Sunday funday - My autumn staple and the countryside

Personally I love Sunday's, it's my favourite day of the week. The main reasons for this: Sunday roast! I have a nice lay in, spend ages doing my make up, food shopping and house work. But to round the day off me and my boyfriend travel to my parents for dinner in the countryside and relax in front of the tv. I haven't been well for a few weeks now which is not visible in the pictures but it will most certainly be a curl up in front of the tv kind evening.

When it starts to get a little colder I love a darker bronze toned eye with a subtle pop of colour on the cheeks and lips. I find bronze toned shadows make my green eyes pop and look brighter than normal. Now my hair is lighter I find that pink lipsticks (like the one pictured) are looking that little bit different with my skin tone and am really enjoying wearing pink instead of red.

The jacket I'm wearing is from COS and I bloody love it. It was this time last year when I bought it and fell in love instantly. It's such a perfect autumnal piece to have in my wardrobe as its warm but not too warm,  incorporates the mustard colour that Is always around at this time of year and is so effortlessly cool. I really enjoy clashing patterns as well and I find the easiest and safest way for me to do this is with scarfs as I kinda have a thing for scarfs. My favourite type of shoe is a boot, and as soon as the weather starts to change I find great pleasure getting my boot collection out from under the stairs.

Sorry for the blah post. I haven't been myself for a while as I am suffering with Post Viral Fatigue. After anything I do I am tired, I find myself napping frequently, lack of appetite and lots more. Hopefully I will be back to normal soon.

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and a relaxing Sunday. I'll be back tomorrow with a beauty related post.
Much love

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
