Favourite’s!

Hey guys! I feel like it’s been ages since I did a beauty related post, I guess this is a monthly favourites but I don’t buy enough products to do monthly favourites…so favourites of the last 3 months? So enough rambling lets get started.

image

This perfume is from atleast two months ago. I bought it in lidl and it’s the very same as coco channel. I bought three bottles and the candle. Come on for €3.99 how could I say no? It lasts just as long as any perfume. Lidl has done it again haha

image

These are the nail polishes I’ve been using the most the last two months. There names are 172 splash! 152 give me nude, baby! 138 L.O.L!

image

image

This is the most genius thing ever! I got it in penny’s. You just pop your finger in twist it and the nail varnish is gone. No cotton pads, no strong smell of nail varnish remover…am I the only one amazed by this? I thought it would only last a week and it would dry up but I’ve had it a good month now. Amazing! 

image

image

This is just my favourite lip combination at the minute. Its Mac hue and artdeco 23. I’ve had them both for a while but they are so much nicer together. The artdeco shade is a 90s matt nude and the Mac just adds a nicer texture and slight gloss.

image

My face was struggling last week, I had dry patches everywhere and It was just generally gross so I bought this face mask in aldi…big spender I know :/ but I honestly feel like it helped.

image

This has featured on here before but I only realised how much I liked it until it ran out. Its really lovely and suits my skin perfectly (combination to dry) and lasts ages to.

image

This is a random one but has anybody else been watching Bear Grylls the island? Its so so good if you’re not watching then catch up online!

image

And another random. These crisps are delicious you need them in your belly now.

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

Get ready with me!

Hey guys! So Sunday just gone was a bank holiday I said I’d take a few snaps as I was getting ready and make a post of it! I was very stuck for time I was home from work at half six and had to be ready for 8.

image

So on Friday night I epilated my legs…nice bit of torture on a Friday night. On Saturday I exfoliated, I exfoliate every second or third day but I just did a deeper exfoliation I then moisturised waited for that to dry and finally I tanned…sounds like alot of work when you write it down. On Sunday morning I showered and put another coat of tan on my legs. I didn’t really need a second coat but I wanted it.

Epilater: Braun silk epil 3
Tan: Garnier no streaks bronzer
Exfoliator: Soap and glory sugar crush
Moisturiser: Soap and glory sugar crush

I finally got home from work on Sunday…longest day ever.

image

I ate a super healthy meal…oops! And by ate I mean devoured!

image

I just went for a basic brown smokey eye.

image

The camera didn’t pick it up to well…I also ended up changing my lipstick to my old favourite “girl about town” by Mac.

What’s in my bag!

Hey guys! Today I said I’d do the what’s in my bag tag. I don’t even think this tag is “cool” in the blogging land anymore but I still find them interesting and I love when people are actually honest and their bag has loads of crap in it.

image

I got my bag in a shutterbug kilo sale. Its abit battered but it was 5 euro so I can’t complain.

image

My purse is from river island it was a gift from my lovely friend for my 18th birthday.

image

My nikon camera.

image

I didn’t think I had this many lipsticks in my bag. I think most of these featured in my “what my face is worth” tag.

image

The black earphones don’t work so of course I still have them in my bag! Work locker key and house key nothing exciting there.

image

I was out last Saturday and the night club I was in had a photo booth…how cool! So I just left that in my bag. My little travel perfume is Dolca and Gabbana theΒ one, I love it again it was a gift from my lovely brother and his wife. I carry a toothbrush everywhere I just hate being without one. Like ya know when you eat something sugary and your teeth feel like shit aftwards…ugh I hate it!

image

Mini rubex cube and foot bottle opener…what every girl needs. And a sanitary towel…what girls actually need!

image

Out of date passport (90 euro to renew it? It can wait) and a
voucher for a shopping centre in kilkenny.

image

The ugliest picture in the world of me and my boyfriend. I don’t know why it’s in my bag.

image

And rubbish.
