New Years Resolutions

new year 

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope you all had fun celebrating. I know I did (albeit at home on the couch with a rare drink)..

2017 was a year to remember for all the right reasons and the wrong. It had its high and lows and I’m determined to take just the good points with me to 2018 and start again, press the reset button and make this the best year ever!

Black Friday (12 of the Best)


Black Friday 2017, has at long last come around with some great deals on offer. In past years I never paid much attention to it, but this time I decided to have a look at what all the hype is about and I must say I’ve been impressed.

Leading up to the actual day itself, there’s been plenty of pre-sale activity. It seems like most sites had some form of discount or offer, whereas other stores waited for the day itself to bring you the best deals.  As the day is drawing to a close, there are still a few offers around to make it worth your while.

Boots Baby Essentials better than Brand Name?

Boots Baby range vs brand name 

I haven't wrote a post in a while, but decided to do one on baby products for a change as I use so many of them everyday. When my baby was born around 9 months ago, I went down the same route pretty much every new parent goes down. I bought from all the big main trusted brands - Pampers nappys, Johnsons baby bath, Water wipes etc. As I had my last baby 8 years before, it was like starting all over again, and I was being really careful selecting stuff for my little bundle.
As time went on, I realised there were so many baby brands! Impossible to know the good from the bad and you don't want to take the risk, especially early on, as they are so delicate.
In Boots one day, nosing around the baby aisle (I do most of my baby shopping in Boots), I came across their own brand wipes. Having been fed up of the cost of the Water wipes (which are renowned for being gentle on baby), I examined the packet and realised the minute difference in the ingredients..

Dealz Makeup Haul

Makeup Haul Dealz Title Graphic showing Rimmel, Max Factor, Burts Bees, Loreal 

Dealz! I cannot express how much I love this shop and it's little bargains! I know all the €1.50's still add up on the receipt but I just can't help myself. 
Lately I've come across some great beauty buys in Dealz. I'm not talking about their own range 'Makeup Gallery' which can be hit or miss (though love their liquid eyeliner!).  I'm talking about the fact that I've recently discovered a great stash of brand name makeup being sold in their stores.  Where previously hung little bits of 'Hello Kitty' and some more unknown cosmetic brands like 'Astor'?, now are the likes of Burt's Bees, Max Factor, Barry M, NYC to name a few. When I saw this, I knew I had to stock up on a few bits.  In the long run it will definitely save me a fair few euro and who knows how long this will last? I love my budget beauty buys and these are a few great items to add to my collection.  Below is the rundown on each of these products I purchased recently..
