Wow!! What a hectic but fun few days!🙂 The plan was to get some posts scheduled, but of course that didn’t happen! So I thought it’s only right to share with you our little weekend away! 🙂
Rylies first & longest car journey to Cardiff to see friends. From where we live it’s a good 5 & a half hour journey. We picked up Rylies brother & sister from school & headed straight to Wales on Friday 28th September. All 3 kids slept quite a lot of the way. Of course we stopped at services about half way as we all needed feeding.
This photo was taken as we were going on to the motorway from York. There was a kite festival on that day.
Once we arrived to Wales it was nearly midnight. We were staying with friends so we had a chat & went to bed. We were all knackered by this point!
Saturday 29th September
We had a chilled morning then went to St Fagans National Museum of History. It was a lovely day so we all enjoyed the walk round.
It’s an open air museum showing historical buildings & lifestyle. It’s crazy to see how much things have changed.
For the rest of the day we just enjoyed being away & seeing our friends as we don’t see them often. The kids played & seemed to really enjoy it until Sunday afternoon came when we had to leave for home.
We really enjoyed our little weekend away! Its nice just to get away for a couple of days sometimes & get a chance of scenery🙂
The #MakeupAndASmile campaign was started by the beautiful Sophie of Life of Little Things blog. I wanted to show support by helping to raise awareness of this subject as until you go through this or know someone that has, you can’t really understand how people suffering from an illness really feels when you say they look ‘fine’.
#MakeupAndASmile So many people are affected by mental & physical illness now a days. Please don’t judge a book by its cover! Looks can be very deceiving.
Someone may look or say they’re ‘fine’ but inside they’re probably screaming out. Wanting to tell the world how they feel but not knowing how to put it in words. Or worrying that they’d think they’re stupid. Let me tell you, your feelings are not ‘stupid’. It’s human to have emotions, but sometimes they get the better of us, especially if daily life is made harder for whatever reason!
Illnesses, which ever form they take, are all as serious! Please speak out & reach out for help if you’re struggling, there’s so much help & support out there for you.
YOU are worthy. YOU are great. YOU are unique. There’s only one YOU so let it be the best you, you can be!😘💖
♡Please spread the love & share soph’s campaign or better still share your story, use #MakeupAndASmile & don’t forget to insert a picture of you wearing your beautiful smile!!♡
*If anyone ever needs someone to talk to. I’m always here. I like to think I’m a good listener!*

I’m going to be uploading every Tuesday & Thursday but today I wanted to do this bonus post to show support to a fellow blogger. Let’s help make the world a better place!
First off, I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long but life has been hectic. I’ve been working so much & with starting a new job it just got the better of me.
Now I’m catching up with myself I thought it’d be a good time to start blogging again, oh & the fact I’ve flipping missed it & all you lovely people!!
What have you all been up to this year, any news? I’d love to hear from you all. Oh, a MASSIVE thank you is in order for all you loyal readers staying with me! It really means a lot♡
So on Christmas day myself and the other half got engaged. I don’t think it has sunk in even now, but it’s definitely the best Christmas present I’ve ever received!! 😊
Aren’t we just a pair of cuties?
Since I didn’t get to say it; Happy New Year To You All. ♥
I hope this year has been kind to you! – comment below the best thing that happened to you over christmas & the new year! ☺
Something else exciting just happened to me, well within the last few days actually. I became a Younique Presenter. YAAAY. I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this journey with you!!! 😀
I know what you’re all probably thinking, ‘oh no, hear we go, more Younique SPAM!’ .. NO. I will be incorporating Younique products into my blog & promoting my business, which is what Younique is, but I won’t shove it down your throat (so to speak!!). YOU will have the choice to click onto my website, or even buy some products if you like how they look. I won’t ever make you feel like you HAVE to, because at the end of the day, YOU spend YOUR money on what YOU want!!
If you’d like to take a look at my Younique website to see what we have to offer, then feel free, click on the image below! 🙂

Anyway beauties, I think that’s all I have to tell you. I can’t wait to get blogging again, I’ve really missed you all!!!
P.S. I’ll have a makeup look up by the end of the week, purple smokey eye. I was meant to post this before I had my break from blogging but didn’t get the chance. So I’m going to share it with you this week, YAY!! 🙂
Lots of Love Natasha
