Natural Summer Skin

Natural Summer Skin

During the day I really like to go for the ‘natural-ish’ look. When the sun is shining there’s nothing worse than having a full face of thick & heavy make-up. I will do a more detailed post about the best ways to high light and contour your face but for now I just wanted to share my favourite day time make-up products. These are the products I use when I want my skin to look ... »

The Breakfast Club By Daniella moyles & Yogism

I popped my Yogism cherry yesterday and I loved it! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. When I have a tasty breakfast in the morning I feel energised, satisfied and ready for anything (without breaky I’m a crank) When I heard about the breakfast club (TBC) in yogism in George’s St. Arcade I knew I had to have it. Daniella moyles has joined up with Yogism to supply Dublin with an... »

Paleo Lemon & Honey cookies

These Paleo cookies are so tasty and guilt free! I made this batch (after one failed batch that I don’t want to talk about…) in less than half an hour! I made 10 cookies with this recipe, but you could make them smaller and have more to nibble on. Tweet me your pics if you give this recipe a go please 🙂 Ingredients: 4 oz almond flour (available in some Supervalus & Dunnes and healt... »

10 #TipsForWhen – You’re Hungover

1.) I know this is probably too late but… prevention is better than cure – During the day before your big night out ensure to drink at least 3 litres of water, eat some carbs with your dinner and then take a dioralyte about half an hour before your first drink.

Nutty Protein balls

Nutty Protein balls

I felt the urge to do some baking but I decided to make some of these quick and easy protein balls. I’ve never made protein balls before so I just used whatever I had in my house! This recipe makes about 20 (I only ended up with 17 because I kept making the odd ginormous ball at the end when I was getting lazy!) but If you keep them all nice and small you could end up with more! Ingredients:... »

The Lads Mag Debate

The Lads Mag Debate

This debate has been something that I’ve been interested in since October last year. Although we don’t have the same ‘glamour model’ culture in Ireland as they do in the UK, I’m curious to hear who’s side most Irish girls would take in the battle of the feminists V the glamour models.  Members from ‘Object ‘and ‘UK Feminista’ organised a ... »

Fat is the new black.

Fat is the new black.

Choosing the ‘Low fat’ option in the hope to lose a few pounds? Stop, before you go any further – check the nutritional content and you will be shocked to find that the ‘low fat’ version is often higher in sugar, artificial sweeteners and flavourings, than its full fat counterpart. The media, food industry and healthcare systems across the world have name and shamed saturated fat consumption as on... »

My ‘Go To’ Make-up Look

My ‘Go To’ Make-up Look

I’m always getting asked what make-up I use and how I apply it. I’m good at doing my own make-up but I’m certainly no professional! I’ve put together a step by step post on my ‘go to’ look. I haven’t included my skin care routine but I’ll post that separately. I was a bit nervous to put the ‘before and after’ pics up because… well&#... »
