Common Beauty Conspiracy Theories

Weird conspiracy theories, which have been going around on social media lately, are something that I've been obsessing over. There is just something really interesting about them even when you don't actually believe they are true. So for this post, I thought I would tell you some of the most widely believed conspiracy theories about the beauty industry that exist today, and you can be the judge of whether they are true or not.
1. There are irritating ingredients purposely put into foundations that make your skin worse so that you need to use more of the product at a time which means use the product up faster so you need to buy more. This is supposedly done so the big makeup companies can sell more products and make more money.

2. Chapstick put small amounts of fiberglass into their products which makes you get tiny cuts which are invisible to the naked eye. This makes your lips feel more chapped which means you have to keep applying Chapstick to soothe them which leads to Chapstick selling more products.

3. Shellac or gel nail polishes make your nails really weak once it is removed so the only option you have to get strong nails again (without having to wait a month or two) is to get the Shellac or gel polish done again. This results in more products sold and more appointments/money for the beauticians who promote them.

4. Companies put better quality ingredients into their sample sizes (especially in skincare) to get people hooked whereas their full-sized products actually contain a worse formulation and don't work as well.

5. Similar to no. 4, beauty companies make some of their products (including full-sized) extremely effective initially and invest a lot of money to put the best ingredients into them. Once their brand or that product becomes well known, however, they swap out certain ingredients for cheaper ones.

So there you have it. Those are some of the most common beauty conspiracy theories out there. I don't know if I actually believe any of them, some of them are pretty crazy, but they are definitely interesting to hear about. If you know of any other beauty conspiracy theories that I failed to mention in this post, then make sure to tell me about them below in the comments. I hope you have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.


*Disclaimer: I am not saying that any of these theories are facts. They are all only theories created by individuals in the beauty community.

My Favourite Interior Design Trends (Summer 2017)

Interior design isn't something I've much experience in since I live at home. My room is basically like a 12-year old boys room, and I've done a few things to make the office look nicer but I don't currently have the budget to really make it how I want it to look. I see these amazing "interior inspiration" posts on Facebook and Pinterest and think about what I'm going to do when I have the chance to decorate my own house, which I'm betting is gonna be a lot of fun. The room I'm most excited about designing in my future house is the office, but I guess it would also be pretty cool to design a kitchen. I get pretty confused about what I'm going to do with my future bedroom because, currently, my bedroom is pretty much a representation of me. It's not "stylish" or "trendy", and it's not the prettiest room in the world, but it has the perfect mix of the tomboy part of my personality and small girly part. I love my room so much because it is really me, but it's my childhood room so I feel like that is an important component in designing your childhood room. For my "grown-up" room when I move out, however, I have no idea what approach to take. For the other rooms, I have a couple of ideas/trends I want to follow, but for my bedroom, I'm a little scared of it looking too pretty or girly without really feeling like me. I think I will have to do a bit more research to really perfect my "grown-up" room but for now I'll share with you the current trends in interior design that I really love at the moment that I could possibly be doing in the other rooms, if they are still on trend by the time I buy a house, which, let's be real could be a very long time a way. 
my favourite current interior design trends summer 2017
The inspiration for me choosing these trends today is seeing them in the brand new free e-book by Chill insurance called Inspirational Interiors, where they not only talk about the current trends in interior design but also decorating tips and how to keep your home safe (one good tip for keeping your home safe is to never position electronics or expensive things like computers or TVs in front of the windows in case it increases your risk of burglary, which was good to know) The ebook has some cool information in it and useful tips. I'll leave a link to the e-book here if you would like to check it out or, the creators of it. So anyway, onto the trends I'm considering for my future house.

The first interior design trend that I liked which was mentioned in the ebook is geometric. This is actually something I could possibly do for my bedroom because it's not too girly, and is a little bit edgy. Geometric is basically incorporating shapes into your design and the majority of the time, strong colours are used. It's definitely a trend to keep in mind for designing my house because, from the examples I've seen of it online and on Pinterest, you can do geometric in lots of very different ways, so two geometric designed rooms can look completely different from each other.

