The usual lip product suspects

I can't be the only one who ends up with a bunch of lipsticks/lip products because 'you just never know'. I'll go out wearing a pinky nude and then after lunch fancy a bold lip and low and behold I will have a few to choose from. I'm not sure how I end up with at least 6 different lip products in my bag, but it gets to a time where I go into the lipstick section in my collection and notice a big dent and think to what bag did I last have. 

So on this day, the lip products I have in my bag are:

Models own- Blackberry: IF you need something sheer with a hint of colour that is super hydrating and moisturising for your lips all at the same time, then this is the guy for you. I've been a lover of this for a few years now and Sammi over at The Beauty Crush got me into it. It give enough colour to make it look like you have taken quite a while to apply. Such a nice dark berry colour and perfect for people who are afraid of a bold lip.

Collection creme puff- Cotton Candy: A product that doesn't get much attention for some crazy reason. I literally love these and for the price, they are an absolute steal. They dry matte and give such a great colour pay off when applied and after an hour on the lips. It has a sponge applicator which I like using more than I though. The crime puffs are products you can chuck on without a mirror with ease and are great if your off out somewhere and need to slap a bit of colour on.

Mac -Ruby Woo: Ok so my previous two are easy to wear throw on products. This one is the complete opposite. I always make sure to have a red with me at all times, because you just never know when your going to need one. This is one of my most favourite reds I own which is the same for a lot of people. Creates such a bold statement lip with a touch of vintage and class about it. Yes I have to use a mirror to apply it, but it's so worth it.

Clinique chubby stick - Mimosa: This particular shade is very much like the collection cremem puff but shearer. If I don't fancy a bright, or a sheer red I go for this. Gives a little gloss to the lips with a your lips but better boost. Another easy to apply product that. Will never fail to perk up a face that screams 'It's been a hard day'.

Maybelline colour drama- Light it up: Having included this in a few posts now and seen these on so many different instagrams and so on, it's clear that these are one of the most wanted right now. They are such a soft formula, nice to apply, long lasting and incredibly high in colour pay off. I find this easier to apply that MAC Ruby Woo so if I cam short on time I head straight to this one. 

Please tell me there are other people out there that do this! Comment below with your usual suspects.

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…

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…
