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!
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!!
Two posts in a day?? Wow!! Well, I shared a video I filmed on my YouTube channel and thought I’d share it here too.
My January/Current Favourites
In this video I share with you all my favourites and I also do my Giveaway. This Giveaway was meant to be for Xmas, but I was unable to film it, so I am doing it now.
I have been loving loads of stuff but what I talk about are mostly skincare and beauty. I also talk about a book, food and a gadget (you need this in your life).
I talk about my fave lippie, perfume, conealer and eyeshadow.
Well, moisture surge and No7 serum get a mention.
I read the book the Tattooist of Auschwitz. I liked it, but have a few comments about the narrator. I tell you about the salad topper I am currently loving and finally the clothes pilling shaver. I really like this gadget!!! Makes your jumpers look brand new!!!
My Giveaway is big and it is on my Youtube channel. To enter you need to head over there.
Sooooo, that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
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 😜.
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?
*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.
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!
You can watch everything by clicking on my YouTube video. Do subscribe. It would be great if you supported my channel the way you support my blog. So watch my fave lippies, nail varnish, foundation (everyone is raving about it, but I didn’t like it at first), fashion from zara (da best Tee) and… wait for it… art!!
Being a 16+ can make it a bit hard to shop. Today, I am sharing with you a glam get ready with me for the curvy gal like me. I filmed a video where I show you the complete look. Clothes and makeup. Some bits and bobs are shared in this post, but loads of info is in the video.
I love these trousers. They are wide leg and very easy to style. They have proper pockets. The material is like a soft pair of jeans with some sort of cloth in it. It does not crease. I loved it so much, I bought another colour (wine).
To complete the look I put on pearl earrings from Primark and a necklace from Marks and Spencer.You can get the earrings here.

(Some of) My Makeup
Makeup revolution foundation: Love it. It is not drying if you put on moisturiser and primer. It gives a flawless base look. Rimmel Wild Card blusher: My winter blusher. It needs blending. Do not go in heavy handed.
Rodial mascara: Too expensive. There are others that do the same job.
This is my Get Ready with me Video. I kinda like the final look 😍 (toot toot).
What do you think? If you are a curvy gal like me, what are your fave shops for buying clothes? Let me know in the comment below.
Time for October Faves. I posted a YouTube video where I talk a lot about what I like about these products, but I also thought I’d share a blog post, cause well, I haven’t written one in forever.
So, what did I love in October?
There is a problem here. I cannot tell you the name of the colour because I am colourblind and cannot read black on reddish backgrounds. I am including a photo though and you do see it in my video. I love this lippie because it is quite long lasting and moisturising. It is not patchy, quite affordable (10 pounds) and autumnal. The colour I have is a reddish brown.
Mua lip lacquers
They have been around forever. They are very affordable (3 quid!). The shades I have are not patchy. My faves are Poise and Tranquility which are both nude tones (video with a full review is coming next on my channel-shameless plug).
I have two stylos I like. Kiko 06 (which is a shimery bronze/ brown I think) and Elf no budge stylo in Moca. That is a rich brown. They are both long lasting and very easy to apply. If you are partially- sighted like me and only use eye stylos, you defo need to check these out cause they are very affordable.
Clinique aromatics in white. If you like powdery scents, you should check this out. Some of my other Faves are Chanel Mademoiselle, Escada Notes and Jo Malone blush suede (trying to give you a sense of the perfumes of what I love).
I am currently using using Rimmel maxi Blush in wild card. It is a red-y blush. If you go in heavy handed, you are……. But if you tap off excess and blend it a bit, it is nice.
There has been a lot of talk about the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define foundation. I personally really like it. It is medium coverage. The application is very easy, it is quite long lasting, easy to spread. It does not show my lines or sink into them. I do moisturise well though underneath it. It is what I am wearing in my video (and pic. Actually, I am wearing a lot of these products in my video).
Oh! Do I have a selection of random goodies for you. Swizzel lollies. I am addicted and I should not be!!!!! So yummy…. and bad. Another random? I bought a re usable shopping bag from Primark (did a massive haul from Primark if you wanna check it out). It has polka dots and the lots. So nice and practical (and one quid!).
I am doing Vlogtober on my YouTube channel. I would love it if you checked out my two Vlogtober videos.
The first one is me talking about my Vlogtober plans. I will do it a bit differently. Coz my life is not full of trips and PR hauls, I will vlog every other day and then have normal content as well. I will be sharing videos from Monday to Friday.

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?
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 💗 the scent.
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.
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.

Anyhow, have a lovely weekend. See you in my next post and don’t forget to connect with me somehow, somewhere.
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.
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.
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)
“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine 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
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.
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!!!
