Goodbye 2013!

So we're in the last hours of 2013 and, like every blogger right now, I thought I'd look back on the year just gone. Like everyone I've had my highs and lows but overall 2013 has been a great year. I graduated from college, got accepted to do a Masters, started a new adventure through blogging and got to travel to Paris, Turkey and Florida. Here a few flashback photos of my 2013. I'm looking forward to 2014 and I plan on doing a lot more than I did in 2013! Here's to a new year with new possibilities and new dreams. I hope you all have a very happy and healthy 2014.

Keep Stylin'

Blogmas Day 24: Christmas Eve and Last Day of Blogmas!

So today is Christmas Eve meaning it's the last day of Blogmas (tear!). I hope you enjoyed the series! It was definitely a challenge at times but I loved blogging everyday and will definitely start blogging  more from  now on. Let me know what kind of posts you'd like.

Myself and Kevin always give our presents to each other on Christmas Eve so we've just finished doing that. I absolutely LOVE them (blog post coming soon!). He's definitely out-done himself this year! 

I've also baked shortbread biscuits today in preparation for tomorrow's feasts!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas :) Thanks for reading my blog posts throughout blogmas and thanks to all my new followers :)

1 Day til Christmas :)

Keep Stylin' and be Festive!

Blogmas Day 23: Get Ready With Me-Casual Night Out!

Tonight myself and Kevin went to another panto take-off in town which was pretty terrible but anyway! I took some pics of me getting ready that I thought I'd share with you. If you have any questions let me know. Also, let me know what kind of posts you like coz I'm definitely going to blog more in the new year.

Make Up

Step 1: No Make Up!
So obviously before you put make up on you have to have none on :P

Step 2: Moisturise!
For this I used the Aldi beauty cream mentioned in a previous blog post that you can view here! I just dotted it over my face and blended it in until it was gone. This doesn't take long to dry too which is a plus.

Step 3: Foundation, Concealer and Eyeshadow Primer!
I blended two types of foundation here to get the perfect colour. The lightest colour is Rimmel Match Perfection in 201 Classic Beige and the darker colour is Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour in 201 Classic Beige. I blended these together and used my Real Techniques Expert Face brush to apply it. Then I used my Collection concealer in 4 Deep on any blemishes and used my foundation brush to blend it in to my skin. Then I applied Essence's I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base to ensure my eyeshadow would stay on for longer. I love this product! Then I used my Rimmel Stay Matte powder in 006 Warm Beige to help set my foundation.

Step 5: Eyeshadow!
I used the Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay for tonight's look. I applied the colour Tease all over the lid first. Then I used Busted in the outer corner and blended it into the crease using a clean fluffy brush. Then I used Half Baked very lightly all over the lid and blended it all out to get rid of any harsh lines. Then I applied some Benefit They're Real Mascara which I did a whole review on here!

Step 6: Eyebrows!
I used my Wet n Wild Eyebrow Pencil to outline the shape of my eyebrows. I very lightly traced around the outline of my eyebrows. Then using my Catrice Eyebrow Kit, I filled in the rest of my eyebrows.

Step 7: Contour, Blush and Bronzer!
I used my Sleek Contour Kit in Light to contour my cheek bones. Then I used NYC Cheek Glow Blush in 652 West Side Wine. I then finished the look off with a little bit of Essence's Sun Club Brunettes Bronzer in 02 Sunny.


Step 1: Clean Hair!
Ok so I just washed my hair and let it air dry for about an hour before I took it out of the bun.

Step 2: Hair Products!
Before I brushed my hair, I used the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner, Avon's Advance Techniques Anti-Breakage Spray and then finally Tresemme's Salon Silk No Frizz Serum.

Step 3: Brush!
I used my tangle teaser to brush my hair to get rid of any knots and make my hair nice and smooth.

Step 4: Dry!
I blow dried my hair upside down to get  more volume. I also continuously brushed my hair while drying it to avoid frizz. 

Final Touches!

To finish off my look, I put on my outfit, ran my GHD over my hair to get it smooth and silky and added some Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in 107.

Hope you guys liked this post. Please let me know what you thought of it and if you'd like me to do more.

2 Days til Christmas :)

Blogmas Day 21: Glow Celebration in Cork!

Myself and Kevin went into town this evening to see the Glow celebration. Bishop Lucey Park was all decorated in a Christmas/Fairy type them "Tir na Nollaig". It was lovely to stroll through the park and see all the lights and the decorations. It was lovely! Then we headed out to a mini market type thing with a few food stalls. I got a Crepe with Nutella and it was lovely! Thought I'd share a few pics with you! Have you been? Let me know!

4 Days til Christmas :) (so close!)

Keep Stylin' and be Festive!
