Small Primark/Penneys Haul 

I’m waiting on an outfit to come into Penneys, so I have been in there nearly every day this week. 

The first top I picked up has pearls on the sleeve, it’s so cute and have to say it looks like it’s from Zara and only €13. 


This top looks black but more navy blue gingham, its also €13. I love the long sleeves on this top. 


Happy Shopping

Memories 

I always have this vivid memory as a child of going to my first concert, I was ten years of age and my sister brought me to see boyzone in the point (3arena). 

The counting down the days telling everyone in school and deciding what to wear, which of course was my Boyzone t-shit.

The day of the concert we got the train into town the whole family wore excited for me. My sister had a few surprises to make it even more special, Instead of walking to the point we got a boat down, 

I remember been shocked and little nervous by all the people when we got to our seats, I was so small I could hardly see anything as everyone was taller than me. 

Now you have to remember this was 21yrs ago so health and safety wasn’t as big an issue, so are seats wore right at the stairs so my sister got me to stand on the stairs how I could see the gig, security did come over but my sister explained I couldn’t see and it was my first concert so they let me stay there for the night. 

The concert lived up to everything and more, I remember everyone stamping there feet and feeling the vibrations on the floor and being so a excited when my sister got me a program and just thinking this was the most amazing night ever. 

After the concert we got back on the boat and my sister took me to Eddie rockets it was my first time eating there it was even more exciting being in town so late. 

Thinking back on this memory today brought tears to my eyes, thinking that children lost there lives going to there first concert instead of it being a happy evening it was a nightmare. 

My parents waited up to hear all about my first concert, last night parents stayed up because they couldn’t find there children and prayed they wore still alive. 

Like most people yesterday’s attack shocked and sickened me as children wore targeted. I have to wonder what kind of world we live in, I hope and prey this never happens again. 

I know this is very different from my normal posts but yesterday we lost so much innocence in one night, I felt like it was only fitting.

Penneys/Primark shoe haul 

Penney’s are just killing it when it comes to shoes at the moment.

Well you will notice the same shoes in different colours, I know that’s bad but I can’t walk in heels so when I find a shoe with a heel I can walk in I always go a little over board.

Well let’s start with the flats, these are perfect for day time and I love gingham which is huge at the moment so I couldn’t say no and they are €11.

Up next are the sensible work shoe, now I have these in black and they are so comfy and the nude is perfect for summer €14.

Up next are my favourites as soon as I spotted them I knew I had to have them in every colour. Now the pictures do not do them justice and they tie up your leg and the heel is perfect for me.

Last but not least is this cute little bag, there is just something about this bag that screams summer to me and it was €8.

Corset Belt

I picked up the corset belt in Penney/Primark for €5 I went for the black one but also come in khaki and cream.
As soon as I picked it up I knew I wanted to wear it with a man’s white shirt and guess what Penney’s/Primark have them for €7.

R35397151484816-medium

This look is very different from what I normally wear as its very low cut and you can see my bra, which is something I normally don’t like but as soon as I spotted the belt this was the look that popped in my head.

Afternoon Tea at the Westin 

As far as I am concerned, The Westin is the best place in Dublin to have afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea is served in the Atrium lounge which is such a pretty setting, it’s hard to believe you are in the heart of Dublin City centre. Afternoon tea is priced at €34 per person.


This place is perfect for a special occasion, the staff are so friendly and couldn’t do enough. 

Of course I did get a little dressed up, I decided to go a little summary and wore gingham culottes from Penneys/Primark, I think they are €15 and white tiered sleeve top from Boohoo €10 and my YSL handbag.



Hope everyone had a great bank holiday

Lots of love
