10 Years On….

Ten years on… everything and nothing has changed. Today marks 10 years since i was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Ten years. A decade. Not your typical anniversary. Not one you would celebrate anyways. This diagnosis came after 2 years of widespread pain, confusion, tests, doctors and tears. I finally had my answer. Or so i thought. Little did i know that, that was only the start of what was to come. Paddy’s week is always a hard one for me. Not that i need a reminder, i feel and live it everyday but there is something about this day passing and another year going by that absolutely floors me. My family and friends try their best to tell me it all…

Cold Wardrobe Staples

  I am both delighted and honored to be collaborating with Simply Be again. Two of my favourite things i worked on last year where also SB collabs. There was the Curvy Girl’s Guide To Summer Dressing and also the really popular Steal Holly Willoughby’s Style. Click on either if you fancy a read and maybe some inspiration. I say this every time but when i have an idea to put together, Simply Be are right up there, as size wise i can include so many and i am all about that life! Not to mention that they have all the styles i’m looking for and more. Getting right into it, the title was going to read Winter Wardrobe Essentials,…

I spied something that stopped me in my tracks and i said i best get it out quickly. This polka dot tulle skirt! I actually bought the dress option but given my fall i’d not been able to show it off before it sold out. What a shame because it’s a great little number to have for Christmas dressing. With the skirt still in stock i thought ok get some ways to wear done quick Kiera! So here we are. Tulle has been pretty…

Carraig Donn Curve

As i joyfully announced the other week Carraig Donn have introduced a curve range in sizes 16-28. Yay! I was delighted when they reached out and asked did i wanna try some bits.? Umm yeah! Inclusivity is something i live for and it really gets my blood pumping when i see more and more brands moving forward in the right direction. I am familiar with CD as a brand after styling some looks using their pieces for In Tallaght Magazine. That and my mother is obsessed with their homewares. So down to the nitty gritty with things worth a mention. Personally i found the sizing really good. I had a little bit of room in the pieces i tried, just…

LBD – Little Boho Dress

Changing up the meaning of the famous abbreviation ‘ LBD ‘ to what it means to me Summer after Summer. Little boho dresses really epitomise Summer. Soft , light and so care-free. Minus the fear of a spillage that is. Boho or bohemian style go hand in hand with the season. Whether it is holidays, BBQ’s or festivals , this choice of dress has got you covered. Think smock and floaty styles in lightweight fabrics. Lace and crochet play a heavy part too. Little Boho Dress I touched on festivals briefly above and honestly any festival inspo posts that I’ve ever done have had little white / cream floaty dresses featured. If i remember right my go to way to…
