December reds for all your party occasions


Its standard to sport a red lip during the month of December to turn an average make up look, into a festive beaut. I've got quite a large collection of reds as its just classic and you can't go wrong, but these are my go to for the range of occasions the party seasons throws at you.

Popping into town red: I don't know about you but this year I'm quite behind with my Christmas shopping and popping into town every now and again is becoming a frequent occurrence. Because of this I need something thats quick and even something I can pop on in my car mirror or as I'm walking to grab a coffee. For this I head for the Revlon balm stain in Rendezvous. So easy to apply and gives a lovely red sheen to the lips. 

Social gathering red: Whether it be for a coffee or for one or two drinks with friends, I always go for something with a bit of pop and something that will stick around whilst sipping on a continuous string of decaf almond lattes. Beet from MAC is one that I love to wear when out with friends as its quite long lasting (being a lip pencil and all) but also is such a transition shade that if you went to a gathering and fancied heading out after, then Beet will be there for you. If I fancied something brighter and more of a classic red, then Maybelline Colour drama in Fab Orange if my grab and go. Acts as a lip pencil and all over colour in one, which sticks around through cocktail after cocktail, or coffee after coffee. It's a lovely shade which I can imagine suits a lot of skin tones. 

Night out red: Now this is where is gets to the big boys. My top pick of the three is my Nars Audacious lipstick in Grace. Although is more of a pinky red its just beautiful and definitely gives off a Christmassy vibe. Its super soft to apply and stays around for hours! Perfect to apply at 7pm and forgetting about it till early hours of the morning. Rimmel Apoccalips in Apocoliptic is a liquid lip lacquer. Once dry this does not budge......seriously! Really affordable dupe for the YSL ones. Juliannes red by Loreal is very similar in shade with the NARS lipstick (more of a pinky red) and is a real stunner. It has a slightly more matte formula which means that the laster power is actually better than NARS, meaning it doesn't leave you with bare patches on your lips. 

Whats your go to red for these occasions?

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

*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
