Birthday Wishlist

Hey Huns!
So this day two weeks I'm going to be turning 15! (Yes, on Friday the 13th...) This isn't really as big a mile stone as 16, but in Latin countries, when you turn 15 you get a quinceanera. I have been thinking about things I *maybe* would like, and I thought I'd share it with you!

1. Danisnotonfire t-shirt from redbubble
I love this! I was looking for one of Dan and Phil, but I think I like this one too much!

2. MAC Lipstick in Violetta
I might save my money to buy this. Its such a pretty pretty purple colour.

3. NYX matte lipstick in Shocking Pink
I love pink lipsticks and have been on the hunt for a matte one! 

4. Creepers
I might just get a pair from Penneys to be honest! I have a burgundy pair, but I think a black pair would go with more outfits.

5. Soap & Glory Hand Food
I have heard so many bloggers and vloggers RAVE about this product, so naturally I'm dying to try it.

6. Essie "Lilacism"
Oh how I have been admiring this nail polish! I don't like purple nail polish, but lilacy pastels like this? NEEEEEEE.

So that was just a wee bit of sharing there! Obviously I'm not going to get everything there, it's just a few things I desire! Have a good weekend huns!

Juggling blogging, exams and other things in life!

Hey Huns!
So sadly I go back to school tomorrow! 

(*sob* *sob*) 
For me, this year is going to be a lot of work because it is my Junior Cert year. (Junior Cert is the Irish version of GCSE's.)
This means that although its my hobby and I absolutely totally love it, blogging is going to have to come second to school work. 
So thats why I have decided to do a post on being organised because I know a lot of my fellow bloggers are going through their exams this year too.

1. Have a schedule and stick to it
I am starting to do this. I'll hopefully be posting every Saturday with a video or blog post. (I probably started YouTube at a bad time to be honest, but anyway!)

2. Have a timetable for studying
I know I'll be doing this! This will give me a good idea of how much time I then have to practice piano and/or relax. 

3. Get a blogging notebook
I have one! This is so so handy because I am able to plan posts and jot down ideas. Also, closer to exams this will help because you might be able to schedule some posts.

4. Be prepared for exams
Don't leave studying to the last minute. Always make sure you feel as if you have done everything you can.

5. Don't overstudy 
We all need downtime. Down time for me includes blogging or making videos because it's fun AND relaxing.

I hope this post was somewhat useful! I might do a "First Day At School" post tomorrow. And hopefully I will finally upload my Back to School hair and makeup for those days you're in a rush (Bit late, but better late than never?)

End Of Summer Haul Part 2

Hey Huns!
This is part two of my end of summer haul! This is the beauty, makeup, penguins, etc part.

By the way, I had filmed both at the same time, but when I looked at the footage, it turned out my head was cut off from the film so yeah... awkward. I hope you enjoy the video!

Hey Huns!
So I was meant to have a video uploaded and ready for today so I had it uploading while I was sleeping. I don't know why, but when I came downstairs this morning, my laptop was in the log in screen, and the video had stopped uploading. I'll try and get the video up within the next day or two. Sorry!

Maybelline Baby Lips Review

Hey Huns!
So right now I'm blogging with my iPod so excuse the bad formatting!
I finally got a Maybelline Baby Lips after much anticipation! I was a tiny bit apprehensive considering the hype that it might not be as good as its made out to be. Glad I was wrong! 
The one I got was Cherry Me which I got for £2.99 in Boots (England, seeing as its almost impossible to find in Ireland at the minute.) The packaging is bright and good for the environment! (RECYCLE!) 
My first impression was that it smells amazing. It doesn't taste like cherries though. It doesn't taste like anything actually.
The balm itself gives a lovely redish tint to my lips as long as a subtle sheen. I can feel it on my lips for ages which is good because at least I don't have to reapply it too often. 
All in all, I love this lip balm - cant wait to hopefully try the rest! 
I hope you enjoyed this post :)

July Favourites!

hey huns!
SO at long long last, I am FINALLY posting my July favourites! (woo!)The video will be uploaded later so subscribe to my channel - it's going to be my first public video and im actually really excited about that! This post is going to be just beauty favourites, the random ones are in my video. 
On with the favourites!

1.Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara - this is a lovey mascara. It doesn't tug on my lashes and the formula doesn't leave them feeling hard and untouchable.
2. Rimmel Apocalips in Nova - I already have the one in Celestial, and I bought this in Penneys (Dublin) for 3-4 euro, so it was way cheaper than usual. I love the colour and stays on my lips for ages.
3. Maybelline 14hr Super Stay Lipstick in Infinitely Fuschia - I love this. It stays for ages and is such a bright pretty colour. I'll more than likely be wearing this into the A/W.
4. MAC lipstick in Girl About Town - This is also a really pretty bright pink. Like the maybelline one, it too stays for ages. I absolutely love this lipstick and wore it like crazy.
5. MAC Paintpot in Rubenesque - This is a gold cream eyeshadow with lovely salmon-pink undertones. It works really well as a base or on its own. I have worn this nearly every day of July and I absolutely love it.
6. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - I've been loving this palette for doing smokey eyes. (Tutorial?) Its so handy to have the colours all in the one place. I've mostly been using Blackout, Chopper, Snakebite and Half Baked.

1. Lush Happy Hippy Shower Gel - I love this shower gel! It has such a subtle yet lovely citrus smell. It can also be used as a shampoo, but my main use for it was as a shower gel.
2. Viva La Juicy La Fleur - This is a really nice smelling eau de toillette. I got it going through the airport when coming back from holidays and I've worn it non stop since!
3. Aussie Colour Mate Conditioner - I had the ends of my hair bleached and since then I've dyed my ends pink. This conditioner works really well because the dye said 6-8 washes, and it still isn't washed out after about 10 washes which is great. And it smells good too.

Favourite Songs
So my camera ran out of battery before I could mention it. I have a lot of favourites this month, so I made a YouTube playlist.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I'll edit this post again and put in the video later. Until then!

Hey Huns!
So I thought I'd have WiFi while I was away, but guess what. There was none.
I was gone for three weeks (I can't say where - sorry!) and I had scheduled posts. I can't wait to get back into blogging again!

Over the past month I feel as if I haven't had as many people as I'd like reading my blog. I love blogging so much, but I feel as if no one is reading it. I just don't know what to do!

I should have my July favourites filmed and uploaded within the next week or so, sorry they're late.

Review: OPI Nail Polish "No Room For The Blues"

hey huns!
so going through duty free there was an OPI stand. Their nail polishes are about a tennar each and the one I chose was "No Room For The Blues". 

The bottle is lovely, and there seems to be loads of product in it. I am in love with the colour. It is a bit darker than the colour in the bottle after the second coat. It chipped after about 4 days without a top coat which I think is outstanding. It doesn't dry the quickest, so even though I'm really impatient I had to sit for a while to let it dry. All in all, it's a beautiful colour and the consitency is thicker than I thought it would be. I really want to try more of their nail polishes, and I'd definitely reccommend this one.
