The ‘Carry-On’ Skincare Kit

      The ‘carry-on’ skincare kit Packing all the essentials for a trip can be a challenge enough on it’s own; packing all the essentials for a trip when you only have a carry-on bag is a whole new level of the packing game! Where the challenge (and the stress) really peaks is when it comes to packing the toiletries; everything must be under 100ml, fit in a clear zip-lock bag AND cater for your travel skincare needs which can be very different,…

8 Products You Should be Packing for a Sun Holiday

8 PRODUCTS YOU SHOULD BE PACKING FOR A SUN HOLIDAY Jetting off somewhere sunny this holiday season? Save yourself some valuable suitcase space with some multipurpose wonder products.   Packing is one of my least favourite pass times, I always love the idea of travelling right up until the time arrives for me to pack my suitcase. What will I wear? What if the weather changes? What if I end up going somewhere fancy? With so many worries about options I often end up over…

Escape to the Connemara Mountains with Dephi Resort

ESCAPE TO THE CONNEMARA MOUNTAINS Welcome to the west of Ireland; wild, beautiful and the perfect place to escape to relax and unwind.       It never ceases to surprise me how beautiful the Irish countryside really is; around every twist and turn there is something new to discover and as I recently discovered, in the west, the views will take your breath away.  Dephi Resort is located in the middle of the Connemara mountains, so isolated that if you didn’t know it was…

SUMMER IS CALLING How to get a Summer glow in time for holiday season!   Finally, after months of heavy coats, scarves and hats, the weather broke this past week in London to reveal blue skies, sunshine and temperatures in the high twenties!

Wonderful Wanders: 48 hours in Dublin

WONDERFUL WANDERS: 48 HOURS IN DUBLIN Let’s go on a little adventure with culture, nature and great food. When I tell people that I’m Irish, the first place the majority of (non-irish) people think of is Dublin. Having grown up in Tipperary myself, when I think of Dublin I think of Christmas shopping trips, and maybe Dublin airport; in other words, growing up Dublin wasn’t a place that I visited on a very regular basis.

My New Squeeze + Bobbi Brown On the Go

MEET MY NEW SQUEEZE Bobbi Brown has done it again, gone and created a beauty product that we will all fall in love with!

The Travel Beauty Kit

The Travel Beauty Kit What to pack to get a flawless beauty look on the move… PS it’s carry-on friendly. Travel. I love it. However, packing I hate, especially when it comes to packing my carry on or toiletries; worrying about how may millilitres my favourite cleanser is or whether or not I should wrap it in a plastic bag in case it explodes in my check-in bag sometimes gets a bit much for me.  Something that I have managed to master in the…
