Entertaining in Abu Dhabi..

I’ve had my sister over in Abu Dhabi for a few days (my first visitor!!) so I finally have some nice pictures of Abu Dhabi and thought it was only right to do a blog post to accompany them!

Abu Dhabi is a world away from Ireland in every aspect! It has definitely taken some getting used to, but I really enjoy it here! As I’ve said about Dublin, sometimes it takes having to show someone around the place you’re from/living for you to realise all there is to do – entertaining is allot of pressure!

The Perfect Red Lip

After having to wear a 'Ferrari red' lip almost every day for the past 9 months I thought I would share some tips I've learned to make it extremely long lasting, and my favourite products to give you the perfect pout!

First up is Lip Prep - No lippy will go on perfectly without taking some time and effort to prepare your lips first.

Places I've Been..

I thought it might be a nice idea to share some photos etc from my travels over the last few months, because most of my pictures are only shared on my private Facebook page!

Apologies about the length of this post! After this one I will try to do one a month about my layovers from that month - if anyone is interested in it?! 

As I've mentioned, I have struck gold with my new job as Cabin Crew / Air Hostess based in the UAE & travelling all around the world! 

So, here's some of the places I've been and some of the amazing experiences I've had so far..

Chengdu, China :

Hello Again!!

Hello again! It's been quite a while, eh?

Apologies for my complete lack of posting this year, but as I mentioned before this year saw me move across the world to start a whole new adventure in the Middle East!
I had promised myself I would keep the blog going and update regularly throughout my travels but, obviously, that has not happened - until now!!

Brazilia Waxing [Review]*

As Part of my prep for the 'big move' I popped over to Brazilia on South William Street for some waxing!

I had never been to Brazilia before, however had heard great things - mainly about the professionalism and their use of Lycon Wax.

The salon itself is lovely - very clean and comfortable. I went in to the room to prepare myself and noticed there was a TV up on the wall - great distraction!

I've Been Kinda Quiet This Week..

Hey guys!

I realise I've been very quiet this week! As I've mentioned before I'm moving away at the end of the month (so soon!!!) so I've been trying to prepare myself recently, as well as a lot of sitting about in my pyjamas ;)

Packing is going alright, I have most of my clothes packed away but its the extras (shoes, bags, makeup etc etc) that are stressing me out!
Thankfully I will have 60kg baggage allowance so I shall be taking full advantage of it :) The extra weight will definitely be needed, as although Abu Dhabi will but hot hot hot all year around (yay!), I will also, hopefully, be travelling to different countries and climates with layovers - so I gotta prepare!

Beauty Tip Of The Week [10]

Haven't done one of these in a while!

Never 'pump' your mascara wand in & out of the tube to apply product, it will dry it out very quickly.
Instead, scrape your wand around the sides of the tube - most of the product will be there anyways so it will get you the most out of your mascara :)

Penneys/Primark Haul!

As I mentioned in my New Year, New Adventure post I am moving to Abu Dhabi in a couple of weeks, so obviously that means I had to go shopping!

Naturally, my first (and hopefully only) stop was Penneys (Primark to you English folk), to pick up a skirt for training. However things didn't exactly go to plan as I ended up buying a few more bits!
Oh well :)

Heres what I got :

My First AllSaints Purchase!!

Anyone who has read my 'Christmas Wishlist' post (here) will know that I love AllSaints but, sadly, I have not owned any of their clothes - until now!!

While lusting over some of their leather jackets on the website I noticed they had a sale on - happy days! Unfortunately I was still very limited on what I could afford (I swear their stuff must be laced with gold for the amount they charge!), but I did manage to order two beautiful t-shirts..

Baby B. Browne Tan [Review]

It has been a long time since I've used fake tan on a regular basis, for so many reasons! Firstly, I'm lazy, plus I don't like the smell or how they usually wear off all patchy! So when I got my hands on a bottle of Baby B. Browne Tanning Lotion I was skeptical to say the least - but, it was New Years and I didn't want to be a milk bottle going out so I gave it a whirl!
