Help Getting to Sleep: Catching Elusive Zs After the Christmas Break!


So we did it, we managed to survive the first official working week back of 2019. Or did we? Hands up if you looked at the clock every hour on the hour, hands up if you found yourself scrolling Instagram at 4am, while sleep eluded you... Hands up if a bleary eyed google search brought you here.. Luckily, I got you, a good night's rest is just on the horizon with my 5 top tips on how to beat insomnia and have you sleeping again in no time at all.

Bluestone National Park Resort Wales - Review!


When we got the mail inviting us to Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales I don’t know who was more excited me or the kids! I’d considered booking Bluestone a few times but something always stopped me I think it’s mainly because we love to keep going and exploring further afield as we have done on many of our UK road trips. Five hundred acres of rolling hills and woodland nestled in the Pembrokeshire countryside, I knew the kids were going to love everything about it, and that was before I told them about the Blue Lagoon!

Rose Gold Hair from Garnier Olia - Unfiltered Pics & Review!


You'd have to be living under a very large rock not to notice we've gone WAY beyond a handful of hair colours. I can remember Aaron (who currently rocks a cobalt blue fauxhawk) mentioning that people with differently coloured hair always acknowledged each other in public with a nod or a wink - he says that doesn't happen as often now that coloured hair has gone mainstream, which is fair because what's more mainstream than your Mam turning rose gold?!

Tellybox Beauty Breakdown ft Clinique, Tarte, Hourglass, Urban Decay, Clarins & Laura Mercier!




Intro to Tellybox Beauty Breakdown - The Series: 

Yes, I've been talking about these beauty posts for months now, but, as these pictures taken in the Virgin Media car park before I go back to IRL work can attest, I'm a busy woman. The beauty side of this blog has suffered and Imma try to right that wrong. I've been lucky enough to be a panelist on Virgin Media's Elaine on for over two years now ( I KNOW!). If you're not Irish, think of us as Looser Women - I'm biased but we rock. All outspoken, opinionated, hilarious women, unafraid to stand up for themselves and others. Of late I'm on the tellybox an average of 3-4 days per month, during my lunch from my day job on a Homeless Team. Yes, really. 

Because I record on the fly, I get to studio with my makeup ready to go most days, other days the Virgin Media Makeup Gals help a sister out. Think of me as a Real Housewife of Fingal County. Because I already have a day in the office under my belt before I arrive, the products I use have to wear well, hold their own and look flawless on HG TV. In this series of posts 'Tellybox Beauty Breakdown' I'll show you exactly what I use, the great, the good and the Oh GOD save your money because, Lord knows, I'm not the only busy woman in the world. Helpful, right? 

I'll also include a link to the Elaine TV show in question, so that you'll get to see the actions shots, so to speak. Unfiltered, unfecked with, these links will show you the truth (And more often than not, me on a feminist rant on national television- FUN!) 

This week I used a brand new product from a Press drop, some holy grails and some old favourites. It was a good makeup day. Ready?!
