What I Love About Fall – Day 4

Day 4!!

Today I’ll be talking about what I love about fall, here’s my top 10 things I love about it!

1) The Fall Look

I love the trees and the leaves, there is nothing better than going for a walk in the park on a nice fall morning and looking at all the leaves that have changed to beautiful colours and watching them fall from the trees!! It so amazing and one of my favourite things ever.! The best pictures can be taken, its great and is my favourite thing about fall!

2) It’s getting cold..

Cold weather is my all time favourite, I love it so much. I’m definitely more excited this year because of the killer weather we had all summer!. It’s still not that cold but I cant wait to layer my clothes and wrap myself in 20 different blankets, it’ll be so amazing!!.

3) Clothes

I love wearing warm jumpers, hats and scarfs, I’m literally obsessed with them all! But my most favourite of all is layering my clothes, I think it is the best thing ever and just looks so good. No matter what they always look so good!. Also boots they look so amazing and who doesn’t wear boots during fall?

4) Warm drinks

There is nothing better than making a warm drink and sitting down with a book and a blanket at the fire. Me personally I don’t drink hot drinks unless I’m cold so I look forward to that!.

5) Walks

What is better than cold weather? walks in cold weather! Either really late at night or really early in the morning is my favourite because that’s when it’s really cold. At night has to be my favourite though because after a long day you can just wrap up, grab the dog and walk around in the lovely fresh air, it’s so amazing!

6) Halloween

I am not a huge Halloween fan but this year my niece is going to be 15 months and I can’t wait to see her dressed up and go trick or treating with her because I lost the excitement of Halloween a few years ago but now i have it to look forward to because i get to experience it with my favourite little girl!.

7) Pumpkin’s

I love craving pumpkins so much and that’s something I really look forward to during fall time! I cant wait to do it this year!!

8) Winter is coming

It’s fall now which means winter is close and I just love winter sooo much, so people might hate me for this but Christmas is coming…!!

9) Halloween Movies..

love love love some Halloween movies.. but I’ve got a post coming on that later!

10) Disney

I would love to visit Disneyland/world during this time because it looks amazing and I just love looking through pictures and seeing what it looks like and all that!

See you tomorrow,

1) How To Be A Bawse by Lilly Singh

I have been dying to read this since it came out. I’ve seen so much about it and it’s always been good and positive feedback which is what makes me want to read it more! So it is definitely top of the list!

2) Note To Self by Connor Franta

Another book that has been on my list for a long time and I just never got around to buying and reading it.

3) Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

This is only now getting made into a movie and I saw the trailer as soon as I did I knew I just had to read the book.

I just love John Green and hope to someday I will finish all his books!

6) Love, Simon by Becky Albertalli

It has such a good storyline and I have a feeling it will be a good read.

7) The Summer We Fell by Amber Garza

Don’t know much about this but it was recommended to me and I’m sure it has a great story line!

8) Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

As far as I know the Love, Simon movie is based on this book so I’d love to hear the ordinal story and see what they changed and how they made it into Love, Simon!

9) Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Another recommendation that I don’t know much about but it seems super interesting.

10) The Skin Nerd by Jennifer Rock

I love my skin and skin care so much so of course I want to read a book about it and learn some new things!

11) To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Feel in love with the movie so now I need to read the book!!.

12) The Importance Of Being Aisling by Emer Mclysaght & Sarah Breen

I’ve seen this floating around recently and I’m dying to know what it’s all about!

13) The Confidence Kit by Caroline Foran

I lack confidences and think it looks like a great book to read!

14) 21 Lessons For The 21st Century by Yuval Noah Breen

This book looks so interesting and I really need to read it!

15) The Little Coffee Shop Of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez

I’ve seen this everywhere and it was recommended multiple times so it must be a good read!

16) An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Yet another recommendation that I can’t wait i check out.

17) The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

As far as I know this is an old one but I was told it was good so it was added to the list!

18) The Pisces by Melissa Broder

This is only new and the book cover looks amazing and I think the book itself will be too!

19) Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith

I finished book one and I’m currently on number two so I’d love to finish the whole set!

20) Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

My sister loves McFly and of course this is written by Tom’s wife!, my sister gave me a loan of this book to read it because she reads her books and thinks they are great!.

What’s a book you are dying to read?

October Goals – Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of blogtober, today I’m going to be talking about my new goals for this month. It was only in August I started to set monthly goals and I’m already stopping and here’s why.

Dont get me wrong I think its great people set goals for every month and do all they can to achieve their goals and people do amazing at them every month but it’s not for me. I do have goals I want to achieve but I want them to be things I can build up on and not all about numbers. Most goals people set are to hit a certain following by the end of the month on their blogs or social medias and I just don’t really want to focus on that. My goals are to better my self and this is a goal I’m always going to have and possibly might never fully achieve it.

There is only 3 months left of this year and I want to take this time to make myself better, I want to be healthier, work on my confidence and just concentrate on my work so I can go into a new year with the right happy mind-set and be ready to enjoy the new year. I’m choosing these as my goals instead of saying i want to hit 1,000 on Instagram or whatever because i feel that when you set that goal it’s all you think about and at the end of the day its a number and if we keep focusing on numbers we’ll never get anywhere. Instead of bettering my following i want to better myself. This was a short post today but an exciting one is coming tomorrow!

