A Floral Bardot | Spain OOTD

Jaide Poppy

Every year I get out the same bag of summer clothes and add a few new pieces into the group, just to spice it up a bit and don't know about you but Primark is an obvious place to hit up. Being cheap, stocks current on trend items and tbf, the quality isn't that bad for what you pay. 

I really wish I could link my Primark clothes on here for you as I love this dress. The colours, the pattern and the fit is perfect. I wore this on an evening when my prickly heat was really bad and felt a bit self conscious. Comparison is a b***h and I'm a sucker and let myself do it often, maybe too often. Seeing all these beaut ladies on Insta in their bikinis with their perfect figures and perfect tans makes the pale English rose that I am feel kinda down. But having said this, this Bardot dress actually helped me to forget that around my chest and tops of my arms and enjoy the evening.

I'm sorry to break this to you, but the white bag is super old and from good old Primark. The whole wicker bag trend is booming right now and there's my mum telling me to sort through my hoarding stash. I love it and keeps my camera, purse and phone safe and sound. 

As you may already know I'm a huge Matalan convert and am pretty in love with their stuff right now. These shoes are one of my latest bargains. Tan, tie up and have that summer feel so I was one happy Jaide when I saw them for only £8! Like say what?!? I had my eyes on a pair incredibly similar from Marks & Spencer but never got round to buying them. But two days before I was supposed to jump on that plane I made a mad rush to Matalan, spotted them and had the biggest Cheshire Cat smile ever. 

Of course my earrings are the Jewellery Box hoops that I AM OBSESSED WITH and they are in my ears most days.

Every time I edit these holiday OOTD posts it makes me miss the holiday more and more. That chill life where you have no care or worries apart from when you'll next eat and drink. Isn't it just bliss? But hey ho here's to the next trip..... where shall I go? I'm thinking either Dublin or Amsterdam in the next couple of months. Vote in the comments!

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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
