Cute Little Bedroom/Gift Ideas From Penneys!

Hi Lovlies ♥... So since I haven't done a post in about 2 weeks I taught I would do another little one, but I couldn't think of anything to do as I haven't bought any new make-up or products lately. (I'm saving for a new laptop charger!) *sigh* Anyway, I recently got a couple of cute little gifts so I taught I would do a little post on them :) All three of these are from Penney's. And yes, I'm Penney's obsessed as you can tell! :)

1. First is a hanging jewelry holder and is so handy for anyone like me who is a bit obsessed with jewelry. It has small & large compartments and is double sided, great idea for bedrooms with not much space for all your jewelry or little bits & bobs. It costs €4 and also comes in pink.

2. Second is this adorable cupcake candle that my Sister bought me :) I just love it! I probably will never even light it its that cute :) This would be a great little gift idea or if anyone just loves candles and wants to take up some space with these little cuties! This little cupcake candle costs €2.50.

3. Lastly is this cute small purple hanger that has 11 little hooks and can hang from your wall or your wardrobe. I use mine for long necklaces and bracelets but it can be used for anything from belts to small bags and whatever other little bits & bobs you have lying around :) This hanger costs €3.
You can get all three items for less that €10! It's a steal really :) Anyone that's doing their room over or just looking for some cute little ideas you should definitely check out Penney's home stuff!

OOH LA LA Penneys False Nails!

Red, French nail & Polka dot false nails :)
So since I have absolutely no nails myself (I'm a biter!) I am a big big fan of false nails and I have recently been to Penney's for a bit of shopping and discovered these adorable false nails - I didnt even know Penney's do false nails but I was quite pleased they did when I seen these ones. They have a couple different designs to choose from - French nail tips, black with white polka dots, red, leopard print and purple. These nails are just to cute, great designs and for an amazing price! These nails are quite small and short which I love since I have quite short nails and I like more of the natural false nail look. The glue is also included and is very strong and holds your nails on for about 2 days before you might need to stick one or two back on ;) I would recommend these nails for a night out or maybe if you want super cute nails in just five minutes. Although these nails can be quite brittle and bend easily I still love them for their cuteness and how quick it takes to put them on and also the price. These nails are ONLY €1.50 per pack!!! Yup, €1.50... amazing price!  So if any you false nail lovers out there have tried these let me know your opinion too! :)

My Everyday Make-Up Products That I Couldn't Live Without...

1. Essence Foundation in Soft Nude 
2. Pressed Powder from Avon in Translucent 
3. Essence liquid liner in Ultra Black
4. Essence eyebrow pencil in 02 Brown
5. Rimmel Lipstick in 006 Pink Blush
All products used here.
6. Lancome  Mascara - L'Extreme in Black

I taught I would do a post on my favorite everyday make-up products since I use these six products the most and have been using these for years. These products range from Essence to Lancome, and prices are from €1.75 to €25... most if these are very affordable prices that many people would be able to afford! So lets start with the foundation, this foundation is Essence and I have been using this for about two years now and love it! It has great coverage and suits my skin colour perfectly and it is only €3.99 - great value!! Although if tend to re-do your make-up a lot and put coat after coat of foundation on, this isn't for you, as it can go quite blotchy but when done once and a good powder is used it can last all day and stay perfect. Now onto the pressed powder, this powder is from Avon and I  love love love  it!! Its one of my favorite powders Iv ever used, it is light and airy and doesn't look cakey over your foundation, it also gives great coverage and gives your make-up that perfect finishing touch. It is also great if you have very oily skin or make-up. The liquid liner is also by Essence and is brilliant for anyone like me who does the cat eye flick on your top lash, the brush is pointed and creates the perfect line. It also lasts very long, Iv had mine around a month and a half and theres still a good bit left considering I use this every day. This liner costs €2.99 and is really worth trying if you haven't already tried this! Again my eyebrow pencil is Essence and is around €1.75, its very dark brown which I love since I have quite dark hair and really suits my eyebrows, this pencil also lasts extremely  long and is definatley worth the amazing price! This lipstick is my favorite lipstick Iv ever bought!! Iv bought this lipstick over and over again and absolutely love it, it is by Rimmel and costs €7 - so worth it!! Its gives a lovely soft pink colour to your lips - great for Spring/Summer to add a little colour to your make-up. Now for the dearest product but still very worth the price - this mascara is quite expensive but is really worth it, its brilliant!! It is very thick and black and gives you a dramatic dark eyed look and really lengthens your lashes! This mascara has gotta be THE best mascara I have ever used! It is by Lancome and costs around €25, which is very expensive but really is a great mascara! I highly recommend trying out this mascara... If any of you use or have tried any of these products I would love to hear your opinion too, so comment and let me know :)

My Top 5 Favorite Essence Nail Varnish's!

