Hey all,

So for those that follow me on snapchat – shapesndshadow , will know I headed away on holidays to Lanzarote the second week in January. We decided back in August 2017,  we wanted to head away after Christmas with kids and also wanted to take my mam away, treat her for all her help that year and let her relax. So we had been researching places for weeks and weeks. We wanted somewhere that wasn’t going to be too cold or too hot for the kids and not to far to travel. Out of all of the reviews Lanzarote was coming up as the best place to go, at that time of year. We knew whether wouldn’t be guaranteed but we where just happy to be getting away with the kids.

*Just before I begin. We paid for the holidays ourselves.

Travelling!!! 

Package holidays were a lot more expensive, so we booked everything separate and saved over €500. Flights we booked through Aer Lingus Costing us €800 inc bags for 3 adults two kids (3) , one child free as my youngest had only tuned 1, for ten days. Which I thought was really good.

When booking with Aer Lingus we had a couple of choices for flight times for flying out and returning home. I wanted the Journey for the kids to be as easy as possible, so we opted for the early morning flight 7.05am from Dublin – Lanzarote. Which ment we where up super early and the kids were exhausted by the time we boarded the flight and they slept for three hours out of the 3 hour 40 minute flight, which was brilliant. On the way home we choose the 5.50pm fight and again both slept for the entire flight. The staff on both flights travelling over where so helpful and couldn’t do enough to ensure the kids where okay with bottles etc.

I did pack the hand luggage with the Ipad , snap cards , colouring books etc. My husband also picked up the Trunki Trixie from Halfords for my three-year old for her hand luggage and something for her to ride on in the airport. It’s the best thing we ever bought she absolutely loved it and it kept her occupied . While all of her holiday clothes sat perfectly into the suitcase , it was still so light weight for her to use around the airports. It also contains a strap so you can keep hold of the little ones.

Buggies!!

Travelling with small ones can be daunting especially when they are still in buggies. Lacey who is three has been out of her stroller since she was around 16 months old, but I kept her buggy as spare just incase. For my son who has just turned 1 in december, I have the I candy Peach Royal and while I absolutely love it, I just knew it was too bulky to bring with us and knew Lacey might need her stroller incase she got tired. Just as well I kept her buggy, because she did get tired from walking and wanted to be in her buggy. Anyway I started to research some of the new pockitt strollers for Jordan and came across the Mothercare XSS Stroller.

It only arrived the week we travelled and it was only then I realised it didn’t recline back. I went back to check on the site and again it didn’t mention it. But it worked out in the end as we had the spare buggy. I bought The XSS Stroller on offer on Mothercare for €109. Even though it didn’t recline, it was the handiest little buggy ever. It sat perfectly into the overhead compartment on the plane. Suitable for 6months – 15kg so my two sat perfectly into it and the buggy was still so light.

Rent a Car!!!

We wanted the whole trip and travelling to be as easy as possible for the kids, so we booked a rent a car through Cabrera Medina .

We booked a family car, for 10 days, fully comprehensive including two car seats for €180.

Hotel & All inclusive !!!

The Hotel itself was Four Star, and that it definitely was. The Hotel and the grounds were spotless and constantly been cleaned. The staff were incredibly helpful and so friendly. We book the H1o Suites Lanzarote Gardens through Hotels.com.

We went with the Bungalow when booking. It had an upstairs and downstairs with kitchen, sitting room , large bathroom , bedroom , safe , cot , hairdryer etc.

Rooms where so clean and freshly cleaned every morning inc fresh sheets.

All Inclusive 

We booked all-inclusive, for the offer we got we really couldn’t have turned it down. All inclusive for everyone included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, dining hall full of food and drinks for guests. I have attached some videos for you too see. There is something for everyone even the fussiest of eaters like me.

You also had the pool side bar which also had a snack menu which is also included in all-inclusive. You could also order all your drinks , ice creams , cocktails here too.

Another great thing included was the bottled water and cocktails as these can set you back a good chunk on holidays.

So we payed €1800 for 3 adults two kids – one child free, all-inclusive which works out at €200 a day for everyone €50 per person.€50 per person for breakfast , lunch , dinner , all the drinks inc , room , etc absolute bargain!!!!

Entertainment

The days passed so quickly , with so much to do. There was kids clubs for all..

