Black Friday Deals 2016


Happy Thursday!! With tomorrow being Black Friday, I have combined a list of discounts for you all to use on some of my favourite websites – how exciting – take deep breathes.
Before the list of codes, here are some tips for shopping on Black Friday so that you don’t overspend and regret it for the rest of the month when you can’t afford bread and butter:

1. Write a list of what you want and need to buy for presents
2. Know your spending limit – you are only saving if you are buying things you need to buy…..says the shopaholic
3.Look at the returns policy, especially on clothes/shoes – the horror if you couldn’t return something that didn’t fit you
4. Enjoy]& don’t blame me when you buy unnecessary items!

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Recent Purchases

Happy Hump Day girls,

One thing I have come to realise lately, as I try and fit my clothes in my wardrobe, is that I am indeed a shopaholic. I have always loved a bit of shopping for certain nights out or events, but it has now gotten to the stage where I have more outfits than nights out! I thought I would share some of the pieces I have picked up so far for A/W with you all for some inpso!!
PS. Is it just me or are there so many nice pieces out there!

Did I mention that I love Pennys?

Pennys. I honestly don’t know what I would do without Pennys, and they have seriously stepped up their game recently. Last week with the press launch for their A/W16 collection, I must have screenshotted so many goergrous pieces on verious peoples snapchats, that I will be hoping to get my hands on when they land is shops!

It is not only their clothing and footwear sections that I drool over, but their homeware and beauty section has began to excite me just as much! While I was in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre yesterday, I popped into Penny’s and picked up two things.

The two items that stood out were this Rose blush coloured bomber Jacket and gold sandals. (see pictures below with prices).

The bomber stood out as soon as I seen it as I love the colour pink in all shades. They do have bombers in at the moment in black and kahki colours also, but I thought that the blush colour would be a bit different. I tried it on and I was a bit hesitant but I bought it anyways as I feel that if you don’t get something when you see it in Pennys, it will more than likely be gone when you go back to look for it!

The gold sandals have been on my mind for weeks. I wanted them each time I seen them, but I wasn’t too sure if they would look a bit too out there or tacky on. When I went in yesterday and seen that they still had my size, I decided that I might as well get them and try them on with a few things and I love them now. In fact, I liked them so much that I wore them out last night 🙂

Have a lovely week 🙂

Lady in Red…or Coral

Happy Sunday!

Last night I went out for my good friend Shannon’s 21st to a nightclub in Dublin called Xicos. It was brilliant, and we even got to dance on tables – well on top of couches in the booths haha.
I finally got to wear my new favourite dress from Zara that I bought a few weeks ago.

It is coral in colour with lace detail on the top and a skater style bottom half. It has a low front and open back, with material inserted in the top front half so that no bra is needed. I absolutely love it and it was so comfortable to wear! I wore gold accessories along with gold heels from River Island that are old stock.

Primark Haul – Spring 2016

For the past two weeks I have been feeling like my wardrobe needed a bit of a revamp.  I have been living in dark colours and felt I needed to pick up a few pieces that will do me for the transition into spring –  I say that as I am currently sitting in a big jumper and it’s raining outside haha but I know the sunny weather will be soon on its way! – (or at least I hope).

As I was on a tight budget, I decided that I would just head to Pennys in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre to pick up one or two things – but lets just say I ended up with a bit more than one or two!! Here are some of the clothing and footwear pieces that I picked up.
So firstly I picked up some shoes. I seen the gorgeous red/orange heels and thought firstly they would be amazing on my mam as she loves anything coral, but when she said she didn’t need them I immediately tried them on for me haha. I then seen that they were €22 and thought it would be silly of me not to get them. They are suede, so I will wait for the sun before I wear these.
Next I seen these in the corner of my eye and knew I had to have them. They had them in white also, but I prefered this colour. They were €7 – complete bargain.
I needed flats for work and also for casual wear, so I went for these brown ballerina lace ups that were €11 –  I immediately thought these would look lovely with jeans and my white blazer.
Next up trousers, I have a few pairs of nice trousers for work but they just include black and grey. So these were exactly what I was looking for. They are quite roomy and come with a brown belt. They look really smart for work and were only €14,
Tops are something I feel you can never have enough of. I wanted to get away from the usual black tops I wear so I picked up the following four. The first three will be for more workwear and occasion wear whereas the fourth is a bit more casual – but has the gorgeous statement neckline that makes it a bit more fancy! Prices included in captions. 
Hope you enjoyed this post! I will be starting to upload a lot more workwear looks on my instagram and snapchat, so feel free to follow me on both. 🙂 x
