Boots Haul
So this week I am going to a Debs! If you don't know what that is, it's basically like Prom. I have never been to a Debs before so I am very very excited! Anyway, I had to run to Boots yesterday to pick a few things up in preparation for the Debs.

So the first thing I picked up was the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. I was in need of a new shampoo and conditioner and my friends had nothing but great things to say about this pair so I decided to get it and give it a try myself. These are 2 for €8.

Next I got these Elegant Touch nails. I never use false nails so I have no idea how good or bad this brand is! I got nails that were on the shorter side as usually my nails aren't long at all so I am not used to really long nails and to be honest, everything tends to be so much harder for me with long nails! These were approximately €9.

I then picked up the Eylure Naturalites False Eyelashes in Super Full. My eyelashes are very short so whenever I can I like to wear false eyelashes, but the natural ones! Eylure is my favourite brand because I think the glue works the best! So if you are looking for false eyelashes, I would highly recommend this brand. These eyelashes were €7.20

As I am not getting a spray tan for the debs (because the last time I turned out tango) I thought I would do it myself! I have a good bit of experience of self tanning so I am confident enough to do it myself well (hopefully). I got the light to medium in St. Tropez so lets hope it turns out well! This was about €20.

Lastly I got my usual Simple Kind To Eyes Nourishing Eye Make-Up Remover Cream. This does the job and doesn't sting my eyes (unlike the normal Simple eye makeup remover). This was €5.59! 

Style Steal | Zoella

Style Steal | Zoella
So today I decided to start a new series on my blog called 'Style Steal', and today I will be stealing the style of Zoe Sugg aka Zoella!

This first outfit was inspired by Zoe's outfit of LA day 3 ( I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and I just knew that I had to recreate it! If you read my last post, my Primark/ Pennies haul, you will have seen this top and jumper. Zoe's Jumper is from Topshop so my jumper is a nice, cheap alternative! My skirt is from Topshop and Zoe's is from New Look but her's is unfortunately sold out! I recently wore this to a Christening with some cute brown boots and I got great feedback from it. I love this outfit and will definitely be wearing it throughout Autumn.

Zoella always rocks collars, so i thought this dress was perfect! Zoe wore her navy dress recently at Vidcon in LA. I got my black dress in Dunnes Stores for €40 and Zoe got her's in Primark. To a party recently, I paired this dress with a cute black bowler hat and some boots and it made such a cute outfit!

I hope you enjoyed this 'style steal' and there will hopefully be many more to come in the future! Oh and I am terribly sorry about the quality of the pictures, I'm trying my best to figure out how to get the best photo's for my blog!

Have a great day! :)

Primark haul!

Primark haul!
To a certain extent, I believe that you get what you pay for. However in Primark recently i found some great buys that I'm really excited about!

I apologize in advance for the terrible lighting in these pictures but I hope you get a general idea.

 So I decided to get this jumper because it really reminded me of Zoella's Topshop jumper from one of her recent LA vlogs. She paired it with a white skirt with black polka dots and a cute collar peaking out underneath. This piece will be great coming into the autumn and winter! This jumper was a bargain at €10.

This next top, I thought would go wonderfully under the jumper! I found the collar to be slightly tight around my neck but it still looks very pretty. In my opinion this is a super girly piece that is very versatile.

I bought this t-shirt simply because it was humorous. I absolutely love blogging but as I am a very lazy person I needed something to motivate me to get into it lately! The moment I saw this I knew that this was it. I'll just wear this lounging around the house but it was very cheap at €5.

I can safely say that I am in love with this piece! It is a gorgeous kimono style throw over, in a chiffon material. This piece was a steal at only €17! I just can't say enough about this, it's very flattering, it's versatile, it's just so pretty!  

I have never been big into jewelry but lately I have seen a lot of my friends and celebrities wearing some statement necklaces. Personally I think they add character to an outfit. That is why I decided to buy this lovely Romanesque piece, and you can't go wrong, it was only €5!
