A Piece of LUSHBLUSH21 in... December

Hey Everyone :)

I like...
Christmas time. Its my favourite time of year. Its great shopping, seeing the lights, spending time with family, presents, visiting family, spending time with loved ones, putting up the christmas tree and all the decorations and looking at all the houses lit up!

I don't like...
spending loads of money... money is spent on cards and presents and I don't have loads of money to go out drinking and out for meals with friends, and all the presents. I also hate thinking about all the people out there alone for christmas.

I want you to know...
That I wish everyone a merry christmas and 2010 blogging will be much more frequent and better! I will have my own camera and laptop to work from. YAY!

I've planned...
a christmas dinner for me and my girlfriends to have dinner and exchange secret santa gifts. I have also planned for my boyfriends family to come to my house christmas eve for dinner and some socialising. Also I have planned to relax and enjoy christmas day. And I am currently thinking up some new years resolutions that I can stick to!

I want to say to someone special...
I love you very much and I hope you enjoy christmas with your nearest and dearest for many years to come. Love you bean xoxo

Lots of Love xoxo

FOTD + Update

Hey Everyone :)

I just read on cheryl's blog that MAC have a new VIVA GLAM line coming out in February with CIndy Lauper and Lady Gaga!! How amazing is that? The colours on the promo ad are gorgeous... I can't wait to see the full collection. I saw a gorgeous earring set in Accessorize that I hope to get on tuesday... it had little pearl studs, pink rose studs and another pair of studs but I so can't remember what they were! Also, I saw my brother perform on stage in Hairspray the musical. Here in Ireland Transition Year is a "doss" year that gives students amazing opportunity to do and try things they would never do before. Like my brother for example, is a sports fanatic, he is football mad and I never thought he'd be on stage. He was in the black chorus. He was brilliant!
This is a picture of the cast... my brother is the DJ on the right side of the stage in the green stripe jumper!

Movie Review: Law Abiding Citizen

Hey Everyone :)


Its movie review time!! So I saw Law Abiding Citizen on Monday 30th November. I went to see it with my boyfriend on monday night. In the first five minutes it was gross and I wanted to leave. But I didnt. Dramatic I know but it is horrible! A lot of parts of the movie are gruesome but its a brilliant movie. I LOVED it. The storyline is sad but its based on what is really happening within corrupt law inforcement. I would recommend for everyone to go see it! The special effects are incredible, the scenes and overall make up of the movie is brilliant!


SPOILER: Gerard Butler gets naked and you get to see his hot toned ass, and his hot abs!! Oh Baby!!

Organisation, keeping my room the way I want it, when I'm wearing heavy eye make-up that it looks good and compliments my outfit...

Em to be honest I don't know. I used to always think a celebrity inspired me but it was more influence... like to act a certain way or dress a certain way! E.g. I love Coleen Rooney (wife of Wayne Rooney). And she wears amazing things and frills, so I went out and got some frilly tops!

20. A random thing... favourite line from a song/scene from a movie/quote from a book?

My favourite line from a song is "I got your emails you just dont get females now do you" in Cry Me Out by Pixie Lott... very quirky and funny. A scene from a movie in High School Musical 3 when Gabriella and Troy sing Can I have this dance? on the rooftop. My favourite quote from a book is...dont have one but when I find one I'll let you know.

I TAG everyone to do this!

The X Factor: Live Show 9

Hey Everyone :)

Its the SEMI-FINAL!! Its MICHAEL JACKSON/RANDOM week. OMG so nerve wracking! Its down to four acts now. Each act has to perform 2 songs. In the first round they have to sing a Michael Jackson song. In round 2 they get to sing a song of there choice.
So here we go... Round 1:
Olly Murs is first up tonight singing Can You Feel It. He started off kind of dodgy with the low singing, but he is singing amazingly. He pulled everything out of the bag tonight. This is make or break point. He, in my opinion, is definately in the final next week! Louis said he's amazing and did very well, Dannii said that was fantastic and he has the whole package, Cheryl said hes an entertainer and hopes he's in the final, Simon said he was confident and hes got the presence of a star.
Joe McElderry is singing She's Out Of My Life. He is such an amzing singer, his voice will definately carry him far, if he doesnt win he would definately get a contract. He's in the final, he's amazing. Louis said he's the most consistant in the comp, Dannii said he clocked up a superb performance, Simon said he's getting better and better and its one of the best versions of that song hes ever heard, Cheryl said it was pationate and emotional and he's amazing and she's very proud.

