Spring Wish List

Spring
Top:New Look,Perfume:Marc Jacobs "Daisy", Crop Top:New Look, Jumper:New Look, Shorts:River Island, Bag:New Look, Necklace:River Island, Lip Balm:Cath Kidston, Maxi dress:Fran ans Jane, Floral Crown:Etsy, Heart print skirt:River Island, Pumps:Topshop.
 
With Spring fast approaching, and with the slightly longer nights,I'm getting in the mood for spring. I'm ditching my black and opting for more pastel tones. At the moment I'm loving pink and mint green. There's something so fresh and girly about both of them, that makes me want to wear it everyday! I know for sure I will be buying a few floral crowns, I think there's something so whimsical about them and fun! I would wear one everyday if i could! I wanted to inject a bit more sunshine into this blog, so thought I'd come up with my favourite bits and bobs from a selection of my favourite stores.

I can't wait for it to get warmer, who knows I might be brave and tan my tummy and rock a crop top/high waisted skirt combo? We'll see.. ;) I love this one it's fun, girly and would be perfect on holiday's! I saw this pretty skirt last night while popping around the shops after work, and I love it. It's a cute little inexpensive skirt that would look just as cute with a bare leg, or with tights. A perfect transition piece for your wardrobe. I'm thinking a little bit ahead but when I saw this beautiful maxi dress in Fran and Jane, my jaw nearly hit the floor. It's a gorgeous mint green, is an extremely flattering cut and can be dressed up for a special occasion like a ball, or worn slightly more casual on your summer holidays! If you're not a huge fan of pastel colours but still want to keep up to date, the best way to do it is with accessories, you can never  go wrong with a statement necklace or statement earrings or even a cute bag! Primark/Penney's/New Look and River Island would be my go to places. 

What are you guys looking forward to wearing this Spring/Summer?

Gift Idea's For Everyone :)

I've decided to put together a few Christmas Idea's for y'all. As a fashion lover, beauty junkie and a girly girl all rolled into one, I decided to compile a few idea's for you. There's nothing I love more than giving gifts, especially ones I know the person will love! As Christmas can be expensive all of these gifts are under €40! With most of them being under €25! So you're guaranteed to make someone very happy, without breaking the bank :)
Fashion
 For all those Fashion Lovers out there!
For the ultimate fashion lover, I discovered this Vogue Portrait on Esty, It's a fashion lover's dream, and I can pretty much guarantee it would be hung up immediately in their bedroom! These Suspender tights, from "Pretty Polly" are a cool and quirky, and these ones are One Size, fitting most girls, eliminating the dilemma of what size to get.  Jewellery, as anyone worth their salt knows can transform an outfit. River Island, Asos and Topshop all have quirky up to date pieces that are pocket friendly, and make excellent gifts! Style Guides are always greatly appreciated, from Gok Wan to our own Lisa Fitzpatrick you'll find a book to suit your fashionista! Skull's are still very much in trend, with no signs of dying out just yet, this clutch from Boohoo.com channels Alexander McQueen, It comes in both black and this gorgeous Silvery colour, which is perfect for the festive season, and looks a lot more expensive that it actually is! I've seen ones retailing in stores for much more. 
Stocking Fillers 
Cute little stocking fillers for the girliest of all girls <3
 For girly girls, anything pink or floral (or both!) are the perfect gift! Yankee Candles are not only affordable but smell divine, you can get any scent you can imagine. You can never get enough pairs of gloves, especially if you live in Ireland or the UK. With the weather plummeting you need to stay wrapped up. These gorgeous knitted ones from Accessorize would be an ideal gift! Girly Heaven is located within the walls of Cath Kidston, where you can buy gorgeous mugs, lip balms, makeup bags,hand creams in an array of gorgeous floral girly colours. For all you Irish folk, hot foot it to Avoca, where you can buy gorgeous girly gifts. You can pick up lovely soaps, cute aprons and girly kitchen wear- perfect for mammy! I don't know about you but I'm a cold creature and am freezing all the time, so this cute hot water bottle would be a very welcomed gift to any girl who is freezing all day, every day. Not to mention it's fricken adorable! *hoot hoot* Again Channeling Alexander McQueen this gorgeous Scarf from River Island is cute and girly, yet incorporating the skull motif. It's a great length and the colour is fab, as not only can you wear it now, you can wear it coming into Spring/Summer.
Beauty
For all those Beauty Junkies out there!
Okay, so if you're friend/sister/mother/grandmother is in to beauty, you better believe they'll have quite a stash of makeup/beauty products. These cute little idea's might be something a little bit different to what they'd normally buy for themselves. The 120 eyeshadow pallet which has been highly talked about, the staying power and the pigmentation are supposed to be amazing for the price (approx €19.99 on Ebay) You get every colour under the sun, in both matt and shimmer, making it a great gift for any beauty lover! You can never have enough makeup brushes, and for me personally they feel like a bit of a splurge. My personal favourite are Real Techniques which you can pick up for as cheap as chips in all Boots Pharmacy's. Lush Cosmetic's are probably the best Christmas present's for beauty junkies! Everything smells divine, they have ready made gift sets and you can spend as little or a much as you like. Smaller gift sets retail from around €13 so you can pick up something within your budget :)

