Ingredients for a Natural Smokey Eye| W7 Makeup

SAMSUNG CSC

Is there anything more fun than trying out new makeup? Recently, I tried out some bits from W7 Makeup, a brand I had heard a little about but never got to try before. They have some great pieces at really affordable prices and quite a few dupes of higher end products .

2015/02/img_47912.jpgTrainers are everywhere at the moment. It’s a trend I have admired for a long time after seeing some street style photos from London Fashion Week last year, but didn’t give it a go myself until recently. Continue reading

Barcelona: The Beginning of the 2015 Travels

I am back; back from Barcelona and back to blogging.

My other half treated me to a trip to Barcelona for Christmas. It’s becoming quite the tradition of trips as presents. Last year we went to London, the year before was Malta (where I planned out this blog) and the year before that was Stockholm.

It’s a great way to escape and recuperate after the festive season and to satisfy my wanderlust (seriously, it’s a real condition).

My Highlights of 2014 and a Great Big Thank You

Hello,

I hope you all had a great Christmas season and aren’t too hungover today…

I never really get to fully enjoy this time of year. I always have exams pretty soon into the new year. This year is my final year so this year has been very quiet. It also means that blogging lacks around this time too (my apologies, but I’d rather take time out rather than write something I don’t enjoy writing or you won’t enjoy reading.)

However I did want to take some time out of learning about how a trust can fail to say THANK YOU.

Thank you for reading my blog and getting involved in my social media pages over the past year. I’ve really noticed an increase in the past few months and hope 2015 will be the year it all takes off.

For that reason, I am going to be making some changes to my blog in the new year. For the better I hope. I want to start writing some makeup tutorials and to include way more outfits on here. I also want to document my travels better and my love for food too. I am also going to aim to blog more regularly, at least 4 times a week. Thoughts below please?

If you have anything you’d like to read more about or any suggestions I would love for you to post it below or email me.

I thought I’d take a chance to run through some of my favourite moments of 2014. It was a pretty good year for me and I am excited to see what 2015 will bring both in the world of blogging and in my personal life.

Lazy Girl Guide: 12 Everyday Outfit Ideas with Minimal Effort

It’s early in the morning, you’ve got uni in an hour, it’s cold and you’re wrapped up in bed and you just don’t want to get up.

We’ve all been there. Hitting the snooze button one too many times, leaving ourselves very little time to get ready and then panicking on what to wear.

Oh it’s tough being a Lazy Girl. Never fear, there are some items you can add to your wardrobe to create the perfect interchange-able, stylish , I-didn’t-even-make-any-effort outfits (scroll down to see what they are).

For now, here are some outfits to inspire you how to put them all together.

The key is to put together a few basic items and include a standout item. This could be some fancy shoes, a pretty bag or just a big oversized scarf.

6 Beauty Mistakes you’re Probably Making

IMG_3549.JPG

1. Don’t apply your foundation when your moisturiser is not fully absorbed.
Although most of us probably already know this rule, we often neglect the importance of it. Apply moisturiser before anything else and use the time to do your hair, get dressed, brush your teeth, eat breakfast, anything other than applying your foundation.

2. Don’t wear your ponytail in the same position every time.
I know, I know you’ve found the perfect height for your pony, but the hair experts have noted that this is bad for your hair. Wearing it in the same position every time means your hair at that area will weaken. So switch it up between a high pony, medium pony and low pony. Continue reading

What it’s Really Like to Enter a Rose of Tralee Selection

The search for the 2015 Rose of Tralee, is well under way. If you are outside of Ireland; the Rose of Tralee is a festival which celebrates Irish heritage. There are centres in Ireland, UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Austrailia and New Zealand. A representative is chosen from each centre, who then gather in Tralee, Couty Kerry during the summer for a festival. One overall representative is then chosen to represent both her home centre and the island of Ireland on a global scale.

Last year (2013), I decided to enter my local centres selection. I am no stranger to these kind of competitions, but the Rose of Tralee is the most prestigious one I have entered and the nerves were high. However, it was also the most enjoyable competition I have entered.

I thought I would give you a little recount of how I found the whole process and an insiders scoop, just in case any one was thinking of entering.
