That Blogger Life

I've been absolutely loving Polyvore lately. It's a fun and extremely easy way to create fashion collages like the one below. Its also great for shopping and gaining general inspiration. Theres a lot of designer pieces on there which I find myself drooling over constantly! All in all I think it is a great way to express your personal style and create looks without spending a penny, great for newbie bloggers on a budget!

Grammys Fashion 2014

So I didn't stay up last night to watch the Grammys as for me award ceremonies are long and largely uninteresting. However I do love to catch up on the whole, who wore what? was it drab or fab? type of nonsence which ensues. This year I was less than impressed with the fashion which lagged dramatically behind that of the Golden Globes in my opinion. Never the less here a few of my favourites, enjoy x

Though I have only recently started blogging myself I have had an interest in it for some time now. Over the past number of years I have came across countless numbers of fashion blogs and yet there are only a select few that I follow. I personally enjoy following bloggers with whom I share a similar style. I take much of my style inspiration from these bloggers and for that reason I wanted to share a few of my favourite blogs with you.

1. I Dress Myself

I first came across Yanin on her Youtube channel and subscribed without hesitation. Not only is her style simply flawess but she is beautiful and seems very down to earth.


2. Love Aesthetics
Ivania is pretty much the queen of minimalism. Her style is always on point. She sticks to a black, white and grey colour scheme which is totally up my street. She makes a lot of her own pieces and shares the DIY's on her blog which is great for those who are crafty enough to give them a go!


3. India Rose
I first came accross India's pictures on tumber and was captivated by her style which again is quite minimalistic but with a more urban twist. She wears very structured pieces and keeps to a monochrome colour pallet. Overall her look is quite urban-chic with an expencive feel that I just love!

So yesterday I made I very first purchase from lush. I have recieved some bath bombs as presents from there in the past but I had never purchased something myself from there. I had had my eye on the Love Lettuce Fresh Facemask for some time now and eventually decided to go ahead and pick it up. I have yet to try it out but I am very excited to as it claims to remove dirt and oil form the skin whilst softening and brightening it. What more could you want! I have tested a small amout on the back of my hand and i have to say that it feels somewhat rough (it's an exfoliant too) so it may not be the best choise for sensitive skin!
I also picked up the Dream Cream Shower Smoothie which I have tried before and absolutely LOVED! It acts as a sort of cleanser for the body removing any dirt and oil leaving the skin feeling truely clean! It doesnt have a very pungent smell just a slight hint of rose.
Lastly I picked up a eyeshadow brush from H&M just before popping into M.A.C to pick up a tester for the Studio Fix Fluid. I tried out the brush this morning and I have nothing but good things to say about it. It was super cheap, only €3.95, as far as I can remember! The brush is super soft and it applied the eyeshadow flawlessly. As it has a slight dome shape its great for using in the crease. I used it to create a brown smokey eye this morning and was more than happy with the results (please note that I am in no way skilled when it comes to makeup so creating a smokey eye with ease was somewhat of a miracle for me!!) As for the M.A.C testers I had the studio fix fluid before and was less than impressed! I was matched up to a NC25 which was far to dark and yellow toned for my skin. Never the less I continually hear great things about this foundation and decided I'd give it another try. A lovely girl called Jessy helped to match me to a NW13.  The shade is much better on my skin however I still feel that the foundation is still too heavy for my personal taste. It is a great foundation if full coverage is what your looking for. Just be sure that you get matched up correctly I'd recommend getting a tester beforehand and trying it out to see how you like it before investing!

Spring/Summer 2014 trends

I dont know about everyone else but I for one can not wait to say goodbye to winter. I personally hate the winter time, don't get me wrong I do love a good oversized coat and layering but winter in Ireland consists of cold rainy days that which get dark by 4 in the evening and I for one have had enough! I'm loving everyting that has been coming out for Springtime in stores at the minute. So heres a look at some of the trends that I feel I could totally incorperate into my wardrobe!
