Hello my Lovelies

Welcome to today's post, i hope you are all having a lovely day so far. How was everyone's weekend I hope you all had a lovely one!! I had quite a busy weekend, on Saturday I ended up going to Lunch with a friend which was really nice, we went to a pub call The Bridge Tavern which does the most lovely food!! Then early on Sunday morning I went to get my Lash Extensions done with Linda from New Look FX, I am in love with my new lashes i can't seem to get enough of them. I will be doing a review on them in tomorrow's Beauty Tuesday post!! So make sure to check it out!! On to today's Makeup Monday post and I was supposed to have got this post up a couple of days ago but i was feeling a little under the weather and didn't get around to posting many blog posts last week, but i'm back in full blog work mode now!!

So today's post is all about November's Glossybox which i received last week. This months box looks really good with some amazing products!! Without further a do, i give to you all November's Glossybox!!

So like always once you rip the seal of the outer packaging,  this months box design is reveled which is just a normal pink Glossybox this month!!

Then by popping the lid, November's Glossybox is then revealed, and i do have to say this months box looks a really good one with quite a lot of Makeup products in it to try out!!

First up is of course this months Editorial Piece which is written by Editorial Director Evie Leatham and this month its titled 'Lipstick to Lashes', which can only mean that we can expect some Make-up products in this months box!! 

With it been November it means we are just a month shy of party season which of course is Christmas, so with this month products it looks like we will all be gearing up to it in style with some rather nice products to try out and give us all a real glamorous look!!


So without further a do.....the first product out of November's Glossybox is these EYLURE NATURAL VOLUME LASHES which provide a 'subtle boost in volume and length that even beats mascara!! Now i love the sounds of these lashes and can't wait to try them out for a night time look!!

Full Size: £5.00


Next up i got this REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK in the shade Nude, I like the shade but i'm more of a Red Lipstick girl because of been really dark i find a red shade really stands out especially coming up to party season. This is one of Revlon's best selling lipstick shades which are infused with vitamin E and Avocado Oil to hydrated those lips. I have used Revlon's Lipsticks in the past and I absolutely love them so I can't wait to try out this shade!!

Full Size: £7.99
Shop: Boots


The third product i received in this months Glossybox is this travel sized EMITE DIAMOND HEART PRIMER. It states that this Primer is a great base and it is of a lightweight formula. The peachy fluid balances your skin tone and boosts radiance to create a smooth finish before prepping your skin for a day look or a night-time look!! I can't wait to try this primer out on my skin as I love using primer before applying my favorite foundation whether its for the day time or night time!!

Full Size: £25.90


Next up is this delicate scented body cream from ROYAL APOTHIC which has lactic acid that provides gently smooth skin. It also helps hydrate the skin so that it stays super soft especially now that we are in the colder months where we need to keep our skin hydrated at all times!! I love using body creams so i'm looking really forward to trying this out on my skin!!

Full Size: £14.50


The final product i got in November's Glossybox was this MUA Makeup Academy Eyeshadow Palette which i have to say is AMAZING!! Basically its a palette that is combined from work day Nudes to smouldering Metallics. 

This is one of the most gorgeous palettes that i have seen in a while where it looks like a 'chocolate box' of eyeshadows all waiting to be tucked into!! There is a mixture of 12 shades that combine of Nudes and Dark Shades, so whether you want to achieve that Natural day time look or that Smokey Night-time look, guess what you can with this amazing palette!! 

What also sticks me about this palette is that the pigment in the shades are really good especially the darker shades!! No doubt I will be creating a wide variety of looks using this palette!!

Full Size: £4.00

Hello my Lovelies,

First and foremost, i would like to start off today's post with a tribute to the people who lost there lives in the events that unfolded on Friday Night in Paris. I would like to send my condolence and prayers to the Family's and People effect by this awful tragedy.

Paris you are Beautiful. 
You are Proud and you are Strong. 

Hey guys and Welcome to today's post I hope you are all having a lovely day!! How was everyone's weekend , I hope you all had a nice one. On Friday evening I went into Dundrum to do a little shopping and went for a lovely meal too. We went to a restaurant called 'Dante' which is an Italian Restaurant which specialise in some rather gorgeous Italian Cuisine. For Stater's I had some Chicken Goujons with Garlic Mayonnaise dip. Then for my Main Course i had a Margarita Pizza with Sweetcorn and Chicken on top and a portion of Italian Fries. Then for Dessert I had a Kinda Bueno Milkshake from the ShakeShop which was yummy!! So overall i had a really good evening out, It was like an overdue Birthday treat as I didn't get a chance to go out over my Birthday.

And talking of Birthdays, for today's post I'm going to share with you all what i got for my Birthday which was last Sunday!!

So before I start off  with the pictures and all i firstly want to point out to you all that I am not showing off in anyway as to what I got given for my Birthday. I like reading these types of posts and I just thought i would share with you all what i got!!

So the first gift i received was this beautiful Beige/White Purse which is from Dunne Stores. It is of a Beige Color with White detail on either side of the purse along with a a Gold Bar detail across the front of it.

It has a lot of space to hold all my cards and money in with three dividers and a zipped pocket where i can keep any loose change i may have!!

