Statement Jewellery With My Shining Armour

I am a big lover of statement jewellery. It can add that something extra to a casual look and finish off an outfit for going out. I have a lot of statement jewellery that I have collected over the years. I take really good care of them to ensure that they last. I am mostly drawn to statement necklaces but I also have a collection of  bracelets and earrings. Statement jewellery does not cost a fortune so you can easily build up your collection.

Some of my collection 

My next three blog posts will be dedicated to some amazing Irish companies and they just happen to sell beautiful statement jewellery.It is also really important to support Irish and local businesses.I am always browsing online, but I do have to stop myself from purchasing because I have so much already. (But there is no harm in doing some window shopping,now is there ladies)

First up is my My Shining Armour setup in April 2014 by Nicki Hoyne from Kilkenny. Other than jewellery you can also purchase stationery, makeup pouches and tech items,so there is plenty on offer. The My Shining Armour collection is beautiful, the price point is very affordable, shipping is free worldwide and if you're a magpie like myself you will be instantly drawn to these stunning pieces.

Earrings I purchased from My Shining Armour fab on  

"My Shining Armour has shipped to 22 countries, on 4 continents, featured on Irish TV shows; Xposé, IrelandAM and The Late Late Show and featured in British Vogue, Cosmopolitan UK, Grazia UK, Image Magazine, Tatler Magazine, The Sunday Times Style Magazine, The Irish Times Magazine, Social & Personal and many more Irish publications."

Below is a selection of  my favourite pieces and as always links are under each image.

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 …

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. (These posts are not sponsored) and you can also follow my blog on Facebook  |  Instagram  |Twitter | Snapchat | Pinterest

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.

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.
