Beautiful new blog design by Dreamality Designs

If you read my blog you may, already, have noticed that I have a brand new design over here on my lovely blog. 

I'd actually had my last design for, almost exactly, a year and I do find myself getting bored of things after a while so I felt really inspired by the idea of getting a new design. The lovely Bex over at Futures recommended Yaya at Dreamality Designs and I was instantly impressed by her prices and her professionalism (whilst staying really friendly and down to earth). 

As you may remember my blog was a little stark before so there's more colour and a little more to it, now, though without going over the top. I love the floral theme and I love that Yaya managed to get the exact dusky pink that I wanted, whilst adding in her own idea of the mint green - I love mint green but hadn't thought of using it on here, I am so so glad that she suggested it as it goes perfectly.

I love the header, the bold new social media icons, I love it all!

So, if you're on blogger and you want a re-design, definitely give her a shout - She did the work quickly, she kept me totally updated and is a lovely lady. 

I'd love to know some thoughts on a couple of things? Some people have said that the dusky pink links are a little pale and I can see what they mean but it does seem to depend on the angle that I'm viewing my screen on so I'd love to know what the consensus is on that one? Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated too! 

I know I've not been updating as much this year, the whole year seems to have slowed down and that's not been intentional - I've been struggling with my health, even more, and the year has just zoomed by. But I really am hoping to keep things moving a little better, I've had a few lovely beauty products to share with you all and I'm loving the extra book posts I've been able to write. So watch this space, here's to a better second half of the year!

'Big Little Lies' by Liane Moriarty - Another book review!

I was asked if I wanted to review one of Penguin's new books 'Big Little Lies' by Liane Moriarty and instantly I recognised the name of the author and was very pleased! I, actually, read one of Liane's earlier books 'The Husband's Secret' not that long ago and I really, really enjoyed it so I couldn't wait to read another of hers.

Makeup Revolution New Release - The 'Affirmation' 32 shade Eye shadow palette

It's Makeup Revolution time! I'd say, easily, Makeup Revolution post is always a highlight for me, I love to find out what's inside and when there's something stunning it just puts a smile on my face (hint, this one is stunning). 
Today the 'Affirmation' palette, which is the newest of the 32 shade Ultra Eyeshadow palettes, popped through the letter box. When I saw swatches of this, yesterday, I hoped I'd be lucky enough to get this one so I was very, very pleased when a palette shaped package arrived!

The Air Motion Pro hairbrush - Our review

This post isn't My review, alone, today because it's for a product that I've been using with Ethan. When we were offered an Air Motion Pro hairbrush to trial I instantly cut, in my head, to the images of Ethan shrieking every time I put a brush through those curly, messy locks of his - Instantly I said Yes Please!

Birchbox UK Unboxing - May 2015

You may've noticed that I haven't posted as many unboxings, recently. Firstly I've cut down on what I've been getting, quite considerably, and secondly the boxes I Have been getting haven't filled me with the desire to write about them, until the May Birchbox arrived! This has been a really redeeming box, for me, so I'm really pleased as I was feeling rather disenchanted. 
If this box re-lights the spark for you, too, and you decide to subscribe then don't forget to use my referral link and we'll both get £5 worth of points to spend in the Birchbox shop: https://www.birchbox.co.uk/invite/m6bv3
