My face primers

My face primers are a mixture of three products that come from various points along the price scale.
Lilly Cole Pearl Radiance Primer (15ml) retails at €20  from The Body Shop.
Essence My Base  (20ml) retails  at the lower end of the scale and will cost you  €4.79 and  That Gal  (20ml) by Benefit is the priciest of all three, selling at €31.

My make-up bases and primers

Since moving to Madrid I´ve found that it´s almost impossible to venture out into this heat without wearing eye-shadow primer. I´ve gone without a few
times and it wasn´t long before my eye-shadow was no longer on my eye lids!
I have a tiny selection of primers but they serve me well.

Catrice : Genius in a bottle

Genius in a bottle

Catrice is a brand that I've been using for years. It's a European brand and can often be found in Penneys/Primark, Superdrug, Boots and the like. 
I don't have that many Catrice polishes here with me in Madrid, I  left most of them at home. Most of my Catrice polishes are pastels. When looking at the bottle you can see a glorious mixture of bronze, gold and green and a hint of blue. I had an inkling that the colour  wouldn't turn out exactly like this once it was applied to my nails and I was right.

My eye-shadow palettes

Hello! I thought I would share my current eye shadow palette collection with you. I am a neutral colour girl at heart. I use my Naked palettes daily but I also have a lot of shimmer and eye popping colours  for when I am feeling that  bit more daring  with my make-up.

Review : KIKO Natural Cellulose Cleansing Sponges

''Set of 2 natural cellulose sponges for cleansing the face and removing face masks.

The soft, porous surface allows you to effectively remove traces of make up and mask residue, performing an effective exfoliant massage at the same time.''

Last March I purchased these cleansing sponges from KIKO. They are cellulose sponges -  cellulose is made from plant pulp. They are springy sponges and feel completely soft on the skin.

My thoughts on : Weightloss, clearer skin and mental health

Good afternoon guys, I'd like to start off this post by explaining to you that I am writing this with only the best of intentions, I am not out to criticize your ways of eating or anything like that or to make out that I am superior as I no longer eat dairy and meat. I am writing this post because I want to share my experience and hopefully help you out in some way. 
I know that vegans have a name for being pushy and I certainly agree with this. Most of them are and most vegans aren't even healthy. Yup thats right - being vegan or vegetarian does not automatically mean you are the picture of  health. There are many types of Vegans but I'll talk about that later. 
I ate a typical Irish (Western world) diet for 22 years - dairy and meat on a daily basis. For the majority of those 22 years I was plagued with flu's, sinus problems and carried excess weight. I had low energy in my teens due to the fact that I was eating utter trash everyday for lunch. My low energy level lead to low self esteem and instead of dealing with my problems I brushed them under the carpet whilst burying myself under my blankets  for the most of my time when I wasn't in school.

Too Faced : Sneak peek at the Romantic eye palette

I discovered Too Faced make-up when I was having a nosey around Sephora the other day. I didn't know anything about the brand or the product I was looking at but I decided to try it out and I am thrilled that I did!

''Smile for the camera sweetheart. I really wanna immortalize the moment'' OOTD

Craig and I had a few days off from school so we headed to Casa de Campo to relax and get away from the city for a while
