Drink and Draw Night!

Tonight a gang of us headed to a Drink and Draw night with local artist Deborah O Keefe. We’ve known Deborah for a few years now and her work is amazing- straight out of your favourite children’s story book beautiful! 

The concept came from America and has travelled here. For €20 we are given all the supplies necessary and 1 drink of your choice from the bar! 

For 2 hours you are completely in another world, lost in smudging and colouring, I didn’t want it to end. Here’s what we were following –


I was very rusty but rustled up this- 


My mum and I obviously had the messiest  table! 


I can’t wait to go home and stick it on the fridge, 2 hours of silliness and snacks!! 

I’m definitely coming again- if you would like to attend please contact Deborah on Facebook and book a place. It’s well worth it 😊

Review: Joico Cleansing Range

Joico were kind enough to send me their new product Moisture Co + Wash Whipped Cleansing Conditioner for dry hair- already I’m into it! 

 As you may know I have curly unruly hair- sometimes it’s nice other times I resemble Stig of the Dump. It’s never the same once it’s been washed either and has a mind of its own. I’ve been trying desperately to get my hair back to it’s natural state after years of abusing it (all on my Instagram feed if you’d like to see). I had been using Joico Curl Cleansing Sulfate Free Shampoo for a few weeks and it had made my curls so healthy and fresh looking so I was intrigued by the conditioner. Packed with ingredients like Jojoba and Shea it helps your hair retain it’s natural oils and doesn’t feel stripped and dry.


Like a mouse in consistency- it’s creamy and so moisturising. I used it for the first time this morning and my hair felt lighter and so clean. Some products can leave my hair feeling heavy or with a residue but this was really fresh. I already love Joico products but I have finally found products to help my hair! 

I never know how it’s going to end up until it is dry so here is a before- 


And an after- soft lightweight curls that didn’t take hours to dry!!

Joico products are available to order online and to buy in Kopper Hair Salon which I have to visit soon. I haven’t seen a hairdresser since Christmas (Shame!) Hopefully they can tame my mane! 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend-

Writer’s Block and Wish Lists.


I’ve been in hiding. Actually I have been hidden away by work, hidden from the sun, keeping me inside where I’ve become gloomy. This does not suit my personality at all. I have been working on a secret project of late which I absolutely adore- I get to use my skills and love of writing and blogging and this has made such a difference to my life.

I know what I want to do now. Isn’t it strange that it took 6 years after my Leaving Certificate to realise? Well I do now and that’s all that matters. All will be revealed in time.

In other ways it has affected my life badly I’ve become an awful blogger with awful writer’s block and that will have to change! So much for being nominated for an award- I’d have to give it back out of shame! I did see that a few people who’s blogs I love made the shortlist so a big shout out to Damien Broderick and The Two Darlings! Well done!

As I finally have internet again I have filled every single wish list there is online. I have a family wedding in September and have picked at least 50 ‘maybe’ dresses. I’ll probably go for the very first one I picked. It’s payday tomorrow so I think the Asos and Feel Unique baskets will finally be bought. Yay. I really want to try the Mary Lou-Miniser and I definitely need new foundation and skincare. The ‘new’ job is causing serious havoc with my skin. I have also been using the i-White strips so I have a review coming soon. Has anyone else tried these?

I have no other news but there are a few lovely posts on their way soon. I hope everyone had a great weekend-
