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

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*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

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
