I was introduced to the Little Brian paint sticks back in September 2018 when I attended the blogging conference BlogOnToys in Manchester. With a little lady that loves to get creative and crafty their mess free, versatile and super fun method of painting which was being exhibited appealed to me instantly! Infact they are still very much a favourite in our craft box and so I was very excited to be given the opportunity to try out the new Little Brian Art Face Paint Sticks which have recently been launched.
Hiya lovelies, I hope you all had a fab weekend. We had a rather chilled out one which was very much needed. My anxiety has been flaring up quite badly over the past few weeks so some down time was definitely welcomed. I thought I would pop up a little blog update post as I know up until recently I haven’t really been that active on here or on my socials really. I started up My Little Brushneen Blog over 2 years ago now! My first post was publised on the 9th of May 2017! I can’t quite believe how quickly that time has flown by. I had a quick scroll back through the posts and seeing how much little monkey has grown during that time is incredible. On here I share the ups and downs, struggles and triumphs, the smiles, the tears, adventures and day to day and I’m so glad I found the confidence from somewhere to share my little blog. After our miscarriage earlier this year I had to take a step back though and my return to writing was delayed. The longer I took the harder it became to find the motivation or the desire to post anything. I was unsure if I would share the news on here but I just didn’t feel like I could come back and start doing reviews or write about anything else without acknowledging what had happened. For me the need to talk about it was strong yet at the same time I just didn’t know how to approach it or how to start that post.
For weeks now I have been trying to figure out how to start this post, going over and over in my head how to write it the correct way, how to find and piece together the right words and debating whether this is something I should share at all. To be honest I’m still none the wiser. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, 1 in 4! It’s true i didn’t realise the extent of how taboo miscarriage is until my own. I want to help break the silence by sharing our story.
I certainly do love a good face mask! As well as being a great way to relax and unwind it’s also a superbly effective way to give your skin a boost of nourishment and to address any skin concerns you may have, a great edition to your skincare routine. Today’s post is a review of the Procoal London Marine Moisture Mask a Hydrating Charcoal Sheet Mask. Cruelty free, formulated in the UK and containing protective antioxidants it’s a product I was very keen to try.
Hello and a very, very happy New year to you all! I hope that 2018 was kind to you and whether you’re looking back on the last year with a smile or glad to see the back of it I hope you had lots of fun welcoming in the new year and I really hope that 2019 will bring you even more happiness, laughter love and fond memories.

Hello and happy Monday! It’s time for living arrows and this week I have a few photos to share which were taken yesterday afternoon during a trip to the park.

Hello all! Hope you’re well. I’m so pleased to be linking up with the lovely Donna from What the Redhead said for this week’s living arrows. I’m aiming to be posting more regularly again on the blog from now on and living arrows has always been one of my favourite linkys to participate in. Documenting and sharing those big and little moments that capture the magic of childhood is such a positive and wonderful thing to enjoy and look back on.
We have some home improvement plans in the pipeline which i’m so very excited about and can’t wait to get stuck into. We’re planning to start on little monkeys room which currently has a very pretty pastel pink feature wall which I still absolutely love. So the plan of action is to remove the animal and flower wall stickers we put up a good couple of years ago, touch up the paint and introduce some cream and gold touches throughout. She is still very into Frozen and princesses which we’ll add in with the bedding and accessories.
So woth that in mind on Saturday 1st of September we took a quick trip to B&Q to pick up a couple of things for the garden, check out if they had anything we could use for little ones bedroom and to get some home decor inspiration. That’s where this week’s photos were taken.
Freya loves to get out and about, even if it is just a flying visit to a DIY store which she managed to find so much fun in during the visit, isn’t it just fantastic how kids do that, find the fun in everything, make the most of it! Even if she did give us a bit of a run around at times she had a great time and so made it much more enjoyable for us aswell!
She loved exploring through the flowers, spotting all the different colours.
Pulling funny faces in the big mirrors.
She was also quite keen on rearranging some of the stock on the shelves to the floor which Daddy then had to put back.
After leaving the store we had lunch alfresco and then headed back home. It turned out to be such a lovely morning out.
