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''
''WHAT?? OH MY GOD''
''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!!!
I'M STILL IN COMPLETE SHOCK AND DISBELIEVE!!

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) ...

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 :)

So as anyone who is reading this will have quite possibly have noticed these latest topics arent beauty nor make-up related.
IM VERY SORRY TO ANYONE WHO EXPECTED REVIEWS OR HAULS OR ANYTHING REMOTELY FUN!
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

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

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!
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

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??

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
