How I wash my Makeup Brushes

Surprisingly, this is one of the questions I get asked quite a lot. I’d have given you a different answer depending on when you asked. I decided to finally tackle this blog post because I have been using these products weekly and I don’t see myself changing it anytime soon. For most of you, like myself, cleaning makeup brushes is a laborious and tedious task. As much as I would rather be spending time with my kids or catching up on series, I know it needs to be done. I store my brushes upright in a brush holder and because it has no…

Life Update – Baby School & Boot Camp

These last few weeks have been a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs, highs and lows, but I’m really glad because life seems to be getting back on track and everything is somehow working out.

I do feel I owe my readers an explanation just because I also wonder where my favourite…

Blogging break…

Woah can these days fly any faster. There are just not enough hours in a day to work, sleep and play as much as I would like to. I am taking a blogging break for the next two weeks as I am in the process of moving my web hosts as well as having one of my friends help re-design my website. She’s currently studying and now using my blog as a practice page and who am I to say no to some professional help, for free I might add. I am also going to be doing a short makeup…
