L'oreal Paris pure clay bright face mask



Hands up if you love a face mask, I think I can speak for most of us, when I say no skincare routine is the same without a face mask thrown in at least on a weekly basis.

For the longest time I have loved a clay mask, I think they just work for me,  I have tried a few from the L'oreal pure clay range, but when a few weeks back I saw this new yellow one, I was like Oooo a yellow clay mask, I must try that immediately, because I love trying out something new or a bit different.

L'Oreal-Paris-Pure-Clay-Bright-Face-Mask  as you may of guessed from the name is a brightening mask, with not just clay, but also Yuzu lemon extract to brighten and even out skin. What I love about the L'oreal clay masks is you get a lot of product for your money, so you could buy 2 or 3 different masks to use for different concerns and they would last yonks. But onto this brightening one, first up its yellow which is a bit different, it applies really easily I use an old makeup brush to paint it on, it's not messy and doesn't get everywhere when applied, you can easily get on with something else in the 10 minutes it's on for. It also feels nice on the skin not drying or tightening and smells slightly of lemon but nothing overpowering. When it comes to removing I use warm water and a muslin cloth, and it rinses away pretty easily.

But what about your face Kate?

Well my face feels pretty damn lovely thank you, plus it makes me look glowy and fresh faced, what more can you ask from a ten minute treatment than to feel like you have a new, brighter, fresher complexion?

Pushing the barriers of my comfort zone


This year I have made a conscience decision to push the barriers of my comfort zone, in all areas of my life including how I dress. Suffering with anxiety often means I stay safe in my choices, not wanting to do things that I am uncertain of, do things a way I haven't before or just do something new, BUT I am working on that, taking small steps, never giving myself to big a challenge, where I would be set up to fail, instead congratulating myself on all achievements however small.

For me certain items of clothing are safe, people won't notice me wearing this, I won't draw attention to myself, people won't think I don't suit this, or am to old or the wrong body shape. That item for me is jeans. They are my comfort blanket, and probably always will be, but I am starting to try new things, I've branched into trousers and now this cute spotty skirt. In order to make this "safe" I toned down the girlieness with a band T-shirt, vans and a denim jacket. That's because I've never identified with being particularly girlie, and If I was to wear a girly outfit, I feel awkward like I would attract comments, probably not true, in reality I'm sure most people do not give a shit what I wear but the brain is a powerful thing.

Maybe one day I will get braver how I wear trousers and skirts, but for now small steps.

Birthday Wishlist



As I type this post it is 4 weeks until my birthday, I am by know means in any hurry to be a year older, but of course I am excited for the possibility of gifts. To be honest I think I deserve to be spoilt this year, I was involved in a car accident earlier this month, meaning I rightly need presents to help me get over the trauma, well that's the story I'm going for......hahaha

Trousers topshop, Trainers JD, Yellow top Topshop, white top Newlook, lip crayon Fabled, Pixi set cult beauty
I have gone for a classic mix of fashion and beauty, with a new lipstick top of my list, I literally cannot remember when I last had a new lipstick, I know it's a sad tale!  I am in love with the shade Red square from Nars, and really hope I receive it on my birthday.
Sticking with beauty I have wanted to try Pixi for the longest time and this set looked like a good way to give them a whirl.

Oooo Fashion my true love, this year I am trying to push the barriers of my comfort zone and have branched out into wearing more trousers and those Topshop ones are to die for. Of course there is always room for new tops and for Summer you can't go wrong with classic white, and I'm being drawn to yellow so I'm gonna go with it.

Lastly it wouldn't be a wishlist of mine if it didn't contain some footwear, my guilty pleasure, I have an obscene amount of shoes, but that doesn't stop me ogling new trainers and these ones look so retro and mores to the point ridiculously comfy.

I will of course keep you up to date on whether I have been a good girl and what gifts I get for my birthday.
