So I know it's been yonkers since i've posted but once I explain why you'll understand :D
So over the summer I've become a professional make up artist and have already started work at so much stuff such as: the Elite model search, Les Miserables, Photoshoots, special occasions etc, things have really kicked off for me it's been a blast :D
I've also set up my new blog...Sarah Hope Make-Up please follow and check it out, read yesterdays blog to find out how you can win my giveaway, if you live abroad there will be plenty more giveaways to come so keep your eyes peeled :D
Please support me and my new blog I want to share my new world and love with you lovely bloggers :D
I know neglect is a killer but i've been so so busy with my make up course I graduated 2 weeks ago and am starting a more extensive on this monday for special effects, film, tv etc.....so so exciting and then for the past two weeks and counting i've also been on an internship :D
I am one lucky girl to have all of these wonderful opportunities this summer :)
So to apologies for the Blog neglect I've put together a little haul and review....;)
First of all I finally bought an Epilator :) great results so far however I am currently sporting one hairy leg and one not so hairy leg....the pain is to much :( but worth it i spose!!! I'm also expanding my kit more for work so I bought some basics......
MAC Brule, MAC Kid and MAC Charoal brown.....Matt and basic and very popular :D love em...
I've so many more posts to put up i'm excited to show you guys what i've been getting up to :D
My rant ironically is about being more positive....I am by far one of the most positive people you can come across....or so ive heard....
You know that book that was written called "the Secret" ????
well I haven't read it now but i've heard its about life's secret to happiness....well thats easy BE POSITIVE.....whenever anyone is down I always say "Think positive to be positive" now theres my secret use it as much as you can.....If your doing a task and you think to yourself "hmmmm nah I can't do it" then your right you won't because people never want to prove themselves wrong.....they always have to be right but if you say "Yes I can do this" then you will......
If your in a situation and you use this method and things go pear shaped simply think "this wasn't meant to be something better will come my way" this gives you positivity+confidence=success :D
They say if you want something really bad like a holiday, car, jacket....whatever than stick a picture of what you want somewhere where you will see it everyday.......you will walk by this everyday and think....."I'm gonna' get this" and so you will even if its just a word relating to what you want like.....jimmy choo or spain or even dog....than you shall get it :D
Positivity is free.....
If something negative happens to you automatically turn it into a positive theres always polar opposites to every situation where theres negativity theres positivity and if theres positivity theres negativity.....but in that situation choose positive.....always CHOOSE POSITIVE
I hope this is all sinking in.....Don't ever waste your money on silly books or seminars.....simply....THINK POSITIVE TO BE POSITIVE
surround yourself with positive poeple....negative people aren't worth it they'll bring you down!!
I modelled for a L'oreal Hair show back in April......I sat down in the chair to get my hair done that morning before the show that night and they said they would be dying it a redish brown and cutting it to my shoulders......I just want to remind everyone that I gave the go ahead....I said it was okay :).......
But seriously what a freakin' change from fairly long brown hair to this.....I loved the show (it was to promote this seasons new trends and I recieved a lovely goodie bag in the end too I think its worth 200euro so I was soooo happy about that....) it took so much time to adjust to the new hair I absolutely loved it at first but soon the colour didn't suit anything like make up or even some clothes the colour washed me out....and everywhere I looked I saw long hair all I wanted was long hair again.....You'd think to yourself "why didn't you just dye it??" its not that easy I had to wait awhile because I didn't want to damage my hair and also red is the hardest colour to maintain and to get rid of......:(....soon it looked so faded I had about 2 other colours coming through thats 4 colours in my hair lol
But now I love my hair I'm even thinking of extensions :D I firstly had to dye in dark brown and now I have afew highlights going through it......I finally have my confidence back :)
I am so obsessed with Chanel and this photo in paticular....look at these glooves they are so cute I want them so much (a girl can only dream) anyways I don't even know if i'm allowed to put this picture up here as I got it from the website but I said what the hell. I was holding back for so long on showing you all this but.......