Next up i got these gorgeous Beige Pumps with Gold detail to the front. These are a lovely natural shoe to wear with there nude color which will go well with any outfit.

I love the gold detail at the front of the shoe which looks really expensive. Also the pumps are fitted with a foot cushion on each of the shoes which is to the bottom of the shoe that helps if you suffer with soreness to the underneath of your foot including the ball of your foot which is positioned to the top part!!

I also got given the Aurora Band by Lindsey which is a Night Roller that you can leave in your hair over night and by the morning your hair will be curly. I'm not going to go into to much detail on this product as I'm planning on doing a Hair Tutorial using this Night Roller which is coming soon to the blog.

Next I got given this Baylis & Harding Aromatherapy Sleep Skin Spa Set which consists of a Lavender & Bergamot Shower Body Cleanser and a Rich Intensive Body Butter Cream.

I love using Lavender Fragrances just before bed so I can't wait to try this out!!

I also got this gorgeous Vintage Canvas Bag from my mum which has Mondes de Paris written on it including a number of fashion images designed on the bag.

Next I got my main present which was this gorgeous Tote Handbag which is from Papaya, this is a beautiful pattern designed bag which is in this lovely Apricot Color.

It also has a lot of detail including some gold plated design's around the handles and a gold plated 'O' design to the front of the bag.

The handles are also sturdy with them been designed using that gorgeous Aprocot colour.

Then inside of the bag there is a zip that opens up the bag to a lot of compartments, including the one main compartment, then  a separate one that comes with a zip then 2 smaller compartments to the side of the bag which is handy for keeping your purse and phone in. Then to the very back on the right side there is a small compartment which is ideal for keeping your driving licence in.

I love this bag, it is so ideal for bring to work with me or if i'm going on a night out!!

I also love the color of it too as its a bag that will go with any outfit!!

Another gift i received was a 20 euro voucher for Boots, a box of Lindor chocolates from Lindt and this Body Souffle from Ted Baker (which i can't wait to start using).

I also got given this cosy Lounge Socks which are from Dunne Stores.

And finally I received more vouchers which are from Penney's and Boots!! Most defiantly i'll be keeping them up until i start my Christmas Shopping.

Of course i also got some beautiful cards as well including some small Cream Birthday Cupcakes which were really yummy (as to why there is no pic of the cakes) Ha!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's blog post, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It was my birthday over the weekend, so i got quite a few presents including a new bag which i will be sharing with you all in my 'Birthday Blog Post' later in the week!! Unfortunately I didn't do quite a lot as it was on a Sunday and it was a complete wash out with the weather here in Ireland, so i decided to spend it with my family by having a quite Sunday Lunch. Anyway moving on to today's post and as you can all see from the title above i am going to share with you all this review on New York's Color Primer which i have been raving about for the last couple of months!!

I have been a big fan of NYC Products for the last year in a half or so, from their face-care to their nail-care i have tried the lot, but one product that i recently picked up which has just kept me going back for even more is there 'Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer; which i have been using everyday underneath my favorite foundation!!

NYC (New York Color) Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer is an affordable primer which is perfect for any skin type. Once you have applied this too your face it instantly revives dull looking skin and gives your skin a healthy looking boost of radiance which now and again your skin really needs!! It also leaves your skin super smooth and very moisturised throughout the day!!

This product comes in a standard squeeze tube which is quite handy as it can fit in your everyday makeup bag!!

Then once you squeeze this product out, there is quite a lot of shimmer to this primer along with its white consistency.

At first i felt this primer looked a little too white for my liking but once it is massaged/rubbed into the skin it blends in really fast and leaves your skin with a shimmer/illuminating look to it, which i feel is great priory to applying your favouite Foundation.


Before i share with you all my thoughts on it, firstly i do want to highlight to you all that i have been using this product on a regular basics such as applying it to my face before i head to work and if i was going out on a night-out!!

So usually if i was heading out to work on a normal day, i would firstly start off with my morning routine of washing my face with an exfoliator and then moisturising using my favorite moisturiser. With all that done i would then apply a genourise amount of NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer to my face gently massaging it into my face.

I then blend into in my skin just like a moisturiser making sure that every part of face including forehead, eyelids and neckline is fully covered. Overall it leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft, plus it also leaves it with a nice shimmer too!!

Next i then apply my favourite foundation which is Maybelline Better Skin Foundation in the Shade 004 Nude to my face using my blending sponge as i find this perfect for applying my favourite foundation!!!

Then I apply the rest of my makeup to my face!!

Overall i love using NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer on my skin. I feel this is a really good Primer to use under my skin just before applying foundation!! Also with it been so affordable it really does work considering how cheap it really is!! As i mentioned above I have been using this for over a couple of months now and i love using it in my everyday makeup routine, it feels super soft on my face once i have applied it and it also leaves a lovely shimmer look to it too!!
Throughout the day/night time it lasts very well as my makeup doesn't appear to move or fade from my face. Generally before i head on a night out i like to apply a double layer of Primer just so my makeup lasts throughout the night as with heat and humid air your makeup can rub or disappear quite easily.

I hope you guys enjoyed my post on this 'Review of New York Colour Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer'!!
