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.comĀ 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,…

City trip: Bratislava

I love weekend breaks away and I usually follow a simple rule in picking a destination: cheapest flights on Ryanair available. It works most of the time. This is exactly how I ended up booking a weekend break in Bratislava. I was told to expect a scene from Eurotrip so imagine my surprise and delight…

Trend test

I sometimes flick through magazine pages amazed with some of the trends being featured. Who and why would ever want to wear that?! On the other hand, some of my nearest & dearest consider my wardrobe quite ‘out there’ and only the other day I had a chat with my boy who confirmed that he…

I slept with Anja

I love discovering new brands and after my recent trip to Warsaw, I am doing a bit of a trial run of some Polish designers and brands. So far so good! This t-shirt if from She’s a riot – love the funky brand name, the slogan on the tee is cool (I slept with Anja)…

Fashion innovation

I admire people who go after what they want and especially those with an innovative idea. I always try to support them so when Chris & Gill contacted me asking whether I would like to try out their new product I agreed to give it a go. Was I skeptical? Yes. I liked the story…

Dunnes Stores AW’14

For the first time in 6 years Dunnes Stores hosted a fashion show to launch their new collection. Not just a fashion show. They have transformed their Georges Street store into an enchanted forest with fabulous models swishing down the isle to Kate Bush tunes. Personally all I missed was a unicorn! (Joke). They had…
