Sleek’s new highlighting palette is amazing.

Distorted Dreams Highlighting Palette

 

 

 

This palette has 5 unique standout colours, including 2 powder highlighters which are similar to a gold and a pink, and 3 cream based highlighters which are also in pink (pale), purple (more iridescent in the natural light), and light green/ yellow.

All go on to the skin incredibly well and can be used either boldly on the cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow, or sparingly on the shoulders or dรฉcolletage.

The choice is yours!

 

 

My favourite lip products (NYX)

I swear, that literally this last year or so NYX Professional Makeup have exploded immensely with their makeup, even more so with their lip products.

I have never really been a fan of lip products, as the shape of my mouth isn’t really what I call ‘attractive’, so have always steered clear of anything dramatic or bright.

Then I saw these…

They both go on really well, the colour pigment of the lip cream is amazing, and honestly lasts a fair few hours wear.

I picked mine up from my local Boots stores, but they sell online too and do not cost a lot, these were ยฃ5.50 and ยฃ6.00 each.

Have a great evening

As Frank Sinatra sang so famously… “That’s Life”

I do wonder sometimes, at what point in time will I ever feel complete or at least happy. It doesn’t seem complicated, aren’t we all entitled to be happy? But I for one thought that being happy came at a cost. To who’s expense exactly?

People say, “life is what you make it”, what’s that supposed to mean? I never once invisioned my life to be like it is right now.

Ok, I didn’t do particularly well at school with my education, but I did go on to do college and I did night school for 2 years, but where did it get me?

Im laying in bed again procrastinating about my life now as a 29 (going on 30), mum of 3, and I think. Is THIS it? Is this what my life has become?

I do think I’m jealous of how other people live their lives, the amount of friends they have, their social status etc, I always think to myself, why dont I have that too…

There isn’t really an answer to that question, as I guess other people may be thinking the exact same thing as me.

I have a loving, trusting, caring partner who supports and understands me and three handsome sons, and I ‘probably’ couldn’t ask for more than that.

I guess ‘that’s life’ really, isn’t it?

In a room full of people. No one can hear you scream.

Demons.

Demons of depression is like being in a pool full of water and drowning even though you know how to swim. No one understands.

Everyone says “you look to nice today, with your hair and makeup on” blah blah blah, and all your want to do is scream at them and tell them that your blind at the fact that all I want to do is rip your head off and scream at you.

Ignorance ISN’T bliss.

This isn’t a phase…
