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) 
‘Til next time……

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 – LancĂ´me 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

Nail varnish vanity

I’m fond of clothes & shoes & bags & accessories, let me get that our first. Make up I’m passable at. Hair: meh, it’ll do. Nails: not so much. Nails I like to have painted, but I’m not very good at it. I usually end up with most of the colour around the nail – which I then pick off when it dries. Prob not very good for the skin there, but what can you do!! Also, I work in a job where I spend most of my days opening boxes, rifling through rails of clothes, carrying things…all things that bang off my hands & nails, so if they’re painted, they chip. No discussion.

My toes I have no issue with painting, I can be messy with the paint & no one will see. So it’s all good. I love to use colours on my toes – lately been loving GOSH (miss minty) & Rimmel for their fashion colours.

When it comes to my fingers though, unless it’s for a special occasion or they’re being done by a professional – which people of the world, is not cheap in Ireland (unless someone is doing a nixer in their house) so is a rare occurrence (last time I had them done, was when my lovely friends took me to Fifth Avenue in town as part of my birthday present), I will stick to neutral, pale shades. My most recent discovery has been the brand Essie – yes yes, I know, late to the party as usual!, and they are the only brand that doesn’t chip if I have it on in work. Well, not immediately anyway. I have only just started my collection, but am a big fan of “ballet slippers” and “sand tropez” (pictured) so far.

So there you go, that’s my endorsement for the week!
