What A Difference A Day Makes - Bernice O'Sullivan - Part One

Tuesday, 24 October 2006


Our what a difference a day makes series is coming to an end for this year but not before it goes out with a bang. Bernice O'Sullivan is our last lucky viewer in this series to receive the ultimate makeover. Let's see what we have in store for her.

Bernice was nominated by her husband Paul.

About Bernie and Paul
They first met in may 1990 and he fell in love with her at sight! But she on the other hand had other things going on like heading off for a year to live her life and see what else is out there; she headed off to Australia in November that year. The night before she left at her going away party Paul got down on his knees and asked her to marry him. She was 24 and he was 27 ready to spend the rest of his life with her. She said he will have to ask that again when she gets home! What a girl!

They kept in touch with each other and he met her in London on her way home a year later and they spent three days with each other and he asked her again. She said yes! True love! They got married and never looked back since. She had her first child Aaron 8 years ago, Then five years later she had triplets! 2 girls (Amanda and Alice ) and a boy (Luke).

The Treatments
Eye brow wax & Tint

Offering precision waxing for both women and men, Brazilia has taken the waxing experience to another level of luxury. Spacious, tranquil treatment rooms, each with their own theme, offer a relaxing and private five star waxing experience whether it's an eyebrow reshape, leg wax or brazilian: the complete range of waxing in maximum privacy and comfort. Brazilia uses Australia's leading wax Lycon, a state of the art waxing system used in exclusive spas and salons around the world.
Rumour has it Uma Thurman, Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman and Victoria Beckham are already big fans. 
Here comes the science
Lycon waxes use only the finest natural resins and aromatherapy oils. They deliver superior results removing stubborn hair as short as 1mm (1/16").
Lycon is a waxing system that incorporates unique cleansing, waxing and after-wax oils. This means a Lycon wax treatment not alone gives a fabulous waxing experience but that the skin is perfectly protected and moisturised.
Lycon's hot wax is super pliable at low temperatures, leaving the skin conditioned with an excellent super smooth finish.
A major plus for those with moles or skin tags is that the specially formulated wax grips and removes the hair only, with no skin drag or sticky residue, leaving all moles in place.
Meet the HOT waxes
. Rosette Wax: creamy pink with chamomile and rose for extra sensitive areas.
. Active Gold Wax: liquid gold in a wax containing calming chamomile and sparkling gold platelets.
. Lycojet Lavander: a rich beautiful purple wax with lavender and chamomile. The sensitive wax with the extra strong grip that can remove hairs as short as I mm! The miracle wax!

Acrylic Nails
Nail Angel is a top quality Nail and Tanning service founded in 2004. They are fully qualified specialists and work to the highest standards. Sometimes it's just not possible to get into the city centre for a treatment! Nail Angel provides a mobile service within the greater Dublin area. So don't go without because you can't get out or you're just to busy. You can have them come to you! It's a great service which is out there yet people don't know about it! Lisa the owner of this blossoming business also works with celebrities and is very personable as well as insuring that you as a client are happy with the end result.
Acrylic Nails are harder wearing than Gel Nails and easier to remove when the time comes. Refills are required every three weeks. Lisa will be coming to Bernice's hotel room to apply the acrylic nails. So Bernice will be as relaxed as ever after all her treatments from that day! Acrylic nails are made up with a mixture of powder and liquid that bonds to form the nail. The nail plate has to be prepared and sanitized before application, set in a UV nail lamp then filed to shape and either glossed or painted for a perfect finish. To keep them looking perfect they need to be filled every three weeks to compensate for nail growth.
