Make up I want, but my mum has


My mum is so on it with beauty and make up that I'm often going off on a tangent about a product I really want to try and she simply replies with "oh I have that", she should blog I tell ya! She's currently away so I'm free to have a rummage and obviously found some items I would quite like to own myself and thought I'd share those with you incase you've tried or got them and can give me some insight.

Mac Fanfare Cremesheen finish- Cremesheen finish is nice and really appreciate it when I try it on, but for some reason I don't really own many. Its such a lovely shade which is incredibly similar to my own lip colour but with a subtle shimmer once on the lips. A lipstick that would be lovely to have in my travel make up bag just incase as it's so close to my lip colour I wouldn't need a mirror to apply it. 

Mac Toxic Tale Satin finish- This shade is just beautiful and one that I'd never heard of before. Once on it looked very similar to impassioned which would be a good one to go for as Toxic Tale isn't on the website anymore. It's one of those ready, pinky, orangey bright shades that looks great with any skin tone. When I tried this out it seemed to last quite a while and felt more or so like a matte finish as of how long it lasted. 

Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm- Over the years bloggers, friends and family members have mentioned this product to me and I'm still yet to have my own to try out. It's supposed to brighten, smooth and moisturise for all skin types. Mum swears by Elemis products and the reviews I've looked up all seem pretty positive about it. Anything that can help the dryness around my nose and I'm all for it.

Loreal Paris Skin Perfection BB cream 5 in 1- You can't go wrong with a BB cream, especially in summer and the hotter days. Something you can put on and feel a bit more alive and fresh. I've tried quite a few different BB's but not tried this one. You get quite a lot for your money and has an spf of 25! Great news for us that try to look after our skin. This is for sure something I will be picking up in Boots soon. 

Are you envious of your mums make up/beauty stash?

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.

mucho love

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…
