A Holiday In a Bottle | Tom Ford Private Blend Fragrances

Perfumes are not something I usually write about on my blog because I find it very hard to describe fragrances, but I have recently got my hands on one of Tom Ford’s exclusive fragrances and I had to tell you about it because honestly I have never experienced anything like it before.

I think the first time I smelt one of Tom Ford’s fragrances was once browsing around Heathrow for a present for my husband. The sales assistant mentioned that their Private Blend fragrances were all unisex, which I must say definitely sounded like a bonus because it meant we could both use it, and given I don’t usually like very girly floral or overly sweet scents I thought this sounded like a fragrance right up my street, and boy was I right!

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.

Spring Fashion Haul | Net-A-Porter, Zara, AD ….

So Spring is finally here, well sort of – this English weather has not been on its best behaviour, but there have been a few days where the sun has been shining so I decided to start getting my Spring wardrobe ready and since I was going away on holiday to Malta it was the perfect excuse to get myself a few more summer bits.

Spring trends have really got me excited because there are so many crisp poplin cotton style tops and shirts which are one of my favourite things, and given I was on the hunt for a new white top (you can never have too many of those!) I checked out what Zara and Adolfo Dominguez had and found quite a few options! I have to admit that I have also been very impressed with Zara’s collection for Spring and actually since filming this video I have picked up a few other bits because they have so many classic, versatile yet still trendy pieces this season! I have also been after a pair of boyfriend jeans for a while, and I purchased a pair from Net-A-Porter which you would have already seen featured in this blogpost.

So this one really is a mixed bag with some high street and some designer pieces, and some of the stuff featured is actually on sale right now so well worth checking it out! I hope you enjoy this video and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube 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.

BY TERRY Sun Designer Palette | Product Review

By Terry is a brand I discovered very recently and I have only tried a couple of their products but I have to say so far I have been extremely impressed by every single one. For a long time I had heard so many Youtubers talk about their products but unfortunately the seriously hefty price tag always stopped me from purchasing them, as I wasn’t sure if I wanted to splurge so much money on something I wasn’t sure I would even like.

Their products tend not be anything revolutionary or that other brands don’t have, however after having tried them I can say their quality is incredible and in most cases nothing like what other brands have to offer, so I can say that so far the price tag is somewhat justified.

The first product I tried from this brand was a highlighting powder, very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, but better! It is their Imperlious Voile de Pearle, and although its meant to be a highlighter I actually use it as a setting powder. I did a full blogpost on this item which I will link here.

GUCCI Unboxing

If you follow me on Instagram and snapchat you will probably know I have headed out on holiday to Malta, but before I left I did a little bit of cheeky shopping and seen as most of you loved my last unboxing video, I thought I would share what I had bought this time by unboxing it on camera once again! It is something I have been in two minds about buying for quite a while, because I feel like it is quite a trend based purchase and I wasn’t sure it was worth the investment.  But last week I finally took the plunge and headed to Gucci to get these. I hope you enjoy this video and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel

Best & Worst Of Charlotte Tilbury | Brand Review

Charlotte Tilbury has to be my all time favourite makeup brand and if you have been following this blog for a while this will not come as a surprise. I think I don’t have a single tutorial where I haven’t used at least one of her products. In this video I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the brand, and show you some of my favourite products and also tell you about some which I haven’t really grown to love.

This is one of the rare brands where I love pretty much every single product and while my absolutely standout product has to be her eyeshadow palettes, I think there a lot of great products in this brand and I think that it really shows that a very talented and experienced makeup artist is behind it.

I hope you enjoy this video and if you please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

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.

Saint Laurent Medium Monogram Tassel Handbag | My Guilty Pleasure

My love for handbags is something you must surely be aware of by now! I honestly could never have enough and as of late I have been loving the smaller kind and in this post I wanted to share with you my latest indulgence – the Saint Laurent Classic Medium Monogram Tassel bag in midnight blue python. This stunning beauty doesn’t come cheap at over £1,900 but compared to other designer hand bags I have to say it is pretty reasonably priced and it is so beautiful that once I saw it I just couldn’t help myself.

IMG_2249.JPGI have to admit it wasn’t a complete impulse buy, because I had the same bag in black suede for a couple of years and I recently sold this on Vestiare Collective because the suede was a little faded and I fancied an upgrade. Initially I was thinking of getting something completely different altogether, but after browsing a lot of different brands I decided that I actually really loved the design of this bag. Despite it being a relatively small bag it is actually very functional, because you can fit a lot of stuff inside and if like me you are not very tall you can wear it both over the shoulder and cross body which means it easily transitions from day to night. The inside of the bag is quite plain without too many separate compartment, but this means that it actually offers a lot more space. It only has a couple couple of flat pockets on one side to fit something small things like a credit card. However, the bag is quite structured, which I quite like as this means it holds it shape well even if you squish it around a little when travelling.

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
