The Week When I Visited YouTube Space London

What an eventful week! I survived my first job interview, went to a beauty vloggers' event at YouTube Space London, had my hair dyed pink, finally managed to open a UK bank account and visited the nearby Portobello Market. I told you a lot has been going on...

Q&A: My Experience of Moving Abroad & My New Life

You know you're busy when you realize you forgot to share a video you published more than a week ago. Oopsie! It's a Q&A one and might be interesting to those of you curious about my new life and my experiece of moving abroad all by myself. I'm thinking about doing one Q&A video a month, so if you have any questions for me, please leave them below. 

Winter Beauty & Random Favourites

Since I haven't filmed any favourites videos in quite a while, I thought I would put together a winter one and talk about all beauty products and random things I've been loving during the past few months. You know the drill. Now watch the video! :D

Kiko Smart Lip Pencils Review

Kiko Smart Lip Pencils Review

Can we just call these game changers? I've never been much of a lip liner kind of gal until I discovered Milani's 'Nude' Color Statement Lip Liner a few months ago,  but when Kiko's Smart Lip Pencils made their way into my makeup drawer, my new obsession reached a whole new level. I can't get enough of them! They are every makeup lover's dream - cheap as chips, yet of excellent quality. They go on very smoothly, don't dry your lips out, provide the matte finish everyone's been loving this past season and last ALL DAY. Believe it or not, they can even survive meals. Tried and tested. I currently have three shades (710, 706 & 705) that I wear either on their own or paired with lipsticks, but I think it's safe to say there will be many more joining the collection as soon as I get a job and have money for things like makeup again. I don't know whether I should thank my friend Joanna for introducing me to these or kill her for making me spend money on something that is not rent or food. I have a bad feeling about this. I feel like I'll just walk into Kiko one day and buy the whole line. Cuz I'm crazy like that...

Have you by any chance tried these? Are there any shades I need to get sooner than the others? Right now, my favourite one is 710 Rouge Noir, which by the way goes perfectly with my 'Rebel' lipstick by MAC, but since spring is coming up quite soon, I feel like I should start looking for something brighter.

The Week When I Explored East London

After weeks of living in the central London bubble and not exploring any unknown areas, I finally turned my tourist mode on again. Lu and I decided to go check out Broadway Maket, and ended up exploring Hackney. The area doesn't have the best reputation, but it isn't as bad as it might seem at first sight. I'm not going to lie, I did have a bit of a weird feeling about it when I first stepped off the train. It looked very industrial and creepy, but once we started walking up the Regent's Canal and made it to Victoria Park, it was like a whole different world. As it turns out, even 'the dark side' of London has its charms. I took lots of footage, so don't forget to watch my weekly vlog below, in which I'm also talking about more bank problems, my internship promotion and trash bags full of makeup. 

The Week When I Had the Best Brunch

Last week definitely started on a good note. Or should I say ended? The week before last? This Sunday to Saturday weekly vlog schedule is making me really confused. But that's beside the point. The main point is the brunch I had at Belsize Park's Ginger & White, a cute little coffee shop definitely worth a visit. It was delish and very photogenic. I was one very happy instagrammer to say the least. To see how it looked like and what else has been going on in my life, click the play button below. 

About A Year Ago Tag

Yes, this video is very new year-ish. Reflecting on the past year and setting up goals for the new year is something you usually do in the beginning of January, but better late then never, right? Anyway, 2014 has been a very eventful year for me. There has been a lot of ups, a lot of downs, a lot of milestones and a lot of life lessons. If you've been following my blog religiously for the past year, you should already be familiar with most of the events that occured in my life in 2014, but if you're new here and want to catch up, this is your chance! Oh, and don't worry, there's something for those of you who are already up to date as well. For one, I'm talking about my favourite beauty products of 2014! And revealing my plans for the future. Or the lack thereof...
