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

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

Zara Shirt Dress

Around Christmas I fell out of love with blogging, I’m not really sure why but I decided I just didn’t want to do it anymore.
I carried on posting pictures on Instagram but I started missing blogging so I’ve decided to give it another shot but this time I’m not going to worry about stats and putting up posts on time.

Last weekend was the bank holiday weekend and it was also sunny so I got to wear my new dress, I got it for my holiday which isn’t till September. It’s a Zara Mustard shirt dress and its €39.95 click here to buy, as the buttons go to the side its very flattering on. I wore it with basket bag that I picked up last year in the Zara sale.

Again this look is from Penneys/Primark, I love the co-ed set. The denim jacket I wasn’t sure of as I think I am way to old but I love it and i just decided to feck it and go with it the bag and shoes are also Penneys.

As you may notice my hair is alot longer theses are extension but they are the clip in once as I have curly hair, extensions would be a nightmare. These are great and so easy to pop in.

I did buy them for work but they are to shinny ,I decided to keep them as I will wear them on a night out instead they are on sale for €20 again I think they wore €40. I know, I need to keep receipts.

Again another work buy, Black patent tassel loafers these are so comfortable on and perfect for work, I’m not really a heels type of girl in work and these are smart looking on sale for €24 they wore €44.

Dorothy Perkins

Rant Alert, this dress I picked up in the shop and it was on sale for €20 it was €45 again this is for work. I was so happy with this find and the dress is lovely on. So today I check online to link it on here and its on sale for €26 but onsale for £20 on the uk site that is €6 extra its always the same with Dorothy Perkins they always rip you off in euro, this really annoys me about retailers.

River Island Sale

The River Island sale started when I was on holidays so I quickly went on and purchased two items which is very good for me.

At the moment the pound is very bad so if you are shopping purchase in pounds as it works out cheaper.

The first item i picked up is Chanel inspired slingbacks, these shoes are amazing and very expensive looking. I think they wore £50 I paid £25 as I paid for them in sterling sadly they are sold out .

Life update

I’ve become so lazy with my blog lately, as I am loving instagram and the stories. I never got into snapchat but I still do use it, I think because I seem to have a lot of men following me on their. Which is strange and I get a lot of message from them informing me I shop way to much lol.

So gonna also use my life update as my bits and bobs shopping that I haven’t shown you yet, this weeks bit and bobs, is PJ’s and Slippers. I picked up a few weeks ago from you guessed it Penneys/Primark. I’m just loving the rabbit ear slipper, I even picked up a secound pair.img_5968-1

 I have been living in the bath latly after I paid a visit to lush, I just love bath bombs and they are so relaxing.

The first one I used was you’ve been mangoed bath oil, I have never used a bath oil from Lush before, first thing you notice is it is very small compared to the bath bombs and it smells amazing very citrus which maked me think of holidays. Now their is no bubbles with this one but the smell makes up for it, also left my skin feeling very soft only thing is it left the bath with a green making where the water was, I kinda thaught I was that dirty turned out it wasn’t me lol.

img_6208

Up next was Karma Bubble bar, I love bubbles so this was perfect again its citrus smell which I love and the glitter which I like. The day I used this Karma, I was wrecked and had the bath just before bed to help me relax and it worked a treat.

Next up is Sakura bath bomb  which is disapointing the smell isn’t that strong and didn’t change the bath water that much just to a pinkish colour so was very disapointed.

So last week in Ireland and again this week is a bus strike on Thursday and Friday, so I have been on the 6.15am train in the morning that explains my tiredness. On Friday I ended up going to work with no make up on, don’t worry it was still dark out and I done my make up when I arrived in so because I was so early I had loads of time to do it and take my time.

I’m loving No7 lipstick I’m going to do a proper review on it.

img_6358

Also I finally wore my new shirt from Penney/Primark and sleevless Camel jacket from River Island which I love and is perfect in this weather.

img_6361

On Sunday I headed out to Howth for a walk.

I ended up in the market, hich is held every weekend in Howth where I picked up these amaing mini cupcakes which are €1.70 each they wore yum

Hope everyone had a great week

Pyjama Top Trend

Wearing Pyjamas as outerwear is a huge trend at the moment.
I’m not sure I could pull of the full pyjama look so I’m sticking with the top, now this does not mean I’m wearing my PJ top out.

Of course when their is a new treand I want to try, I always go to Penneys/ Primark first and I picked up three PJ style tops at €11 each.

D35397146957356-xlargeD35397146957431-xlargeD35397146957516-xlarge

To me this style is about keeping it about the top so keep it simple, by adding delicate necklace or a choker, jeans, heels or backless loafers which is another treand that is huge at the moment.

pictures from Printerest

Or even a pencil skirt

IMG_6255[1].JPG

I have already worn the white top out with choker and black jeans and heels.
I did get one or two comments about wearing a pyjama top out but it was mainly from men lol.
