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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips 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

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
