okay okay do any of you rememer be writing about been accepted to a certain college back in december and how I was incredably excited about the entire prospect etc. How this college was the best in ireland for journalism....WELL! I applied for there scholarship, not having a single inch of believe in myself but without this scholarship I could not afford the 18thousand euro fees for the 3year course, plus commute money , it just was'nt feasable...

My birthday was on tuesday and was a lovely day I saw my best friend looking incredable as she went to her debs. Seriously I actually shed a tear because she looked so amazing! Keara Dont ever get married it could kill me haha....
On the Wednesday I was sitting on the Bus heading into town, it was cold and extremely wet out, was'nt feeling the greatest, was tired etc... Anyhow as the bus took of from my stop I day dreamed out the window when I heard
'' boom boom pow'' singing to me, i strugged to find my phone, and once I had reached it I noticed a dublin number was calling me, a number I did'nt recongnise..I've a strange thing about answering unknown numbers or numbers I don't recognise, but for some reason I decided I needed to answer this call.

''Hello there Becky?''
''Hi there its Niamh calling here from independent colleges''

At this point I could feel my heart race to a beat I had never experienced before, not even on a saturday night.

Niamhs voice was calm, and for some reason I felt this was it, dreams shattered you have'nt got it. I started to instintly prepare what would be appropriate to say once she had told me that I had'nt been choosen for there scholarship (they give one out a year).

Our conversation continued and she begain to tell me about how they had,had there scholarship meeting that morning etc..
ANYWAY I suppose at this point I shoulf hurry this woffle up slighty..........

''Becky I delighted to inform you that you have been selected to offer the scholarship to this year''


''haha yes becky, unfortunantly you did'nt actually make one of our requirements entirely to do out higher bachelors degree in journalism, but you where incredably close, And for this reason we would love to offer you the scholarship to cover this course''

'OMG OMG OMG OMG'' my mind goes slighty blank at this point, and I do remember alot of people looking at me very strangely.

To sum this shocking news up for you, I have been offered a 22,000 euro scholarship to Independent college, that covers me for my entire 3year degree!!!

its my birthday:)

Hey guys its my birthday today YAY, I'm 19! And as my brother so kindly put it in my card, your almost 20 which means your almost half way to 40..Thanks Dave ... haha

This year is the start of some much after starting school on the day of my fifth birthday this year is the first year I wont be in school for my birthday, obviously saturdays and sundays not counted but I've always started school on the 1st of september. Strange knowing that, that prospect is now a distint memory. I start college on the 14th, the taught of this excites me, makes me extremely nervous and also baffles me. I have no idea what to expect from college life, what bag is approaprate, what clothes wont be frowned upon, if I wear alot of make-up will i look as though I'm trying to hard, etc. These little things that I really really don't know what to expect regarding.

One of the gorgeous bloggers i follow starts her college adventure today. The same girl I have blogged about in the past. During the leaving cert talking to one any of my friends about the stresses and straines of the leaving cert was a simple NO NO, Aoife on the other hand was the one girl I reached to talk to when things got to much, when a test was strangly, strange and when the hard hit reality that 'this was it' started to kick in.

During the exams themselves we would comment to eachother on how that day went, cheer eachother up if things where dismil and congratuate when we felt confident.
Today she betweens college life, and Im anxiously awaiting for today to be over so she can like during the leaving cert, relax my nervous.. GOOD LUCK AOIFE!!! And as we keep telling eachother, WE'VE DONE IT!!

So as I lie in bed at five to eight, my mother, brother and sister still singing 'happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you happy birthday dear becky happy birthday to you' Im excited, not alone is it my birthday but its the begining of year where I start the 'find yourself journey' and spark the college life I've been excited and nervous about for the past 15years!

PS:my best friends debs is today, ie Keara from a pervous post,(the girl whose make-up I did).She is going to look increbably stunning and I cannot wait to see her!!Love you long time Solider (private joke) ...

Hello I'm back

Well well well, How are we all doing?

Firstly I need to apologise for not blogging in what seems like FOREVER. This summer has been one, let's just say it's been eventful to say the least. Anyway this recession has prevented me from having very little retail experiences and therefore I haven't had the chance to haul or have new products to review. I started working full time but that's now finished (was costing me more to work then I was getting paid for), I couldn't go to my debs i.e. Prom as it was financially impossible, Had some friends and family drama, and I start college on the 14th so basically its been just ONE OF THOSE summer's.

