A tray of new things #2



Working Monday - Friday and home improvements on a Saturday doesn't leave much shopping time so new products are being bought a lot less right now so posts like this I find is a nice way to share with you guys what I've purchased lately. Most beauty products. Two of these are again TKMaxx finds and I can't begin to explain how much enjoyment I get from having a rummage in my local TKMaxx and haven't been for a couple of weeks so am looking forward to locating my next find.

The Balm is a brand thats really intrigues me, and seeing it splashed all over social media just tempts me beyond belief. When I spotted Balms Away I got super excited and waved over my mum in an attempt to be nonchalant but in the end just shouted "Mum....The balm". It contains vitamins and lipids which hydrate and restore the elasticity around the eye which sounds great as some really aren't fans of rubbing the skin in the eye area., so knowing this helps that is nice to know. I can't wait to see how this fights my Benefit They're Real which is the most stubborn mascara ever. 

I'm quite content with my Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curlers but these Japonesque ones shouted out "buy me" as soon as I saw them. Love the fact they're completely black and just so chic.  I hope I end up loving these as much as my Aucoin ones and suspect a whole blog post will go up at some point sharing my findings.

Lastly I re-purchased a COLAB dry shampoo. Purely because it's the only one I've ever used that is literally untraceable to the naked eye. I hadn't used the Tokyo scented one before however is a lovely smell. It's very fresh and oriental an works wonders on my two day hair. 

Any new things you think I should get for myself?

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