Can someone actually fill me in on which websites are a no go???where can we all take pics from I don't wanna get in trouble.....but I will rick it for fashion hehehehe wb peeps :D
Mark Jacobs and Mulberry are pulling off some gorgeous fringe bags this season along with some lovely vests and even trousers....personally I love love love the bags there my fave!! CELEBRITY:
Hilary Duff is among the celebrities who love these fringe bags this season but I often find Mischa Barton sporting a fringe bag or two all year around along with the Hills Stephanie Pratt!.....Take a look at Hillary's shoes 2 :) HIGHSTREET:
I love this pale suede Fringe bag as it steps away from the usual western brown leather bag....This can be found at River Island around 40euro (34.99 sterling)
My hair was in bits after the blonde so hesitantly I went back to my roots and dyed it dark....I also needed a change after 4 years of bright hair I decided to go over to the dark side......
It was amazing.....I didn't have to worry about roots and my hair had such a lovely shine too.....My natural hair colour is a tiny bit lighter than the pics above too but no one could tell if I left it to long to re colour....The dark had a red tinge off it because of the blonde underneath but everyone complimented that :D so I was happy.....
I've been colouring my hair ever since I was 16!!!I've always been so jealous of blondes so ofcourse thats the first colour I tried....The blonde was very dark at first but last year I modeled for the IHF(Irish hairdressing federation) and they really turned up the volume and dyed it blonde with loads of highlights!!!
I've always loved this colour on me however when u have naturally dark hair its hard to maintain and in the end my hair ended up looking like straw from to much peroxide so my hairdresser dyed it dark brown......

I went on the best trip of my life 2 years ago....It was an art trip to new york....AMAZING I love the city....this is one of my favourite picture of me and 3 of my friends in front of grand central station its just so priceless.....I also got introduces to MAC on this trip in Macey's I'll never forget that either :P
These little beauties will receive this award too :)
I think the best thing about having a blog is the help and tips you can get off others :)
which is what i'l be needing today :D
As you all may know I absolutely swear by Dior Blackout or BAD Gal Lash mascara (both waterproof ofcourse) However the one thing that pains me is the fact that there are no lash primers for the extra length.....I always find that when I use a good bit of eyeliner on my top lid it makes my eye lashes look smaller....they just don't stand out as much so i've been looking for length lately.....which is where you lovely beauties come in :)
I need suggetions.....First I was thinking some Rapidlash or Enormous lash but I think a primer will do, even a duo Primer and Mascara....let me know dolls :D
My first outfit of the day :D I know I already have a My Style Label but i've decided to re-jig that abit so it won't be as full length :)
We all got dressed up hence the dress ;)
I went, I saw, I conquered :P
My Mam, Myself and my two sisters went last night to go see Sex and the City 2 and can I just start by saying WOW!!!
We got tickets to the VIP which included some vino and popcorn and lovely leather recliner seats :D it was all Sex and the City themed too......There was a private bar serving drink and beverages (posh or what).....I must admit a lot of women got drunk (don't judge were Irish its what we do) one woman got up in the middle of the film and it seemed like she was looking for the toilet but she went through the fire escape and kept walking...well stumbling haha.....and they were rowdy too haha but they were a hoot all apart of the fun I say :D
The fashion was incredible!!!
There was only one dress I wasn't keen on (when she was leaving her old apart. for her date with Big.....That dress ugh!!!!......oh and did you see Samantha's YSL earrings??? AMAZING!!!! lol if anyone can sent me a link to a pick of them i'd love that i've been trying to get a hold of a pick all night with no success :(
I recommend all fashion fanatics to go see the film it was brilliant......
This is my first official Face Of The Day :D and I'm sooooo excited that I decided to do it on Benefit.....I need to feed my obsession once in awhile :) I really do hope you like it :)
I wanted to show some close ups of my eyes in particular, I always like them to be the main focus on my face....
This is every benefit product I used.....I've tried alot of their other products including their foundations but they weren't for me these are my fav few I had to leave out alot but i'll definatly do another Benefit FOTD :D if you can't make out the list of what I used in the pic please let me know and i'll repost a list :D......and yes how could I not resist my 3 new additions ;) from Glamour :P
The only thing used that isn't benefit was the Bare Minerals foundation and Bronser :D I swear by the stuff :)
Cameron Diaz wow's the cover of the July issue of Vogue and Golden girl she is in a lovely Sequined tweed jacket. It has to be said she works the summer look and as always her eyes and glowing face are the centre point of the cover. I love Cameron so much I think shes such a lovely idol for women everywhere. She gives a lovely interview inside too, pick up a copy and read all about her you won't be let down.
