A Day At The Seaside


As I type this it's absolutely throwing it down with rain which is typical British summertime weather, however a couple of weeks ago we were blessed with gorgeous, warm, sunny weather here in the UK. To make the most of this I took a trip to the beach for the day..I sat in the sun, made sandcastles, swam in the sea, ate lots of ice cream and just generally had a lovely day which is why I wanted to share a few photos with you all.

I know these posts aren't everyones cup of tea and I'm not usually one to do lifestyle posts or share much of my life online, but I hope you enjoyed anyway!

How I Clean My Make-Up Brushes...

After talking to some of my girl friends the other day I realised that many of them didn't understand how important it is to clean their make-up brushes! It's not just make up that gets stuck in the brushes, lots of yucky things get in their too such as dirt and bacteria. As well as being important it's also really, really easy to clean your brushes and honestly doesn't take long, so I thought I'd share with you how I clean mine..
First of all I take some baby shampoo and of course all my dirty brushes..

Next I run the dirty brush under some luke warm water..

 I then squirt a tiny bit of baby shampoo onto my hand and gently work it into the brush..

 I then rinse out all the shampoo with some luke warm water..

Finally, I gently squeeze out any water left in the bristles and then lay them out to dry on a towel..

.. and that's how easy it is!
If you have any brush cleaning tips, tricks or advice then feel free to share below!

P.S. Whilst we're on the topic of brushes...I'll be doing a post on my new favourite brushes soon so be sure to look out for that!
