I Started Vlogging!!


So I’ve mentioned once or twice that I would love to try my hand at vlogging. I’ve had a YouTube channel for years which I have dipped in and out of and never really taken too seriously. I’ve mainly used it to post Primark Hauls that translate a bit better through a video rather than photographs.

The other day without any forward thinking I switched the camera on and started chatting away. I clearly had no intentions of beginning a vlog as I’m wearing a massive hoodie (hood up looking all A- from PLL!) and no makeup. At 33 I’m pretty much over caring what I look like without makeup.


So I vlogged a rainy day where it was just me and Finn at home and showed how blogging looks behind the scenes with a 2-year-old in tow! I really enjoyed it and I love the editing process.I’ve carried on filming and introduced Finn’s Dad into the mix tonight. After he came home from 4 days away working. Poor sod! I bet he wanted to turn round and go back!

So I’ll hopefully get into the swing of chatting to the camera.It’s a weird thing to do! I’m planning to film more day in the life videos and take the camera on makeup jobs with me. So that should make for some interesting footage (I hope!) Anyway normal blogging will resume on here. I thought I’d just pop a link to my channel here in case you fancy checking it out. If you do I’d be really chuffed and I’d love to know what you think?



Urban Decay Naked Heat Makeup Looks #2 Scorched!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eye Makeup Look 5

Urban Decay Naked Heat

So if you can detect a little sadness in my eyes (or eye in this case) it’s because today’s look didn’t go quite to plan! Finn decided to cut his nap short by about an hour and he desperately wanted in on the action! I gave him an old eyeshadow palette and a (Lancome!)brush to occupy him but he was all about the Heat palette so I struggled big time! That plus the miserable weather in the UK today making for bad lighting the whole thing was pretty much doomed to fail from the get go! However, I’m not here to put a downer on your day and moaning isn’t really my thing! After some freaking out on my part the photos didn’t actually turn out half bad. Phew!

Urban Decay Naked Heat- 7 Looks in 7 days -Day 2 Simple smoke

Products used


To prime the lid- MAC Soft Ochre

Illamasqua loose powder

NAKED Heat shades used

‘Scorched’ (all over lid)

‘Ashes’ (through the crease and outer ‘V’ also smudged under lower lashes)

‘En Fuego’ (through the crease)

‘Lumbre’ (over inner 1/3 of the lid)


As I didn’t want to use a liquid or gel liner for this look I used a black eyeshadow from the Zoeva Nude spectrum palette on a push liner brush just along the top lashline. I also used my new favourite mascara, Makeup forever smokey lash. And a little bit of Bobbi Brown creamy concealer (porcelain peach) through the brow bone. All in all, it turned into quite a simple smokey eye. It’s definitely one that you could get away with wearing in the daytime. I’m expecting an eyelash delivery from Amazon tomorrow so the rest of the week’s looks should be a bit more exciting!

I hope you are enjoying this series so far! See Day 1 here.Let me know if you have this palette and what your favourite shades and looks to do with it are!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Makeup Looks- #1 Low Blow


Urban Decay Naked Heat Eye Makeup Look 5

The Naked Heat palette is everywhere right now and for all of the right reasons. It really is a beautiful palette and of course, because it’s from Urban Decay the shadows are beyond dreamy both to look at and to work with. That’s why even though I only posted my initial thoughts last week (here) I wanted to dedicate a series of posts to it over the next week that will allow me to use every shade to create various looks.

So today I was planning on going for a very natural look.  Does anyone else find that when they tell themselves ‘go natural’ the total opposite always happens?? See the thickness of that winged liner? That was not supposed to be there. I do quite like how this turned out regardless of my rebellion.

Unlike my last Naked Heat post where I was a right giddy kipper and used 7 shades to create a look. I was much more reserved this time and just used three.

‘Low Blow’-crease

‘Cayenne’-Crease and outer V

‘Ounce’- Inner corner highlight

I also ran ‘Low Blow’ and ‘Cayenne’ under the lower lashes

Other products used

Illamasqua loose powder to set

Technic Skinny liquid liner (Review on that here)

Avon Supershock gel liner

Hopefully, these posts will give you ideas for looks that you can do with this palette or any similar eyeshadows you have. As well as giving me an excuse to play with the palette some more and put out some relaxed non-review type content. In case you are fed up of hearing about this palette already. I’ll be posting as usual in between doing these looks so please do stick around.
