#irishbbloggersSS14 Big Reveal

 This is the second year that the wonderful Aisling from Total Makeup Addict has hosted the Irish Beauty Blogger Secret Santa and I have been very lucky to be part of both. Check out last years post here! 

This year my Secret Santa turned out to be the beautiful Nadine from The Parma Violet who I have had the pleasure of meeting this past year and has now become a great friend. She sent me a very cheery and Christmasy note with a little drawing of Christmas tree included. Here are the beautiful gifts she got me.

MUA makeup which I love, she got me the Hall of Fame eyeshadow palette which include the top 12 eyeshadows from the MUA range. It includes some beautiful nudes as well as a few dark shadows to bring you easily in to a night time look. She also got me MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer in the shade Reckless, it reminds me of my Lime Crime Red Velveteen I will be wearing this all over the festive period.

 She also got me Superdrug Tropical Peel-Off Mask which I was so tempted to use last night and then I remembered I had to take photos so its still in tack but I will be using it when I have my pamper bath on Christmas Eve. She also got me two festive Barry M polishes one in number 144 and other in 143 the both have glitter flecks with stars both will look great over a Christmas manicure.

She also got me some silver earrings from Penneys/Primark, I always lose earrings so extra ones are always great and these will go with any outfit.

She sent me this Ted baker set a body wash, body lotion and body scrub. All smell beautiful and will be part of my pampering bath routine.

I loved all my gifts from Nadine and could not be more happier. I love been apart of the Irish blogging community and Secret Santa and hope that Aisling continues it for years to come.

Hair Update - Raspberry Ombre

 I recently won a facebook competition over on Redhead Hair Design's Facebook page. I first became aware of the page after my friend Amy posted a glowing review up on facebook about the hairdresser Laura who is the face behind Redhead Hair Design. I checked out all her before and after pictures of various clients I was in awe of her work and talent. Her style of hairdressing was totally up my street
and the reviews on the page are all 5 star with everyone singing Laura's praises.

She posted up a facebook competition and I jumped at the chance as I knew in the run up to Christmas with presents Christmas parties and travelling getting my hair done would be last on the list. I was delighted to be announced the winner and was eager to get in her chair. I booked in for Sunday 14th of December (yes a Sunday!).

I can get a bit nervous about going hairdressers, not about getting my hair done but actually been there. As I moved around alot I have never had a regular hairdresser and I find they can be a bit overpowering lots of women chatting laughing at top their voice. But when I ventured into Redhead Hair Design I was made feel very relaxed all the girls were very welcoming and put me straight at ease. Laura herself is very friendly and chatty and really listens to what you want as well as been able to tell you what would suit you.

My hair turned out even better then I ever expected, and I could not be happier with it. Not only did I come out with a gorgeous cut and color but an amazing curly blowdry that lasted me three days, which is amazing as past curly blowdrys have just fallen out of my hair in 6 hours.

Laura's prices are the best around and so girls if your looking for a new hairdresser and over the north side of the city then Redhead Hair Design is the place for you. Just so you know Laura books up fast so booking early is advisable to avoid disappointment.
Redhead Hair Design is located in Finglas village upstairs with Apfashion nails beside Permenant tsb.
