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
