Less than 8 weeks to go until my little girl is here! I can’t wait and one thing I’m really excited about is going for nice long walks with her this spring and summer. We went pram shopping or ‘window shopping’ to be exact a couple of months ago, and had a rough idea of […]

Current Skincare Routine

I’ve had a few messages and comments lately on what foundation I’ve been using. I haven’t changed my foundation and I’m still using Mac Studio Fix, however I think as the condition of my skin is improving it’s showing in my makeup. It may be the so called glow you can get during pregnancy but […]
