Embracing my inner country girl.

Hey ladies! Today's post is more of a lifestyle post than we're used so bare with me as I spend most of it with no makeup & frizzy hair. 

This weekend I went back home to Antrim for a reunion of sorts with my girlies from school. It's been about 9 months since we were all together so it was great to catch up. On Saturday a few of us went to the Irish Games Fair at Shane's Castle. It's basically comic-con for farmers, not my sort of thing but we'd heard there would be Archery & burgers so we were up for it. 
Once we were there we discovered a food & craft fair where I pretty much lusted after all the things. These bags and purses were too cute but I couldn't justify the spending as I'm still recovering from London. We did partake in quite a few free wine & cider samples, however, and came out quite giggly. 
We saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Delorean! 

And then we played a few games including Dodgems, Archery & "climb in the abandoned mud-stuck tractor" - that one was not an officially sanctioned game to be honest... 
Then on Saturday night we donned our glad rags and hit up our local bar. Nothing quite like reminiscing about the times you snuck in to the club when you were 16 eh? Those were the days!
I've had a lovely weekend and enjoyed being home & embracing my inner country girl but after cleaning the muck off my boots I am glad to be back on concrete ground and in the land of wifi. Someone pass me a mochachino!!

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

DIY fashion colour with BLEACH London

Im a bit naughty when it comes to my hair. I only get it cut roughly every 3 months and have a tendency to just let my colour fade until I can't take it anymore which, to be fair, is an improvement on my student days of cutting it myself twice a year and hoping for the best with harsh box dyes.  Praise the gods for the wonderful  Sharon  at  Paul Stafford Hairdressing  for converting me to the salon! What I love about her is her adventurousness with my colour and recently I've been rocking an amazing copper & pink combo but as with most all fashion colours it fades fast and hard and can be rather expensive to keep up.  But thanks to a combination of a £10 voucher with a Boots 3for2 offer on the new  BLEACH London  home hair care products what did I get? An awesome way to freshen up my colour without breaking the bank! So who are BLEACH? They're basically the new hip & trendy salon in London and are coming out with amazing on-trend looks such as pastel colours, dip d
