A bit of an Update!

Sorry guys for the lack of blog posts over the last while. I've had to deal with a lot of stuff so I thought it would be best to leave blogging for a while. Don't get me wrong I still absolutely love blogging even more so now than when I started blogging over five years ago. I love my little part of the internet where I can post all my ramblings about life and beauty products that I love. Over the past while its been hard to do so though and for that I'll have to explain.
First of the reason I've been MIA from blogging for the past while is because of ill mental health. I find this point pretty hard to share with you guys as I had such a hard time with it. Over two years ago I was in a relationship with my long term boyfriend at the time Paddy who was often included in some blog posts on here. We were quite happy and going into our 6th year of dating. Out of the blue I became unwell which was very hard for both of us to deal with at the time. Just imagine one day being on cloud nine and then falling off that cloud and hitting rock bottom. It came too hard for both of us to handle and we called it quits on our relationship. I was so unhappy because I hated being on my own and after spending so much time with the one person for over five years I found it pretty difficult and it was definitely one of the hardest periods of my life. There's no hard feelings between us and we definitely both thought at the time that it was for the best. I went through a hell of a rough time negative thoughts can definitely get the better of you that's for sure but after almost two years of focusing on myself I'm better which I'm so happy to tell you guys.
Fast forward two years and I'm beyond happy. I have a new boyfriend who I met on popular dating app Tinder. We went for a few drinks on our first date and we definitely hit it off that was almost two months ago and we've been seeing each other ever since really. We get on really well and just click. I feel like I can tell him anything and we definitely have a good time together when were out and about. We went to see a Dublin Gaelic match for one of our first dates and I had never been to one before and we definitely enjoyed ourselves, Dublin won aswell so that was all good. I couldn't be happier right now to be honest. We've already planned to go on holidays together in September so I'll definitely put up a post about that.
Lastly I'm buying a rather expensive diary as I'm starting my weight loss journey again. I lost a lot of weight in the past so I want to jump back on the horse and try again. The diary I'm buying in question is a beautiful gold polka Kate Spade one so I'm definitely going to try to do updates every week if I can.
That's pretty much all my news for now how have you guys been over the last few months.

Roger & Gallet Precious Nourishing Body Balms

A brand that I’ve been in love with lately is Roger & Gallet. It feels luxurious but the prices are reasonable. My favourite scent has always been Fleur d’Osmanthus but recently I’ve also become fond of Fleur de Figuier.
In January they launched their latest product, Precious Revilitalising Body Balms. They come in three gorgeous scents and they do exactly what they say on the tin (excuse the pun). The balm itself is a nice thick lotion which leaves a gorgeous long lasting scent on the skin. There’s three scent options to choose from Fleur d’Osmanthus Precious Revitalising Balm, Fleur de Figuier Replenishing Balm and Rose Restoring Balm. My two favourites are Fleur de Figuier and Fleur d’Osmanthus as I’m not a big fan of the rose scent to be honest.

At €23 I don’t think this product is too pricey to be honest as I think you’d get a lot of use out of it.

Roger & Gallet L'Homme Range

 For this post I've gotten some help from my Dad and brother.

I've been loving the Roger & Gallet Fleur D'Osmantus range so far and I thought it would be good to get them to have the opportunity to review some products from their men's L'Homme range.

The star product of this range has to be the L'Homme Eau de Toilette. At €39.75 this may seem a little on the pricey side of things but at 100ml it will last for ages. It's a very masculine cypress wood perfume. My Dad and brother absolutely love this scent as it's perfect for everyday.

Both my Dad and brother are gym lovers so the shower gel has definitely come in handy. The shower gel is kinda expenisve at €11.75 but I've been informed that this stuff smells amazing and leaves your skin ultra refreshed and moisturised. Perfect for after the gym!

Lastly my Dad reviewed the L'Homme grooming products, the Shaving foam and aftershave balm. My brother is currently rocking a kinda Conor McGregor style beard so he won't shave it for love nor money. My Dad on the other hand loved reviewing these two products they said they worked really well together. The aftershave balm left his skin feeling nice, smooth and refreshed.

The packaging also gets two thumbs up as they are the perfect size to fit into their gym bag. They are over the size to put in carryon luggage but if your checking in a bag when your going on holidays you can pop these in two.

So if your stuck getting the man in your life or just one of your male family members a present I'd definitely recemmend this range.
