30 Day Snap FAIL

Heya Guys, 
Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted in a while but I should be posting everyday because I started the 30 Day Snap by Sprinkle of Glitter. So I guess I just want to let you know that I am a complete fail! 
I liked posting everyday... it was fun and definitely helped me get 'back into' blogging. But posting everyday about my day? Yeah that was hard. I don't do exciting things often (as you can tell!) and I hate writing blog posts if I don't think they're any good. 
Anyway I want to thank you if you actually read my daily posts :) 
I'll still be doing lifestyle posts but I feel like I haven't talked about beauty in forever.
I hope all of you are enjoying your Summer so far, I get incredibly lazy so I'm trying to be productive!

love you lots Niamh

On a side note - 
Thank you so much for 100 followers, I'm over ze moon and ze stars :)

30 Day Snap #13 | Netflix & Art

Heya Guys, 
Since my tests are finished I decided to try the Netflix free trial. I love films and TV shows and I'm always watching something so it's perfect! I watched The Last Song and H20:Just Add Water today. I know H20:Just Add Water is a show for like eleven year olds but I never finished the series and I really want to! I also stopped watching Gossip Girl around Season 3 a few years ago so I'm gonna start watching it again. 

While watching Netflix I tried to do some Art. I seriously need to spend some time over Summer drawing cause I've kind of fell behind. We also got a Chinese takeaway for dinner which was yummy but now I really need a drink of water! 

love you lots Niamh

30 Day Snap #12 | Summer Soon

Heya Guys, 
I'm vair vair happy right now... 
My tests are done! 
So I got out of school early, as soon as my last exam was collected, and went downtown with my friend. I bought a MUA blush, Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream and Maybelline Gel Eyeliner from Superdrug.
I lurve buying new make-up. I could easily spend hours looking around Boots or Debenhams. There was an offer on for Maybelline - 'buy one get the second half price' which was pretty tempting. 
A free gift also came with Glamour but I just bought the first one I saw and ended up with a lip liner. Initially I was disappointed when I realised I had chose it cause I never wear lip liner... but then I realised I don't own one so hey maybe it''s better than another mascara! 
Lastly I bought food. Lots and lots of food. I also got a Subway for lunch which was delicious. Although I'm super boring with my sandwiches - I always get plain chicken and cheese.

Anyway I'm pretty happy right now. In my opinion there is nothing better than lying up in your jimjams watching TV, flicking through a new magazine and eating food. 

lots of love Niamh

30 Day Snap #11 | Company Magazine

Heya Guys,
I swear this 'photo-a-day' thing gets less interesting as the month goes on but I really enjoy blogging everyday. It's helping me get back into the swing of things, I just apologise for my boring life! Today I had a P.E test in the morning (it went fine) and I left school at lunchtime because I had no other exams. So my mum, little brother and I went to get something to eat (which was delicious, may I add) and then my mum decided to go grocery shopping. 
I know, so interesting. 

Anyway I bought Company magazine which I love and I'm glad I got it cause I haven't bought a magazine in a while... and I have an obsession with them! Tonight I think I'm gonna chill (er yes I just used that word) by reading Company some more, writing out my Drama (Last exam!!) and watching some more One Tree Hill. 
See y'all tomorrow!

lots of love Niamh

P.S I know I haven't posted anything beauty-related since I started this challenge but I will soon;

30 Day Snap #10 | One Tree Hill

Heya Guys, 
I'm gonna be doing a pretty quick post because I have a P.E test tomorrow (surprisingly hard) so I should get back to revising for that! Compared to yesterday I had a nice lil day :)

I kind of relaxed today after that super awful maths test by watching a few episodes of One Tree Hill. I'm on Season 8 and it's seriously the best show ever. Admittedly I say that about lots of things but if you haven't started watching this show, you should, over the summer. 
So yeah, that's my day. 
Glued to One Tree Hill and attempting to look over my P.E notes...

love you lots Niamh

P.S I set up a blog lovin' a few days ago just in case any of you use it to read blogs!

