The TMI Tag

So I feel like it's time I let y'all know a little bit more about me, and I suppose the only way to do that is by doing a TMI tag! 
Now there's quite a few different TMI tags, so I've picked a few from everywhere, and away we gooo... 

  1. What are you wearing? Fluffy Christmas pyjamas, because I'm  at home at the moment!
  2. How tall are you? I am 5'11.
  3. Any tattoos? I don't have any tattoos no, but I do have quite a few ideas that I'd love to get done soon.
  4. Any piercings? I have 4 piercings, but they're all in my ears!
  5. Favourite show? I love Dance Moms, but, I also love CSI, Bones and Criminal Minds! Oooh and house design/ home decor shows!
  6. Favourite bands? You Me At Six are definitely one of my favourites... but I also love Paramore, 1D, All Time Low, Miley Cyrus, and many more...
  7. Something you miss? I miss all the people I haven't seen since I left school, and college! 
  8. Favourite song? At the moment, I'm loving 'Rather Be' by Clean Bandit feat. Jessie Glynn (Clicky click)
  9. How old are you? I am 19 
  10. Zodiac sign? Aquarius
  11. Favourite Quote? If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.”  - A. A. Milne, Winnie The Pooh.
  12.  Favourite colour? Right now, I am quite obsessed with the mint/aqua green colour.
  13. Loud music or soft? I used to listen to my music as loud as I possibly could, but since going to college, I've learned how truly bad it can be for you; so a little it softer please! 
  14. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? If I have all the time in the world to get ready, then I could easily spend an hour, if not two, getting ready for the day! But unfortunately, I like my bed way too much, and most of the time I only have 15/20 minutes!
  15. The reason I joined Youtube/Blogger?  I joined YouTube because I adored watching videos that had so much passion and love put into them, and it's something I've wanted to do ever since (I haven't yet... but I'll get there eventually!).                                                                                                                                                                                       I joined Blogger, again because I read many blogs which I found so interesting and passionate, and fell in love with the idea of being able to put my own little bits out there!  
  16. Meaning behind your YouTube/Blogger Name? My YouTube name is simply just my name, and my Blogger name (BeautyBehindLife), is all about exploring the beauty behind life, quite literal if I'm honest; but I wanted to incorporate the idea that I'd write both beauty and life posts! 
  17. The book you’re currently reading? I'm currently obsessed with a site called Wattpad, so I'm reading quite a few books on there. My current one is called 'Kiss Cam', and it's actually quite good.
  18. Place you want to visit? America, so so much of it. 
  19. Favourite flavour of sweet? I love mint humbugs (?) I think that's what they're called anyway!
  20. What instruments do you play? I actually don't play many instrument! I can play the ukulele, and dabble in the piano and guitar, but I'm not very good! I am a singer though, and I will admit that I'm not too bad.
So I hope y'all feel like you know a little bit more about me, and feel free to ask questions down below! Thank y'all for coming to read this post!

I Bought Everything! (Haul Post)

I've been on a few trips to Boots in Liffey Valley over the last week - just to look obviously! But, of course I couldn't resist the deals they had, and left with half the shop, as per usual!

Here's all the little bits I picked up; some of these are things I've been looking for for a while, and others were just spur of the moment decisions! 

So, 'Collection' had a 3 for 2 offer on in boots last week, so I could not resist!
I picked up the 'Lasting Perfection' Concealer, I've bought it befoe, and I really like it; I find it blends really well with my skintone! I use the shade 'Fair 1' - the lightest shade! Plus it's only €

I then picked up the 'Lasting Gel Nail Colour' in 'Stormy Grey 11' just to see how t would live up to the Barry M one. Now, it's not grey in any way, t's definitely a nude/brown shade, but it is beautiful.
You will need two coats of it, if you want it to really shine though - but it's definitely worth the €3.99

Finally, I grabbed their 'Work The Colour Eyebrow Kit'! It has thee different powders for filling in your brows, and a clear brow gel! Now, I've never used a bow gel before so I'm excited to see how this works, and the powders appear to be quite well pigmented, so I'm excited to try them!
All for only €

Boots had a 3 for 2 on all cosmetics deal going on, so I picked up these two beauties, as well as a brush which you'll see soon! 

The 'Stay Matte' powder, is a powder I had before, and loved, so I decided to go back to it! The only problem I have with this, is that it's not the best to carry around with you - the last one I had broke within a week! 

 Then I grabbed this beauty of a foundation I've been looking for since it came out; but for some reason, Boots have been sold out of the ivory colour forever! I'm excited for this, and hope that it lives up to the 25 hour promise they make! I will definitely get back to you with that! 

Next up is the Barry M section; now I don't generally buy stuff from Barry M,, but their new nail colours are out, and if you spend more than €9, you got a free mascara! What? Yes please!
I picked up their 'Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint' in '????' and I also grabbed a grey which seems to have disappeared already! They were only €5.99 each, and I hear that they're really good, so I'm looking forward to tying them out! 

And, because I spent more than €9, I got their 'Showgirl' mascara (worth €7.49) free! The wand looks surprisingly good, so I can't wait to try it once my current one runs out! 

And lastly, I took advantage of the No7 vouchers that Boots give out at the counter! 
I picked up the 'Rapid Spot Relief' from No7's 'Beautiful Skin' range; this is one of the first No7 products I've bought, so I decided to try something a little different to what I'd usually try! This is usually €11, but their voucher lets you take €6.50 off the original price, so it only cost me €4.50.

That's almost everything I've picked up lately, but I'll have more posts coming for you soon enough I'm sure! I just can't seem to resist buying everything in my sight!
Let me know if y'all have tried any of these, I'd love to know what y'all think!

Haul Of My Faves

Wait a second, what is this? Two clothes hauls in a row? Wow Emma, you must never leave the shops right? Oh, how I wish that was true! 

These first two, are some absolute beauties; yes, they are the same piece of clothing in two different colours, and I am one hundred and twenty-five percent okay with that! I've never really been one to go for really bright, out-there colours, so you can imagine the fear I felt buying the both of these! 
But, I have to say, that I am now a firm believer that colour can and will completely change your outfit! 

The first one's a yellow ombré shirt, and the second a purple ombré shirt; they're quite long, and reach about mid-thigh! I wear mine with a skater skirt, crop top and pumps!  I bought them in a little boutique in New Ross in Co. Wexford, called 'Town and Country', and they were on sale for €22.49 each... not too bad right?

These are some of my favourite items of clothing, it's not even that they're particularly breathtakingly beautiful; but I have a deep adoration for them and where they come from! 
I bought them online, from a youtubers merch website; for some reason I feel like these tops 100% get me! 

The two guys are 'Shep689' on YouTube, and they do daily vlogs as well as their own videos on their own channels! I met them this past summer (You can see that post here!), and they are some of the most genuine people I've ever met, and they design pretty beautiful clothing too! 

The t-shirt up there is $20, and the tank top is $25; they're both still available right now (but I'm not sure for how much longer)! The website is here!

Sooo, that's all for now folks, I hope y'all enjoyed this, and I'll be back super soon with another post for y'all!
