Sunday round up - 10 -



Nearly the end of March and things are getting a bit brighter which always brings a smile on my face. The past week has felt like a blur as work has been crazy, however the Easter holidays are coming up and I'm thinking of blogging everyday again like last half term... what do you think? 

So my week in pictures:

1- Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in the shade 05 has been in my bag all week and thought what a better time to upload a post on it HERE. Not being a huge fan of lipgloss I was quite apprehensive to try this out. I was pleasantly surprised however not overly wowed. I'm going to try and persist and see if the love for this is a grower.

2- Flicking through my first In Style mag for ages and came across this awesome eyeliner look. So strong and bold, would look great along with an all black outfit and killer heels. It's on my list of things to try.

3- This is exactly how I felt this week. And the fact its a pug is just super cute. Hands up who loves pugs!!! *memememe

4- After a conversation with a friend about how much stuff I carry around in my bag on a day to day basis, I was thinking about the items I take around with me that really do come in handy. So naturally a post was born and I shared the group of miniatures that are worth lugging around. Post linked HERE.

5- Totally lusting over these Celine winkle pickers. Obviously way out of my price range so after searching endless websites I spotted these Mango ones which I AM going to purchase! Hoary for the high street. 

6- Recently I feel due to a crazy amount of fatigue I've been a tad addicted to Costa coffee as we have one at work. Pretty sure it's a phycological thing as I get decaf anyway but its cappuccino after cappuccino.

7- In a rush the other morning I delved into my base stash and realised I had a new bottle of this Loreal nude foundation. As I hadn't used it for so long I'd forgotten all about what it's like. It goes onto the skin so nice and silky smooth and really does last all day. Having sung its praises I broke out the following day.....hmmmm. A blog post on it will be up next week.

8- I need this in my house. You can't beat Moet on tap.

9- Haven't posted a picture of the little rascal for a while so thought I'd share his 'It's Friday' face. rI'm such a cat lady its unreal. 

10- Instagram has been filled to the brim with plaits and I have to say I jumped on the band wagon. I love an inside out plait like this one for work and lazy days as its quick, easy and looks like you've put in a bit of an effort. Really want to visit the Braid Bar
so they can do a much more advanced plait.

11- Another picture featuring a Costa but also a couple of free period essentials. A freeform angle cake and a Lipstick Queen lippy in Saint. What else would you want?

12- Suns out - Ray-Bans out. They're not my Ray-Bans but my boyfriends. I love these so much more than my Wayfarers. A cheeky summer purchase in the pipeline? 


Hope you're hsving a lovely weekend! Remember to follow me on social media, links to the right.

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…
