Friday Fictioneers: Life Goes On For Some

 

 

I apologise because this is a bit dark for the new year. But this is from a novel I will be writing sometime in the future and when I seen the image it was what came to mind. But all that aside I hope you all find it an interesting read and I wish you and all your loved ones a happy and a safe New Year.

Life Goes On For Some

 

The creature knew nothing.

 

Of the horror of the death in front of him. A row over drugs. Not planned. Did that matter? A life gone anyway.

The party boy kills the drug dealer who won’t give him more drugs. But was it ok that he was a drug dealer that died? Brother crying because he seen past that.

Sure they put the killer in. He was all charisma and charm. Aren’t most psychopaths? Debunking the theory of the lonely guy in the basement. Debunking is fruitless when a person is dead.

But sure they let him out. Not surprising.

Poem: Christmas, Oh, Christmas!

Image result for christmas shopping

 

 

 

Christmas, oh, Christmas!

The bells ring out,

the dinner is served,

old turkey and ham for the trads,

anything that suits for the mods

and Linda McCartney food for the vegs,

it’s the most wonderful time of the year

with those feet a runnin’

as those shops are a closin’

and everyone telling you

‘I was here first’.

 

 

But Christmas, oh, Christmas, really there’s something special

about the period: family, friends and all humanity

coming together to share

a common compassion,

maybe the last Rolo

and a dance to Jingle Bell Rock

but definitely not the last tin

from the 8-pack of Heineken.

 

 

Hope you all enjoyed my poem for Christmas. I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas time for 2018! 🙂

Friday Fictioneers: New Year, New Boots

 

 

 

 

New Year, New Boots   

 

Those boots were a symbol. The new year dawning. Another year, another opportunity to stand on your own two feet, to put yourself in other peoples’ shoes, to walk the path of life in your own individual way.

Another year to make new memories and footprints, to make long strides, short strides and those inbetween. To make steps towards a future and more steps away from the past.

To keep going but to stop and absorb. To be content in your shoes and live life as your best self. These boots were made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do …

Beauty On A Budget: Christmas Make-Up Look 3 Tutorial

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you my final look in the Christmas Make-Up section for 2018. My next look will be my New Year look. For today’s look, it is more of a creative, artsy kind of look in comparison to the first two looks which I had fun creating and I hope you all like it. 🙂 As always make-up throughout is inexpensive and comes from Dealz, Euro Saver and Euro Giant.

So without further ado let’s get to this …

 

First off here is me before the tutorial:

 

webcam-toy-photo68

 

Step 1

webcam-toy-photo72

webcam-toy-photo73

 

Using Miss Beauty London Perfect Face Primer and Make Up Gallery Make Up Sponges 24 Pack, cover your face and neck and rub the primer in. The smaller triangle sponges are great for any blending of the primer under your eyes. Using Make Up Gallery Gorgeous Flawless Foundation – Cool Porcelain and Make Up Gallery Make Up Sponges 24 Pack, cover your face and neck and rub the foundation in. The smaller triangle sponges once again are great for any blending of the foundation under your eyes. Using Max & More Make-Up Concealer Liquid – Medium dot under the eyes, just in the middle of the forehead leading off from the nose area, lightly around the face and on any blemishes. Rub in well with Make Up Gallery Make Up Sponges 24 Pack. Again the little triangle is great for under eyes.

 

webcam-toy-photo70

Primer, Foundation & Concealer On!

 

Step 2

webcam-toy-photo74

Using Miss Beauty London Eye Brow Kit, put on grey shadow in the palette with the brush provided as an eyeshadow. As the emphasis of this look is on the lips, we will keep the eyeshadow understated. With the black side of the palette and again using the brush provided, brush through your eyebrows. Using Make Up Gallery eyebrow brush to the left in above photograph from Make Up Gallery Cosmetic Brushes, brush your eyebrows with the thin teeth side first and then with the fuzzy side.

webcam-toy-photo75

Using Max & More Eyeshadow Palette – 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette and brush provided, coat top of eyelids with light green, three shades in from the left on the top half of the palette and put the last shade on the left on the top half of the palette under your eyes with the brush provided. Do the same with the final colour on the left in the bottom half of the palette but this time put in the corners of your eyes.

webcam-toy-photo76

Eyeshadow On under, over & in corners of eyes! And Eyebrow Shadow On!

