The BritMums beauty round-up: Collecting the best BritMums beauty blog posts each month

beautyYou may or may not be aware that I am lucky enough to write for the BritMums Blog.

I'm still not entirely sure how it happened.  One minute I was sending a light hearted tweet to the BritMums team suggesting that, of all the great round-ups that they regularly publish, they didn't appear to do a monthly round-up of beauty-related blog posts.  As a parenting and beauty blogger I was interested in what other mums were blogging about on the beauty front.  Were they blogging on this subject? Or once you have children, does it really all turn to talk of nappies to the exclusion of skin care or hair fashions?

Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on whether I'm having a productive writing day, the response that came back was; "Great idea, we'll set you up to start it next month".  Hmmmmm. What had I gotten myself into?

My reaction was a simultaneous "oh, pants" and "brilliant!"  And today my third beauty round-up, Shedding the pounds, goes live on the BritMums blog.

I now have to remember to bookmark the great blog posts I come across that provide skincare, make-up, haircare or other beauty advice.  It's an added pressure, but the great advantage is that I'm discovering some great tips and making new friends.  I am so pleased that the Britmums team had faith in me as I'm really enjoying myself.  Thank you!

This month it's all about weight loss.  Enjoy it and let me know what you think and what sort of beauty posts you'd like me to look out for.

  1. Ooo I used to do the Newbie one at BritMums and I can thoroughly recommend opening up a 'sticky note' on your pooter and then adding links with a quick one liner about what the post is about - saved me soooo much time!

  2. I highly recomend Susie Amy's blusher and blogging...she does some brilliant posts on all things beauty and lots of it affordable too...

    1. I will check it out. Thanks for the tip. :-)

  3. OOH I'd LOVE my beauty posts included! I follow your RSS so I'll look out for the reminder!

    1. Great. I shall look forward to reading your posts! :-)
