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!

Sad News…

Hello Lovelies,

For those of you that don’t follow me on Twitter its with a heavy heart I tell you all that on 14th June 2014 I lost my little one.

Its been a tough month and I am still in the grieving process hence the lack of blogging.

Anyone that has suffered a miscarriage will know just how painful it is especially when I was 1 week away from my 3 month scan.

The doctors have said that there was no particular reason for the loss I was just very unlucky.

For those of you that were aware and have passed on your lovely messages I thank you for your kind words and support.

Normal service shall resume shortly as I have some posts in the works along with my IMATS haul.

Two Funerals, A Birthday and a Head Injury…. Its been so long!

Well Hello My Gorgeous Readers,

It has been a fair few months since I have sat down to write to you and lots has happened some which you can guess from the post title.

Granny and her husband Stan

I started the year losing my ex’s Gran she lost her battle with Lung Cancer and passed away on January 6th. I had a lot of respect and love for Granny she had been in my life since I was 16 so, It was a very hard saying goodbye and even harder seeing my in laws for the first time in 2 years. Thankfully my amazing best Friend Tom was there to hold my hand, wipe away my tears and cuddle me, I don’t think I could have got through that without him.

I got a little wrapped up in family at that point as I am sure you can understand and when I was ready to come back and start bringing you reviews, looks and even videos I lost my Uncle Kevin and my world fell apart a bit. Uncle Kevin was my favourite Uncle I had an awful lot of love for him for things he had done for me throughout my younger years and I always used to stay with him, his wife and my two cousins when I was younger. The hardest thing about this situation was that my Dad and Uncle Kev weren’t on speaking terms so, the lead up to his passing was very difficult having to see how distraught my Dad was especially when he thought that he may not get to make peace with him as Uncle Kev was unconscious.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – A Personal Post!

Hey My Beauties!

I wanted to do a post about Breast Cancer Awareness Month and wasn’t quite sure what to post so, I thought I would do more of a personal post.

I currently have a small lump in my breast, should I have started it that way? Straight to the point I suppose, No I haven’t yet been to the Doctors which means I don’t know if its just lumpy tissue, a cyst or the big C. I know many of you will sit there and think silly girl go to the Doctors now but read on a little and you may understand why I leave it a few days.

I have been on the at risk list for around 5 years, my Mum had Breast Cancer when she was 35 and I have had several lumps in my breast since since I was around 21. I will be screened earlier than most women because of this and when I do find a lump I get seen very quickly.

The reason I leave it a few days is because the previous lumps have been nothing or mastitis so, usually in a few days the pain goes away and the lump reduces in size until its gone.

This time is a little different as it is in the other breast that I have never had a problem with and the lump is fairly large but I still want to see if it goes down by itself before I really start panicking.

I would like to say to all women that read my blog if you don’t check your breasts regularly you should! And most certainly if you discover a lump for the first time painful or not get yourself straight to the Doctors.

I am pretty sure mine is nothing but of course it is better to be safe than sorry so, if the lump is still there Friday I can assure you I will be straight to the Doctors going through my usual examination and referral to have a biopsy and scan.

I may seem calm in this post but like anyone I am shitting myself but I look back at the past 7 lumps and chill out a little.

I will keep you updated on the outcome!
