Outfit from Sicily:-)

Hello Everybody,

It's that time of the year when I need a warm blanket, nice glass of wine and fire place on. Oh and a good movie too! I know that I day dream now. Having a child this is not always possible. But I managed to watch two episodes of "house of Cards" last night with my hubby:-) This is how crazy my life became.
I also tend to come back to my holidays pictures. It's so cold and misty today in Dublin, that a bit of sun from my pictures hopefully will cheer you up:-)


I was wearing LEMONADE top, ZARA skort and necklace, PRIMARK headband and sandals.

Have a great day

Choosing the right concealer

Hiya All,

Today is a bit "selfish" post. Due to my lack of sleep I was looking for some remedy in terms of good concealer coverage. I found few different types of concealer that might help tired Mummies, after party feeling and I suppose every girl that wants to cover imperfections. So here they are:

MAKE UP FOREVER Camouflage Cream Pot Conceals is good for redness and on a fair skin.


Redness Solutions Targeted Corrector can be used to neutralise redness on contact. Goes to work instantly-slipping yellow-corrective colour onto skin without pulling or tugging. Ideal for all over, or for targeting stubborn spots.


IsaDora, Colour Correcting Concealer each one including 4 poured types of concealers: colour correctors, concealer and highlighter. You can use a complementary colour to neutralise discolouration on your skin, green to reduce redness or violet for anti-dullness.

PUPA COVER cream concealer is good for discolouration, Spots, sun marks, acne scars or any pigmentation disorders

Smashbox Colour Corrector Primer. Counteract discolouration and even out skin tone with our problem-solving primers

Make sure to save this post. It will be handy to have it:-)

Homemade remedy for open pores

Open or large pores on the skin are a beauty concern for many and can also contribute to problems like acne and blackheads, especially for people with oily skin.
Excess sebum, along with dirt and bacteria, tends to clog the pores. To make matters worse, blackheads tend to make pores more visible and look even larger.

Prolonged sun exposure can contribute to open pores because it damages the collagen, thereby reducing the elasticity of the walls of the pore canals.

Similarly, open pores worsen with increasing age as the skin loses elasticity. Genetics, stress, and a poor skin care routine also contribute to open pores.
Though there are several cosmetic products in the market to deal with this problem, remember that pores are a natural part of your skin and cannot be completely eliminated. Before you go shopping, you can try some inexpensive, easy and natural home remedies to minimize the appearance of open pores. 

Here is my homemade solution for blackheads and open pores.

1. I invested in a good electric face brush. The one I'm using is:

I have to say I don't use face wash which was included. I am a fan of Clean and Clear exfoliating scrub. Even my husband cannot live without it:-) Those two products are a must have for me

For open pores- and I mean open pores. I looked like somebody did tiny holes in my nose. I always hated  them, and I couldn't do anything about to hide them...........until now!! Baking soda. This is my remedy. I was surprised that I got fantastic results after using it.

Ok, ok! Stop stressing I'm telling you now how to make it.

- 2 spoons of baking soda
- one spoon of natural yogurt (I use greek yogurt, cos I have it at home most of the time)
- you can add a tiny amount of honey if you want, but this is only optional

Make sure to mix everything. It should look like a paste. 

All I do is put it on my face, then wash it with my Olay brush. Once I'm done I'm leaving it on my face for another 10 minutes. That's it:-) 
Note that cold water is better for your pores, it keeps them closed.

Let me know if you have any other methods that you use.

Holiday flash back

Hiya Boys and Girls,

It's lashing raining in Dublin. It's so cold and dark in the morning:-( All  want is either xmas to come, or I wouldn't mind to go away.... to any sunny location. 

As I'm reviewing my holiday outfits, I have to say I miss sun. Less layers, bare feet on a sandy beach, lovely seafood and dinner out with a glass of wine. Mmmmmmm

Right, this is enough of that day dreaming. I have for you my summer ZARA outfit:-)

I was wearing ZARA trouser, sandals and top, MK watch, ALDO bag and Primark head band.

Have a great day! And don't forget to say what do ya think

I'm back:-)

Hi All,

hmmm not sure where to start. I was gone for such a long time. Actually since may (my daughter christening) I was traveling in between Ireland - Poland. On the top of that we did two trips to my parents in law holiday house and also one wedding in Sicily. It doesn't sound that much, but with a small child it was a lot of traveling.

I have to say the time is flying. Zoe was enjoying her summer in Poland. She was spoiled! Her own pool and much more entertainment she got at home. I suppose grandparents are all the same- especially with the first grandchild. 

Any way I owe you apology. I meant to be back in August...... I have to say I wasn't really sure if I should continue with my blog. Hmmm no idea why. I think I needed a big kick in my ars. Or just a kind words, you're not that bad. It makes you happy, so why stop. I think I needed to be back to work to work on my new routine. So hope ya didn't forget abut me:-)

I've selected few pictures of my girl, wedding and some outfits from the summer.

It was so hot that I wanted to join my daughter in that tiny pool.

We did a bit of travelling outside of my home town too. These guys looked so cool, that I had to stop them:-)

And some shopping of course. Yeah, you can see a little minion. It was a pressie for my husband. He loves minions !!!!!

Here are pictures from the wedding in Sicily. It was beautiful up there. Fab weather and delicious food. Not to mention fantastic wine. 

I was wearing Asos skirt, ZARA top, necklace,heels and gold sandals, Aldo bag and MK watch.

Have a great week
