My Beauty Wishlist.

This is me giving you all flowers cause I'm sound.

I need to start off this post by apologising for being possibly the worst "blogger" ever. My last post was at the end of November. It is almost the end of January, and I feel awful about that. The only explanation I can give you all is that I was working full-time for the last few months and I simply didn't have the chance to post anything. My December was crazy busy, all I managed to do was work, eat and sleep (and take a few selfies) but I'm not complaining because I enjoyed every minute of it. I like my posts to be enjoyable to read rather than just posting any old shite, definitely "quality over quantity" so everytime I even went to write a blogpost idea, it just didn't sound right because I wasn't putting my all into it. Hats off to those who manage to write well written, informative posts every second day. I admire you. 

Yesterday I got a surprise email to inform me I had 100 followers on Bloglovin. Feck knows how I managed that, and feck knows why people are still reading my ramblings. I was honestly so shocked and happy and my view count is now well over 6,000. This gave me the little massive kick up the arse I desperately needed and now I can happily say, I am back. I'm going to dedicate parts of my week towards the blog and I'm going to make it something decent for all you legends that are actually reading it. I'm also going to try work on the design and layout of my website because lets be honest, it looks absolutely crap. It will take me some time to get my act together but it will happen, I promise.

Over the last month or so I have been dying to hit the shops and like a gobshite, spend all my wages in one day. I have been researching some bits and pieces that I really badly need want.

 So, here is my wishlist...

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. This little beauty has been popping up in my dreams I am that madly in love with it, or at least the idea of it. I have yet to try it out but the reviews and recommendations I'v seen have been amazing. To all those who have read my blog since the beginning you will know that I'm a bit mental about foundation and have tried almost every brand out there, (new foundation reviews are on the way) but I haven't found "The One". I have a feeling Nars could be it and I am SO excited to purchase it. I am a sad human being.

Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder. I blame the lovely ladies over at Viva Adonis for this. Its basically my dream powder and as soon as I read their fab post I knew I had to have it. I hadn't heard anything about it before so that just shows how well they rate it and I completely trust their opinion because they know their stuff! Check out their post here and then spend hours on end reading through all their previous posts and wishing you were them. I have no shame in admitting I did just that. 

Benefit Rockateur blush OR Nars Orgasm blush. I need to refrain from buying both. I'm currently using and loving Benefit Dandelion but I feel its a little bit too pale for me at the moment. Rockeatur is a stunning rose gold shade that looks amazing with their Hoola bronzer and Orgasm is a gorgeous pinky shade that just looks unreal in all the pictures I have seen on google. What are the chances I will come home with both? Very high.

Zoeva Complete Brush Set. Now, I don't actually need more brushes. I have a nice little collection already but these babies are just too beautiful to say no to. I have heard so many great reviews about this brand and can't wait to purchase this set and give it a whirl. I mentioned them in my recommended brush post over here if you want to have another little read and check out other amazing brushes. I am a tiny bit brush obsessed at the moment. I will have a review of my new Crown brushes up soon.

Prada Infusion D'iris Eau De Parfum. I think this is the one I was having a good sniff of the other day and decided that it would be my new go-to scent. It is stunning. I'm not really sure what else to say about it because I am awful at describing scents but when I do pick this up I will have a better bash at it. I'm popping this in the NEED category. 

So far, that is all I have been lusting after. Or all I think I could manage to afford, although I am afraid to add up the total amount. I mentioned earlier that I am a complete gobshite*, didn't I? I hope you all enjoyed that post and forgive me for not posting sooner. I know I mentioned above that I like my posts to be quality over quantity but after reading over it I don't think its either. Shite...

- Let me know the products you have been longing for because more than likely I will be adding them to my list too...

- Have you tried any of the above products? I would love some more opinions!

And finally...
 - Did you miss me? *insert the last scene with Moriarty from Sherlock Season 3 here*

*Gobshite - a term very common in ireland. Someone who talks absolute shite.
