Garnier ultra lift challenge Update



So I have finished the Garnier Ultra Challenge. It has being a while back since I started the challenge. I did it for 2 weeks. I was sent the the day cream to try out but I use Suncream every day. I didn't wanna put any more stuff on my face so I used it every night before going to bed.


Pro's and Con's 
I found that it made my face a bit on the greasy side the next morning and I wasn't a fan of this. 
I didn't notice any difference with wrinkles around my eye area but saying that I am not to bad with Wrinkles.  
It did make make my face nice and soft so that was nice.


I probably wouldn't buy this product because I don't think I would benefit from it. Maybe in a couple of years!! 


Have you tried this challenge?? what did you think??

Softsole Foot Peel





I am currently trying out the Softisole Foot Peel. Well not technically trying. I started the process last night! I did the patch test 48 hrs before. If you haven't heard about it. Its a foot peel to remove dry cracked skin and soften calluses. I don't have bad feet but I was dying to try it out since my feet hadn't being the best since wearing wellie's during the summer. I thought I would give them a treat!!

1st step is wash feet and take off nail polish
2nd step apply Softsole foot wraps (its like a foot shaped plastic bag) and there is socks to use to keep the wraps on and that if you need to walk.
3rd step wait 120 Mins (stick on a good film because it can get boring)
4th step wash feet and in 3-7 days peeling will start to happen, It says that it take around 2 weeks for the peeling to completely stop. After that time they included a After peel Moisturiser.

I can't wait to see the results. But hate hate flaky skin. Will report back with my results.
Price wise its not too cheap €19.99 and I got mine in Hickeys Pharmacy in Henry street. I haven't seen it in any other pharmacies or even boots.

Hope ya have a great night

NOTD: Bourjois so laque in Rouge Casino


Sorry for the messy paint job I painted them last night at 2 in the morning. This is my 1st time painting all my nails in this colour. It's more of red orange I thought it was gonna be more blood red. No chips so far I did some cleaning today (ok so just checked and have 2 chips) It says that it should last 7 days!! not a chance of this.

I did a couple of colour's on my nails for when I went to Oxegen. I couldn't decide what to wear and its not that easy to keep changing your nails every day. I did find it chipped on the one finger as well.

It wouldn't be a polish that would last a whole week so just for how easy it chips I wouldn't recommend it.

Bargain of Today

I popped into Boots on Henry street today for something for my sister and I stopped a stand beside the till with some things on Clearance. I had a look though the stuff and found these. A Boots Floral Berry shower cap for 50 Cent and a bottle of Vichy 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Micellar Solution For €1.50 ( I know couldn't believe it).

It can be used to 1. Cleanse, 2. Removes Make up, 3. Soothes. I haven't used any Vichy products before but for that price you cant go wrong. I came home and took off my make up to give it a try ;-). Instructions are just to use a cotton pad and no need to rinse off. So that's what I did. I used 3 pads back and front and it took off my mascara as well. I would probably need more pads for a night time make up. So far happy with my bargains.

Some pics to show you, Hope the pads aren't too bad but just for examples :-)

Rimmel 60 second Vinyl Shine Nail Polish


I have this nail polish years we have to be talking 10 yrs or more. It has being sitting with my other nail polish for ages and I opened it look inside it and it had got a bit thick so I put a couple of drops of nail polish remover and ta da. I could use it again. I have it on the past 3 days and its not chipped yet. Very surprised as it was just a quick 2 coats and one clear coat. did I mention that it dries in 60 seconds!! The Colour is 808 shocker.I would recommend this nail polish for the coverage and for the speed it dries. Must check out more of these polishes.

Garnier ultra lift challenge


I had sent away for the Garnier ultra lift challenge a couple of weeks ago and completely forgot about it. It arrived in the post yesterday. Included in the little pack is 14 sachets of the Ultra lift Anti-wrinkle firming cream for Day, a wrinkle reader and a £1/€1 off Coupon off any Ultra lift products .

I have to say at the age of 27 I'm not very wrinkly only when I smile I get some lines under my eye's. I decided that I would try it at night instead of day because I use sun cream and foundation on my face every day and I would feel like I have too much on. The wrinkle reader doesn't really work for me so thought I would show you my eye Day 1.

I use the cream last night and it was nice. I did feel like it gave my face a warm feeling at first but that didn't last long. It didn't make my face shiny either so that was good.

I will let you know when I'm finished. Has anyone else tried it.


p.s please excuse the terrible looking eyes brows I'm waiting to wax them.

Sea Sessions

I just thought I would share with you some pics of when I went to Sea Sessions. If you don't know what it is, its a Music and Surf Festival in Bundoran Co. Donegal and its on for 3 days. it was just Me and my friend who travelled up. The journey is not for the faint hearted. We had to get a bus from Dublin to Sligo and from Sligo to Donegal. Think it was around 4 hrs. Probably one of the longest trips I ever done. I don't travel very well.

We decided to stay in The great Northern Hotel lets just say we are not the camping type! The hotel was nice. The room we had was a little on the small size but had a nice view. We didn't get a chance to try out the leisure facilities and had even bought a new swim suit :-( . O did I mention that all the Bands and Dj's were staying in our hotel!! My friend was very excited. We were sitting having lunch and in walked The villagers and I turn to my friend. God your man looks really like your man from the villagers after googling a pic and she turning around to have a nose at him we decided it wasn't him then we walk into the tent and there he was on the stage. Funny it was.

