The This or That Tag

Happy Friday everyone! :) Tonight I decided to do a tag , just to change things up a bit! I've seen this tag been done on so many other blogs so I said I would give it a go!
Enjoy reading :)

Blush or Bronzer?  I'm definitely a bronzer girl, I just way prefer that glowy sun kissed look to the face even in winter ! But I will wear blusher too
Lipgloss or Lipstick?  Lipstick! I only wear it when I'm going out, but I just imagine all lip glosses to be gooey and yock! Sorry all lipgloss lovers!!
Eyeliner or Mascara? hmm.. this is a tough one. Probably mascara as even if you don't have makeup on with just mascara I love how it just opens your eyes and makes you look awake. I love my eyeliner too but sometimes mascara is just much faster!!
Foundation or Concealer? Well this answer really depends on how well my skin is, so I'm just going to give an answer at present and say concealer because I love putting it under my eyes and the odd few spots! And you it kind of doubles as a foundation if its a thick formula 
Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow? Always neutrals for me! I never have the courage to wear coloured eyeshadow
Pressed or loose eyeshadow? Pressed! I bought a loose eyeshadow ages ago and spilt it, and it literally destroyed my carpet so I am never going back to loose!
OPI or China Glaze? I have never tried the china glaze polishes so I cant say anything, but the OPI polish I have is a gorgeous colour, easy to apply and lasts for ages!
Long or Short Nails? My nails are a bit of both, but when they get too long , they'll start to piss me off (don't ask me??!) and I'll just clip them!
Acrylic or Natural? I prefer natural , as I really don't like the feeling of the acrylic on my nails!
Bright or Dark? Oh god hmmm it depends on the season I guess??.
Perfume or Body Spray? Perfume! It lasts way longer !
Lotion or Body Butter? As my skin is dry, I love me some Body Shop Coconut Body Butter ! Keeps my body so smooth especially during the winter
Body Wash or Soap? Body Wash, Soap is too slippery haha!
LUSH or Other bath companies?  I used to buy a lot of Lush products but I've kinda been converted to Soap and Glory! The smell just made it for me!
Jeans or Sweat Pants? Because I'm still in school, its so nice to come home and just throw on a tracksuit pants and be comfy! I love my comfort!
Long or short sleeves? A bit of both! I like short sleeves for going out and long for the day!
Dresses or skirts? Another hard question! I have gotten more into wearing skirts, especially skater skirts!
Stripes or Plaid? Stripes! Only own a plaid scarf and I love it don't get me wrong but I would prefer stripes over plaid!
Flip Flops or Sandals?  Gladiator sandals , they are my summer staple! You can literally wear them with anything
Scarves or hats? I am the ultimate hoarder of scarves! Theres just so many nice ones out there! I would like to get into wearing hats though, especially beanies.
Studs or dangly earrings? I do have my ears pierced but I rarely wear earrings! I would say studs
Necklaces or Bracelets? Necklaces. Love the statement ones
Jackets or Hoodies?  As I said above I love my comfort, so hoodies! 


Curly or Straight? Curly hair hands down. My hair is naturally wavy, and I hate my hair straight ( it doesn't help that my straightener's broken) but I don't think straight hair suits me!
Bun or ponytail? Bun, my hair looks silly in a pony tail and I just find buns way faster!
Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips? Bobby pins! Even though I lose like all of them
Hair Spray or Hair Gel? Hair spray, I don't use it that much but its grand when I do!
Long or Short hair? Long without a doubt , I've learnt my lesson through out the years how much I miss my long hair when I cut it short
 Light or dark?  Light. My natural hair colour is a mousey brown and I hated it, so I love my blonde!
Side sweep or Full on fringe? Always side sweep
Up or Down? As I said I have long hair, so if it gets annoying I will always put it up, but the majority of the time down!
Rain or Shine? A bit of both, I love rain during the winter months because your inside and cosy but I love the sun during summer (whenever we get it here in Ireland!)
Summer or Winter? A mixture, winter because its my birthday and nice clothes and summer for the holidays and sun
Autumn or Spring? Spring. I don't like autumn at all because I know its the month of going back to school!
Chocolate or Vanilla? I'm presuming this is the food? Chocaholic right here!!
I know its a very long post, and ye probably will get tired of reading half way , but it was fun to do I guess, leave ye're tag posts down in the comments :)
Thank you :)

Winter Haul

Yesterday I went to town and bought some clothes for a change (I'm always buying cosmetics!!)  I love town at this time of the year, there's such a christmassy feel to it. So I just wanted to show you what I bought

1 and 2. I love cosy jumpers for winter as you can layer underneath and wear them with almost everything especially with these colours. I got the grey one in penneys for 14 euros and the burgundy in h&m for 14 aswell! 

