    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…

    My Five Simple Steps To Big Hair

    When it comes to my hair, volume is my favourite word! I cannot go on a night out when my hair looks flat, it just kills my mood and my outfit. Somebody once said to me that I looked like I had been dragged through a bush backwards. Mission accomplished!So, if you’re like me and love hair that is full of volume here are the 5 simple steps that I take… 1) Blowdrying. After I have washed my hair I tend to blowdry it quite straight until the end when I flip my head over and dry it upside down for a while to add some bounce. 2) Backcombing. I…

    10 Things I Won’t Miss About School

    So the Leaving Cert results are out and it’s time to head out into the big, bad world. The thoughts of leaving school are scary but here are ten things that I won’t exactly be crying about… 1) Attempting to plan a bladder timetable. “Miss, can I go to the bathroom?” “Why didn’t you go at lunch?” Oh hang on, let me just ask my bladder why it’s being so inconsiderate…2) “Always be yourself” *dyes hair* “Dear god she went against the regulations of my kingdom, unleash the flying monkeys from my office asap!”3) When you’re doing meditation for religion and your stomach decides to choose this moment to make…

    The Stress Of Unnecessary Leaving Cert Hype. Head Is Pure Fried.

    Now that the Leaving Cert results are out I’m questioning whether the stress was worth it. Gained about 20 stone from excessively eating dairy milk whole nut bars and have no nails left from nervous biting. I also did not appreciate just being a number in the system. Why is there such a crazy hype around the Leaving Cert? There are plenty of other routes, and why do you need pointless subjects that don’t relate in any way to the job that you want to do? The maths course is ridiculously horrendous and I will only use the simple parts again so why did I spend so long trying to…

    Because you can’t beat a good old size 10!

    Things that I’m not happy about today- Trying to make my waist recover from squeezing into a size 8 pair of skinny jeans twelve hours ago. World War 3 has broken out on my face. My house is bloody FREEZING. Probs having something healthy for dinner. Things that I’m happy about today-  There is carrot cake in the kitchen. This is one of those days where I’d be expected to be hit with comments such as “Have you put on weight? It suits you”, “You look awfully pale, are you feeling alright?”, “Maybe if you try blah blah blah your skin might clear up a bit” Thanks for the concern…

    The Most Adventurous Thing That I Have Ever Done

    So as many people may already know, I am the biggest girly girl you will ever meet. Ever. I wouldn’t be seen dead in a tracksuit in public and the word sport may as well not exist in my vocabulary. The amount of trees that were probably chopped down to cater for my fake sick notes for PE classes during my 14 years of school is quite worrying. Yes, I know I’m fairly boring. No sense of adventure, no longing to risk my life jumping from a plane or swimming with sharks etc. However, about two weeks ago this dramatically changed as my sister persuaded me to go on a..dun…
