometimes you gotta just listen to your body and that's what I done.
This week coming I'm super motivated to get more workouts in and each a little healthier. .
I was hanging out down at @titanichotelbelfast today meeting my cousin who's over on a mini break from London with friends. It's so lovely to see your city through an enthusiastic visitor's eyes...she's been having a ball! It reminded me (again) that I really need to do the Belfast bus tour someday. .
It was my second time in the hotel and it once again blew me away with its beauty. You can see through the window behind me the vaulted ceilings & skylights that have been so beautifully restored. When you're inside you get stunning views of the Titanic Museum...what a juxtaposition. (Never thought I'd ever use that big word on Instagram!!!)
And there ends my architectural appreciation. Back in my comfort zone telling you that my jeans & roll neck are @hm sale rail bargains. Jacket is a preloved Primark beauty (wool!!). Boots are @sevenbootlane. Bag is @yoshibags. Bag & boots gifted. #alifetostyle#belfast#niblogger#outfitoftheday#grey#titanic#mumstyle#instastyle#sunday
Quality time 💕
Today was a day spent with my Mummy. A day of shopping, coffee and gossiping. My mother and I can really put the world to rights when we get together!
I'm home with bags full of homeware, including some fab Christmas goodies 🙈 Is it too early to decorate the house? .
I hope everyone had a lovely Sunday, whatever you were up to!
Thank you to Anna @blossomingbirds for tonight and to all my new followers, I will explain what fop is.
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a disorder in which muscle tissue and connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments are gradually replaced by bone
It is estimated that FOP affects about 3,500 people worldwide, or approximately one in two million people. Such statistics may be better grasped by the following example: if a large football stadium holds 100,000 fans, one would need to fill nearly 20 football stadiums to find one person who has FOP. At the present time, researchers are aware of approximately 800 people throughout the world who have FOP.
FOP affects the neck, spine, chest, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, jaw, and many areas in between. The progression of ossification follows a characteristic pattern. Usually extra bone forms in the neck, spine, and shoulders before developing in the elbows, hips and knees. The muscles of the diaphragm, tongue, eyes, face, and heart are characteristically spared.
FOP affects mobility because the body's joints, such as the knees or the elbows, connect the bones and aid in movement. In FOP, extra bone replaces the ligaments (which cover the joints), as well as muscles and tendons (which move the joints). Consequently, movement in areas affected by FOP becomes difficult or impossible
Thank you to everyone who continues to support our journey. @a_littlebitoflife it means so much to us.
I hope you all had had a wonderful day and evening! 😘
So I managed to venture out for a little walk today- seemed a shame to sit inside all day as, believe it or not there was some sunshine ☀️ this is just me expressing my delight to see a field of Christmas trees #64daystillchristmas
Girls today’s lips I have went for a colour that matches my outfit, it is a change of colour for me but I have to Say I really liked it 👄 both products are from ✨MUA✨ range in Superdrug, £2 for both products seriously girls were you get the likes of It!!! The lip liner is the ✨MUA Intense Colour✨ in the shade Dark Thistle, fab we liner girls, nice and soft so it didn’t drag the skin, great colour pigment to it and blends in beautifully to the lipstick I had on, £1 for a lip liner, complete bargain, it even has its own sharper attached how handy is that!! The lipstick I have on is again ✨MUA Matte✨ in the shade Wild Berry, in the tube it looks sooo dark so to be honest I was expecting it be a lot darker going on but I was really happy with the finished result. I put about 3 coats of it first hing this morning and topped it up once just after eating dinner and it lasted the whole day, it says on the packaging that it is a matte lipstick but it went on really creamy and had a good shine to it and was in no way drying on the lips. Super smooth and easy to apply. Again girls £1 in Superdrug. I am such a fan of this range and I can not praise there lipsticks and lip liners enough!! -Swipe for swatches and details-
You will see what I mean about how dark it looks in the tube compared to how it looks on the skin. Xx
We wanted to nip out for a quick coffee today, she throws on a woolly jumper, trainers, no makeup and barely a brush through her hair and I know I'm her mummy and all but dear goodness, she's beautiful 😍
I absolutely love these outdoor lanterns which I found at Larchfield Estate ❤️This week has flown in for us as the kids had 2 days off due to the storm, which appeared again last night but as Brian this time. The tree beside our house took another battering. Anyhow we are on the final countdown to half term. The kids are out early all the week and finish on Friday hooray. I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend 😘
We took to the road yesterday and travelled through the mountains to Vermont. Oh My Goodness!! I have never seen anything more breathtaking in my whole life. It takes a lot to leave me speechless but the views on our journey did just that. I wish we could have captured how spectacular it was but after trying and failing we decided to put the cameras away and just soak it all in. Best decision! We did snap a couple of pics before the camera strike though, I will of course share. 🍁
Travelling with our toddler has been incredible so far. Don't get me wrong, we have had a couple of moments that required time out but on the whole Susanna has been the best little travel buddy.
If you have the fear when it comes to travelling with your little one, my advice would be just do it. They cope far better than you could imagine and it only takes a little extra planning to keep them well entertained. Try to see the funny side in every situation and just go with the flow. It is too good an experience to miss out on. And...the bonus is that nobody knows you so if they have a total meltdown, who cares?! Smile and wave all the way 😂
