Our Sligo Mini-Break

Our Sligo Mini-Break

Last week with the bank holiday ahead we knew we wanted to get away. Going abroad or anything dramatic was out of the question as with our second honeymoon payment looming we couldn't consider it. It will be worth it though! 

Very casually Andrew suggested Sligo and with a few hours to spare and thanks to some of your fab suggestions via an Insta Stories shout out I had things planned. We both wanted somewhere chilled out, healthy food and lots of lovely walks outdoors. 


Where we stayed: 

Deciding to book before a bank holiday weekend is always tricky. I rang a few B&B's and they were all booked up and I was thinking that we had left it too late and the weekend wasn't going to happen when I got a call back to say there was a cancellation in By The Sea B&B The location was perfect and it looked spacious and bright which was all I wanted. 

We checked in on the Friday night and actually were given the family room which sleeps 4 people  so we had loads of space. On the Friday night we went for a huge 5 mile walk along the beach. On Saturday we brought the B&B family dog Jango for a walk up Knocknarea which is right in front of the house. We walked quite slowly and it probably took us about three hours there and back. 


Where we ate: 

Everyone told us about Shell's Cafe. Situated literally overlooking the crashing waves the setting is incredible. When we were there it was sunny and jam packed. We had to wait about twenty minutes for a table so allow extra time when you come. The menu is fresh and really family friendly and the staff were so kind and accommodating to my plant based diet. The flat white was also exceptionally good and they had lots of dairy-free options. 

Sometimes I am blown away by how wonderful social media is. I had asked you guys for a few suggestions for places on Insta Stories (come follow me -> Instagram.com/hollywhite.ie ) and as well as Shell's you also suggested Sweet Beat Cafe. Having won the Irish times best vegetarian restaurant in 2016 I knew it was going to be special but I couldn't have imagined how lovely it was. Walking in you are greeted by shelves of stunning raw and vegan desserts and I am delighted to say Nutmost. They have Wall and Keogh teas, a huge lunch and brunch menu and some of the most innovative, tastiest smoothies I have ever tasted. There is so much love and thought literally buzzing about here I was in heaven. If anyone is interested in trying a plant-based diet I recommend paying here a visit and sampling just how tasty the food can be. 


What I wore:

Packing for a weekend like this is always tough. Three days isn't long but I really struggle with downsizing my baggage however I kept things simple with these amazing jeans that I am living in from Revolve and currently I love this top from Isabel London. It's very roomy so very comfortable for long drives but I think the off-the-shoulder keeps it a little glam. I also packed a little polka dot skirt and another off-the-shoulder top and on the way home wore the black top with the jeans so I got three outfits out of two. 

Sitting here staring out the window at the rain I wish we were back in last weekend but I know there will be plenty more mini-trips. We had such a lovely weekend and it reminded us how special Ireland is. 

Hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend and also if you gave me any suggestions a huge thank you! 

Lots of love,

My Juice Fast Diary & Tips

My Juice Fast Diary & Tips

A few weeks back I was contacted and asked to review the Fiona Lamb Hypnotheraphy 6 week Healthy Mind Healthy Body course. I've always been fascinated by the idea of hypnotherapy and  listen to mediations online before I go to sleep. I started listening to the course about a month ago. It very easily puts me to sleep as there is a relaxation element for about 10 minutes before she starts going into the program. After about two weeks of using it I started to feel something change. I felt I needed a reboot. I wanted to get back to that place where I genuinely wanted to and enjoyed eating well. 

I've done a few juice fasts abroad in Jason Vale's retreat (see my experience >here<) and loved how well I felt after it but had never followed through at home. For me snacking and grazing throughout the day was a big downfall. Working from home the kitchen is very near and full of temptations. I decided I was going to do 3 days and my dad actually joined me as well. 

