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

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…
