Addicted to beauty


"You have too much" or "Do you really need that" are said to me frequently and some see my hobby somewhat unnecessary. I can't go into town or any shop for that matter (including supermarkets) without taking a detour down the beauty isles. I'm drawn to it all and am addicted to trying as many products as I can. I can't describe it as anything other than an addiction to all things beauty. 

I have a Cath Kidston beauty travel bag which is always full of new products I'm yet to try. Once I've bought something I bring it home and they go straight into the bag. I slowly introduce a few items at a time into my main beauty draw and take pictures of the products and keep a note book close by. If I'm kindly sent products they're photographed immediately and over take items that I have bought myself as I always want to test PR samples out and upload my post in a good amount of time. 

Around two years ago now I took a year out of my blog having been swamped by teacher training and even then my passion didn't disappear. I would still continuously purchase the NEW products at the end of the Boots isle and visit the big department stores swatching high end beauty products I'd seen on blogs. I would sit in front of my mirror and play with my skincare and makeup trying different techniques or new products and still pass the time like that today. It got to a point where I felt I was going to explode having gone for so long without sharing my thoughts, excitements etc online. I get so excited about all aspects of beauty and could talk about it all day every day. I envy make up artists, dermatologists and full time beauty bloggers. Don't get me wrong I love teaching the youth of today but a major passion and part of me is beauty and anyone who knows me will vouch for that. I do hope that one day an opportunity will come along where my hobby can be taken to that next step. 

Do you think being addicted to beauty is a bad thing?

  1. I get strongly criticised and quite often patronised about how much I love beauty too, so many people see it as a waste of money or too superficial but I don't think it can ever be a bad thing to be really passionate about something! It's such an amazing and interesting industry which is forever growing and it helped me massively with building my confidence and self esteem :) I'm so pleased and grateful to be a part of blogging and be able to share my interest with like minded people who do understand the need for yet another lipstick purchase ;)
    Love Holly x

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

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
