Lush, Its Raining Men:





Ive heard and seen a lot of reviews and hype of you tube and also on a number of blogs and thought i would give it a go. The first thing i thought when smelling this was 'Oh my!!!' and purchased it straight away. You can use this as a shower gel and a shampoo. I do have to say that as a shampoo it didn't really amaze me. It actually left my hair feeling quite greasy, but it did smell lovely!! As a shower gel it really is incredible, smells so good and you can smell it on your body for the whole day :) really worth the price. I would recommend this as a great shower gel!!!As i like it that much.....i am going to purchase another bottle as it is limited edition!!! Price £7.95



Mac Paint Pot (Painterly):



I purchased this from Mac as i wanted a new eye base/primer. You can use this as an eye colour on its own as well if you like. It is very highly pigmented and have found that it doesn't crease (on my eyes anyway). When you apply this it has a very creamy feel, but drys to show a good coverage.I only use this as a eye base/primer and never as a colour on its own. It does help my shadow to stay on all day/all night. It is great when using neutral or bright shadow colours!! Nothing bad to say about this product at all. Some people might say the price is a bit much at £13.50 (UK) ? What do you think?



K-Palete 24 Hour Eyeliner:





(This product i actually purchased from ebay not in London)

When i visited Japan a few years ago, i purchased an eyeliner just like this. When i found one on ebay i thought i have to try that again!!! I cant remember how much i paid for this product but i think around £10 including postage. The applicator is brilliant as the very tip is so thin it is great to get right into the corner of the eye and also creates a nice flick. K-Palette have called this a 24 hour eyeliner and some know it as the 'Tattoo eyeliner'.  I have used this non stop for about a month now and have actually found that on some days it does rub off. This has only happened i would say three or four times in a month which isnt bad, and i do believe this happened because it didnt agree with the shadow i was wearing. If you are in Japan or are visiting or even find this on ebay, i would say get it if you need a new eyeliner as it is great!! The only downside is that we live in the uk and will have to wait for it to arrive :( To sum up, this eyeliner is always in my bag ! A make up bag staple for me




Rimmel quad:(State of Grace)





I have to admit.... i purchased this product purely from watching the advert on television. I instantly thought wow i have to have that! I went to boots the next day and it cost me £6.99. The shadows are really silky to the touch and are really nice colours that do compliment each other greatly. When applying the shadows in this quad i had to use the applicators provided. When using my Mac eyeshadow brush, the shadow just didnt pick up. The brush had nothing on it :s so i used the sponge ones that came free. When i used the sponge applicators the shadows went on very nice and smooth. I found that i had to go over the shadow as a second coat as the colour was not bright enough. when i completed the look that is shown on the back of this quad it did look really nice and i wore it a few times. I wouldn't say i love this product.....but i will say that i really like the colours. I will leave it up to you whether to try this or not. 


Hope you liked this mini haul. More to come soon :)

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
