June Favorites

I realise this is slightly late but oh well :P Here are my favorite things from the month of June :)

Ok so I know I only got these boots on the last day of June but I don't care, I LOVE THEM!
So there.

I love this stuff. Eyeliner has never been easier.

That's all.

I broke this the other day but still... I'm going to find a way to use it!

Yeah so this broke yesterday too... I'm not having great luck am I? :P Bitta glue should fix that though, right??

Happy July!

Helloooo! I felt like putting up a little outfit post as I'm still trying to fit blogging around my work. I'm working in a summer camp and have to live there 5 nights a week, without internet! So blogging is a little difficult at the moment. Anywho, here are my clothes for today :P

Top - Penneys
Shorts - H&M
Boots - Zigi
Hairband - Boots

Barbecue? I'm there.

 That title may have gone over the heads of some you, but oh well, you get the gist! I had a barbecue last week before I went off to start work, aaaaand... yeah! Just thought I would share some pictures with you :) (And yes, we do have palm trees in Ireland.. )

Haul! Penneys, Topshop, Asos and River Island

So... I made a youtube video (my channel is MissBeautyBandit). I feel a bit silly but hey, it's grand :P I just felt that a big (ish) haul is easier to do on video rather than taking pictures of each little thing! As well as that, you get the pleasure of hearing my weird mixed up accent (you can blame my childhood abroad for that one). Here it is for your enjoyment!

Summer Sales - A Love Hate relationship

Even Harry Potter gets excited about sales...
Sorry, saw it here and couldn't resist ;)
  I will be the first one to admit that I'm a sucker for a sale. When there are sales on, I don't even go near the full price clothes. But I probably spend more money because of it. Something along the lines of 'Oh, it's 7 euro down from 15, absolute bargain, I'll take 5 of them thanks.' Doesn't matter that they are 3 sizes too big and that I haven't tried them on either...

  As well as that, I buy things even when I'm not quite sure about them because they might not be there the next day in my size, and that would be a disaster. The result? An empty wallet and a sad Aoife.. Even though I am happy with my stuff obviously :P There are good and bad things about the big sales during the year, so, I thought, why not make a list? Everyone loves lists. Well, I do anyway.


Cheap clothes!
It's finally ok to buy those mad trousers because hey, they only cost a tenner.
Being able to buy that dress you've had your eye on for weeks but couldn't afford until now.

That's all I can think of.. wow, maybe sales aren't that brilliant after all :P

Now for the Cons:

MESS. Is it just me or is River Island the worst for this?
They have those shorts you wanted in every size except yours.
All shoes are a size 3. (Which is fine for people like my sister, but for me and my ol' size 5's, we just have to stick to what we have... sigh)
All sale stock just looks a bit... lame, compared to the new stock, even though you were drooling over it last week!
Huge queues at the fitting rooms and check out. (Or, as in a lot of River Island stores during big sales, the fitting rooms aren't even open) ... it's starting to sound like I hate RI in particular now isn't it..?
We are all overcome by the need to buy any bargain, no matter how ridiculous or ill fitting. 'It used to be 50 euro, now it's 20!!'  

Favorite sales: Penneys. Yes I know they are cheap already but they reduce things to one euro (!!)
Worst sales: River Island (purely for the mess, the discounts are grand though!)

... and the worst thing about sales? My empty wallet. Sob.
