My Christmas

I hope everyone had a Happy Christmas. Christmas is all about traditions, in my house you always got one present Christmas Eve and of course Christmas Eve pyjamas.

This year I went for the grinch pyjamas and I just love my Christmas Eve box

It alway has things for a relaxing Christmas Eve, face mask, nail polish, shower gel, grinch sock and my favourite jelly’s.

Christmas Day, I have to say I was spoiled rotten this year, with all my favourites.

On Christmas Day, I wore my Warehouse sale outfit. That just arrived on Christmas Eve and I love a co-ordinate.

On Christmas night, I always have new pyjama. I’m a little bit obsessed, with pyjamas.

St Stephen’s day, is always a fun day. It’s is nearly like a second Christmas Day, as we alway have another big turkey dinner.

I wore a suit, I picked up in Penney’s/Primark, a few months ago. This suit had to be taken up the joys of been 5’1. I also picked up a white knit jumper also from Penney’s/primark.

I did pick up a few bits in the sales and I cannot wait to show you, it’s abit annoying as it all has to be taken up first.

Happy shopping

Lots of love

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.

NYX Epic black mousse Liner

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

Christmas Beauty and Fashion Hamper

I hope everyone had a happy new year.

I was meant to do more blogging over Christmas but I was a bit lazy so today I am going to try and catch up and I really want to show you some of my Christmas presents.

My Mam made me up a lovely hamper of treats and I have been dying to show you all and today is the first day I have kind of had a chance to sit down look at it myself some of the products I will review at a later date which is a good thing because after Friday I am on a spending ban, I know you’re thinking why wait till tomorrow because I want to go to Penney’s/Primark and buy a one or two more treats but I still have some sale stuff I picked up online and am waiting on them to arrive.

002

So back to the hamper I got three Christmas crackers not normal Christmas crackers but beauty Christmas crackers

No 7 cracker with mini mascara and mini eye pencil

003

Penney’s/ Primark cracker with eye shadow, nail polish and lip-gloss

008

Penney’s/ Primark cracker with two nail polishes I really like this cracker packaging is so pretty

004

Cocoa Brown gift set 1 hour tan, tough stuff body scrub and gentle bronze gradual tan I adore this tan and think it’s the best tan out there, I haven’t tried gentle bronze before so will let you know how I get on.

013

Blusher brushes I hate bringing out good brushes on nights out as I lose them and I lost my last Penney’s/ Primark brush so this is perfect replacement.

012

Self-tan Applicator mitt I really needed one of these my old ones needed to be binned.

005 006 007

Creepy hand as I am calling it but so handy to store rings on.

014 015

Christmas hamper would not be the same without socks I love these Minnie mouse socks

011

This was the first thing on my list and I really, really wanted it and the faux fur keying is from river island but you add it to your handbag to add an extra touch and I love the color grey.
