Hey guys!!

Today I’ll be sharing my favourite lip balms with you (and one that I really hated!!)

First up is Vaseline. All of the vaseline lip products are great but my favourite is the rosy lips one. It has a slight pink tint so it looks really pretty and moisturises really well. It also smells really nice but if you don’t like rose scents it isn’t for you!! This is my everyday, go-to lip balm. The only downside is the fact that it comes in a big tin. You get your fingers messy and it can be hard to find room for it if you have a small bag!

Next up is Labello. Cherry Kiss is the only one I’ve tried but I’ve loved it for years. It has a dark pink tint so it’s like a low fuss lipstick. The smell is amasing but again, if you don’t like cherry… I really like the stick format and it glides on really well. It’s also ridiculously cheap!

Next is MAC Tendertones. I did a review previously on these (at least I think i did!!) They are only available in some of the summer collections so they can be hard to get. They also cost quite a lot. They are really smooth and the colours are very pretty but sheer. Nice for everyday wear.

Next up is Carmex. I bought this when I had really dry chapped lips. It’s not hugely expensive and it is really effective. I usually use this at night as the formula is quite waxy feeling. I’ve only tried the original flavour. It has a hint of menthol so it feels quite cooling when you apply it. The smell is really sweet but has no specific scent. Definitely good for a chapped lip emergency.

Lastly we come to the Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick. I absolutely hated this!! I could taste the chemicals in it (yuck), the colour stuck to my chapped lips and emphasised them and it wasn’t moisturising at all. I had to apply it every 10 mins for my lips to be relieved. I was really disappointed as I had heard a lot of good things about this company and I was expecting a great product. I just could not recommend these to anybody!!! The colour selection was ok but they were a little pricy.

These are my favourite (and least favourite) lip balms. Let me know what your favourites are as I’m always looking for new ones!!!!

Talk to you again soon!!!


Hey guys!!! I’m finally back. Life got in the way for quite a while!!! I had to study to get back into college (which I succeeded in), then I had so much college work to do that I had very little time to do anything. Plus I got a boyfriend and he takes up a lot of my time. Anyway, I have a little break before I go on work experience so I have time to do some more blogging and hopefully vlogging!

On to the review!!!

This is the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief gel cream. It can be used as a moisturiser or as a face mask.

Texture: Thick gel formula

Smell: Unscented but has a light natural fragrance that is barely noticable

Price: Very expensive – currently €43.50 in Debenhams for 50ml.

Skin type: Any

My Opinion It works really well. When I first put it on my skin didn’t feel moisturised at all (it actually felt a little dry) but after about half an hour my skin was soft, smooth and felt really fresh. It took a few minutes to absorb so it shouldn’t be used if you’re in a hurry. I used it after a clay mask so my skin was rather dry when I applied it. I didn’t wash my face before bed and my skin still felt moisturised the following morning (and I had slept for about 10 hours so it was quite a while). Definitely long lasting. I would also like to add that I normally have an oily T-zone and even the next morning my skin was still matt! Also you only need a really small amount to cover the entire face so the tub should last quite a long time. It didn’t cause me any breakouts and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Recommended: Definitely if you can afford it. (I got it as a trial size when I bought a few other things from the company)

Final Thoughts: It’s not a product I would use on an everyday basis purely because it is so expensive. I would use this weekly as a moisture boost after a long week or a night out and your skin needs a pick me up. My skin looked and felt really healthy after using it. A really nice treat for your skin!!

Alternative Products: The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask – costs about €17. Not quite as good but a good alternative for a significantly cheaper price.


Being as clumsy as I am can be very hazardous. In typical clumsy fashion, I managed to stand on a piece of glass in my shower!

You may be thinking “Huh? Why would there be glass in your shower?”
Well a few days ago, the lampshade in the bathroom fell and broke. We cleaned everything up and there was no problems. Two days later (ie. today), I had a shower and stood on glass. Now I wouldn’t mind this much as it was a small injury but my dad had a shower only a couple of hours before me. My mum also had one yeaterday. So why am I the only one to stand on glass????????? It’s just typical!! A few years ago I stood on an earring and spent 20 minutes with my sister trying to get it out! I’m surprised I don’t have a hole in my foot!!

I won’t put up a picture since that would be kinda gross..

I came home from Germany last week but I was really busy so I couldn’t do a blog post on it yet.

