LIFE UPDATES AND SPRING FAVES

Long time no speak you beautiful bunch so prepare for a chatty post and a little life update!
Once again I have just fallen off the blogging bandwagon and I just couldn't get back on. I have been feeling completely uninspired and even though I was desperate to blog I just didn't want to fill my blog with meaningless crap.



When I say I have been feeling uninspired I mean I have been feeling extremely pregnant hence no time to read blogs or brainstorm ideas and being unable to stay awake past 7pm means that I have struggled to join in twitter chats too. I will be writing a pregnancy update this week, so I won't dive in too much on that, for all of you that are interested in my pregnancy progress check back in on Friday. 

As most of you know I work three days a week in sales and marketing which I love so much but having sole responsibility for the whole department during the first trimester of my pregnancy was proving quite intense and my anxiety at work was spilling over like crazy. So when the lovely lady who was sales manager before her maternity leave returned two weeks ago, I could've thrown a party at how excited I was to see her and be able to share the load with her. As a result of this I have decided to spread my week a little better in a bid to fit in blogging, being pregnant and being around for Harper's school holidays and generally spend more time with her. I now work a Saturday shift instead of a midweek shift and it already feels SO good that I am now home for 3 days straight with my little princess and being able to sit here and work on my blog that I so desperately miss. 


Me and Justin have been together four years as of yesterday and it feels like a really short time considering we're onto our second child. I have known Justin since I was 16 years old and back then neither of us would've ever believed that we would end up being together let alone engaged with a daughter and another baby on the way. I just feel so lucky to have found my soulmate and my ultimate best friend who loves me for me, at just 24 years old. We haven't celebrated at all yet but we're going away for a little family break on the 13th of June so we're saving every penny like crazy to give Harper the best little break ever, we'll go for dinner and we'll celebrate when we're away with our greatest achievement together - our little girl. 



That's a little life update for you, there's so much more to tell but like I said my pregnancy update will be up on Friday and will include everything I have missed and more. I haven't uploaded my scan pictures to social media but I will be adding them to my blog post on Friday, so if you're interested make sure you're following me over on Bloglovin or on Twitter to see when the post goes live! Today's post is a Spring favourites post as I never do these and feel like I need to add in everything I have been loving in March, April and May, so prepare for a long post if you haven't already clicked away yet. 



ELIZABETH ARDEN 8 HOUR CREAM BALM.




I have been suffering with extreme sickness, dehydration, a bad cold and wearing lots of matte lipsticks, all of these things don't exactly do wonders for your lips. My lips are the one thing on my body that I think are almost perfect and because of this I am extremely protective of them. I have known for a long time that people swear by 8 hour cream for their lips and I decide to give in to the hype. I'm so glad I did, this balm is magical, and my lips have never been so smooth despite the traumas they have suffered the last few months. This balm doesn't just work for lips, it has dried out and cleared up spots, softened the skin on my feet and so much more. It's expensive for it's size but so worth it, I am currently recommending it to EVERYONE. 


MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONTOUR TRIO 



Ever since I bought this contour trio around 4 months ago I have used it every single day. It cost me £4 and as experienced readers will know, I don't do cheap when it comes to makeup. I wasn't holding much hope for this particular product if I am completely honest, but I was wrong, so wrong. This contour trio smashes my sisters ABH contour kit, no competition. I have never been complimented so much on my contour and highlight until I started using this. I recommend it to anyone who asks me for contour tips and I have stocked up on this product so that I never run out. So pigmented and the trio of colours are so well put together it's ridiculous not to purchase at just £4. 



GARNIER MICELLAR WATER



I continuously rave about this product and here I am again, as I have rediscovered micellar water this past month. I got really lazy over the winter months and hated spending time taking all my makeup off thoroughly so I committed the ultimate beauty skin and used baby wipes/make up wipes. Not using micellar water over the winter period really reflected and showed me the difference in my skin. I also can never lift my mascara with wipes and it left my eyelashes in a right state. So now I am back to micellar water and really noticing the improved difference. 


V BY VERY GHILLIE SANDALS



I don't know why, but I am so picky when it comes to sandals. I don't like a lot of foot flesh showing (LOL) so the super summer trend of Ghillie sandals is my favourite right now. I really love Very and they always have the odd must have piece that I fall in love with instantly and these sandals were no exception. If you're as in love as I am you can buy these beauts right HERE for just £20.


MEGHAN TRAINOR - THANK YOU

This album is AMAZING! I love Meghan Trainor so much already, so when her new album dropped onto Spotify I was like oh heeeeey bbz. I really loved her first album title so I was so excited for this album and it really is so very good. It's extremely feel good and makes me want to dance all the way to work when I listen to it. My favourite songs on the album are I Love Me, Better and Kindly Calm Me Down. 



KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS SERIES 12

Couldn't end this post without a basic bitch selection could I? 
I have been spending a lot of time in bed ill during nausea and sickness days that I have been frequently experiencing since I became pregnant so obviously I have been watching lots of television. By lots of television I mean lots of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and as a forever fan who has seen every single episode, in fact every single anything that includes the Kardashians, I have to say I am loving the new series more than any other. 
The Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian situation and return of Lamar has seen me shouting at the screen and bawling my eyes out too. Kourtney is quickly becoming my favourite Kardashian, she's magical and is looking unreal. So no, I can't stop watching and I am HOOKED to this series!



I hope you have enjoyed this life update/spring favourites post, sorry if it's been a bit of a ramble but I just wanted to update you on everything that has been happening the last few weeks. Remember to come back on Friday for pregnancy updates and make sure you're following my blog or me on social media for more new posts coming soon!
