Xmas WishList 1: Urban Decay Palette

Hey Dolls,

So I was strolling through Debenhams last Saturday while I was doing some Christmas shopping and as I was walking past the Urban Decay stand and saw this Book of Shadows Volume 3 palette and instantly fell in love, the pop up art is so eye catching and also the overall detailing and design is really cool. The shadow colours are really nice too... my favourite would have to be Midnight Cowboys Ride Again, Bordello and Psychedelic Sister.


I'm hoping to get this palette for Christmas :) Along with some Benefit products (I usually stock up around this time of year - my mom's birthday) :D

Lots of Love xoxo

A Surprise Birthday!!

Hey dolls! OMG planning a surprise birthday is so stressful! Last night I attended and mainly
planned one of my closest friends, Salome, 21st birthday party.

So I found out about 24 hours before the party that nothing was planned because due
to unnecessary stuff I ended up pulling out of the planning originally, so I had to sort the cake and decorations on the day of the party. I got my good friend Rose to help me out in the shopping and other party sorting tasks. So I started drinking and got ready at Rose's apartment, we were due to set up the decorations at 7.30, people were due at the venue at 8pm. So I didn't arrive til 9 with the decorations because I was so stressed out getting ready I needed to drink and calm down for 5 minutes!

Once there I started putting up the decorations and by 9.30 there was 7 people there :O So I was getting the place set up and it was sorted so I got a drink at the bar and sat waiting for the birthday girl... more of our friends showed up so there was a good crowd
there by the time the birthday girl came at 10 :D
When Salome first showed up she was so surprised and happy she started to cry! It was so cute and really made all the stress I went through worth the joy she had on her face! She was really surprised.... there was loads of opportunities for her to cop on because some people slipped but she never did!!

This is when me and Rose first saw her at the party and she thanked us for the effort and was telling us how surprised she was and happy.

This is me with Salome and her mom :) I invited her mom 24 hours beforehand too. Everything was badly organised but it all went fairly smoothly as the night went on. Her mom noticed how stressed out I was. She thanked me for planning and sorting everything, which was nice of her :)
Cake time!! Yummy, I got her a chocolate cake from Tesco! I lit some 2.1. candles and we sang happy birthday and she wasn't expecting a cake but she got a yummy one :D (I look Spanish with the red flower in my hair haha)

The night went down well and after the pub we moved onto a club and shook some bootay :D It was a good night and we had loadsa fun!

So don't overplan but organise timing better is my main lesso learned from this experience :)

My new brand love: Lipsy

I love Lipsy! All there dresses are stunning and can be for any occasion. They have savage shoes, gorgeous dresses, lovely jewellery, cute velour tracksuits and of course all different types of bags.
Beaded Pocket Bustier Dress - My BFF wore this dress to my 21st birthday, another friend of mine wore this to her 21st and Snooki from MTV Jersey Shores also wore this dress.
Strapless Oversized Animal Print Dress - this dress is gorgeous and part of the Pixie Lott for Lipsy range.






Pleated Strapless Dress - This dress is gorgeous, the print is described as kryptonite print. The colours are bright and make the dress pop. The fitting of this dress is very flattering for body shapes that have or are lacking curves.

Ruched Lace Strappy Dress - I really like this dress. I like the way its body fitting, I like the ruched side and the overall style.

2 in 1 Necklace Beaded Corsage Dress - I really like this Lipsy dress because its like a skirt and top, but its all one. The skirt is tight and fitted ad the top is loose with some detail.


Bandeau Chiffon Layered Dress - I saw this dress in Cosmopolitan UK magazine and fell in love with it (without the belt). The dress was picked to help recreate the look of Leighton Meester on the cover. I love the look :)

Animal Ruched Dress - I love this animal print and the style of the dress. Its well put together and the animal print is gorgeous! This dress would be gorgeous with long curly hair, a tan, brown eyeshadows and a brown lipgloss with extreme lashes! :) (then again I'd do this with all these dresses hehe)

Birthday nights out since my birthday! :P

Ann's 21st :)







Una's 19th :)




Lots of Love xoxo

My 21st!!

