Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

I fricken LOVE 3 day weekends. That extra day lends itself so unbelievably useful as I managed to get my ‘To Do’ list nailed on Friday leaving an ENTIRE weekend to catching up on whatever I please. The house was cleaned from top to bottom (majoritively thanks to the hubby) sidenote: anyone else love the sound of teeny stones getting sucked up the hoover?! I know, I’m a tad on the bizarre side – I’m blaming it on too much sun ๐Ÿ˜‰

Of course most of yesterday was spent with Em’s, playing around with new nail art equipment, testing a few new cosmetic goodies (reviews coming soon!!) and a cosy night in with hubby…ย what better way to spend a Saturday evening! *happy sigh*

Of course today is spent brushing up on a few blog post, writing projects and most likely lounging around the house sipping on cold drinks and fanning myself with beauty magazines. Sounds divine? It sure is ๐Ÿ˜€ What’s your plans for today? Don’t forget to let me know in the comments below – and feel free to leave a link to any blog posts you’d like us to check out too. As always here’s a quick recap of what’s been happening this week on Confetti & Curves….

The Me Spree – Bourjois Summer Essentials

Bourjois Summer Essentials

After a recent wander around my local Superdrug store I managed to make my way home with a few new beauty goodies that I can’t wait to try out! Of course I’m also rather taken by my freebie gift… and you could get your hands on one too. Check out the post for more info ๐Ÿ™‚


The Dance Festival

The Dance Festival

This week’s upload was a little bit different to my usual beauty chatter as I showcased a few little clips from Emma’s Irish Dancing festival last weekend. Being her 1st she’d no idea what to expect but she danced her little heart out, won herself 2 trophies and 4 medals AND got an exclusive performance from her Lord of The Dance adjudicator… amazing!

  1. Your weekend sounds like bliss Karen! I spent my Saturday with an awful migraine and unable to keep anything down for most of the day ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I know what you mean about little stones getting vacuumed up, everything instantly feels cleaner lol! I finally got around to placing my Makeup Revolution order and it arrived last week. I picked up the Iconic 2 as you suggested and a few other bits as well:

    • Awwwh Chanell you poor wee thing ๐Ÿ˜ฆ They are AWFUL. I used to suffer with them really bad too (very rarely do now) as my epilepsy is seemingly gone, but wow I can sympathise with your pain. I’ve never been physically sick with one so I dread to think how awful you must have been!!! Are you feeling much better now?? I truly hope so!
      Ohhh my gosh you did?!?! I cannot wait to see what you got – thank you SO much for sending the link as there is so many blogs in my newsfeed I miss so much these days ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Cannot WAIT to check it out *hugs* XXXXXX

      • I don’t know whether I felt sick because of the migraine or for some other reason. I used to get headaches all the time and sometimes like Saturday I get a really bad one. I am feeling much better now thank you, I started to improve on Saturday night ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re welcome for the link xx

      • Awwh maybe it was a wee bug?! Either way good to hear you’re feeling much better – nothing worse than spending a weekend ill and with headaches. If they continue you should really go get them checked out. Danger signs are waking up with headaches huni, if that’s happening it’s a warning something’s not right (according to my GP anyways!!) Fingers crossed it’s all behind you now โค XXXX

      • I had a few appointments with doctors and a specialist years ago but they were none the wiser. If I start getting them more regularly again I will definitely have to see someone x


  2. It sounds like you have had a lovely weekend Karen! Chilling on a boat watching the sunset sounds perfect! I have had a pretty chilled weekend too, writing posts doing a bit of shopping and then went for a walk by the river today! I love chilled Sundays ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    • Oooh a bit of shopping?! Did you buy anything nice huni? I love a walk, particularly near flowing water as I find it so calming Rachel, even if it’s only a little stream the trickling is just so therapeutic. Maybe that’s why I love living by the sea ๐Ÿ˜€ Glad you had a really chilled day, makes a lovely end to the weekend โค XXXXX

      • Mainly window shopping haha! Trying to save save save! Ah yeah it’s so peaceful and relaxing! I’d love to live by the sea! I have to travel a good 40 mins to 1 hour to the nearest seaside! Exactly, now ready to tackle the week ahead! Hope you have a good one! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      • Ahhh like me at the moment then Rachel!!! Makes two of us huni lol Oh gee really?! I don’t think there’s anywhere in Ireland where we’d have to travel that long as we’re surrounded by water lol Maybe you’ll get a trip to the beach this summer ๐Ÿ™‚ Make a day of it!!!
        awwh thank you lovely – hope you have a brill one too โค *hugs* XXXX

  3. A three day weekend! And you (and your hubby) got things done! Nice!

    I haven’t done anything this weekend. It was beautiful. My biggest achievements this weekend were making potato salad (yesterday), making pizza (today) and having a face mask (yesterday). My husband and me spent most of the weekend binge-watching The 100 and The Blacklist. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Sounds like a fabulous weekend if you ask me ๐Ÿ™‚ Nothing better than literally just soaking up the time spent by chilling out!! Hope your potato salad was yummy… I love it, and Pizza too lol lol Of course a face mask is just the cherry on the cake for relaxing ๐Ÿ˜€ XXXXX
