I have taken the plunge and this year I am going to write a blog post everyday until Christmas. I am really looking forward to that to be hones. This is going to be a challenge for me as you nay know that I am working all the time. I really don't know what I am going to writing about. I have read a few blogmases from last year but I don't remember what they were about. For todays I am going to just tell you about my day.
It was a good start to the day because it wasn't raining. I love the mornings that it doesn't rain, that way I come into work all nice and dry. Today wasn't really that busy in the coffee shop but then again there was two more people working with us so that gave us a great help. I was behind the salads bar. My role was to ask the customers what they wanted to eat and drink. Then I would call the order into the kitchen, and lastly I would bring down the food if there wasn't anyone to do it.
I had my full half an hour lunch today, some days I might just take the 20 minutes if its really busy, I don't really mind it. For my lunch today I had salmon with Thia sweet chillie sauce some Asia cabbage and pasty salad. I love our salads they are just amazing. As there was so many of us in the evening the cleaning was done much faster and we were out by six in the everning.
Now I am just at home relaxing. I need to have a shower put Rhys to bed and maybe watch some Criminal Minds or Bones. I really need to catch up on those two.
Thats all for me for today. I hope you liked this post. If you have a blomas let me know about them in the comments so that I go and have a read.
What did you do today?

So about a week ago I went to the shopping centre with Rhys and I needed to pick up a few gifts. That didn't happen as I really didn't plan on what I would get for anybody. While I was in Shaws looking around I remembred that I needed a foundation. I went on hunt for a good foundation. I wanted a change Rimmel as I have been using the same foundation for years without change. The foundation that I picked up was the Maybelline Satin Liquid Foundation in the shade 10 Ivory.
I have never tried any of the Maybelline line before and I was excited to try this product for the fist time. It went on very smoothly and evenly. The shade is just right for my skin tone. I was really impressed with the coverage that it provided. I have a few red area problems and it coved it all. I didn't use any concealer on top as I wanted to know how much I can get away with.
I wore it for over ten hours, and I have to say I was really impressed with it. The most of my face looked pretty good. The parts around my nose and mouth the foundation wore off, but that happens all the time so I am quite use to that. I didn't mind it at all. I would defenatly recomment this foundation to a friend as I think its a must try at least.

I was talking to my friend and he has told me that he know people doing YouTube and they use thier phones to record and edit. That gave me an idea to get back to my YouTube. I got a new phone and the camera is very good. I played around with it for a few days and I was very happy how it looked. My next step was to find a good editing app that would be perfect for editing my videos, and it would look professioal. I have found an app its called KineMaster. I still have to get to know what it can really do. I have recorded a short video and it turned out pretty good. I was happy with it, but it was a very simple video.
These are the plans that I am currentlymaking for my channel.
- I am going to make vlogs i.e vlogmas
- Nail art
- First Impressions
As you may know I have found employment and I am working five days a week. The plan is to record on my days off edit in the everning and upload during the week. I really can't say what days I am going to upload as I still have to figure everything out.
If you have any questions please don't be shy and ask me.
Here is my new video check it out, and let me know what you think.
Thank you all for reading my blog and don't forget to subscribe to my channel and to this blog.

Its been so long since I posted but life again has took over. Last week I got a new phone which is up to date and I will be able to blog of it and maybe even make videos for YouTube. I have so much planned for the future and I am hoping that it will all work out for me.
Nearly two months ago I got employment and I am so happy about that. I am working in a coffee shop. This coffer shop is very popular because the coffee is cheap but very good quality. Everyone loves out coffee. We also serve hot and cold food. I never knew that a coffee shop could be so busy for lunch time. Everyone that I am working with is so nice and I am so happy to be working there. I totally believe that 'what is for you, won't pass you by' and I believe that this was for me. I am learning how to make coffees, no two days are the same.
One of the guys that I am working with had told me that dome people make YouTube videos and edit them on their phone. That gave me an idea. I have currently downloaded a few editing apps but I am not sure if I like them. I will have to play around with them and see how I get on. If you know of good editing app do let me know. I would love to restart my YouTube again. I miss it so much. I have to buy new products to get me going. I will keep you all up update on that on my twitter. Crazy_Chrissie . I think I will leave it here for the time being. Thank

