I am Lyndsey, I am a beautician from Belfast battling living with chronic conditions. I want to share my love for beauty with you all and also let you guys in to what it is like to live with debilitating conditions.
I hope you are all well. I cannot believe we are now in February. The year is whizzing by already. As you know I started this year with great plans to do new things. I am doing those, in fact on Sunday I did something huge. I went to a blogger event.
I went alone, walked in the door with shaky hands and sat down with over 100 people around me who I had never met before. I nearly didn't go. I hadn't slept great and had been exhausted from a few nights of little to no sleep. My blood pressure was high, my stomach was acting up. I had plenty of excuses and reasons not to go. Then struggled getting a taxi and uber. So many things were telling me not to go. Just get back in to bed and hide, and try again next time.
Standing there with my coat and bag as the fona cab app finally had a taxi my heart nearly jumped out of my skin, if i clicked accept then I really had to go. I had to tell myself that if I didn't go I would have been depriving someone else of the …
How are we all? Today is the 1st February! I know I cannot quite believe that either. January felt like it was so long, but now I am thinking wow that was fast!
I have been trying so many different brow products out over the years I wanted to share with you my experiences of my first impressions with some of the new products on the market.
I like Maybelline products for the most part, but I have to be honest and say I have never been in love with any of their brow products. I saw the Tattoo Brow, which claims to be waterproof and lasts up to 2 days. So I thought it would be a good one to try. I saw it in Tesco in their 2 for £12 so I also picked up a new mascara as well, because why not haha.
So this morning I sat down in front of my mirror and set about doing my makeup. It is one of those days where I couldn't be bothered doing anything major so i put the bare minimum on so I wouldn't scare my clients and I was done.
I hope you are all doing well and have had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I cannot believe after all the preparation and hype that is it and it is all over. I had a lovely time with my family but now it is back to the daily grind.
I got some new furniture for my beauty room so while I was off I got stuck in to reorganising everything. I am going to declutter and minimise all the products i have. I have far too much for one person and there is just no need for that!! So this year I want to try and cut down on the excess products and keep only what I need.
I am not massive in to the whole New Years Resolutions thing, where people make these ridiculous plans to do things that by second week in January its all out the window. Eat less rubbish, no more caffeine, don't waste all your spare time playing sims.... You know really unrealistic things that are just never going to happen. However, this year I have made myself some goals to achieve this year. Things I want …
So because I miss doing my youtube unboxing reviews I thought I would start doing my reviews over here. I really need to find myself someone to edit videos for me lol. I can pay in coffee and sarcastic jokes.
In the meantime here we go with the start of my unboxing reviews.
This week I received my Birchbox, and because I have been back with them for 6 months I have been awarded Vip status. They sent a cute card to thank me for my loyalty. With this 'huge' honour I get 15 % off any purchases on their website as well as a free gift. The idea of the free gift excited me until I realised that my free gift was a shiny cheap looking makeup bag. This will not get used but thanks Birchbox anyway.
Moving on to my actual box. It is Nutcracker themed, to team up with the new film out at the minute. However I fail to see what any of the products have to do with the actual theme of Nutcracker. In saying that the box is stunning, I love it, I think it would have actually be…
I saw a post on a facebook group recently. It just said, Does no one have a positive story about their Fibro. It stopped me in my tracks. We always hear the bad and how awful living with Chronic Pain is, and don’t get me wrong the life I live is not what I ever expected to live, but I am so blessed to be able to stand up and say me I am a positive story!!
Nearly 7 years ago my life hit rock bottom. My body had had enough. I was working in a nursing home and absolutely loved my job. My body was not loving it though. After months of being in more pain than usual I went to the doctor expecting him to give me a sick line for a few weeks and after a rest I wholeheartedly believed that I would be back at work in about a month. That was not to be. I went from bad to worse while we tried to find suitable medication. The doctor took me off the pain relief I had been on while we tried something else, the problem was we then realised the full extent of the pain my body was actually in. We didn’…
