Emma's Eco Soy Candles Review

I am an absolute divil for candles so when I came home after a stressful day to find this gorgeous package of goodies waiting for me, it is safe to say I was over the moon.
I had heard about Emma's eco-soy candles via Twitter and other bloggers such as All the buzz had featured them on their blogs previously so I was delighted to test them out.
The beauty behind these candles is that they are all made of completely natural ingredients such as essential oils and soy wax, none of your typical synthetic nasties. This means that they won't cause an artificial overpowering smell and the headaches that can go along with too-sweet scents.
I received a Neroli fusion wax melt which I have burning here beside me in my makeshift oil burner aka a little fondue pot. I adore this scent it is so calming and relaxing.
"A blend of light and precious Neroli blossom and sweet orange oil with a touch of musky lavender: soothing, floral and calming."
I couldn't believe it when I checked the website, the wax melt is retailing at only €4.95, what a fantastic price! There is also free shipping to Ireland. Score!
 I also received a Lemon grass 20 hour tin candle. This scent is very citrusy and will energise and awaken you.  It retails at €9.95 and provides you with 20 hours of lemongrass scent. You can purchase Emma's eco soy candles at or she also visits various craft/trade fairs so you can find her at one of these:

Review: Bellamianta Self Tanning Gradual Moisturiser

Ireland is apparently the self tan capital of the world. It comes as no surprise that brands are continually popping up with their offerings to us pale skinned gals; however Bellamianta was an Irish owned tanning brand that I had yet to try. Partly because of its accessibility - I have yet to find a definitive stockist list - and also because we had been bombarded with another Irish owned hot pink bottled product for sometime.

After being invited to Bellamianta's Summer party in Number Twenty Two for the launch of three of their new products to include their self tanning gradual moisturiser I couldn't wait to try it!

 I had spoken to the gorgeous Linda one half of Bellamianta's power duo and she had told me that it was the gradual moisturiser she had on. Now, she was wearing a stunning white jumpsuit and on naturally pale Irish skin you would be forgiven for thinking layers and layers of your darkest tan would be required to wear white - but no, all she had on was the gra…

10 "Nice Tops" to Wear with Jeans on a Night Out

Ask an Irish woman what she is wearing on 90% of her nights out (unless its a special occasion) and you will probably hear the words, "jeans and a nice top." The sad fact is, it is almost entirely impossible to find said nice top for a night out.

Automatically crop tops and bodysuits are discounted for most of us because A) lets be honest unless I am wearing a high waist skirt there is no way in hell I am going to try pull off a crop top and B) because I fucking hate bodysuits. They ride up in places that no clothing should go and are a nightmare to try close again after the inevitable dash to the loo. So that limits our nice tops to drought level since every bloody nice top on the market seems to be either a bodysuit or a crop top at the moment!

I decided to take matters into my own hands and search through a couple of sites to find that elusive nice top... Let me know what you think.

What do I need in a Makeup Artist Starter Kit?

What is in a MUA's starter kit? Brace yourself for an extremely long blog post!  I love reading posts on what makeup artists have in their kit and since I am an MUA in the making, I know exactly what is necessary in a starter kit.
Keep in mind this is a kit that you will be using to do others makeup, not necessarily just items that suit you will be in it. This will be a run down on what is required in a basic kit, and you can build on that with more recognised brands when you get more established. I will cover the absolute must haves: Skincare & Hygiene Storage: What are you going to put your makeup in Brushes Disposables & Tools Then the fun part: Makeup! Skincare & Hygiene Most people you will work on will have no makeup on but if they come to you with a full face you do not want to be going any where near them with wet wipes! Wipes dry out the skin, and as some people have highly sensitive skin it can also cause an allergic reaction. You will need the following in your kit: C…
