Casual Friday

Fridays are for leather jackets and oversized shirts.

Sharing a quick look I wore while visiting Malahide Castle - perfect for walking around the gardens and devouring some sweet delights! This is a prime example of my go-to casual look. If you took away all of my clothes and left me with a leather jacket, skinny jeans and a pair of boots... I'd probably be upset, but at least I'd be left with my staples! Haha.

Accessorised with this awesome statement ring, classic Rayban aviators and a quirky D&G watch I've had for years! The best thing about wearing basics is getting to accessorise.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

My Cinderella | Swatches & Makeup Look

It's no surprise that the Disney obsessed child in me had to get it's hands on the new Cinderella Collection from MAC. I honestly can't express how embarrassingly excited I was when I heard it was being released - Sleeping Beauty is my numero uno but Cinderella does rank among my favourite Disney princesses, so getting to look kinda like her is an obvious bonus. haha. 

Anyway, as the collection had released a little later in Ireland than in the rest of the world I'd heard and watched a lot of reviews of the collection before I was physically able to purchase it, so I had a good idea of what I needed to have and what wasn't so necessary. Tons of people weren't too impressed with it saying that a lot of what they had included in the collection was a tad too similar to previously existing MAC products but let's face it, I'm a Disney-fanatic so the packaging and the names of the products alone were enough to drag me in. Haha. Here's a little look at what I picked up!...

- Cinderella Glitter 'Reflects Pearl' (€25)

- Cinderella Iridescent Pressed Powder 'Coupe D'Chic' (€30)

- Cinderella Lipstick 'Free As A Butterfly' (€21.50)

- Cinderella Lipstick 'Royal Ball' (€21.50)

Firstly the packaging is the most beautiful shade of sky blue - slightly pearlescent, super sleek and very 'Disney'. Obviously they were going for something that would scream Cinderella and what better than the colour of the infamous ball gown! Everything is trimmed in gold - super luxe. Some part of me wishes they had included a little illustration of Cinderella and then another part yells, no too much - haha. So I think they kinda hit the nail on the head.

Cinderella Lipsticks 'Royal Ball' (R) & 'Free As A Butterfly' (L)
Both gorgeous neutral shades in a 'lustre' finish, which is one of my personal favourites. Royal Ball is more on the pink side and Free As A Butterfly is more champagne. Absolutely stunning on - perfect for S/S.

'Coup D'Chic' Cinderella Iridescent Pressed Powder 
STUN-NING! While it does need to be built up a little, once you've got it - wow. I actually had several people complement my highlight the day I wore this, always a plus! It gives of an almost rose gold hue which is super pretty. Love this one.

Cinderella Glitter 'Reflects Pearl'
A super fine white silver glitter. I can never have enough of these little pots of glittery goodness from MAC - they last forever too!

And here's the makeup look... 

When I think Cinderella, I think girly and demure and I wanted to translate that into a makeup look. Thankfully I'd skipped tan the day my bits and pieces arrived, so I went for porcelain skin, a very simple eye (slightly contoured with MAC's 'Cork' Shadow) defined with a feline flick, fluttery lashes, a soft blush (when you apply the iridescent powder it almost acts as a 2 in 1 - blush and highlight) and a pinky nude lip ('Royal Ball').

Did any of you pick up anything from the Cinderella collection?

Green Girl

Hey Guys!

Throwin' a little top-dress (?) action your direction today! Picked up this little number in River Island last week and had fun figuring out how to style it. I think it's gonna look amazing with some tailored shorts & some sandals in the Summer, but as the weather's just not there yet I opted for jeans. Belted it with this super cool beaded belt I picked up in a boutique at home about 3 years ago - a little Chanel-eque no?

These boots are a current favourite of mine - I'm in love with the snakeskin wrap detailing around the ankle. They're super different from anything else that I have. Pulled the look together with a little biker jacket and a heavily embellished clutch.

I'll leave details of everything below!

How would you style this contraption? Haha.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Hi Guys!

Just sharing a quick look from last weekend! I wore this striped shift dress from Zara out to dinner on Friday evening. It's such an easy dress to wear, there's no thinking with it at all - throw it on with your favourite sandals and accessorise 'til your hearts content! I've been styling this dress in a super casual way recently, pairing it with some quirky ballet flats for a more daytime wearable look, so it was nice to go for something a little more dressy! It's definitely one of those pieces that can take you from day to night! Can you tell I was making the most of a little jump in the temperature? Haha.

I'm also a little obsessed with statement necklaces at the minute. I picked this one up in a boutique in town earlier in the week and it's not had much down time since.

I'll leave details of the outfit below if you'd like to know where anything's from!
Hope you're all having a great week!

Date Night • Soft Glam

Hey Guys! 

Just wanted to share a quick makeup look from last weekend. We decided to treat ourselves and headed off to the Eastern Seaboard Bar & Grill in Drogheda for date night (p.s. it's fab!). I felt a little inspired by the weather on Friday (it was ahhh-mazing - the sun was shining and Spring was finally in the air) so I decided to amp up the glam a little and went for something different to my usual - think soft and glowing yet glam!

I played down the eyes using a subtle wash of gold across the lid and a little liner for definition - this look is much more about fluttery lashes and a soft peachy pout (a shade I rarely wear)!

Do you ever feel inspired by the weather to freshen your makeup look up?!
What's your go-to look for date night?

Day Time Glam

Don't you just love when you get to take your time doing your makeup?

I don't know if it's something to do with me chopping my hair (check out my Insta or FB for better snaps) or not but I've been getting super sick of my makeup routine lately - it's too samey samey for my liking but when you need to get things done it does the job. Haha. So, in order to get me out of my rut I decided to strap myself to my makeup chair (slight exaggeration, it doesn't take much persuasion when I have the time. Haha.) and forced myself to do something a little different.

I had no plan or any form of inspiration when I started out but I found myself reaching for a LOT of products that I was completely obsessed with last Summer (I'm living for the warmer weather, so maybe that's why). At the minute I'm really feeling a fresh makeup look, especially softer eyes - yes, I'm still in my 'say no to liner' phase - so I opted for fluttery lashes and smoked out shadows with warm undertones. Last Summer I also went through a phase of wearing lashes every day... I can feel the obsession returning. Haha.

Sometimes I feel like steering clear of dark liners really opens up my eyes - honestly, I've been getting weirdly paranoid about wearing gel liner recently. Haha. But in saying that, I do still love a good smokey eye!

Is this something you would wear during the day?
What's your go-to everyday makeup look?

Also, I was thinking of filming a tutorial of how I'm styling my hair at the minute! Let me know if this is something you'd like to see. :)
