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 


Baby Wipes
Baby Wipes
Shoe buffer

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

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 …

On Thursday 2nd  June I went to visit venue number two, the breathtaking Ardgillan Castle. Located between Balbriggan & Skerries. If you have ever visited here you will understand what I mean. Everytime I go to Ardgillan I literally fall in love with it all over again. Whether I go for coffee in the tea rooms, bring my daughters to the  playground or just walk around the grounds. I adore it and Ardgillan was recently featured on Lovin Dublin as the best park in Dublin to visit, now that's pretty cool.

So onto the beautiful Castle, I met with Ann-Marie and Danielle and we chatted about the venue …
