Topshop and Boots Haul

I am sure that some of you will be able to sympathise with the gravitational pull of Topshop, so I hope you all understand that this is an "accidental" haul. I found myself amongst the shelves of pointed flats and rails of pleather trousers and suddenly the overused debit card was out ...

About Me TAG!

I had been requested to do an "About Me TAG" video and I thought it would be nice for you all to get to know me a bit better. I think all I have talked about in my videos so far is neon nail polish and Parisian pharmacies! So grab a cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit and lets have a chat.

NOTD: Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Rouge Noir

After having a bit of a rant in my Top 5 Summer Nail Polishes video about the poor quality of Chanel nail polishes, I feel rather sheepish while I type away at this post with my deep red - you could say Red Black ;) - nails. In my defence, it was raining and after watching Love Actually in my Snowman onesie, I felt worryingly festive. The mint greens and pale pinks just weren't doing it for me polish wise and so I grabbed the first maroon-y colour I could find ... just so happened that it was the infamous Chanel Rouge Noir. Oops. 

Two coats later and I was pretty impressed with the application. Quick to dry and super glossy, this can't be the Chanel nail polish I know. Can it? A top coat was whipped on - Sally Hansen Double Duty FYI - and I went on with my day with an uneasy feeling but damn, my nails looked good! 

A couple of days in and there is not a chip to be seen. Although I am still pretty dubious about Chanel's Nail Polish line, I do think I maybe was originally a bit harsh on the old Classic that is Rouge Noir. Yes they are atrociously expensive but a little bit of Chanel in my life can't be a bad thing!

Empty Products # 1

As I write this post I am feeling rather productive, I have just thrown out an unhealthy amount of empty products that were cluttering my room. Surely this means I can justify some naughty purchases in the future ... Watch my latest video on my thoughts on them.

Holiday Packing: Makeup and Skincare

The panic that comes over us when we contemplate packing for our well deserved holiday is truly terrifying - 'Do I have enough SPF', 'Why did I use up ALL of my new BB cream?! I will never shop at Dior again.' and 'Where is my razor?'. Here is my, slightly calmer, packing video. Made in the hope that it might help you pack - either that or it will be a terrible distraction from the hair remover search. Sorry ...
