I purchased these jeans on Saturday from Vero Moda their new Noisy May range called "Lucy". I have heard alot about these jeans so I was excited to try them. The fit on these is fab and the length is perfect. I got M/L and a 30 leg. They even suck you in around the tummy it has a spank like effect, they are super soft and comfy and offer a lovely shape once on. I wore them out on Saturday night they did not move even when dancing. With some jeans I find that I have to pull them up every so often. I am defiantly going to get more they are only €34.95 

While we were on our  family Holiday in Wexford last week, I headed into Vila in Wexford Town. 
I adore Vila Clothing and I would always have a look when we used to go on weekends away to Waterford or Galway. Then Vila finally opened in  Dublin, so its all good.

Cardigans are a staple piece for any wardrobe. They are  handy for putting over tops and dresses, especially as we transition into Autumn/Winter. The print on this caught my eye and the waterfall detail, it also comes in a black and grey.         

I also purchased this black knitted dress from Vila in Wexford. It is lovely on and has a polo neckline. I went for medium and it was €26.95. I cannot find it on their site, the link here is for Asos and for some reason it is dearer. It is available in Vila, so do try it on. Again, this is a lovely transitional piece for Autumn/winter. Pair with ankle boots and tights for when the weather gets colder.        

And last but not least, this burgundy top below from Penneys. They also had it in black and I am going mad that I did not purchase. This top is just lovely on, it's flowy and the lace detail on the sleeve is so pretty and it looks very rich when on. Pair this with a gold necklace and skinny jeans. You can also add a blazer to dress it up if your going for a casual dinner, it was a real steal at €14.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Ardgillan Castle Wedding Venue Feature

Hello all, I hope you enjoyed reading my first venue feature as I am really enjoying it. I have felt so welcomed by the venues that I have visited so far.  Please feel free to share and spread the word if this feature is of interest to any engaged couples you know.

On Thursday 2nd  June I went to visit venue number two, the breathtaking Ardgillan Castle. Located between Balbriggan & Skerries. If you have ever visited here you will understand what I mean. Everytime I go to Ardgillan I literally fall in love with it all over again. Whether I go for coffee in the tea rooms, bring my daughters to the  playground or just walk around the grounds. I adore it and Ardgillan was recently featured on Lovin Dublin as the best park in Dublin to visit, now that's pretty cool.

So onto the beautiful Castle, I met with Ann-Marie and Danielle and we chatted about the venue …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder. 
Mary-Loumanizer by the Balm
Mac Soft and Gentle 

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