I got started the Monday before the bank holiday weekend knowing it was a short week as we were going away on the Thursday. First up I went shopping. I went to Lidl because they've reasonable vegetables a lot are organic. I had a rough plan of four juices a day, 2 litres of water and as much herbal tea as possible. I juiced twice a day. I made a big batch the night before so I had my breakfast juice ready and waiting and at lunchtime I made another two. 

Two recipes I used a lot are :

Glowing Green Smoothie

and 

Green juice

 I also added in beetroot and carrots to change up the colour. 

How I felt:

Day 1 – Actually went quickly until 5pm. Then I really felt so bored and frustrated. This is the time that is probably my downfall as I snack, prepare dinner and probably reward myself with food a bit too much. I felt antsy and irritated. A hot shower and an early night was necessary.

Day 2- I woke up feeling really heavy. I quite literally did not want to get out of bed. I felt cranky and I also could feel the beginnings of a spot on my chin. Apparently breakouts are normal. This day was tough and uncomfortable. 

Day 3 – From the outset I knew this day would be a challenge. There was no less than 4 events on, all with important clients. I bought two juices with me and I suppose at least having something with me made saying no to all the goodies presented just about OK. Surprisingly towards the end of the day I genuinely forgot I was on a cleanse or missing dinner. It was lovely! Also usually I spend an hour or so preparing dinner and felt like I had so much more time! 

Day 4 - I woke up feeling energised and clear skinned. I also felt more in touch with what it feels like to feel full. Honestly I could have gone on at this stage but we were going away and there's more to life than juice! 

What did it cost? 

Provided you already have a juicer, blender, chopping boards and glasses you only need to buy the fruit and vegetables. I did two shops throughout mine and spent approximately €45 in total. See one of the receipts from Lidl below:

If you go on a juice fast these are my tips:

  • Make your juice for the next day, the night before. Waking up tired but having the juice ready was so helpful and kept me committed. 
  • Don't let yourself go hungry or go more than a few hours without another juice. 
  • Know that you will feel strange and uncomfortable and just sort of weird. Initially I thought I was doing something wrong but in fact it’s all part of the process.
  • Sleep as much as you can
  • Avoid anyone you have a grudge with as manners go out the window circa day 3.
  • Remind yourself why you are doing this. For example I knew that I had eaten far too casually for over 3 months and rewarded myself with treat foods. By comparison 4 days seems a pretty small price to pay.
  • Get Social -I found Instagram a massive motivation. Looking up #’s associated with juicing or juice cleanses was so, helpful. It can feel a bit isolating but according to Instagram the world is juicing!
  • Follow a plan or program. I followed the Jason Vale app. It structures what you’re doing and has a proper shopping list. You need focus when surrounded by temptation.
  • Make twice if not triple all recipes so you are ready for your next fix. Most of the hassle associated with juicing is down to chopping veg, and cleaning the juicer. The process only takes me 20 minutes start to finish but doing it twice a day is my limit, or my excuse!
  • Buy lots of flasks and have them filled or take them with you when you are on the run. Dealz or the €2 shop had loads.

I am now back to normal eating but I am so glad I did the cleanse. I am juicing a few times a week and I genuinely feel I have more energy as a result. I am also into week 5 of the Fiona Lamb Hypnotherapy and really finding it beneficial. I will let you know when I come to the end of the course! 

Let me know if you have any juicing tips! 

Lots of love, 

 
 

Why Sustainability in Skincare Matters*

Why Sustainability in Skincare Matters*

Last night I was at a fascinating talk with Rich Roll and the guys from The Happy Pear. They, like me, eat a plant based diet and it was an amazing evening filled with truly powerful information and facts about the healing power of plants. 

When it comes to skincare for a while I doubted that as I got older I could genuinely depend on natural skincare but now with the global natural and organic beauty market being the second fastest growing category in 2016 – increasing by 21.6% on the previous year – there have never been so many natural skincare choices. 

