It's all about the base by Rimmel


Having taken full advantage of the most recent 3 for 2 offer in Boots I finally treated myself to the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation in Ivory. There is so much love for Rimmel bases and having not tried any before, so I chose this. 

Shade- The shade range is pretty good and was happy to find they went pale enough to match my skin tone which I can honestly say is pretty much spot on. I could probably go lighter however like to give my face a little more colour as your face sees the sun more anyway. 

Formula- Its quite thick however not really thick and gloopy. When applying it to your skin it feel really light, very similar to how the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser feels on the skin. It has quite a strong fragrance to it which isn't off putting but is quite strong. Theres no need to have to really buff this into the skin as it's effortless to blend and sits on the skin very lightly for a full coverage base. It covers well and reduces the amount of concealer I need to wear. It does well to cover my rosy cheeks but I still feel better wearing my green cheek primer. 

Staying power- I haven't had the opportunity to wear it for a whole 25 hours however for a whole day of 9-9 it did pretty good and when cleansing I had to use quite a few cotton pads to get it all off my face. Even at the end of the day when looking in the mirror it was clear that I had something on my face but didn't look too oily or dry. 

To op it off it has a pump!!

Have you tried this foundation or another from Rimmel? What do you think?

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…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

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…
