Revision Tips!


I just want to start with a small disclaimer to say that everyone works and revises in their own way - some of these tips may be absolutely useless for you! But personally, these have all worked well for me and they're the methods that I still continue to use in my last year of A Levels! I've got mock week the first week back so I've had to sacrifice my Christmas Break to lots of school work sadly, but hopefully it will pay off!
Just in case any of you were wondering, I'm taking Psychology, English Literature and Maths (Statistics) and these pictures come work from a variety of the subjects! It's important to remember that not only is every person different in how they revise, but every subject is different too!

Japonesque Eye Lash Curlers

I plan on doing a review on most of the beauty products that I got for Christmas after I've had a chance to have a little play around with them but I didn't even need to give this product more than one try to know that I love it!

On Christmas Blogging


Personally, I love What I Got For Christmas blog posts and videos. I guess it's partially because I'm so nosey, but also because I love seeing how different people react to different gifts and unique ideas that I can steal for birthdays/Christmas next year!
However, I don't think I would ever do one.

2015 Book Challenge

I've decided that 2015 is going to be the year that I start reading more often, for school and for pleasure! I found the PopSugar Book Challenge online and found it really interesting, so I've decided to follow it! That means that this year, I have to read:

Treating Myself to Make-Up Brushes!

I was browsing eBay the other day looking for god-knows-what and I stumbled across these make-up brushes. Personally, I've never been one to invest in high end make up brushes as I think you can find some really nice ones on the high street (I'm looking at you, Real Techniques!) but even I found this set to be a complete bargain! Included in the set are 5 brushes, of which 5 of them are for the face, and 5 are for the eyes. I haven't tried out the brushes yet, hence why they look so pristine in these photos, but just from touching them so far they feel lovely and soft, but the brush itself feels more robust than I was expecting.

Our Christmas Traditions!

1: The first thing that we do to start off the Christmas season each year is that we put up our Christmas tree! This usually happens on the first Sunday of December, but this year it happened on November 30th because we couldn't wait until the 6th to get it out!

My True Love Gave To Me

I was intending on finishing this book before I posted about it but due to school taking over my life a little bit, I haven't had the chance to finish it yet, sorry!This book is your typical teen romance novel set at Christmas with a twist - it's actually a collection of 12 short stories! It features authors such as Rainbow Rowell (Fangirl, Attachments), Gayle Forman (If I Stay), Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss) and David Levithan (co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) and there really is something for everyone!

Christmas Films!

So, I may have been having a 'down' day the other day and upon realising we had no Christmas DVDs to hand to cheer me up, ordered a few off Amazon...

Elf/Elsa Make-Up

Hello everyone! I posted a picture of the make-up I was wearing to work on Sunday to my personal Twitter (@MeganMcMahon02) and it ended up getting quite a few favourites, so I thought I would do a post about it!I'm quite lucky in that I'm not given many specifics on how I must do my make up for work, and some of the other girls barely wear any at all, but I'm a bit of a sucker for having an excuse to go all-out, so I really do! I like to do something a bit different every week to keep things exciting and this week, I tried to go for something a little bit inspired by Elsa from Frozen!

WARNING: Henna in Hair Dye

Not a very seasonal blog post I must admit, but I'm doing it because I know it'll appear on my Timehop in about a week's time and now's the best time for me to sit down and write about it.
I've known that I'm allergic to henna (PPD) since the age of 15, when I got a black henna tattoo on holiday in Turkey and it led to an allergic reaction that scarred my arm with an imprint of the tattoo, which you can still just about see to this day.

Christmas Colour-in Puzzles Tablecloth!

On Saturday, I spent the day helping my mum run a stall at the Christmas market at my little sister's school. It was a really cute little affair with lots of independent, local businesses running stalls, so of course we had to do a bit of shopping!

Today I thought I'd do a little review of one of the more festive products that we bought - a colour-in tablecloth with Christmas puzzles all over.

Ted Baker 'Franny' Purse!

Hello! As we're approaching the Christmas season, I thought it might be helpful to do a review of my Ted Baker purse which I got for my birthday earlier on this year, in case any of you are considering adding it to your Christmas list but want to know a bit more about it before you make the splurge!
