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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
