The perfect at home hair treatment💆🏻

  

Hi guys, a very happy Sunday to you all! 

As it is a bank holiday weekend I thought I would share with you all my at home hair treatment mask which I have been using myself the past few weeks and which I also shared over on my snapchat recently (TheStyleShaper1). It was a complete hit with all of my lovely followers, so I am bringing it to you now! 

I have to say it is one of the most effective hair treatments I have ever used, to the extent that it has completely riddled my hair of dry scalp and leaves an unbelievable shine on the hair.

For the treatment you will need just three ingredients as follows;

Ingredients 

  • Honey ( preferably from your local area)
  • Whole milk
  • Any conditioner ( I like to use the Aussie as its my favourite)

     
Amount

  • 2 teaspoons of honey (add more if you have long/thicker hair
  • Dash of milk
  • Good squeeze of conditioner (this takes away from the sticky honey and leaves the hair feeling softer) 


What to do…

Mix all the ingredients together and apply to the hair, massaging into the scalp and down onto the ends of the hair. If you feel you need more of the treatment to cover, just whisk up a little more! Leave this in the hair for a good 20 minutes and then rinse out. 

When you have rinsed it out, continue on with shampooing and conditioning your hair as normal. 

  

So guys and gals that is how it’s done! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me on any of my social media platforms;

My Laser Hair consultation with Sam McCauleys beauty salon, Carlow

  

  
Hello everyone and a very happy new year, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and have eased into the new year nicely! 

As my first post of the new year, I am bringing you guys a series of posts which will include an update every six weeks of my Laser Hair Removal with the amazing Sam McCauleys beauty salon in the Fairgreen shopping centre Carlow.

I recently had my FREE consultation done with the lovely Nikita in the salon which may I say was a treat as I was a little bit nervous, I suppose because laser is something I would never have considered before talking with the ladies in the salon and seeing the amazing results after just 6 treatments. 

Read below to find out all there is to know about this mind blowing treatment available from Sam McCauleys and how I got on with my free consultation! 

  

What is laser hair removal…

Laser hair removal is a safe, effective and commonly used treatment, providing optimal results in the removal of unwanted hair. Lasers work by delivering an intense beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair which is converted to heat effectively destroying the hair shaft, while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. 

Why I am having the treatment…

I decided to have the laser hair removal treatment done on the bottom part of my legs as I suppose it’s every girls dream not having to shave her legs! Who agrees?! 

I thought that coming into the Summer time and not having to hide my lower leg, worrying about stubble if I had forgotten to shave and also a big part of my decision for the laser hair removal was to feel good about having my legs out and about.

Being a part of the ever growing fashion industry and also having my blog, I am always conjuring up new ideas, outfits, looks, and as we are approaching the Summer season it means cropped trousers, skirts, culottes and dresses which in return means hairy legs are out!

  
 
My FREE consultation…

On Tuesday I had my free consultation and patch test with Nikita who is my laser hair removal specialist. The consultation went extremely well which I was delighted with.

A consultation and patch test is required with laser hair removal to ensure you are compatible to laser.

I was brought in to one of many lovely rooms at Sam McCauleys beauty salon. Nikita explained all the information I needed to know including how the laser works, about the top rated Candela laser machine, preparation, aftercare and the FAQs which put me at ease as I didn’t know what to expect! 

  
As part of the consultation, I had a small patch test done on one area of my leg as to see would I have any reaction (which is quite rare) to the laser itself. This consisted of having the small area cleansed and then zapped twice with the laser beam. 

What I love about the Candela machine they use in Sam McCauleys is that it shoots out a blast of coolant before the laser beam, so you literally can’t feel a thing! It was done and I didn’t even realise! This feature on the Candela gives greater patient comfort and safety which in return gives greater results.

All laser hair removal consultations are completely FREE with Sam McCauleys in the Fairgreen shopping centre Carlow. You can book your free consultation via the website – http://www.sammccauleys.com and go to the ‘Beauty Salon Bookings’ section or call in store at the Fairgreen shopping centre Carlow. 

