Late on the bandwagon: Maybelline Colour Tattoo



I've held off on buying some of these Maybelline Colour Tattoo eye creams as I had heard so many mixed thoughts on them which made me more and more hesitant about giving them a go. This changed when I was in Boots a while ago and noticed the three for two deal and nothing else really took my fancy so thought I'd take the risk and grab a couple to try out. 

To start off I am so impressed with the staying power of these bad boys. On my skin these guys stick around. I wouldn't say it's for the 24 hours that it states in the name however an awfully long time. Even trying to take off my swatch in Boots took a while and had to completely remove it with my trusty steed Clarins make up remover when I got home. 

The low down: I went for the shades Metallic Pomegranate and Permanent Taupe and will be going back for more. The shade Permanent Taupe is such a wearable everyday shade and looks great on its own or will a little darker shade popped into the crease. The Metallic Pomegranate on the other hand is my favourite of the two and love wearing it on its own. I used a MAC 217 to blend out the edge and it looked great. I found that it took a little while to completely blend it out but the finished result was just what I like from a red eye make up look. Like I said the staying power is great, especially perfect for a night out as sweat won't even budge them. I noticed a bit of creasing when using the cream without a primer so this is something I'm currently experimenting with several primers. 

Overall I was pretty chuffed with these little guys and will most certainly be having another look in Boots on the next three for two as I love the look of the And On Bronze shade.

Much love!

  4. These are so good! You need to pick up the leather effect ones as they're such great matte colour! It's very hard to find good matte cream shadows I find.

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…

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…
