August Favourites!

Hola Fashionistas!

For today's post I'm going to talk to you about the things I've been loving throughout the month of August. Let me know what your favourites have been and what you think of mine.

Essence Bronzer

I've mentioned this product SO much but it's because I absolutely love it. I was on hols in July and I obviously got a tan so this bronzer was perfect to keep that glowing, tanned, sun-kissed looking skin.

Naked Palette

I've had this palette for a while now but I found myself using it a lot more this month. I took it on hols with me because the colours went with every outfit I wore yet I was still able to alternate between the colours and create different looks. With a mixture of matte and shimmer colours it's a perfect palette.

MAC Creme Cup Lipstick

Loved this colour throughout the month. I used it almost every day. It's the perfect pinky/nude colour that gives a subtle colour to your lip. Loving it.

MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

Another MAC lipstick I've been loving this month is this bright pink one. It's such a bright, bold colour that really makes your lips stand out. It stays on all night and doesn't dry out your lips.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I've only recently started using dry shampoo and God have I been missing out. As well as it being good for hiding your needs-to-be-washed hair, I find it really good for adding a bit of texture to hair that's just too sleek. Sometimes I find it hard to style my hair when it's just washed and it sometimes looks a bit lifeless. I find that using this just instantly takes away like sleekiness without taking away the shine.

Body Butter

Since I came back from Turkey, my skin has been quite dry and started to peel. I used this body butter to moisturise my skin and prevent peeling. It was super cheap and worked so well. Plus it smells like raspberries so you can't really say no to it!

Catrice Brow Kit

Again, I've mentioned this product a few times before but I've really loved it this month. I've used it every single day throughout August and it's really good for defining your eyebrows. I use it mainly during the day taking barely any product on the brush so it's not too heavy. It's perfect for a night time look though. I love how it makes your brows really defined and dark.


I've been on Pinterest for over a year now but this month I found myself using it way more. Since I set up my blog's Facebook page, I've been turning to Pinterest for some style inspiration and I just think it's a fab app. Anyone that doesn't have it needs to get it and anyone that does have it can follow me here!

That's all my favourites for this month hope you enjoyed them. Share your favs with me I'd love to hear them!

Airport Outfits!

Hey guys! For today's post I thought I'd talk about the outfits I think are perfect for travelling in. So I'm going on holiday number two to Florida on Saturday and I'm so excited! I obviously want something that looks nice but considering I'll be on a plane for 9 hours I think I need to be a bit sensible (boring!) and be a little more practical with my clothing. But being comfortable can also be stylish!

When I went to Turkey I wore a black maxi which was great but really tight at the end so not very good for carrying tonnes of suitcases around (and that's where Kev will come in handy for Florida!). So I've opted out of wearing the maxi but I'm still a little undecided as to what I'll wear. Jeans can be too tight but a dress is too much. I have some serious fashion issues right now! So I've been looking around and here's what I've come up with. 

What do you wear travelling? Do you have a go-to outfit? Let me know! I won't be blogging until I come back but check out my Facebook page here to get updates from when I'm away! Chat soon!

Fav Holiday Beauty Products!

Ok so I know I'm a little late with this post but it's still summer and since I'm going on another holiday in two weeks I thought I'd share my holiday beauty favourites with you. These products are what I used most when on holidays in Turkey and will definitely be bringing them to America with me. 

Body Butter
I used this body butter every night after my shower to make sure my skin stayed hydrated and I wouldn't peel the second I set foot on Irish soil. It was really cheap and got it in my local supermarket. It smells amazing and drys in pretty quick.

Ok I think it's safe to say now that anyone who has been reading my blog knows I love my bronzer. Well I loved it even more on hols. It's such a perfect beauty essential to keep in your handbag on hols. You can literally apply it all over your face and not even bother to use a foundation. It's really light on your skin and it gives such a glowing complexion that I love. A definite beauty must.

I love a bright lip on holidays but this year I chose to bring only two lipsticks; a bright colour (girl about town) and a nude (creme cup). I actually ended up wearing the nude colour a lot more than I thought I would have. These two colours would go with any outfit so they were the perfect ones to bring. Really loving Mac lipsticks they stay on for hours!

