Lately I've Been... #2


Hey everyone,

Back in January I started a new series called 'Lately I've Been', and somehow I managed to forget about it.. no better time to kick start it again then Summer! When this post goes live I'll be in sunny Lisbon- I can't wait to get away from this shoddy Irish weather! This is the first time I've been abroad twice in one month, it really doesn't feel like I was only in France 2 weeks ago. I've said it before but I'll say it again- travel is a wonderful thing! Anyway, that's enough rambling for today, on to today's post!

Lately I've Been...
•Watching: Orange Is The New Black. Yep, I finally jumped on the bandwagon about a month ago, and I'm loving it! I'm still on season 2 but it's just so funny and easy to watch. I usually don't watch shows like this but surprisingly enough, it's become of my favourite TV shows.

Listening To: Halsey. After hearing some of my friends rave about an American singer called Halsey, I was intrigued. I found her 'Room 93' EP on Spotify and it's all I've been listening to lately! I'm so excited for her album, which comes out in August. Not only are her lyrics amazing, but she's also stunning too. Give her a listen if you like Sky Ferreira or Marina & The Diamonds.

Painting My Nails With: Sosu by Suzanne Jackson nail polish. One of Ireland's most popular bloggers ( of the blog So Sue Me) recently released her own nail polish range. It was actually my mam that bought our first two bottles, as she loves any 'gel finish' polishes! Since then we've picked up 3 more, and I have to say, they're actually really good. They don't chip for days and the colours are so gorgeous! 

•Wearing: 'Brave' lipstick by MAC. I recently won a MAC lipstick of my choice on Twitter, and this is the shade I went for! I'm usually a bright lipstick kinda person, but I do like a good nude lipstick every now and then. This one is the perfect every day shade- pink but not too rosy!

•Loving: My new Lauryn Rose Jewellery* necklace. I received this in the post recently, and I adore it! The rose gold chain, the black jewel.. it's very me. I can't wait to style it!

What have you been up to lately?

  1. I've been jumping on the OITNB bandwagon too! My flat mate loves it so I really just can't avoid it. I feel so late to the party.


  2. I must try Brave, everyone raves about it!
