Life Update

I really need to push myself to do this weekly, as I just keep forgetting about it.

I can’t believe its August already and summer is nearly over, I have to admit I prefer winter. I know but Irish summers are so strange one minute it’s to warm, cold, raining, dry, hot again you don’t know what to be wearing lol.

Let’s start with my nails, I got this nail polish yonks ago but love this bright colour its Rimmel London 105 you had me at hello, I even love the name.

On Saturday I got my hair done and I have been so good my hair hasn’t been near a GHD in about 2 months now, I did get a curly blow dry from my hair dressers but once a month is ok.
Also loving snapchat filters.

I also went to my favourite steak place FX Buckley in Temple bar it was so good and I even had a glass of red wine, I’m not a red wine fan but it was nice but just one glass is enough.

This month I plan on being more organised so I am starting a bullet Journal so any tips to help me be more organised, please let me know.

Lots of Love

My Week

I should really change this to my two weeks, the first week I really didn’t get up to much just took it easy as work has been very busy. 

Last week my new hair products arrived from Deva Curl so I am trying the curly method so far so good, I am no longer using Shampoo or brushing my hair using my hands in the shower to get any knots out.
Will do a full review in a few weeks.

My Week

My week should really be changed the last two weeks, as last week I really didn’t get up to that much as I wasn’t feeling myself.

I still picked up a few bits in penneys. a make up bag which i think is €8, I could be wrong. It even has a place to hold your make-up brushes.

IMG_5203[1]

I also decided to pick up Penneys/Primark new make up range PS Pro. I went for a lipliner, lip primer and lipstick so far not loving it. I have only worn it once and it wasn’t great I’m not sure if it was the primer or the lipstick it was blotchy. I am gonna try it again and do a proper review.

IMG_5210[1]

I also picked up a gold card holder in Dunnes Store for €5,
I spotted this on Dreaming in Sequins snap chat she is an Irish blogger and is one of my favourites and she is so nice.

IMG_5242[1]

This Friday I went out for after work cocktails to the Vintage cocktail club, I love this club you have to prebook and also the front door is hidden away in Temple bar and the cockatils are amazing.

On Saturday I got my hair cut in the Curly Look its a hair dressers in Glasnevin that is all about curl care and i was told to wear my hair curly which a hair dresser has never asked me to do before, I am going to do a full and honest review.

Lots of Love

My life update

I was meant to do this once a week, of course life got in the way. I haven’t written one of these since February .

So expect loads of pictures and I’ll try and keep it short and sweet.

This week has been a busy week it was my nephews confirmation and I was his sponcer which is a big deal. I was up early and got my hair done.


I decided to wear culotte baby blue suit I picked up in river island last year.  

After the church we all headed to the Harvest pub in Balbrigan for a meal. I decided to go for chicken wings for starters and steak for main and it was all yum.

   
My friend had a beautiful baby boy two weeks ago, she hadn’t been well so I had to wait to meet the new baby which meant baby clothes shopping so I headed to Next.  

Yesterday I went shopping for a swimsuit for my holiday I booked a few weeks ago to Algrave in May.

  
Last few weeks,  quick update loads of shopping.

  

Fun days out looking at war ships, coffee and drinks


 New make up review to come very soon

 I’m also on snap chat


Have a great Sunday

Lots of love

Last Two Weeks

I decided last week not to do my week as nothing ovely exciting happened so I decided to do it over two weeks and share whats happening.

On Monday My Package arrived from Retro Boutique and the packageing is so pretty I’m planning on doing outfit post soon.

IMG_3119[1]

I got my eyebrows done this week they needed to be done badly I always go to Brow Boutique in Jervis Centre as I know I’m in safe hands.

IMG_3217[1]

The weather has been so cold lately and I’ve been just wrapped up all week in my favourite coat from River Island.

IMG_3054[1]

On Friday I decided I needed a little cheering up as it Valentines weekend I’m single so of course I popped into Penneys and picked up some new shirts.

IMG_3178[1]

I also picked up a small picture for my bedroom wall on sale for 50cent in penneys

IMG_3173[1]

This week I just seem to be wearing work clothes and I came across a dress I forgot all about I picked this up about year ago in the River Island sale.

IMG_3165[1]

On Saturday I had to wear one of my new shirts and I also got my hair done as I was going out for a few drinks in Town.

IMG_3203[1]

For some strange reason the only picture i have from that night I don’t have shoes on but loving my hair.

IMG_3232[1]

Again I was boring again this week I’m blaming the weather I can’t handle the cold at all but I did  get mink eyelashes done I got my first set in January but I still had a few on so I went with a 1/2 set this time which cost me €40 from Late night beauty salon in Temple bar and so happy with the results.

IMG_3315[1]

I also done a small bit of shopping in Penneys and will be showing everyone tomorrow what I picked up.

 IMG_0583[1]

On Saturday I went out for drinks so I had my hair and make up booked in with OM Salon in Clarehall the girls are just amazing and always listen to what you want IMG_3448[1]

Have to say I felt like a million doller.

On Sunday I took it easy and had a bath and finally used some of my lush bath bombs IMG_2484[1]

My Week

I kinda feel I have lost my blogging mojo lately so I decieded to start showing bits of my week I admit this won’t happen every week as my life is just not that interesting.

Last Monday I deicded my room needed brighten up so I picked up a few bit in Penneys/Primark and when its all finished I will show you all, for now I think I need more pillows.

IMG_3020[1]

On Wednesday my New Look delivery arrived and it is amazing I will do an outfit post as its been a while since I have done one.

 

On Thursday I finally got to try Aungier Danger Doughnuts which opened a pop up shop in Arnotts six doughnuts for €18 which is a complete rip off. I went for a caramel doughnut and oreo doughnut, caramel doughnut was so disapointing the oreo doughnut was nice but wouldn’t be rushing back.

IMG_3040[1]

On friday on the way to work I recieved a lovely rose in the train station as Lidl wore doing a promation and I have to say it put a smile on my face

IMG_3060[1]

I went for dinner with the girls to La Maison  a french Restaurant in Castlemarket street we went for an early bird which was a three course meal for €29

la_maison_castle_market_dublin_large

For starter I went for the goats cheese and it was delish and so did the rest of the girls.

IMG_3063[1]

For main I went for Bavette Steak with Gratin Dauphinois which for lovely now the waiter told us to have it cooked medium rare and thats the way I like my steak cooked and thats what we went with but the steak was mediem as it wasn’t pink at all and my friend went for the Salmon and she said it was perfect.

For dessert I went for a berry tart and ice cream which was just perfect and my friend went for a chocolate mouse she loved it I did try it and it was way to rich for me.

I decided to take it easy all weekend and relaxed.
On Sunday I went to watch the Rugby match in the pub and wore my new boots I picked up last week in Penneys and they are very comfy.

IMG_3099[1]

Also just done my nails i didn’t make any hair appointments this weekend and decided to do my hair myself I have very curly hair so I find it hard to manage and I also hate when its straight so i popped the rollers in after blow drying to give it some volume and it worked out well.

Lots of love
