My Favourite Five #8

This week was a grand week of meetings, birthday celebrations and eating healthily, but more on that tomorrow.  It's time to look back at the posts, bloggers and Youtubers that inspired me this week and made me want to buy stuff!

It warms the cockles of my heart when Laura from Buy Now, Blog Later talks about makeup like she did in this makeup ramble post.  It reminds me of back in the day when I used to watch her videos religiously, bought Gosh Darling even though it was horrendous on me and bought Nars Sheer Glow, even though I knew it wouldn't suit my skin tone and despite it breaking me out like a mofo, I tried to love it.  Such is the influence she had on me back in the day but now she's making me want to highlight my cheekbones with eyeshadow.

I'm obsessed with Fee's blog, MakeupSavvy and over the years she's made me spend so much money on beauty products and for that I curse and thank her at the same time because I've found some great bits I still use all the time.  I loved this post she wrote this week talking about 5 products she'd love to love but can't and feel her on the peel off mask and Yankee Candle picks!

If there's one thing that's certain, it's that Adrienne from The Sunday Girl does the most beautiful blog photos.  Her post featuring some new goodies from Tom Ford for spring 2014 made me gasp.  Actual gaspage.  I need both lipstick and nail polish and I don't care how much they are.  Peach and coral anything and I'm hooked.  Damn you Adrienne for having gorgeous photos and making me want to spend a month's worth of grocery money on two things, two beautiful things that I'd probably wear every day right?  Also, the day after reading her post, I was in Brown Thomas and walked by the Tom Ford counter only to see these beauts there.  Looking at me.  Luring me in.  Yes, I might have squeaked when I saw them but making noises I'm not in control of means I need them doesn't it?

I need more nail polishes like a kick in the head but when I saw Andreea of ArtDonatella showing off some matte Barry M polishes, I knew resistance would be futile and I'm not allowing myself into Boots until payday because I know I'll end up getting some of these.  Andreea has the most gorgeous nails on a human being and I know there's no way the shades will look as nice on me as they do on her but lads, could you please check out the shade Vanilla and tell me I don't need it?  I think it's love.

One of my favourite bloggers and YouTubers is Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup.  Her blog is beautiful and has plenty of gorgeous photos for me to drool over.  Her videos are equally as lovely, packed full of products I want to try and always beautifully shot.  Since the start of the year, my Sunday morning starts off with watching Anna's latest video over breakfast and I love it!  She uploads first thing on a Sunday so I know I'm going to be able to ease my way into the day and take my time while I prepare myself for the day ahead.  If you haven't subscribed to her already, then do it.  She's friendly, chatty and seems like a genuinely lovely person who could be your friend!

So these were my Favourite Five of the week!  Who are your favourite bloggers and YouTubers?  I'm always on the lookout for more lovely ladies to add to my reading/viewing lists, so leave any in the comments below!


  1. I remember watching Laura too! Buy now, blog later is just the most perfect blog name, I wonder why she hates her blush palettes though... I'd never heard of MakeupSavvy so thanks, following her now :)

  2. "The most gorgeous nails on a human being" hehehe. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, thank you m'dear! xo

  3. Thanks for the lovely mention :) I apologise for making you spend though hehe.

    I felt exactly the same way with Laura's makeup post this week!
