Read With Me #47

Hello you lovely lot. So today my oldest daughter is torning the big 1 0 and true to form she has lots of books coming.

I have bought her a few of the classic Goosebumps books and she finally got the full set of Harry Potter books courtesy of my dad.

What I like now is that we can read a lot of the same books which leads to plenty of discussions about characters, storylines etc.

She actually got a set today which I am yet to read, The Mazerunner series, have any of you read it?

Now my favourite post last week came from the lovely Tracey Bowden from Frazzled Mum Blog.

She kindly shared her latest short story with us all and I'll admit than I am more than a bit intrigued as to what is going to happen next.

Applying Make Up When You Have Eczema

I've suffered with eczema almost all of my life. When I was around 10 it was at it's worst, it covered a lot of my body and the whole of my face. It was itchy beyond belief and there were times that I would scratch so much that I'd make myself bleed.

Various creams etc were tried, we even resorted to steroid creams for my face which is frowned upon but eventually through trial and error it was made to calm down but the eczema never disappeared completely.

As I got older I felt an ever growing need to cover it up. I'm sure you know how teenagers can be, some of their comments were nothing less than cruel and it left me feeling very upset, with very little confidence in myself. This is when I started to wear make up.

Trouble is my mum never really wore it and having brothers I had noone to advice me on how best to apply it.

Wardrobes, Shelves and A New Space Made

When we moved into our home a little under a year ago we knew that there was plenty of work that needed doing. Not all of it major, infact most of it was more redecorating (damn wood chip). But one room that was in need of a do over was Freya's bedroom.

This bedroom is what would have been the loft. Now I'm not sure who designed this space however my feeling is that whoever did really needed they're eyes testing because what they done was quite frankly ridiculous.

Chocolate Coconut Mug Cake Recipe

I bought a bag of coconut flour a while ago. At the time I didn't realise how different it was to other flours. It makes for quite a dense cake and you can't use the same measures so you can't just go copying a recipe and switching the flour suggested for coconut instead.

Coloud Boom Kids Headphones Review

My children take after me, they love music, the louder the better however we don't always agree on the type of music we want to listen to. This is where the Coloud Boom Kids headphones come in handy because it means they can listen to their 1D without annoying mummy!
