What’s seldom is wonderful. I am back with a fashion haul. It’s been a while I know. But I’m brutal at them though ha!

fashion haul

I love clothes, I just don’t love my body. So it’s really hard to put it on show online. That means a fashion haul for me is more just showing clothes to the camera and trying to describe them. Maybe one day I’ll be comfortable enough for the fancy cutaways showing the clothing on. For now, I hope this method is ok.

I chat in abundance about what I bought and why I bought it in the video above or here. And then I will put pics and links down below of everything I can.

I think everything I bought from ASOS, Zara and River Island altogether cost just over €200. For the amount of things I picked up online, I think that’s a pretty good price!

My Zara fashion haul is first!

Striped giraffe shirt which I’m wearing in the video.

Next up is ASOS. I only picked up two things from them.

First up is these fringed sliders from a brand called Kaltur.

I actually wore these the other day and I did end up with blisters on the tops of my feet. Just something to note. They are available here.

ASOS own brand ruffle wrap lip top.

Last but not least in my fashion haul are the bits I picked up from the River Island sale.

Black stipe puff sleeve wrap over blouse. I think my fave item from what I got.

Was still available when I was writing this online here.

Next up is this lemon cut out blouse.

The dud of the haul is probably this pom pom t shirt, just because I sized up and it was already an over sized item.

And then finally the second pair of shoes I picked up were these backless loafers.

And that’s it for my birthday money fashion haul. Let me know what you think and I promise I will try with the try on cutaways some time in my blogging future 🙂

I am way late on the March Favourites for 2018 bandwagon. We are well into April. But sure I thought, better late than never, right?

March Favourites

My March Favourites this year are a bit of a mixed bag of beauty (of course), fashion, (in inverted commas ha), and a Netflix recommendation.

march favourites

March has been a bit of a funny month for me. I have been job hunting, but in a different way from what I am used to. Blogging for the last four years has given me a love for digital media and I’ve realised it’s the industry I would love to work in. Don’t get me wrong, I would love nothing more than to write about beauty full time, but here in Ireland, as someone like me, that’s not really a reality right now.

So March has been a been a whirl wind of interviews, beauty writing and life stuff. It’s been weirdly a month of clarity for me, so for that I am very grateful. Also, the weather was getting a teeny bit warmer through the month, so that helps everything. I wouldn’t be Irish if I didn’t bring the weather into this sum up somehow 🙂

Ok, I digressed completely there, let’s get into my random bag of March Favourites.

top irish beauty blog

I talk more about them of course in the video, but I will link what I can here.

The Ella & Jo Squeaky Clean Brush Cleanser is my first beauty fave. You can buy it directly from their website or Meaghers Pharmacy also stock it. (It’s currently 20% off from Meaghers.)

I chat about the Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Colors all of the time but the shade, Lavender Out Loud, has been my go to shade through March.

The Nudestix Intense Lip + Cheek Pencils are available to us from Cult Beauty. I chat (and am wearing), the shade Kiss.beauty blog ireland

My Betty & Biddy necklace that I show isn’t on their website now, but I will link them here so you can check out what else they have on offer.top irish beauty blogger

The jeans are from Penneys and Littlewoods as I mention. I don’t have links to either, sorry.beauty blogger ireland

And then finally my honourable fave is Wild Wild Country on Netflix. I’ll link the Wikipedia page here so you can check it out. It’s a mind boggler 🙂

And there you have my March favourites for this year. Thanks for clicking as always, I really appreciate it.

I am waaaayyyyy late to the party. Life gets in the way sometimes. But, I am finally here to chat about my July Favourites for 2017 🙂

This month’s run down is a random array of things from alcohol to perfume and then, of course a smattering of makeup products too. We’re staying in our friends house dog sitting at the minute. So, these are all things I packed up and brought with me. That definitely means they’re worthy of my (very late) July favourites, right?

july favourites

  • First up is gin. Surprise, surprise 🙂 I chat more about my gin love here.
  • Next up is my new Molly Jeans from River Island. (Similar here).
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Parfum. You can buy it here.
  • Lacoste Eau De Lacoste Magnetic Pour Elle Parfum. On the Debenhams website here.
  • Rimmel Eastend Snob Lip Liner. You can see it swatched here. Lov Cosmetics Colour & Care lipstick in ‘Miriam’s Rosewood’. Lov Cosmetics is sold in selected pharmacies across the country.
  • Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel Nail Polish in ‘Crime of Passion’. I get these in bigger Dunnes Stores or Penneys.
  • My last July favourite is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Illuminating Powder in ‘Champagne Sorbet’. I have a full blogpost showcasing this here.

My makeup for this video was a bit different to my usual slap. I got carried away with some purple eyeshadow and blue liner.

I am going through a bit of a top heavy phase with my eye shadow. I’m enjoying just applying colour on the top lash line and leaving the bottom with just mascara. Or just a tiny but of definition.

Special shout out to Louis the Schnoodle for making another cameo in one of my videos. Watch until the end to see just how cute he really is. 🙂

I did a little bit of shopping. Well, enough to warrant a blogpost and video 🙂 I didn’t really know what to call this so I just went simple with Beauty Fashion Tech Haul 🙂

So, my beauty fashion tech haul (see it has a ring to it right? Not ha!). It consists of some bedding from Penneys.

Oh and some Penneys Christmas decorations…just because!

I picked a new jumper from H&M. Think I might keep this for Christmas Day 🙂

I got some beauty bits from Boots too. Some Batiste Dry Shampoo, Real Techniques Mini Eraser Sponges. I repurchased my Nyx Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown that I use in my My Brow Routine video here. And then, Bourjois was on 3 for 2 so I picked up their new Volume Reveal Mascara in the waterproof formula. Oh and two new shades of the very lovely Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipsticks to add to my collection.

And then finally, my really random (but necessary) purchase. A Nintendo Classic Mini.

This actually caught me off guard because I had it pre-ordered for months and then I just got the email to say it was in stock. We had to high tail it to Smyths and pick it up 🙂

And that’s it for my beauty fashion tech haul with the great inventive name 🙂 Obviously I go into more detail in the video. You can of course watch it by clicking above as always. Or, head straight to my Youtube channel here and watch it.

 

Let me know if you like haul videos. I had such a good reaction to the last one I did I thought I would add another to the playlist. I would love some feedback though.

Thanks, as always.
