L'oreal Infallible Matte

This is my favourite foundation at the moment, I have oily skin and it's perfect for me. It lasts a really long time. I wouldn't say it lasts the 24 hours stated, but I've yet to found one that actually lasts as it's believed too. There's a normal version of this foundation which i believe is a liquid but i haven't tried it as i know it wouldn't be suitable for my skin type.
It's around 8 pound either from super drug or boots. and has around 6 shade colours. 
I use the shade 11- vanilla and i think it's a good match, i have quite pale skin so struggle with any foundation looking orange.
The range also has a powder, which i love! it's my all time no.1 now, i wouldn't buy anything different again. I use 123 warm vanilla in that. I think it's really effective, and lasts a long time. I only normally apply once a day and its lasts all day, depending on what activities i'm doing i might need a touch up. It doesn't cling to any dry spots on my face, and is soft to the face. Amazing value for money, it lasts ages and is around 5 pound!

I've always opening admitted i'm a lazy person, I just have one of those personalities where i'm lazy when it comes to literally anything and everything. Most days I don't wear make up, do my hair even put a pair of jeans on. I'm a lot ore comfortable in my jogging bottoms.
When it comes to house hold things, like cleaning, washing cooking; but now i need a different type of motivation. 
I NEED to lose a serious amount of weight. I've always been a snacker, it's not so much the amount of food I eat, its the junk I eat. since becoming a mummy i cant seem to stop eating, if any of you have been pregnant before, you know what i mean. You get into pregnancy mode thinking you can eat what you want, and then when the baby arrives, you're still in that mind set. It's really hard to think differently.
I've always been larger than average but now its a real problem. 
Any tips or tricks to try and help me stop bingeing every day?!

Before I had my son I was a huge fan of dry shampoo, but now sadly it doesn't matter if I have clean hair or not most of the time, but in situations where I have no time ( which is all the time!! ) I find myself without dry shampoo; and my friend suggested to me one day - also a mum of two, to try baby powder.
I thought to myself, ' why not ' and now it's my holy grail, its perfect for the quick days where you don't have time to wash your hair straight away. I use it the night before so its not so white and obvious and the smell isn't so strong, even though there are worst things in the world you could smell of. The next day is just as effective just takes a bit more work to remove the whiteness.  It soaks up all the oil and makes your hair look silky soft again.
Try it out.It's cheaper then dry shampoo and has multiple uses, which is all about what i'm for to save a pound or two where i can.
