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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
