As I was having a bit of a sort out the other week, I came across my scrapbook, that I’m going to admit has been neglected for some time. I had planned to fill it a while back but things got in the way and that didn’t really come off. I decided last week that I WAS going to get back into scrapbooking and set it as a mission to carry on doing so.
It’s reminded me how much of a lovely past time it is to sit and stick printed memories that you can look back on whenever and in years to come. It does scare me that half of our lives (photo wise) are on our phones and if anything happened, they could all be gone. (well mine would anyway, I really should back it up shouldn’t I.) Anyhoo, I downloaded LALALAB. which seems to be the app that most scrapbookers use which is where the process starts. I’m not sure anyone should be taking advice from someone who just lays the prints out and hopes for the best but I suppose with scrapbooking, there really isn’t a right or wrong way to go about it, although I am planning on adding a few more bits to each page. You can really make it your own and get creative which I love, or in my case try and be creative. I thought I would share the easiest and cheapest way I have started to fill my scrapbook again for fellow scrapbookers or for anyone wanting to start one!
My family, our dog and I travelled from the North East to sunny Southern Scotland for the week last week, or should I say more specifically Loch Lomond in the village of Balmaha. It was my first time visiting this neck of the woods in Scotland and I’m already missing the beautiful views and stone cottages. I’m not missing my aching feet though I must say, from exploring and going on what were described as ‘short hill walks’ which turned out to be the very opposite! Lesson learned: always go prepared. There was however coffee shops involved too of course and a few dips in the hot tub which was such a treat. Lucky gal! Anyhow, I thought I would share a few snaps I took whilst I was there and a bit about our trip, including dog friendly eateries (which actually proved quite a struggle) that also had good menus for fussy vegetarians, being my older sister for when we didn’t cook at the lodge and the places we visited encase any of you are thinking of visiting!…
My Daytime Summer Makeup Look
When it comes to Summer makeup, this year I am ALL about that glow and keeping it simple. With the current heat wave we’ve been having recently in Britain especially, I’ve been tending to opt for a minimal, lightweight look against the heat (and apparently storms!?) and a whole load of setting spray. In today’s post, I thought I would share what has been my go-to makeup routine lately and a full low down of the products I am using to achieve it…! View Post
Well, it has been HATT today hasn’t it. I’m sat writing this with my windows open praying the world of bugs and their wives don’t come on in, plus half my packaging for Centre Parcs is left to do but this blog post comes first hunnies! This continuous sunny weather is actually quite appropriate seen as today I’m sharing the tanning product that has literally changed my world of tanning (thanks to Ellie for the recommendation!) and my current tanning routine.
I’m sure us girlies can relate when I say tanning is one hell of an effort! From shaving, exfoliating, to moisturising and actually going through the stress of applying the tan. I usually end up realising after tanning when I step out into the light, it’s a hot mess. I’m talking patches I’ve missed, streaks, you name it, I’ve been through the disasters. Sooo this brings me onto the holy tan that I’ve been using over the past few weeks which has upped my tanning game and ultimately has made tanning a whole lot easier and quicker! Seen as we’re now in Summer and my legs anyway are beginning to come out of hiding, I thought what better opportunity to share!
Lately, I have been seeing a LOTTA hype around Makeup Revolution’s new makeup brand, Revolution Pro. I’m probably, like always, a tad late on the band wagon butt after reading and watching other reviews in the beauty community on their new products, I thought I would place a cheeky order and see for myself what it was all about!
