Matching Christmas nails and lip colour


I find it very satisfying matching my nail polish with my lipstick, and this time of year is perfect to go that little bit more OTT than normal. After having my Christmas nails done I rummaged through my vast collection of lipsticks and came across the shade that is perfect for the big day to match with my nails.

Maybelline Super Stay 24 hour colour- £8.99- Is a double ended lip product. It comes with a conditioning balm as a prep for the colour. Its very moisturising and sinks into the lips quickly. I tend to put this on at the beginning of my make up routine and by the end when I put my lipstick on they are ready and well prepared. I love the applicator for the lipstick! It makes it so easy to apply and with the pointed end applying it to your cupids bow is easy peasy. Mine doesn't have a shade or number on it but its a dark read with hint of fuscia pink. It contains small glitter particals that when the light shine on them, they give off blue, pink, silver sparkles. Perfect for Christmas, and perfect with my nails.


The staying power of this is awesome, but to the point where my lips are stained at the end of the day. This is something that gets on my wick normally but when you really do need the power you become so grateful! Eating, drinking, and more eating this lip colour with stay and stay and stay and will fast become a reliable product you will keep going back to (just like I do).

So if you're looking for a Christmassy red that sparkles and stays all day then this is your guy! Happy make up prepping for the big day! Hashtag....... hoping its not just me.


Thanks for stopping by. 4 more sleeps!!!

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…

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…

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
