Brows by Benefit – The New Brow Collection Review

Probably the biggest Benefit launch of this year, as if it wasn’t enough that they were reshaping brows all around the world with their popular Brow bars – now Benefit has launched a brand new, extensive collection of brow products. Everything from brow conditioners, pomades, skinny or fatter brow pencils, brow gels… literally everything you need or you didn’t know you needed for your brows, Benefit has it covered.
Benefit has kindly sent me four of their new brow products in my shade to test and create my perfect brow: BrowVo Conditioning Primer, Goof Proof Brow Pencil, Gimme Brow and Ka-Brow!…

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

I said im not going to buy the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. I have a million highlighters, don’t need a whole new face palette full of them. So when i went in Space NK on Grafton Street for a browse i ended up getting it not even 5 minutes in store. The SA only had to show it to me, swatch on her hand i was sold. Its AMAZINGLY beautiful. My vocabulary is not rich enough in adjectives to help me properly sing this palettes praises.
The packaging is out of this world gorgeous –…

VIDEO| Beauty Haul: Kiehls, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Becca

Yes, another video haul! At least is Beauty for a change. Like i mentioned in previous posts, i have had money saved since last year to treat myself to some nice things after i had the baby. I debated between getting an expensive bag or hitting the high street sales hard in June and July. I choose the later and as the result i have daily deliveries of shiny new stuff. Materialistic me? Never!
Kiehls had one of their seasonal sales in Arnotts – i got loads of stuff last November during their sale so i was (im)patiently waiting for the summer one….

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!…

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!…

The Nuxe SPF 30 was tested this weekend, for the second year around during our seaside picnic. Did i mentioned i got the cutest picnic basket ever in the House of Fraser Sale?…

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,…
