Cervical Cancer Awareness Week

Some important post fell in the door this week that prompted me to write this post. Davey, my super postman hadn’t got an online order for me, just a plain white envelope. Ripping it open i was met with a logo i was familiar with. It was an invite…. for a smear test. Those three years have certainly flown in. I had shingles at the time of my last one so i remember it well.

2016 Fashion Favourites

Happy New Year! Better late than never right. Everyone is saying it but God that last 12 months just flew. Especially since Summer , time just seemed to whizz by. What a year it has been for many reasons. I wanted to take a look back at the pieces I ardored and loved wearing during the past year. A round-up of my fashion favourites. As usual there were things I completely obsessed over and went on and on about. It doesn’the take much for me to get obsessed with a piece, colour or trend. There were some new editions and some old reliables that stuck with me through the year. Certain stores where all I could shop some months but…

Myleene Klass Brunch With Littlewoods | Christmas 16 Launch

I was beyond honoured to be invited by Littlewoods to have brunch with Myleene Klass for the launch of her Christmas collection. This latest release is Myleene’s 27th collection with the online store. As the saying goes if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. We gathered in the Westbury to have a bite to eat and a goo at the new offerings. Two of my favourite things right there – Brunch and clothes! With free reign to have a rummage through and get a really good look at the selected pieces. Kid’s at Christmas let me tell ya. After lots of ohhhh-ing and awhhh-ing we sat down and brunch was served. Again – unreal! All this and the best was still…

Fifty Friday | Embroidered

The embroidery trend has been huge. Transitioning really well from Summer boho into rich Winter appropriate wear. What started out as a few threads on some denim has really took over the shops. This type of detail adds real interest to an outfit. Fitting in really well with the luxe fabrics and notions that A/W brings. The perfect go-to for the party season for those who are not into all the sparkle and jazz but still want something special. A fine example is a Look i put together here. Something i am fine to continue to do if pieces like that skirt stick around. This is trend that works for day too when you can embroider just about anything. As usual…

Inis Giveaway

If you follow me on Snapchat you will know two things. 1) I am the world’s worst snapper there ever was and B) i had an interesting package arrive last week. You might even remember that a couple of weeks back i ran a little giveaway on Facebook. There was a lot of interest in the prize. Sure it is always nice to win something but what really came through was that a lot of you commented that you had a connection with the Irish scent. I totally get this. Inis has always been popular in our house. Between my sister, my mother and i , there was always a bottle or two knocking about the family home. This was a…

Fifty Friday | Velvet

A couple of weeks back i put together a Look Of The Day post focusing around a velvet dress. I have been meaning to delve more into this trend ever since. The fact that i can incorporate it in a Fifty Friday post, well that is even better. Each look here consists of a piece of velvet in some description , put together as a whole outfit for under €50. Velvet is a perfect Winter fabric. Warm and cosy from the look to the touch. Like i said in that post , the one thing i do love about A/W fashion is how rich and luxurious the clothing is. Decedent prints and opulent fabrics, the whole feel is very regal . A really…

Fake It Till You Make It? The Dangers Of Fake Make-Up

I originally started this post last year as it was something that i was seeing more and more of. For one reason or another , i won’t bore a sister with those deets , i never pressed published. That being said my opinions have not changed on this subject whatsoever. Infact a few things have happened that have pushed me to have my say on the matter. Christmas is just around the corner. Yes that is the first C-bomb I’ve dropped so you know shit’s getting serious. This time of year everybody is looking for presents for their loved ones. Hell you even gotta treat yourself. Money is tight. People just don’t have what they used to but they and…

Brexit | Shopping In Sterling

  No this hasn’t turned into a current affairs type of blog. Although this does serve the point i make about politics quite often. People will say ‘why do you care, it doesn’t affect us’. Oh but it does. It always does. This time however it is in a positive way (for the time being anyways). Since the Brexit vote for the UK to leave the EU, sterling has dropped seriously. As i type this, the pound against the Euro is almost evens. That sh*t cray. For the longest time we lost out so much changing money over for a trip across the water. We heard a lot about the negatives that will affect us as a country but are there…

It’s that time again mmwaaaaha-ha-haaaaw. Halloween is just around the corner incase the incessant amount of bangers and fireworks haven’t given it away. Legit jumping out of my skin daily. So the big dilemma as always is – what to dress up as. I have put together some costume inspiration that you can grab easily from some of your favourite stores. A far cry from the throw a black bag over your head and you’re sorted days. Halloween Costumes I feel there are three types of girls on Halloween. 1- The Sexy / Slutty ANYTHING kind. Umm yeah Hun there is nothing sexier than a giant baby. Blokes love that. The 31st of October is just one giant excuse to wear as…

Men’s Monthly | October

Here it is, the first installment of a new feature – Men’s Monthly. Something new i am trying after several requests. We won’t name any names lads, you know who you are and your wish is my command. On the whole men’s fashion is not something i was ever really into. It just didn’t interest me in the slightest and to be honest i didn’t really understand it. I remember back in college some of the girls were specialising in male fashion or choosing to focus on this for projects. Thinking back, at that time i suppose it wasn’t really a thing. Yeah sure high fashion was there but it was a world away from Joe Soap. With regards to mainstream…