  

My treatment plan…

To achieve maximum and completely satisfactory results with laser hair removal it is advised to have a total of six treatments. I will be having the six treatments done with a six week gap between each treatment. 

I will then have a review which will determine if I need another one or two treatments within a year to target any areas on the leg which are coarser than others. (This may not be needed) 

When with your therapist, you can discuss cost along with a payment plan that suits you which is another fantastic plus to having laser done with Sam McCauleys. 

For my complete six treatments the total cost is €585 which isn’t a lot when you consider having hair free legs forever! I have also worked with the girls and we have drawn up payment plan which makes life so much easier. 

 
 
  Frequently asked questions…

  • Are laser treatments safe? Yes, laser treatments have been used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. Candela, the most trusted name in the industry, has pioneered the development of some of the safest and most effective technologies and products available on the market today. 


  • What will my treatment be like? You and your therapist will wear safety glasses to protect your eyes during the procedure. The therapist will use a small hand piece that touches your skin to deliver the light. You will feel a light spray of coolant on your skin before each laser pulse.


  • How long will my treatment take and how many treatments will I need? Every treatment, like every client is unique. Consult your therapist to decide what is the best for you based on your needs and expectations. A minimum of 6 treatments is generally recommended depending on the area to be treated.


  • What precautions should I take before or after my treatment? In general, avoid sun exposure for 2-4 weeks before treatment and again after treatment until your therapist allows it. Care should be taken in the first few days following your treatment. Avoid scrubbing and rinsing the treated area with abrasive skin cleanser. Consult your therapist for specific precautions that relate to your individualised treatment plan.


  • Are there any adverse side-effects to laser treatments? Most procedures have a low risk of adverse side effects. Some patients experience pigment changes in the skin colour. If this occurs, the skin will typically return to normal pigmentation over time. All treatment results are individual.


  • Is my laser treatment covered by my medical insurance? Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. However, consult your therapist for more information. 


  • What is the next step? The first step is a FREE consultation and patch test to ensure that you are compatible to laser. Cost discussion and a payment plan will be organised for you at Sam McCauleys. 


So guys and gals I hope you have found this post interesting and educational on the laser hair removal front. Don’t forget if you are in anyway interested in having laser hair removal done, don’t hesitate to book in your FREE consultation! 

Stay fabulous,

What came next was fantastic! We watched an amazing fashion show from upstairs in Yindees, which meant we had a birdseye view of the show which was being hosted by the fabulous Marissa Carter. It was my first time to meet Marissa, and oh my goodness, what an amazing woman she is. 

The fashion show kicked off with amazing pieces of clothing and accessories from boutiques around Kilkenny, including Lola Rose and the Kilkenny design centre.

Irish Blogging Conference Cork – What I Wore

  

  
Hello everyone, and a very happy Friday!

Apologies for the delay on this post as I know a lot of you have been asking me questions on the outfit which I wore for the Irish blogging conference which was held in Cork last weekend. 

  
Firstly I want to say what a weekend it was! We had the ultimate ‘lols’ all day long with some extremely inspirational speakers. To say I came away with being totally inspired along with some excellent tips and tricks would be an understatement, but unfortunately I came home with a flu which I wasn’t that happy about, but hey it’s that time of the year! 

Today I am going to share with you the details of each item I wore on the day. I know a lot of you have been lusting over the knee high lace-up boots I wore so keep on scrolling!!!

 
Outfit details – 

  
As the conference was being held in the Clarion Hotel Cork, we decided to stay the night before. I initially intended on wearing a black swing dress but found this little number in none other than Penneys the morning of the conference on a stroll around cork. 

Hair and make-up – 

My hair was simply curled using a hair straightener, and my make up I done myself. I used my trusty old products and for the lip I used the Penneys/Primark lip liner all over the lip which may I say is amazing and lasts!  

Dress – 

The dress I wore is from Penneys/Primark and don’t kill me, but I honestly can’t remember how much it was! It came in this print along with some other plain colours. I loved the print and style of the dress as it sat perfectly at the top of the boots.

