I have some very exciting news! I’m a finalist in the prestigious Brilliance in Blogging Awards in the Fashion & Beauty category. I’m absolutely delighted as Britmums is the UK’s largest and most influential network of Lifestyle bloggers and Social influencers so being a finalist is totally amazing.
In a world dominated by twenty something and thirty something bloggers I feel very proud that me, a mum of two in my late forties, has made it to the finalist list, especially in something I love so much as fashion and beauty.
Last year I wrote a post about my loft conversion plans – you can read it here – and finally our building work will start in the next couple of weeks. I’m equally excited and daunted. Excited because I love the idea of all the planning and designing the room and en-suite, and daunted because I hate the idea of living surrounded by mess and dust.
I discovered the curly girl method about a year ago and I haven’t looked back. After many years of struggling with frizz and trying to work out how to look after my hair I’m finally understanding what products are more suitable for me. My hair is still not perfect by any means, but it’s getting there.
I explained in my first post last year the principles behind the curly girl method: using sulphate- and silicon- free products. If you follow the method strictly you will not be using shampoo at all, just conditioner. But I still like to use shampoo from time to time, I guess it’s force of habit.
Following the curly girl method can probably feel overwhelming to start with, but it’s actually quite straight forward and easy to follow. I wanted to share with you the 5 main things I’ve learnt this first year following it:
As you read these lines I’ve probably be sunning myself in Spain. I always intend to be super organised and pack weeks before going on holiday, but the reality is very different. As a working mum I never seem to have much time and to be fair packing is something I end up leaving to the last minute every single time.
There are certain things though that I always make into my suitcase – they are my essentials for a summer holiday.
I love wearing dresses in the summer. Not only they are practical -on those 2 days of hot weather we have- but they also look very stylish. White seems to be the colour of this season, and who doesn’t love a little white dress? I’m always a bit worried about wearing white for many reasons, the main one being having young kids that like to clean their hands on me, and let’s face it, I’m a bit of a messy eater myself. However white looks great in the summer or on holiday with a bit of a tan.
