Irish Blogger Secret Santa 2013

Back some time in November Aisling from Total Makeup Addict Blog announced on twitter that she was organising a Irish Blogger Secret Santa. I of course jumped at the chance to get involved (any excuse for more shopping). Can I just say before I go on Aisling did an amazing job at organising it all and thank you for letting me been part of it.

I was paired with Lisa from Pink Sugar Sparkles Blog who I sent a little box of presents to which I am told she loved so head over to her blog to see what I gave her.

I found out this evening on twitter that Eimear from Bargain Hunter Byrne Blog had me and she sent me some lovely little gifts from The Body Shop. I was delighted with my gifts especially the lip balm as with this weather my lips just keep drying out.

My gift unfortunatly was left in Dublin and I am now home in Wexford for Christmas and I had not taken photos of the gifts yet. So excuse the stock photo but I did not want to leave this post with no photos.

She gave me this cute little Snowman washball.

And this Lip Balm trio which includes a shea butter, nectarine and coconut flavours.

She also gave me a card which had my name on it but I never got a photo of it.

Thanks again to Eimear for my presents.

Parfois has landed in Dublin City!

Last October I wrote a post entitled Fall In Love With Parfois detailing my love of the shop and my small bag collection for them. Up until now you could only shop Parfois online in Ireland or if you were lucky enough to be heading through Terminal 1 of Dublin Airport you could shop there. So while Christmas shopping last week I literally did a little dance amongst the shoppers when I saw Parfois been constructed beside Wallis on Henry Street just a couple of doors up from the Jervis Centre.

A week later and it was opened! I wish I took a picture of inside so you could see all its beauty but I was too excited and common sense went out the window. I touched every bag walked around the shop twice and literally just savoured in the fact my favourite shop is now readily available to me.

I had to restrain myself from purchasing the whole shop and because I was still not finished Christmas shopping I could make no new bag purchase :-(. I did though purchase some new earrings which I fell in love with instantly.

These gorgeous blue grey toned drop earrings, which just scream chic to me and at €7.99 they were a total bargain.

* Since writing this post the boy and I had our mini Christmas due to me working all this week and heading home to the parents house for Christmas. He did very well with my hints and I am now an owner of a new Parfois bag which I will reveal after Christmas.
