5 Minute Makeup Challenge

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know I am definitely not one to get ready in a rush. Anyone who knows me will probably tell you that my biggest flaw, is that it takes me over an hour and half to get out of the door on a daily basis so I thought it would be super fun to film this video and take on the 5 minute makeup challenge!

A  lot friends and viewers had been requesting me to do a video showing a quick and easy routine that they could use on daily basis, and whilst i am not sure I would walk out of the ouse like this, it definitely doesn’t get quicker than 5 minutes so I hope you enjoy the video!

APRIL Favourites and Unfavorites

I am back with a monthly favourites and in this one, to add into the mix also has a couple of disappointing products in there. With Spring on our doorsteps a lot of brands have been launching their new collections and I was very excited to try out a few of them, especially when it came to lip products, however after trying a few of these at the counters themselves I was quite disappointed to find they really weren’t anything like I was expecting them to be. So I thought I would share my thoughts with you, just so you can avoid spending money on things you might not end up using. I feel this can especially be the case when you are shopping online, as swatches on screen can be quite deceiving and you can’t really tell what a texture will be like without trying a product on.

Other than that I am sharing with you my usual beauty, skin care and fashion favourites for the month of April so I hope you enjoy this video, and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

Designer Handbag Collection | Louis Vuitton, Dior, AMQ, Ferragamo, Gucci & More

Seen as so many of you enjoyed my shoe collection video, I thought I would share with you today my designer handbag collection.

Handbags are my guilty pleasure, and I find no better way of treating myself than buying a one of these beauties for myself. I do only own designer handbags at the moment, just because they are pieces I cherish for a very long time and in a way I also feel like they are somewhat of an investment given most of them have quite good resale value, so I prefer to save up for one designer purchase than buy lots of cheaper ones.

From the time I graduated from university I would either get a handbag as a present from my family for a special occasion or I would save up to buy myself something I had been eyeing up for a while and this is really how I have built my collection. I also don’t hang onto bags that no longer really fit my style or that I feel would have better home somewhere else, so I do sell some pieces on Depop and Vestiare Collective (I will link my accounts below so you can check them out) and use this money to then put towards new handbags.

In this video I am sharing all my collection from shopping bags, to clutches so I hope you enjoy it and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

Closet/Wardrobe Tour

My current wardrobe set up is very far from what it would ideally be for me. I like to think I am quite organised and I do have a bit of OCD, so I love everything to be stored away and out of sight, but unfortunately in my house the wardrobe space is quite limited so things aren’t as well stored as I would like them to, but I have definitely learnt how to make the most out of a small space.

In this video I wanted to show you how I store everything from bags, to shoes and clothes and also share with you some tips I have learnt along the way of how to save space and organise things so that they are accessible but still tidy.

I am also showing you some of my old and current favourites, so I hope you enjoy this video and if you please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel.

Bridal Makeup Tutorial

Seen that Spring is here and wedding season is upon us, I decided to do a bridal makeup tutorial. Its a super classic timeless and very elegant look in my opinion, which I think would flatter most skin tones and face shapes. I have always thought that wedding looks should be fairly neutral because fashion changes and you don’t want to look at your wedding pictures 10 years from now and think ‘OMG what was I thinking!?’. So I have tried to keep the look quite simple and used makeup to enhance my natural features.

I am also sharing some tips and tricks of how to prep your skin before the big day and what you can do to make sure your makeup stays put for the whole day and doesn’t budge. This is also a great look if you have an important event coming up and you want your makeup to be super long lasting.

Dior Unboxing | Luxury Shoe Review

I love watching unboxing videos on Youtube, so today I thought I would share with you my very first unboxing video!I recently popped to Harrods and although this purchase may feel a little bit strange at this time of the year, when I saw these I just couldn’t resist. So in this video I’m reviewing and sharing with you my latest super indulgent treat from Dior.

Dior is a brand I have loved for years, and I could probably say that it is my favourite high end designer. I love what the brand stands for and the timeless elegance of all their pieces. It is a brand that has moved on with the times and have come up with some super trendy pieces, especially in eyewear fashion, but have also retained that classic and evergreen elegance specially in their fashion. I absolutely love their clothes, which make you feel elegant and sophisticated whilst still on trend. The same with their handbags, which I have a few of and to top it all off their customer service is absolutely amazing – you definitely feel like a princess every time you pop into one of their boutiques.

I also feel that Dior has remained a little more exclusive perhaps because its not as popular as brands like Chanel and you don’t see their accessories over and over again. So overall its a brand I love and this purchase is something I think I will cherish for a very long time.

I hope you enjoy it and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel.

Designer Shoe Collection | Ferragamo, Aquazurra, LV, Roger Vivier, Jimmy Choo, Louboutin, Dior & More

Apologies for not sharing any content with you last week, but if you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat you may know I was down with the flu. But I am back now and today I wanted to share with you my designer shoe collection, from boots to sandals, stilettos, flats and basically everything I own in terms of designer footwear.

This is by no means a video to brag, but given so many of you enjoyed my Evening Wear Collection video, I thought I would share with you my guilty pleasure of designer shoes.

I have very narrow feet so it is quite hard for me to find shoes that don’t slip out when they are the right length so when I find a designer that works well for me I tend to stick to it, so you will see in this video that there are quite a few shoes from Jimmy Choo, Dior and Ferragamo as the shape of these fits me perfectly.

I hope you enjoy checking out my collection and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel

£140 Foundation Worth It? | La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation

I have had a longstanding love affair with my Touch Eclat foundation by YSL. My wedding makeup artist  was the one who introduced me to it and I loved the way it made my skin looked from the first day I used it. The YSL Touche Eclat foundation for me has the perfect balance, its not oily but it leaves your skin glowing and has a great staying power. If you have been following this blog and my Youtube channel for a while you will know I have rarely used anything else in my tutorials, but now that I had completely run out of it it was time to try out something new.

Last week I tried out the Dior Diorskin Forever foundation and I have to stay that although it lasted well throughout the day and the coverage was good, I wasn’t overly in love with the super matte finish. If you want to find out more about how I got on with it here is the link to my video, where I do an in-depth review of this foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xw6AxqEl3fg.
Luckily I hadn’t purchased a full size bottle of the Dior Forever foundation, so I decided to try out the La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation. It is an eye wateringly expensive foundation, at a £140 a pop it does create a massive dent in your pocket, but especially if you have mature or dehydrated skin it is an absolute miracle product.
