Calm by Ciara Moore: 5 reasons to get Calm.



When I was offered the chance to visit Calm Massage and Beauty in Randalstown, it came at exactly the right time. I was smack bang in the middle of a series of stressful and invasive hospital appointments and I needed some calm in my life. It sounds trite but it’s true. 

Honestly I’m so glad I went. Ciara herself is so lovely and I loved the atmosphere in the small two room salon, situated on Randalstown Main Street, just half an hour outside Belfast. Here are a few reasons to make the trip. 

Ciara herself
We chatted for quite a while after my appointment was finished and I loved how enthusiastic Ciara was about doing the best for her clients. Whether it was choosing products that she really believed in, supporting other female led businesses around Northern Ireland, training in services that could potentially be life changing - more on that later - She has great hands and a great heart too. 

Neal’s Yard
I’ve never had a facial using Neals Yard before and I came of the salon with a bit of a shopping list as I was hooked on the amazing scents. Using a mix of their ranges, including their Deliciously Ella range, she tailors the facial to your skin leaving it lovely and soft. And as it isn’t a cosmeceutical range there is no down time or recovery. 

The Floopiness. 
I’ve talked about Ciara as a person but let’s talk about those skills too! Apart from the fact that she carried out THE most delicate mascara removal I’ve ever witnessed “to take care of the skin” during the facial; she was also able to knock out the many stress knots I have during the massage. I walked out of the salon with that gorgeous loose feeling I like to call, Floopy. 

She cares for women
As we talked about the business and the services she offered, Ciara began talking about fertility treatments and how she really wanted to help women through what it a very difficult time. Ciara talks about her own experiences on her own blog and why she is passionate about offering the services. 

Calm Triple Treat
Featuring a deluxe facial and a full back, neck, and shoulder massage plus a manicure; priced at 99.00. The third part of the treat takes place in her fabulous custom manicure station which you can see below - as a Nail Technician I have so much station envy. Ciara has generously given me a number of 50.00 vouchers towards the Triple Treat for my readers, so if you would like to experience at more than 50% discount then give me a comment below or a message and I will send you a voucher - there are plenty still available so don't be shy!

Bonus Points! 
I mentioned that I was invited to Calm by the fabulous OhhSocial team, well they have a number of 'Buy One Get One' offers available on the app, I was treated to the Deluxe Duo which included the deluxe facial and a full back, neck, and shoulder massage but with the app you also get a discounted future service and a little bag of goodies to take home! Bliss!

Thankyou to Ciara and Ohh Social for this ohh so delightful treat!

Image therapy from Therapie Belfast

A few months ago I was offered a course of treatments of my choice from Therapie Clinic in Belfast. I initially wanted to go for their laser hair removal but I was contraindicated out of this choice - I’m hoping that now I’m off medications this is something I can revisit - so I went with a course of prescriptive facials using Image Skincare. 
Spoiler alert: I loved them. 

The course was three treatments over three months - slightly longer in my case thanks to my bonkers scheduleand their packed out books - and in that time I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my skin, a drop in pigmentation and redness, and a suppleness that I just haven’t received from other products or facials. In my first Therapie post I wrote about their Ormedic facial, an all natural service using botanical extracts; great for those who have never had a proper heavy duty facial before - like me - and those who don’t have huge problem areas but still need a bit of love. 
It’s important to note that …

Crazy Rich Asians

Based on the novel of the same name, Crazy Rich Asians has some crazy expectations to meet and you’d be forgiven for writing it off as a diversity quota flick. Here’s why you shouldn’t.  I was so excited to hear about the release of Crazy Rich Asians, finally I would be able to watch my favourite Netflix sub genre - Korean Romcoms - on the big screen and give myself a night off from the subtitles. Some might be thinking that this film was going to be full of ‘smack you in the face’ wokeness and weighted down by the pressure to perform well internationally due to its entire Asian cast. In reality Crazy Rich Asians is like all good romcoms… good! The romance is front and centre, the comedy is paced well, with with a delightful wink to the audience when needed, and the stereotypes are kept to a bare minimum even then only being used to subvert your expectations. Oh I do love a bit of subversion. In fact most of the familiarity in Crazy Rich Asians come from the genre rather than the cultur…

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…
