I am a finalist in the Lifestyle section of the Littlewoods Ireland V by Very Blog Awards!! Absolutely delighted and in great company too ❤️. #vbyverybloggies17
Me and Sophia had the pleasure of attending a lunch chat event hosted by Sudocrem and Maia Dunphy in the Drury Buildings with the main topic of conversation being 'Today's Mum' - a research report on the lives of Irish mothers today. It was such an enjoyable event, full of mums and babies and was so refreshing to hear everyone's experiences.
I might've shed a tear or two when i have seen the new Sudocrem ad, be warned!
The new Clarins Graphik Makeup Collection Autumn 2017 is on the blog. I have enjoyed using the Joli Rouge lipsticks the most, the formula is outstanding!
Currently trialling out this week the new @clarinsofficial autumn makeup collection and so far I'm in love with the lipsticks and lip liners. They just melt on the lips, comfortable and rich. If you want to try one thing, I would go for the lippies! 💄💋
Had an impromptu photoshoot in my kitchen to show you my new @zara jumper I got last weekend. It's the perfect 'on trend' knit: pearls ✅ flared sleeves ✅ grey ✅. And only €17.99, I couldn't leave it behind. I became so obsessed with pearls lately, it's all I'm drawn too. Oh and Stars ⭐️!

One of my favorite things in Sophia's room is this custom made poster from The Smiley Bunny. Daniella kindly customized a print with Sophia's date of birth and time to match her bedroom colors. If you are looking for a different kind of gift to get for kids or new parents, do check out her online shop. Such attention to detail, from the actual print to the delivering envelope, I highly recommend her!
Blogpost: The Daily Makeup Face
I'm finally getting to wear my last winter sales buys - I'm always SO last season! This is a shift dress from @zara that I paired with the usual @converse (I need to be comfortable to chase after Sophia!). It's actually very flattering on, when strong winds aren't blowing me away 😂. I can't wait to wear it again with tights and boots (and probably some Spanx).
I would actually buy this for my brows!
Had the pleasure of working with the fab Sinead from The Beautiful Truth on today's photoshoot! If anybody needs photos done for blogging or just family/fun, drop me a message x.
Luckily I was wise to take a photo of this outfit before it was murdered by beetroot juice 😂. Totally my fault, rookie mistake 🙈🤦🏼♀️. At least she drank it!

Sophia is clearing out her wardrobe to make room for bigger girl clothes! She has lots of brand new dresses from Zara and Next, 6-9 months or 9-12 that don't fit. Every single dress is €10, get in touch if you want more details x.
Happy Friday! I've treated myself to some delicious @bakedbychristina brownies for breakfast. If you haven't tried them yet, you are seriously missing out! Cake for breakfast is a real thing 😂

I had another very productive Sunday and did a makeover on my shed! See before and after photos, the paints ive used and everything else on the blog now!
I've taken a chance and ordered this lovely swan head from @aliexpress.official over a month ago for Sophia's room. And what a lucky chance it was, as it turned out to be beautiful! It only costs $17.99 and I whole heartedly recommend it. I want to add some more tule at the back and maybe get her some pearls. Also we are stuck for a name so suggestions appreciated! Soon on the blog I will have the sellers listed and more details.
There is 20% off extra discount on top all Sale stuff in River Island! Discount applied at checkout.

All I need are lattes and lipsticks. And chocolate. And Zara. And, and, and... 😂🤷♀️
I bought the @notecosmeticsireland BB Cream as soon as I spotted it in @meagherspharmacy in Ranelagh Village, after hearing such high praises from @lovelygirlybits. And it didn't dissapoint! I have shade 1, the color selection is not great and verging on the dark side but it the medium to full coverage certainly makes up for it! Semi matte, a beautiful finish and long lasting on the skin (granted i do use a marvelous @urbandecaycosmetics setting spray). I wish it had a higher SPF than
15 but again, I use a separate one from @biodermaie underneath. Best application i found to be with the fingers: it gently melts into the skin creating a gorgeous base.
New Fashion Blogpost: Mum and Toddler Outfits, what we wore this week! I am obviously using the term 'fashion' very loosely!
If only people would be kinder online, So funny and so true!
Good morning everyone! We had such a long lie in thanks to our merciful 19 months old boss so we are ready for a productive Sunday! No more treats from Monday and trying to go back to a gluten free diet to hopefully help my thyroid function, I'm determined to grow back my eyelashes. I lost them completely post partum and it's not even a vanity issue anymore, I'm sick of sore irritated eyes. If you know any remedies to help stimulate growth let me know!
This is epic!😂😂😂

Hang in there, it's Friday!!!
