Christmas Day Looks

I am not sure about you but I like to be comfortable on Christmas Day. For me it's a day to relax, eat and spend time with your family. So with this in mind I have pulled together some comfortable Christmas Day looks for you. They are all from VeroModa which is one of my favourite high street shops, where quality meets affordability.

If you wanted you could mix these looks up and wear a different look on Stephens Day, if you're going to another dinner or heading out for drinks.

To dress up the knitwear I would add some statement jewelry e.g. necklace, bracelets, earrings and rings. If you want to add some glam to the look, add a pair of heels, knee boots or ankle boots and you're good to go.

Cocoa Brown Bronzing Gel & 1 Hour Tan Mousse

I finally got my hands on the new Cocoa Brown Matte Bronzing Gel, I also purchased the 1 Hour Tan Mousse and double-sided pink velvet tanning mitt online from Cloud10 Beauty. The cost for each item is as follows, tanning mitt €5.99, mousse tan €7.99 and bronzing gel €6.99. The price point is super affordable.Marissa Carter is the creator of this brand and she is one fabulous Women.

I have been tanning for many years so I know what works for my skin. I apply tan religiously on a weekly basis, as I always feel better with a glow. Generally I like a golden tan, as that is how I would naturally tan. I have three tanning products that I go between and Cocoa Brown is one of them.

Cocoa Brown tan is perfect for putting on and heading straight out the door. It does not have the heavy tan smell that normally comes with developing or instant tan. My Husband has become an expert back tanner at this stage. He thought the mousse was lighter than my usual tan but when he applied it he noticed dark…

Wedding Table Names

If you have been following me for awhile you will know that I am all about the detail. So much so I have written some blog posts on it. As I have said before a little detail can add that extra bit of sparkle to your wedding.

When it comes to choosing what you will do for your table layout you might just think, ah sure we will number from 1-12. I would say give it more thought, as you could do something different that your guests will remember or if you're happy with going for numbers then maybe do something different with it.



When we were getting married,I did not want the plain table numbers. I wanted to do something different (and my Husband was happy to go along!!) so after much searching I decided to name each table after a quality of marriage. It all sounds very soppy I know, but it was special to us and romantic I think.  Below are the qualities that we choose:

Love (this was our table)
Friends
Family
Laughter
Happiness
Joy
Faithful
Kindness
Romance
Vow


Once you get going …

Virgo Boutique Little Red Top

If you follow me on snapchat you would have seen this gorgeous red peplum top. I received it last week from Virgo Boutique. They are an Irish company located in Limerick and you can also purchase online and they offer worldwide delivery. Lady VB has everything from dresses to handbags, they have some fab pieces for occasion and casual wear.




I wore this top out over the weekend, I paired it with skinny jeans and heels. The quality of this top is fab and the fit was perfect. I love a peplum top as it just skims over the tummy area and is very flattering on.








I wore a medium size which is a size 10, this top would be perfect to wear over Christmas.The deep red colour is beautiful and the lace detail is just so pretty. There are little diamantes in the top just at the bust and they catch the light beautifully when worn.    











You can purchase the top here and it retails at €49.99.