The next trend I loved from the ebook was the marble effect. This is definitely a big one among bloggers and beauty gurus. It is really pretty, especially when paired with white walls/furniture etc. The only thing about the trend that I don't like is that I think it would feel like I was trying to be something I'm not... one of those perfect Instagram models or beauty vloggers. I do however love the idea of it for a blog background so watch out, maybe one of these days you'll see me review a product with a white and marble background.

The last trend that I'm talking about today is my favourite one: rose gold. I love rose gold. This is definitely something I would be incorporating into my office, and actually, have a little bit in my current office which I am doing a room tour of, along with my bedroom, on my YouTube channel in the next month so keep an eye out for that. Rose gold is just so pretty, especially in interior design and I remember a year or two ago, Zoella got rose gold decorations for her Christmas tree and I loved the idea so much.

So those are my favourite interior design trends at the moment. If you were interested in any of them or any others you should check out the ebook, Inspiration Interiors as it's free and has some cool stuff in it. Also, make sure to look out for the page with the stormtrooper in it (I definitely need one of those in my house).

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did then make sure to love it on Bloglovin or share it on Facebook. Also, make sure to leave a comment down below telling which current interior design trend is your favourite. I hope you have a great day and I'll talk to you soon. 


*I was asked to promote this ebook for Chill Insurance. This does not change the fact that I was 100% honest in this post and truly think that this free ebook is worth checking out, especially if you are decorating or designing your home.

It's been a while since I wrote a blog post and a lot has happened over the last few months. I don't really know where to start.. Basically, a couple of very significant things happened that led to them being probably the worst couple of months of my life. I don't really want to talk about the other things yet, maybe not ever, but today I want to talk about Derek. 
In May 2008, when I was 15, after about 14 years of begging my mom for a dog, Derek wandered into our garden. A few months previously, my mom decided to give in and allow me to get a dog after I completed my Junior Cert exam that June so I had already been keeping an eye on our local animal welfare website in case the perfect dog appeared. (She says that she only agreed to get a dog to shut me up because the year before Derek arrived I literally begged her for a dog every single day).

So not too long ago I realised I had reached 1700 followers on Bloglovin for my blog.

It really means a lot. Anyway, to celebrate, I decided to hold an International Giveaway to give you the chance to win a Real Techniques Core Collection makeup brush set.

(Bare in mind that I wrote the review in 2014 so the pictures aren't great). This brush set retails at €28.99.

Lush Cosmetics Butterball Bath Bomb Review

I've never been a bath person before. Until recently, I hadn't taken a bath since I was a child but now I love them. I don't even know how it started, just one day instead of having a shower, I had a bath, and that's when the obsession with bath bombs started. I started off with some that I found half price in my local pharmacy and then I moved on to some of the more expensive ones. So when I visited a Lush store in Cork over a month ago, I was dying to try one of their famous bath bombs for the first time and see what they were like. 
lush cosmetics butterball bath bomb review
The bath bomb that caught my eye, well nose, was one called a Butterball. It was love at first smell. I didn't know any of the ingredients at the time, I just knew it smelt amazing, but it turns out that it was mainly a vanilla musky sort of scent, which is one of my absolute favourite scents on earth. That was pretty much what sold it. I didn't even read the little card in front of the pile of Butterballs otherwise, I would have found out that it also contains cocoa butter which melts in the bath and nourishes your skin, a major plus. Also, in case you didn't know, all Lush products are handmade and completely cruelty-free.

