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.
