Happy New Year

Hey Guys!

As well as the post from earlier on today, I wanted to post a little thank you to all of you who have watched my videos, liked them, subscribed to my channel, read and followed my blog, or followed me on my social media accounts. It has been a great year for me; I attended my first ever blogger event, met some lovely fellow bloggers who I am now glad to call my friends and I even came up with (and stuck to, at first) my own uploading schedule.


So, I would like to wish each and every one of you a prosperous Happy New Year, full of good health and happiness. I do hope you will continue to stop by my blog and Youtube channel every now and then to say hi, I am certainly aiming to be more disciplined in my uploading routine.

xoxo, Emma

My Picks Of The Beauty January Sales

Hey Guys!

I have been shopping recently (natch), and I thought I'd share some of the beauty bits I picked up in the sales with you.

Boots gets a special mention as all of their gift sets are currently half price, including a whole heap of Soap & Glory goodness, so I picked up the Crazy, Sexy Kohl gift set for the grand 'ol price of €9. It includes an adorable silver make up bag with four full-size waterproof kohl eyeliners. They have a gel-like consistency that I generally associate with a long lasting eyeliner. The colors that come in the pouch are a black, a brown, a metallic blue and an emerald green.


I also picked up a tub of The Righteous Butter for €3.50, an amazing bargain! I use this stuff by the bucketload around Christmas time because I usually get a Soap & Glory gift set containing the fab body butter, as I did this year, but it is usually around €15 which I can't really justify spending on body lotion so I thought I'd stock up while it's cheap!


Finally I picked up by favorite bargain of the sales, the YSL Babydoll Mascara gift set from Debenhams. It was reduced to €21.66 which I think is incredible for YSL. I have ben testing it out the past few days and is certainly up there on my top 3 mascara list (yes, that list exists). I haven't tried the eye makeup remover yet but I'm excited to give it a whirl!


Have you picked up any gems in the sales?

Merry Christmas!

Hey guys!

I know I'm a bit late, but I'm just chilling out here, full up from my third consecutive Christmas dinner and I felt like trying out blog post writing on my new iPad mini. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas/ holiday season if you don't celebrate Christmas, where you were all treated and you treated the ones you love too. I had such a relaxing day, with chocolate for breakfast and a fabulous meal where I loaded up on roast potatoes and Brussel sprouts *heart eye'd emojis* before flaking out on the couch with my family, watching terrible movies.



A "What I Got For Christmas" video will be going up sometime next week, as will my Best of 2014 video. If you have any more video/ blog post requests leave them down below or on my YouTube channel.

Much love,

Xoxo, Emma

A Flash Of Gold

Hey Guys!

First of all can I just say that Eyeko customer service is fabulous- I ordered a little something for my sister on the website, quite possibly influenced by the fact that you got a free rose gold eyeliner with any purchase, and when I got the package, I got another free eyeliner that I may be slipping into my sister's stocking. Two free products that add up to cost three times the amount of the product I actually ordered? Pretty damn good if you ask me.


So here is the little beauty that I've been sporting the past few days, a twist up pen that dispenses the product into the felt-tip fibres, ready for you to cat-eye flick to your heart's content. I have been doing my usual black flick on my upper lash line and contrasting it with the rose gold liner on my bottom lash line. It adds a certain something to an otherwise plain makeup look, and it makes up for my being too lazy to put on eyeshadow!



I wore this ice-skating yesterday (I totally floored myself and my knee is paying for it now) and it stayed put all night long.

xoxo, Emma

P.S: It's nearly Christmas!

Christmas Gift Guide

Hey Guys!

I know I didn't do a Christmas Gift Guide here on the blog this year, but I thought I'd point you in the direction of a Gift Guide I did for the lovely Hannah a few weeks ago. If you haven't visited her blog, you may not have heard of her online magazine. She asked if anyone would like to contribute to the magazine and I gladly volunteered.


If you still haven't finished your Christmas shopping or just fancy a spot of window shopping, check out the gift guides I wrote here. It's your one stop shop for Gift Sets, and a DIY Gift Basket you could put together for a loved one. The magazine is also chock full of other Christmassy gifts and articles for you to read with a nice cup of hot chocolate ;)


Let me know what you think.

xoxo, Emma


P.S: Have you seen my newest video?

My New Berry Lip Love

Hey Guys!

Wow, feels weird to type that after such a long time away from blogging. I was in Boots a few months ago and spotted Maybelline's newest lip offering; a creamy lip pencil in a selection of incredible shades. Sometimes lip pencils can be in sickly pinks and a token red, but Maybelline brought out a great selection. The shade that caught my eye was Berry Much, a dark berry color that just screams autumn/ winter.


I thought that with it being creamy and 'velvety', it would smear all over my face even if I just rubbed my lips together, but I was very much mistaken. I wore this on half of my lips for Halloween (I was a half skeleton, half human type thing) and I worried that it would mix with the white shade on the 'skeleton' half of my face and I would look like an extra from a horror movie (although not always a bad thing with it being Halloween). But, it did not budge one little bit. I decided to try it out again on another night out- I'm a party animal, didn't you know? I was out until 2am and I had actually forgotten to bring the pencil with me, but when I got home, my makeup looked as fresh as it had done at 7.30pm the previous day. *Insert all the heart eye'd emojis here*



I have heard rumors of these pencils being a dupe for the coveted NARS lip pencils. As I haven't tried NARS' offerings, all I can tell you is that you need one of these pencils in for life. Race ya to Boots?

xoxo, Emma
