Buffy The Vampire Slayer Makeup, Costume & Accessories for Halloween!

Sunday, 19 October 2014

Hey everyone!

Autumn is my favourite time of year - and it's not only because Summer is officially over (I'm not a fan of the heat) but it means Halloween, Bonfire Night and Diwali are all creeping up on us. Halloween is arguably my favourite 'holiday' as I love dressing up and scaring people for the hell of it. Most importantly, it gives me an excuse to dress up as my favourite characters. This year, I have decided to dress up as my role model and favourite TV show character EVER: Buffy Summers. 

I probably look more like Faith here!

If you have not watched Buffy The Vampire Slayer before, you are seriously missing out. It's honestly the most diverse show ever. Most episodes blend different genres, including horror, martial arts, romance, melodrama, science fiction, comedy, and even musical comedy in one certain episode (and the complete opposite in another).

I created this makeup and outfit look based on this picture of Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers. In this promo pic for season 4 she wears a Black high neck vest top with a pair of dark red faux leather trousers. Her makeup is pretty simple with a goldy champagne colour on her eyelids and a brown liner and mascara with minimal face makeup. I have left all links to the outfit I'm wearing in the description box of my YouTube video. If you want to know where to get the jewellery from, I've done a whole post on Buffy jewellery which you can check out by clicking here.

Your support on my channel has been overwhelming and I am so grateful to each and every one of you who has subscribed, commented or thumbed up any of my videos. I will probably do more blog posts in the months leading up to Christmas as I have a Christmas temp job starting soon so I won't be able to post videos on YouTube as often for a while (I think, we'll see!)

Thanks for reading and I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.

Bloggers Tea Party at Drink, Shop & Do

Hey everyone,

As many of you will know from my Instagram pics and tweets on Twitter, I attended the Bloggers Tea Party last Sunday hosted by talented bloggers Olivia and Nadja at a little quaint cafe called 'Drink, Shop & Do' in Kings Cross.

The cafe was wonderfully different to the usual coffee & cake shop. The layout itself was unique and the arrangement of cups they had on display were rather mesmerizing. 

Our meetup was situated at the back of the cafe where we had our own VIP area. The afternoon involved many Twitter competitions as well as a beauty bar where we got to pick up little beauty treats. The tea and cake were definitely two of the many highlights of the afternoon!

Olivia & Nadja did an outstanding job hosting and organising the blogger meetup and managed to get a number of fantastic brands on board such as Sleek Makeup, Makeup Revolution, Giovanni, Palmers, Balance Me, So? and many more. 

The goody bag was beyond amazing and I have already used and featured a lot of the products on my YouTube channel if any of you guys are interested to see how I like them. Also, I will be reviewing some of the beauty products on my blog. 

All in all the Bloggers Tea Party turned out to be a massive success and it was a great way to meet new people and mingle with fellow bloggers. Again, thank you to Olivia and Nadja for pulling off such an amazing event! I honestly can't wait for the next one!
