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.

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.

Blushtribe Palettes & Liquid Lip

Afternoon all, A couple of months ago I stumbled upon Blushtribe and their palettes looked gorgeous so I figured I’d give them a try – and by try I mean buy them and put them in the drawer because lately Mila doesn’t give me much time to get dressed and brush my teeth never mind put any make up on, but I wanted to put up a first look so you guys can see how pretty they are.

Blushtribe are always bringing out new products so there is plenty for everyone’s taste, they have eyeshadow palettes, lip products, highlighters, eyelashes, brushes and multi-use pigments. You can find it all over on their website.

Are Your Idols Really Worth Meeting?

February 28th already, madness, this year is flying by and all the days seem to merge into one at the moment. I have wanted to write a post like this for quite a while but due to a couple of different things I have never got around to it, also I’m not exactly sure if this is the kind of post anyone would even be interested in reading but seeing as it’s actually been a large part of my life over the past 8 or so years I figured why not write something about it.

IMG_2068If you continue to read this post then just remember that this is based on my own  personal experiences and I know many other people who will both agree and disagree with what I have to say in this post.

So let’s get started with the question I have as my title ‘Are your idols really worth meeting?
