Quick spring picks for on the go

Recently, during the week I've been really slapped dash and short on time for my makeup application, so, I've been grabbing and going and using these products on the train. I apply my base first at home, which at the moment is my Chanel Les Beiges (and yes I'm still totally in love). It gives such a natural look with good coverage and lasts all day and doesn't wear away. I also do my brows quickly before running out the door which is still my trusty steed, the Soap and Glory Archery. I go through these like no ones business and so thankful they're affordable. Before I head out the door I've been spritzing the Modern Muse Estee Lauder giving me an instant spring like boost. 

My step by step guide whilst on the train is the following:

1: Curl the stubborn cow lashes with my N7 eyelash curlers. Got these last Christmas and they're really not bad. I was very dubious as to whether they'd actually be worth using compare to my Kevyn Aucoin ones and was very surprised. They allow you to get really close to the base of your lashes and pulls them gently round and up. I have to say, not my favourite, however pretty good.

2: The lids, in the form of the Maybelline 24 hour tattoo eye shadow which I literally chuck on my eyelids and rub in with my fingers. You've got to work quickly with these, but they do last well throughout the day. I don't bother with priming my eyes during the week and do see a difference with the longevity, but nothing a quick lunch time touch up can't handle. I use the shade Permanent Taupe which, when applied lightly is a really nice everyday shade. 

3: Benefits They're Real push-up liner is a product that's taken me quite a while to love, and learn how to use it properly. At first I found it very awkward and could never get a nice straight and crisp line, unlike when I use the felt pen nibs. Now I've had a great deal of practice with it, I honestly love it. Its so easy to blend out too, and gives a lovely smudged effect. One thing to remember with this though, is that a good oil based makeup remover will be your best friend. 

4: Mascara of choice is still the lovely Burberry which has been my go to for a while now. A blog post will be going up very soon featuring this so I won't go into much detail other than I love it. 

5: Instead of layering up with the bright Sleek lipstick in Heartbreaker, I've been pressing it into my lips after applying my EOS lip balm, and smudging it in. This method is great when you know yo'll be eating or drinking or just won't have time to re-apply as its a more natural way of giving your lips a pop of colour, without smothering them in matte lippy that will crack or smudge. Love this shade around spring time and really compliments my very light skin tone. 

6: Lastly, these invisibobbles are my life and have changed the way I put my hair up. They don't snag, pull or rip your hair and hold onto your hair with a good grip. I'm really into putting my hair up in a pony and pulling sections to mess up the front slightly, giving a 'I woke up like this' vibe. 

Do you commute and have easy to use, quick products you could recommend to me?



  1. Hello, I spotted you on Tanya's blog and decided to come and say hi! I have been really enjoying reading your blog. It would be cool if you checked out mine, too. Are you open for any collabs?

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
