Pretty Little Thing

BPerfect LIMITED EDITION Strawberry Scented Tan

Hey Guys

You know me I love a good tan and I always love trying out new tans. One of my absolute favourite tan brands to use is BPerfect Cosmetics. I’ve been using pretty much all of their products since they launched so any time they release something new I’m also so keen to try.

Last week they launched they’re new Limited Edition Strawberry Scented tan and I was so excited to try this out. So just like any of the other tans in the 10 second tan range from BPerfect the Strawberry Tan is no different. This self tanning mousse is lightweight, quick drying and created with natural and organic active ingredients just like the rest of the range. This one is in the shade Medium Dark. What’s great about this tan is that there is so awful smell of any of the tans in the range and this one smells extra good because it smells just like strawberries and aswell keeps your skin really soft.

What I love about any of the 10 second tans is that there is an instant colour guide for the tan and it develops so nicely with no marks or streaks (once applied correctly)

I normally apply my tan using the velvet mitt from BPerfect Cosmetics as I feel that my tan just glides onto my skin once using it and it starts to gradually fade within 3-5 days.

The limited edition tan is available online Online here for €17.95 the mitt can also be bought on the BPerfect Website.

You can shop the whole range of products available from the BPerfect Cosmetics Website which includes a whole range of makeup to tan. Products are also available in most pharmacies nationwide such as Meaghers, McCabes and Lloyd’s

If you try out this tan let me know what your thoughts are

A little bit about Irish Green Jewelry – Collab

I recently teamed up with Irish Green Jewelry to promote some of their stunning pieces from their site. Irish Green Jewelry is based in the West of Ireland and they sell quality handmade Irish jewelry.

The item that I loved the most was the Celtic Cross Sterling & Claddagh Pendant. This one really stood out to me and I thought it was the perfect piece even to wear for Paddy’s Day which is fast approaching.

This Pendant has two designs in one. The Celtic Cross necklace for women has a center Claddagh Design which combines two great Irish images in one piece of jewelry. The Celtic Cross design is the melding of the older round Celtic sun worship design with the more recent Christian Cross design. Variations in the design are attributed to different areas of Ireland and of Scotland.
This design has come to mean ‘Let Love and Friendship Reign’. The Irish Ring Claddagh design traditionally shows a pair of hands holding a heart, which carries a crown on top of it. The heart means love, the hands mean friendship and the crown represents the nobility of those three qualities.

The people that design, cast and hand finish this jewelry are masters of their craft and they follow in a long tradition of precious metal work in Ireland which can definitely be seen in each piece.

This jewelry makes the perfect gifts for anyone throughout the year. There is a huge selection of different hand crafted pieces that your sure to find something for everyone.

You can follow Irish Green Jewelry on Instagram and check out their Website to view the range of pieces available. I have also been given a DISCOUNT CODE which you can use at the checkout to receive 10% off your order USE CODE: CIARA10

That’s it for today let me know what you think of the range

All you need to know about Blue Lens Glasses – Ambr Eyewear

For a while I had seen a lot online about blue lens glasses but being honest I didn’t really take much notice at first and then all of a sudden it was as if everyone had a pair and every second post on Instagram it was to do with blue lens glasses. When I gave in and looked into it more I realized the importance of blue light and how important it is to protect your eye especially if you’re constantly on your phone or laptop all day long like me.

I won’t lie, I was a little unsure about it all initially and it did take me a good while after a lot of research to finally decide on a pair of blue lens glasses that were stylish yet affordable. I had seen many of the blue lens glasses online that cost hundreds of euros and I thought to myself not a chance am I paying that for something that may not even help me personally. So I came across a super stylish and affordable brand online that is called Ambr Eyewear. I had a look on their website and instantly fell in love with the ranges of glasses to choose from of both non prescription and prescription glasses.

Obviously I don’t have perception glasses so when I went to buy the blue lens glasses I did question do I need a percription? Do I need an eye test before purchasing? And the answer is no. Which I think is great because it saves a lot of hassle as I mentioned before I spend most of my days on my phone or on my laptop and even watching the TV (which is a lot of blue light) and I did find I was starting to get headaches and couldn’t sleep properly so for this reason this is why I personally wanted to try and protect my eyes from any potential harm that blue light could be doing, without knowing the long term affects.

What is it?

“Blue light is the rays emitted off the monitor and screens of smartphones, computers, and TVs that strain your eyes by causing strain on the visual system.”

