Travel with me … Corfu 🇬🇷

So me and my partner in crime decided to book a VERY last minute get away and when I menna last minute I mean last minute. We booked it on the Tuesday and flew on the Thursday! How crazy but it worked out in the end.

We stayed in Acharavi in Corfu, which was such a little gem. Full of bars and restaurants, entertainment and a beautiful turquoise sea. So pretty ! We stayed for 4 nights self catering so we could explore the area, Roda was a 15 minute walk just from our hotel along the beach which had more endless bars and restaurants as well. We were spoilt for choice!! Heres an insight into some of the food and drink we enjoyed…

Our short stay actually felt really long as we were there for 5 days and got good flights so wasn’t wasting any tanning time! It was absolutely boiling there- 33 degrees everyday! Sweating but I loved it, especially because the sun had gone away from England 😂!

Most of our time we spent walking, drinking cocktails or sleeping on the beach 😂 in the day of course. We had the most amazing time and great hotel for such a last minute bargain! It was so cheap to eat and drink out; a beer cost €2 and a cocktail around €5! Also any more at tea time didn’t cost anymore than €9 pp. CHEAP!! We loved our short stay and would definitely recommend the area for tourists. Here’s a few snippets of the beach..

Not to forget.. Corfu’s sunsets are Gorgeous! Take a look.. STUNNING


Also here’s a quick insight into my outfits..

Shoes – Mispap

Top 10 Make up/ Beauty Tips

Make up is a real passion of mine. I love matching different looks to the outfit colours I’m wearing or even wearing a minimum make up look for everyday. Here’s a few tips I’ve learnt along the way:

  1. MOISTURISER

https://media.debenhams.com/i/debenhams/121620001799/ultra_facial_moisturizer_250ml.jpg?w=768&h=768&fmt=pjpeg&qlt=90

Applying moisturiser on your face before make up application makes such a difference! I swear when I first started out doing make up I never even thought of moisturising before!

It allows for a solid moisturised base which makes the make up especially foundation look flawless and helps avoid cakey-ness

2. EYE PRIMER

When doing eye make up, applying a primer on your eyelid allows for a smoother and easier blend of eyeshadow. I usually use just a concealer over my eye lid and I definitely think it does the job- no need to buy the expensive tiny bottles of eye primer when you’ve got a concealer!

3. BLEND BLEND BLEND

This is a game changer. Make sure you blend your eyeshadow and then blend a bit more!

Use a transition shade ( 1-2 shades darker than your skin tone) to blend over any harsh shadow lines to create a seamless blend!

4. INVEST IN YOUR TOOLS

Having the best tools for make up doesn’t mean spending a fortune. You can find amazing quality now at drug stores so there’s no need to splurge out to make your make up skills better!

Investing in a good eyeshadow blending brush was the best investment I made; my eyeshadow blends so much easier and It takes me half the time it did when I had a rubbish eyeshadow brush.

5. SPONGES!

Buying a sponge to apply foundation/concealer is a game changer! Honestly since I got myself a sponge my foundation applied and looks so much better & seamless!

No more stroke marks from brushes and you can even use them to apply loose powder to bake or to apply cream highlight! There’s endless uses of a sponge and here’s my favourite:

img_2286Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge.

This sponge is so good and so affordable! Only £5,99 at Boots and they last for sooo long! Definitely an investment.

6. EYELASH CURLERS

These are great for more natural looks. An eyelash curler makes your eyelashes go from 0-100 it’s incredible, makes your eyelashes 10X longer and fuller when applying mascara afterwards.

I swear by eyelash curlers and whenever mine have gone missing my make up just isn’t the same! My eyelashes are so much shorter when I don’t use an eyelash curler so I definitely believe everyone should own one!

7. USE OF COLOURS

So I have more on the green side of colour eyes and definitely believe you can use different colour eyeshadow/eye make up to flatter your own colour eyes. For example my green eyes seem to be flattered more when I use browns, reds, golds and green colours on my eyelid!

Experiment with colour! See what suits your eye colour best and it will become your go-to eyeshadow colour!

8. EXFOLIATE  YOUR LIPS

I’ve found when I exfoliate my lips with a lip scrum my lipstick goes on so much nicer! Forget the days of crusty lips or cracked lips after using a liquid lip stick!

