Just a trim?

So here's the thing. For about 4 or 5 years now I've been determined to cultivate super long, super ginge "Mermaid hair". It's been a running joke amongst friends and is often commented on by Bathroom Strangers. Bless those compliment bearing Bathroom Strangers, the ultimate ego boost.

My hair stylist, the phenomenal Sharon from Paul Stafford, bless her every time I go in has had the challenge of trying to keep it as healthy as possible whilst living up to my demands of cutting only the bare minimum to my damaged ends.

Yeah... Not this time.  



This time I said "go for it" and boy did we! 

A 70s Shag cut with blonde through the back and ends so that when the mood takes me I can put the crazy colours I have stashed through it. Sharon informed me that in Stafford the Shag is known is "The Melter" due to the abstract nature of the layers and the constant need for the stylist to switch up their angles. Having been told for many years how much of a head melter I am myself, I think me and this cut shall be friends for a long while. 



Just a little different. 


This morning I'm still loving it. The social media response has been crazy and makes me think I should get my hair cut more often! 

I'm super grateful to Sharon for my cut and Cheryl for my colour. I can't recommend Stafford Hair enough! I'd say everyone should go there but that would only mean that they'd be too busy for me and all the many friends I have that already go. Check out their Instagram @WeAreStaffordHair and you'll understand just how fab they are. 

In the mean time we shall memorialise the Mermaid hair. Gone but not forgotten. 

RIP

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

IMATS London 2013 Haul featuring Nars, Crown Brush UK, OCC & more!

Hello Lovelies!! And how are we this fine day? I'll be honest with you I'm completely shattered but it's all been worth it as I had an amazing time at IMATS this weekend. I'll be posting some photos of the show itself shortly (I need to wait first of all to see which photos are chosen for the Irish News article Bexberry is writing - Sounds quite fancy doesn't it!) but before then I thought I'd show you the important stuff... My Haul!! As you may have seen from my Instagram I went a little brush crazy with a total of 10 brushes! First up and top of my shopping list was the Louise Young  foundation brush, Bex had picked it up last year and has raved about it ever since. And since learning that stipple brushes actually aggravate dry skin and cause it to flake (!!!) I was on the hunt for a new brush and this was it. Have to say 3 days in & I'm loving it. Already I notice a difference in the longevity of my foundation just from this one brush! Nex

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
