This Weeks Firm Favourites

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week so far. I’ve been so busy with work, but am settling in and not feeling like the new girl anymore! I’ve had a great week, maybe not the most productive but sometimes it’s nice to relax at home and just reduce the stress. This post is all about the things I’ve been loving this week.

Suits

Netflix to the rescue again. I’m really loving ‘Suits’ at the moment. I’ve had a lot of unproductive evenings just eating and watching it in bed. This is not great for my waistline but it’s also heaven!

New Nails

I got my nails done again in the lovely Makeup Box in Naas. It’s great going somewhere with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The perfect way to kick off my weekend. I’ve decided not to get my gel nails done as it would be too difficult with the Invisalign, so I’m sticking with Shellac 🙂

New Hair Brush

I’m loving my new wooden brush by Kent. It smoothes hair naturally and the bristles massage my head too. I got it in Boots and it was €10.50 but the quality is worth it. My boyfriend thinks I’m slightly insane but a good hair brush makes all the difference.

Food

Remember my post last week about not being able to eat due to my Invisalign, well this week I’ve more than made up for it. I’ve seriously over done it on the carbs and chocolate. I need to get motivated again as I’m feeling so sluggish but I just keep reaching for the chocolate!

 

Getting used to my Invisalign

After two weeks I can finally close my mouth properly again. Yes it is a small victory but a victory all the same 😛 Excuse the picture, it’s after a long day in work.

My new set of aligners are being put in on Tuesday and I’m praying my little win is not short lived!

 Elie Saab at Paris Fashion Week

Last but certainly not least, I am in love with Elie Saab’s catwalk show at Paris Fashion Week. He is one of my favourite designers and I love everything about the looks he showcased during his ‘Way of the Woods’ show.

So the above pretty much sums up what has made me smile this week. I’m going to the Irish Beauty Show tomorrow too so I will of course keep you all updated on that also. Enjoy the rest of your weekend ❤

Until Next Time My Loves

Prime of your Life

Hey Guys,

I’ve been using a new primer lately and I have to say I’m loving it, so of course I shall share it with you guys. I am extremely fussy when it comes to primers, I find many products can be too thick. My foundation clings to the primer which ends up leaving my make-up streaky; obviously not a good look.  My fussiness has led me to become an advocate for investing in makeup and beauty products, even when they are expensive. I think quality far out weighs cost in terms of importance, however I do love a good bargain when I can find one!

That is why I am now loving Catrice’s Prime and Fine as it is more of balm as opposed to a creamy primer. I use a small bit over my cheeks, chin and forehead and leave for 2 minutes before applying any makeup. I have to admit I’ve noticed my makeup staying on much better throughout the day since I switched to this primer. I generally don’t have time or even the motivation to reapply my make-up during the day. This is unless I am going somewhere after work, in which case I will try to make myself look in some way decent, other than that I am far too lazy and stressed to be running to the bathroom to touch myself up.

I apply my make up around 7.00am each morning and when I don’t generally get home until 7.30 pm (yes I am like a zombie by then!) I have noticed my make up has remained in tact over the last week. This is no easy task considering on some occasions I have to brave the wind and the rain on my travels. It really is a great product for girls on the go!

The product is oil free which I love as it is more beneficial for my own skin type and reduces any shine (I can’t stand shine!) It didn’t leave my skin feeling too dry either which can sometimes be the case with oil free products. It is also a complete bargain at €4.00 so it is definitely worth a try ladies. I was pleasantly surprised.

Until next time My Loves
