The Irish Wedding Awards Winners 2018

Hello, this post is dedicated to the Winners of The Irish Wedding Awards. I went along to the awards ceremony held on the 28th January in the Crown Plaza Hotel. It was a fantastic night celebrating Irish wedding suppliers, from bridal boutiques, photographers, venues, cakes and everything in between. We were treated to entertainment from AcousticA a duo act that had the room rocking. They sang the Backstreet Boys so that was me sold (huge Fan). I would highly recommend them if you're searching for your wedding entertainment, their voices are amazing.  It was great to have the opportunity to attend and to get glammed up, now that is always a plus.

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 …

Wedding Dress Inspiration

I really had to stop myself  from showing hundreds of dresses, just because there are so many beautiful ones out there. Every one is as stunning as the last. Even though I have had my magical day, I still love looking at wedding dresses and if I could try them on for fun I so would. 
We are coming up to our 4 year anniversary on the 10th September. So if you see me in my wedding dress on instagram it's OK. I figure I payed enough for it, I may as well try it on every now and then. 
All the designers I have featured are available to buy in Ireland, maybe not the dresses I have chosen, but some of their collection will be available. I have featured some of the 2016 collection from Pronovias, its just fabulous. .   If your going wedding dress shopping, check out a post I did called "It's All About The Dress" for some tips.
As always direct links are under each image.

Ardgillan Castle Wedding Venue Feature

Hello all, I hope you enjoyed reading my first venue feature as I am really enjoying it. I have felt so welcomed by the venues that I have visited so far.  Please feel free to share and spread the word if this feature is of interest to any engaged couples you know. (These posts are not sponsored) and you can also follow my blog on Facebook  |  Instagram  |Twitter | Snapchat | Pinterest

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 …
