Happy Friday 🙂 Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend! I sure am!! I’ve been soooo busy this week, between feeling unwell, filming with Xposé’s for my Closet Clear-Out (I know exciting right?!) and attending events… it’s been hectic!!!
But it’s Friday, and I’m meeting my hubby and friends in town this evening for dinner & drinks and looking forward to a nice relaxing evening 🙂
So I received an invitation to attend this event which was to Celebrate Vaseline Through the Ages, and I have to say, I had an absolutely amazing evening with my best pal, meeting new friends, and having lots of giggles!
Did you know that Vaseline is going since 1870!!! We have also been using it for over 145 years to give us softer lips!
Vaseline has so many uses, and is a great little product to have in with your beauty products. Here is 10 of my favourite uses :
1- The obvious – use it as a lipgloss & for chapped lips
2- Put a coat on your eyelashes before going to bed – lots of people swear by this and say it will make your lashes grow longer and thicker over time
3- Applying a small bit of Vaseline on your lips when wearing lipstick will prevent lipstick on your teeth
4- A make up remover – Seriously!
5- used around your cuticles when painting your nails to prevent and polish getting on your skin
6- Mix it with a powder blusher to make a creme blusher
7- Can be used as a highlighter on your cheekbones after applying make-up for a dewy look
8- Tames wild eyebrows
9- Removes False Eyelash Glue from your lash line
10- Use in the ends of dry and damaged hair as a treatment
I took my friend Orla along to the event as my plus one (she literally stalks me to take her places 😉 haha kidding) and we arrived at the Morgan Hotel a little early, so we decided to pop into the bar and have a little drinkie (non-alcoholic of course as Orla is pregnant and I was driving) before heading up to The Penthouse.
We then headed up to The Penthouse, and wow, it was so gorgeous, there was a station set up to have your nails done, prosecco laid out on the table with fruit, and then upstairs you could get your hair done in a vintage updo, get some eyelash extension, make up, and then pop into the Camper Van for a cocktail ❤
When we went upstairs the first person I bumped into was the lovely Jennifer
From Matte To Metallic and her pal Emma, and Jen had just had her hair done and she looked amazing! I couldn’t help but scope out her Make Up and wow, she is so talented! Her make up was FAB!!! Check out their Facebook Page Here

Two Lovely Ladies – Emma & Jennifer
Myself and Orla headed over to the ‘beauty salon’ section and decided to get something done with our hairs! It was great sitting down to be pampered and the girls done a great job on both our little updo’s 🙂
After a few little treatments we went back to Jen & Emma and chit chatted the night away and mingled with all the other guests and just had such a laugh. We even talked the barman I to letting us inside the Cocktail Camper Van for an oul snap 🙂
Great night had by all and met some amazingly talented people that I have been following for a long time and loved them all!
When we were leaving we got a beautiful gift bag loaded with all the Vaseline Moisturisers ❤ The one with Aleo Vera smells Devine!!!
Now onto my OOTD, lots of queries on my shoes! I got the shoes over 2 years ago on EBay, for around €15 if my memory serves me correctly.. They were brand new in the box and the seller had a few to sell, I literally got one of the last few and absolutely adore them! They go with so much and are so comfortable with the little wedge heel!
