Fionnuala Jay is Ireland’s resident pop culture guru, and seen as Love Island is the biggest reality show around, and set to dominate the culture upon its return in just a few weeks time, we caught up with the influencer to find out her feelings on the series before it starts up for another summer.
Speaking to the Cork woman at The Platinum VIP Style Awards, she revealed that despite her best efforts the series remains a guilty pleasure she intends on watching.
“Every year I say I’m not going to watch it, and then I do. So I love Maya [Jama], I love what she is bringing to the show, and you know when the sun comes out. Winter was kind of hard, the sun is out now, so I’m feeling like I want to get into my bikini and I want to be coupling up with people, so I will be watching, I’m not going to lie. Reluctantly I will be watching.”
Of course, the podcaster will have to take time out of her jam-packed day to indulge in the reality show, which won’t be easy as she is “very, very busy at the minute.”
However, Fionnuala sees this as a good, explaining: “But I’m loving it, I like being busy, lots of podcasts on the go, lots of Instagram things, so good to be busy.”
And, of course, it wouldn’t be the most glam night of the year without the inside scoop on Fionnuala’s beauty routine, so the influencer shared her three dessert island beauty products with us.
“That’s a very hard question, I would probably say I’d have to bring perfume. Because even though I’m the only one there I think I would have to smell nice. My favourite perfume is the Lancome Idôle, its a skinny bottle, really easy to travel with so I’ll have room for my other two items.”
“And then I love a lip gloss so I would probably bring the Maybelline Lifter Gloss, love that in Topaz. Then probably eye-liner, you can’t go wrong with like a liquid or a pen eye-liner cause I need the flicks, again even if I’m the only one looking at myself, I need to have them.”
