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

Penney’s Haul

Nearly everything in this haul is for summer, I booked a holiday this week Miami and Eastern Caribbean cruise.

I think it’s better to pick up swimwear as soon as it hits the shops as there is a better selection.

First up is swimwear

Yellow swimsuit priced at €14

Orange swimsuit

Of course I had to get sunglasses €3.

Jumpsuit €20, this is perfect for throwing on for breakfast. I love jumpsuits they are so comfortable and easy to wear.Midi button dress €18, I live midi dress as I’m not fan of showing of my legs, again easy dress to wear. Perfect for sightseeing or lunch. Shorts €8 again easy to wear just add a white t-shirt

As soon as I seen this bag, I knew it would look fabulous with the orange swimsuit.

It’s a little expensive for Penney’s €16 but it’s a perfect for Miami Beach.

I picked up a jumper priced at €15 which isn’t for holidays, I love the splash of red and the leopard print.

Happy shopping,

Lots of love,

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

Birthday Outfit

Last weekend was my Birthday and of course I went out for dinner with the girls, which of course means a new outfit.

Well kind of new outfit, I got this jumpsuit in the sale in River island all the way back in August and as soon as i got it, I was like thats my birthday outfit sorted.

This is a culotte jumpsuit but on me its just a jumpsuit, that fits me. Its also dark green but looks black in all the pictures.

Now you can see how short I am, as its nearly at the models knees.

We want for dinner in Tuscana in Temple bar the food was yum and the staff wore so friendly, I didn’t really take any pictures, which is not like me. I do have one picture of my main, which was steak.

I have to say, I was spoiled rotten on the Sunday and had a lovely day of just chilling in front of the TV. img_3759

Happy Friday,

Lots of Love,

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
