Blogging Chat – WingedMamaHood


It’s Lau. And today is another Blogging Chat, it is a series where me and another blogger talk about anything and everything and post it here.

Today’s guest is WingedMamaHood. She is a really cool blogger who blogs about her life as a mum and occasionally blogs about really helpful posts. Her links are at the bottom of the post.

Without further or do, let’s begin.

Me: How long have you been blogging for?

Joanne: Urm it’s coming up to 6 months now!

Me: So you started at the start of the year. Was it like a resolution?

Joanne: I guess so! I always wanted to start a blog but I never actually gave myself that last push to pluck up the courage. Well.. I did eventually because here I am!

Me: Which now you’re doing so well with your blog. And especially because you have two children to look after, it takes up a lot of time.

Joanne:Yes! I’ve started making money already which I am beyond grateful for. It’s extremely hard work trying to cram everything into what seems like a 3 hour long day but I’m making it happen💪🏼

Me: Are you on a website or do your own your website? I’m on WordPress I applied for WordAds (Where you get paid for blogging) And I still haven’t got accepted. It’s been months.

Joanne:I started on WordPress! I have recently moved to my own domain. I myself haven’t looked into WordAds but that may be something I’ll have a research about!

Me: I kind of think that WordAds isn’t really worth the waiting. How did you get started on your own domain?

Joanne: I went through the WordPress app itself! I think it’s siteground which I’m with now if I remember correctly.

Me: I’ll look into it. It’s very difficult to start earning money.

Joanne: I couldn’t agree more! The only paid work I’ve done so far is with brands. I’ve managed to earn myself over £100 in the last 2 day compared to £0 in the first 6 months. I guess it’s all hit and miss when it comes to blogging

Me: It is, brands want popular blogs with 1000’s followers that has DA of 40+. I haven’t got paid work with a brand yet.

Joanne: Yes you’re right indeed they do! Personally I don’t have the biggest social media following and I average at around 3k monthly views. Brands are still willing to work with you if you work out a plan between yourself and them.

Me: I’d be very up for that if a brand emailed me back. I apply for many opportunities everyday, i never really get a response back.
I have this one email saying if i want free traffic.

Joanne: Don’t give up! You could find that In a months time 15 opportunity’s come your way in a single week.

Me: That’s the dream, I’m going to keep doing what I do. It’s all so confusing the brand thing.

Joanne: It most definitely is.

Me: I think I will end this post here. Thank you so much.


Thank you so much to Joanne for doing this post, check out her links.

2 Colourful Eyelooks


It’s Lau. And today I wanted to do another few eye looks for you.

I hope you enjoy.

1. Colourful Eyeliner

This is a reallt cool rainbow eyeliner that goes along my waterline too. It’s very easy and if you wanted to do a bit of an extra touch then add glitter to the winged eyeliner..


2. Blue Smokey Eye.

I really like blue smokey eyes, with deep brown eyes, it looks really good. Adding a shiny deep blue to the lid would really make the look even better.

And that’s all for this post. Thank you so much. I hope you enjoyed.

I will see you all tomorrow!

Trial Makeup/Hair/Outfit For an Event


It’s Lau. And in around 2 weeks I have an event that I’m a little excited for. My teacher nominated me for an award for excellence in my area of study, at first I thought it was a mistake but I saw my teacher yesterday and she confirmed to me that it isn’t.

So, today I want to just play with outfit choices, makeup, hair..ect. So I’m not panicking when the day comes.

I hope you enjoy this post and whatever choices I have chosen.

I wanted to do quite a dramatic eye look and this is what I came up with.

I think it looks good, its not as dramatic as I was looking for but still quite good.

And the hair. I wanted to go for something sleek and this is what I came up with.

It doesn’t look bad, I could definitely improve but it’s not a bad first attempt.

Here is the outfit. It’s a low v-neck top without sleeves, I want to to also pair it with black skinny jeans. The dress is smart but not formal so I thought it fitted perfectly.

And that’s it for this post. Thank you very much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post.

I will see you all tomorrow!

How To : Apply Fake Eyelashes


It’s Lau. And today I am going to show you how to apply fake eyelashes. At one point or another everyone has struggled with putting on eyelashes, only last year did I learn how to apply them.

I want to give you some tips and tricks on how to apply them.

How To Apply Fake Eyelashes

So, when it comes to eyelashes, there are many different styles. As you dive into it more you’ll find out what suit’s your eye shape.

Start of with cheap eyelashes

There’s nothing worse then starting off with fake eyelashes and you ruin a great pair. In Superdrug, there are fake eyelashes for £1 or £2. These are good to start off with.

Cut it to your eye shape

The lashes are always too big, cut them so that they don’t start poking your eye in the middle of the day.

Good eyelash glue

If you don’t have a good eyelash glue, it will never stick. Duo lash glue is good and the Superdrug own brand one is too.

Don’t move it around too much.

When you’re putting on the lash, the worst thing you can do is move it around. Wait until the glue is tacky and it will make your life a whole lot earlier.

Squeeze your real with your fake

Always mush together your lashes with the false ones. It will make a seemless blend.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My Eyelashes are pin straight. How do I get them to blend into my falses?

The answer is a little easier then you think. My sister has pin straight lashes, they won’t curl or do anything really so the trick I found when doing her makeup is put them on the lashes. If you can’t blend your lashes into your the fake, blend the fake into the lashes. That way it’s seemless.

2. What brand of eyelashes would you recommend?

Eylure is a really good brand, particularly these ones. I love these ones.

I think I will this post here. Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post.

Photography Challenge


It’s Lau. And today I wanted a bit of a challenge and I wanted to get into a bit of photography.

I challenge myself to go put into my back garden and photograph as much nature as possible in 10 minutes.

And that’s what I did. Here you go.

I used my phone and I just went around photographing things. It was fun, because my dog came with me because she likes to explore. Overall, it was successful and I enjoyed it.

I urge any of you to do this challenge and see what photos you come out with.

Thank you very much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post.

I will see you all tomorrow!
