Pamper evenings with bliss


Seems like we are always go go go and personally have to schedule in some me time otherwise weeks can go by until I realise I haven't stopped. Normally I have a bath and a herbal tea on the go with Netflix on my iPad, a candle and a good smelling Lush bath product making the room smell delicious (loving Comforter at the moment). Quite often I'll apply a face mask or eye mask before I get in and lay in the bath while it works its magic. 

Whilst having one of those weeks were I just haven't had time to stop Birchbox contacted me and asking if I'd like to try out some *bliss products. Now being a lover of a good pamper (and in need of one) and just a skincare lover in general I jumped at the opportunity. 


My lovely box firstly contained the bliss gel-to-oil cleanser which they describe as "..the gel transforms into a lightweight, yet powerful cleansing oil that breaks down and melts away all traces of oil, impurities, and makeup. Skin is left with a gorgeous afterglow that feels completely clean, silky-smooth, and perfectly nourished." which I would totally agree with. It's heavenly when applying it after a long day. The cooling gel consistency instantly brakes down your make up and smears it all around your face (so you look like a very upset clown). It's pretty good at taking off my Benefit They're Real which is normally tough to remove. You can feel the transformation of the product as you massage it into the face as it turns into an oil. When removing the cleanser with a hot cloth your skin feels refreshed, smooth and super clean. 

Secondly (and the one of the two I was mostly excited to try) was the triple oxygen instant energizing eye masks meant to perk up your under eye area in just 15 minutes! bliss say they're effective because they " release 3 forms of glow-inducing oxygen to brighten, de-puff and hydrate the skin around the eye". Once the pads are completely soaked in the solution you pop them straight under your eyes and relax and wait. They are nice and cooling to help with any puffiness however there could be less solution as they were very much soaked they felt like they were sliding down my face so I laid down and closed my eyes every time I used them (any excuse to lay down). When removing the pads from under my eyes I felt instantly awake and refreshed. They are perfect to use before an event or special occasion as your getting ready as they definately perk you up, especially if you had a late night the day before. 

I've recently been in a state with my skin. Pores have been badly clogged and lots of impurities that I'm not normally prone to getting. This cleanser has actually helped that problem a lot and my bumpy skin seems to have got loads better and very few impurities and very close to saying my skin is back to normal!

In conclusion both of these products are products I would 100% re-purchase as they are products that good a very good job at what they say they'll do. The price tag might be a little high for some but honestly they both do a great job. The cleanser is gentle enough to use every day and the eye masks are a lovely treat on the odd day or evening when you really need a bit of an eye bright job. 

Have you tried anything from bliss before? Do you fancy trying these out?

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…

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…

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
