Groupon Coupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Hey Dawls💋,

So basically today I wanted to talk about Groupon Coupons and how they can help you get some amazing deals at such reduced prices for all sorts of stuff such as weekends away, to get your hair done or a beauty treatment, maybe some money off for a store! There just so handy and you’d never know what you’d find on the site, you will actually be amazed at the variety! There’s really something for everyone!

These are just some that I found for the Disney Store coupons and you all know how obsessed I am with Disney lol 😂🙈!! It’s like Christmas all over again 😍 I also found some for Footlocker which is another store I’m obsessed with! Although it’s expensive and takes up a lot of wardrobe space being obsessed with shoes🙈!

Again I just want to emphasise how handy these coupons are, and not just for personnel use either! How perfect would those Disney store coupons be for a kids birthday party you needed to get a gift for? Or as a Christmas gift, there getting an amazing present which they will love you for lol and your saving money while still getting the quality you want!

Myself and my boyfriend Philip have also used it so many times for hotel bookings and nights away, we always had a great experience with it! You also have the option of checking out there Groupon FB Page and there Groupon Twitter Page.  So next time you need something go check out groupon before putting your hand in your pocket 😉

Wishing you,

Lots of Love, Laughter & peace

My Current Favourite Mascaras

 

image

Hey Dawls 💜

I just wanted to do a review about my two current favourite Mascaras that I actually use together lol and its been my first purchase of any  Essence Cosmetics     brand Mascaras 🙂

The first mascara which is in a pink tube and reads ‘I 💜 Extreme crazy volume mascara’ literally does what it says!

image.jpeg

The brush is sort of rubber with short bendy bristles, which gives the lashes a lot of product thus making them appear a lot thicker and full of volume! It’s costs Only €3.49! The only problem I have with this is that it tends to give too much product for the look I like which is why I use this mascara along  with the next essence mascara I’m about to tell you all about 😘

image

This mascara I thought was very pretty and it reads ‘Lash Princess false lash effect mascara’. It reminded me ALOT of the ‘There Real’ mascara from Benefit!

image

The brush is long and sort of angled, getting smaller towards the nib, the bristles are perfect for getting just the right amount of product on each lash and extending the lenght! This mascara only costs €4.09 . I find using both Mascaras together gives me the perfect look, which is major volume without any clumps and lots of lenght and structure 😍

Final verdict…. There such a great affordable price , great quality and gives amazing results👌🏻

Lots of Love, Happieness & Peace

Why I Became A Vegeterian

Hey Dawls,

This is just a quick little post I wanted to share with you about my recent lifestyle change

If you have been following my snapchat username @Colliiiee, then you’ll know that ive changed my lifestyle to become vegetarian very recently, today is my 9th day to be exact lol!

tumblr_n30onmi8YX1sohvpko1_500

Long story short I have always been an extreme animal lover and always thought since I was small that I could easily be a vegetarian but I just never went ahead with it. I watched a youtube video were the girl was vegan and she had a clip at the end about a cow who had just given birth the night before, her calf was taken from her before he even had a chance to feed from his mother and put into the back of a farmers van..what i say next made me cry so badly 😦 the mother followed and chased after the van with her little baby in the back… tears were pouring from my eyes and so I said from that moment I was going to be a vegan! Now I haven’t had meat since I started but as you know, vegans don’t eat anything that comes from an animal so that includes all dairy,eggs and the sort. I wasn’t too bothered about that but obviously its harder when you’re so used to eating all that sort of stuff. I love eating salads with a tablespoon of extra light mayo which I continued to do so technically i am not a vegan YET lol.

64380c57654fbc94172a830006000ef4

My plan is to just stay away from meat for the time being, stay away from the dairy and eggs as much as possible and then gently ease myself into not eating any sort of dairy or egg! This is not a diet its a whole lifestyle change that I am excited to make so I don’t want to take too much on at once and just feck it all up lol so this seems like the best plan for me 🙂

Albert-Einstein-vegetarian-quote-938x535

I know a lot of people are like WTF when people talk about being vegan or vegetarian as if there the crazy ones…but when you sit down and really think about it, you’re the ones eating these poor defenseless animals when there’s no need to like at all! You can live a full and even healthier life on a non meat diet so the only reason you actually eat animals is because they taste super good. Its funny but the more I research about veganism and vegetarianism the more this just comes to mind…If you believe in the story about adam and eve then you will know it…adam was told not to touch this one forbidden fruit, he was then tempted by the devil saying basically like its super yummy just take it, adam eat it and basically ruined everything and was cast out from the garden… I feel like meat is that forbidden fruit and everyone just ignores the harm its actually causing to themselves and animals because it tastes too damn good. Lol I know you probably think im gone cray cray telling holy stories and stuff but im not, its just what keeps popping into my head the more I learn about this incredible lifestyle!