How to Get A Job at Benefit Cosmetics | The Interview Process

I thought that for today's post, I would let you know what goes on during the Benefit Cosmetics interview process to become a BeneBabe or Beauty Advisor. Whether you are just curious or you are planning on getting a job there, it's handy to know the different steps of the process, from when you hand in a CV/Resume to when you are offered a job. I've been through this process twice, one time where I didn't get the job and another where I did. (I will be focusing more on the second time around because it is most recent but I will also be comparing differences between the two experiences as I go along.) So here are the steps I went through:

Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask Review

I haven't bought Lush products in a really long time because there isn't a Lush near me. When my friend and I planned a day trip to Cork recently, we made sure to go to their Cork store. I was really excited to buy some new bath bombs (which there might be a post on soon) but I also ended up getting a fresh face mask. In Lush, they have a thing where if you bring back 5 clean, full sized Lush pots that you used, you can get a fresh face mask free. My friend's sister had used about 15 pots so they said I could have one of the fresh face masks free because she didn't need 3 of them. 

I was a bit lost when I was trying to pick out a face mask. I had never used a Lush face mask before so I hadn't a clue which one to go for. One of the girls who worked at Lush was really lovely and talked me through each one of the face masks, suggesting which ones would be good for my skin type. I have normal/combination skin (which is weird because I used to have pretty dry skin and I have no idea how it changed) so she recommended either a seaweed mask or their Brazened Honey mask, which is the one I went for. The honey mask is very exfoliating and is supposed to leave your skin looking fresh and radiant. It also has detoxifying properties. Here is the description that Lush gives of it:"Fresh fruits are blended with warming Ayurvedic herbs and spices, ground almonds to polish and moisturising honey." 
You have to keep the face mask is the fridge and it is supposed to last about a month. The girl in the shop said I should get about six uses out of it but I've already used it four times and it isn't even half gone. It has quite a strong fresh smell which I like but my mom hates so it depends on your preference. You can just apply it to your face to clean and detoxify your skin or you can rub it in as you apply it and take it off to really exfoliate your skin. Although I got this one free, these fresh face masks usually retail at something like €9.95 for 75g, which initially sounds expensive but you do get at least six individual masks out of it. 

You can apply it as thick as you like but I'd say you really only need a thin layer for it to work. I like to leave it on for about 15 minutes before I remove it (after it has dried and hardened). Once I have washed it off with warm water, my skin feels super soft and looks a lot clearer and brighter. My sister used it too and she loves it. 
Overall, I really like this face mask. It leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean and really soft. I really like the scent and the feel of it on my skin (it's not gooey or a very watery consistency). The price could be better but you do get quite a bit of product for your money. After using this mask, I'm am looking forward to trying out some of their other ones, maybe the chocolate one next, although I'd probably eat some. What are the qualities you look for in a face mask? Let me know in the comment section below. I hope you are having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

MUA Matte Lipstick Totally Nude Review

I've tried some nude lipsticks in the past but never really was a fan. The only one I really liked was MAC's Shy Girl which was sort of a peachy/pink toned nude lipstick. The completely nude lipsticks just sometimes look like you have foundation on your lips, I feel. So when I found this MUA lipstick in the colour totally nude (with a hint of a pinky tone running through it) in Superdrug for only €1.35, I thought I'd chance it and see what it was like. 
The first thing I noticed is that I really liked the colour on my lips. It didn't make me look washed out or that I had foundation on my lips. The lipstick itself is quite creamy for a matte lipstick. After using other MUA lipsticks since this, I've noticed that some of them are quite light and don't last on the lips. This isn't the case with this one. It has a heavier feel to it than those ones so not only lasts quite a while but also has a pretty high pigment compared to their other lipsticks. What I love the most about this colour is that you can wear it with any makeup look or outfit. Although it has a pinky tone, it is pretty subtle so it doesn't look too girly or bright on the lips.
In terms of price, for just €1.35, you can't go wrong. Some of the other MUA lipsticks, I think are worth that price but, with this one I wouldn't mind paying €8 or €9 for it. I feel it is as good quality as a Rimmel lipstick or another brand that would cost a lot more. I also really like the simple white packaging and the way you can see the colour of the lipstick by the bottom of the tube without having to open it in case your looking for a colour in a hurry.

