Affordable Gel Nails At Home


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


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!

  • L’Oreal ‘True Match’ and ‘Lumi – Magic’ Foundation

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation


Since I recently uploaded my ‘Top Luxury Products’ video I thought I would share an old blog post on the foundation that I mentioned. Nearly nine months later and I’m still in love!

I purchased the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation just before I left for Italy (spending some hard earned Boots Advantage Card points) and I’m so glad I did. I’m ridiculously picky with foundation, I find that many pale foundations can be too pink for my skin tone (thankfully this is changing). I’m always conscious about my face looking like it’s wearing foundation- I like my base to look as natural as possible so that I can add to it with other products. This foundation is lightweight but buildable with a natural, glowy finish. It makes the skin look satin smooth and is hardly detectable on the skin. This has been reformulated to include extra hydration- just what I need when my skin is more exposed to the sun and heat more than ever. I’ve put the foundation on with both a stippling brush and a beauty sponge (both by Real Techniques, FYI) and both do the job perfectly. I am in LOVE and I’m sure it’ll be a while before another foundation takes its place.
