Reflexology at Bella and Me Maynooth


You always know that a treatment is good, when you wake yourself up with your own snoring!! That is exactly what happened to me when I went for reflexology in Bella and Me Beauty salon Maynooth. Thankfully, I was only asleep for a handful of minutes because I really was quite blown away with the reflexology treatment. […]

Babyliss Heated Smoothing brush first impressions


When it comes to hair straightening it is a long way from an iron and a towel we have come! I remember the very first time I saw a hair straighteners. I couldn’t understand what my friend was doing! When she told me she was straightening her hair, I  was so confused and asked “why […]

Sometimes we need to be told things we don’t want to hear


Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM Are you the person who wants the results but are not prepared to do the work? Perhaps you have a friend or family member who talks about getting in shape but spends all their time living the good life. I mentioned last week the ‘put it off’ brigade. I should know, I […]

The first time parent starter kit


Knowing what to buy for a new baby is an absolute minefield. It constantly seems that you’re chasing your tail and missing out on an “essential”. Everyone has an opinion on what you need and what you can and can’t live without. Sometimes it seems unless you have the right highchair, stylish nursery set or […]

Is your weekend ruining your diet?


Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM You may have noticed my absence from the blog last weekend! Maybe you didn’t. So why no blog post Noel? I am not going to lie, I was on a stag and it destroyed me, for a few days at least. Not just physically but also my thoughts and my actions. Many of […]

Victoria Beckham makeup x Estee Lauder at The Loop


If you follow my snapchat, @thebeauttruth, you will have seen my pure and utter joy when these beauties dropped through my letter box from The Loop Duty free. I had been eagerly awaiting the release of this collection. With Beckham’s clothing line being not only out of my price range but out of my waist range […]

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick


Ok, I know what you’re all thinking. Here she goes again, with another liquid lipstick. Over the past 18 months or so, there just seems to be one liquid lipstick release after another and for the most part, people are getting tired of the never ending launches. However, I had to tell you about the […]

Exercise, diet and a million excuses


Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM It’s 2.25pm on Sunday and I am only sitting down to write tonight’s blog post that is due to go live this evening. I usually write these posts on a Friday morning, so why am I late? This week I had a mental week. It was mental in a good way, […]

Hit, Miss or Maybe : Concealers


As someone who has quite dark circles, I am incredibly hard and picky on the concealers I use. My concealer needs to not only cover my dark circles, but they must be comfortable, long wearing and above all they must not settle in my fine lines! Often with a concealer you can get a feel […]

The Secret to achieving your health and fitness goals


Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM As I write this post it is Thursday afternoon and I am currently sitting on a flight from Dublin to London. Earlier today, I got quite emotional over a message that I received from one of my clients and I felt compelled to share this message with you. I […]

Blank Canvas Master series palette


Last year saw the release of the Blank Canvas Master series palette and if I am to be completely honest, although everyone was raving about this palette, I personally didn’t hold out much hope for it, as I didn’t love the Pippa palette the way everyone else did. Yet every so often a product comes […]

Could this be a reason why you’ve stopped losing weight?

Guest Contributor: Noel Flynn from ABC GYM Well guys are you keeping it simple? Are you implementing things you already know? Have you blamed anyone else for your health or fitness results this week?  Perhaps you have blamed your circumstances. We often find ourselves blaming other people from preventing us from completing our health and fitness goals during […]

New Autumn releases from Mac


The Autumn is by far my favourite time of the year. As a teacher, I see September as the start of a new year, rather than January. For me, September is all about fresh starts, new clothes and of course the Autumn beauty releases. At this time of year I am ready to leave behind […]
