Good afternoon everyone I hope you are enjoying Monday even if it is the start to the week! Todays post is just a review of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water which I finally picked up for myself the other day. I heard about this product a couple of months ago from a few friends and have seen a few good reviews of it since then. I purchased mine from Boots Chemists but I know they are also available in any other big chemists and also Primark/Pennys. So I hope you enjoy my little review!
This product has been described to me as amazing, the best, a must have, unreal etc etc and after using it now myself I can honestly say I have to agree! It is actually so easy to use and removes your make up in one go! Its hypoallergenic which means that it isn’t harmful to sensitive skin and doesn’t leave your face feeling odd. I have slightly dry skin myself and a lot of cleaners require rinsing and washing your face after use and then your skin feels a bit tight and you have to moisturise but not with this. It doesn’t dry out your skin or leave it damp. Its described as cleansing water but its not messy at all! You literally need a few drops on a cotton wool pad and you can remove all your make up in one go. It can be used on your face, eyes and lips too. It says on the bottle that it can be used up to two hundred times which means no buying make up remover for a while. Its a four hundred millilitre bottle so it will last a good while and instead of wipes and caps and all the usual fuss of cleansing bottles this one is actually simple. Its just an easy flip up lid and there you go. If you haven’t tried this product yet I think you definitely should because its really good value and does exactly what it says on the label!
I hope you all enjoyed my little review and if you have any comments or questions feel free to ask me!

Hey everybody! After a few weeks without internet yet again I am back to give you all a little inspiration for Christmas coming up! Starting off my return to online life is my Christmas Wish List / Birthday list! My birthday is in seventeen days so this sort of counts as my list for that too. Here are my main fashion pieces from various different stores that I have had my eye on for a couple of weeks that I am hoping Santa will be kind enough to bring me!
First up is my list of shoes which no matter how many pairs I have I still don’t have the right ones! So kicking it off (Sorry!) is my first pair is a pair which I have included in a good few polyvore outfit posts during the summer by Missguided.eu called Clara Black Strappy Heeled Sandals and I just love them so much. I basically fell in love with them the first time I saw them online! They are so simple and elegant which I love about outfit pieces because I love things that can be dressed up or down.
Secondly I have a pair from Boohoo.com called Tammy Snake Two Part Heels in White but I couldn’t find a picture of them because I think they are out of stock! So I will move onto my two pairs of Boots both from Newlook.com and I know what your thinking why is she asking for Newlook things when she works there but the thing is we don’t get everything that is online and also we don’t get a lot of size 3 shoes in so I miss out sometimes! The first pair are called Black Studded Panel Chunky Shoe Boot and they are so cool. They’re different to just an ordinary black boot and I like the studs in it because they add a bit of grunge to a look or they just add some interesting detail to a simple everyday look. The thing about boots like these two pairs are because the heel is a block anyone can wear them. There are some people who try and wear really high stiletto heels and they’re wobbling all over the place so stick to what is practical!
The second pair of boots is a plain black pair because I don’t have an everyday pair of heeled boots except for my brown chelsea boots and because they are brown they don’t go with everything so I have bee trying to find a pair of simple black boots for ages! These Black Chunky Sole Pointed Shoe Boots are perfect! They have a heel but not a skinny one, they’re black so they go with everything and they are just what I was looking for!
Next up we have coats. Coats are a good gift for christmas because (especially here in Ireland) Winter lasts a long time and until about mid March it is a bit nippy out! So I searched my favourite stores and found three coats that I am just in love with. The first one is from Boohoo.com and is called Emila Notch Neck Wool Look Coat and I like the fact that its simple and can be used during Spring as well when the wardrobe colours start to get a bit lighter and it adds some colour in winter too.
The second is from missselfridge.com and I think it is so cute and perfect for dressing up. Its called a Petites Cream Pea Coat and its my favourite coat. I think it has a sixties feel to it and I can just picture all they ways I could wear it. I absolutely adore it and it is one of my favourite pieces from my list! I love how simple and chic it is but at the same time is really versatile.
The last of my coat selection is a piece by Michelle Keegan for Lipsy.co.uk and I love her collection. She has such a chic, elegant style and it is just the prettiest collection for dressed up pieces. If you haven’t seen her pieces yet do have a look because they are gorgeous! I had a post about it a while ago so you can see my favourites from her collection on here too. This coat is called Michelle Keegan Faux Fur Trim and its really nice. Its got everything its, warm, its a colour instead of plain black, its got faux fur and its good for Winter. It can be put ontop of any outfit wether your dressed up or down without the hassle of trying to match a colour. Here is the lady herself modelling it!
Finally my last section of my list is dresses and playsuits. There are only one of each and I absolutely need them both. They are such beautiful designs and I just fell in love with them at first sight. The first one is a Satin Bandeau Playsuit from Miss Selfridge and it is just the most elegant playsuit I have ever seen. (I am banking on this being given to me for my birthday so I can wear it for the celebrations!) Its just so pretty and I have never owned a playsuit before so I feel this is a good one to start with!
The dress I have added to my list is another piece from Lipsy.co.uk’s Michelle Keegan collection and its her Bandeau Midi Dress and I love it. It reminds me of something the Kardashian’s had in their Lipsy Kollection a while ago. I love how elegant and chic it is (Obviously Michelle pulls it off better than I ever could!) I think it is perfect for a really dressy event and it will be a favourite wardrobe piece for years and years! The fact that its white with black in it goes so well and they really compliment each other. It is red carpet worthy in my book so I have to have it!
So that is the highlights of my Christmas Wish List this year and my also my Birthday list! I hope you all liked this post and again I am sorry to have been away from you all for so long due to my internet issues I hope you all had a good few weeks while I was gone! I hope you are all finding some Christmas inspiration and if you have any questions about my post or any comments let me know I love hearing from you all!

