    Review: No7 Stay Perfect Foundation

    A little while ago I said I was going to do a proper review on my new foundation, so here it is πŸ™‚ For ages I was wearing a foundation that I did not like, it was just too orange and thick for my skin tone even though I bought the lightest shade available. Anyway, I had heard good things about “No7 Stay Perfect” and saw a girl wearing it who was just as pale as I am. She was wearing the shade “calico”. My mum ended up treating me to this, it cost her just under nineteen euro, in Boots (obvs). I have to say it is just as…

    Rant Of The Week: People

    The main thing that has annoyed me this week was people. I’m not even going to get started on Jamelias comments on Loose Women, I will never sing Superstar on SingStar again.. The other person that annoyed me this week was some random old lady I met as I was getting on the bus. We were both queuing and as I got on first she turned to her husband and said “I’m trying to get on but this girl thinks it’s perfectly okay for HER to skip the queue.” Skip the queue? The mass of 3 people all beside each other you mean? You’d swear she was Kate Middleton in…

Have you always had the interest?A: No not always, myself and Harry started playing music when I was 15 and Harry was 16. He…

    Rant Of The Week: Time To Move On From Hair Dye In Schools Being Frowned Upon?

    When I was in school, many things annoyed me, but nothing annoyed me more than not being allowed to have the freedom to dye my hair. What does one do if they’re the Kylie Jenner of the family but are told that’s not okay and have to be Kendall? As over dramatic as it may sound to other people, that was not okay for me. I didn’t want to be Kendall. I remember being told I needed to dye my hair back a “normal” colour for the fear of what people would think of me if I walked into town in my school uniform. I was also told I would…

    Home Is Where The Heart Is

    This blog post is a bit out of the blue, but I felt it was appropriate for this chapter of my life. I have always been a home bird, even when I was younger I used to hate the thought of even going on sleepovers (with the gossip and junk food obsessed lady I am, that’s weird I know). I don’t know what it is, I just always felt a sense of insecurity and upset when I was away from home.  When I used to hear the phrase “home is where the heart is” I always used to think that meant home was home. My house, my bed, my family,…

    Rant Of The Week: 5 beauty blunders that need to stop

    Now I know I’m no Mila Kunis but seriously, what is happening to natural good looks? I hadn’t seen my boyfriend for a week and in that time I bought a lighter, more natural foundation and the first thing he said to me when we were reunited was “You don’t have any makeup on do you? Did you always look like that?” Alright babes I don’t sweat EstΓ©e Lauder double wear. I love my makeup and fashion but there’s some things that we just need to take a step back from… 1. Contouring gone wrongContouring started as a great trend but now its just gotten to the stage where girls…

    Beauty on a budget: Plumping powder- €22 vs €4

    As a huge SoSueMe fan I’m always keeping up with her posts and envy her gorgeous hair πŸ™‚ I saw one today about how she uses Kevin.Murphy powder puff volumising powder for adding volume to her hair since she has had it cut. It costs €22 and looks like a fab product! However, if you’re like me and need beauty on a budget I would highly recommend my favourite hair product, Batiste plumping powder πŸ™‚ it only costs €4 and is available in Penneys. I can’t live without it and it does exactly what the €22 one does πŸ™‚ I always go on about this product because I cannot stress…

    Rant Of The Week: Why Don’t I Have Granny Hair?

    Guys, there is no love story more beautiful than that of my hair and I, so needless to say, I am too excited about the latest trend to take over heads worldwide: Granny Hair.  I think it is such a gorgeous look and am devastated that I just have balayage in my hair (that is sooo 2014). Very tempted to persuade my hairdresser, my mum Nicky to let me dye my hair grey. Unfortunately, I can’t carry around the Valencia filter with me on a daily basis so don’t know if I would quite look like those grey haired beauties on Instagram, but worth a try, right?  Why is this…

    Powder, Thongs And Perfect Shopping

    Hey guys! I went up to Dublin this week for a few days so decided to share with you some of the things that I bought. I only spent around 30 euro altogether on shopping and was delighted. I have been wanting to try the Cinderella Essence range out and finally bought something! I chose the Highlighter Powder because it looked so lovely and shimmery. I was right, at less than five euro you can’t go wrong. Mac who?  I couldn’t resist these Looney Tunes thongs in Penneys. They were €3.50 for a pack of 3 and look how cute they are!  I also bought several strap tops in Penneys because…
