Insurgent Preview 2015

Hello Beautiful People ❤

Happy Paddy’s Day, aka lets be typical Irish and drink too much 😉 It’s great to see that the celebrations are being carried out around the world. Amazing how our little Island can influence other, larger cities around the world, even if it is just for one day.

Yesterday my friend and I were invited to watch the Preview of Insurgent in Dublin. The Divergent sequel staring Shailene Woodley and Theo James was being shown as a ‘premiere’ for Irish bloggers and movie critics / fanatics.

The movie itself was actually really good. It is not usually my kind of film, but I have to say I was kept interested for the entire thing. My friend felt the same. We were made leave our phones outside with the PR firm hosting the event and I think this was great as it ment no distractions.

I really liked the fact that ‘Tris’ played by Shailene Woodley really looked the part. In a lot of cases the protangonist, particularly female ones, are centred around looking sexy. Now while she still looked amazing, the hair was cut short, there wasn’t loads of makeup and not a crop top in site. It was more about the acting than the sex appeal which doesn’t often happen anymore. I was pleasantly surprised.

Excuse the awkward smile, my face still looks puffy with the invisalign! I really do love the necklace from Newlook, it’s perfect now for Spring and Summer ❤

It was a lovely evening spent with my best friend. The screening was organised extremely well and the location was perfect. I would actually highly recommend seeing the film, particularly if you’ve seen Divergent.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone ❤

Until Next Time My Loves

Spring Feels

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend, it really goes too fast doesn’t it? Today I had an extremely girlie day and attended the Irish Beauty Show. It was great, hectic, but great. I spent far too much money but there were some great bargains to be found so I was one happy bunny leaving.

I went for neutral colours to try and get in the mood for Spring. I love the colour of my new bag as I usually stick with darker tones. It’s always nice to have something brighter to try and get out of the Winter mindset.

I kept my makeup quite neutral too. I used light browns for my eyes and nude / pink-ish lips. This combined with curls made me feel quite uncharacteristically girlie ❤
IMG_1350I will be doing a post about the event tomorrow as I am heading back out tonight. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday guys!

Until Next Time My Loves
