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
When Monday comes around so quick and you freak out with the amount of things to organise. Never fear the day can’t be bad if you have happy copper boots to cheer you right up for a cold Monday morning.
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.

You notice some people are active and some people are not, I’m afraid I’m the latter. Recently I’ve been thinking how I can improve on this so took the plunge and got myself a membership, finally no excuses. Let’s face it they will take my money whether I go or not, so if that’s not motivation to go, not sure what is.
I’m 6 weeks in and I’m enjoying it, you start to see results and it spurs you on even more. There are a lot of chumps at the gym, one guy literally hovered behind me until I finished on a machine, asking me if he could get on there. Last time I checked I wasn’t wearing an invisible cloak.
I was sceptical of the Ivy Park range from Topshop but this sports bra top has passed the test, durable and comfortable, yet supporting. Might go head to toe in it.
The real test is walking to the gym in the dark and cold, no pain, no gain they say.
It's a Mango and Topshop ting – I love my new #darling tee from Mango via Asos brings a bit of pow to your outfit. Heart shaped sunglasses from a boutique in shoreditch which surprisingly has some cool shades for a tenner a pop, but I can't remember what's it's called, I'll find out and update.

Like how I am supposed to get my head round the fact that summer could be over? was that it? I did not want to get out of bed this morning, the weather can’t make its mind up whether it wants to rain or not. I’m already considering getting my hot water bottle out no lie. Here is my take on comfort and unwinding for bed, the face mask I’ve used once already and it is devine, I would highly recommend.

You are either a bag girl or a shoe girl and I’m most certainly the latter. I purchased 3 pairs this week and have zero regrets. This pair was one of them, pointed mules on sale at office.
Pointed mules £20 by Office; Backpack by Topshop £22
I promise you I’m not an ambassador for Topshop I just love their stuff…
Vienna ruffle slingbacks in red by Topshop-£29
You know me, I’m obsessed with a still life!
Sandals by Topshop; purse by Topshop; choker by dum dum dum Topshop; Headphones by Marshall.
Gap ripped Jeans; Topshop bag; Birkenstocks Arizona; Christopher Raeburn Map tee; Heart shaped sunglasses from a Boutique in shoreditch.
I stole my kid sisters choker, she said she bought it from Topshop at £2, that’s less than a latte. It is lush. I have been inspired to get one. I think for me it’s far too edgy but not when you team with a jacket that looks like I’m about to fly a plane. A good balance.
