Face mask Friday - Bridesmaid prep



A wild Friday night in for me as per usual, however this Friday is a little special. I will be preparing for my cousins wedding which is on Saturday so my skin is having a good old pamper in preparation for a long day of a face of make up. I have a 'go to' group of masks that I go to when I know I need a good deep moisturising clean but something that doesn't have too much of an angry after effect on my skin.

I'll obviously start with a good cleanse to get my skin ready for a deep clean (Click HERE for evening skincare routine)

Starting with either the Aesop Parsley Seed masque , Una Brennan Super Facialist Anti Blemish Clay Mask the Liz Earl Intensive Nourishing Treatment mask which are very similar however tonight I will be going with the Aesop. This is purely because it does a great job with blemishes and has a very soothing and calming effect to my skin. Being a bridesmaid with a lovely shiny spot or super dry skin which will stand out in the family photos is not what I fancy having on Saturday. I know that using this helps to prevent these sorts of things from happening. After leaving the masque on for ten minutes and washing it off with a warm cloth makes my skin feel incredibly clean, tight and smooth.

I will follow this with the rest of my skincare routine, exfoliating toner, calming toner, serum, moisturiser and then go onto use my Origins overnight intensive mask. As this is made out of completely natural ingredients it's such a lovely hydrating product which allows your skin to get that hydration moisture which you leave on to soak overnight.

What sort of Friday night are you guys having? Will you be using any masks?

Love you guys!

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
