Day 2 SBBC My favourite jewelry and eyeshadow palette

When I saw the lifestyle topic suggestion from today I didn't think I was going to write about it because I don't have a lot of jewelry and I nowadays seldom wear jewelry.

But then I thought it would be nice to challenge myself and to write about the topic anyway, even though I'm planning to do another post for today as well.

I thought about the jewelry that I do have and decided that my favourite piece of jewelry is my big sparkly ring. I love it because I absolutely love bling and this ring is really very 'blingy'.
I received it together with a  matching necklace and watch as a prize when I was an AVON business developer.

I also wasn't sure about the beauty topic since I don't have a fancy eye shadow palette. I don' t use eye shadow often lately but decided to still give it a go.

I have a few small eye shadow palettes from my AVON time.  They are quite simple palettes. They all have four different colours.

'Smokey eyes' has white, pink, silver and medium grey
'Ice lagoon' has light blue, very light grey , dark silver and very dark grey (almost black)
'Cocoa dreams' has four different shades of brown. The light one is matte and the rest has a shine in them.
'Starlet has white', light silver, dark silver and soft black.

I must say that I haven't tried a lot of them out. But my favourite colours would be the black, white, blue and then brown on the left below. My kids always seem to find them and mess them up completely, that's why some of them look a bit weird.

I decided to try the above mentioned favourite colours out and this is the result.

Soft black, white, light blue and shiny brown

This is the light blue and apparently on top the shiny brown I tried before that

This is the white

This is the soft black. I love this look.

What eyeshadow palette are you using ? Which of the above looks do you like the most ?
What is your favourite jewelry ?

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
