My most worn item

Recently my most worm Item has been my watch. 
I refuse to leave the house without it!

The funny thing is I HATED wearing watched up until last year when my boyfriend gave me one as a gift. 
I wore it all the time and decided then that I needed a new one. 

I have been on the lookout for a chunky gold watch that it quite plain. 
I stumbled upon this beauty on the New Look website and knew it was the one Ive been searching for

It was £15.99 and £5 delivery so thats around €23 euro I believe. 

I love how pretty it is, I love that It fits my tiny wrist perfectly but most of all I love the fact that I didnt have to splash out on a designer watch. I gotta admit thought I would do anything for a Chanel or Michael Kors watch. 

What has been your most worn item? 
Thank you for reading :)

Summer Brights

Hi Dolls!
I recently took a trip to Dublin to buy some basics for work such as black clothes and some new shoes.
I also picked up some tank tops and underwear from Penneys which you dont need to see. 

I was extremely good and didn't buy any make up what so ever! But I did pick up what I thought were essentials for the hot weather that we've been having recently. 

The first thing I got was this skirt from H&M 
It fits me beautifully and only cost €7.95
They also had this in black, mint and a hot pink I believe but this was the most attractive color.

I needed a new cardigan but I didnt want another black or brown one. 
When I saw this fushia cardi I fell in love. It will be perfect for the summer to throw over a little dress. 
I apologize about the picture, my camera just wouldnt focus :(
This was €13.95

I already own a denim jacket from last year. I got it from Penneys in the kids department. It is a light wash cropped jacket. I literally wore it all summer.
When I saw this in Penneys I had to have it
It is a full length denim jacket. I already know that this will be worn to death. 
It was €17

You can never have too many flats so I got these simple grey ones which were only €4

As I already mentioned I got loads of everyday basics such as underwear, tank tops and black shoes for work. I think that Penneys is the best place for that
Im also developing a slight obsession for H&M since they start bringing out  clothes that is actually wearable. 

Overall I think I didnt do that big of a damage to my bank account since I am trying to save for a holiday which has yet to be booked :/ 

All you ladies that are on midterm from school or college enjoy it while you can!
I am currently slaving away in work doing 12 hour shifts :(

tag: How much does your face cost?

Hi Dolls!

I wasn't tagged to do this but I loved the idea of finding out how much money I spend for my everyday make up.

I have a feeling that I'm about to get a big shock :/

So this is what I wore on my face today!
I can't remember the exact prices, they are just estimates. 

Glow Job Moisturiser - €15
Make Up Forever HD Primer - €30
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - € 34
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer - €9
MAC Studio Fix Concealer - €17
MAC MSF Natural - €24
Benefit Hoola Bronzer - €34
MAC MSF in Pink Power - €35
MAC Paintpot in Bare Study - €17
Inglot 5 pan palette - €24
E.l.f brow powder - €4
Maybelline Millions Mascara - €16
E.l.f lipgloss - €2

Total = €261 

Oh god!! That is a lot of money considering Im not even using my MAC eyeshadows eyeliner or lipstick! Oh and I didn't include any brushes! 

I think it will be interesting to see how much ti costs to wear drugstore make up only. I think tomorrow I might try that out :) 

I tag all of you to do this tag and see how much your face costs!
Thank you for reading

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Review

Hi Dolls!

About three weeks ago Liz Earle send me the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser to test out and review. 
Here is what Liz Earle say about the product:

We only make one cleanser because this formulation is the ultimate in concentrated yet gentle cleansing power and works on every age and skin type.Our plant-based cleanser has a 2-phase action, phase 1 is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make-up, even stubborn mascara.Phase 2 is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to help gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.Naturally active ingredients include eucalyptus and cocoa butter for smoother, clearer skin.

I got the starter pack which included a 100ml cleanser and 2 Muslin Cloths all stored in a lovely zip-up bag. 
With that I also got some great information booklets.

I've read many reviews on this product but didn't really pay any attention because for some unknown reason I thought it was going to cost a bomb. I couldn't have been more wrong.

I have been using this at night time to remove all my make up. Yes even waterproof eyeliner and mascara.
I was surprised to find that it removed all my make up in one go. My eyes were smudge free and they didnt sting or turn red.

I love that its so easy to use. Just dispense 1-2 pumps into dry hands and massage onto dry skin. Give yourself a mini facial! Leave your eyes until the end because you will spread the eye make up all over your face.

I have seen a huge improvement in my skin since I started using this. The product I was using before broke me out and made my skin very red and irritated. It has since calmed down and I am blemish-free.
With most face-washes, cleansers etc I get a very tight feeling on my skin which I hate. It makes my dry skin even more uncomfortable .
Cleanse and Polish leaves my skin feeling soft clean and smooth. The Muslin Cloth is perfect for an everyday mild exfoliation.

Of course the downside is that here in Ireland we cant purchase it unless you order online which is not a problem for me since Im an online shopping addict but it might be a problem for younger girls who dont have laser/credit cards. In that case Im sure you can pursued your parents to buy it for you if you do the dishes for a week :) Also the Muslin Cloths have to be washed every 2-3 days and replaced every couple of months. I handwash mine nearly everyday with some soap which takes 2 minutes out of my day.

I am delighted to say that Ive found my perfect skincare routine. When I run out of my cleanser I will be placing an order for some other products to try such as the Instant Boost Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser as well as another bottle of Cleanse and Polish.

Are you a Cleanse and Polish fan?
What other Liz Earle products  would you recommend for me to try?

Thank you for reading girlies :)
