The Best Make Up Bags EVER!

Like most girls I love make-up, I love experimenting and trying new products. More than just loving make up though, I love make-up brushes. I’m constantly trying to find the best ones, I swear If you saw my whole make up collection you would think I was a make up artist because of the size of my collection. I am always on the hunt for the best make up bags.

V513475_OF_DETFor years I used the Victoria Secret Travel Case cosmetic bags, which open up in to two pockets allowing you to separate your brushes and make up. I loved that they came in a variety of vibrant patterns and colours like leopard print, bright pink and black glitter. However the downside to these bags was they aren’t the cheapest at just under £40 and after having 3 over the years, every zip has broken which is just annoying. There are now cheaper versions of these on the market but maybe because I have too much make up I always found I’d have to leave stuff out as it nearly bursting at the seams.

Then I came across My Kit Co. I had a few friends recommend them but to be honest I just thought it was an instagram hype, but I decided to take a look at the website.

The first thing I came across was the ‘My Brush Buddy’ now as a lover of brushes this was something I just couldn’t resist. With its four separate compartments its perfect to keep your brushes organised and you can arrange them by base, eyes, pencils even. I even added my brush cleaner to it. Its great because you aren’t mixing it with your make up which means they keep cleaner and it makes it so much easier to just pick them out.

”My Neat & Tidy” Organiser | 3 of 4 shown here!

I then purchased the ‘Neat & Tidy’ organiser which at the price of just £26 comes with four separate bags. It means you can organise your make up from eye shadow palettes to your foundations and bronzers. I’m sure every girl wastes so much time when they are doing there make up just looking for their blusher. Well this helps saves time as its not all shoved in to one bag.

I then finished off my collection with the ‘My Travel Buddy.’ I’m not going to lie I feel this product is aimed more for make-up artists but I found it was great for organising my hair products, hair accessories and with the two internal meshed zipped pockets it allows me to organise my hair grips and bobbles. As I am performer I often have to carry a lot of makeup and products around and this also makes it easier.

PVC Pouch Large & Small

Im not sure if this still applies but at the time of buying it also came with a free PVC pouch which you could choose from small or large. I have used these to organise my nail polishes.

The two best things about My Kit Co. is the affordability, such a great price for quality items and the variety of products you can choose from. Your make up kit will never be unorganised again. This is not an AD just a review from a very satisfied customer. If you don’t believe me check out their website and be amazed for yourself.

January Diaries – My 2017 Faves

How fast did 2017 go? I only hope this year slows down just a little because I’m getting older and I am NOT a fan of it. My 2018 promise was to dedicate more time to my blog however I spent the whole of January in LA and just didn’t have time, so starting now this is my priority.

But first here are some of my 2017 highlights..

.Favourite Holiday.

Well Im cheating slightly as my favourite holiday was to Croatia! Except it wasn’t actually a holiday it was work, but if being surrounded by the most amazing people on the beautiful island of Vis is work then sign me up any day!

.Favourite Job.

This year I was lucky enough to work on 3 films. Murder on the Orient Express which is out already and 2 that will be out in the next two years. I guess nothing can really compete with that. Here is some pics of my time on set for MOTOE!

.Favourite Gift.

Easy! For christmas I received a special edition book ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ which included beautiful photographs from the set. Although I’m not in any of the photos it’s such a lovely keepsake and reminder of the wonderful time I had.

.Favourite Song.

‘The Greatest Show’ from The Greatest Showman soundtrack! Actually the whole album is just incredible.

.Favourite Outfit.

Dress: Self Portrait          Shoes: Topshop          Bag: ASOS

.Favourite TV Show.

Well its the last time I can say this so it has to be Pretty Little Liars. I wasn’t blown away by the ending but I have loved it since the beginning and I will miss watching it every week. Im also so glad Spoiler and Spoiler ended up together.

.Favourite Memory.

This has to be being on set, dancing on a boat in the middle of the sea with a helicopter flying over us. This might sound strange but it was honestly the most fun Ive had in years. (Thats probably quite sad). Check it out in the trailer below, see if you can spot me (Heres a hint 2:20)

.Favourite Job.img_4589

OMG its so hard to choose one..can I have two? Oh yea I make the rules

2. Being back on a West End Stage in ‘The Entertainer’ stepping out of my comfort zone a little and performing in a play was great. The People I got to work alongside though is definitely the reason its in my Top 12.

.Favourite Quote.

”Forever is a long, long time and time has a way of changing things” – Walt Disney

Who Am I?


I’m Yasmin or Yaz to my friends.

A Little bit about me then, I’m a professional dancer/performer by day (and night tbf) and a shopaholic since birth. I like Clothes (Obviously), All things Harry Potter, SHOES, films and anything ROSE GOLD!

My Job has allowed me to work with some amazing artists such as Little Mix,  Rita Ora to name a few and on your Fave Tv Shows The X factor,  The Voice, Saturday Night Take Away. My most recent experiences have been on the stage in Londons West End! And my dreams were fulfilled when I got to ‘go to the ball’ and be a part of Disney’s Cinderella (Try and Spot Me). But enough about dance back to fashion.

I have a little Instagram page I recently started showing off all my daily outfits and where you can purchase them. Make sure you give it a follow and hopefully you will find some inspiration for your wardrobe.


 I also started up a YouTube channel involving all things fashion, as I felt so many channels were dedicated to beauty. Sometimes make-up gets mentioned because I’m a  girly girl who likes to get dressed up but I have really had fun coming up with video ideas that are based solely on clothes and fashion and obviously I LOVE a Good HAUL!

One of my first videos I did was ‘The Bin Bag Challenge.’ Making a dress out of bin bags not as easy as it may seem.
SPOILER ALERT: I even wore it to Westfield Shopping Centre!!

I’m literally sat at work right now and just decided to write a blog. It seemed the like the next step. So I look forward to coming up with some creative ideas for all you wonderful people reading this. I will be giving you some great things new in the world of fashion and might fill you in on some of the exciting dance jobs I’m on.

But for now Hope you had a lovely Christmas and here is some of my FAVE looks of 2016!
