Hi Everyone! I am doing Vlogmas!! Yup! Well, vlogmas with a twist.

You see, my life ain’t full of stuff worth sharing, but there will be days where I do a “day in the life.. ” type of video. So, there will be more vlogs.

Content videos

On days when I do not upload a “day in the life” video, I will be sharing a content video.

So far I have pre-filmed a massive makeup haul ๐Ÿฅฐ, an Amazon gift guide and a thematic gift guide. That last video has been so much fun.


Back to Vlogmas

In today’s vlogmas I open the first doors of my advent calendars (ASOS and M&S), I show you my makeup and skincare routine (kinda and brief), I make my yummy leak and potato stew (delicious) and write in my planner.

This is my makeup of the day

Foundation No7, Hourglass blush/ bronzer

Mac lippie in Velvet Teddy.

I really hope you have time to check out my vlogmas and maybe subscribe?

That is all for now!

See you in my next post

So, what did I like this month?

Natasha Denona eye shadow mini palette. I have the glam and the nude palette. These eyeshadows are so pretty. The formula is very pigmented and easy to blend. I love it! They are around ยฃ22 for five mini shadows.

Fave lippies

I have said it many, many times. Clinique pop for the lips! My fave. They are hydrating and so comfy on the lips. A must. If you are looking for a dupe, check out MaxFactor Elixir.

So, I talk about loads more. This was just a taster. Check out my video here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

October Favourites

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t posted in forever. Truth is, I am consistent when it comes to my YouTube channel, but I always tend to neglect my blog. I plan to do better though.

I posted a Youtube video with my monthly favourites. I love to watch favourites because you get a sense of what people really like and recommend. At this point, I need to say that I really dislike fave videos that include paid promotions….


Anyway, let’s get down to faves. I am giving you a snippet here and loads of beauty, skincare and random ones in my faves!

Hourglass Universe Palette

I bought it. I love it. It is the only palette I used when travelling. I use all the pans and even use it on my eyes. I have received loads of compliments. The powders are so beautiful you can build the intensity. It is “espensiv” tho


Elemis cleansing balm (rose)

I love this balm. Yes, it is a splurge, but it is so nice and You and I are worth it! It leaves your face nice and soft and does not strip it making it feel dry! I use it as my first step when cleansing!


Mac-Velvet Teddy

I have been using this lippie loads the past month. It is a warm brown lippie. It feels comfy and quite hydrating.


Sooo, now you got a taster of my faves, head over to my video and give it some TLC please. Let me know what your October faves were and consider subscribing!!

Makeup Haul & Giveaway

Hello lovelies,

I went to Wilkos the other day and went straight to the Essence stand.

Essence is a brand I discovered when I was in Germany. Very affordable with good quality products.

I had heard a few YouTubers comment on how amazing the metallic eyeyshadows were. My Wilkos had some, so I bought some. Then my friend showed the Roses palette, which she had bought, and of course, I got eyeshadow envy and bought that as well.

I needed a new nail varnish. Tick. And finally, I repurchased my beloved lash princess mascara.

I also picked up a few products from Revlon and Maybelline. Anyways! Where am I going with this? Well, my Youtube channel has a video where I show you all these products and there is also a Giveaway! Open internationally. Ends 25/4. If you want to enter, head over to my channel and watch my video!

Connect with me on Twitter and IG (@mypinkrambles). What are your fave Essence products?

Till next time…

Glowy makeup for Glasses

Hi Everyone,

I do not know about you, but I find intricate makeup looks quite hard when you wear glasses. You see, I am partially sighted and colour blind, but I love makeup! That is why my makeup looks are more focused on keeping it simple, blended with a nice lip.

I pay a lot of attention to my base and aim for a glowy, natural look.


in order to achieve a lovely look, I get my skin prepped. I use my serums and moisturisers and make sure that my skin is nice and smooth.


One of the foundations I have been using quite a lot and love because it is very dewy, is the Nyx Born to Glow foundation. I think this foundation is not getting enough TLC online and if you have not tried it, you really should.

This foundation is a semi thick liquid. Not too runny, but not too thick. It goes on the skin effortlessly and looks like skin. You do not look like you are plasterd. I love it.

Another foundation I have been using and loving, is the Elf CC cream. A CC cream is not exactly a foundation. It has some coverage, but not too much. I think this one works well to correct pigmentation and make your skin look really nice and natural as well.

Out of the two, I think that if you are going for a dewy look, check out the Nyx one, if you want a good coverage CC cream, go for the Elf one. Both are around 10 pounds and have good lasting power. I would say around 8 hours. My skin is quite sensitive, but it has handled both foundations well.

Bronzer and Blusher

Moving on from foundation, I use a powder bronzer (currently using the Hourglass Ambient powder) and then I use blush. I always wear blush. I use my foundation to cover redness and then blush to bring back colour! Ironic, I know.

I keep my eyes simple. I usually use one shade all over the lid.

Lipstick is where I go all cray cray. The bright lip is what I usually go for. Drawing attention to my lips is what I do when I wear my glasses. My favourite lippies are from Max Factor (the Elixir line) and from Clinique (Pop)

Get ready with me: Glowy Look

Some background. I am 45 with redness on my cheeks and some pigmentation. My skin is dry and sensitive. I filmed a glowy get ready with me video on my channel. If that is something you are interested in, please check my channel out and maybe even subscribe to it.