  
Sleeveless Blazer – 

I’ve had this sleeveless blazer for quite a while now as when they first came on the scene, I had to have one! This one in particular is from Boohoo.com and was no more than €20. I thought it added that extra little something to the outfit, but also brought the look together as a whole. 

  
Hat – 

My “blogging” hat as Mr.James Kavanagh would call it is from none other than Penneys/Primark. It was €10 and comes in lots of different shades.

  

Knees high lace-up boots – 

So last but by no means least….the god dang boots!!! I have been looking for a pair of these boots since last year when they first became popular in outfit posts. I searched and searched for a pair which were not expensive as you know me, the better the bargain the better the buy! So while scrolling on Boohoo.com one day about three weeks ago I stumbled upon these beauties!! Guys they were JUST €49!!! I lasted all day in them as they are super comfy and have the perfect heel height. 

  
So guys and gals that is all the datials on my look for the blogging conference! Pretty simple and not expensive at all! 

Don’t forget to head over to my Instagram (Jennifer_carolan21) for all updates on my blog, all things fashion, ootd’s and slimming world!

The Style Shaper reviews – Emjoi MICRO-nail and MICRO-Pedi Nano

  
  
A huge hello to everyone and happy Sunday!

Over the past two weeks I have had the absolute pleasure of trying out the MICRO-nail and MICRO-Pedi Nano from the fabulous company Lifes2Good, which is distributed by Irish company Emjoi and I have the perfect post for you all to read which will ensure you have beautiful shiny nails and perfectly soft feet in seconds! 

Throughout this post I will explain to you how each product works, what it achieves and where you can find your nearest stockist! Most of the following personal review pictures are my own as I wanted to show you exactly how well both products work and give results! So in turn, be prepared for some foot selfies😉

So guys and gals, if you long for fabulous feet and a super glow to your nail surface which lasts two amazing weeks, then keep on scrolling to see how I achieved an amazing at home manicure and pedicure using these two fab products! 

The MICRO-Nail

  

Firstly I just want to say WOW to this product! I am always that little bit sceptical when it comes to nails as I adore having my nails done professionally, but this may just have converted me!

MICRO Nail is designed to transform dull and rough looking nails, so much so that you have a beautiful smooth and shiny nail surface in just seconds! The device will do absolutely no damage to the nail bed or surrounding areas of the nail like the cuticles. 

My first impressions of the product were fantastic! The MICRO Nail device itself is the perfect size for an at home manicure or if you are travelling and on the go which is perfect to just pop in your bag. 

The MICRO Nail comes with two ‘Micro smooth’ rollers which are green in colour and are designed to buff the nail, which will take away any uneven ridges and reduce the apearence of dull nails along with unevenness to the nail. It also comes with two ‘Micro shine’ rollers which is the amazing part! They are white in colour and while working over the nail with the shiner, in just seconds you can see an amazing result. A shiny, healthy beautiful nail.

One thing that I loved most about the product was the fact that the shine lasts an amazing two weeks and acts as an undercoat for nail polish, so after using the MICRO Nail you can apply your favourite red or pink polish and be left with no stains on the nail bed afterwards.

The MICRO Nail also comes equipped with 2 batteries as it is a battery operated product, a replacement smooth and shine roller and a small pouch for storing the smaller pieces. If you feel your rollers have worn down, replacement rollers are available to purchase separately.

  

As I mentioned above, I tried out the product two weeks ago and to this day my nail is still gleaming! I started off by using the MICRO Nail on my hands and was wowed by the immediate results.

I then used the MICRO Nail on my toe nails and was just as pleased with the results.  
So as you can see above this is how the product looks once you take it from its packaging. The batteries are included, so you simply flick open the top of the MICRO Nail and place your batteries in. One of the ‘Micro smooth’ rollers comes ready to go, you just have to remove the plastic cover and your ready to buff those nails beautiful! 

I had my gel nails removed to try this product so my own nails are not in the best looking condition as you can all imagine, but I am super glad I did have them removed because the results from the MICRO Nail were fantastic, and my nails are now growing evenly and with a beautiful shine. I’m just totally amazed by it!

