Real Life Fifty Friday | Penneys Spring ’18

This edition of Fifty Friday is a special one. I adore putting together these style posts but i had the idea to try something different. There was only one place to go to kick this new take on the feature. Full head to toe outfits for under fifty euro from the Penneys / Primark Spring 18 collection.   I pitched the idea to the guys at Penneys HQ and was delighted that they wanted to collaborate on this one. As much as i like styling the flatlay images into looks it is always better to see something on the body and in real life. To see how the fit is, how it hangs and sits on curves. Im sure you…

Fifty Friday | Jeans And A Nice Top

I’ve been working on this one for awhile but when i realised i could probably do it for under fifty euro a light bulb went off. It made sense the that the theme for this edition of Fifty Friday would be the age old ‘ Jeans And A Nice Top‘ . There is not a girls group chat in the land that those five words have not made an appearence in. The answer to the question ‘ What are you wearing girls? ‘. Like are we going out-out or just out? This is something that my wardrobe is always lacking in. I have pyjamas and ball gowns. Nothing in between. A nice top is way too handy to have. Solves…

Trouser Suits

Typically two piece trouser suits have been synonymous with menswear,  work or a day in court. Towards the end of last year as Autumn / Winter took hold and statement suits were paving a way for themselves. We had started to see celebrities take risks on the red carpet by ditching the dress in favour of a more androgynous look. A real statement in such an understated and effortless way. More and more offerings crept into the shops making this trend really accessible.   Tailoring and more importantly suits don’t have to be boring. It really comes down to the styling with this one. For those brave enough, for a night out, i think that bralets , lace camis and…

F Your Beauty Standards

Last summer i did something that i never thought i would see myself doing. I shared some snaps of myself in my swimmers for the world to see. It wasn’t anything that ever crossed my mind really. For the most part i am confident in the body i’ve been given. I have to be because it’s the only one i have. I own it …. both physically and litterally. Of course there are parts of me, like my arms for example. I feel more confident when they are covered and same goes for my belly. That is just simple style choices that can go a long way.   Eff Your Beauty Standards   It is plain to see that i…

Fifty Friday | Last Minute New Years Eve Looks

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are not too confused about day it even is. It’s that time though when you wake from the 3 day food coma to the realisation that you have nothing to wear for New Years Eve. I thought a little Fifty Friday was in order (it’s Friday BTW) with a collection of last minute New Years Eve Looks for under fifty Euro. Simple as that i suppose. How it’s here already i will never know. It also only feels like yesterday since i styled my first issue of In Tallaght Magazine, a New Years Eve Shoot. Time is on fast forward i tell ya. Something dawned on me though on Stephenses night…

Christmas Jumper Looks | 12 Pubs

I’ve been doing that thing where you think it’s WAY too early to be dropping C-bombs all over the gaff then all of a sudden it’s December and you’re like sh1t when did that happen! People are already going on their Christmas parties and doing other miscellaneous festive things. Best get my pancake rear-end into gear and get cracking on the 12 pubs get-up. A night where Christmas jumpers are mandatory. No need to sacrifice style though, i mean unless that’s what you are going for then hey no judgement here.   Christmas Jumpers   Christmas jumpers are big business, getting bigger by the year in fact. Merry , fun , warm and mostly a bit hilarious. The choice has…

Woman’s Not Hot

Woman’s not hot… both literally and physically. Today was my first day leaving the house in a week and that required lots of layers but not much thought. I quickly decided on wearing the same red jumper denim shirt combo that i wore this day last week. See i said no thought. I went for a different pair of jeans though as i wanted to wear my tan chelsea boots and these jeans sit on them the best i feel. The fluffy warmth was tonal of the boots which worked out well. Nothing new really here except the H&M bag which i had to have from the moment i saw it, infact i posted about it here. The jumper is…

With Christmas fastly aproaching money gets really tight so i thought this weeks edition calls for some affordable…

Black Friday 2017

This now infamous day was once only something our neighbours across the Atlantic went wild for. Black Friday takes place every year on the day after Thanksgiving. A day where stores put on discounts or special offers. I learnt of the phenomenon through my addiction to good-bad TV. Extreme Couponing showed folk sleeping out in the cold to be first in line when the stores opened. There was actual stampedes and serious tactics used all to bag a good deal. In the past few years, the craze arrived on our shores. After seeing how much of a success it was more and more stores began getting involved. Black Friday now goes on ’til Tuesday with the inclusion of ‘Cyber Monday’.…

H&M Printed Off The Shoulder Dress

Some New Season Newness From H&M To Make A Little Start To My Winter Wardrobe. A Handy Little Winter Floral Dress In a Rich Burgundy Background. In A Winter Colour Palette Without All The Heaviness. Easy To Wear And Add Into Rotation To Transition Through The Seasons.   Dress / Tunic €14.99 Size 8-20   This Dress Was More Like A Tunic On Me If Im Honest. Probably Better For The Season That Is In It Though. I’d Wear It Over Jeans Or A White/Cream Trouser. H&M Hem Lengths Aren’t The Longest And I’m Not That Tall So I Usually Get Away With Them Fine. This One Was A Bit On The Snug Side Across The Chest And Upper Arms…
