Current Favourites

It is a long time since I posted a favourites video! I am not sure why because they are my favourite types videos to watch!! The past few months have been a whirlwind of new products releases and different events in my own blog life. So I thought to go along side the favourites video, I would give you all a little up date on things that have gone on with the blog. March saw me head on an amazing trip to Barcelona with Flormar for the launch of their new extreme Matte lipsticks. These lipsticks are really beautiful. There are 8 shades to pick from and while they are…

Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette Tutorial and review

If you follow any of my social media, you will have heard me talk about this palette again and again. The Violet Voss Holy Grail palette, is one of those palettes that has taken the hearts of many a beauty lover. When you look at it, it is not hard to see why. The Violet Voss palette is a warm tone lovers dream palette. It has 20 warm toned shadows that are a mix of both matte and shimmers. Often with eyeshadow palettes, there are either too many of the same type of colour, or not enough shades to create several different looks. This is most certainly not the case…

Current Makeup Favourites

It is a very long time since I have recorded a monthly favourites. In fact I would nearly go as far as to say it has been two years!! With life getting in the way, YouTube fell to the wayside. However, 2017 is the year I am getting back on the YouTube horse and bringing you more video. I’ve tried more new makeup than ever before and I have so many bits that I want to share with you. So expect even more favourites ! I have also grown a pair and started to record some makeup tutorials. I always felt my lack of makeup qualification held me back. I’ve…

Blank Canvas Master Series One Palette Tutorial

I am not normally one for tutorials. In fact, I tend to avoid them like the plague. I often feel that my lack of qualifications in makeup, makes me hold back in showing how I apply my makeup. However, I’ve come to the realisation, that qualifications are not a big deal for things like youtube. So I have decided to give tutorials another go. As I tend to flash the other products that I use quite quickly, I thought I would tell you a little about them here. Push Rudy Nudy You may have heard me talk about this product before, but this is honestly one of the best, if not…

2016 Budget favourites

2016 budget favourites

What a year 2016 was! For so many, 2016 will be chalked down as one to forget. It was the year that saw a multitude of celebrity deaths. World politics went a little of track and there seemed like there was a lot of personal heartache on my timeline.  However, for me, 2016 was one of the best yet. As 2016 was the year I became a mammy! I am sure you’ve heard it again and again, but there really is nothing that can prepare you for the love you feel for a tiny human. Even the sleepless nights are manageable, as you’re getting up to feed the tiny person you made and love!…

What’s inside The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar?

Beauty advent calendars are a big deal! Forget opening a door everyday to reveal a little square of chocolate, as for most people this no longer cuts it when it comes to advent! We have now upped our game,  wanting all sorts of luxurious beauty goodies behind our advent calendar doors instead. There is no arguing the fact that beauty calendars are not cheap. With promises of a large beauty bounty, luxurious samples and full size products, there is an ever growing amount of beauty calendars hitting the market each christmas. Unfortunately not all of these calendars are created equal and they don’t always live up to the hype that…

Stylpro makeup brush cleaner Pros and Cons

A few months ago, the StylPro brush cleaner hit the beauty world and caused an absolutely massive amount of interest and a rush from beauty lovers to buy the latest gadget. The StylPro was hailed as a game changer for makeup lovers, as it was  going to take the hassle out of cleaning your makeup brushes. Not only would it clean them in seconds, but it promised to dry them too. It sounded too good to be true and with all the positive reviews surrounding it, I was more than a little sceptical. When my very own Style Pro landed in my post box from Meaghers pharmacy, I was more than ready…

My Ride or Die products

With so many products coming through the door  everyday both from generous companies and from my secret online shopping escapades, I tend to switch up the products I use quite a bit. I always make sure to give products thorough testing before I review them, but I often find that once the blog post is written, it is onto the next product that needs reviewing. However, even though I change my products quicker than the Irish weather on a summers day, I always have my die hard products that I fall back on. My ride or die products. Ride of die products are those items of makeup that you continually repurchase…

Babyliss Heated Smoothing brush first impressions

When it comes to hair straightening it is a long way from an iron and a towel we have come! I remember the very first time I saw a hair straighteners. I couldn’t understand what my friend was doing!

The latest tool to land on my desk to try out, is the Babyliss heated smoothing brush. I had seen these all over social media for the for a while now…

Star buys from the new releases from Wet n Wild

A few weeks ago I was sent a number of products to try out from the Wet n Wild new releases. Long time readers of the blog will know that I am a big Wet n Wild fan and many of their products are in my regular makeup rotation. Like with any makeup brand, there will be products that suit you and some that don’t. For today’s post I have picked out my star buys from the new releases that not only hold their own with other affordable brands, but in some cases rival that of their higher end counterparts.

