Make up bag explosion #WickedWednesdays

I was on the road for work last week – twenty-four hours in London for an awards bash followed by a presentation the next day. This meant a proper ‘mummy night off’ with a posh do and a night of undisturbed sleep. Amazing!

Typically though, my make up bag decided to throw a spanner in the works. I arrived at the hotel late in the afternoon, checked into my wonderfully quiet room, opened my overnight bag, and found this…


Make up bag full of green eye shadow


A pot of loose Barry M eye shadow, that I must have had since my student days (note to self: bin it for hygiene reasons!), had unscrewed itself during my train journey.

What should have been a luxurious, toddler free hour getting myself ready for an evening out turned into a mission to make sure I didn’t end up looking like the Jolly Green Giant.

Best laid plans and all that!


I’m sharing this makeup disaster as part of the #WickedWednesdays linky from Brummymummyof2. It’s all about posting those less than perfect snaps that wouldn’t usually grace the pages of your blog but never-the-less make you smile. Here’s how you can join in.

Last time I shared Ne pas! Roues de l’autobus.
