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

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,

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.

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

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

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.
