My lipstick choices | Autumn/Winter



As the seasons change, my choices change as do everyone's. From my choice of what herbal tea I want, the pjs I reach for, to the lipstick I want to wear. They all become very seasonal appropriate and feel like lipstick becomes quite a big thing during the November/December time period, for me anyway, as I'm often seen sporting a bold lip.


I'm finding that all five of these are either hanging around at the bottom of my bag, in my make up pouch or in my jacket pocket. All in their own way add a lovely bit of colour,
and is just my thing this time of year. From caring to my lips to bold and daring, lets get stuck in!

For days when I'm not keen on a bright or opaque lipstick, I reach for the Dr Paw Paw peach tint. This is more for days when I go a little heavy on the eyes and like to add a subtle sheen on the lips. This really does the trick and helps sort out any dry thing going on. My next step up is the Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Double Dare. Being quite a deep cocoa and very opaque shade I just does well to coincide with a burnt orange or brassy eye look. Everyone needs a deep berry lippy for Autumn/Winter, and having the choice of keeping it sheer or building it up is just a big plus. This Revolution lipstick in Reckless is a shade I've not really been keen on, but always longed for the perfect one. Being able to wear it in a sheer and dabbed into the lip way as well as having the option of really building it to create a rich payoff is exactly what you need. 

Of course I saved the brightest and most in your face till last, being Revolution Red Carpet and Mac Heroine. Both very different in terms of type as Heroine is matte and Red Carpet is more smooth on application and not a matte finish. Both I enjoy wearing as a statement especially with a monochrome outfit. Both aren't bad in terms of wear however I do need to reapply the Revolution one more often.




Swatches from top to bottom- Dr Paw Paw | Kat Von D | Revolution makeup | Revolution makeup | Mac.

I'd love to know what lipsticks your constantly reaching for right now!

xoxo

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
