Irish Beauty Show 2013 – My Buys

Glitz up trainers with Stickcons

Yes I know I’m back with another glittery post haha! But you know how I love to support Irish Businesses and Stickcons is just that. I was sent these to try out and I just love them!  I glitzed up mine and my daughters trainers.

stickcons trainers before afterI was worried these would be a bit fiddly tricky to put on but nope, they were really easy and took me like 5 minutes to do. They are also really sticky! :)

kids stickonsWhat do you think? I live these and think they are a really fun activity for kids to customise their shoes (I found it quite fun too) and I like how happy my shoes look when I catch a glimpse of them :p

Stickcons cost €12 and come in a range of colours, you can buy them online or in Heatons stores. Also find them on Facebook & Twitter to keep up to date with them

I’ve been shopping….again. Pennys Haul and a poll

Helloooo, hope your all having a relaxing weekend. Well I’ve been shopping again, I’ve been trying so hard to cut back :( My clothes have taken over my boyfriends wardrobe too and yet I still have no space, I think I’ll do a blog sale or something, I’ve a few pretty dresses that no longer fit?! As I’ve said before shopping takes my mind of   stressful things going on in my life right now, even if only for a few hours it just helps, retail therapy as they say.

Anyway here’s what I bought in Penny’s I had loads picked out (I was on a budget so had to put stuff back….sigh), their Spring stuff is amazing, so pretty! Their best yet I’d say!

Pennys_primark skull stud jumperDeffo my favourite of what I bought, this studded skull jumper, I was gonna buy some pretty blouses but it’s still so cold here in Ireland, and we don’t seem to get Summers anymore, maybe 3 weeks max lol! So I get good wear out of jumpers that’s my excuse for buying it and sticking with it ;)

wine cardigan pennys_oprimarkGot this wine coloured cardigan too it’s a very nice on and cozy….again it’s cold…..I neeeeeded it ;)

wine bodycon skrt pennysGot a wine coloured bodycon skirt too, these are always so handy especially for tops that are just a wee bit short for leggings! My tights are from Dressmylegs.ie they do the most high quality and unusual tights, reasonable prices too :D

pennys_primark blazer laceI actually got this a couple of weeks ago, I needed a black blazer as it was my Grandad’s funeral god bless his soul x♥x

Pennys_primark shortsI bought these shorts in hope that we might get some sun  ;) But these are nice with tights too for the cold weather

Oh and I’ve a question for ye all…..I tried on a pair of high wasted shorts, they looked lovely from the front, very slimming but when I turned to look at how my bum looks (as you do)  they made my bum look flat, long and wide (I think) all at the same time?!? Maybe it’s just me being paranoid? But what do ye think of them? Maybe I’m just too small in height for them haha!

Enjoy your weekend  what ever you’re up to, I’m off into town now, not for shopping though!! xx

Leopard Print Wedge Trainers

I’ve been shopping…..again!! Did the last of my Christmas shopping yesterday yiiiipppeeee! And have most things wrapped, I love wrapping presents I must say, I find it relaxing :)

I didn’t plan on buying as much as I did yesterday, but on the way something brought up more hurt and anger of a horrible thing that I’m going through at the moment and basically I vented all my anger into shopping, weird I know haha!

I bought loads and loads of stuff in Pennys/Primark, Deals, Pumpkin Patch, H&M, HMV and well practically every shop in Blanch!!! Not all for me though, bought clothes and presents for the kids, the BF and friends :) But here’s my favourite thing I bought for myself yesterday from New Look!

Leopard print wedge trainers

If you read my blog you prob know I looooove leopard print!! Don’t think I’ll ever tire of it lol! I normally wouldn’t have got these as they were €30 but they were on sale and HALF PRICE!! So I bagged them for just €15! Whooo!

Also got these cute earings for under €3

Diamond heart shaped earings

New Look had loads of shoes and clothes half price so if you’re doing a bit more shopping I’d head there :)
