Baby Style – leggings

hi guys

So Jack is getting very mobile, he wants to be on the ground and on the go constantly. While I love little jeans, they’re not as soft or as comfy as the baby leggings. 

Next and H&M have lovely ones at the moment, but my favourites are from Cozy Cubs. 

  
I just love them! Check them out here

Happy Shopping

Aldi Plate Set

hey guys

I hope you’re all enjoying the SUMMER! It’s brilliant isn’t it? Long may it last!

This is a baby specific post so apologies to those that have absolutely ZERO interest😂

Jack is going to be 6 months old in 2 weeks time😱 I know, where has my baby gone?!

He is absolutely thriving and loving life. I’m breastfeeding, and we have decided to go down the baby led weaning route for introducing solids. So, with that in mind, I’ve been keeping my eye out for some cute kids sets, and today I found the perfect ones in Aldi!

I got Jack the hippopotamus set, it’s a bowl, plate, cup and cutlery. All made of bamboo and its dishwasher safe🙌🏼 the set is only €9.99 and there were loads of different designs available.  

 Happy shopping🙈

Elemis Pro-Radiance Delights

Hi girls 

I recently came across the Elemis Pro-Radiance range. 

I’m currently using the Cream Cleanser and the Illuminating Flash Balm, and I love both.  

 

  

The Cleanser can be applied straight on over makeup, you massage just a small amount all over your face, no water required, leave for a few minutes, and then remove with a facecloth. 

My skin feels so soft afterwards, and really clean, it’s like a mini facial!

The Flash Balm is lovely on, again just a small amount, applied to a clean face. This can be used as your daily moisturiser, a radiance booster, or even as a primer over your regular moisturiser. 

I just love the glow it gives my skin, and it’s not at all oily, which is often a big issue for me in moisturisers, but this is divine!

You can get these beauty essentials here

Until next time, happy shopping!

A day in Kildare Village

Hi lovelies 

So I paid a visit to Kildare Village last week, I love spending time there. It’s such a lovely place to spend a day, all of the stores have such beautiful pieces, and at such great prices!

I had been looking out for the perfect Baby bag, so I paid a visit to Cath Kidson. They came up trumps and I got the perfect one! I love the bright floral designs in Cath Kidson, and they have loads in store, including a very pretty homewear section, I could have stayed there all day! 

 

Lulu Guinness is another absolute favourite of mine. I want absolutely everything in the store. It’s absolute bag heaven! Someday I’m going to treat myself to the Lulu Luggage, it’s seriously to die for!!🙌

LK Bennett and Ted Baker both had stunning pieces, as per usual.👌

We had an absolutely gorgeous lunch in L’Officina, I would seriously recommend eating there! 

 

I then had a lovely long thrall through the Kate Spade store. The bags are just so elegant, I want them all! The notebooks are literally the cutest notebooks you will ever find!

  

 

So, that was my lovely day in Kildare Village. 

Have you been?

Where’s your favourite store?

My New Shoes

My new shoes deserve a post dedicated entirely to them😍

I’ve been lusting after these for a while now, so my lovely husband bought them for me as an early birthday gift😘   

I had seen them online, but really wanted to try them on, and see what they were like, and that I could walk, my balance is a little off already #PregnancyWoes 🙊

We went to the Kurt Geiger store in the Victoria Square Shopping Centre on our recent trip to Belfast, and there they were, and even prettier in person than online!

No balance problems to report after trying on the coveted pair, so money was handed over, and Claire left the shop as a very happy girl😊

I wore them last night to my friends 30th, and they were a dream to wear🙌 

 

For those of you wishing to indulge, you can get them here.

As always, happy shopping

xoxo
