It's a Tasha thing and The Finer Things In Life

Hi everyone,

So you're probably wondering by the title what's going on. Well myself and Dion from The Finer Things In Life ( have decided to do a monthly collaboration.

For now this will happen on the first Friday of every month.

We'd love you guys to get behind us and tell us what you would like to see on these Friday posts, after all these are for you. 

We have thought of the types of posts we would like to do for you which would be advice posts where you send in your questions and we answer them. This could be anything from relationship advice, uni/college/school problems and advice and metal health or physical health problems. The topic will be completely down to you. Think of us as agony aunts.

We will also include posts to do with make-up, beauty and fashion. So if your stuck with finding the perfect lipstick/lipgloss for the date night you're going on, need to know our skincare faves that make us feel great or want advice on what outfit we'd choose for that all important interview, we'll help by answering your questions!

You can always add your name on at the end if you'd like to be named.
This starts tomorrow! We've chosen the first post which is the TMI tag to get to know us that little bit more with well... Too much information!

We look forward to seeing your questions and comments.

Itsatashathing: Baby girl names I like

Hi everyone,

So as I posted on Twitter about not knowing what to call our baby girl, I thought of make a post on the names I like. These are names that I like but my boyfriend doesn't necessarily like or have agreed on them.

These are in no particular order:

1. Darcie/Darcey (I've placed this first because I do really like this one)

2. Phoebe (this ones second because  my boyfriend doesn't like Darcie but can kind of agree on Phoebe)

3. Amelia

4. Elouise

5. Amelie

6. Casey

7. Esmé

8. Madison

9. Sienna

10. Jasmine

Here she is:

If you can think of a name for her or have favourite baby girl names yourself pop them in the comments.

Itsatashathing: Would you rather beauty tag

Hi everyone,

I thought I'd do another tag today. I love doing these and I always love to read them, so here goes.

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

A: I think I would rather go out with nice hair and no make-up. I can never get my hair right so if this was the one opportunity I'd have to have perfect hair, I'd take it.

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

A: I think have my all my eyelashes fall out. I'd just where fake ones to make up for not having them.

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?

A: I'd pick MAC as we don't have Sephora in the UK. 

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80's perm?

A: I think I'd go for 80's perm as I've always wanted curly hair.

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?

A: This is difficult! I'm just going to go with overdone blush. I don't know why but I think I'd rather that than a obvious foundation line.

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

A: I'm going to go MC Hammer pants to save everyone from my translucent legs.

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can't be covered?

A: I think I'd rather the weird tan lines. I don't really fake tan so it's hard for me to choose. 

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?

A: Bad haircut. I've never coloured my hair before so I'd rather go with the haircut.

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?

A: Probably the hardest question in this tag. I'm going to go with Twitter. I'd still have Facebook so that makes up for that but nothing really makes up for YouTube.

10. Would you rather give up using make-up brushes or mascara? 

A: I'm going to go with giving up using make-up brushes. I don't think I could live without using mascara.

Hope you enjoyed reading this. If you have a go yourself leave a link below so I can have a read of what you would rather.

Itsatashathing: July in pictures

Hi everyone,

I'm going to start doing this every month now starting with July. So here is my July in pictures.

6th July: I took a little blast to the past when I found my old phone and on it had all my old school pictures. This particular picture is of a chocolate Yule log I made in year 11. I was 15 years old at this time and had never attempted this before. However, for my first attempt at a Yule log I don't think it went to bad. I achieved an A* for my work. I think my teacher was actually quite shocked at what I had produced.

14th July: we took a bumpie! A little more had sprouted at 19 weeks...

18th July: ...until 20 weeks came! I had to put this dress on as it was so hot and didn't know what to do with myself. We really noticed my bump then.

22nd July: Scan day! Nerves and excitement on this day. Nervous because we wanted to know how things where going and excited to find out what we were having. We found it we are having a little girl and she is perfectly well.

30th July: Excuse this picture of me (I have my boyfriends hoodie on and no make up on, not a good look for me). We went to visit my family down where I come from. My Dad took my grandma, my boyfriend and I out to a little bespoke garden centre near to where they live and treated us to a hot chocolate (and a hot brownie). We found this bear (which believe it or not I think is for sale) which had a 'take a selfie on my paw' sign next to him. I believe you could enter a competition if you did this.

Anyway that's all the photos I had for July. July was a good month, now let's see what the rest of August brings.

Itsatashathing: Parenting goals

Hi everyone,

So when your pregnant I guess everyone starts planning ahead for when their child gets older. We've been doing this a lot recently saying what we will and won't do.

I thought I'd make a list of the things we've said and see if we stick to them.

1. Sweet allowance! When our little girl gets to about 4/5 I want them to have something nice but not to over indulge in sweets. What we've said is when we go to do our shopping on a Friday or Saturday they can have £1. It's up to then what they want to do with the £1. If they want to use it wisely and but 5 packs for £1 or buy 1 thing for the pound that's their decision. Whatever they buy will be given in small allowances throughout the week.

2. No squash! We're going to try and stay with just milk and water for as long as possible. When she starts school we may introduce squash but only a very weak amount.

3. If we say no we mean no! Easy to say but not so easy to do. If we say no to having something that's how it stays.

4. Following through on discipline. Again if we say no tele, we mean no tele. I believe its all to easy to say these things and go back on them. To me a child is then going to think 'oh mummy and daddy don't mean that when they say it, I can do it again next time.' That's not what we want. We don't want to be strict but there's boundaries.

5. Pocket money! Sort of like the sweet thing but I believe it should be earned. Nothing comes for free in life and that to me is a valuable life lesson. By this I don't mean making a 4 year old sweep and mop the floors. It's just simple things like if they get their toys out, they need to pack them away. 

That's what we have put together and I hope we can stick to this. Did you think of things like this and didn't go to plan? Or, did you think of things and stuck to them through the tough times? Let me know in the comments!
