My Favourite Snapchatters

Hello Everyone !

I hope you're all well. Over the last two months or so, I and a lot of the Irish blogging community have become slightly (ridiculously) obsessed with SNAPCHAT. I absolutely love it,I follow mainly all bloggers, YouTubers and some seriously kick ass female entrepreneurs! I get to know the person behind the blog and see what they're REALLY like. It has also helped me find some other amazing bloggers and I thought I'd share some with you today. Also before I forget my snapchat name is 'chasingrubychat'

1. Laura aka 'LaurasViews' is one of my absolute favourites, for the same reason I love her YouTube. She's very honest and true to herself. She tells you exactly how her life really is, there's no airy fairy non sense. She is also hilarious, even though she doesn't mean to be. Also she updates her snapchat with her health and fitness changes and is super inspiring !

2. Julie aka 'JulieKing13' I am obsessed with Julie's hair, it is just amazing aside from that she is a wonderful blogger who always shares her beauty tips and hauls. Definitely follow her!

3. Rosemary aka 'rosemarymacabe' Rosemary is the Junior editor for Stellar magazine. I love her stories because she's very honest and isn't afraid to give her opinion. Also her has flawless skin and I'd just really like to be friends with her!

4. kate kelly aka 'katekelly1'  Kate is also a fellow blogger, she also works in the Cocoa Brown headquarters ! Just like Julie, Kate has amazing hair and is such a sweet girl and I am super excited to have afternoon tea with her in September!

5. Charlene aka 'charlenefmakeup' Charlene is a fab makeup artist and if she lived closer, I'd be booking her constantly to do my makeup. She does fab tutorials and mini reviews on products. if you are a fellow beauty lover, then you NEED to follow Charlene!

6. Melissa aka 'Liplou' is a mammy and beauty blogger. I love her snapchat stories and all the little updates with her son Jake, super duper cute! Definitely give this lady a follow!

7. Jen aka 'Toodollymakeup' You need to follow Jen if you too are obsessed with Beyonce! Jen is a wonderful person, she often gives little random motivational snaps and I just feckin love her! She is also a blogger and MUA if I am correct, her makeup is always perfection.

8. Claire aka 'Irishbeautyt' is a fabulous beauty YouTuber, she is seriously so lovely and down to earth. She brings you through each and every day form morning until night and I just love her stories, she also does  mini product reviews and tutorials!

9.Tanya Rachel aka 'Tanya_Rachel is another fab beauty YouTuber, she is also a fantastic MUA. She is just so lovely and absolutely stunning so definitely give her a follow!

10.Sharon aka 'Sharonleavy' is the beautiful blogger from 'behind green eyes'. The reason I love Sharon's snapchat is because she's very honest and funny but still very nice. Definitely give Sharon a follow if you haven't already!

11. Riona aka 'Rionacahillyt' is a fellow beauty youtuber and is absolutely stunning, her 'bad makeup days' are my holy shit I look amazing days! Definitely give her a follow and check her out on YouTube too for amazing tutorials!

Hi Everyone,

I feel like I haven't posted in months even though it's only been two weeks! Anyway I'm back and today I wanted to share all the details of the Elite Munster Bloggers Event. I didn't get as many photos as I would have liked, but that was because I was organising it so I was running around making sure everything was ok.

The event was on in the beautiful Strand Hotel in Limerick. The staff were so amazing and helpful. The room was beautiful. We had a stage and a tweet wall. The tables were set up with the bloggers goodies bags and at the end of the room there was sofas to relax and network on.

I had a great day, everything came together really well. We had some AMAZING brands collaborate with us on the day. Inglot Ireland did two makeup masterclasses, a day time and night time look. The lovely Liz from Forever Living spoke about the company and all it's amazing products! We also had the wonderful Oliva from Elizebeth Arden educating us on all of their products and the fact that Shaws offer a 10% discount to all students on ALL MAKEUP AND SKINCARE!!!! We also did a networking session that I hosted. I really wanted all the bloggers to get to know each other, so often I go to events and only talk to a few people because, one I'm very shy and two, there's often not really an opportunity to. SO we did a networking blitz and it went down really well. I was over the moon about it!

We also had some amazing brands sponsoring us with the blogger goody bags such as Miss Fit Skinny Tea, Rimmel, Seventeen, SO SU, Inglot, forever living, Elizebeth Arden, Nima Brushes, Nia, Georgia June, Sally Hansen and Your Nails magazine.

So here are some pics of the day!!!

I just want to say a massive thank you to all of the companies that helped us and to the Strand hotel for providing such an amazing service ! And of course to everyone who came it was so lovely to meet and chat to local bloggers !

20 Things I Learned In 20 Years

Hi Everyone !

I've been reflecting recently and really taking time out for myself. I've learned a lot in my 20 years here on this beautiful planet and I want to share twenty of them with you. I've seen a few bloggers do posts like this in the past and I always love reading them. I hope you enjoy reading what I've learned so far...

  1. Spend as much time with grandparents, because one day, they won't be here any more.
  2. You never know where life is going or where you'll end up, no matter how much you plan.
  3. People change, you change, friends change and that's ok.
  4. Pubs are much better craic than a nightclub.
  5. It's ok to not know what you want to be when you grow up.
  6. Looking after yourself is very important ( Drink lots of water, exercise, eat clean, get check ups regularly, sleep, wear a high SPF and most importantly, listen to your body).
  7. Disney songs will always be the best songs.
  8. Getting I.D'd once your legal is brilliant.
  9. I now like wine like wtf ?
  10. You sound more and more like your parents every day. Scary.
  11. There's no better feeling than fresh sheets.
  12. You care less and less about what other people think.
  13. You start to believe in yourself
  14. You were made to be you, stop comparing yourself and be the very best you can be because that person is awesome.
  15. Friendship takes work so cherish the friendships you have.
  16. Enjoy the small things, beauty is everywhere and being grateful for all the small things will change your perspective on everything.
  17. It's OK to fail.
  18. Your parents might actually know what they're talking about. Sometimes.
  19. Stop being so mean to yourself, start being your own best friend.
  20. Always believe that something fabulous is about to happen.

What have you learned in your life so far ?
