sick day get ready with me

uk fashion blogger


Today I made this sick day get ready with me video for my Youtube Channel. I know, I know I said I'd lay off doing stuff until I'm better but my cold and flu has subsided and I still have no voice (see a video of it here). I couldn't speak in the video and despite it being less than three minutes long it actually took me a whole day to film and edit. It really isn't as quick and as easy as people seem to think. Although I could be doing it wrong!

I personally don't subscribe to the whole "if you're ill you have to look a mess", why is that a rule? I feel better when I look better. Plus I've naughtily still been getting on with my life despite being sick, I used Five products on my face in a look that took less than 3 minutes to do and I went from drab, blanket wrapped mess to something a little more presentable and feel good. I think flawless skin and red lips is the best way to go when you want to create a fool proof sick day look!My outfit is my go-to sick/sunday outfit, basically leggings paired with a big over sized jumper. It's super simple but still looks stylish and effortless.

I hope you like it! Please subscribe to my channel if you haven't already and click thumbs up if you enjoyed it! All the details from the video are in the description box including links so remember to check on Youtube for all the details!

  1. I've caught a bug today from my brother, my throat feels like it's full of blades! I can imagine editing can be very frustrating, the end result looks great though so it was a days work worthwhile! Hope you're feeling better soon

  3. I always find it so refreshing to do my make up and get ready on a sick day because even if you feel like poo, the little touches and time you take on yourself make me feel loads better. Hope you're feeling better soon

  4. I always feel so much worse when I stay in bed when I'm ill. Have to get up and do something productive, or at least get out of my pjs. Get well soon! Liz x

  9. There's nothing better when your ill to get up, have a shower, get dressed and chill in comfy clothes. Oh and some good soup to keep going :D
