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

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

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