Hey everyone!

What an event my 21st was :O The day began good, then unlucky and then funny, then...!! Ok, so starting off I had 3 of my friends stay over the night before the party so we woke up and had a chillaxed morning! :)

Me and Salome went to collect the balloons with my sister and they had the wrong order done up so gave me a free bunch of balloons! And then I got a huge 2 and 1 balloons and walked out of the shop and the 1 blew away! So with all this time going by I was building up a sweat from panic and rushing!

This is me and Salome before we started getting ready, we just sat on the bed moisturising our legs and me sipping on some red bull :D

TAN TIME!! haha Ok so I started to do my tan and used a hand mitt with Sally Hansen in medium all over my legs, arms, back and chest.

And We're ready!! :D AnnMarie, Sharon, me, Salome and Ger got our drink on :D Ger called oer at 8pm so we could drink some Mojito's and alcopop's. We finally got to the venue and had everything set up by 9 when people started to arrive!


This is me n my guy BFF Mark. Got the yellow badge from my sis, and the "birthday girl" tiara and sash from my friend Sinead as part of my present :)
This is me and Jen, we were in primary school together and managed to end up back in school together 6 years later :) crazy! :) haha.
This is me and my BFF Sharon all smiles after a few drinks :D
We had some night! Once we hit the club Salome went missing for 2 and half hours and passed out in the bathroom of the club! :P Some dramatic but funny night :D
Lots of Love xoxo

Ups and Downs of recent times :) xx

Hey Dolls,

This is my ups and downs for recent times :)


Too Faced Naked Eye Palette:
I love this palette. I got it from my sister who recently got back from Orlando and New York. I got an email from Sephora about this new palette and emailed her to see if she could get it. At the time it wasn't even on the shop floor :)

I love each of the three looks that the cards show... classic, day and fashion :) There really pretty looks. I've tried each of them.







Angel Porrino (Holly Madison's Assistant):

She is in Holly's World as Holly's assistant. She is absolutely stunning! I love her hair, the length and colour of it! I love her style, its very like Holly's with the denim skirt and knee high socks and cute tee's but I love it! Its so so cute.

This is a pic of her at her 21st birthday! She has a gorgeous smile and looks amazing. I am so jealous of her outfit... so cute! :)

She has a gorgeous body and is mom to one year old Roman.

She seems very down to earth and willing to help Holly Madison out with anything considering there BFF's.







NO BOYS!! :
Since splitting with my (ex)boyfriend of nearly four years I've had my ups and downs with guys. Been hurt three times (not seriously but a bruise to the ego), went a bit wild and went a bit boy-crazy. I've calmed down a bit now.
I decided to check out internet dating for 4 days and ended up meeting a friend off it - I wanted something more but it didn't work out so we're buds which is cool :)

(Update: This 'friend' is now my current boyfriend of almost 2 years ;))

So now I'm trying to stay off guys for a small bit and take time for myself... go to the gym, do my driving theory test and get on the road... things I want to do for just me!! :)


Lots of Love xoxo

Oxegen 2010

Hey Dolls!

I was at Oxegen again this year. AMAZING isn't the word to describe it really. I saw so many groups and had so much fun with the friends that came with me! We all got along and had loads of drink... despite the bad weather we had a blast! :)
This is AnnMarie, me, Ashleigh, Sorcha and Salome looking stylish drinking before we hit the main Arena for the bands of the day. We had a laugh and thats the "Love Shack" tent in the background :) - which unfortunately didn't make it through the bad weather so came home but won't be used again :(
This is the lads Edward, Eoin, David and Ger (except Mark) posing for D12! We went to oxegen with these lads last year too.
This is a picture of me and all the lads. Looking stylish in my polka dot socks and hand print on my ass (smudged). This was the last day of gigs. We had some fun sitting out in the sun :)
I saw bands like 3oh!3, Eminem, Plan B, Republic of Loose, David Guetta, Jay Z, Dizzie Rascal, Bell X1, Kasabian, Goldfrapp, Gossip, Florence and the Machine, Paolo Nutini, Tinie Tempah, Darwin Deez and I also saw part of the World Cup Final on a huge outdoor screen :D

My hair! Grrr!