It's my birthday on Tuesday YAY, I'm turning 19 and even though I don't think I will be receiving any gifts (again recession) HOPEFULLY I will have the chance to do a little bit of shopping....

I have a few bits I will revies for you beauties today, off to find my phone conecter (oh yes my camera is broken to) so I can upload some images as this blog is looking as old as my granny's attic........

Please comment below and fill me in on your news and updates :)

Hey guys,

Sorry its been so long since my last post, had alot going on in my personal life. Anyway as everyone knows where in a recession:(.Thats tainted word has been broadcasted by every means for a number of media broadcasters.

This recession is proving more difficult then I could ever imagin unfortuantly..

I have definantly tighted my belt over the past few months and had my own project 10 pan, but unfortunantly mine was'nt by choice..

Anyway this week, EVERYTHING decide to run out, foundation, powder, facial scrub, make up whips, lipstick, lip gloss, vaseline, favorite bronzer, mascara! haha

So now i need to rob a bank in order to fund everything again....Okay maybe I wont robe a bank but I certainly need to look at other means..

So this is where my beautiful followers come in, I need you to suggest more pocket friends options to replace my make up...

In Ireland we have a debs(prom) in you final year after the exams, mine is the 5th of august, the fancy expensive dress,the limo,hair,nails,tan,date everything is expected and yesturday i had to canel going so naturally Im feeling very down about missing such a exciting night in a teenage girls calender...

Hey guys,
So today I'm doing another review, this time on a eyebrow product
(I broke my camera so currently cant get pictures to my blog :( so having to use pictures from other sources, therefore the picture I am using here is'nt the exact one I have but very similar, sorry:( )

Basically this kit is for your eyebrows but can also be used as a liner ,which is VERY handy..For my eyebrows l don't really like using a pencil, personally they make my eyebrows look as though they have been drawn on, which l dont like and almost makes the hairs clump together. I will admit I havent spent much money on a eye brow pencil which is prob the cause of this problem.
This little kit is powder but it does'nt feel as though its ''powdery''. Its nothing like a eyeshadow and is applyed very very easy.
I really like this product. its compact, stays in place all day,has two great colours which you can mix together or use seperatly in order to suit your eyebrow shade. The one in the picture above also comes in different shade

''Shape and groom eyebrows, and colour them too. Each Kit comes with two shades of colour and a compact brush. With Community Trade marula oil.''

I have had this product for 3 years and is still almost new looking!

I also own the above mini brush set by the bodyshop and use the angled brush with the eyebrow set..
Have you ever tried this? Do you recommend anything different??

Monday, July 6, 2009


So this week has been a bit of a emotional rollarcoaster for me. We all have those weeks when you wont to crawl under the duvet and not come out . Well its been one of those weeks, not been myself at all and personally I HATE IT!!

Anyway while tweeting away today I say the very gorgeous Katrin (4faintsunrise) had made a new video, I was super excited because I love her videos and to my absolute shock the video had a little something extra....

SERIOUSLY this meant sooooooo much to me !! Katrin your sooooo stunning inside and out and I LOVE your videos, you blog, your tweets EVERYTHING, your incredable to watch and talk to !!!!

everyone please check her out

I don't know how else to thank you hunni!

Can I start this post by saying
I <3>
Sorry Im slightly excited, but I really do love this foundation, Iv tried soooo many different foundations and this is by far my favorite (I always love the estee Lauder Double wear).
This is affordable and brilliant!!!
It lasts, doesnt transfer and is lightweight. When I wear this I dont feel as though I'm wearing a foundation at all which is brilliant especially during the summer months.It also doesnt break you out BRILLIANT!! Im currently using the normal to dry skin one but think I need to change to the combination to oily one as my skin has changed during the summer months.
PS: I Have been using this product for about 6 weeks and like to do this with all my foundations before reviewing them incase of breakouts etc


''why we love it:Highlight and contour cheekbones in one sexy sweep with this box of satiny pink and bronze powders. They're a perfect 10!

What else you need to know:Complete with soft, natural-bristle cheek brush. Easy step-by-step contouring lesson included.
Product details
10g Net Wt / 0.35 oz
winner of:
2008 Working Mother Beauty Awards "Best bronzer/highlighter" ''

When you visit the Benefit website this is what you can read about the benefit 10 product, Heres what I think.

