Haulin': Nars and Charlotte Tilbury

If it's not obvious from the picture - I love Nars. I didn't even realise I'd mainly bought all Nars products until taking photos.

Week Three: Stanmore Pain Management and Rehabilitation Programme, Part Eight

| Day One |

That was my last night in the hotel; I can’t believe I’m already in my final week of rehab. I arrived at Stanmore at 9 am and unpacked my things ready for the weekend review. I completed the majority of my goals but didn’t download WorkRave as I was being stubborn and wanted to get quite a bit of writing done. My shoulder paid for the lack of rest breaks I took and I’m definitely going to

All About that Glow: Becca Cosmetics Highlighter Review

Becca Cosmetics is renowned for their Shimmering Skin Perfectors and it took me a while to get round to owning any. I'm a matte skin kind of girl so didn't use highlighters a lot as I thought I'd end up looking too greasy.

Week Two: Stanmore Pain Management and Rehabilitation Programme, Part Seven

| Day One |

I stayed at a hotel again last night and had a decent night’s sleep. I arrived on the ward at 9 am and the nurses helped me in with my bags; after unpacking I went for a Weekend Review and the group shared whether they had achieved their weekend goals. I did, and was really pleased with myself. On Saturday I managed to iron one leg of my jeans and my boyfriend did the rest because I was pacing myself. I was glad that I was putting what I’d learnt into practice.

Urban Decay Smoky Palette

| Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette | £38 | Link |

I'm finally getting round to posting about the new Urban Decay Smoky palette. I bought it on pre-release online but it arrived the day I went into hospital, so I had to wait to play around with it.

Top 5 Mac Lipsticks

Mac Lipstick | £15.50 | Link |

Like most beauty bloggers I have a soft spot for Mac lipsticks, they have this hold over me and as soon as I see a Mac counter a force grabs me and pulls me towards the lippies. Then I have to buy one (or three), it's the rules.

Week One: Stanmore Pain Management and Rehabilitation Programme, Part Six

| Day One |

I had a very early start and didn't sleep well. I Skyped my best friends and boyfriend last night for some last minute encouragement. My bags were brought in from the car by one of the nurses so I didn't have to struggle and I was shown to my bed. My weight, height, blood pressure and temperature were taken and then I unpacked. A few of the other patients were on their second and third weeks so they answered any questions I had. Myself and fellow newbies attended a Welcome Meeting, we introduced ourselves and received our timetables. I didn't really feel nervous, I was more curious of the programme. Thankfully, there was quite a few free hours in my timetable for down time/resting - I knew I'd need it. Finally, I met my physiotherapist (PT), Jason and occupational therapist (OT), Sally. We discussed my goals and areas I think I may need help with. I wasn't given any exercises - that's tomorrow. I need sleep.

Spoonie Struggle: Explaining my Disability to Others

How do you do it?
How do you tell someone that you're disabled?
Is it as easy as just blurting it out?
Do you not bother?
Do you go into detail?

Top 10 July Beauty Favourites

This is my first ever monthly favourites, woo. I plan on doing this every month, well, because I want to. They won't always be crammed with beauty related products but there'll be a hell of a lot of make up goodness in there. I tried a few new things in July and reunited with some old faves, so let's do this.
