Garnier's newest budget range for hair, Ultimate Blends, has been everywhere this year; I attended the launch in early spring and was impressed enough at the claims. The range is based on the concept of a custom blend of oils for different hair types and needs - a fairly logical progression, oils have been the biggest thing to happen in haircare over the last five years or so.

If I had set about to write this post two years ago, I would have struggled. However, the low-to-mid range beauty market has improved tenfold in that time and I had a hard time whittling this category down to just 15! I wanted to do this post as, even though I do have a penchant for the luxe end of things (I might do a similar post on that?), a large portion of my everyday stuff is from the more pocket-friendly bracket.

We've both kind of dropped off from writing these update posts; it's been such a lovely summer so far and I think we've both just been far too busy enjoying ourselves! The past month has been a bit manic for me between gigs, a trip away and my birthday, so let's have a little catch-up. Apologies for the influx of selfies!

Sometimes a product comes along out of nowhere and knocks my socks off. Case in point right here: Sinéad very kindly sourced this from a relative who was away in the States as a birthday pressie. I'd been very curious about BITE Beauty for a while; they're a brand specialising in luxury lip products, what's not to love?! The only clincher is that as it stands, they're only available from Sephora in the US.

It's that time of year where short sleeves at the very least are the norm almost daily; the sun has been coming and going here in Dublin but, the humidity has been a constant so, not many of us have been covering up. This month and August are honestly probably the only months of the year that I regularly fake tan - I don't mind being pale at all but when I'm in a t-shirt daily it's nice to at least attempt a bit of a healthy glow.