Anyways lol that’s why I became a vegetarian and I am in no way saying you should because that’s your completely your choice. I just wanted to share my journey so far and let you know I am really loving and enjoying it, besides im an animal freak lol I just love them ! Until next time

My Review On Bia Beauty Skincare

Hey Dawls 🙂

I received some as it says on the box ‘Bite Size’ versions of the beauty skincare range to try out and test as you can see from the photo I took below 🙂

11923431_10153293975609864_292497930_n

Bia beauty is all about using ingredients that are good for the skin and you can actually eat if you wanted to because it’s designed to feed your skin! When Tracey, The founder of the company was explaining this, I was in awe at how organic everything was and so raw! The fact that she came up with this idea because she has a passion in this field I thought was amazing! I think now days everyone is looking for the purest and healthiest form of everything in every line wether it be beauty products or food! Tracey manufactures these products also in cork so it’s a local business!

I used the moisturizer, eye gel and lip balm every morning and night for two weeks straight and just found the results were amazing! The minute you apply the eye gel you can feel the area tighten so it would be great for regular use to get rid of or keep away wrinkles but also if you applied it before your make up it would certainly help tighten up the area 😉 The moisturizer…OMG it just made my skin feel so unbelievably smooth, I couldn’t get enough of it! It also smelled lightly of mandarin without being overwhelming which was lovely! The lip balm comes in such a cute little tin which you slide to open! It smells like lime and is so yummy! It just glides onto the lips without making them feel sticky or greasy which is always a huge plus lol!

bitesize-natural-face-care_1

Its only €10 for the above little Bite size package so you can try them out. You can get it Here! Sure why not….€10 for 4 mini products?? How could you go wrong!

I will definitely be picking up some more products to try out 🙂

Lots Of Love,

My Review on Tantastic Liquid Tan

 Hey Dawls💜

Today’s blog post is all about tan! I received This liquid ran and mitt from Tantastic in a goody bag at the Cork Bloggers Event! I couldn’t wait to try it out because I’ve never actually used this brand of tan before!

image

Before I applied this tan I followed the instructions which indicted to have your shower, any waxing or shaving done at least 24 hours before applying it! Give you skin a moisturize especially around dry skin problem areas such as knees, elbows and ankle where you could get tan build up! When I was applying it I also used there mitt! The tan as it says on the bottle is liquid so if your used to a more creamy or mousse texture then be warned to be carefull lol because it’s very runny, so make sure to keep the bottle close to the mitt when pouring it out to avoid any spillage and then squeeze the mitt so it will soak it in before applying to the skin!

I applied it all over my body just so I could give the best review! It turned out amazing on me! No streaks what so ever and a beautiful colour 😍! The best about the liquid tan is that you can build up the colour if you want it to be darker which is great because not everyone wants the same shade of tan👌! It’s rare for tan not to go streaky or patchy on me because I am so pale! So it is a lot harder because to build up the colour is a lot harder when you don’t have a dark base! The tan is fading amazing without going dirty looking and I have to say I think this is the best tan that I’ve come across so far! When you apply it you will see the colour guard so that you know were you’ve put it! I started building it and I loved the way the colour came out and as the night went on it began getting darker as it developed and I was in love with the shade 😍 I would say it takes roughly 4 hours to develop 👌

Its €20 for the Liquid tan and its €5 for the tanning mitt which worked perfectly for me 🙂 You can get these online on there site Here with free postage to the uk and Ireland 🙂

Heres my before & after without any filter!

image

I will 100% be picking up more of this tan and I will also be trying out some of the other products such as the glitter spray for your body 😍!

