Wizard PR event. In a Caravan!

Ok it was not all in a Caravan that would have made it a little bit squished. The other week I popped along to the Wizard Pr event in The Morgan Hotel. The event was to introduce us to some of the amazing brands that Wizard Pr advertise and that were new to our Irish Shores. 

Can I first off say the Wizard Girls did an amazing job even though they had just arrived after their flight been delayed the room looked great and so did they. They gave us some really informative information on each brand where abouts we can get them in Ireland.

I took a few snaps on my phone while I was there of some of the brands

Diego Dalla Palma an Italian Makeup Brand available in Marks and Spencer. Really excited about this brand  expect some reviews soon.

GlamGlow, I have been dying to try this after I saw it on Glitter mama wishes' Blog. Its been used for years in Hollywood on film sets and so on to give celebs beautiful glowing skin and now its here in Ireland. Be prepared Irish Ladies for sexy skin!

Cargo Cosmetics is the brand I am most excited about. They have everything you need in makeup, foundations, blushes eyeshadows, lippys and multi-use products. The packaging is to die for and girls check out the foundation packaging. Remind you of a certain childhood juice cartoon! I can not wait to review these for you.

These were all the photos I took but other brands at the event was Xen-Tan, Orla Kiely, Dr.Ceuticals, Filorga, Novexpert, Pur Cosmetics, Una Brennan, Freeze 24.7

Studding it up! DIY Studs

Getting a bit creative lately and picked up a bag of 100 silver studs on Ebay for 1 euro!! They did take 5 weeks to arrive but the buyer refunded me my money because they took so long and once they arrived I just repaid her. I was heading to a PR event yesterday at the gorgeous Morgan Hotel in Temple Bar, and felt that  my boots just needed a bit of doing up.

My boots are two years old and are on their way out, can not really complain I bought them in the children's section in Penneys/Primark for 14 euro. Bit of a bargain if I say so myself. So quickly before I popped out the door I quickly threw a few studs into the boots.

Not the straightest of studding but the great thing is the studs are easily removed and placed again. I am now thinking of what else to stud in my wardrobe.

Speaking of Ebay I have three dresses for sale my Lipsy dress was only worn twice and Topshop dress once and the blue one still have tags attached. Feel free to make me an offer.

Urban Decay Naked Basic Palette - First Impressions

This might surprise some of you but this is actually the first piece of urban decay makeup that I have ever owned. I won this palette on Lisa's wonderful blog www.misslisa.co.uk. At first impression I was shocked at how small it is, the palette is even smaller then my phone and I easily lose my phone in my bag so imagine this.
 It is a great little everyday palette, with five mattes and one shimmer. It can easily transform into a night time palette with the help of Crave and make a classic smokey eye.

I tried swatching them on my arm but the pay off from Foxy and W.O.S was not great, but I will not know for fully till I do a look with them how pigmented they are. Crave felt very chalky and I expect a good bit of fallout from it. 

Over all I am looking forward to using the palette and trying out some looks which I will of  course feature on the blog.

 Venus (Shimmer) 

Foxy (Matte)
 W.O.S (Matte)

Naked 2 (Matte)

Faint (Matte)

 Crave (Matte)

OOTN: Skulls and Bows

This is my outfit for work last Friday, I can wear whatever I choose as long as its primarily black for work. Sometimes its actually a nightmare not having a uniform because as a women we are constantly indecisive and  my room gets covered in clothes every Friday and Saturday night. Last Friday I choose my over sized skull top from Awear which I tied at the back. As a skirt I wore my body con Berska strapless dress which I have had for a few years now, its a staple in my wardrobe. I wore my high top studded trainers from Penneys which I picked up last week for work. I rolled my hair in Sleep in Rollers and styled it with a hair scarf from New Look.
