MAC Cosmetics

Just tried the MAC cosmetics Prep and Prime Beauty Balm SPF35 today and I have to say that it is truly amazing and very reasonably priced at £24. The shades they offer suit my skin tone perfectly as I have found others to be on the more tanned tone and Im very pale and offering 9 shades there’s one for everyone. It offers everything you need for a quick makeup routine in a morning and with having a little girl I want things to be easy and fast with zero fuss in a morning. I simply don’t have the time but want to feel as if I have made some effort. Loving the high SPF as well great for this time of year.

A must for any makeup bag. make beautifully hand iced Biscuits for all occasions and I believe  that they have an app out as well truly amazing so you can make your own with all the guidance you need from this fantastic app, or you can order them and taste how truly scrumptious there shortbread really is.

They do anything from wedding favours, Flower Bouquets and biscuit bunting amazing.
