Taking Care of your hands | Roger & Gallet

If there is one brand I love more than any other for their exquisite smelling and exquisitely creamy products, it's got to be Roger & Gallet. Recently, a few new products landed here for me to try and one was so incredibly lovely that I've used it up already. Yup! Before I'd even blogged about it. THAT GOOD!

Mermaids Forever by Makeup Revolution | Review & Swatches

It's always a morning filled with excitement when a new eyeshadow palette arrives here. With each one I find myself inching closer and closer to getting around to switching up my own makeup. Neutrals are great and flicks are better but sometimes I do get the urge to sit and watch some kick ass makeup tutorials and get creative.

No better time than now! The Mermaids Forever Palette from Makeup Revolution has newly dropped and as usual, sees Makeup Revolution throw their hat into the ring in regards to a huge trend we're seeing cropping up... Everyone wants to be a mermaid, right?

Local Focus | Sara O'Neill

There is one thing about Ireland that will (and has) always drawn me back from wherever my younger travels had taken me. It's not enough for me to describe it as simply the scenery, even though our landscapes here are anything but simple. It's the magic of Ireland. Wherever you are on the island, you'll never be far from that magic. It sets roots in your heart and it grows with you. That magic, for me, stems from folklore and myths. It is known the world over that Ireland is steeped in magical tales of folklore and mythical stories of Druids and Celtics, Banshees and our faeries (there are still some here that cater their gardens for our winged friends).

One (frankly, amazing) Irish designer and illustrator, hailing from our stunning North Coast where the tides crash and ebb against the sandy shores, can only be described as a true interpreter of those folklore stories of old and she cleverly uses fashion to tell those stories...

Sara O'Neill has been on my radar for a while now, her illustrations and sketches are romantic and dreamy, perfect for engaging your imagination.

Today, I wanted to show you all just how amazing the result can be when you marry Irish folklore, myth and magic together with stunning silk prints.
