Doing it in the dark: three quarters of women say they apply makeup in poor lighting
Are you one of the many women doing your makeup in the dark? On the rare occasion I get the time to wear makeup I’m definitely guilty of this, up earlier than the rest of the house and struggling to make myself look presentable in the dark. Even when it’s daylight I don’t have anywhere that bright to do my makeup properly.
I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?
I have struggled with depression, anxiety and stress for the vast majority of my adult life. It comes and goes in waves, for the most part it is entirely manageable but I’m always looking for ways keep on top of things. So when I heard about Mikei Red Reishi I was eager to try it.

Having been there and done that, I’m fully aware that when you are in the throws of it no one can actually tell you anything that will help, but maybe, just maybe, one of these little coping techniques might help someone else.
Unilever and BritMums recently set a very interesting challenge. The #BrightFuture initiative is all about uniting communities and encouraging small changes in everyday life that will in turn have a positive impact on the world.
So as you all know it’s my dream to Stay At Home, and I’ve been exploring ways to do that. I’ve even managed it for the last year but due to a change in circumstances I’ve actually had to find myself a little supermarket job.
Whether that ends up being long-term or not who knows. But I’ve not given up on my Stay At Home dream. I love being my own boss, even if it’s stressful and hasn’t gone to plan. The flexibility it offers, not only around my son but my life is immeasurable. The pleasure and satisfaction it gives me is also amazing.
So I’m just going to say it, because it isn’t something to be embarrassed about. Around 62% of women will suffer some form of incontinence during pregnancy and around 50% will continue to have issues after childbirth. So why don’t we talk about it? The guys at Hartmann are trying to help. Continue reading A Very Common Problem→
