Helping you insert some Christmas spirit into your wardrobe is the Vlogger Christmas Edit at Manchester Arndale’s Exchange Court. This weekend Manchester Arndale plays host to eight of your favourite vloggers in a live scoop on the latest fashion, beauty and lifestyles trends.
The two-day event features Manchester-based Jess Ratchford (JDR MakeUp) and Lily Kitten. The social media stars were highlighting their top beauty and gadget gifts guaranteed to excite this festive season. Tiny Twisst’s wish list included ten versatile dresses that will carry you through the party season. Meanwhile, fashion and lifestyle blogger, Boy in Breton presented classic fashion favourites for men.
The highlight of the day would have to be Chioma Jennifer Jenkins, known as Jennie Jenkins on her YouTube channel BeautyByJJ. The 27-year-old Nigerian fashionista has been boosting the confidence of her darker skin toned viewers and inspiring them for over five years. Despite having a degree in Psychology, the YouTuber has steadily built up a fashionable following of over five-hundred thousand subscribers in the saturated subject of beauty.
Jenkins counted down her top ten show-stopping heels for the season, including three sparkling stilettos from Dune, Kurt Geiger and Aldo. When putting the finishing flourishes on her outfit, Jenkins admitted that her last purchase were the red tasselled heels she featured from River Island (£65.00). Jenkins also flaunted a smokey eye which would add a modern polish to any outfit and feature heavily on her make-up channel tutorials.
Manchester Arndale’s The Vlogger Christmas Edit will continue on Sunday the 22nd. If you can’t make it be sure to catch the videos on the Manchester Arndale website or check out the Vlogger’s personal channels.
