I’m Back From Hong Kong…And Have Some News!

I very rarely do general life update posts here on my blog, but after the past two weeks of being away I feel one is long overdue! If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, you’ll know that myself and Tiz have been away in Hong Kong for a little while…and you may have spotted our rather exciting piece of news!

On our first night in Hong Kong, whilst looking out over the skyline, my best friend and amazing partner of 6 and a half years asked me to marry him…and I said YES! The whole proposal was magical, and I feel like I’ve been living in a dream ever since. I don’t want to get too mushy, but when I say I’m the happiest girl in the world, I truly believe it with all my heart!

Myself and my fiancé (I don’t think I’ll EVER get bored of saying that…until I’m saying husband, of course!) will be making a video all about our engagement story soon, so we’ll save some photos for that video, but here’s one of our favourites from Hong Kong together. We were at the Ozone Bar on the 118th floor of the Ritz hotel, the world’s highest bar, celebrating our engagement a couple of days afterwards. My dress is from the wonderful Black Milk and my shoes were from Boohoo (although I could have worn a bin bag for the entire holiday and still felt like I was floating on Cloud 9!)

We can’t wait to share some more details with you! It’s safe to say that Hong Kong is our favourite place in the world, and will forever be incredibly special to us – I can’t wait to go back one day, and look forward to all of the adventures Tiz and I will have together in the future!

Thank you all for your amazing messages of congratulations, I had tears in my eyes reading them all and every time I spot a new one I get all emotional again! You are all beautiful people, inside and out.

Stay Creative,

Huge Hair & Haircare Q&A!

I have rather a lot of hair. It’s a fact that cannot be denied – my hair is ridiculously long, and now officially reaches the bottom of my back (I didn’t even realise until the other day!). I get asked a lot of questions about it, ranging from how I keep volume in it to how I have it highlighted, and decided to answer all of the queries in a huge Q&A video!

I mentioned quite a few products in the video, from hair brushes to shampoos and conditioners, so if you’re interested in any of them here are some handy little links! What a helpful/totally enabling soul I am ;)

♥ Michel Mercier Brush
 Tangle Teezer
 John Frieda Luxurious Volume Range
 John Frieda Sheer Blonde Range
 Percy & Reed Really Rather Radiant Conditioner
 Redken Color Extend Magnetics Range
 Mark Hill Hairdryer
 Schwarzkopf Heat Angel Spray
 Batiste Blonde Dry Shampoo

I’m super sorry if I wasn’t able to answer your question in the video – I’m more than happy to reply to any questions in the comments, both on this post and my video! Just leave them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

There was one particular question in the video that I’d like to pose to you guys too – if you could have the hair of anyone else in the world, who would it be? Let me know!

Weird & Wonderful Tag: Questions

I’m often asked to do Tag  videos over on my YouTube channel, but I sometimes find that a lot of those videos produce the same answers from everyone – you can almost hear the whispers of ‘Urban Decay Naked Palette’ ripple around YouTube when the ‘favourite palette’ question comes up!

That’s why I decided to create a brand new tag, where everyone’s answers would be totally different. Introducing…the Weird & Wonderful Tag!

In the video I tagged four awesome girls – Gemma, Bunny, Zoe and Becky – and I also tag all of my viewers too! If you’d like to take part in the tag, here are the questions:

1. What’s the most weird & wonderful thing in your room right now?

2. What’s one of the most unusual things you’ve ever bought for yourself?

3. What’s the weirdest gift you’ve ever given to someone else?

4. What’s your most unusual piece of clothing?

5. What’s the most unusual pair of shoes you own?

6. What’s the most unusually awesome beauty product you use?

7. What’s the most bizarre book you own?

8. What’s the most weird & wonderful Instagram photo you’ve ever taken?

9. What’s the most unusual item in your home?

10. Who is the most weird & wonderful person you know?

If you decide to take part in the Tag video, let me know! I’d love to watch your video and see your answers to the questions :)

Do I Still Like Avril Lavigne?!

YouTube Update: As of this week, I will be posting videos on YouTube every Wednesday and Saturday. I think it’s about time I had a proper schedule and I’m excited to post more regularly too!

Avril Lavigne Fan Chyaz Meet

If you’ve been a viewer of mine on YouTube for a while, you’ll know that lots of my early videos were about my favourite singer, Avril Lavigne. I gained some of my most loyal followers through Avril-related make up tutorials and update videos, and I’m often asked questions about whether I’m still a big Avril fan, and what I think of her music, style and life.

I decided to make an FAQ video where I answered all of these questions! I also showed some of my favourite Abbey Dawn pieces (if you’re not familiar with the brand, it’s Avril’s clothing line!) and addressed some of the controversy surrounding her video for Hello Kitty.

I answered certain questions about things like my favourite songs from each album, and what it was like to meet her back in 2011. I’d love to hear your answers to these questions too! If you’ve been lucky enough to meet Avril, what was your experience like? Plus, which songs do you love most from her 5 albums?

Stay Creative,

P.S. if you hadn’t already guessed…the answer to the question in the title is YES!
