6. I don’t work. I’m a full time carer to Joshua as well as being his Mummy. He’s got various learning disabilities. I’ve got ill health as well which also means I’m unable to work.

7. I’m engaged to my amazing fiance who’s called Ashley.We’ve been together for 10 years and 4 months and we’ve been engaged for 6 and a half years. Ashley proposed to me on my birthday night out in front of about 15 of my friends and family.

Tattle Life- Constructive Criticism OR Destructive Criticism?

Hi all.

Sorry i’ve been absent for a little while but quite frankly I’ve just had so much on.

Today i want to write about online trolls. I myself these past few months have become a victim to trolling online from a website/forum called Tattle Life.

Tattle Life claim to be a site for people to commentate on and give constructive criticism about YouTubers, Instagrammars even celebrities. I can tell you straight away that it’s neither of them.

I first become aware of the website late last year after being told i was being spoken about on it. Of course curiosity got the better of me and I had to look and when I did look and read what they wrote about me I was absolutely disgusted & hurt. I naturally went on there to defend myself but got banned straight away. Why is it okay for the abhorrent things being said on there yet when someone goes on to defend themselves they are immediately banned? I don’t get it.

I was being discussed on a few threads called “Desperate Family Vloggers- The Gutter Crew” with a few other small YouTube channels. Even the thread title is derogatory. Not so long ago I found out I had 2 threads about just me on the private section of Tattle Life where only certain members are allowed to go.

The admin of the group called Helen and the moderators called Oohthedrama, Hatshepsut, Olivia Pope & Yel all go along with the mocking. How very professional.

It’s been no holds barred with what they’ve been saying about me as well as my kids. They sit on there all day & night belittling and mocking others. Who in their right mind talks about kids like that? Yes those at Tattle Life do.

I’m going to tell you some of the things they’ve said about me. It won’t be everything though, 500 screenshots would take me forever to write.

• They’ve insinuated that I have “a thing” for another YouTuber.

• Accusing me of neglecting my children.

• Judging my looks in a very disgusting and derogatory manner.

• Judging my personal hygiene.

• Someone on there and I know exactly who she is and it’s someone close not someone from the Internet went on there and doxxed me. This person by her comments would of had to of been in my house, much more I could say about this person, a lot more trust me, more to follow.

• Being called “it”, that I look like I have Autism & special needs & that I look non-binary.

• That I’m faking all of my chronic illnesses.

• Insinuated that I had a black eye.

• That i’m a drug addict.

• Calling me a troll which is hypocritical on their behalf being that they are on a trolling website.

• Saying I’m on benefits & committing benefit fraud.

• Calling me a dreg of society.

Oh the list is endless. I’d be here forever.

I wanted to take action over this & once I was doxxed on there I had to call the police. I had a couple of meetings with them and the cyber crime team are investigating Tattle Life. I didn’t think that was enough so I decided to start a petition to boycott Tattle Life. Honestly didn’t think it’d do well however it’s had over 21k signatures. I have full support from my MP and she’s passed it all on to the Home Secretary. I’ve also featured in the press too. Hope all of this works and action gets taken as they can’t keep getting away with this behaviour. It needs nipping in the bud before someone takes their life, is that what it’s going to take?

Anyway if you’d like to sign & share my petition you can below:-

https://www.change.org/p/helen-whately-to-close-the-forum-tattle-life

Also on my Instagram I’ve posted a lot of proof etc on it. You can find my Instagram below:-

My advice- I’d AVOID Tattle Life at all costs!

Thank you so much for reading.

Until next time,

Michelle.

Shop My Stash- March 2019- End Of Month Review.

Hi all.

So I’m determined to use all products in my makeup collection so decided to do monthly shop my stash projects. I will be uploading videos each month onto my YouTube channel showing which products I’ll be using for that month. In March I didn’t do a video as wasn’t doing a shop my stash as such. We went on holiday & I packed my travel makeup bag and actually ended up using the products in there for the whole month & enjoyed using them which gave me the idea of doing monthly shop my stash projects.

So in March I used the following products:-

• LAURA MERCIER FOUNDATION PRIMER.

