What’s in my bag: After Covid

How has what is in your everyday handbag been affected by Covid? My handbag contents have changed ever since that spikey little ball entered our lives and lockdown eased.

👜👜👜👜👜👜👜👜👜👜👜👜

What is my bag?

I bought this lovely pale pink cross body bag from Amazon for sixteen pounds. It has loads of compartments and fits loads and some more.

What is in my bag?

Covid essentials

Hand sanitiser

Face covering

Gloves

Wipes

Other essentials

My phone which has such a pretty case (it also serves as a purse) is one of the first things I check and chuck into my bag (oh by the way, most of the things I mention are linked in my videos’ description box… Yeah… There is a video).

Makeup

I have a little makeup pouch. In it I keep a clinique lippie, my Anthelios sun screen and my Maybelline Age rewind. These are the things that I take with me if I am not planning on going out for drinks and stuff!

Other things

An umbrella. We are in the UK. It rains.

My white stick coz, well, I use it to help me navigate and to let people know I cannot see.

My keys, paracetamol, my baby aspirin, a little mirror, a perfume.

Not sure if I forgot anything, but please watch my video for the whole video. Also, trying to reach 500 subscrbers, so if you like what you watch, please subscribe.

Glossybox yay or nah?

Hi lovelies,

Haven’t written a post in foreva, but today is the day…

I filmed a video with a Glossybox unboxing and I talk you through what was in my October box.

October had an Angel and a Devil box. I got the Angel box.

What’s in it?

Well, you have to watch the video to get a full review, but in my box, I got an eyeshadow palette, a pencil lippie, a face mask (which is really cool), a hot chocolate, an eyeliner and a hmmm can’t remember.

I am paying 13 pounds including post and packaging. I have a referral code you can use and get a discount.my code is in the video’s description box.

This is a monthly subscription box. You do get a few random stuff in it, but always welcomed. You get an email reagrding when the pakage has dispatched, so you are always in the loop and know when to expect your package. Oh!! The products come in a beautiful box you can use for storing bits ad bobs.

I will be holding a Giveaway wit some of the products I haven’t used and won’t be using. That will happen in the November video.

I love getting this box because you get to try new products!!

So, shall you try it? I say yay. A least for a few months!

Till next time lovelies….

July Favourites 😍😍

Hi everyone!

Sooo, I decided to give my YouTuber me a boost by filming better quality videos (because the quality of my videos is why I am stuck on 339 subscribers, not coz I may be boring!!!). Anyhoo, so, I sat in front of my video, got the focus right (or so she thought) and started filming. My July faves are great. My video, not so much 😜.

Sowieeee

So, my background focus is great, crisp, clear. Amazing.

I, on the other hand, am blurry. Not a good look.

But I did share the video and I am giving you guys a short post regarding my faves (products may include affiliate links).

My July faves

I talk about my favourite skincare and makeup.
I usually shop from Superdrug, Boots and M&S when it comes to my beauty and skincare.
So, what on earth did I love?

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Skincare

*Formula Jaw and Neck cream (M&S)
This cream has a similar texture to moisture surge. The nice jelly, cooling feeling. I have been using it for about a month now and I do feel the skin under my chin tightening. I have linked a product similar to what I am using because I was not able to find what I have been using. Defo check it out if you are in the market for a nice jaw cream. It is around 15 pounds.

*Rosie Autograph Summer Rose Perfume (Marks and Spencer brand)

OK, I am kinda cheating here, but where would I put a perfume??? I love this perfume. It is a summer rose with a hint of a cucumber-y freshness to it. I love it (my fave perfumes are Chloe love, Escada notes, Clinique aromatics white- just to give you a feel of what I like).

Aveeno Hand cream

This is a great hand cream. It does not sting, it gets absorbed quickly and it does not smell.

Sudocream (baby bum cream)

Random, I know but I just love it. My boyfriend told me to use it when my skin was feeling itchy and it was red. Works great on eczema as well.

Interdental brushes from Boots (or anywhere)

I get food stuck in my teeth (TMI), I know, but I use these little brushes and they are amazing!!!! I love them. I have them all around my house now. I use them instead of floss. If you have never tried them, please check them out!

4Head Balm (great for headaches)

So you know when you have a throbbing headache and your magic trick (paracetamol and coffee) does not work? This is when you should try this product. It is a balm you swipe over wherever you have a headache and it starts tingling. It has helped me in some cases with headaches. I really like it!

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Makeup

*Gold Rush Blush by Benefit

An oldie, but a goodie. I use this blush a lot. I love it. It is my summer go to blush. I bought the mini blush and it is great! No meed to buy the full size.

MaxFactor Bewitching Coral

I love this lipstick. So pretty. Loads of compliments. Great for the summer. Amazing texture. Nice, soft, nourishing. I love this line. I have written a blog post about it and you can find it here.

*Clinique Sunkissed Bronzer

I was given this bronzer when I bought a load of other products from Clinique. I really like it. Summery.

I didn’t like the Bionsen Deoderant and the Jelly Pop Lipgloss from E.l.f (will give that another shot though).

For more details and to see my failed attempt at a better quality video, check out my Youtube post.

Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what your faves are.

Till next time….

The one about masks and nail varnish

Hi lovelies,

You are tired and you want to relax, what do you do?

📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖

For me, it’s coffee from my coffee machine (yummy latte), a record playing in the background, a book (currently reading Sophie Kinsella’s book and love it) and some sort of pampering session i.e. nails and masks.

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

My masks

I went into Boots and bought loads of masks. Hydrating, soothing, brightening. Love them all!

My nails

I got the 60 seconds nail varnish from Rimmel and the base/top coat from the same brand as well. I am really happy with the results guys!

My Vlog

I filmed a vlog where I talk about all the masks I got and tell you what I think of the one I used. I also chat to you about stuffs 😜. So, grab your coffee (or tea) and check out my vlog. Maybe give my video a thumbs up and even subscribe? (shameless plug!!)

Till next time

The Maxi Dress Monster…..

My boyfriend asked me why I don’t wear dresses. I thought to myself.

Why don’t I?

Well, I thought they’d make me look bigger than what I am. I thought they’d emphasize my lymphodema. I just forgot about them and just kept on buying trousers.

One day I was in New Look and saw a pretty leopard print maxi dress. I tried it on. I liked it, but I thought to myself,

I cannot wear dresses in public.

Or can I?

A few days fast forward, I showed my friend Marina (she was visiting from Greece).

I said proudly,

Look at the dress I got for the beach!!

She said,

Why won’t you wear it anywhere else?

Umm cause my body shape was a fat pear and cause I didn’t wanna look like a fatso box.

But then I stood in front of a mirror. Vanity started floating in the air…

Hmmmm I can pull this off.

So, I did. I wore my maxi dress in London and loved it.

I felt sophisticated and fun. Summery and free. I wanted to twirl in my dress.

Then a monster was born. The Maxi Dress Shopper Monster. I have five dresses now. I 😍 them all.

I filmed a ”get ready with me” video showing you a dress I got from Debenham,’s. If you have time, check my video out. Dosubscribe to my channel. I would appreciate the support.

That is all for now. I hope you enjoyed my ramble. Till next time

😘😘😘
