"Growth is uncomfortable because you've never been this version of yourself.
So give yourself a little grace and breathe through it" -Kristen Lohr. 👉🙌👈
Lately it seems I happen across just the right message I need to hear at just the right time.👂
It's kind of creepy actually😄 Almost like someone is listening to my thoughts 🤔💭
Just when I start to question myself and think to myself "who am I to teach others what I'm learning about makeup and why would they want to watch what I'm doing and how I'm doing it?"...BAM!
The smack upside the head I need appears and gives me the motivation to keep on tredging forward! *
I know not everyone is going to care about how a 49 year old woman with two grown children, an awesome husband and two adorable puppies has learned how to highlight & contour LOL! 😂😆🙊
Ya know what?! That's OK...I'm not for them but someone else may just see themselves in me and if I can help them overcome some challenges, that's why I'll tredge ahead! *
Who's with me? Raise your ✋!
Oh the horror! Embarrassing post alert. Facebook just shared a dreadful photo of me (on the left) which was taken 6 years ago when I was 50. It has really made me think. The photo on the right was taken 3 weeks ago. 6 years ago I had just starting my personal styling business Styling Matters and was learning all about skin tone, clarity and depth of colours, the colours and tones that suit people and why. Hair colour and style, makeup, skin care, all the things we do to try and stay looking as good as we can for our age. I’ve learnt masses over the years, and I’m still learning every day. I’ve helped hundreds of clients to look their best in this time, but I hadn’t realised how much I’d helped myself too. Look how dull my skin looked on the left because my hair was the wrong colour and so was my clothing, and my skincare routine was non existent. I now know that clear and bright colours are best for my clothes and makeup. And that muted colours really don’t work on me. Having had my teeth straightened and whitened has really helped too. I’m so chuffed with this before and after, it’s quite cheered me up. I guess the message is to reboot your image at least every decade. It’ll take years off you! 😊
💛 Hands up if you love #ceramidin by @drjart 🙋♀️ 💛 I had to post this moisturizer for my #texturetuesday shot, how I love its feel on my skin. 💛 This is one of the most amazing creams that I started using a few weeks back. I have extremely dry skin and using ceramidin in the mornings has been wonderful. 💛 The texture of this cream is so beautiful and it glides so well on the skin. 💛 I have noticed that whenever I apply this cream in the mornings, I never have a stretched skin feeling the whole day. 💛 Have you tried Ceramidin? What's your experience like?

A little riddle for #texturetuesday .
This is an oil. It is one of the oilier oils that I own. Basically a blend of oils. An oil blend. I talked about it in yesterdays video, if you need a clue. What might it be?

Im heutigen #textureshot siehst Du ein Öl. Und zwar ein eher öliges Öl. Sozusagen ein Oil Blend. Welches könnte es sein?
Falls Du einen Tip brauchst - ich habe im Video gestern darüber gesprochen.
Hey there it’s #maskmonday ! I tried a new sheet mask today called Collagen Lifting Intensive Mask by @purenskin_polska . I received this in my @myfacetory subscription!
Let’s get down to the review! 🍮 this is a mask that promises plumping and firming. Also claims to be great for morning applications!
🍮 It contains hydrolyzed collagen for plumping and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This also contains Camellia Sinensis(green tea) extract an antioxidant rich ingredient that helps with anti-aging. Think firm and elastic skin. 🍮 This mask was super thin and fit perfectly and was worn for 15 min. I experienced no fragrance and a calming cool feel. The mask stayed moist the entire time. There was plenty of serum to rub in post mask
🍮the mask left my skin feeling cool, looking glowy and feeling a little plumped and firm! 🍮The serum was tacky after the first few minutes of masking so I need to wait to apply makeup over the top. However when I applied my moisturizer over the top there was no pilling so that was good! It was a pretty good mask.
Only the purest ingredients for your skin.🌱 Bio face lifting mask is the trick mature ladies don't speak about when you ask them how do they still look like in theyr twenties. ♀️💆🏻♀️ If you want to be forever young you don't need miracles, you need be committed to natural skin care and not to chemicals and expensive treatments that have effects after bunch of visits to your therapist. 💸

Market days can be a complete blur sometimes, with the business of trading, music, smells, customers and so much going on, but I should never be so busy to say a big THANK YOU to my customers. Emma, who’s a big fan of📚 Wide Sargasso Sea, Jenny the marine biologist keeping our oceans 🌊healthy, Hayley from the 305 🏝, Sule who’s struggling with his thick hair (I wish), Josie + bath bomb making boyfriend (yay) and so many more of you who stopped by the stall. You make all the hectic worthwhile!! A final thank you to @urbanmakers_uk for running a super classy event as per usual.
#AD You'll remember me posting recently about the two month trial that I'm doing with @sevenseasperfect7 which has been scientifically proven to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles in sixty days. (See my post on 8 March). Well I am half way through now and thought I would share my thoughts with you. I'm finding it really easy to take the three capsules every day and I'm feeling really well. I've been told I'm looking really well too! I've taken a photograph of me just before I started the trial (on the left with a bit of post holiday tan), and then again half way through the trial a month later (on the right). This isn't taken in a controlled environment of course, but each time I have sat in front of the same window, at the same time of day, with the same minimal makeup, and no filters or apps, so I am able to give you the truest images I can. I have to say that I am really pleased with the results already. If you look at my crows feet, they definitely aren't as deep as they were at the start of the trial. I'm excited to see what the next month will bring and will share another photo with you then. That's if I can get over the thought of you lovely lot peering at my crow's feet that is! #perfect7renewal#paidpartnership

In love with the Kose Grace One Whitening Perfect Cream at the moment. ❤ .
The cream is a 3 in 1 cream (serum, essence and emulsion) designed for over 50s skin. It contains vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, collagen and various red rich ingredients to help fight signs of aging (fine lines, dark spots, etc.) What I like most about it is the gel texture. Most gel moisturiser that I've tried are hydrating but not necessarily moisturising. This cream has a rich gel texture that hydrates and moisturises. Who cares if a cream is not designed for your age as long as it works great!👵😉 .