Beauty is a very personal thing but I think it's a lovely way to make a conscious decision about what matters to you. Botanics is a plant-based natural skincare range that work with leading scientists with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to help identify the best plant extracts available and to ensure their sustainability which is so important. Each product in the various Botanics ranges target specific skin concerns which help you to easily keep your skin fit & healthy. I thought I would chat you through the range. 


The range comprises of five different extracts: 

Rosehip is rich in Vitamin C, Omegas’ 3, 6 and essential fatty acids - all nourishing skin foods for a healthy looking complexion. Harvested from high up in the Andes where the air is pure, the oil helps to nourish skin.

Chosen for its skin brightening properties, this natural radiance enhancer uses exfoliating flower acids, found on the Hibiscus seed-pods, to improve the appearance of skin’s texture and tone. Sustainably sourced, the flowers are handpicked, creating jobs for those living in a co-operative in Burkina Faso, Western Africa.

Well-known to boost skins clarity; the word Clary comes from the Roman word Scalarea meaning ‘clear.’ Because this plant has a self- activating ability to store water in dry conditions, specific skin- moisturising flavonoids were identified and extracted from leaves that have been sustainably sourced in North Eastern Spain.

The leaves of the Ginkgo plant contain a cocktail of anti- oxidants, used in Botanics Radiant Youth range to help to keep skin looking younger. Fan-like leaves harvested from ancient trees grown in Eastern China’s Mu Shan Reserve are sun-dried and then crushed to obtain the extract.

Botanics Triple Age Renewal: Powered by Purple Orchid, the plant that plumps and smoothes

Rich in moisturizing plant sugars, extracted from our Purple Orchid plants grown in Belgium that help to plump and smooth the skin.

Lastly Botanics use fully recyclable packaging that have been sustainably sourced wherever possible when it comes to all of their cartons, tubes bottles and jars. The only exception is in the case of the pumps- but they're working on it!

Let me know which ones you like? 

lots of love, 

 
 

Botanics is available exclusively at Boots stores nationwide and at www.boots.ie all ingredients are sustainably sourced. Follow the #ThePlantOne on social for more information.

My Tips For Saying I Do

My Tips For Saying I Do

We are nearly two months on from our wedding day and to be honest I feel as if my feet are just hitting the ground. June was a total blur and it was only when we got back our photos that all the memories came rushing back. 

I loved most of planning the wedding but it was steep learning curve. I don't come from an events background and also hadn't really thought about the practical side of things prior to getting engaged. I found a lot of blogs really helpful and I though I might share some of my tips here:


Enjoy All the Beauty Prep

I recently bumped into bride-to-be Aisling Keenan and we both agreed that leading up to your wedding you take your beauty much more seriously. I love skincare but in the last month in particular I really stuck to my routine. Catherine from Yonka gave me a Hydralessence Facial a week before the wedding and I used all the Hydra range the morning of the wedding to get my skin looking as fresh and naturally glowy as possible. I would definitely advise you to get a treatment or two in the lead up but most importantly trial your skincare for at least 6-8 weeks before the big day. 

I knew I wanted to be tanned and I tried a few but in the end I was most impressed with a St. Tropez tan from Anu Beauty. I got it done on the Thursday before my wedding on the Saturday. I also got a manicure and pedicure in The Salon in The Shelbourne on the Thursday and was thrilled with both. You can see how I spent the week before in this video:

Leading up to the wedding my hairstylist Holly Murphy in Peter Mark and I chatted about what I had in mind and she worked out a colour schedule. I knew early on I wanted a braid but it wasn't until we had the trial that we got it exactly right then she mapped it out. The fact that Holly also knew how my hair responded to humidity was so helpful as she was able to prep it thoroughly on the day. I think also having a familiar face on the morning was very reassuring. 

Fitness wise I did two sessions a week with John in Number 17 Personal training. I feel having some sort of an outlet for stress is really important. 

I didn't want a veil but I wanted something to lift the sparkle from my dress upward and I chose a hair vine from Jules Bridal. It was made a little longer for me and I felt it suited the style of the dress and made it a bit glam boho. I didn't wear any other Jewelery as I felt that was enough. 


