Posted in Fashion, My week, What I Wore

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

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.

Penneys/Primark Haul

Some of this haul is from the sale racks, penneys are adding more each day. I’m in Penneys most days so I’m keeeping my eye out.

First up is full price items.



Blazer €23, I’ve kept this for work as I have something very similar from Zara.


I’d call this more of a jacket and it’s €25, it’s perfect for the weather in Ireland now and when it’s gets a little colder add a jumper under it.

Now for the trousers, I’m trying to move a little away from jeans.


I love these trousers €15, they look so expensive and are very like a pair from river island.


I haven’t decided about these trousers, if I’m going to add them to my work wear. They are €10 if not I’ll wear them with an over sized knit jumper and runners.


The white shirt is €5 I did pay full price, I now have two. Yellow top is €5. The navy stripe top just €3 and my favourite top is the blacker jumper which I had my eye on for a while and it’s €5.

Happy Shopping

lots of love
