Fashion Fads & Raising The Brow

I’m not sure whether fashion has changed since the new year came in or whether people have become wise to the recent eyebrow craze. Either way, I am relieved that people seem to have refrained from removing their brows and replacing their arches with thick, dark lines which resembled caterpillars creeping along their faces.

I find it hard enough to read people’s expressions without having to second guess whether they are surprised to see me or if it’s excessive brow-liner. I am no makeup master but I chose to steer well-clear of eyebrow pencils many moons ago.

I suffer from too much hair rather than too little, I therefore stick to waxing, shaping and hoping for the best when it comes to my brows.…

#LittleLoves – January 2019

I made a promise to myself to partake in some new linkies this year and whilst #LittleLoves isn’t entirely a new linky, it has certainly changed since I last wrote a post for this series. Firstly, the linky was originally scheduled each week, whereas now it is published on a monthly basis (upon the final Friday of each month). Secondly, the linky is now based on an entirely new blog as it has been handed from Morgana over to ‘Mummy Hearts You‘.

I’ve really rather missed the #LittleLoves linky and am therefore really looking forward to having it back in my life for 2019.…

#LivingArrows – Make It Count 3/52 (2019)

Looking at all my friends photos online, I feel kind of bad that most of my shots tend to get snapped indoors at present. Don’t get me wrong, my kids and I are outside regularly whilst at play. However, it has been so cold recently that we’ve not been outside for too long before heading back indoors to thaw out. Apologies therefore if my pictures come across as bland and boring.

As part of E’s extra curricular activities, we have spent time playing a few maths games together – one of which she was extremely excited about playing and has requested endless times since.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Pooch Perils

If I should ever wonder where either of my children may be, I will usually find them wherever the dog happens to reside. The pooch adores the pair of them and would follow them to the moon and back if she could.

Sitting on the sofa is no longer an individual activity, Maisy will insist upon sitting either between or on people, she is either lacking the intelligence to understand the concept of personal space or simply cannot cope without being close to us.

The kids adore the dog, I on the other hand am not quite as impressed today. Our beautiful basset decided to jump at the table, knocking my coffee all over the floor.…
