What I Watch: Peaky Blinders

What I Watch: Peaky Blinders

peaky blinders

Welcome to my new obsession: Peaky Blinders. This BBC/ Netflix period drama has really drawn me in and I ended up binging all seasons in the span of 2 weekends. The series is dark, violent and has a banger of a soundtrack. Set in 1920s Birmingham, the story revolves around the rise and near fall of Tommy Shelby and his family who run a gang that is both ruthless and struggles with gangster life. Now that I have watched seasons 1 – 5, I thought it was time for a review.

Ranking Face Palettes

Ranking Face Palettes

ranking my complete face palette collection from worst to best

A video I promised to do ages ago, but only now end up doing is the ranking of my face palette collection. I have quite a few, but the thing is: I never wear them! I mostly use them whenever I travel but I don’t travel enough to really have a use for this many. That said, I have some longstanding favorites that I go back to time and time again. So this ranking video was super easy to do. If you are curious to see which face palettes I have and how I rank them: then stay tuned!

Colourpop No Filter foundation

Colourpop No Filter foundation

colourpop no filter foundation fair 35 review swatch makeup look shade match

In this month’s shop my stash I decided to select the Colourpop No Filter foundation as one of two foundations to use this month. Earlier this year I already reviewed the accompanying concealer in this line. I liked it, but it emphasized my lines a bit because it has a drier, more matte finish. So it didn’t work well with my skin type. So I was skeptical to try the foundation, but since I had it lying about and I hadn’t given it a proper try yet, I finally decided to put in my rotation and review it for you.

The Balm Take Home The Bronze bronzer

Do you know what was one makeup product that surprised me? The one I am reviewing for you today: The Balm’s Take Home The Bronze. A good bronzer was difficult to find for me for a long time. Most were too orange, too muddy or just too dark. Even some cult favorites just didn’t work well. But then I found this! The packaging says it is anti-orange and it comes in three shades. Why do I love this so much? Well let’s find out shall we?

20 Not So Great Products, by 20 Brands, under 20 Minutes

20 not so great products by 20 brands under 20 minutes

Today’s video is one in which I talk to you about 20 products that sadly didn’t work for me by 20 different brands under 20 minutes. This is not meant as a roast of these brands, it’s just that some of my favorite brands also make products that don’t really gel well with me. So I thought we could chat about that. That being said, apologies for nothing going up yesterday, but I was a tad busy on Friday and I couldn’t squeeze in my usual allotted time for blogging. Whoopsie! I promise I will post the review that was supposed to have gone up later this week. On to today’s video!

Songs of the Moment

Songs of the Moment

If you know me, you’ll know I am always listening to new music. With that I mean new to me. I am a bit too busy to be able to stay on top of new releases constantly, but every 3 months of so I go through a bunch of indie release lists and find what I like best. I then give everything a whirl and select my favorites, only to repeat the process again. By now, I have had a good chance to listen to my last music update which I did in August. Here are 6 songs I am currently really digging.
