My Top Picks of The Year
I know I’m a little late to the party on this one but I still thought I’d hop on the bandwagon and make a post featuring my favourite beauty products of 2017. Moving country gave me the opportunity to try out so many new things that have since become an integral part of my daily regime.
Funnily enough, most of the products I loved the most this year are actually makeup related as opposed to skincare which is a new one for me. Are you ready to see what they are? Let’s start!
Some Things I Thought You Might Like
Out of all the holidays we get throughout the year there can be no doubt that the Christmas break is by far the most important time to relax and recover some energy before heading into the bustle of the New Year.
In today’s blogpost I wanted to share with you guys some of the things I got for Christmas that I have been enjoying while I cosy up by the fire back in my family home in Ireland. While some of these things concern fashion and beauty most actually fall into the entertainment category so I really think you’ll find some things you love in today’s post. Let’s start!
Christmas is Coming!
The first of December has finally arrived which means it’s officially time to get into the festive mood. And what better way to mark the first day of Christmas than starting our advent calendars?
Today I’m going to unbox the L’Occitane en Provence advent calendar and show you all 24 of the mini skincare products and haircare products that came in this amazing package.
A Post All About Sheet Masks
As many of you know I recently moved from Ireland to France and ever since I first landed in Paris I’ve been utterly enamoured with the influence of the beauty industry over here. It seems as if everywhere you turn there’s a Dior or a Chanel counter to be found, and better yet, there’s a Sephora around almost every corner. Now don’t ask me why we don’t have this beauty-haven of a franchise over in Ireland. It just never came our way for whatever reason, so you can only imagine my delight going in to spend my time scouring the beauty counters for the big brands that are often hard to stumble upon back home.
Of course I went a little crazy when I saw that Sephora had their own line of sheet masks available so today I thought I would grab a few to try out and share my thoughts on them with you. Now I know I’m probably a little late to the party here, but as I said, these masks just don’t exist over in Ireland so I was really curious to see what they would be like. Read More

Trying out my Natura Palette for the First Time
Earlier this week I finally received Marzia’s Natura Palette in collaboration with Winky Lux after so much anticipation and today I am just so excited to finally be able to share my thoughts on it with you!
Hey guys! Welcome back to another beauty post here on our blog.
In this week’s video I wanted to try out some Kylie Jenner Lip Kits as well as the In Love With The Koko set of liquid lipsticks. I had never given these hyped lippies a try ever before in my life and I thought what better way to do it than on camera! If you wanna see my reaction to them and know what they’re like, you can check the video out on our channel here.
While you can watch my overall impression of them and see how they apply in the video, I also thought I would give you a little sneak-peak here and share some of my thoughts on them with you!
The first thing I had to try was obviously one of the infamous lip kits. The one I opted for was the ‘Strawberries and Cream‘ shade which is a velvet matte lipstick. Honestly I was so shocked with how my lips looked with this even after applying just the lipliner. It was as if I had injections, they just looked so much more bloated!
Both the lip liner and they lipstick apply really smoothly and evenly and the lipstick is just so thick and creamy, making it a dream to apply. The pigment is extremely strong and it lasts for a good few hours throughout the day, even after eating and drinking! This lip kit is definitely one of my best purchases of the year because the quality is just so amazing. I can’t stress it enough.
The next thing I got from Kylie Cosmetics is the In Love with the Koko set which contains four liquid lipsticks. My favourite of them is the shade Doll which is this beautiful coral/red colour. The set also contains a gloss (Sugar Plum) which has a very pretty, glowy hue as well as two other lipsticks, Bunny which is a darker more mauve shade and Baby Girl which is also quite a coral shade with a pinker undertone to it.
The quality of this set is just as good as that of the lip kit. The only exception being that the lipsticks don’t come with lipliners to accompany them. Honestly though that really doesn’t bother me at all because I think they look just as good by themselves. The colours are just so rich and vivid. I love how they look!
Overall I am just so in love with these products. I wasn’t really expecting them to be worth much of the praise that they receive at all but after trying them out I have been in love with them ever since!
So that’s all from me for now. Don’t forget to check out the video here! Thank you guys so much for reading and for watching and I’ll see you very soon in my next post!
