Blog Blabber #3 - Positivity.



Hello lovelies, 
So recently I've been feel quite crappy if I'm being honest. I didn't want to get out of bed most days, I had no motivation to write any posts or film any videos. I would just lay in bed watching The Vampire Diaries, which is 100% okay but just not all day everyday. This also explains the lack of posts.

 I realized I need to get out of this slump but I just wasn't sure how. At first I thought it might be, yanno *whispers* women problems,*whispers* but it wasn't.
I started reading blog posts about how to keep motivated, they were all really great but I still didn't feel like they helped me very much.

I've come to notice when you're feeling down, no matter what you read, watch or hear from other people the only thing that can pull you out of the slump is your own mind.

YOU'RE the only person who can make you truly happy. You have to rely 100% on yourself to pick yourself up. Relying on others will do you no good, I'm speaking from experience here.




I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that when you think happy and positive you will feel happy and positive. If you're having a crappy day, go get some tea/coffee, go to a quiet place and just think about everything you have to be grateful for, think about everything you have going for you in your life and remember to just breathe. Sometimes a few little deep breaths is all we need to snap us back into reality.

Go take a long walk, go to the park, read a book, have a pamper session, just make sure you're spending time with yourself doing something you love to do. 
Sometimes we don't realize how hard we're pushing ourselves or how negative we're being. No one likes a negative Nancy right?


So the next time you're feel down and crappy, stop, take some time for yourself and just breathe. Because no matter how hard the situation, everything always works out in the end as as long as you keep POSITIVE & SMILE!!

Lovin' Lippes #1 : MAC Pink Pearl Pop

Good evening lovelies! 
Here is a quick little post on a new lipstick I discovered by MAC and figured I would share it with you. 

I was in duty free in Palma Airport, Mallorca and I noticed they had a MAC stand. I got extremely excited and dragged my friend over to it! (Who wouldn't right?)
I had some money left over from my holidays so I figured I would buy a new lipstick for summer. 
Usually I'm a nude girl all year round but I found this perfect bright pink color and just fell instantly in love.



I am unsure of when this lipstick came out. It is from the cremesheen collection and is a girly baby pink color. It is a warm toned color so it won't leave you looking washed out,  its not too bright either so it won't stand out too much on your lips.




It has a pretty sheer application when first applied but you can build up the coverage to what suits you. As it is a cremesheen it has a shiny, lip-gloss like finish to it which leaves your lips feeling moisturized. I do have to touch it up every 2-3 hours though which is a little bummer. I've been wearing this lipstick for the last couple of days and I'm loving it. It looks to summery on my lips.
It retails for €19 and is in my opinion totally worth the money!

The Summer Tag



I found this tag on Makeupsavvy.co.uk and thought it would be a bit of fun to do. If you answer these questions be sure to let me know in the comments so I can read your answers!

1. What's your favorite thing about Summer?
Most people would say the weather but I live in Ireland so it usually rains all year round, So I would have to say the freedom. Not having school/college and just beng able to sleep longer in the mornings is wonderful. Also being able to make plans with friends makes me happy.

2. Do you have a favorite Summer drink?
Not particularly, I usually just drink a lot of water all year round. I do like the occasional smoothing though.

3.  Is there a location you like to go to each Summer?
I usually go to Spain for a week or two in summer but we never go to the same location as the year before. 

4. Favorite make-up look for summer?
Something light and simple. I'm not into full coverage make-up in the summer. A simple BB cream, mascara and lipstick and I'm happy. 

5. Dresses or skirts?
I was never really into either of them up until this year so now I would have to say flowy summer dresses.

6. Sandles or ballet pumps?
Sandles all the way. I find them so comfortable and they can be dressed up or down.

7. Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down in Summer? 
Down most days unless it's incredibly hot out, then I will do a messy bun or a side braid.

8. Deep smokey eye or bold lips?
Ooh this is a tricky one. I love them both but for summer I would have to say a bold lip with a simple eye look.

9. Favorite perfumes for Summer?
Anything fruity just makes me so happy. I'm on the hunt for a new perfume so if you have any recommendations feel free to comment below! 

10. Favoite music for Summer?
Country music, I love it all year round. It puts me in such a chirpy mood and just brightens my day!

Review - W7 Chunky Lips Lip Crayon

Good evening lovelies, 
I mentioned on Twitter that I would be unable to upload a video today as I'm feeling unwell so I decided to do a blog post instead!




So I discovered the W7 brand a couple of months ago in a new Pharmacy that just opened. As soon as I looked at their products I knew that some were going to be dupes for high end brands.
I discovered these lip crayons that I thought might be interesting to use!




I picked up two colors, Glamorous the pale pink color and Sultry the dark pink color. If you have the brand W7 near you I would definitely recommend picking them up asap! They're so creamy, pigmented and the last forever! I wore the Sultry color out clubbing one night and I didn't have to top it up once, it lasted all night!!

I don't use a gloss over them either because I find that they are creamy enough to create their own sheen on your lips!


     
Glamorous                                                                                         Sultry


They retail for €2.00 which is definitely a bargain!! I'm going to go pick up every other color.... hehe.
You can purchase from selected stores listed here.

5 Workout's To Tone That Tush

Hey lovelies,
Yay, my first ever fitness post!! Let me know what you think :)
So I've decided to stop being a lazy hole and start exercising daily! My first priority is my booty, so here are 5 easy workouts that I will be using to tone my tush!


1. SQUATS!! - Girl if you want a cute booty you have got to work for it! And I would 100% recommend squats.. Does every booty blog you read mention squats? Yes? Because there the best workout for a round booty. They work your glutes and your hamstrings! Feet should be flat on the ground, shoulder width apart, back straight and toes pointed slightly out. Lower your body down, as if you're sitting into a chair until your thighs are parallel to the ground. But make sure you knees DO NOT pass over your toes. Rise back up slowly and repeat.




2. Hip Lifts - These are super easily but super effective! You basically just lie on the floor with your hands by your side pressed to the ground, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips to the ceiling, hold and release back down. Remember to clench your butt when lifting upwards.




3. Clamshell -  Lie on your side, bend you knees 45 degrees. Legs should be on top of one another and heels together. Raise your knee as high as you can without moving your pelvis or ankles. The return to the starting position.



.

4. Toe Tap - Again sounds easy but it really works! Lie on the floor with you hands pressed into the ground and knees bent so your thighs are perpendicular to the floor. Now slowly tap your foot to the floor and change foot.



5. Plies - These are similar to squats. Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart and your toes pointing out. Bring your arms out straight in front of you and lower into a squat, rise back up and repeat. Go as low as you can without letting your knees pass your toes, contact your glutes when lowering.





I AM NOT A FITNESS EXPERT!! These are just workouts that I like to do and that I find help me out. 



Hope this helped somehow! 
Thanks for reading,
