'Love Life' Update


Hey all,


Sorry I haven't been on this in a LONG time :( I have been very busy with college work as it is getting nearer to exam time and I have had a lot of assignments to hand up. Along with this, me and my (ex)boyfriend of nearly four years 'mutually' split on Tuesday 23rd March. I am quite hurt by it because we had a lot of firsts together.... first boyfriend/girlfriend, first kiss, first most things couples do!!


 It is heartbreaking to think I can't cuddle or kiss someone when I want or tell someone how much they mean to me and hear it back, but we are going to try to be friends and hopefully once this hard and awkward period has passed then we will be proper friends! Until then its going to be very difficult.


If anyone has gone through this or if anyone at all would like to leave words of wisdom/experience share your story/comment below please!




Lots of Love
xoxo

Update (2012): We are no longer friends, no contact whatsoever, we don't even say hi in public! It is for the best as it was too awkward trying to create a friendship on top of a broken relationship that never began with a friendship!!

FOTD + OOTD

Saturdays Look :) - I went to the cinema to see Shutter Island with my 2 friends Alina and Annmarie. It was a good but mind twisting and confusing movie!! It could so happen in real life!

So I had UD's honey on my lids with black liquid liner and Maybellines Falsies :)

I love this t-shirt! Its so cute :) And I finally get to wear the flower hairband and it looks great with my new hair cut :D
Lots of Love xoxo

YAY!

UPDATE :)

Hey Beauties
This weekend was an overall success :) I got some college assignements done (YAY) and its mother day today! :D So, I gave my mom a facial as her gift and she loved it :) That was a success! Also friday I got my hair done (about time) and bought myself a new 17 blusher :)


I got the china pink blusher :) The colour is quite pink so I must be very light in applying this :) When I swatched there blushes in store my friend suggested this one would be best because the pigment was light in all of them!

*POSE ALERT*
I got my hair lightened and got my highlights done and got shorter layers and my side fringe done properly :) My friend Sinead should be VERY proud haha.

This image shoes the layers quite well :)


My roots are done YAY and there not nasty :) hehe
Lots of Love xoxo

Paddys Day Makeup Ideas

♥♥ Paddys Day Makeup Idea ♥♥


When I think of St Patricks Day I think about Ireland, green, shamrocks, drink and craziness :D I always think creativity is a must when it comes to paddys day... for underagers who can't drink and for those going out getting "flamed" (drunk).... this is an important factor when looking to have some good craic! :) I used my urban decay palette to create this look. I used graffiti (green) and honey (gold). And rimmels solo shadows in white! I free hand drew the shamrock and applyed barry M marshmallow lipstick. I am wearing rimmel 16 hr lasting finish foundation.





I was feeling a bit over creative with the shamrock :P

My necklace storage!

This was my necklace storage, I was hanging my long chains on my wardrobe door with a hook and the door knob!! So I went out and got 2 more hooks to seperate my jewellary more.

These are the hooks.... there really handy because they can be removed off any surface and re-put up on another surface because it has spare sticky things! :)

I hope this helps anyone who was wondering what to do with there jewellary! It helps keep necklaces from tangling.

Lots of Love xoxo

OOTD (x2)

I have decided to do 2 OOTD posts in one... instead of doing 2 seperate ones :)

In the first picture I wore this today! Its just very comfy outfit... "the camera loves me" logo t-shirt, plain white tank and grey tracky pants all from dunnes and white runners from primark.



This was my OOTD for Monday. I wore jeggings, black and white striped long top (from dunnes) and white runners from Primark.

I know its nothing flashy but its me :)

I really like the shape of this top.... it is long and has a sinched in waste so would looke very cute with a belt and denim shorts :)

Random Ins & Outs

♥In & Out♥


In:

♥ Sky blue with soft white fluffy clouds:

I love looking out the window on a lovely summers day and just seeing the sky lit up all light blue in colour with some soft white clouds :) OR laying out in the grass looking up at the sky just breathing and not thinking, or worrying, or.... nothing, nothing but the blue sky and the green grass!

♥ Chinese Bulldogs:

I think these are the cutest dogs since I saw them in the anti-wrinkle advert! When the actress pulls out the dogs cheeks to show how the cream can make you go from wrinkly to not wrinkly... haha. The dogs are SO cute and I love them! :) I think its is funny how they walk!

