So much love for Real Techniques


Real techniques are a very popular brand of makeup tools not just with bloggers, but with a wide variety of women. As they are sold in Boots, I regularly see all generations picking the brushes up, especially on a 3 for 2. You could say that I didn't need to buy anymore brushes? But saying that I think it's always nice to have a few options for each type of brush so it keeps the washing of brushes down. That might sound lazy but it's nice to have a few crease brushes when mixing up eye shades, and as you can see have taken over my brush holder.

But why do we love RT so much? They are reliable. I feel that's the biggest factor of their success. They wash well, apply well, don't loose shape and are affordable and easily accessible. It makes them even more lusted over seeing them being used by the creators themselves on YouTube, you know that they're good if they are using them. Might be a bit bold but I feel I could live with just real techniques brushes (but being a beauty addict I like to use a bit of everything haha). 

A favourite? Hmmmm the expert face brush swept me off my feet when I first used it. I couldn't believe I hadn't used it until November last year. It's such a dream, and I have to say that I prefer it to the buffing brush! I don't have a brush I don't get on with but the sponge blender I found hard to use at first but it just needs getting used to.

The future of RT-  Have you seen the new Bold Metal Collection? Wowza! I will get myself some of that. The rose gold looks especially luxe. I hope to see many more releases from the two lovely pixiwoo sisters, and hopefully sometime this year they will do another meet and greet as I couldn't get to last years.

Do you use RT? Do you have a favourite brush?

Thanks for reading
xoxo

  2. I got my first RT brush a (what seems) long time ago while experimenting with foundation application. It was the Expert Face Brush and I instantly was head over heels and needed more! I own just about all brushes except their smaller defining brush (can't think of the proper name!). I am also so super excited about their Bold Metallic Collection!! I hope we can both get our hands on those rose-gold-gems soon!!

    Much Love,

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…
