I Hate:


As most of you probably don't know, Im leaving the country for 3 months. Tomorrow. AGH!
Im going to France as part of my college course to work for the summer. Im unbelievably nervous and getting quite hysterical at this stage!
I haven't mentioned it because I haven't really felt the need. Basically posting might be a bit irregular for a while, but I assure you im not gone indefinitely :) Everything is going so quickly.
Ive finished college for the year, assignments have been handed in, exams have been sat. Now I have to practically pack my entire room into a suitcase.
With all the birthday celebrations everything has just been a blur!
Ive gone on a few maaajor shopping sprees the last few days, partially for things for France but mostly to spend my birthday money on some well deserved treats :)
I have loaaaads of stuff to show you guys but I dont even know if ill have the time to make haul videos and stuff (if you follow me on youtube youll know what im talking about :) )

My boyfriend bought me a HD camera for my birthday so ill be bringing that with me and hopefully ill be able to make videos over in France. Theres a few on my laptop i havent uploaded yet so ill be uploading them soon enough :)

Im really going to miss the whole routine of posting on blogspot and on youtube over the next while because its something ive really come to enjoy doing. It seems I have no one to ramble on to about makeup and clothes so it really is like a sanctuary where I can talk about what I love to other people who love the same things!!

Ive met so many amazing people on my youtube/blogging journey so far, and corny as it sounds, it really has been overwhelming. I really hope I don't lose touch with any of you because you all seem like true friends to me.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who is following me and who has subscribed to me, it really is such an amazing feeling to know that somebody likes reading/watching what i have to babble on about! I have so many amazing ideas for videos and things now, and it saddens me that its pretty much coming to a halt. For the next few days or so at least!
Just until I get settled.

If anyone has a twitter be sure to add me on it
HERE because then ill be able to keep you upto date with whats happening :)

Talk soonies :)

Summery Outfit of the Day

Yay! The weather in Ireland has been scorching the last few days, so I treated myself
to a few new goodies and decided to dress summery today :)

Dress, belt and shoes all from Primark :)

Hope you all had a good weekend! :)

My god what a weekend! My 21st birthday party was Saturday night, and I am still sooo sleep deprived and hungover! It was a deadly night though :)

Here's a few pics from the night :D

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! :) x

River Island Wishlist

Usually I don't shop in River Island as I havent found many items worthy of purchase but the past few days Ive found myself going out of my way to go to River Island just to gaze at everything. Today I even went into TWO River Islands! Madness!

Their clothing has really turned my impressions of them around, and I am dying to get my hands on a few of their items. Heres a few :)

Ok maybe more than a few! :)
The blue sundress is top of my list. Ive pictured myself wearing it avec my new hair and in my head it seems very Katy Perry :P LOVE!

:D x

Face and Hair of the Day

So following through with my Vintage inspiration post last night,
I woke up feeling totally nostalgic and felt an urge to do myself up
prettyful today.

I guess the look is kiiiind of Katy Perry-esque. Maybe. I dunno!

I never do my hair like this either so it was quite refreshing in an out-of-your-comfort-zone kind of way. I was told many years ago by a hair stylist that I have quite a big forehead so would get away with a fringe, and this left me insecure and so I never really opted for hairstyles that were tote out of my face.. yano!?

Anyways, enough jabber!

I curled my hair into quite tight curls using tongs, then gently brushed them out. The picture doesnt really show how defined the curls are, but I assure you, they were really curly :)
My fringe was teased and pinned back, and again, it looks quite flat but it really wasnt! These pics arent doing my hair any justice at all!!
So I took some advice from my fellow bloggers and opted for a bright lip today :) Thanks guys!
I absolutely love it. I feel so fun and quirky :)
On my face im wearing:
Cliniques Repairwear Foundation in Vanilla
L'Oreal's True Match Powder in Golden Beige
Benefit Thrrob Powder
17 Eyeliner pencil in Black
No. 7 Intense Volume Mascara in Black
Maybelline lipstick in Hollywood Red
Sleek Pout Polish in Pink Cadillac

Checkoot my Youtube for a video of what im wearing in this pic :D

Hope youre all well! xx

Vintage Inspiration

I am overcome by a wave of inspiration and all I want to do is go back in
time and curl my hair 1940's style, rock red lipstick and wear polka dot dresses in pretty colours.
Why is it that styles of the past can influence styles of the future?
Why do we return to styles of the past?
I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era. If I was born decades ago would my style influence my personality? Or does personality influence style?

