WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAUTE COUTURE WEEK

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAUTE COUTURE WEEK

Before I get into detail about Haute Couture week which is happening in Paris right now, I need to explain my absence. You will have noticed that BLOGMAS stopped for me half way through December and that was not due to a lack of interest or work getting in the way. A family member of mine took very ill in the run up to Christmas and sadly passed away on Christmas day. It has been a rough time for us…

BLOGMAS DAY 18 NEW YEAR’S EVE OUTFITS

I love planning my new year’s eve outfits; it’s a bit ironic that I always stay at home with friends coming for dinner but you still have to get dressed up even for a party in the kitchen! Look, I’ll find any excuse. It’s a time for glam, so don’t hold back. I love to find something a bit in-between. What I mean is you need to find something you can wear again or maybe re style. I love to…

BLOGMAS DAY 11 AFFORDABLE PRESENTS AND MARIAH CAREY

You are probably wondering why Mariah Carey is in my heading? Well last night my friends at Primark took a group of we bloggers and press off to London to see the Queen perform. And oh my was she good! She has not lost her voice and in fact I was so surprised at how pitch perfect she was. The O2 is an amazing venue due to it’s sheer size, and we also were treated to watching the concert from…

BLOGMAS DAY 10 DESIGNER HANDBAGS

(Click on the + to get item details)  I love designer handbags and I cannot always afford them but that won’t stop me from making a wish list of some pieces I think are so covetable. I will naturally ask for one of these but the chances of Santa bringing me one are slim. That said, if you fancy adding a beautifully crafted piece to your wardrobe, look no further than my designer handbags edit for your Christmas present list.…

BLOGMAS DAY 9 GIFT FOR HER

It’s day nine and it’s about time we started on some great gift ideas, so let’s start with the girls and gift for her! It’s hard to decide to what to buy as it is and based on my shopping guide from yesterday, budget it super important. Girls are fussy, well this one is, and my family hate buying me presents. My mum asks me for ideas during the summer as she says it takes me that long to come…

BLOGMAS DAY 8 THE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DAY

Christmas shopping is challenging. And it’s even more challenging when you decide to go on the busiest shopping day of the year. December 8th has typically been the day when I used to come to Dublin to do my Christmas shopping (we got a day off school years ago) alongside a lot of other residents of the country side. Where I lived, at the time, there were basically no shops. That’s all changed now but I still love to pop…

I love getting dressed up and party wear is in abundance this season. I have had a busy week but I have been invited to some lovely things after work which have given cause to get my glad rags on! Wednesday night was a fabulous Cartier party to celebrate the collection of watches on display (you can buy them too) at Weir & Sons on Dublin’s Grafton Street. Cartier are the most luxurious brand in the world and I was…

BLOGMAS DAY 5 CHRISTMAS STOCKING FILLERS

One of the most popular things to write about is  Christmas Stocking Fillers and I write them to inspire myself more than anything. I have been doing a lot of research to find some lovely (and some local!) gift ideas that are under €25. From the costume jewellery lover to the stationery aficionado, I’ve tried to give some varied ideas. If you have still yet to figure out what to buy for your loved ones, take a look at what…
