New Blog

As you may have seen I haven’t been posting much on this blog recently. That’s because I have decided to start a new one with the Blogger platform as WordPress restricts templates and I wanted my blog to be more personal to me. My new blog url is monochrome-vogue.blogspot.co.uk

If I feel unhappy about how that blog is going I may come back to this one, however please go and check out my new one even if it is a work in progress at the moment.

Thanks for reading,

Birmingham | Custard Factory

Recently I visited the Custard Factory in Birmingham. There are lots of individual vintage shops, cafes and galleries as well as some amazing street art and sculptures. I would thoroughly recommend a visit if you find yourself in Birmingham, it is only a 10/15 minute walk from The Bull Ring and has a shop for everyone. There are Homeware shops, Cosmetics, Games and even a 50’s style salon that I am desperate to go to.

  • Fires
  • Pumpkins
  • Oversized Jumpers
  • Fireworks
  • Darker Makeup

Beauty Vloggers

Something that has entered my life over the last 6 months is the open world of Youtube & Youtubers. In this post I will be talking about the concept of a beauty vlogger!

Fleur DeForce

Fleur DeForce was the first youtuber I ever subscribed to! She is a british blogger & vlogger with over 1 million subscribers. She reviews many makeup brands – highstreet as well as high end meaning that you can see the wide range on offer. She also does monthly favourites and tags with her friends (TalkBeckyTalk). If this isn’t enough Fleur has a vlog channel where she does follow me around videos and a bridal channel with her sister who is a wedding planner. Her wedding to boyfriend Mike was largely documented on all of her channels from buying bridesmaid’s dresses to the big day itself. Fleur recently was Vogue’s “Miss Vogue” and has a successful blog where she posts a varied amount of content. It is definitely fair to say that she is very committed to pleasing her subscribers and her posts are always high quality.

Ingrid Nilsen is an American beauty vlogger with nearly 2.5 million subscribers. With her sweet and honest personality it isn’t hard to see how she is loved by so many people. Like Fleur she also does monthly favourites and tags however she does frequent get ready with me videos and shows some of her quick, easy recipes that are always delicious! Ingrid is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and always puts a smile on whoever is watching’s face :)

Zoella
Zoe Sugg is a British Youtuber with over 4 million subscribers. Her great personality really shows in her videos and collaborations with various other Youtubers. Some including Bestfriend Louise (sprinkleofglitter,) Boyfriend Alfie Deyes (pointlessblog,) & Brother Joe Sugg (thatcherjoe.) As well as collabs Zoe posts hauls, hair tutorials and tag videos which all are very enjoyable to watch and edited very well. As well as her fun videos and vlogs Zoe also talks about serious issues such as anxiety, breakups & bullying. Recently with Louise she created chummy chatter where they discussed all of those problems and other life questions.
