Taylor Morris Eyewear

Taylor Morris Eyewear

I recently discovered Taylor Morris eyewear and last week I had the pleasure of having lunch with founder Hugo Taylor in Harvey Nichols Dublin where the collection has launched to the Irish Market.  Set up in 2013 by friends Hugo Taylor and Charlie Morris, the ethos of the brand is to provide elegant, timeless eyewear that is competitively priced. And honestly, from a design perspective the collection will rival any of the big design houses. In fact, I think I…

OOTD Dorothy Perkins

OOTD Dorothy Perkins

I love being casual on a Saturday, and this outfit from Dorothy Perkins is brand new to what I call my “weekend wardrobe”. It’s been a fairly horrible week weather wise in Dublin, so trying to dress is difficult enough, but this mock shearling jacket is so cosy, that once it’s dry, this is a great Spring cover up. I’m embracing the Seventies trends right now, and a mix of denim with caramel shades really pays tribute to the era.…

My new Vlog!

My new Vlog!

I am so excited about my new vlog! I had always wanted to try the You Tube thing, but never really had time to dedicate to it. But I made it one of my goals for 2016, to try my hand at video as well as continuing with my fashionable words. My new Vlog! So here is my first REAL vlog post on a few of my favourite things at the moment. For beauty, I have been trying Biotherma Misceller…

Spring Summer buckle

Spring Summer buckle

I’ve been reading a lot about the buckle in nearly every magazine this week from Grazia to Look. It’s definitely the shoe trend of the Spring, and for some reason it reminds me of my primary school shoes. But, thankfully, the styles coming onto the shop floors over the next few months are much improved since those I used to wear in the early Eighties. I think these are shoes that I will be wearing with frayed jeans and long…

My Spring High Street Edit

My Spring High Street Edit

I love putting together new outfits for a new season. And with plenty of trawling on sites like Who What Wear and Bloglovin, I have been very inspired to keep my look nice and casual. There are so many trends to choose from, but for my first Spring High Street edit, it’s very much about denim as the staple. The new season trend seems to go for frayed edges, so if you have a stitch unpicker its time to put…

My week with Penneys

My week with Penneys

I love busy weeks. And I especially love when it’s full of lot’s of different things. The perfect start to January, and I hope starting as I mean to continue. It was straight back to business last week with Xposé and we filmed lot’s of fun things from fashion to interiors! It’s a great time to give your home a bit of a makeover and you don’t have to spend a fortune to give it a much needed spruce. I…

OOTD in Dublin

OOTD in Dublin

What a great day to do an OOTD post. It’s a beautiful morning in Dublin. Chilly and dry after a very stormy night. Again. I felt like the roof on the house was going to take flight. But to wake up to bright blue skies in the hustle and bustle of the city is energising. What was also energising was my 7am Yoga class at Yoga Hub Dublin with my office buddy Nadia El Ferdaoussi (you HAVE to read her…

How to Wear Stripes

How to Wear Stripes

Want to know how to wear stripes? Well, here’s my take! Stripes were a big trend in Spring Summer 2015, and this year’s catwalk trends have allowed them to stay once more. I often wonder about stripes and their practicality; I think they can make one’s figure, well, broader. Are they flattering? So we have to find ways to wear them whereby they flatter. I think it’s best to keep them to one piece rather than the head to toe…

OOTD Christmas Day

OOTD Christmas Day

I’m getting a lot of blogging done this week thanks to some down time! My OOTD Christmas Day is one of my favourite looks, thanks to this great dress from Topshop. It was so reasonable too (under €60) and it provided me with a new style opportunity: to get away from wearing black. I’m trying to wear more colour and emerald green has become a good one for my blonde hair/pale skin combination. I was spending Christmas Day with my…

Christmas Eve style

Christmas Eve style

Packing to go home for Christmas causes several dilemmas. Firstly, I can’t bring everything with me. Secondly, I can’t bring all my shoes with me. So the solution, despite sounding ridiculous, is to make a list of outfits. Kind of like how I pack when I go on holidays, but in this case I am only going an hour down the motorway. I love Christmas Eve and spending it with my family in a new house is very exciting. We…
