My shirt dress!

Mo Laethanta Saoire Part 2 (my summer holidays)!!

On the second day of our trip we traveled to Dingle. Dingle is absolutely beautiful. It's a very traditional town so your are always guaranteed good music in the pubs. We went out to sea to see the local attraction Fungi the dolphin! It was actually very cool as he stayed by the boat the whole time! My inner child escaped on that boat! We spent our first day on Inch beach, it is my favorite place in the whole world. The second day we spent our day on tiny beach near Slea Head, it was beautiful but the water currents were very strong! The aztec skirt I'm wearing I have worn before, I
bought it way back in ZARA. I dressed it down with a plain white top and simple perspex neon necklace from H&M. My fuchsia pink dress I bought a year ago in Forever21 in London. I love it and I haven't seen anyone with it which makes me love it more!!

 Mo laethanta saoire na hÉireann Part 1 (My holidays in Ireland!)

 I had such a wonderful weekend last weekend. A big group of us traveled to the south west of Ireland. The weather was gorgeous which just made it so enjoyable. Living in Ireland I don't know if we truly appreciate the beauty of our coastline but all I can say is after my trip, Ireland is defiantly one of the most beautiful countries. Here are a few pictures from our first night!

So being away for a full weekend meant a big suitcase of clothes! I am adoring my new cami and arm cuff I bought recently in River Island. I love these patterned cigarette trousers I got when I was in London. Metallics are going to be as huge in Autumn/Winter as they were this summer! They add fun to any outfit and is defiantly head turning! This new purchase of mine is from Zara. My ear cuff can be bought in H&M! Tomorrow I will post about our second day xx

Just another casual day

Shirt - Primark
Joggers - River Island
Ring/Bracelets - H&M

The weather is still fabulous here in Ireland, we have been really blessed! Long may it last. I'm on nights this week at work so it gives me a great opportunity to catch up on the blogs I love reading and work on my own! This outfit is one of my favourites, that I bought in London recently. The tropical print on my trousers is so colourful and pretty. They are very light making them very comfy to wear in this weather. I just love this denim crop shirt. It is a big fitting shirt but I think it gives it character and I am loving the ivory button detail. How cool is my ring?! Very eye catching! Speaking about working on my own blog, is there anything you would like to do/blog about or do something differently? All your feedback is greatly appreciated! I love my followers x

Beauty products pennies live for!

I rarely do beauty posts but I have so much coming up this month I don't think my face will be seeing MAC any time soon! There is a lot of high street brands creating products that are almost identical to those brands that are more expensive. I buy a lot of beauty products and I am always drawn to two brands, Catrice and GOSH Cosmetics. Not only are they as good as top brands they are so pocket friendly you can't help but stock up. They are always on trend with each seasons statement colours and all at a budget price. I have selected five products from each brand which I have tried and tested. So, here goes!


1 - Eye Brow Stylist // 2 - Eye Brow Set // 3 - Prime and Fine Base
4 - Gel Eye Liner Brush // 5 - Prime and Fine Eye Shadow Base

Catrice's eyebrow products are long lasting and allow you to achieve your desired shade. The prime and fine base does what it says but can leave a residue on your hands, but for the price it is only a minute issue! Catrice does excellent beauty tools if you are looking for a quick fix. Products range from €1.50 to €6.00

GOSH Cosmetics

1 - Velvet Touch Lipstick // 2 - X-Ceptinal Wear Foundation // 3 - Velvet Touch Primer
4 - Volume Lipgloss (soft coral) // 5 - Natural Blush Box
GOSH is a little bit more expensive than Catrice, ranging from €7 to €15. I love all of GOSH's products and rate them all to the highest standards. The only issue I have, is the above primer leaves your hands feeling almost silky but to a point where everything you pick up is sliding from your grip. If putting this on with with your fingers, wash hands thoroughly. I adore GOSH's blusher, it's very easy to apply and long lasting.

What's your favourite high street brand?

"You look like a Coke can" she said!

Always trust your best friend for a compliment! I'm currently loving my Coca Cola crop tee from Primark and my wet look skater skirt from River Island. I adore big chains and even more, love clashing them with clothes to make a statement. You can find this amazing piece at New Look. As I said in my last post, metallics are huge this season and will continue into AW13. I bought these gold heeled boots in Zara last year. they are perfect for making a statement or finishing off a look!

I need you in my life!

1-Choies // 2-River Island // River Island
4-River Island // 5- River Island // 6-Motel // 7-Motel

So being back from a shopping holiday just gives you the itch to shop some more but unfortunately in my case my bank account is on strike! Metallics and jellie shoes are so on trend right now and I want a taste of them, alas I will have to wait! I'm seriously loving 6, the amazing lime green jellies by JuJu Jelly. How cute is 2 from River Island? I love crop tops and this yellow fun hippie tee from Choies is perfect for a casual look. Be brave and embrace your inner space man with 4 also from River Island

What are your right now must haves?

Jack Daniels!

Firstly, I want to say thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post, I have been so busy I haven't been able to reply to them all! Today was another scorcher, I could really get use to this 30 degrees heat! I adore this Jack Daniels tee I got in London  I had seen one here in River Island but didn't get it, how bad I purchased this one for only £6 pound in a local  market in Camden, happy days! My style is very girly so I love teaming rock tees with pretty skirts! I bought this skirt last year in Penneys/Primark. 

How are you spending your sun kissed days?

London Town!

I am just back from visiting my brother in London and I had the most amazing time. The weather was great, the company was great and the shopping did not disappoint either! I bought some lovely pieces which I will share with you over the next few weeks. On my first night I went to my brother's friends house. We had such a good  night. I fell in love with a Kermit the frog bag which unfortunately I wasn't allowed to take home! We went to the London Zoo on Sunday. The weather hit 30 degrees, it was perfect. The sunshine really does put you in great form! I have to say I loved the monkeys and giraffes. I've always dreamt about having a pet monkey like Ross from Friends!! I was so sad coming home today but London I will be back! Here a re a few of my favorite pics!

Have you ever been to London Zoo? Did you enjoy it?

Minnie mouse sunshine!

Heat wave is here!! Had a lovely day today out in my sister in law's. Spent the the day bouncing on a trampoline with her three year old. Note to self to do not wear a skirt when going on one, it can be disastrous! I have had these clothes for forever and again they cannot be thrown away! A cute Disney tee is always good to make an outfit fun and casual. Necklace if from Penney's.