Saying Yes To The Dress

I looked in three boutiques for my dress. I knew I wanted something simple and quite classic. I fell in love with my dress in the second place I went to. After trying it on I didn't really want to try on any more but my mum and I went to one more boutique. I tried on a few dresses there but all they did was reaffirm my earlier choice was the right one. Be sure to ask your boutique how many fittings (if any) you will need in advance. I had about five appointments but as Myrtle Ivory, where my dress is from, was only a fifteen minute walk from my work it was easy to get to. Meg and her mother who run it were honest and to the point which I appreciated. They bought in a tailor to the shop which was great as not all places do that but I think it's important for the people who sell you the dress to stand over it until it's exactly as you want it to be. There was an extra tailoring cost so I would advise you to ask for an approximate figure in advance as it will need to be paid towards the end when it's crunch time and everything needs to be paid for! 

When it came to buying my wedding shoes my mum and I went to Kildare Village about three months before the wedding and I found myself trying on a really simple pair of sandals in Kurt Geiger and to be honest they were perfect. I actually also changed into a pair of flip-flops after dinner and I'm really glad I didn't go overboard with my shoes. Don't feel that just because these are your 'wedding shoes' they have to be the most perfect thing in the world, just make sure they're comfortable, wear them in and make sure a bridesmaid has Compeed to hand as well.

Accessory wise my mum made me my bridal bag. My bridesmaids dresses were pink and she lined it in pink flowers as a nod to that. I had seen her over the years making them for other brides using vintage bag handles and lace and this was really special. 


Say No To Things That Don't Feel Right

I honestly didn't know what a wedding favour was until a few weeks before when someone asked me had we thought of them. Around that time I was signing up to run the the Mini-Marathon for the ISPCA and they mentioned that some couples had made a donation to a charity instead and that felt right to me. They give you the cutest little placecards for the tables and we had a little photoshoot with the cats before it. I have been down to the ISPCA I was really happy to support the work they do. 

There is pressure for other wedding paraphernalia and to be honest go with your gut. It's your day and I think as long as the priority is on keeping people fed and watered and entertained, everything else is at your discretion. 


Monitor The Spreadsheet and Think About What Will Matter in Ten Years

Five hundred euro here and there very quickly adds up into a whole different figure. Towards the end it came crunch time for our wedding bands. We had intially wanted them to be made by Rudolf Heltzel who made my engagement ring and we picked out ones we really liked. Being custom made they were a little steeper than standard wedding bands that are widely available. We thought a lot about it in the last few weeks and eventually decided to go with them. There are some elements to your day that won't matter in a decade but I felt that our wedding bands would be on our hands for the rest of our lives and it was important we went for the ones we loved. My Mum and Dad's wedding bands are actually from Rudolf Heltzel also so it's quite a sentimental thing but plenty of things fell to the wayside with the will it matter in ten years rule. 


Showcase Your Personal Taste

Andrew and I both work in food and it was really important to us that the menu represented our style. I am very much into serving food buffet style and like people to help themselves. It's also a social thing. I designed four big sharing bowl salads, potatoes and vegetable options that were placed in the middle of the tables and then people ordered their preference of the vegan option, the fish or beef to go with the sides. The Hotel hadn't served a meal like this before but afterwards said they were delighted it went down so well and said that they would be offering it as an option in future packages.  My point is don't be afraid of going a little off menu or asking for something to be served differently. It's important that the day represent you as much as possible. 

When it came to the cake, which was also our dessert, I knew I wanted this to be a vegan cake. Andrew and I are big Susan-Jane White fans. She called over to the house one day with her book The Virtuous Tart and some freshly made brownies and we just clicked with her straight away. She made our wedding cake for us and it's actually the one on the cover of the book. It was a raw chocolate and raspberry torte. We served this with fresh Irish strawberries and Nobó salted caramel ice cream. The dessert was vegan and I think showed that side of me but in the most delicious way and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. 


