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

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

Small Primark/ Penneys

This is very small haul as I only went in with €15.
I left my bank card at my desk so I knew I couldn’t go over my limit, its the safest way to shop.

First up is a top I’m still not 100% sure about this, I do really like this t-shirt and love the peplum netting but as you can see its cropped. Now I have not got the figure and I’m a bit old for anything cropped but my plan is to put a black top under it and have it toucked into jeans.
I’ll let you know how I get on and this t-shirt is €8.

This is a summer item which is also getting put up for when its warm, I just can’t help myself with summer clothes.
This top looks nothing in the picture, it’s an off the shoulder top now I  love this style.
It’s €7 which you can’t go wrong and I love the baby blue colour this will look amazing with with jeans.

Small Penneys/Primark Shoe Haul

Over the last week or so I have picked up some new shoes from Penneys/ Primark there all of course summer shoes.

First up are white sandals these are €11 and are very comfy, I sadly ruined them as I broke a bottle of nail polish just beside my foot and it covered them in red nail polish.  I am planning on buying another pair they also have them in black.

Again these are another pair of shoes, I brought for my holidays. I done a good bit of walking in them and they wore perfect they are €13.

Because the shoes above wore so comfortable, I picked up another pair in lepord print €13.

Sundays Outfit

Saturday was a bit of a disaster I stayed in my pjs all day as I was a little hung over after my night out on Friday night which of course I took no pictures as I have been thinking about doing a blog post on pubs and clubs in Dublin not sure if anyone would be interested in hearing about where to go in Dublin that isn’t temple bar.

So on Sunday I went out for lunch nothing to exciting but I decided to make a little bit of an afford seen that I done nothing on Saturday.

Bag aldo

shoes primark/Penneys

I have to say I really like this look I felt very summary in it and yet comfortable I am kinda thinking about trying this out with a pair of white jeans I have spotted a really nice pair in Primark \Penneys but I am not sure about white jeans I have never owned a pair 🙈 so it will be interesting to see how I get on.

Lots of love

Again I am not sure what you would call this a hand ring hand braclet I don’t know but I had to have it I know my friends are going to slag me over this but I don’t care and it’s €3.

Very Small Primark Haul

So this really is a small primark haul I was bringing stuff back and spotted two things I just had to have first up brown snake effect bag and it’s €13 this bag looks so expensive I love it.

image

 

Navy floral print culottes I am not 100% sure about these mainly because they seem to be very high waisted on me I would prefer if they wore not so high up and they are €17 but I am thinking about bringing these back maybe pick up a pair in black instead and hope they won’t be as high waisted.
