Hey everyone! It’s Mew here with another little travel post for you guys!

Ever since the summer began, I’ve been aching to get away to the sun. Last year I spent some time both in Italy and in France and it was just heaven. As much as I love my home, I’m always really grateful to get away from Ireland this time of year. Summers here can be warm, but most days are grey and overcast so it’s always invigorating to hop on a plane and travel somewhere warm and sunny, even if it is just for a little while.

Today’s post is all about my latest trip to Donegal, which is a really beautiful county in the North West of Ireland.

Kylie Cosmetics + First Impressions

New Video!
tumblr_osvx0fddCP1raoljxo1_1280

Hey guys! It’s Mew! Welcome back to another beauty post here on our blog.

In this week’s video I wanted to try out some Kylie Jenner Lip Kits as well as the In Love With The Koko set of liquid lipsticks. I had never given these hyped lippies a try ever before in my life and I thought what better way to do it than on camera! If you wanna see my reaction to them and know what they’re like, you can check the video out on our channel here.

While you can watch my overall impression of them and see how they apply in the video, I also thought I would give you a little sneak-peak here and share some of my thoughts on them with you!

The first thing I had to try was obviously one of the infamous lip kits. The one I opted for was the ‘Strawberries and Cream‘ shade which is a velvet matte lipstick. Honestly I was so shocked with how my lips looked with this even after applying just the lipliner. It was as if I had injections, they just looked so much more bloated!

Both the lip liner and they lipstick apply really smoothly and evenly and the lipstick is just so thick and creamy, making it a dream to apply. The pigment is extremely strong and it lasts for a good few hours throughout the day, even after eating and drinking! This lip kit is definitely one of my best purchases of the year because the quality is just so amazing. I can’t stress it enough.

The next thing I got from Kylie Cosmetics is the In Love with the Koko set which contains four liquid lipsticks. My favourite of them is the shade Doll which is this beautiful coral/red colour. The set also contains a gloss (Sugar Plum) which has a very pretty, glowy hue as well as two other lipsticks, Bunny which is a darker more mauve shade and Baby Girl which is also quite a coral shade with a pinker undertone to it.

The quality of this set is just as good as that of the lip kit. The only exception being that the lipsticks don’t come with lipliners to accompany them. Honestly though that really doesn’t bother me at all because I think they look just as good by themselves. The colours are just so rich and vivid. I love how they look!

Overall I am just so in love with these products. I wasn’t really expecting them to be worth much of the praise that they receive at all but after trying them out I have been in love with them ever since!

So that’s all from me for now. Don’t forget to check out the video here! Thank you guys so much for reading and for watching and I’ll see you very soon in my next post!

Hello everyone! It’s Mew! And welcome to yet another summery outfit post here on our blog. I really hope that you are enjoying the summer break so far and that the weather has been nice to you wherever you may be. Right now in Dublin it’s quite hot but overcast as always, so I’ve found myself embracing some darker styles lately. And one of my absolute favourite pieces to work my outfits around at the moment is this beautiful mesh dress that I picked up in Om Diva Boutique a short while ago.

Enjoying the Sun

Hey guys! It’s Mew! And welcome back to another outfit post here on our blog. I realise it’s been a while since I last made a post focusing on just one sole outfit so today I thought I’d do just that. I also felt like updating you a little bit on what I have been doing this past week (before the stormy weather came the other day of course.)

How to Wear Your Playsuit this Summer

Two Looks that I Have Been Loving

PicMonkey Image

Hello everyone! It’s Mew! Today I’m really excited to be coming to you with another outfit post,

It’s really only recently that I have begun my obsession over playsuits and honestly, I can think of no better staple piece to have in your wardrobe this summer. They’re just so comfortable to wear and always stylish no matter what the occasion may be. You can expose your bare legs in them without having to worry about any unfavourable gusts of wind heading your way and best of all, you’re always guaranteed to look extremely well put together with minimal effort involved.

For ages now I’ve been looking for a playsuit just like the one I styled in this shoot, so when the lovely team at Éimí Boutique asked me if I wanted to share this outfit in a blogpost with you guys, I just couldn’t contain my excitement! Today I’m going to be showing you two casual looks that I have been loving lately and hopefully that will inspire you with some different ways you can wear your playsuit this season.

Are you ready? Let’s start!

Look One ~ Summer Sunshine

When it comes to choosing an outfit on those scorcher summer days, a classic romper worn by itself is always a good go-to.  Elegant prints like these really let the outfit speak for itself so you needn’t worry about dressing the look up with accessories. Instead, a large handbag and some tan wedges or sandals will work really well together at nailing a relaxed and casual summer style, while some large, oversized sunnies will really compliment the vibe. For the chillier evenings or the days when it’s a little breezy but still quite hot, you can throw on a simple jacket boyfriend cardigan and you’re good to go.

Right now this is definitely my favourite outfit to wear on a sunny day. The look is just so cute, girly and casual. This playsuit is just so breathable and comfortable too.

(It even has pockets!)

Look Two ~ Darker Days

Of course I had to incorporate a more layered look to accommodate the cold weather of our ever-erratic climate so a mesh body and some semi-sheer black tights were a must. This look is perfect for the cooler days during the summer months and for the chillier evenings especially.

I love how the mesh in this outfit adds so much more attitude to the look. Here I wanted to go with an aesthetic that was a little more on the rock n’ roll side of things and I feel like the pairing of the ankle boots with they cat-eye sunnies really helps add to that style. As for the floppy hat… well, there’s just something about floppy hats and playsuits that always looks really flattering!

So these were just two of the ways I have been loving wearing my playsuit this season. Hopefully it gave you guys some styling inspiration!

Don’t forget to check out eimi-boutique.co.uk for some seriously beautiful summer pieces, including the playsuit I’m wearing!

Thank you guys so much for reading. That’s all from me for now and I’ll see you very soon in my next post!

Hey guys! It’s Mew here and welcome back to another beauty post here on our blog.

Recently I revamped my morning and night routine with some amazing Korean  beauty products and today I felt like sharing my current skincare regime with you.

It’s really only over the course of the past year or so that I have discovered the holy grail that is Korean skincare and there can be no doubt that Korean girls have got their skincare down. You barely even need to take one glance at them to notice how flawless their skin is.

At the moment I couldn’t be more obsessed with stocking up and trying out new skincare supplies that are going to take my pampering regime to the next level and while I have been testing and trying a tonne of products lately, these are the ones that have properly made it into my daily routine.