Lots Of Love,

My Review On the 14 Day Miss Fit Skinny Teatox

Hey dawls 🙂

I was kindly gifted the 14 Day Miss Fit Skinny Teatox exactly 3 weeks ago today to review and see what i thought of it! I Was so excited to try it out that when it came in the door only two days after I ordered it I was ecstatic! So first off that’s a great plus, fast delivery is definitely NOT over rated and makes ordering things online so much better in my opinion! It came with the foil plastic bag full of my teatox leaves and the cutest little rubber strawberry infuser to put the leaves into, there business card and the sweetest little handwritten card from Ruth who is the lady I was dealing with! Those little touches make all the difference! I couldn’t wait to get my Teatox started!

11755727_1689202231308294_4636753202539070372_n

So the prices go as follows,

If you buy the 14 day Teatox then its €24.99,

The 28 day Teatox is €44.99 and you get the strawberry infuser free,

and then the strawberry infuser on its own is just €5.00!

They are an Irish Company so postage is super quick!

The tea has a hand chosen mix of 9 herbal ingredients so you get the best teatox experience! The ingredients are

  • Goji Berry
  • Lotus Leaf
  • Chamomile
  • Pu’Erh Leaf
  • Sencha Green Tea
  • Lemongrass
  • Rhubarb Root
  • Fennel
  • Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Directions for use are to fill your strawberry infuser with your Teatox leaves, pop the infuser into your cup of boiling water and leave it to brew for 3-5 minutes, drink 3-4 cups a day using the same leafs!

11813286_1690424114519439_6648616368425583198_n

I personally done all the above but the minute I could see my water getting some colour in it and going sort of green then I took out the infuser and got almost 6 cups a day out of it! The taste is absolutely amazing! I don’t even know how to describe it…its almost like a cuddle in a cup lol. It just gives you that warm cozy feeling and its so amazingly good for you that’s the best part by far! If you have ever tasted green tea then you will know it has a real earthy taste to it but this teatox while obviously is super herbal and earthy it just doesn’t have the same taste! I found that it just filled me right up and I was o enjoying my cups everyday it didn’t feel like a detox at all lol! I could definitely add this into my daily routine without any fuss at all! You can also avail of the lifestyle plan from Miss Fit Skinny teas homepage and a diet plan if you want to use this to your advantage mainly for weight loss!

11745828_1689492971279220_2829348892529733860_n

Another thing I wanted to let you know was that you are safe drinking this Teatox if you are on a contraceptive pill as it doesn’t contain and senna leaves so it wont make your pill inactive! When I posted about doing a review on this teatox on my FB page I got some funny pms saying I hope you don’t have any surprises in 9 months lol and they explained that a lot of teatoxs make your contraceptive pill null and void! You don’t have to worry about this with Miss Fit Skinny Tea!

My Results were fantastic! I was trying to be healthy with my eating and I was going to the gym 2-3 times a week so all in all I lost 10 pounds while doing the Miss Fit Skinny Teatox! Unfortunately the long weekend broke me and I fell off the bandwagon and then the week later when I was determined to start fresh I got a nasty flu that left me bed ridden…Murphys Law of course lol But I know that the healthy lifestyle and this Teatox works perfectly together I will be ordering more to stay on track and lose these pounds again 🙂

Its a huge thumbs up from me guys ❤

So go on go on go on go on go on as misses Doyle would say lol have a cup of Teatox and see what you think!

Our Cloggers Meet Up 2015

Hey Dawls 🙂

I hope your all keeping in good spirits!

August the 8th was our Cork Bloggers group meet up! It was also my very first meet up as I am still so new to this amazing blogging world! I must say when my boyfriend Philip was dropping me off to the Market Cafe on Perry St , which is where it was being held and totally closed off just for us, I was feeling super nervous to walk in through the doors alone and start meeting everyone! Even though to be fair I already felt like I knew a lot of people through chatting on social media and watching there snapchats lol! Needless to say after only a few seconds I was greeted by everyone in such a happy and friendly manner, I felt right at home!

