Benefit Curls Best friend #birchbloggers event









When I received an email inviting me to the Benefit Curls a Best Friend pop up store in Soho with Birchbox I instantly replied thank you and I'll be there. I'd heard so much about this pop up store I just had to go. The ground floor has a few tables where you can sit and have a drink with some music on and a nice atmosphere. The second floor has some brow bars, hair bars and a make up area where you can have any look created for you. The final floor was a cocktail bar with dimmed lighting, delicious cocktails and a place to sit and chill.

To start the evening we were greeted with a choice of any cocktail from the menu. I went for an evita spritz which was a sparkling elderflower cocktail and was so lovely and refreshing.  We had a good twenty minutes to mingle, chat and as bloggers do take pictures of everything. It was lovely having this time at the beginning to get to know some of the other ladies whilst sipping on scrummy cocktails. Oh so very sophisticated for a Wednesday evening when I'm normally snuggled in a blanket sipping on ginger tea in my hello kitty slippers. 

The lovely makeup artist that is Lisa Potter-Dixon who works fro benefit took us through three staple looks that have been created for all three of benefits oh so popular mascaras. *Click HERE for the looks and to get a hold of a sample. The first of the looks was 'Peach' and was created for the Roller lash mascara. A fresh and natural look where Hoola bronzer was used on the lips to create a nude lip. Yes ladies and gentlemen you heard me correctly, and yes it did look fab and I will be trying it pronto. The second was the 'Under smoke' look adapted from your normal smokey eye however taken underneath the bottom lash line. Bad girl mascara was used here to created really thick and voluminous lashes. The third and final look was 'Pantone Pick Me Up' which I have to say was my favourite out of the three. Mixing a lipstick and some benetint together it created this gorgeous cranberry colour all over the lids and blended it out. By adding the 'They're Real' mascara you were able to really flick out the corner lashes which finished the look.

Overall It was a lovely evening with Benefit and Birchbox where I was able to meet some lovely fellow bloggers, eat cupcakes that I shouldn't have eaten, drank cocktails and talked beauty and got my hair done by an awesome stylist. So thank you Benefit and Birchbox!

Do you like any of the looks? Have you or will you try any?

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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