Here is a short video to show how I used the product.

  
   
                         Before                                                   After

I also used the MICRO Nail on a family member as they couldn’t believe my result! 

   
              Before                                During                                 After

Here is a short video of the result after buffing and shining the nail.

  
So as you can see from the above pictures, the results are phenomenal. I honestly couldn’t believe the amazing change to my nails that can be achieved at home in just two minutes! 

Would I recommend this product?

Absolutely! I have fallen in love with this and look forward to using it on my nails and toenails in the future. I would recommend the MICRO Nail to everyone who loves going for a manicure or who longs being able to achieve salon results in the comfort of their homes. 

Price point – The MICRO Nail was €49.95 BUT is currently on special offer for €29.95.


The MICRO Pedi Nano

  

I have to say, I was very excited to try the Micro Pedi Nano, I mean who doesn’t want fabulous soft feet in seconds?!

The Micro Pedi Nano has just been launched and is the perfect size to carry with you on your travels and is super compact so that you can just pop it into your bag.

The MICRO Pedi Nano is designed to give you gorgeous smooth feet in seconds, and that my friends is exactly what it does! I couldn’t believe the difference to certain parts of my feet when I first started using the device. 

My first impressions of the product were amazing! I remember whispering to myself “oh my goodness” as I couldn’t believe how much hard and dry skin had been removed in the first few seconds.

I also like the fact that the roller on the MICRO Pedi Nano is anti-bacterial, which is a new feature and also how safe it is to use in comparison to other metal scrapers or files. 

The MICRO Pedi Nano requires 2 AA batteries, comes with an anti-bacterial Flex+ roller which is very effective on hard areas but is gentle and wont damage the foot. It is available in three gorgeous colours to choose from – pink, blue and orange. 

Below is what the MICRO Pedi Nano looks like when you take it from its box, and also comes with a small brush to brush away the excess skin when using the product.

  
  
Above are the replacement rollers which are also available to purchase separately if you feel your roller has worn down a bit and are €14.95 to buy. 

 
So as you can see from the above left picture, I had hard and dry skin on the backs of my heels which I think is the most problematic area for everyone who is on their feet all day. 

  
                Before                                During                                After

I also had hard skin on the side of my big toe, and over onto the ball of my foot. The results were fantastic as you can see from the ‘after’ picture, and it took just 2-3 minutes to achieve this. 

Would I recommend this product?

A big fat YES!! If you suffer from dry and hard skin on your feet and are looking for effortlessly smooth and beautiful feet in just minutes, then this is definitely the product for you! I honestly can’t recommend the MICRO Pedi Nano enough as it is so easy to use and achieve amazing results. There is also a MICRO Pedi Man available. 

Price point – The MICRO pedi Nano was €39.95 BUT is on special at the moment for €29.95. 


Where to find these amazing products – 

All products are available either on their own or in a set from the following;

http://www.micronail.ie

http://www.micropedi.ie

Carlow area stockists 

  • Sam McCauleys Chemist
  • Whites Pharmancy

<And surrounding areas>

So guys and gals, I hope you have enjoyed this review on both products. I would highly recommend both for easy at home manicures and pedicures.

Stay fabulous and happy pampering,

   


 


The Style Shaper Winter Picks – ‘Coats and Capes’ from River Island 

  
Hello Everyone💕

Happy Fri-yay🌟  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend💕

The last few days I have been lusting over some absolutely fabulous winter pieces from the high street. To say River Island have got it in the bag yet again would be an understatement as their collection for Autumn/Winter is stunning! 

Let’s face it, Ireland is going to be freezing as always so I thought I would focus solely on coats, capes and also the sleeveless jacket as they are making a huge appearance in most high street collections for winter. 

Here are my favourite coats and capes from River Island which I think you will all love, also don’t hate me because I am showing you winter pieces!! I know we haven’t even got our summer yet🙈☺️

   
 How STUNNING are these sleeveless trench jackets? They remind me of something Kim K would wear! I love the burnt orange colour which would be fab over a shirt or blouse. If you wanted to go for a more casual look, this over a long tee would work great. They come in at €100, but are a timeless piece to keep in your wardrobe to carry you through the changeable seasons.

