Outfit Of The Day

Today I haven't done anything bar tidy my room, sort my magazines and listen to No Doubt! So not my thought has been put into how I look today.
I'm wearing my normal, everyday make-up, and excuse my eyebrows because I have no idea how to make them nice yet!
My outfit is a really lovely blouse with a flower-detailed collar that I got from a charity shop during summer and my skirt is from another charity shop, it originally finished just above my ankles so i got it cut to just above my knee.
I've tied my shirt at the bottom so I didn't have to tuck it in, I've never worn this out so I don't know if it's nice, haha, but it's nice to try something different!
My hat is my mother's and I parted my hair so you can't see my undercut.

Hope everyone's having a good day! :-)

Forgetting Completely About Blogspot! + Updates

Oh my GOD! I'd totally forogotten about this site for the last few weeks!!!
First I'd stopped posting because I've run out of inspiration for blog posts, which is never a good thing for a fashion and beauty "blogger". I'm hoping to get back into the run of things now, and possibly carry on with my youtube channel, I'm not sure yet.
During summer I went to England to visit my friend Megan, which was lovely, I met loads of lovely people who I miss hugely now but I'm planning on seeing them in February :-)

I also bleached my hair, oooops!
 Skeleton t-shirt - Topshop Sale. Light Blue High Waisted Levi Shorts - Vintage Shop in Brick Lane
I'm going shopping at the weekend so I will deffinitely put up a haul post then, I'm surprised all twelve of you are still here! Haha.

Oxegen 2011!

Oxegen was amazing, not going to lie, I miss it already! Had so much craic and everyone was so sound! I seen some amazing acts too, the highlights for me were;
  • Weezer
  • The Strokes
  • Swedish House Mafia
  • Example
  • Arctic Monkeys
  • Plan B
  • The Pretty Reckless
  • Coldplay
  • Pendulum
  • BeyoncĂ©
  • Jimmy Eat World
Even though seeing the bands was amazing, and I mean BEYOND BELIEF! I had such a laugh at the campsites, anyone who went for the three days but didn't camp seriously missed out on so much. Our neighbours were so lovely and we had a not so brilliant barbeque. Everyone got on so well and thank God, none of our stuff was stolen, except a tube of pringles belonging to my friend. I'm deffinitely going to go again next year if the line up's good.
I was excited about looking fesivalicious but that went out the window on the Friday morning when I was too tired and hungover to put any effort into my make up at all. The only thing I wore was mascara and eyeliner. Nobody really cared what anybody looked like anyway. My clothing was shorts for three of the days and a dress for one, I was so happy to be floating around in a dress and looking slightly stylish!
Below is a photo of  my friends, some random neighbours and I. Can you spot me?

Sorry For My Lack Of Posts!

When I set this blog up I was so excited about writing and blogging but I really can't think of anything to write about at the moment! I need some sort of motivation, so I'm going to try to find new blogs to follow and hopefully get some ideas.
Also, for the past four days I've been at Oxegen, Ireland's biggest music festival. I've been going on about it for what seems like forever so when I get this hangover out of the way and sleep a bit more you can expect a giant blog post about it asap. Thankfully i didn't spend ALL my money at Oxegen either, so I'm going to buy a small something with what I have left, I've only about €20!
I'm also a very proud winner of Viva Adonis' Cha Cha Tint giveaway! I'm so happy as I rarely win anthing and I've been eyeing Benifit's Cha Cha Tint for weeks now. As soon as it reaches me you can expect a review, I'm excited to use it as I never use anything on my cheeks. Thanks again girls!!

Oxegen Skin + Make-up Must Haves!

I'm not exactly experienced with festivals yet but with Oxegen just two days away I thought i'd make a post on what I'm bringing to it to keep me sane and feeling fresh(ish)!
Hand sanitiser is a MUST for me and anyone going to a festival, if you're going, you're going to get so dirty and muddy and having dirty hands is going to make the trip just so much worse! Boots have a 2 for 1 offer on hand sanitiser so I picked up Carex Hand Gel with Moisture Plus. I'm not the biggest fan of the smell but I really don't think I'll mind all that much seeing as I'll be drinking and talking with my friends too much to notice.
I'm going to bring Hand Food from Soap & Glory for my hands which I'll probably use every night when I'm relaxing, if I get time to relax. It smells so good and makes my hands feel so smooth and lovely!
I bought a small lip balm from The Handmade Soap Co. in the flavour Choco-Mint. It smells gorgeous! It tingles my lips too, so minty! I'll deffinitely be taking it, it's in a small tin and makes my lips feel so soft, it's a nice substitute to bringing a clumpy lip gloss and I can carry it in my pocket.
Batiste have a really nice range of dry shampoos, something I'll need while away, seeing as I don't plan on showering (I have two packets of baby wipes for that!) they smell lovely and they're really easy to use. I bought it in Blush, the pink one, as usual, I think it smells nicest.
I doubt I'll be putting piles of make-up on every day, because I don't usually really care, so all I'll be taking is a concealer which I'll use as a foundation, eyeliner and some mascara. I know for a fact that it'll be smudged so much I'll look like a mess at the end of the day, every day, but it's a festival, I doubt anyone cares!
I'm so excited about Oxegen, I can't think straight or type a proper blog post so for that I'm sorry.
Also, I am now seventeen!!! Happy birthday to me!!

