The Charmed Life of Alex Moore

You may have seen in previous posts that I set myself a reading challenge at the beginning of the year to read 12 books in the 12 months. You may also have seen that I am failing miserably in this goal, it’s nearly the end of June and I have just finished my 4th book of the year. I clearly need a kick up the arse

The Demise of Table Manners

I am currently writing this on my phone at my desk at work I am on my lunch break not skiving before you ask, and I am having to type this one handed as the other hand is over my nose in an attempt to subdue the pungent smell of fish coming from one of the other desks.

Shush....

There are a great many things in life that we don’t talk about as we are embarrassed, ashamed or just don’t know how to talk about it.

The first one that springs to mind is mental health. I started this blog after I was diagnosed with depression and decided I needed an outlet to express what was going on in my head, but I never actually talked about any of it.

Milk Makeup

It officially launched in the UK exclusively on www.cultbeauty.co.uk on the 28th January but I actually went to the pop up launch two days earlier on 26th, not an exclusive event it was open to anyone (as long as you were willing to queue outside for an hour and a half) But it did give you a chance to see the products and try them in person rather than guessing your shade and ordering online.

Practicing Positivity

A few days ago I heard about “the law of attraction” (late on the band wagon for this one I know) and thought it is something I wanted to explore and try to incorporate in my life.

Many of the books relating to this topic encourage what I will politely refer to as “enthusiastic participation”. These are the ones that involve mood boards, visualisation and repeating daily affirmations to your self in the mirror every morning, which may be why I never read any of them, but the basic premise is something I can get behind.

Karl Largerfeld + Model Co Eyeshadow Palette

OK, before we start I should warn you that I am a sucker for packaging! I know it is just packaging and we should be focused on what’s inside, but be honest we all like something that looks good.

So when I saw this pallette I really wanted it but just couldn't justify the £48 price tag. So when I saw this on Cult Beauty 70% off I decide to go for it.