Overall, I really like this lipstick. From the colour to the quality to the price, everything about this lipstick seems really great. I can't really think of any bad aspects of this lipstick, other then maybe it's not the same quality as a MAC lipstick which is extremely understandable for a lipstick that only costs €1.35, but other than that I like everything about it. Have you ever tried an MUA lipstick before or has any cheap lipstick surprised you? Let me know in the comments below. I hope you are having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

My Style Crush | Ariana Grande

I feel like I haven't been very fashionable lately. I've been mostly wearing what it comfortable and quick to put on. I'd love to be one of those people who always wears amazing, fashionable clothes but my main issue is being cold. I always seem to be cold so I end up just wearing hoodies or sweatshirts and still end up being cold. When I actually am having a good day in regards to fashion and makeup, the trends I love are over-sized shirts and jackets, and I'm literally obsessed with checked shirts wrapped around the waist. This is where Ariana Grande comes in. She rocks both of those looks along with some other great casual ones which I love. One of my favourite things about her style is that she makes casual outfits seem dressy by either adding a pair of killer heels or by her stunning hair and makeup. This is why she is my new style crush.

I really need to get one of those over-sized denim jackets, although I'm not sure if I would be able to pull it off. I love how Ariana uses denim so much in her style, whether it is her ripped or stonewashed jeans or one of her over-sized jackets. She always looks cool and stylish at the same time. What do you think? Do you like Ariana Grande's style or is it just not for you? Let me know in the comments below. Also, make sure to tell me who your current style crush is. I hope you are having a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Fixing Spray Review

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Fixing Spray Review
Makeup Revolution are a really great brand for their affordable palettes, but how do their individual products measure up? I've tried one of their baked highlighters before and liked it but, quality-wise, it doesn't take much for a highlighter to work well. A setting spray, on the other hand, will quickly show if it works or not. It either makes your makeup stay in place longer or it doesn't. So when I bought the Makeup revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray for €6.45, I was intrigued to see how well it worked. 

Looking at the Pros of this setting spray first, it sprays like a light mist. It's not as if you are being sprayed full force in the face with water like it can feel with some other setting sprays. It also has a fairy nice scent and is not too overpowering. I like the packaging, just like with most of the other Makeup Revolution products. It has a classic, simple design. It is also travel-friendly and very easy to throw into your handbag when you are on the go without weighing you down too much. Sadly, I think those are all the pros I can come up with. 

Onto the cons. I didn't see any difference in the lasting power of my makeup after using this setting spray. My foundation lasted the same amount of time without getting oily as it usually does. At the end of the night, my makeup didn't look any better than it would if I hadn't used any primer or setting spray. Also, for some reason this spray made my eye makeup run. I don't know why but a few of the times I used it my eye makeup started to run down my face a while after using it, and other times my makeup started to run as soon as I applied it. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong like applying it too close to my face but there was no difference when I held it even further away. It suggests that you use it at arms-length away from your face and that's what I did but it still made my makeup run. 

I've basically stopped using this product because I haven't really found any benefit from using it. It actually made my makeup look worse instead of better. It kind of feels like a waste of money so I'll probably use it once in a while if I'm not going anywhere important just to use it up and see if I've changed my mind about it. I won't hold my breath for the day when I start to like it, though. 

So that was my review of the Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Fixing Spray. It's a shame that it didn't work very well but I guess you can't expect that much from something that is so inexpensive. If you liked this post the please make sure to give it a love on Bloglovin or a +1 on Google Plus. I hope you have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

A Little Progress | New Year's Resolutions Update

Now that we are nearing the end of January, I think I should reflect a bit on my new year's resolutions. Here's my blog post of what my new year's resolutions are this year in case you missed it. Looking back on that post, I think some of my goals have shifted already. My main goal at the moment, which wasn't really a new year's resolution, is to lose the 6 pounds that I gained over Christmas. This has been my main focus for the past week and will continue to be my focus over the next 3 or four weeks. There is a TV show called Operation Transformation that is on at the minute where a number of people try to lose weight over six weeks by eating differently and exercising more. I thought that it would be a helpful motivational boost for me to follow the show so I'm cutting out all the bad food and to sticking to a 1500 calorie diet until it ends in a few weeks. I'm also exercising at least 30 minutes a day. I'm doing quite well at the minute and haven't had any mad binges which actually was one of my new year's resolutions (to not go on any mad binges and to have a healthier relationship with food).