Makeup bag essentials / Makeup for beginners

It will come as no surprise to you lovely lot, that talking about makeup is one of my absolute favourite things to do. I love nothing more than being in a group of woman talking all things beauty. I love helping people pick new products and advising them what will and won’t work for them. However, so often I hear women say, ” Sure I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I haven’t a clue what I should or shouldn’t have in my makeup bag”. Well I have finally put together a video showing you exactly what you need to have a finished look. As filling your makeup bag can be…

October Favourites

It’s that time of the month again. No not the time where I sit on the couch, cry and eat lots of chocolate, but my monthly favourites time. I’ve tried many new products this month, that I am just dying to tell you about. However, as usual, I forgot to include a product that I have absolultey adored in my video, so I thought I would tell you about it here before you watch my favourites below. Over the past few weeks there has been an awful lot of hype surrounding the Cocoa Brown instant tans. I would say at this point almost every single blogger has mentioned them or written…

How to get big, bouncy, curly hair

If there is one thing I love, it is big massive bouncy and curly hair. My hair is my absolute pride and joy.  I really am like some sort of modern day Samson, as a lot of my confidence lies in how my hair looks. When my hair is on point, my confidence soars. Most of you will already know that I have worn hair extensions for a long time now. For the past 5 and a half months I have been wearing Gold Fever Hair extensions and my god I love them. While I have worn other extensions before, the real difference with Gold Fever is in the quality of…

The Mac Haul

Seriously, could I milk these haul videos anymore? I have finally edited my final haul for you guys and this time it is packed full of products that you can actually get in Ireland, so be warned. This will not be good for your bank account, but if it is any consolation, you will look fabulous!! I’m sure there will be people wondering why I bought so much Mac when it is available in Ireland. Well here’s the thing. It is quite a bit cheaper in the States then it is on our fair Isle. Yes like everything else, we seem to be a soft touch for the extra few…

Christian Louboutin Wedding shoes unboxing

By the time this post goes live I will be a married woman. A scary thought!!! I mean how in god’s name can I be someones wife? Surely a wife in an apron wearing, iron loving, brown bread backing homely woman? Rather than a makeup loving hobbit!! A few weeks ago I posted a picture on Facebook of the bag in which my wedding shoes came in, and so many of you asked to see them. So I thought rather than just posting a picture, I would do something a little bit different and I decided to record an unboxing video. It was actually Laura from My Makeup Perspective that…

Disappointing Products

At the beginning of the year, I posted a video on products that left me feeling a little on the disappointed side. So many of you loved that video and have requested an updated version of it. Over the past few months I have compiled a list of products that just didn’t do it for me and some that left me feeling very hard done by after parting with my hard earned cash and I thought it only fair that I should share these products with you guys. With all the products that I try out every week there are bound to be a few that leave me wanting more.…

Quick and easy everyday hair and makeup to get an extra 10 minutes in bed!

There is one thing I am most certainly not and that is a morning person. I must hit the snooze button at least 5 times every single morning. Even when it comes to the last alarm and i know I have no choice but to get out of the bed, I moan and groan about how I am not cut out of this life! I hate getting up in the mornings, so if I can claw back and extra 10 minutes in bed I am all for that. Over the past few months, I have perfected getting reading in the morning down to a fine art. I have now trained…

A little Mac haul

Ok so I am using the term haul a little loosely here as technically a haul is only a haul if you hand over your hard earned cash, but this week I received some seriously wonderful Mac products that I just had to share with you immediately. Over the coming weeks, I will be using every single product that is featured in today’s video and each will get there own individual post, but for now I wanted to bring you something that I have done before, and record a first impressions video. I love watching videos like this, so I hope it is something that you guys like. As most…

My makeup collection and makeup storage ideas

This post has been a very long time coming. For months I have threatened to record a video showing how I store my makeup.  I held off recording for a very long time as I felt the storage wasn’t exactly how I wanted it. Now, I have realised, that while it may not be perfect yet, it may still give you guys ideas on how to store your makeup. The vast majority of my makeup storage is very affordable and from Ikea. The desk is the Malm dressing table and cost €100. It has a pull out drawer with good space and comes with a glass top. The long drawer unit is the Alex…

Kylie Jenner Inspired tutorial

Ok so take the name of this tutorial with a pinch of salt. I was stuck for a name! It’s really only the lips that look anyway Kylie Jenner inspired!! A few weeks ago, when heading off to Galway for the ITWBN event, I posted a picture of the makeup above. So many of you emailed me, or posted on the picture itself, that you would love to see a tutorial. As it is such an easy look to do, I decided to recreate this look in a video, which I have linked down below. I am not trained in makeup, so if I can do a look like this,…

Most disappointing products from 2014

In 2014 I tried some amount of new products. With the amount of products I tried, I am bound to find a few that just didn’t work out for me. While I love to tell you guys about the products that worked for me, I also think it’s important to give you an insight into what didn’t work for me. It is worth noting, that just because something didn’t work out for me, doesn’t necessarily make it bad. It just means that I didn’t like it and while I do go on a rant or two in this video, some of the products still have good points to them. Sadly some…
