Highlighting my face in autumn

Having a very heart shaped face I tend to feel the need to contour and highlight in order to get some definition into those 'chubby cheeks'. During the warmer months I tend to not use highlight as the natural sparkle of a dewy (sweaty) face does that for you. Now it's October and getting a bit colder my base is moving to the more matte look with a nice blush, and a touch of highlight. The man for that and what I am reaching for on a regular basis is my YSL Touche Eclat.

I have a few fav highlighters that I go between however the finish of this makes it my number one for a liquid highlight. It's supposed to cover dark circles and everything however I still need to use concealer first, I guess my bags are too dark. Once its applied I like to dab it into the skin and it gives a very subtle touch of highlight, nothing too in your face. Its very easily wearable and could even be applied without a mirror as it blends in so quickly and effortlessly.

Once I start I can't stop- Touche Eclat £25
If your happy to spend £25 on a good highlight that seems to last ages and that won't let you down, I would say go for it! Its a great product and great for newbies to the highlighter step as like I said its easy to work with and subtle. I am yet to try a Touche Eclat in the new variety of shades as this is the 'one colour fits all' one. There are cheaper products on the market including one that is slightly cheaper and one I would really like to try which is the Clinique Up costing £22.

Do you have a go to highlight? I would love to know.

Thanks for reading

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…
