Normal Service Will Resume Shortly

I’ve been a bold blogger…in more ways than one. I’ve been super busy at work for the last few weeks, and will continue to be be til Christmas so I’ve really been neglecting the blog of late. I’ve also been very bold doing lots of online beauty buying. I’ve loads of stuff to review for you, I hardly know where to start. But start I will, and soon. I promise.

Goodbye & Good Luck

It was with great sadness and much weeping and wailing that the end of was announced on Saturday 4th January 2014. Created by the McDermott sisters; Aisling & Kirstie in 2006 and later headed by Aisling, was a beauty lovers haven where we could revel in the unabashed girlieness of it all without having to feel ashamed of the level of our obsession.

New Year, New Attitude


Happy New Year to you all. My New Years plan (not resolution, I hate resolutions) is to get back into blogging more regularly, I’ve had some health problems recently among other stuff and just haven’t been in the right mindset for it. I also want to loose weight and tone up. I’ve a bridesmaid dress to fit into in May and I will not be the tubby one out of the 5 of us standing up there.

Beauty related, I want to branch out and try some brands that I haven’t before. Hourglass, Lime Crime & Charlotte Tilbury are top of my “to try” list. Any other recommendations would be gladly accepted. I’ve gotten some new beauty bits as birthday and Christmas presents so I’ll be doing some reviews for you soon, I was not very good about taking photos before use though (I know, I know, cardinal sin for a blogger, but I was just so excited to try them) so you’ll have to take them as you find them.

Anywoo, Happy New Year and talk to yis soon…..I promise this time.

30 Days of Beauty…..Day 5

Day 5

Day Makeup Look

To be honest, this changes to from day to day. It’s a variation on a theme really, for the most part I stick with a fairly natural look. The odd day I throw in a bright lip to spice things up a bit. I don’t often wear eyeshadow on a day to day basis, unless I’m going somewhere. Soooo this is today’s look:

Day 4

Hair Style

Yes, technically I know this should be more like day 8, but I’ve been out and about the last few days as the hubby is on holidays. I went SHOPPING….woooo, got a few beauty bits so there will be reviews coming in due course. Also got some clothes & shoes in Zara & Topshop. Anywoo, back to the gruaig. My hair is long & layered. I have a half moon fringe (think Zooey Deschanel), it is brown with blondish ombred ends.

This is the image I took to the hairdressers for inspiration on the haircut….am I the only nutter who saves hair pictures on their iPhone to show to hairdressers???

Day 3


d17069436d7ee5329dd36d0ac4de2259I am a fiend for Essie nail polishes. I don’t go in for all that nail art stuff, cause (a) I’d be rubbish at it, and (b) couldn’t be arsed, and sure where would I find the time? Painting my nails all the one colour which watching trashy tv is a relaxing treat of an evening when the munchkin is gone to bed. Continue reading
