Did You Forget Something?

Hello all, I hope your January is going well so far  and you're settling back into the routine after Christmas. Before I go into this post, I just want to share my other social media sites with you, so that you can follow me on FacebookInstagramTwitter Pinterest and my Snapchat user is maryroche2. As a thank you I will be running a competition on my instagram in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out. When I reach 500 likes on my Facebook page, I will  also run a comp there. So please come and say hi.xx

Think about this, have you ever gone to a wedding and after dinner all you want to do is take off your heels and wear something more comfortable so you can dance the night away or have you only wished that you had of brought the hair clips and hairspray that you left at home...I know I have for sure, so do not let your guests go through these traumas at your wedding. Supply a simple wedding basket for your guests in the toilet, trust me it will be the best extra that you give your guests and it is so practical.

All you need is a simple basket like these ones (below) or a pretty storage box that you could pick up in the likes of  Penneys, Argos, Tk Maxx, Dunnes or the €1.50 shop. Of course you can make them look pretty by adding ribbon or inserting a nice towel or tissue paper in the basket and placing the items on top.

We had these baskets at our wedding in Roganstown and they were placed in both the ladies and gents toilets. This ensured that everyone could access them very easily. Most weddings venus have separate bathrooms for weddings, so you do not need to worry about random people taking stuff from the baskets. When you have your baskets ready leave them with your venue a few days before your Wedding. The wedding team will have them in the toilets for you, so you do not need to worry about it then

Happy wedding planning. Any comments or questions please leave them below.

So what do you put in these baskets? Below is an example of what you could add in.  It's so easy to pick most of these items up in Penneys so it will not cost a fortune.


Hair Clips
Flip flops  (in various sizes and the best thing to have in the basket )
Perfume or body spray
Stationery Towels/ Tampons
Pins (incase one of your guests has an outfit malfunction)
Baby Wipes
Needle and thread
Nail Varnish (in a neutral colour)
Tanning gel and some disposable gloves (cocoa Brown Tanning Gel)

Leave the basket on the side of the dancefloor if you like

If you are getting married abroad you could add on some sunscreen and anti bite spray and perhaps some blankets for the evening.

Here are some more basket looks:

After struggling with melasma under my eyes from birth control and sun exposure I tried many different products and none even seemed to make any difference. Within a week and a half of use lazma has reduced the darkness by probably 75%. Use sparingly and follow instructions, more isn't better with this product. A small amount does the trick."

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