3. I've seen so many people wearing those gold chains from penneys and I decided to venture out and buy one too. I actually got a different kind of one, it's still a chain but a bit more detailed I guess? I can see this chain is going to go with almost everything! Penneys for 5 euros

4. As the tartan trend is in for a/w , I wasn't brave enough yet to actually wear tartan clothes but just a more subtle way by having a good ole tartan scarf! I bought this in  Awear for 8 euros on sale!

5. I had actually bought this ages ago, but I couldn't resist showing ye! I just love it so much!! The colour is gorgeous and bright and the leather is so smooth. Aaand I bought in penneys for, I think 4 euros!

6. So many people rave about how comfy the topshop socks are so I decided to try them out and they are, wow! 77% cotton ! These are the frilly socks, they're navy with white polka dots and a black frill, for 5 euros in topshop

7.And finally ,everyone needs furry socks for winter, so I decided to stock up on them. So cosy and warm, 3 pack for 3 euros in penneys

Hope you enjoyed this post :)

L'oreal True Match Foundation Review

My friend let me borrow this the other day, as I was curious to see what was all the fuss about it ! It was in the colour N1 Ivory. This foundation is water-based in my opinion as it is so runny!!

I have dry-normal skin so I was hoping this would foundation would benefit my dry skin.
My first impressions was it was very runny and that it gave really good coverage! The formula is very easy to blend as it says on the bottle. When the foundation alone was on my face it gave a very dewy look to my face. After I set it with powder ,as I didn't want an overall dewy finish!
The lasting power of this foundation was good, I had it on for 6 hours without retouches and it stayed on well, apart from a few small patches around my nose and chin, but overall I was impressed! Here is a picture of me when I first put it on and then 6 hours later..

The thing I like about this foundation is that it is very lightweight on the skin, which is always something I look for in foundations.
The shade however was a bit too light for me, but when I put on a bit more bronzer it looked good! I wouldn't recommend this foundation at all to oily skin types , as I said it gives a very dewy finish.
Although this is a pricier pharmacy/drugstore foundation, I would definitely consider buying it for the summer!

October Favourites

Yaay its officially winter :D My favourite season! Here's what I've been loving last month!

1.Barry's Tea 'Very Berry'
I'm always just going for the regular tea, so I said I'd try something different. I've never liked the normal green teas, I find them very boring, so I found this and I am officially addicted!! A nice sweet taste to it and lovely and refreshing in the morning. Will be repurchasing!!

2.Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
I got this sample in an issue of Kiss Magazine. This is the new formula of the Stay Matte Foundation. Although it was far too dark for me, I was still very impressed! I wore it on an night out and it stayed on all night!! A very smooth feel to it and left me without shine.

3.Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer
Sorry if the concealer looks like milk, but its just the camera!! I had ran out of my collection 2000 concealer, and found this gem in my makeup box. Love it under my eyes, a nice sweet smell and a moisturising formula. I did a separate review on this , check it out! 

4. Bath and Bodyworks Candle 'Lakeside'
My friend went to America during the summer and brought me back this as a present. I was so so excited, when I saw the Bath and Bodyworks Logo, as I've seen so many American youtubers and bloggers rave about them! The scent is 'Lakeside'. A nice citrusy and refreshing smell, love lighting it in the evening, freshens up my room!

5.Clarins Water Comfort One Step Cleanser
My skin has been really bad the past month and I wanted to try something different. My aunt gave me this sample a while back and I never bothered with it too much! Well this really got rid of my spots and redness and took my makeup off very fast! There is also a subtle peach scent to it! Loved it
