Travel Blog โœˆ๏ธ: Dublin 2019 ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

That’s right this blog is still alive!!!

There has been many changes in my personal life which I will be doing a video on soon, so keep an eye out for that!

Right back to Dublin.. so it was my partners 30th birthday this year and I had plans to celebrate it BIG STYLE. So I planned to do a surprise birthday bash for him which ended up being fantastic and his family and friends were all involved! Turned out to be a great party and he had no idea!! ๐Ÿคฃ

But I also planned to do something really special for him as he does treat me like an actual princess. It was either going to be Barcelona or Dublin… and the decision became Dublin as Tom does drink Guinness now and again and I really wanted to go Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช haha!!

So I paid for the flights and Hotel, we flew from London Southend and stayed at this beautiful hotel called The Castle Hotel ๐Ÿจ.

I requested the hotel to do a little birthday surprise for Tom and they did!! ๐ŸŽ‰

We then went out to have a look around in Dublin! ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

We also went to a place called the Vaults which was like a London’s dungeons type of thing.

DAY TWO…. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ€ Today was Toms Birthday ๐ŸŽ‚!!

Today I booked for us to go the Guinness Storehouse and have a tour! ๐Ÿป When we arrived we bought a transport pass for 3 days which costs 22โ‚ฌ. I must say if you do visit Dublin it is really worth getting the pass especially if you are there for a few days!!!

Getting around Dublin is pretty easy, most of the time Tom used his phone to get us around and everywhere is really close to each other tbh.

Let’s have a look at the Guinness Storehouse shall we!! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ€

Obviously had to get a few bits from the Guinness storehouse, be rude not to… if you do go to Dublin definitely request going to the Guinness storehouse and we got vouchers to skip the line and also receive 2 Guinness glasses! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

We then had a little walk around and went to visit St Stephens Green… bumped into Molly Malone first! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘€

We then had to have a few drinks at a few bars in Dublin and do it the Irish way! ๐Ÿป

Would we have gone to Dublin if we didn’t visit the infamous Temple Bar… and then we went to The Auld Dubliner! ๐Ÿ€

Guinness Storehouse OOTD ๐Ÿป:

Boots: Primark

Leggings: Primark

Jumper Dress: Stacey Solomon X Primark

DAY THREE… ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ€

We woke up a bit ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿฅด in the morning but we didn’t want to waste the day, so we went to visit the Dublin Castle ๐Ÿฐ and Cathedral!

DUBLIN CASTLE & CATHEDRAL OOTD๐Ÿฐ:

Boots: Primark

Dress: Primark

Hat: Prettylittlething

Belt: River Island

Before we left we had to try an Irish coffee โ˜•๏ธ ๐Ÿ€

This trip to Dublin was fantastic and anyone thinking of going to Dublin… GOOOO!! (must make sure you have quite a few โ‚ฌโ‚ฌโ‚ฌโ‚ฌ Euros on you though, Dublin isn’t that cheap!! But it’s worth it ๐Ÿคฃ)

Thank you for reading, and will see you soon xoxo

Fenty Beauty Review ~ Part 2! โœจ

I have been excited to do this blog for quite a while now… haha just been a bit busy in between! ๐Ÿ˜… BUT WE ARE HERE… so let’s get into it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

This time I am reviewing Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle lipstick and the famous Stunna lip paint! โค๏ธ

In the Mattemoiselle lipstick collection, I got; Griselda, PMS, Freckle Fiesta, Clapback and Ma’Damn โœจAnd the Stunna lip paint in Uncensored! ๐Ÿ˜

In between lip searches I used Vaseline and Jeffree Star Cosemetics: Lip scrub!

These colours are normally what I go for in matte lipsticks as I like them with my skin tone, but Freckle Fiesta was a colour I wanted to try!

Griselda:

PMS:

Freckle Fiesta:

Clapback:

Ma’Damn:

Stunna lip paint:

I am aware I am behind with this review on these lipsticks, but i would say they are comfortable enough to wear all day. Haven’t done a test knowing they are long lasting but they feel light, and not drying!

The one thing I hated about matte lipsticks was the feeling of dryness, and so the Fenty Beauty: Glossbomb โœจwas a gift from heaven, and been using that since I stopped wearing matte lipsticks!

Fenty Beauty for me is a great make up collection, as in the photos I am wearing the Primer and Foundation (330)! โค๏ธ

Have you tried the Fenty Beauty make up range, and what’s your ride or die product? And if you disagree, what was the product that made you dislike the range?

Check out my first Fenty Beauty Review, if you haven’t yet? ๐Ÿ™‚ Fenty Beauty Review

And the camera ๐Ÿ“ท used for these photos is a Canon SX730 HS. ๐ŸŒŸ

The jumper in the photos is from H&M ๐Ÿ’ซ

Celebrating Love and Polka dots! โค๏ธโšซ๏ธโšช๏ธ

So this bank holiday consisted of Saturday and Sunday full of football! But was a great excuse to go Manchester again, and my first football match at Wembley!! IKR first football match and it was at Wembley! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜

Wore this comfy cute stripy trousers to Manchester and Wembley, and they are from Prettylittlething ! Love their clothes as they are very comfy and affordable! ๐Ÿ˜ black top from Primark, and white trainers from Primark! Such a cute outfit and very comfy! ๐ŸŒŸ

Wembley was great!! The atmosphere was amazing and went to see Rotherham win against Shrewsbury! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Joining in with the chanting “CMON YOU REDS” haha ๐Ÿ˜‚ But it was great seeing Toms family again.

Went back home and had some time to pack again for our anniversary Tuesday 29th May! โค๏ธ

Arrived in Derby and funny enough there was a pub near which we popped in, to get a G&T (of course), and Tom had a beer! Rhubarb and Ginger Gin is GORGGGGG๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ

Spent a few hours, swimming, lounging and enjoying the steam/ sauna rooms!

๐Ÿง–๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿง–๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Then we got ready for our meal out and for some celebratory bubbly! ๐Ÿฅ‚โค๏ธ

Dress is from LOTD I would definitely check them out, they have lots of offers, and the materials of the clothes are comfy!

This little Polka dot number, has to be my favourite item of clothing I have bought so far, and I still have some jumpsuits to try yet! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Very cute and girly, and I love how polka dots are coming back!

Started curling my hair with a wand and it is amazing! Love how the curls look, and people always say they like me with curls, so why not! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Tom and I have been together for 2 years now, and you can check out my 1 year anniversary blog on my website!

Living together I feel, makes you instantly know that person more as you are waking up every morning to them, and saying goodnight every night. For me that was a massive step in my life as I was so used to being on my own, and enjoying my own company, never thought I could say now that , when Tom isn’t there.. I notice! Now whether that’s because I miss him or it’s just deadly quiet, that can be up for discussion! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Future talks is happening with Tom and myself with getting a house and a dog, but we are both happy with how things are right now, what’s wrong with not rushing things and enjoying the moments we create together, rather than just ticking life goal moments off. Basically what I’m saying is I don’t want to hear anymore “ooh what’s next, kids marriage??” NAAAAHHH not anytime soon… jeez ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ!

Thank you for being with us on this journey, and we need to celebrate love more often! Don’t cha think???! ๐Ÿค”โค๏ธ

See yah soon xx
