Christmas Gifts!

 Hi everyonee!! I don't think I actually asked you how your Christmas went so I apologize for that! I hope you had an amazing Christmas and spent a lot of quality time with your families and friends! Like last year, I decided to take some photos of few of the things I've gotten for my family. And like I said last year, this post is not me trying to brag or show off or anything, I personally like these kinds of posts so why not make one myself! These are mainly for my mom and sister, because I don't think anyone would want to see drills and all kinds of manly things haha. 

I decided to create a kind of a 'MakeUp Starter Kit' for my mom, since she always has to get makeup from me, so why not get her her own? In it I put makeup brushes and all that basic things that girls use in their daily makeup routine, ie. Foundation, powder, mascara, eyeliner etc. 

Soo.. Let's have a look at it! 

Foundation - Rimmel 'Match Perfection'
Eyeliner - Rimmel 'Glam Eyes'
Powder - Rimmel 'Stay Matte'
Mascara - Miss Sporty 'Pump Up Booster Fast and Furious Mascara' 
Lipgloss - Catrice 'Infinite Shine'


Eyeliner and Eyeshadow - L'Oreal ( As you can see above )

I wanted to get my mom the Real Techniques brushes, but while I was in Primark I've seen their rather impressive brushes collection, so I decided to have a look at them. And OMG IF YOU HAVE A PRIMARK NEAR YOU, YOU GO GET THEM BRUSHES GIRL! They are so so so soft! And really inexpensive. Great for beginners actually!

Being weird, I got a few things for myself also! In Boots, if you spent 20 euro or more on L'Oreal products you got a free gift. And at first I wanted to give the gift to my mom but when I looked at the products I knew my mom wouldn't really use them. So I was like, 'Whoa, Merry Christmas to me!'

Isn't it beautiful?!

I got myself a few more things but I forgot to take photos! There were Essence lip liners on which I will do a separate post on. Pressed powders, primers, etc. I have a photo on my Instagram of those things if you're curious enough. 

These things I got for my sister. I was actually so excited for her to open her present! You can say I spent a bit on her stuff but I think it was worth every cent. I hope that she likes her present! Cause if she didn't I have no problem with taking them things for myself haha. 

Do you ever get jealous of the things you get for others? Yeah? Well it's me now.. I mean Benefit!

And now... The most adorable things I have ever seen. I walked into Claire's and I fell in love. I actually got those back in early November, and I couldn't wait for my mom and sister to see them. They actually use them too! I didn't really expect them to, to be honest! 

So this is it! I got a few more bits and pieces but I just forgot to take pictures afterwards! I'm sorry about that. I hope you liked the post! Let me know in the comments what you got your family and friends for Christmas!

My 2014 recap...

So, 2014 aka the weirdest year I've ever had in my life (so far), has come to an end. 
Welcome 2015. 
I decided to think of this year as an empty book which, however it sounds, only I can write. I never actually believed in new year resolutions, I also wrote about this a year or two ago Click Here,
but this year is different. And I know, I know, you might think this is another one of them 'New Year New Me' posts, and guess what.. You're totally right! But before I make plans and resolutions for the year 2015, I should probably look over 2014. 

So, what happened in the crazy year that was 2014?

Let's just say.. A lot!

A year ago today, I sat down with my laptop and created a bucket list for 2014. 
I didn't finish it, sadly. But I do have most of the stuff crossed off of it. 

-Get a beautiful debs dress
-Try sushi
-Pass my leaving cert

Are only a few of the points I have written down. I did succeed on getting a beautiful debs dress, or passing my leaving cert. Sadly, didn't have sushi yet. Maybe this year. Who knows.
So... Leaving cert. I think that my year was crazy because of it. Everything has changed since then. I moved out of my parents' house, went into a huge University, had to become more independent. And guess what, I love it! I know I used to talk about how scared I was and stuff but I er.. changed my mind? Okay, embarrassingly enough, my mock leaving cert went awful. As bad as it sounds I only got 195 points in it, out of 600. But thankfully in the actual exam I got way way wayy more than that so I got into the University I wanted to go to. Not my dream course, but it'll take me another year to be happy with it (it's complicated). It was such a change! I had to do things on my own, which I always try to surround myself with people, I don't like to be alone. I made two amazing friends on the very first day. They are two of the few people I share a house with. This was also on my bucket list, 

-Make at least two friends on the first day of college

We are so close together it's quite amazing haha. I'm a rather quiet and a shy person but they made me more outgoing and 'stuff' I guess. The loner me finally started going out, and it makes me so happy. I literally can't thank them enough for it. 

