My First Zoella Product

At Christmas my partner bought me a new make up bag, after a lot of hints. I needed a new one as I was actually using a soap and glory bag that came with a gift set I received the christmas before. 
When Zoella first bought her range out, I knew I needed a new bag. I like all of them but the large size one would be perfect, I found this design the best. 
I love the bag as much as I thought I would. Its a perfect size, it holds everything I need. 
I think it's the cutest make up bag i've ever seen, let alone owned. The nice peach colour is on the lining of the bag. The outside of the bag is easy to wipe clean if you need to clean it. 
For £15 it's available in Superdrug stores.

I thought I would do a post a little different, just for any mummy's out there or mum's to be. 
My son is almost 6 months old however we started him on solids at 4 months as advised by our health visitor. He took to solids very well, we never had a problem with him drinking milk he always finished everything. 
I'm going to discuss a few of the things we used in our house when starting my baby on weaning. 

We use 2 different types of spoons, we received munchkin spoons as a gift when our son was born, 
I really like these, they are brightly coloured and very soft. 
However we later bought some Tommee Tippee ones that i much prefer, 
The spoons are bigger which means they can hold more food. As you can see you get 5 in a pack. They also do a different version for 7 months and above however these ones are for 4 month olds, perfect for starting on solids. 
I know a lot of mothers blend food, this I thought was just too time consuming and I realised it would be cheaper to do feeding with the cow and gate jars. They have a wide range of meals and desserts that are pretty much all 10 for £5 which i think is great value, depending on where you buy them.
When we started, we gave our son half a jar of food, and half a jar of desert. Now my son is older he has a full jar at meal times. 
We have also moved onto different brands now, I think the hipp organic meals are great. 
I find these fruit pots are great as a dessert, most of the baby brands do different versions of these and I think they are all good. My baby doesn't complain. 

Weaning my son has been super easy, I think I have just been lucky because he will eat anything he is given. Everything I have mentioned I bought from my local supermarkets.

Match Perfection

I've been trying to try different foundations recently. 
I've found my skin is in much better condition so I feel like I don't need as heavy a coverage but I still want my skin to look as flawless as possible. Normally I use mattifying products, but with it being winter my skin is a little drier so I would try a more liquid base. 
However this was foundation really does nothing for my skin. I have oily patches and I find no amount of powder keeps me matte. 
The coverage still isn't enough, with some concealer, obviously it gives me a good base, but I still don't like the way it makes me look. 

The shade range is very good, 
If I remember correctly they have re formulated this product, as i'm sure I have tried this before, however I think I preferred it before they changed it. 
I'm not saying that in general this is a bad foundation however it does nothing for my skin type so if your oily I would avoid this.

Eye brow

I have always used brow powder (well eyeshadow) until very recently I tried a brow gel from Rimmel, it's very effective. 
' Brow this way ' I simply apply the product to the bulk of my hairs and then with a angled brush, I brush out the product to make the perfect eyebrow shape. To do it with the applicator is very difficult as you easily get product everywhere and its difficult to sort out. It clings to every tiny hair and is hard to remove easily if you make a mistake, so you have to be very careful. I think this product makes me eyebrow shade appear more natural and stays ALL day. I find myself removing it at night as it's stayed put all day, no matter what I've done. 

I bought this of a whim, I was literally in Superdrug and saw it and thought oh why not, it was only £3.99, so if I didn't like it, it wouldn't exactly break the bank, If your looking for a new brow product, or if you want to try something different then try this out its very good for the price!