Royseven- This was my 1st time to see them and
they had the tent going mental. One of top acts I seen
the whole weekend. (going to see them again at Kaiser
Chiefs at the end of the month)
Some good looking skaters :-)
Jamie Lawson-he was great. I hadn't heard any of his
music but I really liked him
My friend dragged me cliff walking one morning.
Its gorgeous I could have sat there all day

Bell X1- They were really good and they had a lot of fans there
I didn't think I knew a lot of their songs but turned out I
do!! Got talking to one of their 'people' and he was telling
me that they got great reviews in America. Said they
could be the next U2!!
Another beach
I cant remember this bands name. But their music was
kind of similar to Arctic Monkeys.
Cheesy pic of me reading 'LC' 1st book!!
Would love to know if you were there or if you know any good festivals?

Kings of Leon at Slane

These are some pics of Kings of Leon at Slane back in May. I have being dying to see them for years. I only got to hear a few songs at Oxegen a couple of years ago because I was really sick and had to go home :-(

I wasn't really impressed with the supporting acts. They just weren't my cup of tea at all. It was my 1st time at Slane and I'm telling you it was more like a hike walk than going to a concert!! FYI if one's ever going to Slane make sure to wear comfy shoes. Me and my friend wore Wellies. I had put insole in mine but she hadn't and her feet was killing her.

That's me enjoying the Sun ;-)











Some pics of Oxegen









Hi,

Just wanted to share with you some pics of this year's Oxegen. I have being having problems with uploading for ages.I can't seem to fix the layout of the photo's either that's why there are a bit of a mess!! I done the whole weekend but didn't camp. I got the bus up and down every day. I couldn't believe the weather. It only rained twice. Once for The script and once for Slash. I had a great week.

So many acts were brilliant. Loved The script (the rain didnt even put people off)that was my 4th time seening them. I had just seen them the week before at the Aviva stadium. I'm not a stalker I had got my Aviva ticket before they were announced for Oxegen, Beyonce, Coldplay, Artic Monkeys, Calvin Harris (didn't get to see all of him but still great) Example (I'm dyin to for some one to come see him with me but none of my friends will come :-(

Royseven were great as well. Wish there had being a bigger crowd for them. I seen them at Sea sessions and the crowd went mad for them. Black eyed peas were much better this year. Last year I was up the front and couldn't even hear anything. Weezer were good as well, they played Wheatus Teenage Dirtbag (ah Memories) so was Bruno Mars, Kesha ( I seen her the week before in the O2. She really knows how to get the crowds going and finally The saturdays. That was my second time to see them. They put on a good show. Feel like I told you every one I seen!! My sister came with me on the Sunday and she couldn't believe why she hadn't being before.

That a little video of Coldplay at the end :-)

Did anyone else go to Oxegen? Did ya have a good time!!

I went to see Obama!! The Obama from Moneygall ;-)

well I hadn't planned on it. I had gone furniture shopping that morning and just decided to hop on a bus into town to get my nose full. Over 3 hours later I'm in a crowd of thousands. Here is some pics. I didn't get any where near where he was speaking but it was good fun to be there. 


The crowd's 

Getting scanned and searched by Secret service . It was very exciting. I was afraid to take a picture of them. I had the guards starring at me taken this!!

This is what every single person at to go through...

Jeward!

Shane from Westlife

Enda Kenny... come on Enda wrap it up!!

Obama in case u didn't know




Shopping Haul- Terry Sales,Penny's (Primark), Dunne's, Boots and HMV

I have picked up a couple of things over the past couple of weeks or so. I went to Terry sales ( a beauty Supply) because I seen Joanne over at The make up fairy got a huge botlte of nail polish remover and i had to try it. It would be rude not to ;-) . It cost €4.50 for 495ML. so while I was there I have to try out some new stuff. I have being wanting to try a new wax. I wax my own eyebrows and I like to try new waxes.  I cant seem to find the one I usually use. This is from Smooth Appeal and was €4.50. Cheaper than in boots as well. I have used this a couple of times and found it much better than what I have used in the past. I also did my Mam's and even my Dad's eyebrows!!! (just a tidy up) I didn't go mad. He would have killed me. I would definitely by this again. 


I have heard of Witch hazel before and its always in products to clear up spots so they had a big bottle so I picked up one of those as well. It is priced is €6.85 for a 495ml. I have being using this as well. I don't know if I have seen a huge difference I have still being getting spots but think that is down to hormones. I have seen this back comb on a couple of  you tube videos. I don't back comb a lot with a normal tail comb because it wrecks my hair. Since I got this I have being using this a good bit especially on the second day for a bit of lift at the roots. It was €3.15. The pink clips were on sale for €2.35. I got these for when I change my bed!! I use them to hold the duvet and the cover together.!!!




I popped into Penny's (Primark) and picked up these flip flops 2 for €2. My sister had her friends hat on  the other day and I was like I need one of them. This was €5. This will defo be coming out with me for Oxegen and probably Sea Sessions!!!






On to Dunne's stores. I picked up this teddy and its so girly and summery so I went in and picked up another one. They were on sale for €5 reduced from €15. They are from eh the Savida nightwear collection and I picked up these long bottoms there wasn't a top to match but they are so soft and I love the design on them. they were €5 not sure of original price. 





























Some things from Boots. I got these when the 3 for 2 offer was on. The foundation was 10.59,  the concealer was €6.39 seen this on Tanya Blurr (pixi2woo) you tube videos . you have to check out her videos. I got it in shade No.1 and it seems really light but think I will have to wait for a couple of months before I could wear this. The powder was €5.95 but since it was on 3 for 2 I got  free. I use this every day and I have hit pan on the one I have being using. 






The last thing I got was the SATC 2 DVD. I have being dying to watch this again. I went to see it before wit the girls and the story is ok but I look the location and the clothes. It was on sale for €6.99
