What I'm listening at this moment: Adele - Rolling In The Deep

OK, its nearly 1 in the morning and this is what I'm listening too. This is one of my favourite songs at the moment. It just makes me wanna dance. Everyone is asleep and I'm sitting in front of the computer with my big eye plugs on dancing!! I love Adele voice I love her other song Chasing pavements its one of my favourites. What you think??

So guess who I didn't see!!

So off I went to town on Sunday thinking I was gonna see Jason Byrne. I had gone out before with my friend's and my sister for food a couple of doors away from the theatre where it was on. When we walked outside there was a queue of about 70 people outside. At first we all assumed we would get in after standing there for about a half hour or more one of the reps from Applause store comes up to tell us that its full that there might be some standby tickets.

So another few minutes we are told that there is no tickets at all. Now I don't think I'm on my own to think that this was terrible. The whole point was that if you get in contact with them and they sent you a e- ticket that was your ticket to the show. Only after about a hour or more did we learn that it was first come first served. They give out too many tickets in the first place so they knew already that not everyone was gonna get in. There was 2 woman that had paid for babysitters and everything. I think it was very badly organised. I spoke to one of the reps that night and he told me to contact the office and I have and got no response!!

I wouldn't recommended anyone giving up there time on the off chance that you get in!!

Some things I got in the Sales item # 3

3rd item I got was this Sun Kissed Make up set. I got it from Dunnes Stores and it was only €3 reduced from €7 approx. I just thought I would get it for thrown in my bag when I'm off to a festival. You know how your bag and stuff gets thrown around when your dancing!! Inside there is 3 eye shadows- light, medium (would be good for a eyebrow shade) and dark, a bronzer, a blusher and 4 make up brushes. The brushes are cheap but would do if you just want to throw them in your bag. I haven't had much chance to use this because I'm not really wearing makeup at the moment. Have you tried anything from this Sun kissed range??

Some things I got in the Sales Item #1

1st thing was a French Connection gift set from Boots. I got this for my friends birthday. It was €24 reduced to €12. There is a body spray, moisturizer and I think its body wash. The make up bag was really nice as well. The colours aren't really showing in this picture. I think that was a good bargain and she seemed to like it.

Guess who I'm goin to see???!!!!

Jason Byrne! I can't wait. I applied to be in the audience for Dave's One Night Stand next Sunday. It was advertised on MCD FB page.I only asked for 3 tickets and I got 4 so I'm bringing my 2 friends and my sister. He has some opening acts aswell. I have only hear that Milton Jones was one of them. I will let you know how I get on but if its anything like his out of the box DVD I will have a great time :-)

This Video is from his Out of the Box DVD. I couldn't seem to see his joke about his wife giving out about a knife in the spoon drawer. It's very funny because it reminds me of my Mammy.

My little life savers

These little babies have being my life saver though the cold weather that we had over the past couple of months. I have being wearing these everywhere. They are so handy I just throw them in my bag.
The reasons why I love them are they are bright pink so they aren't going to get lost in my handbag. They have fleece lining so they keep you hands lovely and cosy.
The most important part they cost €5 and all the money goes to The Irish Cancer Society. They can be bought in Centra stores.
I think everyone knows someone who has had cancer or is going through treatments now. So I think its a really good cause.
Here is more info on The Irish Cancer Society

Tresemme Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo Review

I have to say I wasn't impressed by this product. My reason for this is:

  • It was more expensive than other products that do the same thing i.e Batiste

  • It didn't last very long. It felt like I used it a couple of times and it was gone

  • When I sprayed it, it came out like spraying power and got stuck to the nozzle of the spray.

Not too sure of the price. Its on offer in Dunnes store at the moment for €3 but I got mine in boots a while back. I have used other Tresemme products and really liked them.

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

U2 at Croke park

While I was cleaning up my computer I found some pics of the U2 concert I went too in July 09 and thought I would share :-)

My seat was 4th from the back so was really far away but it was still a great concert. My ticket was around €30 and that is great value for a U2 concert. Sure you couldn't miss it for that price even if your not a fan. The supporting act was The script and The Bell X1.

I think the night time pics are cool!

Loving things Jersey style

For the past couple of weeks I have being watching The real housewives of New Jersey. My other favourite Jersey show is Jersey shore. I watched a couple of episodes of season one of the housewives but have really got into season 2. I have being a fan of Jersey shore since the beginning. It filled the hole when The hills finished. I think the reason why I love it is because it is nothing like my life. Everything is so over the top on the housewives and I love that's its always sunny on the shore and it doesn't hurt that the people are mental!!

Check out season 2 of The real housewives of New Jersey

Here is the promo for season 3 of New Jersey. I think it might have already started in the US but I cant wait for it to be shown here!

sorry blogger wouldn't let me upload another video.

Hope your having a nice relaxing New years Day.
