DIY Make-Up Bag!

I am always complaining I can’t find a makeup bag big enough to fit all of my makeup and palettes, so I decided to design and make my own!

I wanted a bag that could fit all my palettes as well as keep all of my brushes together, making it much easier for traveling!

Here is a tutorial on how to make the bag as well as the patterns, which are linked below. Alongside them, you will also find a link to my YouTube video of this tutorial!

My Goals For 2018!

As we all know a new year means a new you or at least working to improve the person you have already become! Whether that means a new diet, new wardrobe, new hair style or even a new occupation, the new year gives us the chance to start on a clean slate!

Today’s blog post is my goals for 2018, ranging from really big, to simple achievable goals! I think it is very important to not only set yourself challenges, but to also set yourself small goals that you know you can achieve, this way you will always be able to check things off your list and not be left disappointed if you can’t complete the tasks you have set out for yourself!

Zombie Bite Tutorial

It is that time of the year again, where we can all dress like our favourite movie characters or as a brain eating zombie and no one will judge!

For today’s post I thought it would be fun to show you all how to create a zombie bite, or a simple wound. Continue reading “Zombie Bite Tutorial”

August Favourites 2017

Another month has gone by and we are now in Fall/Autumn!! To be honest I’m pretty excited for this season, I can start layering my clothes and lighting the fire!

I have a few things I have really been loving over the past month, so I thought I would do another monthly favourites post!

Evian Facial Spray

Over the past few weeks the humidity in Ireland has been so high and I hate when I start getting really hot and sweaty! I went into Penny’s/Primark and I picked up this little beauty! I haven’t stopped using it since I bought it, it is so refreshing! I know it is just water in a spray can, but it is just so handy to have in your bag, especially for the days when the humidity is through the roof! Another plus to this product is, you can use it over make-up, I have used it several times when I had make up on and it didn’t destroy it and it didn’t make my mascara run!

Primark Demi Wispies Lashes

I got so excited when I seen these in my local Penny’s/Primark, I love the Ardell Wispies, but paying €6 for lashes, that I usually only wear once, is a bit much. These lashes are only €1.50!!! They are so easy to apply and they are very very comfortable to wear! I got so many compliments from people, asking if they were my own! I went in to buy more and they were all out of stock, so clearly other people are loving them too!

Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation

I started to get bored with my current foundation, so I went and bought the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation, I wanted to try one that was high coverage and this seemed to be just that. I am really impressed with this foundation, especially considering the price, €7.95. I don’t want to give much away because I am working on the product review at the moment, it will be posted soon!

River Island Fur Loafers

I am seriously in love with these loafers! I’m trying to get as much wear out of them as possible, now that we are in Fall the weather is going to start getting bad, so I will barely get to wear them! They are very comfortable to wear and are true to size! They are currently on sale for €18, which is a bargain! I wanted to buy the pink ones, because I loved these so much, but I just don’t think I will get the wear out of them now with the season change. I love that I can wear a simple outfit and add these as a statement, some people don’t like them, but I just love that they are different!

Supplements

Slippery Elm

I have only been taking this product for about two weeks, but I needed to add it to my favourites! For as long as I can remember I have suffered with IBS and it has caused me a lot of other problems including my high anxiety. This week was the first time, in a few years that I was able to go out for a meal with my friends without any pain, or panic attacks and I honestly couldn’t believe it!! So far I am seeing amazing results, but I don’t want to get my hopes up too much, just in case it doesn’t stay this way! If you suffer with IBS I would highly recommend this product!

Digestive Enzymes

I have been taking these for just over a month and they are also doing an amazing job for my digestion! The digestive enzymes give your body that extra help to break down Protein, fat and carbohydrates! I take these after my meals, and they really help to get rid of the full bloated feeling when you eat too much or eat too quickly! I have also found they have help with bloating!

Herbal Teas

IMG_1365

Turmeric Gold

You may have noticed by now I am on a bit of a health kick! While doing research on digestion and herbal remedies I found out turmeric is a natural anti inflammatory! Straight away I thought the tea might help with the pains I get when my body is digesting food. I can’t say for sure that it does because Iv been taking the Slippery Elm at the same time, but the pains are gone, so it was either or! I added it to my list because I love the taste of it, I used to hate herbal teas, but after drinking them for a while your taste buds get used to the taste!

Supreme Matcha Green

I picked up the Matcha tea because I heard it was great for giving you energy! I was hoping it would be as good as my coffee, but let’s be honest, nothing can replace coffee! Again it is a really nice tea to drink and I love have a cup with my breakfast! I have been trying to drink more herbal teas instead of coffee, but it’s not as easy as I had hoped!

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Book

IMG_1217.jpg

Not only am I trying to learn more about my digestion I am also trying to learn more about my mind, I have suffered with anxiety for a long time now. Although I have found tricks to cope with it, I would also like to learn more about why I think the way I do. I am really enjoying this book, it is so easy to read and to follow, there are little activities to take part in, which help give you a better understanding of the chapters! I would highly recommend it to anyone suffering with mental health problems!

Grace & Frankie

Grace-and-Frankie-Netflix-Original-Cast

This show came up on my Netflix recommendations and I decided to give it a watch, myself and my Fiance have been binge watching it every weekend! It is such a funny TV show and the story is very good! We are nearly done all the episodes and it will be May before the next season comes out 😦 It is a show about two couples in their 70’s, the 2 husbands tell their wives they are leaving them, for each other, as they have decided to get married after a 20 year affair! The show follows both the lives of the wives and the husbands and how they are coping with their new life’s! It sounds quite confusing, but it is hilarious!

What is your August favourite?

Thank you for reading!

Love, Tanya