I love love love Essence nail varnish! Its been one my my favorite brands for years. There quality products for great prices and you can buy Essence in nearly every Pharmacy! They are usually €1.25 each which is a really affordable price. I love there nail varnish's because they have a wide variety of colours and so many to choose from. There nail varnish is thick in texture which covers the nail well and you don't have to do multiple coats... Although some can chip quite easily, you can get clear nail varnish and put a coat over your dry painted nails and it helps your nail varnish stay longer and chip less. Since I love my Essence nails varnish's and I am always changing my nail colour I thought I would share my five favorite colours from Essence. If any of you are big Essence fans like me share your favorite colours or other products with me, Id love to hear! Here they are; My Top 5 Favorite Essence Nail Varnish's: 

The second & last one look the same but one is red & the other is pink, its just my camera :)

1. 70 Nude it!
2. 61 Fame Fatal
3. 53 You Belong To Me
4. 21 Fabuless

NYX - Make-Up Artist Kit!

Another great eyeshadow (and blusher/lip gloss) set is the NYX make-up artist palette that I bought about 2 months ago in TKmaxx on sale for €10. Yes €10!!! It was a steal I couldn't pass up and I'm very glad I didn't! This set is amazing! It has the colours I love from naturals to bright and colourful! There are 36 eyeshadows and the top also slides out and underneath is a blush and lip gloss section! There is 4 different colour blushes and bronzers; 3 sectioned blushes and highlighters and 5 lip glosses. The colours are great and there's so many to choose from, there very smooth and stay very well on your eyes. The blush colors range from dark brown to light pink. The highlighter is great and shows up really well in pictures. Its also very useful if your going away for the night/weekend or on holidays as it has all the colours you'll need and some blushers and lip glosses too! Its also a great present idea for someone who loves make-up! I highy recommend this to all you eyeshadow lovers, you will LOVE this palette!

For those BIG eyelash lovers!

Lashes on! :)
Just a little post for all of you fake eyelash lovers out there! I recently bought a set of 10 pairs of fake eyelashes from Ebay and really really love them! You can choose from three different styles - short and thin, long and thin or long and thick. I bought the long and thick ones as I already have quite long lashes and need these ones for extra thickness. They are very cheap and only cost €5 for the 10 pairs and for delivery, you also get a little bottle of glue included. Although the glue is very small and might not last for the 10 pairs you can buy eyelash anywhere from pharmacy's to Eurostore's! These are great for those of you who wear false lashes every day or those of you like me who just like to wear them for nights out and special occasions. And if you keep them in good condition you can re-use them over and over again.

Other false lashes I love are the Essence big and flirty lashes, there very long and thick and create more of a dramatic look. The glue is excellent and keeps your lashes on all night long and whats even better is there only €2.99!

CATRICE - Smokey Eyes Set!

Without a doubt eyeshadow is my favorite beauty product, I love it because you can create so many different looks and can really open out your eyes and make them look bigger, which we all love! There are so many different types and colors to choose from! I have ALOT of different eyeshadows and I am a big fan of smokey eye colors and sets - My favorite smokey eye set has definatley got to be Catrice Smokey eye set. It has three different color eyeshadows and one creamy black liner! First there is a creamy pale color, a light brown and a deep brown/black color. You also get a little eyeshadow applicator and liner brush. I love this product because the eyeshadows are easy to apply and comes out very smooth. The colors also blend in well together and creates the perfect smokey eye! It is very inexpensive too, and only costs around €5 and lasts very long! And as it is small and compact you can carry it in your bag anywhere you go. I highly recommend this product for the perfect sultry smokey eye for those nights out with the girls or dinner dates with your other half :)

Elf Stipple brush - The love of my life!

First of all if you haven't already got a Stipple brush then you better go out and get one right now!! I dont know what I ever did without mine. For those of you who dont know what a Stipple brush is ill tell you right now! A Stipple brush is a mix between a foundation brush and a blusher brush in one! Its brissels are very soft which makes your make-up go on nice and smoothly and feels great on your skin! Now how to use it - When applying your foundation first use your foundation brush and when you brushed it all in then get a small bit more of make-up on your hand and brush your Stipple brush over it and start applying it all over your face, very softly. It gives you a clean, smooth and perfect coverage and no blotches! It also keeps your make-up on for longer so you don't need to keep applying it over and over again which can give you that blotchy look. There are also a lot of different brands of Stipple brushes out there and many of them can be very expensive like MAC. The one I use and absolutely love is Elf, and I paid about €10 for it on Ebay - It was the best money ever spent! I hope you all enjoyed reading this post and if any of you go out and buy a Stipple brush, let me know what you think, and I hope you love yours as much as I love mine!