 

webcam-toy-photo78

Mascara On!

Using Miss Beauty London Waterproof Mascara, place on the top and bottom of your top lids and the tops of your bottom lids. When coating the under part of your top lids wriggle the brush through for extra volume and length.

webcam-toy-photo82

Eyeliner On!

Using Make Up Gallery Brown 4 Soft Kohl Eyeliner do under your eyes.

 

Step 3

webcam-toy-photo79

webcam-toy-photo80

Using Max & More Conceal, Highlight and Contour Cream Palette, use shade in top right corner with brush from Make Up Gallery Cosmetic Brushes above, highlight the top of your cheeks.

webcam-toy-photo81

 

Step 4

Using Make Up Gallery Brown 4 Soft Kohl Eyeliner, draw down two lines from under eye shadow and draw the outline of holly leaves and holly buds. Using Max & More Eyeshadow Palette – 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette and brush provided, colour in holly leaves with green shade on the bottom row three from the left. Sadly I couldn’t find out who the company was that created the red lipstick. The shade is called 334 Mercatura and was made in Germany. But there is plenty of inexpensive red lipsticks available and any of them in a similar shade to this one will do the job. Using the red lipstick, colour in the holly buds using the brush on the right in the Make Up Gallery Cosmetic Brushes picture with the three brushes rising out of the packet in step 3.

Step 5

Using Miss Beauty London -Russet, coat your lips generously.

webcam-toy-photo84

 

Step 6

Cover lips with Miss Beauty London Lipstick Sealer. Set with Max & More Makeup Setting Spray.

Step 7

Friday Fictioneers: All This Social Media Nonsense

 

 

 

 

All This Social Media Nonsense

 

‘All this Facebook, Twitter and what have you? Last year I got three business deals through in the time my niece spent on Social Media. All this buying clothes and tapping away on that machine. Today some tough love is in order Jack. She needs to learn how to be out in the real world with real people.’, I said to my brother.

He smiled, sipped his tea.

‘Zara has an online fashion business that’s doing very well Andrew.’, Jack smiled.

I sip my tea. He and I know my business is crumbling but talking big makes me feel better.

Beauty On A Budget: Christmas Make-Up Look 2 Tutorial

On December 10th, I was out at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre with my sister Sharon at Christmas Queens and in this tutorial I am re-creating my make-up look from the night. All products used are from Dealz, Euro Saver and Euro Giant. There is some similarities between this tutorial and the last tutorial so you get two similar looks but with differences that make a whole new look. The next tutorial will be very different from these two but I thought it was a nice look and I wanted to share how it was done with you all.

So without further ado let’s get to this …

 

First off here is me before the tutorial:

Using the smaller brush from Make Up Gallery Cosmetic Brushes shown above, place the gold shade (3 shades in on the right in the above photograph) on your eyelids from Max & More Nude Look Palette and as a highligher blend into the top of your cheeks and put in the corners of your eyes for a little extra shimmer. Using Max & More Mascara With Argan Oil – Black place on the top and bottom of your top lids and the tops of your bottom lids. When coating the under part of your top lids wriggle the brush through for extra volume and length. Using Make Up Gallery Brown 4 Soft Kohl Eyeliner do under your eyes. Using Make Up Gallery eyebrow brush, the bigger one shown above, from Make Up Gallery Cosmetic Brushes, brush your eyebrows with the thin teeth side first and then with the fuzzy side. Using Miss Beauty London Eye Brow Kit, put on the black side of the palette using the brush provided and brush through your eyebrows.
