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!!
