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….

Curvy gal Get Ready With Me â¤â¤

Hi Lovelies,

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.

 

My Clothes

You can get the trousers here. (affiliate link)

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).

Blouse / shirt similar to mine can be found here.

I love leopard print blouses!!!

(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.

Till next time lovelies…..

October faves:Beauty & Random

Hi everyone!!

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?

Beauty

The lips

No7 Lippie
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).

The eyes

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.

The perfume

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).
perf

The Blush

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.
Capture

The foundation

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).

Random faves

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!).

So there you have it. What were your faves? let me know in the comments below. Do check out my YouTube channel. I ain’t that bad….
Thanks for stopping by.

The other video I shared was mu September favourites

Products I talk about are
Elf no budge eye shadow sticks. I loooooove them
No7 eye shadow stick in gunmetal.

Una Brennan daily moisturiser (radiant). It smells so nice!! 🌹🌹🌹🌹Oh! It does a good job as well!!

Sophie X Highlighter palette. My Becca Opal highlighter broke into pieces. I am so happy with my new purchase!

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 💗 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.

Xx
