I was kindly gifted some of the b.tan products and I have been trying them out. Although the products were gifted to me all opinions are my own.  Let’s get started with the products, I was sent the following products  from the range:

"it’s love a daily moisturiser that gives you a glow"
"sweet sunset vibes"  a light gradual tan

"cosmic candy glow" a medium gradual tan  

"ain’t nobody got time for that" 9 minute tan

The bottles are a generous size at 200ml and the price point is great, with products starting at €10.00. I love that each product has its own unique name and message.

The b.tan instructors to get tanning:

Get naked or at least naked enough to tan your super-hot bod!

Make sure your skin is clean, exfoliated and dry apply with our mitt!

It will make you feel special a little bit sexy and not to mention glowing! (Literally how I feel after tanning)     

With the amazing branding and super fab instructions when it comes it down to the nitty gritty of using the products, I know you are asking are they worth it? I can tell you that yes they are!!  My advice when it comes to tanning products is finding one that suits your skin type, this is key. When it comes to tan colour, my preference is a sun kissed golden glow.  

ain’t nobody got time for that 9 minute tan  €14.99  

This tan develops in 9 minutes, you let it develop rinse for 45 seconds under luke warm water and you are good to go. If you want it darker leave for longer, I left it on longer for over 5 hours as I was in Mammy mode so I had a few bits to do. It is mousse tan and the colour is a silvery grey. 
I found it applied well to my skin and it developed nicely over those hours and when I rinsed it off I was left with a lovely golden glow. I was very happy with the wear off also as it faded gradually and lasted through showers. I then exfoliated to remove the last remaining bits. There was no cracking or scaly bits as it faded off, which I was delighted with, nothing worse than scaly looking tan as it wears off.

cosmic candy glow a medium gradual tan  €14.99

This a gradual medium tan, application wise it is a clear mousse so there is no colour guide when applying. If you are new to tanning I would advise getting used to applying before you try this. I left this on overnight and let it develop, the result was a golden glow similar to ain’t nobody got time for that 9 minute tan.  I rinsed it off and again the developed colour was fab and it did not go down the drain which can happen with fake tans. There was no tackiness either after application. I applied and put clothes on as it was during the day. If you wanted to build on the colour and go darker, apply another layer and leave overnight, I would do this for my legs as I find I always need to build tan on them. 

Sweet sunset vibes is a light gradual mousse tan and it is clear also. If you prefer a light glow you could try this one.   

it’s  love a daily moisturiser that gives you a glow €14.99

To maintain my tan, I applied the daily moisturiser which is a clear cream that you apply with your hands and don't forget to rinse your hands after application. I applied this on day three of my tan and it brought the colour back up again, it also smells divine. Great for maintaining your tan or you could apply on its own, also a handy product for holidays to give a little glow.  
So there you have it my view on some of the b.tan products, yes it rocks and will definitely have you Tanned AF. A lovely tanning brand that suited my skin and developed perfectly.Try it out for yourself b.tan is stocked in Penneys, Dunnes Stores and selected pharmacies. Follow b.tan Ireland on Instagram for all the updates.

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 …

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.

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 …
