Cuilcagh mountain…..

Hey girlies and guys,

Today me, my partner and some friends went for a lovely Sunday walk. We went for a walk up cuilcagh mountain which is located near the Marble Arch caves in County Fermanagh Northern Ireland.

I must say we really enjoyed the walk it was quite a long walk but was well worth it. I only got a few pictures as I was to busy enjoying the scenery instead of taking photos.

As it is such a long walk and some parts of is quite steep I would advise you to wear appropriate footwear. We wearied trainers as that was the only appropriate footwear that we own but I personally think hiking boots would be a better choice of footwear for this walk. 

I would also advise you to take plenty of water with you and maybe some food aswell.

I will tell you all abit about cuilcagh mountain and then I will share with you all the photos I managed to take while out enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery.

So let me tell you abit about cuilcagh mountain….
Cuilcagh is a mountain on the border of County Fermanagh and county Cavan. It has a height of 655 metres and is the highest point in both counties.

The mountain is mainly sandstone and shale, covered with bog and heather.

Cuilcagh Mountain has one of the largest expanses of blanket bog in Northern Ireland, on a relatively high elevation upland landscape, bounded by limestone grassland to the north and montane habitats to the south.

Primers I have tried……

Hey girlies and guys,

When i wearing makeup I always apply primer before I apply my foundation. So for  today’s post I will be sharing with you all primers that I have tried and love ❤️

Primer prepares your skin for the perfect foundation application by filling in fine lines and smoothing pores, and it also keeps your makeup looking fresh all day.  It is the key to making your skin makeup-ready. … Moisturize: Always apply moisturizer before priming, as it makes your primer application even

Primer #1: Primark Ps… Primer water 💦 


This is a great wee primer and is budget friendly. At such an affordable price it is great for anyone starting out with makeup especially if your just learning about primer and how to use it. It is definitely one I would repurchase.

Primer #2:  Rimmel London Lasting finish primer 

This is the first primer I used when I started using primer before applying my foundation. Unfortunately I don’t have a photo for this primer as I used it up a while ago and haven’t repurchased it as I have been trying out other primers. Rimmel products are also really affordable 

Primer #3: Rimmel London Exaggerate undercover shadow primer: 


This is another one of the primers that I first tried when I started using primer. This eyeshadow primer is a great base for your eyeshadow. Eyeshadow primer prevents your eyeshadow from creasing and helps it last longer I also find that eyeshadow primer is great for using under your concealer under your eyes as it prevents it from creasing. This is another really affordable primer 

Primer #4: Kat Von D lock it primer 


I absolutely love this primer and it is great when I pair it with my lock it foundation for an even makeup application 

Primer #5: Smashbox photo finish foundation primer 


The Smashbox primer is a transparent gel that smooths your skin and blurs any flaws. This primer is oil free which makes it perfect to use for any skin types and it has to be one of my favourite primers of all time. I will definitely be repurchasing this primer once I have used it.

Primer #6: Laura Geller Spackle under makeup primer 




The laura geller primer is also oil free which makes it suitable for any skin types. 

It  is made with natural plant extracts and the powerful anti-oxidants, white tea and centella asiatica extracts. These ingredients protect the skin along with aloe vera gel. Spackle also helps the skin retain moisture, feel softer and look smoother.

Thanks for reading hope you all enjoyed this post 

Comment below any recommendations you have for primers that you think I should try

Kat Von D lock it foundation…..

Hey girlies and guys,
A few months ago i went to Belfast and while I was in belfast I decided to go and have a wee look around Debenhams. Where I’m from we don’t have a Debenhams so there is a lot of makeup products that I can’t get in my hometown but I can get them in Debenhams so while I was in Debenhams I decided to purchase a few Kat Von D products and one of the products I purchased was the Kat Von D lock foundation in the shade 46 light cool 

I found that the girls at the Kat Von D counter were very helpful and I ask one of them could they colour match my foundation which she did so she said that the shade 46 would be the best shade for me to get.

So for today’s post I will be sharing with you all my thoughts and opinions on the Kat Von D lock it foundation 

I really like the packaging on the Kat Von D lock it foundation it’s simple but it’s also unique and I absolutely love the design of the KVD logo on the front of the bottle 

The lock it foundation comes in several shades so you are bound to find a shade that will match your skin tone. My shade is 46 light cool and this shade matches my skin tone perfectly as I’m really pale but have pink undertones. 

The Kat Von D lock foundation is a full coverage foundation that has a matte finish and it is also long lasting which is another great thing about this foundation. All you need is one pump of this foundation to cover your face. This foundation will even out discolouration and hide blemishes 

When I’m wearing makeup I like my foundation to be full coverage so this foundation is brilliant for me. This foundation is great for people with oily skin and even combination skin but it’s not great if you’ve very dry skin

Another thing i love about this foundation is that it doesn’t crease under my eyes like some foundations do 

Before I use this foundation I apply the lock it primer to my skin I find this primer great to use with this foundation 

This foundation  is my favourite foundation that I have tried and I would definitely recommend this product and I will be repurchasing this product 

I purchased my foundation from the Kat Von D makeup counter in Debenhams castle court Belfast but it can also be purchased from

Too Faced Better than Sex mascara….

Hey girlies and guys,

As you all know a few months ago I done a Kat Von D haul and as a part of that haul I got the Kat Von D x Too Faced better together palette as a part of that set I also got the Kat Von D tattoo liner and the Roo Faced better than sex mascara. 

So for today’s post I will be sharing with you all my thoughts and opinions on the Too Faced better than sex mascara 


So I’ve been using the Too Faced better than sex mascara ever since i got it and I absolutely love it 😍 its my favourite mascara ever. 

This product is easy to apply and is smudge proof and last all day 

I also find that this product is great for lengthening and adding volume to my lashes. I would say use more coats of this mascara if you want to add more length to you eyelashes I just used one coat and found it give enough length to my lashes on a daily basis but if I was going then I might apply another coat to give it a extra bit of length 


Below using one coat of the better than sex mascara and as you can see from this picture this product has a lot of pigment.

Another great thing about this product is that it is cruelty free 

I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family it’s an amazing product and I will definitely be repurchasing.