Flat stomachs:

I would love to have a stomach like the one in this picture. I would like to wear a pair of jeans and not have rolls of skin overflowing the top of the jeans. I would like to be able to wear clothes and not have to worry about EVERY single little thing.... like is my stomach/legs/arms/boobs/ass/hair/makeup ok? I'd rather just worry about my boobs and makeup and not have that many things to look out for when buying clothes. I am the biggest girl in my group of pals and it can be so depressing at times.... I might have clear skin and a pretty face but I want a body too!

♥ Facials:

I normally get a facial once a week free in college as I am doing a joint course with beauty salon recpetionists and they need models so I get a facial + massage done every week :) I love having my skin deep cleaned and feeling soft and looking glowy! I love the relaxation of it and just getting to lie there and do absolutely nothing for 2 hours :)

Out:

♥ Alzeihmers:

Alzeihmers is a brain disorder very close to my family. My dad's grandmother had it, my nan's two older sisters had it and died from it and now my gran has it...! It affects the whole family in so many ways. She came to our house today for dinner.... she is in a very bad stage... it has come to the stage where she can't remember anyones name and she doesn't let people into her house even if... at one time, she'd know them. My uncle is her primary carer... my dad and his brother's, my uncles, do everything they can to help her have an easy life. They cook her dinner, take her shopping and to the doctors. When she gets frustrated she lashes out... physically. It is emotionally draining. She tried to talk to me today but couldn't eve piece together a sentence so I smiled and walked away - so she wouldnt see the hurt in my face! Alzeihmers is AWFUL and I would never want to live with it. It would hurt everyone I love... and to hear people laugh and joke about alzeihmers and dementia is heartbreaking because they obviously don't know the full on effects. AND what makes it that bit harder was I wrote to Alzheimers Ireland when she first got "diagnosed" and they said they'd send an information kit.... where is the mysterious kit? Not here thats for sure!!

♥ Dry Skin:

OMG my skin is getting so bad lately :( Its getting dry in patchs... I haven't moisturized more in my life than I have been the past few months and my skin seems to be getting dryer? Anyone know why this is? Or have any advise for me?



♥ Flabbiness:

I hate when summer comes along and the shorts/skirts/string tops and dresses come out... because it means my flabby belly and jiggly arms come out... :( Theres no top or dress that would hide my extra jiggly arm or suck in my tum! I want to have a nice toned body but can't afford a gym membership and I can't get myself to get out there for walks... I feel like people will be judging me and looking at me but then again with my weight I feel that anyway when I walk out the door.... grrr I hate so much being f*t!! :(


I know nobody likes hearing someone go on about how discusting they feel or how unattractive they are but I can't help it... I just needed a good ramble about how I was feeling and felt my blog was the perfect outlet for my feelings without being judged!! Everyone has those days!!

Lots of Love xoxo

Night Out: Tinchy Stryder in Savoy

Hey Everyone :)


On Friday, I went to the Savoy and saw Tinchy Stryder :D For those of you who don't know who he is, he is a rapper singer from the UK! :) I was ment to see him in oxegen with Ashleigh and Alina but he walked off stage because it was too crowded in the tent... WTF!! So when I saw he was coming to Cork we defo had to go... but Alina was in amsterdam celebrating her 18th so me and Ashleigh went anyway.
I got my top/dress at New Look... its so cute and has an open back with black bows up it :)

Posing for pics, drinking a few before we head out.

Tinchy performing in his S.I.T.H. tshirt! :)
A newcomer to the music world taking his top off :)

YUM, he is definately savage in person! This is another random rapper on stage haha

TINCHY.......

Do you think I could be a model? haha
This wall was made fully of carlsberg bottles (full!)

SHH!... Posing more...

check out the tash :P

Tash some more..! :)
We had an unreal night, very good. We were chatting with the barman who thought we were buying too many drinks. And we kept passing the bouncer with the red rope going from the "adult area" to the area by the stage! He was very happy about us chatting with him and we said sorry for walking past him constantly and he was like "No problem gorgeous"... to me, yes I am bragging :P This NEVER happens me... I can tell ya I had a huge smile for the rest of the night haha. Ya, I do have a boyfriend but getting random compliments always brightens a girls night :)
Any Tinchy Stryder fans out there?

Lots of Love
xoxo
