Hi everyone I hope you are all well and that the your looking forward to Autumn as much as I am! I know we can sometimes hold sentiment for the long days of Summer and that includes me too. However, Autumn invites rustic shades, cosyness and hints of Hygge and its a season I love to embrace. So I am going to now reminisce of some of my Summer days when I was awarded the luxury of being invited to McElhinneys in Ballybofey to experience their brand new Beauty Lounge which is located within the recently refurbished beauty hall. It was my very first time in McElhinneys and having heard so much about it it lived up to its expectations. On first impressions what you are met with is a one stop shop of everything under one roof. McElhinneys is a fabulous department store hosting an extensive range of designer fashion brands, cosmetics, bridal, occasionwear and lots lots more.
When I arrived into the beauty hall I was already excited for my treatment on seeing the extensive range of beauty products on offer. On entering the Beauty Lounge I had feels for the indulgence of luxury I was about to experience. I was in the good hands of Marie who provided an excellent consultation of what my skin needed and so conducted a 60 minute treatment to give my skin a boost of hydration . When I got all settled in and Marie started her magic I was asleep in minutes because I can tell you now this lady knows how to massage. At one point I do remember a shoulder and arm massage but I was so relaxed I drifted back into a deep sleep (I am still hoping I wasn’t snoring!). It really was lovely. When I woke I couldn’t believe my luck that I was still among a world of Beauty products awaiting me outside in the beauty hall.
By having a treatment in the Beauty Hall, it offers you an opportunity to experience the effects of products which are specifically chosen for your skincare and beauty needs. Also more to your advantage, treatments in the beauty lounge are redeemable against purchases made in the beauty hall. Treatments on the Beauty Hall menu include Makeup tutorials, skincare consultations, bridal packages and a whole lot more. Treatments with a duration of 30 minutes are priced at €30 and 60 minute treatments are €50.
As McElhinneys is so well know for its elegant bridal showrooms I had to have a look for myself. For any bride searching for that very special dress I can highly recommend a trip here. The options don’t just stop there either as there are also endless options for Mother of the Bride also.
A trip to McElhinneys is the ideal day out for a bride and her tribe to try on beautiful gowns have some lunch and sift through the latest trends in the fashion department. The only thing I would change, I would allow myself more time to shop. I had to make it back for creche collection so I was ona time limit (I bet hubby was relieved by this).
Until next time,
