For any one who is interested I have a Youtube Channel! I'm pretty new to it and I'm still practicing being confident in front of the camera. I usually film Haul Video's because I find that (like most girls) I like to go shopping and then talk about it. Ever since I got my first pay check I have always come home and shown my mum everything I had bought and give her a full explanation as to why I bought each item (poor mum). Oh and the occasional fashion show. I think that's why I enjoy filming Haul's and talking about products. I want to upload quite frequently and expand into other areas, such as makeup tutorials and lookbooks. I do however work full time, so for me blogging and Youtube is a part time thing but I will try my very best!

This is what I am passionate about and for me it is a hobby. I used to work another job at the weekend so I never had any free time to myself. A couple of weeks back it clicked in my head that I should be spending my free time and weekends doing what I love (blogging & photography). So after having this 'click' moment I handed in my notice to my weekend job and I feel so much better for it. Sometimes it isn't all about money, yes the weekend job did give me extra money and I did like that, BUT it is just a job and it is just money. My other job could cover my bill's so it was a no brainer really. Now I can start spending that time doing what I want, going on days out, taking blog pictures. The weekend is my oyster!

Anyway enough rambling, I filmed a Primark Haul if you would like to check it out. Thanks for reading and thanks for watching.

Primark Haul & A Little Ramble..

For a long time now I have been using Garnier Micellar Water as my go to make up remover. I love it so much, it's great for my sensitive skin and it doesn't dry my out. A couple of weeks back I noticed Garnier had released a new Micellar Water, the 'Oil Infused Micellar Water'. I was excited to try this because I am such a big fan of the original. I was attracted to the 'oil infused' aspect of the product because an oil removes eye makeup a lot quicker. However from having a few tries of this product I was not completely impressed.

Suitability for Sensitive Skin
The Oil infused water did not work as well with my skin compared to the original. It had a strong perfume scent to it that the original doesn't. Unfortunately this meant that it did not suit my sensitive skin. Although I prefer the original the oils did leave my skin feeling really soft so I would recommend if you are not sensitive to strong perfumed products.

Winner: Original Micellar

Application & Time
The Oil Infused water can be a little bit more work to use, this sounds lazy but because it is an oil based product you have to mix it up every time you use it. Then you have to quickly squirt some onto a cotton pad before it separates again. Although this is not a big deal it just makes it more of a faff to use compared to the original.

Winner: Original Micellar

Removing Makeup
I would say that they both remove makeup well, but I think the Oil Infused removes eye makeup a bit better. An oil tends to remove eye makeup a lot better, and I found that this was true for this product as my makeup seemed to melt away a lot easier.

Winner: Oil Infused Micellar

Overall the Oil Infused Micellar water is a lovely product in terms of removing makeup more effectively and leaving the skin feeling soft. However in terms of sensitivity and practicality I would say that the original is the winner for me.


Much love,

I know that most of the festivals are finished for summer now but I thought I would share with you the makeup look I created on my sister for V Festival. I was so excited to do this because I have never actually been to a festival before and I love any excuse to play around with glitter.
After having a good look through Pinterest I came up with a blue liner and glitter kind of look. I used Mac fluid line in 'low lights' on the top lid and used Mac Fluid line in Siahi on the bottom lash line. I specifically went to Claire's on the hunt for some festival-esq makeup/accessorise. I forgot how amazing Claire's is! There was so much stuff and it was all really affordable, I got a pack of different shade glitter pens, which are really amazing quality. I also found some skin gems to apply on the face.




BASE
Foundation | Rimmel
Concealer | Maybelline anti age
