I don’t work on Fridays at the moment so every weekend is like a little long weekend for me. I try to have a good mix of going out and doing things, as well as time at home to just relax to make the most of my weekends but still feel rested on Monday mornings….

Well this is a bit of an overdue post!! If you missed it, my little Gracie girl turned 1 last month. It’s still weird for me to say that she is 1 to be honest! But it’s been a while since I have given you a Grace update so I thought I’d check in and let you know what she’s doing at 1 (still weird to say!). (And just a warning to brace yourself for some serious baby spam!)
She is still a huge bundle of personality and fun. In fact, I think her cheekiness has only amplified since she started moving around! She can’t crawl (and it honestly seems like she has no plans to do so) but she is an awesome bum-shuffler. Anyone at Problogger would have seen her little shuffle in action and it is just the most adorable thing ever. She likes to be sitting up and have her hands free for mischief making at all times it seems.
It’s taken me a while to pull this post together because I attempted to write this on one of my days off from work supervising her mischief from the couch. I had to keep stopping to put my laptop down and retrieve her from the kitchen, the front door, our bedroom, the dining room… Basically she wants to be everywhere and into everything. So it kind of was abandoned until I had some time during one of her naps to write it! …
I thought today I would show you the products I use for my ‘everyday makeup’, because I do my makeup most days especially now that I’m back at work. I definitely do have many makeup free days (especially on weekends) but I actually really love doing my makeup. It’s fun and I just love how ‘done’ it makes me look.
As much as I love experimenting with my makeup and trying new products, I often come back to this tried and true makeup routine which is quick and easy. It’s perfect for most situations because it’s quite neutral, super quick to apply, requires basically no thought and still looks professional and polished enough for me to wear to work. …
It’s time to check in for my monthly favourites! If you haven’t seen my other favourites posts, this is a monthly post series where I share my ‘favourites’ for the month – products, food, clothes, books and anything else I’m loving and couldn’t get enough of in the last month.
September just flew by with things ramping up at work, Grace turning 1 (I promise a post is coming soon!) and heading to Problogger. This year is just going by so fast, it’s hard to believe it will be Christmas in less than 3 months! (I can hear all the whispers to shhh about Christmas from here!!)
This month I’ve got some beauty products I’ve been using constantly, the striped top of my dreams, the book I’m fascinated with and the show we’re absolutely obsessed with right now.
