My Go To Hair Must Haves

If you know me personally than you know I am beyond obsessed with my hair. I've been unbelievably blessed in that I don't ever have to do much in relation to styling for it to stay in place but I do however have an array of products that I use to ensure it all stays in place and isn't a frizzy mess. I've been buying so many hair products lately, some I haven't really fallen head over heels in love with but I have been using these 3 every time I wash my hair and definitely think I should share them with you.

These are a mixture of Boots and Space NK which I know can be a bit pricy but trust me they are worth it.

Toni and Guy Prep is an amazing frizz controlling leave in conditioner that I use the days I don't use my Living Proof Primer. It is a pre brow drying cream that controls all frizz and allows you have perfectly sleek hair even in horrible humidity. This is an incredible product for less than 10 euro. Next time in boots you need to pick this up and give it a whirl . 

I came across this baby when I first popped into the new Space Nk store on Grafton Street. I was very very intrigued by the concept of a hair primer and I had never heard of Living Proof either so I wanted to try it out. I have since learned Living Proof is actual a brand co owned by the hair goddess that is Jennifer Aniston. The idea behind the hair primer is to coat the hair and allow all dirt and grease to simply fall off while holding in your style longer than normal. I apply this when I want to keep my blow dry perfected and want a little while longer between washes. I can honestly reach day 3 post wash and only then is it mildly greasy, its an amazing product that I am recommending to everyone.

I picked this up recently in Space Nk purely out of curiosity, how can a product cut down drying time?? I was very very sceptical but trust me it is seriously incredible, and  WORKS!!!  
Spray it liberally all over the hair and go hair dryer crazy and you will be bone dry in half the time it normally takes. 

I've blogged about this baby before, and then in a million favourite posts since. Its a pre blow dry thickening spray that truly boosts the hair and keeps it completely bouncy and fun. No flat blow drys with this at all. It is the must have for a curly blow dry for either day or night. 

These are my must haves and would recommend them all to you.

Parfois - August New Arrivals

Hi Lovelies, 

Apologies for the long break from blogging, if you know me personally than you would already know I recently lost someone extremely close to me, so I haven't really been up to blogging all to much, and may not be for the next few days so please excuse the next few product heavy blog posts while I get myself back in the blogging mood. Thank you to all who have reached out to me over the last few days, you are all beyond incredible and I love you all so much. 

Now over with the depressing intro and on to a more upbeat blog post all about Parfois. If you don't know Parfois is an incredible high street and online accessory store. Parfois originated in Portugal in the early 90's and in the last few years hit the Dublin shores. I have popped in many times and each time coming out with a 'few' goodies. 

I love accessories, but hate to pay huge price tags because I always buy in bulk, so Parfois is the best way to stay on trend without breaking the bank. Not only are the prices incredible but also the quality of the products is outstanding, and always on trend. 

Below is a collection of items from the newest additions to Parfois this August. 




I absolutely adore this collection but definitely have  a few stand out pieces. At the moment I am serious coveting the fab beige fedora , Large silver statement necklace, feather ear cuff and of course the fab green flap bag. I think they are seriously incredible pieces for this coming season and totally versatile with a variety of different outfits. 

What are your favourites from this collection??

Bank Holiday Outfit of the Night

Bank holidays are hands down my favourite holidays. I am one of those people that thinks there should be a 3 day weekend and that's why a bank holiday is the perfect break throughout the year.
I love the novelty of heading out on a Sunday, so I saved myself this weekend and was ready to go out and enjoy a few to many wines with my amazing friends. Myself and the boy started of the night in one of our favourite spots. Il Panorama in Howth is an amazing Australian/ Italian wine bar that has an incredible array of Australian and Italian wines , as well as beautiful handmade pizzas and ham and cheese boards, all of which we indulged in last night.

The wine was definitely needed after spending the morning, and a lot of my bank account, in Kildare Village outlet. I also needed a reason to wear some of my new purchases. 

The perk about Il Panaroma is that you have the option to eat both outside and inside, and with what I think is a capacity of around 20 people inside you get to chat to everyone who works there and always make new friends which is always fun. 

My Outfit -

Jacket - Zara (Similar)
Top - All Saints (Similar)
Leggings- Only (Similar)
Shoes - Pennys (Similar)
Bag- Whistles 

After a bit to much wine we pottered off with a few friends to drink more and enjoy the novelty of a bank holiday weekend. 

Sadly I'm regretting it yesterday but it was definitely worth it
