Summer Sandals! <3

I am loving the weather over the last few days and so I’ve been on the hunt for some Summer footwear. I fell in love with these gladiator style sandals and think they are a must this season!

HEEY! <3

I am loving the weather over the last few days and so I’ve been on the hunt for some Summer footwear. I’ve recently bought some new black flip flops and I’ve also got some cute leopard print sandals from last year but I fell in love with these gladiator style sandals and think they are a must this season!

There is a cute shop in my local town called Limelight that sells gorgeous clothing, footwear and accessories. They have recently started selling these lovely gladiator style sandals in a variety of colours for just £29.99. They’re comfortable to wear and easy to put on with two buckle straps that go across your foot. I love to style them with a pair of high waisted shorts and a white strappy top which helps bring attention to their strap design.

Tan coloured sandals are my absolute fave because they look great with just about everything. How do you style your gladiator sandals? <3

New Makeup Tutorial! <3

I love uploading new videos on a Sunday because for me, Sunday is a day to snuggle up in bed with a cup of tea whilst watching a whole load of makeup tutorials. Yesterday I decided to film a new look that features some orange and purply-reddy shades. I am a huge fan of these makeup shades right now and this look is perfect for a night out with the girls!

I love uploading new videos on a Sunday because for me, Sunday is a day to snuggle up in bed with a cup of tea whilst watching a whole load of makeup tutorials. Yesterday I decided to film a new look that features some orange and purply-reddy shades. I am a huge fan of these makeup shades right now and this look is perfect for a night out with the girls!

I really enjoy just playing around with different shades of eyeshadow to find out what looks good. You can get a lot of inspiration from watching other YouTubers and it has taught me so much about different makeup techniques. What was life like before YouTube hey?

So here is the look I created yesterday:

I used various products, including some that I hadn’t tried before from Too Faced Cosmetics. This video also features products from Mac Cosmetics, Benefit Cosmetics, NARS and Be Bella Cosmetics. <3

I had an absolute nightmare editing the video though. I was just about to save it in iMovie but the share options were just grey so I couldn’t click them. Usually I can sort this issue by saving the movie to ‘Theatre’ and then exporting it from there but I was trying to solve the issue for hours with no joy! I found the section of the video that was causing the issue because iMovie was still ‘referencing my camera’ for this clip so in the end I had to re edit this whole section of my video… grr nightmare! The reason I’m sharing this with you is because I’m hoping someone may be able to help with this? I’m seriously thinking of upgrading to Final Cut Pro X.

Annnnyway, if you’re interested in finding out more on how I achieved this makeup look then please checkout my tutorial. I would also be really grateful if you gave the video a ‘thumbs up’ and subscribe to my channel if you want to see future videos… That’s if I don’t smash my laptop up out of frustration with iMovie in the mean time (tehee).

California Dreaming

Long time no see! I can’t believe it’s been weeks since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been crazy busy catching up with work since I got home from LA. We had such an amazing holiday so I thought I’d reminisce with a blog post on what we got up to.

Long time no see! I can’t believe it’s been weeks since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been crazy busy catching up with work since I got home from LA. We had such an amazing holiday so I thought I’d reminisce with a blog post on what we got up to.

We stayed at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown LA which was absolutely beautiful. They had a gorgeous swimming pool with sauna and hot tub, as well as a large gym. The hotel itself is known for being the early home to the Academy Award Ceremony for the Oscars. The interior was stunning and staff were so friendly.

We had some amazing day trips and all were easy to get to by Uber. Our day trips included visiting Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Hollywood sign, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Santa Monica, Laguna beach, Venice Beach and so much more. We also watched the LA Galaxy play as well as watching the LA Lakers win against Miami Heat!

During our last week in LA I spent a morning visiting Too Faced Cosmetics HQ. It was like heaven and was such an amazing opportunity.

Here are just a few photos from our holiday:

 

Reality soon hit us and now we’re back in the UK preparing ourselves for Summer! Anyone who is planning a trip to LA, please get in touch and I’d be happy to provide you with any recommendations and tips that you might need 🙂

Hey everyone!

So whilst I’m sat here watching Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway I’ve decided to write a post on my favourite purchases for this month.. Kinda like a monthly favourites.

I’ve been stocking up on a few bits this month because in 3 weeks time I will be jetting off to Californ-I-A! I’m super excited and I will be vlogging my whole trip over on my YouTube channel. So if you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet then just search ‘Abbyeautifulx’ over on YouTube to follow my adventures next month! I’ve got some exciting trips planned for whilst I’m out there including a visit to Too Faced HQ and a trip to LA INK – High Voltage Tattoo Studio.

So yes, back to the subject of this post… My February Favourites, here we go…

February Favourite #O1

You may or may not have seen the blog post i published last weekend on the Spectrum Collections makeup brushes (mermaid inspired)… Well of course I needed to buy a mermaid inspired bag to match. This rose gold shell bag is from Skinny Dip London, one of my favourite shops right now! They sell so many sweet bags, phone cases and random bits & bobs that you could spend hours on their website or in their store in London. I’ve decided to remove the strap and use this shell bag as a makeup bag for my trip to LA. This sweet phone case (iPhone 5S) matches perfectly and is also from Skinny Dip London.

February Favourites #O2

Nike Air Max Thea Black – £90 <3

I’ve had my eyes on the Nike Air Max Thea trainers for weeks and I desperately wanted them in a khaki/camel colour but they had completely sold out, apart from on eBay where they were selling for a couple of hundred (£££)… Gutted. I then made a decision on whether to purchase them in white/grey or black. I thought grey initially because right now grey is my favourite, but then I decided on black because they will go well with anything. I decided to buy these because they are the perfect shoes to wear whilst shopping in LA.. I mean every girl needs a pair of shoes to go shopping in doesn’t she?!

They’re super comfy and I know that if I were to wear any other type of shoe to stroll around LA in then my feet would be killing by lunchtime (NOT GOOD)! I’ve made the uncomfortable shoe mistake one too many times and I’m not about to do it again…

February Favourites #o3

Third and final favourite for this month are these matching hoodie and trackie bottoms from Rebellious Fashion. As I previously mentioned, grey is my favourite colour right now so this matching set is gorgeous! It’s so comfy to wear just lounging around the house but also looks great to wear out. I’m not one for wearing crop tops, but the trackie bottoms are high waisted which makes them perfect.

Mermaid Inspired Makeup Brushes <3

Happy Valentines Day Eve! I’ve decided to do a post on my new makeup brushes from Spectrum Collections because they are so adorable 🙂 I mean, how can you not fall in love with these?

Hey girlies (and guys, of course)

Happy Valentines Day Eve! I’ve decided to do a post on my new makeup brushes from Spectrum Collections because they are so adorable 🙂 I mean, how can you not fall in love with these?

Love at first sight <3

I have been a huge fan of mermaids since I was a child, watching Disneys Little Mermaid on repeat. I used to draw pictures of mermaids all the time and I wished I had a fish tail instead of legs (thank god that didn’t come true!).

So now my big obsession is makeup brushes and what better than a set of mermaid inspired brushes? The bristles are so soft and great for blending. They’re so beautiful I just want to keep them clean all the time.

Ombre is also extremely popular these days so the style of bristles are really beautiful. Spectrum Collections also sell a variety of mermaid inspired brush cases and other accessories so I would definitely recommend browsing their site if you’re a mermaid fan too!
