10 Things You Didn't Know About Me

Thanks so much to Marie for tagging me to do this post. You can check out Marie's blog here :) SO Marie has compiled a list of 10 questions to answer that you may not have already known about me! So here we go...

1. Where did you have your first kiss?
This is gonna be weird but pretty much behind a tree outside Kevin's house :P we were young :P I'm cringing just writing this :P

2. If you could pick a male celebrity to have a date with who would it be & why?
Niall Horan. I don't think I need to explain why :P haha!

3. What was your first car?
I don't drive so none :P my first family car (that I can remember of anyway!) was a navy Nissan Micra that literally looked like a  box!

Haven't done it yet :(

An open fire if someone else is going to clean it up :P can't beat chilling in front of a fire on a cold winter's night!

Skincare Haul

Hey guys!

I recently picked up a few skincare bits as my skin has not been on its best behaviour :P This week it's improving at least but it took its time :P I thought I'd share with you what I got anyway :) Don't forget to like my Facebook page and follow me on snapchat: rfairydustblog

I have been testing out the Bioderma Pore Refiner and I must say so far I'm absolutely loving it. I'll do a full review soon when I've been testing it out for longer. I haven't tried out any of the other Bioderma products yet. I've tried the Boots exfoliating face scrub and have been loving it so far! It also featured in my June Favourites video which will be up on my YouTube channel tomorrow.

                  Boots Tea Tree Witch Hazel Exfoliating Face Scrub        Boots Tea Tree Witch Hazel Face Mask

* Bioderma have kindly sent me these products, however there have been 
no ties for me to feature them on my blog. As always, all opinions are my own.

Gladiator Sandals | Current Trend

This summer's big shoe trend has definitely got to be the gladiator sandals. I had multiple pairs of these about 7 years ago and of course threw them out when they went out of fashion. Now that this trend is back, I'm left with none. So I've been searching online for a while now for the perfect pair and I thought I'd share with you a few of my fav. I am loving the tan knee high style ones! I think they'd be perfect with a white dress for summer! Let me know what your favs are!

Snap Happy

Hey everyone!

Today's post is all about snapchat. I've had my own personal one for a while now but I've noticed other bloggers and vloggers having one in relation to their blogs or vlogs. I've been thinking about setting one up for a while and eventually did the other day. Come add me and I'll add you back! I'll be posting anything blogging and vlogging related with Kevin also making the occasional appearance!

Wet n Wild Fergie Highlighter

Hey guys!

I bought this highlighter last year when we were in Florida and I've been loving it ever since. I have the shade Rose Champagne Glow.

I use this every day for a subtle highlighted glow. It's not too shimmery so I usually apply it over my blush and then add another more pigmented highlighter on the high points of my face. It's slightly tinted pink as well which gives a really subtle colour to your cheeks if you didn't want to wear blush. I haven't yet seen this in Ireland but if you do see it anywhere I definitely recommend picking it up.

Boots Botanics Radiance Balm

I finally gave into the hype and purchased the infamous radiance balm from Boots' Botanics range. Was it worth it? Oh ya!

I absolutely love this product. I apply it under my foundation and allow a few minutes for it to dry in. I've found that it really gives my face such a lovely, healthy glow. I've really noticed the difference it can make and I think it's great for making tired skin look much more awake! It really brightens up my face and I've found that the radiant glow lasts all day. It's super affordable and does last quite a long time. If you haven't already tried this product, you need to get your hands on it now! It's RRP is 7.99 but is usually on offer for 3.99.
