November Favourites

Since when is it December? Oh wow how this year has flown! Christmas, my favourite time of year is just around the corner and I cannot wait. Although November has been a hectic month I did discover a few new things as well as rediscovering an old love.

My first favourite is the L'Óreal Elvive Full Restore Conditioning Leave in Repair Spray, well isn't that a mouthful. The ends of my hair are very dry as I previously lightened the ends of my hair and this has made such a difference. Since using this product my hair feels fabulous and it really does make my hair look so much healthier. This is the first leave in conditioner that I have ever bought so I have nothing to compare it to however i really would recommend it!

Next I have a rediscovered love, my Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil in the shade Wheat. I use this on lazy days when I really don't have time to do my makeup (which is pretty much everyday). This does what it says on the tin really but I really have been enjoying it.

I may be late to jump on the band wagon, but this month I purchased the L'Óreal Telescopic Mascara. Everyone and their mother seems to have tried this so I said that I would give it a go. Length is what I need in my eyelashes and that is what I got with this product. Maybe it's because I have the stumpiest lashes ever but I don't think this deserves the raving reviews that it gets however it does give me some length.

Possibly my favourite beauty item of the month has to be the Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Lip Crayon in the darkest colour. I'm sorry I could not find the colour but its a beautiful berry colour. I never have the confidence to wear a dark lip day to day but I find myself wearing this everyday! You can build up the colour, it lasts a long time and it is not sticky, what more could a girl want?

Lastly, my only non beauty favourite of this month is the Irish TV series 'Love/ Hate'. I am aware that you probably have never heard of this if you live outside Ireland so I will give you a quick synopsis.. This series is basically about gangland crime in Dublin city. You may think that it sounds ridiculous and you would never like it, but honestly it has become my favourite TV show, full of thrills and laughs! It has got raving reviews in Ireland and to be honest it is the best show that ever came out of Ireland, plus Robert Sheehan is one of the main characters.. If that can't persuade you I don't know what can! I have been told that it's avalible in the UK and America but I'm sure you'll find it if you give it a cheeky search online.

My Holy Grail Skincare Products | Skincare Routine

Firstly, no I am not being sponsored by Simple (I wish), I just genuinely love these products.

Basically these products are fabulous, I never suffered from acne but any time I try another skincare product it makes my skin break out. My skin is slightly oily and my pores tend to be large on my forehead.

These products are so gentle on my skin and really do keep my skin clear. I use them every morning and night.

These products are very cheap and available at the drugstore and if you get them in Boots they are always 3 for 2!

After I use all of these wonderful products, I cover my face in Sudocrem, an Irish mammy's solution to all problems. I find that this clears up all my spots in no time!

Partner in Crime
Recently I have had a new buddy brought into my life and I thought that he was just too cute to pass up doing a blog post about him!

Yes I got a kitten! His name is Harry and he is 16 weeks old, I got him about a week ago from the DSPCA. Ahhh he's so cute, he's so playful and cheeky but I wouldn't have him any other way!

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, I have been extremely busy and I find it very hard to take the pictures for posts as by the time I get home it's dark.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo's
This week I have really been feeling the love for a certain product and you can probably tell by the title it is the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's! I recently rediscovered these in my makeup collection so I couldn't help myself, I had to do an appreciation post.

My first one is 'On and On Bronze' and it is my absolute favourite. A gorgeous metallic bronze colour that I believe should be in everyone's makeup collection! It's still very creamy, even though I have had it months now.

Secondly we have 'Permanent Taupe'. I really do like the colour pay off of this one and it is matte so I feel it looks much better in the crease. This one has dried out a bit more than 'On and On Bronze' however I will use this up to its dying day!

I'm certain that you have heard of these products before, but if you haven't already tried them, then please do! You certainly won't regret it. Next I plan on getting 'Pink Gold', maybe for Christmas if I'm lucky.

What colour is your favourite?
