My Month Long ‘Blogcation’

IMG_3395

It’s been just over a month since I decided to take a break from blogging (‘Blogcation’, get it?) and pretty much all social media. This overwhelming fake followers and constant stat checking was taking up a lot of time (and patience!). At the beginning of the year I had set myself targets for how much content I wanted to make across all my media platforms, but with work and life in general it didn’t quite work out how I planned.

I started to panic and look for quick and easy video ideas for my YouTube channel, and I’d post photographs that I wasn’t happy with because I felt like as long as I had something up, it was better than nothing- right?

I realised that’s not what I want my blog or YouTube channel to be about. I only want to publish well thought out content which really reflects me. If I’m being completely honest I’m not in a position where I can afford to upload an ASOS haul or unboxing every week.

So I’m back, refreshed and ready to restart a more curated blog that truly reflects my life at this moment in time. I hope you keep reading 🙂

Hi everyone!

I promise I’m getting back into the swing of writing proper blog posts- so stay tuned!

However, at the moment I’m loving making YouTube videos, it’s so much fun 🙂

Onto my latest video. One of my New Years resolutions was to start taking better care f myself and doing small things that make me feel good. For me, having a nice manicure is one of those things! In this video I’m sharing all the products I’ve been using to get a high quality gel manicure at home- I really hope you like it!

Romantic Red & Pink Make Up

IMG_3193.JPG

I’ve been seeing red & pink together everywhere this last month! I first noticed this trend watching all my favourite YouTubers attend the Fashion Weeks around the world.

The colour clashing has been featured in both make up looks and clothes. I currently have my eye on this amazing jumper from ‘& Other Stories’ – although it won’t get too much wear here in Italy as it’ll be way too hot in a couple of months!

However, something I can do to take part in this trend is an easy red and pink make up look. I’m sure most make up lovers have similar products to recreate this look in their make up collection just like I did.

I hope you enjoy this video and I would appreciate it so much if you would subscribe!