Anyway, I noticed that my cactus was a bit brown and soft so I looked it up and it said overwatering was the problem. The solution was to let the cactus dry out of the pot so I went to take it out and the head came off completely and the inside was completely rotten. I never overwatered my plant; I only watered it once a month but it was only small and my room is quite humid so it might have been that I didn’t take that into account. I’m really sad now. He was so cute!!!

RIP Cactus!!!


(This is not my cactus but it is quite similar.)

So, as you can probably guess from the title, I’m going to Germany tomorrow!! I haven’t been on a plane for over 4 years so I’m really nervous!! But I’m really excited to be going!! I’m going to an ordination so I’ll be spending one of my days in a monastery and the next day we will go to his first mass and then drink the day away!! The next day we will be going to a lodge in the middle of the woods for lunch (a bit random, I know) and then we have a free day so we might go to visit the nearby city of Aschaffenburg which is said to be small but has an epic shopping centre!!

Weather is supposed to be good (above 20 C everyday) so I’ve packed lots of light clothes and two dresses from my collection of never-worn dresses!!

I hope to take tonnes of pictures for you all to see!!!

Out of curiosity, is it really weird that I’m most excited about the monastery???

I just watched the film Judas Kiss so I decided to tell you all about it!!!

General Plot: (taken from IMDb)

Failed filmmaker Zachary Wells is convinced by his best friend and hotshot director Topher into replacing him as a judge in their film school’s annual festival. Zach’s one-night stand with a student backfires when that student walks into an interview the next morning calling himself Danny Reyes, the name Zach went by when he attended the school. And Danny’s film, “Judas Kiss,” is a finalist in the competition Zach is judging. Zach’s film, also “Judas Kiss,” won the festival years before. As Zach scrambles for answers, a mysterious, chain-smoking campus tour guide, counsels him: “Change the kid’s past, change your future.” But how? Zach comes to believe he can mend his life by disqualifying Danny from competition, putting him on a different path than Zach followed. But will Zach’s plan work?

In case you didn’t notice from the plot, this is a gay film. I happen to have a strange fascination with gay films so I watch a lot of them and this one was definitely one of the best ones I’ve seen!

It’s a very intriguing film for several reasons:

  1. The weird time loop. The college student (Danny) and the filmmaker (Zach) are the same person.
  2. Judas Kiss. Throughout the movie you hear the opinions of everybody about the film but you don’t get to see the film until the very end. Danny keeps saying that the film is fiction but it’s like he’s covering the truth and that the film is autobiographical. You find yourself wanting to see the film a lot!!!
  3. Throughout the film there is an occasional odd kind of glowing light around some of the characters. At first you almost think you are seeing things but it keeps happening.  It is rather surreal!
  4. In general it is a very odd film. It is kind of realistic in its portrayal of the characters despite the fact that several of the characters are, in fact, the same person!

I really liked this film. I definitely recommend that you watch it if it sounds good to you. Also I really liked the soundtrack. I’m thinking of buying it on iTunes!!


Out of curiosity, have you watched any good films lately?? Leave a comment!!! 😀

So, every year in Ireland, at about this time of year, these really big, brown, hairy spiders start invading houses. They look a bit like mini tarantulas!! They have the creepiest ability to creep underneath closed doors!! It’s really scary!!

A few years ago, when I was still in secondary school, one ran into my bedroom!! It went under my bed and I didn’t see it again for nearly 2 months! I thought it was dead until one morning, when I was getting ready for school, it ran out from under the bed and into my school bag!! In the end I had to get a sweeping brush to poke at the bag in the hopes the he would come out again!! He did and then ran out my bedroom door and I never saw him again.

So, anyway, I have one of those spiders living in my bathroom lampshade at the moment. He’s been there for about a month and a half now and I’ve only seen him 3 times!! He build his web really weirdly though. He made it so it is like a floor hanging in the air. Instead of hanging upside-down like a normal spider, we walks on the air, all cool and nonchalant!! And since he came out of his home today, I took a picture, for your pleasure!! (In case you’re wondering, I enjoy torturing people!!!)


And he even has a little friend in the picture!!!

I just read this super cute manga called Cat Street yesterday and today!! Although I felt really foolish, I had a big grin on my face the whole time!!! I looked at the comments and most people seemed surprised that the girl ended up with the computer geek rather than the footballer, but I was really happy about it!!! I liked the computer guy too!!!! I just started watching the drama of it now too!! It’s not as good as the manga but it’s ok!

The name of it really reminded me of my house though. I live in an area with a lot of cats and any time you look out the window you would see a cat (or 3) passing!! I used to call it cat central station!!!

I love this picture!! It’s from “The Cat Returns,” one of my favourite animated movies!!!
