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,

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