I first got this product during christmas of 2007 from 3 dear friends as part of my christmas pressie <3.
First i'll be 100% honest I've gone through a love hate relationship with this product, Loved it could'nt live without it to Never reached for it found it to shimmery yada yada to loving it 100% again and its a must have, im strange I no.

NOW after having this product for some time I do love it. When l first got it I had'nt been introduced to the world of you tube or Blog or any of the such, I was a make up lover and have always been a make-up fan but not to the extent to what I am now, nor did I have the knowledge I know have (kinda :P). Its only since Christmas of 2008 I have been introduced to contouring. This has allowed my judgement of Benefit 10 'sexy sweep' to change as I now understand the product.

I have a few flaws, I still have and love this product BUT unfortunantly my pink side, the highlight, has completly run out, strange considering I always used the product as one and never used the highout more then the bronzer side.It has a far more powdery consistency then the bronzer and appeared to break alot easyer.. BOOOOOOO!!

All in all I did enjoy this product considering it took a year for me to really understand the product, Im a little STUPPPPIT :P.

Have you ever used it?? what did you think? Is there a good dube?

At the Races

Hey everyone,
Last weekend it was the Irish Derby here in Ireland, at the curragh. Im not a racing girl at all, nor do I intend on becoming one, I really have no interest in betting etc BUT when the opportunity arose to attend the races on the firday night my head automatically taught DRESSING UP TIME. What girl does'nt enjoy getting all dressed up??

The firday night is very much a local night, sunday is the ladies day and is PACKED! and saturday is also very busy but friday although it is busy is less OTT in comparison with the other race days. This meant I did'nt have to dress up to the the degree as other would of during the other days. I opted for a simple black dress from River Island

Unsure whether to wear a colour or stay black with the shoes I asked the world of twitter to decide...
I wore the black New look Heels, which are slightly to big, there a size 5 and Im a 4 and a half:(
My hair was done by a friend of mine who is brilliant at hair :O did my hair for me, just a simple plait accross the top and a bit of volume, while I did my own make-up, no suprizes there then..
Earnings are Awear :D

Another place for me to ramble

Hey guys:D

So as you know this is a 'beauty' blog, well Iv decided to set up another blog for more topial issues:D

Please follow me over and Tell me what YOU wont to read about


Aloe vera How I <3 you!!

This little Baby is something that out of all my beauty products, skin care related objects I own, I could life without this!
While on Holilday about 10/11years ago to Portugal I got seriously bad sunburn (ill try find the piccy) It was so bad that while shopping one evening(I couldnt go out during the day) a women approached me and my family about my sunburn and asked me could she apply some products containing aloe Vera to my skin as she owned a store which sold such products, I agreeed and OMG I can still remember the relieve I had to this day, She had the plants in her shop and after looking at my sunburn decided the direct product was the best for my skin. It was soooo refreshing and gave me so much relieve. She asked for permission for her to put a picture of me in her shop holding the plant so people could see the extend of my sunburn and could then read how I felt about aloe Vera. Thinking back now it was a bit of a random idea, does anyone really listen to a 7/8 year old??

Anyway my point is , 7/8 years later Im still in love this this little plant:D. We bought one soon after we returned from Portugal and have one in our kitchen and Bathroom, you can take some out of it and give it to friends to regrow, you can cut as much as you wont of and it grows back.

Today it was EXTREMLY hot where I live in co kildare(Ireland), 24 degrees at 6oclock ,very strange weather for Ireland.Im a BIG supporter of caring for you skin againist sun damage, my dads side of my family are complete sun worshipers and I could never understand it. Before I apply my make-up EVERYDAY I wear a sunblock, variey the factor throughout seasons. Today at about 3olock I decided to head to the sun for a bit with my factor 3o on and a 50(kids) on my face, a hour and a half later I looked like this .......
This I guess is a blog of two sorts, try aloe vera:D, its brilliant, burns,cuts,sunburns,spots, soooo many different things.