But with going out, come the things that go along with it. 

-Get drunk 

So many of you might think that it's a bad thing, but I do believe that you have to try everything at least once. And this was one of them. To be honest, I'm not a great fan of alcohol, and don't necessarily see myself going out everyday or even 3 times a week. You definitely wont see me drinking. Didn't really enjoy the whole experience, because I'm a strong believer that you can have fun without alcohol. But everyone likes different things, and that's okay. 

-Not eat chocolate for 6 months

Okay... Well... That didn't happen...
Over the year 2014 I took my health and fitness more seriously and have managed to lose lots and lots of weight which makes me happy, but I'm not stopping there. From size 16-18, I went to 12-14. My goal is size 8. And I plan to reach that goal in 2015. Actually quite excited for it. And being all honest here, the only reasons why I don't want to lose more weight are; because I don't want my boobs to get smaller AND I've gotten some really amazing clothes and it'd be a shame if they got too big. 
But losing weight means more shopping so why not?!

-Watch The Fault in Our Stars in the cinema

I was crying in the cinema, when I walked out of the cinema, AND when I got home. 
Why oh why.. I can never watch that movie without crying. Just.. No..

-Say 'I love you and mean it'  

Oh God, here comes the cringe... 
2014 was a year of heartbreaks. And oh it wasn't nice. You know what girls, it took me 17 years to realize that boys, in fact, are 'stupid'? No. Maybe I wouldn't say stupid, more like 'Don't get things'.
So a wee bit of advice. 
-Do not drop hints, they won't get them. Don't waste your time.
-They sometimes think that doing the wrong (to us, girls) things, are okay. This makes me so mad actually haha. So deal with it. Or try to explain that you don't find it 'okay'.
But other than that they are quite great, and cute, and cuddly and just perf. 

-Go somewhere exotic for the summer holidays

Majooorca!!! Went there with my sister. Just the two of us. And I loved it! I can't wait to go back!! 

So basically I made a lot of friends. I'm more confident. I'm in University. I started a YouTube channel! And I really can't wait to see what's gonna happen in 2015! 

Do I have any plans for 2015?

Other than the usual ( Trying to be a better me ) I really want to be successful in college, and put extra effort into my blog and YouTube channel. And if you know me in real life, and noticed I haven't been posting for a while punch me. Seriously, don't warn me. Just punch me in the face right there and then. Thank you x

PS. Happy New Year to you all! I hope that this year will be better than the last one! 

What are your New Year Resolutions?

Christmas Sweater OD

Hi there!!
I'm home for the weekend, well I should actually be studying for my last two exams that are next week, and I know I left my blog for a bit, and I'm sorry. I'm back with a rather Christmassy post. Okay, Christmas jumpers. Who has them? I got one from my sister last year, it actually lights up, which so embarrassingly hilarious. Of course I love it, and a big thank you goes to my sister. But has anyone noticed that the jumpers get a whole lot more hype than they used to? So basically, you don't have a Christmas jumper, you're not living your life right? But do not worry, my friend, I am here to show you different jumpers from different shops, and that are also quite 'wearable' and don't light up like a Christmas tree ( ha ha hano ). Soooo leggo..

 So, all three of these babies are from New Look 

Now, here's the fun part. Cause who doesn't like Tesco brand clothes?!

Oh Topshop. You babe <3

What would a clothes post be without my lovely ROMWE

And, I eh, tried to find some funny jumpers as a nice end to the post but I kept finding really inappropriate ones. So.. I'm sorry. 
I'm soon starting my Christmas holidays, I'm then making my first youtube video!! So see you then!

