Too Faced Primed & Poreless Powder

Leave a Comment

Of course all purchases these days come from online influencers and if I remember correctly I bought this Too Faced primed and poreless powder after Claire 'Heyclaire' saying it was one of her all time favourite powders.

The packaging is really pretty however the lid on this broke at the hinge within a week of having it and the gold writing has chipped off.  However I do carry it in my handbag so I'm probably a bit careless with it.

I do find that it really does blur your pores and smooths the look of your skin.  I sometimes use it before and after foundation to give an extra smooth feel.  I wouldn't say this gives a matte feeling more like a satin finish so not sure how this would last if you have oily skin.

I've just bought the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch powder to see it compares to this.

Zara Tote bagI've been on the look out for a bag that can go on my shoulder, Zara always does the sleek classic look so this one stood out to me.

Wicker Christmas Tree skirt & Slogan Christmas Tree Skirt.  This is something I've always wanted, I'm not sure which type of tree skirt I prefer.


Elf Christmas Nutcracker. Every year I like to add to my Christmas decorations, while I still have a young child fun decorations stand out to me.

Santa Soap dispenser. How cute is this little soap dispenser, just to add a little Christmas fun to each room.

Kids Christmas plateOf course my little guy needs a Christmas themed plate to eat his dinner & snacks from!


Stag Christmas duvet coverThe one type of duvet that is missing from my collection (yes I have too many sets) is a Winter themed one.

Kids Christmas throwI can just imagine this lovely little throw layed over my son over the Christmas period, very adorable.

Printed top I always tend to gravitate towards animal print, I think it's something that will be around for a long time so this is a great basic item.

Soft grey coat.  I've been looking for a new coat as I recently put my over worn ones in a clothing bank, Zara do coats at great prices. 

High waist embrace jeans.  Jeans are something I wear pretty much every day, I like to wear them casual or paired with a nice top when going 'out out'.

Embroidered faux leather top. As said above^ I love going 'out out' wearing jeans and pairing them with a nice top, how amazing would this Zara faux leather top be!

Retro style t-shirt. I usually don't wear slogan tops but this top speaks to my style, never have an outfit.haha

Shirt with ruffle.  I'm always buying black blouses as you can never go wrong with a black top, I really like how the ruffle detailing is on the arms around the cut out sections.

Striped sequin top Christmas season is coming and of course everyone needs a sequin item in their wardrobe, not sure that I would buy the matching trousers though.


Toddler Christmas gifts

Imaginext castle.  My son loves opening/closing doors, hiding behind things and doing peek a boo so when we saw this it was perfect, it should keep him entertained.

Star wars Mr potato head. I found this potato head in Home Bargains for under £6, it was the last one on the shelf and I couldn't resist it.  He's played with one before and he loved it so can't wait to see his reaction.

Puzzle. My son currently has a couple of puzzles which he knows how to complete so I thought another little puzzle would be good to help with his fine motor development.

Play foodWell some people would class this as a product aimed towards girls and for some reason it's in pink packaging to try and reaffirm this theory, however my son loves pretend play and I think he will get hours of fun from this play food set.

Shopping basketOf course I had to get this, how cute will a toddler with a miniature shopping basket be!?!

Magnetic Doodle Board.  All children seem to love these type of drawing boards, this one was only £2.99 from Home Bargains, such a great deal.

Play-Doh. My son has recently started to sit for longer periods of time and he enjoys playing with play-doh, so this will be a great little stocking filler.

Smyths classic brush setMy son loves helping me tidy up so this will be perfect for him to 'help' me around the house.

Magformers.  At the minute my son tries to get every magnet off the fridge, especially my magnets that open my magnetic child safety units on my kitchen doors.  Hopefully he'll be more interested in these.

Figures. These were only £3.99 in Home Bargains and I thought they would be a great stocking filler.

Bing House.  Confession here, this Bing house was supposed to be for Christmas, but one rainy day I surprised him with it.  

I've just ordered a few flip and flap books to add to his Christmas gifts and I think this will be enough as he will also be getting presents from relatives.

Dunnes Stores haul

Leave a Comment

Dunnes Stores have recently updated some of their stores, they now feel like you're walking into a House of Fraser/Debenhams type shop.


Look how nicely they wrapped my items, I had a very pleasant shopping experience as the staff were very friendly at the till.

Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic Glass Fox decoration.  Foxes now have a place in my heart as when we brought our son home from the hospital he was wearing a little baby grow with a fox on it.  Now we have fox related items throughout the house and clothing for him.  How could I resist this beautiful vintage style fox which was only £4.  I think I'm going to have to go back and get more.  

Peony Rose fragranced diffuser.  I purchased two of these, one for a Christmas gift and the other one for my bathroom.  I just love how simple this looks, with a very delicate scent. 

3 wick winter spice candle. How could I resist this stunning candle, not only is it lovely to look at but it has a subtle spice smell which is lovely for this time of year.

Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic Rosie mug.  I have a slight obession with mugs... I am allowed to buy a few more though as recenlty a couple of my favourite mugs have chipped.  This design also blends in with other cups & mugs I own from the bloomingville brand. Oh how I wish I could buy their whole store of products! 

White heart design mug. I really enjoy how simple this design is, white with the little red heart.

Rosa Copper Task Floor Lamp I currently have a floor lamp in my living room that was given to me, I'm the type of person that until something is broken I will not replace it.  However I'm hoping that my 2nd hand floor lamp somehow breaks haha. I have a few copper/rose gold pieces in my living room so a lamp like this would fit in perfectly. 

Casetify watch strapFor my birthday back in June I treated myself to a Samsung smartwatch which I adore, it came with a cream leather strap however as I wear it every day it's already getting that worn look. I seen this watch strap from Casetify and hoping I can find one in stock online.

ASOS sterling silver fine wrap ring. I seem to go through phases of wearing jewellery, apart from my engagement/wedding ring I mainly wear costume pieces.  I would like to start wearing fine silver or gold rings which can be worn whilst washing this dishes etc and there's no fear of the green tint being left.

Dogeared Rose Gold Plated Karma Sparkle RingAs you can tell I like delicate jewellery, I also don't mind mixing metals so I would wear these two rings together. 

Illuminating travel mirror I received the recent Lakeland magazine in the post and found this great little product in it.  I've always wanted a travel mirror and one that lights up is even better.

Joseph Joseph nest containersAny kitchen obsessed people out there?... yip that's me! I love kitchen gadgets and especially good storage boxes to put open items in, they are especially good for organising your fridge.  The idea of these Joseph Joseph ones just make me happy, they are nest containers which means less clutter in my cupboards (Wohoo emoji).
