    Morning Girls, Happy Thursday :)

    Quick Q – I;m going to a wedding on saturday & with my lack of skill in whole eye makeup department, I was thinking of being cheeky & going & getting my makeup done somewhere. You know not like a salon or anything, but maybe a trial at a makeup counter or something & see what tips & stuff they can give me …. Any suggestions?

  • Breige says:

    Morning everyone. I think it’s going to be one of those days for me, slept in, can’t find my front door keys and now Outlook isn’t working so I can’t check emails. :( I feel like crying and it’s not even 9 yet!

    cristabelle where abouts are you?

    Morning Girls!

    Cristabelle – I’ve had my make-up done at the Benefit counters in BT2 Dundrum and House of Fraser Dundrum. Personally, I find the Benefit girls in House of Fraser much nicer and better make-up artists too…but have never had it done at any of the other counters there. For most of the counters in HoF I think they expect you to have purchased a couple of items before they’ll offer to do it – def. with Benefit anyway. Also, you generally need to be booked in if you’re planning on getting a ‘full face’ done!

    cristabelle i’ve had my eyes done at benefit a couple of times – they’d prob fit you in at 9/10am. just make sure to emphasise daytime natural wedding look – you’ll still end up with more makeup on than you’d usually wear & a nice smokey eye! (in my experience anyway)

    Daytime smokey – thats a thing right?

I really want to get in contact and its bringin me down a bit that I dont know anything else about him. I must sound like such a bitch but havent really been happy with boyf well on and off for a while just don’t want to hurt him… any advice

  • Jenni says:

    Was thinking the same thing Tcup! How’s the running going?

  • tcup says:

    going really good jenni we ran 30 mins there on tues tonight is the last night but i might have to give it a miss i think i’m going to some album launch thingy. we’re going to do a fun run at the end of the month now too should be good fun! are you going to start??

    anon i dont know what to tell ya if your unhappy with the current BF then dump him but take it from someone who knows the grass is NOT greener.

  • Layla says:

    Morning , quick question for you all , was at a market on Sunday and came across a stand with make up , Benefit , MAC , Dior does anyone know if these are fake ?

  • PinkPanther says:

    Layla – most probably if they are at greatly reduced prices

  • Townygirl says:

    morning ladies. could hardly bear to open my eyes this morning!

    tcup i like the way you changed your picture to red hair, lol

    anon, maybe you need to sort things out with your boyfriend one way or the other then you might be able to forget the English fella? god knows how you’d find him with just his first name and town!

  • Townygirl says:

    oh and i’m with tcup, grass is never greener!

  • Hermione says:

    Morning all!
    Tcup, sorry to hear you can’t make the running I was looking forward to meeting other runners! Swit swoo to he album launch though ;)
    I’m very disappointed I can’t do the fun run later this month but I’m going to LeonardCohen that night.

    Anon – I reckon you’re thinking about this English guy because you’re not happy in your relationship. If so, end it. You’ll never find a relationship you’re happy in if you’re stuck in an unhappy relationship.

  • Poppins says:

    morning girls! anon if ur not happy no point in being wit current BF as tcup said. BUT dont break up with him and expect to find mr english man waiting for you and have this big romance! sometimes its the thrill and excitment of smething new that u get caught up in, as tcup said the grass is not always greener

  • Anon says:

    Yea i was thinkin that myself don’t know if I’d have been so attracted to the english guy if it was a different situtation. I’m so scared of bein alone as well I know thats stupid but all my friends are in long term relationships with kids so i see them f*** all, i know this isnt a reason to stay in an unhappy relationship though. Thanks everyone

  • Jenni says:

    30 mins. is really good Tcup – only seems like a week or two since you started, fair play! I was thinking of joining the first group when Tina started it back in May (I think) but it clashed with pilates, which is now finished for the summer. I’m in a gym down the road from where I live, so really need to start going there the nights I used to do pilates…I just need to give myself a good kick to be honest!!!

    Anon, I’d agree with tcup – there’s no point in staying in an unhappy relationship, but she’s also right in saying the grass isn’t always greener! I was in a relationship for 5 years, then broke up with the guy for another guy who I thought was potentially the love of my life, but that turned out to be an absolute disaster of a relationship in every way possible! In saying that, I made the right decision to break up with the 5 year guy as I wasn’t happy! Don’t know how you’re going to find the English guy though?!

  • Velveteen says:

    Anon….I don’t think you sound like a bitch….you met a stranger (and let’s face it that’s all he is if all you know about him is his age, his first name and where he’s from) on holidays when you and your boyfriend were going through a rough patch and I think you’ve probably romanticised this fella in your head!! You’ve admitted you know feck all about him – he could be in a relationship himself for all you know, he could have been on a holiday with the lads and might just have been looking for a one night stand!!

    What I think you should do is concentrate on your relationship with your boyfriend – have a heart to heart with him – does he feel the same way as you about the state of your relationship? If so, I think you have 2 choices – you make an effort to get your relationship back on track (talk – tell him what bothers you about him and ask him to do the same, try to resolve those issues, do nice things together, spend quality time together) or if you decide that the relationshiop can’t be saved, then you end things and you both move on.

    Anon – Far better to be happy alone than unhappy with someone. Life’s short. Why waste it being unhappy?!
