Life update

I’ve become so lazy with my blog lately, as I am loving instagram and the stories. I never got into snapchat but I still do use it, I think because I seem to have a lot of men following me on their. Which is strange and I get a lot of message from them informing me I shop way to much lol.

So gonna also use my life update as my bits and bobs shopping that I haven’t shown you yet, this weeks bit and bobs, is PJ’s and Slippers. I picked up a few weeks ago from you guessed it Penneys/Primark. I’m just loving the rabbit ear slipper, I even picked up a secound pair.img_5968-1

 I have been living in the bath latly after I paid a visit to lush, I just love bath bombs and they are so relaxing.

The first one I used was you’ve been mangoed bath oil, I have never used a bath oil from Lush before, first thing you notice is it is very small compared to the bath bombs and it smells amazing very citrus which maked me think of holidays. Now their is no bubbles with this one but the smell makes up for it, also left my skin feeling very soft only thing is it left the bath with a green making where the water was, I kinda thaught I was that dirty turned out it wasn’t me lol.

Up next was Karma Bubble bar, I love bubbles so this was perfect again its citrus smell which I love and the glitter which I like. The day I used this Karma, I was wrecked and had the bath just before bed to help me relax and it worked a treat.

Next up is Sakura bath bomb  which is disapointing the smell isn’t that strong and didn’t change the bath water that much just to a pinkish colour so was very disapointed.

So last week in Ireland and again this week is a bus strike on Thursday and Friday, so I have been on the 6.15am train in the morning that explains my tiredness. On Friday I ended up going to work with no make up on, don’t worry it was still dark out and I done my make up when I arrived in so because I was so early I had loads of time to do it and take my time.

I’m loving No7 lipstick I’m going to do a proper review on it.

Also I finally wore my new shirt from Penney/Primark and sleevless Camel jacket from River Island which I love and is perfect in this weather.

Day out in Howth

With Saint Patrick’s day coming up a lot of tourist are going to be over and there is no denying Dublin can be very expensive city but there is still things to do that won’t cost you a fortune and a trip to Howth is one of them he best way to get to Howth is by train its about 25 minutes from Connolly train station to Howth and will cost you around €6.60 return.

Howth is a small fishing village that the Norse vikings  colonised and built the settlement of Dublin as a strategic base between Scandinavia and the Mediterranean ok I am not going to bore you and go too much into the history part but Howth has a beautiful harbour and has some amazing views and its lovely watching the fishing boats come in and looking at the seals and if you like to cliff walk Howth is the place to go but be warned if you are afraid of heights it’s not for you. If you’re like me and prefer a stroll along the harbour and then a few pints this is a perfect day trip there are some fantastic pubs and in the summer its lovely to have a drink outside in the sea breeze the last time I was in Howth we went for Afternoon tea in one of the Marie Louise tearooms and if I remember rightly it was €27 for two people which isn’t too bad but if it’s a nice day why not bring your own lunch and have picnic or even better get fish and chips and sit on the grass watching the world go by.
