A tray of new things

A nice little group of newbies that I'be picked up over the last couple of weeks from Boots, TKMaxx and also a freebie from Mac. The Marble effect tray is also new and from H&M home in Berlin (Post HERE). 

yestocarrots- gentle cleansing wipes were an impulse buy for my holidays over the summer. I'm not one to use any sort of wipe on my face but I somehow forgot any sort of make up remover. After reading the packaging before one I noticed they weren't suitable to use on your eyes, which I found quite disappointing. Having said this they are great on my skin and don't dry out my skin like others I've used.

NARS eyeshadow in Party Monster was hidden at the back of a fully loaded shelving unit in my local TKMaxx. Good job I always have a proper rummage otherwise I wouldn't have seen it. I like wearing a purple eye every now and again and this shade of purple is something I don't own. This is my first NARS eyeshadow too so I'm excited to test this out and might be the start of many more NARS shadow purchases. 

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is a re purchase and I couldn't be happier. I love using this sponge at the end of putting on my make up and like to just press it all over my face. Occasionally I use it to add small amounts of concealer at the end if any areas need extra attention. It manages to really push all product into your skin and leaves it looking super natural and barely there. 

MAC False Lash Extreme Black mascara my mum got free and gave it to me (yes to freebies). I'm yet to use it for a substantial amount of time but my first impressions are that the consistency is very wet and not sure if my lashes will get on with it. Being extreme black intrigues me, how can something be extreme black instead of black? Stay tuned as this might get a bit more of a review. 

Have you tried any of these products before? What do you think?



  1. I have a beauty blender myself and I'm in love with it! It changed the way my make-up applied to my face beautifully, and now I can't do a make-up look without it.


    1. I completely understand! It gives such a natural finish but one that I find hard to achieve with a brush xoxo

  2. I really want to try that real techniques sponge, everyone raves about it! :) xx

    1. It's really good and so worth it compared to paying more for THE beauty blender xoxo

  3. Wow, I'm going to have to snoop better in TK Maxx, I'd of never imagined to find anything NARS in there! Really want to try some of the Yes To products x

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

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
