A trip to remember. Amsterdam is such a stunning city and is definitely a must. It was our first trip away together and I couldn’t have asked for more. We went last January which meant it was freezing and that’s no exaggeration. I would definitely love to see this gorgeous city in the summer time. There was an endless list of things to do and each day was a new adventure.

We had a go on the bikes since its the most popular form of transport but the dutch just have no fear and are in a rush everywhere but I didn’t injure anyone so its all good. The swing was by far my favorite thing to do although Dan wasn’t so keen. From the food to the drink to the architecture this city is definitely not perfect but its their flaws that make them so great. The leaning houses are just to beautiful and unique.  well worth a visit.

Hey ho, I’m just sitting in my comfies and thought I’d share a little style inspiration. I mean after all it was just fashion week here in Cork last week. stripes came from Bershka (my fav shop) at the start of the summer and just look so classy and fabulous. Casually paired with jeans and converse. Perfect for a stroll in the park. The cold is definitely rolling in however I’m going on my holidays in two weeks so i’m not quite ready to let go of summer just yet. Stay tuned for some Jamaica fun.

NYX Tame And Frame


I can honesty say this has been one of my favourite products to use for awhile now. I have never really been and eyebrow person but for some reason it all changed and I’m obsessed. I’ve tried a few products now and have settled on NYXs tame and frame for awhile.


As NYX stated this product comes in five shades: blonde, chocolate, brunette, espresso, and black. The product comes in a frosted, clear plastic container with a black circular lid. 18 oz of product comes in the container. This product lasts about six months according to the expiration date on the container. At such an affordable price of 8 euro how can you resist.

I love this product! Everything from the lasting power to the pigmentation to the price make it an amazing product. It’s a great alternative to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Dipbrow. Notice I didn’t say dupe, it’s definitely not a dupe. Although I do love this product.

Bare Minerals Shimmer Eyeshadow


Simply stunning!! I’ve been given these shimmer shades recently and have been so excited to try them out, not really knowing what  my expectations were. The went on without any effort and blended so easily. I actually wasn’t expecting it to be. I will say I thought they were going to be a bit more glittery than they were however that’s just me being picky.


The colour options are very much varied from light shades to the dark. I think it’s well worth picking up a few of these shades since they are one-of-a-kind and do not crease, even without primer.

Race Day Antics


As a college student, race day is something that must be experienced. The perfect excuse to get all glammed up and yes of course drink. The planning and prep that goes into it, you’d swear it was a wedding. Now I know what your probably thinking, your not really into horse racing, well I didn’t look at a race once and don’t even get me started on how to place a bet.


Its all a bit of fun and an excuse to skip college for a day. A great way to bring everyone together and in my opinion promote fashion. I loved seeing all the different styles and different personalities shine through in their outfits. Any excuse to get dressed up I suppose. I can’t link my outfit below i’m afraid, the were bought awhile ago. I’ll still let ye know where they’re from.

Top: Forever 21

Skirt: Topshop

Shoes: Bershka

Clutch: Oasis

Knecklace: Accesorize

Cat Von D, Lock It Featherweight Primer.


Gather round dry skin girls you need the new Kat Von D lock it primer(32 euro) which is a water based facial primer that was introduced for Spring 2015 to the permanent Kat Von D Sephora Makeup Collection.

If you’re looking for something to reduce the appearance of pores or something to mattify your skin, well, this isn’t a good pick for you. However, if your dry, thirsty skin needs more moisture, this is in fact a product for you!

Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer comes housed in the same round container as the Kat Von D lock it foundation. It also has a new little plug which can be placed over the spout to prevent the primer from hardening up inside the container.

The formula contains a host of great ingredients like B5, aloe vera, jojoba, and even shea. It’s the type of product that provides moisture and just keeps on giving because my skin feels pleasantly moist throughout the day without being shiny, greasy, or dewy. When my skin is moist, my foundation is happy. It gives my skin a smooth, well hydrated surface for my makeup to cling to.

Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer is an excellent facial primer for those with drier skin! Although I have normal skin it still works wonders. This one is nice for providing long lasting moisture, providing a smooth, hydrated surface for makeup, and allows makeup to wear fresher for longer. Trust me, Its a great pick.
