MsRetroDesigns – Jewellery & More

For everyone that has been following me for a while by now you know I dabble in multiple things but have a few passions, one of them been my jewellery brand MsRetroDesigns. It was started after my youngest child was born and is still going strong. I make all the jewellery myself and quite a few of the items tend to be one-offs. The Breastfeeding Bracelets come in a range of different beads so there is something for everyone as well as my Alice in Wonderland themed wrap bracelets and much more.

I’ll soon be adding a section to my website to allow you to browse and shop these items but until then I’m happy to announce you are now able to purchase through my Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/msretrodesigns/

Beauty From Within

Its a been almost a year maybe just under since my last post and a lot has happened since then. As you will all remember I got married last October and what me and Mr.Retro found out not long after was we were expecting our 3rd child. So the last year has been mostly filled with growing bigger, clothes not fitting and finding time for sleep was far more important than putting my make up on. I guess that sounds bad loving my make up as much as I do but thats what pregnancy did to me.

Since our little boy was born in June I have been trying to lose the weight I gained during pregnancy, I managed to slim down for my wedding but getting the weight off this time seems to be harder. It took my wedding to motivate me last time and Id had two pregnancies before that so the last couple of weeks I have been trying to decide what are the best things for me. Fitting exercise around 3 very busy kids and normal day to day life is very tough. The best thing to do I’ve found (which sounds so cliche) is drink water whenever you can, exercise whenever you can, don’t make working out a chore (Zumba is Great fun), eating loads of fruit and veg and radiate confidence (even if your faking it).

Which leads me to the title of this post, I never quite understood the phrase “Beauty From Within” when I was younger, in my teens it was simple black or white you were either pretty or you were not. When you enter your late teens to early 20s this is when most people will basically stand up to the world and say this is me either like it or go away. Now I’m in my late 20s I think I’m finally understanding what it means. Its not all about the make up you wear, everybody has body hang ups even the people you think are perfect have things they dislike about themselves. Its that little bit of concealer, red lippy, favourite top or skirt that can make us feel beautiful and when we feel beautiful we look beautiful. For any Castle fans, Martha (Castles Mum) got it spot on, everyone sees something wrong with their body be it a wobbly belly or flat bum and we spend the rest of our lives trying to find that happiness with ourselves we had as a child, the age of innocence that all it took was a plastic tiara and a tutu (or princess dress) to feel beautiful.

 

What works for you?, What’s that one thing that makes you feel beautiful no matter what?
