Glitz up trainers with Stickcons

Yes I know I’m back with another glittery post haha! But you know how I love to support Irish Businesses and Stickcons is just that. I was sent these to try out and I just love them!  I glitzed up mine and my daughters trainers.

stickcons trainers before afterI was worried these would be a bit fiddly tricky to put on but nope, they were really easy and took me like 5 minutes to do. They are also really sticky! :)

kids stickonsWhat do you think? I live these and think they are a really fun activity for kids to customise their shoes (I found it quite fun too) and I like how happy my shoes look when I catch a glimpse of them :p

Stickcons cost €12 and come in a range of colours, you can buy them online or in Heatons stores. Also find them on Facebook & Twitter to keep up to date with them

Salcura Dermaspray Intensive for eczema – Review

As some of you may know my daughter (6) suffers from eczema, it tends to flare up really bad more so in the cold winter months., mainly on her arms, and sometimes a bit on her forehead and mouth area.

Over winter just gone, she got a bad dose of it after it had been gone for a few moths. It was so red on her arms and started getting blood spots too from her scratching :(

I’ve tried everything in the past like silcocks base, E45 etc but nothing really worked and she would complain that the creams would sting her and she didn’t like the sticky/oily  film the would leave on her skin

I got a sample pack to try you can get one here you just have to pay £2 for the postage. A big bottle is €18.95

Stocking Fillers for kids from Irish businesses

Well as you know by now I love to buy Irish and support big and small Irish businesses. I was looking for some unusual stocking fillers for the kids and I found these 2 small Irish businesses. Their service was brilliant, so quick with exceptional quality and prices.

Crayon Roll and purses from Ashgate Crafts

The crayon roll is a lovely stocking filler for kids who love colouring, also very handy for long car drives. Brilliant value for only €3.50 I think!! Rachel from Ashgate Crafts based in Arklow, Co.Wicklow also makes babies bandana bibs and booties, baby changing mats and bags and make up bags, best part is you choose what material/pattern you want from a huge selection!

You can find all Ashgate Crafts details and more lovely items on her Facebook Page or Etsy Shop

Next I bought personalised Chocolate bars from Marias Little Wrappers because what child doesn’t love waking up to chocolate in their Christmas Stocking rather than an Orange like me and my friend were only laughing about the other day haha! ;)

These are so cute and I can’t wait to give them to the kids and as little presents to people. Maria also does wrappers for all occasions and has recently added tins with personalised wrappers which can then be filled with goodies

Well I’m sure most of you know by now that I love Dealz, they have everything from beauty to homeware all at unbeatable prices (most things are all €1.49)  So I applied to be a Dealz ambassador to show you their great selection and now I am yippeeee :)
I will be doing more Hauls over the next year and show you all the fabulous deals you can get.

I went in for some Christmas bits and bobs last week. I got 21 items (and some had 2-3 items in each if you know what I mean) all for under €31!! As always I’m amazed at the amount of things I got and the quality too, it may be cheap but not cheap on quality. Also the staff are always very friendly and helpful in Dealz Blanchardstown. The store is always well stocked up and nice spacious isles so it’s easy to get around and find what you’re looking for

Glitter whooo! I’m like a magpie with Christmas decorations lol! My daughter actually came up with the idea to double the tree clip as a hair clip, I think it’s really cute!

Tree decorations also used as hair clip

Me and glitter are best friends so you can imagine my happiness when I seen this cute red glitter christmas tree (yes I am a glitter-a-holic) perfect little decorations for the table as are the candle holders.

Table Decorations

Glitter mini Christmas tree! Oh yeh!!

I actually bought the Allura beauty set for myself haha! Handy set to have in the handbag during the Christmas season. The tweezers is AMAZING girls!!!! As good as the ones I pay €10 for, no joke! It’s slanted and gives a great grip on the hairs your plucking.

I will deffo be buying a few more for my handbag, car etc! The nail files with it are also very handy and super cute. And I just love the jewellry stand..again these were all just €1.49 each!
You could get a ton of stocking fillers for just €10

cheap and cheerful Stocking fillers

With Christmas being sometimes quite stressfull Radox Unwind bath soak is a must have for me, €1.49 for this big bottle is amazing!. Also the good old Nair for people who hate waxing llike myself.

The highlighter does a pretty good job for the cheekbones too. Brush isn’t great with it but you just use your fingers or a concealer/foundation brush anyway

Not only are the cookies in these cartoon characters tins yummy,  but the tins will do for storage of other sweets or toys when empty or hang the lids on the wall and you have budget friendly kids room decor!! :P

I needed a serving tray for the cookies and biscuits eaten over christmas. The embossing on the tray is a really nice touch. You can’t have enough non stick roasting pans when making Christmas dinner either.
