Products I've loved in January


Maybe its the weather, but for some reason my top products of this month are mostly skincare. The winter that makes me really think about my skin and am always on a mission to hydrate it and have a glowing complexion. 

I don't need to go into too much detail as a recent post uploaded was all about my new love for exfoliating toners. This one in particular is my favourite. My skin has never looked as good as what it does now and I believe its all down to this product. Might sound pricey to some but it really is so worth it. Read my other post HERE

This is a great lipstick for a quick pick up or on route from work to dinner or a night out. It's quite sheer but gives your lips a nice bitten look. Would be a perfect lippy for people scared to wear bright reds as you can see this on the lips quite obviously but in a subtle way. Lovely and smooth on applying however hasn't got much staying power. But that doesn't stop me loving it.

Oh my gosh this is just to die for. Through out January I've been using this mask once or twice a week and really enjoy using it. Gives my skin a nice mid week and end of the weekend boost that it needs sometimes. This will for sure be a re-purchase and fear of this running out quickly. Comment below with your fav mask as I need to try more!

Now this is a product I have used for years now and since end of December have really been getting back into it. Just a quick smooth swipe of this on a cotton pad across both eyes sends an instant zing and wakes you up. The heavy eye feeling *which I experience often disappear straight away and allows you to start the day bright and chirpy. 

Why did I stop using this? I haven't used this properly for so so long and have been using it solidly for around 5 weeks. Every type of eye look you want to create is in this palette, complete with matte and shimmer shades its the perfect palette. I haven't tried any of the other Naked palettes, but I'm not sure I need to. Number one is enough for me.

My gym started supplying this magazine end of last year and get so excited when I spot it after a tough yoga class and go home to read through with a lovely cup of ginger tea. A great all round girlie mag that includes beauty and fashion, food and lifestyle. In my dreams I work at stylist.......hmmm I wish.

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…
