Products I liked in December


A month of rediscovery! December has been lovely product wise as I have curbed my spending on myself due to Christmas being round the corner, which has made me shop my stash often and fell back in love with some products that I hadn't used for a long time.

We've been in our new house since April and this has been packed in my Cath Kidston beauty travel case since. I had completely forgotten about it until my recent clear out and shower time smells oh so good again. To me this smells like sweets, skittles or refreshers. As it's an exfoliator I tend to only use it a few times a week but really does scrub my skin nicely and leaves it feeling lovely and fresh.

Mink and Stone necklace- £56.27- 
I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to design my own necklace on the Mink and Stone website and was entered into their blogger competition. I was over the moon when I found out I had won and before I knew it, the necklace I had designed arrived on my doorstep. I haven't stopped wearing this, to work, into town etc. I have got lots of lovely compliments on it and will continue to wear very frequently.

Sephora eyehsadow- Precious gem- $13- 
This was purchased quite a while ago. It ended up being used a few times and then being added to my collection of single eyeshadows and soon forgotten as I go to my palettes more often. At the start of December I started to rummage for Christmassy products, anything that shimmered or contained glitter and I came across this. Its matches perfectly when put over the top of either Cranberry or Antiqued by Mac. It gives your eyes that tiny bit of shimmer. Perfect for this time of year.

Rimmel London- Spice lip pencil- £2.99-
As you can see in the picture above, this has been used quite a few times. It ends up giving my lips a very dark nude look which as everybody is aware of at this moment in time. It's quite drying and you need to apply some lip balm at the beginning of your make up application. During the day I tend to dab some on to keep the moisture in. This shade looks great for day and night especially alongside bold eye make up.

Maybelline- Super stay 24 hour- £8.99-
I featured this in it's very own post linked HERE so won't go into too much detail. This is just great for Christmas day. Through continuous eating and drinking it doesn't budge and is super glossy with a hint of glitter. It's such a winner.

Rodial- Been venom moisturiser- (sample in picture) £150-
This came in my special edition Glossybox and didn't think much of it when opening the box. I started using it near to the end of November and have completely used up my sample size. I didn't visibly notice changes in my skin but it made my it feel moistured, soft and bouncy. Because of the name I thought my skin was going to really tighten or tingle and I didm't feel anything like it at all. Kinda disappointed (giggles). Its in my favourites because it does make my skin feel lovely and have enjoyed using it.

Thank you for stopping by! Bring on January :)

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
