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.

On Sunday I headed out to Howth for a walk.

I ended up in the market, hich is held every weekend in Howth where I picked up these amaing mini cupcakes which are €1.70 each they wore yum

Hope everyone had a great week

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.

017

Exfoliating gloves everyone knows you have to prep before tanning

016

Exfoliating sponge ok that’s what I am calling them I know I am wrong so if anyone knows let me know.

009

Lush granny takes a dip, skies and fluffy white clouds and blackberry bath bomb have to say everything in this basket smells amazing thanks to these bath bombs.

010 018 019

This was top of my wish list so I was so happy to see it naked urban decay on the run haven’t even used it yet but will let you know how I get on.

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.

020

Faux fur fluffy very fluffy River Island bag this bag was gotten in the sale before Christmas as I may have dropped one or two hints that it was reduced.

021 022

Last but not least a candy cane

024

I was so surprised by this hamper and I love everything can’t wait to try it all out.

Lots of Love
