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

First Impressions: Bbold Xtra Dark Mousse

Hello Everyone

Finally I am back with a new post I know it’s been a while but things have been a little crazy. Anyways I thought I’d do a post today on yet another tan because as we all know tanning is one of my favourite things to do and trying out different tans is also a fave of mine.

Bbold tan has always been a fave of mine and so many people have always said to me it’s one of their favourites. It’s quick and easy to apply and leaves a really nice glow on your skin. If you guys follow me on Instagram you’ll know I headed to the Bbold Xtra Dark Mousse launch a couple of weeks ago which is how I got to try out this new version of their tan.

With this sunny weather we’ve been having recently I always want to have my skin looking sunkissed although I do tan really easily in the sun a layer or two of fake tan never hurt nobody right?

As this is an Xtra Dark Mousse as you can imagine yes it is a Dark Tan and is obviously the darkest in the range. Personally I love a Dark Tan so I’d always reach for a dark shade bottle. Normally I apply a layer of tan before bed and then I wash it off the next morning which is what I do when using this one to. Being completely honest when I applied the first layer of this tan I absolutely loved it it showed up instantly and looked perfect even when it had developed the next morning it looked fab. Now I did wash it off and I found that it wasn’t so dark after I had rinsed it off BUT I just applied a second layer over it and all was good. If your looking for a Dark Tan then I would probably say don’t wash it off that might sound strange to some people but for me with this tan it worked best to get that xtra dark look in saying that it still looks fab after rinsing off but for me I just wanted it that but darker.

As this tan is formulated to improve skin moisture levels by 56% I did find that my skin still felt hydrated even after applying the tan there was no dry patches or sticky feel. I found this tan blended in really well into my skin and I was left with no streaks which is always a bonus. It also fades really naturally and didn’t come of in bits and pieces like some tans normally would this one fades really evenly.

I’ve been using this tan for a couple of weeks now and I really do find it great as the weather has been so good recently I’ve even worn the tan in the sea and it still looks so natural afterwords. If your looking for a dark tan I would definitely recommend checking this one out it is available in most pharmacies around the country and is also available online direct from the Bbold website for €16.94

Let me know if any of you guys try out this tan or have tried it out already what are your thoughts are on it?

Hope you all have a lovely week

Much Love,

L’ORÉAL Rebel Push Up Review

Hi Everyone,

First of all Happy Monday I hope your all recovering from the weekend and are ready to start a new fresh week

Today I’m doing a quick review of a hair product I have been obsessed with recently.

Over the past few weeks now I have been using the Loreal Rebel Push Up texturizing mousse to give my hair an extra bit of volume. From using this product I’ve definitely seen a difference in my hair. As my hair is quite long at the moment and is also very thick, being honest I had doubts that this product just wouldn’t take to my hair but it did and I’m so happy it’s worked for me.

To explain the product a little bit more Here’s how I use it:

As this is a ‘texturizing powder in mousse’ I like to apply it to wet/damp hair. Normally once I’ve had my shower , towel dried and brushed my hair I like to apply a palm sized amount of the product into my hair. For me I apply it to my roots first and work my way down through my hair (which is probably not what a lot do but I just like having it all over my hair from top to bottom)

Once I have applied the product to my hair I then like to get my hair dryer and dry my hair fully as I find this works best for extra volume and once my hair is completely dry I then like to style it in the way I want it to.

As I mentioned this is a ‘texturizing powder in mousse’ so I’m sure a lot of you are thinking what even is a powder in mousse?

Well unlike a normal mousse this one acts like a powder once in your hair so it feels almost like a dry shampoo in your hair, it gives volume but your hair still looks perfect and is easy to style and brush.

Actually here’s a tip I figured out while messing around with this product. I find this product actually keeps curls in really well so basically I recently curled my hair (after using this product of course) and headed out but completely forgot to put hairspray in to hold my curls. Normally I would need a lot of hairspray to keep my curls from falling out but I’m honestly convinced this product actually helped to keep them in place and didn’t give my hair that awful sticky feeling to it. I have tried it purposely again since and the same things it held my curls perfectly in place. So along with some extra volume you can also have some perfectly in place curls.

I’ve also of course straightened my hair after using this product and it definitely gives it’s a nice extra bit of volume to the look.

I am obsessed with using this product and I think it’s going to be perfect for trying out different styles over the summer.

