Back to school make up


Half term done and dusted we are now getting back to school for the final term of the academic year. It's a long one and hopefully the weather will be warming up (she hopes) and no doubt will be super busy. With these points in mind I'll need to re-think my make up look, from half term (full on make up) to back to natural school make up which is teacher or student friendly.

It wasn't long ago that I did a natural make up look however have a couple of new products that I've brought into this look. My base switches between just using the Collection concealer to the Bourjois Healthy mix depending on what my skin was like. Both are very long lasting and blend into the skin so well it's like they become untraceable. As I often teach active lessons I don't use powder on a daily basis but if I do I'm still using and loving the Bourjois Healthy Balance . I use it for the days when I'm just in the classroom or have meetings after school as it really does lock your make up in. Having just bought a new Soap and Glory Archery I am totally loving using a fresh one however am still on the look out for something new along the same line (suggestions please). My mascara of choice will definitely be the Maybelline False Lash effect . Yes I'm a They're Real girl however this Maybelline one is perfect for school, natural and long lashes which last all day but is easy to take off at the end of the day (unlike the benefit one). I need this after a long day at school, a quick hair in top knot wipe make up off time. This would be it on a day to day thing and would flit between a few different lip balms. I'm quite boring with lip care as I tend to stick by the Blistex Relief Cream as it does the perfect job of smoothing out the skin on my lips and helps to prevent cold sores and what not. 

What will you be wearing back to school or college as a natural look? Are you a fan of natural make up looks and have products you swear by?

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
