What's in my bathroom #update


Now the sun is showing itself a little more often now, my bathroom essentials have changed. You bare more skin, have your hair dried out by the sun more and my skin gets more clogged. I can easily let my bathroom become overrun by products, to the point where all up the side of the bath is a line up of bottles, jars and soaps. Because of this habit of mine I've made a conscious effort to slimline my regularly used products, and these are my most used and loved right now. 

Vita Coco Coconut oil: I use for a nourishing hair mask when my hairs feeling really dry and damaged by the heat. Now It's officially summer and people are going on holiday and sunbathing, people are actively applying sun lotion and not really thinking about their hair. Even spending days out in this country my hair takes a hammering from the sun (especially because its bleached). I apply the coconut oil from the mid length to the ends after shampooing and leave it in for a few minutes and then wash it off. It leaves my hair feeling soft and smelling amazing.

Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream: Has to be my favourite shower cream from Lush at the moment and certainly matches with the bright sunshine we've been having. It honestly smells amazing puts me in such a summery mood. Its an instant hit of citrus with a tad of chocolate creating a fresh and sharp chocolate orange smell that honestly, makes you want to eat it. Your skin feels super soft and the scent stays around for you to enjoy all day.

Garnier Body - Summer Body: Being incredibly pale, I struggle with fake tan and actually getting a natural tan. I have to even use this Summer Body carefully as If I apply too much, I can wake up with patches that make me look like I don't shower. Generally, if I use this correctly and carefully, then the effect is nice and natural, giving your skin a natural looking sun kissed glow. It smells lovely which helps as you normally expose more skin in the hot weather. I normally apply this after a bath or a shower when my skin in clean and has had a good scrub.

this works - clean skin gentle cleanser: Day trips out, laying in a park, having a picnic or watching a film on an outdoor cinema. Whatever you get up to this summer your face is constantly exposed and even if you use sun lotion specifically for your face, it still can suffer. This is why I like to use a creamy cleanser, to soothe and nourish my dry and blocked up skin. With added natural ingredients like frankincense to act as an antibacterial and Rosehip oil packed with vitamin A its great for your skin and helps to restore balance.

Vosene frequent anti-dandruff: I find that my hair can get very upset in the summer period and build up on my scalp can prove annoying and kind of embarrassing. This can be from (as gross as this is) daily sweat from the heat or even from a product build up. You can use this daily, even though I don't but it's nice to have the option there if you really need it. The Vosene shampoo leaves my hair nice and soft and really does help with any sort of dandruff problem whilst being affordable.

Do you use any of these? What products do I need in my shower?

  1. That coconut oil hair mask is something I must try out as I don't own a hair mask and I think my hair needs one every now and again. I also own the summer body lotion and I get exactly what you mean if you apply too much! It does give a nice gradual tan though, especially on the legs I've found!

    1. Honestly the coconut oil is amazing. I couldn't believe I could buy a product to use in the kitchen, on my face and my hair. Just mad. Yeah I have to be super careful with the Garnier stuff as I can look so streaky lol xo

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…

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…

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
