What I’m Taking To IMATS


This has been a long awaited blog post (for me) so I’m extra excited to finally be writing it.. but taking pictures was the fun part. I took the afternoon off work on Friday (yesterday, or now as I write this) to film a couple of videos for you guys and one of them was ‘What I’m Taking To IMATS’ – yay! I’ve put a lot of thought into what I’m packing (and wearing) for the weekend as I’m anticipating having to carry my bag with me everywhere without offloading my stuff so packing light was essential. I’m wearing a jersey tshirt style dress and that’s ALL I’m taking.. I’ve packed some tights in case it turns cold but I know how hot it can get on the tube when it’s so humid and the last thing I want it to be all sweaty when I finally arrive so I’m risking it (and fake tanning in preparation) and not taking a change of clothes.. hopefully I don’t spill anything. I’m wearing black ballet flats which will hopefully see me fro day to night and I have a cool spiky necklace with me which I could wear all weekend or reserve to funky up my very plain dress for the evening.. who knows? I like to live on the edge 😉


So let’s get in to the makeup, the fun stuff, right? Most of what I’ve brought with me is compact and I decanted my foundation in to a teeny sample pit so I’ve managed to fit everything from toothbrush, to makeup brush to body lotion (hair brush would have worked better there, huh?) in this little bag. Talking of hair brushes I don’t think I’m taking one, still not totally sure how I will wear my hair but it will either start down and work it’s way up into a bun when I get hot or I’ll just wear a bun all weekend – likely the latter as it’s just easier.



  • Selection of brushed from Real Techniques and one mini from Sigma
  • MUA Undress Your Skin foundation (decanted in to a little pot)
  • elf Maximum Coverage Concealer*
  • Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder
  • Fashionista Bronzer in LA and Blush in New York
  • Maybelline Master Shape Brow Definer
  • Benefit Eyeshadow in Bossy
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner
  • Seventeen Doll’d Up Mascara*
  • Vera Wang Lovestruck Perfume

IMG_5789In my Primark organiser (provided by the lovely Ellie) I have…

  • My Biba Purse – Peach version is £39.50 in the sale right now
  • iPhone with case from StickerApp* for £19.99
  • iPad Mini – £269 (I buy all of my electricals from Very.co.uk for their BNPL scheme)
  • Lumix DMC-FS45 – £89.00 (my vlogging camera – love it!)
  • Anker Portable Charger – £26.99 (best thing I’ve ever bought – gives 4 full charges of my phone and will fit any usb charger)
  • Pyjamas – boxers and a random vest top – no link for that I’m afraid
  • Pair of ‘just in case’ black tights – again, no link


Lastly I have my touch ups which I will be keeping in the little zip pocket of my bag, easy to grab when necessary. I will likely keep some cash in this little purse but it actually houses my various medicines and plasters I like to keep on hand just in case.

  • Maybelline Fit Me Powder – £5.99 (the S&G blotting powder is a bit heavy for touch ups, this is better)
  • elf Stipple Brush* – £3.75 (handy little brush for powdering my tzone)
  • Kiko Apple Blossoms Lipstick – £4.90
  • Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie* – £7.99
  • Elizabeth Arden 8hr Lip Balm – £13.95 (this packaging was ltd edition)
  • Purse was from Topshop ages ago so no longer available unfortunately

So that’s everything, may seem like a lot but I swear.. I’m packing light! Look out for a big haul to come
