Inside my friends make up bag

We all have friends that we know we can chat to about certain stuff, like your guilty pleasures (waves hands in the air- One Direction) or the friend that knows you carry 6 lipsticks in your bag at all times (again waves hands in the air). Well K-Mac (check out her blog HERE) is a great friend that I literally can talk to about anything, however on the top of our chat list is make up. She's just like me and always likes to try out new products and on a regular basis share our views on our most recent purchases. 

I asked her to choose a face of make up out of the collection she had in her bag and here are her top picks:

Benefit You Rebel: Tinted moisturiser , Barry M: Afterglow Light Bronzer , Benefit: Watt's up! , Benefit: Roller Lash , Benefit: Fake up Rimmel blush: Live Pink , Eylure: Brow Palette , Bourjois: 48 hour eyeliner

The first product that I was super intrigued about is the Benefit Fake up. What genius created a concealer stick with a barrier or moisturiser around it? And secondly, why have I only just found out about it. K-Mac sold it to me when she said it's very hydrating and works great even when your skin is crazy dry because of the layer of moisture. I'm sold!

The Eylure Brow Palette is a product I've seen and heard about from quite a lot of people however K-Mac is in love with this and hasn't used anything else for her brows since. I've never used a wax product like this before but her brows are on point so maybe I should give it a go?
Is there anything in K-Macs make up bag that you use or would like to try out? I'm off to buy Fake up..... sounds amazing!



  1. Very intrigued about fake up! I've never seen this product either but suffer from dry skin so may have to give it a whirl.

    I'd love to go through my friends makeup bags and see what they wear - everyone is so different after all!

    1. Exactly! Thats why I thought I'd share the post because everyones make up bag is unique and I love to be nosey. Thanks for stopping by xoxo

  2. I still event tried Benefits' Roller Lash, I know everyone raves about it though so I need to give it a try. Great idea for a post as well, I haven't seen one like this before.


    1. I love Rollerlash and I find it hard to choose what I prefer They're Real or Rollerlash. You must give it a go :) xoxo

  3. This was a really good post. I'm ashamed at the fact that I haven't used any of these products before!

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…
