obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 

CRINGE!!!

A few weeks ago just ater I made my shelves

Here we have my nail art Gems, stickers, fimo slices & various topcoats & nail care treatments.
The bottom shelve is currently holding my Models Own Nail Art pens, a buffer, my deoderant (good to know I wear it eh?) & my perfume (Black XS... Yummy!) but given that I'm having to double up on the upper shelves I doubt it will stay this empty for long!


So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I wanted (candycorn yellow is surprisingly hard to find at halloween). It's actually quite a good polish if you ignore the fact that it's fake.

A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga is an absolute star. 

Before, during, and I dare say after, A Star Is Born I have loved Gaga. There’s a narrative going about during their press junket that Bradley Cooper had to push hard to get film execs on board with casting Gaga as Ally in the latest adaption and, if true, that bugs me because having seen it I genuinely feel that there is no one else that could have played her. Ally’s character has clearly been moulded around her talents - as with Barbara we have abandoned the movie star goals focussing solely on music - and I would love to know exactly how much was changed or added after casting. Bradley Coopers’ Jackson Maine cuts more of a sympathetic character than we’ve seen in previous versions of A Star Is Born, right back to the original 1937 film which inspires some of the more selfless themes in the 2018 reboot, so much so that it makes you wonder who the film is really about. 


The women of A Star Is Born have always been iconic and Lady Gaga’s portrayal takes n…

Monday mane-tenance

You may roll your eyes at the, painfully, alliterative title but I was really proud of that when I thought it up at stupid o’clock last night. After close to a decade of blogging in some form or another it gets hard to come up with these things!

As you might have guessed we’re here today today to talk about my Monday night hair ritual. You’ve heard of Skincare Sunday, well this Monday Mane-tenance. Every week - pretty much - I give my hair a loving boost with some form of deep treatment. My current favourite combo - in an effort to try and keep my colour between hairdresser appointments - is the Clairol Colour Booster in copper and the infamous £1 Argan Oil hair mask available from Poundland. 

There are a number of colour boosters on the market at the minute. I had been toying with buying the Maria Nila luminous colour masques on the Sally’s website when I came across the Clairol version in store in Superdrug. Half the price and right in front of my face. Just how I like it. I’ve bee…

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!
This year marks the first year that they have invited bloggers to a press showing and I'm so glad they did. I got to meet Grainne Maher of Pluck & Devour fame and catch up with Mark & Caoimhe from Benefit Ireland who were lovely as always!
My favourite items are pictured below as well as the new Benefit Fine One One which is a nifty bit of kit I can't wait to properly try out!