30 Day Snap #9 | Rain, rain go away!

 I guess I spoke too soon yesterday when I was talking about how lovely the weather has been because today was miserable.

Let's just say today has not been my day. I guess I should have known that when I pulled back my curtains this morning and saw the rain... it set the mood. Do you remember my math exam that I was worried about yesterday? It was awful. Then the afternoon dragged on because math was the only test that day so we had 3 hours to 'study'. I felt feel sick and I had to go to my after school class until half 6 (I'm doing Media Studies.) Now I'm home and I have three more tests this week and I just feel... crap. Sorry for the self pity and moaning... I just needed to get that out of my system! 

There's always tomorrow ;) 

Honestly though as depressing as it is I'm not too bothered by the rain because I didn't really get to enjoy the sun as I was 'studying'. Let's just hope the nice weather comes back by July...

love you lots Niamh

30 Day Snap #8 | Washing Line & BBQ's

Heya Guys, 
I'm sorry I'm doing this so late but I just spent all evening revising and now my brain is like mush. The worst part is I don't even know that much so I'm nearly 100% sure I'll be repeating the exam! Although my mum told me not to have that attitude ;) 
I guess you could say today has been extremely average... actually below average cause I had a bit of a 'freak out' over my tests. Yes I'm one of those people. I wish I was a calm and nonchalant sort of person but I just get so stressed out. And it's not even necessary. Did you know 90% of the things we worry about never happens?

Wow okay I'm way off topic -  I am in a rambling sort of mood. 
On to the picture!

So in case you have been living under a rock (literally) you'd know the weather has been fab recently! Well okay presuming you are all from the UK.
Anyway my family had like three BBQ's in a row this week cause I guess you have to appreciate this weather while it lasts. Or maybe it was because BBQ's are easier to cook compared to like proper dinners... yeah that's probably it :)

Sunshine makes me so happy - I'm beyond excited for holidays this year...
(I know that sounds cheesy but I don't know how else to say it!)

30 Day Snap #7 | Sunny Photography Session

Heya Guys, 
Whenever I feel stressed (like right now) I need to just sloooow down. I do something enjoyable for half an hour or so and then deal with whatever is making me stressed. 
Yesterday (or was it the day before?) I was getting really down about exams and I wasn't doing anything productive so I grabbed my camera, went outside and started taking loads of photos. It was very therapeutic. 

I'm quite happy with the photo above (if I do say so myself!)
 I was just taking a picture of the plant, I didn't realise there was an ant there until right before I clicked the snap button! 
Anyway if you're getting yourself worked up about something I suggest you just take a break before sorting it out. It doesn't have to be taking photos - maybe it's watching an episode of One Tree Hill, reading Company or having a bath. 
Whatever it is though, enjoy it and then move on to the problem. Hopefully you'll have a clearer mind and you'll feel much more able to face the task ahead. 

Now I'm going to have to start practicing what I preach and tackle some math past papers!

lots of love Niamh

30 Day Snap #6 | Sims, YouTube & Blogs

Heya Guys, 
So today has been... a bit of a fail. 
I have 50% of my Math GCSE on Tuesday and I'm currently failing (YES FAILING!) it.
Therefore my plan was to have a 3 day cramming session so I can do okay... but instead I watched YouTube videos, read blogs and played Sims. SIMS! I haven't played that in ages but for some reason today I felt like playing it. Why do I do this to myself?!

I still have tonight and two more days to study so don't worry about me. I'll force myself to do some work. Today was actually lovely though, so sunny and even though I was procrastinating I had a nice lil day. 
As you can see in the photo I'm using two laptops (one's my sisters) one for YouTube and one for blogs... I know, I have a problem. 

lots of love Niamh

30 Day Snap #5 | France

Heya Guys, 
Two days ago I showed you a snap of me paragliding and today I'm kind of extending that post by showing you another photo I took while up in the air that day.
 Again, I know I may be slightly cheating when it comes to the 30 Day Snap challenge because you are supposed to take a photo everyday to document your month... But I'm revising everyday and how boring would it be to see a pic of that?!
 Therefore I'm kind of using this 'snap a day' to let you know a little bit more about me right now...
Hope you're all okay with that.
Don't worry though I'll start doing it properly soon!

