First holiday booked to Gran canaria in July, this is my first holiday with Craig, we have been together for 7 years and this is our first proper holiday away!

Eek super excited I have a new bikini, and some new outfits.  I will probably do a post after the holiday with pics 😎


A gate of night By Bella Forrest

Welcome back to The Shade…

Derek and Sofia are finally enjoying a well-deserved break. Staying at a resort with good food, sun and sea, Sofia is thrilled to witness Derek’s re-introduction to the human world.

They would almost be mistaken for a normal young couple, if it were not for the red-eyed monster lurking in the shadows and watching their every move, waiting for his signal to pounce…

Note: Derek and Sofia’s story completes in Book 7 of the series: A Break of Day, and the characters embark on entirely new adventures from Book 8.

Hello all and welcome back to my blog.  I bring you a new book which I have not read yet, but it is currently sitting on my desk ready to be read next.

This book is number 6 in the A shade of vampire series by Bella Forrest.  I would say this series is more for young adults, with paranormal, fantasy and mild romance.
This book is available on Amazon for £7.99 in paperback which is a bargain and has a 4.8/5 star review by 259 people.

Hello and welcome back to my blog, if you have liked my post please do not forget to follow  this blog and Like my Facebook page for regular updates ❤

Today I bring you my new favourite and holy grail primer by Urban Decay Cosmetics.  This primer is focused on minimising/perfecting pores, and improving overall complexion.

Minimize the look of pores and fine lines! Smooth on a little Primer before foundation (or on bare skin) for a soft-matte finish without a greasy feel. Smooth on a little Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion before foundation (or alone!) to totally minimize the look of pores and fine lines. The velvety, paraben-free formula flashes down to a soft-matte finish, without the greasy, heavy feel sometimes associated with foundation primers. The result? Flawless skin with an airbrushed look and feel. Foundation applies smoothly, evenly, and won’t fade away. Ideal for oilier skin, but dry complexions who want pore perfection will love it, too.

All I have to say about this product is YES!
It is the best primer I have used so far and I do not think I will be changing to any others any time soon.  This primer has worked wonders on my skin.
The background on my skin is; I have rather large pores on my nose, between my brows and across my chin, you could say my whole T zone has large pores.  This has been a problem in the past as they stand out and I become very self conscious thinking people are just staring at my face, in my problematic areas.
Since using this primer I have noticed my pores are minimized straight after application.  I do not dab the product into my skin, but instead lightly rub it across the areas I need it most, which is the T zone and a little on my cheeks.  Now with this product a small pea sized amount will do the job!
After applying I then move straight onto my foundation which I apply using a beauty blender.  I find that my skin looks matte throughout the day and my foundation stays put for a good 6-8 hours if I do not set my foundation.  I have had no issues with my foundation sliding across my face or coming off since using this primer.

You can buy this product online if you’re unable to find a local store. The primer looks like it will give colour to the skin but infact it is completely clear and leaves no shine behind. I was able to buy mine in House of Fraser.  This retails at £19.50 and it is a very large size.  I bought mine the beginning of April and I still have loads left, and I use this nearly every day.  To me that is a an amazing deal.
I give this a 5 star review.

If you have tried this primer or any other brands that help reduce oil and pores on the skin, then please feel free to leave the name of the brand and the product in the description bar below.  After all we are all here to learn and improve.
