Go Matte Or Go Home!

Before I gave birth, I envisaged Maternity Leave to be a time where I would successfully juggle a newborn baby with a lot of free time to do whatever I wanted.  I imagined me being one of those Mums who would get up bright and early, do some yoga, make some fabulous smoothie concoction in a hipster Mason jar (and Instagram it!) and drink it with a stripy straw, followed by Baby Time and when she napped, I would be able to carry on my day and do plenty of blogging and make plenty of clean-eating meals, blah blah blah.  It all seemed so easy…

Reality check – it has been the total opposite!!!  I just have NO free time!!!  Motherhood is hard work and I’m not afraid to say that some days are a struggle because it is so intense and full-on.  It is, by far, the most difficult thing I have ever encountered.  But at the same time, I love it soooo much and I feel immensely blessed.

Anyway, I am rattling on (not an easy feat typing with one hand as the other hand/arm is cuddling the baby) when I am supposed to be introducing you to the Matte beauty stash I have been loving lately…  Yes, I still have a bit of time for makeup.  I refuse to be a frumpy mummy so I am happy being a semi-yummy mummy hehe…

Happy Monday ladies!  Like OMG, I have had the most beauty tip-tastic (yes that is a word :P) weekend after attending the L’Oreal Paris & Marie Claire Beauty Workshop on Saturday and learning from the infamous Rae Morris.  And then yesterday, I had a Makeup Masterclass with Master Makeup, Dean Nixon – who was oh-so-funny!!!!  I can’t wait to gather all these beauty tips together and share them with you in a blog post… BUT the problem is – I discovered Candy Crush Saga and my life has changed.  I am UBER obsessed so the beauty blog posts may be a bit slow for the next week or two!  I must conquer it!!!!!

Anyway, luckily, I still had one unpublished post left…so take it away China Glaze Beauty & The Beach!
