Ile de Ré, France – Chic et Fantastique!

I have always loved visiting France, ever since my ‘Tante Lizzie’ introduced me to her Parisian home in the late eighties. She was French correspondent for the BBC and was the first person to tell me about Ile de Ré – many, many people have told me about it since.  It has taken me this long to finally visit it, but it was well worth the wait. We decided to take the car on the Stenaline ferry (from Rosslare), as we’d heard too many horror stories of holidays ruined by the recurring French Air Traffic Controllers’ summertime strikes (more than 50…

Keane On Upstyling!

Ok, so couture might be pushing it a little but the pieces I have up styled for this feature with the help of Zip Yard in Dun Laoghaire are one-off pieces. Never underestimate the power of a good seamstress or alterations person.  Believe me, when you find one, hold on to her/him. They are worth their weight in gold. I love the reassurance of knowing no-one else will be wearing the same as me, so up-styling is my new hobby. I love shopping in Charity shops, Second hand shops, Vintage shops or cheap online websites and making alterations to create…

5 Steps to My Best Skin Ever!

You know by now I am a beauty product junkie so you can trust I have ‘tried & tested’ most of the skincare ranges on the market. What you may NOT know (unless you have attended one of my ‘Keane On Style’ events where we ‘tell-all’ and ‘share all’ beauty secrets) is I have suffered with my skin throughout my life and in particular in the last ten years. I am told I have Adult Acne (seriously, as if ageing wasn’t bad enough!) and Rosacea (prone to broken veins, hard red lumps and high colour on my cheeks and nose –…

Hair to Dyson For!

    My little sisters and I fooling around at Dylan Bradshaw during the launch of the new Dyson supersonic Hair dryer, available exclusively at Arnotts this Summer. The Verdict: Fantastic! 5 Stars. Why?: It’s small and light, really powerful (the most powerful hair dryer on the market – Dyson invested €65million achieving this) so it dries you hair in half the time….and I have a lot of hair so this is a major consideration. Results: Shinier, Silky Smooth hair in half the time. Price:  Not for the faint-hearted €399 but on the basis that I blow dry my hair…

Hugh Jackman – A Dream Come True

I’m just home from a screening of Hugh Jackman’s ‘Dukale’s Dream’ and I urge to go and see it or Watch it online. It was made in association the wonderful World Vision charity and highlights the importance of supporting Fair Trade products.   It’s available to rent/buy more Amazon and is something you can watch with the kids (our girls, 9 and 12, loved it). For more info on World Vision click here Oh, and a photo of Hugh, just because….  

The Lexus Irish Fashion Collective

A once in a lifetime opportunity for dedicated followers of fashion was witnessed on the Friday of the May bank holiday weekend, when the Lexus Irish Fashion Collective took place in the historic venue of Trinity College Dublin.   Renowned Irish fashion designers, including Philip Treacy, showcased their collections in aid of dementia care in Saint Joseph’s Shankill. I was delighted to MC and the show was produced by the incredible Catherine Condell and featured Ireland’s leading models. The Dean Dublin sponsored the reception and guests received a selection of gifts including a dermalogica gift pack from Brown Cow Beauty Boutiques, a Purcell and…

Falling in love with Portugal

It’s been a while since I wrote a travel feature and this is my first travel blog.  I just couldn’t resist telling you about the 5 glorious days my family and I spent in Quinta do Lago and Sagres this Easter.  It was just too good to keep it to myself! Firstly Faro airport is only 30 minutes from Quinta do Lago so door to door from Dublin, we were at the pool at our resort in just under 5 hours; there is no time difference at all so you don’t even lose an hour, the airport is serviced by Aer Lingus…

My Eyebrow Obsession

  If you read only one thing….read this…EYEBROWS MAKE YOU YOUNGER LOOKING! Fact! Here are pics of me after my Embrowdery yearly top up (€60) this week. These pics are not touched up. I am not wearing anything on my eyebrows – so no make up (apart from on my face), au naturale! Do not ignore the ‘Power of the Eyebrow’ to not only frame the face but give you an overall more youthful appearance.  Look back at younger pictures of yourself when you’re eyebrows were ‘untouched by tweezers’.  They were fuller right?  So, more eyebrows = a more youthful…
