I say YES to cucumbers !


Myself and my mum like to follow the advice from the lovely Caroline Hirons, that you don't need to break the bank on a moisturiser. Although I'm sure its lovely to use one that costs an arm and a leg I would prefer to use something more affordable. So I have kept this is mind from that day and am always looking for something that is affordable and does what it says on the tin.

I found this whilst browsing around my local Boots and spotted this new section of 'Yes to' products. They have a range for all skin types depending on whether you have sensitive skin, normal to dry, combination and acne-prone, fine lines and wrinkles and lastly uneven skin tone. 'Yes to' are 95% natural and are paraben, SLS and phthalates free. I chose to go with the sensitive skin moisturiser as my skin can be a little unpredictable when it comes to new products and I am just best going for it if it's available. 

After using this for a week now I can honestly say I look forward to applying it in the mornings. The consistency is thick however when smoothed onto the skin you can almost feel it sinking in and leaves it feeling fresh and smooth. The product has a slight cucumber smell which on its own smell fresh and is a nice smell to apply first thing in the morning. Straight after applying the moisturiser I start my make up and this just leaves such a lovely feel to the skin that tint/BB cream/foundation just glides on and it feels like a match made in heaven. Whilst having this I've have stopped using a make up primer because this gives such a great make up base.

Large pea sized amount

Smooth and melts into the skin

Yes to sensitive skin moisturiser retails in boots for £11.99 which I don't think is a bad price at all. It's quite a big size and will last w while as I only need to use a large pea sized amount. I will certainly be re-purchasing it and will recommend it to family or friends who are looking for something along this description.  

Do you have sensitive skin? I would love to hear what product you use and whether its working for you. Have you got this and love it? Or is it not working so well for you? Or have you tried anything else from the ranges that 'Yes to' have?  Please comment bellow as I would love to know :)

Thank you for reading, see you Wednesday!

  2. I only use natural/organic skincare, so much more gentle for sensitive skin :) I love the Yes To lip balms but haven't tried many of their other products. Intrigued to try this moisturiser now you've mentioned how it's such a good base for makeup! 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.

mucho love

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…
