Beauty products haul!

Hey everyone :) Hope you all had a lovely summer! I'm back to school next week, but I've had a great summer and i'm ready to study! I might put up a back to school blog next weekend.
so today I'm reviewing and showing you guys the latest products I have bought!

Simply Sensitive (boots)
I decided to try this out, because i usually use the 'Simple' mouisturiser but i cant seem to find it anymore? I can online find a really small tub of new simple moisturiser that costs around €10, which i think is a bit much.
However this mouisturiser is SO good, it's basically the same as simple but its boots own brand. It smells really nice too, it has aloe vera in it.

Simply sensitive Face mask
I havn't tried this yet but i'm hoping its good! has anyone here used it before??

Rimmel match perfection foundation
I've only used this twice since buying it, I am very impressed with it. It looks really nice and natural on my face and doesnt really cake on the skin.

Essence gel lash and brow mascara
This is very good, i've never tried clear mascara's but i love it. I mainly use it on my eyebrows, it really does keep my eyebrows in shape which i love!

Like a Walk in the Summer Rain
This is my first purchase from the new essence perfume range. This was my favourite scent. It is really fresh and a perfect perfume for the daytime!

Essence gel look topcoat
This topcoat is really nice, it makes your nails very shiny after painting, however i found my nails were already chipping after one day!

Thanks for reading, and i'd love if you commented on your experiences with any of these products!

My everyday make up

Hey everyone! Hows everybody?? Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been unbelievably busy. The weather is absolutely amazing in Ireland, it's clear skies outside and it's meant to reach 26 degrees, YAY! I'll be outside sun bathing for the day.

So today i'm showing you guys what make up i use for an everyday look. Not too dramatic, just a simple and soft look.

Before i put any make up on i always use this moisturizer, I personally think it's the best. It dries into your face so quickly, It's also sensitive skin friendly!

~ Simple Moisturiser ~

I've had this foundation for quite a while, it's really good, it does exactly what it says on the packaging. It doesn't budge from my face all day no matter what the weather! However i dont think i'll be re purchasing this because it is quite heavy on the skin and you feel kind of clamy while wearing it.

~ Rimmel Lasting Finish, 100 Ivory ~

This powder is so nice! It's very light and keeps the shiny face away! Basic powder, and it's almost gone as you can see in the picture.

~ Rimmel Match Perfection, 100 ivory ~

Next is eyeshadow, at the moment i'm using one of essences duo eyeshadows. I love the very subtle brown shade. I think it's perfect for my everyday look, lovely and simple!

~ Essence eyeshadow, 12 SO-BEautiful ~

I reviewed this mascara in an earlier post, this is my favourite mascara! You can build it up on your lashes as much as you want or just do the one coat for longer looking lashes.

~ Benefit BAD gal Lash mascara ~

Lastly is the lips! I'm currently loving lip stains, I'm using lip stains everyday because they are so handy. You don't have to re apply them a million times a day. The only problem with lip stains is that they can be quite drying, so i use a general lip balm over the stain when it dries into the lips. It just prevents your lips looking very dry. This lip stain smells so nice!!

~ NYC 16h lip stain, 504 Orange on the Go ~

I'm looking for a new foundation, so what light inexpensive foundation would you recommend??

Thanks for reading guys, i'll be posting more posts soon :)

My favourite perfumes

Hey there followers! Just want to say a big thank you to all who have followed me these past few days, i love blogging! I've had a read through all of your blogs, and if i havn't followed your blog back from the BBU Blog Hop just let me know! :)

So today I'm doing a little collection post, these are all of my favourite perfumes! I don't have any prices because all of my perfumes were presents from friends & family!

Daisy - Marc Jacobs
This is my all time favourite perfume, I only got it because my name is Daisy and my sister thought it would be cool to have a perfume with my name on it, but not only do i like the name i love the smell! It's almost gone so I'll have to buy some more of it! I love the bottle, it has 3 Daisy's on the lid.

Live - Jennifer Lopez 
 In my opinion this perfume is more of a daytime perfume, it is quite sweet smelling. The bottle looks really cool, it has purple,green and yellow dots of colour around it, Jennifer Lopez is also written at the top of the bottle.

Flowerbomb - Viktor Rolf 
I adore this perfume, i think it smells like sweets or candyfloss! It smells so good. The bottle is quite simple but nice!

