Oh sweet lamb of divine.
What is with me and Mulberry?! I can’t explain it. One look at their buttery, gorgeousness and I’m dreaming about their handbags. I’m not a label head by any means but I do love beautifully made items and this is one of them. Read more…
It has been a while since I have posted an Outfit of the Day. Today is a casual outfit. I was running around today – work to get done, toddler to run after… you know the story. I did however make some time to head to the park, I’m there any chance I can get these days. I blame the lack of direct sunlight. Read more…
I was recently sent a Glitter Doll Designs personalised Jute Bag. It is absolutely adorable so I had to share. Read more…

I also just updated my Bump & Baby Blog – 26 weeks Pregnant!
Have a lovely night everyone :)
I couldn’t decide whether to post this on my bump blog or here but since I’m wearing ordinary clothes, i.e. not maternity wear, I thought I would keep it here. So many of you have asked to see a bump picture, here I am, 20 weeks pregnant.
Please note that the sun was shining when I got dressed, if only for a minute. We’ll just ignore the hail showers for now.
Jeggings – Penneys / Primark
Boots – Roxy
Top – Dunnes stores (but sold everywhere for Summer)
Cardi – Forever21 (few seasons ago)
Necklace – RubyCotton.com
Glasses – Accessorize
Spring fever anyone?? My hair is a slept-in-style with a quick run of the brush. I didn’t have time to faff. I didn’t bother adding a Face of the Day as I’m wearing the same old, same old today – Nars Sheer glow foundation, MUFE hd powder, MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow all over my eye and Daniel Sandler mascara (love!). I applied lip gloss but then ate toast so I doubt there was any left. Man, how my life has changed.
Have a great day!
My lovely Mammy bought me a gorgeous purse from Ted Baker for Christmas (pic below). I absolutely love it! This morning I stumbled upon the matching laptop case… Uh Oh!
Said gorgeous purse…
And now the matching lap top case…
You can get the purse here – Link! (£95)
And the case here – Link! (£49)
You can see why I need both right? :) At least the case is far cheaper than the purse. Hmm… How often do I lug my dear mac book around though?! At most I bring it my mum’s house and I also have it out when travelling. Think that just about justifies a splurge.
On another note, I always wondered what my Mother’s fascination was with luggage. She once asked for a suitcase for Christmas and I thought she had gone mad. To me that was the same as asking for a nice hoover. Lately though I have found myself lusting after some nice luggage pieces, what has become of me?!
Time for a little fashion haul. I picked up some shoes and clothes in the US but some are from here in Ireland.
Bought anything nice lately?
I picked up these shoes yesterday and had to share. They were an absolute bargain!
I bought them in a shop in the Ilac Centre (Dublin). Before I get to the shop I have to admit that I haven’t been in the Ilac Centre for years. Not since my Nannie used to leave me sitting on the rocks around the fake waterfall with a bar of Dairy Milk (back in the good aul days when it was safe leaving your child somewhere public) while she did her shopping. Anyway, I used their car park yesterday and had a wander.
The shop is called Cans and sells only Coverse style and Vans style shoes – not the real thing mind you, nor are the supposed to be copies They’re just in-the-style-of.
I saw eight pairs that I really liked but eventually settled on this khaki pair. The best part is that they only cost €15!! They’re lovely on and I am positively delighted with myself.I should mention that if it’s necessary to try them on before you buy as there is not a whole lot of consistency with sizing.
Outfit of the Day posts featuring these cuties to follow.
