Outfit of the day 25/12/15

Yes it’s a little late but I’ve been too busy, eeeehhhh, eating….. And working! Yes!! I’ve been working too! Ah the joys of the service industry!! 

  
Black courts (not really seen) are from Penneys / Primark, tulle skirt is from Cari’s Closet (sale for €20!!), black cardi is from Oasis, beads are Chanel, watch is DKNY, and ring is antique.

Christmas Day was its usual whirlwind of visiting and jamming as much into it as possible, before being able to take off the nice clothes & put on your jammies because (in the words of Regina George) “this is all that fits me right now”. 

Proof!!

Outfit of the day 25/10/15

My nephew was being christened, so that called for glamming up!!!

Grey short sleeve jumper (with black sequins on the shoulder) is from F&F (Tesco), midnight blue midi skirt from UFashion, black pointed toe heels from Penneys, white & black clutch from Onyx in Blackrock. 

 
Accessories consisted of gold drop earrings & bracelet from Stonechat in the Westbury Mall, and rose gold watch from DKNY.

New beginnings

I’m starting a new job next month, so will have to reasses my work wardrobe – currently trackie bottoms & hoodies/jeans & a tee – advantage of working in a sports shop, to something a bit more professional looking!! I have begun my attempt of grown of dressing with these beauties from Clarks; 

  
Yes, they’re pewter. So still managing to be my weird & preppy self!! My sister bought a pair of petrol green (or was it emerald? Either way, a lovely dark green!) a year or so ago & I was fairly resistant to them-reminiscent of school shoes, calling her a hipster etc. But jokes on me, I’ve been thinking about them since!! Curses!! So there we go, my new smart shoes for my new smart job!! 

Wish me luck!!

Outfit of the day 20/09/2015

Today I was on a quick fire round trip to London to meet my new nephew (& hopefully get a cuddle with his older brother & my sister in at the same time!) so comfy was high on priority list!!

   

(Excuse the airport bathroom mirror selfie, didn’t think himself would appreciate the light being put on at 5am for a mirror selfie!)

 
Blanket cape is from Oasis (Spring 2015 – but they’ve very similar ones in at the moment!), checked shirt is men’s from Tommy Hilfiger – love a mans shirt as they’re so much longer & better across the shoulders (& bust), long tanks (grey & dark purple) are both from Jack Wills, dark indigo jeans are from Levis Curve, ankle boots are from New Look, orange bag is Longchamp & my watch is DKNY.

  
And these are the amazing products that made me look human at 5am & stayed put until I got home at 1am -after a delayed flight! (The 17 blusher is actually one I use for eyeshadow as it doesn’t suit on my cheeks)

Today’s outfit (06/09/2015) 

Yesterday I was at Electric Picnic, so today being slightly zombie like after the 21 hour day (which wasn’t all that unusual when I worked at these gigs) that it was meant all I wanted was snuggly cuddly clothes.  

 
The cardi is from Fran&Jane, long sleeved tee is from Jack Wills, jeans are Levi’s Curve, and boots are New Look. 
Yesterday’s outfit consisted of wellies, jeans, comfy tee, hoody & jacket. No pic as I was in work all day before and, well, there was nothing exciting about it!! But I was so comfy, and warm as the temp dropped.

Today’s outfit (09/08/2015)

Was meeting the girls for manis, lunch & catch ups today so I knew I could go quite comfy, but since my work clothes consist mainly of stretchy gym gear I wanted to wear something a bit nicer.  

 
Outfit is: navy cardigan from Oasis (with odd buttons as there weren’t enough replacements after my lunatic dog chewed them off!! So a pink one was put on the collar instead), anchor print tee & grey tank are from H&M, dark green stretch skinnies are from Next – they’re not quite skinny enough at the ankle but didn’t have time to search the shops!, ankle boots are from New Look, lime green bag is from  Zatchels, and my watch is DKNY. 

Got my nails done in 5th Avenue Nails on Wicklow Street – girls there are really nice & they do a fab job. The colour is by Essie, but I don’t know what it’s called (looks like a greeny – white in the bottle) – excuse the sausage fingers please!!

Today’s outfit (03/08/2015) 

Being a bank holiday (& sorta sunny) I felt like getting the legs out. Mainly because I wanted to wear this skirt is bought in the sales (€12!!). Any excuse huh?!? 

  
Denim shirt is from Penneys/Primark, navy string strap tank is from h&m (as are the gold gladiator sandals), striped stretch pencil skirt is from Next & the rose gold watch was a houseiversary present from himself to celebrate one year since we got the keys to our house! 

Also, to give this a bit of oomph I used a bright pink lippy – Kate Moss for Rimmel, number 20.

TréSemme trials 

I was lucky enough to be chosen for a trial period of TréSemme products via U Magazine recently. As I have fairly fine (but lots of it – as hairdressers love to tell me!!) hair that I can’t get a lot of volume myself with, they sent me the (giant!!) 24 hour body shampoo & conditioner.  

 
Normally if I left my hair to dry naturally it wouldn’t feel smooth, and would generally be a bit fluffy rather than wavy/curly. After using this my hair was much softer, and the fluff was minimised (so the conditioner is amazing!!) but overall my hair had much more ‘lift’ to it. And when I used the dryer – I’m a lazy user of the hair dryer; I just brush it upside down & away from its usual parting to try to give it a bit of oomph, it was still super soft, & had a good bit of lift!!

As I have that type of hair that needs to be washed every day (or stretched to every second day with some dry shampoo!) I tend to stay away from a lot of brands because the shampoo is creamy, but this was a gel shampoo, rinsed out easily and smelled lovely! (A nice clean smell, not an over powering perfume that some can have). And, the need for dry shampoo wasn’t as intense as it could be!!

I do want to give it a go with the proper night out hair do – rollers & hella back combing,  so I’ll update when I get around to doing that! 
But all in all, very pleased with the results & would deffo recommend it!! So go buy it!! NOOWWWWW!!!