People these days are constantly in front of a screen so obviously overtime blue light is going to effect your eyes at some stage as too much of anything is harmful of course.

What do the glasses do?

Ambr Eyewear protect your eyes from the effects of blue light. These blue light lenses have been proven to reduce the effects of blue light so you can spend as much time on Instagram as you want all whilst protecting your eyes. You’ll notice that the glasses have a slight yellow tint to them, which counteracts the blue rays. This can’t be noticed though once wearing the glasses you can only really see it if you hold them a certain way in the light.

Symptoms of Blue Light Damage..

  • Eye Fatigue
  • Discomfort or irritation in Eyes
  • Headaches
  • Dry or itchy eyes
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Not sleeping
  • Not working to full potential

I personally didn’t think too much into these symptoms until I looked into getting the glasses as I just thought I was getting headaches because I was tired and my eyes were dry and blurry because I was tired and not for a minute did it ever cross my mind that it may all be down to blue light which now after using the glasses I can clearly say it was.

I’ve been using these glasses from Ambr Eyewear for over a month now and I can honestly say I have found a difference. I have been sleeping better at night, no more headaches and I can spend as much time as I like on my phone without feeling guilty. I personally chose Ambr Eyewear because they were the most affordable brand for my budget. They have a great range of blue lens glasses available online from Kids to Adults and they start from just €51 here is a link to the Glasses I bought which I got €5 off my purchase on the day just for recommending a friend

Here is the link to receive €5 off your order *expires March 29th*

Ambr Eyewear can be bought online direct from Their Website or can be bought instore at Brown Thomas

You can keep up to date and follow Ambr Eyewear here on Instagram

That’s all for today if you try out the glasses or have any questions let me know in the comments below

The Perfect Cuppa – Chi Fit Tea

Hey Everyone
Today we’re talking TEA!!! Anyone that knows me or follows me over on my Instagram will know that I am a HUGEEE tea lover (and a sucker for coffee too)
Recently I was introduced to the account Chi Fit Tea and I have been totally obsessed since. The team sent me out a variety of different teas and coffee to try out and they are honestly all soooo tastey I cannot get over how good they taste.

Chi fit tea is an Irish company with a passion for tea. They named their tea after the Chinese word ‘Chi’, or ‘energy’, to emphasise the origin and heritage of the ingredients. After lots of research the decided to set out to create their own delicious blend of tea. Chi fit tea is made from ten of the finest naturally powerful ingredients, full of naturally occurring properties that help give an energy boost, great for pre gym sessions and the ingredients also promote health and fitness benefits and can be used to aid slimming in conjunction with the Chi fitness healthy eating program which is available to view Here

Chi fit tea is so simple to make just like any nice cup of tea you can make it to how you like it. Personally I love the sleep blend as I find it helps me to relax in the evenings after a busy day and helps me to sleep better at night. I also did try some of the coffee from the range and it’s soooo good maybe even better then Starbucks (shhh I didn’t say that)

I find that with the Chi Fit Tea they not only taste amazing but also leave you feeling good after you drink it with no bad after taste or sickly feeling. I honestly would say I am addicted to this tea and I don’t know where I would be without it.

As mentioned above there is a healthy eating diet plan you can follow to coincide with the tea blends if your looking for one to loose weight or just to get yourself into a better eating habit defiantly check it out

Chi fit tea do offer worldwide delivery and all of their bundles and offers can be found on their website HERE

If you do try out the range do let me know your thoughts

That’s all for now!!

SMAK BRUSHES- Couture Brush Set Review

Hey Guys

Happy New Year!

So over the Christmas I was trying out lots of different products and new brands and one of those was a Brush Kit from SMAK BRUSHES. Now I don’t know about you but I have an OBSESSION with makeup brushes especially ones that look absolutely Devine so when I seen this set I just couldn’t say no and not try them.

SMAK BRUSHES Very kindly sent me out their Couture Brush Set to try out and review so thats exactly what I’m talking about today.

These brushes are completely vegan-

friendly and very soft to the skin. I absolutely love the colours of the emerald green combines with white and gold it makes them look even more expensive then they are.

