Hey guys!

Yesterday myself and Kevin went to Nando's for dinner. It was my first time there and I was really excited to try it. Kevin got the Chicken Breast Fillet Burger with Chips and I got the 1/4 Chicken with Chips and Garlic Bread. I have to say it was AMAZING. I totally loved it and can't wait to go back again (hinting at Kevin for when we're in Dublin for the weekend!). Afterwards we went to the cinema to see Captain Phillips. It was a really good movie! I'd definitely recommend it. So that was how I spent my bank holiday Monday :) It was a good way to end the weekend :) Chat to you soon :)

October Updates!

Hey everyone!
Today's post is just a random update post! I've been so busy with college that I actually don't have time to do anything :( and working all weekend means I don't really have a social life :( anyway I headed out last week with a few of my college friends and it was a really good night. I haven't been out in AGES so it was good to get out and be somewhat sociable haha! I've also been doing some cheeky Ebay purchases (oops!) and have been on the hunt for a really nice, thick, winter cardigan (if anyone finds one please let me know!). I've been kind of disappointed in the range of clothes for A/W 13 so far and I really wanna update my wardrobe. I've also went on a random phone case splurge and bought far more cases than I actually need (Ebay is clearly my weakness!). I'm also graduating from college on Wednesday. It feels kind of weird because I went on to do a masters after my degree so it's not like it's the end. It'll be a nice day out and I'll definitely blog about. Check out my facebook page here to see regular updates and pics on the day and stuff. Talk to you guys soon!

Autumn Style!

Hey guys!

For today's post I thought I'd go through a few of my go-to outfits for autumn. So far I've just been wearing basics like skinny jeans, leggings and a few cute tracksuits. I also love wearing my converse or vans and some new Chelsea boots I just bought :) I found a few pics from Pinterest and online in general that I thought I'd share with you. These are just simple yet cute everyday outfits that are perfect for the autumn season. Let me know what you think :)

American Beauty Haul!

Hey everyone!

It actually feels like FOREVER since I last blogged (sorry!). Anyway since I got back from America, I was straight back to college and have had literally no time to do anything. I just started a masters and I've so much work to do so that's pretty much all I've been doing. Anyway enough with the excuses haha! Here's a few beauty items I picked up while I was on holidays in Florida. I literally had the best time ever there. It's such an amazing place and everyone's so friendly. I'll put up a random photo post soon so you can see what it was like.

I didn't get as much beauty products as I thought I was going to get. They had loads of the same brands we can get here in Ireland and I wanted to get some stuff that I can't get. Some stuff was more expensive than I was expecting so I just picked up a few cheaper products instead. Let me know what you think or if you've used any of these products before let me know how you got on with them.

Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer in 739 Ticket to Brazil
Everyone knows I love my bronzer! I haven't used this yet but initially when I bought it I thought it was going to be similar to the Essence one I normally use. It's quite pigmented but has a little bit of shimmer which I don't really like so I'm not sure if I'll use it much. I'll definitely use it during the summer though. I got this for $4.49 in Walgreens.

EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet
I've heard so much about this before I went and I couldn't wait to get it but to be honest it's not all that it's made out to be. It's kind of dry and doesn't really spread well onto the lips. It comes out clear which is good for just softening the lips but I don't find it very good for hydrating my lips. I got this for $4.29 in Walgreens.

Wet n Wild 80% Longer Lashes Waterproof Mascara in C143 Very Black
This mascara is actually quite good. I think it's really good for de-clumping your lashes and the smaller brush is perfect for the lower lash line. It was $3.49 in Walgreens.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Shock and Pink Punch
Everyone has literally been raving about these all summer so I was so excited to try them out. I got the pink shock colour as it's quite subtle but still adds a bit of colour. The pink punch is one of my favourite beauty purchases in a while. I love how it's a darker colour but still a lip balm. They taste amazing and make your lips so soft. These were $4.79 each in Walgreens.

Wet n Wild Lipstick in 502A Dark Pink Frost and 511B Nouveau Pink
Saw these lipsticks and debated whether or not I'd get them. Then I saw they were only $0.99 each in Walgreens and that made up my mind fairly quickly! I have loads of bright pink lipsticks and the Nouveau Pink one is pretty much the same as them all but maybe not as dark. The darker colour (Dark Pink Frost) is almost like a darker nude colour. It's quite shimmery and comes out quite light.

Elf Lip Stain in 22121 Pink Petal
I've heard a lot about lip stains but never actually bought one. I saw this one and figured I'd try it out. The texture is weird and it actually felt and tasted like I was drawing on my lips with a marker. The colour itself is actually a nice natural colour and it stays on for so long. It's a good base for a lighter lipstick or a clear lip balm or gloss. However, I found it really dried out my lips. I got it for only $2 in Target.

Elf Liquid Eyeliner in 4203 Black
I don't really use eyeliner that much but as this was only $1 in Target I figured I should just buy it. It's really easy to use, the brush is good and it really stays put which is great when you're out but not so great when you try and take it off haha!

NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colours Lipstick in 529 Thalia
Ok I am literally in love with this lipstick. It's so much nicer on than it looks. It's such a perfect day-time colour. It's a darker pinky nude colour and it's probably my favourite lipstick ever! I've practically worn it every day since I got it and so many people have admired it. It's a creamy texture and really pigmented. Loving it SO much. It was $3.99 in Target.

Wet n Wild Coloricon Blusher in 832E Heather Silk
This is such a pigmented blusher. It has a reddish tone to it that is actually a little dark so I only use a small bit of it. It comes with a little brush that's handy for travelling when you don't want to bring loads of brushes. It was $2 in Walgreens.

Conair 1¼ inch Curling Iron
I've always wanted a medium sized barrel in a curler and when I saw this I knew it'd be perfect. You get bigger, loose curls which was exactly what I wanted. It has different heat settings and heats up really quick. It was $20.99 in Walgreens.

Ok so that's all for my American beauty haul! I hope you enjoyed reading it! Let me know what you think of the products or if you have any questions please let me know. Have another few posts planned so hopefully they'll be up soon!
