Long time no see! It’s just been so hard to get back to writing with college and so many other things going on at the same time. So just thought it’ll throw together a little post about how fast money goes the day you get paid.
Isn’t pay day like the most awaited day in your week/month? Because magically as that day approaches you realise how many things you have to buy and boom before you know your pay is gone. (usually on things you don’t even need)
One thing you need to know about me is that I’m obsessed with nail polishes since I stopped biting my nails. And with these recent purchases I’ve gone from 94 to 102 bottles… And that’s kind of impressive if you ask me for someone who had pretty much no nails 2 years ago.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been gathering all the bits and pieces I’ve bought recently to throw together a little haul. Now, if I can actually get around to writing it, you’re in for quite a bit of a lecture because I’ve been buying too much stuff. 😀
So today’s entry is going to be about a mini haul of Sleek Makeup! Boots have a 2 for €14 offer on at the moment. 2 for €14! Though mind yourself it’s probably sold out of stock in your local boots unless you live next to Liffey Valley. If you’re interested in buying some goodies from Sleek and availing of the offer I’d strongly advise to just order online on their website and it’ll get delivered into the boots store of your choice, that’s what I’ve done for my stuff. 🙂
I got 2 eye shadow palettes and their highlighting palette. Continue reading
I haven’t abandoned you or this blog, just been overly busy with college and work. But since I’ve sprained my ankle pretty bad recently, I’m home with plenty of time on my hands so back to writing we go!
Having so much spare time I decided to treat myself to a little bit of retail therapy, lipsticks to be more exact. So off to the Freedom Makeup website I went and God, I fell in love.
With a 3 for 2 mix and match across makeup and 20% off your first order, you really can’t go wrong. Their Facebook page is constantly updated with new offers so make sure to check it out! Continue reading
Hey everyone! Today I want to show you some of my most recent beauty buys, a mini haul you could say. In advance sorry for the dirty makeup brush, forgot to take pictures before using it and haven’t washed it just yet. Some of these products I’ve been using for quite a while now so I’m currently working on reviews for those but got a massive haul coming up as well in a matter of days so that’ll keep me occupied for a while. I was going to write this post as little description of each of these but ended up with mini reviews, oops.
Since I had some spare money in my budget I decided to buy some beauty stuff, because you know, you never have enough of it!
When having a look around Penneys I remembered that I couldn’t find my tweezers for quite a few days now so when I saw the 1.50 set of two, I knew straight away that I need to buy them! The pastel pink and minty green are just super cute to me.
Another thing I absolutely needed is a clear nail polish and I went for the Wet n Wild clear nail polish. Since I started growing my nails I’ve been going through nail polish like crazy, especially clear one. Previously I’ve been using the Nail Tek II: Intensive Therapy and was fairly happy with it but that was back in my non-college days where spending so much on a nail polish was acceptable.

A few days ago I had a brilliant idea to change my room decor a bit. While I didn’t have any set vision for it or anything, I knew which side of the room I wanted to change and will have a post about it soon enough!
Being the broke student that I am the first port of call was Penneys of course and to be honest I found everything I needed to work my magic. Also some make up bits but that’s not what this post is about.
I ignored the shoes section since my primarily focus was home stuff and set off on a hunt to find the wicker storage baskets. I remember seeing them in a minty shade a few weeks back. However now they only stock them in grey which is still fine with me. I’m planning on using the smaller one for nail related items like nail files, nail polishes and nail varnish removers and the bigger one for all sorts of creams, sprays etc. Overall, getting 2 wicker baskets for €8 isn’t bad of a deal since they’re actually decent in size and you can use them for all sorts of things. All I know is that once these are back in the minty green shade I’ll be back buying another set.
I love Penneys’ €1 candles. They’re in a glass container and have this metal screw on lid. This time I got a sandalwood one and another vanilla one because lately I’ve been really obsessed with candles. I suppose they just set the mood and stuff but anyways. 😀
While having a look around the store I noticed a discount shelf with some picture canvas which apparently were to be discounted from €5 to €2. There I found this cute ‘together is a wonderful place to bee’ one with a bee motive throughout it. It’s one of the triple ones where you can separate them out or just hang them closely together to form one picture. When I got to the till I got a pleasant surprise because it scanned in at €1! Win-win.
There were so many other home things that I’d love to buy but the time will come eventually. 😀
Hello everyone! I went on a mini shopping trip to Penneys yesterday and bought some real nice things! I also stopped at Boots to get some bleach for my much needing it roots. Pictures coming right up:
- #iwokeuplikethis or #instagorgeous pillow cases:
I am so so so so in love with those! It could be the pastel mint green or the little phrases but they’re just amazing! I couldn’t find a matching duvet cover but my local penneys is tiny so I’ll have a look in one of the City Centre ones and hope to find it! At 4 euro they’re a steal.
- Ultra soft super skinny jeans in blue:
While I can never buy any sort of jeans from penneys, I got those in a size bigger, even just to wear them around the house because you don’t always get a 5 euro bargain.
Recently, I’m in love with candles. Scented candles to be more exact. And this pastel pink, Pink Grafefruit, candle from Penneys smells truly amazing, burns for ages and costs just a mere 1 euro! Amazing!
- Flats, flats, flats:
Being a size 7.5 I can never ever get any sort of shoes because many places don’t do half sizes. So I always end up buying size 8 shoes and well, these flats were a true and proper steal at their discounted prices. The blue ones have sort of a suede finish and would be a perfect alternative to high heels if you want to be comfortable all night! The cream and black ones are just ideal for that spring/summer weather once it gets kind of warm in Ireland. Either way, paying 5 euro for two pairs of shoes is an excellent deal.
- Jerome Russell BBlonde powder and cream peroxide: Having heard amazing reviews about it I’ve decided to give it a try, since my roots are way over-due at this stage. Plus I’m sick of all the dyes I’ve tried leaving a brassy shade on my hair, even after numerous washes with purple shampoo! I shall give this a try in a week or two and let you know of the results.
- Sally Hansen polish remover:
I was running out on my nail polish remover and these were selling at ‘buy 1, get 1 half price’ so I got both the regular and strengthening version. Since I actually have nails, you’ll see me painting them like 50 times a week and the nail polish remover just disappears. I swear, you’d think I drink it, that’s how fast it goes. Hahahaha.
Well that’s it! Hope you enjoyed it and feel free to drop me a comment!
