My second attempt at YouTube, super nervous – I ramble a.lot! I thought it would be a nice little addition to my blog, let me know what you think…xx
One rainy day I was Googling random beauty queries… (What on earth did we do before Google?)
I was researching matte red lips, regardless of my endless collection of lipsticks which can be seen here. I felt like there was something still out there – and it was my quest to find it.
Every now and then I get acrylic nails put on – I know, I know, they’re bad for your nails, but so is chocolate – we don’t stop eating that, do we?
Every artist needs a good set of tools to create a master-piece, (or something like that.) So everyone (who wears makeup) in my opinion NEEDS a good make-up brush.
I have taken a plunge and dived into the world of YouTube. I thought I ‘d try it, I love watching other youtubers, it’s great entertainment. Also, there’s just some information you can’t get across from writing. I love my blog very much and it is still my main thing. But I wanted to give it a go. Yolo and all that.
So a typical haul, in my opinion, kind of excessive…15mins of your life that you’ll never get back. (you’ve been warned)
If you do watch it please let me know what you think.
Shall I stick to writing and keep my high pitch voice off of the screen…? *nervous laugh*

When using skincare I need to be super careful, my skin is so unpredictable; I could have a really good days and really bad days using the same product. Undoubtedly left with me with a lot of trust issues. Read more »
Ever gone on holiday somewhere super sunny and after hours and days of sun bathing, you have the most gorgeous tan but your hair is, well…just a whole other story. That was me about 8months ago. I went Dubai (loved it!) but came back with really dehydrated and crispy hair. In search for fix it conditioner; a trip to Boots was in order.
Getting told off for hoarding a bunch of empty bottles has probably been the highlight of me preparing for this post.
When you have an empty product which is used down to every last drop, it creates an ‘I’m so good you want to use every bit of me’ statement. I love reading empties blogposts; I feel that if you’ve used an entire bottle you’re able to give a more accurate feedback on the pro’s and con’s.
When it comes to skincare I solemnly believe nothing beats natural ingredients. I found S.W Basics on cutecosmetics.co.uk who stock a limited range of their products. I’ve never really heard of them in the blogosphere (or I’ve completely missed it). I researched into the brand and they create products from 100% natural ingredients, in small batches, at local small farms – pure goodness! Amen to that.
I find it really hard to shop for beauty drugstore products. Can you believe that I’ve never brought a drugstore foundation before? I’m awful at colour matching myself and I have an orange/yellow based skin tone which I find is either quite hard to match or drugstore colour range are limited so I usually pay that little bit more and go to a premium brand counter.
However, the things that I do shop for in drugstore are (mainly) lip products, nail polishes and blushers.
There’s a couple of things from Sleek that I’ve been loving – thier products are so pigmented. Let me introduce the Blush by 3 palettes – basically 3 shades of blushes within the same ‘colour’ palette which work well together or separately.
