Where have I been….Back, Wrist and Makeup Atelier Paris at Professional Beauty

Hey you gorgeous lot,

I am sure you have noticed that I have been MIA for the last 10 days or so and that’s because my health has had a bit of a turn for the worse.

I have suffered for 13 years with 2 prolapsed discs which seemed to fix themselves during pregnancy but, now they have decided that they would prefer to pop back out and sit on all of the nerves running down my legs. I have been in so much pain that I have barely left my bed 🙁

To add insult to injury there is also something wrong with my left wrist, I am currently having tests to rule out rheumatoid arthritis.

So, as you can see from being one handed and in constant pain I have become a little behind on posts.

I was feeling a little better so, the past 2 days I have worked at the Makeup Atelier Paris booth at Professional Beauty, once I have recovered I will be back posting again.

I have some great brands coming on the blog over the course of the next month so, keep your eyes peeled.

Until we chat again I will leave you with our handsome model from yesterday at Pro Beauty, Enjoy!

Body Confidence

Body Confidence

The only recent picture of myself that I actually like!

This is a bit of a different post for me and will be quite word heavy but, I feel my current body confidence is something I need to address as a way of being fully transparent and honest with you my wonderful readers.

Those who have followed me from the beginning will know that I have always struggled with my weight and I have always been on the larger side, Its in my genes I wasn’t born to be skinny. I come from a long line of bigger ladies and for the most part I have never been ashamed of how I look.

Since returning to blogging 6 months ago I have found myself putting off doing makeup looks, which was something I used to do quite regularly, I found myself making excuses like “I haven’t had my eyebrows done” or “My roots are too long” or “My eczema is too bad” and so on. It wasn’t until I really thought about it that actually my reasoning behind not doing the looks anymore was because I didn’t feel comfortable in my current skin. View Full Post

Makeup Studio/Home Office Wishlist – Panasonic Camera’s, Storage, etc| Ad

Makeup Studio/Home Office Wishlist

 

As Pete and I are in the process of looking for a new place and I am already on the hunt for a new camera I thought I would do a wishlist post for you all. My current blogging set up is a portable softbox along with compact Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS18 for on the go use and a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 for all of my blog images. Both cameras are now around 6 years old so, I am due an upgrade.

1. Panasonic DMC-LX7 £265– I have always had such a great experience with Panasonic Cameras that I wanted to stick with the brand so, I have been eyeing this little baby up to replace my current on the go camera. This particular camera dosent have the largest zoom or highest mega pixels but its perfect for what I would be wanting it for and within my price bracket for a point a shoot camera. Panasonic do do a great selection of point and shoot cameras ranging from £239 – £519 with a new 4K camera coming later in the year. You can check out Panasonic’s current compact cameras here.

2. Hilka Pro-Craft 7-Drawer Cabinet £289.99 – I chose this over the blogger fave, the Alex Drawers from Ikea, mainly because I wanted something more sturdy and longer lasting. As I do makeup for a living I need to ensure that my products are well protected and these types of drawers would certainly offer that benefit, plus they are on wheels. I think they look very sleek and smart and would fit perfectly with my preferred decor of greys, white and black. View Full Post
