Why The Glossier Hype Is Real


Last year saw a lot of trends in the blogging world. We had the millennial pink situ, marble everything and of course who could forget.....Glossier. After waiting what felt like forever for this brand to come over to the UK (or at least be available in the UK), and lets be frank we went mental for it. It wasn't just the products themselves that got all the attention, it was the packaging that these beauties came in. Who would of thought bubble wrap would be in so much demand, and I for one am in love with my two pink bubble wrap sleeves that go everywhere with me. 



Glossier's price point isn't bad, however some might argue that for the money the products are quite small. Lets take the Glossier balm Dotcom, it's £10 for one tube which yes is pricey. It's not that bad when you compare to the likes of NUXE Rêve de Miel which is also £10 and 15ml, it's just the packaging is quite deceiving. 

I can hear you all now "but are the products actually good?". Well here's my run down on the products I have, and use on the regular because I actually genuinely love them (and how they look). 



Priming Moisturizer | Prepping my face with this bad boy in the mornings is so nice and works really well rubbed in with your fingers, or even with a nice soft brush. Especially good if you have dry skin as it's so moisture surged. Its quite a thin consistency and is quite cold which is lovely first thing to wake you up. I find it does the job perfectly for me as someone with very dry areas on their face, and works brilliantly with my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue as a light and dewy base. It states on the package that it's 'buildable hydrating creme' however hadn't used it myself in this way as of yet. 

balm dotcom |I've got to come clean to begin with. I'm addicted to lip products, especially lip balms, and it surprises me that I only have one flavour/scent to my name. This little tube of wonderfulness works as a bloody brilliant lip balm that has a super long lasting nourishing moisture to it. The packaging means it's small and perfect to take around anywhere with you, as is a perfect prep for your lips before a matte lip! Now... I'm actually placing an order for some more right now!

Generation G lipstick |Becuase honesty is the best policy, the shade Like that I have was a little underwhelming when I tried it for the first time. I didn't expect for it to be that sheer, so when applying I was a little taken back. Having said this, since it's been in my handbag it's vastly become a work staple to give my lips a natural bit of colour (as has been a saviour throughout the time I had the sniffles as I literally looked like a ghost). A very pinky my lips but enhanced shade, its great to slap on when your on the go or without a mirror. 

Boy Brow |Now, we're getting to the good stuff. As far as I'm concerned, all other brow products could be discontinued and I'd be ok about it. So quick and easy to use, makes my brows look fuller in minutes, and looks oh so cute in my collection. I hate to think of how many brow products I've tried over time, and have finally found one I love. It mimics your natural brow hair and brushes on small stroke of brown or clear gel, that has the after effect of you spending ages in front of the mirror getting dem brows on fleek. If you're in the market for a new brow gel that does it all in one, look no further! 

Cloud Paint |In the past I've never been much of a blusher person. Being a typical English rose, my cheeks can be a very questionable shade that I've even been asked what blusher I'm wearing for me to try around and say "its just my cheeks". hmmmmm, moving on. But of course, I had to give these a go. I pop a little bit of these beauties on a stippling brush and stipple and blend away leaving a beautiful either peach or pink glow (peach being my fav). The end result is very natural and glow worthy, which I can't wait to bust out in the warmer months. 

Haloscope | After having a little experiment with this highlights, I found I much preferred it as a cupids bow, nose highlight and brow highlight. I'm not a fan of how it looks on my cheeks and am sticking to a powder highlight for that, but other than that it's so pretty. A slight iridescent sheen to it, it really does catch the light. This is probably the only product out of the above that I won't rush to repurchase, but would always use it if I had one. 

So, to me Glossier is so worth the hype. I bought in to it and loved it. All I can say is that you just don't know until you try the brand out, as everything is suitable for everyone. 

Try Glossier and get 10% off with my code.

Speak soon you lovely lot!

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
