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!

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

mucho love

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