Here we all are

11857774_10153263687369864_704079992_n

I was never at The Market Cafe Perry St but I will definitely be returning! The decor inside was so pretty and sweet and the nibbles they provided were so different and yummy, perfect for a girly lunch date! The night got kicked off to a fantastic start with a talk from Tracey on her business Bia Beauty Skincare ! I loved listening to her story on how she started the company which makes skin care products good enough to literally eat!! It was so interesting. We then had a talk from two lovely girls from the  Elizabeth Arden counter and they gave us the chance to win an 8 hour cream if we rolled and 8 on the dice… but of course I rolled a 7 lol! Next came Nathan Adams also known as mister Cork to speak about how to handle social media negativity and so on while being in the public eye, which I have to say he was great and spoke really well!

11854075_10153263687324864_1146816003_n11851217_10153263687259864_978442145_n11880812_10153263687349864_2050052292_n

We all sat at group tables, were ever we landed really, with our glass of bubbly, a HUGE debenhams bag full to the brim of goodies and great company to have chats and ramble on about our blogging life and topics of the times! It was absolutely fantastic to finally meet the people I am chatting to the last few months and to be able to now out a face to the person! I enjoyed it emensily, but of course my sickness hit me that night, it was coming on for ages….as it does… starting with a sore throat but by the time I left the cloggers meet up I couldn’t breathe through my nose, my lips were SUPER dry and my voice was almost completely gone FML!! I was so looking forward to heading out afterward with the girls but no such luck this time 😦 ! Safe to say I cannot wait for the next event & I want to say a HUGE thank you to Shell whose blog is shell la belle & Marie whose blog is beaut mum for organizing the whole night so well!!

My Blog Illustration

Hey dawls💜

About a month ago I finally got my blog illustration done. I was sooooo happy with it and to finally have my own! I went researching and came across a very talented Irish girl called Emma from  Emma Kenny Illustrations! That’s her fb page link were you can see a lot of her fantastic work!

I told Emma exactly what I wanted from my illustration and how I wanted it to look, she added every little detail from the way my hair looks, to the way my make up looks to my tattoo on my foot! When she has your illustration ready she sends it to you so you can preview it and maybe ask to make any adjustments if you’re not happy with something or want to change anything! She is such a professional girl to deal with and so so nice! She just oozes with so much artistic talent and I would definitely love to work with her again!

Emma draws illustrations of all the celebs also and believe me when I say she is going to be absolutely HUGE in no time because her work just speaks for herself! Even Kim Kardashian had liked some of the illustrations Emma has created of her👌! Go you Emma!!

Here are the illustrations Emma created for me 😍

image image

I would 100% recommend Emma and of you haven’t already then go check her out, I promise you will not be disappointed ❤️

Lots Of Love,

My Review Of Wild West Wings Cork City

This evening philip was feeling peckish well actually no lol philip was feeling staaaarving! He didn’t have any dinner and I was after going to my mams for roast dinner earlier! You know when your just like meh for a while and then the hunger just springs on you! Well he didn’t know what he wanted so we said we would go through town and see. We were passing down washington street and out of the corner of my eye I saw Wild West Wings and said what about there… Philip immediately was like ‘yaaaa’, so we parked around the corner and in we went!

11778072_10153223603384864_2019704683_n

When we walked in the door there wasnt much seating downstairs but it was full besides one seating area in front of the door, we were greeted by a lovely lady that worked there and she offered the seats by the door or to go upstairs, so we chose upstairs so we wouldn’t have a draft on us! The decor was really nice and went perfectly with the theme of the restaurant, more downstairs then upstairs I would say, but a great little extra was they played an american radio station which totally tied in all the elements of this restaurants theme!

11756655_10153223603424864_1499048573_n

We ordered a main course portion of buffalo wings which described them as crispy with spicy sauce so we said yeah that’s perfect! They also came with a portion of chips and some garnish. As I said before, I was after my dinner so I wasnt getting anything but oh my god when those wings came out they look so yummy! When I tasted the first one and I was like ‘This sauce is unreal’ its tasted tangy, salty and spicy which is right up my alley! the plate that came for one person could definitely do as a sharing platter for two with the amount of wings on it! The chips were pure homemade chips and also nice and crispy! I just cannot fault the wings in any way whatsoever! They were AMAZING to say the least! I will definitely go back there, and I will order the same thing lol! It all came to €13.50 too which was a good price considering the amount of food you get and the quality of the food! Thumbs up from me anyways guys and if you havent tried it then put it on your list 😉

Lots Of Love
