I’ve been a big fan of Clinique’s skincare range for a while now, in fact most of my daily routine involves Clinique. However when I recently ran out of my morning moisturiser, Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, I decided to broaden my horizons and check out the Body Shop, which I’ve had substantial success in the past when it comes to their skincare range.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22. Ha! Sorry, I had to go there- I couldn’t resist. So it was my birthday last week and to celebrate I hosted a pizza and games night for my friends where we just played board games and enjoyed each other’s pleasant company. Whilst hosting the event was fun, getting ready was equally so! This is how I got myself ready for a relaxing evening surrounded by some of my favourite people in my life. Continue reading
For some reason it took me a very long time to purchase my first MAC product. Maybe it was because I always felt overwhelmed walking into the store or slightly intimidated by the high regard that the brand has within the beauty community. Reasons aside, I overcame my inhibitions and purchased my first two MAC products – and boy was I excited to pop my MAC cherry! Continue reading
Oh my love. When I laid eyes on this palette I literally had to snap myself back to reality. The colours. The packaging. Oh it’s my new baby and I (shamefully) sometimes take it out of my makeup draw just to look at it. Continue reading

You may have guessed that I was hunting down Soap & Glory. After seeing many bloggers talk about their favourite products from the brand I was desperate to get my hands on a few top picks, and when I went into Boots in London I was pleasantly surprised to see a 3 for 2 offer that I couldn’t refuse!

Oh Jo Malone! What an image of luxury and sophistication the name evokes!
On my recent travels I passed a few Jo Malone stores, but – alas – forlornly, I passed by without peeing into that wonderful world of well mastered fragrances. Until! Whilst waiting at the Dublin International Airport for our flight home I spotted a Jo Malone store and couldn’t resist a final peek. Oh what wonders awaited me! Continue reading
During my recent trip to Italy, I had the opportunity to waltz into a KIKO store. I admit that I was slightly overwhelmed when walking in as the store was absolutely packed! But after hearing about the gems that could be found there at budget prices, I persevered through the crowds and found a few items as a sampler of what the brand could offer. Continue reading