This gift set also comes with a pink blending sponge which is fab for creating that perfect look. Of course it is essential to look after your makeup brushes so cleaning them every now and then is what you need to do. I normally clean mine using a stylpro and do this maybe once a month (which probably isn’t ideal but it works for me) This set does come with a little white cleaning pad which is also ideal for cleaning brushes or to use for just switching eyeshadow colours

This brush set is also the one that was used in the 2018 Miss Universe Ireland competition which is amazing because did you see how flawless everyone’s makeup was for that? I put it all down to SMAK BRUSHES

Instead of me going though how to use each brush I decided to make an Instagram video (which was my first ever one so don’t judge) I created a simple quick and easy look using this brush kit so if you want to check it out you can just click HERE

This particular brush set retails at €69.99 you can shop this gift set on the SMAK website HERE

Make sure to check out SMAK BRUSHES on Instagram

If you do decide to get this gift set or if you have tried out any of these products before do let me know your thoughts

Much Love,

New York, New York

Hey Everyone,

If you’ve been following me on my Instagram (@ciaraaglynn) you’ll know that I have just gotten back from a trip to New York. Ive had lots of questions about the trip so I just thought id put a little blog post together with all the info.

So here we go…

We first booked this trip back in April of this year with Cassidy Travel in Liffey Valley (they have some fab deals all throughout the year so definitely check them out) We went to the big apple for 5 days which was the perfect amount of days to get lots of site seeing done and of course a bit of shopping too, if we could have we would have stayed longer although 5 days is enough it’s just such a beautiful city with so much to explore no matter how long you go for I guess it will never be enough…

Ever since I got back the main question I’ve been asked is “well did you do much shopping?” Or “say your broke after all that shopping” To be honest I personally wouldn’t recommend it for shopping and a lot of people will agree with me as the shopping here in Ireland is equally if not better then nyc…of course we did do some shopping but anything we got was a genuine bargain as they say. We didn’t go to any of the outlets or that as the concierge at our hotel said to us that it’s equally as good in Macy’s as it is in jersey gardens so we didn’t see the point in rushing off for a shop when we could get more site seeing in which is what we were there for most. As for the outlet called Woodbury it would have cost us $50 per person for a bus there and back which would have taken up a whole day as you had to leave at 8am and the bus returning didn’t leave until 3:30pm maybe if we had of been there for a couple days longer it would have been worth the trip but to be honest I don’t regret not going.

New York is definitely an expensive place to visit but it can be done on a budget which is what we did. Food wise on our first night we ended up in McDonalds in Times Square and I think it worked out about $9pp for a meal. The second night we were taking it easy and ended up in a burger place called Wendies which is a huge fast food restaurant in America. For a meal here it worked out about $10pp. The third night we wanted to treat ourselves so we went for dinner in Planet Hollywood in Times Square which was absolutely amazing. I think the total meal came to $118 but as tips are a huge thing over there an extra 20% had to be added on to the bill. The last night we went to another popular American fast food place called Chick Fila which was amazing and again worked out around $10pp. There are plenty of corner pizza shops around the streets of nyc if you wanted something like that we did have pizza during the day time or a subway and a dunkin donut to keep our energy going. So definitely food wise nyc can be done on a budget.

We stayed in the Walcott hotel on W31 street and we absolutely loved it. It was quite old style but so central and literally right around the corner from all the shops and were pretty much in walking distance to everything even Times Square. New York is all about the walking so make sure you have a good pair of comfortable shoes with you.

There are so many sites and things to do in New York so you will never get bored whatever you choose to do. I feel like no matter how long your there for you’ll always find something different to do each day cause there’s so much. Here’s just some of the things we did during our stay:

  • Central Park was definitely one of my favourite places to visit. Elf is my favourite Christmas movie and being able to see the fountain Santa flew over kinda gave me chills. It’s such a beautiful park and there were carol singers around too which made it feel extra festive. We choose to just walk the park but there are options of cycling and guided tours if you wish.
  • Top of The Rock had always been on our list of things to do. We chose to do the top of the rock at night time as the views at night made the city look even more magical. It was $40pp for this but it’s definitely worth it to get to see how stunning the City really is from 69 floors up.
  • The Empire State Building was literally right outside our hotel so we got to see it everyday and walk by on our way to explore the city. It was tough to choice between going up here or the top of the rock (as we only did one ) we will definitely do the Empire State Building next time round after all it is where Walter Hobbs worked in elf which is my favourite movie
  • Statue Of Liberty was also a must see on our lists. We got the ferry tour on the Queen of Hearts which lasted about an hour which was perfect cause that’s what we wanted. This was $40pp to do and it took in the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, One World Trade Centre, Ellis Island etc. It was a guided tour but you were free to roam about the boat while on board and it also included a complementary drink.

