    Smiling Isn’t Just For Selfies!

    I know I don’t usually write on a very serious note but I recently had an experience that made me appreciate the little things in life. Walking by myself on the outskirts of town a few days ago I passed an elderly lady who was walking her dog, I smiled at her and said hello, thinking nothing of it. To my surprise she stopped me and her face was filled with joy. She thanked me for smiling at her because she said “I have passed so many people on my walk today and you are only the second person to smile at me”. She then went on to tell me…

    Escaping The Friendzone And Getting Skittles Put Up My Nose

    Boys are weird. I have had this belief since I was about eight and will continue to have this belief for the rest of my days. This was proven when I was little and the love of my life at the time told me I was having a bad hair day. Naturally I was upset but my mum told me when boys are mean it means they like you. Well, that told me everything that I need to know about men! He was the type of boy to bully you in the playground at lunch and tell you that you resemble a gremlin. I used to love that kind of…

    My Favourite Foundation For Night-time: Estee Lauder- Double Wear

    When I am getting ready to go out at night one of the main things that I worry about is making sure my skin looks flawless and blemish free. For this full coverage I use Estee Lauder Double Wear. It literally covers every imperfection and stays on so well that if you forget to take your makeup off afterwards (or conk out in the middle of eating your kebab in bed like I do), when you wake up the next morning it looks like you’re ready to hit the town again! I would usually buy this in a darker shade than my own skin tone so that I can blend…

    My Favourite Foundation For Everyday Use: Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation.

    My favourite foundation for during the day is ‘Ideal Flawless, Invisible Coverage Foundation’ by Avon. Since I am so pale (look like a ghost 95% of the time), I used to find it difficult to find a foundation to match my skin tone. Luckily, I found this foundation which is perfect for my own skin tone because it is available in a light pink shade. This is so close to my own skin tone but gives me an even complexion and covers blemishes. Definitely my favourite foundation for everyday use because it looks so natural. Unfortunately, Avon are no longer in Ireland so you’ll need to purchase it online.  However,…

    If There’s One Direction You’re Taking It Should Be Back Out The Door…

    Now before I get any hate from One Direction obsessed teenage girls I would just like to point out that I do in fact love One Direction, I have seen them in concert and well lets face it, I wouldn’t say no to any of them! On the other hand, am I the only person who has realised that they aren’t exactly an ideal group of guys judging by their lyrics? Now don’t worry, I know they told you you’re insecure and they don’t know what for and you light up their world like nobody else blah blah blah and I’m sure you do, but I just have to mention…

    The Best Moisturiser That You Will Ever Have. Ever.

    One of the most annoying things for many girls is the issue of dry skin. It can make us really self conscious and we try to cover it up with makeup, but of course, that only worsens the problem by making it even more noticeable. I have been struggling with this for the majority of my teenage years and no moisturisers were helping, until now. Luckily, some weeks ago a miracle happened. As I was shopping I was drawn in by a pink tube on one of the shelves of Penneys makeup section. It was “Moisture Match- Dry To Very Dry Skin” by Garnier. Was I really going to leave…