  
I’m a sucker when it comes to light colours and pastel shades. Both types here carry a beautiful faux fur collar which is an added bonus if you ask me! Fur has become so popular for winter in the last few years and these two pieces are just perfect! The beige sleeveless gilet comes in at €65, which I don’t think is that bad for a beautiful piece, and the grey ribbed jacket comes in at €73.

  
Let’s just take a minute………….. How fab is this brown belted shearling jacket? I think it looks so expensive and cape like! This one comes in at €80, which I had to look at twice as I thought it would cost a hell of a lot more!! The black one beside it is also a bit of a bargain at €60 which again you wouldn’t think for such a sleek looking jacket. Both are belted, the black one being sleeveless.

  
FUR AND FEATHER ALERT (faux that is)

I love both of these gilets. The first one being that little bit more daring and out there, the one to the right is more gentle in terms of its beige colour and overall appearance. The beige gilet is actually feathers, and does look quite fur like which comes in at €87. The brown faux fur gilet is that bit more expensive and comes in at €90! 

  
I mentioned this grey half fur sleeveless jacket on my Instagram and Facebook page recently! I think it’s so smart, but also bang on trend. It comes in at a whopping €100, but I definitely think it’s worth the price tag! To the left is a great jersey longline sleeveless jacket which would be so simple to dress either up or down. It comes in at €73, but you could also purchase a less expensive faux fur collar and place it around the neck area to change up your look.

  

 
Love these two coats. You honestly can’t go wrong with black or black and white! Both pieces will work incredibly well whether it’s dressing a look up or down. The black and white one I noticed has just come back into stock so there has obviously been a huge demand for it – it comes in at €67 which is fantastic for a River Island coat! It also carries a beautiful faux leather look collar for that extra little effect. The black crombie coat comes in at €120 which is that little bit more pricey, but for a classic piece you couldn’t go wrong! 

  
Cape loving!!! Check out these star buys. I have to say I am loving capes at the minute! I purchased one already and have it sitting ready to be worn! These two again are quite different in terms of price as to the right is a brown laser cut fringed suede one which comes in at €127 and the black faux suede leather look one which comes in at €55. Both I think are stunning, it just depends on what you want to spend on a piece.
 

I couldn’t leave without a little bit of leather! Just look at them!! A leather jacket is an essential piece to carry in your wardrobe! 

Now I have to put my hands up and say there is a huge price difference between the two of these leather jackets. I honestly thought the one with the fur would come in a lot more pricier but I was wrong! Yes, one is 100% leather and the other a leather-look jacket! 

To the right – a leather look jacket with a removable faux fur collar which comes in at €87

To the left – a fitted 100% leather biker jacket which comes in at €160 – but don’t let the price tag scare you as you will have a leather jacket forever!

So guys and gals, they are my fave picks from the River Island new season collection for winter. I hope you enjoyed a sneak peak at them!
All of the above items are available online at RiverIsland.com and I am sure will be appearing in your nearest store soon! 

Stay Fab all,

I have also had a few people ask about the hotel which we stayed in. It was called the Palmin Sunset Plaza and was just fabulous! Talking to a few people over there, it was by far one of the nicer hotels. The rooms, hotel, facilities, staff, food and entertainment team were superb and we didn’t have one thing to complain about!

A sneak peak into the Primark A/W collection 2015

   
Hi guys! 

So, I know our Summer has just landed, but so has the Autumn/Winter collections for most high street stores.

Today I am going to share with you a sneaky peak at some of the pieces that were shown at the Primark press day yesterday to give you all an idea of what’s in store for your winter wardrobes from none other than (my fave) Primark/Penneys!!!

I just want to say that Primark have without a doubt upped they’re game big time! This collection is by far one of the best I have seen produced. 

Please excuse the lack of writing in this post as I don’t know as of yet the price range for any of the items, therefore this post will consist mostly of pictures for you to lust over!

Enjoy!