You can buy this product Here from feel unique where they currently have it at 15% off so you can purchase it for €15.30

It comes in a 250ml bottle so it’s definitely on sale at great value at the moment.

That’s it for today,

Much Love,

My Updated Skincare Routine – Reform Skincare

Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. For today’s post I wanted to share with you 2 skincare products I have recently been obsessed with. I love to keep my skin looking its best so trying out new products to keep my skin at its best is what I always do. My skincare routine is constantly changing, for the better of course.

Recently I was sent some products from Reform Skincare which is a brand I had not used before until now. The products I received where the Glycolic Acid Foaming Cleanser and the Hyal Vitamin C+E Serum.

The Glycolic Acid Foaming Cleanser is a dream. I use this daily after I have removed my makeup. I have recently been using the Penneys Makeup remover wipes (yes I know i hate using makeup wipes BUT…) I find that by applying the Cleanser after it removes any access makeup and doesn’t leave my skin feeling as dry or irritated like makeup wipes usually do. This cleanser can be used daily to cleanse, exfoliate and improve skin texture. It is also suitable for all skin types. If you have been following me for a while now you will know i have really sensitive skin but I’ve had no reactions or irritation from using this product.

To use this product I normally apply a generous amount into the palm of my hand and then massage onto my face in circular motions. I then rinse it off with some warm water and using a face cloth I pat my skin dry.

Now this brand of skincare is a bit more on the expensive side. This Cleanser can be bought Here for €28.99 which I know is not in everyone’s budget but from my experience it has helped to clear up my skin a lot and leaves it feeling really soft and refreshed.

Moving onto the Hyal Vitamin C+E Serum (which is probably my favourite product out of the 2 if I’m being honest) this serum fights free radicals, brightens and evens skin tone and is also super antioxidant.

A little bit goes a long way with this product for sure. Using the dropper I normally apply about 4/5 drops of the product onto my face after I have used the Cleanser (and waited for my face to completely dry)

I normally apply this at night time just before I hop into bed so it is the last thing I use at night. This products has definitely helped reduce the redness in my skin and has also kept my skin looking great for the past 6 weeks of using it!

I find I have had less breakouts on my face since I’ve began using these products and I definitely feel such a difference once I have put on the serum. At first it makes my skin feel quite tight but after a minute or two my skin feels so smooth and even looks more alive almost instantly. As I said I like to use this at night time as I find it can then work on my skin overnight so it’s prefect the next morning.

As I did mention earlier this brand is quite expensive and won’t be in everyone’s budget which is totally understandable. This serum can be bought Here for €80 which in my opinion is a little steep for a tiny bottle of 30ml but it does do a great job on the skin and I’ve been using mine every night for about 6 weeks now and I’m not even half way through the bottle.

I definitely would recommend looking into this skincare brand if you haven’t before as the cater for all types of skin and have a HUGE range of skincare products etc which I definitely will pick some other things up from the range to try out.

That’s it for today

Why Pureology Hydrate Superfood treatment is my new favourite hair product

Hi everyone

Now I don’t know about you but myself anyway I don’t tend to reach for hair masks that often I don’t really know why I guess I just never really gave them a chance. Recently I’ve been trying out this new product from Pureology and I thought I’d share it with you all.

Today I’m doing a quick review on the Pureology Hydrate Superfoods Treatment which is basically a hair mask. As I’ve mentioned I’ve never really been a fan of hair masks but this one I just really wanted to try out. Here’s a little background on the product to fill you in on what it’s all about:

Pureology Hydrate Superfoods Treatment nourishes dry hair with the wonders of superfoods. Pureology’s 100% vegan treatment masks are packed with lots of essential nutrients to moisturize and soften your hair leaving it more manageable and of course looking it’s best. The Coconut Oil in this product adds moisture and strength while the Avocado Oil provides deep nourishment and moisture, leaving your hair looking healthy and hydrated. This is also a Silicone-free formula and AntiFade complex so it actually helps protect colour treated hair.

