What I'm splapping on my face right now | #jaidemas


Last week I had a little switch around of a few items that I had just completely forgot about. You know what the deal is, when you have too much 'stuff' that you end up just picking the same thing every day. So, I selected a few products I'd not used in a while, or never used, and put them in a make up bag which I was determined to solely use for a certain period of time, until I had a good opinion on the newest items. I'm pretty proud that this exact line up has been on my face since I shared this snap on Instagram last week. I'm honestly love this gang and thought I'd let you know why they're spicing up my make up bag. 

It's all about the lashes for me right now and I'm ditching the liner as in all honestly, I just can't really be bothered right now. I'm in a liner rut and am kind of waiting for the greatest one to land right in front of me as I'm fed up searching for it. For now, it's my lashes that are dominating my eyes and I couldn't be happier I found the Nars Audacious Mascara in my local TKMaxx so much cheaper than it should be (#winning). The wand has lots of little bristles and really grabs onto your lashes from the lid and pulls them right up. The length and the curl holds for hours and have been receiving compliments since using it saying my eyes look like they are popping and really stand out.  

The Kat Von D 'Shade and Light' eyeshadow palette was bought for me back in March by my sister (she did good), and it was forgotten about over the last few months and in one of my boxes of newer items I must use more. I knew I was going to love using it properly but seriously, this palette is so useful and versatile. Some stunning shades, some I don't normally wear at all and some which are just so easy to slap on yet they look so lovely. Yes it's an eyeshadow palette but, I've been using a couple of shades for face contour (gotta love a multifunctional product) which gives a really nice natural effect to the face. Silky, pigmented and easy to blend = perfection. 

#browsonpoint hashtag is used all over the internet and social media and now I feel I can use that hashtag. Having recently attended the Makeup Revolution Halloween party and was kindly gifted a few different items including this dark eyebrow shadow from Freedom. The pigmentation is fantastic and actually have to have a bit of a light hand when using it as it's that opaque and just solid colour. I tend to just go in with the darker one of the two and just apply differently across the brows mixing a light hand and normal. The packaging is quite standard, but, being small and so compact and includes a mirror! This will not just have your brows on point, but serious handbag/purse goals with a dinky mirror on the go.
 

I'd love to know your opinion on any of the products shown in the picture above and whether you like them or think I should try a different one. 

Thanks for stopping by on #jaidemas day 2!

xoxo

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…
