We know you love love love a beauty post from one of our influencers so check out today’s favourite from Caroline over at You can call me Caz


I don’t know about you but normally I don’t really have time to do my makeup on a morning for work or if I am going out. Personally, I prefer to sleep than getting up early to do my face. But, hey that’s me! So when I saw these four beauty tips whilst flicking through a magazine I was intrigued, to say the least. I mean, if it is going to save me time and money then I am all up for it!

So I put them to the test…




A minute manicure.

I love painting my nails. From weird, quirky designs or just a simple colour, I find doing it very therapeutic. The only problem with it is leaving enough time for them to dry. Well, no more! By simply dipping your freshly painted nails in a bowl of cold water for about a minute then it will set the polish quicker. Where was this all of my life???

The sweet smell of perfume!

This tip is one of my favourites for sure. I am a sucker for perfume, I cannot get enough of some of their sweet smells. The only thing is that the smell soon fades away. However, by putting a bit of Vaseline or something similar on your skin beforehand and then splash a bit of perfume on that, it makes it last longer so you can smell its delight for a bit longer.

Homemade Skin treatment

I am ashamed to say it but I don’t really look after my skin. I have recently started moisturising and I don’t have time to make sure all my skin is soft. The only time I do look after my skin is when I have a shower every one or two days. So when I saw this little idea to make you skin all smooth and fresh, I had to give it a go. And to make it even better, all you need it two ingredients that most people have in their homes. Grounded coffee and olive oil. Using before you shower, buffering the mix with a mitt or hands, the caffeine helps your blood vessels, tightening and toning your tissue. I would say this was a success as my skin did feel a lot softer than it did before the shower so I would recommend this for anyone who needs a quick way to healthier skin.

Making me blush.

Final beauty tip now and it is all about blusher. If your skin is anything like mine then you will know the pain of having very pale skin… Basically looking like a ghost 24/7. So of course blusher comes in handy to make me look alive and it is a pain when you run out of it. But no need to panic anymore as you can use a lipstick instead. By dabbing a bit on your cheeks and blending it upwards and outwards then you will have rosy cheeks in no time.

And there you have it, four beauty tips that are definitely time savers when it comes to pampering ourselves!

Thanks for having me. I hope you have enjoyed this post and have a fabulous day!
