My Kind Of Dress Valentines Looks

Hello all, for this post, I am delighted to be collaborating with My Kind Of Dress an Irish company set up in 2015. They stock an array of labels such as Little Mistress, Paper Dolls, Missi, AdLib, AX Paris, Closet London, Red & Royal, Chi Chi with more being added weekly. I was kindly sent two dresses that I chose online from My Kind Of Dress. They have looks to suit every budget and occasion.

With Valentine's Day approaching you might be on the lookout for the perfect date night or weekend away dress. My Kind Of Dress will have you date night ready and I chose two dresses that will have you feeling and looking fabulous. 
The first dress I opted for was the Ruflle Bodycon dress from AX Paris, a classic LBD (Little Black Dress). I think every woman should have an LBD in their wardrobe. It is a wardrobe staple, I always feel extremely glam whenever I wear a black dress and I felt fantastic in this one.

I love the ruffle detail of the dress, it gives a lovely shape to the body and it can be styled up or down. I dressed with classic black and red heels, you add that pop of colour by changing up your shoes. If going all black balance it out by adding a coloured clutch/ bag. 
If you prefer to cover your arms or you wanted to go for a smarter look then team with a blazer. That's the beauty of black, you can add some drama or keep it classy. Size wise I am a 12 and it is true to size, the dress is fitted so if you want to go up a size then do.

For my second dress from My Kind Of Dress  I wanted to step away from the classic valentines red, I went for the Pink Lace Bodycon dress. A beautiful elegant lace flared fitted dress from Paper Dolls, it has a sweetheart neckline with a built-in slip and barely there straps, it also has sleeves for those who like to have the arms covered. It gives a lovely shape once on and size wise I went for the 12 and again it was true to size.

I also styled this dress with different clutches and heels to show how can add to the dress. To be honest this dress really doesn't need much added to it as it holds its own. It would make the perfect weekend getaway dress.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Ardgillan Castle Wedding Venue Feature

Hello all, I hope you enjoyed reading my first venue feature as I am really enjoying it. I have felt so welcomed by the venues that I have visited so far.  Please feel free to share and spread the word if this feature is of interest to any engaged couples you know. (These posts are not sponsored) and you can also follow my blog on Facebook  |  Instagram  |Twitter | Snapchat | Pinterest

On Thursday 2nd  June I went to visit venue number two, the breathtaking Ardgillan Castle. Located between Balbriggan & Skerries. If you have ever visited here you will understand what I mean. Everytime I go to Ardgillan I literally fall in love with it all over again. Whether I go for coffee in the tea rooms, bring my daughters to the  playground or just walk around the grounds. I adore it and Ardgillan was recently featured on Lovin Dublin as the best park in Dublin to visit, now that's pretty cool.

So onto the beautiful Castle, I met with Ann-Marie and Danielle and we chatted about the venue …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

Mac Soft and Gentle 

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
