What I've been loving in May

This monthly favourites is a nice varied one in which mostly contains new products. It's been a busy month where my social life seems to have rocketed some what. When planning this post I had quite a long list of favourites but wanted to keep it a small cluster. Enjoy!

Show- Finishing spray-
First of all we must address the gorgeous packaging. How luxurious and sleek! The lid is weighty and the bottle is a nice size to hold comfortably because sometime you get a large canister and can't hold it right and sprays here there and everywhere (I say hoping other people do it too). This finishing spray is great as it's build able. You can have a very light hold all the way through to super hold (doesn't move in the mind). The smell, unlike others is lovely and almost slightly fruity. Yes it's quite pricy, but honestly so worth it for something that doesn't choke you after spraying the tiniest amount. 

Skin Pep- Dark Circle Eraser-
I didn't think I would become dependant on an eye cream at 27 years old however I might have to put in an order for some back ups. I've tried quite a few different dark circle creams, but none that I've seen and felt a difference like I have with this one. I won't go on as I've already done a post where I've gone in depth HERE

Mac Lip Liners- Soar and Beet-
This month has mostly consisted of lip liners, and these two have been my favourites out of the lot purely because of the shades. Beet is such a gorgeous berry red shade and Soar is a nude pink shade. The Mac liners are so soft and really do glide along the lips with ease and last near enough all day (with a couple of fill stops). If your a fan of long lasting lip products you most certainly need to check these out. 

Clarins Gentle Eye Make Up Remover-
I've recently been using the Benefit They're Real mascara which can be a bit of a pain to get off at the end of the day so needs something tough to remove it. This Clarins remover is tough and does eventually get it all off. Even though it's the best eye make up remover I have I still need to use a few cotton pads, but is hands down the best eye remover I know. 

Acqua di Parma- Moagnolia Nobile- Even though I posted my spring scents the other day I have been using this everyday as a back up perfume I've carried around in my bag everyday. I had a few and am down to my last one. It's a lovely strong floral scent that seriously lasts a long time. As well as being a floral scent, it contains some citrus notes which you can really get a wiff of once its settled on the skin. Yes it's super pricey so something that would be a special birthday present. Try and grab some samples!

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
