Sale picks & Happy Closet

January presents us with some new challenges every year and between the blues of returning to work, diet, exercise and everything else that seems like too much effort, I always struggle with my budget after an expensive Xmas shopping period. Sales don’t help and as much as I try to stay away, 3 pieces from…

Structured

I have a serious thing for structured sleeves. Although I like floaty ones as well… I might just have a thing for weird sleeves actually, now that I think about it. This outfit post was all about the oversized, unusually shaped sleeves of a very simple tunic. I must have taken these photos months ago…

Sticky

One thing that Barcelona definitely is on a warm November day is sticky. Although it was nice to leave the heavy coat in Dublin and jump back into a dress & a biker jacket, I could not control my frizzy hair and sort of melting makeup. Not the best look for outfit shots but when…

Vicky, Christina..

Barcelona of course! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love that movie. Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson AND Javier Bardem in one place = good times! I liked Barcelona first time I visited a few years ago but this time around I totally fell in love with the place. I think staying in less…

9-5 #Mustard

In autumn/winter I love a bit of mustard… colour of course. It’s perfectly muted, autumnal with a really warm feel to it. And it goes so well with black. If it comes in a form of a textured top with an incredible price tag of only € 20 – all the better. It’s very 9-5…

Geek-y

I met the optician’s recommendation that I wear glasses ‘only’ when I read, in front of a computer or drive (read: 99% of the time I’m not asleep) with mixed feelings. An opportunity to add another accessory? Tick. A dilemma considering that this accessory is actually on your face? Tick. An immediate urge to stock…

The Beauty Bootcamp

Just before the Beauty Bootcamp has launched their new Cheryl Beauty session, I had an opportunity to meet Liz and her team and go through a teaser session of the class. What to expect? A lot of tips! Any questions hair and makeup related? Girls will answer them all. They are absolutely lovely and put…

9-5 #Maxi sleeve

I am quite reliant on dresses when it comes to my daily 9 – 5 outfits. It’s obvious to me that it’s the easiest choice (no need to match, tuck in or out, no decisions to be made at 6am). I am often surprised how many women rely on separates for work assuming it’s the…

Itsfabuless

I’m far from being a beauty junkie and although I occasionally overspend on lipsticks (they’re SO difficult to ignore at the Mac counter!), cosmetics for me are more of a necessity (as bad as it sounds). Nothing like a good bargain so to help keep my clothes shopping budget healthy. I’m after discovering itsfabuless.com in a…

Travel mode

I really enjoyed taking the pics around pretty Bratislava and somehow I even managed to convince my boy to take a few shots of my outfit. It is not super-exciting. It is very much practical and it’s the kind of outfit I tend to go for when away. As they say: if it’s not broken,…
