New Youtuber to Follow; Sian Walton

OMG so I cant across this girl on instagram I don't remember how but that's besides the point, Her name is Sian Walton. I followed her on instagram not only because she was stunning but she also is very into the gym and I just wanted to follow her as she gives tips and she had an amazing body!!

I then came across her on youtube, one day she just popped up on recommended. So I watches a one or two videos and I was hooked. She gives such good information about workouts and different exercises that I had never tried or knew about it.

She has a video up of her squat routine which is quiet tough but I did give it a go in the gym about two time but I'e been so busy lately I haven't made it to the gym. which is so upsetting because i just feel like a slob when i don't go every now and then.

Anyways if you are into fitness I would 100% recommend her to get healthy and to follow her routines or to even just take advantage while your quite for a while.

Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2016

That time of year again! The Victoria Secret Fashion show was on last night in Paris. The one night of the year where you really consider your new years resolution is to going the gym and actually do it this year. As always the models looked AMAZING! 

Performing on the night was:

Lady Gaga                Bruno Mars                 The Weeknd

I wonder are The Weeknd and Bella Hadid back on or are they just cool with each other. If any of ye saw the pictures of her walking down the catwalk people were saying she was giving him shade others were saying she was smiling at him and he definitely was looking her up and down like we all were, as she was gorgeous looking.

Irina Shayk announced that she was pregnant after the show. which you would never have been able to tell but when you look back at her outfits she had her stomach kind of covered up. She looked fabulous as always she is DEFINITELY one of my favourites. If not my favourite.

Here's a few pictures is any of ye haven't seen already:

Make Up Course Update

I missed my class last week as I was running late and then I just got frustrated and didn't end up going. Then today my boyfriends car wouldn't start so I wasn't able to get home to go to the course which was a pity.

So far my opinion on the course is that it definitely isn't what I expected. The first week we did the face but it was very natural. I usual don't try to match my skin colour and my foundation colour as then I would be getting foundation that is ghost white since its winter. I thought since the teacher wears very dark make up, which I love as ye know, she would show is different looks such as a natural look, a dewy look, a night time look, but we just did a natural enough look with a little contour.

Then for the next two weeks we just did different eye looks. which were nice on some people but they just didn't suit me I don't think, or maybe I just wasn't used to them? Then last week I knew from the week before that in last weeks class we would be doing a pink and purple eye, Which once again i don't think would be my thing. So when I missed tonight's class I wasn't too upset because I assumed we would just be doing another eye look which wouldnt satisfy me.

I'm not trying to say the course is bad I just dont think I got much out of it as I thought I would. 
I think the make up teacher was wonderful and she is extremely talented. I just don't wear extreme eye colour and wear a lot of eyeshadow on my bottom lid.

I have one more class left next week and then im done. I am looking forward to it I hope I enjoy is and learn something new. x

Organisation: College

I would think i'm a pretty organized person. As in my room at home I have my wardrobe organized and i'm very ocd about it. I have a it organized in a way that all jumpers are together, all skirts, all dresses, all jeans and all tops are all kept together. If someone hangs up a top beside my dresses it actually frustrates me. I also have my make up organised I have brushes in one bag and make up in the other.

College is something I most definitely am not organised for. That's college work that I mean. I leave everything last minute and only do it when the due date is about 3/2/1 day away. Which sometime is grand i'll get away with it but then other times i'm literally felt with no time if I try to fit some sleep in there too. Ino i'm not they only one out there that is the exact same. More than likely the majority of people are the same as me.

So for next semester I've told myself that I must at least try and do my work and get it out of the way ASAP. Some people try to tell themselves this over and over again but in fairness I never tell myself i'm try be more organised cause I know i'd only be fooling myself. But this time now I think I will put in a bit of effort and try. Hopefully it won't be hard to stick to because it would just be a weight off my shoulders when I finish it and don't have to worry about it anymore.

So if your like me then maybe join me for the second semester and try do your work ASAP and be more organised... it might not suit you some people actually work better under pressure. Which I think I'm not to bad at but ill give this ago anyways and see.

Cloud10beauty // BeautyBay Buys

I've never bought anything from cloud10beauty or beauty bay until today. Not for any reason mainly just because I never had money and also because I only recently enough found out about the websites. I cant wait to see how fast the shipping is and to see if I got everything I ordered and if the stuff I bought was good. I have a feeling ill be buying a lot from these websites in the future.

They have so much brands available that we cant buy in Ireland which is such a great help when you want to purchase something in the US but you have to pay so mucn on taxes when they are shipped to Ireland.

