My emergency handbag essentials



Being a bit of an organisation, bag swapping, OCD lass I have a few beauty bags within my one big handbag. These are the products I need through out the day. When I have chapped lips, dry skin, feel ill or have a spontaneous sleep over.

Sudocream *pr sample- This is great for chucking in your handbag and such a versatile product. I use it mostly on my knuckles as I have quite bad dermatitis which can get quite sore. It's hard to squeeze the product out of the tube but once you get it out and rub it in its all worth it. On bad days when my knuckles are flakey, this really helps to smooth it out and also calm down the redness and soreness.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir- £11.50-  I feel this has feature in too many posts recently but it really does deserve the hype. What's good for Victoria Beckham is good for anybody and she is a big fan of this product. I use this when I feel a bit greasy and sweaty after a long day at work or even to just refresh my make up if I'm going out straight after work.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream- £22.10 for 50ml-  A little bit of a miracle. I mostly use this on my lips when they need some love and attention. It's super thick and has a bit of a funny smell but everyone looks past that as it does such a good job. It's a great prep for lipstick as it soaks into your lips well and prevents cracks and build up in the dry skin.


This Works Sleep Balm- £12- I know this is for bed time however sometimes when I feel a little anxious or stressed I apply this to my wrists, rub it in and rub around my ears and under my chin. Smelling this lovely relaxing lavender scent really does do the trick to transport me to my happy place. It's great to have it on me incase of an impromptu sleep over. 


So they were the products that I keep in my little Cath Kidston bag just incase. Do you carry any products like this with you?

Much love
xoxo

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…

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…

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
