Country Pumpkin

There is something very refreshing about going to the countryside, there is something about the silence, the cosy pubs, the fresh air. I find it very grounding, and I very good way to get disconnected with the world and social media.

That is exactly what we did last week (apart from a few insta posts!) We spend the week in the Yorkshire Dales, it was so nice to just spend quality time and enjoy the little things in life, plus we weather was gorgeous.

During the week the dogs experienced a few new things such as waterfalls, cows & sheep, and we experienced some lovely cosy pubs and a gorgeous Sunday roast at Simonstone Hall (I would highly recommend) Every evening ended with the most gorgeous sunsets and we managed to get some lovely photos.

Charlotte Tilbury Goodies

Charlotte Tilbury is one of my most favourite make up brands. It is a brand that I don’t often shop from on a daily basis, it is still very much a treat splurge and something that I get a lot of joy from. There is something very special with shopping with Charlotte Tilbury.

I have a wedding coming up and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to purchase a few bits. I am thinking of doing a little ‘Get Ready with Me Wedding Guest Edition’, so you will be able to see these beauties in full swing.

I treated myself to Pillow Talk Lipstick at the beginning of the year and it is my go to every day lipstick, I absolutely love it!! For the wedding I am thinking of going a little more dramatic with the eyes and want to keep the lips more on the nude side.

Pillow Talk is a little more brown tone for what I was thinking of going for, so I picked up B.I.T.C.H Perfect from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. Of course, I needed a lip liner to match so I picked up Lip Cheat pencil in shade Pink Venus. These two are just beyond perfect and I am so excited to use these for the Wedding. The colours for me are the perfect pink nude!!

Eyebrows are my worse nightmare, I am so bad at doing my brows. Even though I do get them┬átinted and wax on a regular basis but when it comes to maintaining and enhancing them with makeup i struggling a lot. I find looking for brow products very overwhelming, there is just too much from pencils, to gels to tints, it’s a mind field.

As I was scrolling through all the gorgeous make up items, i stumbled across a brow kit called Flawless, Defined Brows which contains Eyebrow pencil & Sculpt and Shade Eyebrow Gel. I feel like these two products are pretty foul proof so (fingers-crossed) I should have fabulous brows!!