Hi All ,

My First official blog post of 2018 and Big Celebrations on my side as I could finally announce I am now the Brand Ambassador  for Cosmetics Bulgaria and I honestly couldn’t be any prouder to say those words and I’m delighted everyone is so happy for me too.

Todays post we are talking all things skincare , haircare and a new brand of skincare and hair products I have been introduced to by Cosmetics Bulgaria. This range which I have been trying for the last 6 weeks is the Bulgarian Rose Karlovo, Rose & Joghurt range.

This Company was established in 1948, a company with a lot of Bulgarian tradition which I love. This year they will Celebrate 70 years of Successful business , that in itself says something about this company.

The Rose & Joghurt cosmetic line by Bulgarian Rose Karlovo is one of the most popular and loved cosmetic lines in Bulgaria, not only because it takes the best from the Bulgarian-made beauty ingredients – the natural rose oil and rose water, but has also perfected them by adding an extract of Bulgarian yoghurt and the beneficial bacteria lactobacillus bulgaricus.The rose oil and rose water are natural moisturizing agents that hydrate, soften and soothe skin and slow the aging processes. The probiotic in the yogurt perfectly nourishes, increases the oxygen flow to the skin cells, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and rejuvenates.

The Rose and Joghurt cosmetic line includes a range of products for everyone including a gentle cleansing milk for face, soothing cream, nourishing cream, milk concentrate for the area around the eyes, rejuvenating face cream, nourishing body cream, shower gels, nourishing body milk, softening foot cream, moisturizing handcream, gentle shampoo, conditioner and a nourishing mask for damaged hair.

So lets move onto the products I have been throughly trying for the last 6 weeks.

First up we are talking shower gels –

Gentle Care  shower gel.

A gentle cleansing shower gel that :

  • Contains 100% natural Bulgarian rose oil, rose water and probiotic of Bulgarian yoghurt.
  • Enriched with olive oil.
  • Cleanses, refreshes and hydrates the skin.
  • Suitable for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive.

 

I absolutely love how light and nourishing this is on the skin. Its smells amazing and a little definitely goes a long way. €3.89 for 250ml.

Gentle Care Hair Shampoo 

So as most of you will know I had my second set of Gold Fever Hair Extensions Applied back in September and since having my first set applied back in June 2017, I have really started to look after my hair. The Gentle care hair Shampoo :

  • Contains 100% natural Bulgarian rose oil, rose water and probiotic of Bulgarian yoghurt.
  • Softens, nourishes and revitalizes the hair. Restores its natural glow.
  • Suitable for all hair types, especially dry and treated.

I have been using this shampoo for the last 5 weeks and I am honestly so so impressed. The bottle is completely empty and I will be definitely be picking up some more. Over the last couple of weeks I had been getting a lot of compliments on how healthy my hair was looking and I 100% believe its improved so much since I started to use this shampoo along with some other hair care products.€3.30 for 250ml.

Gentle Care Hair Mask 

So because this Hair Mask Contains Sulphates , which isn’t suitable to use with hair extensions , I let my sister be the verdict on this one.

  • Delicate moisturizing hair mask.
  • Contains 100% natural Bulgarian rose oil, rose water and probiotic of Bulgarian yoghurt.
  • Softens, nourishes and revitalizes the hair. Restores its natural glow.
  • Helps with styling.
  • Suitable for all hair types, especially dry and treated.

So my sister a hair straightening addict put the Mask to the test and absolutely loved it. She used it once or twice a week for the last 5 weeks. She said it instantly left her hair feeling super soft and shiny. It didn’t leave any residue in her hair and the big thing for her was the improvement in her split ends. €7.26 for 220ml. Ill be having my extensions removed soon for a few weeks, so I  cannot wait to try it for myself.

Delicate Hand Cream.

I suffer really bad with dry hands all year round not just the winter. I find ever since having kids , I’m constantly washing my hands when they don’t even need to be washed. Anyone else like this?

I have tried some really good hand creams over the years , but expensive ones. This little miracle hand cream for €2.20 is absolutely amazing for dry , irritated , sensitive hands. Packed full of nutrients to leave the hands feeling hydrated and soft.

Lastly we move onto Two Face products I have absolutely been loving, from the Rose Joghurt range.

Milk Concentrate Eye Cream.

I think we all forget about our eyes when it comes to skincare. When really the skin around the eyes is the most vunerable part of the face, as the skin is so thin. Therefore we should be paying extra attention to the eye area no matter what age you are.

