    One minute read: Iconic Bronze extra dark tan mousse

    So I tried the Iconic Bronze Extra Dark Mousse. I’m literally shaking in my towel here. I’ve just re-read that title line and from a gal that uses medium tan and feels 👍🏻 I cannot see how this is going to end well! Iconic Bronze So I was lucky enough to be invited to the Iconic Bronze extra dark tan launch in the Iveagh Garden Hotel in Dublin. Such an amazing night and I spent it chatting to the most amazing girls from the blogging world. I must admit that I absolutely adore the community (and friendship) that local bloggers have built up. I am wearing a jumpsuit from Simply…

    Dry damaged hair stops here 🤦🏼‍♀️

    I’m a natural blonde. I’ve been a natural blonde all my life … well except those times I wasn’t lol. I’m naturally a golden blonde and I hate it. I’ve spent years (and ££££) trying to get the perfect shade of blonde. But with all this bleaching and toning etc my hair has become a dry Sahara and rather than chop it off here is my top tips for keeping your hair in good order. 1. Get regular trims Seriously it will grow back and look so much better. Plus a trim can be a few mm and not a huge whack off the bottom. 2. Get your hair colour…

    1 minute read: Iconic Bronze Tan Eraser

    Iconic Bronze Tan Eraser. I don’t know about you but I am completely sceptical about the idea of a tan eraser. In my mind it will be something chemical that will strip my skin of all goodness and leave it dry, patchy and feeling tender. When you have spent hours scrubbing to remove a tan in the past it seems impossible that it will just magically “lift” off with a miracle product. I have been using the bPerfect tan these days and I alternate between the medium coconut spray and the dark watermelon mousse. It’s my favourite tan ever and I especially love the spray which I can use and…

    Make Up Pro Store Launch at Foyleside Shopping Centre

    Make Up Pro Store Opening at Foyleside. I was kindly invited to the relocating opening party for the Makeup Pro Store in Foyleside shopping centre in Derry/Londonderry. I have been so lucky these past few weeks to be invited to such wonderful and exciting events. So I jumped into the car and sped up the road like Michael Schumacher (yes I’m that old 🙈) Anyway they were holding a #propaintparty which was the use of body paint/ uv paint and all things unusual while showing off the new store. Oh my word it was so amazing! The store is bright and spacious with plenty of on hand experience to guide…

    Josh Wood colour

    Shampoo Junkie So a couple of months ago I was sent a couple of products from the range at Josh Wood to try. I choose the blonde shampoo and conditioner, dry shampoo and the everything mask. These products have been developed by Josh Wood who is a leading hairdresser. They remind me of the Trevor Sorbie and Charles Worthington products from the 1990s. The Products I was eager to try them so I got straight onto it. That was two months ago and they are still in my bathroom… In my shower …. And have become my absolute favourite shampoo, conditioner, treatment go-to that I have ever used. My hair…

    REN skincare

    Ren Skincare I have only recently heard of REN Skincare. As you all know by now I am trying to take better care of my skin. I must admit that I have been lucky up to now with my skin. I’m 37 and to be honest I have very few lines and wrinkles. With fatigue being a huge part of my fibromyalgia symptoms I’ve always had dark circles under my eyes and they can get quite puffy at times, especially when I’m tired. I feel that there are plenty of products out there for mature skin or young skin. However not a lot of products target specifically where I am at…
