Mac haul

I am a huge fan of Mac and as a learning beauty therapist make up is my thing. 

My friend is fully trained in Mac and I'm so envious of her! I got these bugs from a woman I know who has a Mac obsession so she buys so much she rarely uses it all.  So I lucked out on great prices !

All of these are nothing like anything in my collection so I'm very excited to test, try and search and let you know my thoughts. 

Have you got any of these colours?

Bio oil put to the test

So this will be an ongoing type of feature on my blog as it's not a quick fix solution. 

We have recently moved house and unfortunate the dream rental wasn't quite as dreamy as we had hoped. The house was quite literally jumping with flees and I was super tasty. 
So I have asked bio oil to help me and they have kindly sent me my first bottle on my way to recovery and scar free legs. 


I will be checking in weekly to show you my progress. I will be using bio oil every day twice a day for 3 months. 

So keep your fingers crossed for my dinner legs to make a come back. 

Love Aimee

Be a stay at home mum and work for your self with avon

Carrie Twining used to work as a Buyer in Birmingham, but she’s quit the stress of working in the city to spend time with her little boy. Now pregnant with her second child she has made a career out of building her Avon business up from being a Representative to now being a Sales Leader with a team of 180 Representatives that she mentors.


Are you a mother or pregnant mummy-to-be and want to look at ways to make some money without having to go back to the slog of work? Here’s Carries top tips on how you can make Avon work for you. It’s easy and most importantly, really fun!


1) Set a goal. If you have something to work towards you are sure to succeed. Is there a holiday you want to take the kids on?

2) Make a plan on how you’re going to achieve that goal. Avon can be as much or as little as you make it. The Sales Leadership programme means you can have a team as big or as small as you make it.

3) Be positive, all the time. If you have a slow month, the next one is going to be brilliant so it doesn’t matter.

4) Learn about the products. Avon offers more than just lipstick and you’ll be surprised what you can offer customers.

5) Talk to people every day, everywhere you go with the kids about Avon – school gates, supermarket, anywhere.

6) Vary your prospecting techniques and find what works for you - I love 'Car Jumping' which is stopping other mothers who are out and about when I see them from my car. Chances are they’re looking for extra income too!

7) Once you’ve got recruits, look after your team. They are the heart of your business

8) Ask for help & learn from others. Avon has a great core network of people who will help you out along the way.

9) Plan your hours ahead. If the holidays are coming up, make sure you get ahead on your orders. That way you can enjoy them.

10) Be happy and have fun! This is the most important thing. Avon is a great way to meet new people and work around your schedule. So no need to feel stressed!

Easter baking with autumn

I'm I am no baker but I after this fun little mummy daughter play date I have realised even I can cock up Rick crispie cakes. 

Yes I know they may look pretty but one bite and you will be zooming off with a sugar high like no other. 

It was the first time iv done this and it won't be the last it's bee a great bonding thing for me and autumn, I often doubt if I'm a goon mother due to my lack of baking and cooking skills. 

So here are some Easter snaps from our bonding session. 

Basically the problem the chocolate started to set befor the rice crispie were mixed in so the ratio of chocolate and syrup to crispier was far from even.

I would LOVE some ideas to do with my little girl so please comment and give me some top bonding days and activities.

Casual pinks nudes and greys

I am fairly unfashionable since being a mum buy in working on not looking like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards and got dressed in the dark. 

Before being a mummy I nailed it spent time and money on fashion and enjoyed spending time on myself getting ready. 

Now I spend time trying to get my 2 year old daughter ready through years and tantrums and I swear she looks more fashionable than me. 

But I think this is a pretty cute look 
It's a sale top from tesco for £4
A grey strappy from new look about 6 years ago under it. 
And nude semi smart looking stretch boot cut trousers from primark two seasons ago. 
Teamed with ballet pumps 
And a dash of sanity because i swear Iv lost a few marbles in the last few years. 

Lots of love 

Aimee & my more fashionable daughter Autumn xx

Taking a time out for some photo fun

Being an adult is really quite serious role in life to undertake. It's not something that I feel we are ever going to be fully prepared for so when life gets tough and throws you lemons through the fuckers back. 

So I took a little bit of a time out with my two year old daughter autumn and we just had some serious selfie fun so here I am sharing our selfies with you.
