BestSeller AW Fashion Festival

On thursday I had the pleasure of going to the Bestseller AW15 Fashion Festival Press preview. The festival was held in the Chocolate Factory located on Kings Inn Street,Dublin. I had never been there before and it is such a cool venue. There is an industrial/raw feel to it and it's so intimate, I loved it.

 Daniella Moyles hosted the event and she looked absolutely stunning. She wore a beautiful dress from the new Lily-Allen collection for Vero Moda.

On the night we were treated to a preview of the clothing that will soon be in these shops. 

People could also get their illustration drawn by Conor Merriman, there was a nail bar, musical performances and we also received a fab goodie bag. I need to mention the music because no fashion show is complete without some tunes and it was on point!!

Also dotted around the venue where clothing rails from the various brands. They displayed new and current stock. It felt like a small fashion village, a lovely touch and visually it looked great.

The clothing shown was gorgeous and I wanted almost everything I saw (not good for the purse). The overall collection is casual,cosy, glam, sassy, elegant, sexy and flirty. Featuring suede, fringing, leather,denim,knit,faux fur. There are loads of transitional pieces to carry you through. For the Men, the clothing coming is preppy, smart, casual with added street style and plenty of denim.

What I love about these brands is that they are affordable but the quality and finish is high end. I have shopped in Vero Moda and Vila for years they are definitely my go to shops.

Happy Shopping

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 …

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 …
