The More Issues Than Vogue Tee

This might come across as  hypocritical that I blogged about fashion houses having that must have logo tee (here) and today I'm blogging about a quote that I'm simply obsessed with.

When I saw The Makeup Fairy (here) post about this tee on Facebook. I just had to find it for myself. It was a love at first sight moment and I MUST have it in my wardrobe no questions asked! I have informed my nearest and dearest about this lust sadly no one has acted and I would be surprised if they would. Simply I am obsessed. 

1, Here 2, Here 3, Here 4,Here

If I do manage to get my paws on the number one item of clothing on my wish list I will a post on different ways I style it!

Out of the four which one do you like most? I love no. 4!

LUSH - Brazened Honey face mask - Review

I have built up quite the face mask collection at this stage and have to say I have not found one that I would use over and over again and ignore the rest of the endless face masks that are  out there. 

For me Lush is the place to go to find something that will actually work. Yes the price points are a bit steep however you know what you are getting and you do see results. 

During my dissertation my skin took a bit of a turn as you would expect with copious amounts of sugar and living on two hours sleep. 

This was my rescue remedy for my skin. 

The mask is perfect for deep nourishment. It also tackles those pesky spots as honey has an antiseptic benefit. The mask can also help to exfoliate your skin. Once you have applied the mask and let it work its magic for 10 minuets your gently wash it off (in a circular motion if you want to use the masks exfoliating qualities  pat yours skin dry and wonder in amazement at how radiant your skin looks and feels.

You will find that the smell off the mask stays with you throughout the day. The sent is pleasant and in no way over powering. 

Have you ever used Lush Brazened Honey face mask before? What do you think of it? Did it work for you? 

Bright Light PR A/W 13 Press Day *

A couple of months back I was invited to the Bright Light PR Winter Press day (bit of a mouthful isn't it ;)) 

The event was a fantastic way to engage with three brands that I have never come across and to reengage with one that I was slightly familiar. As the event took place in the summer months it was very exciting to see the new A/W trends. 

The brands that I had the opportunity to drool over where: Olsen, Second Female, Lands' End & Simone Perele. Out of all four it's a draw between Second Female and Simone Perele. 

 It was an amazing day and great to see so many wonderful brands. I would like to thank Bright Lights PR for the opportunity to attend such a fab press day!

Dove Go Fresh - Review *

Dove has pretty much been a constant in my life. I have seen the brand transform over my lifetime and it really does have an amazing history (link)

I have always view Dove as a brand where you would find that bit more luxury and at that all important high street price. I love love my high end body washes however they are a once in a blue moon buy....when the blue moon is not out I turn to Dove to fill that need I have. 

I love a bit of luxury (who doesn't). I am a firm believer that your shower or bath time has to be an enjoyable experience. The Go Fresh range has all that you expect from Dove, a rich luxurious cream that will nourish your skin. 

The scent is a refreshing pleasure, making this shower cream perfect for your morning shower. Not only is the blue fig and orange blossom scent a pleasant way to start your morning the cream contains the 'Nutrium Moisture' technology.  This helps your skin deep down, it penetrates more layers than other products out there that claim to do the same. 

Have you used the Dove Go Fresh shower cream? What are your thoughts on it? 

Second Female - Jumper

I have to say Second Female is one of my favorite brands this season. When I saw the jumper in an Avoca store I just had to have it. That perfect wide collar in a beautiful burgundy and of course that fab quilt effect. The zips on the side are also a nice little bonus considering that zips are now going to be a big trend in fashion over the new while. 

However as perfect as the whole thing appeared to be after not even two wears my favorite jumper started to ball. Now after no less than ten wears its more ball than jumper. I really am disappointed  I adore the brand but it's not even that. I spent €80 on this jumper hopping for some longevity however now it's only fit for the bin. 

The jumper looks worn, old and frumpy! I am beyond disappointed and quite upset I only bought the jumper in September! Launch FREE Shipping & FREE RETURNS

Pearlys Teeth Brightening Bar at Harvey Nichols - Dundrum - Review *

Last week I was invited to try out a new Teeth Brightening Bar in Harvey Nichols. How could I refuse? 
The Pearlys is located at the end of the beauty floor and has a funky fresh bar, that suits this modern teeth brightening treatment. 
You can avail of two treatments at the bar. The Pearlys 20 minute Express Teeth-Whiten Treatment and Pearlys 40 minute Double Express Teeth-Whiten Treatment. However you can also get your hands on the Bespoke At-Home Treatment

But how does this whole thing work? Is it full of that nasty peroxide that ruins your teeth? 

1. You are asked to fill out a form, you will be asked to answer a few questions which will determine if you can avail of the treatment. 

2. During your consultation a Pearlys specialist will explain how the self-treatment works. You both agree on what shade your teeth are pre treatment (done with the help of a shade guide).

3.You will then be asked to ‘prep’ your teeth. This is done by brushing with the Pearlys Weekly Teeth-Brighten Powder this helps to remove any external staining. Your teeth will feel like you have just stepped out of the dentists office. 

