Claudia’s Birthday!!! // Vlogmas Day 3 (ish) [CC]


[Dog barking] Something’s happening. Oh, the suspense. You never know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. But generally it means there’s been a delivery. [Jessica] Hi! [Jessica] Happy birthday! [Claudia] Yeah, they’re so nice! [Claudia] Thank you, baby. [Jessica] That’s alright, my darling. [Claudia] Oh, they’re beautiful. [Jessica] A dozen red roses for my love. I knew it was gonna be a good delivery. I just realised that this is probably the most unflattering angle that I could film myself at. [Jessica] Hold it above your head! Apparently I should hold it here. [Jessica laughs] But that’s effort because I have to extend my arms above my head and it’s very early. And it’s my birthday I should be lying in bed… I am lying in bed… I should be… Anyway. [Intro music plays] Good morning! Well it’s not really morning anymore. It’s kind of morning. It’s morning, it’s definitely morning. So today is the big day! My wife is officially 30 years old. Yay! Mummy’s 30! So excited Later on I have arranged a little surprise for her. Which she’s either gonna love or- Tilly… Don’t eat Tilly’s attempting to eat my straws, she always does this And then later on we have a surprise where I’ve arranged to get our hair and makeup done. Which she’s either going to really like or really dislike. I guess everyone’s on a scale right? Of femininity to masculinity Although I don’t know if masculinity is even the right term. Ugh! So some days she’s a massive tomboy, she doesn’t want anything to do with girly stuff But she always hates the process She hates having her hair blow dried but she quite likes having a blow dry. I think she’ll very much like the outcome. I don’t know whether she’ll like having her hair and makeup done. I thought whilst we’re here, I’m putting together my little bag for this evening. I thought I would show it to you. This is my little clutch bag, it is adorable, it’s velvet. I’m not sure if you can tell but it’s a sort of silvery grey. It’s beautiful. It’s actually gun metal I would say. Gun metal is the colour of our car I call it dark silver But no, Claudia likes to correct me It’s gun metal. So I’ve had this bag for a number of years. It’s a good tried and tested one. Generally I do prefer a bag with a strap or handle. So you’re not going anywhere But tonight we’re going to a pub…It’s probably a restaurant actually.. with friends We’ve got a little area so I can just put it down and not worry about it. And then afterwards we’re going on to a bar, but there are quite a few of us so I feel quite safe in having a bag that doesn’t have a strap. It will be okay, I will hold on to it or I will put it down on a table surrounded by our friends. And I will show you what’s in my bag for this evening. Number 1: Next thing. Oh this is pretty obvious, again. Tiny little purse with cash in. Cash is important. I don’t like taking my bank card out with me because you could lose your bank card. If you lose some cash it’s sad but it’s not the end of the world. This one again, it’s quite obvious. My pills. I’ve obviously already taken this mornings pills. I’m going to take these before we go out. But you know, they’re there now. And then there are these ones that I’m going to be taking while we’re out. And yeah look, there’s an adorable little sticker there! My little baby cousin stuck that on She’s not even a baby, she’s like 11 That’s really sad. And moving on… More drugs! These are just some paracetamol tablets Absolutely vital I tend to take paracetamol and ibuprofen out with me because they hit different pain Cause it depends on where my pain is coming from Um, I try to take as few painkillers as I can in a day because I already take painkillers as part of my daily medication So the extra painkillers I only take when I really have to. Generally, everyday is incredibly painful But some days I’m more painful and then I just bring it back down to incredibly painful That’s my baseline Oh! This is vital. This is absolutely vital. Squeezy squash! As someone who cannot have alcohol or sugar your range of drinks at a bar are incredibly limited It’s basically just diet coke and water But also like soda water, so I guess it’s three things And it can get a bit dull so to jazz it up I take my squeezy squash with me. It’s brilliant. It’s sugar free, they have it in all different types of flavours, different brands do them, some supermarkets do their own. Personally though, I’m a big fan of the Robinsons apple and blackcurrant I only get squeezy squash when it’s on offer too. I’m not that stuck up Always buy things on offer Gonna move on to some more fun elements here A comb! Why is this fun? It is. Trust me, okay? When your hair starts looking a little bit flat later on in the evening you’ve got the comb here Nice bit of backcombing going on. Or your ends are looking a little raggedy, give them a little brush. Delightful! I hate when someone whips out their phone “No, I’m not ready! I’m not ready!” That’s totally not true. I am not that girl. I will stick my face in any photo regardless! And it has a pointy end which you could use as a weapon. And no ones going to take it away from you at the club door because it’s a comb Next up in the makeup department: This is a white eyeliner. That might seem like a strange thing to take on your evening but I actually think it’s vital because as the evening goes on You’re gonna be getting a little, you’re going to be looking a little tired and red in the eyes So your white liner is gonna really help your eyes pop I like to just