Skin Perfection..

    Hi darlings! 
I'm back with a new post! This time, no complaining about college or anything else, but getting straight into it! Today's post is completely beauty related. So I'm a part of this group on Facebook, it was created by one of the coolest beauty gurus on YouTube, Shaaanxo, and I've seen the girls RAAVE about the micellar water, so I decided to give it a try for my blog, plus it was quite cheap! 4euro per bottle isn't that bad I think. I had to choose from the Garnier ones and the L'oreal, and I decided to go with the L'oreal because it seemed a bit fancier ;) And it had the toner to go with it. 
Soo.. Here's a little background.

L'oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

Basically water. So what the bottle says it does is that it's supposed to 1. Dissolve makeup, 2. Unclog pores and remove impurities and 3. Tone and soothe the skin. So, does it really do what it says it does? As you can probably tell I have used a good bit more than half of the bottle so I can give you a honest (as always) review on it. I was in no way sponsored by L'oreal to make this post, I just did it because... Well, because I could. So, answering the question, does it really do what it says it does? Well my answer is.. No, no it doesn't. 1. Does not dissolve makeup, well yeah, it does help you remove it but you have to rub and apply pressure and that's not great if you have sensitive eyes like I do. Again, this is my opinion so it might not be the same for everybody, if it worked for you then I'm happy and you should definitely teach me your ways! And if it didn't, well hi5 sister, join the club. 2. I have not noticed if it unclogged my pores because mine aren't that visible which I'm very happy about, but I didn't notice any blackheads coming up so that's a good thing I suppose. 3. Did not tone or soothe my skin, it actually didn't do anything for it. 
So, out of 10?
3/10 for this baby right there. 
You just pay 4 euro (or more) for a fancy bottle of water, from a fancy company. 
Will I repurchase? No. 

L'oreal Skin Perfection Velvety-Soft Toner.


Oh sweet baby Jesus! This thing smells UH-MAZING! But. Does it work? Yes! Yes it does! And it makes me a happy happy individual! It smells amazing, a little bit of it goes a really long way and it does everything that it says it's supposed to! It leaves your skin so so so soft! I would recommend it to everyone! 
So, out of 10?
Seriously, you (yes you reading this, you beautiful creature) need this in your life. 
Will I repurchase? DUH!

So this is it for today, I'm sorry I'm so late with everything but I promise to write whenever I can. 

See you in another post.

Rest in Peace

Hi there!

How is everyone? I've been fine! College really is hard work! I have so many assignments that I truly don't know where to start! But, enough about that, because this post is written in memory of the late Oscar de la Renta. Surely, as many other people, I was deeply saddened to hear that one of my main inspirations has passed away. Back in my 'fashion designer' times I was greatly inspired by his work, his amazing pieces weren't only things celebrities wore to the red carpet events, they were true pieces of art, for example the latest gown he designed especially for the 'forever a bachelor (well - not - anymore) ' George Clooney's wife, Amal Alamuddin ( Perhaps now Amal Clooney ). But let's not forget other amazing designs Sarah Jessica Parker has worn for events like this years MET Gala, or the last collection created by de la Renta, his spring/summer 2015 show. I always dreamed of getting my wedding dress designed by Oscar de la Renta. It would be the most beautiful thing anyone has ever seen, but I guess it won't happen. Anyway, I hope that years and years from now, Oscar de la Renta will still be remembered, and that the company still runs, creating more amazing designs.

Rest in Peace

Hi there,
I NEED TO GET NEW CLOTHES! Well, I went shopping a few days ago, and I got quite a few things. I'm kinda upset I didn't take pictures of the stuff I got. Maybe when I go back to my room in Galway I will since I left all my stuff there! Anyway, this post is like a guideline for me and maybe for you if you are planning to go do some fall clothes shopping. None of the photos are mine, I found them all on tumblr! I'm posting some pictures since I don't really have much time to write a post, I left my laptop charger in the cloak room in my university! I will go get it later on today hopefully!


I'm sorry this post was super quick, I'll make it up to you! I promise!!
