Neo Strata – Active Anti Ageing for the over 30’s

Galloping towards 40, 2018 was the year of trying more cosmeceutical type skincare and in the first half of the year I dedicated my routine for three months to cult favourite Neo Strata. I think I am one of the longest standing beauty editors that loves this brand and have always championed it even before…

Huda Cheerleader

Huda landed in Brown Thomas Cork in November and wow what a counter. From the gorgeous space to the incredible eye products I was pretty much instantly hooked. I follow Huda Kattan on social media and love her look. Do what exactly does it offer Irish skin-tones? I guess the lipsticks and eye shadows are…

Alex Steinherr X Primark

I was delayed writing this review for many reasons but primarily because the utter devastation you all would have felt at reading the reviews and then hot footing it to Primark, only to discover the goodies were our of stock would have ruined your festive season.

Self Love or Self Actualisation?

The most monumental thing I have learned in 2018 was that self care and self love is the most important thing you will ever do for yourself. As a Catholic, although lapsed I was reared in a loving family with the all encompassing Catholic Guilt that each of us in the 1980’s had drilled into…

We all have small insecurities about ourselves things we would rather not have to look at everyday and for me working in the industry I do it means that I’m sometimes in the spotlight a little. Most notably with various events etc I have to attend. I’m no stranger to a little tweak, a ml…

Going full length…..

You may have noticed I am dipping my toe cautiously into fashion blogging. The reason being that although I’m not by any means an amazing representative for being a certain body type. I am proof that you can be plus size and embrace your look. I welcome all commentary on this of course just like…

Lipsticks

Lipstick is something that I love since getting enhanced lips. I must own over a hundred of them at this stage. I do tend to stick to nudes or reds ( I mean talk about the sublime to the ridiculous ) . And I do really love a good quality matte one. Firstly I’d like…

We need to talk about … Double Standards

The news over the last number of weeks has been pretty grim and the general narrative is in no way gender neutral. Women by our very nature are nurturers, we make things better, try to cope and see apparently better at ” coping”. We are expected to be paragons if virtue and keep our knickers…
