NEW FESTIVAL TREND CALLED “Glitter butts”

It seems like every year their is a new festival trend and this year is no different. The newest trend is called “Glitter butts” and it was started by an Artist called Mia Kennigton, Mia is an artist from The Gypsy Shrine who are based in U.K. They travel around the world offering different services from face painting to body art to hair braiding and now glitter butts.

This trend is spreading like wild fire as all over Instagram those brave enough are doing this trend. some people are wearing the glitter with out any bottoms and others are opting for hot pants or bikini bottoms so whatever works for you work it!.

HOW TO APPLY IT

So according to my research in order to get the glitter to stick you have to first cover your butt with styling gel and while the gel is still wet use a brush to press the glitter on ( the best glitter to use is the chunky one but you can still use any glitter you want) if you want to add more glam to your glitter butt you can also add gemstones using body adhesive.

And lastly, you don’t have to do this step but its recommended you fix your glitter with a setting spray and then you are ready to shine and wow the crowd.

And remember to use makeup wipes or and oil based makeup remover to take the glitter off.

So whatever way you chose to wear it,make sure you take pictures to remember this trend and have fun with it there is no right or wrong way to wear “Glitter butts”.

HOW TO ROCK EFFORDLESSLY AT BEING A MUM OF TWINS

They will cry at the same time or take turns lol

So I dont know if this is with all twins or just mine but my two LITERALLY take turns crying if not together. One will cry while the other is calm looking around enjoying the scenery lol once they are finished the other starts off too and before you know they are both crying or taking turns.

When they were smaller I would carry them both and soothe them but now they are abit bigger and heavier it can be difficult to do this but what I have found helps me is as long as they are feed and pamper is clean I put them on their bellies and they tend to calm down because they love being on their tummies and they sleep on them too.

They might want to feed at the same time

For this one i have heard some wake up different times but mine since they were born they have woken up the same time if not just minutes apart. I think because they feed at the same time they end up getting hungry at the same time and its a routine now for them to wake up at the same time but I Have quite a few ways of feeding them and the most popular one is the pillow method which i find the easiest but you have to find what works for you.

You might survive on snacks

In the early day before I mastered multitasking with twins (still learning) I survived on snickers and toffee lattes! (Home made obviously coz I for one dont have that money to buy the amount of lattes I was drinking).

So in the morning I would just take a latte with me for school runs by the time I got back I had to put them down for a nap which would take me a while as I had to soothe them and feed them again so by the time I was done with that I had to sort dinner before picking the kids from school and hubby from work so I really did not have time to make anything to eat and so snickers did the job.

This was not good at all but my advice is to make something the night before even a quick sandwich and pop it in the fridge that would be better than what i was chomping on lol and dont forget their is Mcdonalds drive-thru šŸ‘Œ I use that too so if all fails just go down good old Mcds.

You will learn to apply makeup in less than 10 minutes

I have always been a minimal makeup kinda of girl and I could do my makeup in about half and hour to 45 mins only because I would be dancing around, singing you know the usual things we girls do but now I dont have the luxury to do that šŸ˜© so my make up literally take’s me 10 mins top to do and just about a handful of products.

If you know how to do your makeup well you will be able to down the time it take you to do it but if you dont you just have to practice and as you get your routine in place so you will with your makeup time.

Make time for you!

This is very important, you have to make time for YOU! you really have to even though its 10 mins away from those beautiful babies it will keep you sain and give you and you mind a break. Its very easy to just go go go because there is so much to do and so little time but you cant run on 100 24/7 because soon or later you will crash.

Taking a walk outside by yourself will do u a whole lot of goodness, going gym if thats what you want to do, go out with friends for a coffee….. anything as long as its baby free is good.

Its hard especially with two babies because you sometimes can’t catch a break and because its so full on but use those family and friends they are all there for you, dont be afraid to ask for help or be too proud or ashamed thinking they will think you are weak anyone who thinks that is obviously never been around babies or children and definitely should not be around your babies.

And last but not least, your not alone

Always remember there are lots of support groups that are there to help you, talk to your midwife or health visitor if things are getting too much for you don’t suffer in silence because being a mum to one is hard so imagine having two it will be hard at first but you will get into your own routine and you will be a master at running the show in no time.

Also when I was pregnant I found this twins group on Facebook which helped me massively with how I was feeling because they were either going through it or been through it and upto now if i have an issue or question any time day or night someone is always there to replay to my message or post because majority of times we are up feeding the babies lol. Just go on Facebook and type twin mum groups and they will come up.

I hope this post helped someone and feel free to message me with any questions or if you just want to have a chat twin mums or singletons all welcome.

How did you feel you coped when you first had your baby or babies?

What tips and tricks did you use?

Did you have enough help?

“AND IF THE MUSIC IS GOOD, YOU DANCE”

So the music festival season has started, Coachella seems live and fun but I don’t think I will ever get a chance to go with prices starting at Ā£310 for a general admission ticket! that is an eye watering price. Then you have the Wireless Festival which is more affordable with prices starting at Ā£55 for a certain day and Glastonbury Leeds Festival which is also different prices for different day but prices can start from Ā£205 which include access all weekend as well as camping.

IMG_1821

I have never actually been to a music festival before ( i hope I will one day go) but this outfit to me screams fun and comfortable. the blouse is thin and airy so if its hot it will let air in and keep you cool as well as prevent you from getting sun burn ( I know the mum in me kicked in lol) but if its a bit cold and wet let most of the festivals in UK tend to be it can also give you a little bit of cover so you can stay a bit warm.

The skirt is a stretchy material which is great as there is a lot of food to eat at these festivals so you need some thing that will let your stomach expand and breath as you go through all that food. The band around the waist is also stretchy which makes it very comfortable to wear and move around.

