Luxury in Lurgan - the hidden gem that is Glenmore Manor




 What do you say when you get the chance for a sleepover with your FABB friends and the opportunity to relax after a long week in the Jucuzzi? Well you say "Absolutely!" and then pack half the house. Just in case. 


That's precisely what I did when myself and a few other Northern Irish FABB girls, Rosanna of Silver Brogues, Megan-Cáitlín of VENT-Threads, Ruth of Welcome to Willowlane and Carolyn of Forever Scarletwere offered the opportunity to try out Glenmore Manor in Lurgan. It's been over a year since our last blog sleepover and it's been a year too long! Now lets be honest with ourselves here you don't instantly think "glamour" when you think of Lurgan but you are instantly put at ease as you arrive. The house, tucked in just off the main road minutes from the train station, is surrounded by huge tree lines making it feel secluded and cosy. The lights emanating from the inside were warm & inviting. We couldn't wait to get in and make ourselves at home. 


This is not a B&B. Glenmore Manor is a traditionally decorated 18th Century piece of history and there are hints to it's past everywhere. When you go to Glenmore you have the whole house (Eddie the Cat included) to yourselves and it's yours for your stay, a luxurious home away from home with Owners Pat & Eileen nearby should you need anything. After a delicious Indian feast they put on for us we spent the evening nosying round the house, checking out the antiques, drinking wine, swapping stories, and spending probably way too much time in the Hot Tub. It was pretty perfect as fridays go.

On Saturday before we returned to reality, we burnt ourselves some breakfast on the range and wandered the grounds for an impromptu Blogger photo shoot. As you do! We then said our goodbyes to Glenmore and headed home via a flat car battery for myself & Megan! 
















I really enjoyed our stay at Glenmore. Its perfect for girly weekends and family gatherings. You could even have the country house wedding you've always dreamed of and it's only 30 minutes outside of Belfast!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…