If your like me and constantly get chapped/dry lips then you’ll definitely benefit from a lip scrub! My favourite is by LUSH:

img_2287LUSH -Bubblegum  Lip Scrub

This is definitely worth the money as it lasts for so long and makes your lips feel a million dollars afterwards!

9. KEEP CLEAN

I definitely believe the key to having flawless make up is by using clean tools. Once brushes have been used a few times the make up clogs up and doesn’t allow the brush to blend make up as best as it can do.

This rule applies especially with eyeshadow brushes. Just try it – clean your brushes regularly and you will see an improvement in how easier and how much better your eyeshadow blending will be!

10. DONT NEGLECT

Your lower lashes! To tie a good eyeshadow look together you need to not forget or neglect the lower lash!

Having a good blend of colour on the lid and lower lash allows for a seem less looking eye look and creates a blown out appearance which everyone is craving for!

That’s my top 10 beauty tips! Hope you enjoyed❤️

5 Top Tips to taking a great Instagram pic 📸

1. Lighting

Lighting is the foundation of a good photo. Understanding how to use light is the first and most important rule of getting great photos using only your phone.

Overcast days are perfect for shooting portraits because the light is even. As a photographer, you always want even lighting on your model and in the background.

2. Use The Rule of Thirds for Portrait Photography

Turn on the gridlines for your camera or smartphone. You’ll have two vertical and two horizontal lines that will help you create more interesting compositions.

3. Don’t Chase Likes

We like when people like our photos. It feels good. And it seems like you are accomplishing something.

But in the scope of things, a “like” on any social media platform means very little. Yes, it can have a positive impact if the post goes viral. But otherwise, most people don’t care how many likes something has.

Instead, when you think about how to take Instagram photos, note which photos are getting comments. Make note of what you’re posting when you’re follower count is going up.

4. Leave Yourself Some Room

If you’re new to photography, then cropping may be your best friend. It allows you to improve the visual composition. Place the focus more effectively where you want it.

5. Don’t Over-Edit

Touch up tools can add a more professional look to photos. You can use filters to create a more consistent look. Editing can be how to take Instagram photos to the next level.

But be careful not to overdo it. Not only is the time waste a huge strain on your marketing budget. Most editing makes very little difference to your followers.

In fact, over-edited pictures can have the opposite effect of seeming fake, inauthentic and focused on the wrong things.

My dream destinations 🌍

Wow where do I start, I want to go everywhere!

I think Mykonos and Santorini are definitely the places to be at the minute. Mainly due to the amount of celebs & company’s shooting there as it’s such a pretty place..

White wash buildings against beautiful blue pools and the sea, just read ‘tranquility’ to me.


The Maldives

I mean. Just look at it, living on a bungalow hut on the sea basically. What more can you ask for ? Just imagine waking up there WOW, I’d feel like I was still sleeping, would definitely have to pinch myself a few times😂!


img_2264
Dubai

Now this is a holiday full of luxury, even in the bathrooms of the hotels look AMAZING! I’d love to go here and see the luxury of it, not forgetting the white sands and absolute scorching hot temperatures, sky riser hotels looks picturesque at night when there lit up I mean wow…


I think I’m getting carried away thinking of this one. Snap out of it Gemma 😳

I mean I’ve been to some amazing places & anywhere that’s hot will do me, but I’m allowed to dream and pray one day I’ll be posting pictures of me at these places! ONE DAY…

Mispap Clothing Haul 👙

So I recently picked up a few items from Mispap, I mainly needed things for summer everyday or for a holiday I have due in September. I find Mispap a very reliable website which is always up to date with new fashion tends; however a lot of there clothing isn’t actually made by Mispap it’s by other companies which use Mispap to sell there product too. So if your wondering why in some pictures there isn’t a Mispap ticket then that’s why.

Crochet bikini

Let’s get started, first of I choice this colourful and vibrant crochet bikini;

Crochet bikini pastel

The pastel colours of this bikini is a bold bikini that will definitely POP with a sun tan !

Cycle shorts

Next off, I decide to purchase some cycle shorts as they are so in trend and I don’t even own any!

Cycle shorts I picked them in the colour black so they would go with everything! But I will almost definitely be buying more in different colours! There so comfy and versatile, I love them 😍

Playsuit

Now you can never go wrong with a playsuit to just shove on when your in a rush and I desperately needed another one.

