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?
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).
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!
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.

I just received the May 2020 Look Fantastic beauty Box and I am really happy. You get all these lovely products (which you can see in my video) and may I say that I love this box. Compared to the Glossybox, I prefer it.
This box had a makeup microfibre cleansing cloth
A moisturiser that retails for 100 pounds!!
A borw gel
A lip balm
a Korres Face mask (I love Korres!!)
You should check out my video if you want a detailed show and tell. In my video I also tell you my thoughts about the products from the previous box and how much usage I got out of them!!
You can use my Look fantastic refferal Code to get a discount off your first box
Sorry this blog post is short and not that amazing, but i am tired. Hope you have time to watch my video and check out this amazing box!
When I first received this packet of washi tape, I was not that sure that I would be using it especially as everything looked so similar. Then I decided to make a spread using only washi tape. The one I am using is this one Multi Pattern decorative washi tape (shown in the pictures above).
The spread turned out really nice. I am so pleased with it.
This is my video. If you like what you see, please give it a thumbs up.
Are you struggling to find ideas on what to take to work for lunch? I hear ya. That is why I filmed a video with my 3 lunchbox ideas.
I always take lunch to work. It is my way to save money. You see, we have a microwave at work, so we can heat things up. No excuse. Also, I live next to Superdrug, so I try to save money to buy more stuffs 😜.
What’s in my lunch box?
I usually take lots of snacks like fruit (fresh and dried), pretzels, cookies etc. I like to have a variety of snacks, so I can eat what I feel like when at work.
In this video I talk about salads and frozen foods. I also show you some other essentials that go in my lunch box/bag.
So, grab your coffee or tea and enjoy my video. Don’t forget to subscribe because I would love to have you back.
Sooooo, that’s all for now. See you in my next post.
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!
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 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.
I went into Boots and bought loads of masks. Hydrating, soothing, brightening. Love them all!
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!
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!!)
I thought I’d give my favourite lippie a shout out today. I am a lipstick hoarder. I love lippies. The brighter, the better, especially if it is summer. The product I am going to talk about is the
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick
Let’s start with what others say……….
This lipstick according to amazon,
Actively moisturises for smoother, full lips (vs bare lips)
Rich colour lipstick infused with moisture
Works overtime for smoother-looking lips in 7 days
A blend of 60 percent emollients, conditioners and antioxidants including vitamin E
Colour Elixir Lipstick gives you smooth, soft lips with gorgeous colour.
According to the Max Factor UK website,
Achieve smoother, fuller-looking lips with Colour Elixir Lipstick. The conditioning formula glides on effortlessly for soft, moisturised lips while delivering vibrant lip colour in an instant. – 16 intense shades – Super-conditioning ingredients: vitamin E, shea, avocado and aloe butters – Smoother, fuller-looking lips
How to Apply: Step 1: For extra fullness, etch around the lip line and cupid’s bow with Colour Elixir Lip Liner before applying lipstick.
Step 2: Veil lips in your shade of Colour Elixir Lipstick.
Step 3: Blot with a tissue then reapply to intensify your shade.
So let’s see what I think about it.
Does it make the lips softer? Smoother? Juicier (dare I say).
Yup. Yup and yup. So nice and creamy. Light weight. Like a balm but not as balmy if that makes sense. It conditions your lips.
Is it easy to apply?
Yes. If it gets a bit smudged, you do not have to take hours to take it off (this applies to darker shades.
Vibrant lip colour?
Cannot talk about all the shades, but the ones I have (bewitchening coral and pink brandy) are bright and very pigmented. Not patchy.
Does it make lips look fuller?
Dunno….. They do look nicer and healthier.
Have you blotted your lips with tissue paper?
Nope. On the list though!
Now my own rambles
I would compare this to my other fave lippie… Clinique Pop.
I would not call it a long lasting lippie.
Not matte, but not glossy either. Somewhere in the middle.
Price is affordable especially when you can get the 3 for 2 offer.
I did a bit of shopping from H& M, so I thought I’d show you what I got along with my Get Ready with me video.
But first, what did I get?
I got this lovely chunky pearl earring. I think they look really nice paired with a nice spring knit or blouse. They can transform your outfit into something really glam.
Layered (-ing) necklaces
So, shell fish-y hangy stuff are all over the place. I got this necklace that is da embodiment of summer. It will look great with a V neck. You can wear it on it’s own or with other pieces.
I also got a necklace with a small circle hanging on it. I think that looks really chic.
A wide leg pair of smart trousers. I have bought more classic looking trousers from H&M before and they are great value for money. Have washed my winter pair many times and they are still a great fit. This pair is more lightweight. The only thing I do not love about them is that they are quite high waisted.
Snake Print shirt
I ❤ animal print. Most of the things I have are leopard print. That is why I bought my first snake print shirt. Ideal for going out. What do you think?
Light (knit) blouses
At 8.99 I got three. A white, a pink and a black blouse. I made the mistake of buying the pink one in XLarge and it is quite big. I bought the others in Large. They are nice and soft, a bit baggy, the sleeves do not drown you and I 😍 them. Great basics for Spring 🌹🌷🌹
I also got this pretty hair tie which is very on trend at the moment. I really like this and it does make my hair look a bit more put together.
Now time for the Tube…
My YouTube video is me showing you my work outfit. I wear the pink blouse, another H&M wide leg trouser, the necklace and makeup… On my face. And since I am talking about makeup, my look is a very easy everyday makeup look.
