Hairspray Extensions

So as you can probably see my dear readers, I've gone and popped my hair-extension cherry..... and I must admit I've got the weave fever. I wont be wearing them every day now (erm- effort!) but for shoots and special occasions, this clip-in set is just divine. The lovely ladies at Hairspray Ireland were extremely helpful, and Im delighted with the results. I was so eager to shoot with them when, that myself and byron just had to have a little mess around with his camera... What do you guys think?
 In other news, I've been rather busy lately with modeling work! I had the pleasure of shooting for Movember Ireland last week, a fantastic organisation & cause, along with the wonderful Tanith, and a few mustache-clad hunks... (its a tough job, but someone's gotta do it eh?) Haven't gotten the photos back to show you guys yet, but stay tuned, I'll throw them up as soon as I get my grubby mitts on them :D
 Took a wee trip up to Dublin on Tuesday (which included having to get up at the ungodly hour of SIX) to shoot with the very talented Gerry Mooney for a very exciting feature that the Sunday Independent will be running on me in the coming weeks.... Seriously pinching myself every time I say that... What is my life these days?!
Anyhow, Next up was a press shoot on Wednesday for the Vintage Frock & Crock Sale, a great christmas event thats coming up in Galway, which I will be posting more on soon!
Here's one of the shots that was in The Galway Advertiser Today:

Makeup was done by the lovely Makeup by Flora, Headpiece supplied by Hats of Oliver, and vintage dress was Cotton Face Vintage, both of which will be selling their wares at the Frock & Crock Sale! And there's more news to come yet my darlings, but lets leave that for another blog post shall we, I'm sure you've had enough of my ramblings for one evening.


Moroccan Magic

So I never really do beauty posts, mainly because I like to leave that to the experts, (you know who you are guys!) but there is one product I bought recently that is so good I just HAVE to share with you all!

and that product is.... ((drum roll please)) Moroccan Oil!

Doesn't look like much does it? Ok, so it doest score any points on the packaging, but hey, it's what inside that counts right?! This is pure 100% Argan Oil, or Moroccan Oil, as we like to call it here.
I had been intrigued by all the recent buzz about the amazing beauty benefits of Moroccan Oil, and was aware of the some salon brands that contained certain amounts of Moroccan Oil and were said to be brilliant, but the price tag deterred me. Being the shameless eBay hound that I am, I decided to go to the source and try to find some pure, unrefined form of it on the net. This cost me roughly €8, including shipping (which was free I think) and is actually bought via a seller from Israel, one of the regions in which the Moroccan Oil is derived. Local produce at its best!

I use a small amount (only a few drops) as a treatment on the ends of my hair after showering, when its towel dried, and leave it to soak in for as long as I like. Its not even that greasy, and after blow drying all traces of it are usually gone. Although I wouldn't recommend using it before a night out, its still very lightweight and non-greasy, and the difference in the ends of my hair was visible after only a few uses. My hair had been taking a bit of a beating recently, mostly due to the different modeling work I was getting, al that backcombing, heat and product use was starting to take its toll, it was really in need of some TLC.
Thankfully this Moroccan Oil really does the trick, and for an amazing price!

I just had to share it with you guys :)

I'll leave the eBay link in case anyone's interested, you'll be supporting a small Israeli seller!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!