As my hair is dyed I’m always a bit hesitant to trying new hair products as I’m afraid it will strip the colour from my hair. This product is said to help protect colour treated hair and I can assure you it sticks to its word. I’ve used this product a few times now and honestly my hair looks and feels even better then before. It feels really healthy as my hair is blonde so dead/dry ends is common with me and I’m swearing that this product has helped get my hair in good condition over the past couple of weeks as it’s the only product (bar shampoo and conditioner obviously) that I’ve used in my hair my normal shampoo and conditioner routine hasn’t changed. I find it’s even easier to style my hair too. I would totally recommend using this product if you suffer with dry and damaged hair, maybe you dye your hair often and it needs a bit of TLC this product will for sure help you out.

Some benefits of using this product:

• Leaves your hair hydrated and vibrant

• Avocado Oil provides moisture and helps to strengthen hair

• Coconut Oil hydrates the hair and scalp

• It’s Silicone-free

• This product is 100% Vegan

• Antifade Complex

How to use:

To use this product just Shampoo your hair as normal then Apply a quarter sized amount of the Superfood Vitality Treatment to wet and freshly shampooed hair. Wait for 5 minutes while the superfoods treat the hair. Then Rinse.

(I would recommend using a hair mask while your taking a bath. So if you wash your hair first then apply the hair mask you can sit back and relax for those 5 minutes in a nice warm bubbly bath before rinsing the product out to reveal perfect hair.)

I use this product once a week as I find that works best for me. I really feel the colour in my hair and appearance of my hair looks 100 times better since using this product. It’s made styling it so simple and it even keeps my hair straighter for longer. I think it could be my new favourite hair product.

I honestly am such a fan of this product (I really didn’t think I would be)

From someone who never really bothered with hair masks I feel like I could try lots of different ones now as this one has just exceeded its expectations with me.

If your looking to purchase the Pureology Superfoods Hairmask it is available at Cult Beauty and in Peter Mark stores nationwide. It’s really affordable too at €25 a pot which will last you months.

That’s it for today! Let me know what your favourite hair masks/treatments are? I’d love to know

Much Love,

Formula 10.0.6 Skincare- REVIEW

Hey Everyone!

I’m sure everyone is now well back to reality after the festive season I know I am but one thing for me that’s been letting me down over the holidays is my skin. My skin has been really bad lately if I’m honest and it’s been even hard to cover it up with makeup. I’m putting it down to eating so much rubbish over the entire month of December.

A couple of weeks back I was sent some products from a brand called Formula 10.0.6 and I completely forgot I had them until I went looking for some products to sort my skin out. I tried them out once or twice over Christmas but not enough to see if they actually made a difference to my skin so over the weekend I put them to the rest properly.

For the past 5 days I’ve been using the Seriously Shine Free Mattifying oil free moisturizer in the mornings to keep my skin looking well all day long and each evening I’ve been using the Thirst No More Moisturizer after I take off my makeup to keep my skin feeling really hydrated. I really have found a difference in my skin the redness has reduced, my acne is clearing up and my skin feels so fresh and AMAZING!!!!

Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer

This is a matte finish Moisturizer so it keeps the skin smooth and Shine Free all day long which is why I would use this in the mornings before I apply my makeup. I like to just use a small amount of the product as a little bit goes along way. I really love how this product contains aloe vera as aloe vera is a favourite ingredient of mine and I find it does wonders for my skin.

Thirst No More Moisturizer

This is a powerful Moisturizer and contains a natural complex combination of watermelon, lentil and apple extracts (I think that sounds absolutely divine) I find it’s best to use this Moisturizer after I remove my makeup to give my skin a bit of a lift and make it feel hydrated and fresh again. I find by using this in the evenings my skin feels and looks great when I wake up in the mornings. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and it has a nice natural radiant glow to it.

I also received some samples of the

Down to the pore blackhead pore strips which I was really happy about. I like to use pore strips every now and again (I would not use them all the time) I like the fact that pore strips remove dirt deep down in the skin and it always leaves my skin feeling like new, smooth and fresh. Being honest I haven’t tried these pore strips (YET) but I have used pore strips from other brands and if these ones are as good as their Moisturizers well then HAPPY DAYS!!!

Along with the pore strips I received some samples of their mud masks. I received the Deep Down Detox ultra cleansing mud mask and the Pores be Pure skin clarifying mud mask again I haven’t had a chance to try these out but I’m sure they will be amazing.

I’m so glad I have discovered this brand it is definitely one I will be using from now on. I find it really has cleared up my skin and this is only the first week I’m so excited to see how I get on more with these products. The best thing is this brand is super affordable too with the Moisturizer only €7!!!!!
