2017

Hi!

I’ve not been about for a while, I know that last year I had intentions of blogging more and it didn’t happen .. I think I might have even said it the year before as well but life has always got in the way! 

2016 was a pretty shitty year for me in general. I started the year with Barry the Bloodclot in my leg, a potentially life threatening illness which fortunately has now cleared but wasn’t a fun time for anyone while he was with us. sadly towards the end of last year and at the start of this year, I lost some family members who were very dear to me. The past few months have been a dark time because frankly, I’m not someone that deals with death well. 

That combined with work issues and a business which spiralled out of my control for a while made for a pretty hectic year. 

The best thing to come out of 2016 was my wonderful relationship with my amazing Mark. I’m a very lucky girl and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us. 

Moving forward with the year ahead, I have lots of content ideas for my blog so I’m going to ressurect her from the ashes, blow off the dust and start sharing content again. 

 I am passionate about plus size fashion, Disney bounding and cosplay so I’m super excited to start sharing some of my latest finds, ideas on upcycling clothes into Disney fashion, how I outfit plan for trips, some of my fave custom made dress sellers and there may even be a sneaky little collaboration in the works! 

Let me know if you want to see more Disney inspired make up looks … I know I only shared a couple but I do have plenty of ideas for more if that’s something you might want to see? 

I will also have a big post on my Halloween soirĂ©e costume as becoming Ursula was a pretty spectacular achievement for me and I had the most incredible night. 

I also have some posts coming up on Disney DIYs, painting projects I’m working on, my ever growing Alice in Wonderland collection and lots more … 

So hopefully you’ll want to stick around and read some of them!

Lots of Love

Changing my face …

Training as a makeup artist was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. I loved college and reconnecting with my artistic nature took me to a really happy and positive place.

Face and body painting was my favourite part of my training and is probably the skill I use the most. Obviously my own face is the best canvas to use to practice on so I thought I’d do a little post to show you some of the designs I’ve done!

Here I made myself into the Cheshire Cat.

I think I’ve overloaded you enough with pictures of my face!

What’s your fave look?

Is there anything you’d like me to do?

Would you like a step by step tutorial of any looks?

Let me know!
