Honey I'm Home... Cosmo Awards and Blog Break

How you all doing? Wrapped up for winter? Sipping on gingerbread lattes and feeling festive? I know you blogging lot well don't I? :)

This feels so strange! I haven't blogged since September and it's November.
 It. Is. November.

I've obviously taken a blogging break but it was a completely unintentional one. 2 months worth... My God! 
Nothing in my life is ever planned, I mean I do have (some) self awareness so I know I'm a touch chaotic and ridiculously a tad disorganised but to be MIA for like 8 weeks is longer than I expected... I guess life just took over. 
The weirdest thing is that I have actually made time to blog over the past few weeks BUT I am Lady Procrastinator, plus I've had the back-to-blogging nerves, like when you've been on holiday and the night before you go back to work you feel all tentative and clueless!

So before I start posting about lipstick and other such important items I'll give you a quick recap of my October...

Aw little bit of reminisce as I uploaded that picture. YES October saw me with my fingers and eyes crossed at the Cosmo Blog Awards. I didn't win of course but massive congratulations to all the wonderful winners on the night.
I have a (not so) secret soft spot for Megan (simply quirky gorgeousness) and Hannah (stunning... I want her teeny lil waist) and I can see them two in the established beauty section next year.
I met loads of amazing people and got some hilariously cringe photo booth pictures.
So if you nominated me or voted for me then I can't thank you enough and I won't stop being grateful, I feel incredibly lucky to have been there.


I rocked a bit of Candy Yum Yum on the lips but BE WARNED... Do NOT apply Maybelline Baby Lips in Hydrate over it at any point or your neon pink pout will develop a darkened violet sorta hue.

My plaited up-do was thanks to the super lovely Amanda White who was sent through Return to Glory which is a London based company that offers a mobile service direct to your door- you want your hair done? your make up applied? a massage? some yoga? They'll send someone to do it!

Pink lips, blue nails and BEEEOWDIFAL blue suede shoes.


And what a bag of treats!
Cheers Cosmo :)

Oh and October also saw me saying goodbye to my beautiful home bred  Ragdoll kittens. My little Ella and Tottie (christened by my two boys) went off to their forever homes renamed Mia and Izzy.

Here's a little picture of my boys and my golden retriever Phoebe... three little culprits guilty of keeping me busy :)
A little off topic BUT I have no recent photos of me and my husband. 
That is my MISH in November.

See you VERY soon...

Lots of lovely love

Love K