''Aloe vera is wonderful for skin complaints and rashes, bites, burns,acne,irritable bowel syndrome,Chrons disease and sun burn. also helping you with avoiding sun burn. Aloe vera is used by adults and children.
Aloe vera helps in the production of collagen which used for mending damage to tissue. It is also used for treating psoriasis, eczema among further skin conditions. it is used to treat acid burns, radiation burns and frost bite. if you suffer from frost bite or sun burn, taking aloe vera tablets will help clear it.
Aloe vera tablets help strengthen the immune system. Aloe vera helps in multitude ways for skin, hair and your beauty.
Aloe vera is an excellent treatment for Acne and used with a skin cleansing regime is proven to clear up acne.
Aloe vera is also good for eye inflammation, ulcers, gall bladder problem, abscesses and hemorrhoids. There are some other uses of aloe vera. Ifyou have a plant in your kitchen you can use the leaf to treat burns.
Aloe vera is good for many things from the hair to the softness of the skin,treating bowel conditions,sun burn, mending wounds,beauty treatment.''
But also this is a blog to warm everyone to please take care of your skin in the sun this summer. The sun can cause so much damage from wrinkles to cancer and everything in between. Unfortunatly Many dieases cant be prevented but If someone tells me that putting a higher sunfactor on me,covering up a little,staying out of the sun during certain hours ,not using sunbeds etc could HIGHLY reduce your chances of developing skin cancer I am fully prepared to take those procautions...

Now go enjoy this glorias weather, where ever you are :D:D

Meet my bestie

Hey again everyone ,
I'd like u to meet my best friend Keara.
While celebrating the end of our exams on Tuesday and on the second bottle of wine I suggested l would do Kearas make-up.Now this isnt irregular I often do her make-up and in fact the make-up of most my firends, especially eye make-up but with 2bottles of wine in my i wasnt sure how good an idea this was ..

she has given my full promission to post these pictures cause she loves me haha

The gorgeous Keara O natural!

Keara after I attacked her...

Let me know what you think ??


face of the day

Hey girlies,
Hope everyone is doing really really well. Exams are now a thing of the past :D, so as promised a more beauty related,lovers,reviewing blog is about to take place...
I taught a good one to start with would be a fotd?Although is fathers day and Im doing not a thing today besides catching up on some much needed video watching, blog reading and tweeting I felt a urge to apply make-up.these urges come part of the parcel with beening 'slightly' make-up obsessed :D
So today I wore a very easy brown eye, and nudy lip with a purple undertone, PLEASE excuse the quality of pictures and my horrible pose haha..I have no idea why my left eyebrow looks like
Im giving you 'the Eye'

Products used:

Revlon Coloursay normal/dry skin=Buff 150
Essence Forget it 3 in 1 concealer
Bourjois Delive de Poudre bronzing powder
Benefit 10
Primark Great balls od desire (I do <3>
Active cosmetics setting powder (My rimmel broke so I had to resort to this and its not bad,for something my Nan won at bingo :D)

WOW i didnt relise I had used so much, I looks alot more then I really used, majority of these eye shadow palletes l would of only used one colour in then,manly to blend etc
Heres is a little close up of my lips.

Basically as you can prob tell from the items I used lm a strong believer in using what you can efford, My pennys brow gel works perfectly for me and l think is cost my 50cent yet I love my benefit 10!

If anyone would liek a review on only of there products or swatches please comment Below Id be more then happy to do so.
Looking forward to hearing your taughts

Leaving certificate could possibly kill me

So its should be Day 3 of the leaving certificate BUT no no no, after a ''little'' mishap by ONE supervisor l Still have only three exams done. THREE, THREE , THREE!!!! I should have both english paper one and english paper two, finito and maths one and geography. But l have yet to sit my english paper two, which will now take place tomorrow morning. GREEEEAT!

So as anyone who is reading this will have quite possibly have noticed these latest topics arent beauty nor make-up related.
I will infact promise that come the 16th of june lm all yours for anything makeup related :D:D:D

So This is where l unknowingly to this person giver her a little plug
Aoife whos blog I recomment EVERYONE of you have a look at and follow is the BEST blogger I have read in quite a while not only that, but she is a fellow Leaving cert student who unfortunatly to her has had to deal with many an emotional breakdown over twitter about this ''little summer test''.
She has both a exam blog and a make-up related blog both by which l love and enjoys reading.
I hope she wont mind this little plug but im sure she wont, shes a doll.
Thank you Aoife for being my little Online leaving cert buddy :D:D:D:D



Sunday, May 31, 2009


Its the 31st of may and Im sitting in the garden as I type this, the smell of BBQ food swimming around while unfortuantly im burried behind a pile of books:( BOOO.

