Need a little cheering up? This is the video for you. After several hours trying to convince my Grandma that the Internet would LOVE her, she finally agreed to do a What’s In My Bag video. She’s the perfect person for a WIMB because she keeps some really wild and crazy gadgets in there including an ‘emergency change purse’, a diary she never has time to write in, safety scissors and much, MUCH MORE!

Make sure you go give this video a thumbs up on YouTube if you liked it and introduce my Grandma to your Grandma!

chloe_1 Chloe_2 Chloe_3 If you’ve read my blog or watched my channel for a while, you will know that my favourite perfume is the original Chloe fragrance, so you will understand my excitement when I saw these three miniature perfumes. Chloe has launched a limited edition trio of the three signature scents in tiny 20ml bottles. Available to buy separately, they are perfect for travelling as you’re able to take them on an airplane or to try a new fragrance before purchasing the larger size.

The trio includes Chloe Signature EDP (£35), L’Eau de Chloe EDT (£30) and Roses de Chloe EDT (£30) so there is something for everyone. Chloe Signature, my personal favourite, is a light sensual fragrance with a mixture of notes. Top notes include peony and freesia, with a middle of rose and magnolia and finishing with a base of cedar and amber. L’Eau de Chloe is a refreshing fragrance, which reminds me of the light breeze spring days that we’re experiencing right now. It’s a citrus scent with notes of rosewater, rose petals and patchouli. Roses de Chloe is for the people who love a floral rose scent; it’s the softer fragrance of the collection too. When created, they tried to capture ‘a walk down Parisian rose gardens’ and to put that into a bottle. The main notes which come through are damask rose, bergamot, magnolia and white musk.

Whether you’re looking to purchase a gift or are simply looking for a new fragrance for yourself, pop into a store to have a little spritz and tell me which one is your favourite!

Spring Spring Spring is finally here and the weather is warming up, which means I always like to add more colour into my make up bag. Every few months or so, I always try to mix up my make-up bag with a whole load of new products. What better way to celebrate Spring by using a new make up bag (I got this in the sale a few months ago so I can’t find the exact one online)! This cute make up bag is from Lulu Guinness, a brand I have definitely taken a liking to over the past year since I’m such a lipstick lover. It’s a simple black medium sized make up bag, which also wipes clean rather than machine washable, but it has a cute mini red lipstick charm on the zip. Lulu Guinness is famous for her lips bags, so you may have spotted those in stores before.

As the weather starts to warm up, my skin always becomes a little oilier so I tend to start reaching for primers and a lighter base options. Max Factor Face Infinity All Day Primer has been my go to primer for a few weeks now and I love it. It helps smooth everything out and it really helps with the appearance of large pores too. To pair with the primer, Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation in Ivory has been my go to foundation. Although it says it’s medium coverage, it doesn’t feel heavy at all which is always my aim when I look for a new foundation.

For bronzing, I’ve been using the Soap & Glory Solar Bronzer to add a little colour to my face. This bronzer is definitely comparable to more expensive products, it adds the right amount of colour as it contains two shades of bronzer. If you use a smaller brush, it’s very easy to just use one of side of the bronzer too. As I’m switching up shades for the warmer seasons, a sheer pink blush goes perfect with the rest of my make up so I’ve been reaching for the Burberry Rain or Shine limited edition blush. It’s a mid toned pink blush with a slight shimmer to it so I can easily skip highlighter too. When applying it with a light hand, it leaves a natural pink flush to the cheeks. As I’m always trying to brighten my eye area, I knew I would love the Bare Minerals Lasting Liner in Classic Cream in the waterline.

Recently, it’s been all about the lips for me. To prep lips, I’ve been using the EOS Organic Lip Balm Stick in Sweet Mint which nourishes the lips and leaves a perfect base for lipstick. To line the lips I’ve been opting for the Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in 005 which is a hot raspberry pink and the Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour in Pink is great for a bold pop of colour. The formula is super creamy with a pigmented shade which is build-able to a high pigment colour. Whenever I wear the Bobbi Brown lipstick and Burberry blush together, I always think they’re the perfect pairing. For the days when I want an orangey coral lip, I’ve been reaching for the Suqqu lipstick in 17 Akadaidai (Clear Orange). Suqqu is a brand I’m not too familiar with, it’s a Japanese brand with the ethos that make up should enhance a person’s natural features. It’s a creamy lipstick with the added benefits of a hydrating lip balm too.

What are your favourite products for the Spring season?
