Beauty: Zoella’s Let’s Spritz Fragrance

Standard

dsjfhjdI am recommending Zoella’s Let’s Spritz Fragranced Body Mist. Previously I have recommended her Blissful Mistful body mist which you can see here.

I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. Zoella’s products are no different and I very much enjoy them.j

One of my best friends has made it a tradition of sorts to buy me Zoella’s fragrances as presents. This Christmas she bought me the Let’s Spritz body mist and I love it. The perfume is sweet but is a little more grown up than Zoella’s last fragrance, not that either are childish in any way.

The size of the perfume is 45ml and genuinely lasts a long time – well worth the money, since… It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug. The first fragrance was usually £8 or £9 but this one is almost half the price at £4.80 (source: freeunique).

Christmas: Fleur’s Gift Guides and Videos

Standard

Fleur DeForce on YouTube is becoming a regular recommendation on my channel. This time is because of her wonderful Christmas videos, mainly gift guides, which I love to see every year. Since I’m not able to make my own gift guides on my blog this year, which were largely influenced by Fleur’s videos last year anyway, I thought I’d leave you with her wonderful (and recent) videos.

Enjoy!

Beauty: Zoella’s Perfume

I am recommending Zoella’s Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist.

I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. I’ve not yet bought myself any of these products although I do have a few YouTuber books. Anyway, my friend bought me Zoella’s perfume for my birthday earlier this year and I have genuinely loved it.

It smells good! The perfume smells sweet and girly but don’t be mistaken, it’s not a children’s perfume,Zoella_Blissful_Mistful_45ml_1411576372_main it’s suited for young adults, although that doesn’t stop anyone who wants to wear it from wearing it of course.

It lasts forever! My birthday was in February and I kid you not, that I’ve been wearing this perfume so often, especially in the latter part of the year: I’ve been wearing it every day for a while now and there is still a third of perfume left! The size of the perfume is 45ml – well worth the money.

It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug and it tends to sell at £8 a bottle and right now (see date of post) at my local Superdrug, all of the Zoella products are on sale 3 for 2!

Fashion: Primark Dresses for £3

Standard

IMG_2081Today I’m recommending dresses from Primark.

I recently bought the black version of this dress (in the picture attached), it fits amazingly well, and it was very simple and plain, great for everyday wear. These dresses were previously £5 (already super cheap!) but were reduced to £3. WHAT AN AMAZING BARGAIN!

To take advantage of Primark’s prices, I went back a day later to pick up the dress in two other colours, red and white. I would’ve also picked up the navy version had it been in my size. Pink was also available (but not a colour I would personally choose). I can’t wait to get wearing my new dresses and if you want to take advantage of this amazing offer, see if your local Primark are reducing similar stock.

Book: Love, Tanya

Standard

516ogI2SeAL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_YouTube and the YouTube culture has increased dramatically in the last two years with many popular YouTubers being accepted into mainstream entertainment. With this has come the opportunity for many individuals on the platform to write and publish their own books in conjunction to their channels.

Now being a fan of many YouTubers myself, I have bought and read the books of some of my favourite YouTubers. Today I’m recommending Tanya Burr’s Love, Tanya.

Tanya Burr is a beauty and lifestyle blogger and YouTuber online. She also films the occasional vlog and uploads them to her channel. I find that Tanya is very similar to Fleur DeForce (whose book I recommended back in April) and as much their books are very similar, but as a fan of both I thoroughly enjoyed each book and eagerly read one after the other.

Tanya’s book provides a range of content similar to her online work. This includes fashion, beauty, love, friendship, relationships, baking, confidence, happiness and her own life. Much of this content is beauty related but this book is perfect for any fan of Tanya, since it includes autobiographical chapters and advice on anxiety and confidence, which allows Tanya to take her own anxiety as a positive thing to help others in the same position. Even without being a fan of Tanya and her channel, t71Tf3zlVuQLhe book offers top tips on so many different things including relationship tips such as date ideas and wonderful baking recipes.

love tanya 2While reading the book I found that I never wanted to put it down and kept reaching for it at every opportunity. The book is just brilliant; it is aesthetically pleasing with a lovely hardback cover and many of Tanya’s own photos are laced throughout. I also enjoy the professional photoshoot photos at the beginning of each chapter.

Tanya really worked hard on this book and made it for her fans and that is so obvious to see when you’re reading her writing. For me personally, it’s great to see more about the woman on the other side of my computer screen and really get to know her further.

Please go and check out Tanya’s book and channel (click here).

Beauty/Fashion: Black Lace Box Clutch

Standard

bagI rarely buy a new bag, I suppose I’m just not that kind of girl, but this weekend I bought this amazing clutch/shoulder bag and I love it so much I just have to recommend it.

As you can see in the pictures, it is a black and rose gold rectangular shaped clutch. The black panels are faux leather with a layer of black lace on top. I’m a massive fan of lace detailing in clothes and accessories and so this is why the bag caught my eye as I walked past it in New Look. It is lined with black polyester material and it comes with a rose gold chain attached to the top to transform the clutch into a shoulder bag; this which can be removed easily at the users’ choice.DSCF1300

Although small, as clutches typically are, the bag can fit quite a bit in, such as a phone, a thin purse, lip stick and other smaller personal belongings.

Even better was the price… originally £15.99, I managed to pick up the bag while it had a 25% discount which made it £12 instead.

If you want to pick up your own for £12, you can find it here. http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/bags-and-purses/black-lace-box-clutch-_341299001

PS. I cannot apologise enough for missing Friday. I can’t believe I didn’t post! Here is the post I was supposed to put up two days ago! Please forgive me…

YouTube: Ingrid Nilsen

Standard

Today I’m recommending Ingrid Nilsen. If you’re eagle eyed or have been paying attention to my blog for long enough, you’ll know that I have actually recommended her YouTube channel, Miss Glamorazzi, before but since then she has updated her second channel and uses that on a regular basis too. Therefore, I’m revisiting my previous recommendation (which you can find here) and adding to it.

Just as a brief explanat71ik6kFvion if you don’t know who Ingrid Nilsen is. She is a beauty guru on YouTube who, on her main channel, posts videos about beauty, make-up and fashion and on her second channel, which I am recommending most today, she posts vlog-style videos.

On her second channel, TheGridMonster, Ingrid tended to post vlogs of all varieties, sometimes sit-down, sometimes follow-me-around daily vlogs, in the past. Not to say that this has stopped but rather the channel has undergone some renovation, let’s say. The channel is now regularly used for the uploads of a weekly series called 5 Minutes For Us. I think it’s such a great series and really talks about issues and topics in a very mature and real way. These videos are just so honest and I love that every episode is different and tackles different types of issues and so forth.

Here are a couple examples:

I want to mention this because I think it’s important: Ingrid stormed the internet with her inspiring coming out video. Not only has Ingrid become one of the first popular female and first Beauty Guru (as far as I know) to come out, she has also provided a video with a strong message, a message that everyone should have their best chance in life and just be them. Be proud to be you. Don’t apologise for being you. It doesn’t matter, like REALLY doesn’t matter, what your sexual orientation is, full stop, but it also doesn’t matter what your orientation is for you to find the video encouraging and for the message to be relevant. To see for yourself, the video is below:

Thank you,
