Superdrug Haul

Last saturday the car had to go in for its yearly health check so i took this opportunity to do a spot of retail therapy. I have almost a week trying out the good and so far they are all working wellI had been on the look out for a good matt bronzer and i found this Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze and so far am really enjoying it has a lovely natural colour and will be my go to from now on. Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze £3.00

The Rimmel clear complexion powder has been in my makeup day from day one i try other but always go back to it. I love that it can powder my t-zone which tends to get oily as summer approaches but i can all so set my foundation without looking dry and cakey. Rimmel Clear Complexion in Transparent £3.99

Now i have been really wanting to try the Makeup Revolution Banana Powder but the superdrug store near me has never had it in stock. I have been using this to set my under eyes and am loving it there has been no creasing and it is brighting so i haven’t looked like i have only had an hours sleep.Makeup Revolution Banana Power £5.00

I thought i would give the makeup revolution coloured corrector palette with a full sized mirror ago to help with my mum under eyes and some redness. It blends really nice and conceals everything really well. Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette £6.00

I have had the pink B. Blending Sponge and have really like it so i thought i would try the Precision Blending Sponge a try. Again this will be my new go to it’s doubled in size and was a lot softer than ones i have used before. It blends my foundation really good and gets in all the hard to reach spots leaving a flawless look. Above Dry/Below WetB. Precision Blending Sponge on offer for £2.49

I may have also ordered a few items online before i new we would be going to glasgow.

I have been using the Naturally radiant hot cloth cleanser and eye clean since my last haul and my skin has reacted really well this it so i wanted to try a few other items from the range so i picked up the 2 in 1 moisturiser & serum  and the renewing night cream and after a week my skin is making improvements already. I have been using the 2 in 1 moisturiser & serum in the morning it leaves my face feeling hydrated all day and smooth ready for my makeup. The night cream is thicker but doesn’t leave my face feeling like an oil slick. Naturally Rediant 2 in 1 moisturiser & serum on offer for £2.95                        Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream also on offer for £2.95

Having bought two skin care products i receive this Varace Fragrance free. I wouldn’t like of try this before but as it was part of an offer i am glad i have had the opportunity to try it as it’s quite nice not my usual style but it will be lovely during summer

This may look unwearable but i couldn’t help myself Makeup Revolution Palettes are so affordable they are great for just trying out. but i have used it daily. Although it may seem very out there they blend so well you can achieve an everyday look. I have even used them as a liner and it give a great affect i will definitely be taking this on my summer holidays. Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette In Mermaids Vs Unicorns £4.00Greens, Teals & Blues Purples, Pinks & Dark Blues

How We Met ❤️

With valentine’s day just around the corner i thought i would write about how MrS and i met and became a husband and wife. 

We had been friends for a couple of years as i met him though his x that was a few year below me in school. We had always got on and had a lot in common ( and secretly i really like him 😉) but never thought he would feel the same and as i was in a relationship nothing would happen anyway. 

At the end of 2010 i go be out that my x was having an affair and after all the years on emotional/mental abuse i had had enough and asked him to leave he ashored me it was a mistake and it was over (witch it wasn’t) by early summer 2011 it was the final straw and said if he didn’t leave i would pack up at me and the kids would move away from the area. So he left and i moved on as a single mum of 3 i had such a great network of family and friends we where so happy. 

I had been with my x since i was 14 and he was very controlling so i was finally free to be my own person. In this time MrS and his then partner had split. 

In october 2011 i went out with a girlfriend to a local pub and in walks MrS with a few mutual friends so we all got chatting and playing games of pool and having a great time. After than for the next few weeks we kept in touch chatting online and the phone and as he worked near my house he would pop along for a coffee at break and lunch. It quickly became apparent the feelings i had for him where still there and as it turned out he had felt the same all that time too. Birthday party as dorothy and the scarecrowsJust a few weeks after our engagement 

He was great with the kids he gave them the time of day he would sit and play and chat with them, they never got that from there dad and they loved it. One night after being out we where waking home chatting away and we both just turned to each other and said the three little words “I LOVE YOU” After that this moved fast and on december 10th he got down on one knee and i said “YES” All out family’s where super happy and we set a date for 10th of August 2012.

I Do

Planning the wedding was fab everything fell into place like it was ment to be. I woke up on the morning of the wedding with a wee bit of panic because of my dad adding extra guests at the last minute and i wasn’t sure if the venue had been notified, but after that moment past things went great the morning was just like i had imagined.                                        I will always remember this photo being taking that is an old couple in the distance that just happened to be standing there at the time. It almost feels like its was to symbolising us in the future. 

As i stood waiting to walk down the aisle i was shaking from pure excitement or from the lack of oxygen getting to my legs after my dad fasting me in to my dress. As i walked towards him with a warm smile on his face i felt safe like know one could ever hurt me again. Our day was magical life was perfect. A few days later we headed of to Lanzarote’s Puerto del Carmen for a week of sun, sea and newlywed bliss. My flip flops & sunglasses 

Things fall in to place. 

Sunday morning was a blur of kids fighting over the cereal and milk getting ready for a family walk.https://www.visitmoffat.co.uk/things-to-see/grey-mares-tail 

My brother-in-law was up from teeside so we instead of laying about doing nothing with our sunday we wrapped up and headed of for a walk up the UKs 5th highest waterfall Grey Mare’s Tail and what a adventure we had the littlest little walked up at least 3/4 of the way before getting a wee bit of help from daddy.
The weather was dry with snow on the hill tops very pictures perfect, as we walked up the mist come in but soon as we walked around the corner at the top the sun came out just like something from a movie it was breathtaking and it might sound typical, but the first word we all said was “WOW”The sun came out at just the right time Breathtaking view

As i stood on the bank of the loch breathing in the fresh air a moment of peace fell over me and for just that minute i felt like the only one on top of that hill. Everything made sense the things that’s been spinning around my head stop and things fell into place. The people in my life that keep letting me down, that’s never there, that don’t take the time to see how we are. Even though we are family doesn’t mean i have to keep them in mine or my children’s life we have plenty of family we can rely on. 

So with this new sense of peace we will move forward with our life and plans for the future with no upset and heartache. 

As we set off back down the hill MrS have the call of macdonalds so why not! with all that work climbing the hill it couldn’t hurt. 

Arrived back home in time for bath, supper and bed that was welcomed by us all no argument. (Best nights sleep for a while) the littlest slept right though to 10am and was ready for bed at tea time on monday. This might just have to be a regular family activity. 

To round our sunday up it was a fabulous day enjoyed by us all and i have learned that it’s not just negative thoughts i need to let go of but negative people and once i had done this life felt easier. 

As for the waterfall it’s a must see absolutely stunning.