The leaving cert begins on wednesday and Im currently not stressed enough haha, everyone talks about having these intense stress periods and although l will admitt I did have one the other day Im currently stress free.:D

My dog is sleeping beside me and the kids next door are playing, Dont you just love the summer . Ireland ,in the heat is the most beautiful country in the world, bit of sun and the country glows..

Anyway l taught while lm on a study break and debating going out tonight to see east 17 tonight in my local club. I know its not the best idea but l need time to destress etc

anyhow i hope everyone is having a brilliant time in the sun



Wednesday, May 27, 2009


Hey guys
okay its been a little while since my last blog, big apoligies about that but as many of you know I have the dreaded LC(refusing to say its actual name)next wednesday, so as lm on a coffee break and feeling in the need of a good owl moan Iv retreated to the beauty of blogging are you ready??


My exams start on wednesday , yes WEDNESDAY, WEDNESDAY wtf wtf wtf!! Im sending stress vides everywhere at the min and Im very sorry.Im not sure how you deal with stress but l usually find a quiet cry,bit of a roar into a pillow helps and lm sorted, unfortunantly this is not helping at ALL this time.Im sick,not sleeping properly,headaches,mood swings,spontanias outbursts of laughter, fights, and lots of tears!

Parents seem to find it hard to understand this exam stress business, which is completly understandable its been YEARS since they have had to do exams. My dad and I dont exactly have a great relationship and he is proving it to be very hard for me to respect him at all at the moment, he truely believes l should be able to study with a broom up my a*s (SORRY:() and preform magic! Luckly he doesnt live with us but yet he still manages to take huge control over my family and there understanding and believes, grrrr!

Anyway, household fights have become a regular occasion, especially today. I woke up and began study within half a hour, proud of myself :D, although l did suffer some distractions l was happy with the out come come around 4 oclock, at this stage l fell asleep at my kitchen table,highlighter in hand :%, my mam arived home and her first words where
'' you werent sleeping there??''
No its all a bloody illusion, its not really me its the extremly tired,stressed twin of your daughter, ignore it!! (again sorry)
I laughed it off and welcomed her, bla bla bla.

My dad then arrived and began to question why I hadnt cleaned the garden and done the house.Now my mam is a clean freak which we as a family have excepted , we help when we can yaddy yaddy.... We have a half day on a wednesday and we always clean the entire house and after school on the other days we help her out, obviously not everyday cause where normal teenagers.Anyway l felt the blood boil after his statement, l repled with a I have my leaving certificate in one week, Iv to much to worry about. Let me add the house is spotless !
This ended in tears as you can imagine. Told me l was selfish to think l was going to the library to study tomorow, and why couldn l study at home. DISTRACTIONS!!!!

Anyhow Im now sitting in my room with a cappiccuno and my irish books, let me add its dinner time, but l cant even look at food! My body is doing mad things at the minute and they really cant seem to understand the stress im under. I know i may sound an incredably spoilt child and l really do apoligise. I know both my parents have there own stressfull issues to deal with...At the end of the day all i need is a hug from my mam and for her to say whatever happens where proud of you!

Stupit eh?

PS: Im finished my exams on the 16th of June and from then i will be consentration on a much better detailed blog :D:D

Review time

Maybelline Lash stilleto
As you all know I purchased with little presuasion, the new Maybelline Lash stilleto last Wednesday. I did like I do with most my products, watch many you tube videos and read many reviews on here before I bought it, but honestly i think I would of tryed it even if the reviews where bad.:D
So I applyed it on wednesday night (Im not sure why,as i was prob getting ready for bed haha)
And after i had applyed 2coats my mam walked into my room and asked was I wearing False Eyelashes :D RESULT!!

The mascara claims to be lenghtning, and you add stilletos to your lashes, It doesnt mention anywhere about making your eyelashes volumising. Personally it added LOTS of length but I did apply two coats in order to get the effect I really wonted. With many Mascaras they begin to dry fast, or even if they dont when they do dry the feel quite Im not sure how to say it but almost flaky?? This mascara didnt dry like that at all, if stayed 'soft' and very easy to reapply..not only this but I found it very volumising, maybe its because the mascara itself applys very dark so allows the illussion of darker thicker lashes.