End The Night On A High

I look back on the first six months of being engaged and feel I was very naive. There is a lot of pressure to have the band, photographer, make up artist, or DJ in weddings and initially I took it all to heart and felt we needed to book certain people straight away. In hindsight no one needs that pressure and there are plenty of brilliant wedding suppliers. That said one recommendation we took verbatim and I am so glad we did was for our band Mix Tape.  A wedding is a funny mix of people from all ages and musical preferences and a good band will get everyone up dancing. 

The best advice they gave us was that our guests would follow us. If we stayed on the dance floor, our guests would stay there and we made a decision to dance all night long. The lead singer also MC-d the night and called everyone over from the bar, in from the smoking area and kept the dance floor full and everyone engaged. Whatever kind of entertainment you choose I think it's a good idea to keep things upbeat till the end and remember if you dance all night long, your guests will too!

Have Your Say

I know this isn't for everyone and honestly I've no idea what I actually said but I did give a little speech. I wanted to take the opportunity to say a few words as it felt very male dominated otherwise with my dad, Andrew and the best man all speaking. I should have put more thought into what I planned on saying but I felt if I thought about it too much I would back out. What I will say is that on your wedding day everyone is relatively polite and it is a day where you feel so full of love and happiness that it's nice to thank everyone for being there and for helping you along on your journey to get there. 


Pick Your Suppliers Carefully

The morning of our wedding it lashed rain. Having gone from being absolutely sweltering the day before to raining solidly I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a little disappointed. I saw the groomsmen putting on the ribbons on the cars in the pouring rain and began wondering about the drinks reception which was supposed to be outside. Thankfully we had an incredible planner Marie Chawke co-ordinating the day. She reassured me that the hotel is used to hosting events in every condition so they just moved the reception inside. I was so pleased she kept me calm. Your wedding day is the time to delegate and pick a bridesmaid or friend as the point of contact for suppliers who is a solutions focused person. You don't need extra stress as there will be enough emotion going round your head as it is. 

Your hair and make up people will also set the pace of the morning. If they're efficient the morning will run smoothly so make sure they are well briefed in advance and have a timetable printed for them all. I allowed 45 minutes for each person's hair and make up but your suppliers will guide you on this. It's important to remember your hair, make up and photographer will be with you the whole morning so try and pick people who you feel comfortable around. I knew I needed calm, rather than extrovert, people around me. For photography I was so happy to have chosen a very unobtrusive photographer. I barely noticed Trish and she didn't need any direction from me, she just quietly worked away.


Let The Day Take Over

Once we got to the Church nothing mattered and the day opened up. Although we had planned it all, everything surprised me. There is nothing I wouldn't give to walk up the aisle again as that was the moment where I just connected to what was happening and external factors, like the weather, or worrying about the morning, didn't matter any more. It's not that I'm cynical but I just hadn't felt that depth of emotion before and it took me by surprise. I had heard all the clichés about weddings, I just didn't think that would be my experience but it was amazing and such a special memorable day. 

We are onto the next chapter and I feel in some ways sad it's all over. I wish I could re-do it all with what I know now but I've to remind myself there will be other parties...

If you are a bride-to-be I really hope these tips are of use and I wish you all the very best for your special day! 

Lots of love,

10 Minute Make Up

10 Minute Make Up

When it comes to make up I love nothing more than lots of time to play around with things but that rarely happens. Most days if I have an event I follow this very quick ten minute routine. I like to look like myself, just a little more polished. 

My Post-Workout Vegan Smoothie

My Post-Workout Vegan Smoothie

I used to be really reluctant about supplements but leading up to my wedding I began taking a vegan protein in a smoothie after my workouts and I found I felt so much better afterwards. 

