WORK MODE, MUMMY MODE & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

 

As a mum myself, I know how hard it can be to joggle work, family life and everything in between. Sometimes, you get back from work and then it’s time to bring Junior to football or Sarah to ballet or dancing. Does that sound familiar?

On today’s post, I bring you a quick styling on how to go from work mode to mummy mode without changing clothes. Let’s do this. How are you by the way?

I SPENT A DAY WITH YOUTUBE AT GOOGLE HQ, DUBLIN

 

 

At every chance I get, I do my best to inspire everyone to be who they want to be. On today’s post, I have been given another opportunity to share and remind you that it is okay to be who you want to be irrespective of your age, sex, circumstance, background,economic situation or where you live. Your present situation or status doesn’t define you, what you do in that situation is all the matters.

Last Saturday, 17/09, I had the opportunity to go and spend the day with YouTube at the Google Headquarters in Dublin. I opened my email about 2 weeks ago and I saw this invitation. I was humbled, honoured and happy because I was preparing for such a time as this and that is why I do my best to give my YouTube Channel everything.

Since I started doing Youtube, I do my best to upload at least one video a week. A lot of times I make 2 videos doing what I love; beauty, fashion and motivation / inspiration.

ALEXA CHUNG FOR M&S AND MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

I have followed Alexa Chung’s career for a while. She is one of those underdog in the fashion world. Alexa is a British Fashion Model, Television presenter and Contributing Editor at British Vogue. When I heard of her collaboration with M&S (Marks & Spencer), I was curious to see what she designed in collaboration with them.

As for M&S, a lot of people think of them as a not so fashion forward brand when it comes to clothing. However, this days, they are “uping” their game and this is why they now do collaboration with modern women of influence to bring modern and on trend vibe to their collection. By the way, if you look well in M&S, you will find great and fashionable items there. And they do great lingerie too.

 

HOW TO APPLY BLUSH CORRECTLY

Make up for me isn’t great without a good blush. Blush adds a nice radiance to the cheek and a lovely accentuation to the face. Not only those two, a nice flush of blush on the face gives a healthy and youthful looking face.

Wearing blush is one thing and wearing it really well is another. So as not to look like a clown, it is super important to wear the appropriate amount of blush and to blend it well. How do you wear your blush? I will show you in a minute…..

 

How To Transition to Fall Without Buying Anything New ::: Bow Detail Shirt & Midi Skirt

 

I looked out a few days ago and it was raining and in my head I started thinking once the word “FALL” comes up in weather, it starts to rain. I may be wrong but I have also noticed that once the children go back to school, it rains everyday. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels that way because I sent a message to a friend of mine who also said she was thinking the same thing when she got my message. Two rights can’t be wrong right? 🙂

Well in Ireland, sometimes we experience all 4 seasons in a day; Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter. Do you think once it’s fall / Autumn, it rains everyday too? What is the weather like where you are? I am just curious to know so please share with me.

HOW TO ACHIEVE A FLAWLESS SKIN & LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE NO MAKE UP ON

I love a full face of make up that looks almost like I am not wearing any make up. I have mastered this art by repeatedly doing my own make up and other people’s make up too. If you look at the photo at the top very well, you will notice that I have my brows done (intense because make up is neutral) eye make up done, contour done, blush done, lashes done and nude lips done. That is a full face of make up that looks like I wasn’t wearing so much. The photo is not photoshopped / altered, that is my real face!