Naked Palette
I wanted to keep my eye look simple and easy on holidays so I thought my Naked Palette by Urban Decay would be perfect. I chose to bring that one over the second palette because there's a mix of matte and shimmer colours. It was a perfect palette to bring as you can still keep a natural look but it can be altered so that you're not wearing the same look every night.

Lip Balm
This is perfect for during the day to keep your lips moisturised and hydrated. I got this one as a present from Kevin and OMG it smells amazing! I wore it a lot on hols (so much that it ended up melting oops!). 

Lacura Beauty Care Cream
Love this product. I tend to use it after the shower almost as a face moisturiser right before I put on my make up. It's amazing for clearing up and blemishes and I love the fact it doesn't dry out your skin either.

Sun Cream
Obviously this is a complete holiday essential. Since I've already been in the sun, when I go to America I'm not going to need as high a factor starting off. I have an SPF 15 that I prob won't use (I might start with a 10 or an 8) and then I'm going to use a tanning oil towards the end. Please do not use oil if your skin is not used to the sun! It can be really dangerous plus the whole lobster look is way out of season.

Nail Polish
My last beauty essential has got to be a bright nail polish. Kevin got me this one after I spent months obsessing over it and I have to say I am still in love with it. It's a perfect summer colour and is probably my favourite nail polish I own.

Hope my holiday beauty favs are useful to you. Let me know what your holiday essentials are I'd love to hear them.

MUA Cosmetics Haul!

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts in July but I was super busy! I was away in Turkey on hols for two weeks so I apologise for not writing more. Today's post is going to be a MUA Cosmetics haul but before I begin I just want to mention two things. First is that I recently set up a Facebook page for my blog which you can view here! If you could like the page I'd be really grateful. I'll set up a link on my actual blog too which should make things easier. Secondly, I set up an email address for my blog which is! If you have any business enquiries, suggestions for blog posts or any other questions you can contact me on that. Now onto the haul!

So while I was on holidays I saw that MUA Cosmetics had a sale and a really good one at that! So I decided to have a look and picked up a few things. They are such an affordable make up brand with great quality products. I got everything for around €16 including €4.95 shipping.

Blusher-Shade 1

This blusher is a peachy/coral colour and is really pigmented. It might be a bit too light for my skin but I'm looking forward to tying it out. It was only £1.00 and can be bought here!


This blusher is super pigmented. It's a real bright pink colour that I love. Although it's small, I can see it lasting a while because it's so pigmented you don't need to use too much of it. It was £1.00 and can be found here!

Shimmer Kiss Bronzer-Bronzed Shimmer Kisses

I haven't tried this out yet but I'm really looking forward to using it. I normally don't like shimmery bronzers but I'm going to use this as a highlighter which I think would look perfect with a tan. I think a little bit on the cheek bones and maybe even the collar bones will go a long way to get that perfect glowing looking skin. It was £1.50 and can be purchased from here!

Bronzer-Shade 2

I'm really reluctant to buy other bronzers because I love Essence's so much but for £0.50 I figured I couldn't go wrong. I love bronzer so this is a little small for me but I think I'm going to use it for contouring. It comes in different shades and again is very pigmented. It can be picked up from here!

Lipstick-Shade 4

These lipsticks are fab for only £1.00. They have a cute little lip balm that screws into the bottom of the lipstick which is perfect for keeping your lips hydrated. The lipstick is a sheer colour and almost feels like a lip balm. Although in the picture it looks really pink, on the lips it comes out almost clear. It can be found here!

Lipstick-Shade 6

The colour is really subtle and a perfect day time colour. It's a slight pink colour and isn't as dark as it looks in the picture. Again it has the lip balm at the bottom and is really hydrating. It was £1.00 and can be found here!

Fashionista Double Take Lipstick-Shade 4 Raspberry

This colour is a dark pink and is perfect for summer. I love the texture and the quality is really good. The colour again is a perfect subtle colour which is ideal for a day time look. It was £1.50 and can be bought from here!

Fashionista Double Take Lipstick-Shade 10 Ultra Pink

This is probably my favourite lip colour that I bought from MUA Cosmetics. It's a real vibrant pink colour that is a perfect colour for a dramatic night time look. I love bright pink lips and I will definitely be using this a lot. Again it was £1.50 and can be found here!

That's all my MUA Cosmetics purchases (for now anyway!). I hope you liked them! If you have any questions or suggestions for future posts please let me now :) I promise August will be a better month for blogging! Chat soon!