I really enjoy using this primer. The consistency is gel like. It’s really hydrating on the skin. It’s a perfect canvas for makeup application. I would definitely recommend it.

https://www.spacenk.com/uk/en_GB/makeup/complexion/primer/foundation-primer-50ml-UK113930009.html

• MILK MAKEUP COOLING WATER STICK.

I love this. It’s a solid balm and is so cooling on the skin. Very hydrating & refreshing.

• SIMPLE HYDRATING BOOSTER.

This is actually a skincare product but I thought it could actually work well as a primer. I won’t lie but I didn’t even use this product this month.

• ARGAN LIQUID GOLD BB CREAM.

I put this in this month however prior to applying it it didn’t look right so had to throw it away. However, I’ve obviously used it in the past and it’s not a bad BB cream. It does leave you with glowy skin but I don’t think this product is anything special.

* I unfortunately don’t have a photo of this as threw it away.

Multi-Tone BB Cream

• LANCÔME TEINT IDOLE ULTRA WEAR FOUNDATION.

I really like this foundation. It gives close to full coverage and left my skin looking & feeling flawless.

* I unfortunately don’t have a photo of this as threw it away.

https://www.lancome.co.uk/makeup/face/foundation/teint-idole-ultra-wear-foundation/A00235-LAC.html

• MARCELLE GOLDEN GLOW BB CREAM.

I’d heard a lot of hype about this particular product so was looking forward to using it throughout the month. After the first use I was very unsure as to what to think about it. On using it a second time I began to like it more. It does give you a golden glow. I was tanned as was on holiday and felt it made my skin look orange however everyone was telling me my skin wasn’t orange so must of just been me.

https://www.birchbox.co.uk/product/20801

• NARS RADIANT CREAMY CONCEALER.

OMG 😮 This concealer has fast become a holy grail product of mine. I absolutely love the consistency of it and the coverage, well what can I say. It has AMAZING coverage. It totally conceals those pesky bags and dark circles and any imperfections. I can’t speak any more highly of this product. Love it & highly recommend it.

https://www.narscosmetics.co.uk/en/custard-radiant-creamy-concealer/0607845012344.html

• COLLECTION ILLUMINATING PRESSED POWDER.

To me I don’t feel there’s much difference between pressed powders. I feel they all do the same job & work in the same way. This one sets my makeup well & gives a bit of a glow.

* I unfortunately don’t have a photo of this as it smashed so threw it away.

https://www.superdrug.com/Collection/Collection-Primed-&-Ready-Illuminating-Setting-Powder/p/709207?TSPD_101_R0=08857a9db1ab200004875c97df193b203590710da5aa181499353e6463a353c29d1341cebeefcfe10810810ae61430006aa88baac8105605e7a056d641e148ec3b3d11c3397cd4e769e201a437b419f1a61eac750b76bd865df50bec05425032

• BENEFIT GIMME BROW.

I absolutely love Benefit brow products & this one doesn’t disappoint. So easy and quick to apply.

https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/uk/en-gb/product/gimme-brow-volumising-eyebrow-gel

• MODEL LAUNCHER BROW’Z.

I enjoy using this brow pencil. Easy to apply & perfect shade for me.

4D9C3576-AFC2-403E-A542-951B3142AE7E

Brow Duo Pencil

• REVOLUTION X SOPH EXTRA SPICE EYESHADOW PALETTE.

So this month was the first time I actually tried this eyeshadow palette and it didn’t disappoint. An array of looks can be created with this eyeshadow palette and each shade is very well pigmented.

https://www.revolutionbeauty.com/Mobile/en/Revolution-X-Soph-Extra-Spice/m-m-6602.aspx

• LOTTIE LONDON EYE FOIL IN THE SHADE NAME SELL OUT.

