Things That Made Me Happy Last Week || Life

Lazy Day

So clearly my 'working on my schedule' turned into a two post kinda week, I'm still working on it please bare with me! Anyways today I'm in work so as I'm writing this it's Sunday night and I'm sat on my bed that I've just dressed in my Christmas attire (see Instagram snap here) and I'm oh so cosy, however as the Monday blues start to creep up I decided to write about some things that I enjoyed during last week. 

Inside Out was finally released on Dvd and you can bet that I have been watching it everyday since getting it. I have yet to buy it on Dvd however my dad has rented it out for the month for me so I'll be sure to pick up a copy I can purchase when I finally have to return it. I swear I absolutely adore the movie and I even got an Inside Out advent calendar this year while having a bit of a splurge (haul coming soon!) 

Zoella Beauty Candy Cream || Beauty

Zoella Candy Cream

I'm one of those people who owns 10 bottles of body lotion and will only ever use them every so often however recently I've been really good and have continuously been switching between two and using them at least once a day. One of those body creams is of course the Candy Cream from the Zoella Beauty range.

The Palette I've Been Using Everyday || Beauty

Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette

When it comes to makeup products my biggest weakness is eyeshadow palettes, I may have the shame shades 100 different times but just with a different brand name and a different layout, and I'm totally fine with that. Too Faced has been a brand I'm only recently new to and have yet to use a decent amount of their products but with the ones I have tried I'm totally obsessed.

The Too Faced Natural Eyes palette is the only palette I've tried from Too Faced so far and I am in total love with it. When I'm getting ready for work this is the only palette I go for. With  three looks already laid out for you it really couldn't be any more simple, all that's left for you to do is to sweep the shadows onto your lids. The shadows themselves are extremely buttery and just simply a dream to work with. With 9 gorgeous pigmented everyday shades you really cannot go wrong for €35.00. Also can we talk about how pretty the packaging is? Because it is extremely adorable!

Being Unorganised || Life


So recently you may have noticed how I've gone quiet on every single social media platform I'm on and honestly it's because I can't seem to juggle having a job, blogging and updating my social media's. Huge props to those who work full time and still manage to have their blog posts up on their assigned days, please tell me how you all do it!

However yes back in October I started my job in Boots and I absolutely adore it. However when I come home everyday after work I'm just fit for bed. For the first few weeks I'd be up past midnight trying to write up posts, schedule them and then also schedule tweets but more than often I was waking up the next morning with my head on my laptop and not much done. So clearly that had failed. And now my problem is the days I am off the weather just curses me and stays dull and rains all day long and dear god is anybody else sick of this non photography kind of weather because I'm over it.

Caring For Your Hair With Maple Holistics || Haircare

Maple Holistics Haircare

As a person who studied hair to become a hair stylist I'm quite fussy when it comes to picking shampoos and conditioners as I know what kind of ingredients to look for. If you've been reading my blog for awhile you'd know that I love products that contain natural ingredients, I just think it's nice to be able to treat yourself using products that won't cause any harm etc. I've been using Maple Holistics for awhile now and so my opinion has definitely formed on the products.

I tried Maple Holistics skincare awhile back and absolutely adored it! You can find that post here if you'd like to read more about that. So one thing I will say is I suffer from a dry scalp, especially at this time of year it starts to feel sore and tight and even though I've found products that help I try to stay away from products that may irritate it. So when I received the Maple Holistics Shampoo* and Conditioner* I had to do a little research to find out some more things about them but thankfully they are both for all scalp types!

Makeup I'm Currently Using || Beauty

A while back I bought the Zoella Awesome Drawersome set as I fell in love with the drawers and wanted to use them to store my everyday makeup. You can see the original contents that were in the drawers here! Now onto what I currently have in them.

In the top drawer I keep my base products so things such as my primers, foundations, concealers and powders and also my brow palette. For primers I've been switching about at the moment between the Botanics Radiance Balm which gives your skin the most gorgeous healthy glow and just helps if you need a pick me up. The other primer I've been using is the Smashbox Photo Finish which I must say I've become slightly obsessed with. It evens out any pores and just feels so smooth on the skin. It also keeps my makeup lasting for absolutely hours which I adore. I can definitely see myself buying a full size one when this is gone. Another primer I've been loving but it's only for under the eyes is the Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer which was something I had never used before but with it's properties to help de-puff eyes and with dark circles I cannot get enough of it, and find when I use it my concealer definitely stays putt without having to touch it up throughout the day.

Things I Really Enjoyed This Week || Life

Girl Online Novel by Zoella

I feel like I haven't wrote a chatty post in a while and I was just in the mood to do so and thought what a better one to do than the things I enjoyed this week! So lets jump right in I guess.

Firstly starting with Girl Online 2 just like the first one I finished this the same day I bought it and absolutely loved the story line. When it comes to books I do still love the stories that are aimed at teenagers but hey I'm still a child at heart! Also the covers are so super pretty and girly and definitely Instagram worthy! I'm not going to give spoilers away for either book just incase but I personally like the storyline and cannot wait for more!

When it comes to Television Netflix is my kinda thing. I've watched Kevin Hart's stand up comedy show about 8 times this week and I swear I still laugh as much as I did when I watched it for the first time. I've also been loving the movie 'Killers' 'Just Go With It' and 'The Rebound'. I've also noticed that they've started to add the Christmas movies such as Home Alone and The Santa Claus so I'm sure I'll just have to accept that Halloween is over and give in to the Christmas hype.

Autumn - Winter Eyes With Seventeen Cosmetics || Beauty

Seventeen Cosmetics Swatches

Seventeen cosmetics is a brand that I tried a lot of this year, due to their amazing quality products for such affordable prices. So when I was sent two of their eye products to try out I was pretty excited as their eyeshadows were something I had yet to try.

Starting with the Eye eye crayon in 'Iced White'* I've been loving using this jumbo crayon for two things. The first being to highlight my brow bone. The crayon itself is pigmented and buttery and so it allows you to blend it out as much as you like and works with you as there is nothing worse than a jumbo crayon that's waxy and just doesn't want to participate. The second use for this which I've been loving is using it as an eye base. I currently don't have any eye primers left and so I decided to try this out one day and have been using it ever since. As it's white it really allows your eyeshadows to pop and show their true colour. The eye eye crayon comes in four different shades and will only set you back €5.49 for each one!

A Subscription Box That's Just Too Adorable || Life

Subscription boxes are a huge thing these days, you can get literally any kind to cater to your needs. I will say when It comes to Beauty Subscription boxes they don't tend to interest me as I've yet to come across one that doesn't disappoint. However I love homeware products and everything like that so when I was sent November's Not Shabby Very Chic Treatbox* I was so excited to see what was inside!

W7 Oh So Waterproof Mascara || Beauty

W7 Oh So Waterproof Mascara

When it comes to mascaras I normally 99.9% of the time opt for a waterproof one, especially in this weather as the slightest bit of wind causes my eyes to water. I'm also quite picky when it comes to mascaras as I don't want something that's too clumpy but I also want it to add length and volume to my lashes. So when I pick out a mascara I'm quite the critic because if it doesn't work it's simply tossed into one of my drawers and forgotten about.
