Urban Decay Nail Varnish. I’m in love.

Urban Decay Nail Varnish. I’m in love.

I have given my nails a little break from the Shellac/Gelish phase I’ve been going through and have gone back to Urban Decay nail varnish. Oh my goodness, if the people at Urban Decay would let me kiss them all I would. The nail colour range has such a strong pigment that one coat is enough and even better you don’t really need a top coat. I have been wearing mine for three days now with not one chip! Urban…

Christmas decorations on a budget.

Christmas decorations on a budget.

I was determined this year to do Christmas decorations on a budget, and thankfully the lovely people at Dealz asked me to accept the challenge of decorating my house under €50. I should add that I don’t have a lot of space to decorate which made it slightly easier but creative all the same. To make the most of my space, I decided to look at a garland. What Dealz offer though is the DIY approach! I bought a plain…

Beauty Express: Nail Wraps

Beauty Express: Nail Wraps

I like my nails to be well manicured and one way of keeping them looking nice is by applying nail wraps. Most nail wraps claim to last for up to ten days, but with such a strong claim requires some testing. With our lifestyles requiring a lot of typing these days, any kind of decoration needs to last, to withhold banging on keys throughout the day. So I decided to put two well known brands to the test to see…

Laser hair removal: Urbana

Laser hair removal: Urbana

As you might have read I have been going to Urbana over the last few months to try out laser hair removal. After five treatments now, the real difference is starting to become apparent. How? Well I pretty much have baby-like skin on my legs now. There is not one hair in sight, and shaving seems to be something I can now say bye bye to. To add, my underarms, which are the most sore part of the whole laser…

Beauty Treatments: New Meso Vytal at Bespoke Beauty

It’s Beauty Treatments review time!

Elaine was the one person who gave me advice and a series of treatments no dermatologist was able to do, to clear my skin and rid it of breakouts forever. And now, Elaine has a new beauty treatment which you…