P U R E By PS

Primark are back with a brand new make-up line and I’m so excited! Recently Primark’s make-up game has been on another level and there is so many of their products I love and use regularly!. Whenever they come out with new products I usually buy one or two of them and do a review for you guys so here’s my review of P U R E!

I picked up a liquid lipstick & the eyeshadow palette because they were so pretty and I knew I’d get use out of them both!

Also available in the in the line:

A face palette; 3 highlight shades & 1 contour

2 shades of liquid lipsticks

2 shades of single highlighters

A portable mirror

4 shades of liquid highlighters

3 eye pigments

12 shades eyeshadow palette

Liquid lipstick:

I love liquid lipsticks, they are definitely something I always want to get more of because they are amazing and this one definitely falls under amazing. I love the colour so much, you could easily match it with many different eye looks! You could use it for an everyday look or glam it up! The glitter makes it stand out, it applies so good and is definitely one of my favourites. I also loved the packaging and the shape of the bottle it’s so pretty and tops the whole thing off! I would definitely recommend this, and I’m so sorry I didn’t pick up the other shade too!

Eyeshadow palette:

Eyeshadow palette’s are definitely my favourite make-up products, I love them so much, they are always the prettiest!. First, let’s talk about the layout, the shapes are amazing and I just love how they laid it out, it’s beautiful!. The second I opened this palette I fell in love with the colours they were all so beautiful and I could literally picture in my head the amount of eye looks that could be created with this palette. There is so much pigment in each shade and it blends so nicely. The glitter shades are definitely my favourites!. As well as it being hands down a fabulous palette it is also light and what I mean by light is when it’s on it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin or eyes, I find a lot of makeup is like this but not this palette. Also it wipes away nice and easy, you know after a long day of wearing makeup and you can’t wait to go home and just take it off? And when you scrub your eyes so much trying to wipe away the makeup that it starts to hurt and irritate you because of the rubbing? Well not this one! It rubs off so nice and gently and it’s amazing! Only €6 and it’s just amazing!!!

Blogtober starts Monday so I’ll see you then!❤️

Back to Home School

It’s back to school time, who’s excited?, Today’s post is a back to school one since everyone is getting ready to go back or already back. Most people don’t know but I am home schooled and have been since January 2017, anyone that I do tell always has a million questions so I thought I’d do a blog post on it!

Little back story, why I’m home schooled, I wasn’t always home schooled I completed nearly 3 years of secondary school along with years before that, but I was total unhappy with my school and the people, don’t get me wrong I had no problems with the work i loved it, i loved being busy but the people in my school would drain the life out of you, plus around this time i was going to hospitals and doctors trying to figure out what was wrong with me and what my pains were ( if you don’t know you can read about my pains here ) but my teachers, principal along with the students would literally judge me for missing school and anytime I gave them a note they would play a game of 21 question because they thought I was faking it and making it up, my principals once sat and compared me to other girls in my school saying oh well this girl has this wrong with her and she still goes and does this, they knew nothing about my illness or what pain I went through so they can’t sit there and tell me someone else has it worst than me, do you really think from the age of 12 i wanted to spend most my days, in hospital or bed and have to give up my sports which i loved very much because of pain? Anyways i said this to my parents and i looked up schooling options and they both agreed and thought it was best for me. At this point I’m already having the idea to start a blog, so in January my Mam said from then till June i will continue to study and get my exams done and then we’ll go straight into your blog which we did. The next year came around 4th year which is optional and you don’t really do much, my mam said how about another year of blogging so you can figure out if you want to just stick and grow your blog or go back and finish your final years in school, my mam kept saying you want blogging to be your career so why not invest in that now and help it if that’s what you are set on doing.

So thing year is going to be a little different, im going to be working on my blog and social media presence so much, aswell as making a portfolio to go do a full-time business course in college I want to do next year so my subjects this year are blogging and business along with a few others, I choose to do Maths, English, Irish and Spanish too, which I’m so happy with, along with that this year I will be doing different part-time courses for my portfolio and get me back into a school routine, they are all business and social media related. It’s less stressful and i get to work in a space I’m comfortable with and i also get to plan out my day, what i want / have to do and it definitely decreases my anxiety for trying to get loads of stuff done, because unlike a busy and set school day, my schedule can be changed around on days i have places to go or other stuff to do, it isn’t just a normal timetable i have to follow daily. Homeschooling / working from home is definitely less stressful, you don’t have people all around you messing and talking so you can sit, concentrate and get your work that you need done without a million different distractions. I definitely get a lot more work done now.

Basically the reason behind me being home schooled was mostly my blog I wanted to make a career out of it and start as soon as i could and my parents supported that, it was also my pains and my school but mostly for my blog, which i know some parents wouldn’t do but my did and I’m so happy they did and i want to show them they made the right choice.

I’m going to do a home school Q&A so if you have questions comment or tweet me them to me.

VMA Favourite’s

Hey, so this years vma’s I was actually very disappointed with the rep carpet looks I hated more than I loved to be honest. For like the first time ever Blake Lively isn’t on this list, which is rare because she always looks so good and don’t get me wrong she still looked amazing just I wasn’t a fan of what she was wearing for once!

5. Nicki Minaj

6. Bebe Rexha

I really love this look & she looks amazing!!

7. Shay Mitchell
