A few Christmas present beauty picks


On boxing day you don't want anything too heavy to concentrate on due to the full on day yesterday, so todays post is a few beauty things I received from Santa that I am very much looking forward to using. 

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser- £8.99- 
I am usually a massive Liz Earl cleanse and polish girl but feel I need something else for during the week. I always think that you can't go wrong (reaction wise) with a product that claims its gentle on the skin, and have heard so much about this that I was intrigued to try it out. It's recommend for all skins types, can remove daily make up, can be used on face and body and can help against dryness. It sounds like a win win situation and can't wait to give it a go, and being so affordable and easy to buy its even better.

Loreal La Palette Nude- £11.99-
Being a sucker for a palette as soon as I saw this in shops I knew it had to be mine at some point. I was super happy to recive this on Christmas day and used the darkest plum colour which is just lovely. Being in a hurry yesterday I didn't prime my eyelids and had a bit of creasing so can't really judge yet but all colours seem very pigmented. A great range of colours for day and night.

Pixi Glow Tonic- £18.00-
Exfoliating toners is an area of skincare I am not really in good knowledge about so am trying to educate myself, and Caroline Hirons videos and blog have been great. This helps to tone, exfoliate and tighten skin. Its alcohol free and contains ginseng and aloe vera. My fingers are so crossed for this to help out my skin!


Thanks so much for stopping by on boxing day. Hope you are having a lovely day and are relaxing, eating and keeping warm.

P.S- who else is looking forward to Christmas haul videos and blog posts!?!?!

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
