Valentines Day Style

I’m single, yet again this year but I actually love Valentine’s Day. I work in the city centre and I love seeing people walking around with flower and even balloons, it always makes me smile.

On valentines days, I think it’s a nice to add something red into your outfit. Now it doesn’t have to be a red dress it could be a handbag or even a red lip.

Here are my Valentines inspired picks.

If you are brave enough to go with the red dress.

River island have an amazing wrap dress €80. Click here to buy

Zara also have a an amazing wrap dress with a sexy split €49.95 click here to buy

If you are not a dress fan perhaps a red top, Penney’s/Primark have an amazing animal print top for €8, just add black jeans, black over sized blazer and heels, you are sorted.

If animal print isn’t your thing, how about a Zara polka dot blouse €19.95 click here to buy.

If you are looking for a small splash of red, what about a handbag.

The bag I picked, it’s a little different but I love it, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day its from Penney’s/Primark €10.

A big trend this year, is a belt bag and this bag is also perfect for Valentine’s Day €19.95 Click here to buy

Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Diamond Crystalli Liquidi Review

Alfaparf is an Italian brand and my hair dressers Introduced me to there products, this is my first time ever purchasing an Alfaparf product.

My hair dresser had always used this oil on my hair and the smell is amazing, it’s the reason I bought it.

So let’s get down to the benefits, gives your hair instant gloss, protects against humidity and harsh external agents that leave the hair dull and brittle. Hair looks, feels and smells amazing. It also reduces blow dry time.

After washing your hair you apply a small amount to your hair before brushing, this also helps to reduce knots.

Now I haven’t got a clue of it helps reduce blow dry time, as I don’t blow dry my hair. I have naturally curly hair, I wear it curly well except when the hair dresser straightens it. Curly hair needs hydration, I find using an oil after washing gives it an extra boost. I did notice a difference in my hair when using this, my hair was more glossy and silkier also did I mention the smell.

I’ve also used it between washes, to give my hair a bit of shine, help with frizz and to freshen up my curls.

The main question will I buy again, yes I will be buying it next time I’m in the hairdressers.

Price point for 50ml, its priced at €19.95 and it lasts ages Click here to buy.

Happy shopping

The Ritual of Ayurveda Body Scrub Body Scrub

I have been on the look out for a good body scrub, that would remove stubborn fake tan and also prepare my skin for tanning.

At the start of December, I went to Kildare village (outlet) for the day. I knew there was a Rituals there and I had never used there products, but had heard good things. Now one annoying thing about buying it in Kildare Village, you have to buy a minimum of two products per purchase.

All Ritual products our parabens free and they do not test on animals, more importantly this body scrub is 100% free of plastic scrub microbeads. Which means it doesn’t cause a risk to marine life.

When buying, I went for the packaging I liked the most. As they have different collections, I went for the dark red, which is the The Ritual of Ayurveda this is an ancient wisdom from India that helps you to improve health and well-being.

The body scrub contains ancient crystal salt from the Himalayas, which is what you want when you are trying to remove two layers of fake tan. Also salt is a natural anti bacterial, so when buying a body scrub make sure it has salt in it. I also find when I use a body scrub, my skin is always left feeling dry and tight but after using this my skin felt hydrated, which is thanks to the sweet almond oil which also great for unblocking pores. Even after showering you can still feel the oil on your skin.

The scent, which for me is important in a product. I like a strong scent and this didn’t disappoint but it wasn’t over powering and even a few hours later I could still smell it on my skin.

Now the main question did it remove the tan, yes it did.

Price point, €19.50 so let’s be honest for a body scrub it is expensive. I got it in the outlet and it was very reasonable, of course I lost the receipt. As I said before it was a minimum of two purchases, I also got a shampoo and conditioner which I will do a review on soon and that came to €26.95 which works out just under €9.00 which is a great price. So when I run out, I will definitely be heading back to Kildare village.

Lots of love

Posted in Fashion, My week, What I Wore

My Christmas

I hope everyone had a Happy Christmas. Christmas is all about traditions, in my house you always got one present Christmas Eve and of course Christmas Eve pyjamas.

This year I went for the grinch pyjamas and I just love my Christmas Eve box

It alway has things for a relaxing Christmas Eve, face mask, nail polish, shower gel, grinch sock and my favourite jelly’s.

Christmas Day, I have to say I was spoiled rotten this year, with all my favourites.

On Christmas Day, I wore my Warehouse sale outfit. That just arrived on Christmas Eve and I love a co-ordinate.

On Christmas night, I always have new pyjama. I’m a little bit obsessed, with pyjamas.

St Stephen’s day, is always a fun day. It’s is nearly like a second Christmas Day, as we alway have another big turkey dinner.

I wore a suit, I picked up in Penney’s/Primark, a few months ago. This suit had to be taken up the joys of been 5’1. I also picked up a white knit jumper also from Penney’s/primark.

I did pick up a few bits in the sales and I cannot wait to show you, it’s abit annoying as it all has to be taken up first.

Happy shopping

Lots of love
