My day to day Make-up routine;
I always talk about how important a good skincare routine is so I won’t go into that now I’ll just leave it as, I do my skincare routine in the morning and let the moisturizer set into my skin for 20mins before I apply any form of make-up.
I tend to keep my day to day make-up very simple, most days no foundation and if I feel I need extra coverage I would make my own tinted moisturizer.
Concealer is something I use religiously. Forget diamonds girls, concealer is BEST friend haha.
Again depending on the day and what the outlook of the day’s business, I might apply eyeliner and a hint of shadow to define eyes but most days I would just apply mascara.
I might apply some shader and highlighter but mostly I would finish with a lick of natural coloured lip-gloss.
Again some days I might decided to switch it up with some mulberry or red lips for the fun.
However on a daily basis, concealer, mascara and gloss are all you really need :)
Such a sad moment! Deffo deserves it
his smile says congratulations but his eyes say pain
Even Johan in the back looks at him and his smile drops because he knows his bestie deserved that shit

Women vs Society
For many many years it has been women against pretty much everything; so I’m narrowing it down and giving the facts like it’s seen these days.
We have to be a certain weight, have a certain look and act a certain way to be 'accepted' into the world.
Society has come a long way from the old days for women. Women can be expected to get a education, get themselves a job or have a career. However there is always that judgment if a women decides to not give up her career for a man to get married, have kids and become family orientated. There is still that expectancy for women to have kids and mind the kids while the ‘husband’ is the bread winner.
With the way the economy has gone, many people either don’t have work or the women are those who have work rather than the men; because imagine the 'manly jobs' are pretty much gone haha. God forbid 'men' actually do something at home for once.
Women vs Men
Now women against men is a different story. It’s all a man’s world really. They consider themselves right in every situation, always, without a doubt the women is wrong of course. Then there’s the fact they really think we’re just on earth for their pleasure; whenever they want it, women are expected to jump. Men lie, it’s like they have a part of their brain that triggers them to be a compulsive liar. They treat women everywhere like a piece of meat. Sure jaysis 'men' are only great… fuck off!
Women vs Women
Lets be honest here, females have a bitchy side and it can come out in force towards other women. Bad mouthing each other, judging each other on looks, clothes, weight etc…this goes back to society though, it kind of made us like that. But then we have the occasions where women empower other women and stick up for each other. Combined forces of strong women is a powerful tool.
The Valentines Hype
Ahhhh Valentine’s Day. A day of flowers, which usually tend to be red roses, chocolates, cakes, cupcakes, cute little teddy bears, soppy cards, heart felt moments, candle lite dinners, dressing up, even proposals and the occasional wedding.
Then we have those single individuals who decide to tweet and Facebook about how shit this day is and rain on everyone’s parade for enjoying the day. Some people don’t have Mother’s on Mother’s Day or Father’s on Father’s Day, like being single on a labelled day is no different than being single on a regular Friday. Get over yourself!
Then there’s just the individuals who just don’t have much of an opinion of the day. They are either single or in a relationship and the day just doesn’t have a meaning for them. They might get their other half a card or something just to signify the day but it’s no big deal to them.
Personally, I’m a mix of liking the day and not really having an opinion. I love flowers, I’m a chocolate freak and I adore getting cards, mainly because I like to get really good cards for other people :) But I don’t really care to much for the day, I never make big deal of it or make big plans.
It’s a very over commercialized day, shops and websites go over board for decorating and stock so much, heart shaped balloons and all. Can’t say I’ve ever gotten a heart shaped balloon though. I remember being in the USA a week after Christmas, I’d say it was a day after New Year’s day and I was in a random store, what did I see…Valentines stock! Pink hot chocolate! I’ll never know what I didn’t buy it, it has had me curious for like the past 7 years. To be fair, Valentines in Ireland isn’t as big as I think it is advertised over in the states but it’s getting bigger I feel. Sure look, with our recession issues and job problems we’re anything to cheer the nation up is very welcome! Bring on the soppy valentines games kids!
