University Room Tour

Hey guys, hope that you're all well. I've uploaded a room tour, which is outdated despite only filming it a couple of weeks back. I have a serious addition to fairy lights. Enjoy!

Gold and Bold Makeup Tutorial

After my lovely Megan had a moan at me that I hadn't done a makeup post in a while, I thought I'd do one better and film a tutorial for her. The look I've gone for is soft and glowy gold eyes, with a bold berry toned lip. Have a look at the shots and check out the tutorial below.
Much love, Sophie x

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show '15

I've decided that attending Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has become one of my life goals. I love the brand (literally all the underwear in my collection is by VS) and I love the huge spectacle of the shows. I was super excited when I learned that Gigi and Kendall were walking this year alongside my favourites, which almost made up for the lack of Karlie and Doutzen. I can't wait until it airs next month!
This year there were over a hundred looks featured, so I've narrowed down my favourites to share with you today. Let me know which looks you love best in the comments down below!

The BEST Christmas Adverts

On Friday morning the new John Lewis Christmas advert was launched, and as per usual, we all lost our minds. For those of you not in the UK, John Lewis is one of our major department stores and these adverts have become something of a big deal. Every year these adverts mark what a lot of people think of as the official start of the Christmas season. And every year they seem to get bigger and better, more anticipated, and almost more competitive, as to who will have the best advert. I am one of those people who started screeching about Christmas in September, but for those of you who have just joined the party (welcome, btw), or joined the party Tuesday with Starbucks' Red Cup launch, I've put together a few of my favourite ads from recent years for your viewing pleasure. 
I will just state that these aren't the best things to watch if you're feeling a wee bit weepy. I swear these marketers are determined to make us all cry and I cried putting this together, despite seeing them many times before.
Enjoy your festive fix,

Christmas Lush Haul!

Well hello there! Hope you're all well. I have to admit I'm feeling grossly overwhelmed, with mounting deadlines and NaNoWriMo. However, as I've been through all this before, I've planned ahead. I filmed this haul before I went home last weekend, so you still have your weekly upload!
I've used the star and the pumpkin, lit some candles and had the most chilled bath ever!
I hope you enjoy this haul, and the ridiculous facial expressions I make.

Best of Vlogtober

Hello November! I've only had one day without vlogging so far and it still feels weird. I keep reaching for my camera whenever something happens, and going to bed last night without wishing you goodnight felt plainly wrong. But whilst I'm missing sharing my life with you guys, I do feel a little less stressed now I don't have to edit & upload everyday! I've decided to make a masterpost from vlogtober, as I know its hard to keep up all the daily vlogging going on in October.
31 vlogs are, obviously loads, so I've cherry picked my five favourites to let you see the best of what I got up to, as well as the important, difficult moments I faced.
General Joy
What I've loved most about Vlogtober is being able to see all the amazing times I've had, and look back at all the smiles. From the endless starbucks trips and giggles with the girls, I've had many moments of joy this month.
Mental Health
But its not all been rosy. Vlogging every day means you see the rubbish days which normally get hidden. And, there have been a lot of moments of suffering this month. Upon reflection, my deterioration is obvious, and you can tell a breakdown was going to happen. Since then I've still been low, but I'm proud of the battle I've been fighting against my depression and anxiety. Sharing this with you was hard, but your support has been overwhelmingly kind and I cannot thank you enough.
Which vlogs were your favourite this month? Let me know in the comments so I know what you guys like seeing! I won't be vlogging much this month, but I'll be everyday in December for Vlogmas! Until then vloggers x
