Washing my Make Up brushes

*I normally wash my brushes in my on suite but there was better lighting in the kitchen.

So this is a short post on how i clean my make up brushes. There are quite a few different ways i have seen people clean their brushes. Mine is a pretty bog standard way of cleaning my brushes. I use Mac brush cleaner but i am really interested in trying different ones, so i would love to know what you use!

As you can see i lay out some kitchen roll to lay the clean brushes on after washing them which i always do without fail as I'm a hygiene freak. 
  1. First of all i run the tap and get the water warm, not too hot that it burns your fingers. 
  2. I take one brush at a time and pop a bit of brush cleaner on the bristles.
  3. I run it gently through the bristles.
  4. Then i continue to rub in the cleaner but now i do so whilst holding the brush under the tap.
  5. I continue to do this until the water runs clean ( sometimes i have to repeat 2,3,4 depending on how dirty the brush is).
  6. I do this to every brush i have used.
  7. I lay them straight on the kitchen roll after cleaning them, and leave them to dry over night. Sometimes it takes a night and a day to fully dry.

Please let me know of any tips or advice that i could do to my brush cleaning routine :)
Sorry its a boring post, but its something that has to be done.



  1. With mine, I usually squirt a little bit of the brush cleaner onto a flannel and swirl my make up brushes into it before rinsing them under water. I tends to get all of the makeup out first time so it might save on your brush cleaner a bit! The ELF Daily Brush Cleaner does just as good a job as MAC Brush Cleaner, I swapped over about six months ago and the only difference I see is the price!
    Also, I put mine either in the airing cupboard or by an open window to dry. It makes them dry a bit quicker :D

    Mollie xo

    1. Thanks for your suggestions love :) Really helpful.
      I actually purchased the ELF brush cleanser a while ago but my cap broke so i couldn't use it very well so i will def re purchase :)
      Thanks for your comment

  2. I actually use shampoo and conditioner to wash my brushes. I first spray each brush with shampoo and clean thoroughly until all the residue comes off and rinse off. Then I spray each with conditioner let it sit for a bit then rinse off, and let dry. My brushes smells good afterwards...I love it! :)

    1. Thanks for the comment and your suggestions! I will def be trying out shampoo. I have seen some videos with shampoo and conditioner :) I will hunt out a really nice smelling one to use.

  3. I've just nominated you for an award!

    Also feel free to enter my blog give away! x

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
