A blog is born...

Welcome to LIVING & BEAUTY, my new blog. Here I hope to share with you the things in life that I love - inspiring interior styling, amazing beauty products, sublimely scented candles, food glorious food, flea market finds, fabulous fashion, photography, my favourite places to go and things to do in Ireland and beyond.

So a wee bit about me... after 13 amazing years living in Edinburgh, Scotland I moved back to Ireland last year with my Highlander husband and our uber cute jack russell in tow. My day job is in marketing and social media, but in back in 2010 I took some time out to pursue my heart's desire to work in the beauty industry (one that first started with my mum's purple Biba eye shadow and my grandmother's Pond's vanishing cream). So, I parked my then Blackberry for a brush roll and popped over and back to Dublin to train with maestro Irish make up artist, Zoe Clark. I started working with Space NK Apothecary and at Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh where I developed an in-depth knowledge and love of amazing beauty products  - from high profile brands to amazing niche lines sourced from around the globe. 

I also have a massive interest in interior styling and I love to curate an eclectic mix of classic mid century pieces, contemporary designs, industrial finds, icons of Ikea and charity shop gems in our home. 

I hope you enjoy reading LIVING & BEAUTY  - please do drop by and say hello on Instagram @LivingandBeauty.
