"Are you wearing false eyelashes"

So I have a small confession to make.... this post is late due to the fact the GBBO final was on and also TOWIE and I am kind of a big fan of them both. I am sorry. I hope you forgive me and my taste in television.

-Right on to the post-

I have always had a struggle with my eyelashes. I call them 'cow eyelashes' as they just stick forward and do not enjoy being curled. They are very stubborn and with some products refuse to hold any sort of curl. I used to use the Loreal Telescopic Waterproof until it was discontinued and I nearly cried when I walked into Boots that day and saw the rack completely empty. I went in there originally to buy a mascara so I walked away with the Loreal False Lash Telescopic Waterproof as I thought I might as well give it a go. I had my doubts when I first opened it and saw the brush as I haven't really ever liked a rubber applicator. It does helps to hold my lashes well all day and can be layered lovely without looking spider lash. It is tough to get off but if you use the right remover it just takes a while. I have now repurchased this mascara three times since that day and never thought I would lean towards another mascara, when.....

I must have a thing for Loreal mascaras as this baby was on offer in Boots and I had to buy it one because of the packaging and two because I like Manga. I didn't think much of it to start with as this was just a sort of experiment for me as I already had my love for the False Lash Effect. I was initially nervous about using this applicator as it is very tapered and rather thick and heavy looking. In fact when applied with a light hand it gave a lovely delicate look to my lashes, however I couldn't stop layering and layering and my lashes looked great and I am going to put it out there.... better than the False Lash! This does not budge no matter how many hours I have it on. I get no black flakes or any black rub offs with this mascara and I am now in love with this and it will take a miracle for another one to top this. 

If you have a mascara that you feel can take the challenge I would LOVE to hear about it.

What's your fav? 

Thanks for reading :)



  1. I've never actually tried a loreal mascara, so I'll have to give the manga one a go, it sounds great! x

  2. Hi thanks for checking out the post! Honestly I swear by Loreal mascaras. I do use a curler before but I even get some students at school asking if I have false eyelashes on. So that males it a winner for me. What do you normally use? xx

  3. I think a lot of it also depends on the wand, I prefer natural wands over plastic to enhance the more natural look. I love using plastic wands for a more dramatic eye!

    1. Yes! That's why I was a little skeptical of the Loreal but was pleasently surprised how well it pulled a nice spread out natural looking lash.

      Thanks for commenting :)

  4. Like the girl above I have also never tried a L'Oreal mascara , I'm pretty sure I was gonna pick this one up the last time I was in Boots and ended up grabbing something else in a hurry . I regret it now after reading this post. ahah It sounds so good :( I also have 'Cow Lashes' as mines just don't curl for some reason and its super annoying x Great post doll, I'll defiantly give this ago next time my mascara runs out x

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
