Timeless beauty | Dame Joan Collins


Most people have heard of Dame Joan Collins, either for her films, charity work and so on. Who would have thought that creating and releasing beauty products would be something to add to her list of accomplishments. She's glamorous, inspirational and beautiful. I knew I had to give some of her products a go!


The Ten Effects Skin Treat and Makeup Fixer boasts so many different benefits (see below picture).  Some things I was incredibly happy to see, especially this time of year were "super hydrates, firms skin and locks make up". It's quite heavily scented which for some might prove an issue. For me, it's been fine and hasn't aggravated my skin at all. The scent is nice and the perfect way to describe it would be 'timeless'. The ingredients include organic rose water, hyaluronic acid and red algae gel. Having used this product for a good couple of weeks I've noticed its been very good at hydrating and some dry areas especially are looking pretty good. It's actually been nice to use this spray as a makeup fixer and has definitely helped to lock my makeup in place for an entire day.


I'm certainly one for taking the time to look after my skin all over my body and not just my face. I'm a regular exfoliate and body butter user so I was interested in giving the Dry Oil a go as I was a bit stuck in my ways in terms of body exfoliation products. If I'm being completely honest, the scent is a little too much for me, and reminds me a little of my nans perfume (which is a nice thing but not want I want my skin to smell like). The plus is that this did exfoliate well, and left my skin so so smooth. It worked particularly well pre-shaving my legs and made a nice change to use a different product, as I'm normally a Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub kinda gal.


I'm honestly in oar of the Ten Effects spray, and think that anyone, any age would appreciate it for the wonders it does and, for the help with makeup longevity. The Dry Oil would make a lovely Christmas present for an older women in the family, as it smells mature and most of all feels very luxurious to use. Dame Joan Collins said “Beauty is not just for the young. I believe with a little care and attention any woman can look good through her 40s, 50’s, 70’s and beyond.”.

I'm hoping these can products can do wonders on me to allow me to look as good as her in my 40s,50s and even 70s!

  2. Did not no that she did beauty products, learn something new everyday! The spray sounds good, not too keen on strong scents however the benefits seem to out weigh that! Great post lovely!

  3. These sound quite nice but I understand what you mean about the scents not being for you and by th sounds of that I wouldn't really want to buy it. Good idea for an older family friend that's into pampering though!

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…
