I love browsing through various online stores and adding items to my wishlist. I’m always coming up with outfit ideas and looking through magazines for inspiration. Boohoo and New Look are my two favorite online shops at the moment.
So for this look below, I found all items on Boohoo. This site is very inexpensive and I love the quality and range of items.
I recently ordered The Cult Beauty Box by Caroline Hirons (see post here: https://irishallure.com/2015/09/01/the-cult-beauty-box-by-caroline-hirons/) and while I was on the Cult Beauty website I picked up ALPHA-H Liquid Gold.
I have heard so many good things about this product and I have been dying to try it out myself.
This product is an award-winning treatment that targets wrinkles, sun damage and pigmentation by using low pH delivery system. Basically, it works overnight to “brighten and revitalise” both tired and ageing skin and improves your complexion.
The key ingredients include glycolic acid, licorice extract and silk proteins and it is recommended for mature skin.
It is advised that you cleanse your skin as normal and apply the Liquid Gold to your face, neck and décolletage using a cotton pad every second night. Once dry, apply your usual moisturiser or serum as normal. If you would rather an intense treatment then do not follow with anything after the Liquid Gold.
I got my bottle at http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk
So, I was lucky enough to get my hands on The Cult Beauty Box by Caroline Hirons. First of all, if you don’t know about the Cult Beauty website you can find it here – http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/ . They have a range of products from make up to skincare. It’s a great site for finding some of the world’s best beauty products that you might not easily find elsewhere.
Secondly, if you don’t know who Caroline Hirons is… then where have you been?? You can find her blog here http://www.carolinehirons.com/ and her youtube channel here https://www.youtube.com/user/dixierae25 . Caroline is a genius, look her up, listen to her… laugh with her. She’s just fab.
The box was £100 but was worth a total of £171.13 – full details below.
So I unboxed these goodies last night. See below for some pics and more info on the products inside ❤

I’ve recently tried a new soup recipe which is quick, easy and tastes so so good! I got the recipe from Slimming World so you know it’s a good addition to your healthy lifestyle. As alternative to courgettes, substitute in broccoli or any veg of your choice.
1 stock cube of choice
4 laughing cow cheese triangles (low-fat for a slimming recipe)
Chop up the courgettes and put them in a saucepan with the stock cube.
Add enough boiling water to cover the courgettes and simmer until they are soft (15-20 minutes).
To blend, I split up into 4 parts and added a laughing cow cheese to each quarter.
Let me know if you’ve tried it
So it has officially been 1 year since I started my blog! I just wanted to say thank you to all my followers and my fellow bloggers. The past year has been a great adventure and I hope to be here this time next year.
To those of you wishing to start a blog, just go for it. It’s a very personal thing but you get so much out of it and make so many friends along the way.
I have some great blog posts planned for this next year including some upcoming giveaways I promise.
