Ready for a Revolution

Revolution Drinks

I probably shouldn't have started writing this post while I'm waiting on my dinner and super hungry... or when it's a cosy Sunday evening, we've got the fire roaring and the thought of a wee cocktail sounds just ideal right about now. We have more nights in rather than nights out these days, but a couple of weeks ago my Mum took Reuben for the afternoon so me and Pete could go on a lil daytime date. We went to the cinema to see The Wife, a film I worked on a couple of years ago now which has finally been released. Then we popped down to the newly opened Revolution on Mitchell Street for a bite to eat and some drinks.

Seven months of Roo

Reuben bath time

Oh baby boy, just look at you. The past 7 months have went by in an absolute blur, but at the same time it feels like Reuben has been here forever. I look at my timehop from a year ago, and being pregnant feels like such a distant memory (not distant enough yet that I could confidently contemplate the thought of bringing another human into the world any time soon - ha!) We have spent the last couple of months settling into our new home, away from the bright lights of the city and instead we nestle into the leafy suburbs, everything quiet and calm and more than we could have ever wished for. I'll be sharing some photos of the new house on here soon (if anyone fancies a nosy?) and thought I'd start off with a little tour of Reuben's bedroom and how he's been doing since the last update a couple of months ago.

A cruelty free makeup look for Autumn

Girls with tattoos

I am definitely not an expert when it comes to applying makeup, but I like to think I've improved since my early blogging days in 2010 (this post was my 'daily face' back then, looool) I remember fondly posting makeup 'hauls' and aaaall of the selfies, in particular when we all got excited about new launches such as Mac Venomous Villains! Back then I wasn't scared about posting my makeup face on the internet in comparison to today... where I feel like the standards are super high and I'll probably get laughed at by some young 'uns who have perfected their cut creases and contouring down to a t. In my opinion, teens nowadays miss out the rite of passage which we had after the millennium, of amateur (and very lovingly) applied makeup with the likes of Miss Sporty foundation (on your lips too of course) Barry M Dazzle Dust (the green shimmer was my fave) and absolutely nada on your eyebrows because that just wasn't a thing yet. Actually, having a lot of eyebrow hair wasn't really a thing either - and 10 years on I am still suffering from the over plucking 19 year old Ayden thought was a fabulous idea to do.
