Brow Tips From My Mum | With Lipcote


As the well known quote goes "mum knows best" and since my mum shared her best tip with maintaining brows, I've lived by it to this day! 

Living and growing up in a household of girls meant that makeup sharing, beauty lessons and overall girly chats about our face happened on the regular. When I first discovered that I could experiment with how I looked, mum would let me mess around with her lipsticks and I knew I loved how wearing makeup and looking after myself made me feel. I still raid my mums makeup stash, and her tips and tricks seem to be never ending and someone I go to for beauty advice on a regular basis. 


Brows, eyebrows, slugs, monobrow, bushybrows whatever you call em they're so unique to each person and alter your face dramatically. 

Looking back over photos way back then the trend seemed to be thin barely there eyebrows. I used to over pluck my brows so much during my teenage years, because in school you'd be picked on if they were too big. Thank goodness for Cara Delevingne sharing the love for big brows. 

The most important piece of advice my mum gave me was to "treat your brows like sisters and not twins". I'm sad to admit that I didn't take any notice of this piece of advice until I was late in my teens, as you're probably very familiar with the I'm a teenager and I know best attitude. My brows are far from being similar to each other and over time I've learnt to embrace that about them, I stick to following the natural shape of them and keep them tidy and don't take much off them at all. 




There are so many beauty tricks and tips that my mums shared with me over the last 20 odd years, but to treat each brow as an individual has made the most impact in my beauty regime. I'm so thankful that I eventually listened to my mums advice because I've actually learnt to love my brows for what they are instead of over plucking the heck outta them, to the point that you have no actual brows.



Lipcote have always been a brand my mums used and I've used to lock in that lip colour all day/evening, but as soon as they brought out their Browcote I knew I had to share it with her as I knew she'd appreciate it as an avid embracer of eyebrows. We now all use Lipcote and Browcote, myself, mum and sister to lock our looks in place as we love a strong brow look. 

Basically I wanted to share with you guys the little golden nugget that you may already know but just incase you don't, please love your features and work with them and not against them. Remember, your eyebrows, slugs, whatever you name em are sisters and not twins. If you've got one thats more curved and the other square, try different products out and see what works for you and no over plucking allowed. 

Share a picture on your Instagram using the hashtag #mamatoldme and tell us what little piece of advice, tips or tricks you've been passed by your mum. There's prizes to be won so make sure to get involved!

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…

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

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…
