How to Pack Smart for a Trip

How to Pack Smart for a Trip

Small (Bra/Undies)
Keep everything natural nude so it will work under all clothes, 
Even if you have a white top it's always best to wear a nude bra as it's less likely to be seen. 

           Multiway bras are always super handy to pack!


Pick a colour scheme and stick to it.

Pick items that all match so you can vary your outfit without over packing,

I stick to these rules:
Black                or           Brown
Red               or           Pink

I never pick a brown top if I pack black shoe, or a red top with a pink jacket

My colour scheme is usually 
and a pop of colour usually Pink or Red.
But hey that's just me!




Brow Pencil 
Brow Gel

Eyeshadow Palette
Eye Liner



Foundation Brush or Sponge
Blush Brush
Powder/Bronzer Brush 
(Don't want to mix a blush brush with a powder/bronzer as it can give your face a pink tint) 
Flat Eye-shadow 
Blending brush
Brow Brush
Eye lash Curler

Skin Care

Lip balm 

Hair Care

Leave in Conditioner/heat defence 
Hair Brush
Hair gel or spray or creme
(Depending on hair type)

I have podophobia


Not something I like to admit but....*whisper* I have horrible feet.

I have podophobia: A fear of feet!

I hate feet, even the word Feet or Foot turns my stomach, I think this is because ever since I can remember I have had dry horrid feet. 
I even remember going to the doctor about it as a kid!

I have tried everything to get smooth feet,
scrubs, lotions, potions, files everything!! 

(If you want a review on products that I have tired before, let me know)

So I had to review this because in my option this is AWESOME!
Best thing I have EVER tried hands down (or should I say feets up) 
I finally have smooth feet with very little effort at all!! 

Pop two AA batteries in 
(not included by the way)

Press the button so it starts to rotate....

Run it over the foot Never hold for more then 2 seconds in the same spot

You'll see the flakes fall away...
Do it over a bin or towel, its gross lol


It is pretty expensive at around €50 but I have spent more on stuff that hasn't worked so taking that into account it's not bad and at least it really works. 

I have been going around showing everyone my feet and with my podophobia that's HUGE for me!

All in all I love it!

I just don't know!!

Vichy Normaderm 
Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care

This is gonna be a very mixed review, 
I dunno where to start with it one....

I guess I will start with WHY I bought this. Vichy claim this moisturiser is for "imperfection-prone skin, to help with redness, shine, scarring and uneven texture." All issues I have. My skin is prone to breaking out but I have to be careful what I use on it, as it can become very dry if I use the typical "Acne" type products. 

This product includes Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid and LHA. This combination creates a peeling action penetrating the deep layers of the skin. "Treating from within"

So that's what it claims but what does it actually do...

  • It does seem to treat blemishes on the face, I feel a tingling feeling for a few second on the areas that I have blemishes and acne scars. 

  • It hasn't affected my dry skin patches. Keeping them comfortably moisturised.


  • Doesn't seem to sink into the skin, it sits on top of my skin making it feel greasy.  

  • I didn't notice my pores on my nose and cheeks were any smaller.

  • The packaging makes you think you have lots left, so its hard to judge when you need more.

  • Its expensive!!

  • Does NOT work as a makeup base! Unless you like it melting off in a few minutes!

I honestly cannot decide what to do about this! 
Should I get it again...What do you think??

Love, a very confused Sinead :/

Best Mascara Ever! NO MORE!

I love this MASCARA! 

If you follow my videos and my Friday favourites videos then you will know that I love Maybelline one by one "waterproof" mascara!

but for those of you who don't here is the reasons why this is...


Lets break it down into points!
  1. The wand grabs hold of each lash and as it combs through, each one gets a generous amount of product.
  2. It creates length and volume without the clumps!
  3. Its build-able and each layer brings you closer and closer to that fake lash effect! 
  4. The black shade is a true black, no grey here!
  5. Its waterproof!
  6. Once you apply it to curled lashes and lashes STAY curled all day! Prefect for that doll eyed look!

The down side! :(

Its becoming harder and harder to find which leads me to believe that it IS being discontinued after months of speculation!! 

However on a brighter note Maybelline have launch the new
Volum' Express The Rocket Mascara

With very similar claims and packaging...

here's hoping its just as good!! 
I am off to Boots to give one ago and I will post my thoughts on my blog soon!!

Much love Sinead xx

When 2012 started I was in a pretty good place in my life, lived with my lovely boyfriend John, had a great apartment in Cork city, great friends, happy family, everything I could have asked for.

I look at myself here and it makes me said,
I was so happy back then I want that feeling back.

I didn't think that the year was going to slowly go down hill. I tried to stay positive but I lost so much of that happiness. I still tried to hold on to as much as I could, even with everything changing around me and in 2012 I realised -
I hate anything changing, something I never really thought to much but too much has changed now and I do not like it! Not one bit!

So when everything fell apart in my life on the 20 of December 2012 I think I had finally had enough and had given up on holding on to the life I once had and instead of watching change, I was going to make changes instead, Its time to take back some control in my life!

So I made a list, which come to think of it, it's kind of like a New Year's resolutions list but I am not just doing this because it's a new year I have to do it now.

  • Take a break from youtube videos. This is more because I am still so upset about my dog passing away that I can't face filming, she was always with me when I did and even going into my filming room scares me. 
  • Learn to drive. Gonna be a surprise for some people to know that I don't drive, I hate driving and in the city it wasn't a big deal but now I need to learn to drive. I can drive but I hate it!
  • Get into shape. I am tired of feeling crappy about my shape and I want to get super fit!
  • Create better videos. I really hate how bad my videos are. Bugs me.
  • Look into getting laser eye surgery. I really hope I can get my eyes fixed, I don't like wearing my glasses. Especially when I'm driving. 
  • Spend time with Sarah. I don't get to see Sarah (makeupbysaz) much and I really miss her! I hope I get to see my other guru girlie soon too. 
  • Learn to find my way around London. London scares me, its not like the North (North of England) you can turn around and ask for help but in London if you hesitate you get push! Learnt that the hard way!
  • Do some thing fun every day! 

Do you have anything that you want to change, do you want to take control??? 
I would love to hear your thoughts! 

Best wishes! Sinead x