  • Brooklyn bridge was just like in a movie. We took the subway to Brooklyn and walked back across it which we felt was the best option for us. It took about 40mins/1hr to walk the bridge but could take you less we were just so in awe and wanted as much pictures as we could so we took our time. I’d say on a summers day this is the perfect thing to do while in nyc as the views and the walk itself is so magical.

  • 9/11 memorial is definitely something to visit while in New York. We went and although New York is such a loud and busy city here there was a sense of peacefulness and eeriness as it was so quite around the memorial even though there was hundreds around. We didn’t do the tour but we did go to find the first fire station that was on call at the time of these attacks and it’s literally right beside where it all happened.
  • The Flatiron Building is also a must see as of course it’s so iconic to New York and to the movie Spider-Man. It is a really photogenic spot around this area too.

  • The Rockefeller Tree is a must see at Christmas time. It is honestly the most beautiful Christmas tree I have ever seen in my life. We actually arrived the day of the lighting ceremony but it was so so crazy we decided to leave it until the next day to go see the tree and it work out even better as we got to see the tree in the day time and at night time. Every 15/20 mins there is a light show at Sacks and we were lucky enough to stand right by the Rockefeller tree in the evening while we watched the Sacks 5th Avenue light show.

  • Times Square is just like the movies. It’s so bright and crazy busy 24/7 we were about 20mins walk from Times Square so pretty much every day we went here and it was so lively. Although we left it till the last day to get pictures and the steps where closed but we made the most of it being honest.

  • American Museum of National History was one we didn’t have on our list but ended up here and it was great. The movie night at the museum was based around here and it was so cool to see inside the museum and get to see some of the animal statues that come alive at night time.

  • St Patrick’s Cathedral is beautiful especially if you want to see the crib at Christmas time. It’s a beautiful church to go into and take a minute to yourself.
  • Trump Tower is also another must. We didn’t realize until we got there that it is actually open to the public so of course we went in. I’ve never seen so much gold in my life such a stunning building.

  • Macy’s is obviously a must such after all it is so iconic around Christmas time thanks to Miracle on 34th Street. It is. Probably the most crazy shopping mall I have been in before. The windows outside are also so beautifully decorated for Christmas and make for some cute pictures.

  • The Friends Apartment Building is definitely a must see if you’re a huge friends fan like me. Although the series was not filmed there it is based around this apartment building and it is used in the outside shots. It’s on 50 Bedford Street pop it into google maps and it takes you right there.

  • Radio City Music Hall is also so festive and it worth a trip in the evening time to see it all lit up and looking magical.

  • The Met Gala was on my list of places to see because who doesn’t dream of being a Kardashian on the red carpet at the Met?

  • Grand Central Terminal is also just like straight out of a movie and is such a stunning building to visit while your there.

There is so much to do and see in New York and I know 5 days probably isn’t long enough but we did quite a lot during our stay and we loved every minute.

I’m gonna leave it at that because I know I’ve thrown so much already into this and could talk about New York all day long.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post

Much Love

Last week, Thursday the 27th of September the Irish Beauty Blog Awards sponsored by Tan Organic, took place in Lillie’s Bordello Dublin. Basically this event celebrates all bloggers and content creators big or small from around Ireland.

I was lucky enough to have been shortlisted in not one but TWO categories Best Fashion Influencer’ and ‘Best Social Media Influencer’ which I still cannot believe and can’t thank you all enough for voting constantly and getting me to the shortlist.

It was my first year at the awards so being honest I didn’t really know what to expect. The biggest worry everyone as I’m sure most would agree when you get an invite like this is what am I going to wear? The dress code for the night was “GLAM” so straight away I went shopping for an outfit. Being honest it took me a good while to find something I tried online and I stores but only 3 days before the awards I found an outfit online and ordered it (I know cutting it short)

The outfit I went for was a wine coloured jumpsuit and everyone knows I love a good jumpsuit. This one had no straps was a bandeau style, a belt that tied around the waist and two slits on either side of the legs (which I know you can’t really see but trust me they’re there)

I ordered the outfit from the petite section like I normally do as I’m only 5″4″ so I wouldn’t be the tallest. This jumpsuit is from BOOHOO when I ordered this there was 30% off on the website so all together the outfit only cost me €20 BARGAIN!!!!

