Avon Supershock Mascara

This is not a new mascara or anything but it is one I have started using recently so just thought I would share my thoughts. 

I love this mascara much to my surprise, because I didn't think I would. What I like about it is that I'm able to lengthen my lashes whilst adding volume, with quick application.The formula is not too wet but not to dry and I would say the brush was a medium sized brush (I've seen bigger). 
I have missing lashes on one eye (I had an infected stye when I was about 9, that looked like I had being punched in the eye...but that's another story) that have never grown back, so when putting mascara on I have to really make more effort on the eye with the dodgy lashes. This mascara made my dodgy lashes look pretty good, although I'll be honest and say I have being able to get my dodgy lashes looking a lot more fuller and thicker with other mascaras, but I literally have to apply layer, after layer, after layer, after....I think you get the point! I'm able to make my dodgy lashes look as if I never had that stye quickly with this mascara, which is perfect for when I don't have time to faff about. 

                                               This is how the mascara looks (forgot to curl my lashes)

Can you guess which is the eye with the dodgy lashes? You probably can, but if I hadn't of told you about it would you have being able to tell I have missing lashes?

This mascara is great if you want to get results quickly because the brush really grabs each lash and it's as easy to remove as it is to apply.

Have any you tried this mascara before? Can you recommend a mascara that you think would be great for my dodgy lashes?

Should I?.....Shouldn't I?

GlossyBox launched and I said to myself, yeah not going to bother especially because I consider myself quite knowledgeable when it comes to beauty products.
For months I have read reviews and seen the lovely (and not so lovely) goodies people have received in their box and......I think I want to subscribe (I whispered that by the way).

So is it worth it and do you think I should just subscribe?

First Step To Nailing It!!!!

For someone who loves doing all she can to make the best of herself, my nails are awful!!!!!!! 
They go through stages of being decent enough to wear nail polish to being as hurrendous as the photo below (really did not want to post a picture of my horrible nails).
No matter what they split, peel and break. I'm now on a mission to improve my nails and thought I would post my progress along with products and treatments I'm using/have tried every couple of weeks.

   I will keep you updated with my progress.

Back To Blogging!

Hey lovelies!'s being a while. I have had so much going on recently! Blogging seems to have taken a back seat.  At the back of my mind I was constantly thinking "gosh you have not blogged in ages woman" but even when I did have a quick moment I didn't  feel motivated. I think It was a mix of being really busy but also worried about things like my camera quality not being great for doing posts and whether anyone really wants to read what I'm writing about.

I attended TOWIB on Saturday and just feel totally motivated again, listening to everyone talking about their blogs and the pride they have is what I really found most motivating.
As well as blogging about beauty products, doing reviews and all that jazz, I have also decided that I will be blog about my journey to become a 'professional' makeup artist, so I 
will be posting some of my work and sharing my experiences. 

Anywho looking forward to doing many more posts and watching my baby grow.