I went out for a night with the girls last night,ie DANCING!To me this is a true test for any make-up product. The heat,smoke effects,lights, and every other aspect of the modern Night life scene........ THIS MASCARA DIDN'T MOVE!! The length was the same at 4 oclock this morning, the darkness of the mascara was the same..

SO my review concludes with YES l will be repurchasing and would recommended it to everyone.:D

Iv no make up on in the below pics, so please excuse it and im growing my eyebrows out a bit before i have them butchered next week haha

This is my lashes after one coat

(sorry is is closer up but honestly it doesnt add to the effect) this is after a second coat! BIG different it you ask me :D:D

update,review and mew mascara

Hey everyone, god im getting fierce addicted to this blogging thing and as many of you know by now, I really wont to get into the more review,make-up,advice side of blogging as its my passion and as im intending on studing journalism next year this is a great help to my progress, also Im hoping on studying make-up artistry at night at some point with the intention on perhaps getting into maybe beauty journalism.
Soooo less of the wobble :D

As a below haul states, I bought the above tan, l'oreal sublime bronze for a little trail run.
On Monday I applyed it, a thin even layer all over my body. It left a lovely glow. On monday I woke up and well i was DARK DARK DARK,!! Its very even which is great and looks so healty another great bonus:D.

I used a cotton ball to apply it lightly to my hands, more to blend out my wrist haha. Its not perfectly even but im really the only one thats noticed it. My face on the other hand. I have to put my hand up and admit, I think i applyed to much :(, yest my face looked a but blochy and not as nice as my body(my tan not my own body obviously haha), i used my regular night time face routine and it seems to have talking the access away and today its lookin much much better, In fact i only wore a tiny bit of concealer for the day and some rosy bronze/blush, very natural and comforable to wear.

It says on the bottle to reapply every 3days to maintain your tan, that would mean I should reapply today and honestly i dont need to, I might reapply tomor evening, or firday will see how it looks after a few more showers and will return with a update review

Today thanks to the reviews by many of my favority you tube and blog gurus i picked up lash stileto
I havent had a chance to give it a go yet, but i love the brush :D cant wait to try it out tomorrow and return for a review:D
hope everyones having a great wednesday, half way through the week wooohooo..

So as many of you know Iv been trying to find a tonic to just give me a boost during my exams and just to get myself on, Last week l got sick and had a chest infection,l went to my doctor and got some atibotics, i also asked about a tonic and he strongly agreed expecially after been sick last year.

So of to the local chemist l went to get a presciption filled and i spoke to my pharmasist about a tonic, she recommended morEPA, and told me how she used it all throught college and continues to,to this day.

''MorEPAis a highly concentrated EPA food supplement (at least 500 mg Eicosapentaenoic acid, known as EPA per capsule), which is supplemented with lipid stabilising antioxidants.
MorEPA capsules are tasty and chewable. This makes them suitable for people who do not like the fishy taste of normal fish oil capsules, or for people who have difficulty swallowing pills. 60 capsules per bottle for one to two months supply''

''To maintain emotional and physical well being,supporting concentration,joint,skin and cardiac health''

sounds good to EH??It retails for just under €30 which is very pricey for me :( but you get two months worth and your healths worth it right?
Im talking them for a week and my concentration has defo inproved, Im feeling great but time will only tell how they really work.

Do you take a suppliament if so which one??



A little bit of summer

Its the 4th of May, ie offically summer, can we celebrate that for a minute ..........

So like many of you I like to have a summer glow/tan, and because Iv got the irish complexion in the way that im pale and freckly and that Im very careful regarding the sun, in the sence that I try to wear sun cream every day especially on the sunny days. I also wont use sun beds and I know I am cracking open a can of debate worms by saying this but I strongly believe there are SOOOO many amazing fake tan, sprays,mouses,gels, absolutly everything to give you a fab fake colour without going near the dangers of a sun bed. Cancer is far to common and devestating. Im sure every single one of you have been touched by it so if i know taking this one procaution can maybe prevent skin cancer Im fully prepared to take it, not to mention the other disadvantages it has.

