Incredible is the only word to describe the 2 day beauty spectacular, Sephoria.
Sephoria was a beauty lover’s dream - booths upon booths of exciting exclusive product reveals, masterclasses with top industry experts, samples galore, swag bags, Instagram moments and much more. The 2nd annual beauty event held in the historic Shrine in Downtown LA was like no other event where glitter & glamor were all the rage.
When I was home in Galway last month, my big sister planned the most amazing early surprise for me – a spa trip to Dromoland Castle in Co. Clare. I have always loved Dromoland castle as we used to take family holidays in a hotel right beside the castle from a young age. I’ve had afternoon tea & lunch at Dromoland Castle previously, however the spa was an EXTRA experience. Dromoland Castle is a 5 star luxury castle surrounded by 450 acres of golf course and the most stunning green rolling landscape for exploring.
In celebration of becoming a semi-finalist in the #sephorasquad search, I am writing a blog post to tell you all about the amazing things in Sephora stores that you may not know about. I work at the corporate headquarters of Sephora in San Francisco so know all of the amazing things Sephora offers instore. My role allows me to spend days in stores so I get to see first-hand all of the happiness & wow factors offered by Sephora.

There are top travel beauty products that I always pack for travelling & when going to sunny destinations. Here are my top travel beauty products & top travel beauty tips below.
Over the holidays, I was busy relaxing and trying out lots of new products. New products excite me so much and I LOVE nothing more than a night of pampering and treating myself to spa moments at home. Here are some of my favorites that I tried out throughout the last couple of weeks.
Rí Na Mara is a seaweed cosmetic company based in my beautiful home town of Galway, Ireland and it is a beauty company that I have loved for years. Rí Na Mara uses organic hand-harvested, renewable seaweed to create a wide variety of nutrient rich and luxurious products.
I launched my blog on Thanksgiving Day in 2017 so it has just been over a year of blogging. Firstly, I want to say such a huge thank you to YOU for following along and reading this. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without followers and readers so I am so grateful for you taking time out of your busy life to spend time on my website.
I wanted to write a quick update on using my personalized haircare by Prose. If you read my first blog post on Prose HERE earlier this year, I describe the customized haircare service in detail and talk through the process of ordering online.
Sephoria was a beauty lover’s dream come true, a Disneyland for makeup lovers and the most instagrammable show case of the best skincare, fragrance and makeup. Spread over three floors, this unforgettable event took place last weekend over 2 days in Downtown LA.
As many of you know, this year I was so lucky to model in and attend lots of the NYFW shows and parties. At NYFW, I met Iuliia, owner of The GraceNYC. Iuliia provides amazing nail services including the most elaborate and beautiful nail art. The best part about this service – Iuliia can come to you rather than you trekking across the city to get your nails done.
I have always dreamt of attending NYFW for as long as I can remember. I lived my dream of attending shows and after parties last week but I also got to do something absolutely incredible… model in a NYFW show!
This past week, I modeled in NYFW and attended many shows and after parties which was a dream come true. There was little time in between shows and parties to grab food or touch up my makeup so I had some favorite Laura Mercier products that I kept at the ready throughout the week.
For my birthday evening, I had the pleasure of spending glorious hours at Burke Williams day spa in San Francisco with two of my friends. Paradise, oasis and world-class are the perfect words for this new San Francisco find.
I took a little holiday from writing and updating my blog as I went on a 6 week tour between Dallas, Ireland and Madrid (blog posts to come on these wonderful places soon!). Since I returned to San Francisco a few weeks ago, I have been trying out some new products that brands have sent me and here are 5 of my favorites:
The cold weather seems to be lingering a little too long. As well as many liters of water a day, I have been increasing hydrating products in my beauty bag. Some are all time favorites and some are new finds.
I am a self-confessed product junkie. When I shop for skincare, makeup or any beauty products, I lose all sense of time and purpose. I have certain skincare products that I swear by and have been in my basket for some time.
In very exciting news, I became a brand ambassador in January 2017 for Umberto Giannini. Hair products have always been quite important in my beauty bag as my locks need some taming especially with the San Francisco wind!
