Don't miss me too much!

Hey dolls,

I had a few posts planned based on reviews and looks etc. (check out the list in the upcoming tab above). I went to the doctors on Tuesday last week because I haven't been feeling right for a while now :( - I won't go into TMI details!! But basically I did a pregnancy test (negative result - phew!!) and had to give blood for a test! So she tried taking blood from both my arms and neither worked!! At this stage I felt sick at the thought of needles in my arms :( then she was about to give up when she suggested taking bloods from my hand but it would be more painful than anywhere else!! So feeling brave and wanting to find out what is wrong with me she took two viles of blood from my right hand. She was talking to me about my problem and what it could be. In responding I felt like I was talking super slow!! And then I began to sweat a lot on my face and started to get super dizzy!! So she lay me on the bed and I fainted for what felt like a second!! So when all that drama was over I went home and have to wait until tomorrow for my results :(

And on top of that I now have bad throat and ear troubles :( my glands inmy throat are swollen, I have a layer of white stuff at the back of my throat and my ear is do sore as a result :( Grrr!! Why can't I just be healthy? :(

So I am still alive and on both legs so that's a good sign for now ;) next step sort out my current problem then lose weight so I canbe super healthy and not feel SO unhealthy :/ I seriously have never said 'I feel unhealthy!!' unless I was sick!!! But even though I am I feel my life is unhealthy!!

Need to take a step back, breath and analyse what's happening!!

I'm sorry I haven't blogged much this month :( I will. E back to myself soon and will do my posts soon :)

Thanks for understanding.

Lots of Love

My Valentine's Day xx

Hi dolls,

My valentine's started off pretty hectic! I woke up late so I had to rush out the front door... with big bushy hair and no make-up on... how attractive ;)

I knew my boyfriend had planned to collect me from work at 5pm when I finished but I have two work locations so I didn't know all day until 4pm where I would be :O (it changes quick).  I had butterfly's on my way downstairs in the elevator and couldn't hold in my smile.  Once the elevator doors opened I looked up and... he wasn't outside!! A little part of me sank because I thought maybe he went to the wrong place (he never collected me from work before). And so, I walked out the door and there he was :D Smiling, with a little hint of nervousness. He started unzipping his jacket and... pulled out a single red rose! :) It was my first real single rose I'd ever gotten... I was so delighted. I felt so happy! I gave him a big hug and we headed towards the car. We went to get our cinema tickets early and then went home to mine so I could get freshened up after work. I got changed, put on some make-up and straightened my hair. I wore a chunky knit cardigan, a white top with red flowers, black mini skirt, black tights and brown uggs.

Once I was ready, he came upstairs to me and gave me a card, a packet of 6 iced cakes with little hearts on and The Lady and The Tramp DVD :D I gave him his card and a me to you teddy that said 'I love you this much' with his arms open wide. After we read our cards we headed off to Blackpool where we got Eddie Rockets for dinner and then went to the cinema to see The Vow.

4 little chocolates... the yummiest EVER!

Starbucks hot choccy mug :)
I got myself some treats too ;) hehe

I loved the movie. I would definately give it a 9/10 and recommend it to all girls to grab some girlfriends and a box of tissues :P I would've cried twice but I had to hold it in... I forgot my waterproof mascara ;) If you saw this movie what did you think??

Lots of Love

I really really wanna go to Paris....

A new Olsen in town...

Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth is the younger sister of the more famously known Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley. Elizabeth, who was born in 1989, started acting at the young age of 4 (following in her sisters footsteps). 

Elizabeth started acting in movies again in 2011. And looks to be a rising star in 2012. I can't wait to see this stunning Olsen sister in some movies this year :)

It was my boyfriends mom's 50th party last night. We celebrated in the Charleville Park Hotel. There was a big turn out. It was great seeing his family again and meeting new people. We danced and drank the night away.

 What I wore:

  • Leopard print cross over dress from Awear (€40)
  • Turquoise clutch from Primark (€7)
  • Grey wedge  heels from New Look (€35)
  • Black tights from Primark
  • Sally Hansen Medium Glow Tan

Me and Daniel

 This is my FOTN but I will do a proper individual post with what I wore soon.

Candy Bar (DIY)
 This is a sweets bar that was put together by the birthday girl, Daniel's mom. She bought all the sweets and put the display together. It looks really professional and yummy!
Birthday Cake made by the Birthday girl!
 The cake look delicious! Unfortunately I didn't get a slice :( but I know it would taste good :D

Welcome February!!

Hey dolls,

This is my first post of february :D I'm so disappointed I didn't get this post up yesterday! :( I accidentally watermarked ALL my pictures "lushblush21@hotmail.com"... which is wrong! It's not even a link to anything :( Grr!! So I had to redo all the watermarks, cut out the old ones and silly me didn't back up the pictures so I had some amount of editing to do :(

So this post is about my most-used products of January!! :D I use a lot of drug store brands because they work for me and there not too expensive! I spend money on one good bit of makeup and then the rest of my makeup is average priced... that way I'll have gorgeous cheeks or flawless skin... or whatever.. You get my meaning (I hope!).

My most used products of January have been...

My most used products of January 2012

Carmex - this is a must have during cold wintery months. My lips get very dry and this helps boost some moisture back quickly.
Carmex Lip Balm

Eyebrow colour - I use the darkest shade for my eyebrows because it fills in my brows well and looks good. This is a rimmel quad palette. I use a clear mascara on my brows too to help set them so flyaways don't happen :P

Rimmel Quad Eyeshadow's, no. 02

Benefit Powder Time Lover - I use the bronzer, Hoola, to highlight my cheekbones. It helps add a strong cheekbone affect.

Benefit Powder Time Lover

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer - This month I've had some problem areas with my skin... so I've had to use this a bit. But I use it for under eye dark patchs and spot cover up. Its a must :D

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer - Medium
Liquid Liner - I don't use this EVERY day but I find myself using this one a lot... It's Rimmel Flash Eyeliner. You can see a swatch on my hand. It's so defined and has good pigment.
Rimmel Flash Eyeliner - Black
Lashes - Rimmel Lash Accelerator is my most used mascara in the past few weeks because it separates and extends my lashes! I've been asked am I wearing fake lashes or lash extensions... nope! All mine :D
Rimmel Lash Accelerator - Black Brown

Benefit Thrrrob Blush - This gives such a girly, light colour to my cheeks. Not too doll like. Since I got it a week ago I use it everyday :P

Benefit Thrrrob Blush
Foundations - Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is my go-to foundation these days. The colour is flawless, it gives my skin a healthy glow and looks so natural. I got this foundation about 3 weeks ago and always use it.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - 52 Vanilla
Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid is such a gorgeous foundation. It also looks so natural and flawless. It's a 'heavier' mix but it works just as well, probably with better cover-up than the Bourjois one (above). 
Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid - 010 Ivory
