Sequaderma from Inish Pharmacy

Anyone who knows me will know that I fight a constant battle with my skin. It drives me insane that in my late twenties my skin has decided to act like a teenager! 
I have tried a million different lotions and potions and to be honest, most of them were crap. Some helped a little and some didn't even work in the slightest!
Then a few months back, Inish Pharmacy opened in Buncrana and after seeing on my blog that I was struggling with skin problems, they invited me to try their new Sequaderma product.
I didn't want to review it too soon as I wanted to give a truly honest review (I also have been so busy that I hadn't been using it consistently until now) but I can truthfully say it has really helped me.
At the beginning it left my skin feeling very tight and I worried about it drying out but the more I persevered and made sure I moisturised alongside it, the more I noticed a difference!
Never in a million years would I be seen dead without makeup as I really hate the look of my skin, but recently I have seen such a difference that I even went as far as taking a pic for you guys. 
You can definitely see some scarring on my skin but on the whole it is quite good and a vast improvement from what it was! Don't get me wrong, I definitely still have my bad days but nothing quite as bad as I have experienced in the past.
I would highly recommend Sequaderma to anyone struggling with their skin. It really has made improvements on mine. It is available now in Inish Pharmacy in Buncrana, Carndonagh and Muff!
Thanks so much to the team for topping up my supply today as it is a product that I always want to have on hand! And remember if you try it for yourself, don't use it for a week then give up on it, take your time and use it over a few weeks and you will definitely start to notice the results!

Afternoon Tea By The Sea

Yesterday I had the pleasure of experiencing "Afternoon Tea By The Sea" thanks to the Redcastle Hotel & Spa.
I cannot recommend it highly enough! For a start, the first thing you notice as you are shown to your table is the simply breathtaking views of the ocean. My family and I were seated at the corner table which has the best views in the room, almost completely surrounded by windows!
We then received some tea and coffee followed by a gorgeous bottle of Prosecco.
I'm not usually one for drinking during the day, but it was just too good to resist.
Our gorgeous spread of sandwiches, scones and sweet treats followed and each piece was even more delicious than the last! 
After we had finished every last bite, we then went downstairs to the decking to finish the prosecco outside by the water! Apart from the typical Donegal weather, I really felt like I was in a hotel abroad. It definitely didn't feel like I was just twenty minutes from my home.
All in all, the "Afternoon tea by the Sea" was an amazing experience. It was such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon and the surroundings of the Redcastle hotel are simply second to none.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Feleena and the team for inviting me to have this wonderful experience. I am already planning my next trip... I may even have to stay the night and try out their stunning leisure centre and spa too!
For the afternoon, I decided to wear my blue crochet dress with black ribbon detail from Sequin Cinderella Boutique. I still have them in stock in both blue and peach for just €70.
It is such a comfy dress and can be dressed up or down by adding heels or flats 
If you would like to try the "Afternoon Tea by the Sea" for yourself then you can call the hotel to book on 07493 85555.
The prices start at €19.95pp for the afternoon tea and 26.95pp with Prosecco (which is a must). So leave the car at home for the day, gather up your nearest and dearest and spend the afternoon in luxury at the Redcastle Hotel & Spa! You will love every second.