Men's list
For the men in your life <3
Men are always quite difficult to buy for. Be it you Dad, Boyfriend, brother or Friend. You really can't go too wrong with aftershave, original no, but lets face it, they most likely need it ;) The likes of Topshop have lovely zippy hoodies and rucksacks all for a reasonable price, as well as now doing mens shower sets! With River Island having cute Christmas Jumpers! Primark(Penney's) have great Christmas jumpers too, as well as novelty socks which are great stocking fillers! Headphones are always a good buy too, you can get decent ones in HMV, and aren't are pricy as you'd imagine! :) For a funny gift, perhaps a Kris Kindle these funny Moustache's will give you all a good giggle! You can get them for about a tenner in Urban Outfitters! Hat's and glove's are also good present's, again not original, but with this weather being bitterly cold, again it will be welcomed, and used!

Topshop: Shopping for a curvy girl

Topshop: Shopping for a curvy girl
Everything Topshop!
 
Hey Beauties!

Sorry it's been a couple of days, I've been a busy little bee. but you'll have an Outfit tomorrow, I'll make sure of it! I often shop at TopshopNow sometimes I go in and find NOTHING to suit my shape or fit over my boobs or tummy! I'm not going to lie, sometimes you do get disheartened, but I've learnt some tips along the way and I'd be more than happy to share them with you gorgeous girls.
  • OK, I'm pretty sure you're all sick of me saying this but you have to try everything on. Most of my clothing from Topshop are size 14's as the 16's fly out in their flagship store in Dublin. 
  • Jersey is your friend. I love jersey, it's really comfortable and stretches nicely to fit your shape, and I find it very flatter to my curves.
  • Step out of your comfort zone. I recently wore the deep V mesh dress, and I got so many compliments wearing it. I never thought it would look anyway decent on or if I'd even have the guts to wear it, but when I tried it on I instantly fell in love! If I hadn't bothered trying it on, I would of seriously missed out!
  • Wear their shirts open. I have this problem all the time. While shirts could fit my tummy, my bust would pop out, which isn't a good look. So I wear them open with a tunic and leggings, for a casual day time look. 
  • Always looks out for over sized bits, it's still a big trend, and it works extremely well for bigger girls.
  • Their Footware is always spot on, and a rather wide fitting! If I am to buy one thing from Topshop this Winter is a pair of boots. Last year I missed out on the Oh-So famous "Ambush" boots and this year I will not happen again. I will buy them next month if I have to! 
  • I got a pale pink sequins dress the same as the silver one above, it's an empire cut with jersey on the lining giving it a little more stretch and an open back. It's still got plenty of room on me in a size 16!
  • Which leads me to my next point. Ignore tags, and go with the cut and fabric. A-line/Empire Line are your friends as are mesh, knit and jersey :)
  • Crop top jumpers are great if you're like me and have a tummy. I plan on wearing the pink one above with a high waisted skirt and boots when it get's cold(er)!
  • The have the most amazing comfy jumpers. I have a lilac one which I got in a size 14 and it's roomy on me!, they're brillant for lounging around, going for walks or just chilling in general. I chose to showcase the black one above, which I plan on wearing with those cross print leggings and a tunic with my converse. I need to get paid pronto! 
  • Aztec print it still very big, and is lovely in knit twear. I choose this cardi because it's open and a big fit. I also love it as it's brightly coloured to make those cold, rainy wintery days a little more fun ;)

Hope you get inspired by some of these tips and if you guys have any tips for me, please let me know! :)
