VIDEO: Fashion Haul Mango Sale and New Look

Ok i’ve done it, i have posted a YouTube video. Yes its cringe, i look like im presenting the RTE news (although wouldn’t mind channeling a bit of Anne Doyle’s finesse) and my vocabulary needs seriously improving. As i was saying on my snapchat (@yourbeauty.ie if you fancy following me) put me in front of a camera, person or dog and im blubbering mess. Talking is not really my forte when im uncomfortable, but is something i am willing to work on and master the art of conversation.
Anyway, back to the important stuff: the SALES have started!…

The Edit – The Net-a-Porter 50% Off Summer Sale

If you are following my blog for a while, you will know that nothing beats a good sale. I hate paying full price for something online, so i either wait for discount codes or sale season. Yes, this means that i am missing out on certain things that just get sold off before they get discounted – but if im not willing to pay full price to begin with, i must not love it that much. At least that’s my shopping philosophy. Beauty wise, ill splash the cash without a second thought.
The summer Net-a-Porter Sale is amazing each year,…

Quay Australia Sunglasses Collection

I have to blame Mags (she blogs over on EmeraldEyeliner.com) for this year’s sunglasses obsession. She came to visit me one time and she had the coolest pair of blue mirrored sunglasses. I instantly had to find out where she got them from (Asos) and how much they were (around the €40 mark). After our date was over i ordered my first pair Quays and the rest is history.

Quay Australia Marble My Girl Sunglasses
My first ever Quay pair and my favorite one by far! Marble frames, sturdy yet light weight with a gorgeous dark grey mirrored lens….

The Hair Care Novelty: New Joico Co-Wash Moisture Whipped Cleansing Conditioner

Co-washing is the latest trend in hair care, ok maybe a few years old now but still a novelty. I remember seeing an Ojon cleansing conditioner doing all the blog rounds and wandering whats all the fuss about.
If you’re not sure what co-washing is: its using a sulfate free cleansing conditioner instead of the traditional shampoo and conditioner wash. So if you like, a 2 in 1 product that doesn’t really foam, leaves the hair clean and not striped, doesn’t weigh down the strands and enhances the natural curl of your hair, if let air dry. A traveler’s wonder product!…

My Health Story: Living With Underactive Thyroid

Many of you may not know this about me, i have a under active thyroid condition. And why should you know this about me? Its honestly not a big deal. I usually manage it well, i just have to take a little tablet daily, every morning before breakfast, for the rest of my life.
Recent events made me write this post, i felt my symptoms were swept under the carpet by my GP and i felt i struggled getting help after i had my little girl. You see, if i felt unwell during pregnancy was because of the pregnancy and now,…
