Summer Sparkle

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Since you have had a lot of beauty related posts of late and I have quite a few lined up, I thought I would have a bit of a life post on SprinkleofGlitter today.

With the sunny season in full swing, here is what Baby Glitter and I have been up to:


Alfresco lunches. I must admit, these sound a lot more romantic than they are! Wasp sandwich anyone?


Impromptu naps. Baby Glitter is like a sloth and can sleep anyway, including my friend's bed. She generally only has one snooze a day now and a solids night sleep (someone must be smiling down on me because I can't tell you how much I hated having no sleep!!). I just thought this picture was too cute to leave out. I love it when she sleeps because this is my quiet time to get things done around the house. I'm a firm believer in 'Tidy Home, Tidy Mind'.


Playing with toys. Now that she is three months old, she is really starting to play properly- grabbing, pulling, hitting are all mastered skills and so we can be really interactive with her. I bought the above toys from the Early Learning Centre a while back and she loves watching them wizz about. To be honest, I don't mind it either, haha!

I keep the cubes in her cot so that when she wakes up, she can have a little playtime which seems to go down well. Mostly she just tries to chew the corners, but that's good enough for me!

Can you see the bubbles? I take them on walks to Abington Park (a lovely big park with swings, ponds, a bandstand, a cafe etc) and blow them for her but she hasn't quite fathomed them out yet. We'll get there.


Playing with new makeup. This 72 Colour Palette is from KKCentre which is a fabby little website that sells all the huge eyeshadow palettes which I normally buy from eBay. They are extremely bargainous and ideal if you are starting out your collection. I think I'll have to make a video on this and my other giant palette. Would this float your boat?


And of course, my other baby, Mindycat. Mindy spends most of her time sunbathing on the patio during Summer, so I don't get many fluffy cuddles. The poor dear's getting on a bit nowadays (she's 13) but I really hope she stays in good health for a few years yet.

I've also been spending a lot of my time at Fanx HQ, running the Fanx Facebook Page and making videos for the YouTube Channel. Allssssoooooo, I have been working on a Top Secret project with Zoe (of Zoella- did you see all our videos together?) that is set to be very exciting indeed!! Eeeee!

So as you can see, I'm one busy lady!

What have you been up to this Summer?

Toodlepip!

  11. Your photos are so lovely Louise, I would love to know what type of camera you use?
    That 72 Color Palette looks fab, are those blushes on the bottom? That purple-pink color would look lovely with your skin tone!
    Little Mindy seems to REALLY love that patio, probably because it's cold against her fur when it's quite hot out!

    I'm super excited to see what this Secret Project with Zoe is, you two put such a smile on my face!

  19. How exciting! Your baby looks so cute (: I've been wanting to buy some palettes so I'll check out the one you posted! I'm new with blogger so I haven't seen all your blogs, do you have any talking about the eBay palettes? I really want to buy some because everybody says they're the same manufacturers as Coastal Scents/ BH Cosmetics. But, I'll try to look on your blog for more info. I can't wait to be more updated on you & Baby Glitter :D

    I have a baby cousin that is five-months-old, he is cute and never stops smiling. All he wants to do is try and stand up and shout and talk! But, obviously, he cant yet!
