Sustaining Your Natural Beauty


With so many chemicals being added into our food and sprayed on our food, 
to "preserve" it, we need to try to eat as healthy as possible and know where our produce is coming from. We need to know what we are actually putting into our bodies and how it can be affecting our health. 
Sore joints and bones? Fresh Ginger is amazing to help. 
Sore gums? Fresh pineapple is fab. 

The same goes for our hair and skin products. Washing your hair and moisturising your skin is just as important. The ingredients go into your system the same way food does. 
This is why I LOVE the Davines products. 

Not only are they environmentally friendly and sustainable, but, they
  DON'T TEST ON ANIMALS!


The following paragraph has been taken from their official website

DAVINES STORY

Founded in Parma, Italy in 1983 by the Bollati Family, Davines Group started as a research laboratory, producing high-end hair care products for renowned cosmetic companies worldwide. After a decade of honing our expertise, we began creating our own brand of Davines hair care products exclusively for salons, and in 1996 founded[ comfort zone ] skin care for premier spas. 
“BY CREATING BEAUTY SUSTAINABLY, WE ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES, OF THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY LIVE & WORK, OF THE THINGS THEY LOVE.”
Since the beginning, we’ve focused on crafting quality products that are scientifically engineered to work, and express our distinctive style and spirit.
Check out their website and Facebook pages for updates on all their amazing products, and to find salons that stock their gorgeous products. 
The salon I work from, Blue Hairdressing, 13 Clarence Street, Belfast, BT2 8DY stocks the Davines range. We use it at the back wash also, so you get the full effect of the shampoo and conditioners that you would be using at home. 

I even have their blow-dry range in my bridal kit. It is such a luxurious and amazing product. 

Honestly, once you start using Davines, you won't go back. My own bathroom is stocked with the Oi shampoo and conditioner. It is so lovely and makes my hair feel and look fabulous. 



I LOVE IT!



Thank you for listening to me.

My first Nomination Award .... EEK!!!


Below I have copied and pasted the explanation of the Mrs2Be Brides' Choice Awards. 

I am so honoured and delighted to have been put forward for this award. My brides from 2015 have kindly and lovingly taken the time to vote for me and I am over the moon that they did. 

The awards are not vote driven, but will be picked by the judges. Even to be nominated is such an honour to me. 

Good luck to all the applicants in the wedding industry and I wish you all the best in your future success within your line of expertise. 

wish me luck peeps xo 


The Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards were launched in 2014. The awards are the first and only Irish wedding industry awards that are based on a detailed review process involving each entrant’s previous customers. Entrants are judged on a range of criteria including professionalism and quality.
To win or to be shortlisted for a Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice is a real achievement. Our awards cannot be bought and they are not your typical “click to vote” popularity contest.

Our awards recognise excellent quality of service, professionalism and flexibility of wedding suppliers and venues.

Jamberry Nail Fun

Well guys, you know me. I try my hardest to keep up to date with my blog, but these days between life and work, and well, being a full time mum to a beautiful little 2&1/2 year old daughter Florence. My life is pretty hectic. Fun, but mad! 

I am always trying to think of cool things that I think Florence would like to do. As a mum, I want the best for my daughter and being a little weird, I don't like to put nail polish on her finger nails. One, it's toxic and I don't want her biting it off and eating it. Two, trying to get a 2 year old to sit and wait for her nails is dry is, well, stupid and not going to happen, hehe!! Three, Jamberry nails are 100% non toxic & safe, and totally kind to her skin........... and Four, I'm a sucker for anything I can do with Florence that brings us closer together and we can share proper mummy, daughter Anyone who knows Florence, knows only too well her love of stickers. So when my friend Cathy came to me with her new business venture, I was suitably excited and had to buy ALL the skull and dinosaur nails. Like, please! who doesn't need a little dinosaur or polka dot on your baby finger?! 

Please click on her link to her Facebook page below and you can see all the exciting Jamberry nail activities you can get involved with.



The following images are from when we did the skull and polka dot wraps on Florence's nails. She loves them and shows them off to anyone who will listen, hehe. 




The link below will take you straight to Cathy's Jamberry website and explain everything that is fabulous about Jamberry nails. 

Please check it out guys. 

Thank you. xo
