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?

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

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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products
