A new year or a new Liz Earle

I don't really see much of a point in New year resolutions everyone seams to give up after a while.
I after the age of 10 or so I decided it was not worth my time getting in a huff about first deciding on a resolution and then some how achieving it.

but this year I have one!

My skin is a walking disaster, and it is all my fault because I don't take care of it the way I should, and sleeping with make up on is my worst enemy. I have decided to do the 3 step regime using Liz Earle products that where kindly gifted to me. I will also be using Estee Lauder's Idealist (Pore Minimiser) to hopeful shrink those unsightly pores.

What new year resolutions do you have? Have you used Liz Earle before, what did you think of it?

Ho HO Ho!!

I would just like to say Merry Christmas to all my followers and I hope you have had a good day!!

Thank you all so much for following my blog over the past few months!


E.L.F Studio Brushes

Hello lovelies,

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

I never buy things on-line but when I realise I don't own that many brushes as I should, I decided that is was about time I got some. I chose to top up my depressingly small brush collection with a grand purchase from E.L.F. 


Well, its cheap and the quality is highly impressive for the price. 
I am really happy with this purchase because it has all the basics that I didn't have. 

I love how E.L.F have made it so affordable to buy make up bushes. I always find that you can buy as much make up as you can wish for on the cheap side but this is far from the case for brushes.

 I will be going into more details about the brushes I got and a few other things in a later post.

The New love of my life

Hello Lovelies,

This is well in order.
I bought a pair of the most amazing ankle boots.
At any given opportunity (bar heavy rain) I can be found in these boots.

What I love about these lil babies most is how  unbelievably comfortable they are. You can wear these with anything, even on a night out!! 

These are definitely my favourite shoe of 2011!

These lovely babes can be found in ALDO for €60'ish.  
They come in three different colours, black, grey and brown.

P.S They are on sale at the moment Here, do check em out!!

Brida Hair Inspiration

Hello Lovelies,

If you haven't guessed today's post is about hair.

Now I don't really pay too much attention to my hair. It kinda just sits there and dose its own thing. But since I have picked my head piece, oh i know what your thinking now, where is post? did I miss something? Don't worry you haven't, I will chat about that closer to the time.

Since about the age of 8 I have had short hair, my hair is so thick that its a bit of a pain to manage on a day to day basis with out ending the day in tears trying pull out knots. So short and sweet was the answer. 

But now, I think its time to bring back my long locks! Its past my shoulder now. I'm not sure how long I want it, but I guess it will keep growing it till I am happy with it or till the wedding and get extensions in or cut it depending on what the hairdresser thinks works better. Sounds like a bit off a waist, but between you and me I have always wanted long hair I just never had the patience for it but now is the best time because it's now a goal.

So now I end this post with inspirational bridal hair styles, Enjoy!

How old is too young?

Hello Lovelies,

"don't you think you're a bit too young?"
A lot of people seam quite shocked when they find out that I am engaged or my age (21).

After haveing a conversion with someone who is agenst marrage, it got me thinking, what do people really think of getting married so young? Do their opinions change once they know the couple or stay the same?

When I think of getting married I don't think of forever I think of here and now, I don't think many people could think of being married for the rest of their lives, regardless of the commitment made. Regardless of how negative this sounds I feel that humans can't really cope with the actual thought of a life time commitment?  It is natural to freak out about things in life and walking down the isle is definitely one of those fears. 

No, marriage is not something that should be taken lightly and I feel it should not be seen as being the "next step up". For some they may say it is "the next step up" by it actually meaning it feels natural and they simply work. Others It may be that they have been together for X amount of time and feel that this is the next course of action, I have seen people split up over this just to avoid the pressure from family and friends.

If we look back 20 or 30 years it would be perfectly normal for a young couple (18 + age group) to be married or have plans of marriage. Yes times where different but 20 years is not that long ago when you really think about it. 

When it was first announced to a few close friends some hinted towards the question 
of a bun being in the oven, this coming form people who are ment to be some of my closest friends.I am sad to say, it didn't shock me. It dose seam to be something people wonder about, you cant simply want to marry because you want to, No you have to be expecting. It seams there really is a lot of negativity around getting married young. It would put a lot of young people off or they would feel they would have to wait till they are at a socially acceptable age.  

This really got me thinking, and here are a few peoples thoughts on the subject, rangeing form people who know me well to not at all. With the questions: What do you think off people getting married young? and what where you're first thoughts when you found out I was getting married?

"I don't think I'd do it myself, but...I wouldn't say it's 'bad'.... - on marage at ayoung age - I think people should wait until their late twenties ideally, but it's all fair enough really."

"First I was wondering if you were serious & then happy for you"

"i think it went from wow shes young to cool she's found the right one for her so early"

"I thought it was crazy cz you are so young but then when you told me how like fast you fell in love and that you just "knew" I thought it was adorable! Crazy but so cute and nice!"

"My initial reaction was like "wow she's so young thats crazy" but the when you talk about it properly I saw how laid back and happy you were about the whole thing I thought it was lovely. And it's so nice that someone is actually getting married at the age our parents would have. Like 30+ is old to get married when you think about it! If you know that he's the one then why not?"

"Honestly, i was ecstatic! I felt such happiness for u! Now i feel the exact same way and cant wait to witness u getting married and spending the rest of ur life feeling the happiest u hav ever felt"

What these quotes have shown is that there is some stigma but it comes down to the couple if its right to get married so young not there age.

Frankly I don't think young couples who want to make a life time commitment should have to justify there choice to others.

What do you think? Is there a too young? Are people better off getting married at an older age? Did anyone else experience negativity when you decided tied the not?

Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Review

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
If you follow me on twitter you will know my camera charger has decided to go missing and I have been forced out of action for some time now. Hopefully it will pop up soon! So apologies for the lack off blogging.
I have never been a huge fan of the Vaseline's body lotion range. I always found it to bee far too sticky I think that's because that it never really soaked  into my sink properly which is something that has really turned me off using body lotions.

What they say:
This is what it looks like, thick cream and off white in colour.

I have noticed a small difference but I am still a bit iffy about this product. Would I repurchase?  To be honest I don't think I would, I cant stand using products that
make my skin feel sticky. If I was really stuck I would just because it is cheap.

 "Our new Vaseline Essential Moisture range has an improved, non-greasy formulation that absorbs quickly to leave your skin feeling soft and looking healthy. It's the perfect everyday body lotion that leaves your skin silky smooth - while its special ingredients care for your skin just the way it needs" 

What I think:

I had high hopes for this product because of  the natural benefits of using  Cocoa Butter and was excited about their stratys 3 formula. I thought it took too long to absorb. As the day went on I could really feel it on my skin. The weird thing is that when I put my cloths on it didn't stick, so that was a strange plus but the smell of the Cocoa lingered in the fabrics so that was also a strage minus. My skin doesn't really feel that must different but after asking a few people it dose look healthy and it feels some what softer. 

Have you tried this? Did you see a difference in your skin? Did it stick to your skin?
