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!

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.

Youtube Made Me Buy It

Today I have for you a TAG video. I don’t usually do many of these because sometimes I find them quite repetitive, but I saw this one on Fleur de Force’s channel and I loved it.  I think its a great video to find out about products that have been hyped in Youtube but that were actually worth the hype. I am going through all the beauty and skincare products that I have purchased over the last few years which were recommended by fellow Youtubers, and most of them have worked wonders so I hope you enjoy this video and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

Armani Prima Glow On Balm – The Ultimate Moisturiser

Moisturiser is probably not the most exciting product when it comes to beauty, and I have to admit that for the longest time I was not very excited by skincare in general. Finding the best mascara, foundation or lipstick was always on my radar, as it was something visible, and why not say it a lot more ‘pretty’ to buy. Makeup usually has beautiful colours to choose from and sophisticated packaging. However, as I get older I have realised that no matter how good your makeup is nothing sits well if you don’t take good care of the canvas underneath, so focusing on skincare and getting products that work well with my skin no matter how flashy or not their packaging is, has become top of my priority list when it comes to purchasing beauty products.

If you have been watching my tutorials for a while, you will probably know that I have been using the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream for quite a while, and I honestly still think its an amazing moisturiser, specially if you are going to wear in under makeup. However, I recently ran out of my ginormous tub (it is definitely worth the money , mine lasted for over a year) and I was not giving a second thought to repurchasing, but around that time I started hearing lots of great things about Armani’s new Prima Range, specifically their Glow-On Moisturising Balm. I had never actually tried Armani skincare, and till date I had never been too fond of skincare ranges of brands which don’t focus on beauty, i.e. brands who also do clothing, accessories, etc… and the only thing I had actually tried by Armani, was their Luminous Silk Foundation, which actually featured in my recent Disappointing Beauty Products video, so as you may guess it didn’t make the cut.  However, I heard so many people say that this product was a great base for makeup and it was sort of an improved version of the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, that I decided to give it a go.

CLARINS V-FACIAL INTENSIVE WRAP | First Impressions

As you may already know I am a bit of a skincare junkie and one of my main concerns when it comes to my face is the fact that it is quite puffy and bottom heavy, and I think I may just have found the answer to all my prayers. I have been considering fillers to redefine my facial contours for quite some time but when I heard about this product, I said to myself ‘I have to try this!’and now I am actually reconsidering whether fillers are actually even necessary!

In this video I am reviewing and trying on camera Clarins’ Shaping Facial Lift V-Facial Intensive Wrap Mask, which claims not only to smooth and decongest skin but also to reduce puffiness, help tense the skin and define facial contours.

Clarins is a brand which I have grown to love in the last few years. I had never really noticed them much before but once I tried their blue orchid face treatment oil, I was floored. This  is honestly one of the best skincare products I have tried in a very long time. So when I heard of this mask which actually is part of a full range, which is meant to define facial contours and reduce puffiness I was beyond excited. But if you want to find out how I got on with this product then check out the video below and if you enjoy it please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

Disappointing Beauty Products

I love sharing with you the products I am loving every month, but today I thought I would give a brief mention to those which have disappointed me over the years. Be it because they really didn’t work on my skin, or hair, because they broke me out or simply because I think they weren’t worth the splurge, today I am telling you about those products that I have not really wowed me. So I hope you find this video useful and if you have any products which you have found disappointing then please do share below!

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
