#GetYourShineOn With Micro Nail

So a few weeks ago I was invited to an event that I didn't know anything about. The invitation simple stated that it was all about a new innovative nail product, so I was uber intrigued, 
When I pottered along this last Wednesday I was super excited to see what was in store. The event was held in the amazing Residence club on Stephens Green, which I love more than anything. As soon as i walked in and saw all the beautiful Micro Nail boxes i knew i was in for an amazing event. Prior to this the only product I knew from the brand was the infamous Micro Pedi, which many people love and covet, so I though that if it was as good as that i would love it. 

I was lucky enough to be the only one at the 1.30 appointment and I was able to sit down with the lovely Shauna from Micro nail and the beautiful brand ambassador, the original Irish supermodel , Marie Staunton. I had an incredible chat about the product which of course led to some fabulous girly banter which I adored just as much. 

The Micro Nail is definitely an amazing product for all nail loving girls. Ever since I was a lil'one nail goodies were always on my list, before I even knew what eyeshadow was I sure as heck knew how to file and paint my nails, to what I though was perfection, so I have had my fair share of Christmas nail gift sets, and this is definitely one of my favourite nail tools to date! 

Now on to the star of this blog post, the MicroNail!! The Micro Nail is the newest innovative nail accessory that not only buffs and smooths your nails but it also shines your nails to perfection! the Smooth rollers rotate 1800 times per minute and smooth out your nails in 2 seconds flat (maximum recommended time the smoother should rotate on your nail) then the shine rollers are used to shine and create a natural and beautiful shine on your nails. 

The Micro Nail shine can last up to 2 weeks and helps keep your nail varnish on longer than normal and when your shine of the polish is dulled down, the shine roller can be used to bring back the beautiful shine and perfection to the nails. The MicroNail includes not only the batteries but also 2 Smooth and 2 Shine heads, while an additional set of 2 Smooth & Shine heads can be bough for €14.99, which is recommended after 2 months of use. 

This is definitely one of my picks for Christmas, and with the batteries included what better present to wake up to on Christmas day! 

The Micro Nail is available at Boots and Micro Nail Website for €49.95 , and it is definitely worth it!!

My Current Obsession - The T-Shirt Dress

At the moment I am going through a serious wardrobe and style over haul. The past few months I have caught myself falling for so many things but putting them back and declaring ‘Oh but its so not me’. That was until I declared why isn’t it for me?? Lately I’ve been buying up a storm of prints, dresses, jackets and everything in between to broaden my already bulging wardrobe into something more fun and unique.

Ill be doing a few posts over the coming weeks of my new fashion obsessions and sharing with you all the pieces I’ve already bought and the ones I'm dying to get my hands on .

At the moment I’ve been beyond obsessed with t-shirt dresses. Now I know that summer is unfortunately on the way out but I’ve found these to be the perfect autumn staple- and who knows lash on some tights and they would be perfect for winter. I’ve been pairing mine with longline jackets (another absolute obsession) and flip flops for a casual dressy feel while the sun is still shinning.

Here are my current must haves that I definitely think should be making their way into your wardrobe as well!!!

Perfect for day, night, lazy days or casual Friday in the office, I definitely think these should pop along into your own wardrobes,

Hope you’ve enjoyed my first instalment of ‘’My Current Obsession..’’

Don’t worry their will be many many more to come.

New to Benefit, OOTD and Yummy Burgers!!

So late last week (I know this post is a smudge late), myself and the beautiful Sian popped into the amazing Benefit boutique on South William Street for an amazing chat with the global brow guru Jarad Bailey who came all the way over from the US to tell us all about some amazing new brow treatments coming to benefit in the coming months.

(FYI this is a very picture heavy post so grab a tea and relax while you read!!!)

It was amazing to sit down with Jarad and have a chat about all things brow and some exciting new treatments that benefit will be offering, more on that later. Not only did we get to have an amazing brow chat but we also got to indulge in some amazing treatments our selves. Sian had her brows shaped and tinted while I opted for just a simple tint. Tinting is something I have wanted to get done for ages, and now a week and a bit on I can safely say I’m hooked, I will definitely be popping back for more tinting treatments. For only €15 its a seriously amazing price for the pleasure of waking up every day with perfect eyebrows, add a bore wax and have the 2 treatments for only €26! how could you say no!! Don’t forget Benefit have shaped more brows last year than any other company so they definitely know what they are doing!! 

 After our brow date Sian and myself popped out for a bit of food, Sian suggested Bunsen and I’m so glad she did. Bunsen is the newest go to for any burger lover in Dublin, and after hearing so much about it I was super excited to go and try it out for myself. Located on Wexford street, its a small little restaurant with an even smaller burger. Plain or cheese and with the option to go for a double burger with each, there is a set selection of topping that complement the burger and normal, skinny or sweet potato fries its an incredible restaurant for anyone who wants a no fuss burger that's all about the meat. Definitely a go to for any foodie in Dublin!! 


Blazer - Zara (Old) - Similar & Similar
Dress - Asos 
Shoes - Hollister 

(Coming straight from work doesn’t allow for the most fashionable outfits but I’d tried semi casual.) 

Now on to whats new for Benefit - Coming the beginning of November, Benefit will be introducing Bling Brow. Bling Brow is a fab concept of introducing a bit of fun into your normal getting ready routine. You can get them applied at Benefit for as little as €5 up too €20 depending on what you want. You can also buy your own Bling Brow kits for €26.50 which allow you to play around with the different styles benefit have created and also reuse them for as long as you want. 

In the Bling Brow Kit, the gems, which are made with Swarovski elements , are all pre glued so no need to try and apply any glue yourself but if you want to reuse them eyelash glue works a charm!! 

These are going to be so much fun over the Christmas season and definitely can add a bit of fun to any outfit and make up look!
