Taking part in the Irish beauty bloggers secret santa was so much fun! The girl behind all the organising was Aisling of Total Makeup Addict who put in a lot of effort organising and pairing up all the irish beauty bloggers. I got the best gift ever from the lovely Chloe of Very Lovely Stuff who really spoiled me with some amazing products. I even tested out a few of them last night at a party! Continue reading
I said at the beginning that these wish lists would be a tad bizarre and I think this final one proves that. This is a collection of little bits and bobs, stocking fillers and fun things for you to use! And of course no wish list is complete without some box sets, so I’ve included two of my very favourites. Now, while it’s all well and good making these wish lists, I really need to do some actual Christmas shopping!! Have you done all yours yet?!
Following on from last weeks post (which you can find here) I’m bringing you more of the things I’ve been loving or dying to get my hands on for Christmas!! This week its more beauty and fashion focused with a few of my favourite brands featured! Have a peek and tell me what things are on your wish list for Christmas!
Just a short and sweet post today showing you two little things I picked up in AWear recently. Having moved home to a new location on Mary St (near Penneys), I decided to pop in as they were having 25% off on certain items. I don’t really shop in AWear that often but I did spot some really nice coats like this one and some nice sparkly tops like this one. Anyways I just picked up this nice faux fur scarf for €22 and a kinda sparkly eyelash cardigan for €33.75. It was reduced from €45. Its soooo soft and cosy and I really like the fact it has no buttons so you can wear a nice top underneath or just let the cardigan do the talking and team it with a statement necklace like this one!
AWear is located at 39 Mary St, Dublin 1 and nationwide.
Be prepared. This series of posts will probably be the most mixed up, weird and bizarre you’ll ever see. But I do hope you like them. For me, I never really know what I want for Christmas and to be perfectly honest there is absolutely nothing that I really need. Being healthy, alive and having really special people around me is all anyone needs. HOWEVER, I’m a girl and making little wish lists is so much fun. Every week coming up to Christmas I’m gonna do a Christmas Wish list post to keep you all inspired about gifts to buy your loved ones and friends (or even yourself!!). Now let’s get to it!!
This Mango Leather Skirt is absolutely on my wish list. In fact any leather skirt along the lines of this one or this one would make me a happy girl. There is something very sexy about leather and long legs. Perfect for Christmas nights out or styled for a casual day look.
These Roman Luxe Python drop earrings are the result of a collaboration between the amazing Karla Deras and Roman Luxe. I am in love with the whole line, designs are elegant, bold and most importantly gold. You can check out the line here but out of the complete collaboration these are my favourite.
I love love love these Vincent Camuto pumps. I’ve fitted them on and they fit like an absolute glove. They elongate your legs, the pointed toe is very sexy and it’s not too pointy if you get me. They are made of a beauty soft leather and while I thought I would hate gold on my feet.. I am now converted. These are a must have for Christmas parties and for glamming up outfits!
Now lets face it history books will not be everyone’s cup of tea as Christmas presents, but I love them. Iron Curtain is the follow-up novel to the Pulitzer Prize winning novel Gulag from Anne Applebaum. It’s tells the story of how Communism took over most of Eastern Europe after WW2. I’m really excited (for want of a better word) to read both these books. Iron Curtain just came out but in order to understand the Soviet Union’s expansion into Eastern Europe, I need to read Gulag. Both these novels are available in all good bookstores and online.
See you next week for more Christmas buys!!
