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

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
