Its all about the base ~ revisited



I can't keep track of the amount of 'light base' posts I've done since starting my blog, but what I do know is that I couldn't live without them. Of course I've got a few medium and heavy coverage foundations that I crack out on the odd occasion, but there's nothing I enjoy wearing more than a light coverage base. Whether it be to work, to dinner, or to a party, I reach for something light as I like my skin to look as natural as possible and give me a boost of radiance.



These beauties are my top three go to light base products right now. Some long time readers of mine will probably get bored as the Dior and Laura Mercier have been featured quite a few times. I'm sorry, but they're just too good not to, and if you're yet to try them out, this is my final push to get these in your life! 

Chanel Les Beige is the newbie in my collection and is just lovely. I was given a trial amount when it was first released and made it last for weeks until it finally ran out. I honestly didn't know what to do other than go out and treat myself to it. My instant thought was the price is steep, but told myself it was fine, as a little goes a long way with this product. I love how I justify things like this to myself. They call it a foundation, however, is so light it's verging on a tinted moisturiser/BB creme feel.
 

In terms of consistency, all three are very similar and actually all pack a good punch with coverage and longevity. In my opinion the champ is the Chanel as for me, it's best for being layered and lasts the longest whilst wearing nicely throughout the day. It's so smooth and doesn't grab onto dry patches or lines, but helps to add a healthy look to the skin without making it look lifeless and just one shade. 

Without a doubt all three of these will be on rotation from now, until the end of summer. I'm yet to find a drugstore light base that stands up to these guys and am always on the look out, so send your suggestions this way!

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
