I should probably rename this to 'whenever I do something weekly edition'. Getting out the house and doing something is sometimes so hard with a newborn. It makes life exceptionally rewarding but also very dull!
Having a baby has meant my daily makeup routine has really had to change. Unfortunately I don't have time to faff about with highlighters, or lip liners on a daily basis. I am lucky if I get a shower before midday most days! My routine has to be swift, concise and more importantly effective. I mean, no one wants to see those panda eyes do they?
If you read my 8 Things No One Told Me About Postpartum blog post, I mentioned breastfeeding, and the fact that it is the most trying thing I have ever done. No exaggeration. I think there is so much emphasis on the benefits of breastfeeding your baby that no one really covers the reasons why you might stop, or not want to try it to begin with!
I wanted the living to be as bright and airy as possible, so again I stuck to Dulux Timeless (this colour ran throughout the house) and went for a Dulux Egyptian Cotton feature wall, sort of like a light taupe? It definitely softens up the room and makes it a bit less clinical.
