Current Zara Wishlist

I love Zara, and constantly browse their website despite the dour & miserable looking models. Seriously though, don’t you just want to give them a sandwich & a hug? Continue reading

There’s a new Naked coming

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 24 hours, there’s a new Naked palette on the way from Urban Decay, the Naked Smoky. 

There are skant few pics available on the internet yet, but here are a few courtesy of Temptalia & Urban Decay.  

There’s also a sneaky peek video on Urban Decays YouTube channel here showcasing a gorgeous metallic smoky look. 

I’m loving the cool silvers & greys (totally me) & the addition of the green & purple just tops it over the edge for me. I will definitely be making my first Naked purchase since the first one, the others just didn’t grab me in the same way. What do you make of it? 

Stila Spring/Summer 2015

I was delighted to be invited to my first blogging event last week by Claire from Distinct Distribution. It was of course, the Stila Spring/Summer 15 Masterclass showcasing Stilas #BombshellCollection with Brand Ambassador Sascha Jackson. I hastily booked my train and hotel as no way in hell was I gonna miss out on this. Now unfortunately the Masterclass happened to coincide with ALOT of snow in Dublin, so the commute was less than ideal. But after a train, a 1 hr 40 minute taxi ride, a Luas ride and a 10 minute walk in the freezing cold, I made it, scruffy as hell, but I made it. Typically the second I arrived in the door of Harvey Nichols, my phone battery died, so I have very few photos. Thankfully the lovely Claire charged my phone for me for a bit so I do have a few photos to show you. Continue reading

2014 The Year Of….


The Selfie…..just kidding. Though trust me, you wouldn’t want to see a close up of my face right now, I’ve been sick all over Christmas. It’s been a quiet one in this house, myself and the small boy have spent our days in front of the fire watching Harry Potter movies. His father has been dodging the germs by carrying on with the usual Christmas tradition of going out and getting hammered. Chance would be a fine thing. Anyway, I digress.

For me anyway, beautywise, 2014 has been mostly about SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Or the year I gave all my money to SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Continue reading
