Review: I <3 NYX

Bloggers all over Ireland were overjoyed when American brand NYX arrived on our shores. However, the brand is still only available in selected stores so it can still be hard to get your hands on.

So imagine my glee when I found out that Sam McCauley Chemist in humble little Waterford was going to start stocking the coveted brand. I was over the moon, let me tell you.

Without delay I rushed in and…

Fairy Godmother or away with the Fairies?

So it was all go this past weekend. After some last minute planning my brother and his partner successfully wet the babies’ heads, literally. Yup, their twins have been baptised and celebrated.

Any of you who know me will know that I was super excited to become an aunt for the first time recently, well imagine my excitement when I was told I had a godson thrown into the bargain too.

Below you are…

Taken the plunge into adulthood

Apart from that very short post on Sunday, I have been a bit on the quiet side when it comes to blogging. Well that is because I have taken a fairly big step and a leap into adulthood. I have finally taken the plunge and moved in on my own.

Yup, that’s right I now live all on my own, in a small one bedroom apartment. There is no one to greet me as I get in the door from work, no one to ask me how…

Fanny Crown, The Queen of 60s Style

Fanny Crown, The Queen of 60s Style

What pops into your head when you think of the 60s. For me peace, love, music and the mini skirt all come to mind. Now as many of you know I am vintage obsessed! And in my mind one of the most revolutionary items in fashion was the mini. Not only did women no longer have to dress like their mothers but for the first time young people were leading the fashion stakes.

#ForeverAlone and Loving it!

Fair warning, this post is going to turn into a rant! So if you don’t want to hear it then look away now (I have lots of other posts that aren’t as angry as this once, please feel free to browse through them).

So it all started on Saturday night when I was out for a few social drinks with my housemate. All was going great and we were having a good time until IT happened. I did a very stupid thing…

Review La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

As some of you may already know I have always been a fan of La Roche-Posay. So I was delighted when I received the new Effaclar Duo [+]from a Cara Pharmacy goodie bag. (Yes I am still getting through all the fabulous goodies from the ITWBN meet up, from AGES ago).

So basically this cream is meant to improve blemishes, oiliness and clogged pores in the skin as well as correct and prevent marks. It…

Review: Just Addicted to Endora

Endora.ieis an Irish owned clothing shop who have recently launched their online shopping website. I felt so lucky when Endora got in touch with me to review their clothes (the first time anyone has approached me to review a product) and I was more than happy to oblige. They generously let me browse the website and choose an item myself, which was a ridiculously hard decision, but finally I…

Review: No 7 products

A couple of weeks ago Boots were running a promotion with No 7 and it was something I had to get in on. The blogging world was all a flutter with talk of what was in the beautiful gift box that you received when you bought two No7 products. So off I went to my local Boots to see what all the fuss was about. Now No 7 is not a brand I would have a lot of experience with but to be honest I may be…

Review: Le Roche Posay Rosaliac CC Cream

Recently I have meandered into the world of the CC/BB cream. For the past year or so I have been hearing great things about this CC cream and that BB cream but to be honest I didn’t really know what they were and I was too comfortable with my makeup routine to go about changing it.

But then it happened! Horrors or horrors I ran out of my daily foundation half way through my face right before…