This is a purple glittery shade eyeshadow topper. Unfortunately I didn’t get to use it this month therefore it remains still sealed.

https://www.superdrug.com/Make-Up/Eye-Makeup/Eye-Shadow/Single-Eye-Shadow/Lottie-London,-Eye-Foil,-Glitter-Eyeshadow-Topper,-Sell-Out/p/770660?TSPD_101_R0=08857a9db1ab20009e32b85df7b5a955a36332884710aa333804592d1c3b22ac63283a477a0f55a608d0a735be143000078c17256b22d5df76690b85ff00b446162554f6aa08b353ea5da2238ca0610f35ed1cb43c5e1e08ece3c04dce492fbd

• LOTTIE LONDON EYE FOIL IN THE SHADE NAME SAVAGE.

This is a light pink shimmery eyeshadow topper. Really pretty. Easy to blend. Got lots of compliments whilst wearing it.

Eye Foil

• ESSENCE LASH PRINCESS MASCARA.

I absolutely love this mascara. It definitely dupes & rivals the Benefit mascaras which I absolutely love. It’s a definite dupe for them & ONLY £3.30. It really lifts, curls and thickens my lashes.

https://www.wilko.com/en-uk/essence-lash-princess-volume-mascara-black/p/0410011

• MISS SPORTY 100% ROCK PUMP UP BOOSTER MASCARA.

Another mascara which I’ve really been enjoying wearing. Definitely gives your lashes volume. The wand is big and can get clumpy so if you don’t like that in a mascara I don’t think you’d like this one.

https://www.miss-sporty.com/products/eye/mascara/pump-up-booster-mascara

• BENEFIT HIGH BEAM.

This is a pink shade liquid highlighter. Really pretty. I’ve been enjoying using it on the usual parts of your face you highlight after applying foundation and prior to using setting powder. A glow from within.

https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/uk/en-gb/product/high-beam-liquid-highlighter

• BENEFIT DANDELION TWINKLE.

This month was the first time I actually used this highlighter. Such a pretty peachy shade. A very subtle highlighter.

https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/uk/en-gb/product/dandelion-twinkle

• REVOLUTION BRONZER.

I got this bronzer from the 2016 Revolution advent calendar. It’s a perfect shade for me and is an okay product.

• TOO FACED LOVE FLUSH BLUSH IN THE SHADE NAME BABY LOVE.

Ive really loved using this product this month. It’s a lovely mauvy/pinky shade. Very pretty & well pigmented.

https://www.johnlewis.com/too-faced-love-flush-blusher/p3753170?sku=237614136&s_kwcid=2dx92700042965465870&tmad=c&tmcampid=2&gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=CjwKCAjw-4_mBRBuEiwA5xnFIJWVWfUrGXs6x23gKdVSxKQh5gwKI2vtTNKjDiBxO0FrjP3WnQNXXRoC7ZAQAvD_BwE

• PIXI BY PETRA BEAUTY BLUSH DUO IN THE SHADE NAME PEACH HONEY.

This is a lovely shimmery blusher, a peach shade and a golden shade which work really well separately or mixed together as a blush topper and/or highlighter.

* You can only get this product in a set.

• MODEL CO X KARL LAGERFELD BLUSHER.

This blusher doesn’t have a shade name. I got it in a beauty subscription box. It’s a baked blusher but personally I feel it’s more of a blush topper and/or highlighter which is how I much prefer to use it. Very pretty shade though and well pigmented.

* Unable to link as don’t know the shade name.

• LOTTIE LONDON GLITTER SWITCH LIQUID LIPSTICK IN THE SHADE NAME WANTED.

This is one of those liquid lipsticks where you apply it, wait 1 minute for it to dry down then pucker your lips & glitter appears. It’s a beautiful mauve/pink shade. I’m not that sure I like the formula of it. It’s got a thick texture which gets gloopy. Have to use a very light hand. It does give you glitter lips though which do look stunning.

Glitter Switch

• SOAP & GLORY SEXY MOTHER PUCKER EXTREME PLUMP XL CLEAR PLUMPING LIPGLOSS.

I do love a good lip plumper as I have very thin lips. It gives you the tingling sensation so if you don’t like that you might not like this product although it’s not an extreme feeling as the name suggests. It has a chocolate scent & taste to it, yummy. I like to use it prior to applying my lip product & it does plump my lips a little.

• COVERGIRL TINTED LIPBALM.