apply it a bit It makes you look awake and like you know what’s going on when you don’t cause you have chronic fatigue and you’re actually falling asleep in a corner But in photos it looks like you are 100% part of the party And then we have… Is that upside down? No. Brilliant. The beautiful Maybelline Superstay 24 hour. This is the cherry pie, it’s number 542 in case it has a different name in your country because I know some of the names differ No worries. It’s not going anywhere. It’s not going to fade, it’s not going to give you that weird effect where you only have lipstick left everywhere but your lips. If you keep topping it up with the special little balm it comes with it will stay shiny but if you just put that on once and then blot it a bit and wait it gets quite a nice matte look. So whichever you’re a fan of there, glossy or matte I quite like it to look glossy You can also kiss someone wearing this! You can also kiss someone who is also wearing this and it goes nowhere What else have we got? Oh, hearing aid batteries! Clearly vital, don’t really need to tell you much about them. Just you should always have them. A silk scarf. And also, look how that matches beautifully. So, a silk scarf is a vital vital thing that you should always have I got that from my mother and off my grandmother because you never know when you’re going to need a silk scarf It could get a bit chilly and then you just wrap it around your neck Oh, toasty warm suddenly because the vicious wind can’t get through it. It could be raining and if you saw my scarf video you’ll know what to do, how to protect your vintage hair in the rain Also my grandmother always kept this, my nana She lives in Boston, in America Bah-ston Where they say pa-hk ca-h I’m so sorry that I’m massacring that for you but yes She was fabulous but she kept one of these at all times Even when she was in the middle of the second world war, she was a nurse She always kept a silk scarf handy because you never know when someone might come to tea And you might need to use it as a tablecloth To give some instant refinement to your tent Yeah, if you’re wondering, this; It’s genetic. My I.D. obviously so I can get into places That’s my face I think I was 16 And dragged into a photobooth by my mother At least it’s a good I.D. that I don’t worry that I’m going to lose Because it’s so incredibly freaking out of date Other things..Uh, oh this! I know it says disabled person railcard But it also has my disabled bus pass in And that’s vital because you know, I need to get home. And it’s very important for a disabled persons safety That they can immediately get home Not only because we are more vulnerable And more at risk of being victims of crime but also But also because we have medical conditions that can change at any moment And you may need to get home to get a certain medication You may need to get home because you’re about to crash and pass out Definitely need to go home then Or you know, you’ve had enough If you’re over stimulated For later on in the evening when you want to put your hair up And dance the night away without worrying about your hair looking pretty or anything You never know when you’ll need some hair pins Not only for your own head but for someone elses head To hold clothes together, done that before One final thing This is my little handy box That matches this, look at that So this little lipstick case has a very handy mirror in it, yeah I do not keep lipstick in it however I keep eyelash glue and tweezers Tweezers because they double up Not only can you put your eyelashes back on You never know when you might need tweezers Something might get stuck in someone and you’ll need to pull it out I once went to a house party in Bristol that got gatecrashed quite badly and someone broke a glass window Into this girls face so She had glass in her face and her hands because she put her hands up to protect herself And everyone else was just disgustingly drunk Everyone was off their face So obviously I was the only person who could provide medical support Like “well, I have tweezers” So I pulled bits of glass out of her face with my tweezers And now I always carry them So there we go, that’s what’s in my bag on a night out Oh yeah, what do you keep in yours? What have I missed? Have I missed anything? Lets go! Gotta put clothes on actually, can’t just gonna go out for a WLK in my delightful nightwear So we finished, we tiedied the house, we decorated the house Look it’s a Christmas tree And who is this behind me? Hello, this is Shanise and she’s doing my hair And it’s very exciting, I never get anyone else to do my hair So this is quite a little treat Supposed to be a treat for Claud but I’m going first And Claud, have you decided what you’re going for? [Claudia] Woops! What is she doing? Where are you? [Jessica] What happened? [Claudia] Oh I’m just trying to tidy [Claudia] I am going for a combination of rockstar, sort of loose, tussly look and the signature with more defined curls. [Jessica] How are you going for combination? [Claudia] I don’t know, I’m gonna do half and half like this side is my wild side, this side is my proper side. My dad can sit on this side tonight Good morning [Claudia] Hello It’s not really morning though is it? It’s 1:30 in the afternoon I might be wearing makeup but I’m actually just gonna lie here all day Is my plan I’m gonna edit the video from yesterday That is today’s video Get my energy back Dose It was a really really fun last night but I am exhausted now So everyones gone out and I’m wearing clothes That’s very impressive.
