Favourites on Friday…#3.34

So all I hear in my head as I sit to write this post is…Rhianna… WERK WERK WERK! Yes teachers across the country prepare to re-enter the real world. This Summer I have enjoyed my three months like never before. I did say in last week’s post that I wanted to push this week like no other and I did. I met up with friends, saw the movie ‘War Dogs’, had Siobhan Macken do my brows…(Best.Brows.Ever.) and we went to Kildare Village for a little back-to-school shopping for Keith. I was back to the Howth Road for meetings this morning and it felt really productive. Pray for me next week. (Cheeky winky face)  The Callan & Co. Beauty rooms are sumptuous. It’s definitely a five star experience. If I get a chance this week I want to write about it.  I was so at home there Hahahaha I took all my photos when I was left alone.  Ah yes I took so many #BasicBitch photos of my lunches! Prawns are always top of my Favourites list. Our friends, Karl and Dee spoiled us with treats on Friday night! Ah this was so Instagram worthy!  Pretty fresh flowers catching the light!  So I figured something out during the week. I forgot to put some mouse in my hair on Wednesday. But the difference when my hair dried sans product, shows the might of this Shampoo and conditioner. My hair was way less frizzy. This kind shampoo is phenomenal for curly hair.  It will be strange to spend my week now in workwear, wearing a watch… Oh and not having to put a gazillion superhero figures in my handbag! Have a great weekend… Any teachers reading here… We Got This!

Shiseido Simple cleansing…

Is it just me or has cleansing become very complicated? 

As a teen I had three bottles of Simple, the cleanser, toner and moisturiser. The routine was simple – day and night! With a half dozen cotton pads it was very easy. In recent times my cleansing routine includes Micellar waters, cloths, foams, gels and the latest in the long list is…

 The Shiseido Creamy Cleansing emulsion* is probably the simplest cleansing system I have used in a long time. I am still using my Micellar water, to clean off the day. I then squirt (sorry If you hate that word too)… I pump, out the creamy cleanser onto some dry cotton rounds. I was also a complete rebel and used wet cotton pads… If you used to your face being cool and wet after your cleanse… The Shiseido takes a little getting used to… But here’s why I like it; 

1. It’s a simple step that can be done at a dressing table without the aid of a sink.

2. It’s silky smooth and glides on the skin.

3. It’s fantastic at taking off eye makeup.

4. The pump dispenses the perfect amount in a double click. 

5. Most importantly this cleanser doesn’t dry out the skin. In fact the skin feels so soft and clean. 

6. You can buy Shiseido in Boots and get points to spend on goodies…

I was such a big fan of Shiseido back in my twenties. It then disappeared out of beauty halls but I’m delighted to be rediscovering it again now. Have you tried any Shiseido products? What should I try next? 

❤️ Siobhan.

Favourites on Friday… #3.33!

What an amazing week… I mean it’s Saturday night… Late…and I’m only getting to my Favourites! Keith and I had decided last week that we were going to milk the last two weeks of our Summer holidays. This week was full of slacking off boring old housework. The three of us enjoyed our time together.(I’m so grateful the house work is waiting for me)  We attended the preview of “Don’t Breath” on Tuesday, I was given four tickets and all four of us loved it. I attended the #KindBloggerBoss breakfast in Penneys HQ on Thursday and had a great catch up. We spent today in Belfast, munching Five Guys and mooching about the shops. Next week we have lots planned and as always I will try and Snap (Daisy13179) the best bits.

 The sky during the week was spectacular. I stopped to take it in and then took my phone out.

 We are almost finished Tom’s room for toy storage. These IKEA units are perfect for housing his ten million Imagine XT figures.

 The mixed olive starter in Nandos is everything I want in a starter…

 I finished my first full size Kind Shampoo and Kind Conditioner. These are fantastic and the price point is excellent. 

 Ah we made it to the Primark Snapstory, look at the crazy happy head on me. 

 The obsession with the colour Grey continues. I popped this photo on Instagram from my snapchat. What are your thoughts on Instastories? Let me know? I haven’t invested any time in it… Still deciding how I feel about it. Have a great weekend… Let’s hope McGregor beats Diaz tonight at UFC 202! 

❤️ Siobhan.
