Monday morning!

Mac Saint Germain lipstick.......... SUPER BRIGHT!

Hi everyone!!
Well, its Monday again and yet another hectic weekend! There was a trip to the vets for Rooney's injections, trips to Dublin, baking and lots more! On Friday morning myself and Sam had our beauty salon open again, Edel and Eleanor were going to a wedding so we done their hair and make up for them! One of these days I'm going to do a make up course and go pro!!!
Myself and Aaron done some baking yesterday evening and tried out some cupcakes we seen on Youtube...... they turned out well and he brought a couple in for his teachers this morning so I hope they like them!! He's getting his holidays on Thursday so we might go to the cinema or something to celebrate!  Really can't wait for Wednesday night, myself and G are going to see Transformers 3! Lets hope its as good as the other 2! The trailers look brilliant anyway so fingers crossed!!
Todays make up is fairly neutral because I bought Mac "St Germain" lipstick a while back and haven't had much opportunity to wear it because its an EXTREMELY bright pink colour! I'm practicing my liquid liner every day now because I'm really wobbly at it and want to get better at it!  I'm hoping to get an Inglot palette soon, Meteor are doing a 20% off voucher with their goodie bag promotion so a 10 palette would only be €44 instead of €55.  They have a fantastic range of colours and are EXCELLENT quality!  They're actually cheaper than Mac and the square eyeshadows are bigger too! 

So I went for my first hair cut and colour on Thursday and seeing as it was the first time I said I would go to Peter Mark and have it done.  Nearly had a heart attack when I went to pay though.... they charged me €70!!!! I suppose I really should have said something but typical Irish I kept my mouth shut and handed over my laser card!! I'll be doing it myself next time!
I was really happy that all the greys were covered but ended up having to trim it another bit when I got home cos there was a few sticky out bits but at least I can keep it trimmed now myself while it grows!

Eleanor and Edel!

Don't know what to call this!!

Took a notion to do a bit of baking today - I'm starting to think I'm addicted to it!! I decided to do some half madeira, half chocolate fairy cakes (my good friend Jackie made some a while back so I eventually got around to trying them out!!).  They only took ten mins to mix up and I was putting them in the oven just as G came in the door for his lunch!! Perfect timing!! And they taste lovely too!! As usual the lads all tore into them so there's only a couple left now! :-)
What should I try next I wonder?? I really enjoy baking, pity I can't say the same for cooking!

I'm booked in for my first colour and cut on Thursday, can't wait to get it fixed up and hopefully the colour will turn out ok!! Fingers crossed!
Stupid weather would have you driven cuckoo! Sooner the better I get driving! I can't believe I just typed that!!! But its true, I'm fed up not being able to go places, especially when its raining and I don't want to drag Ryan out!
I put most of my make up into my new train case so I must take some photos now that its all organised and tidy!! I love it but its REALLY heavy when its full so you wouldn't want to be lugging it up and down stairs too often!

Don't know why this is all blurry!!

A Busy Baking Bee!!

I've been flat out baking the last couple of days, first my cousin/godson Shaun had a cake sale for Avoca National School on Thursday so I had to do some last minute baking for that on Wednesday afternoon and then myself and Sam spent the day yesterday baking for Aaron's cake sale in school which was on this morning! Can't believe it took 4 hours to make 8 small chocolate cakes and 20 fairy cakes!! I don't know how they cope on cupcake wars at all when they have 2 and a half hours to make 1000 cupakes!! And that didn't even count the actual baking!! That was just the decorating!
Its a horrible, wet, miserable day so I'm sitting here painting my nails and uploading photos while my kitchen floor dries! Rooney is settling in great and Ryan loves him! Aaron is still a bit nervous of him but he's getting better with him!

15 days wigless!!

I haven't worn my wig for over 2 weeks now!! I've been wearing a hat or going without it and even though I have a load of grey hair I couldn't care less.  I HAVE HAIR!!!! I do feel a bit self conscious going out without a wig or hat because I'm not used to people actually looking at my short hair - which is really curly by the way!!- but I'm not wearing the wig any more and thats that!  Aaron asked me what should he say if any of his friends ask why my hair is so short but I told him that some women have hair this short and just tell them that I got my hair cut! I said he didn't have to tell them any more than that! He's gone very worried about me though, I recently spent a night in A&E with mammy and when G came to collect us Aaron thought that I was in hospital because 'my bad cells were back'! The poor pet!
We had a lovely first wedding anniversary, mammy cooked us dinner in my sisters house and it was great to get dinner handed up to you for a change!
I got an appointment to see my dermatologist in Vincents in July, my psoriasis is really gone out of control and is gone so sore when I move, its rubbing off all of my clothes now and I can't even wear jeans any more! The appointment was originally supposed to be in September but I couldn't wait that long so I asked my doctor if she could get me an earlier appointment because I'm so sore and flaking EVERYWHERE!! I'm constantly wiping down chairs after myself to make sure I'm not leaving bits of myself behind!
Hopefully they'll be able to do something different for me as I just don't think creams are going to work for me any more!! 

Only 16 days to go now til TRANSFORMERS 3 is released! I can't wait and the trailers look amazing!! I have mammy booked to babysit already because I want to go see it the day its released!

Haven't taken pics of my make up the last few days, been too busy spending time with my 3 boys (well, 4 if you count Rooney!!) but I did finally apply for a driving test the other day! I'm fed up walking everywhere and now I want to be able to drive!!! I have to go get passport photos taken so I'll have to make sure that I spend plenty of time on my hair! ((SNIGGER!!))

Thats all for now, thanks for reading!!! :o)

Got my laptop back!!!

I finally have my laptop back up and running! I ended up buying a charger on Amazon for it and it was half the price of the ones here in Arklow! Its great to have it back and hopefully it will keep working for another while until I get a new one!
I'm excited today because I'm scouting on Ebay (finally!!) for a big make up case! It was our wedding anniversary yesterday so G asked me what I'd like and thats what I said I wanted!! I would have loved a new laptop but thats a bit too much to ask!! So I'm finally going to get myself one!
I got some FREE make up off the brilliant Barry M the other day which was so nice!! They sent me 2 dazzle dusts, a purple nail varnish, eyeliner and a liquid eyeliner!! I'm wearing the eyeliner and the dark blue/black dazzle dust today!  I know I've said it before but these eyeshadows are fantastic and I'd really recommend them to anyone!! They're available in Boots in Jervis St and Blanchardstown too and they are really reasonably priced and last FOREVER!!!!
We got our puppy after too!! He's a golden retriever and we named him Rooney! We've had him 2 weeks now and he's almost 10 weeks old and its like having 3 children now! Or 4 if you include G!! He's gorgeous though and he's a big ball of fluff!! I've done an updated video on my hair re-growth too because I've been finished chemo for 16 weeks now!!

Today's make up!!

Rooney again!
