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

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…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

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…
