Hair clips

Hair clip trend has around for a while now and it’s a trend I really like but you don’t want to break the bank.

I always look for cheap alternative’s for trends like this, AliExpress is the perfect place to look. Just type pearl hair clips into the search bar and thousand come up. The main tip I have from buying from Aliexpress is always read the reviews before buying and of course expect a long wait.

They wore €1.22 each

€ 1.12

€1.07

€1.08

This clip is my favourite €1.21

As you can see, the most expensive clip I got was €1.22. The quality is amazing for that price and the wait didn’t bother me.

Happy shopping

Lots of love

Penney’s/Primark Haul

I’ve been trying not to shop at the moment, but have been failing miserably as Penney’s just keeps getting better and better.

Everything is summer fashion as I’m very excited for my holiday.

First up khaki swimsuit, this is a small fit so I’d nearly size up €14

Okay I am slightly obsessed with polka dots so this dress had to be mine, it’s a linen blend and is €12

This is a matching set and it’s also a linen blend. The shorts are not to short which is perfect but haven’t said that I’m 5″1 so most things aren’t that short on me.

The blazer is €23

Shorts are €14

Last year on holidays, I suffered badly with pigmentation on my face. Yes I did have sun cream on factor 50 and regularly putting it on, I didn’t get burned just pigmentation. So this year I will be wearing a hat.

€5

€5

My Christmas

I hope everyone had a Happy Christmas. Christmas is all about traditions, in my house you always got one present Christmas Eve and of course Christmas Eve pyjamas.

This year I went for the grinch pyjamas and I just love my Christmas Eve box

It alway has things for a relaxing Christmas Eve, face mask, nail polish, shower gel, grinch sock and my favourite jelly’s.

Christmas Day, I have to say I was spoiled rotten this year, with all my favourites.

On Christmas Day, I wore my Warehouse sale outfit. That just arrived on Christmas Eve and I love a co-ordinate.

On Christmas night, I always have new pyjama. I’m a little bit obsessed, with pyjamas.

St Stephen’s day, is always a fun day. It’s is nearly like a second Christmas Day, as we alway have another big turkey dinner.

I wore a suit, I picked up in Penney’s/Primark, a few months ago. This suit had to be taken up the joys of been 5’1. I also picked up a white knit jumper also from Penney’s/primark.

I did pick up a few bits in the sales and I cannot wait to show you, it’s abit annoying as it all has to be taken up first.

Happy shopping

Lots of love

Day One

I was not disappointed at all by this calendar, HD brow Colour Pro Palette.

Afternoon tea at clontarf castle 

Last week I met the girls for afternoon tea in clontarf castle.

The afternoon tea is held in the reception area, now  you don’t feel like you are on top of each other but you it very busy with people checking in and out thich in the winter you would be very cold with that door opening.

Our waitress went though each tea with us and explained there afternoon tea is a little different. It comes in two sections the bakery and than the cake shop. I was a little boring and stuck with coffee.


The bakery came first with a selection of Sandwiches, now these wore not normal sandwiches each one was not just different but on different breads. My favourite was the the sirloin grilled and served on ciabatta with sticky onion jam.


It’s hard to believe after that you have any room left but when you see the cake shop you just about manage to find a second wind.



Again it was all very tasty the scones were perfect but my favourite was the shortbread with cream and strawberries.

Our waitress, was so friendly and checked if we had enough tea and coffee. We also all left with a little doggy bag for later. I have to say this is a perfect for a girls day out or even a romantic treat with your other half.

Afternoon tea is priced at €36.95 Click here for more details.

Lots of love