I've tried quite a lot and my favourite has to be the WelleCo Nourishing Protein. It tastes really good and blends easily. This is a simple shake recipe that I throw together after the gym. All ingredients can be cupboard stapes and the berries and the banana can both be frozen so you can bulk buy in advance. My only advice is chop up the banana before freezing so it doesn't damage your blender. 

Post Workout Vegan Protein Smoothie

Really hope you enjoy this as much as I do! 

Lots of love, 

 
 

My 1 Minute Green Juice

My 1 Minute Green Juice

When it comes to juicing I now mostly just green juice. This juice in particular is quite sharp but the lemon adds a little hint of sweetness to it. 

I have a cold pressed juicer which uses very little heat. It means it takes a little longer to make a juice while it chomps through but it means that the juice will stay fresh if kept in the fridge for up to three days. I add chia seeds to bulk it out a bit but only put these in just before you drink it or it will become sludgey as the seeds expand. 

My 1 Minute Green Juice

I make this usually once or twice a week and honestly as much as I love that you can buy juices everywhere now once you get into the habit of making them at home it's much cheaper and fresher. 

Buy the Retro Juicer -> Here. 

Enjoy!

Love, 

 
 

What I Use To Get The Glow

What I Use To Get The Glow

When it comes to make up I have always favoured a natural look over any trend, that said at the moment it seems to be all about getting gorgeous glowy skin, and I want to join in on this asap.

I've been testing lots of different variations from primers, bases to finishing powders that are all completely vegan and cruelty free and these are all my favourites and how I use them:  

Start Fresh

I go on and on about the Yonka Gommage as genuinely it gives you smooth glowy skin so easily and so gently. This gives you a super-smooth canvas to work from for the next steps. As discussed in my last post about skin hydration keeping your skin well moisturised is essential. I always like to use a spritz of the lotion throughout the day to refresh my skin too. 


Layer It Up

After moisturising I love to layer on the glow and one of my current favourite products is the Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturiser. The glow in this is achieve by diamond particles that are milled so finely it sinks in so easily and you are left with a really natural looking radiance. If you want to amp things up a bit more the Liquid Aura from Urban Decay will do just that. On it's own I think it's a bit obvious but mixed with foundation I think it creates a gorgeous night time very Victoria Beckham kind of glow.  I also love the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer and find it blends really well too. 

If you are looking for a more reasonable option Seventeen and also the No. 7 options are good however they are quite oily but perfect for dry or normal skin types. 

If you want coverage and glow combined with SPF then I think the Bare Minerals Complexion rescue is a great option. I'm a huge fan of mineral make up and this is my go to on days when I don't want too many layers of product on my skin. I apply with my fingers and buff it in with a Blank Canvas F 06 brush which I love as it's so dense and smoothes things really quickly. The rose gold is an added touch and they're vegan also. 


Brighten The Eyes

For under the eye area there are two standout products I've been using a lot. I've had dark circles all my life and what I hate is that they make me look wrecked. Piling concealers on the area gets cakey very quickly but both of these have lots of illumination in them which reflect the light back and brightens the whole area much more effectively. Trish McEvoy is a brand I am becoming more familiar with after attending a fabulous lunch hosted by the woman herself.  This instant eye lift is great but you have to work quickly with it as it sets rapidly. Otherwise the Bare Minerals Stroke of light is lovely. It can crease a little under the eyes so be careful not to use too much product to set it afterwards. 


Finishing Touches

When it comes to getting those final glowy touches these two are in rotation at the moment. I try to use a fan brush like this one from Spectrum as it keeps things super light and it's very hard to overdo anything with it as it doesn't hold much product. I know there are all those memes about seeing highlighter from space but I do prefer something a little more subtle. For a very reasonable option the Technic Highlighting powder is so reasonable and very buildable. Lastly I think the Bare Minerals Invisible Glow is very good. It has flecks of bronze through it so wouldn't work well on very pale skins but with a light tan it looks lovely. 

Let me know if any of these are your favourites too? 

Lots of love,
