Penneys perfection

So I nipped over to the new Penneys store in Liffey Valley earlier today – forgetting it was Sunday and there would be people there…  But it is amazing!! Huge stock levels (second only to Mary St, and I always feel over whelmed in that store;never know where to start!) and loads of floor staff to help with any queries you have! 
I picked up these two shirts for work (€9 each!), and am only delira with them! They’ve a lovely cotton softness to them and are a good fit (longish on the body & sleeves, and no real gaping at the buttons!). 

( I was taking a picture of the print, and Cpt Needy Pants wanted to be involved too) 

Khaki, stars, blue and polka dots! Perfection!! 

Also! Penneys have started (or maybe I never knew they did them already) doing a range of bras for D-F cups. I bought 3. All are a perfect fit, super comfy and are €6/€8 each!!  
Thanks Hun, Penneys!! 
‘Til next time……

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!!

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.

Today’s outfit 05/07/2015

Today I am having my lunch in my parents house, and after getting absolutely soaked on the beach while walking the dog, I was so happy that I had brought some pretty (&dry) clothes to put on. 

  

My ensemble consisted of this fab cloud print dress from Cath Kidston, which I bought ages ago but hadn’t gotten around to wearing, a bright yellow cardigan from Oasis, and flower print plimsoles from Penneys/Primark. This gorgeous outfit was my revolution against the deluge of rain & thunder that had settled on North Dublin yesterday.

Today’s outfit 23/05/2015

Sliiiiiightly delayed, but sure, here we are now!

Himself’s brother turned 30 over the weekend, so there was a big party in one of the local pubs for it, so a glammed up outfit was required!! 
  

Not the best picture, but the mirror is too close to my bed, and we fairly had to wedge it onto the nails so there was no chance of my taking it down for a better angle! 

White blazer – with black lapels, is from AWear, purple shift dress from New Look, black heels from Penneys, with a black & white clutch from Onyx in Blackrock Shopping Centre.  

For my hair I went for a slightly curly blow dry with lots of volume in the roots (my local salon Zinc Hair & Beauty did it perfectly!) so it stayed in shape all night.  

My make up consisted of a smokey brown eye, strong brows, (hopefully) dewy skin & a pale lip. 
Base: Mac – prep + prime “skin refined treatment soin”, Stila ” one step correct” & “stay all day” foundation & concealer, & Natural Collection pressed powder 

Cheeks: Nars blusher in “orgasm”, no7 blusher in “coral flush”, Bobbi Brown shimmer brick compact in “rose” & La Perla bronzer. 

Eyes & brows: Stila ‘in the know’ shadow palette – used wind, desert, clay & rain, Nars duo in “cordura”, Rimmel wonder’ful mascara (waterproof, black), Benefit ‘show offs!’ in “candi”, & Rimmel eyebrow pencil in “hazel” 

Lips – Lancôme juicy tube (not sure which colour, but it’s a pale shimmery pink)

Today’s outfit (03/05/2015)

For himself’s birthday I took him to Carton House as part of his present, we aren’t going to get away this year – money pit of a house will do that, but totally worth it!, so I wanted to give him (& us) a wee treat. 

For his birthday dinner I wore this gorgeous blue print dress from U Fashion, I’d bought it before Christmas and couldn’t close it, so it was my goal to fit into it! Yay me! My nude high heel pumps are from Penneys, and my jewellery is a mixture of vintage and gifts. 

 
I also gave some new make up a go: foundation & ‘one step’ primer from Stila, and this Rimmel mascara which is amazing! One coat of the mascara is perfect for daytime, but for evening I like a bit more drama so two coats was perfect! The brush is perfect for getting right into the base of the lashes
