Vlogging time: York, Primark and my 1st white cane

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Hi lovelies,

YouTube promo time. I filmed a vlog cause my life is sooooooooooo interesting. What do I show you?

Two hauls 😳😳

A grocery haul and a Primark haul.I love watching what people think about food and seeing what they consume. I get ideas about what I could buy.

My Primark haul was a good one actually (mind my saying!). I got Tees and a really cool makeup bag (I strongly suggest you pick one up if you have the opportunity).

I also bought pressies for my family.

I show you my new lap top/ table tray. I like that as well.

I am using my white cane for the first time. I think that if you are partially sighted like me, you really need to get one! Of course I walk around York which is a lovely place!!

Here is my vlog. Do check it out and subscribe if you wanna hear more from me…..

More vlogs are coming your way this time from Crete, Greece, so stay tuned.

Don’t forget to connect with me somewhere, somehow (check the sidebar for details.

have a nice day/ night.

Chat soon

GRWM using no foundation

Sometimes you just want a quick and easy makeup look. Something that you can apply and be ready in 5 mins. Other times it is just too hot or you are just too lazy and don’t feel like a full face of products. That is why I filmed this video and why I am sharing this post.

I am sharing with you a makeup look that requires no foundation.

Products used

(ummmm what I remember….)

Estee Lauder Doublewear concealer. I love this concealer. It is long lasting and easy to blend into your skin. I also used my SPF which is Clinique city block. I like this sunscreen because it is a little bit tinted, but not much!

I used a Laure Mercier bronzer in 02 and my Becca Opal highlighter. I used my Benefit gold rush blush and on my lips, the Rimmel Stay Matte liquid lippie in Rose Shine.

On the eyes an eyeshadow stick (my faves are the Clinique chubby sticks) and some mascara (currently using L’oreal Paradise).

Five Friday Faves

Hi lovelies,

It is Friday (it was when I started writing this) and it is time for my 5 Friday Faves Youtube Video (and a promotional blog post which aims to get you to watch my video and maybe even subscribe to my channel coz I am trying to grow and no one really subs 😩😩). So, enough with the rambling. What are my faves?

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Body shop

My Moringa hand cream is so hydrating, lightweight and smells amazing. I 😍 it.

The card factory

I love polka dots. I love pink. I love organisation. I bought a box which is sterdy and very pretty.

Marks and Sparks

The scent of 🌹 🌹🌹 and it is my favourite. I bought the Rose 3 in 1 spray. You can use it on your body, for your room, and linen. I know that sound weird, but I like it and I πŸ’— the scent.

Primark

I bought a couple of fake flowers from Primark and my friend commented saying how nice they looked. I really like them. Great decor for shelves and stuff.

My Cane

This is a weird one, but I needed a warning cane. I now have one, and my life is much easier!Having a vision impairment is hard. Accepting that you need help is hard. Getting help is great though.

If you want to hear more about my faves, check out my channel. It would be great if you subscribed as well (#beggingforsubbies).

Anyhow, have a lovely weekend. See you in my next post and don’t forget to connect with me somehow, somewhere.

Five Faves:beauty and random

This post contains affiliate links

So initially I shared this video on Friday and I called it five Friday faves. Catchy title, right? I never got round to writing a blog post though, so here I am on a Sunday at 8 p.m. blogging.

Thumb

Back story

I ❀ favourites (videos), but I always forget to film one or have too many faves. That is why I started filming my Friday faves. They haven’t really become very popular (then again none of my videos have :P), but I do enjoy chatting about faves and I will do so here as well.

OK enough with the rambling dude……

What do I talk about

A book

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.

I have not finished reading this book but it is so much fun. It is about a lonely, kinda awkward gal who shares her stories. You should check it out. According to Reese Witherspoon (www.amazon.com)

β€œBeautifully written and incredibly funny,Β Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely FineΒ is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” —Reese Witherspoon

Chubby Sticks

Of course I am going to go on about the Clinique Chubby Sticks. I love them. If you are partially sighted, like me, or a newbie makeup gal, you should check them out.

I have the lilac, brown, pink and beige/gold. They retail for about 17 pounds. I have had them forever. Nice creamy and they do not crease. Strongly recommend lovelies!!!See below the full colour range.

Nuxe Multi purpose dry oil

Lovely oil which I use on my hair and …… (wait for it) elbows. It smells very lightly and is not oily… for an oil. It leaves my hair feeling nice and soft. I only use a little bit on the ends. It does not leave my hair greasy. I really think this product is underrated. It has also helped my elbows soften a bit. A little bit goes a long way.

Sephora Beautifying Mist

Spritz spritz and you wake up without wrecking your makeup. Is that enough?

Lush Sleepy body lotion

It is supposed to help you sleep. I cannot comment on that. It does smell nice though and does seem to help me relax.

OK now if you want more details on these products and are bored (wanting to watch something), then check out my video!!!

3 Thoughts Tuesday

Hi everyone,

How are you? I hope you are having a lovely week. In today’s post I am going to share a new YouTube video idea I had. It is called 3 Tuesday Thoughts and I review 3 well known products and tell you what I think about them.

🌻🌻🌻🌻3 Products 🌻🌻🌻🌻

In today’s video I talk about Estee Lauder Doublewear which is my Go To foundation if I want a budge proof foundation and a porcelaine skin effect. I 😍 this foundation and in the video I show you how I apply it (sponge vs. brush) and what I think works.

I talk about the Stilla liquid eyeshadow in Grace. Are they worth the hype? Yes! They are opaque and stay on for a long time. I 😍 it (more details in the video -toot toot).

I finally talk about lip oils and my favourite Clarins one. It is the Instant light lip comfort Oil. The colour I have is a kinda orange. I tell you why I like it and swatch it.

If you are interested in these products, click on the video and check out for yourself. Let me know how thesebeauty products work for you. If you are looking for a new channel to watch, check out mine.

Thanks for stopping by.

Get ready with me//partially sighted

Hi everyone,

I have been watching Youtube makeup tutorials for a while and I really enjoy them, but they are not for me. What I mean is, I see titles like:

Makeup for glasses

Or

Get ready with me in the dark

And I kinda cringe.

You see, I have registered as partially sighted (visually impaired) and have achromatopsia (rare color deficiency). I cannot relate.

When you cannot see well, makeup tutorials for people who wear glasses cannot be intricate coz well…. you cannot see. It is as simple as that!

I filmed a Get Ready With Me video and showed how I do my makeup.When I watched it I thought to myself,

Who will watch this amateur GRWM?

But then I thought,

this IS my reality.

And the reality of many, like me. So, I shared.

GRWM

My focus is on the base (foundation). At the moment, I am using the Clinique Beyond Perfection foundation (I like it). I also choose a bold (ish) lip colour (I 😍 Clinique Pop).

My eyes usually have one colour on them. I usually use an eye shadow stick because they are easier to control and harder to mess up.

I use primers and setting sprays to hold the look together.

I do not really do smokey eyes or wings or yada, yada, yada.

Oh! And if someone is around, I ask them to check my makeup. See if everything is looking OK because I cannot seeeeeee.

You see, for me, putting on my makeup in the dark is kinda like a reality, NOT a fun YouTube click bait idea idea. So, if you are in the same boat as me, check out my video and maybe give me some tips. I will be back with more Get Ready With Me videos coz I need to be more descriptive.

This is the video

Let me know what you think.
