I am a lady full of contradictions; anything with the word natural appeals to me but likewise I have been known to part with an awful lot of money for the latest in cosmeceutical products. It’s a beauty bloggers prerogative,right?! Since becoming pregnant though I do have to tread more carefully through the world of beauty products, as both many natural and manufactured ingredients can cause issues. Read on »
It’s with joyous disbelief (with added “about flupping time”) that I write these words… Spring has sprung! It looked like it was never going to come, what with snow and freezing temperatures punctuating much of March, but it’s definitely here. We’ve cut the grass, opened all the windows to give the house a good airing, and *gasp* cracked out the sunglasses. And I’m telling you it’s not a moment too soon. I was starting to suffocate under my Aran knits and microfleece cozy opaque tights.
There’s nothing quite so evocative of spring and summer than a light, fruity, floral scent. Think cherry blossoms shaking in the breeze, the sweet magnolia scent of a summer’s eve, oranges, lemons and limes almost bursting with juice. Nom. I’ve packed away the dense, musky, albeit comforting Winter scents and am embracing the spritzes of the season. Here’s hoping I haven’t jinxed it for all of us! Read on »
And here’s yet another haul post from me in which I think I’ll let the pics do the talking. I recently got my paws on the latest collections from Model’s Own: Ice Neon and Fruit Pastel. To get around the delivery restrictions, I used Parcel Motel. If you have any questions about that let me know in the comments. Click through for eye candy! Read on »
I am putting a million and one pregnancy beauty products through their paces at the minute however I thought that some of the other non-beauty bits and bobs I have amassed were worth a mention on the blog. Its for the benefit of any other pregnant ladies out there that are on the look out for some feel good products,so apologies in advance to our non pregnant readers if I am boring you to tears!
First up is the Carriwell Maternity Support Band which I bought online from Inhealth for a mere €13.00. I already had sacroiliac joint pain before becoming pregnant and the additional weight I am now carrying is putting a heavy strain on my already sore joints. This awesome little belly band from Carriwell helps to alleviate the strain on my lower back by gently lifting weight of the pelvis. I would highly recommend it for any ladies with back issues; you can thank me later
I don’t usually post too much in the way of fashion or accessories but I picked up some new bits recently that I thought were worth a mention.
First up was part of my valentines gift from my feller: our last valentines day together as just a twosome, as come August we are going to be Mam and Dad to a little chisler! A cute birthstone bracelet from Alex & Ani that has left me wanting more from the brand! Its peridot (for August) and its expandable which is pretty excellent as I have tiny child like wrists and generally find it hard to find bracelets to fit comfortably.
This post ain’t for the faint of heart. May I present the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid lip colour collection. I think I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Summer is on its way and I know this purely because of the amount of fake tan bottles dropping through my letterbox, certainly not because of the temperatures! Most of the tans I have tried this year are ones I have bought and used myself previously but a new one for me this year was Bronz Express. I met with their team recently and rather embarrassingly I had not heard of the range previously! Pretty mortifying for someone who calls herself a beauty blogger to be honest! Read on »
Merumaya is a new British skincare brand that launched recently; unfortunately I missed out on meeting with the brand whilst they were in Dublin and I am now raging after using and loving some samples I received. I started using the sample sized products last month and ended up purchasing some full size products direct from Arnotts. Read on »
