I want you back for good

Whilst shopping my stash the other week I came across some old favourites of mine that had been hidden under a stack of newer make up. Myself and other beauty bloggers would agree that we don't need any new make up but a little voice inside your head always says "you might as well, it is 3 for 2" so then the collection gets larger and larger. So I decided to swap everything over to give them a bit of limelight and boy was it worth it as I had forgotten how good some of these were.

Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara- is one of those mascaras that need to dry out slightly before they get really good. And this one certainly turns good. Because the wand is skinny it makes it so easy to get close to the base of the lashes and also not awkward to hold. It says that it shouldn't flake however I do experience a little but wouldn't stop me using it. It's a very intense jet black and quite a liquidy consistency  Nice as a day time mascara which gives a nice natural look and hold. 

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour lip protector-the super handy chuck in your bag lip balm that sorts out dry lips in a day of constant application. Having only had this since Christmas it's not really an old favourite. Being a bit funny about germs and sticking your finger into a pot I love the fact you apply this just like a lipstick. It's so soft and nourishing on your lips and is handy for holidays as it has an SPF 15!

MAC Mineralize skinfinish Redhead- was bought when I had bright red hair as it was advertised for people with red hair in a special collection they had going. However through the red, brown and now blonde hair it still looks great and can honestly be used no matter what hair colour you have. It gives a lovely highlight/shimmer effect to the cheeks whilst at the same time add a natural bronzed glow. So really its a blusher and highlight in one. Such a beautiful product that needs to be viewed in person to understand the beauty. 

MAC Pressed Pigment Warming Heart- I love wearing when I use the MAC blusher as they look great together. Its a pressed pigment and can take a couple of layers depending on what brush I use, but once built up it can look very opaque and incredibly bronzed. I like using this as one colour all over the lid but also sometimes as a loose, light dusting of shimmer over another shadow. Perfect if you want to transform your day time look to evening. 

Sleek lipstick Candy Cane- is quite possibly a perfect coral lipstick. The formula of these lipsticks are great and super smooth and creamy. They last well and are easy to apply straight from the bullet. Looks gorgeous with a tan and seems to enhance the darkness of your tan some how. They are so affordable and do a wide range of shades. 

YSL Touche Eclat-is mostly used on my under eye bags. It really helps to counteract the darkness and brighten it right up. The lasting power is quite good and gives such a nice natural highlight which is nice all year round. I do have to say that there are very similar ones in the high street that do a good enough job, but these YSL ones seem to last forever on the skin and forever as a product. I have them for ages before I need to buy another!

Is it time you shopped your stash and gave the old favourites a bit of 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…

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…