There is something so elegant and classy about the beauty that is vintage.

Vintage photos, vintage boudoirs, vintage shoes, vintage books, vintage jewellery, vintage sunglasses, vintage trinkets, vintage perfume bottles, vintage tailoring, vintage wallpaper, vintage cups and saucers, vintage buttons, vintage dolls, vintage cars - I love them all.

Something inside me fizzles and bubbles when I pass a vintage or second hand shop. The musky smell is offputting yet so enticing. Yet it is easily overlooked that what is now considered vintage was once brand new.

looove looove loooove i want your loooove.

New Hair and FOTD

Hello lovelies!
So I had a bit of a hair disaster last night. I decided to dye my hair a darker brown because the brown my hair was wasnt actually my natural colour and the roots were on full display. phew!

So I dyed it the 'Natural Dark Brown" from Nice & Easy.
I have tried many many brands of home dying hair colours and I quite like this one. Also because it was 2 for €11 in Boots but more on that later.

I was shocked to find that when I rinsed, it was BLACK. Dark dark black. I haven't had black hair since I was about 16, and im naturally reaaaaally pale, so I was not happy. Its actually Jet Black! OMG.

Anyways, I was a bit unhinged as I wanted everything to be perfect for my 21st which is this weekend :)

I woke up this morning and slapped on a bitta tan, and I instantly felt better.
The colour seems to look better with a tan than my pasty skin!
Note to self: Book Spray Tan tomorrow.

Anywho, here is what it looks like. Im not gonna try lighten it, I think I'll just work with it.

Agh! Im still undecided after seeing that pic, ha obv wearing black doesnt help.

Forced Smile:

I look very Carla from Coronation St. Hmmm.. Yes Aoife keep telling yourself that!

Clinique Repairwear Foundation in Beige
No 17 Face Powder
MAC Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach (thanks Cami!)
MAC eyeliner Teddy
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara

Have a good week lovelies! :) x

Aoife needs Help!

Hi guys! So heres the lowdown.

My 21st birthday is in 2 weeks time and Im having a totally fabulous party to celebrate :)
Problem is, I am having serious difficulties in trying to find a dress that will WOW.
I want it to be formal-ish, but not so formal that I look like im going to my debs/prom :P
I also want it to reflect me as a person and show my sophisticated side :) I don't just want any ol thing :)

I have looked in shops such as Topshop, River Island, Oasis, Awear, Warehouse, and Miss Selfridge with no luck! I just havent found anything I am tote happy with.

Are there any places that you guys know of that sell nice dresses?! Remember if its an online place I need to know quick as I only have two weeks for them to deliver!

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!!

:) x

Kissies! x

Virtual Makeover from Topshop

Hello my sweets!

So if youre an avid Topshop fan like myself you'll know that Topshop released their very own Makeup line yesterday. I was interested to hear reviews and such before I went to try out their products, because I really did not want to be wasting my moola on makeup that wasn't great yano?!


If youre a fan of Topshop on Facebook, you may have been updated that their website only moments ago launched a Virtual Makeover application. (Yes Im on the ball!)

It allows you to upload a picture of yourself and test out the makeup on your face to see what colours suit! Its quite ingenious really. So I had some fun with it and voila!

Here's a pic of my 'virtual makeover'. :)


And After:

haha :) Trés realistic!

If you want to try it out for yourself just clicky

Have a lovely friday! :)
