No Fuss Holiday Hair

Sunday, 10 July 2016

When you're going away on holidays, packing is always such an issue. You need to pack enough for days or even weeks but you also need extra room for the amazing things that you'll buy.

I can usually pack my make up quite easily as I like to reach for multi-purpose products. Clothes are always a difficult decision as you need to be practical as well as a fun. 

I find that haircare is easy. You don't really need a lot of products to be able to create some lovely (and practical) hair styles. 

My Must Have Mum Essentials

Thursday, 7 July 2016

Before motherhood, I had all the time in the world to spend on getting ready. But once you have children, suddenly you're not in charge of your own schedule. You have to adapt your routine around feeds, changing and (lack of) sleep. 

Now that I'm a mum of 2 girls, I know all the tricks to getting out of the door while still looking put together. 

3 Minutes Curls With The Irresistible Me Ruby 2 Way Auto Rotating Curler*

Wednesday, 6 July 2016

Since becoming a mum, I have limited time to do my hair and make up so I've had to find ways to cut my beauty time in half. Sometimes this means skipping eyeshadow, eyeliner and bronzer. Other times it means putting my hair into a "messy pony tail" to hide the fact that I haven't brushed my hair that morning. 

One of the biggest tips that I was given by a hairdresser is to embrace your natural hair and work with it, instead of against it. My hair is naturally wavy, so it's much easier for me to embrace my curls and encourage them than try to make my hair super straight.

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things... June 2016

Monday, 4 July 2016

June has been a nightmare month for me. While nothing truly horrible happened, it just felt like one bad thing after another. My husband was away in the US for work, my daughters and I have had gastro and then a cold and we've also had no internet thanks to the workers stuffing up while trying to implement the NBN on our street!! 

I haven't been able to show on the blog or social media the AMAZING products that I've been trialling. So my first post back HAD to be a favourites post!!! 

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things: April and May 2016

Tuesday, 7 June 2016

April and May has been a very hectic time for me. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you'd know that we're doing bathroom renovations. They've been a total nightmare and I've been living between 2 houses which are about an hour away from each other, so I feel like I've spent a huge amount of time sitting in a car for the last 2 months. 

Because I've been going back and forth and I've had to live out of a suitcase, I've been using mostly the same products. I tried to mix it up when I would return home and pack some new and different products, but 80% of the time I would use the same products daily.