Quick review - Soap & Glory + Lush!

I've never been mad into skin care or hair care. I always just used whatever shampoo was in the bathroom and didn't bother with conditioner. I also never really bothered with exfoliater or moisturiser or anything to make my skin feel lovely before. This is changing at lightning speed lately! Anytime I have money I always go into Boots or Superdrug or anywhere I know will sell something nice and I search the shelves for anything within my price range!
I bought Flake Away by Soap & Glory , which I mentioned in my last blog post which you can find here. I've used it about three times from then and the amount hasn't seemed to decrease at all. It really does exfoliate and feels so nice when it's being rubbed in. My skin has a really nice faint smell after I use it too, it's super gorgeous! The packaging is gorgeous too, it's my favourite shade of a coral pink and mmm I just want to eat it!
I was in Dublin yesterday for the very exciting Gay Pride Parade which I found incredible for my first year, I had ten euro to my name after buying my ticket so I went into Lush, I've gone into the shop everytime I went to Dublin so I was deffinitely going to get something after being very pleased with their lovely Each Peach Massage Bar!
I asked a very lovely sales woman to help me out and she explained to me ablout their different hair products and settled with New Hair, a shampoo bar specially made to help stimulate blood flow to the scalp and get hair growing, something I'm dying for as I want my long hair back asap!
Made with bay, clove and cinnamon essential oils, I'm not a big fan of the smell but it feel gorgeous in my hair and it is so easy to use! I just rubbed it in three circles on top on my hair and it lathered up so well, I wasn't expecting that at all! I do love the colour of the bar though and the fact that it is totally enviromentally friendly! It's supposed to last the same amount of time as three bottles of shampoo so I will deffinitely be purchasing that again!
Do you have any skin or haircare products that you love? Tell me!

Today I went shopping in the "Summer" Sales, the title didn't particularly suit the weather though, it's lashing rain! I'm just back after getting soaked to the skin, and without a coat may I add?!
I left the house with €100 to my name, and trust me, I am the happiest girl in the world, I spent it sooo well!
I went into Topshop first, desperately searching through the racks forjeans, but to no avail, the only ones I liked were the ones I already have! So I looked at the other racks.
I got this really lovely shirt for €15 on sale. I think it's really cool and the material is so comfy, I can't wait to wear it out!
I also seen this for €15, it's super cute and even though it's long sleved it's really light and cool, I like the way it falls and the breast pocket is a really nice touch!
I almost died when I seen vest tops on sale for only €4!! When does Topshop ever do deals like that?? I only got one, because I was planning on buying so much more. I'm not going to post a photo because you cansee straight through to my bra but I think it's really really nice.
This top was only €7  was delighted when I picked it up, I've been dying to get a plain white shirt for ages so I had to get it!
 All of that came to €41 but she asked me for my student card (I didn't know they did student discount on sale items?) So I got it for €36.90! Needless to say, I was happy!
Next I went into Villa, tried on countless jeans and still no luck, I did find this gorgeous jumper though, sadly it wasn't on sale but I did get a student discount, I paid €24.25 for this. It's baggy and cosy and has a super cute breast pocket. (I'm obsessed with breasst pockets lately!
 With most of my money gone I decided to treat myself! I went into Boots and straight to Soap & Glory and picked up a tub of Flake Away. It smells like angels and hearts and sweet things and smells so yummy! I've heard good reviews about this and I can't wait to start using it!
I also bought myself an eyeshadow by 17, the shade is called "Regal", it's a really pretty midnight blue and I bought a concealer stick from 17 too, I don't think I'll be entirely happy with it though, it's darker than I thought!
I am very happy with today, even though the weather was crap I bought some really nice things!
WHat have you bought this summer?
