Exfoliating toners


Not long ago, I posted about toner and how it didn't really excite me nor did it interest me. But I can happily say that I have found a love for toner....exfoliating toners.

When do I use it?
I only use these at night and alternate between the Clearasil and the Pixi glow tonic. I find if I use these twice a day my skin doesn't feel as fresh and doesn't look as fresh looking. I guess it's just me.

What are the benefits?
Exfoliating toners contain acid which is actually a better exfoliator than using something with those horrible beads and that, that I've actually found to make my skin feel sore. Using an exfoliating toner also helps with dehydration of the skin. They help your skin lock in moisture which is amazing as our skin goes through so much that drys it out.....central heating, air conditioning, sunbathing, smoking (if you do) and the list goes on.

Do I feel a difference?
Yes yes yes! My skin has never felt and looked so good and fresh. I've even had people at work comment on how my skin looks glowing and radiant (no i'm not pregnant). I have noticed that my foundation/tinted moisturiser doesn't dry out and crust on my dry areas of my face which I used to get quite nervous and conscious about. Not sure if this next point is because of these products but, the balance in colour of my skin has also seen a change for the better. I used to have a lot of pigmentation patches. Now when I don't have any make up on and have just washed my face my skin looks a lot more even and just all over nice.

So will you or do you use exfoliating toners? How do you feel about using a product with acid in?


Thanks for reading

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.

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…
