I embraced my inner kardashian this week by embracing a new skincare regime and copying Khloes trademark braids. I felt a million dollars.

I started last weekend after a crazy week with a Cosmedix signature facial in the beautiful surroundings of the Merchant Hotel Spa. A gorgeous oasis of beauty hidden below the busy streets of Belfast City Centre. I was greeted by some very friendly therapists and a lovely hot cup of herbal tea as it was freezing out. I took a quick tour of the facilities and then I was brought into the most beautiful treatment room.


In the treatment room I was introduced to the Spas newest products from Cosmedix. Cosmedix is an advanced skincare range that encourages the skin to repair itself.It is clinically proven to repair the skin,restore normal function while also offering long term increases in collagen and elastin density.

I was introduced to Aysha one of Cosmedixs leading facialists who gave me a blow by blow analysis of  my skin. I have to be honest when she put on a UV light I was in shock, I am  a sun worshipper and I do wear sun cream but I didn’t realise the extent of damage I had done to my skin. Thankfully Aysha was able to suggest ways to recover from this damage.

So after my analysis I was treated to a Blueberry Smoothie infusion facial it left my skin glowing and my skin texture was so smooth. It stayed like that for a few days and it made my makeup sit perfectly on my skin, I loved it.

The Spa at the Merchant Hotel is one of only two places in Belfast where skincare professionals provide Cosmedix treatments. Book in now and check it out I highly recommend it.

Next came my  Kardashian look, rushing around as I normally am, I am in love with this idea. Jason Shankey Salons at Victoria Square Belfast  have opened a new a braid and dry style bar. You can pop in between work and your upcoming Christmas event and you will end up with a fantastic braid and a smile on your face like below.It’s affordable effortless and took not even ten minutes. I think I’m going to be a regular.
