B. Cheeky Blush in Golden Peach – A bronzed glow for Winter!

IMG_6838B.Cheeky Blush is something I picked up ages ago in Superdrug. I am a big fan of B. products having tried a few of their product and I wanted to try their blush because it looks exactly like the shade I needed to perk up my skin. The shade I picked up was Golden Peach which is a bit of bizarre buy seeing as it’s winter! But it’s actually a welcome addition to the makeup stash because it’s adds a bit of colour and warmth to my cheeks. Depending on your own personal taste, it’s easy to build up the colour. In the photo below you can see I’ve layered it up a bit. During the day, I keep it much lighter and it really makes a nice subtle healthy shade. Continue reading

Updated Shower Routine!

IMG_6793I’m not very loyal when it comes to products I use in the shower. I chop and change like you wouldn’t believe and I use two different sets of products, one for my home and one set for when I go swimming. In my home, I like to use my more luxurious or expensive products  mainly because I don’t want them to spill or leave them behind when swimming. I am a bit of a featherhead sometimes. Only last week I left my swimsuit and hat behind!

The Daily Face #4

IMG_6781

It’s been a long time since I did a face of the day post. I really like reading these posts on other people’s blogs so I thought I’d get back into the swing of things. Who doesn’t love an aul vain selfie photo anyway?! *nervous laugh*  The products I used were so simple to use and the look took less than five minutes. The L’oreal Eau De Teint foundation (shade porcelain) is an ABSOLUTE dream to use. I swear to god it’s fabulous and even though my skin is a tad dryer at the minute, it still applies pretty well. Another product that’s pimpsy to use is Bourjois’ cream blusher in 002. It’s a subtle peach shade that can be used lightly or built up to create a deeper blush. On the eyes, is Clinique’s eyeshadow quad and a brown superfine eyebrow pencil. Strawberry fudge and teddy bear are two of my all time favourite eyeshadows. They compliment each other so well. Andrea from Your Beauty is a huge fan of Clinique’s eyeshadows! Continue reading

Weleda Iris Hydrating Day & Night Cream: A Medicore Review.

IMG_6743You know when you just want to be wowed by a product? You want it to be excellent and a game changer in terms of skincare? Then, you get the product and find it’s mediocre. It does the job but doesn’t go beyond that. You feel disappointment but also understand that skincare products are not always miracle-workers. Often change comes from the inside out. Anyway, this is the feeling I’ve gathered from Weleda’s Iris day and night cream. Continue reading

Alternative Halloween Horror Film Picks

I’m just going to steer your attention to a couple of films that you may or may not have heard of but are worth your while watching this Halloween. Those of you looking for loads of jumps and scares (what Mark Kermode calls Cattle Prod Cinema) may be a little disappointed while watching this selection, they fall more into the suspense/dread psychological horror category.

It’s a Tiger Haul!!

Continuing on from my post yesterday on the newly opened Tiger Stores in Dublin, I thought I would show you all a few of my purchases from the store. I took not one but two trips to Tiger in two days and I’m so tempted to head back in again but I need to stop while I’m still ahead! I mentioned before what a delight the store in terms of products, value and customer experience. If you want to see what the lovely Rachel got in her Tiger Haul then head over to her blog A Pretty Obsession for a cute haul!

Music for the Weekend #12

It’s been a little while since I featured a Music for the Weekend playlist. I’ve had this playlist ready for a while now but I added on some new tunes from James Vincent McMorrow and Enrique Iglesias of all people! His song sounds like every other pop song possibly released. It’s gas really and I just had to include it cos it’s probably gonna be massive! Starting the playlist off is an atmospheric song from Chelsea Wolfe, the L.A. singer-songwriter. Everybody loves a little bit of electro-pop and Haerts produce that exact sound in their new EP Hemiplegia. The title track is featured. Anna Calvi is back on the scene (much to my delight) and her song A Kiss to Your Twin is featured also.

My obsession with Volcano Choir continues and I’ve featured an unreal remix of Comrade. I’m sure you have all heard of Hozier by now, god knows Today FM feature him enough (they always overplay new artists). With a voice that echoes James Blake, he is one to watch for the future. His track Take Me To Church is lovingly included below. The next three songs are nice-easy listening tunes from Boardwalk, Wild Leaves and Smalltown America. Hope you all enjoy the few songs and don’t forget to follow me on Soundcloud. Have a great weekend everyone!
