Mauve Makeup Medley

There was a time that if someone described something as 'Mauve' I was instantly turned off it. It just wasn't my shade & I knew it. BOY was I missing out!
It turns out that mauve is a great shade that suites basically everyone (particularly pale people like me). Who knew? Okay, I bet a lot of people knew but I didn't. These are the products that opened my eyes to the awesome-ness of mauve.

Starting with the product that started it -

Sunday Post: Muppets, Perfume & Midi Skirts

Happy Easter. How nice was the weather this week?
I got to go out quite a bit this week, despite my wheelchair being in for repairs/diagnostics....I went out to take the outfit photos, I went to see Muppets Most Wanted & I went to the park to see the cherry blossom. Plus I have been internet stalking a skirt & my Easter present had nothing to do with Chocolate.
Erm, starting with the Muppets movie...

La Nouvelle Belle

 
 Okay, so these aren't the greatest pictures. I know that. I tried something different because my normal wheelchair is in the shop being repaired & my old manual wheelchair is.....horrible. I mean it is manageable but I will never complain about my chair again. She is a true hero. My chair that is - all wheelchairs are ladies, much like ships and cars.

Review: L'Oreal Liquid Lipstick

I am not ordinarily a big liquid lipstick person...or really a gloss person. I do, however, have a soft spot for the YSL Glossy Stains that I have wanted for ages but have never gotten around to buying (£23.50 always feels like A LOT of money). So when these liquid lipsticks came out & people were saying it was a dupe...I had to try it out.
I don't know that this is a dupe for the Glossy Stains (only having tried them once) & they don't seem to stain that much (although if you saw the instagram picture of my arm after swatching you'll know that they do stain just enough to be annoying).

Sunday Post: Daffodils, Detectives and...the rest of the week?

Hi guys, I thought I'd start off doing a Sunday post. I always love these posts on other people's blogs so I'm going to start doing one. It's a good place to include my nerd things you know?

Wheelchair Fashion: Bag Full of Joy

 
This being the first week of the Easter Holidays we decided to go out (as a treat) to have some lunch & go to the cinemas....didn't quite work out that way as I didn't have enough energy to go to the cinema in the end but it was nice to go out as a family. Any way whilst I was out I grabbed a few pictures for a post....

Hart of Dixie Makeup Tutorial: Zoe Hart

I told you guys I'm obsessed with Hart of Dixie, well this is just the latest manifestation of that obsession....a mini series of makeup tutorials. Starting with Zoe Hart.

Photos do not belong to me, they are screen shots from Hart of Dixie Episodes
Okay so Zoe Hart has makeup that....well I'm sure it is very New York-y but it is not something I would ever wear. Until this tutorial that is. This tutorial that includes me applying bronzer (well actually you don't see me applying the bronzer because nobody needed to see that but I honestly do apply the bronzer.....it wasn't pretty let me tell you :)

Review: No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter

So highlighter....obviously not a required makeup product but one the people with round, undefined face (like mine) might want to invest in. The point of highlighters is that they make the part of the face that you put it on look more prominent...so if you have rubbish cheekbones highlighter makes them noticeable, or if your nose is as flat as mine this is a lot cheaper than plastic surgery lol.

Unfortunately for my flat nose, my skin eats up highlighter. Usually highlighters have to be very strong for it to do anything for me....that is, until I bought this highlighter.
I have to admit, I did not intend to buy this highlighter. I had heard all the hype but I really didn't think it was worth even trying,

Wheelchair Fashion: 'Hot Wheels'


First of, thank you to Pricilla of  the blog 'wheelchair mommy' & Alexandra of Into The Woods for helping me name this look. I really struggle with that part of outfit posts - quite happy to take photos, edit them, post them etc but naming them? That's where I almost give up, everytime. Thankfully social media, & two of my all time favourite bloggers came to my rescue lol.
Anyway, I know this is my SECOND 'posh dress' outfit in as many weeks but it's starting to warm up & all the pretty dresses I got over the winter are getting their first proper outings. This dress I actually got before Christmas & had only gotten to wear inside or underneath heavy coats until now. But now...

March Beauty and Random Favourites

My monthly favourites this month are all things I ADORE. This shouldn't be called favourites it should be called something like 'monthly amaze-ball product rave'. Or not quite that but believe me...that's the gist. I'm not crazy believe me....okay, maybe a little.
The products I mention are particularly good. Plus Hart of Dixie is the BEST - not fantasy/sci-fi - TV series I've seen in basically forever. And these Kinder Chocolate with Cereal bars are INCREADIBLE....I'm not sure I could live without them anymore!