When it comes to Eye Creams you ideally want a product thats Gentle but effective on the eyes. The Milk Concentrate from this range is honestly the lightest eye cream I have ever used. Its so lightweight almost fluffy in texture. Doesn’t leave a heavy residue the skin and leave the eye area feeling super hydrated and soft.

  • Contains 100% natural Bulgarian rose oil, rose water and probiotic of Bulgarian yoghurt.
  • Enriched with the certified ingredient Hygroplex and natural rosehip oil.
  • Rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
  • Suitable for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive.

Anything too heavy around the eye area you’ll get a build up of oil , wrinkles , milia etc. You also want to apply the eye cream in a patting motion to stop further ageing and wrinkles.

Rejuvenating Face Cream.

So if your a long time follower you’ll know I’m super fussy when it comes to my moisturisers. I don’t like anything too heavy, that will leave a residue on the face. But yet something effective on the face . I absolutely love how lightweight and Gentle the Rejuvenating Face Cream is .  Suitable for all skin types.

It leaves my  skin feeling so plump and so hydrated , I love it.  Everyone has been asking me have a changed something with my skin lately and I 100% think this has made a huge difference.

  • Gentle and effective rejuvenating face cream.
  • Contains 100% natural Bulgarian rose oil, rose water and probiotic of Bulgarian yoghurt.
  • Enriched with macadamia oil and the certified moisturizing ingredient Pentavin.
  • Has an UV filter.
  • Suitable for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive.
Soothing Face Cream

Lastly we move onto the Soothing Face Cream, again another light weight, gentle face cream. I use this face cream when I come out of the shower or bath , as I find my skin can be very red after the shower. This cream is great for soothing the skin and keeping any redness at bay. I also gave some of this to my mam in a pot and for someone who suffers with Roscea she loved it.

  • Delicate and light soothing face cream.
  • Contains 100% natural Bulgarian rose oil, rose water and probiotic of Bulgarian yoghurt.
  • Enriched with argan oil and Lactacil.
  • Suitable for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive.

I have incorporated the face products into my normal face products I usually use. But Check out the rest of the Rose & Joghurt Range, they have loads of amazing , super affordable prodycts for all skin types.

Until next time ,

Amy.

Hey all ,

Today I am back with an update all about my laser hair removal journey with Havana Skin Clinic . The last time I had a detailed update was back in November, which you can read all about here.

Today I am back with a more recent update. I am now on session 9 on my upper body and session 7 on my legs, as the legs are every 8 weeks rather than every 4 weeks on the upper body.  Last week I was back for my 9th session of upper body only.

Prior to having treatment , your therapist  always asks about your thoughts on the reduction. Which up until my last appointment I had been saying 60% , which is amazing after 8 sessions. Four weeks after my last appointment I can definitely see another 10% of reduction again. Now seeing a good 60-70% reduction of hair in most areas. You can of course shave in between your appointments if needed , but I actually never need to which is amazing, considering before I started laser, I would have shaved four times a week or more. I only shave the night prior to my appointment now. The hair that does grow back though, is very light and only grows back in certain areas. This is where the multiple treatments come into play with the hair growth cycles.

Between my last session in December and the 5th of January , I haven’t seen a major difference in results but in saying that this can happen as is all about catching the hair in the right cycle. I have also been on a couple of different tablets over the last couple of weeks and a little stressed too, which can all impact on your results. But Iv just had mt 9th session of upper body and will be back in 8 weeks with another update.

Pain wise , I have to admit the thinner the hair is getting the nippier the treatment is. Pain wise would be a 4/5 depending on the area . The hollywood and underarms are definitely a lot more sensitive than the forearms and legs. On the legs I always find the ankles much worse than the legs themselves.

Ingrown hairs , If you have been following my laser hair removal journey from the start , you’ll know I suffered really bad with ingrown hairs to the point where I needed antibiotics. They where causing me so much discomfort and left me with some horrible marks on my legs, which you can see from the pic below.

Since starting my laser hair removal journey. I have only had three ingrown hairs which is amazing. I am back next month for my 10th upper body session and 8th session on the legs , so stayed tuned for my next update .

If you do wish to have you laser hair removal consultation, you can contact Havana here.

If you also mention Shapes & Shadows blog if booking, you can also avail of a discount.

Until next time,

Amy.

Hey Everyone ,

So if you follow me a while now you’ll know I started my Reform – Stretch Mark Reduction Treatment with Havana Skin Clinic back in June.

