November Wish List!!!

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

The countdown to Christmas has officially begun!!!

It's exactly one month to Christmas Eve today, so exciting!!!

I'm going to save my Christmas Wish List for next month a bit nearer to Santa's arrival :)

Here's a few things I'm dying to get my hands on this month...

Over €100

Harvey Norman

Apple iMac 27"
Price: €1942

Ok so this is waaaaaay over €100 but still. I want /need one!
As some of you may know I'm doing a Post Grad course in TV Production at the moment, and we're learning how to edit using Final Cut Pro X which is all on Mac. So, I'll probably need to get one at some stage in the future.

But they're so expensive, it's scary!!!

If you want to buy me one you can get it here. ; )

Under €100

River Island

Green Sequin Bodycon Dress - River Island
Price: €87

How fab is this dress?! I love it! This would be the perfect dress for a Christmassy night out! I love the dark green colour and sequins are a must for the festive season.

The shoulders are kind of padded I think so that gives it great structure and it's got a cute scooped back which is fab.

I love dresses like these with sleeves that end just above the elbow. They're really flattering.

I might need to pop into River Island and splash the cash on this one... or just wait for the sales!

You can get this beautiful dress here.

Under €75

Ingot's Limited Edition Christmas Palette
Price: €75

I want this sooooo much! It's soooo fab!

I love all the colours, and they're perfect for winter. I love a good brownish smokey eye so this palette is just perfect!

At €75 its a bit steep for me... I might have to twist Santa's arm for this one!

I just love it though!

You can get it in Inglot stores or online here.

Under €50

Alex and Ani -

Alex and Ani August Peridot Birthstone Russian Gold
Price: €36

I've wanted an Alex and Ani bracelet for ages! I really like this one. I think it's really pretty.

I was born in August and I really like my birthstone, the lovely green peridot. It's just a really pretty colour and you don't really see it very often.

I also love the way the Alex and Ani bracelets are all about positive energy.

I might buy it for myself as a little present as its not really that expensive!

You can get it online here.

Under €25

Glitz n' Pieces

iPhone 5/5s/5c Princess Phone Cover
Price: €12.50

How cute is this phone case?! I love the way that Snow White is holding the apple. It's just like the movie!
I have an iPhone 5c and it's kind of hard to find nice cases for it as most places only stock 5 and 5s cases, so when I came across this cutie from Glitz n' Pieces I had to have it! It's sold out though!!! So sad! Hopefully it'll be back in stock soon cause I'll definitely be buying it!

You can have a look at it on Glitz n' Pieces website here.

So yep! That's it for my wish list this month. Hopefully a few of these things will magically appear in my house over the next few weeks... Won't be getting my hopes up though!

Have a fabulous week everybody!

Hey guys!

So sorry that the blog has been so quiet over the last few weeks! College got really busy with assignments and work experience really suddenly, and I've had zero time to do anything blog-wise other than posting the odd photo to Instagram or Facebook.

Speaking of Instagram and Facebook, you can follow me here:

Anyways on to this post...

Garnier Micellar Water

I'd heard so much about the Garnier Micellar Water range, that I'd decided to try it out for myself.

Before purchasing this product, I always used to just use wipes to take off my makeup. I know how bad that is and soooo many people told me to stop using wipes, but I guess I was just being lazy and too tired to make an effort!

But ever since I bought the Garnier Micellar Water, I've been using it every night!
I got the one with the pink label for sensitive skin (there's 3 different types).

I actually love this stuff! It gets every speck of makeup off my face. I feel so fresh after using it.

All you have to do is dab a little onto one of those round cosmetic pads and wipe it over your face.
It usually only takes me 2-3 of those tiny pads and all of my makeup is off! Magic!

It says on the bottle that it'll last up to 200 uses, and I believe it! I've ony had it for a month and a bit and there's only a quater of the bottle gone!

I got these cotton cosmetic pads in Penneys the other day and they're great. They do the job and BONUS: they're only 75 cents! #BARGAIN

I feel like my skin has really cleared up since I began using the Miceller Water. I can really see the difference in my pores. 

The Garnier Micellar Water is hypoallergenic and you can use it to take off eye makeup and lipstick.

Here, have a poser-y pic of me using it:

But yeah, 5 stars all the way!

I got the Garnier Micellar Water in Boots using one of their 3 for 2 deals, I think there's another one of those deals on a the moment!
You can get the Garnier Micellar Water from Boots here. (It's reduced to €4.53 online right now!)
And like I said, the cosmetic pads are €0.75 from Penneys/Primark.

I'm converted! This is definitely one of my new essentials! Never going back to makeup wipes!!!

Let me know if you get the Micellar Water!

Have a lovely day!
