My summer makeup



The days are longer and the suns warmer, which means we tend to go a little lighter on our makeup. We might not spend as long on our face and reach for looks and products that are fast and easy to apply. Full coverage foundation is not something I'm referring to here and for me, the sheerer the better and, the more natural and glowing the better.


My go to summer face is a very straight forward one that doesn't require that much time and is super easy to do. I really like to keep it simple and just switch up my lipstick colour. I like my base light as I don't want to cover up my freckles or anything as my face catches the sun nicely (I use SPF 30 on my face everyday). I'm really not a fan of over doing my face in the summer months, it's nice to feel fresh and have a bit more of a natural look with your makeup. When it comes to eyes, I like it simple and sometimes I don't even wear eyeliner and just mascara. When it comes to the lips, however, I like to change it up often and very much enjoy experimenting with colour during the summer.


In these pictures I'm wearing the following and am reaching for these on a daily basis:

Chanel Les Beiges - N10
Benefit Hoola
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to cheek - Love is the drug
Collection Extreme 24hr liner- Black
Natural Collection Brow pencil - dark brown
Benefit They're Real - Black
Clinique bottom lash - Black
Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipstick - Lovesick 



So, is a more natural look something you like wearing in the warmer months? What are your go to products for a simple natural look?

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

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
