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!

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…
