Oh, am I blushing?


No matter what time of year, I believe that a nice blush has the ability to tie in any makeup look. I don't stick to summer shades and winter shades, but I tend to go a tad heavier handed when applying in the colder months. I'm using theses five blushes a lot at the moment and am loving using them alongside my autumn makeup looks. 

Top left in a clock wise direction:

Mac Redhead- I originally bought this blusher when I had red hair as it was brought out for red heads. I find that it actually suits all hair and skin types as it contains multiple shades in all in one pan. I swirl my brush in the whole pan to collect all shades and find it works as a beautiful blusher and also manages to give me a little shimmer highlight to my cheeks which can look lovely on a night out when it catches the light.

Benefit posietint- I got this in a gift set and never thought I'd use it, oh how I was wrong. You can use this 'posetint' as a lip colour and a cheek colour which is amazing in itself. As a cheek product it really does give a bright and pretty look to the cheeks. More pinky toned of the group it gives a great fresh glow to the cheeks which you normally spot in summer but can look just a pretty on a winters day and looks lovely and fresh.

Estee Lauder Peach Nuance- This has to be one of my all time fav blushes ever. Such a lovely natural peach shade but as you can see starts as a yellow on one side? This never comes out on the cheeks, and you can see on my swatch that it applies as a nice wearable peach shade. I am a sucker for a peach blusher and bought this within minutes of seeing it. Sometimes I feel like peach blushers can look even more natural than a pink blusher. But to top off this blusher it has a mirror.... need I say any more.

Mac Peaches- When I bought this blusher there was so much hype about it on social media all of a sudden and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It's very pigmented and if you want a hint of colour a light hand is necessary. With it being so pigmented and orange I do go lighter with this blusher than the rest as you can easily go overboard. I love wearing this in the evenings as it gives a more subtle look but gives a colour payoff that will be noticed. I Definitely understand the hype and is a product that needs to be in everyones collection.


Natural Collection Pink cloudBeing a very pale pink I use this when I haven't got much time on my hands as I know it applies light and can just chuck it on. This is very much like the 'posetint' colour but a tad lighter. A typical baby pink it does look lovely and natural on pale skin. When I use a matte foundation and use this I find it really stands out with my blonde highlights and wear it more during the day for a lighter look.

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
