Midterm: My Week in Photos

Hey huns!
I know I didn't blog last week, but I was just so so busy!! I went to London for the whole week and only came home yesterday. I took a load of pictures throughout the whole week and thought, why not do a week in pictures post?

So Sunday was spent travelling to the airport and flying to Heathrow. Not very eventful I know, but who doesn't love pictures of clouds? I also painted my nails using a black colour by Essie and a sparkly top coat by Barry M.

On Monday, we headed straight for Westfield which is this HUGE shopping centre in London. We ate tapas for lunch (chorizo and calamares are my favs) and just shopped about. 
I also bought the uh-mazing purple tennis skirt from American Apparel which I have been lusting after for quite a bit. I also couldn't resist taking a mirror pic in the fab lighting of their changing rooms and in the incredibly pink changing rooms of VS Pink. 
My outfit for this day consisted of a black and white floral dress from Penneys, my hunter green Brandy Melville jumper, tights and my Doc Martens.

On Tuesday, we didn't really do much! I wore a gorgeous shirt from Urban Outfitters (which you can't really see) that I bought well over a year ago. We also went to a little cafe for lunch where I had the most delicious smoothie.

On Wednesday, my mum and I decided we would take a trip up to the area around Regeant Street and Carnaby.
Of course, I had to go to Brandy Melville and after that my mum and I had a lovely lunch in the famous Liberty ( there was a piece of caramelised bacon sticking out of my Caesar salad). 
We also had a look around a good few shops including Anthropologie which is such a cool shop!

Thursday and Friday were both pretty easy days. I tried lemonade coconut water on Thursday, which is so so good! I also saw the Shard at night which is pretty cool and we went to Starbucks where I ordered my favourite drink from there, which is a Raspberry Blckcurrant juice blend.
On the Friday, I got my tragus pierced (which I might actually do a blog post on) and we went for Mexican. Also took a selfie with Mam. :)

So that is my week in photos for midterm! This was actually quite a fun post to do, and I think I might do more in the future.

Current Skincare Favourites

Hey huns!
So today I am here with my top three skincare products!

First thing is the Simple kind to skin cleansing lotion. This is so great for taking off my makeup at the end of the day. I love this because it's really gentle on the skin, and it does a great job of removing all my makeup.

The next thing is a tea tree toner from the Body Shop. I love this because it takes off the rest of my makeup and the tea tree helps with keeping my skin clear!

The last thing is also a tea tree product from the Body Shop. This moisturiser is lovely because it's very light and the tea tree helps combat blemished skin.

To use the toner and the cleanser, I like to use cotton rounds. At the minute I'm using these ones from Penneys which are just €1!

So those are my current skincare favourites. Comment below if you would like to see a skincare routine!

January Favourites

Hey huns!
Happy spring! Today I am here with my January favourites for 2015! 

The first favourite of mine is my contact lenses! I've been loving these since the summer time, but never included them in any favourites! I'm actually quite lost without these, they're such a life saver.

The next two things are eyeliner and mascara. The eyeliner is the Supercat eyeliner by Soap and Glory and the mascara is They're Real by Benefit. I went out on a whim with the eyeliner, and honestly I love it! It is really easy to use and stays on all day. The mascara is also an old favourite of mine and I recently rekindled my love for it.

The next thing is a fashion favourite and it is a wool jumper from Brandy Melville. I found out that Brandy actually have a German website which delivers to Ireland for just €9! I had been eyeing up this jumper on Instagram and when I saw it on the website I just couldn't turn it down! I love wearing it with jeans and my black Doc Martens, so cute and casual.

The next two are shoes (yes I have a shoe problem). The first pair are black Doc Marten shoes and they are so comfy, as Docs usually are. They basically go with everything and I am in love. The other pair are New Balances! I bought these in Schuh and they are quite plain, but the flash of mint green sold it for me. I can't wait to wear these in spring and summer.

The last two things are music. The first is an album by Banks. I have loved Banks for about a year, but only bought her album recently. It's fantastic. I especially love 'Brain' and 'You Should Know Where I'm Coming From'.
I am also loving Alt-J's album 'This is All Yours'. I can easily listen to this album from start to finish, it's amazing!

So that is it from me! I hope you have enjoyed this (late) post.