I've found that I'm struggling with some of my other resolutions because a lot of my focus and energy is going to losing weight and getting in shape. Productivity wise, I've been struggling since I started the diet. My blog posts have gotten a little less regular in the last week and I find that I keep putting off editing a new video to go on my channel. Hopefully, I can sort this out and find a way to stay on schedule and continue my diet. This would probably be much easier if I could somehow manage to achieve one of my other resolutions; getting up early. 

I can honestly say, flat out, that I haven't once gotten up at 7 and stayed up since the new year started. A few times, I managed to get up at 7 but ended up falling asleep again an hour or two later. If I could manage to change this then I know the productivity thing would stop being a problem. I think I need to change my mindset about it. Sometimes I feel like it's all or nothing, that I need to be working on stuff all day, non-stop, or else I get nothing done. I need to be thinking more along the lines of a little progress each day, is better that working all day one day and not doing anything the next. If I could just get into the habit of doing a couple of hours each day while getting enough breaks throughout and having time to myself in the evenings then I feel like my life would be much more balanced. 

What do you think? How do you balance time for fun and time for being productive in your day-to-day life? Also, do you have any tips for getting up early? Let me know in the comments section below. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, the please make sure to give it a love on Bloglovin or a +1 on Google Plus. Have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

What is the Best Conditioner for Dry or Damaged Hair?

Since colouring my hair purple last year (after bleaching it), my hair became extremely damaged and tangles really easily. I've been looking for something to combat the dryness and to get my hair in better shape for a while now but nothing I tried has helped very much. When I found this Henna Treatment Wax Intensive Deep Conditioner in a local pharmacy for only €4.99, I had to get it and see if it helped. 
beauty formulas henna treatment wax intensive deep conditioner review
I'd heard from different people that this is supposed to be amazing and really restores your hair back to being healthy, shiny and soft. I also heard from my mom that it was a big thing to use years ago when she was young, that everyone was using henna treatments in their hair. So I started using it on my hair once a week. The way it works is that you use your shampoo as normal and then apply it like a normal conditioner, but then you leave it in your hair for a couple of hours, wrapped in a warm towel. Then you just wash it out like normal and dry your hair like you would usually do (I always allow my hair to dry naturally without using a hair dryer because my hair dries quite quickly and it's better for your hair not to use heat on it). 

After the first use, I didn't notice any difference in my hair. It still tangled really easily and was quite frizzy. I've been using it for 2 or 3 months now once a week and it has made a difference to my hair. Not an amazing difference where my hair is silky smooth and never tangles but it is easier to manage now. It definitely restored my hair somewhat. I'd say it takes a least 3 or 4 uses before you see a noticeable difference, but then you might see a difference quicker if your hair isn't as damaged as mine. 

This Henna Treatment Wax is by Beauty Formulas. As I already said, It was only €4.99 which is really affordable but I guess you get what you pay for. It did restore my hair somewhat but I don't think it is a revolutionary product that makes your hair instantly restored back to how it was before. So here is my question: What is the best conditioner out there for dry or damaged hair? Have you found one? Let me know in the comments below. 

I really need to sort my hair out soon, both colour and quality. I'm planning on going back to brown soon because the colour seems to be ruining it and also, I don't really like the colour anymore, especially when it gets faded looking. I hope you liked this blog post. If you did, the please give it a love on Bloglovin or give it a +1 on Google Plus. I hope you have a great day, and I'll talk to you soon.

Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes 2017

So awards season has come around again and I thought that for today's post I would show you my best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes 2017. So without further ado, here are my best dressed:

Best Dressed

Lily Collins
Lily Collins looked amazing in this girly Zuhair Murad gown. The light pink material paired with the bright red lip and her porcelain skin is absolutely stunning. She is my best dressed of the night. 
Lily Collins wearing Zuhair Murad at the Golden Globes 2017
Mandy Moore
I loved this look on Mandy Moore. This stunning Naeem Khan dress with a plunging neckline and flowing cape looked gorgeous on her.  She was a very close contender for best dressed.
 Naomie Harris
This golden figure hugging dress looks perfect on Naomie Harris. She looks amazing.
Emma Stone
I love this gown on Emma Stone. The stars on the dress were inspired by the Film La La Land which she won an award for on the night. Also, her hair and makeup is gorgeous as always. 
 Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell looked stunning in this glittery Jenny Packham dress with plunging neckline. I like how the plunge wasn't a typical V-neck and didn't make her look overly sexy or trashy. She still looked chic and classy even with a plunging neckline. 
Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood rocked a different sort of look from her previous ones at the Golden Globes. Instead of wearing a dress, which she admits she loves to do and has nothing against, she wore a fitted Altuzarra suit to show women that they don't have to wear a dress if they don't want to, and she definitely pulled it off. 
Millie Bobby Brown
Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown looked really pretty in this sparkly Jenny Packham dress. Her entire look, from dress to hair to makeup was chic and elegant. A great look for the Golden Globes. 
So those were all my best dressed of the night, now onto my worst dressed: 

Worst Dressed

Anna Chlumsky 
This frumpy dress did no favours for Anna Chlumsky. There was no real shape to the dress and I really don't like the colour on her. 
Kerry Washington
From the waist up, I don't mind this dress, and she killed it with hair and makeup but the bottom half of the dress lets it down. I also really hate the weird detailing on the waist. Even with just that gone, I think the dress would be much better. 
Janelle Monae
When I first saw Janelle Monae on the red carpet, I saw her from the waist up and thought, this girl is in the running for best dressed. Then I saw the entire look and was let down. I think if the bottom of the dress was full length then it would be fine but it doesn't work as a mullet dress. All things aside though, I have to say, her hair and makeup looks STUNNING!!  
So those are my picks for best and worst dressed at the Golden Globes 2017. Let me know in the comments below who were your best and worst dressed of the night. Also, if you liked this post, please give it a love on Bloglovin or a +1 on Google Plus. I hope you have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

So this is my last blog post looking back on 2016, I promise. I figured I couldn't move forward in 2017 without sharing with you, my favourite blog posts from 2016. So here are my top 5:

2016 was the year that I discovered the brand Makeup Revolution and found out that they have some really great palettes. This is my blog post reviewing their Ultra Cream Contour Palette which is one of my favourite product reviews from the year. 
2016 was also the year I started my What I Ate Today blog post series where I documented what I ate each day in the hope that you might find it interesting. These type of blog posts are some of my favourites to read on other people's blogs so I decided to try them myself. This is the first blog post in that series. 
In this blog post, I tell you 5 simple ways to make yourself feel happier and more positive each day. This was one of my favourite posts to write from the year. 
Another one of my favourite reviews I wrote in 2016. I love Benefit so I wanted to see if this mascara compared to my favourite mascara by them, They're Real. Read the full review to see what I thought and if I prefer it to They're Real.
Towards the end of the year, I posted a blog post that answered a question that I, and apparently a lot of other people, had been wondering; how do I add tags to my blog on Bloglovin. It confused me that some people had up to ten tags on their blog, I had only one, and some people had none. In this blog post, I tell you why.

So those are my top 5 blog posts from 2016. Now I'm moving on from posts about 2016, I'm sure you are sick of them by now. I hope you enjoyed this blog post! If you did, then please give it a love on Bloglovin or a +1 on Google Plus. It would mean a lot <3 I hope you have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.