Anyways so today I purchased just a few bits from both sites.


Spectrum Tulip Powder Brush C03

I can't wait to see how these brushes work and if they are as good as what i'v heard about them. I love the colours of the Spectrum Brushes they are so cool.

I got two liner brushes and two pots of the anastasia brow gel one of each for my sister for christmas. They have a guide to help you choose what colour will best suit you which is very helpful. Once again I bought another Spectrum Brush as i'm on the hunt for a good foundation brush that I really like.
I'm excited to try the anastasia beverly hills brow gel to see if its as good as everyone says it is.

I'll Fill ye in on how I find the products when I get them.


Wednesday, 16 November 2016


So i'm looking to get my nails done for christmas. I love getting acrylics done because they last that bit longer. I've never actually had gel nails done before by my friend usually gets gels I they last for about 2-3 week usually whereas i'd definitely get 4 weeks out of the acrylics. The only thing tho is how bad my nails are after the acrylics come off. I usually just wait till they fall off or I pull them off. Which I know is SO bad and doesn't help my problem at all but I just cant justify paying bout €15 to get them taken off.

The shape is a tough decision also because you see so many pretty pictures on instagram and tumblr and then you get them and there not the same as the picture. I guess that's the same with you hair when you show the hairdresser a picture but you never end up just like the picture.
I love Pointed, square and coffin for shapes when i get my nails done.

I'd like to get a cool colour put on but then i'd be afraid if they wouldn't look good with different outfits and stuff. I guess ill just have to use trial and error to figure that one out and I could always paint over them I suppose. The last time I went to get my nails done I wanted to get a bright orange. My nail lady wasn't really pushing for me to get them and since I was a little nervous I chickened out. Whereas if she was to push me a little I would probably have gone for it. Anyways enough about that I'm just going to post a few different pictures and in the comment if ye could say if ye prefer A, B, C, D, or E ill then get the ones ye recommend.

A - Bright Orange

B - Pale Blue

C- Nude 

D - Deep Redy Burgundy Brown colour

E - Baby Pink

Big Brother

I LOVE big Brother!! It's actually like one of my favourite tv shows, If not my favourite. One time when the Uk series was finished I started watching the australian version. That's how much I love it!!

So apparently for the series in the new year there are rumours that Big Brother is bringing back the most memorable house mates from previous series such as Katie Price, Stephen Bear ( who was only there a few months back), Katie Hopkins, Lee Ryan and Perez Hilton and more.

Im so excited if Bear is Back. At the beginning of the last series I thought Bear was so annoying and i really disliked him. After a few days I loved him. He was so funny and made great tv. If I was in the house the same time as him I probably would  have a very different opinion on him but from being on the other side of the screen i really enjoyed watching him.

I also love katie price so if she is in it I cant wait to see her. Unlike Katie Hopkins, I really don't like so i'm not excited to see her as I feel like she will not only wreck my head but the majority of people watching the series. Although she might be entertaining, we wont be long finding out. I just don't understand why people give her attention. She only loves it and i think she is very hypocritical!!

I liked Lee Ryan when he was in the show until he was going back and fourth between Jasmine Waltz and Casey Batchelor. That didn't give him a very good image.

Anyways that's enough rambling from me. I might do another post on this if there is more info released. x

Inlgot: Keilidh's Pro Palette

The fabulous Keilidh from Inglot's pro team released her palette this week. Because of this Inglot stores all over the country hosted a night tonight where you where able to purchase the Keilidh palette and also there was 10% off all products.

Keilidh's palette is made up of mainly purple colours and a pinky transfer colour with also a matt black. The colours are absolutely beautiful and all the different looks Keilidh herself and other Inglot girls are so cool and pretty. I'm just not there yet with confidence to try out these out there colours.

Me and on of my friends went to the new Inglot store in waterford. I just bought 4 eyeshadows to add to my little Inglot collection from last week's blog post. I didn't get the Keilidh palette as I don't think I am confident enough yet to use such bright, bold colours. BUT I did buy a purple eyeshadow just to give it a go and I can also pop in and buy a pinky colour when I get better in the coming weeks of the make up course I'm attending.

Trump as President

So Unfortunately Donald Trump Won the Presidential election in America. I think I kind of knew he was going to win but now that its reality I'm like woah I didn't think it would ACTUALLY happen... but it did. I honestly don't know how the people of America are coping with this dreadful news.

