Life update 🖤

Hi lovelies,

I realised I haven’t actually shared anything about my course that I have been doing for the last few months! I am currently studying Makeup Artistry Level 3.

So far I have completed my henna, camouflage makeup & body art assessments! I’ll put picture of all below, let me know what you think 🙂 I’m definitely proud of what I have achieved so far!

Both of these designs I did as my assessment pieces for henna. I really love how it came out & through this course I have found something else I love doing, I am carrying on with henna & making it part of my beauty business! EXCITING! 😁

I created this dream catcher as I’ve always loved them as tattoos. I actually did this on my fiances foot, he really loved it! 🙂

My next assessment pieces were camouflage, we had to cover bruises, hyper & hypo pigmentation, scars & redness. I’m not going to put images as they aren’t that exciting but it was fun to learn this as a new skill, we also got a camouflage kit which will really help me for the future.

I have just finished my body art assessment pieces, the first we had to design a Mexican/sugar skull design. This was actually really fun! Here’s the design I came up with…

The second assessment piece was a fantasy body art, for this we could literally do anything as long as it included the face, neck and limb!

I chose to do Raven VS. Mystique, since I don’t really have much experience with body painting, well non at all! I was SUPER pleased with the finished result! (I had only practiced this one other time beforehand!)

HANDS UP XMEN FANS 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

I’m absolutely loving every second of this course, it’s been so fun to learn lots of new skills, meet new people & finally be doing something I actually REALLY LOVE!!

Next month I’m also doing a lash extensions course as well so that’s super exciting too!

Have you started any new hobbies or classes?? I’d love to hear about it!

The inside defintiely reflects the packaging & I think the colour selections are divine 😍 This palette attracted me as it’s totally different to anything I own, I don’t own many bles and reds so this was a winner. I absolutely adore all of these & I’ll definitely be doing loads more looks soon!

Becoming a mum; my journey, breastfeeding

My breastfeeding journey: 6 month update!❤

Hi lovelies,

Oh wow. Christmas is 4 days away🎄 CRAZY!!! Where has this year gone?🙊

I have been super busy & legit unable to sit down & write a post. Sad times. I was really getting back in to blogging. Anyway, since I’m able to sit down & write a post I thought I’d give you all our 6 month breastfeeding update! 🙂 My little man reached 6 months old 06.12.18 – where did those 6 months even go?😱

Not a lot has changed really. I’m still breastfeeding but we have introduced solids. We started introducing some solids just over 5 months! To be honest I did a small amount of research but all babies are different so just do what you feel is best, I just looked for advice on suitable foods for his age. Not only did we start solids but Rylie also got his first TWO TEETH. So amazing. We mainly started with veg, pureed then as he got the taste made them in to sticks so he could feed himself – this is baby led weaning! 🙂

Rylie is now 28 weeks. I do like to keep some sort of a routine with his food. For example, he usually had porridge or more recently scrambled egg. He then has whatever veg or suitable food we are having at dinner. I tend not to give him a lot of food later in the afternoon/evening as I don’t want to upset his stomach & want it all to be digested before bed. Even though Rylie has food during the day he has plenty of milk after any food & between food!

On an evening we have started to give him a bottle, to make sure he is having plenty before bed as he hasn’t been sleeping well. He still wakes every couple of hours in the night.. usually no longer than 3/4 hours! This hasn’t made much of a difference as he still wants milk frequently in the night.

If anyone has any tips on weaning I’d love to hear them!

Yaaay!! It’s Halloween. What has everyone got planned for today?🙂

Who’s going to parties? Or trick or treating?🙂

1. Favourite horror or Halloween-themed song?

Monster mash. Always a good song at a kids party! Haha. Can you tell I don’t go to adult parties?

2. Have you ever played with a Ouji board?

No. Wouldn’t. Believe they bring negative spirits.

Yes.

4. If you were dared to spend the night in a “Haunted House” would you do it?

Yes. If I wasn’t alone!

5. Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?

Have done before. They don’t really scare me

Trick or treating. Taking Rylie & his brother & sister this year, love getting them dressed up. So much fun!

7. Do you ever have to watch something happy after watching a horror movie so you can go to sleep?

Yes. Can never go straight to sleep after a horror!

8. Watching scary movies, are you the person yelling at characters, the person with their eyes covered the whole time or the person who falls asleep?

Yelling at the screen… they always go back or put themselves in danger. I know it’s the film, but…

9. Do you get scared easily?

I don’t think I do.

10. If could only wear one Halloween costume for the rest of your life, what would you be?

I was Mrs Scissorhands the other year & loved it. I thought I looked awesome

11. Are you the one who gets scared or the one who does the scaring?

Does the scaring

12. In a zombie apocalypse what would be your weapon of choice?

Machine gun with unlimited bullets
