♥ This post is late this week because I forgot my charger in someones house. I had to go 4 days without my laptop. I know, first world problems, right? This meant that I didn't get my "What I Love about Autumn" post up on Friday like I had planned. This will go up on Wednesday instead, so keep and eye out.

♥ This week has been mostly chilled, I'm trying to lay low because this week is pretty hectic! I have Dublin on Wednesday, fly to Brighton on Thursday, my Graduation on Friday, fly to Dublin on Saturday, travel home on Sunday and then my friend from England is coming to visit the next Tuesday. Busy bee! 

♥ Moral is high for the coming weeks, and I think that it'll be really great. I need to schedule some blog post for that time though. Make sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see what I'm up to. :3

What have you guys been up to this week?

  • So I've been having a pretty rough week. Some crap stuff has happened as of last weekend and it's had me pretty down about everything. Plus I'm managed to become sick so that's always great.
  • I'm supposed to be graduating in October but due to a few things going wrong, I don't have anything booked such as flights and my gown. It looks like I may not be able to go at all. *Update on this, I am able to go now, which is good! And it's only 2 weekends away.
  • I got my navel pierced about a year ago and it never really fully healed, and just this week it starting rejecting so I had to take it out. It's the first time I've ever had to take one of my piercings out (bar my ears when I was younger, due to the idiotic choice to get them pierced in Claire's. I was 8, I didn't know!)
  • I haven't really been very active on any of my social stuff either, so it's just been an off week all round.
  • I'm feeling good about the upcoming week despite this crappy week. I'm gonna attempt to spider-proff my room using peppermint and some other things. I am not having those little buggers get in.

Sorry for the kinda downer post. I'm determined to be in a better mood this week!

Autumn Wish List

Evening, lovelies! (Or whatever time it may be, it's currently half 11 at night in Ireland so I don't really know why I'm saying 'evening' at all. But I digress.) So Autumn is just around the corner and everything is about to be well under way, from the fashion to the weather, everything is about to get a hell of a lot better. Well... In my opinion anyways. 

Some of you may know that Autumn is my favourite season. And if you didn't know, then now you do. I just love everything about it. I love the weather; how there's a crispy-ness in the air. I love the changing of the leaves and let's get real here for a minute... The sound and satisfaction you get from stepping on a crunchy leaf is just incomparable! I love the fact that halloween is approaching and everything gets more edgy. And of course, I love the fashion. Layers and dark colours galore! I am in my element. 

In fact, I could write an entire post on why I love Autumn. I might just add it to the list!

Speaking of fashion though. Before the season is well and truly in full-swing I thought I would do a wish list, picking some items that I am kinda* in love with and kinda* wanna spend all my money on cause they are just fabulous.

(*Note: Replace with "excessively", "incalcuably" or something to that effect.)

Grey Blazer // River Island £40
Black Hat // H&M €20
Blanket Wrap // New Look £19.99
Black Boots // Forever 21 £26
MAC Lipstick in Sin // House of Frazer £15.50
Button Up Lace Maxi Dress // Forever 21 $39.90
Longline Duster Coat // Forever 21 €63.45

Let me know what you guys are wanting this season, cause I seriously love everything about this season and would love to add more things to "I want this but probably shouldn't buy it" list.

  • Evidently I haven't really been up to much this week, I honestly don't know where the time has gone! I should have some outfit posts up this week, but don't quote me on that.
  • Watching - A LOT of youtube videos, True Romance (a new favourite), Yu-Gi-Oh!, Futurama.

Illamasqua & Sleek Haul

I picked up a few items I'd had a hankering for in the Illamasqua sale. Haven't tried any of them out yet as I was waiting to do this post but I am way too excited about this!

When I was in Dublin I also picked up one of the Sleek palettes. There isn't a Boots which stocks Sleek near me so I knew I had to go and get one while I was pottering around Dublin. I didn't have any idea which one to get. I wanted them all and knew they were all very critically acclaimed. I knew I had found my baby when I saw this one though. Ugh.. Those matte eyeshadows! *Drools*

I love matte eyeshadows but don't own enough. I own a lot of Urban Decay and BH Cosmetics, which are mostly chunky glitter and shimmer. I've tried this palette out a little and holy smokes.. It's good. Like, really really good. The pigmentation is craaaaazy! I only own one other product from Sleek (their Contour Kit in Light) and I use it quite literally every single day. They just do not disappoint. I can see my collection being taken over very very quickly.

  • This has been a hectic 2 weeks. I've barely been home as I've been in Dublin and working at Electric Picnic! Absolutely amazing time, best weekend of my life. Even managed to work with one of my all time favourite bands, The1975. Thankfully they are lovely gents and alongside their crew and tour manager were one of the nicest acts I've ever met.
  • Since I've been back I've mainly been catching up on sleep, catching up on youtube videos and all around chilling out.
  • Watching - Airplane, Hot Shots, Yu-gi-oh!, Year One, Kick Ass. 
  • I've been wanting to get back on the reading train, since I'm a bookworm at heart. I'm on Goodreads if you fancy adding me and any recommendations are welcomed.
  • Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been all over the place! But it's been really very good. Also thinking of moving relatively soon, hopefully to Dublin. But more on that at a later date.
Thanks for reading as always. I need more sleep. :L
