Outfit of The Wedding!

As some of you may know, I was in Glasgow for five days celebrating the Wedding of the Century. My Cousin Jack was marrying his gorgeous Scottish Girlfriend Siobhan. They've been together for absolute years and I couldn't be happier for them. I was secretly delighted they decided to have the Wedding in Scotland, as it got me a little break from work, and a little holiday! I took the Thursday-Monday off, and it was a lovely couple of days, however it wasn't too relaxing ;) I arrived after my parents, and grand-parents on the Thursday morning, and spent the day chilling, and then I got my Tan and Nails done before heading to bed, and getting ready for the next few days. Friday night was spent in the Hotel getting copious amounts of drinks and having a slap up meal. We stayed in the Crutherland Hotel in East Kilbride and everything from the Staff to the Food and even the Spa were top notch.
 The Wedding was held in the Crutherland Hotel, and it was absolutely marvellous. It was definitely the Wedding of the year!  I wore and Asos tu-tu dress, that I've had since last year. It was perfect for the occasion, and I'm delighted I got the chance to wear it again.As it was late October I wanted my outfit to be really Autumnal, for my Cousin's wedding in the Summer I went really summery and girly but this time I wanted to be more Autumnal. I had this dress from last year, that I wore once, and forgot about. After many attempts and failures to find a suitable dress, I dug this out of my wardrobe and it was the nicest out of all the dresses I'd bought for the Wedding, so I sent them back, and just focused on getting the accessories! The dress is really poofy, and quite noticeable so I didn't want to go too over board with the accessories! I'd looked in quite a few places, and nothing really tickled my fancy, and nothing in my opinion suited the dress. I of course left things to the last minute and ended up running around on my lunch break the day beforelooking for something that worked well with my outfit! 
I looked in Zara. Accessorize, House of Fraser, Topshop, A|Wear and River Island and I couldn't find anything I liked, so I gave up and hoped I'd find something in Glasgow on the Friday when I got over and went back to work. Penney's open later than all the other shops in Dundrum, so after work I went in, not really expecting to find anything. I find not only a statement necklace, but also a furry jacket both came to under €35! Absolutely bargain. So I left a very happy bunny and could finally relax and get excited for the Wedding. Now I did leave one thing to the last minute, my shoes. I took a pair of wedges not really thinking, but when I had a little think, they were a bit too casual for the dress. I nipped into New Look in Glasgow and picked up these babies for £20! I reused a handbag I bought three years ago in River Island that again I've only worn a few times, and my outfit was finally put together. My Mum also came to the rescue and came into me with the headpiece, that was gorgeous! It was very similar to the one I wore to the other wedding, and matched the outfit perfectly!
Dress:Asos, Necklace and Jacket:Penneys/Primark, Bag:River Island and Hat:Mum's

I had a fantastic weekend, and wish Jack and Siobhan a life time of happiness together! Welcome to the Family Siobhan :) <3

Human+Kind Body Oil Review

Another day, another Body Oil. I also got this gem in my goody bag, from the Bloggers evening, and have been using it non-stop for the past two weeks. It's my cousin's wedding this weekend, and I started the pampering session a little bit early. I'm a lover of Body Oils. I love how smooth they make my skin, and how luxurious they are. My skin always feels as soft as a baby's bum after using them, so I'm always intrigued when I get a chance to try out a new one. Again with this Winter malark, but the weather has serious changed, and it's officially Coat weather and before you know it, we'll all be complaining about snow! I also moisturise in the Summer, but I'll be the first to admit it, during the Winter months, where my legs aren't on show I do neglect to moisturise, so a body oil is a perfect when I want to give my skin some TLC.

