Video | What's in my Travel Make-up and Skincare

Hello everyone. Today I put up my 2nd youtube video, where I share with you what make-up and skincare items I am bringing (well technically what I have brought) to London for IMATS. If you like the video make sure to subscribe and comment, and let me know if you have any requests!

I'm on Youtube?

So, as the title suggests... I'M NOW ON YOUTUBE.

Yep, thats right, I decided to put up a youtube video. I've been looking to do videos for a while now, but the camera I'm currently using for my blog doesn't have video, and my webcam on my macbook is terrible quality. So today when I was in town, I decided to part with some of my IMATS money and buy myself a new camera. I only got a Canon Powershot S2500, but it will do for now until I can get a DSLR (hopefully a few after I come back from London) at which time the quality will improve immensely.

London IMATS 2014 | Wishlist

As some of you may know, this weekend I will be attending the London IMATS with my sister Sarah-Anne. As I have already mentioned on numerous occasions, I am so excited, and I can't wait to look at all of the different brands and see what discounts are available. As I have already put up a post about the speakers I am looking to see (you can read that here) I thought I would share my wishlist with you all. My wishlist mostly consists of Crown Brush, OCC and NYX, however I have some money set aside for other brands as I know I will want to buy other products once I actually have a chance to look at them and swatch them.

#HaveYouDiscovered | Hair Products

I have to be honest: when it comes to hair products, I fail. No matter how hard I try to start a good hair care routine, it never works out, and while I may stick to it for a few weeks (normally after having my hair cut) I soon go back to rarely using anything. However if there is one product that I consistently use, it is the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curls.

Happy Fathers Day

Sometimes I think Dads don't get enough recognition for the amazing jobs they do. Most people seem to make a much bigger deal of their Mums, and I know this is definitely the case in our family (ofcourse she totally deserves all of this attention). At Christmas, Mothers day and her birthday, my Mum gets a lot of money spend on her but when it comes to my Dad, his celebrations are always a lot more low-key. So I thought I would take this opportunity to write a quick post about how amazing my Dad is.

London IMATS: Speakers

So as you may know, I am due to attend the London IMATs on the 28th June (which is the Saturday). I've spent the past few days looking over the exhibitor list as well as the schedule for the speakers, as I want to listen to a few of them as I wish to expand my makeup and beauty knowledge. I've pretty much decided on all of the speakers I wish to see, though there are two who clash. As I have decided, I thought it would be fun to share who I wish to see with you all, as well as a quick description of what they will be speaking about.

#HaveYouDiscovered | Lip Products

This weeks topic for #HaveYouDiscovered is one that I have been looking forward to doing since the challenge began. As a lipstick obsessed girl, this was naturally my favourite topic, but when it actually came to choosing a product to talk about, I had no clue. I have so many favourite lip products that I could have talked about that I just didn't know which to actually choose. In the end, I decided on the Revlon Lip Butters.

Imats Tag

So this year I will be attending IMATS for the first time! All I can say is excited doesn't even begin to cover it. My family and friends are probably getting pretty sick of it because I NEVER shut up about it! So when I saw that Becky at Angels Secrets has done the IMATS tag, I knew I had to do it aswell.

1. Which IMATS are you attending?
I'm going to be attending the London IMATS and I'm going on the Saturday! I am so unbelievably excited, and can't wait to browse all of the stalls and listen to some talks!

Mini Avon Beauty Haul

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might know by now that I am a huge fan of lipsticks, so since it had been a while since I had bought any, I decided to buy three new options that I thought would be great for summer. The first two are from the Ultra Colour Matte Lipstick and after a lot of deciding, I settled on the shades Matte Fuchsia and Matte Peach. Matte lipsticks are what I would normally gravitate to, so I have a feeling these two will be getting a lot of use over the summer!