Listening to the radio and reading different things online there are so many different views on Trump for president.
Some people are just so anti Hillary which is the only reason they voted for Trump not because they actually like him. Which I was as well but I am so uneducated on the background of the candidate all I heard was that she had people killed years ago. I know there is no excuse for that but I came across a video on facebook that showed all the good Hillary has done in the past.
Some people like a lot of celebrities where pro Hillary such as Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Jenifer Lopez to name a few. Miley Cyrus even shared a video of herself crying showing how upset it made her that Hillary lost out to Trump.

As I said above I'm not the most educated on candidates background but from the little bits I've heard over social media and from people Trump a man who has openly admitted to sexually assaulting people, a racist, against the LGBT community and just overall an absolutely horrible person I just don't understand how he is the president of the USA.

I don't think Kanye running for president in 2020 is such a ludicrous idea anymore.

Coats & Jackets

With winter and the cold weather creeping up on us its time to start buying our winter coats and jackets. I love coats and jackets cause I think it can change the look or and outfit and you cant dress them up or dress them down, depending on the type of coat/jacket you have I suppose. Being in college in Waterford you 100% need a good jacket. I cant stress enough how cold it is in Waterford. It's sooooooo much colder then Cork!!!

So I came across both a coat and a jacket that I really like.

The jacket is from missguided and I have ordered it so just waiting for it to arrive to my house. I mainly want to wear this jacket for going out but also it's wearable dressy and casual.

The coats I saw and fell in love with is from boohoo. It's so in fashion and will got great with a lot of different looks.I haven't bought the coat but wish to in the near future. The only thing about this coat is that I have broad shoulders and I'm afraid that it won't sit nicely on me and made me look very broad and square.

Tan Time.

During the summer depending on the weather and if I go abroad I usually don't need to wear tan as my skin tans very well. Unfortunately during the rest of the months on the year especially the winter months I am as pale as a ghost, no word of a lie. So I like to wear tan on nights out and also on my hands or my legs if there are slits in my jeans etc.
So today I want to just tell ye the tans that I use and that work best for me.

Rimmel Sun Shimmer.

I absolutely love this tan. It comes out straight away and also developes for an hour afterwards. This tan lasts for a few days too. It wont just wash straight off after a shower it takes a good scrub to get it off and maybe a few showers. 
Before a festival last year I applied it three days before the festival shower then applied it the next day, showered and applied it again that evening and I swear to god it wasn't one bit streaky or patchy for the whole three days of the festival. Keeping in mind that the festival was three days long!
I always get the dark colour.

Coco Brown.

This is another tan that I love. Some people don't like it that much. Maybe it just suits some peoples skin and not others im not sure. One thing I am sure of is that it does suit my skin. It is never streaky on me or patchy and also is such a nice dark colour, and for those of you who follow my blog you know I like to look tanned. This tan also will last for a few days so your not back to your pale self the next day.

Sally Hansen.

I love the colour of Sally Hansen's Tan but I only like using the cream textured tan as I usually use mouse tan and its so easy to spread and I find the cream easy to spread too. The spray tan I just find once you spray it you quickly have to rub it in trying not to make it streaky or patchy. And once you have a patch its hard to get rid of it or blend it. 
This tan does give you the nicest colour as if your skin was airbrushed!

Make Up Brushes

A few weeks back before I started my make up course I wanted to buy a new set of brushes as I felt I had to. I decided not to because I was like what if Sarah (Sarah Cummins, my make up teacher) recommends different brushes to what I just bought. And luckily I did wait till I started because even though I may not buy the exact same brushes I know what kind of brushes she uses for different things so I can just buy the same type of just from different brands.
Here are a few different brush brands that are really good and I always hear bloggers I follow on about them.

Nima Brushes
Nima brushes are always the same blue colour tiffany and co. use. I ALWAYS see bloggers such as ruth Burgen and Terrie McEvoy talking about them.

Morphe Brushes

Spectrum Brushes
Spectrum use such pretty and cool colour on there brushes and there packaging is also so cute!!

Beauty Websites

Here area few websites that will be very useful for ordering make up or skincare products since most of them you can buy in Ireland. If you buy products from a usa website usually the shipping is gona cost a bit and then sometimes there are taxes you have to pay when what you have ordered has entered the country and then after all that money and waiting something you think is it even worth it?

(I haven't actually ordered anything off these websites but I do know that from seeing reviews and listening to other bloggers that they are very good.)

Beauty Bay
This website has hair, make up, skincare and nail products. its basically got everything. They have such a wide choice of brands for example:

  • Gerard cosmetics 
  • Kevyn Aucoin
  • L.A Girl
  • Make up Geek 
  • Mario Badescu
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 
  • and LOADS more
and I always hear the bloggers I follow on snapchat saying they ordered from beauty bay so you then know its good.