Playsuit

This playsuit is almost a satin finish with bright pinks yellow and blues in a gorgeous animal print.

Black denim shorts

So ever since Sarah Ashcroft brought out her new summer range with In The Style I knew I needed some paper bag waste shorts;

Denim shorts black

I chose these in Black as I actually don’t own a pair of black denim shorts so I need them plus they are sooo flattering! They also did them in white and blue but sadly they were out of stock in my size but I will definitely be purchasing them In the future.

Crochet playsuit

So another playsuit, but this is a lot different to any I have got before as it’s black and crochet. This screams festival vibes but I will still wear it here in the U.K. or abroad on a summer night.

Crochet black halter neck playsuit

I think I’d pair this with a black belt and some black espadrilles and rock the all black vibes.

So that’s all I got from Mispap and I love them all. I highly recommend this website especially if your looking for something different or on trend!

So it’s finally summer time and so far we in the U.K. are having the best one we’ve had in years! So my bikinis have come back out as I’m spending most days sunbathing 🌞🌞! I absolutely LOVE bikinis they are my favourite item of clothing to buy! It’s just so addictive so my collection is HUGE. To keep things simple here is my newest additions to my bikini collection;

1. KHAKI DANA BIKINI from Unique Avenue

For £20 this bikini is so versatile I like styling it the way the model has as well as just a bandeau bikini ( by wrapping it round ). I’ve wore this bikini in September and I took it on holiday in May and realised I left the pants at home !!! I was soooo annoyed with myself as it’s one of my favourites.


2. – TATUM WHITE TIE UP SWIMSUIT from Mispap

I fell in love with this bikini as soon as I tried it on! I got it for £20 and it fits perfect! I’ve not wore it on holiday yet but I can’t wait until I can!


3. WHITE & PINK CUT OUT SWIMSUIT FROM IN THE STYLE

– So this swimsuit was £17.99 online and I have wore it on holiday before and I loved it! It flattered me so much the colours and so comfortable to wear. It’s by a collaboration with Sarah Ashcroft and In The Style.com !


4. RED LATTICE FRONT SWIMSUIT FROM NEW LOOK

This swimsuit is definitely for those who want to hug in that waist! I couldn’t believe it once I tried it on my waist looked 5X skinnier!! How is that possible ?! But it is, it’s comfy as well and the bright red definitely compliments a tan well.

So that’s my recent purchases! Thanks for reading.

5.

Desi Perkins, Quay , Sunglasses
Quay Sunglasses – Desi Perkins

Blonde hair care routine 👩🏼

So I personally am I Natural dark blonde but I have had my hair died light as well as when I go on holiday my hair goes a lot lighter too. Here a few tips and insights in my hair care routine and how I keep my blonde looking fresh!

  1. Purple shampoo – So to wash my hair I sometimes use a purple shampoo. This neutralises my hair and gets rid of them brassy tones I sometimes get especially when I’ve been in the sun! My favourite purple shampoo is PRO:VOKE Touch of silver colour care shampoo as I feel it works the best for my hair. However I do sometimes use Charles Worthington ColourPlex Toning ultra shampoo which is just as good just abit pricier.
  2. Blonde shampoo- Now when my blonde is dulling abit or I’m starting to get roots; I go for a blonde shampoo. My favourite blonde shampoo by far is John Frieda Go Blonder Shampoo as it really brightens my blonde. A cheaper alternative which is near enough as good is Crieghtons Sunshine Blonde shampoo.
  3. Toner- So when my hair is in a desperate need of removing brassiness I go for a purple toner. My favourite is PRO:VOKE Touch of silver Brightening shampoo / toner. This is so cheap and definitely does the job at removing brassiness.
  4. Conditioner- I love a good conditioner to make my hair feel moisturiser and less dry. My go to conditioners are usually blonde conditioners, my favourite is John Frieda go blonder conditioner. This is by far the best for blonde hair as it keeps the ends of my hair looking bright and blonde as well as healthy.
  5. Hair mask- In my spare time I love to wind out and relax apply a face mask and a hair mask. My favourite hair mask at the moment is Ultimate blends coconut milk dry hair mask. This mask leaves my hair looking and feeling a million dollars!
  6. Serum- After I’ve washed my hair, before drying I love applying a serum. Serums make my hair feel a lot smoother and gets rid of any frizziness. My go to serum is the Tressemee Smooth Salon Smooth Serum!
  7. Heat protection- I always apply heat protection before applying heat to my hair. I try to protect my hair as much as I can when using heat; the heat protection spray I’m using at the minute and loving is the TRESemmé heat protection spray.
  8. Heat application- So I generally try and apply heat to my hair as least as I possibly can. I usually try and style my hair whilst wet such as putting it in plaits to curl it or to brush it so it dries as straight as possible.
  9. John Frieda Blonde lightening Spray- So when my hair becomes too grown out and my roots are ridiculous I pick up the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go blonder lightening spray . This spray is amazing ! I apply it to wet hair where I need to be lighter ( usually roots ) and then apply heat and straight away I can see a difference! My roots go lighter and my blonde is brighter!
  10. Tangle teezers- I swear by Tangle teezer brushes! My hair brushes so much easier and I definitely notice my hair falls out a lot less when brushing. The tangle teezer brushes have special bristles which allow to brush hair knots with less damage to the hair strands. I don’t use any other brush !