Hey guys. Happy Tuesday everyone. I know I haven't blogged in ages but I had loads to do. At the moment I am looking for a job and its proven to be harder then I thought.
A few months ago I started knitting. I had bought some cheap yarn and needles to practice. In all of that time these is what I have knitted in the last two weeks.
I have been looking around in so many places for free knitting patterns and its not easy to find. I was thinking that when I knit something that I am really proud of I could post a knitting pattern here for you guys to try. I know most of you probably don't knit, I am just trying to get more people to my blog.
What do you think, let me know.

A few days ago I found a place where they give Russian lessons. For those of you (most of you) who don't know, I am originally from Belarus and now living in Ireland for the past 13 years. I don't have anyone to talk to here so I have forgotten all of my native language. I know what you are all thinking, you are a fool. Yes I already know that. It was hard when I fist came here to Ireland, I had to try to settle here and make new friends so my language wasn't a priority. Now that I have Rhys it would be nice for him to learn Russian too. He is picking up Irish very fast in playschool. I have to contact the school proving the lessons and see will they have room for me.
I am currently on a job hunt. I have been doing my CV's and now all I have to do is find a job. By the way its not as easy as I thought. My last two jobs were handed to me, I didn't have to apply with a CV. Light a candle for me please.
My friend had a baby a few days ago. I still haven't seen her but as far as I know she is still in the hospital. She has a lot of family so I am going to leave her along until she is back at home. The baby was 9lb and 2oz. That is a big baby like. I am so happy for her though.
The weather has been very bad here for the past week and I haven't enjoyed my May bank holiday like I always do. The River fest is on during the weekend and there is so many things on during the whole weekend. Market stalls to a huge BBQ. It has been raining since like Tuesday and there was no point going out to the rain, Rhys wouldn't have enjoyed it either. Hopefully next year will be better weather.
I think that is all of my news guys. What have you all been up to for the past week?

On the third of September 2011 at eight minutes to eight Rhys was born, weighing at six pounds and twelve ounces. When I heard what his weight was, I was delighted, because while I was pregnant the doctors in the maternity never stopped saying to me that the baby was under weight. At one stage one doctor said to me that if he didn't start growing and putting on some more weight that they would give me steroids to bring him on. Within a month Rhys had gained weight in my belly and the doctors were happy enough with that. He was eleven days over due and I personally think that it helped. Around 11.45 I was induced and in an hour my waters broke. I was in slow enough labour from there on. By the time morning came I was in full swing of labour the pains very unreal. That night I was taken up to the delivery room where I received my epidural. For those of you who may be thinking of getting one, I would rather not. The doctors will tell you that you are at risk of back problems after it, there is a chance that you could be left paralysed. What the doctors don't tend to tell you is that the baby is also sedated.
I had to find that our for myself when Rhys was born and with in hours he didn't want to drink milk, he wasn't keeping him body temperature. That was all down to the epidural. Rhys was taken down o the ICU for almost five days. It was such a bad feeling, I had to leave my baby under nurses that are under staffed to look after my baby. Rhys was a hungry baby he needed to be fed every three hours, so the nurses held him out for an extra hour and he was crying for that, which I didn't know. To add to all of this one of the nurses gave him a dummy. Which are bad for his teeth and it was them that had advised me not to be given the baby dummies. I know I am just ranting now.
After being in the ICU for five days Rhys was left home. It was such a happy day for me. I was delighted to hold my baby boy in my arms. I moved into my boyfriends house (Jeff) and him mum. She was a great help she told me what to look out for and all of that. At times though I felt that she was doing more harm then helping me, like when he was teething and his temperature would go up, Jeff's mum kept on saying what could happen with a high temperature. I was more always on my toes. Being a first time mum is hard and you never know what is around the corner. I love being a mum its such a rewarding job as some people may say. I don't see motherhood as a job though. It a way of life. I think I am going to finish here for today. I am not to sure yet when I am going to be posting on this topic, I am hoping that if I do it once a week that it will be a start.
I hope you all enjoy this post and let me know about your experiences of child birth.

