Early Morning Mighties

Hello happy readers!

Welcome back.

Every time I blog I always swear to make more time and blog more often, and I pretty much never do. I'm just so busy! However, I've been meaning to do this post for a while and I've finally found the time whilst the potatoes are baking in the oven and the husband is watching the footy so here goes.

Now that I'm working full time and doing shifts, I often find that a full skincare and make-up regime in the morning is almost impossible to achieve. I get up at 6:20 to wake up, have coffee and get myself and the dog ready to leave the house at 7:40 to start work at 8:30, which gives me around 25 minutes (normally) to get clean, do my face and get dressed.

When it comes to skincare I never used to be one for cutting corners or for multi-purpose products aimed at saving both time and money. Now that I'm pushed for time (and energy...) in the morning, but still want to look my best, I've found a few holy-grail-esque products that work absolute wonders!

Hello February!

I can barely describe what a tumultuous time I've had since I last posted.

I started my new job back in September, and it's been an absolute roller-coaster from day one. I finally know how it feels to have a "proper" job. I work 8 and a half hours (at least...) a day, 5 days (at least) a week (with the occasional weekend shift thrown in for good measure) and still manage to look after myself, my husband, our home and our animals. Nick has gone back to Uni to do a full-time Master's degree which means that we've had to find someone to look after Sully dog on days when we're both out all day. We found a wonderful lady who lives just around the corner who loves him to pieces, but it's quite expensive, and a large chunk out of my weekly wage. I feel like an actual grown-up now that I'm working to pay for things that need paid for because I'm working... what a twisted, difficult world we live in!
