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

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

Simple lose fitting black top its €5 but it iron’s terrible you need to put a pillow case over it or it just burns.

Life Update

I really need to push myself to do this weekly, as I just keep forgetting about it.

I can’t believe its August already and summer is nearly over, I have to admit I prefer winter. I know but Irish summers are so strange one minute it’s to warm, cold, raining, dry, hot again you don’t know what to be wearing lol.

Let’s start with my nails, I got this nail polish yonks ago but love this bright colour its Rimmel London 105 you had me at hello, I even love the name.

Products I have picked up and plan on reviewing which I never seem to do but will soon, I am going to try and be more organised with blogging and life.

NYX Epic black mousse Liner

PS LOVE this Foundation Brush

On Saturday I got my hair done and I have been so good my hair hasn’t been near a GHD in about 2 months now, I did get a curly blow dry from my hair dressers but once a month is ok.
Also loving snapchat filters.

IMG_5856[1]

I also went to my favourite steak place FX Buckley in Temple bar it was so good and I even had a glass of red wine, I’m not a red wine fan but it was nice but just one glass is enough.

This month I plan on being more organised so I am starting a bullet Journal so any tips to help me be more organised, please let me know.

Lots of Love

New Look Dress

I spotted this dress the day before I went on holidays,  prayed they had my size left which thankfully they did. As it is a button up dress I was worried about it gapping at the front because of my chest, so I also tried on the size 16 but the 14 fitted me perfect.

Sadly I never got to wear this dress on holidays as it was so cold at night I stuck to trousers and still haven’t worn it yet but I will.

I love that this dress is midi which is my favourite length, the off the shoulder look which I love at the moment and its priced at €29.99 and it looks alot more expensive.

click here to buy

As you can see the model is wearing runners, I would wear it with sandals or wedges and add woven bag i picked up in Pennys to finish it of.