I don’t know the exact name or shade of this product. It’s a lovely nude shade tinted lipbalm which really moisturises your lips well whilst giving it a lovely tint of colour.

5631935D-35F5-4581-8AAB-0E18A56F3B0D

* I’m unable to link this product as unsure of the shade name & Covergirl products are not readily available in the U.K.

• MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS IN HYDRATE.

This is just your typical, standard lipbalm. It really does hydrate your lips well.

• ZOELLA BEAUTY SO SOFT LIP OIL.

This product definitely gives your lips much needed TLC. Super hydrating & soothing. Smells & tastes lush too. Would look lovely over a matte lipstick too.

https://m.feelunique.com/p/Zoella-So-Soft-Lip-Oil-8ml

• LOTTIE LONDON GLOSS’D SUPER-CHARGE GLOSS OIL TINT IN THE SHADE NAME ICED.

I love the idea of this product. It’s like a 3 in 1 product. A gloss, oil & a tint. It does everything it says in the name. Leaves your lips shiny, tinted & hydrated. The shade Iced is a really pretty light pink shade.

• LAQA & CO CLOUD LIPS LIPSTICK IN THE SHADE NAME DAYDREAM.

This lipstick is a mauve shade. It gives a satin finish. Really pretty shade. Super creamy formula and very well pigmented.

• ESSENCE LIPLINER IN THE SHADE NAME 12 WISH ME A ROSE.

This is a pencil lipliner. Really pretty summery pink shade. Helps lipstick stay on longer.

https://essence.eu/uk/products/lips/lipliner/e/product/lipliner-12/

• MODEL CO X KARL LAGERFELD LIPLINER.

I’m not going to lie to you but I didn’t even use this product this month.

* Unable to link product as no shade name.

• SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH PRIMER WATER.

I love this product. Very refreshing & hydrating. Works well at both a primer & a setting spray. I really must try putting it in the fridge before use as I can imagine it would be even more refreshing than it usually is.

So that’s all of the products I used this month. I’ve carried the following products over into April:-

• Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.

• Simple Hydrating Booster.

• Nars Radiant creamy concealer.

• Lottie London Eye Foil in the shade name Sell Out.

• Essence lipliner in the shade name 12 Wish Me A Rose.

• Model Co X Karl Lagerfeld lipliner.

I managed to rid my makeup collection of 3 products this month:-

• Argan Liquid Gold BB Cream which was ?out of date.

• Lancôme foundation which I used all up.

• Collection pressed powder which I smashed, ooops.

Those 3 products actually come to a combined cost of £34.37 so I’m pleased with that.

Well that brings me to the end of this blog post. Thank you so much for reading & I’ll be back next month for April’s edition.

Until next time,

Michelle.

Tili Abstract Beauty Box From QVC. What’s In It & My Thoughts!

Hi all.

Today I want to write a post about a beauty box which I purchased from QVC. The box in question is called TILI (Try It, Love It) Abstract Beauty Box.

QVC release these boxes every 3 months I believe. They aren’t subscription boxes so you aren’t tied into anything. They retail for £20 each with FREE p&p but the value always exceeds that. This is the second box I’ve had and I’ve loved them. Here is the link to purchase the box yourself:-

https://www.qvcuk.com/.product.239010.html?sc=PRODFEED

If your new to QVC when you sign up you get £5 off your first order which will make this box ONLY £15, bargain! Simply use the discount code FIVE4U at the checkout.

* This post isn’t sponsored by QVC or any of the brands featured in the box neither is this an affiliate link.

To start with I think the price of the box is fab. Great value for money. The box design I really like and the presentation is lovely inside the box too & you also get a leaflet telling you a little about the products. The box is really good quality, strong cardboard and it’s really heavy.

SO WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

FLORAL STREET IRIS GODDESS EAU DE PARFUM.

This perfume came in a little box which reminds me of an egg carton with a little band to close it. The packaging of the product is very simple. It’s a 10ml sized bottle. As the name suggests it’s a floral scent, it can be quite overpowering at first but once it’s been on for a minute or so the scent isn’t as strong & a little of it goes a long way.