IMG_1817

I am also wearing a bralet which has pink and white flowers on it which I though has a real festival vibe going on and its a fun little outfit to add to your festival outfit and its doing the picker boo look without exposing and showing too much . It has no wires what so ever in it but it provide the support needed and its really comfortable.

For shoes I would go for something really comfortable as I would be on my feet for a long time and you need something you can dance in all day and all night.

IMG_1831

The shoes am wearing are Next hogans which are so comfortable and airy to wear, the sole is chunky which gives you some height but it helps your feet so they are not hurting or too low on on the ground to cause uncomfortableness. The outside material is cloth but a thick cloth, they do not weight you down though after the festival you will have to wash them but hey that’s style for ya lol.

So what do you think of this outfit? would you wear it to a festival or nah?

“MAKEUP IS SELF- CONFIDENCE APPLIED DIRECTLY TO THE FACE”

(NOT SPONSORED)

Since I started wearing make up and taking care of my skin I have always been a minimal product usage kind of girl, I have never been the type to change my products or yoyo with different ones because the ones I used worked fine.

When I lived at home with my mum I always just used what she bought which was usually VaselineĀ lol. We use to use Vaseline for basically everything! from body to feet and of course on the lips. Since I got married I started testing out different beauty products because I wanted a change as I was grown and all lol and at one point I would have so many products which I would have used for only a couple times just sitting there collecting dust.

For the last few years I found the products that work for me and I have stuck to them and my skin has thanked me for that still working with minimal products.

IMG_1842

The one product I have religiously used continuously over many years now is the Garnier body intensive 7 days lotion in Shea butter. I have tried many body lotions trying to find one that worked for my body and they all would either make my skin dry like the dessert, oily or just look dead. But since I started using the Garnier lotion for very dry skin (though my body is not that dry) my skin is so soft and the softness lasts till the next day when I have a bath. It is also fast absorbing so you wont be there gettingĀ  a work out putting lotion on your body. Looking at the ingredients it contains Shea butter of course, water which is always great for your body, olive fruit oil, palm oil, mineral oil and many other ingredients but my point is having all these oils in one bottle has to make ones body soft and smooth.

For moisturing my face I use three products at the moment one is Nivea moisturising cream. Their main ingredients are Jojoba oil which is very moisturing and Vitamin E which helps with to protect cells ( I know I have gone all scientific lol). I use this cream at night before I go bed which helps keep my skin soft through out the night even in winter time when I wake up my skin still feels soft and looks dewy. The other product is B Restored day cream now I have only just started using this product not too long ago but let me tell you something, it is very mosturising and quite thick which I think is needed because weather seasons like winter and summer can make your skin drier than usual so you need something thick to add extra moisture. Lastly for my face I use Superdrug Optimum instant anti-wrinkle eye cream for under my eyes. I use it in the morning and evening and I have found that once I start rubbing it into my eye area I can see the lines reduce! which am not gonna lie I was skeptical if it would do anything ( am always skeptical with such things) but it done something so I will see if it will reduce the appearance of the lines more over time.

For washing my face I have been using Nip Fab exfoliate which has Glycolic and B. Revealed Glycolic cleansing peel. Both these products have Glycolic Acid in them which helps treat uneven skin,acne,oily skin etc. It basically does what it says on the tin, after using any of these products I can see and feel my skin is clean and no residue of dirt or makeup.

So as you see I really do not use a lot of products for my face or body but I don’t really think you need to use a lot of stuff on your skin, you just have to find what works for you and stick to it and your skin will thank you for it.

So what product do you swear by? let me know.

ACCESSORIES – JEWELLERY

(POST NOT SPONSORED IN ANY WAY)

Hey guys hope you are all well, the winter season has definitely kicked in and the hibernation has kicked in too lol (winter just sucks!). So recently I have been looking at items on the AliExpress app and I found quite a few things I wanted to buy but, you hear a lot of people saying that these kind of sites are scams and what you order is not what you get and you might not actually get the item you paid for. So I decided to do my own research and I came upon a post about how to find out if the sellers (on AliExpress) you want to buy from are Ā genuine and how to tell that the are legit.

The post talked about how to find certified paperwork to prove they are real, the ratings of customers, checking if the sellers website is real, checking pictures of the warehouse etc. The post was really helpfully, so I bit the bullet and decided to order some jewellery which wasn’t expensive just in case I got scammed.

Now if you have ever looked at websites like Aliexpress, you will see that their stuff looks so nice and cute you just want to get everything but you have to remember that their dress sizes are so different to the rest of the world ( hence why I chose to buy jewellery). But here are some of the items I bought which I think are just too cute!

These are flower earings, they had other colours but I chose these two. I have never really seen flower earings like these so I had to get them. I think they are quite unique.

So though I dont wear necklaces a lot i had to pick these up. The bottle and the bird and branch necklaces are just adorable! they are just different and I like that about them. They look like they are telling a story which is beautiful.

img_1714

This one is a necklace pendant. When I saw it on the site it Ā was on a necklace and when it came it was without one which I don’t mind. The pink colour makes it so cute and it stands out, it also has a silver stone for a leaf which adds glam to it.

img_1715

This is one of the cutest broaches I have seen in a while. The blue is just stunning, its so girly and so me. I don’t actually have any broaches because when I would see some they looked tacky and not my style but this one was right up my street.

img_1719

Ok guys lets take a moment for these………………… isn’t this the most adorable jewellery? I cant get over how cute they are. These are fox earing studs which came in lots of different colours but i chose this one. I really cant wait to wear these! ekk lol

img_1722

So all items I bought looked exactly as on the website which am pleased about and I think I will be buying more jewellery from this website because they really do have some unique jewellery items.