Jeff had bought some Easter egg hunt treats for us all to do an Easter egg hunt at home, but even that didn't go to plan. In the morning I hard boiled some eggs and had plans to paint them with Rhys and everyone in the house. It turned out to be just me and Rhys. The paint was broken so we used some markers to colour the eggs. Rhys enjoyed it and I think that was all that mattered. I hid the eggs around the front garden and Rhys had to find them. He was so excited that he had to hide them and we had to find the eggs. This carried on untul Monday.
A few of us went out Sunday night for some karaoke. It was a good night, lots of dancing and having fun. Since then the weather has been fantastic ,Rhys and I are really enjoying it. We went to feed the swans down by the river Shannon, Rhys was trowing in the bread into the swans and shouts to them "It's ye lucky day swans" I had to laugh at him. There were other people feeding them but because it was him the swans should feel lucky. I love the way he comes out with funny things like that.
What did you get up to during the Easter holidays? I hope you had a safe and fun Easter.

This particular polish is by MUA and the shade is called Apricot Candy. Its a peatchy shade, once I seen it I had to have it. I never has this shade of polish before.
This is a square 6.2ml bottle. The consistency is a little watery for me and applies some what streaky. Two coats would get it opaque with minor streaking. Three coats would be best for those of you who would like a very opaque coat.
I don't particularly mind having small amount of streaks as long as its not too visible. I am not a fussy person. All of MUA's nail polish is under €2. For that price I think that it is a good polish and I would totally buy the rest of the line. I like the packaging, the bottle is small and it would be very easy to travel with. Overall I like it and I would buy more.
Have you tries any of MUA's products or their nail polishes. Let me know what you though of them. I would love to hear from you in the coments below.
Thank you for stopping by.

First off I have been looking for a job and still unemployed. It is so frustrating to look for a job. I'll still keep a look out for one. I don't know if I had told you about a blog type of website that I was on. I forget the name of it now, but for every article you would write, you would get paid. It became very sketchy by the time I left it. They weren't paying as muchas they were suppost to when I singed up. Then all these rules came in, so to make this awful long story short, I wrote over one hundred articles and made my €50 worth, naturally I redeemed. I knew I would have to wait for at least two to three months to get paied though paypal. To this day I still didn't get paid. I think it was a total scam. To be honest I didn't fret to much about it, because at the end of the day I didn't loose out on anything, I didn't have to pay to sing up all that was wasted was my time.
For the past few weeks I have started knitting. I bought myself a pair of needles and some cheap wool. The reason for the cheap wool was so that I would see if I liked it or not, or how good I would be. I really love it, its so relaxing. At the moment I am learning how to make a guage swatch and how to make a childs jumper from my measurements. I have been researching on YouTube how to knit a jumper. I enjoy making my own items like clothes, that is why in school I loved woodwork and metalwork. I was the only girl in metalwork for two years. It was fun. I gave it up because the last two years really focused on more of the mechanical side of things. I didn't really want to be a machanic.
Some news on my Rhys. He is getting very big everyday, and talks like he is six and not three. He doesn't like to be called a baby, and has an opionion on evrything. We are nearly there with potty training. He is drinking less during the night and I am hoping in a other few weeks there will be no nappies. I am looking forward to that day.
In other news Jeff and I are looking for a house to move it it. We need our own space at this stage, Rhys needs his own room. Rhys has so many toys at the moment that there is no room to put them all. I have to do some sort of car boot sale to get rid of some of them. Well I think that is some news that I can think of for you all. I hopw you enjoyed this post and I have more coming in the next few days. It has all been planed out.
Thank you again for stopping by it means the world to me.