It’s not full size however you can purchase this size off the website for £22.

MOLTON BROWN JASMIN AND SUN ROSE BATH & SHOWER GEL.

Firstly, I absolutely love the packaging of this, looks very luxurious. It smells really lovely with a musky undertone. It’s a 100ml bottle.

2B8850F5-5A7A-4BF5-BC7B-87281D61D01B

This isn’t full size and it’s worth £7.33.

MALLY SHADOW STICK EXTRA.

This is an eyeshadow stick. Love the packaging, gives me a luxurious feel. It’s in the shade name Champagne. As the name suggests it is a beautiful champagne shade. Super creamy. Very well pigmented. It’s shimmery & would look stunning on the eyelids. Easy to blend too.

Its full size & worth £19.50.

https://www.qvcuk.com/Mally-Shadow-Stick-Extra.product.209898.html?sc=NAVLIST

NUDE BY NATURE FINISHING POWDER.

This is a translucent loose finishing powder. Love the packaging. Can be used to prep bare skin or perfect a finished look by setting your face products you’ve already used on your skin. It’s also fragrance-free.

JAMES READ SLEEP MASK TAN FACE.

I’ve had a few products from this brand before. It suits all skin types & tones. This is an anti-aging product. As the name suggests you use it at night & sleep with it on all night. It gives you a subtle glow. It’s a colourless, moisturising gel consistency. Good packaging. It’s a 25ml sized tube.

MARGARET DABBS FABULOUS HANDS HAND LOTION.

This is a luxurious treatment enriched with white water lily to boost the skins moisture levels & nutrient dense seaweed extract to product, regenerate & help reverse the signs of aging with the added scent of geranium & mandarin. I absolutely love the scent of this, really smells like my Mum’s favourite perfume, Calvin Klein Escape. It melts into your skin so quickly & gave my hands much needed hydration & moisture. It’s a 45ml tube.

E8FEC9F9-A1BE-46C6-A6A7-4D656126C647

This is a full size product worth £8.

ULTRASUN TINTED FACE SPF 30.

This would be perfect as a BB cream whilst giving your face the SPF factor. It’s a tinted moisturiser with the added extra of anti-ageing sun protection. It’s also water resistant which is great as you could be swimming but still your skin will remain protected. It adds a sheer, sun kissed colour to your complexion. It’s a 15ml sized tube. 

33B701B0-A9B5-4D82-8D53-4304CDD8553B

This isn’t a full size product and worth £3.90.

LAURA GELLER ICONIC NEW YORK COLLECTION BOWERY TRAVEL EYE PALETTE.

This is a trio eyeshadow palette. All purple shades which is fab as my favourite colour is purple. Love the packaging. It comes in a nice box & the pattern on the box continues onto the actual palette. It’s a super handy size which is perfect for travel. You get a mirror inside and 3 beautiful shades. 1 matte shade, 1 shimmer shade & 1 glitter shade. They swatch perfectly. Very well pigmented & blend very easily. You could do a subtle look with this palette and also a smoky, glam look.

This is full size and worth £11.63.

https://www.laurageller.com/iconic-new-york-eye-shadow-trio-bowery.html

INC.REDIBLE JELLY SHOT.

I already own 2 of these & really love them. Super hydrating & moisturising. Love the packaging & these lipbalms are really pretty with a little flower inside the lipbalm bullet. This lipbalm is enriched with avocado & vitamin E. It actually adapts to the PH of your lips which gives you a natural pink colour/tint.

This product is full size and worth £8.

https://m.feelunique.com/p/INCredible-Jelly-Shot-Lip-Quencher-4-4g

So that’s all 10 products which come in the box. 5 full size products & 5 non-full size products. The contents of the box are worth an overall cost of £99.91. So pretty much £100. This box retails for £20, WOW!! Highly recommend this box & will continue to re-purchase them.

Thank you so much for reading.

Until next time,

Michelle.

I’m Sorry!

Hi all.