Iv been on a hunt for a Tan for a while now, but my problem is financially I cant afford to really spend much money on something that lets face it, most of them need to be repurchased quite alot.For those who have read my other blog posts, you will be aware that Iv been using Dove summer glow, which I know Lollipop26 is a fan of, and l really love it its so moisterising and handy to whip on just before bed, and wake with a glow, But I really need something with a better tan pay-of. When I use dove if l'v only appication of it on l find lm applying my Rimmal mouse on top for nights out, which l have no problem doing but lm still looking for that something else.
Through friends recommendations, I bought this,the l'oreal sublime bronze self tanning gel,tinted and shimmering, instant results'. I've heard quite alot about it and its results.I applyed it today and its tinted so you can see where you have applyed it, ALWAYS a bonus when it comes to streaks. Its slightly oily so glinds around a little but I've found a oil free version so there goes that problem. Its only on a few hours but straight away my mother commented on how my face looked and how it was glowing, AGAIN another great thing :D. Its designed for your face and body which means no purchasing two different ones, ie money saved. Smell wise its not to bad, u can defo smell it but its distant and you need to actually go to smell it to really get the whif.
Ill keep it on tonight, shower in the morning and see how friends react to it in school and get back to you about the results, so far im liking this product. Will it be my new must have??
What tanners do you swear by? Do you tan? what are your tips?

skin care issues SOLVED and a little update haul :D

Hey Hey, as anyone who follows me on twitter knows iv had some minor skin issues , boooooo.
Iv had very dry patches and isolated breakouts anyhow i went on a mad hunt for something that would suit my sensitive skin,

Meet my new life saver :D, Johnsons Baby Soothing naturals,
Its designed for babys skin,face and body, to relieve dry skin from the first use. :D So a baby product on troubled skin?? IT WORKS!! my skin is like silk, spots have clearned up and any dry patchs are a thing of the past .
I must admit though i have been using another product and i strongly believe its helped clear the blemishes, from the first use my skin looked soooo much more heathy,exactly what i was looking for. Prehaps im shouldnt be reviewing both of these at the same point to together they have solved my skin issues that where really making me feel very Anxious, not good....My second product is

Also getting of the topic of the topic of skin care, i FINALLY found my graduation dress YAY, iv been on a hunt to find a dress which i usually wouldn wear yet i really love and to my suprise AWEAR had it.
I really really love it, its shorter then the knee but not by much. On a hunt to find shoes now so any advice wud be greatly appriciated :D.

I also went to the chemist on firday after watching dazzledust25(btw check her out, love her vids and its great to finally see a brill Irish Guru x) i felt a serious urge to get some essence products, essence is a make-up brand available in Ireland, im not sure if its available anywhere else but its unbelievably cheep and is suprisingly good quality especially for there price bracket.
Iv been a fan of there 2-in-1 blusher for quite a while.I use 01 almost famous

I love this!!

So i picked up a few more bits :D
Ultra Strong nail repair.

This is Ciao Bella Eyeshadow quad, the pic here really isnt doin it justice but my own camera is in a friends so when i get it back i will upload a pic!:D

or u can check out there website

Forget it concealer, which iv heard LOADS about so hopefully will live up to my expectations :D

I think thats it:D

FINALLY l have a haul, although its a cheapy one its still a haul and im excited haha
I went out yest with a friend and wothout relisin the time it was 6oclock before we where in town after stoppin for coffee, so the only shop open was unfortunatly pennys(primark). I love this shop for bargins but i never expect quality, we all love a bargin so i cant complain. Usually all id pick up there would be socks,lingerie,a bit of jewerelly,the cotton runner things, and little tops. Basically becaus ethere DIRT cheap and you cant pick sooooo much for sooooooo cheap.
So yest I decided i was going to buy some bits for my €4. I was confident but knew what I would get would prob be rubbish bu ti mentally needed to buy something so

YES i picked all this up and most importantly IN IRELAND i found a bargin SHOCKING!!!!

Item number 1-Four REALLY pigmented eyeshadows, my camera is rubbish and wont let me take of flash so Im sorry, the colour beside the black and purple is far more pink then showin up here.

This is a lip and cheek tint, similar to benitint, and really really easy to blend:D

This is a gorgeous navy nail varish :D:D

This is face highlighter that is my new love, maybe its because its sooooo cheap but its really really nice to use

this is a bit 8o's but i love it!! haha blue glitter :D:D
al these products cost €2.50!!!!!!
One product that wasnt pennys is my new fav lip product by oriflame
its called peach but its my perfect nude
