MakeUp Gallery Vintage Rose Shadow

I’ve never really been one for brightly coloured eyeshadows. I mainly stick to golds and browns. The Naked 1 palette from Urban Decay to be exact. I am loving all the berry tones that are big right now though. So I’ve started using ‘star Violet’ from MAC again and i‘m really liking it. That brings me onto this Dealz bargain. I saw this and thought id give it a go. This shadow is ‘Vintage Rose 6’ from the Makeup Gallery range.              It is really well pigmented for the product it is. I hope you can see this my eyes are sooooo puffy wehhh. At €1.49 like the rest of the range, perfect for trying out…

PS Love Multi Use Highlighting Pencil

Picked up this handy little highlighter from the PS Love range in Penneys. Multi use and €1.50…sold. It is like i say handy. You have more control with a pencil then you have brushing a powder or cream onto your skin. l used this under my brows and in my cupids bow. It did the job. Use this as you would with any highlighter. On your cheeks, nose, above the lips and brows or in the inner eye. It was alot heavier then i thought and it did feel a little cakey at my brow. That being said, it‘s a bargain for on the go highlighting.              The picture below shows a swatch of the creamy pencil.…

Mesh Dot Drills

These are one of the coolest things i’ve bought in forever. These polka dot mesh espadrilles are €7 from Penneys. They are just so cool that, i find i keep looking at my feet. ZARA had some of these last summer and i absolutely adored them. How chuffed am i that the Primark gods have sorted us out.            That typical summer vibe you get from normal espadrilles but the black mesh make them really modern. Did i mention cool? I might get a second pair as a back up, although i think ill size down, my feet keep sliding out. Primark have a pair of ballet pumps made from this mesh fabric due in. They…

Ways To Wear: White Denim Jackets

White denim is epic. Not the tack it once was. It’s clean, bright and fresh. Beyond delighted with this jacket! I had one on my wishlist. Only €13 from Penneys.  I know some of you might be like wtf but bare with me. Styled right this will be so cute. Im thinking worn with a breton striped dress or maxi dresses, or even just a simple red & white striped tee. Double denim? Or clashed with other denims. This will look great with khaki too. White denim for summer is a must. Bright, fresh and can be styled for a modern take on a retro piece. Roll or scrunch up the sleeves to do this. See here some ways to style…

The Upper Cuff

I have very vivid memories of me rocking around Butlin’s back in the day with a silver spiral band on my upper arm. Serious 90’s child trying to get in on the trend. Probably should have been born in the 70’s really.  Armlets have never really gone away, they just became more bohemian, a beach-life style. Two summers ago i was searching high and low for some really cool arm cuffs to not much look. I resorted to making my own. Thanks to the gorgeous boho vibes this season is bringing, stuff i usually lust for are litterally falling at my feet. Look how beautiful and carefree these look. Most of the High Street has got in on the action doing…

Quilted Bomber Blazers

One of My favourite pieces from my wardrobe is this ASOS quilted jacket. It was a sell-out if i remember right. I wanted it for sooo long, There was a skirt too which i never managed to get my hands on.Insert sad-face. I love this because it is a cool statement piece but also a staple as i can wear it all year. Being quilted it gives some warmth layered in winter but its not that heavy that you cant wear it in summer. I do like quilting in general,its rich. The colour and print are great, i can match or clash so much with it. It has a bomber type look so can be really cool but also the…
