Happy Birthday to Me!!!!


So I think it is fair to say the world and it's mother knows it was my birthday last week :) Yep I'm now the big 27 and not feeling a day over 21. I think most of that is down to the fact I am on a huge adventure lately having just moved to Dublin, starting this blog and really getting out there in terms of my fashion and my makeup lately. It's a really good feeling and I'm starting to embrace new trends and fashions I would have been to nervous to try before. Who knows it could be a pre mid-life crisis for all I know but I'm happy so that's all that matters!

My birthday started off fab with a beautiful surprise pressie in work from my good friend Elaine. We were both attending training in DCU last Thursday and Friday and when she arrived in on Thursday, she gave me the beautiful Benefit Skincare Set as a birthday present. I was so excited as I had seen this product all around Christmas and really wanted to see what it was like so now I can. It was a wonderful treat and so kind of Elaine :)

I hadn't been home to Waterford since Christmas time so decided there was to be a big plan of action for the weekend. I had been linking in with Davina in Carbon Beauty and we had arranged to do a facial for me using my fave cleanse off mitt. I have a full post written on this just posted so be sure to check it out, Davina is going to be running a new comp for your chance to win a facial with a cleanse off mitt.

I was having a little trouble with my skin and brows lately so popped up to Louise in Lulu Belle to get them sorted. I have been trying to get the full HD look but I felt they had lost their shape a little, I was right! I am pretty much , back to the start of growing them in again but Louise was brilliant, she put the basic HD shape back onto them and I will be back to her in 5-6 weeks so check out the shape again. It's great to have them someway sorted again. We all know how much I love having my defined brow especially when wearing dramatic eye makeup so we will get there again :) Lulu Belle is currently one of very few HD Brow trained salons in Waterford so if you want the 'real deal' give them a shout. Lulu Belle have an amazing Facebook competition running at the moment so be sure to check out the FB page and get entering. Secretly I am hoping to win the makeup application, my friend Elaine has been to Louise and the girls a number of times for night time looks and she always looks fantastic :)

I had also been considering changing my hair colour so off I went to Michelle and Tasha in The Salon and the results are amazing. I had been contemplating changing my hair colour but was really unsure as to what I even wanted. I had been on Google looking up different colours and different styles but still couldn't make my mind up. I had emailed Michelle a picture of what I thought I wanted, I had also sent Tasha loads of images and we were stuck between copper, red and blonde... complicated I know!! Anyway.... I arrived to The Salon a little late with my bestie Cli in tow and as I sat waiting, a girl had a beautiful red put into her hair, it looked so healthy, shiny and the colour was so fab so that's what I went for! I am in love with my new hair. Michelle styled it higher than I have ever had it before, it looked beautiful, so much volume, really healthy and I received loads of comments on it. There was great chat in the salon, brilliant service and fantastic value.

All in all Saturday was a completely jam packed day full of beauty and rounded off with an amazing night  with my girls. It just shows how well your friends know you when they treat you to new makeup toys. As I have been quite ill the last few days, my skin has been given a break and I have had no makeup on. I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful Mememe Nail and Lipstick Set, The Barry M smokey palette and Kim K Palette. I am over the moon and cannot wait to start reviewing these products.

I am off to London today and as a fab gift, my parents have given me plenty of spends for makeup so I shall post all what I bought on Monday (or Tuesday) if I'm too tired and will start products reviews soon 2.