Coco Chanel - Mademoiselle 
This smells devine!!!! This is a perfume i don't use too often because of the price of it, it is quite expensive but so nice! It can be a daytime or nighttime perfume. The bottle is also simple but nice to use!

Curious - Britney Spears 
I use this perfume quite a lot, it's not too over powering, it's a very light perfume but i love it for the daytime!

Lush Solid Perfume - Love 
I've only got this perfume recently and it's so nice! You just rub it on your wrists and neck and the scent stays for the day! The great thing about solid perfume is that the packaging is small so it's easy to throw into your handbag. Like all Lush products it's organic.

Thanks for reading! Would you recommend any perfumes??

Music makes the world go around..

From a young age I've been so interested in music, it's just something I cant live without! I've been to so many concerts and musicals. So, just now I've decided to write a little about musicals. What can i say? musicals are a big part of my life, they make me so happy, i grew up listening to songs from musicals, so i know a lot about them, I'm addicted!!

Mugs and Programs!

I have been to London's west end (London is my favourite city) almost every year since I was 11. That's 6 years I've been loving musicals! Wicked has to be one of my favourites! I've seen that 3 times and plan on going to see it again next year. The costumes are amazing, the songs are so catchy and the story-line is so interesting! I know every song from wicked, i nearly know all the lines by now too.

Musicals/plays i have seen- Wicked, The Lion King, Annie, Oliver, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dream Coat, The Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music, Three Days of Rain, and Billy Elliot. I think i'm missing one, but i can't think of the name of it right now haha!

Going to the theatre is so exciting, it's like an adventure, the theatre's are quite old and historic! It's so great to think that so many plays and musicals could be played in one little theatre! Also, after a show you can go to the 'stage door' and meet the actors/actress's, they are so lovely! You can get autograph's and pictures! I've met James McAvoy, Gareth Gates, Oliver Thompsett, James Gillan and so many more people. If your reading this your probably thinking 'who are they?' ..I think their cool! I guess music is my hobby! I can read music, play music, listen to music and go and watch music being performed.

My autograph book, little book of memories!

Thanks for reading this! 

whats your favourite thing about music? and would you reccomend any musicals???

Jewellery Haul

Hey guys! I still have no followers, so i could really just be talking to myself here everyday, oh well! Maybe someday i'll get a couple of followers! :)

Today I'm doing a small jewellery haul! I've bought quite a lot of jewellery lately so i thought i'd show everyone what I got! This isn't all the jewellery i bought, I'll be doing a separate haul post soon with more of the jewellery included!!

Forever21 necklace ( €3.99 ) i love this necklace, i think it's very vintage and cute! The little pearl in the centre of the flower is very simple. I think this necklace will go with almost anything i wear!

Forever21 earrings ( €1.99 ) these earrings are a statement piece. They are very dramatic but i do love them! In this picture it looks like there is a stone missing from the one on the right but there isn't, it's just the light reflecting! 

Topshop Cross earrings ( €1.50 ) these are one of my favourite earrings, i think they are so simple and really pretty! I love pearls! They are also quite small so they aren't too dramatic.  I thought €1.50 was also quite a bargain!

Topshop Lizard earrings ( €3.50 ) they look like expanders but they're not! These are so cute and very unique! i fell in love with these earrings the second i laid my eyes on them!!

Topshop bracelet ( €2.50 ) this bracelet is bronze with crystal studs. i really like this because it is very effective even if worm on its own or with a bunch of other bracelets. I wear this bracelet all the time because it suits every outfit! 

So that was just a small haul of jewellery i recently bought!! Thanks for reading! check out my other blog posts! :)

My favourite Eye Liners!

Hey everyone, sorry for the bad quality photo's!!
These are 3 of my favourite eye liners that I think everyone should try out!

First eye liner is 'Essence; Eyeliner Pen' this only costs around €3 and it's such a great eyeliner. It's like a felt tip marker and it also lasts a very long time. This eyeliner is very good for precision and you can do a very thin line or a very thick line, depending on how you want it!

Second Eye liner is 'Benefit Bad Gal waterproof' this is a pencil liner. It is a great eye liner for your waterline and for creating a smokey eye! It has a smudge brush (as I call them) on the end for creating that smokey look. I'm not sure how much it costs as I got it as a present.

