PACKING FOR CHRISTMAS

It’s time! My mum and dad are on the way to collect me and it’s time to head home for few days. I cannot wait! The only challenge is packing for a few days when I want to bring everything I own with me. I’ll only be home ten minutes and will regret not bringing that new jumper which I didn’t know if I’d keep but now that it’s back in my wardrobe in Dublin, I want to wear it.…

Paris and Penneys

I do love Paris in the Spring time as the song goes, but I also love it in the Winter as I discovered last week. I headed off to the city of love with two of my blogger pals to take in the sites but more importantly to shoot some Winter outfits to share with you. I cannot tell you how cold it was as the wind swept around the Louvre in this picture! But I made sure that most…

PENNEYS PICKS

You know how I love Penneys right? Well, since I always post my outfit images and how I style up my looks, I thought I would share my favourite items that are in store right now. Walking into a store that size with so much to choose from is a tough challenge, so fear not, I am here to help focus your shopping on some pieces which I think are very stylish buys.  I have been harping on about knitwear…

TREND OVERSIZE KNITWEAR

Oversize knitwear is having a moment. This year, I’ve styled so many pieces to make them look practical and appealing without making looks seem like I dived into a loom and emerged a giant ball of wool. I’ve chosen some lovely pieces to style this Winter, and one such piece is this red jumper from Penneys. Ok, ok, I know, another red jumper. But the feel of this one made me choose it, and not just the colour. It’s like…

SEEING RED

SEEING RED

I’m not usually a wearer of red. It either reminds me of Snow White or Little Red Riding Hood, both of which are childhood heroines and I just can’t live up to the expectations of either in all honesty. But Primark have come out with a shade of red that I can accept on my fair skin. I find that blue-tone reds work better; they have strength which is good on me and if I match them with a print…

MY HOLIDAY STYLE WITH PRIMARK

Hello from Spain! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be on holidays! It has been a long time coming, and having not had two weeks off in two years, I think I might just deserve it! You may have read my Packing Guide from last week and I tell you it was even a challenge to stick to my own guidelines! But, saving €70 on a checked bag for both flights was a good saving and I…

MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS UNDER €10

You know I am a beauty fiend and I wanted to share some of my favourite beauty products under €10/£10 that I use all the time. My biggest learning point since introducing a beauty section to the blog is that sometimes the best quality products are not necessarily by premium brands. Yes, we love luxury yet my feedback from followers is that they want a balance of budget in their make up bag. I’m lucky in that a lot of…

SUMMER BEAUTY MUST HAVES

There are so many products I wanted to add to my Summer Beauty Must Haves posts, so much so I am going to split them all up into a series over the next few weeks. I’m starting with a little mixture of SPFs and skincare that I have been using this past month. Firstly, we know the risks of being in the sun without the protection of good sun screen. I know this all to well having been sun burned…

WEARING A DRESS OVER JEANS (IT’S OK)

WEARING A DRESS OVER JEANS (IT’S OK)

Have you got a dress you love that you feel you can only wear when you have your tan done and the sun is out? I have several, including this one from Penneys that I just adore. But since summer comes and goes, I wanted to find ways to wear it when Ireland is buried under cloud cover. So that’s where denim comes in. It’s absolutely a-ok to a dress over jeans. I did this when I was a teenager…
