My first grey hair

Growing old is something that is inevitable for all of us. There’s no avoiding it. No magic clock to turn back time. There is however, an abundance of anti-wrinkle creams and hair dyes available! The day before I ran the London Marathon I was standing in the bathroom of my Premier Inn hotel room staring into the mirror when something caught my eye. At first I thought it was just the lighting, but upon closer inspection I discovered my first grey hair! A long silvery strand of hair that resembled thread you’d find me using on my sewing machine! There… [Read More]

A Night In with Belle: Beauty and the Beast

As a massive fan of all things Disney, it probably comes as no surprise that my favourite Disney Princess of all time is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She’s fearless, feisty, brave and strong, but also feminine, intelligent, kind and caring. For me, she’s the best Disney Princesses because she encapsulates what women should be. She’s not a typical princess, and by that I mean she doesn’t loves pinks, she’s not dim and she doesn’t always falls for the wrong man like most princesses do. I genuinely think she’s a princess that can be looked up to, as a… [Read More]

Beauty and the Beast Parragon Books

Beauty and the Beast is my all time favourite Disney movie. I remember watching it for the first time when I was a little girl and so desperately wanting to Belle! I used to ask my mum to do my hair like Belle and I even had a Belle Costume and shoes to match! Now that I’m an adult my love for Beauty and the Beast hasn’t faltered. It’s still my favourite movie and Belle will always be my favourite princess. So much so that when we go on our family holiday to Disneyland Paris later this year, I’ll be… [Read More]

New Beauty and The Beast Product Range!

Beauty and the Beast Product Range

I absolutely love Beauty and the Beast, and I’m super excited to see the new film staring Emma Watson next month which is in UK cinemas on 17th March. Casting my mind back to my childhood I think Beauty and the Best was the first film I ever felt a connection with. I wanted to be Belle! Her passion for books and her kind nature was something that I truly admired and then, of course, there was her love for her father. So much so that she would sacrifice herself for his freedom. Watching her relationship with the Beast develop… [Read More]

Eloquence Beauty Care Review

I love my skincare regime. Since the age of 25 I started taking better care of my skin. For me this involves ensuring that I remove all my makeup at the end of the day, something I’ve always done, plus I use an eye cream, day cream and a night cream.    Every morning I use a cleanser on my face and now again I’ll treat myself to a nourishing face mask. When I was contacted about reviewing some products from Eloquence Beauty I was a little wary of trying something new, especially when I’ve been using the products for… [Read More]

Mummy, you be the Beast and I’ll be Beauty!

Children have the best imaginations ever.  The games that they make up, the ways that they keep themselves entertained and watching them play can be so enchanting. Our twins have very good imaginations. They’re always making up games to play with one another and with mummy and daddy too! M’s favourite game at the moment is to act out Beauty and the Beast with me. She always plays the role of Belle, naturally because she is after all a beautiful princess just like Belle and I always have to play the role of the Beast! She’ll come running to me… [Read More]

Beauty and the Beast at the Everyman Theatre, Cardiff

Beauty and the Beast is my favourite Disney film. I used to watch it over and over and over again when I was younger. Belle was so headstrong, independent and that gold dress was beautiful! I wanted to be Belle! Now that I’m an adult, Beauty and the Beast still brings me back to those fond memories of watching the film when I was a little girl. I’ll never tire of watching it with my girls. There’s something very magical about Disney films, but Beauty and the Beast is my number one Disney film! When I heard that the Everyman… [Read More]

Simply Red Christmas Nails

As Christmas is fast approaching I thought it was about time that I did a Christmas Nail tutorial. Growing up I was always painting my finger nails, like many other teenage girls, and before our twins were born I embarked on a nail course. Although I wasn’t able to finish the course, creating beautiful, long lasting nails is still something I enjoy doing. Here I will share with you a simple festive Christmas nail look which I call ‘Simply Red.’ 1. Ensure your nails are clean by removing any old nail varnish and grime. Use an acetone free nail varnish remover… [Read More]
