Powerscourt Waterfall

Hey Lovelies!
Hope you've been enjoying this lovely weather, we've been having! I hear this Bank Holiday is meant to be a scorcher! Yesterday I had a half day off work, so my friend Laura, and I decided to make the most of it, and venture outside Dublin. We headed up to Powerscourt. On the outskirts of Dublin it's a lovely place to spend an afternoon. I was slightly "tired" from the night previous, so it was just what I needed to clear my head. We took a little picnic, and had a good catch up. It was such a great afternoon, that we're going to get a big group together some nice afternoon and spend the day there! Ireland is so pretty, and I sometimes forget how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place!

If The Hat Fits...

Hey Lovelies, 
As you all know, I'm a hat person. I love all types of hats, bowler's, baseball caps, beanies, you name It I wear them. I think they're a great fashion accessory that's quite overlooked. A lot of people are afraid of hats, as they're unsure of which styles suit them or not, especially when it comes to fancy hats, for something special. Lucky for them, Fashion World has a fantastic new nifty feature which tells you the best hat to suit your face! Clever, huh? It's the perfect tool, for you to find something for the special occasion! 
It's really easy to do as well. A lot of the time I feel these things are gimicky, and are too complicated to figure out. I for one, don't know the first thing about "fancy hats" and truth be told, I'm always a bit baffled when I need to get one, be it for a Wedding or for the Races. I had so much fun seeing what hat, would suit my face shape, as It's something that people over look sometimes when buying hats! It's extremely easy to use and takes less than a couple of minutes! With Wedding Season, and Summer, just around the corner, there will be tons of occasions where you might have to wear a hat. 
Everyone should be aware of their face shape.  It makes things easier for when you're finding glasses, or sunglasses as if you know your face shape, you can tell what styles will suit you, and not be too small nor too big. Having a rather found face, I can get away wit larger sized glasses, with someone with a more heart shaped,face would be better suited to aviator style sunglasses.
Measuring tape, just seems to go walkabout in my house, so I just went for the easier option, and picked "Round". As you can see there is quite a selection, so you'll be able to pick one, no matter what shape your face is! After you've decided what face shape you're at, simply click next, and wait for the next question! ;)
On to another simple, self explanatory question, pick your closest eye colour! Although I so always get confused, on whether my eye colour is blue or grey. Having had a little inspection, I choose grey! If you're unsure about your eyes, I'd click the two options and see what hat you're put with!
And last before least, you choose your occasion, and you're greeted with what hat suits you best! It's a great feature, that's not only a little bit of fun, it's informative too!


I think you all should give it a go, even if it's for a little bit of fun!

Jerk in a Floral Crown

Hey Lovelies, 
As you're probably aware, the sun has been out for the past couple of days. I've been working but on Sunday evening I managed to grab a few minutes in my back garden! It was so lovely and really got me in the mood for Summer. It definitely inspired this outfit. When it's nice out I don't like being all fussy, and uncomfortable. Penney's/Primark have amazing clothes at the moment, so when I saw these two, I knew I had to have them. A faux denim skater skirt is such a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe, it can be worn all season's and goes with a lot! I know these T-shirts are everywhere, but this one was particularly  cute, and hey it's pink! it only cost me £4 last time i was in the UK, so it was a real bargain, as opposed to the gazillion Euro I spent on the Topshop "Geek" one! 
I look so happy in this picture! I bought this floral crown last week from www.boohoo.com unfortunately the second I took it out of the bag, one of the roses popped off! I glued it back in, as to be honest it's more hassle than it's worth to email back and forth and blah blah blah! I kept the outfit really simple, with just the floral crown as the main accessory. It's such an easy outfit to wear, it's simple isn't too warm and you can always layer it with cardigan or even a nice hoodie, for when the sun goes down!
Floral Crown:Boohoo, everything else Penney's/Primark 

What do you gals think of floral crown's?
