So I took the plunge and did my first vlog, my god it was so hard, hats off to the people who do this on a regular basis. It can take absolute ages editing if you are so particular about every detail. I sat there for hours cutting and adding then deleting things but I have to say I’m pretty excited about doing some more.
The most important thing is coming up with ideas for content but I’m enjoying it and I hope you do too. I started with the contents of my make up bag and I have to admit it’s quite minimal, hence the reason for a 7 min video. I am most certainly more of a skin care girl so you can hold your breath for make up tutorials haha.
Here is the link to my infamous first one;
What’s in my make up bag
I thought I would do a little list of items I have my eye on, but holding back the reins to buy it because the struggle is real, and you just have to stop spending like a crazy person. This is in no particular order of preference, because let’s face it, I want it all.
Gucci Leather Trimmed canvas waist belt – £270
Bobbie Brown Intensive Skin Serum foundation – £45
Glossier Phase 1 Set – $40
And Other Stories blouse – £69
Sandro – Mary Janes £239
Sezane – Farrow Bag £185
Go French – I am obsessed with my beret, you have to carefully consider what you wear with it, otherwise you feel incredibly silly.
I found a long sleeved stripy top with squiggly red writing and of course had to buy it, what a sucker for a stripy top. This was £20 from Topshop and perfect for layering. Oui oui mon cherie.
Sunglasses; Victoria Beckham , Shoes; Blondie Vintage at Spitalfields, Nail Varnish; Chanel, Bag; Tamara Fogle Bags, Beret & Stripy top; Topshop.
The highly anticipated collaboration between Erdem and H&M landed on Thursday 2nd. Look back to the night before the launch when I didn’t get a chance to go to a preview to purchase 2 pieces I have had my eye on for ages but no bother I’ll go online first thing only to realise the launch starts at 9 am which is an absolute let down. I underestimated the popularity of this collaboration and had to find out the hard way.
I work part time and Thursdays is a working day, first I have to drop off my son to my mum and then catch a bus to work, in my head it’s all sorted I’ll jump online around half 9 when I’m on the bus and I should get my bag and white frilly shirt. I drop my son off and started searching online at the bus stop only to find it’s sold out – oh my gosh, I was devastated, I honestly thought it wouldn’t be sold out that quick but it was, I managed to get the bag shown in the picture here but not the shirt. By the time I got to work for 10, everything was almost gone. In hindsight I would have gone online before I got on the tube, and purchased the items.
I noticed people were selling items on e-bay literally by 10am or even earlier, double or even triple the original price but you can’t stop people doing this. I stopped off at Westfield on the way home just by chance if it was there but it wasn’t so I’ll have to get an alternative. Ah I’m over it (not)
If you are off on a mini break somewhere I recommend the large longchamp bag pictured here. The space is rather large and deep which easily fits your essentials if planning a trip for a couple of nights. Better still you can pack the entire bag as it folds down to a small compact size for when you make those purchases and need another bag to take them home in.
Available here at a reasonable £65: http://uk.longchamp.com/luggage/le-pliage/large-travel-bag-1624089
I took a trip to Old Spitalfields market yesterday and found a little vintage market just opposite on Brushfield Street. I found a lovely leather bag with the letter’f’ for fashion rootle of course, and a gorgeous summer blouse with a round collar by Anne Fontaine. Everyone wants to look French chic and this combo will bring me a step closer. Both items were £35, a bargain indeed.
