About Me

Originally from Rathfarnham, I moved to Shankill in 2008. I live with my husband Brian & Bichon Frise, Muffin. 

In April 2009, I set up mwah.ie. It was an outlet for me to express myself and share my beauty tips, experiences and general waffle.

In July 2010, I started my weightloss journey with Weight Watchers and I decided to blog about the ups & downs of dieting including weekly weigh-in updates, which has gained many followers. In June 2011, 51 weeks later I achieved my goal and obtained my WeightWatchers Gold Card membership. My weightloss (at it’s best) was 50lbs or 3 stone 8lbs. Although my decisions with regard to eating and exercise are much more informed, I suppose I know my weight is always going to fluctuate. It’s a part of my life and I love my food.

I enjoy fashion, and shopping would be one of my main hobbies! Make up and beauty is where it’s at for me, I love trying new products and reviewing them and of course visiting new salons & trying new treatments is my favourite way to relax.

I have a passion for designer handbags… I would rather save up for 1 or 2 handbags a year than buy 20 cheaper ones.

Since my weightloss journey I have got a little more handy in the kitchen. I’ve started cooking a lot from scratch so I know exactly what is going into my food and I love my Jamie Oliver cookbook.

One other thing is I have a bit of an obsession with the colour pink! Obviously as a child I could be found in pink and then like most girls I believe I rebelled against it until I was about 15 when the obsession was at its max! I even had my hair dipped in pink. Now it’s a bit more subdued but there is still a splash of pink in my personality.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it, please feel free to drop me a line :) lee[at]mwah.ie
