OOTD: Date day in Liverpool


  Hubby and I had a random date day in Liverpool and you know what?

The £350 makeover


      I’ll level with you: I’m far too cheap to actually ever spend £350 on makeup in one sitting. But my office was going out to a fancy-pants summer do and I had to somehow improvise a full face of makeup that would last all night in the blistering heat and I just knew there was no way…
