First thing I have are these pair of pink and white shorts from Primark, because Ireland is getting a bit of sunshine I really like these because their really cute.

 Next thing I have is this black and grey top I also got from Primark, I love these because you can wear it with a skirt or jeans it will go with anything, I love the lace detail at the top and and the colour of the grey at the bottom.

 Next I have the Inis arose body lotion which i'm in love with at the moment, I put it on everyday and I love the smell, this came in a set with a perfume.

 Next i have the Vaseline Lip therapy in Cocoa Butter, I love the smell of this, I put it on every morning because it leaves your lips smooth and also giving it a glossy look.

 The next thing i have is this Nail Polish by Yes Love in the colour Purple Glitter, Its a purple nail polish that has bits of light silver glitter in it and i've been wearing this all month and you can get these anywhere they sell nail polish! The last thing I have our these jeggings from Topshop!

How do you do the Super Split

Hi guys! Sorry i havn't posted in AGES! I have been really busy and our wifi was gone for about a week and it was really slow! So i'm going to try post at least once or twice a week, today i'm going to show you how to do the super split hair which you might have seen on Kendall Jenner, Gwyneth Paltrow or Megan Fox.

STEP 1:Wash your hair with K-Pak shampoo and conditioner.Hair is cleansed while also protecting and stregthening. This is €16.00 and from Joico.

STEP 2: Finish with with a cold rinse to increase shine and seal cuticles and pores.Fine hair can get oily can get oily and this is great trick for longer lasting styles.

STEP 3:Part hair in the centre and apply a small amount of oil to the ends and mid lengths to smooth before drying.
STEP 4: Dry with a large round brush in a downwards direction as this helps smooth the cuticles even more

STEP 5: When dry, secure hair with bobby pins behind your ears and spray with Joico Humidity Blocker to prevent frizz and give the style memory without leaving any stickiness

That's all for today! I hope you liked it, please comment! We also have a instagram account which is:

Review on Toni and Guy Classic Shine Gloss Serum

Hi guys! Today i'm going to be doing a review on the Toni and Guy Classic Shine Gloss Serum!

 This helps the hair to reduce frizzness which i need! and also gives a little shine to it. I got this online at the Toni and Guy offical website because i needed a serum that tamed my wild hair! This was €4 but reduced to €2.50. It's very worth it. It doesn't have a really strong smell to it like hairspray it has nice light hairspray scent to it.

That's my review on that and i really recommend it i've had it for a few days and it works already! That's all for today, Bye guys!

Get Revising!

Hello everybody! So in Ireland anyways, Exams are starting! So today i'm going to show you how to get revising if you hate studying, like me!

Draw up a revision timetable
I recommend taking breaks in between studying, frequent ones. I also advise to mix the order of the subjects. This is my timtable.

Physical Activity is very important, in particular during intense study time. Even going for a small 30 minute jog after a day of study will make a huge difference.Physical Activty increases heart rate which makes the blood circulate faster. This in turn ensures that brain gets more oxygen which increases productivity and reducing tiredness and stress.

Find a quiet space
This is a pretty straightfoward one: you desperately need a place where you can be uninterrupted.Your room,your school or libary will do.Be careful with revising in a coffee shop.It is a popular option, however it does not work for everybody and people often get distratced.

Get down to it in the morning 
You have to make a start at some point and doing it sooner rather than later is a very good idea. Try to stick to my draft revision schedule and start revising in the morning- research shows that you are more likely to do all the planned work if you start early, because as it gets closer to the evening, there is bigger tendency to get outside.
Spice up your revision
Use a bit of colour! Drawing colourful learning maps will help you memorise facts.What is even more interesting is the fact that colourful notes are easier to memorise then plain black and white ones. Give it a go!

Do plenty of past papers
Ask your teacher for some past papers or google them yourself.Most exam boards nowadays put a lot of emphasis on exam technique and simply familiarising yourself with it before the exam can often save you time and help to earn marks at the exam. A lot of examiners do not bother inventing terrilbly innovative questions once you have done three or four past papers chances are that some of questions that come on the day will look familiar.

Make summary notes
Making notes is by far the best way to memorise lots of information. We all have been there, sat down reading a textbook and lying to ourselves that the time is being used productively-it is not! The best way to memorise information is by making notes over and over again.It may be incredibly tedious but the thing is that the most successful candidates often make as many as three sets of the same notes in a run up exam which help them to memorise the required information

Think positive!
At the end of the day, it's not all about studying. There are plenty of people who did well in school without 100 percent in every single exam, or who were actually pretty useless at school. Your life isn't over if you don't ace an exam, so take the pressure of yourself.

That's all for today, Bye!

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks

Haiii there,
So I am sorry about two of my posts in a row being about lipsticks but I did not really know what to do. So today I am doing a review of the maybelline colour sensational lipsticks. I own two of these and love these. Mine our from fragrance direct which is a discounted website, therefore I actually only got them for £2.99 but they are in store £7.99.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Popstick- 020 Tropical Pink

This is my favorite one out of the two I own. The colour of this is not as bright as it looks in pictures. This lipstick is actually very suttle. It looks bright in real life, but it is kind of sea through , so the colour is not as a bright as it looks. I love the packaging of these lipsticks, and the colour of this is just lovely. It is a wearable lipstick for anyone. But I think it suits people with a tan. This is a lovely lipstick for the summer.  It applys very nicely, however does not last that long.

Maybelline Colour Sensationals -808 soft pearl.

This lipstick colour is more nude. But I really like, it a has a really nice pearl finish to it. I do not think it suits me as much but I really like it. Again the packaging is super nice. This lipstick is very moisturizing which I like and matte. It applies very evenly and just looks so nice on the lips. The pigment within this lipstick is very nice and bold.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Morning Routine!

Hello Alison here! Today i'm going to be doing my Morning Routine! Let's get started.

Okay! So the first thing i do when i wake up is have breakfast! I have some tea (of course) and piece of toast with either nutella or butter, Also i have been loving yogurts lately, I love the passion fruit yogurt and Onken yogurt!

In the morning i am such a clean freak, So i make my bed, Clean my desk and my dresser!

Then i get changed! Usually i just wear some tracksuit bottoms, Tshirt and cardigan when im at home!Today i'm wearing a Converse Cardigan, Littlewoods USA Print Tshirt and some Primark tracksuit bottoms! Also i wear the Sure deoderant.

I then fold my 'Grumpy In The Morning' Pajamas.

I brush my teeth after i'm done cleaning my room with Colgate toothpaste (:

After i am done brushing my teeth, I go into my bedroom and put on Astral Moisturiser which i put on every morning because i feel fresher! Then i put on my handcream which is either WonderStruck or Taylor by Taylor Swift or Red Door by Elizabeth Arder. After that i put on my lipcare it's either Vaseline Rosy Lips, Vaseline Cocca Butter or Carmax.Then i spray some Bodymist on my body because i only put perfume on if i'm going somewhere. My favourite Bodymists are the RCH (Royal Collage Hall) Bodymists which come from a set there is bodybutters and the scents of the sprays are, Strawberry, Mango and Passion Fruit.

Then after that my day includes, going on my laptop, Doing schoolwork and chewing gum :)