So there is my top tips and what I use to maintain my hair! All these work well for me and help my hair yay as healthy as possible!

WHATS IN MY MAKE UP BAG ?! 🤷🏼‍♀️

So first of all I bet your thinking whilst reading this.. wow how is her make up is so clean! Think again, I definitely went through a few make up wipes before taking these pictures because I mean who’s make up/bag isn’t filthy ? 🤣

But anyway here’s a sneak peak into what I literally have in my make up bag every day. These products are my GO TO! I swear by every single one of them and I am OBSESSED with them at the minute 😍!

Let’s get started! Here is my make up bag;

Make up bag filled with make up from river island

I got it gifted to me by a friend within a multi pack of bags from River island. This one is a great size and fits in perfectly all the make up I mostly wear or mainly reach for!

LETS TALK TOOLS!

A sponge;

Beauty sponge in pink

First off is my main applicator for anything face! A sponge; I got this one from Primark and it is definitely just as good as other more expensive/branded ones I’ve tried! Also it’s lasted a lot longer; the others when I’ve washed them just rip or start to! Where as this is as cheap as chips and lasting forever! I love it!

My face brushes;

84522E08-674F-4531-AD43-534ED7F336CE

Here’s my two top face brushes. There from Real Techniques ! The orange one is named a ‘Setting Brush’ and the pink one is named a ‘Blush Brush’ and I use them for just that! Blush brush I use for blusher  as well as bronzer and the setting brush I use to set my face with powder or to brush away harsh bronzer/blusher.

Eye lash curlers;

B964A09D-3CF0-4924-BF38-50E62729A269

So I use eyelash curlers every day! I definitely can’t do my make up without them. They curl my lashes and make them look extra long and fluffy and I can definitely tell a difference when I’ve not used them! I buy them from either a supermarket or a drug store.

My go-to eye brushes..

My go to eyeshadow brushes

In order this is my ZOEVA  227, Sigma E40 and just a plain unbranded flat concealer  brush. I use my ZOEVA and Sigma the most out of my whole brush collection as I think these two are by far the best brushes to blend eyeshadow with! Then I use my flat concealer brush to calve out my eyebrows to make them look EXTRA 🤣.

Brows brows brows…

In my make up bag is two brow products^ which I use on a everyday basis. The brow pencil I go for is by natural collection at Boots In a medium brown colour. The brow gel I typically use is a clear mascara  by COLLECTION at Boots. Both of these products worked together give me a natural looking eyebrow!

LETS PAINT THAT FACE!

Primer;

ABC69118-3EA0-4C0C-AC8B-B604E6624CB4

This WOW skin by seventeen is my favourite primer as it makes my skin so glowing and healthy looking! I also use this as a cream highlighter which is how I use it most days. To use it as a cream highlighter I apply it to the tops of my cheeks, Cupid’s now and nose! It makes my make up look less powdery and means I don’t need to apply as much powder highlight either!

Concealer;

This collection Lasting perfection concealer is raved about so much by beauty influences on YouTube and it is definitely worth the hype. The best full coverage concealer I’ve ever tried and for only £4.19 it’s amazing! I’ve been through so many of these already and I currently mix two shades to get the perfect colour to match my skin tone.

