Taking part in the Irish beauty bloggers secret santa was so much fun! The girl behind all the organising was Aisling of Total Makeup Addict who put in a lot of effort organising and pairing up all the irish beauty bloggers. I got the best gift ever from the lovely Chloe of Very Lovely Stuff who really spoiled me with some amazing products. I even tested out a few of them last night at a party! Continue reading
Hey all, I thought I’d do a different #SBBC post today and focus on my new brush collection. I’m pretty settled with my Blank Canvas Cosmetics brushes which I featured a while ago on the blog. I find they are such great quality. However, I decided to splash out on a NIMA brush set when I found them online with Groupon for half price. NIMA is an Irish cosmetic brush company created by Niamh Martin. The set I got was the Sunshine 7 piece brush set. Continue reading
It’s not an area I put a whole pile of effort into, I pretty much stick to the same things all the time or else just buy whatever is on offer at the time. The one constant is Femfresh, an essential for me ‘down there’ to ensure no irritation or an upsetting of the pH, which believe me is incredibly common. But that’s another days post!
I picked up the Colet Shampoo in ALDI around a month ago and oh my god it is just unreal! I remember this shampoo from years back, I think it used to have different packaging but I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered it. It’s fab and smells so beautiful. It’s 100% Irish, paraben free and it uses natural ingredients sourced from around Ireland. It costs around €4.99 in supermarkets but I got mine for €1.99 when it was on offer.
I’ve been teaming it with my Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner for no other reason than it was in offer in Boots and while living in New York, I became obsessed with this shampoo. The annoying thing is, it costs more to purchase over here but it’s great value because of the size of the bottle. Now, I have very wavy hair when its left to dry naturally but since I’ve been using this, it’s left my hair incredibly silky smooth and less kinky, if ya know what I mean!! You can purchase Organix in Boots.
There is nothing really special about my current shower gel, it’s just one of a selection of Bath and Body Works shower gels I have. Again, I must be missing NYC a lot because I’ve been teaming it with BABW body lotions too. Aww, the memories.
So that’s it really. Not very exciting stuff really in the shower, and I’m kinda glad because I’ve enough products in other aspects of my routine so it’s good to keep it a minimum. What are your favourite bath/ shower products? Have you tried any of these?!! x
My good friend Mia posted this song to my FB profile and while it took a few listens to get used to The Villager’s new direction in music, I have to admit it’s a cracking tune. The single won’t be released until October 22nd but you buy it on iTunes now! Can’t wait to hear more from the Irish band.
