Christmas Blog Party 2014



Over the past couple of weeks, myself and my buddy Nirina joined forces with Aoibhe Devlin of The Secret Obsession Blog to plan a little festive party for our fellow blogger friends – there are just so many of us out there!

After a lot of venue hunting and trying to get the right sponsors for the event, it finally took place on Thursday 20th November in the upstairs lounge of The Opium on Wexford Street, Dublin.

We were absolutely spoilt for whole night: they treated us with a lovely selection of dessert platters and there wasn’t a single blogger who wasn’t holding a glass of wine in their hand – not that I’m encouraging alcoholism here or anything, but their wine just tasted so good!

As well as that, we got a very generous sponsorship from the KOH Coconut team and OKF Ireland, who kindly shared with us some very interesting flavours of their coconut water as well as their infamous aloe vera water – it is absolutely to die for!

Some other sponsors included reputable brands such as Cocoa Brown, Dream Dots for Spots, Sizers, Beverly Hills Formula, Nivea and Popchips. The girls were very lucky to each go home with a goodie bag filled with products from all these brands so I’m really looking forward to getting some feedback from them.

  • Sizers Orange & Purple
  • Cocoa Brown iPhone Case
  • Koh Coconut Coconut Water & Pineapple and Coconut Water & Mango
  • Aloe Vera King Natural  drink
  • Popchips Original and Sour Cream & Onion

The fun didn’t end there! There was also a spot prize for one lucky blogger and the gorgeous Agata of Style Gamblers, who is still very new to the blogging scene, went home with the prize for the best dressed. She looked as festive as ever and I’m really glad she – and the rest of the clan – made such an effort for the event!

Thanks for everyone who attended the #XmasBlogParty, it was so lovely to meet all the bloggers and I hope we’ll be seeing more of each other from here on out! Here’s a list of the beautiful girls who attended. Feel free to send me links to your Instagram ladies (I guess I wasn’t as organised as I looked ha!)

Dream Dots for Spots

product review


I was kindly sent this product for review and I must say, I was pretty impressed with the results.

Anyone who is prone to outbreaks can be very skeptical of products that claim to work overnight. Like any normal person, I dismiss such claims and continue on my quest to find the ‘perfect’ spot product to help me get rid of those little buggers.

Of course, Dream Dots for Spots was no different.

After one night of using this product I saw very little improvement (I was even starting to think it made my skin worse). Since I’ve heard nothing but good reviews about this product, I decided to give it another go and I have to say, I’m very glad I did.

Before I get into the nitty gritty of it all, I think it’s a good idea to show you how this product actually works:

As you can see, it is very simple and it doesn’t take much time to apply at all. One packet comes with 24 patches inside and it costs €14.95. You can also get a double packet of 48 patches which costs €30.00.

According to their website, Dream Dots isn’t just a sticker –

It’s a unique super absorbent hydro matrix patch device. It targets spots and breakouts overnight using no harsh ingredients, yet gives dramatically effective results. With a 100% waterproof, breathable, satin-smooth, wafer-thin surface, it acts seamlessly as a second skin, conforming to any contour of the face. On contact with the spot, the patented core locks in and absorbs the spot exudate. A moist healing environment is formed, maintaining ideal pH balance, temperature and hydration levels while sealing in repair factors, which leads to faster healing. Pain is reduced as nerve endings are cushioned and protected in this moist condition. The patch swells and turns white overnight as it absorbs exudate giving a visible reduction in redness and inflammation when removed in the morning.

From my experience of using Dream Dots, I have to say that it is a product that needs to be used over a couple of nights to get the best results. It didn’t do anything for me overnight – not a lot of products do, but after day 2 I started to see some amount of improvement!

Overall, this is definitely a product I’ll be keeping near by. I especially like the fact that it isn’t a cream so you can get away with wearing it during the day by simply hiding it under your hair – or weave – whichever works best for you!

Now for some pros and cons of Dream Dots for Spots:


  • Easy to apply
  • Quite effective after 2-3 days
  • Great packaging
  • Super portable – you can hide it in your wallet
  • You can pretty much wear it anywhere
  • Available to purchase online


  • Can be sore when removing
  • Slightly overpriced

I wouldn’t say it would work for severe acne sufferers but it definitely gets the job done for the odd spot or two – you know, the ones that usually appear before a big day? Yup, those exact ones! So if you’re prone to sneaky spot outbreaks then this product is worth giving a try!
