October Favourites
Well hasn't October been a very fast month? I hardly saw it go by! But I have been trying out some new products and doing a spot of shopping for the Autumn/ Winter season.

My first favourite is this wonderful bag from Primark/ Penny's which was about €11. It fits absolutly everything and it looks very sophisticated in my opinion. As its black it goes with everything and I really like the gold detailing as I hardly ever wear silver.

This month I have been loving Collection's 'Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer' in the shade light which can be found here. I have very dark under eye circles and this covers them pretty well! It has a very thick consistency and it took a while to get used to blending it.

My last favourite has to be 'Charcoal Brown' eye shadow from MAC which can be found here. My eyebrows are very blonde in comparison to my natural and current hair colour, so I use this to darken up my eyebrows with an angled brush. I would use this colour maybe on nights out however if you have dark hair it's a perfect colour for you. However I also really like this as a crease colour.

I hope you enjoyed my October Favourites, what have you been loving this October?
Happy Halloween!

My Topshop Wishlist A/W 2013

My Topshop Wishlist A/W 2013

I've been loving Topshop at the moment but as you may know it's very expensive however everytime I walk into the shop I never fail to swoon! So here is a list of items that I have my eye on in Topshop at the moment.

I was drawn to these bad boys online and I'm in love! They are a subtle pattern but could make an outfit really stand out. I cannot pull off Aztec leggings or extremely patterened leggings so i feel that these would be a wonderful alternative at £28.

How adorable is this shirt though? I love the contrasting black and cream, and the collar gives it that really girly edge. This shirt comes it at an expensive price of £32.

Lately I have been loving Kimonos and I have defiantly given into the trend. This one just looks so elegant and gorgeous. This kimono is £45.

So I have no idea of what attracted me to these shoes (as I wouldn't usually go for them) but I really like them! I have only seen them on the website so I would like to see them in person but I think they are very unique and could really make an outfit. These shoes are £32.

I'm a sucker for hats and of course you have to whip out your winter woollies at this time of year! This grey chunky hat is very versatile and will defiantly keep me warm. This hat is £16.

Well that's my Topshop wishlist of Autumn/ Winter 2013! I hope you enjoyed getting a better look of my fashion tastes.

I hope you have a great day x

Autumn/ Winter Nails

Autumn/ Winter Nails
As Autumn has arrived, it is completely necessary to change up your nail colour. The bright colours change to dark and I must say that I love it! I'm all for bright colours but I cannot resist a classic deep red during the Autumn/ Winter season. Which leads me onto my first colour..

Bad Habit - Topshop

This is my go- to nail varnish for this time of year. It picks up as a brighter red on camera but it is a gorgeous deep classic red.

I love Topshop's nail varnishes as they last long and i love that this colour has a glossy and shiny finish to it as a lot of the colours have.

This nail varnish is about €7.50/ £5 and it is worth every penny because it is such a staple colour.

Kiko - 617

It's a disappointing moment when you realise your nail varnish doesn't have a name, nevertheless this is a fabulous colour!

This is a metallic, chrome colour that looks absolutely amazing on the nails! I can see myself reaching for this nail varnish more and more as the weeks go on, but I know it will be the perfect new years party colour.

The brand Kiko can be found online here. This nail varnish is affordable but doesn't last very long on your nails however I have only tried this colour from this brand so I cannot comment on the others!

Velvet Underground - Topshop

Ooh what a name! 

This deep, glossy, purple colour is a great alternative to black at this time of year.

And as I have mentioned above, Topshop nail varnishes are fab!

Just a tip, definitely put a base coat on before both of these Topshop nail varnishes.. I learned the hard way!! 

What is your go- to Autumn nail varnish?

Instagram Prints

Well I was having a chat with my grand mother the other day and I was showing her all the pictures from a recent trip to Berlin that I had on my iPhone. She was admiring them but passed a comment that it was a shame just leaving them on my phone. This got me thinking, in twenty years time will my pictures still be there, or will they be just stuck on an old computer somewhere? That's when I decided to get some of them printed.

I found a website called Printstagram from Zoella's blog a few months ago and I just really liked the idea! Basically on the website you can log into your Instagram and click the photo's you want to print, or even better, they have an iPhone app which you can pick the photos you want to print from your camera roll. The website and iPhone app are super easy to use.

I opted for the 24 4x4 inches Polaroid style photos which was $12 plus $10 to add another 24. Shipping costed flat rate $6. I was very impressed with the shipping, I ordered Tuesday night and it came today (Friday) and because I live in Ireland, I expected it to take about 2 weeks to get here but I was very pleasantly surprised!

Overall I am very impressed with this company and I will definitely be using their service again!

MAC Haul

MAC Haul
Hello Lovelies,

So today I went shopping, and what an exciting day it was. For so long i wanted to get a MAC eye shadow pallet and for so long and today I decided to take the bull by the horns and buy it! What was stopping me was the price, €18 for the palette and €8.50 for the insert? Ridiculous if you ask me but it is an investment that I know I won't regret.

As you can see, I got the MAC Pro Single Palette and three eye shadows!

The first eye shadow I got was 'Sumptuous Olive'. This is a gorgeous neutral shimmery green colour! I absolutely love green neutral colours on my eyes so I was sure to pick this up.

This is a cult favourite, 'Charcoal Brown'. It's just a gorgeous matte brown that is very versatile. 

Lastly I got 'Woodwinked'. Another cult favourite but I can't see why not! It's an amazing shimmery brown colour which i am very excited to use!

 Apologies for this being such a small MAC haul but it was big for me, as I am a student my spending was limited haha! Thanks for reading guys. What's your favourite MAC eye shadow?
