I’ve been in France for over a week and the internet at my parents’s house is still down, so I’m having to tether my laptop to my phone to connect to the outside world and write this week’s Friday Faves post! As usual I have three favourite things I can’t wait to tell you about, along with my first Friday Faux Pas…
When I’m in a rush to get ready or have no inspiration for my make up, I always go for a warm-toned eye look. Whenever I post a selfie with this type of make up, someone will usually ask me which products I use, so I thought I would do a quick tutorial. Don’t forget to subscribe and give me a thumbs up if you enjoy this – these help my videos to appear in people’s side bars so I would love you forever!
Some people love wandering around the shoe section in Selfridges. Some are happiest in Paperchase (which I *totally* get, that place is dreamy). For me, I could waste hours in Boots. Whether it’s in person – swatching make up all the way up my arm – or online where I repeatedly fill my online basket full of my skincare wishlist after doing hours of research on all the new releases. The return of the 3 for 2 deal means you can find your skincare favourite with Boots UK – come and see what I’m trying out this month!
This is a sponsored post in association with Boots UK.
I’ve set this week’s Friday Faves post to go live automatically as I am currently holidaying in the South of France. I’m so fancy… no, I’m not really. The reason I had to schedule it is because my parents live in the middle of flipping nowhere and their internet goes down ALL the time and it’s like visiting people who live in caves. So if you comment below (please do, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy) I’m not ignoring you, I’m just having enforced no-screen time.
This month has been a tricky one for my skin. It got *really* cold in London and every time I leave the house my rosacea instantly kicks off! Add this to the fact that I think the person living below me is running a sauna from their living room (it’s the only possible explanation for the heat emanating through our floorboards…) my skin doesn’t know whether it’s coming or going. Old favourites and new discoveries galore: are you ready for Skincare Shake Up February 17?
The muted nail trend is one of my absolute favourites – I’m a huge fan of anything grey-toned and am always looking for nail varnish that puts a different spin on the typically season-appropriate colours. Spring is usually when people unpack their pastels, maybe a few brights, perhaps some nudes. So I’ve picked some beautiful Morgan Taylor polishes that are unusual takes on the more traditional colours.
I have finally returned to YouTube! It’s been four months since my last video which has flown by. YouTube was starting to erode my self-confidence (seeing your face in HD is not great for your self-esteem!) and I wanted to take a little break to think about the types of videos I wanted to make and where I fitted in within the YouTube community. I think I’m going to focus on my #RosaceaReview videos and make up looks rather than the chatty videos, they feel less pressured in some way. I hope you enjoy my Revlon Colorstay foundation review, please do like, subscribe, comment and share if you like it. I’m a bit nervous about coming back after so long but actually really enjoyed filming this!
This week has absolutely flown by and I’m not really ready for the weekend. I’m going away on holiday next week and still have so much work to do. Send help! However, I’m very excited to share my Friday Faves with you this week: there’s another excellent podcast, a book that has been helping me to switch off before bed, along with a perfume that makes me feel like a femme fatale with a cigarette holder and a withering glare. Don’t forget to leave your Friday Faves in the comments below, I love to hear your recommendations!
