Day 30: In 10 years…

Wow in 10 years I’m going to be… 29. That’s pretty scary. I guess life is going to be a lot different than it is now but then again, a lot has changed in the last 10 years as well.

I mean, within the last 10 years I broke my leg, moved to Ireland, finished primary and secondary school, turned 18,  got accepted into college and managed to pass the first year of it. I also made and lost some great friends and met so many amazing people it’s crazy. I had my heart broken and probably broke someone else’s heart too. I’ve lost some loved ones and gained new ones. I got my first job and had first real money. I got into trouble for the first time but also got some awards at school. I reached some serious milestones and found myself disappointed numerous times.

Day 29: Things I’m looking forward to

There’s so many things I’m looking forward to, to be completely honest with you.

I can’t wait to get back to college. Having just finished 1st year, I’m actually buzzing for 2nd year now. I can’t wait to see the girls and get back to the routine I’ve been missing so much lately. Though I bet you once I’m back in I’m going to complain about the timetable and the trains but hey, apache student deals and chicken fillet rolls with sort that out, I’m sure. And I actually miss Dublin. Even though I didn’t live there, I still miss the place. There’s just so much positive vibe in the city, it’s amazing. And you always find something to do, be it go shopping or get food or whatever. Continue reading

Day 28: Q&A with Aleksandra!

edit-41Hey everyone! Today I have a special post for you, a Q&A with Aleksandra from fayettemaurelle.wordpress.com. Hope you enjoy finding out more about her and click here to read her blog!

Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and your blog?

Im 20 soon to be 21 years old. Im from Poland but I’ve lived in Ireland for over a decade. Im currently studying Business however last year I was a fashion student in Galway. I believe in fate and destiny and that everything happens for a reason.

Fashion is something I’ve always enjoyed, some people go for a run to relax and get their mind of things I prefer to go shopping. Although I’ve had my blog for quite some time I still think that its work in progress and I’ve still got a lot to work on in order to make it something I can be truly proud of.

 

What is the story behind your blog name?

One of my favourite books is called Tiger Lily. It’s a re-imagined tale of peter pan told by a fairy –Tinkerbell. Sometime ago I became interested in those imaginary creatures and came upon the name Fayette, Maurelle just sort of came about by itself.

Day 27: DIY Ombre Nails

Hey y’all and welcome to day 27 of the 30 day blogging challenge! Today I will show you how to do ombre nails all by yourself and honestly, it’s super easy!

I’m right handed and can never paint my right hand without it looking ridiculous. Therefore lately I’ve been obsessed with ombre-like nails because the whole point in it is that it doesn’t have to be perfect! Happy days for me and all those of you who are really useless with their non dominant hand!

Day 26: Wish list

Beauty

  • Tangle Teezer: after the last bleach my hair is In horrible condition! Brushing through it with my hand makes many hairs fall out, so you can imagine what happens when I use a hairbrush.
  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: There are so many amazing reviews for it that I need to try it out! Especially since I was going to buy the beauty blender which is twice as expensive. Got to love cheaper alternatives of amazing quality, right?
  • Benefit Majorette Cream to Powder blush

Day 25: Turn ons and turn offs!

I don’t know why but this seems like a fairly hard thing to write about! Anyway I will try my best and tell you about some of my biggest turn ons and offs in a guy.

Turn ons:

Well he definitely has to be an animal lover, that’s for sure. I’m dog obsessed myself so I definitely couldn’t handle someone who would hate on my dog. But seriously, if someone cares for animals they do have this soft side and they’re not just all tough. It’s nice. Continue reading

Day 24: Worst injury

There are so many people who had near death experiences so I’m extremely happy my worst injury wasn’t actually that serious! In fact, all we’re talking about here is a broken leg. I explained this briefly here, so read on to get the full story.

I really don’t know how I’ve managed to hurt myself while walking back from a church but the whole experience has definitely put a thick barrier between me and churches. The idea of going to one makes me think I’m going to break my leg again, weird, I know. Continue reading

Day 23: A letter to…

Dear Grandpa,

You’re gone almost 6 and a half years now but it still feels like we saw each other yesterday. I wish you were still here with us, without you everything lost its magic. The house, the family fires and meet ups, summer.

I was in 6th class on primary school and we decided to fly over to Poland for Christmas. In the end the whole family was over and we all had a mint time! It was the best Christmas of my life, simply because we were all there, whole family Continue reading

Day 21: The perfect low cal dessert!

We all love dessert, don’t we? I can turn down food and whatever but ask me if I want dessert and I’ll never turn that down. And a low calorie dessert makes the indulgence better, right? Less guilt and stuff! 😀 This is why I’ll show you how to make yoghurt jelly today. (Sounds weird, I know)
