Pink for spring


Bourjois - Ole Flamingo!, Eyeko Glossy Lip Pen, Mac - Impassioned, Rimmel Apocalips - Nova, Hourglass - Ballet.
My love for pink lips becomes quite a serious love affair in the spring time and I have carefully chosen my top five pink lippies that I'll be wearing this month. Some you have seen around these parts before however I have a couple of new and old thrown in that I have been dying to wear however needed some sunshine to do so.

Bourjois £8.99- I don't need to bore you with the amazingness of this because I have banged on about it enough. But seriously this shade is so nice.A bright raspberry pinky/red it really does brighten up your face and looks stunning on pale skin tones. With the bonus of its lasting power puts this up there as number one in the pack. 

Eyeko- I had two of these from a while back and have used one of them a lot and was time to say goodbye to it. I only opened the back up one a few weeks ago and am so happy I ordered two of the same shade by accident. Being one of the deepest in the group but remaining very pink but has a blue tone to it. Blue/pinks are quite hard to wear and with this I apply it from the bullet and then smudge it over with my finger to really push the product into my lips and makes it more wearable. 

Mac £15.50- One of my all time favourites Mac lipsticks for a number of reasons and within this group I feel really does stand out. It's a very orangey/pink and is so bright and flattering on my pale skin tones as the orange adds a little warmth to my face. As its an amplified finish it is very pigmented and long lasting which comes in handy as I'm always drinking or eating. 

Rimmel £6.49- Once on the lips and dry this transforms into a baby pink shade and very matte. I find I have to wear quite a bit of base make up to pull this off because of the paleness of the product once its dried. It's lovely to apply and wear as it's super smooth and thick and glides so beautifully across the lips. 

Hourglass £23- The newest of the group! I've had this for a while now and haven't featured it on the blog until now because I was trying to get to know it more. I've wanted to try one of these Hourglass liquid lipsticks for ages now and can't say I'm disappointed in any way. It contains so many lovely ingredients to help keep your lips smooth and hydrated throughout the day and doesn't dry up on the lips. Once dry its a dark baby pink and gives a real fresh look to my face. 

Are you a fan of pinks for spring? Let me know!

Instead of a Sunday round up there will be an Easter baking treat for you all. Have a lovely long weekend.

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

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

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
