So I have finally bitten the bullet and embraced the video blogging age.
And what better way to start off than with a review of my new favourite beauty product – Younique 3D fiber lash mascara.
I joined Younique because I loved the idea of the eye pigments (more on those later). I didn’t really expect to like the mascara because I wear glasses and most mascara makes my eyes itch and smudges my glasses.
But what a revelation. longer, thicker, waterproof lashes and no itches or smudges. I wear it nearly all the time now.
Working from home and running your own business seems like a dream for many women, but more and more of us are now making that a reality. Combining a business and running the home you work from is often found to be a difficult hurdle to overcome, but by organising your work and housecleaning a little better it is possible to live your dream and have a happy home. Here are a few tips that will help you be the woman you want to be.
If you are not the only person living in your home make sure that you are not the only one doing the household chores. Women spend around 12,896 hours doing housework through their lifetimes, while men only spend 6,448 hours. Imagine freeing up that amount of time for your business or leisure. Make sure you don’t stop there though; your kids could be helping out too.
Obviously, cycling to work has many benefits: it saves you money on petrol, takes a lot of the stress out of commuting, and can improve your overall physical health (not to mention, you have an excuse to buy some pretty cool-looking cycling outfits). But, getting on your bike on a regular basis also has amazing benefits for the environment. Here are some simple ways this simple choice can help you to save the planet:
It Reduces Emissions
Emissions from fossil-fuel-powered cars are the single biggest source of air pollution in many countries, accounting for over 30% of the carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere and contributing to global warming, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Full time permanent employment can become complicated, unsustainable or completely unviable once you have started a family. Whilst many employers now offer flexi-time arrangements for employees, your chosen career path may not support this. Working from home may also not be an option for certain industries.
There is also the cost of childcare to be considered, what hours this childcare is available, who will take care of your child if they are ill, school holiday arrangements etc.
So what are the options aside from full-time permanent employment?
There has been a sharp decline in the numbers of people buying their home in recent years. Figures show that home ownership has fallen from 71 per cent in 2003 to 65.2 per cent last year, the lowest level since 1987.
New rules that came into effect in April 2014 have made it harder to get a mortgage application approved. House prices have increased and banks require bigger deposits than previously. These changes have become necessary since the financial crisis of 2007.
Lending money is big business, banks and other financial institutions are in competition for more customers. As a result of irresponsible lending and often negligent financial advice, many borrowers took on mortgages which only seemed affordable. Unfortunately many of these borrowers were left struggling to repay their mortgage, or have even had their homes repossessed.
Why should the boys have all the fun in Movember? We can “grow a mo” too, using the loveliest products from our make up bags. I dare you to get out there and show your make up mo in aid of mens cancer and mental health.
Some of you may know that my brother Pete Anderson lost his battle with cancer last month, and so this is my tribute to him.
Here is the Movember challenge girls style:
Paint on a mo with your makeup and take a selfie. Post a copy of it in the mo competition post in this facebook group
