Who Am I?

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my world. I have been thinking about doing this for a long time but things just kept getting in the way. Life has a funny way of taking over and before you know it months have passed.

I am trying to be more purposeful and getting things done. I loved doing my youtube videos, but I am not sure I realistically have the time. I love the filming, the editing sucks, I miss my macbook. I loved editing on imovie. Maybe I just don't like this computer because its not powerful enough.. Why am I rambling about the computer. Anyway so I decided that instead of filming all the time I would try blogging. I have a lot to say so I thought this would help.

So who am i? 

I am Lyndsey, I am married to my best friend. We have been together for 14 years. In that time our lives have changed so much but we have grown together and I am truly blessed to have this special man by my side every day.

I am a beautician by trade and I have a huge passion for my work and the beauty industry. I love trying new products and want to share that love with all of you. I run a small beauty salon in the heart of East Belfast. It is tiring and stressful but I love every minute of it.

I have always wanted to show that my life may not be what I had hoped it would be but I am not going to let it ruin it either.

My blog is going to be an all round Lifestyle, beauty and health blog. I want to share the good the bad and the downright ugly parts of my life. I hope that sharing my experiences will help others.

Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!

For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diag…

LMX - Little Mix Makeup Brand Review Part 1 Shout out to my Pout

Hello my lovelies,

I was so intrigued when I saw that there was a new makeup collection exclusive to Boots. LMX is a brand brought to us by Little Mix band members. They have everything from eyeshadows to highlighters.

I purchased a couple of box sets from the Boots 3 for 2 range. Sadly one item came broken. I was gutted but Ho hum, I moved on and just reviewed the rest of the products on their own. I will continue my reviews of the brand as soon as I get my replacement.

So my two items I have thoroughly tested are the Shout out to my Pout Liquid Lipstick and Liner collection (rrp £18) and the Rock in the Gold Get the Look Palette (£14).

Lets start with the lip products, get the negative out of the way early. I purchased this kit of 4 lip liners and liquid lipsticks. I chose this specifically because it was nude tones and I thought well at least one will suit me, how wrong was I. I found them so orange toned, none of them suited my skin tone I was so dissapointed. They tout this as a n…

Living with Chronic Pain: My Positive Story!

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’…
