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

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