Translucent powder;

My go to translucent powder is by Natural Collection at Boots. I use this to set my under eyes or where’ve I have applied concealer. It’s a great powder for setting and gives no flash back! What more can I ask for ?!

Bronzer …

The bronzer that is always in my make up bag recently is by St tropez it’s a very shimmery bronzer which I am loving at the minute! It makes me look so much healthier and a lot more tanned which Is more than I can ask for 😍!

Blusher…

My go-to blusher is by Make up Obsession which I found at Boots! At the time I had been looking everywhere I mean everywhere for a peach blusher and it was so hard to find a nice one ! Then I came across this, which I definitely will be re purchasing as it’s a great colour not to glittery and adds that nice healthy rosey  look to my cheeks ! 💕

What do I use to make me GLOWY?

I’ll tell you the answer to my prayers when I asked for an amazing highlight…

BOOM hello glow. It’s the which is by Anastasia Beverley Hills, this is American brand so I buy mine from Beauty Bay.com. This highlighter is by far my favourite highlighter! I typically use the two lighter shade which are AMAZING. They glow to the gods as well as staying on all night & day 😍! Highly recommend this!

ONTO THE 👀!

Eyeshadow..

This palette is by REVOLUTION found at Superdrug it is the RELOADED iconic division palette. This is always in my make up bag because it has such a unique range of shades I can do sooo many looks with this. Ever since I bought this I have used it none stop and it has definitely pushed away my old favourite eyeshadow palettes!

Mascara;

Maybelline Mascara

My favourite go-to mascara is the Lash Sensational mascara in black by Maybelline. After trying so many cheaper mascaras I still always result back to this, it’s not overly priced but you can get cheaper; however I think this is definitely worth the money. I have re bought this so many time now & I definitely will in the future!

LIPS 👄!

My favourite lip combo…

This is a lip liner by MAC in the colour SPICE and a lipstick bun MAC in peach-stock. I spotted this on someone and asked them what they was wearing on there lip because I loved it; and they told me these two products. I immediately went out to buy it but it was out of stock so I was trying for weeks to find it and finally they came in stock so I just had to ge them! These two products together create a gorgeous nude lip perfect for any skin tone! This is now my signature nude lip and that’s why it’s in my make up bag because I’m always wearing it 😂!


So that’s all I’ve got in my make up bag at the minute! I recommend each and every product I have talked about & I’ll update if anything changes!

Thanks for reading 😇!

MY MORNING & NIGHT SKINCARE ROUTINE 🧖🏼‍♀️

So I have certain skin care routines I try my best to stick to everyday and every night. If your interested in how I maintain and moisturise healthy looking skin then just keep reading…

MORNING ROUTINE ☀️

So the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is brush my teeth and wash my face with my cucumber face wash from Boots in their Boots essential range; which only costs £1.75 which is an absolute bargain for how good it makes my skin feel! It cleans out my purse and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and ready for make up application

After that I then apply my favourite moisturiser Vaseline Aloe Sooth Lotion for £3.65 and I mix in a few drops of my favourite serum which is a Vitamin C serum from Superdrug for £4.99! Both very affordable and last a long time- highly recommend this combo as it makes my skin look and feel so healthy and glowy!

Thats all I do for my morning routine unless Im being lazy that day I’ll apply a sheet mask or under eye masks 🧖🏼‍♀️!

NIGHT ROUTINE 🌚

So firstly at night I take of whatever make up I’ve been wearing with a cotton pad and my Simple Cleansing Lotion which is around £4. I use this to cleanse my skin and remove any make up it definitely does the job! To remove any access oils or dirt I use the matching Simple Facial Toner for £3.49. This toner does amazing skills are taking of dirt and make up you probably think wasn’t even there!

After removing my make up, I wash my face with water and either apply the same moisturiser I use in the day or I use my Aloe Vera gel from Holland and Barret for £5.99 but I usually get it on offer! This gel is amazing for when I’ve been in the sun and even more amazing when I’ve had a bit of a break out. I swear by it! It helps reduce redness of spots and blemishes and helps the to heal as well! By far my favourite and most highly recommended product out of all of my skin care!

To finish of I apply any lip balm or Vaseline on my lips to keep them moisturised and plump for when I wake up in the morning!

I hope this helped for anyone looking for any new skin care products as I swear by all of these!
