A Cup A Day…

I’m not going to lie, I wanted to try out Yo Tea because I thought it would be like a magical tea that would shrink my waist along with my dress size. I soon found out this wasn’t the case, I was misinformed and not in the know of the ways of a detox tea. 

The packaging on Yo Tea indicates that there will be a laxative effect 8 hours after drinking the tea, this effect did not happen to me (thankfully!), I didn’t quite fancy running to the bathroom all day long. Yo Tea did however work for many different things. 
The first thing I noticed was a boost in my energy. It was a different kick than my usual caffeine fix from coffee. I felt fresher and less full, perhaps the lack of dairy didn’t hurt. Green tea has a soothing effect, coming from the amino acid L-theanin, better than the jittery feeling coffee can produce.


On further inspection I found out that drinking Green Tea can prolong your life, lowering the risk of cholesterol. A million Japanese men can’t be wrong! I also found out the combination of plant extracts, herbs and Oolong Green tea, helps with the purification of the body’s cell, which can fight against cancer. The antioxidant compounds also contribute to healthy glowing skin. Seems like all of positives to me. 


At the end of my Yo Tea trial I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had lost 2 inches from my middle section. Had I been hitting the gym I know I would have lost so much more. I found I wanted to eat well during the trial too as I felt I’d be defeating the purpose if I didn’t. Yo Tea will only work with a balanced lifestyle, no use drinking two cups a day in between endless junk food. 

So girls what are you waiting for? The worlds no. 1 Detox Tea, Yo Tea is available exclusively in Therapie Clinics. http://www.therapieclinic.com/weight-loss-cha-yi-tea

Rose Gold Love Affair


I think I’d buy anything if it was Rose Gold. The colour just calls out to me. One item I’m most definitely lusting after is The Oral-B GENIUS 9000 Rose Gold, RRP €373.15

 I’ve tried out a few different toothbrushes over the years and electric is the only way to go. The Oral-B Genius 9000 has gone to new levels of dental hygiene! The world’s first brush with Position Detection technology, it sees where you have brushed to guide you as it cleans. SmartRing personalization feature on the toothbrush includes 12 different colored LED lights that can be changed to suit anyone’s tastes, moods, or outfits. I’m blown away by this toothbrush, it can even be linked up to your phone so you can see the results! Now, where can I get one?! 

All That Sparkles 

At the weekend I dropped into Penneys(Primark) to see if I could get my hands on the coveted Star Print dress. No such luck! That thing is long gone. 

I did however spot some sparkly beauties with my magpie eyes. I don’t know if they’re too OTT, they’re covered in glitter or if I’m just too old for them, they have not one but two pom-poms on each foot! Did I mention they’re from the children’s section!? A friend of mine in work has them, she has tiny feet so can get away with it. Perhaps I should just embrace them. I’ve told her we can start a cute shoes gang!

Morning Mocha


When I’m at home for the day I pine for my daily Mocha from Kaph, so I’ve taken things into my own hands. Trouble is, I’m terrible at making coffee! This is where Nescafe Azera and Cadbury Drinking Chocolate come in. I mix them together and boom, an almost Mocha! Still not as good as Kaph but until the day I have a live in Barista, or a espresso machine at least, these will do me just fine! 

Benetton On Canvas

It’s easy to get in a colour rut with the winter creeping in. I tend to stick to black and throw in the occasional dash of burgundy or dark green or even the odd shade of grey. The United Colors of Benetton have a solution. 


They recently launched Benetton on Canvas, the first store of its kind in Ireland for the Benetton Group. The new store showcases the evolution of Benetton. Focusing on the central element in store, the loom, a design on which the season, colours and materials can change around it. Simplicity is key, letting the products speak for themselves. 



Not one to pass a bag, I was blown away by the fabulous accessories dotted around the store. Even the most monochrome loving ladies couldn’t resist a pop of colour slung over their arm this winter! I’m excited to see how the seasons pan out from here 🙂 

Ps check out the beautiful baby clothes! 

Doing it with Klass


Myleene Klass isn’t short on passion. She positively glows with pride when she speaks about her latest collection with Littlewoods.

I had the pleasure of joining Myleene, along with a select few fashion savvy bloggers for a private (and absolute divine) brunch at the Westbury. Interviewed by the fabulous Courtney Smith, Myleene spoke with us about how she knows exactly what ‘her Girls’, as she affectionately calls them, are looking for. She’s completely involved in the process and won’t put anything into the collection she won’t wear herself. No doubt Myleene looks amazing in anything she puts on!



We were treated to a mini fashion show and I found myself wanting almost every piece. Leopards and florals are key components, and rather than being simple staples, they are definitely pieces to jazz up any look and bring back a bit of fun to our wardrobes! 


Myleene wanted her collections to appeal to a wide range of women starting at size 6 and goes all the way up to size 20, believe your size shouldn’t restrict how fabulous your clothes can be. The price points are accessible too, with items starting at €20. 


I instantly fell in love with the dress Myleene was wearing at the event, a gorgeous Tea Dress with a pussy bow neckline. Teamed up with killer heels and it’s a knockout outfit, for sure. The Winer Collection is steeped in 80’s Glam, think golds and sequins and high shine dresses. It’s obvious Myleene knows her stuff and works with an amazing team. Not one to stick to one thing, a versatile girl, Myleene also has lingerie covered. Speaking about how control wear doesn’t have to be boring, Myleene has made sure these are pieces super sexy and sassy. Lingerie made to be seen! 



Myleene is many things; a mother, a pop star, a fashionista and a businesswoman! Listening to her speak truly inspired me, not to mention filled me with outfit envy! 

What Lies Beneath 

Boys, look away now. It’s time to talk about bras.
Hands up if you’re a 34B/32C? Yeah, chances are you’re really not. So many women are walking around with the completely wrong size bra. 
Telltale signs:

  • Your bra gaping at the cups. 
  • Is your clasp riding up your back?
  • Straps falling down? 

All these things mean the back size you’re wearing is FAR TOO BIG! It’s time to scale it down. 

  • Getting the dreaded double boob?
  • You’re coming out a bit at the sides.

You’re actually in need of a bigger cup size than you think! 
Lots of women are shocked to find after a fitting they have jumped many sizes up, more times than down. This isn’t the end of the world, it’s all about wearing the correct fit for you. A good fitting bra transforms any outfit, for the better. Your posture improves and you just feel good. 

For years I thought I was a 36B. Outrageous when I think of it now! Shortly after I started working in Lingerie I asked the top fitters in our department to measure me. They weren’t surprised I was in the wrong size but were extremely surprised how wrong the size was! As a size 10, the lingerie ladies explained to me that a 32 back would be just the right size, and they weren’t wrong. It was the cup size that had me in awe. It turns out I should have been wearing a D! I couldn’t believe it, my girls are D’s!!! Some department stores make their own bras and I found I had to adjust my back size when buying bras there, but ultimately I accepted and embraced my true size. And to be honest, I haven’t looked back since. 
So take my advice girls, take the time and get measured. You might be a little embarrassed, and you might think the fitter will judge you for wearing the wrong size. Honestly though, they’ll just be happy to see you walking out of the fitting rooms with correct bra for you 🙂
