Primers for the party season


Are you getting in at the end of the day/night and looking in the mirror at your skin which looks like you haven't put anything on it? In that case you are in need of a primer and boy do I have a couple of corkers for you to choose from.

Benefit The POREfessional - £24.50- 
Having used this for ages now I feel slightly biased towards this as my favourite of the two. The first couple of weeks of using it I actually didn't even like it. It felt too oily and really didn't think it worked. However after persisting with it I haven't put it down since and have two other bottle waiting upstairs in my back up stash. It has proved to be a lovely base for make up to go on top of but also something that allows the foundation to remain with the same finish as it did when you first applied it. The round up....a great product!

Laura Mercier Foundation primer- £29.00- 
I've only had this since receiving my Harvey Nichols Glossybox but have been really enjoying this for my day time wear. For some reason I actually prefer the feel and consistency of the Benefit product. This is more gel like and feel wet and thin on my skin, where as the Benefit feels thicker. I prefer this for the day as the thinner consistency and coverage feels nicer to wear during the day and teams perfectly with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser. 

To sum: Over the holiday season I will be sticking with the POREfessional for those evening occasions where I want to look flawless and the Laura Mercier will be used for those days where you visit family, trips out to do last minute shopping.

Do you already use a face primer? I would love to try a few more.

Happy Monday everyone!

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…
