Is it time to delete Facebook??

I am very seriously considering deleting my Facebook account. I have deleted the app from my phone, and don’t really check it often. My concerns would be work related, I have a work Facebook page that really doesn’t do that much for me but I can see that people do look at the images and…

Spa of the World™ range from The Body Shop

The Body Shop has forever been a firm favourite in my house, my Nanny loved white musk and whenever I smell it it immediately transports me happy memories. It’s amazing what scent does for your brain. There was a time in school when everyone wore Dewberry, which in hindsight I am sure all of the…

Roger & Gallet

Roger & Gallet in Ireland is not as well known as it is everywhere else in the world. In fact on a recent trip on a super yacht, eh hem, in Cannes these were the toiletries that were in the bathrooms. So if Roger & Gallet is good enough for a super yacht they are…

NARS announce Bella Hadid as new campaign model

She is for sure the model of the moment with major campaigns all over the globe, but I don’t think she has ever looked this good! In true NARS style the makeup is so simple and elegant that it almost made me cry. Very few brands do makeup like this, most of them want to…

Fathers Day

So this Sunday is Fathers Day and in true typical fashion many of us are at a loss for what to get the man who has everything. Now if I gave my dad skincare he would not appreciate it at all, I am trying to be diplomatic but not appreciating it is mild. But there…

CHANEL’s new OMBRE PREMIÈRE

I am proper in love with these new products from CHANEL. The colours are so rich and the texture of the cream shadow are sublime. When I do makeup I 90% of the time use cream shadows, I love how they blend, I love how they feel on the eye and what I love most…

Clinique’s BIY pigment drops

These landed on shelves this month, I am a bit behind on my blogging as I ended up in hospital and was recovering for a while. But these Blend It Yourself pigment drops are kind of magic. You add a drop of the pigment to your moisturiser of choice and it becomes your foundation. One…

Dry Lips??? No more

Since I started doing makeup I have always been on the lookout for the perfect lip hydrator. When working I always have Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream in my kit, I rather the fragrance free one as the original has a string taste, not horrible but strong. I don’t think I will ever not love…