My shoes I went for were from Penneys. They where a black open toed heel with a clear strap across the foot. These I only picked up in Dundrum Shopping Centre last week and cost me €16.

I wore gold jewelry on the night with my outfit and actually tried out a new tan too which I kinda love. I tried the Crazy Angel Tan which is a brand I had never tried before but so far I’m absolutely loving it and the fade is so so even.

My hair and makeup I did myself.. literally I just curled my hair and clipped back the front parts underneath just to make it look a bit different for the night. My makeup, I used the Bperfect Cosmetics Carnival Palette to creative a Glam look on my eyes. My foundation is the Maybelline Superstay in the shade ivory as always and to darken it up a little more (as I had tan on and it didn’t really match) I used the SoSu Contour Palette which always works a dream and of course the SoSu highlighting palette was used for that glow.

I’m also still not over the fact I got to meet the one and only TOFF!!! Georgia Toffolo from made in Chelsea and Winner if I’m a Celebrity.. attended the awards on the night and is probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Queen is right.

We had the best night with our friends at the awards and of course afterwords too. We got to meet some new gorgeous creators on the night too who normally I’d only see through Instagram.

Overall it was the best night and I had so much fun. Again thank you all for getting me to the shortlist and well done to all the amazing winners on the night.

Roll on 2019…

Much Love

Product Review – Natural Shop Ireland

Hi everyone

Happy Tuesday I hope your all having a lovely week so far! For me skincare is a top priority of mine and I am constantly changing my skincare routine not just facial products but body products are just as important in my opinion.

Recently I was kindly sent a package from the Natural Shop ireland and I have been absolutely loving the products so I thought today I’d share them with you guys.

The Natural Shop offers a selection of skin care products that help you retain a beautiful body. They believe that the best ingredients are those which nature is sharing with us and this would be why they offer natural skin care products. The products are also made by specialists and pretty much all of them are handmade which makes them even more unique and special.

I received 3 products from the Organique Delicious Touch Range which was the Fragranced Body Lotion, The Body Sugar Peeling Scrub and a fab bath bomb. I’ve been using these products over the past few weeks and I’m obsessed (especially with the body lotion because it smells DEVINE)


This is a body scrub filled with saturated oils, sugar crystals and raspberry seeds which massage the skin and thoroughly exfoliate the rough epidermis. (It’s very good for using to get left over fake tan off) After the treatment, the skin regains its glow, becomes smooth, looks nourished and is beautifully scented.

HOW TO USE: apply some onto the skin and massage with damp hands, then rinse. It’s that simple

This products helps exfoliate rough epidermis, cleanses skin while also protecting your skin during exfoliation, after using it leaves your skin feeling really smooth and hydrated with a fab scent

Body scrub retails for €23.90


This is probably my favourite product out of all these to be honest. It is a very light, scented body lotion that absorbs quickly, covers the skin with a sensual scent, leaves it feeling extremely soft and smooth. (Trust me though as I keep saying this product smells TOO GOOD)

HOW TO USE: Normally like any other body lotion all you need to do is massage a small amount of the lotion into your skin and it will automatically feel fresh and smooth.

This lotion will leave a beautiful scent on your skin for a long time, it revitalizes, improves hydration, softens epidermis, smooths skin and leaves it looking radiant. I use this product on a daily basis and am loving how soft my skin is at the moment.

Body lotion retails for €23.50


Lastly I received a bath bomb. I mean who doesn’t love a bath bomb they’re so relaxing almost like an at home mini spa. This bath bomb smells amazing although one tip because of the high amount of oils in this product I would definitely recommend using half or even quarter of the bath bomb at a time as using the full thing could get a bit out of hand.

HOW TO USE: Drop half of the Bath Bomb in the bath with warm water.

( Again please Note: Due to the high content of natural oils product may leave greasy residue on the tub.)

So far I’ve used this twice and each time I’ve used quarter of the bath bomb and it still has turned out amazing. The smell of the bath bomb also makes me feel like I’m at a spa.

Bath bombs retail from just: €5.99

I honestly couldn’t recommend these products enough and especially for anyone that loves skincare definitely check them out. They would also make the perfect present for someone as even down to the packaging it’s perfection.

That’s it for today make sure to check out the natural shop on Instagram

And don’t forget you can shop the full range of products including all listed above HERE
