The Christmas Collective at Kildare Village Gives Allsun The Festive Feels!

Christmas Collective at Kildare Village

Not only is Kildare Village one of my favourite festive venues over the Christmas period, it’s also one of the best places to get things ticked off your Christmas list. I headed out last Friday to experience the magic of their Christmas Collective, which is open from now until Christmas Eve.

This seasonal pop-up houses a plethora of gift ideas that celebrate Irish design. Excitingly, it offers a bespoke design station where you can get a range of gifts personalised for that special someone.

5 Favourite (Affordable) Nude Lipsticks: Rimmel, L'Oreal Paris, Maybelline...

Purple Lips for Autumn/Winter: Trend on Trial

It won’t surprise you to hear that, round here, we’re big lovers of lipstick. Nudes, reds, pinks, autumnal browns…oh yes, we love ‘em all. But turns out there’s one major beauty autumn trend, that rolls around each year, that the three of us tend to avoid. Deep purple vampy lips, it transpires, are outside each of our comfort zones. But for the sake of the blog and our readers we’ve womaned up and tried out the trend. Here’s how we got on…and completely coincidentally (as in, this post is not sponsored!), all three lippies are under €3 from Essence. Bonus!
