Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick Review

Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new type of post for me. I thought it would be fun to review some makeup products and see if they do as they claim.

Whilst shopping in town i popped into Boots and had a browse around the different makeup. I have been looking for a lipstick for work that is long lasting so I do not have to reapply it. There are so many brands claiming to do this and it gets so confusing.

Anyway, I spotted a brand I have not used in years! And when I say years I mean years. I used to use this as a teenager because it is so affordable. Seventeen is still as good value as ever although there are even more affordable brands out there nowadays. Luckily Seventeen also has an offer of buy one item get one half price so it would have been rude not to buy something.

I chose a lipstick from the ‘Stay Pout’ range which is supposed to be long wearing. It is under £5 and there are 15 shades to chose from (but the shade I wanted was out of stock … grrrrr). I ended up choosing ‘Just a Fling’ which is a nice peachy nude perfect for daytime wear.

I have uploaded a video onto YouTube showing how it applied and then I did a few check ins throughout the day after eating and drinking to show how well it was holding up to it’s claims. You can view the video below….

I think this lipstick was ok as far as lipsticks go. It lasted fairly well but no where near what I was expecting. It was a nice formula and felt comfortable to wear however I think that it would need reapplying after 4- 5 hours. I would be happy to purchase again in another shade.

I have a YouTube channel!

Hi guys, well I am back posting ..... sort of. I have ventured in YouTube .... ooh it is a very scary place and so different to blogging. It is fair to say my videos are pretty basic at the moment but hopefully soon I will be an editing whizz!

I am hoping to bring a different angle to so many of the channels that are there jus now. Everyone seems to be in their 20's with perfect makeup and hair and eyebrows like you wouldn't believe. I, am so far away from that and I do feel a bit old and crinkly in comparison lol.

Hopefully I will be easier to relate to for lots of viewers who do not live in the land of perfection but instead in the real world where we often have 100 other things we need to be doing and jus getting any makeup on is an achievement.

Here is my intro video .... argh 😱😱😱

I would really love if myellow Crafter's could pop over and support me and say hi, subscribe and leave the odd comment. I am really excited about staring this so fingers crossed it all works out xxx

A Change of Plan

I really struggled to sleep last night and I started thinking .... why am I starting another new blog when I have this old faithful right here? So I think I am going to have a little spring clean on my side bar to allow it to reflect where I am now in my life. We all change as we get older and so if I can do it then so can my blog. I will probably change the name of my blog to reflect this but it will still just be me rambling on as usual. 

Hopefully I will post most days, even if just a few lines about my day. I will also be sharing favourite recipes, updates on my fitness journey and loads of info on my new obsession of beauty boxes. I plan to share my views of the products inside these and also chat about any new things I have discovered. There will also be posts about Ruby, my gorgeous dog, as well as nights out and time spent with friends and family. Somewhere in it all there might even be some crafting to remind me of the good old days.

I am so happy to be back, can't wait to catch up with you all again after all this time and to meet lots of new bloggers too. Not sure how many of us oldies are still blogging 10 years on but I can't wait to find out.

Have a lovely Monday and I hope the week is good to you xxx


Gi guys, just a quick post to share a link for £5 off your first Birchbox Beauty box. Thought I would share here even though not craft related. I got mine just over a week ago and it is amazing!!!

Hope this is useful to some of you xx

First make of the year

Happy new year everyone. I hope you had a lovely time over the holidays. Can I just mention how awful the floods have been. There has been flooding all around me. Thankfully I was not affected but I know lots who were, it has just been awful.  

Onto happier things and here is my first make of the new year. It is a simple crochet bobble hat. It is such an easy hat to make and by doing the single crochet into the back of the loop it resembles a ribbed effect.

I love this wool.  Think I will make a matching scarf and mitts to go with it.  Right, that's it for now - hope to be back soon xxx
