The Body Shop Vegan Brushes | Beauty


Make up brushes can either help to apply products flawlessly, or can, muck up your look causing streaks and so on. I feel that a base applied with poor quality brushes, leaving streak and brush marks is up there with cakey base as two of my pet hates. And when you get an eyeshadow brush that just doesn't grab the shadow and help to apply smoothly or help to blend, it's just so disappointing and creates way too much work for my liking. So, what were these beauties like? 


These brushes from The Body shop are firstly 100% vegan and cruelty free, and the quality of them is spot on. Nice to hold and all do their job well, whilst looking very stylish and a bonus is that they look just as beaut in pictures. The bristles haven't shed during use or when I've washed them which is what you want, and it lets you know they're well made and will last well through continuous use. 


I've already got my favourites out of the bunch and that have replaced my, what used to be my go to brushes. The N93E (The Buffing Brush) is amazing for stippling and pushing in your base of choice. I'm not a fan of using this brush for buffing into the skin as I find the finish isn't as good as pushing the product in. Because its quite a dense brush and a small surface area, it helps to get a flawless finish by pressing into the skin. It does take a bit longer to apply your base as the brush is smaller than normal, but, so worth it as the finish is lovely. 


Other ultimate favs for me are the N91W and the N93E (Both shadow brushes). The flat shader has been great to press in shadow under the bottom eyelash line to help create an under smoke. Something I've never really been a fan of before, but haven't stopped since I started using this one and can't believe what it adds to an eye look.

The crease brush allows you to pack, blend and everything in between. Such a multi-use item that it's perfect for travelling, but, I just can't stop reaching for it. The bristles are soft and help to blend the edges beautifully and seamlessly, helping to make your eyeshadow look pro.


In all honesty, I was unsure of what these would be like before they arrived. For some reason I thought they'd be poor quality and wouldn't be near that of Spectrum (who also product vegan brushes). But, I will swallow my thoughts as these have really impressed me in particular being the three I've outlined. The other two brushes aren't ones that I've used much of, but I'm keeping at them and everyone and their mum seem to use highlighter except for me!

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…
