Alfaparf Milano Semi Di Lino Moisture Collection ~ For Dry, Tangled & Frizzy Hair.

In the last year and a bit everyone has heard of the hype for sulfate & paraben free shampoo’s and conditioners. How they are so amazing but a bit more expensive than we’re used to paying! So what is the big deal with them?? Why are sulfates & parabens not ideal for the hair??

I found my hair colour was starting to look lifeless, the shine and gloss was gone in a mere 2/3 weeks and my hair was not in great condition. Not terrible but slightly dry and frizzy!

So I had been in my local salon (Leah Kelly Hair Design Gort) getting my hair done a few weeks before Christmas and I was explaining problems I had with my hair, the colour etc… and Leah started telling me instantly that it was mainly sulfates that are not helping one bit and are a massive culprit in affecting coloured hair.

So first post of the year and I’m talking all about one of the hottest palettes of 2017! 

When Huda Beauty announced they were releasing a miniature version of their cult status palettes everybody needed and wanted one (including me).

There are 4 palettes in the collection: Electric Obsessions, Mauve Obsessions, Smokey Obsessions and Warm Brown Obsessions.

Each palette has 9 highly pigmented mattes and striking shimmers with foil like effect.

The palette I have is the Smokey Obsessions and it contains 4 mattes and 5 metallic shimmers.

Christmas Dinner for under €30!

Every year we do dinner with my mum and stepfather a few weeks before Christmas as we all don’t see each other and/or spend actual Christmas dinner with each other. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition.

I am very conscious about not spending too much on food shopping in general and it’s the same for this dinner but in no way would I compromise on quality.

The majority of products listed below are Aldi but there’s a few bits from Lidl & Supervalu also. I just want to state I am in no way affiliated with these supermarkets or sponsored. I do my shopping all the time in these supermarkets.

So let’s start off with the important stuff! This is a Christmas dinner that should serve 5-6 people, possibly more if you bulked up the plate with vegetables 🙂

So keep on reading for all the details 🙂

Review – Beauty Pro Lifting 3D Clay Mask

Clay masks are fantastic for drawing impurities out of the skin but they can get very messy.

I have been regularly using sheet face masks the last few months and my skin has improved greatly but it has to be continued to maintain.

I was very intrigued by this mask as generally you just get a clay mask in a tub or tube but this was a sheet mask, I wasn’t sure how this would work but couldn’t wait to try.

Beauty Pro have released 2 mess free sheet clay masks aimed to deep cleanse the skin and tighten pores.

I tried the Lifting mask with calamine so please continue reading to find out how I got on.
