Late to the NYX party


A beauty bloggers trip to London isn't complete without a, 'I don't need anything but I want to browse Selfridges beauty department'. I had seen all over our faithful friend social media so much hype on these lip creams. NYX as a brand is so affordable and of a good quality. It would of been rude to not have bought some, right?


The lip creams are so great for something to the have in your bag and reach for in times when you need that pop of colour. They're soft, creamy and dry completely matte. When I say matte I don't mean unbearably uncomfortable to wear, can tell you've got something on matte. Strangely, I found the darker shade to be slightly more comfortable to wear than the light one. I found that the lighter one, after time went quite patchy and a tad bitty around the edges. Chucking on a second coat over the top as soon as you realise this works wonders and goes straight back to looking lovely and fresh.



The face power is really fine and really nice once put on the skin. I haven't really noticed anything particular about the longevity of keeping me looking matte as I've been testing out a few different bases recently however I'll update you. The brow mascara, however isn't something I'd bother to re-purchase. Compared to my super crazy cheap Miss Sporty clear mascara, it's actually quite pants and find my brows looking out of place not long after applying it, which, is a bit disappointing but as it didn't brake the bank its all good. 

What have you tried from NYX? Any recommendations?

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

*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
