Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

What an exciting week it’s been here at Confetti & Curves HQ as Emma’s class successfully pulled of their school musical drama (in a crazy 9 days!!), my contract at work being extended into 2017 and finally drafting up plans for my new beauty room. Considering that my hubby has ever so kindly re-shuffled our bedroom furniture to accommodate (countless times I should add) we’ve finally come to the conclusion that sprucing up the barely used guest room is our only option. What’s the point of a room sitting unused when it could be filled to the brim the make-up, ring lamps and blogger gadgets right? So no doubt over the next few days I’ll be scouring the mood boards of Pinterest for some great ideas on making it extra pretty, if you ladies have any great recommendations or Pinterest links for inspiration then do let me know in the comments below.

But before I invade your screens with what’s been happening on Confetti & Curves this week, I just want to give a rather smushy shout out to my super supportive hubby, Steve. I’m sure some of you have spotted me dropping him into our virtual convo’s from time to time, however he’s a huge driving force behind my blog.  Always super encouraging, thoughtful and forever seeing the potential in people. Needless to say, he’s a pretty special guy & admittedly I’d be lost without him. So if you’re reading this Steve, happy valentines… my flowers & card are beyond beautiful. Thank you – for everything ❤

Wishing each and every one of you guys a fabulous Valentines. Whether you’re single or taken, who cares?! Bottom line is you’re awesome 😉 Now grab that yummy Sunday cuppa and prepare yourself for a catch up chums…
