Hand Maintenance

Hey guys

Hope you are all having a good week, it’s almost Wednesday, so we are nearly half way through the week– yay!

It has gotten so cold over the last few weeks; I’ve really been doubling up on the amount of Hand Cream I’ve been using. Hand Cream is an absolute essential part of my beauty routine, and even more so in the winter.

I always use it every morning and evening, and now I’m using it after lunch, and again in the evening when I get home from work.

As our hands are pretty much always out, they are really susceptible to the cold, and can get sore and cracked easily in winter especially.

These are my favourite Hand Creams:


Soap and Glory – Hand Food. This stuff is magic, non-greasy and it just soaks right in. It also smells absolutely divine!

Nivea – Age Defying Q10 plus. This is such a great hand cream, and is probably my favourite overall. It’s light, plus it’s got UVA/UVB-filters – always super important for anti-wrinkle.

Sanctuary – Hand Cream. This is such a lovely hand cream, it smells just divine. I feel it’s quite strong on my hands, so I wouldn’t be inclined to use this during the day, but it’s lovely to put on if you are heading out. This is definitely my treat hand cream!

Vaseline Intensive Care – Healthy Hands, Stronger Nails. This hand cream is a brilliant all-rounder. It is lovely to apply and just soaks right into your hands, while also strengthening your nails – a win win ladies!

Boots is my go to place for all of the above, but they are all available in pharmacies nationwide.

Top Tip – keep several small bottles around. I’ve got one on my desk, one on my night stand and another in my handbag – so it is always there, ready to go.

Let me know if there are any fab hand creams that you have been using in the comments below.

Enjoy ladies

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
So, we have 6 and a half weeks to Christmas, I actually heard Fairytale of New York in a bar at the weekend! With Christmas and presents in mind, one of the best presents a girl can get, or gift herself, is a new watch.

My Favourite Jeans

Happy Sunday everyone!

Every lady needs at least one pair of fabulous jeans. They are so easy to style and perfect for this time of year with boots.

River Island have the best jeans that I have ever come across at the moment!
They are the Amelie Reform Superskinny Jeans. I now own 3 pairs – and I literally live in them! They never lose their shape, so they are as fitted last thing at night as they were first thing in the morning – result!!
They’re also mid rise, so they are super comfy. At €50 a pair they are not too steep either, so go forth and purchase ladies, and enjoy!
