Everything Team STELLAR Is Loving This Week

Happy Friday!

Another week, another comprehensive list of every little thing we’ve been into over the past seven days.

From beauty to X to the latest gorgeous issue of our magazine, there’s plenty to be only delighted about this week.

She’s here and she’s perfect!

The September issue of STELLAR mag has just landed on shelves, and it is genuinely one of my favourites – ever.

Starring the unreal Jamie-Lee O’Donnell of Derry Girls and Screw fame, the latest issue is chock full of insightful features, gorgeous fashion, beauty buzz, a chat with Queen Maura Higgins, and so, so much more.

She’s ideal reading for another dreary weekend, lads. Pick it up in stores now.

I love a full, natural and neat looking brow, so I’m always looking for a product that makes that easy to achieve. The Bellamianta Tribrow 3-In-1 Eyebrow Enhancer? Literally everything I need for my eyebrows in one tube.

It has a brow pencil, a spoolie, and a brow mascara all in one, making it perfect for touch ups on the go. Plus it doesn’t take up space in your makeup bag! I feel like my eyebrows look naturally thicker when I wear it, nice and fluffy but still defined. I have it in the colour Ash Brown, which is a subtle cool brunette shade. I’m obsessed!

Lorna is loving… Riverdance sensory friendly performance

Riverdance is an absolute classic. It was the reason I started dancing in the first place so I was absolutely delighted to see they’ve now created a show that is perfect for those with sensory issues, whether that’s Autism, sensitivity to noise or other neuro-divergent issues. The new sensory inclusive show will take place in the Gaiety Theatre on the 3rd of September.

The show is a much watch for anyone and this very special showing of the classic is the first stop on the way to a future of inclusivity in the performance world.

All of the profits from the show will go towards supporting @asiamireland, Ireland’s National Autism Charity.

Jade is loving… Catching flights, not feeling (and riddles)

This week, Aer Lingus announced two trans-Atlantic routes – a new direct service to Denver, Colorado and the re-launch of the Minneapolis-St. Paul route.

Both are taking off from Dublin as part of the airline’s summer 2024 programme, but rather than simply issue a press release and be done with it, Aer Lingus decided to post out some riddles and allow people to guess the new routes – and be in with a chance of winning some flights too. 

I didn’t win any flights sadly, but I did have fun, and that’s the main thing.

Aoife is loving… Low maintenance plants

I have a confession to make… I’m a bad plant mom. Or at least, I’m a plant mom who has to work very hard at taking care of her plants, and will hold her hands up to say she may have inadvertently murdered a plant or two in her lifetime. Don’t shoot!

That’s why right now, as I try to embark on a new and improved plant parenting journey, I’m loving low maintenance plants!

Hopeless Botanics, a gorgeous plant shop in the liberties, have a section on their site that is ingeniously devoted to plants that are “easy going” (aka are probably safe in the hands of someone like me). I particularly love their little table top plants, which will liven up your workspace without needing too much TLC.

Lorna is loving… Benefit Fanfest Mascara

I’ve been on the natural brown mascara trend for the last 6 months as I couldn’t find a black mascara that wowed me. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good black mascara but most new ones I was trying just left my lashes feeling clumpy, dry and stubby. For someone with long eyelashes anyway, you know it’s bad when they look shorter after the mascara.

When Benefit announced their new Fan Fest mascara, I was intrigued as I do love a Benefit moment. And well, to say it’s good is an understatement. It lifted, volumised and darkened my eyelashes without any clumps and it also lasts 24hours with no mascara covered pillowcases in the morning – an absolute yes from me!

Jade is loving… Gorge skin

The weather has been crap, this we know. So crap, in fact, that we’ve been missing the feeling of sun on our skin, the delicate smoothness of cool moisturiser after a hot day, the delectable smells of summer that have failed to come our way.

Thankfully, there’s a new body cream that’s doing fairly well at being a good dupe for all of the above. Almost.

Dr Hauschka has just launched their new bergamot and lemongrass body milk – a cream that’s got body care at its core and is sure to make you feel like you’ve been strolling around the Italian countryside all day. Adore.
