Wedded Wednesday – Clutch On

Hi ladies

I hope you are all having a fabulous week, and are looking forward to this bumper Bank Holiday weekend!

Today it’s all about the Wedding Clutch.
You may not have thought about it yet, or you may think that you don’t need one, but trust me, you do!

What are you going to do with your lippy? And finishing powder? Someone else will be holding it for you-probably your bridesmaid, but just think how handy it will be to just grab your own lippy if and when you need it, particularly as the night wears on!

With that in mind, here are my favourites at the moment…

Pippa’s Fashion Factory

Well where do I start! Pippa’s Fashion Factory was ah-mazing!

From start to finish we were treated like stars.
We arrived in Castlemartyr on Saturday at 10 to register where we got our gorgeous goodie bags, which included Blank Canvas brushes, some excellent discount codes, toiletries and even a cream egg😂 We were then treated to tea, coffee and delicious pastries.
We went into the main room at 11, it was beautifully decorated, and had very cool centre pieces.

We started off with a makeup run though by the lovely Orla from Blank Canvas, who gave us loads of tips and tricks from eye makeup to concealers and foundations, I want them all!!
After Orla, Pippa went through all her favourite products. The list is as long as my arm, but I was delighted to see her recommending Glam Glow. I am a huge fan (there’s a separate blog post on my Glam Glow love on the way🙊)
We then had a break for divine afternoon tea, and my favourite, bellinis! It was all delicious!

After the break we had a fashion show, with lots of gorgeous trends from River Island, Warehouse and Coast. The models were just stunning and I pretty much wanted everything!
We then had fab hair demos, where I developed another long list of must haves! Pippa rounded it off by going through her wardrobe essentials which included the gorgeous Amelie jeans from River Island, which I blogged about here.

There were plenty of opportunities for questions, and Pippa met everyone afterwards, she was absolutely lovely, and chatted and took photos with us all!

There were pop up stands setup by Stella & Dot, Blank Canvas and Cloud 10 Beauty both at the break and afterwards.

Ooh and I almost forgot…there was a Häagen Dazs stand, with free ice cream!!

Pippa wore a gorgeous dress and shoes from Zara.

I wore Black Molly Jeans and Peplum top, both from River Island, Pink Coat and Chain from H&M, Floral Bag from Ted Baker and my much adored Nude shoes from LK Bennett.

Spring Wedding

There is a most definite Spring feeling in the air today!
The weather is just fab, and it’s Friday, so it’s a double win.
With Spring weddings just around the corner, it’s time to start planning outfits. There are some stunning pieces out there at the moment, so I’ve put together 3 gorgeous outfits.

Let me know if you love them in the comments!

40 Days Without Shopping – Day 20

So yesterday I had a slip up. Not just a small slip up, a massive one! 😭
I was in Manchester with the girls on a hen party, and the shopping was just too good. Now I didn’t buy anything too frivolous, just some essentials (MAC and River Island😂) However, I have picked myself up, dusted myself off, and am back on the No Shopping road.
I am disappointed, but it just goes to show that we are all human (and that I’m seriously addicted to shopping!!).
The girls are trying to console me with the fact that it was a Sunday, and apparently Sunday’s don’t count??! I’m not so sure about that!!
Wish me luck for the rest of my sentence…20 more days.

Until next time!

God Bless ASOS

Have you ever heard the term ‘God Bless ASOS’?
Now it could be just that we Irish are forever blessing everything (or at least it seems that way!), or it could be the fact that no matter what outfit you need, ASOS will have it. Whether it’s a swanky new dress for the races, a new work wardrobe or even just casual wear, ASOS has it, and lots of it. There are no restrictions on choice whatsoever, and I love it. It’s also a great place to get shoes, bags and accessories, you name it, they have it.
I particularly like their workwear, and the fact that you can filter by workwear (nobody has time to trawl through 20 pages for the perfect work blazer).

So, have you said God Bless ASOS recently?

You can shop ’til you drop at ASOS.com

As the song says.. These are a few of my favourite things..

Michael Kors..the brand is just phenomenal, everyone is raving about it. I too am a huge fan, and this Jet Set Multifunction Phone Case has taken my eye in a big way this year.

Last but not least, we have a very reliable product – the Urban Decay Naked Palette. There are a few different Palettes to choose from, but they are all fab. This one is my favourite. Its €39.60, and you can Buy Here
