Jamie Genevieve Makeup Masterclass

A few months ago a friend and I got the chance to go to a makeup class by the gorgeous Jamie Genevieve.  I know it was a few months ago but I just realised I hadn't actually written about it!   My bad, life has been hectic lately.  Sorry for the crappy quality photos, my phone is on its last legs!

Olaplex Number 3 Review

As you all know, I love pampering my hair and trying to keep it in the best possible condition.  I highlight my hair and use heat (drying, occasional straightening) so I really need to keep on top of my hair routine.  My hair is naturally long, down past my bra, but this wasn't always the case.   My hair was once badly damaged and through trial and error I've managed to bring it back to life.

Adopting Amelia

Anyone who reads this blog or follows my Twitter will know how much I love animals and how painful it was to lose my gorgeous little hamster Napoli (read all about her here).  When Napoli passed away my flat felt so empty, not to mention how empty my heart was.  Animals make me happy, its as simple as that.  I feel lonely without animals to look after so after feeling this way for a few months I started thinking about what to do next.

I'm off to America!

Today I wanted to talk to you about my upcoming holiday to the states. Kasim and I have wanted to visit America for ages now and with my friend Jessica getting married in June, we couldn't think of a better excuse!

As I said earlier, we are going in June this year and can't wait! We've looked at what we want to do and spoke to Jess so we have a rough plan but I thought I'd ask for some advise on here too! If we have missed anything cool or must-see on the list please let me know!

My Mortons Neuroma Foot Surgery

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to talk to you about the surgery I had done recently.  If you follow me on twitter you'll know a little bit about it but I wanted to go in depth about what I got done and how I'm doing.

I got my surgery done in Glasgow and it involved removing a lump, known as mortons neuroma surgery.

This is a bumper post guys, in the hope that it'll help anyone going through this experience, so buckle up!

So lets go back to the very beginning!  I have had foot pain for years now, roughly 15 years in total.  I have been to all of the doctors in my practice many times over and they have never once gave me any help.  I was fobbed off at high school with 'growing pains'.  At uni and college I was told it could be wearing high heels (I never wore high heels to uni or college) or maybe the weight of my bag or maybe shoes that were too flat or too high or this or that.  I never got any useful answers and I felt like I was never listened to.  Fast forward 15 years and I have just learned to live with it.  My doctors never so much as gave me an xray or sent me to a specialist (thanks NHS) and I thought I'd have un-explainable pain for life.  Remember - recurring foot pain is not normal, it means something is wrong.

What I got for my birthday and Christmas

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! I had a quiet one this year, exactly what I was needing! 2016 was a rough one so I took it easy this festive time and spent the majority of it in my pjs haha!

As always with these posts, if you don't like them then don't read them! I love these posts though, I do my own every year & I read everyone elses every year.

Note: my birthday is 22nd December so this is (as usual) a combo post of my birthday and Christmas gifts.
