I did a teeny bit of shopping last weekend. I got a few bits so I thought I would combine them together and do a makeup haul in video form!

I do love watching Makeup Haul videos on Youtube so I am completely jumping on the bandwagon and doing my own πŸ™‚

Here are some links of the products I mention in case any of them tickle your fancy or you want to more information on anything.

Bourjois Air Mat Foundation – You can get on the Boots website here

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder – From Boots online here

The Rimmel Colour Precise Eyeliner- From Boots online here

Rimmel Super Gel Top Coat- From Boots online here

Keep an eye on the offers in Boots, they change all of the time πŸ™‚

I picked up the Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Matte Bronzing Gel in Penneys, but chemists and Boots around the country stock it too as does Cloud10Beauty. I have a blogpost about this too here if you’re curious.

Baptiste Dry Shampoo is available nationwide aswell. Boots stock it online here.

The denim skirt is a new arrival to Penneys I think. It comes in black and two shades of blue denim too and costs €14.

makeup haulThe Urban Decay Alice In Wonderland Palette costs €49 and you can buy instore in Debenhams as well as online here. It’s currently out of stock at the minute, perhaps I was wrong about the amount of stock they had in store :(.

There you have it my first video makeup haul! It made me realise I have to eliminate the word ‘so’ out of my vocabulary pronto…why do I keep saying it? ha!

As always thanks for watching (and reading). Let me know what you think, and if you liked it you could always subscribe to my channel and then any new videos go into your subscription box, just saying πŸ™‚

It’s April Favourites time! Yep April is over, yep it’s nearly half way through 2016, no I am not panicking, why do you ask πŸ™‚

April Favourites 2016

I started up doing monthly favourites again last month ( here ‘s Last months in case you missed them). And so I am back again a month later with my April Favourites for 2016 πŸ™‚

I did it in rambling video form again, let me know if it’s something you enjoy,or would you prefer it in a blog post format. I will list all the products always here on my website too though.

  • The first product is the Organic Surge Extra Care Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I found it online from Inish Pharmacy here. It costs €16.95.
  • YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Waterproof, there’s a full blogpost about this here and you can buy it online from Boots here
  • Essence Prettifying Lip Oil
  • Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Addiction, €5.49 from Boots here
  • theBalm MaryLou-Manizer. I have a full review here. You can buy it online from Cloud10beauty here It costs €21.50
  • Mac Book Air. I bought mine from Power City but I can’t find a link online. Here’s a link to it through Harvey Norman
  • And last but not least Lemonade from Beyonce (which I am currently listening to yet again as I write this πŸ™‚ ) I signed up to Tidal to watch it. You can sign up for a month’s free trial. If you do just be sure to turn off the subscription roll over or you’ll be charged for the next month, unless you want to keep using it of course πŸ™‚

And that’s it, these are some of my April Favourites. Be sure to let me know some of the things you’ve been loving for the month of April. Can you believe it’s no May? Madness altogether.

 

As always thanks for reading (and watching) I really appreciate it.

So many of you told me you love watching Get Ready With Me style videos. I love watching them too (not my own though if I’m being honest ha) So here’s a Spring Makeup one, where I am basically applying a face of makeup that I would wear for a Spring day/early evening. Myself and himself were off for some Friday eats this day so I thought it would be a appropriate because I was actually doing my makeup to go somewhere, not just for the sake of filming πŸ™‚

 

This is more of a talk through style video, which I still haven’t completely mastered, words still elude me πŸ™‚ But I thought I would give it a whirl and sure don’t they say practice makes perfect, right?

I did another Youtube video…it’s no mean feat I’ll tell you that much πŸ™‚ My neighbours are currently building an extension, so the noise outside my window is pretty loud this week, so I thought get ready with me using affordable makeup video would be appropriate with some chill out music over top.
