Pay day wish list 💘💘💘

Heyyyyy girlies!

Hope ye are all well. Payday is coming up soon so just throwing up some of my favorite pieces from the last month! 🌺 Don’t forget if you are buying off Missguided or Pretty Little Thing ALWAYS PAY IN POUNDS! They don’t convert the currency properly so you end up saving so much money paying in pounds instead of euro for any of my Irish gals. As always just click on the image to shop 🐵

Happy shopping!

How I edit my instagram pictures

Hey guys and gals,

So this is definitely my most requested post ever! I get messages about this all the time asking what camera I use, what apps I use, what filter etc.. I try to reply to everyone but to make things simpler I’m just going to answer all your questions in one post!

What camera do I use to take my photos?

To start 50% of my photos are taken on my iPhone 6s. The iPhone camera aesthetic is so nice and i love it for selfies and outfit pictures that I don’t want to be as HD such as mirror selfies or outfit photos for a night out. The other half are taken on my camera; the Canon Powershot G7x. By no means do you need to invest in a camera but this is just the one I use for blogging. It’s so handy because it acts like a DSLR but is so compact that I can just throw it in my bag and bring it with me whenever I want.Canon_PowerShot_G7X_L_1

It also has WiFi to make it easy for me to transfer images to my phone or take pictures with my phone connected to my camera. The screen flips up which is perfect for selfies and chestfies. Here are some of the photos I took using the flip screen or the built in WiFi:

The only problem I have with this camera is that it doesn’t have a great white balance so a lot of my photos can turn out quite yellow. My solution for this is using the next app and my absolute favorite.


So the app Facetune is my all time favorite. It costs abut €3 on the app store and is so worth it because it has so many features. My favorite tools to use are details, patch, smooth, canvas and most importantly WHITEN.

So on Facetune there is a tool called whiten which many people think is only used to whiten your teeth. I use whiten all the time to whiten my background. You have to try this trick, it will change your Insta life. By whitening the background it makes your pictures look so much cleaner and professional. Here is a before and after using the whitening tool:

The left is the original straight from the camera and the right is after whitening. I honestly feel like this trick makes it look like a whole new photo. Whitening is key girlies, whitening is key.

I loooooove this app. Snapseed is great for tuning your images so things like ambiance, brightness etc… My favorite tool to use on it though is “select”. With select you can select a certain area or color in your photo and just edit that specific part you have focuses on. This means you can saturate one part of a photo without saturating the entire picture.

What filters do I use?

Image result for VSCO

Last but not least is VSCO cam. I use VSCO for filters and my favorite filter to use is C1, F2 or O7. I usually adjust one of these to about +4 and then use the Aden filter on Instagram as well.

And that is it!

Here s some before editing and after, both taken on an iPhone 6S:

So ya that is basically what I do for every picture I post. I am no expert but these are just a few tricks I have picked up. If you are really into Instagram and are having trouble getting a theme then I would advise to just pick a routine and do the same filters etc.. for every picture. Just have fun with it and try not to copy someone else exact theme, take inspiration and make it your own.

I have linked a few videos at the bottom of this that I found really helpful when looking for some Instagram hacks so if you want some more tips just check them out.

I hope you enjoyed this post and that I answered everyone’s questions. Please let me know if these tips helped you or if you have anymore tips for me! You can find me on snap (theemmanoodle) or contact me on Instagram (@emmanoodle_) and I’ll try answer best I can.

TTYL for now babes!

Blink & Wink, Dawson Street

Hey gals,

So this week I had the pleasure of being treated to a full set of lashes and a brow shape and tint by the lovely girls at Blink and Wink. I have gotten my brows and lashes done in many different places but the service provided by Blink and Wink almost beats them all!

First of all, their salon is stunning. The mirrored walls, chandeliers and amazing interior design adds to the whole experience. Everything is so pristine and beautiful inside.

So I got a full set of lashes done, along with an eyebrow shape and tint as part of their new Autumn package. This combo costs €115. I have never had great lashes so have always been a fan of eyelash extensions. Blink and Wink uses mink lashes which means you can hardly feel them on your eyes. I asked for very natural, fluttery lashes and that is exactly what I got!

I’ve gotten my lashes done a few times but these ones are so light weight it honestly feels like you have nothing on your eyes.

Eyelash extensions are so good for when you just want to look fresh and awake. They save so much time getting ready in the morning.

I also got my eyebrows shaped and tinted. She picked the perfect color for my skin tone and the exact shape I wanted. You cant go wrong with strong brows and lashes gals!Processed with VSCOcam with 7 preset
