Macklemore and Ellie Goulding

At lunch yesterday my friend asked what I was doing last night, when I shrugged she said she might be able to wing a ticket to Ellie Goulding and Macklemore. I'm a huge Ellie Goulding fan so I jumped at the chance! 2 hours later we were making our way to Marlay Park and got drenched in the rain! I haven't seen rain like it in a long time and found out the hard way that the "rain"coat I picked up from Penney's actually wasn't that rain proof...
After the rain thankfully stopped we got in without any hassle and surprisingly limited queuing! There was lot of drunk teenagers that only made me realise how glad I am to be over all of that! I never was an overly big drinker but for the moment I've gone completely teetotal. Regardless I had such a fantastic night dancing and enjoying myself! The place was packed to the brim and my shoes will probably never be clean again. I'm back in Marlay Park next week for Longitude and if this is anything to by it's going to be amazing. Unfortunately I only have tickets for the Friday and desperately looking for one for the Saturday but they're all sold out!
We were so glad the rain stopped, so we could really enjoy ourselves. It was absolutely crazy an hour beforehand and I thought we'd be miserable and wet for the entire evening but someone was on our side and it was amazing! It was just the two of us, so we got to have a good catch up and a lot of jumping and dancing around the place! Marlay Park is a really good venue for a gig. I'm probably only saying that though as it's less than a 15 minute drive to my house, so we got home without a bother! I also feel as fresh as a daisy this morning as well! Albeit a little sniffly, but I'm not too worried about that! I only found out in the later afternoon that I was going so It was a bit of a rush to get ready..
 As I was in a rush I literally hopped into the shower and grabbed a pair of my coloured jeans and decided to work my outfit around it. I added a black T-shirt some black runners and a quirky Parka that isn't at all rainproof and I'll be surprised If I don't catch my death ;) To funk up my outfit a little bit more I added a baseball Cap that I picked up years ago in River Island, that my friends said I'd never wear...BOOM. Ovbiously I'm too for cool for school so I rocked it back to front! Throw on an across the body bag and I legged it out the door!

My June Bath & Shower Favourites!

Another month's gone and another month I've been slightly absent! I'm working on it though, every time I think I'll have a few days something always comes up! Anyway I've finally gotten around to writing this post all about my most used Bath and Shower Products last month! I'm pleased as punch with some of them, while other's not so much...!
A sucker for pink and a deal I picked the Supermarket for €2! I've been using this now for over 4 weeks and still have loads left. It leaves my hair soft and looking for vibrant. It smells sweet, but not sickly and it lingers throughout the day. Friends have even commented on how much my hair smells, so this gets a big thumbs up from me!
This was also on a deal for €2 so I snapped it up, as I like to get the conditioner to go with the shampoo. It's light and doesn't leave any greasy residue. A little goes a long way and like the shampoo it smells amazing. If you're after a budget friendly Shampoo and Conditioner I'd really recommend this two products and will 100% be putting these in my trolly again!
In my last post I was totally blown away with the Colour Blends range but this was on sale for €4 and I decided to give it a go. It's grand. It's nothing to write home about, other than it smells divine! It does leave your hair somewhat soft, but I'm sure there's other's on the market that do a better job! Push comes to shove 6/10.
This was also on sale! I'm a sucker for a bargain and for €1.50 you can't go too wrong. I'm a huge fan of Radox and this smells just "clean" if that makes sense? It's lovely and light and definitely my favourite out of the range of  Radox shower gels! The only small complaint I have is that you do use a decent amount of product..
OMG, ignore the plan looking bottle this shower cream is amazing. It creates a million and one bubbles and smells gorgeous! It also comes with a nifty little hand cream which smells equally as nice. It comes in this big ass bottle too and will last forever! This is hands down my favourite shower cream. You can buy it from Mary's Pharmacy in Mullingar as well as online! 
As much as I'm obsessed with the Cocoa Brown "Tough Stuff" this scrub is perfect for everyday as it's not as harsh on the skin, but still does the job. Over all this is grand, my skin was left nice and soft. It's great for general use, but if I want to give my skin a good scrub, I'll forever reach for Tough Stuff! Like all Soap&Glory it smells yum and accompanied by on of their body butters, you'll smell good enough to eat!
Out of all the Bubble Baths I've tried, nothing beats Radox! I've tried them all at this stage and can't really choose a favourite. I've been working out a bit to get in shape for my big trip that I'm taking in the New Year (New Years Eve to be exact) and this is really helping my muscles and helping me sleep a little better. And for less than €2 most of the time you can't complain!
I found this beauty in my stash, that seems to be growing but not depleating, so I'm trying to finish all the products I have before buying new ones. This smells so yummy and sinks straight into your skin, leaving it feeling and smelling divine. Not the most moisturising lotion I own, but it's a great budget brand and looks slightly Soap&Glory-esque

What I Wore | Forever21+ Floral Dress

Happy Tuesday Guys!
Hope you're all enjoying this lovely sunshine we've been lucky to have. I've been soaking up the rays in my garden making the most of it, as we all know next week it might be raining cats and dogs.It's also the perfect weather to take outfit photo's in, so hopefully it will stay put as it would make my life a hell of a lot easier ;)
I'm going to make a concious effort from now on to take photo's of my ever day life and my everyday style. I read so many wonderful and amazing blogs in amazing locations with amazing outfits. I want to be as cool and as glamour as them, but who am I kidding! I'll never be, I'm just your average normal girl! I take photo's outside my house and my lovely dad snaps pictures! I'm off on a bit of a ramble now but I kind of forget why I started this Blog and I need to remember why I started. Sharing my love for fashion with y'all! As you've may have noticed my outfit posts haven't been as regular as they used to be, so I'm going to take quick pictures everyday and show you what I'm wearing whether it's exciting or not and get back into the swing of things! As always I'll also have heaps of beauty and skincare products thrown in for good measure.

Today was a gorgeous day and after working out I lay out in the sun and caught some rays! I'm on a health kick at the moment. Just getting healthy and making healthier choices. I'm off for a trip to Asia, New Zealand and Australia in 2015 and I want to be a fit as possible going. As carrying a backpack around the place won't be an easy feet! It's not to do with my appearance, more of how I feel. If any of you are interested in snip bits of what I'm doing (nothing drastic and definitely not a diet, just healthier choices and exercising more) let me know, as I'd happily share what I'm doing. Although this will never be a health and fitness blog, it's always going to be about beauty and fashion and that's never going to change. Anyway, here's what I'm wearing tonight. I'm off to my friends house for some food and a catch up. This dress is donkey's years old and from Forever21+ it's a great shape and everything about it I love. The sleeves, the empire cut and the print! I added sandals from Penney's again from donkey's years ago. To accessorize I opted for this amazing statement necklace my lovely friends bought me for my birthday last year. It's so amazing and I'm getting more and more obsessed with it. I threw my hair up and added some huge shades and I'm set to go!

Hope you all have a wonderful evening <3
