Irish Blog Awards 2016


It's been a hectic year and it's only now I am getting around to telling you this news. These awards were on around the same time as my wedding so unfortunately I wasn't able to attend. But I was delighted to be shortlisted again this year in Ireland's Blog Awards for "Best Beauty Blog"(two years in a row yay!)
  To have my blog shortlisted with Ireland's greatest is just amazing. I can't believe "Pippa.ie" and "So Sue Me" were along side my name the same category. 
I am so grateful for every person who takes the time and reads the blog.  Did I ever think that starting this as a hobby would go so far! 
I look forward to lots of exciting posts to come in the New Year.
I want to wish you a very Happy Christmas, I hope it's the best one yet.

Love Annette X

Santorini: Santo Wines



We hired a car during the honeymoon, just to find those places we missed on the first time around. Andromahi at Homeric Poems (read about our hotel HERE) helped us find all those spots.

The Beauty Duo

Can't get your winged liner perfect? Unable to blow-dry your hair correctly? I have some news on an event that might interest you..


We have been planning this workshop with a while now and I am so excited to share it with you. 
I am collaborating with award winning hair stylist Cathriona Rohan , to bring you... The Beauty Duo!

We are hosting our workshop at The Aghadoe Heights Hotel On Sunday 29th January. 
This workshop will be a little different - everyone who attends will get to work hands-on in the class!

 On the beauty side I will demo a full makeup look with contouring and a smokey eye - everything from lashes to eyeliner to that perfect brow plus I will be there to guide you step by step as you work.

Cathriona will be teaching everything hair - tips to get volume in seconds with turning a day-to-night time look, how to style that awkward fringe plus chatting celebrity trends.
We have an amazing goodie bag for everyone containing all things hair and beauty. And while you drink some tea and eat sweet treats, we will answer any questions you may have.

Tickets are priced at €50 and are limited. They are available at both our salons: Le Beau Beauty Salon and Cathrionas Hair Salon if you wish to purchase.

We have set up a Facebook page especially for this event and would love you to join - click HERE

I'm thinking this would make a really good Christmas present for a fabulous day out together.

Hen party - The Algarve

As most of you probably know, I am getting married this year. I have been with hundreds of brides on the morning of their wedding, heard all their experiences, what they loved and what they found the hardest. When it came around to my turn I knew exactly what I wanted; something easy going, stress free and full of love.

Last night, as a little treat for Ciara's birthday (Happy Birthday Ci) we attended an "Afternoon Tea" demonstration at Just Cooking.

Founded by Mark & Bernie Doe, who have over 20 years experience in the food industry between them, it really is the perfect gift for a loved one or friend or a group looking for a great evening out.
