There’s something about cold weather and dark days that definitely demands a little more from your make-up bag. My top three winter beauty adjustments are to go for a foundation with a little more coverage, up my skincare game by using heavier oil-based products and opting for a darker berry or red lip.

Step Into The Story: Christmas Shopping at Kildare Village

Step Into The Story with Kildare VillageIt is this time of year again where we are running around like headless chickens trying to source the last of our Christmas presents. I must admit, shopping at this time of year is not my favourite thing to do – I can’t stand the shops crammed with agitated people frantically searching for gifts. This year however, we did our Christmas shopping at the Kildare Village Shopping Outlet. Not only was it a bit of a one stop shop but it was also beautifully decorated and, most importantly, open til 9pm! Continue reading

The Camel Coat

Camel Coat from Penneys / PrimarkI fell in love with this camel coat from Penneys / Primark and when I saw the €35 price tag I just had to have it!

L’Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation

Everyone loves a bargain and for me finding a foundation I love that costs less than €40 is a double whammy in that department. I found it hard in the past to buy foundations on the highstreet (other than from Bourjois) that would be as good as the high end ones. My new find is the Lumi Magique foundation by L’Oreal, and frankly, I am surprised I haven’t picked it up sooner as I have been using the Lumi Magique highlighting pen for ages! Continue reading
