5 Products I Use On A 'Minimal-Makeup-Mummy-Day'

Some days I just really can't be bothered to put any makeup on whats so ever, particularly Sundays, but there really is days where I have to try and make a little bit of effort for my own sanity especially when the great wide world is going to see me!

I thought i'd show you a few products that I use on a low-key mum day.

I love this concealer it has amazing coverage and completely trusty to keep those eye circles trapped away all day long. The thing I like about this also is that it doesn't highlight areas like some it just hides them which is perfect because no one wants highlighted under eye circles now do they..

You're probably thinking why do you use 2 concealers.. well like I said with the previous product that MAC Concealer doesn't highlight isn't to say that I don't like a concealer that highlights. This concealer is great to cover up any blemishes which I have around my cheek area. Hence why it isn't always neccessary to put foundation on.

This is honestly one of the best highlighters i've ever had and is always my go to to make me look a little healthier! I've repurchased this probably about 3 times and would continue to do so.

If you ever asked me the question of 'if you were on desert island and would only be able to take one makeup item, what would it be? It would be this alllll dayyyy everyyyy dayyy! It's only in the last couple of year i've loved brow products and I just couldn't live without it now, this is a great one because it looks so natural, not harsh at all! Even if you have no makeup on I feel like adding something to your brows really shapes your face and makes you look 100x better.

Mascara has always been a holygrail beauty product for me, I received this mascara for Christmas after having it a few years back. It's such an amazing product and helps give your lengthy and dramatic lashes.

What are your favourite products to put on low-key kinda day?

5 Thoughts I've Had At Soft Play


Yesterday, I went to a soft play centre near to where I live. I'm never really a fan of soft play anyway, however what I do like is being able to sit down whilst little one is distracted and happy for an hour or so. It may not be a quiet hour but it sometimes can be if you don't go in half term like I did!

Here are a few thoughts I had yesterday:

1. Why the eff do you they put rides in there, you know the ones they put in arcades. My little girl doesn't care about soft play. She's trying to get more money out of me to put in the ride so then she can scream and have a tantrum when it stops. They're so unnecessary! Especially when there is already so much to do in there!

2. Why do kids much much older than 4 go in the Under 4's play area. Your area is way better than the little peoples so why would you want to go in! I think my 19 month old got knocked over at least 6 or 7 times by people twice her age.

3. That the sign Children must be supervised at all times goes out the window which kinda carries on from the last point I made. Kids climbing up the slides when other kids are trying to go down them, and like I said Kids going in the under 4's area when they are clearly fair over. It's total carnage!

4. They smell like poo and are filthy. I don't know whether this is just my local soft play but I've definitely come to the conclusion that they are filthy sticking germ riddled places. The amount of kids that smell like they need there nappy changing too!

5. Going home.. this is like the ultimate tantrum trigger when you announce that it is time to leave.. and then it leaves you thinking 'was it even worth coming to this place'.

Obviously, Darcy loves soft play and this is the main and most important thing. I do try and force myself to take her once a fortnight. I just bleeding hate the place though!

What are your thoughts on soft play centres? Do you hate them as much as me?!