Why Stretch Mark Reduction you may ask ? So I am a very proud mam to my two beautiful kids. The oldest being 3 and youngest just gone 11 months. On my first pregnancy I got really bad stretch marks on my stomach and on my second they got a lot worse in the sense of, the colour around them got a lot worse which in turn made them stand out a lot more to me. Don’t get me wrong I don’t hate my stretch marks , but any sort of reduction in size or colour would help , particularly the colour of them for me.

Stretch marks are so difficult to treat as they are a form of skin scaring on the skin but possible.  Reasons why we get stretch marks.

  • Rapid Skin changes , Weight Loss or Weight Gain.
  • Hormonal Changes from Puberty , Pregnancy or Body Building.

Stretch Marks can be classified into two different groups

  1. New – Red , Pink or Purple 3/4 months old.
  2. Old – Transparent , White , Silver or Paper like are couple of month too a couple of years old.
What the treatment involves – Reform a combination  treatment !!

You will initially have a consultation which is so important. If a suitable candidate on your first treatment here’s what to expect.

The area chosen in my case my stomach and hip area will be cleansed and a numbing cream applied for 20 minutes.

The treatment itself starts with Microdermabraion – this is where a small handheld tool, with a gritty nozzle is used to remove the dead skin from the area being treated. This will allow to get right down into the stretch marks. This part of the treatment is pain-free with a small amount of scratching.

http://shapesandshadows.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/img_1039.mov

Microneedling –  The specific tool either a Pen or Roller will need to be chosen all depending on the type of stretch marks you have.  Which will create little micro channels in the skin and re-enforce the skin tissue to rejuvenate an reform itself.

Radio Frequency –  Works on remodelling the tissue underneath the skin surface of the dermis.

I have also been advised to use a topical cream at home .

What to expect after Treatment !!

A lot of redness and sensitivity which are all good signs and nothing to be alarmed about. These can last anything up to two weeks. It almost feels like sunburn.

How Many Treatments will I need & Prices !!

Everyone will be different and different areas will need more or less treatments. This is why your consultation is so important.

Prices start at €500 per area per treatment or three treatments on one area for €1200.

If your thinking of having the treatment done stay tunes for my next blog post including before and after pictures. For now if you wanted to have a look at the treatment being performed you can do so here.

If you want to follow my journey you can do so on my snapchat – shapesndshadows.

Until next time,

Amy.

It’s all about fur

Hey guys, it’s Aisling here. Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately, any of you that work in retail will know that this time of the year is far from fun. Long hours and extra days in work will be the death of me! With that being said, I do agree that it is the most wonderful time of year for many reasons, my fave being the fashion! And what better way to dress up an outfit than a nice piece of fur (faux of course)! Here’s a few of my top picks, ranging from expensive to really affordable.

This shaggy jacket from Pretty Little Thing is one of my faves. Perfect for throwing on over leathers or with a sparkly dress to add some chic vibes! It’s priced at €81.

You’ll have seen this gilet EVERYWHERE, it’s definitely a blogger favourite! Another really versatile piece for your wardrobe, and available in lots of colours too. It’s €91 and from Cari’s closet.

This next one definitely won’t be to everybody’s taste, but it combines two of my favourite trends right now- the aviator jacket and faux fur all in one. It’s a bargain at €68 aswell! Check it out here on Boohoo .

If you like the idea of adding a little fur but are afraid of the idea of a full on fur jacket, don’t worry I haven’t left you out. This fur stole would be fab to dress up a glitzy festive dress, without too much fuss! It’s reduced to only €12 in littlewoods too, you can’t say no!

That’s all for this week guys, hope you enjoy some of these recommendations.

Until next time,

Aisling x

Hey all,

Back with November’s Cruelty Free brand of the month and this time we are talking skincare. If you haven’t  checked out my last skincare post all about Eminence products you can do here.

You all know at this stage, when it comes to reviewing my skincare I hand on my heart won’t say a peep about that product for at least 5 weeks. There is no possible way someone could give an opinion on skincare without giving it time to work on the skin which takes at least a month.

For the last 6 weeks  I have been trying two new products from Eminence which I am going to fill you all in on below.

Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream €95

 This ultra-rich eye cream uses naturally derived plant peptides and algae extracts to :

  • Visibly improve appearance of wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles
  • Boosts production of high quality collagen
  • Provides superior, long-lasting hydration
  • Suitable for use day and night
  • Ideal for all skin types, especially aging skin

Rich but light weight green cream feels so lightweight on the delicate eye area. Out of the last 6 weeks I can definitely see a huge difference in the dark circle and texture of the skin around my eyes in the last two weeks. Thats why it take more than 4 weeks to see the benefits. You definitely only need a tiny amount so its going to last you ages.

Marine Flower Peptide Serum €98

This potent gel serum delivers concentrated plant peptides and botanicals to :

  • Easily absorbed potent gel serum
  • Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for plumper more youthful looking skin
  • Boosts production of high quality collagen
  • Increases firmness, rejuvenate and plumps for a smoother complexion
  • Ideal for all skin types, especially aging skin

I have to be honest and say this is not the most pleasantly scented serum I have ever used. You can smell how potent and concentrated it is from the second you open the bottle. I can honesty say though my skin has never look so bright and fresh and I have has so many compliments on my skin this week. Again you only need a small amount , a little goes a long way . Definitely a must have for me.

If you try this products let me know.

Until next time ,

Amy.

Hey all ,

So if you’ve been following my laser hair removal journey with Havana Skin Clinic up until now, you’ll know how amazing my results are with already a 60% reduction of hair.

Since my journey started my mam and my sister Cathy , were intrigued to see how I got on. They have now had there second treatment and are back for there third session this week.

Just over three weeks ago they both headed for their second appointment on upper body. You can read all about their first treatment here and how they got on.

So far my Mam can notice a 10% reduction of hair on her legs and underarm. She can definitely see more of a difference on her underarms than her legs. Pain wise this time around underarms was 3/5.

In her words ” I have a very low pain threshold and I would give the pain a 3/5 “. “It’s Pinchy , but nothing that I couldn’t manage for the time it takes”. “Its been 3 weeks now since my second  treatment and while I can see a difference now it is only small , I’ll be able to tell you more after my third treatment”.

My sister on the other hand has her , Hollywood, underarm and naval done this time around. Something very similar to mine, but I am having my forearms done. Cathy’s hair is definitely Dark and thick.

In her words “I couldn’t be happier to start my laser hair removal journey”. “I would shave every second day if not everyday”. ” I would give a 2 /3 for pain wise on all area except the bikini which I’d give a 3/5 again it’s just that bit more uncomfortable and pinchy, but its over in seconds.

The girls are back this week for their third session of legs and upper body, so stay tuned to see how they feel after this treatment.

If your interested in having a consultation with Havana Skin Clinic to see if your a suitable candidate you can book it here. If you mention Shapes & Shadows blog you can also avail of a discount.

You can also have a read of my latest laser hair removal update here.

Until next time ,

Amy.

Hey Everyone ,

With so many Hair tools on the market these days. It can be super daunting as each one now days has so many different functions and nozzles, settings a sprays. If you super fussy like me and want some you can just Dry and style quick and easy then these are my top three products.

LanaiBLO Hair Dryer

So why the LaniBLO? I have been using the LanaiBLO for the last 6 months and I can honestly say its been the best thing I have ever purchased. Regardless of having extensions or not. This baby dries your hair super quick and this means everything when you a little small ones or running late etc. It leaves you hair  super soft and fuzz free. Coming from someone who is useless at doing hair, this definitely gives you the Salon Blow dry at home. Now also available in 4 stunning colours.

Glamoriser Curling Wand

I’m not sure about you but no how many tutorials I watch, I have never got the curling with flat irons. I find it awkward and confusing as easy as it looks. I seen this Glamouriser Curling Wand from Debenhams on Love Laurens Instagram a couple of weeks back and ordered it straight away. Its a bit thicker than your average curling wand which will give you the really boho look everyone is mad after.

I must say its super easy to use and gives such a nice soft curl. It’s also on special at the moment reduced from €70 – €35.

Cerasilk Styling Iron

I have to say I have been a GHD lover since they first released and am a creature of habit always stick to what I know. But since trying the newly launched Cerasilk from Instyler, it has totally changed my thoughts on the   GHD.

The CERASILK Styling Iron has unique woven ceramic covered plates that serve as a built-in heat protectant to defend against damage to the hair which I think is genius . It eliminates direct contact with harmful bare plates and results in 92% less damage.

It also have floating plates which give constant contact with hair for fast and efficient styling while gliding smoothly down strands.

I hope found this post helpful.

Until next time,

Amy.
