Win A Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Lately I've been trying out a lot of new makeup products to see which I prefer the best. It's been a nice way to find brands I wouldn't normally try, and check out some products in different styles. But, what's better than trying out new makeup looks. Well that would be, trying out new makeup without paying for it. 

I do love trying new brands, new products and everything in between and so I follow sites such as WOW Free Stuff UK as they always find some amazing freebies and run some fab competitions. It's great when that post arrives and hiding amongst is a cool freebie, even better when it becomes an essential after finding that it's perfect for you.


Femme Luxe Clothing Haul

Yves Saint Love Graphic Print Slogan Tee and Cargo Pockets Skirt

I have worked with Femme Luxe many times in the past on the body confidence section of Adventures of a Yorkshire Mum, and this month, they also wanted to work with me on here too. I picked out quite a few items, and split them between 2 posts, dresses over there, and everything else over here. 

Describing themselves as a 'current, classy and forward thinking online fashion brand', Femme Luxe produce clothing that can be worn for a night out, day wear and on special occasions, as well as just for relaxing in whilst at home.


A Spa Day And Afternoon Tea At Crowne Plaza Leeds

I't's not often I have a day to myself. Things can be pretty hectic in life these days. Between sorting the kids, working and going to the gym almost daily, I don't have much spare time. But every now and then, you need to make time for yourself.

Recently, Buy A Gift asked me if I wanted to try out one of their experiences as part of my Mother's Day gifts post, a spa access day was an option, and so I decided to take this, and enjoy a day of relaxation.


The Glossybox Mother's Day Limited Edition Gift Box

Glossybox are amazing when it comes to creating limited edition boxes for special days throughout the year, and it seems Mother's Day is no exception as they revealed their gorgeous Mother's Day edit. This limited edition skincare and makeup gift box worth over £100, retailing in the UK only. The beautifully designed box is on point and the brands included are really special.

You can just feel the Mother's Day vibe in all the products that have been included and I am certain that this would make an amazing Mother's Day gift. With brands such as bareMinerals, Laura Geller, Clarins and Yankee Candle are all featured in this Glossybox Mother’s Day 2019 edition box, there's a lot to get stuck in to.


My Wedding Guest Outfit

We all have to walk that fine line eventually when it comes to deciding what to wear to a wedding. It's like, you want to look stunning, somewhat beautiful, but still appropriate for the wedding. I mean, you want to be remembered for the right reasons, and that's not for upstaging the bride. 

For men, this is fairly easy to remember - he should wear something to complement the groom's without matching exactly. So that the one that stands out, is the one celebrating his nuptials. Coordination seems to be key and so a nice suit that is similar in colour to the grooms, a fancy shirt and then finish with a matching tie and pocket square.


A Seductively Adult Valentine's

From the rude and raunchy to the saucy and sensual, if you're feeling more naughty than nice, then treat your other half to one of these seductive gifts on February 14th.


I Resent My Post-Birth Body

Many women, like myself, are left with scars, stretch marks, and loose skin after giving birth and this is a reality that women themselves often try to hide, and that the media never wants to show.

After having three children I can say that I have very low self-esteem and regularly wear clothing that hides my lumps and bumps. Even nearly 4 year after birthing my last child, I still hide those scars that brought him into this world. 

We're told that we should be proud of our bodies, that we should wear our tiger stripes with pride and that we should be proud of how our bodies have grown children, but it's not has to start to resent how much your body has changed whilst also being proud of what it has achieved.
