Last October, my family and I decided to go to Aruba over the October half term break. It was beyond incredible and I promised so many of you I would write about it… so here goes! First off, why Aruba? And where is it??

Last night, I co-hosted an event full of busy mum’s who were all looking for a makeover with new products to try, as well as learning some lifelong makeup tips. Along with celebrity makeup artist Sarah Edwards-Knight, who is working on this season’s X Factor (and yes she did sort out Scarlett’s eyebrows) we opened up bottles of prosecco and all got stuck in with our make up tutorial.
