Get Winter Ready With Penneys

This post is dedicated to the fabulous AW 2017 lookbook from Penneys.
I attended the press day a few months ago and I was blown away by the collection, every year it gets better and more high end looking

The overall message coming with this collection is "Everything goes, so wear what you want when you want. The rules are yours to be played with."  This is the way fashion should always be, follow your own individuality and focu on a style that suits your shape and personality.

The collection is bright, fresh, individual and bold. If you are a lover of floral prints like I am, then you are in a for a treat. Some are instore now and other  pieces are due to arrive soon. Chunky knitwear, lace sheer fabric, sequin, embellishments and faux fur also feature in the collection.

The handbags are embellished with a mixture of textures,there is bag for every outfit and occasion.The footwear collection offers some real statement shoes with satin, suede and embroidered flowers featuring heavily. Layering is key, as it always is in AW and the sheer pieces lend themselves perfectly to this.

The pink floral dress picturetd below was one my favourte dress from the press day, I love the softness and feminity of it. The good news, it is due in store from September. You will probably find me camped outside Penneys on Mary Street just waiting for it to arrive.

This year Penneys have been on point with their suit game and they do not disappoint for AW. The red suit (shown further down) will defintey get you noticed. If you're not feeling the full suit together you can always tone it down by seperating the jacket and trousers.  

This dress is everything 

This Love/ Hate bag is so fab

The collection is available in store now right through until December. 

Get the pen ready ladies and take note of what you want, I predict that this collecion will fly out just as quickly as it arrives.

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 …

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.
