Sunday round up - 9 -

I haven't done a Sunday round up for what seems like months and knew that I had to get back into them today. My week has been good, loved the weather, had an exciting event to attend and spend a little money so all in all it was a golden one.

1- Bedtime is something I actually look forward to. A symptom of my illness is fatigue so generally I am excited to go to bed. My lovely sister got me the cat sleep mask for my birthday and have been loving using it along with my This Works products that help me to have a perfect night sleep.

2- As the sun is coming out and its starting to feel a bit more spring like. So because of this I embraced the brights and instead of a grey or a berry shade went for the orange Nails Inc NEON which I love so much. If your someone like me that lives in mostly black and grey clothing, adding a bright nail like this does wonders for your outfit.

3- Recently I've been really getting into my flavoured green tea. Because I can't drink milk or soya really I have almond milk which is lovely but most of the time I stick to herbal tea. Twinings do this great range of flavoured green teas which taste delicious. I have around 3 a day because they are that good. If your not a fan of normal green tea make sure you try this before you knock it as it honestly doesn't taste of regular green tea. 

4- An appointment with my specialist at the hospital means working from home and my everyday clothes. Loving these Nike New Balance trainers so much!!! Head over to my Instagram to check out my 'from where I stand' pictures where I tag all items. 

5- After pulling my eye mask off Wednesday morning I noticed how beautiful the sun rise was. I put no filter at all on this picture and its absolutely stunning. We have such a beautiful view from our bedroom and can't wait for summer to be here to see more beautiful sun moments. 

6- Having turned 27 at the beginning of the month I am verging on a big birthday and you may laugh but anti-wrinkle products have been in my consumption fro a good few years and am still using them religiously. I found this Caudalie set in a Fenwicks sale for a steal- Review and post HERE.

7-I was lucky enough to be invited to a Benefit and Birchbox event at the pop up 'Curls Best Friend' shop in Soho London. It was such a fab night and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Please see my post on this event HERE

8- After doing the social thing and mingling with other lovely bloggers, having some snacks, cocktails and demos we were able to have our hair or make up done by a specialist available in the shop. I was so impressed with my hair. I had to take it out before bed but was very tempted to sleep sitting up so I could wear it to work the next day. If you are going to a special party or anything and want your hair to be a show stopper, head to 'Curls best friend' before the end of the month!

9- I treated myself to a new MAC lip pencil in Beet. I had seen this used in a make up look that Nic from Pixiwoo had uploaded and fell in love with the colour. Such a nice true berry shade and looks lovely on its own or underneath a berry lipstick.

10- As it is mothers day this weekend I thought I would treat my parents to a home cooked meal at mine and Tonys. I was a little nervous as it was the first meal I had cooked for them since being in the house but luckily enough they like it. The more and more I look at our vintage sunburst clock the more I love it! Similar HERE

11- What a way to start a Saturday! A new In Style mag, caramel spread on toast and a decaf almond milk coffee... heaven. This was the calm before the storm as my pilates class was the hardest ever, sweaty betty. 

12- After a lovely Saturday myself and Tony sat down with a hot drink and put 24 on via Netflix. 6 episodes later and we finally peeled ourselves away from the sofa and dragged ourselves to bed. I hadn't stayed up that late for a long time so was shattered! 

To all you mothers out there I hope you have a lovely special day today!

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