Hello everybody I am sorry about this happening again but for the second time since October I am without internet or wifi in my house until the 19th! This happened last month as well and I wasnt back with you all until the 19th of October and due to someone in my house being careless with their usage its gone again! So until the 19th there will very little posts and there will be no Polyvore outfits because its not the same to create them on my phone! So I hope you will all forgive me for this annoying disruption in posts and I will see you all on the 19th!
Remember to see my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on my day to day life. You can find the links in my Contacts page!

Hello again everybody I am spoiling you today with two posts one after the other but I have another post to share with you all which I promised would be done today!
The other day I was checking my emails and I discovered I had one from the people at http://www.farfetch.com asking if I wanted to blog about their new Infographic they have so of course I said yes! http://www.farfetch.com is an online store featuring over three hundred unique and independent boutiques to help fashion loving people like you and me find amazing looks from boutiques all over the world. They have stores all over the world but are all connected through the website. This new infographic they have created is all about the time and work it takes to run a blog. This is actually such a good way of letting readers like yourselves know what its like to run a blog and they way they have made the inforgraphic is so good. Its a really good visionary piece and hope you all enjoy it! I will tell you about my personal blogging style first.
I like to prepare my longer blog posts in a special book I have for posts so that I know what to include and what to talk about mainly and how to highlight my main points of the post. I also make a note of each photo and attachment I am planning on using so I don’t spend hours trying to find the item. I also prepare a bit of what my dialogue will be like so its not boring or too plain. I like to write it so that its like I am saying it to you guys like with a little joke or something just so that its a bit different. I like to post as regularly as possible during the week. So if I don’t have anything to talk about from the last few days I will just use a Polyvore post which I find really helpful because then I am still helping you all find a look and not just going days with no posts! When it comes to staying connected with other bloggers I also share my posts to my personal and like Facebook pages as well as my other Evanna Lily pages! I am part of twelve groups on Facebook which I always share the links to for other bloggers to read and share around! I also have a contacts page on here with my links and email address for you to ask me questions and get in touch with me about anything which a few of you have done this week and I love that you have!
So that is basically my blogging style summed up and I hope you all found it interesting and useful. Here is the Inforgraphic by Farfetch.com for you to all read and learn a bit about blogging from. I found it really interesting and am happy to share it with you guys and I am so thankful to Farfetch.com for sending it to me!
So I hope you all enjoyed this post and the Infographic that I shared created by Farfetch.com and feel free to ask me any questions about the blog and make sure you take a look at Farfetch.com for some unique looks and designs by many different boutiques!