 Now I'm not going to lie, my bathroom is filled to the brim with all these lotions and potions, and I've got too much choice in terms of keeping my body soft and subtle! Human+Kind "All in One Body Oil" comes beautifully packaged, and definitely stands out to me. Human+Kind  is a "Down to earth company built around supporting people with their skin concerns in an ethical way" So on top of a gorgeous product, Human+Kind are an ethical company, which makes using them, all the more enjoyable, and of course with them being an Irish company, I'm all for supporting them! All their products are "Dermatologically tested, Hyper-allergenic and suitable for Sensitive Skins" So far so good! Their Body Oil is made from a formula of all natural ingredients that rejuvenates and restores your skin. This Body Oil is a Multi purpose all over body oil, it contains no harmful chemicals and they're so convinced you'll like this product, the offer you your money back, if you're not satisfied. A win-win situations. 

You can use this all over your body, as well as your hair to keep the ends conditioned. Since having Balayage, I was so conscious of the ends of my hair, and tried over and over again to keep them in good condition, however because the blonde pretty much destroyed my hair, I'm back to being Brunette and trying to look after my hair, and restore it back to it's previous condition. I only use a little bit, and apply to the ends of my hair when it's wet, and my hair is really soft, and is left smelling amazing! The first thing you notice is the scent. It's not overpowering, but it's a lovely soft floral scent, that makes you want to use it over, and over again. Now the bottle is smaller than the packaging, and I wasn't sure if I would use it up quickly or not. I've used this a good number of times now, and I'm not even half way through the bottle. Over all this is as a fantastic products, and at less than €15, I'd definitely consider picking this up again!

Back to Black

Many moons ago, before I started this blog, I use to live in black. A lot of people assumed it was because I wasn't as comfortable with myself, as I am now, and there might be a little element of truth to that, but honestly 90% of it was that I just LOVE black. It's the effortlessly chic, it can be brightened up with a bright scarf, bright lip and accessories. I think black especially amongst plus size women gets a bad reputation. Now don't get me wrong, there's a lot I don't like about black in certain styles, and cuts but if you're ever having a bad day, where nothing looks anyway decent on you Black will be your saviour!

Black comes in so many different forms. I love Black leather, Black Faux Fur and Black Sequins! It's all about texture for me! I love rocking a Leather skater skirt, and sheer shirt with a blazer. To finished off the look, I'll add a statement necklace and a strong, bold lip and will be ready to rock and roll! Another easy outfit would be a pretty skater dress, throw on a Faux Fur Gilet over it, and rock a trilby hat for a chic Autumn look! I love Floral crowns, and won't let the fact that it's Winter stop me from wearing them! I love the ones from Rock'n'Rose and this black one is only divine! Hopefully Mammy is reading this, and gets it for my Birthday ;) I actually picked up a gorgeous High-Low top from Yours Clothing ( Don't forget you can get £10 off your first order using "Blogger 9" at checkout!). I bought it quite a few sizes up, It's the perfect top for my days off, when all I do is catch up with friends or hit the shops!It also comes in an array of colours, and I'm definitely going to pick up the grey, when pay day arrives! I love wearing it with wet look leggings, and my black Over the Knee boots and a nice chunky scarf. It's incredibly easy, and I'm all snuggled up and cosy!

 I love adding silver accents to black. I used to be more of a gold gal, but silver has been creeping up on me, more and more! I love stacking multiple rings, as well as double layering them with midi rings. I just love the look and feel quite cool for once, I'm not going to lie! Paired with a slouchy jumper, ankle grazer jeans and a pair of Brogues, I feel like I should be hanging out in Brick Lane 24/7. Primark, Miss Selfridge and Topshop are my favourite shops for nice necklaces at the moment. Primark would probably be my favourite,they're dirt cheap, and they've come on in leaps and bounds and every time I go in there, I'm amazed with the new bits in. At the moment, they're limited edition collection is absolutely gorgeous, so nice I'm thinking of wearing one of them to my cousin's wedding next weekend. Another way to wear black is of course with sequins. I'm a huge fan of sequins, and wear them all year round. This particular one from Wallis is absolutely stunning, and I'm thinking of getting it for my Birthday! It's so pretty, and I know I'd get so much wear our of it. For £99 it's a great little Jacket, and I know I'd wear it to death. As there's black in it, there's endless possibilities of what you could wear this with. A Simple white tee, a skater skirt and this jacket would look as nice as if you glammed it up for a night out with your girls!
