Valentines Day Style

I’m single, yet again this year but I actually love Valentine’s Day. I work in the city centre and I love seeing people walking around with flower and even balloons, it always makes me smile.

On valentines days, I think it’s a nice to add something red into your outfit. Now it doesn’t have to be a red dress it could be a handbag or even a red lip.

Here are my Valentines inspired picks.

If you are brave enough to go with the red dress.

River island have an amazing wrap dress €80. Click here to buy

Zara also have a an amazing wrap dress with a sexy split €49.95 click here to buy

If you are not a dress fan perhaps a red top, Penney’s/Primark have an amazing animal print top for €8, just add black jeans, black over sized blazer and heels, you are sorted.

If animal print isn’t your thing, how about a Zara polka dot blouse €19.95 click here to buy.

If you are looking for a small splash of red, what about a handbag.

The bag I picked, it’s a little different but I love it, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day its from Penney’s/Primark €10.

A big trend this year, is a belt bag and this bag is also perfect for Valentine’s Day €19.95 Click here to buy

As for a red lip, I love Mac ruby woo lipstick and lip pencil. It’s perfect red for Valentine’s Day. The lip duo is €34.95 Click here to buy

Hope everyone has an amazing Valentine’s Day.

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

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

I’m really getting into the Christmas spirit this year. I spent yesterday cleaning, don’t worry I will never show you cleaning products as I hate cleaning, I did get the Christmas tree up.

This year we needed a new tree, of course I decided we needed new decorations too, any excuse to go shopping. I ended up getting all the decorations in penneys/primark 40 baubles for €9 you really can’t go wrong.

As you can’t really see the baubles when the lights are on.

Happy shopping

Lots of love

This months star buy 

This months star buy or find is from Penneys. It’s very similar to a river island jacket that’s in stores now priced at €87. Click here to buy.



If you fancy saving a few euro Penneys have something very similar for €30, now that is abit expensive for penneys but the quality is amazing. 



I prefer the jacket from penny’s as I love the shade of pink. 

Happy Shopping

Penneys/ Primark Coordinate

 I have been waiting on this outfit to come into Penneys for the last three weeks. I spotted it on emmakehoe instragams, she is a fashion buyer for Primark/Penneys and I have to say she has amazing taste.

As far as I know it was only stocked in Mary St and Blancharstown so I took an early lunch yesterday to make sure I got my hands on it.

The frill trouser are €16 and the top is €13.

Small Primark/Penneys Haul

I would call this a random haul more than anything, hope you enjoy.

First up is a sale items, I’m aways destroying my iphone case, I normally spend €20 on one but I have been using a cheap one after my last phone case broke and its been grand, so I picked two new cases up today the Marmaid is 50c and the clouds are 10c, for that price I couldn’t say no.

I went in lookng for a light big bag that I could fit loads into it, lunch box umbrella book and so on and spotted this for €12 its prefect.

I can’t wear my heels so when I spot a midi heel, I just have to buy and these are €14 they also have them in gold and dark blue which I may go back to buy.

Summer Jacket on a Budget 

Last week I showed you the Zara jacket, so this week is more of a budget friendly purchase from surprise, surprise Penny’s/Primark.

First up it is a little expensive for penneys but it’s a faux leather jacket with embroidery detail and studs for €35.00 which isn’t bad when you think of it like that .

This jacket is perfect for a cool evening or a cold day in Dublin.

I wore it  already with an over the shoulder gingham top and black jeans but of course forgot to take pictures.

Happy shopping,

lots of love,
