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!

  1. Clarins is a great brand. I love its product with SPF15, it absorbs so quick!

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
