Mature skin make up - Bare minerals

It's not often I post make up videos despite being trained as a make up artist.

However, with a lack of mature skin advice out there, I have created a very quick video giving you my opinions of a couple of things!  See what you think.  I would love you to pop over and give me a thumbs up!

Much Love

Life! Stop for a minute I want to get off!

Have you ever had those days when you are driving along and your mind races just a bit too much?

Recently, I decided after hearing another piece of sad news on the radio that I needed to take more time for fun.  More time for laughs and relaxation.
More time for friends.
Real people who will pull out all the stops for you no matter what.

A lightbulb appeared above my head and I thought, you know what, I'm going to throw a party!!!

I used to have regular house parties but life got in the way and things have been so hard.  I continued to drive along that day, unable to stop the thoughts of fun, music, cake and jolly times.  It made me happy.  I wanted to stop thinking about work just for a moment.  You see, I get very passionate about my work and throw myself in to the deep end.  That's just me, just how I roll.  Yet it can manifest itself into ways that hurt your physical self.

So I threw a party for Scott as he turned 45.  So many amazing friends arrived,  we danced to the sounds of The Rat Pack and ate gluten free chocolate cakes! Of course there were party poppers for the children to enjoy making piles of streamers out of.

Fun!  We had fun!

Laughter,  we had laughter.  It was amazing.

The meaning of life is JOY.  I needed to remind myself.

Much love

Meeting Tyler Oakley and Stephen H Vlog

Good morning everyone!

How's life treating you all?  How was your halloween?  Gosh, I feel like there is so much to catch up on between you and I.  Honestly,  things have been manic here as always and as you know by now, checking in with my blog is just the best - I love it.  My place of retreat and love. <3

My theory about firework night is this: in Kent, we seem to get a turn in the weather right after the 5th of November and typically when we see our first frost.  I'm hoping it holds out for a few more days.  I've yet another exciting weekend coming up and you don't want to miss this one! I will of course be vlogging it but also taking some photos to share with you.  If you haven't already,  sign up on the right hand side of the page to get my blogs sent straight to your inbox.  It's a great way to keep up with all your favourite blogs.

Meanwhile, I am procrastinating - I really must get back to some Uni work! I'm getting behind on projects which is super crazy.  So early in the year too! This is going to be quite a ride.

Much love

Louise xoxo
