Hello December - hair, hands and body


Adverts calendars, present panic, wrapping, hot chocolates, Christmas films, dark and cold nights in, the list can go on and on listing all the things I love about December and the run up to the big day. I have some beauty staples that are brought out of my stash every winter to help me through this month.

Cocoa butter: skin therapy oil - £9.99-  I love to use this in December for so many reasons. I can really suffer with dry skin and this can sort that our straight away. After the shower or bath I like to slap a nice thick layer all over my skin and jump into a onesie or some thick pjs. You feel a bit sticky for a while but when you wake up the next day, it feels like you have baby soft skin. To top it off........ it smells like mint chocolate!

Soap and Glory Hand food - £5.50 - A staple in a lot of peoples hand bag or bed side tables, this hand cream is a winning for me any time. I tend not to use this during the other months of the year as I find that it is quite thick and my hands don't really need that much attention. The smell is lovely and typical to Soap and Glory products. Not an expensive product and you get a lot for your money and lasts a long time. I tend to apply this after I've done all my skincare routine and brushed my teeth. I wash my hands and smooth in a generous amount into my hands so it can soak in over night. Bliss.

OGX Keratin oil - £4.99 - I have very dry hair naturally as well as having a lot of bleach through it so I need to take more care in the colder months. I have re-purchased this twice as I found it to be so lovely to use. With other hair oils it leaves your hands feeling so horrible (I'm a bit weird) but this one doesn't leave the strange feeling which made me very happy. I apply it on towel dried hair and a small amount after blow drying. It makes my hair feel advert quality, smooth and silky and the dry horse hair is left behind.

Do you have any winter staples that you swear by? I would to know.

Thanks for stopping by xo

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

mucho love

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