Last eye liner is 'No.7 amazing eyes pencil' in '05 black'. Again, this is a pencil liner which I use for a smokey effect. It isn't that good on the waterline of the eye because after blinking a few times it just looks grey and is nearly gone! But this is a really good eye liner and it's really smooth on application. This also has a smudge brush!

What eye liners would you recommend?? I'm also looking to try out a gel liner so any recommendations would be really appreciated!

Benefit Products!

Hey everyone, I'm still a bit rusty at writing reviews, but I'[m really enjoying it! I think it's quite fun and it's also improving my writing skills! I dont know how to get people to follow my blog though?

Anyways, i'm a bit of a Benefit addict! I think their make up is just so good. I'm going to do a review on 2 of their mascara's and their 'Benetint' lip stain.

First product that I am reviewing is 'Bad Gal Lash' mascara, this is one of my favourite, must have mascara's. It gives amazing volume to your eyelashes and makes them look really long! The brush is nice to hold, and it is quite big which, as i already said, gives amazing volume!! When i'm using this mascara i swirl the brush as i'm putting it on my eyelashes to get lots of mascara on and it really defines your eyelashes. It is a great beauty item to have, i would really reccomend buying it as i myself have bought 2 of these since January 2012. It lasts quite a long time considering I use it at least 5 times a week!

The second mascara i am reviewing is 'Bad gal Lash; Waterproof' mascara. I was so excited to try this, however when i did get it i was a little bit disappointed! The brush was small and the actual tube is quite small too. It doesnt give my lashes any volume, all it really does is darken them. I wont be buying this mascara again. It is waterproof so i only really use it over my other mascara to stop it running. It is a very good waterproof mascara for a casual everyday look, which is what i'm currently using it for.

Last Benefit product i am reviewing is 'Benetint' lip & cheek stain. This is one of my favourite lip products. it is exceptional and so worth using, I only use this on my lips as i have naturally red cheeks even with foundation on. All you have to do is dab it on your lips, maybe 3 times, and gently blend it into your lips. It leaves a beautiful, natural pink lip. I would reccomend using a light lip balm over this tint because it can dry up the lips slightly! Another thing i absolutely adore about this product is the amount of time it lasts, i can go the whole day without topping up my lips, the colour stays! I just love this product!

Thanks for reading, I'll be doing more reviews soon! What are your favourite benefit products??

TOPSHOP.. short review

Hey guys,
This is just a quick and short review on another purchase I made. I bought Topshop ''leigh super soft skinny'' jeans.. These jeans are SO comfortable.. there's nothing worse than buying a pair of jeans and feeling like a robot while wearing them, you want to be comfortable!
I bought these charcoal coloured ones, you can also turn up the ends of these jeans! 
They are €58, which is quite expensive, but they are really worth it

So i would really recommend buying a pair of these, they are totally worth it and are great quality! It feels like your wearing jeggins, they are really stretchy and fit like a glove! 

Comment below if you would recommend any other jeans from Topshop or any other shops that you thought were great!

Lush Review..

Hey guys,  this is my very first review!
This week I went up to Dublin City for a little shopping spree. Everytime I'm there I pass this shop called 'Lush' just near Grafton Street. The smell coming from that shop is just amazing, but i never went into it! However, I finally decided I would go in and have a little look around. When I got into the shop i just wanted to buy everything!! They have so much beauty and skincare products that smell amazing. Lush is also against animal testing and all of their products are completely organic! which is a great bonus!!

What i bought -  

This is a bath bomb called 'Space Girl' it smells gorgeous! It is sherbet sweet scented and kind of smells like lemons. It's just a basic bathbomb, it fizzes up and it has a few sparkle's too! Smells devine and i'll definetly be buying another one of these next time i'm there!
Price- €2.75

now, THIS has to be one of the best things I have ever bought! It is a Shampoo Bar called 'Jumping Juniper'. It smells like lemons & rosemary, really nice! Your hair feels so clean after using it. This particular one is for oily hair, I used to have to wash my hair everyday and now i can go 3 days without washing it. It is a great buy. There are loads of different ones you can get depending on your hair type! And this little bar is worth 3 bottles of shampoo, so it will last ages! 
Price - €7.90

So that's my review of the Lush products I bought, next time i'm in Dublin I will definetly be getting more Lush goodies! 
Comment below and let me know if you recommend any other Lush products and what you thought of them, and if you have never went to Lush, i would recommend going!! It's now one of my favourite shops.

Thanks for reading! and please don't be afraid to comment!
