Just a quick outfit post of what I wore St Stephens night! Dress is from Penneys about a year ago! Sorry for the short post I'm hungover (again) while writing this!
I'm enjoying the Christmas period at the minute so it'll be outfit posts for the next week, Normal posts will resume in the new year! 
I hope you're all having a good christmas and I'll talk to you soon.

PowderPocket Launch Box* - Ireland's First Beauty Subscription Box

Today I have an exciting post! I've always been a fan of beauty subscription boxes and have always been jealous of the UK girls as they have a few different beauty boxes to choose from. Although some ship to Ireland it ends up being a little too expensive for what it is. 
When I spotted a new beauty box was being launched in Ireland I tweeted about how I couldn't wait for them to launch so I could see what the box was like before subbing. Powderpocket actually messaged me then asking if they could send their launch box to me. I MEAN WHO WOULD SAY NO?!

Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip Oil Free Moisturiser* Review

As a beauty blogger its not often I'm 100% loyal to a company, yes I love certain products but as soon as a new product comes out I'll choose to buy the newer product to try rather than my usual one. 
But since trying Cocoa Brown when it first came out - a year ago - another tan hasn't touched my body. Anytime I see anyone asking for a tan recommendation I'm nearly in their faces screaming 'COCOA BROWN COCOA BROWN!', and its not just tan, I'm loyal to the company as a whole. Its not often I love every single product a company brings out.
I haven't used another exfoliator since using Tough Stuff. And now, I won't be using another moisturiser!

I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tag

I was tagged by Charlotte from she's one of my favourite bloggers and is such a lovely girl so definitely check her out!
This tag is all about drugstore makeup so let's get into the questions!..

What's your favourite drugstore brand?
Ooh that's a hard one! Probably a tie between Rimmel and Maybelline.
Catrice have quite a lot of products I'm really interested to try. 

What are your favourite face, cheek and lip products?
Face: Probably my foundation. At the minute I'm using the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and have been really impressed. I've repurchased it twice and I'm about to get my third bottle!
Cheek: I'm loving the Sleek Contour Kit at the minute. It's the cheek kit I use everyday! 
Lip: Hands down the Revlon lip butters! Amaze.

Least favourite product?
This is a hard one too. Lately I haven't really been liking the finish the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder gives. I don't know what it is it just doesn't look good! That's the only product that pops to my head when I think of least favourite! 
Ooh also I bought one Barry M nail polish in a peachy colour and was NOT impressed. It was so sheer it needed a million coats and ended up thick looking and took forever to dry. I won't be trying another.

Best make-up bargain?
When I found out essence were discontinuing their gel liner I was devastated, I managed to find one in the clearance basket for like €1 or something ridiculous like that. I was delighted! Haven't been able to find any since though :(

What's your favourite underdog product?
I would say the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealor.
It's so underrated. I bought it after seeing a well known YouTuber recommend it and I was so impressed. It's amazing, how more people don't rave about it I don't know! 

Over priced drugstore product?
Probably the Max Factor mascaras. That's the only thing I can think of.

Drugstore dupes?
Catrice have a great nude palette that I would call a cheaper Naked palette. Been eyeing this for a while to try now!

Drugstore products that aren't really worth the hype?
I've never gotten the hype with the apocalips by Rimmel. Maybe it's just because I'm not a lipgloss fan.

I tag everyone who reads this to do it :)

OOTD feat OMGFashion & New Look

hellooo strangers,
I know, I know I haven't done a post in yonks! But rest assured I've gotten my arse in gear and I'm back in business!
I wore this outfit last night, me and a friend went for a Chinese (all you can eat.. A tight skirt was not my best idea!) and then met up with another friend for drinks! It was a surprisingly good night for a Sunday but I'm paying for it today! 
My skirt is a black and gold sequin skirt* from omgfashion. I loooovee this skirt! I got quite a few compliments on it too! The one thing I wish I could change is that I wish it was a little bit longer so I could wear it higher up on my waist without showing my bum. Other than that I love it! I paired it with a plain black tee from good oul Penneys, a pair of black tights and my New Look gold buckle wedges. I threw a black blazer on top because it was FREEEZZINN'. The only jewellery I wore was a few bracelets from Penneys and my black inverted triangle necklace from eBay. 
I apologise if the layout of this post is a bit crap, I'm posting it from the Blogger app on my phone and we all know how crap that app is!
Also sorry the photos are crap I'm still trying to find a good place to take outfit photos!
