Favourite Fall Lipsticks

I am a HUGE fan of dark lips and bright pink lips for Autumn. Here are a few of my favourite lip picks for the colder months.

First up is my fave and it is ''O'' by MAC. I think this lip colour is over looked by a lot of people but I find it beautiful on. It is a dark brown shade with a hue of gold. I absolutely love this with minimal makeup and is perfect for fall.

Next up is a bright pink I am loving and it is ''Hot Magenta'' from Mememe Cosmetics. This pink is so vibrant I am so in love with it and have been wearing it almost everyday. It is very smooth on the lips and keeps my lips very moisturised. This lipstick is great for this time of year as some lippies can be drying on the lips and very uncomfortable.

For red I love NYX's ''Chaos'' it is a matte red and so pigmented. this colour is perfect with just a winged out liner. it is a bold colour and lasts all day long. Believe me I tested it out on day in work and it lasted all through lunch without topping it up.  This is the perfect red lipstick in my eyes and super affordable.

I love an orange lip this time of year as it brightens up your face on those dull days. The Youngblood lippie is ''Tangelo'' is the perfect tango orange shade. This lipstick paired with NYX's butter gloss in ''cherry cheese cake'' is to die for. I just love this lip combination. Perfection every time.

Next for the killer dark lip that everyone raves about is MAC's ''Rebel'' this is the perfect blackberry shade and one of my all time favourite MAC lipsticks. It is the ultimate shade for this time of year and a cult favourite by all.

Lastly on my list of favourites is a new one I picked up from Catrice in ''Alluring Pink'' This lipstick was an absolute steal at just €3.99 and I love it. The pigmentation and pay off is something a high end lipstick would give. It is creamy and long lasting and perfect for every day wear. I wear this a lot of the time in work and it lasts all day long.

Finishing off with two lip glosses. The first is from Maybelline in ''Hibiscus Haven'' this is a colour elxir and in a sense is a lipstick/lipgloss. This is perfect to wear alone and give great colour pay off. The last but my no means least is NYX's butter lip gloss in ''Strawberry Parfait'' This gloss is loved by all and is perfect paired with any of the above pink lippies or simply wore alone. I just love the butter glosses they are out of this world and so affordable.

I would love to know your fall favourites! Please leave them in a comment below. I hope you enjoyed that post

Journey to Fitness - Yoga Hub

Hey lovelies,

As you all know I am on a journey to a new healthier and cleaner lifestyle. Although I have fallen off the wagon in the last few weeks I am jumping back up on to the bad boy. 

I have partnered up with Yoga Hub to bring you a various blog post about yoga and healthy eating.

Every Friday I will be bringing you a Friday Fitness post all about healthy eating and fitness. I hope you enjoy

Yoga hub is located in the heart of Dublin, in Camden place. It is a calm and relaxing studio where one can take time out from the busy lifestyle, de-stress, exercise and grab a bite to eat in their amazing vegan and gluten free cafe.


I had the pleasure of attending one of Sarah-Janes Yoga 1 classes last night and had an amazing experience. I have always been a fan of yoga in the past and used it as a great method last year while I was losing weight. 

It is one of my favourite ways to relax as well as exercise. There is a large misconception with yoga and many people believe it is all mediation. As the class begins and ends with slight meditation and mindfullness don't be fool, you will break a sweat. 

Depending on the type of yoga and the intensity of it will determine the level of exercise you do. 

In last nights class it was more of a beginners yoga where we learned to breathe properly and preformed some sun salutations.

Sarah- Jane lead us through our practise is a calm and relaxed manner but was always there to guild us in our movements.

I felt amazing after this hour long class, totally relaxed and slept like a baby last night.

I will definitely be keeping this up and have more blog post related to it. Yoga hub have a variety of different classes to suit everyone. 

             Visit their website here to learn more about them and view their time table

      I would recommend yoga to everyone, fitness fanatics, athletes, even pregnant women

Brand Mention - YoungBlood Cosmetics

Hey lovelies,

Today I have a new brand to talk about. Young Blood mineral cosmetics recently sent me some products to try out. My first impressions of the brand is very good. The packaging is stylish and looks very expensive. I tried out the lipstick and lipgloss at work yesterday and loved them. I got heaps of compliments on my lips and everyone wanted to know what it was.  

Here is some background into the brand. Youngblood is the premier luxury mineral cosmetics line from the USA created by Pauline Youngblood, a former medical aesthetician.

Pauline began formulating her first loose mineral foundation, which provided excellent coverage and a natural appearance without clogging the pores.

The products are easy to use, long lasting and can stand up to heat, humidity and perspiration. 

Youngblood's lightweight foundations look virtually undetectable which providing flawless, buildable coverage.

Youngblood mineral products use only the purest, most premium grade minerals. Their makeup is free of talc, parabens, oil and fragrance.

Youngblood mineral liquid foundation retails at €35.00. The deep sea hydrating complex quenches parched skin for a healthy radiance. A special blend of rare reduced salt deep sea water, botanicals and more than 20 ocean minerals soothes and revitslises skin and the pore free finish wears for hours!

The Lunar dust retails at €29.00 and is a light - reflecting mineral highlighter that adds a sun-kissed finished.

The pressed mineral rice powder retails at €33.00. this product controls shine and helps diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines to create a flawless, long-lasting matte finish.

I love the compact it comes with. It is so handy for on the go with the great mirror included.

I am loving this lipstick. It retails at €18.00. This lippie is lanolin free and includes a special blend of natural oils and vitamins and leaves the lips  fresh looking for hours.

This lipgloss is the perfect combination for the lipstick above. It retails at €19.00 and adds colour and shine all day long. the plumping shades provides noticeable results without tingling or  irritation. They also contain natural oils and vitamins to condition and care for the lips.

Here is a swatch of both the lipstick in Tangelo and the lipgloss in Devotion 

These lip products lasted all day long and I love them on the lips

Here is where you can find Youngblood.

I will have a tutorial soon using these products so keep an eye out for that.

Lots of Love