This is just a quick post to let you all know that I’m taking a break from YouTube due to personal reasons which I’m not going to comment about. I’ve also put all of my YouTube videos on private. I will be back but at the moment it’s not possible. I’ll still be on there watching videos and commenting on videos but that’s it. I’ll return in the future. I’m so sorry about this but it needs to be done. Will miss making videos, uploading them & communicating with you all but I’ll be back. Hope you stick with me.

Due to this I’ve decided that I’ll write blog posts about the videos I would of recorded & uploaded.

I thank you for your support & patience.

Until next time,

Michelle.

Biggest Ever Makeup Project Pan/Shop My Stash.

Hi everyone.

I watch a lovely lady on YouTube who’s channel is called Hollife. She’s a beauty YouTuber and blogger. I was googling project pan ideas as I’ve seen a lot of YouTube videos of people doing project pans & thought they were interesting and wanted to try one for myself. I came across a blog post by Hollife called 160 project pan/shop my stash prompts. I listed all the prompts & had the crazy idea of getting 160 makeup products matching the prompts & putting them in a box. Each month I do shop my stash and had the idea that each month when selecting which products I will be using that month I will only be able to choose them from that box. I’m not necessarily wanting to use each product up or hitting pan, if there’s a product I’m really not getting on with after using it then I’ll also be decluttering it. I hope this makes sense, makes sense in my head but harder to write it down haha.

Where Have I Been? Update!

Hi all.

I want to apologise for being AWOL on my blog for about 3 months but I’ve simply not had a chance to write any blog posts.

So i’m going to update you on everything that’s been happening.

November last year I was diagnosed with Glandular Fever. This really made me quite unwell & required 3 hospital trips. It took me about 3 months till I started feeling better. It wiped me out completely especially being that I suffer with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

February was my birthday and I turned 36 (nearly 40, middle aged 😮) and i had a lovely day spent with my loved ones and was spoilt rotten.

This year I’ve really suffered with my chronic fatigue syndrome, being very fatigued but also Insomnia, both doesn’t make sense but I wasn’t falling asleep till around 4am, not good at all.

In March we went away to Mallorca, Spain for a week’s holiday, just the 4 of us and had a really lovely time. We did vlog everyday for our YouTube channel but i think I’ll do a separate post about it. Whilst we were there my sleeping pattern improved which was fab. Once we returned home my fatigue as got so much worse, no energy at all and always needing to sleep.

Recently, I’ve seen my surgeon who I’m under in regards to my Diverticular Disease. He said he was going to sort everything out which I was so pleased about, after 18 years of abdominal problems I feel like it’s all going to come to an end, FINALLY. He wanted me to have a CT scan as he thinks my problems are caused through me having surgical adhesions. Unfortunately I couldn’t have the CT scan done due to me being allergic to the contrast they need to use therefore I had an MRI scan of my abdomen & pelvis. I had to drink over a litre of powerful laxatives which in the past made me constantly go to the toilet, TMI I know but it had to be done. This time unfortunately it did nothing leaving me constipated and my abdomen being very distended, hard and painful for 4-5 days. I saw my surgeon just under 2 weeks ago for the results of the scan and a review and thankfully my scan didn’t show anything sinister. He said he’s going to operate on me keyhole and look in my abdomen and remove the surgical adhesions, he thinks I may have a hernia so will deal with that too & he’s also going to be taking a look at my stomach as when I eat I get very bad chest pain. He said if I need any bowel removing or something else bigger he will photograph it, wake me up, counsel me and then arrange for more major surgery to be done. He doesn’t want to put too much strain on my body by doing one massive operation.

The kids are on school holidays for Easter & it’s currently Easter Sunday as I’m writing this so Happy Easter 🐣 to you all, hope you enjoy it.

I want to write a blog post which is the reason I’m on my blog but thought I needed to give you an update first. I failed with my advent calendar posts but i may do an overall post so you know if the advent calendars were worth it & so it gives you an idea what to buy this year as after all, advent calendars will probably be back on sale in about 5 months time, this year has flown by already.

Anyway, I’m going to end this post here as as per usual I’ve wrote an essay, lol, but wanted to give you an update. Hope your all well too.

As always, thank you so much for reading.

Until next time,

Michelle.