Hey girlies,

Ok, so lately my hair HATES me! haha. I've tried everything to untangle my hair, I've even used more conditioner in the shower but no matter what my hair always tangles and goes into bumps when I try to tie it up. I don't want to have to straighten my hair after every shower so I really want a solution to having smoother sleeker hair. I've used leave in conditioners, hair milks, and even VO5's hot oil to re boost some of the natural shine and condition to it. But no... my hair just doesn't want to like anything. I think my fault was washing my hair with the garden hose a few weeks back... I was desperate because I was going out that night and needed to wash my locks but the electricity happened to be off for the whole day :( Grr... so now I need help! Any suggestions? Oh and I've tried brushing it... it makes me cry it hurts so much... I'm like a child haha.

And also as you may see from my blog pic that I now have a fringe? Worst idea for me ever!!!! haha. I tried to re cut it n ended up with a sidewards fringe, AND it NEVER stays straight! :( Oh how can I get my normal side fringe back!! :O

Thanks babes xx

My week of nights out... FOTN

*Nights Out*
In the past week I've been out 3 nights, which is kind of unusual for me as I normally don't go out drinking that much in one week!


So in this first pic is me and my bessie Salome. In the past couple of months she decided to start wearing full face make-up. And the revlon foundation she uses makes her face look white or powdered in pictures!
This is me on a night out with two girls from college on Thursday. This is me and Aoife in Suas. First time in a long time I've gone out with crimped hair.
This was Saturday night out for my friend Niamhs 20th birthday. I really like my makeup that I wore that night :D


This was the first week in a long time I didn't wear black smokey eye makeup!! :O haha
Lots of love xoxo

Summer Wish List :)

Hey Dolls,

I decided to post a summer wish list of all the new and existing products that I wanted to try :) So here goes:

First up is: Bourjois:
Healthy Mix Foundation - I really want to try this moisture boosting foundation as it would really waken up my look and make my skin look brighter to break up my usual makeup routine :)
Volume Clubbing Waterproof - I am going to Oxegen this summer and need waterproof mascara that lasts through the rain and will make my lashes look amazing so I want to try this to see if it gives the effect I want :)
Gloss Menthol - I really want to try this as a cheaper alternative to Benefit's California Kissin'. I really liked the minty taste and smell and also liked the fact that my teeth did look whiter without my lips looking blue :)

Next up is: No.7 @ Boots:
Intense Volume Mascara - I love volumising my lashes :D

Next: Rimmel:
1, 2, 3 Looks Mascara - This looks soooo cool I really want to try it :D
Glam Eyes Mono Eye Shadow - I want this in Precious Rose :) It looks sooo pretty.
Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer - its a concealer and highlighter :D Sounds like my kinda product :)

Next: Collection 2000:
Shimmer and Shade Blush - this is sooo pretty :) Love the flower detail :)

Next: 17 @ Boots:
Candy Collection Nail Polish - I love the shades! :D

Thats all for now :) There is a lot more which I will create in a new list soon xx

Next: Revlon:
Matte Lipstick - In Nude Attitude and Pink Pout :)

Update

Hey dolls :)

OMG I can't believe how long its been since I did I post :( And I am so sorry to my followers for not posting regularly lately. My past few weeks have been mad busy with college finishing up and exams. I have one exam left so I am delighted to say I can post a lot more regularly now :)

So my update isn't much... I have just finished 4/5 of my exams and all went well so I am hoping that I got distinctions (highest grade) :) I have spent the past week living with my friend as she lives with her nan and her nan went on holidays so I stayed with her. We had a good week of lounging around n nights out. I was out Saturday for her birthday (pics below). It was a good night out.

Another thing is I got a fringe :O I haven't had a full fringe since I was 2!! So basically never haha. Comment below and let me know what you think :)
Me with my new hair :)
Group pic :)
Me and Ashleigh
