Snapchat has quickly become one of my favourite social media outlets (is that even a phrase?). I love it because it’s raw and unedited and you can share things as you do them.
While I only use snapchat for sending snaps between friends I do love following my favourite bloggers and celebrities. It’s a chance to get a glimpse in to their everyday world. But it’s tough to find people to follow and so I thought I’d share with you who I follow and so you could maybe find some new people. It’d be great if you could let me know who you like to follow by leaving me a comment.

I love being a tourist! Not the kind that walks around mindlessly taking a bazillion photos but the kind that gets ridiculously excited about seeing a places landmarks in real life, learning the history behind it and experiencing it for myself. Those landmarks make a place special.

I have always enjoyed reading what other Bloggers and YouTubers use on their faces everyday and so I thought I would share mine too. I use all drugstore products except on my eyebrows.

A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend (Conrad) and I decided to celebrate my exams finishing by going out for dinner. We wanted to try somewhere different and opted for Stix and Stones, Belfast. Being huge steak lovers the restaurant looked perfect for us as it specializes in steak and seafood.

Remember the easy days of just applying foundation with a sponge? Granted, it probably didn’t look too great but foundation life was pretty easy. Then came along the foundation revolution in the form of the flat head foundation brush. Make up went on much more smoothly than ever before.
Fast forward to now and makeup brushes are every gals best friend. We’ve got about 10 for each different part of our face. But do you really know the difference between all those foundation brushes you’ve hoarded over the years because a YouTuber told you it was their absolute fave? I came across this info graphic a little while ago from The Beauty Department and it completely changed my attitude towards foundation brushes and so I thought I’d share it with you as well as letting you know which brand of brush I use.
I bought one of these because I was intrigued by how they worked. This brush is perfect for light coverage. The brush I use isn’t great; it’s just a cheap one from Superdrug. The hairs fall out and always end up on my face.

While it’s not particularly warm today in Ireland; it is officially summer. That means there is an occasional hot day here and there and on the other days most of the country is preparing for a fortnight in Spain or similar. Either way, our hair will be susceptible to some damage by the sun.
By now most of us are well adapted to looking after our skin in the sunshine- USE SUNSCREEN PEOPLE! But what about our hair? Last summer I experienced a burnt hairline for the first time. Believe me when I say it was so sore! I also noticed my hair got much dryer in the heat and a little more brittle too. Luckily, I don’t dye my hair so my natural colour just lightened (yaaayyyy) but I know that heat mixed with soaking in a pool can play havoc with your hair.
So whether you live in occasionally-sunny Ireland or (almost) always-sunny California, read on for my tips to keeping your hair healthy in the sunshine.
