Irish Beauty Show 2013 – My Buys

Bia Beauty Orange & Grapefruit Exfoliant & Cleanser

Yet another Irish skin care brand, Bia Beauty. I’m telling ye I can’t keep up with all these great Irish businesses popping up :) It’s great!!

A little about Bia Beauty: Founded by Herbal Scientist Tracey Ryan in Cork all Bia Beauty products are 100% natural and any emulsifiers and preservatives used are plant-based. Tracey does not test anything on animals either.
The tagline for Bia Beauty is ”Feed your skin” isn’t that beautiful? Your skin absorbs a whopping 60% of what you put on your skin so it really is best that the ingredients are natural!

I was lucky enough to get to try out her Orange & Grapefruit Cleanser & Exfoliator.

My Mothers Day Gift from L’Occitane En Provence, Lavender Set

Sorry I know I’m very very late posting this. Mothers day was ages ago here in Ireland but it’s coming up in America so I thought better late than never ;)

L'Occitane En Provence lavender gift set

I got this gorgeous L’Occitane En Provence Lavender Collection gift set for Mothers Day from the kids!

I just had to blog about it because the packaging is so pretty and I was new to their products…..so far I’m really loving them. A bit pricey for me but they are on my radar next time I’m looking for a pretty gift for someone or want to treat myself ;)

L'Occitane lavender gift set

The lavender in all the products is really fragrant too and the hand cream smell lingers for ages afterwards! I can’t even pick a fave out of the set, just trust me they are all beautiful products if you ever want to treat yourself or a friend. And I’m still thinking of what to use the pretty box for…..makeup most likely though!

International Womens Day & why we need Feminism

Today is International Womens Day, theme this year is A Promise is a Promise: Time for Action to End Violence Against Women. It’s to  highlight the hardships, unequal treatment, unnecessary suffering and violence against women in all parts of the worlds simply because we are women It’s also a day to highlight & celebrate the achievements , quality, strength, respect & the deserved equal rights of women everywhere.

Then today I see this ad in my local Northside People paper. I just looked at it in disgust and shock!! Is it really 2013 or are we back to the 1920’s when women were to be seen and not heard and it was practically forced for you to give up your job when you got married?
