Tip Thursday!

Hi guys

Today's Tip is helping you choose your perfect Foundation 
Its best to test your foundation in day light , not under the fluorescent lights that are in the department stores 
I always tend to test the foundation on my neck because your main objective is to have your face and neck the same tone
usually In high end department stores there is a beauty adviser to help you colour match 
they are usually pretty generous as well and tend to give you a sample to see how ya like the foundation
if it is a pretty good match but your not interested or cant afford the higher end foundations you can always bring it into the drugstore / high street  
and match it to the more affordable brands
hope you enjoyed that

January favourites

Hi guys 
Well its that time again its the end of January and time for my favourites

Eau Thermale Avene Gentle eye make up remover I found this really great to remove my
 waterproof mascara. 

Eau Thermale Avene Rich skin recovery cream this has been a skin saviour the last two months with the harsh weather

I have been loving The soap and glory  eyeshadow quad in whats nude it has become my everyday eyeshadow and I really do think they are the same quality as M.A.C 

I'm also obsessed with an app on my I Phone called the Simpson's tapped out

you basically have to re-build Springfield after a nuclear explosion
its free and so much fun and so so addictive!!

 I have been loving Pretty little Liars

Soap and Glory Whats Nude

Hi guys
Today I wanted to show you this palette I have been loving lately its the Soap and Glory whats nude
What's Nude contains 3 matte shades and one shimmer. Each individual shade has a name; Vanilla is a creamy off-white beige with a matte finish , Pink T is a soft  pink with a matte finish, Mudhoney is  a muddy brown which is also matte, and lastly the only shimmer eye shadow, Aubersheen, is a sparkly  brown which kind of remind me of Mac satin taupe . They all have good pigmentation not amazing . They all apply and blend well on the eyes. The palettes themselves bare a striking resemblance to the older MAC quad but at a fraction of the cost I believe a Mac quads would cost about €51 euro as the individual shades cost €11 each and the quad it self empty is €7 I'm not 100% on that price but it is somewhere around that price mark and this palette cost €14.50 in boots

                       Overall, I love this and would recommend this its a great everyday palette

(Vanilla & Pink T )

(Mudhoney & Aubersheen)

This is usually the look I use trying to keep everything nice and natural for work
( please forgive my big massive nose)
Hope you guys enjoyed that

A quick diet

Hi guys 
Today I decided I would do the celebrity slim programme for the next twenty two days on the 14th February  I'm going for a dress fitting on that date and would like to be maybe a stone down 
I have been on the celebrity slim programme last year and found it extremely good and lost up to three stone but kind of found it hard to keep motivation.
I would like to use this diet to kick start me in to losing weight 
for any of you that havent heard about Celebrity Slim
Celebrity Slim is a meal replacement programmes for  weight loss. It's designed to help you lose weight fast - and keep it off.
The programme works by restricting the amount of carbohydrates and overall calories in your diet, however this is not a total meal replacement diet. In fact, for those who want to lose weight fast, we ask you to eat 5-6 times a day, rather than the usual three. This helps to boost your metabolism and means you're less likely to get hungry.
You simply replace two meals each day with our delicious Celebrity Slim Shakes, Bars or soups, which are packed full of an advanced protein formula designed to keep your hunger pangs away for longer. Then you eat one balanced meal each day and snack on a variety of allowable foods.

A Typical Day on Celebrity Slim



I know some of you will think I'm mad but Id like to be a little slimmer for that day 
I guess I'm just putting it out there so I have to be held to stick to it 
fingers crossed!!

Empties no.1

Hi guys 
wow I cant believe this is my first post on empties I always seem to buy so many different shampoo, shower gels etc and always switch half way through using them that I never seem to finish one however in December I decided that I would not allow my self to buy anymore till I have a less cluttered bathroom shelf and it seems to be working  : )

First up is shampoo
Pantene Aqua light it was fine I generally pick up what ever shampoo is on offer in my local super market i would never really spend that much money that just wash down the drain so I'm never really that fussy this did have a really nice fresh scent I do really think Pantene is a good make so you really cant go wrong I wont be rushing out to repurchased this but it did the job! 

Next shampoo is L'oreal Elvive Re-Nutrition 
I have to say in the last few years I haven't liked this range of L'oreal shampoos I find them way too over perfumed and the pink one  which I believe is the nutri-gloss one actually make my hair look greasy so I never bothered with it in the last year or so but I must have bought two of these bottles when I did like them and I have to say I really liked it my hair seems so soft and shiny since I started using it again
 I would go out and buy this again 

Dove silky nourishment body cream 
Have to say wasn't really a fan of this I got the free from a coupon my local supermarket were giving out and I'm glad it was free I really don't think it did anything for my skin I was fine to use as a body lotion after the shower but I didn't really have that great of a smell or anything 
I will not be repurchasing this again

Super drug cotton soft baby wipes 
I love these super cheap but really good I use these for anything and everything they smell so good and the are actually really gentle on your skin 
I will be getting these again 

Nivea visage 
eye make up remover 
Not the best eye make up remover but to be honest I have no Patience for take off make up when I want it off I just want it off I tend to use waterproof mascara and this is just too gentle I kind of end up rubbing my eyes really hard to get it off which isn't good 
I wont be getting this again 

Garnier Invisi mineral in calm 
I liked this I used this before the gym and it holds up really well has a nice fresh kind of girlie floral scent (sorry for the bad description)
have repurchased this already 

Soap and Glory 
Mist you madly body spray 
Love this and have already got a new bottle 
you really cant go wrong with soap and glory 

And finally 
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
This was a gift by one of my best friend for my birthday a year or two ago and I couldn't believe it I love all things Chanel and she knew and kindly got me this I love it Its the most famine lady like classy  perfume
you really cant go wrong with this I already have purchased this again

Hope you guys enjoyed that

Eau Thermale Avene

Hi guys 
I want to share with you today my favourite skin care brand I have always loved nivea and still do but this skin care range has me in love it is the Eau thermale Avene

EAU THERMALE Avène is a unique French dermo cosmetic brand dedicated to each level of skin
sensitivity; from sensitive, intolerant to allergic.  Each product contains the Avène Thermal Spring
Water, a unique ingredient whose properties have been endorsed by dermatologists over the years.

Avene is generally well known  for their Thermal Spring Water spray 
This is great at refreshing the skin I have had one friend that brought this with her when she was giving birth and she loved it.
I have spoken in short and did a mini review on the Avene Tricneal which is really great for spot treatment and  prevents scaring

Apart from TriAcneal I'm loving there make up remover which is a gel like remover even though it is a gentle eye make up remover it is really great at removing my waterproof mascara

The rich skin recovery cream 
This is a really great cream thick but not too thick perfect for winter and was my saviour the last two months 

The micellar lotion 
Is a really good cleanser what I would imagine Bio derma would be like it has a really nice
fresh scent to it not too over powering which is never good 

I have really taken an interest in this Brand and am interested in trying out the whole range and now that they are available in boots its great for me boots points and skin care!!

I would really recommend this skin care range 
If you try it let me know what you think 
Hope you enjoyed that

next up was the sleek pout polish which is a tinted lip conditioner  in the colour pink cadillac 947 this is so nice it gives such a nice colour to the lips it also has a spf of 15 and tastes yummy with a really nice vanilla scent

This is the Storm palette which is great and I know already that I like this as I already has it in my collection
