Boohoo AW16 Collection

A few weeks ago I went along to the Boohoo Christmas & AW16 press day. The collection that is coming through for Christmas & AW16 is very impressive. Further down this post, you will see a snapshot of what you can expect and I promise you will not be disappointed. 

This collection also features the much-anticipated collaboration with Jordan Woods. The collection caters for women of all shapes and sizes and it goes up to a size 24. 

"This has been an incredible opportunity to design a collection that embraces all body types," said Woods. ”There were points in my life growing up when I wanted to dress like other girls my age, but I couldn't find clothes in my size that were as cute as theirs.”

These collections feature all of the trends from street style, military, 90's, glam, sports luxe,sequin, faux fur, denim, metallics, bomber jackets, biker jackets, animal print, shift dresses, lace, cosy knits, floral embroidered detail on jeans and dresses, evening wear is all about the body-con,floor length dresses, wide leg trousers, sheer fabric and co-ords.

Colour palettes in the collections vary from rose gold, black, nude, shimmer, soft gold, blush, grey, crisp white and soft olive .

Pull your look together with sequin oversized clutch bags, killer heels and statement necklaces, you know how I adore a good statement piece and it can really make a look. Boohoo has you covered as there is something for everyone to ensure you standout for the season ahead.

You will have spotted these looks on the high-street already and you’re probably wearing elements of them. As with all trends, go with what works for you and take elements from each to suit your style.

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 …

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.
