My Favourite "Nerdy" Bits 'n' Bobs

As a self proclaimed nerd I find it incredibly difficult to resist merchandise from my favourite TV shows, movies and books. As a result of this I have amassed a bit of a collection of merchandise, accessories and clothing containing logos, pictures and references to these favourites of mine. I thought it would be fun to put together some of my absolute favourites and show them to you guys.

Top Makeup Picks for Summer: Lipsticks

I've decided to do a little series of my top picks in makeup for the summer months, I'll be including eye, lip and face products but won't be including foundations, concealer, mascara and face powder as I tend to use the same products throughout the year.. I've separated lip products into lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, and glosses, today's post will focus on my favourite lipsticks. I've narrowed the list down to my five absolute top favourites.

Current Favourites

So, I've been away for a (long) while, but let's not dwell and that and just concentrate on getting back on track. As I missed last month's favourites post I've compiled my favourites for the past two months for this post. I actually don't have too many new favourites so this will be a pretty short post, but nevertheless let's get on with it.....

Video: Go-to Makeup Look - Spring 2016

Today I wanted to show you my go-to makeup look at the moment, but realised it would be a little difficult/time consuming to do that as a long blog post or in a series of pictures. So, in order to make it a little easier for me and more enjoyable for you I decided to film it as a video.This post is also to make up for the lack of a post on Wednesday(Study and camera problems slightly hindered the blogging process), So, I hope you enjoy a little something new please make sure to leave feedback, I'd be extremely grateful.

20 Questions Tag!

Since my throwback tag I decided to do one tag post for month as a way for my readers to get to know me a little better. I find these tags really fun to do and it's an easy post to do in advance, giving me time to concentrate on the rest of  my monthly posts. Please let me know in the comments if you enjoy these kinds of posts and with any ideas you might have for what tags I should do next.

Spring Must-Haves: Shoes

I'm beginning to feel like Spring has finally sprung in Ireland, or at least it has started to. Knowing Irish weather though I'll be completely proven wrong with a rain shower tomorrow. However, despite the weather I have been slowly but surely incorporating more Spring items into my looks recently. I'm considering making Spring must-haves into a little series but I'm going to begin with my favourite items which are of course Shoes.

March Favourites!

As it's the first post of April, I am of course going to be sharing my favourites for the past month. I've been wearing makeup more again this month so there is a mix of beauty and fashion items for my March favourites. I've also included a couple of random favourites that I've been loving recently.

So, on with the favourites....

Collective Haul

I've done a little bit of shopping over the past month and as I love hauls, I decided that today I would share my recent purchases with you. I usually tend to buy a lot of makeup when I go shopping but I actually seem to have focused more on fashion this month with only a couple of makeup items. Although looking at my previous haul that must be a running theme this year. I'm going to begin with fashion and leave the makeup until the end.

Two Super Simple St. Patrick's Day Nail Art Ideas!

As St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow I thought I would share my little way of showing my Irish pride without dressing head to toe in green. These two nail art ideas are super quick and easy, and if you change the colours would suit any time of the year.

Bonus Post: A trip to the beach-Pictures

Today was unusually sunny here in Ireland so my friends and I decided to head to the beach. I, for once, remembered to bring my camera and took a couple of pretty pictures. So I thought I would pop on here and share them with you as a little bonus post.

Those are all the pictures I took, and I really love them, I'm definitely going to start bring my camera with me more often.

Makeup Revolution Wishlist

One of my absolute favourite beauty brands is Makeup Revolution. As a college student I don’t have a large income and so can’t afford to splurge on high-end brands, Makeup Revolution provides budget friendly yet great quality products. They also dupe many high end products, for example their I Heart Chocolate palette is a dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. As affordable as this brand is however, I still can’t buy every product I want at one time so I compiled the top ten products on my wish list for my next Makeup Revolution purchase.

What's in my Makeup Bag?

I love watching/reading ‘What’s in my Bag?’ videos/posts and I thought it would be fun to share my own. I usually keep my makeup in a drawer at my dressing table so today I’m going to talk about what I put in my makeup bag when I go back home for the weekend.
Let’s get started!

Firstly the makeup bag I currently use is the Zoella Beauty ‘just say… Yes’ bag. I love the size of this bag as I can fit all my products and tools, but it’s still small enough that it doesn’t take up too much space in my bag.

February Fashion Favourites

I didn’t wear very much makeup so I have no stand out beauty favourites for the month. I am getting back into doing my makeup again though so I should have some for my March favourites.  For that reason I’m just going to be talking about a few of my fashion favourites in this post.

My Top 5 Beauty Tools

Some of the most important things in an any make-up lovers collection are their tools. To achieve that flawless complexion, perfectly sculpted cheekbones or a perfectly smoky eye the tools are just as important as the product itself. A bad brush can be the difference between a sultry smoky eye look or a black eye. With that in mind I'm going to talk about my top five beauty tools I just couldn't live without...

Born Pretty (eBay) Nail Art Plates Review!!

I mentioned on Twitter that I might feature these on my blog a while ago and now I'm finally getting around to it.
I've been getting more and more into nail art in recent months, however I found it very difficult to get a design I was happy with using a brush or other nail tools. So, when I spotted these plates on eBay I decided to give them a try and I was not disappointed.(I'll leave a link below to the set I purchased along with a link for the stamper and scraper.)

The set I purchased contained 10 different plates and cost me about €6, they are also sold individually for about €1 each so it worked out better value for the set. There are many sets to choose from but I decided on this one just because it was the one that appealed to me most, I definitely plan on picking up a few more though.

January Sales Haul!!

I thought I would start this year by trying something new: Blogging. I have no idea how this is going to go, but I definitely want to try it out and I think I'm going to enjoy it.
So, as it's January and I love shopping, I thought I'd begin my blogging with a January sales haul. This isn't a  large haul as I was a bit late to the sales so I do think I may have missed out a little. I must say though that I'm happy with what I found and it's much better for my bank account this way. 
So, on with the haul:
