*Hollow – by Olga Gibbs Review

First off, I know this post is a day late and I want to say thank you to Olga and Melanie for being so great about this being late. They are both such lovely people to know.

Next, let’s address the lack of posts recently. It’s not been a good few weeks for me and everything that’s blog related has unfortunately had to take a back seat. Also the reason that this post hasn’t gone up earlier today, hopefully once the dust has settled i’ll be able to get back into the swing of things, because currently I am running on fumes and really need to recharge my batteries.

Hallow BannerToday I have for you a review of Olga Gibbs new book – Hallow.

My First Mother’s Day

I’m not sure where to start with this post, I think I was actually expecting more than what it was. I was expecting to feel special and the most important person that day, but that was far from what I was feeling. That’s not to say I didn’t have a nice day, I guess I was just a little disappointed.

World Down Syndrome Day: My Story

This post has been a blank page on my laptop for quite a while now, I have thought about writing this post many times, even what would I write in this post or what wouldn’t I write. Every time I think about sitting down and writing this up I can’t help but come to tears, it’s a very emotional subject for me to talk about. There is so much you don’t know about Down syndrome, heck there is still so much that I myself don’t know. I’m not here to tell you everything you need to know, I’m only 4 months in and I’m just taking it day by day. I have figured that I don’t really know enough to be educating anyone on Down syndrome so I’m just going to document my story and my feelings.

blog titleSo keep reading if you’re at all interested in reading about my story.

Tarte Mini Haul

I’ve actually had these for a while, I ordered them just after Christmas but they ended up at  the bottom of a box with the rest of my makeup while I had a big sort out. I finally caved and got myself some Alex Drawers and put all my makeup away tidy (okay, fairly tidy).

blog titleI haven’t had much chance to give everything a go yet so this is more of a look what I bought rather than what I think of everything. Keep reading to see what I treated myself to with my Christmas money.
