Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Crazy in Love
Charlotte Tilbury seemed to be the brand of 2014. From the Film Star Bronze and Glow to the Revolutionary Matte Lipsticks it just seems to be an all round, fabulous brand with incredible packaging. We've all heard of the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, a gorgeous nude lip liner however some of the other Lip Cheats in my opinion were pushed to the side.

For Christmas I received the Lip Cheat in Crazy In Love as a surprise. I never heard of it before and lip liners were never really my thing until eventually I rooted it out and gave it a whirl (haha oh look at me and my beauty blogging puns). After finding one or two MAC lip liners quite drying I was really taken aback when this was so easy to apply on the lips! It has a very creamy formulation and leaves a satin finish on the lips which lasts a surprisingly long time. As it is a beautiful reddish berry shade it goes perfectly under Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107, the cult beauty favourite. 

Even though I was sold on the CT Lip Cheats I couldn't help but notice one or two minor things that has room to improve. First of all I found it difficult to apply evenly on the lips but hey- that just could be because I haven't mastered lip liners yet (not even in the slightest). Make sure you exfoliate your lips first before using this but thats just a given before using them anyway.. The thing that annoys me about this product though is the packaging, you have to sharpen it so often. I'm just not used to that at all with products but I guess I'll have to get used to it!

Overall with this beautiful lip pencil, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and I can't wait to get my hands on some more Lip Cheats.. Or even the Revolutionary Matte Lipstick if I'm lucky!

Have you ever tried a Lip Cheat? What's your favourite lip liner?

Summer Fashion Haul

Summer Fashion Haul
As the days are getting warmer it is getting me more and more excited for Summer. In a few weeks (42 days precisely) I'm lucky enough to be jetting off to Florida with Lizzy and her family. I felt like I didn't need many new clothes but over time I have seemed to accumulate a lot of new bits that I thought I'd share with you today.

Can we talk about the Topshop sale for a moment, it was AMAZING! I went in on the first day of it about three weeks ago by accident and ended up with three items with over half the original price off and they are all things I had my eye on before. I got two tops which were originally €27 reduced to €10.  On the right the Scallop Frill Tee in black and on the left the Zip Back Tee in nude. Next I got this grey jersey dress with black lace on the shoulders. I'm not sure of the price because it didn't have a tag, but it is a gorgeous casual everyday dress that I'm sure I'm going to wear to death!
On to a bikini that I'm in love with, the Box Pleat Bikini in Navy. Not that I don't have enough bikinis already, I just had to buy it!

At the beginning of the month I was invited to the Boohoo #WeAreUs SS15 Preview (full post here) and afterwards they kindly gifted us a voucher to spend online for ourselves. I picked out a few bits for my holiday as they had such gorgeous summery pieces. I got the Charlotte Spaghetti Strap Crop Top* in black to pair with the Ellen Mixed Jungle Print Contrast Runner Shorts*. Again, a big thank you to Boohoo for providing me with these gorgeous clothes for my holiday!

Primark/ Penney's
One day feeling very motivated I headed up to my local shopping centre to raid Penney's for some new workout gear. Surprisingly I was very impressed with their selection of gear however their lack of certain sizes really restricted what I was able to get! I got these to capri length bottoms for €9 each, how great is that?! The grey marl ones were very similar to a pair I wanted to buy on Missguided Active but were always sold out.
I also got this blue and white slightly off the shoulder top. I really like this style and I think it would be really nice with some white jeans over the summer.
As for bikini's, I'll admit it, I have a problem but I'm in love with all of the bikinis I bought.

After realising that since the weather has picked up I wear nothing but my low white Converse, I decided to buy some slip on Vans. The ones I got were the Vans Classic Slip Trainers in white as they are so comfortable and easy to throw on with any outfit.

While I'm in Florida I really wanted a few pieces that I could throw on and be ready to go so when I saw this playsuit in H&M I knew it would be perfect. It is this jersey black playsuit, so comfortable for wandering around the parks during the day.

So that is everything that I bought over the last few weeks. Thanks for reading and I applaud you if you got down this far!
