Five Friday Faves

Hi!!

I thought I’d share with you another Five Friday Faves post video. What is Five Friday Faves? Well, I talk about Five random things I have been loving. I talk about makeup, skincare, books, clothes and more.

So, let’s start.

1. Oasis

I love shopping from Oasis and I picked up two things during the sales; a bag and a top.

The bag has leather details, stripes, and a big bow. It has some pockets inside. It is a “chuck in everything bag”. I use mine to go shopping and stuff like that.

I also bought a lilac top. It is very lightweight material. The cute thing about it are the sleeves. They look like they are lace. So pretty.

2. Kefir Quark

I am a mac n’cheese kinda girl cause well it is quite hard to sustain this bod 😜. From time to time though, I slip off the unhealthy bandwagon and try something healthier. I bought my first (and not last) Kefir quark. I got it because I was looking for something good for my stomache (it is ideal if you are on antibiotics). I got the chia and raspberry flavour. It tastes a bit like a sour Greek yoghurt. It is thick and a bit sour. The seeds make it taste a bit yummier. I also add weetabix to mine and it makes a yummy filling brecki.

3. Olay Serum

So, full name is Olay anti-wrinkle 2 in 1 firm and lift booster and serum. It comes with a pump. It is a serum you can use before your moisturiser or under your makeup. It does plumpen up your skin. It is for women 40+. It does not break me out or sting. I usually wear it at night and in the morning my skin feels nice and soft.

4. Summer at Rose Island (by Holly Martin)

Time for some chick lit. Girl meets boy in a British UK seaside resort. There is a lighthouse. It has all that are essential for a big love story. I like it because it is funny and fast paced. A page turner coz it is fun.

5. Clinique Chubby Stick in

I have mentioned my chubby sticks over and over. They are so easy to use. I am partially sighted (I cannot see) , so it is very easy to mess up my eye makeup. These eyeshadow sticks are very easy to control. The pigmentation is quite good. The application is super easy. It spreads evenly and does not really crease (unless you colour your lids in too much and then, yes, after a while, it may crease). I have a couple of shades, but the one I reach for most often is Fuller Fudge.

So, you can now watch my video where I talk about these faves in more detail (maybe even subscribe to my channel?? 😍😍).

Have you tried any of these products? What are your Friday faves? Let me know in the comments below. Don’t forget to “follow” my blog (or Youtube channel), so that you never miss out on my super duper rambles.

Thanks for stopping by.

2016 Random Favourites: gadgets, clothes, jewelry & planners

Hi everyone!!

Time for 2016 Random Favourites. In this post I am going to talk about clothes, bags, planners, gadgets and other random stuff I used a lot during 2016.

Gadgets

I read books and I have a Tiny (yeap, that’s the brand) book light. It produces enough light and is pink. I have had it for ages and haven’t changed the battery yet!!

TINY

JBL Speaker

If you want to listen to music from your phone, you should get a wireless speaker. I got one and have been blasting my videos all year!!! I am really happy with mine! You charge it on your pc.

My Kate Spade Agenda

I use this planner for my social media and blogging. I also love my floral To Do fridge magnet notepad. You can check it out in my video.

BOOKS

Books

The Rosie Project

If you like books about love, check this one out. This is chick lit but with a twist. The story teller is a guy. He is trying to find a girlfriend and he makes a questionaire which he gives his candidates. I rest my case!!!

 

FRONT

 

The Decision Book

BOOK

If you are interested in productivity, time management, goals etc., you should check this book out. I read it in one night!!!

Zara Cardigan

This is my all seasons , all looks cardigan. I have two colours. It retails for 20 euros. I have washed mine a zillion times and nothing happened to them!! I am really happy with these cardigans, so you should definitely check it out!!

H&M hoodies

OK, so  you may not be a jogger, but these hoodies are great to wear when you are at home, relaxing. They are super affordable from 20-25 euros.

Hi everyone,

Time for October favourites, but this time my favourites are in a video on my YouTube channel. I’d love it if you watched them and subscribed to my channel. I know I still have a lot of improving to do regarding filming, lighting, ‘makeuping’ my face (:p) and editing, but this is fun, so give this chick (aka me) a chance.

Hope you like my newbie video.

Oh! I also have a One Minute Video Beauty Vlogs about things I love beautywise. You can check these out by watching this. They are funny. Like weird snap chat style videos. 🙂

Thanks for watching!!!

Fall Jewelry Trends I Like & Others I Love to Hate

Do you like jewelry? I do. Earrings and necklaces in particular. I flipped through magazines, read articles online and did a bit of accessory shopping. Today I will share the trends I love and those I love to hate….

Fall Jewelry Trends.jpg

1 Long Earring, 1 Short Earring

So I bought the weirdest, the most random pair of earrings from Oasis.When I wore them together I didn’t like them and since I knew the one short, one long earring was a trend, I tried it and hmmm…. dunno folks.

thumbnail_img_20160917_1003541

I am kinda on the fence on this one, maybe cause these earrings are so out there that I am starting to dislike them. I wore one long and a stud. I may try a more subtle pairing and give this trend one more shot.

Pearls

I ❤ pearls. They are elegant, chic, sophisticated, and can tranform any outfit. They are in this season, and I already have a small collection of expensive pearl necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

thumbnail_20160910_220641_12

My Golay pearl necklace

I also bought a pair of earrings that look really interesting. I got them from M & S. Nice, huh? Do invest in pearls though……..

thumbnail_20160917_1746382

A circle on a Neclace

Circles hanging from a chain neclace are also something I noticed on social media and in stores, so I got this necklace when I was in Topshop. In hindsight, I think I would have liked a smaller circle.

thumbnail_img_20160913_2054091

Chokers

While I like the trend and wore chokers when I was in my teens, I am a bit self concious about my neck, so I thought I’d dip my toe in this trend and bought a small choker from River Island. We will see how this goes ladies. I may cave and also get a velvet-y one from Zara.

Brooches

Oh!! So, so gorgeous. Got a hair brooch from Topshop can’t wait to put it on my hair when I go somewhere more dressier. You can also wear them as pins on clothes. I prefer hair brooches though.

My picks

I had a quick look on Amazon and found some pieces I like and think are similar to some of the jewelry shown in this post (his part contains amazon affiliate links).

The necklace with the circle

Smaller circle and a bit more delicate.

circle-necklace-rose-gold

Chokers Black Velvet Ribbon

As I said, I think I will try a plain velvet one.

Pearl Earrings

I liked these although I do suggest gettingreal elegant pearls.

Hair Brooch

Not a hair Brooch, but a hair comb. Pretty.
