It’s rained ever since

About three weeks ago everything in my little world got turned upside down again.  Two months ago I was beyond excited to bring home my new little baby puppy, the cutest, most adorable little thing you have ever seen.  I guess having a puppy is good preparation for having a baby; you get up in the middle of the night with them, look after them and make sure they have everything they need because they are your sole responsibility.  George Jenson was my little baby.  Two weeks ago he sadly passed away.

My saying is that ‘everything happens for a reason’, but right now, I can’t see how this could all be for a reason, maybe one day I will understand, but not right now.  Every day I miss him, it hurts, it’s just so sad that I won’t see him grow up, but no matter what I do there is nothing I can do to change things.  Every day gets a little easier but it’s still always there, and then every now and again I’ll remember what has happened and get upset all over again, I think it’s something I will just have to accept.  I guess it shows how much you can love something if it’s this painful when they are gone.

Normally I write the post title without a second thought, but today I spent a long time thinking exactly what would be fitting, and this one just says it all.  The day after George died it did just start raining, and other than one or two days, it has rained and has been miserable ever since, in every way.

I’m not normally the type of person to tell everyone my business, unless someone asks they won’t know.  I don’t put anything on facebook or go around sharing details of what’s important to me or what I’m thinking with hardly anyone, this blog one of the places I’m most honest, and even then I wouldn’t share most things.  I was all set to just jack it all in, thinking that I don’t want to spend time taking shallow pictures of myself in whatever outfit I’m wearing today.  But then I realised that without this blog I wouldn’t have taken half of the pictures I have, I wouldn’t have the memories to look back on one day.  I wouldn’t have had many photos of George without taking pictures in preparation for this blog, but thankfully I have enough to show him having grown up in the short time he had.  So for now I am going to take a little break from the blogging, but I will be back, just stick with me... please.

Until then, appreciate every little thing and don’t take anything for granted, easier said than done I know.

Love you little man.

Bye for now,

Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex Mascara: A Review

This is a product I only bought a few days ago, but having been so impressed with the results on both myself and my sister, who originally had the product, I thought I would give it a quick review.

As it goes, I’m a fan of Rimmel mascara’s anyway.  I normally use the Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara, but after seeing how good this product was on my sister I figured that I just had to give it a go.  I say had to, I would like to point out that no-one forced me to try it, it was all purely my decision and by no means did I feel pressurised to use this mascara.

So anyway, I had to try it (please see above), and by damn, I’m sure glad I did.

The packaging is bright green so you can’t miss it and can easily remember which one it is when, if like me you have the memory of a gold fish who has had a frontal lobotomy, you can still seek it out to buy later on.  So although maybe bright green may not be to everyone’s taste, it works for wee little brained people like me, lovely job.

What I find with mascara’s is that the most important thing is the brush, the bigger the better I say.  I’m not talking about a hair brush sized mascara wand, that would be ridiculous and I would almost definitely get the damn stuff all over my face... even more so than now... oops.  No, I just mean, that the bigger, good old fashioned straight round shaped ones are the best, and this one ticks every box.

It wears well and lasts all day and just like it says on the tin (tube, whatever...), it really does flex.  It doesn’t go hard and crispy like most mascaras I’ve used, it actually feels relatively natural on your old lashes (well, as natural as your gonna get when you wee hairs are coated with a thick coat of mascara).

Oh and finally, seens as really, as it’s a mascara, and let’s face it, the most important thing is what it does for your lashes, I would like to say that it’s blinkin’ awesome.  It doesn’t clump, and applies so easily and really does make your lashes look thicker and longer.  What more could you want!  In order to prove this point, I have taken some before and after photos, I really hope you all appreciate this:



So there you go, I would give this mascara a 9/10, a very high rating; a very high rating indeed.

I hope you found this review useful, informative or if nothing else mildly entertaining.

Bah Bye y’all,
