Catch up on the last few days!

Where has our summer gone?? It was lovely the last few days now all of a sudden the winter is back again!  My laptop seems to be making funny noises lately, I wonder how much longer it will last before it gives up the ghost??  2 hospital appointments tomorrow so will be up there from lunchtime til god knows when!!
My local chemist, Hollys, have gotten in Catrice make up so I'm sure I'll be spending plenty of time in there from now on!  They're the same company (as far as I know) that do Essence but are SLIGHTLY more expensive!

A lot of you that read this blog don't know me personally, so wouldn't know that I don't drive.... long story short I had a licence and was learning to drive but then just gave up on it.  That was 3 years ago and now that we have 2 children and the car is just sitting in the yard 5 days a week (plus the fact that I have zero energy lately!) I said that I would try again!  So yesterday evening, G brought me out around the old IFI road and I drove around for about half an hour and he said he was very impressed with me!  I think we'll go out again tomorrow evening for another while and see how I get on but I think it will be a while before I'm confident enough to be out driving on the roads!! I'll keep you all updated and let you know when its time for you all to stay off the roads!!

Quick smokey look I done yesterday with my new ELF Elements compact

Close up of yesterdays look done with my ELF quad and ELF brightening white pencil and gunmetal liner

Catrice...... the new addition in my local chemist! €2.79 for 10ml

Todays makeup: Mac Blondes gold, satin taupe and Barry M blue eyeshadow

I've found a load of new blogs to follow through #bbloggers on Twitter so every now and then when I have a few minutes to myself I have a nose through them and its great to look at and read other peoples blogs! They all seem to have a lot more followers than I do though and I hardly ever seem to get comments on my blog so I don't know what I'm doing wrong! Hopefully some of you out there can help me out!

Myself and Aaron done some more baking yesterday and here is what we made!

My camogie team had their annual fundraising event on Sunday and this year we had a sponsored bed push! It was great fun and we all dressed up in our pyjamas! We laughed the whole way to the meetings and back and then we had a hillbilly bbq so we were all dressed up in our cowboy gear!
Thats me in the Black and pink with the hat!

The bed!!!


  1. Wow, that smokey eye with the ELF stuff really suits you! Good luck with the driving :)

  2. Your two boys look gorgeous :). Also smokey eye really suits you! I wouldn't worry about your blog not getting comments/followers etc, its a lovely blog and you can tell how brave you are. So don't give up :) xxx

  3. I know exactly what you mean about the weather. 2 days a go I was sat in the garden reading my book and covered in sun cream, today it is pouring with rain!

    I love your eye makeup, I think the blue underneath looks great. I bought a blue eyeliner a few days a go so will try this.

    I adore your blog so I will definitly check back to read more of your posts! I wish you all the luck in the world with it, (although I am sure you don't need it).

    You are incredibly beautiful by the way!

    All the best,

  4. Thanks very much for your comments! I'm hoping to go driving this evening if the rain ever stops!! I'm a big fan of smokey eyes, I seem to do it nearly every day lately!!
