The Best Of

Well hello there and a very Happy New Year to all of you! I have been incredibly busy since before Christmas and have not had the time or the head for writing. Christmas turned out to be so busy for me, I had to drive all over the country in the worst weather, which of course meant that I was white knuckle driving along the atlantic coast of Ireland, terrifying! Then I had a few shoots, which are going to be so beautiful. I will share them as soon as I can. I have now had all of the duvet days that I wanted and I am so ready to get back to normal.

I am going to do a series of posts on what I think are the best of the best, and I want your opinion. I sometimes feel that I may get too comfortable with the products that I use mostly and don’t give other products a chance. I am sure that I use about 10% of my kit, yet still I manage to spend serious amounts of money on new products to the market and then don’t use them! Going into a department store when all the new collections are out is like a kid going into a sweet shop for me.

I am going to do the “Best Of” for lots of products from Eyeliner to Serums so please do leave a comment on what’s your go-to product from Skincare to nail polish’s. I find snooping into other peoples makeup kit fascinating so please do not hold back!

There is a prize worth over €100 which will be picked at random from the comments below and it will be some of my favourite products, so get commenting people!!

Looking forward to hearing all your top pick from your makeup bags/kits.


Thanks so much
