Write it and they will come…

It all seemed so easy, just add a wee blog post every week and the crowds will gather and wonder at your genius! No surprise, I'm not a genius and in the midst of all the makeup and massage time gets away with you and quite often when you do finally get a moment you can't think of anything that anyone would ever want to read. So I thought I would just give you all a wee update on what's going on at DHMB. Over the summer it is M A D.  We are flat out and working super hard to get everyone ready for all their summer adventures.  This month the very lovely Jess started at DHMB, you will meet...

Some snaps from DHMBs night at the Bangor Business Awards

  Well all our blog followers and friends from Facebook.   Thank you so much for all your support this year as we reflect on what has been a wonderful year.  Last year we were the Most Promising New Business and this year we were finalists in the Customer Service category. We do what we do because we sincerely care for you.  From the very start I wanted a salon that didnt just play lip service to the clients experience but from the moment you step inside the renovated railway station at Helen's Bay (and previously my wee studio in the Dee) I wanted my clients to be at the centre....

MORGAN TAYLOR COMES TO DHMB

Morgan Taylor has enhanced colour creativity with this range of eye-catching glitters, metallics, shimmers, and crèmes. Every colour tells a story: incandescent sheens, boundary-breaking hues, never-before-now luminescence, and creamy crèmes, were created exclusively for the nail artist, using only the finest ingredients. From rich, deep tones to barely-there tints, to clean brights; the spectrum knows no bounds and is continuously evolving through trends, moods, attitude and style. We have a launch collection and so far I am loving it! Pop by the salon for a little something special this...

The knot is tied!

  So we did it! 4 months to plan the big day and it was FAB! Firstly - the fitness regime paid off the dress fitted!!! I actually loved my training sessions and now we are back to porridge I am going to keep up the good work!!!! (From 10 stone to 9 stone in 2 months! Thanks to Mick at Live Life NI!!!) So, I have been involved in so many weddings and I did think I would avoid the last half hour of hysteria before going out the door of my family home - not so much! It was hectic! Makeup was thrown on, as was the dress and we were out the door, in the car and off to the church!   Up until...

One month in and I am getting FIT!!!

One month in and I am getting FIT!!!

What a shocking statement... I promised I wouldn't turn into fitness bridal barbie and guess what - the fear of fitting into the dress has ushered in a frantic get fit quick routine! No doubt you will see me power walking the coastal route from Bangor to Helen's Bay and if so - say hi!!! Being encouraged by my friendly PT also helps...anyone interested in going from sofa to sweating should def check out Michael at Live Life NI! He is hardcore - but lovely with it! So, 10 weeks to go then! Along side getting fit I have also been eating well(ummm..'better' is maybe a more accurate way of describing...

Take a deep breath…

So church, venue, dress all purchased. Mother of the Bride and my wonderful little Bridesmaid is now all sorted too! And (the groom is most excited about this bit..) the honeymoon is now confirmed! But I have many other things to tick off my list and one of them is to get my skin glowing again! So I had my first Vital Elastine facial last week and my skin is playing ball! Looking much fresher and having over an hour of peace and quiet was good for the soul as well! Prepping for a wedding is one thing but looking after my beautiful salon is just as important! We will soon be launching a very...

A little bit of good news for DHMB followers!

Is it possible to get married in 4 months?! well people...i am going to give it a go!!!!! A year ago a lovely guy came to frost the windows of the new salon and I think i won him over with my offer of a freddo bar! So last week we decided to get hitched! I have a plan of action that includes Yon-Ka facials, body treatments and some Vita Liberata tanning! I also am going to pamper my Mum and get her looking fresh and glowing - so she can be a very youthful MoB!! I hope to post some pics and you can follow our progress! I would love to convince Andrew that he would enjoy a facial...
