NEW Nude matte Lipsticks

So unbelievably excited to share this with you all 😍

Everyone loves a nude lip, especially for an all day look or to let your eyes stand out in your make-up……let me introduce you to these amazing new colours on offer this month only. 

The new colours range from browns, all the way to pink. Simple colours for everyday use. The Splash lipsticks are so creamy and gorgeous. To get the most wear out of them, let them dry completely on your lips for about 30 mins without drinking for that ultimate staying power! 


My faves are susceptable and sumptuous πŸ’– 

These amazing colours are a part of our amazing customer kudos this month are are exclusive colours – this means we have no idea if the colours are going to be staying after this month is out. 

To check out the offer visit www.sparklejambeauty.co.uk

I also have a VIP group with amazing offers and I will also be going live in there to show off the new colours. I would love to see some new faces in there https://www.facebook.com/groups/211030122588260/

Let me know which ones are your faves!!

Precious Time

In the UK, Mother’s day was on the 26th March – yesterday. This was only my second mothers day and it made me think about alot.

Why I hear you ask? 

In our local news, we where told of a 4 yr old girl who lost her life in an accident. I couldn’t stop thinking about the little girls family, in particular her mother. I could never imagine loosing a child the day before Mother’s Day. No parent should ever say goodbye to their child, especially that young. 

For me, it put alot into perspective. I can’t even imagine how I would react to this situation. Every minute of everyday is precious and it made me want to spend  even more time with my beautiful daughter. 

I made me realise the smallest thing like reading her a story to taking her on day trips out, everything counts towards making memories. The memories are what no one can take away from you, they stay with you forever. 

Not only that, it’s also as important to her as it is for me. I get that she won’t understand as she is so young, but memories shape the person you become.

Mother’s Day is so precious. There are so many people who are not able to spend the day with their mother due to death, illness, or other circumstances…..but we don’t really think of the mums who can’t spend the day with their kids for the same reasons. 

I will be cuddling my baby that little bit harder for those mums who ate not able to. Life is so precious 💖

#WeekendCoffeeShare: 22.1.2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster.

If we where having coffee today, I would offer you whatever you like from our Tassimo hot drink range: latte, hot chocolate, americano or a nice cup of tea.

So how has your week been? I have had a lovely week (for once!) I had the whole week off work so was planning on having a big sort out as the house still isn’t completely sorted, even though we moved in a year ago!

Tuesday was my birthday!! Happy birthday to me!! I was the big 33…..eek!! I spent the day with my lovely 1 year old, having some quality mother/daughter time. As I am doing slimming world, there was no birthday cake, so unfortunately I can’t offer you a slice 😦

For those of you who don’t know, I run my own online beauty business. To help me grow, I have begun self development. I have realised its essential in growing your business successfully. Videos is something I used to struggle with, however I was super proud of myself as I managed to do 2 LIVE videos…..yes thats right, LIVE! I have no idea what happened, but I found it super easy and more like I was talking to friends. Fingers crossed this will be the start of something amazing and get me to where I need to be ❀

I thoroughly enjoyed my week off work and can’t wait for the next!

So how was your week?

Don’t forget toΒ visit my fellow bloggersΒ for a cuppa and a catch up!

Lots of love

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster.

If we where having coffee today, I would invite you into our home and insist you have a nice Tassimo coffee, we have americano and latte available or a lovely Cadburys hot chocolate (with mashmallows of course). Failing that we have good old english tea.

How have you been getting on this week? I have been trying to sort out my brand new office space. You see, I have my own business and I have decided that now is the time to get serious and treat it as a business rather than just a hobby. We have had some exciting news regarding the future of 2018 and I am so excited about it. Can not wait until I can share my news with you πŸ™‚ Check out my new office space…its a work in progress but completely better than working from the couch.

I don’t know about you, but I am finally starting to feel like I am getting back into the swing of things after Christmas. All the sweets, biscuits and crisps are finally starting to disappear. For me this ears one thing, back on track for slimming world!!

I joined Slimming World last year at the end of May, so one of my goals for the year is to get back to my normal weight by my anniversary. So far I have lost 1 1/2 stone and I have that to loose. So I’m halfway. Horray!

Thankyou so much for coming for coffee today and I am looking forward to hearing about what you have all be upto. Until next time!

Bring It On 2017

So we are finally in 2017 🎉

I have made a few goals for this year; business, lifestyle and personal life. Big and small…all of which mean something to me in some shape or form.

My main one is my business – Sparkle Jam Beauty. I want to make it a huge success and get my name out there. Changing women’s life’s all over the world is really what made me take the decision to treat my business as a business. 

Before now I loved the make-up and was interested in selling but now I’m ready to do it properly. To me, it’s not just about selling. It’s all about the foundation for me. The Younique Foundation raises money for women and children who have suffered abuse. We have a retreat which offers help and support for all those affected – pretty amazing right!

Can not wait to see where 2017 takes me! I’m ready for you, let’s kick some ***

Slimming World Award

Woo! !

I did it! I reached my 1 1/2 stone award today πŸ™‚

I’ve been working hard these past few weeks trying to get it. I found it fairly easy though the past few weeks, what with making soups and stews in this cold weather. I think it’s definitely easier loosing weight in the winter….fingers crossed it won’t take long to get my 2 stone award πŸ™‚ 

Milestones

So its been a while since I have updated you on my gorgeous princess. She is now 11 months old….yes its flown by right?!

She is now sitting, crawling around EVERYWHERE!, and trying to stand up! Mummy is in trouble haha!

She has just been to her health and development check and is doing perfect.

I know I am a new mum but one thing I have noticed is people tend to compare what milestones their child is upto. The standard ‘mine is doing this and that’ and when your baby isn’t, you get THE LOOK, that makes you feel like you are a bad parent.

Newsflash mums and dads, you are doing a perfect job! Every child reaches the milestones at different times. Just because yours is standing and the next child is crawling, doesn’t mean that you are doing a better job. 

If anything, it’s you that’s showing your kids it’s normal to compare yourself against other people. Surely we live in a society where it is acceptable to BE YOU no matter what the next person is doing. We as parents are teaching our kids this behaviour is acceptable, when it’s not. They learn from us so it’s upto us to break that barrier society puts up of what is ‘the norm’. 

We are so proud of everything our princess has achieved so far and can’t wait to see what’s next for her. It’s exciting to watch her grow into the lovely little girl she is becoming 💖