On our holiday last year we went to the South of France near the Alps. Although I don't know exactly where we were (sorry I'm really bad with places and directions and Geography) I know the town we stayed in was really pretty. We stayed in a Chalet and more people actually visit the town in the Winter as it's a Ski Resort. I've never been skiing but I'd love to go someday... 

Where was the last place you went on holiday? Have you ever been on a skiing trip?

30 Day Snap #4 | Sunny Days & A Happy Dog

Heya Guys, 
Today is going to be a quick post because hey it's sunny and I shouldn't be sitting on my laptop all evening! (Trust me I normally would.) 
 The weather in Ireland is amazing at the minute - it's what my mum calls exam weather. I think it's cruel that we have to study when it's so lovely outside. In the end I just do a very crap job at revising!

In the picture my dog Bailey is just enjoying her bone (or a large branch?!) Pretty normal dog behaviour.
Thank God it's Friday tomorrow although I am incredibly jealous of people who are off for summer or at least finished their tests. I have another week to go and I don't know if I can cope.
I really hope that the weather stays like this for a while... I could use it!
Why does the sunshine always make people so happy? 

lots of love Niamh

30 Day Snap #3 | Study Session

Heya Guys, 
Yes. A photo of where I study. I'm following the trend with this one! 

I have a Biology GCSE module later on this afternoon and I'm pretty nervous :( 
I've been really bad at studying this year. Like really bad. 
The idea of repeating exams sounds terrible to me but I'd be surprised if I won't have to. I am the biggest procrastinator ever... remember that collage I showed you on day 1 of this challenge? I did that instead of revising! I watch YouTube videos and old movies I've seen 1000 times. I'll even just sit and daydream. 
It's bad but hopefully next year I'll learn from my mistakes and get organised. 
Yeaaaah. Probably won't happen but I can dream!

love you lots Niamh

30 Day Snap #2 | Paragliding

Heya Guys, 
I'm not sure if I'm cheating or not by using a photo I took last summer? I'll probably be doing this a few times during this challenge because I find my life pretty boring... I mean what can I take a photo of everyday?! 
I guess that's why it's a challenge. 

So last summer I went paragliding. It was one of my last days on holiday in France and I was super nervous. You basically ran down a hill with the paraglide thing strapped on behind you (there was also a person with you... imagine doing it by yourself!) and the wind picked you up into the air. I am petrified of heights but this was one of the most relaxing things I've ever done! I felt so safe, the view was amazing and it was pretty cool. 
Funny story though? I got a really runny nose when I was up there and I kept trying to stop it (I mean talk about the worst timing ever!) but the man who was with me must have thought I was crying since  I was sniffing so much... pretty embarrassing. He asked me if I was okay like 5 times. 
In the photo we had only taken off - so we went higher than that!
Anyway paragliding was fun and if you ever get the change to try it, even if you are scared of heights, you should. 

lots of love Niamh

30 Day Snap #1 | Collage

Heya guys, 
I know this challenge technically started 3 days ago but I thought I'd just join in now and keep going until July 3rd. I'm sure you all know what this is but in case you're unsure Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter created a fun tag where everyone shares a photo everyday for 30 days. It can be anything and all you have to do is upload the photo and talk a little bit about it!

So for my first photo I thought I'd show you a little project I'm doing at the minute. I'm currently completely collaging my bedroom. Well I'm going to do this with three of my walls and then leave the other one. I really enjoy cutting out the photos from magazines, it's very therapeutic! I'm going to continue doing it once my exams are donezo (June 14th fyi) 

I think it's a great way to add a little bit of personality to your bedroom...
What do you think? 

P.S If anyone else is doing the 30 Day Snap let me know below!
