Major Haulage!

My MAC haul should be arriving today! Graphic Garden, Love That Look, Baby Bloom and Euristocrats 2! V excited! Yay!

I also have hauls from The Body Shop, Soap and Glory and a collective haul to record but don't want to inundate you with haul vids, so I might not bother with those.

I might just post pics/swatches here, haven't decided yet, my priority at the moment are tutorials as I haven't done one for a little while.

My new camera is fantastic and I really wanted to record some vids last night but in the end it just got too late and I was so tired. I hope to be able to do them tonight!

New Video Set-Up

I'm really not happy with where I have been sitting to film my videos, the lighting is terrible! Plus it's my dining table downstairs so every time I want to do a tutorial or whatever, I have to move everything down here.

Ideally I want to be able to sit at my dressing table (vanity) and have everything to hand, this will really encourage me to record a lot more make-up tutorials...yay!

However the lighting in my bedroom is even worse than downstairs, so I challenged my hubby to sort it all out for me (love you baby!). He has ordered me a new camera, tripod and a daylight lamp and he's going to set it all up on my dressing table for me. At the moment I am using the family camera so I can't keep it set up as we use it to take photos/film of our daughter etc.

It all arrives on Tuesday so I'm sooooo excited! I'm finally going to be able to just switch on the lamp, camera and go! I won't have to set everything up each time I want to record a vid.

I had to share as I'm so pleased, plus the camera is HD which means better quality vids for all my lovely subscribers!

Congratulations to my winners!

Yay! Congrats to my lovely winners! Sorry that not everyone could win a prize but please stay subscribed as I have a couple more contests coming up!

The first one is a blog contest, all you have to do to enter is to be a follower of my blog, and leave a comment on one of my blog entries. It doesn't matter what you put (keep it nice though lol!), you don't have to put anything about the contest, just any comment.

At the end of August (on first September) I will collect all the names of everyone who has commented on any post on my blog to date and will pick winners at random. Not sure how many winners yet, it depends on how many prizes I can get together.

I plan on putting some goodie bags together with lovely make-up and beauty products in, and once they are ready I will post a video showing you what the prizes are.

So please subscribe to my blog and post at least one comment (more if you like) in order to be entered!

Also, once I hit 1000 subscribers on my channel I'm going to do another contest, another big contest which I hope will be a lot of fun! So keep your eyes open for that, and please spread the word about my channel so that I can reach my target...thank you all.

I really do appreciate every single one of you, and I promise to keep this blog updated more regularly and I also have lots of tutorials coming up!
