Re-posting because this is super important!!
Its almost summer and this is a serious topic ladies and gentlemen, Sunscreen. Scientific evidence supports the benefits of using sunscreen to minimize short-term and long-term damage to the skin from the sun’s rays. Here is a quick list of sunscreen you can buy


Anthelios XL Ultra-light SPF 50+

I use this one, I find it isn’t to oily or greasy. I find that I can easy add it to my beauty routine.  It’s extremely lightweight has fast absorbing formula. It doesn’t leave the white residue some sunscreens do and I can apply it under my makeup.

Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50

Great light weight moisturizer adsorbs really quickly into the skin. Perfect for everyday wear as its not a heavy or oily on the skin however, it is the most expensive out of all my recommendations.dermalogica-age-smart-dynamic-skin-recovery-50ml

A new outlook on life

So it wasn’t long ago I was in a toxic relationship, not the kind that comes to mind when people say they were in a toxic relationship. This one was in the workplace. I was apart of an unhealthy work environment.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved most of my colleagues. I miss working with them dearly, they made the days bearable. Unfortunately, one of my colleagues was a royal donkey. There is nothing worse than your manager being narcissistic pain in the bottom. Whilst we tried HR mediation, it doesn’t work when your manager thinks he is better than whatever session/training, it also doesn’t help if the company doesn’t really want to address the problem but instead just wants to sweep it under a rug.

I stayed longer than I should have because of my work friends. They made every day enjoyable to be there, we had a real sense of team, I really enjoyed work with them and I miss the dynamic we had. Even more so when thinking about it I have total FOMO.

Finally, I made the move to change jobs and it was the best decision I have ever made. I have never been happier. I can honestly say I love my job. I love going to work, I love being at work and more importantly it gives me motivation to get up in the morning.

On the back of this I wanted to share with you the signs it’s time to move on.
The same signs apply for personal relationships too not just business.

Move

It’s never too late to take that step to get out of a toxic relationship and the earlier you do it the more you will thank yourself for doing it and the better off you will be.


The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.

Basic makeup tips

Here are some real easy makeup tips to add your routine, or to help you cut down your routine in summer.

In the summer months I only use a few products because wearing too much makeup in summer is just a bad idea. I also like to limit the amount of products so I’m not spending all day painting my face.


Start with SPF protection. Its summer, its sunny! I normally buy a BB or foundation with coverage however in summer I use a dedicated SPF cream because it’s much more sunnier and I find that I sit in the sun more often. I’m using SunSense Daily Face SPF 50+


Using a BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer is a quick & easy way to even out your skintone and its not to heavy. I’m currently using Garnier Miracle Skin Cream Day cream


Mineral powder over the top of your tinted moisturizer or BB cream will smooth out imperfections & cut back redness, giving your skin a beautiful satiny finish and set your “makeup”. I’m using Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover


Blusher is an instant face brightener, it warms the face. I’m using MAC pro longwear blush in Blush all day


In summer a long wearing eyeliner is always a good idea, I use the Maybelline  eyestudio master precise ink pen eyeliner. It has a really thin tip that I use to build up my look depending on how I feel that day


When applying mascara take care to layer it on to the lashes while they are still wet to avoid ‘clumping’. I’m currently using Maybelline Lash Sensational Black Pearl Waterproof. I like using waterproof in summer because you never know when I might drop by the beach or end up just sweating up a storm.


Light to medium lipsticks are the most flattering,  as bright colours exaggerate imperfections like yellow teeth & lines round the mouth. But Red lipstick stick can add that touch of glamour to your look. Remember to use a lip liner to prevent bleeding. I’m currently using Rimmel Dare to go bare! New Nude collection from Kate Moss in 42
