These sundried tomatoes in olive oil look divine,

If you have sensitive skin, fragrance is not your friend. So we love the non-perfumed Pretty Big Volume Mascara from Misslyn in “pretty black” No. 1. The special applicator rocks. It’s €8.45 from pharmacies and www.BeautyBay.com 

Our other mascara crush is the fibre fused offering from Fuschia. Fab if you’re looking for that big lash look. We love the glossy finish. €16.95 fromFuschia’s two stores, pharmacies and online at www.fuschia.ie 

The upcycle challenge is a great addition to the 2017 SuperValu TidyTowns competition. Love this idea of painted tyres for plant beds.Share your pics and ideas using the hashtag #supervalutidytowns. www.supervalu.ie 

We spotted the fun and colourful Under the Sea collection at Parfois in Mahon Point Shopping Centre recently. It’s inspired by all things marine and our favourite is this lobster pin. €8.99 www.parfois.com/en/ 

We adore the ‘Style is Art’ floral hardback notebook, it includes original sketches by the Newbridge Silverware design team. It’s €20, in stockists and newsagents nationwide. www.newbridgesilverware.com 

The shoe of the summer is the Überknit from FitFlop. Superstylish and minimal, these are ergonomically engineered so super comfy too. It’s a feelgood fit in every sense. There’s a choice of ballerina or sneaker styles in all sorts of gorgeous colours, starting at €100. @FitFlopIreland #forsuperwom
