I recently got to glam up my friend Jess, so we went for a bronze, Kardashian inspired glam – a sultry, smokey bronzed look paired with a nude lip is very reminiscent of Kim Kardashian’s makeup looks around 2014/2015. This type of a look is what inspired the makeup I did for Jess:

It’s glam but not overly dramatic, and the gold/bronze tones really accentuate Jess’s gorgeous blue eyes!

This is more of a chatty get ready with us style video as opposed to a tutorial, but I included each product used and a brief description of each step!
We hope you enjoy!

Jess’s channel is currently under construction, so I’ll share that with you as soon as it’s up! Stay tuned for our cooking video!

In October I got to travel to Florida with my best friend, to visit Disneyworld and Universal Studios during their Halloween season.

It was one of the best trips I’ve ever been on. We spent 10 days in Florida, doing the full Disney experience. We visit all 4 disney Parks and Universal Studios. We went in October as we both love Halloween, and Halloween in Disney was on both of our bucket lists! The Hollywood Horror Nights was so insanely fun – not to mention scary. One of us, and I’m not going to name names, *cough*Claudia*cough* may or may not have cried in the American Horror Story haunted house. Universal Studios transforms into a place of Halloween magic and scariness after dark, and it’s something every Halloween lover should experience.

If you’re not a fan of scariness, then Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is pure whimsical Halloween bliss. It’s full of pumpkins, trick or treating, and a show and was one of the best nights of my life.

I can’t wait to go back to Disney soon!

For my third giveaway, one winner will receive a brand new, full-size refillable Angel Eau De Parfum from Thierry Mugler.

Angel launched in 1992, and revolutionised the fragrance industry. It’s truly one of the most unique fragrances on the market.

Classified as an oriental vanilla, it has notes of bergamot, vanilla, red berries, caraway, nutmeg, sandalwood, patchouli, tonka bean, praline, and more. It’s sweet and strong, lasting all day long due to the high concentration of perfume oil in every drop!

Here’s a tip for the Mugler fragrances: do not spray multiple sprays directly on the skin. It’s simply way too strong when applied this way as the perfumes are so concentrated. Instead, spray a little in the air before you get dressed, and walk through it!

I’m also including a mini sample – that way you can try it before opening to see if its the right fragrance for you!
