Zara - Skirt // Bag // Tank Top
Penneys - Necklace
Asos - Platform Shoes
Left Arm - Michael Kors Watch & Bracelets
Right Arm - Forever 21 & Wearhouse Braclets
Rings - Mixed

Penneys (Primark in the UK) have launched a limited edition range to their store awhile back and I hadn't bought anything just yet until I saw this eye catching necklace 2 weeks ago. It was only €10 and I could not leave it behind because I said to myself it would be so nice for a night out - Blingin'. Its such a 'pop' detail to any simple outfit.

I was super excited to wear my white crossover skirt from Zara at least before the end of the summer, its floral detail carved into the skirt is simply beautiful and a crossover skirt is always a must go area. Sits up high and comfortable with a zip to its side.

You all have seen my Asos platform sandals a few times in the past and certainly in my first post of them back in March, my Birthday outfit, HERE

Decléor BB Cream Review

Beauty Balms or BB creams are in vogue with beauty bloggers and editors at the moment. Having discovered the benefits of BB creams last summer, I was excited to hear news that Decléor has launched a new BB product from the stable of my favourite Hydra Floral range.

I was over the moon when Decléor sent me their BB cream to sample and this is what I found:

Swatch of Decléors BB Cream

The BB comes with an insert explaining how it should be applied (warming slightly in the palm and then using the finger tips to work from the nose out towards the ears) but I find that I get a better result if I apply with a foundation brush. It smells amazing with a fruity fragrance.  
Upon application, it blends seamlessly into my skin and leaves it feeling hydrated yet not sticky or tacky for ages afterwards. Doesn't feel greasy or too heavy and I definitely feel that the cream brightens my skin.


A BB cream that brings together the benefits of a 24-hour moisturiser and a foundation. For all skin types. A 5-in-1 product:

  • Provides 24-hour moisturising
  • Brightens and evens out the complexion
  • Refines the skin's texture and corrects imperfections
  • Protects from UVA/UVB (SPF 15)
  • Protects from urban pollution

The Decléor BB Cream retails for €35 for 40ml of product and can be purchased at Elizabeth C Beauty (Facebook Page Here), Upper Abbey Gate Street, Galway. One of Decléors first Irish retailers.

River Island Snapback // Topshop Cami Top // H&M Kicks // Pennys Bomber & Shorts // MK Watch // Jewellery Mix  

Sadly this is my one and only 'snapback' that I own, except my boyfriend has a great collection that I could borrow, thats if our heads were the same size tough :) This one I picked up at the start of the year on a little shopping spree and I do like the army print, it tends to match everything. 

My jogger shorts were a super buy from Pennys / Primark at the beginning of the Summer for something like, €11. I really got good wear out of these cause the were super easy to wear and went with anything - Sports Luxe Trend! My kicks are a buy from H&M way back when I was on holidays and I live in these.  Matching comfort with style is one of the greatest challenges facing us when planning our seasonal wardrobes. These shorts with an oversized sports jersey would look great. Opt for netting material, along with strips. They have the more sports effect.

Cami Top, Sunglasses & Ring Topshop // Shorts & Sandals Pennys // Chain H&M // Bracelets Mixed // MK Watch

I miss being able to wear this kind of outfit, its so comfortable and easy. The weather has turned here in Ireland but hopefully we will get some more sunshine before the end of summer. This is my last outfit from holidays (yes finally).
So above I am wearing a black crop cami from Topshop, white shorts from Pennys / Primark and last years gold sandals from Pennys / Primark. H&M gold link chain, I actually haven't bought jewellery from Topshop in the longest time, I buy in H&M now because they don't tarnish and are way cheaper.

 Returned from Birmingham on Tuesday and had a great shopping weekend and a lovely time at the wedding :) View pics HERE on my Instagram. I wore a beautiful Georgia Hardinge dress from River Islands website (everyone is asking where I got my dress) with my famous Zara strap sandals and New Look white clutch for only €10. Kept my jewellery simple with gold plated earrings from River Island, MK Watch and Bracelets.

Wedding Guest Outfit.

Are you guys going to the Galway races??
