My New Youtube Love | Carrie Hope Fletcher

For quite a while I've been stuck in a bit of a youtube rut, I'm subscribed to and love watching so many different channels whether they have millions of subscribers or a couple thousand. However when it came to British youtubers I was only really subscribed to the hugely popular channels such as Zoella, Tanya Burr, Marcus Butler etc.. I still love these channels but recently I've been branching out slightly. After Louise (aka a SprinkleofGlitter) showed Jack Howard in many a video I soon found myself watching all his old videos and really truly loving them. Jack is huge on youtube but his content was a little different to what I normally watched so I'd never found myself watching him before. He mentioned Carrie in a recent video and I wondered why I'd never checked her out since I'd known who she was for quite a while so I ventured on over to ItsWayPastMyBedtime, and oh my goodness... I had seriously been missing out! 
Carrie just makes me smile. She's truly a beautiful person inside and out. She could talk about what she ate for tea last night and make it sound poetic. I'm yet to watch all her videos (which I will get around to!) but so far my favourite video has been 'To My Sixteen Year Old Self'. It's just so lovely to watch and I may have teared up slightly.... Carrie makes it seem like she's only talking to you through the camera, like she's giving big sisterly advice which is hard not to adore. 
So far this is what I have learnt about her, 
     -she's extremely talented at singing and songwriting to name a few 
     - a Disney fan esp of Tangled (something we share)
     - a book enthusiast  
     - also a cake fanatic and tea drinker
And yes she is Tom from McFly's sister..

Ehm is there somewhere I can apply to be Carrie's best friend oooor..? 

Pleaseeeeee check out her channel if like me you hadn't before!! And if you're having a bit of a crappy day her videos will definitely work as a pick me up. 
(You should also check out Jack Howard too, he's hilarious and makes fab content) 

What's your favorite video of Carrie's you think I should check out?
Hope you guys enjoyed!
Love, Julie xx


Soap&Glory Makeup | First Impressions

So I'm sure you guys all know that quite a while ago Soap&Glory released a makeup line that's pretty popular. 
finally got round to picking up a few bits the other day and thought I'd share my first impressions. 
First up is the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Bashful. These have been raved about by youtubers such as FleurdeForce and Gabby from Velvetghost. My first thought was that it's quite similar to the Revlon Lip Butters in colour pay off and feeling on the lips, great for people who love the look of a slight glossy lip without the sticky feeling. I chose the colour Bashful which is the pale pink of the range, great for every day wear and perfect to throw on throughout the day to add a little bit of colour to your face and make yourself look more refreshed. Can't wait to see how the lasting power is and how it wears throughout the day.

The second thing I picked up was the Solar Powder Bronzer. Again many people have been talking about this bronzer saying how great it is for contouring and adding some natural colour to your face. I tried it out when I first got it and the colour is perfect, not too orange or muddy on my face, definitely doesn't make you look like an Oompa Loompa! Also has great pigmentation, don't have to be overly cautious when applying.

Overall I have some pretty high hopes for these products and will definitely be putting them to the test over the next few weeks. Maybe you'll see them in a future blog post if they become a staple of mine! Will be checking out more of the Soap&Glory range soon. 

Have you tried any of the S&G makeup? 
What are your fav S&G products?

Hope you guys enjoyed!
