As I already mentioned in my previous posts… I am in a style rut. This is an attempt for me to actually wear things that I like now. I am tired of wearing inappropriate clothes for the weather and trying to make them work. Nowadays the only thing that matters is comfort. Ok. Not gonna lie – while still being stylish.
So here’s my first ever makeup tutorial. I’ve always wanted to make one ever since I first started watching makeup tutorials because they seem sooo fun! So here is mine 🙂
It’s a glittery pink/purple toned eye makeup look. I think it would be great for a birthday dinner or if you’re just bored with using neutral colours on your lids. Here’s a subtle little twist to it!
So a few days ago, my friend Chitra and I went to the first ever Beautycon in the UK! I don’t really know how to properly explain this event but it’s basically a beauty convention, just like the name. There are panels featuring a lot of YouTubers, stalls of beauty brands and you get to meet your favourite YouTubers in the meet & greet as well. It was sooo nice to finally meet the girls that had been a part of my daily routine for quite a while now. I usually see them behind my computer screen but being able to physically hug them and talk to them (even for a bit) felt quite unreal! I didn’t talk to them as much as I wanted to because I was being a chicken, as usual, but you know, at least I got to meet them and share the luv!
The first thing that was happening in the event was the meet & greet with Estee Lalonde, I was so excited to meet her but we were a bit late (of course). When we came in there was already a huuuge queue for her meet & greet. We waited for a good half an hour or probably even more. I was guessing a lot of people chatted with her for quite a long time by the time we queued up, and halfway through queueing the line went a bit faster, probably because time is running out. Enough with the chitter chatter, it was slowly my turn and I was hella nervous because I didn’t know what to talk about with her with such a short amount of time. I walked up to her and we said hi and hugged, Estee immediately said, “oh my god your outfit is on point!” and my whole day was honestly made. It’s only been an hour! We took a picture and she complimented my outfit yet again! I was kinda freaking out so I was like “oh my god thank you so much omg” and she was probably freaked out but ya know! We didn’t get to chat because she said there’s only 10 minutes left and the queue is literally still sooo long. So we parted our ways with Estee.
We then walked around and watched a few panels, browsed around, getting some free goodies from the stands (got a free mini Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and a free NYX product!) and seeing a few smaller YouTubers walking by. I really regret not talking to them. Beautycon is also about meeting people who share the same interests as you and I kinda just wasted that part of it. I’ve learned my lesson though and will not do that again in the next one!
Chitra and I then queued up to meet Amelia Liana and Claire Marshall (heyclaire). Although I looove Amelia, I’ve met her before so I was ecstatic to finally meet Claire! The queue wasn’t as long as Estee’s because we were quite quick in the queue. It was our turn and Amelia looked a bit happy but puzzled at the same time as she greets us. She then said to me, “have we met before…?” and yes Amelia, we have!!! I was so surprised that she remembered me, I did not expect that at all. After hugging Claire, she also complimented my outfit. So my outfit that day is officially an EssieButton-and-Claire-Marshall-approved outfit! After taking a picture, that was kinda it. I was so nervous I literally couldn’t form words properly and kinda just said goodbye a short while after that. WHY DID I DO THAT?!?!
After that we saw a couple of panels, one of which was by Sarocha, a smaller vlogger, talking about how to set up your own channel and all of that good stuff. So in conclusion… I went to Beautycon just to meet my favourite people lol it was still good fun though! Just wish I maximised my time and opportunity there a lot more.
I don’t even have anymore excuses to explain why it took me two years to finally finish this video. I guess I gotta admit that I forgot that I had to work on this video, and was too lazy to continue. Since I made a channel, I thought it would be a great time and opportunity to finally publish this video.
My friend, Heidy, came to me for help with her scholarship programme entry for BA fashion marketing in Paris, of course I was more than happy to help! She created the overall concept of the project and I helped her execute the ideas into a video. I have to be honest, I don’t really remember what the task was, but she had to pick a highstreet fashion brand and simply market the brand (I think). She chose Pull & Bear for this and through this video, we wanted to show how versatile this clothing line is. You won’t find just one style. It can be edgy, it can be playful, and it can be a bit bohemian.
Tell me what you think of the video! I’m personally really proud of it somehow 🙂
If you’ve been reading my blog somehow, you know I was in years of constant debate with myself whether I should create a YouTube channel or not. Look, ma! I did it!
This is just an introduction video where I invite you round for a cup of tea and chat a bit about my channel and its background. If you really MUST know now, I will post fashion and beauty videos. I won’t just post lookbooks, I will also give you tips and advice (if you will) on fashion! I might also post some cinematographic stuff because that’s also what I like.
Please go on and subscribe to my channel because I have a pretty cool video coming up next week, if I do say so myself. 😉 I’d really, really, genuinely appreciate it.
