My Week On Instagram 

It has been quite a busy week for me on Instagram between new beauty shots, jewellery reviews and the odd selfie, I have found myself posting a lot more. I’m terrible for going through phases of not having much activity to spending every second posting. I find for me, it depends on what is going on in my life. There are times when I need to take a break to focus on the real world.

My Week On Instagram

Happy Friday! It has been a while since I last featured an Instagram post so I’ve featured some shots from a few week’s ago. It has been a busy week with events and I’m looking forward to relaxing this weekend. On Wednesday evening I attended an intimate skincare gathering in the beautiful Mal Maison Hotel. I will be featuring the brand here on my blog in a few week’s so stay tuned. I’m so excited to try out their products!

My Week On Instagram

There is a very Autumnal theme in this week’s Instagram post. I’ve been busy shooting some fresh outfits for all of you, I’ve even went on a little adventure and shot an OOTD on a very beautiful beach (you can read it here). Over the past week, I’ve had a few new beauty products to try and two in particular that I’ve been loving is the L’Oreal matte foundation and the Clarins lip oil. The foundation is marvelously matte and such a lightweight feel for an everyday look. The price is obviously appealing (£7.99 in Superdrug) and the lasting power is pretty impressive, a small touch up to my nose and T – zone is all that is needed.

I’ve mentioned on my Instagram that I’ve been testing out the Clarins lip oil and I’m really impressed. The honey shade is so hydrating on the lips and I hope that it helps combat my dryness during Winter. I put a balm on every day and night and sometimes they can still feel that little bit dry. Here’s hoping!

My Week On Instagram 

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Well it certainly is for me as I’m enjoying some much needed time off work thanks to a little holiday I like to call, Halloween. You all know just how much I love this time of year so I’m going to indulge in watching Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic one too many times. I’m really looking forward to some time off as it gives me the chance to catch up on the blog and concentrate on creating lots of posts for you to enjoy. You all know from the title of this feature that it involves my favourite post and my favourite app, Instagram.

I’ve been so busy the past few week’s, I’ve had some events on down in Dublin (you can read them here and here) and I’ve been focusing on those. I’m really enjoying getting back into the swing of being in ‘front of camera’.. I hope you’re liking the OOTD features too. This week I’m planning on shooting some more personal style looks for all of you.

Tonight I’m off to a private screening of the new James Bond film, Spectre. I can’t wait to see the latest instalment over some popcorn and champagne. Hope you all have a great week.

Summer lips with Clarins

I think one of the most important beauty essentials is taking good care of your lips. Not only for kissing (you know it’s true) but I always think that they are the first thing people look at. When your face to face with people they will concentrate on your lips and it’s vitally important that you keep them moist. Cracked lips are not a good look for anyone! Lip balms are a required process on a daily basis, but they don’t have to be the regular clear colour. Clarins have a selection of beautifully scented, magnificently moist and delightfully delicious Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors to play with this Summer. (Can we take a moment to appreciate my alliteration! Haha)

I have to admit, the application of applying a gloss type product makes me really nervous. I hate the stick applicators as they hurt my lips and just leave it feeling messy in my opinion. Another reason why I’m enjoying using these perfectors is the fluffy soft top head. It helps to smooth on the gel easily but holds onto any extra product without overloading your lips.

It’s not your traditional lip balm formula but it is more of a gel texture. I’ve been wearing each of these shades for a few week’s now and they are so handy for adding a little colour to your daytime look or for perfecting that perfect natural glossy lip on a night out. The tint is strong enough to be noticed but soft enough to wear as a lip treatment. It is quite a thick formula but I personally prefer that kind of product. They smell and taste absolutely delicious! I could spend my days eating them more so than wearing them! Haha

If you’re looking for a soft and subtle sunkissed look a tinted lip perfector is definitely the way forward. Do you lovelies have any recommendations for summer lip products? I’d love to hear your favourites.
