Smart Charger – Review

Smart Charger – Review

There’s nothing worse than when your phone is running out of battery, especially if you’re on your way to meet someone or on a night out. A lot of places won’t even charge your phone for you behind the bar anymore as they don’t want to accept responsibility for it in case anything happens – which is fair enough! This smart charger phone case is my new favourite access... »

OOTD – 50 Shades of Greige

OOTD – 50 Shades of Greige

Last week I visited Next in Dundrum Town Centre where I got to pick out a fab outfit for their event in The Dean Hotel on Harcourt Street. Next were celebrating their new next day delivery service in Ireland and were show casing their stunning Spring Summer collection.

Do’s and Don’ts of Dating

Do’s and Don’ts of Dating

I asked my Facebook and Instagram followers what they thought were the biggest turn offs when dating someone new. A lot of people seemed to think that there isn’t much of a dating culture here in Ireland which I think is kind of sad!

I recently tried out this cheek & lip cream palette from The Balm called ‘How ‘Bout them apples?’.

Face primer & setting spray from Fuschia

There’s nothing worse than when you spend ages on your make-up in the morning and then by Lunch time it goes patchy, faded and sometimes looks like you’re wearing none at all. I train first thing in the morning and then I do my make-up in the gym (as I often have to arrive to jobs camera ready). When I have an event to go to after work I don’t have time to remove my make-up and s... »
