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

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