Stacey Soloman is singing The Way You Make Me Feel. Uh-Oh she started off VERY weak!! She should've got a better song! She could be gone this week :( NOOOOOOOOO!! She did a great performance though, she walked along chairs. Louis said he wasnt crazy about the song, Cheryl thought it was fantastic and shes a yummy mummy and she enjoyed it, Simon said it wasnt her and gimmicky and silly. Dannii said they did everything the judges wanted and shes explaining the movement and the change.

Danyl Johnson up last in Round 1 singing Man In The Mirror. That song is one of MJ's most famous and I don't think he did it justice. Dannii and Louis didnt really like it they sais the background was too distracting. Cheryl liked it and Simon said he was amazing.

Round 2:

Olly Murs singing We Can Work It Out by Stevie Wonder. He is amazing. He's got the vocals and he deserves a place in the final. He's missing his twin brothers wedding to be in the show tonight. Louis doesnt know if he'll get into the final, Cheryl and Dannii think hes great and want people to vote for him and Simon said he deserves to be in the final.

Joe McElderry singing Open Arms by Journey. He is amazing, he WILL be in the final, no doubt!! He is truelly amazing. He has such an easy listening voice. He will have a number one with his first song release. Dannii said he has got to be in the final. Simon said Cheryl made the right song choice and he is amazing, and he deserves to be in the final. And Cheryl said he is amazing and he is consistant. And Simon offered Joe's nan a job on noe of his shows haha.

Stacey Soloman singing Somewhere from West Side Story. She definately sounds much better in Round 2. She is "The Voice". Cheryl said she got goosebumps, Louis loved it, Simon said she's back in the game, Dannii said she's amazing and her performance was world class.
Danyl Johnson singing I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston. I just don't think he has a very listenable voice. Louis said he is amazing and has a great voice and he wants people to vote. Dannii said it was good but she didnt like it as much as round 1, Cheryl said hes shaking but liked it. Simon said he hasnt had fare criticism and deserves a place in the final. I just think he's 100% FAKE!!! And he's got a WEIRD wrinkly smile!
This brings me back to when Diana Vickers my favourite of 2008's X Factor was voted off in last years Semi-Final. Wouldn't it be lousy if Olly and Stacey were in the bottom 2? I think it could be Stacey and Danyl. In either case I really want Stacey to make it to the final!

CHRISTMAS WISH LIST

Hey Everyone :)

I just got back from shopping with my mom and unfortunately I won't be able to do a haul until after christmas because everything I got is for christmas day. I got make-up and perfumes and such.

But I'm going to do a christmas wish list of all the beauty things I want, and I will do another post on all the clothing I want. So here we go...
Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara - I've been wanting to try this since I first saw it come out. It's different because it vibrates and I'd love to see what its like compared to other mascaras.
MAC Lipstick in Creme De Nude - I don't have any MAC products (yet!) and a lot of bloggers and YT guru's like and use this lipstick so I want to try it for myself, plus it seems the best nude lipstick out there.
Benefit Celebutante - I love this little set. It has all the benefit goodies I want in miniture. Its great. It has: 2 Full-Finish Lipsticks in Lady's Choice and No Competition.
2 Velvet Eyeshadows in Leggy and Dandy Brandy.
Fluff Shadow/Talent Brush.
Dallas Bronzer.
Benetint.
High Beam.
Lip Gloss in I'm With The Band.

Miss Dior Cherie Perfume - I love this perfume, it smells lovely and the bottle is so so cute. It has a bow and pink fragrance... so girly.
Anna Sui Flite of Fancie Perfume - I love this perfume, it smells kind of strong but its nice, also it has a peacock, which reminds me of my nan who passed away almost 2 years ago.

Lots of Love xoxo
