Between the two of us we own every fragrance in the collection already; Kat has a penchant for Gingembre whilst I find it hard to choose between Bois D’Orange and Rose Imaginaire. Read on »
The last few years has seen an explosion of on-line Irish stores and I for one am glad. Gone are the days of ordering from StrawberryNet and dreading the postman coming with my goodies and a bill for the VAT! Hello to the days were the Irish have finally copped on and started selling their wares on-line. Nowadays there are a plethora of on-line Irish Beauty Stores so there is definitely bargains to be had as competition is FIERCE!