 This also another website bloggers talk about. Once again it had brand on it that you are unable to get in ireland. They stock both men and women's products, mainly women's though. Aswell they sell hair, make up, skincare, nails, brushes and tool products.  Cloud10 Beauty stock simliar brands to beauty bay if not the same
  • Blank Canvas
  • DuWop
  • Bellamianta Tan
  • Kardashian beauty
  • Lottie London
  • Nip and Fab
  • Sigma beauty
  • SoSu by Suzanne Jackson
  • Spectrum
and thats just to name a hand full..

About a month from now my boyfriend and I are going to Berlin. I'm so excited for a number of reasons:

  • I've never been to Berlin before.
  • It's my first time going foreign with my boyfriend.
  • My first time to the European christmas markets
  • A break from college.

I can't wait to go away at this time of year because I don't think I've ever gone overseas (besides London) at this time of year. Usually I go away at summer for sun holidays. So this will be a first at experiencing the weather in other countries at winter time. Also it look's so magical in all the picture online, nothing like you would get in Ireland, well in Cork anyways.

When I get back I will post pictures of the city and the markets to show ye all.

L'Oreal Infallible Foundation

After watching Desi Perkins youtube video of her favourite foundations I said I would try some out. She says she has oily skin and so do I so whatever foundation suits her skins will suit me too majority of the time.

Instead of going off and buying the high end expensive brands I opted for the drugstore brand that are more affordable. She mentions two L'Oreal foundations and a Revlon  foundation, all under €20. So how can you go wrong?

The first one I bought and tested out is the L'Oreal Infallible foundation. I've seen this in shops before but I just don't love the packaging hence I was never really drawn to it but since Desi recommended I guess it must be good. I Got a dark enough colour cause I like being tanned looking. I must say I really like it. The colour is lovely and it does last a long time. It also has great coverage.

I'll update on the other foundations when I've tested them out.

Eye Shadows

I'm actually so bad at buying eye shadows. My mam and sister always seem to have them so I just don't even bother. But recently when my sister isn't at home sometimes I'm like ugh I need her eye shadows but she has taken them with her. So having started the 6 week make up course I said I better start investing.

I love the way in Inglot and other places you can buy a palette and then buy eye shadows separately and they stick to the palette magnetically. There are some really nice palettes out there but realistically your never gona use all the colours in it. So at least with the empty palettes you can choose colours that you like and that suit you best.


Inglot Sell empty palettes and separate eye shadows which I think is such a good idea. They sell different sized palettes and then the range of colour that have is huge.
There eye shadows sold separately are about €6 each. Then the palette prices obviously are priced differently depending on they size of the palette. The biggest palette is roughly €20.


MAC also sell circular shaped individual eye shadows. I'm not too sure of their prices but I think there are also about €6. They also sell palettes. Just like Inglot they sell palettes with little slots to fit the shape of the eyeshadow and palettes that have no dividers which I think are better, because you can fit different shaped eye shadow pots into it.

Make Up Geek.

Make up Geek sell a beautiful range of different eye shadows as well. Once again they are about €6. They are sold online you aren't able to buy them in ireland.

Halloween is only around the corner now and I've no idea what I'm going to dress up as. From following make up artists on snapchat I've seen a few face paint tutorials so I thought I'd help ye with some ideas that ye can try out if ye are stuck like me and I might also figure out what I'll be while writing this post.

Desi Perkins

Desi up loaded a tutorial on her youtube page of a melting skull. Her face is half proper make up half face paint. It looks so hard but as she shows you step by step it isn't as hard as you would think.

Jodi Roche

Jodi Roche last week did a tutorial on her snapchat of also a melting skull. She got her inspo from Desi and did her own version on it. Since Jodi did the tutorial on snapchat you can no longer see it but she is doing two more halloween tutorials on snapchat this weekend one on saturday and one on sunday, so get adding her if your interested. 
Snapchat - liljodibubz

Rebecca Lyons

Rebecca Lyons did a lion tutorial on her snapchat. She said she got her inspo from mua Laura Dempsey. Rebecca also did a gold skull look which is a little but of a change up from the average skull face paint.

There are so many Halloween face paint tutorials they are just a few I seen and liked. There are so many tutorials on youtube for halloween. I'll leave a few links below if you are interested.

Easy deer look tutorial

                                                               Werewolf makeup tutorial


Harley Quinn

Ruth Bergin did an absolutely amazing job creating a gypsy look. unfortunately she hasn't videoed it anywhere but I just think it so good I wanted to show ye. I guess you can try recreating the look yourself but looking at the picture.
