Bodysuits under €20


Hello loves,
Bodysuits have been my go to outfit the past few weeks, they are just so versatile as you can dress them up with a skirt and heels or dress them down with jeans and runners. I wanted to show you some of the ones that I have spotted the last few days while online 'window' shopping! I know sometimes bodysuits can get way too over prices especially for what they are, so I wanted to limit this post to only bodysuits priced at €20 or below!

Current Playlist #3
Hello loves,

I haven't done one of these posts in months, even though that last few that I done were pretty popular!

I'm the type of girl that will listen to any type of music, I don't have a favorite genre. So this is basically going to be a mixture of hip-hop, rap, reggae, pop, country, house and who knows what else. Some old songs, some new songs, some popular and some not

Here is what I have been currently listening to:

1. Karsten - Like To Know

2. Drake - One Dance


3. Beyonce - Hold Up 
(Only available on Tidal)

4. Bryson Tiller - Don't 

5. Designer - Panda

What have you been listening to recently?

Moving Out?!

Moving Out?!
Hello loves,
Its been a hot minutes since I last blogged, the stress of college exams really got to me over the last couple of months but I'm happy to say that they are finally over!
Now I can focus on the fun stuff... MOVING!!
So recently I found out that I will be moving and I'm incredibly excited to start decorating, I've spent the past couple of days on Pinterest and WeHeartIt looking at home decor.
I think I have settled on a grey/black/white theme for the living room, I have yet to decide on the rest of the house but I'll keep you guys posted!
I'm going to share a couple of pictures that I grabbed from Pinterest just as an idea on what I was thinking.

10 Things To Try When You're Having A Bad Day

10 Things To Try When You're Having A Bad Day
Hello loves,

We've all woken up some mornings and just know that it's not going to be your day. Good news is that you can turn around a bad day with positive thoughts and things that make you feel good.
I have some things that I like to do when I'm having a bad day to try and perk myself up a little bit so I figured I would share them with you.



1. Listen to your favourite song
Pick your favourite upbeat, happy song and sing it from the top of you lungs. Nothing gets me in a good mood more than screeching a good song.

2. Call your best friend/s
Whats better than having a chat with you're bestie when you're feeling down? You can rant about your bad day or you can talk about something different to take your mind away from things.

3. Eat some chocolate
Dark chocolate works particularly well as it helps your brain release endorphins. Maybe just a square or two though.

4. Go for a walk
In my opinion there is nothing more refreshing then taking a walk on a sunny day (which we don't get much of here)

5. Watch a funny YouTube video
Silly cat videos always get me



6. Light a candle
This is a strange one but I always find a nice scented candle lifts my mood a little.

7. Read inspirational quotes
Pinterest is the best for inspirations quotes.

8. Pray
What ever religion you believe in, sometimes believing in something greater than this world can make you feel better.

9. Watch a funny movie
Kevin Hart anyone?

10. Have a bath
Just sit back and relax in a nice Lush bubble bath and let your bad day wash down the drain with the water.

What are your favourite things to do when you're having a bad day?

Louise, xo

Carli Bybel Pallet | Review

15:51 0
Carli Bybel Pallet | Review
Hello loves,



Today I want to talk about the Carli Bybel pallet, Carli is one of my favourite YouTubers, a couple of months back she launched a collab with BHComsetics.com and let me tell you now, I am honestly obsessed with this pallet.
It only cost me €12.50 as it was on sale, I think it still is so go grab it while you can! This palette comes with 12 eyeshadows and 4 highlighters.
Shipping to Ireland only cost about around €10 so it was really inexpensive to get it shipped from America.

The pigmentation of this is just incredible for such an inexpensive price, honestly when I heard Carli was collaborating with BH Cosmetics I felt a little disappointed as I never really thought of them as anything spectacular but they really blew me away with this pallet. The colours, the texture, everything is amazing!





It is definitely an everyday pallet that, I feel would be suitable for many skin tones and eye colours. It has plum/mauve/golden shades which look fab on many people. And don't get me started on the highlighters, those babies can sparkle!!
If you're on the paler side, like myself, you can use the darker highlighters as shadows and vice versa. It's definitely a perfect everyday pallet as it so versatile.

Also, can we talk about the packaging for a second? I don’t own anything like this. It looks so chic and sleek. It's also super easy to keep clean as you can just wipe it down when you're done.

I will have a YouTube video up using this pallet soon, I'll post the link when it's up!

Have any of you got your hands on this pallet yet? If so, what are your thoughts on it?


Love,

UD Naked 3 vs. W7 In The Buff

UD Naked 3 vs. W7 In The Buff
Hey loves, 
So about a year ago I done a video on my channel comparing Urban Decay Naked 2 and W7 In The Buff pallets, honestly I've never had a video reach so many people! It's gotten 20,000 which is crazy. Judging by that I'm guessing people like dupe videos so I decided to create another one using the Naked 3 and the In The Nude pallet.

Here is the video...



Let me know what you think of it and I hope you enjoy..

First Impression | Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Balm

First Impression | Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Balm


Hey loves,

A couple of week ago I was watching Shaanxo on YouTube, she was doing her night time skincare routine when one of the products she used caught my eye. It was the Trilogy Make-up Be Gone Balm, it intrigued me as you didn't need any water for it.

It comes in a round tub with quite a good amount of product in it, 80ml. It is a thick balm, sort of the same feel as petroleum jelly. The scent isn't too over powering which I love, it has mango seed butter which is a anti-inflammatory and will help against breakouts. It also has coconut and rosehip oil which will keep your skin nourished and hydrated.



So to apply, I took about a half a teaspoon amount onto my fingertips and gently started massaging it into dry skin, mostly focusing on the tough areas such as my eyes and brows, any places where there was waterproof makeup. The balm will soften and start to melt the make-up away, once I felt that it had broken down the tough make-up I took the organic cloth, which you get with the balm, rinsed it under warm water and then just wiped away the excess make-up and product that was left on my skin.

Straight after my skin felt super soft and I honestly have never found a product that removed mascara as well as this does. I can 100% see this being my holy grail product.

If you're a lover of waterproof mascara or even just notice that it takes quite a long time to remove you're makeup at night then I would definitely recommend giving this a try.
