Sequin city

I rarely wear sequins,they often remind me of being 12 and
going to weddings and birthday parties. Ive vastly matured since then and i've come to the conclusion that christmas and NYE are the perfect opportunity to glitter it up - check out these beauties -

OUTLET’s new AW campaign shoot

                   OUTLET 2013 
Forget having to stick to deep plums and gold tones Cobalt blues and pastel pinks are in for A/W and I'm lovin it. This season brings so many changes to traditional winter warmers. Check out what The OUTLET in Banbridge has in store with savings of 30% to 70% off the RRP on these gorgeous winter looks.



 


Blush Pink
The runways were awash with blush pink for autumn/winter and you can get this gorgeous catwalk look with beautiful blush pink pieces like this stunning sequin dress available at Next Clearance.  Of all the pastels, pink in particular is hugely popular with many fashionistas grabbing oversized coats in this surprisingly flattering hue. 
One of the key colours this season, wear it head to toe or as an accent colour with winter greys, black, burgundy, minky browns and cobalt blue. 



Cobalt blue
Electric, striking and bold, cobalt blue is a big trend this season.  Wear it top to toe to make a real style statement and add a kick of colour to your feet with some contrasting red stilettos giving you a striking finishing touch.



Grey
A sophisticated grey coat is a hard fashion statement to beat.  Grey is the new black and can be worn with absolutely anything.  We love this sumptuous grey wool coat with fur detail available from Armani Exchange at The Designer Studio – teamed perfectly with this burgundy leather dress which are another two big trends this season – this outfit is a style hit!

The £5 formal dress




Swear down,this dress cost me a fiver. 
This is why everyone should have already jumped on the ebay bandwagon. Its a brand new,this season red full length gown and I paid £5.20 for it. I was looking for more of a maxi than a formal dress cause I hate formal dresses that look too "formal" if that makes sense. It fitted me perfectly and just hung on my frame. Love it. Ebay. Get on it.

Liverpool calling


I recently went to visit my big brother Caolan in Liverpool,that's where he's at university and my mama and I went over to see him. ( to go shopping )


He's having the time of his life and is bankrupt already-obvs. 





The shopping didn't disappoint and it's safe to say that I'm actually in love with forever21. I plan on heading back in January with the boy there will be less shopping (depending on his patience) but more alcohol cause I'll finally be legal!


















 We also hit up the gorgeous Carnatic spa and enjoyed a mud treatment,sauna,jacuzzi and a Swedish hot stone massage. The spa itself is situated in-between a beautiful suburban street and the staff were so lovely.




 We stayed in the signature living hotel and as you can see it was incredible. We got a great price for the room because we stayed mid-week and We were lucky enough to stay in a 'sanctum' room,with 3 double beds,huge sofas,iPod docks,a huge tv,a kitchen and a giant juacuzzi. The hotel also had possibly the nicest staff ever. It was the best.
 We weren't complaining.





I highly recommend both signature living and the carnatic spa. We had such a great time and I cant wait to be back. It was nice seein my bro again too,spose. 


Happy Sunday!
