beauty launch


I am a big believer in the phrase Treat Yo Self. My bank account is certainly aware of my love of this motto.

Ever since Tom and Donna introduced me to the phrase on Parks and Recreation I’ve been treating myself to everything from over-priced notebooks to concert tickets.

Trust me, it hasn’t gotten to a dangerous level (yet) but a recent tweet reminded me of why we should splurge on luxuries every now and then.

Following the death of her mum, Twitter user Cath (@rentswrites) shared: “After she died I was tasked with clearing out her things. So much unworn and untouched. So many things kept “for best.” Don’t do that. Wear the clothes, spray the perfume and dance in the shoes. Be bold/outrageous/fancy while you have the chance.”

This tweet got me thinking about how guilty we can feel for treating ourselves which is nonsense. So, when I got a sneak peek at the new L’Occitane Christmas collection my mind screamed… TREAT. YO. SELF.

This year, the brand has teamed up with none other than French fashion house Castelbajac. Together they have created a divine collection that has left us starry-eyed.

The two brands have put together the most divine collection inspired by constellations, that instantly reminds us of the classic childhood book A Little Prince.

The new collection features the classic products we have adored for years, but they’ve been given quite the eye-catching makeover.

The Shea Butter rage is here to save your skin during those bitter, icy winter days. One thing you need to invest in is the nourishing hand cream with 20 percent Shea Butter. It will leave your hands feeling super soft in no time. Pick up the 200ml tube of this life-saver for €24.

Another heavenly product on our wish list is the hydrating Almond Milk Concetrate. The swoon-worthy product is our winter saviour. It keeps your body hydrated from dusk ‘til dawn. Treat yourself to a 200ml jar for €46.

There are so many incredible L’Occitane products we want to try, from hand creams to lip balms, and the perfect way to find your holy grail products is by purchasing one of the classic advent calendars. The advent calendar features 24 mini-products that you can look forward to opening every day of December.

The Classic Advent Calendar is worth €99 but available for €59- the ultimate bargain.  The Luxury Advent Calendar is worth €126 but is priced at €99.

The new L’Occitane Christmas collection in collaboration with Castelbajac is available in stores and online from September 20, 2018.



You know what I love, more than anything else?

A sexy new makeup collection – especially when I genuinely love every single product included.

And the wonderful humans at Urban Decay have seriously delivered with their gorgeous new summer collection. 

Urban Decay's Beached Collection will be launching later this month online and in-store, but we have a sneak peak of all the products.

Prepare to start drooling, because it might just be their best work yet. 


Wish you were here  XO, UD #UrbanDecay

"This whole line is an extension of Urban Decay's matte Beached Bronzers, which launched last year," Steve Kassajikian, the brand's global makeup artist, told Cosmopolitan.

"So Wende (the company co-founder, FYI) wanted to create a collection based off of that. The packaging is inspired by the view outside of Wende’s home, which is right on the ocean."

Hey Wende, can we come for a visit? 

The collection is made up of GORGE lippies, divine bronzers and eye pencils – to name but a few.

Possibly the shining star of the range, the eyeshadow palette is honestly outrageous. 

With eight lovely shades, all inspired by that sweet beach lifestyle, Urban Decay may have actually outdone themselves on this one. 

With regards to the stun palette, "The colours were inspired with warm tones in mind, giving it that beachy summer feel with a touch of aqua," Kassajikian explains.

"They’re deeper toned so they’re not electric, and they go well with the bronze-y feel of summer." 

Lipsticks: "100 Degrees" on the left, "Heatwave" in the centre, and "Tower 1" on the right 

"The collection also comes with two Glide-On waterproof liners," Kassajikian adds.

"I love using a liner like "Lucky," a metallic burnt orange, on the top and bottom lash lines to warm up the eye in the summer; it can also brighten up your eyes if they're brown because the bronze-orange tones bring out the hints of orange in brown eyes." 



"The formula is super creamy, so you can use them all over the lid or wear them alone or as a base for shadow."

We're so excited for this launch, wow.