4. After the ‘powder-prep’ you will be given a pre-filled self-treatment tray containing the Pearlys non-peroxide whitening gel. You then will pop this in your mouth.

5. You will wait 20 minutes where an LED light will be pointed at the tray. After 20 minutes you will be handed a bag to dispose of the tray and a glass of water to remove any access gel. 

6. You will then compare your new pearly whites on the shade guide and work out how many shades you went up. 

The gel is peroxide free, pain free and perfect for those who suffer from sensitivity (like myself). 
The gel works like so: 
"The unique tray has gel on the top and bottom and whitens not only the front of the teeth but in-between and behind the teeth too. The cold L.E.D. light then activates the whitening actions of the gel.

The power whitening lifts the staining from the teeth with a whitening gel that breaks down into oxygen bubbles and water and the oxygen bubbles penetrate in through the thousands of microscopic pores in the enamel of the teeth and literally oxygenates the tooth to lift out the staining. It is extremely effective and clients will see (on average) an 8-12 shade improvement with this part of the treatment."

If you rather the idea of using  this treatment in the comfort of your own home the option is there for you. it works like so: 

"Should the client choose a home-kit they will then be shown how to take a simple impression of their teeth, which is used by the Pearlys laboratory to fabricate trays for the home kit.  This is delivered to their door a few days after the spa appointment, to help maintain their white smile in the comfort of their own home."

My Experience:

I have never had any whitening treatment in my life so this was a whole new ball game. I didn't really know what to expect but was excited to see the results. 
I found the staff to be lovely and very understanding of how 20 min can feel like a lifetime where you are sitting there while the gel is working its magic! 
There was a difference of 8 shades after my treatment. The results look very natural which I was delighted with. I did find that my teeth where a bit sensitive after the treatment, they are very sensitive to being with so I was expecting some sensitivity. Overall I was delighted with my experience and hope to return at some point. 

What’s on the Whitening Menu...

Pearlys 20 minute Express Teeth-Whiten Treatment (usual price €97, offer price €85 for October)
Pearlys Express whitening treatment which consists of a 20 Minute whitening treatment to instantly give a brighter smile.

Pearlys 40 minute Double Express Teeth-Whiten Treatment (€155)
As above but with 2 separate whitening trays each used for 20 minutes.

Pearlys Professional Home-Kit (€125 in addition to an Express or €185 if purchased on its own)
This treatment provides exactly the same trays that many dentists provide but for a fraction of the price. It is VITAL that whitening trays are bespoke and made from impressions of the client's teeth.

Have you heard of Pearlys? Are you going to give it a go? What are your thoughts on the peroxide free gel?

YSL Forever Light Creator Serum - Review *

"The first Skintone Corrector Serum by Yves Saint Laurent, integrates the exclusive GlycanactifWT™ complex and helps correct the appearance of uneven skintone by acting on dark spots, uniformity, clarity and radiance. Instantly, skin looks more luminous, its texture refined. Over time, color imperfections - dark spots & redness - look visibly reduced, skintone recovers its clarity and evenness."

Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? To be honest when I was at the press day I was excited to try it, frankly I didn't expect to see any change. Any products that I used in the past that claim to have more than one benefit fell flat. 

I used the serum in the mornings just before applying my moisturiser. Frankly I didn't know what to expect, I was hoping to reduce the redness my skin has suffered over the years, but I didn't want to build my hopes up. After about three weeks of use I noticed a change. The redness around my chin had improved drastically. At that point I regretted not taking a before and after photo. 

I am very aware of the broke veins around my nose and chin so this was a VERY big deal! I haven't used the serum in a while as I have ran out however I hope to have this beautiful bottle back on my bathroom shelf in no time. I am glad to report that the results stayed since I stopped using the serum, meaning that the results are permanent. 

Even though YSL Forever Light Creator Serum really does work and is life changing as laser treatment is now a no no. It does have a hefty price tag 30ML €76.40 50ML €102.10. 

The range it's self spans across two other skin care products which help to boost the effect of the serum. 

I adore this serum and can't wait to get it back in my life! Have you used it, what are your thoughts? Have you heard about it? 

VIDEO: Haul & Update

It has been quite a while since I put together a YouTube video. I find sharing products that I have purchased through YouTube is easier than via the blog. If you want to click into the link I have the details of the products in the info section. 


I picked up this sample from a pile of samples that had been accumulated over the years. Frankly I didn't expect much from this. Firstly I had never heard of Biotherm it was more of a 'sure I will try it because I need a moisturiser' at the time thing. 

So off I lathered it on my skin and I was shocked! 

1. It absorbs quickly.
2. No overpowering smell
3. Nourishes your skin like you have no idea!
4. You will keep on stroking your skin in amazement at how soft it is
5. The BIG plus it's not sticky in the slightest. 

The price is not too bad either: €17.03 on the website for a 400ml bottle. That you can't really argue with. 

Have you ever used Biotherm before? What do you think of it?
