The Girl with the "Fake" Tattoo

IMG_1041

This weekend I received a little package in the post with some tattoo transfers from "Fake Tattoos." I was more than honoured to be asked to collaborate with this company for The Sequin Cinderella.  As you will have seen in my post Costume Couture I am no stranger to temporary tattoos and I love to dress in costume. However, this company have shown me a whole new side to body art.
If you are like me and change your mind as often as you change your shoes, then a permanent tattoo is definitely not for you. These beautiful transfers are the perfect 'pain-free' solution. 
You can chose a design to suit your mood, your style or even your outfit, with each tattoo lasting anywhere from 3-10 days depending on your skin-type.
For this shoot, I chose to keep my clothing and make-up very simple with a Tube Top from Topshop and a pink lipgloss from Mac Make-up as I wanted to let the tattoos be the main feature of my look.
Some people may be under the illusion that tattoos only fit a certain 'genre' or 'stereotype,' yet, what "Fake Tattoos" have done, is show us that they can not only be interchangeable, but they can be feminine, pretty and suit anyone who wishes to wear one. The beauty of the tattoos speak for themselves.
Any VIP discount codes will be posted on the "Fake Tattoos" Facebook and Twitter pages so be sure to follow them to guarantee getting some amazing body art at even more amazing prices.
Let your body be your most beautiful accessory with "Fake Tattoos"

A Walk in the Park

IMG_0901

Although it is now Spring time, there is still an air of Autumn in Ireland at the moment, with the trees still bare and the dead leaves still scattered on the ground. So to brighten things up during a refreshing walk in the park I opted for a Neon lime Blazer and my Louis Vuitton Multicolore Speedy in Black. As soon as I feel the slightest rise in the temperature and see the stretch in the evenings I immediately go into summer mode and want to be outside all the time, I also want my clothes to reflect my sunshine mood so the more colourful the better!
One of my favourite features from this outfit is my shoes which I purchased from Storets. I adore the detail on them... again showing my love for studs and spikes! They make a rather stylish fashion accessory but would also prove very useful if I ever needed a lethal weapon! 
Enjoy!

Marni for H&M Lookbook


Marni-15

From reading "The Sequin Cinderella" one would swear that I worked in marketing for H&M when the truth is I simply adore their designer collaborations. 
My favourites to date have been Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and of course Versace which you have seen here and here
On the 8th of March the Marni for H&M collection will be launched on the website www.hm.com and in over 250 stores around the world. I personally cannot wait to get shopping. 
Here for you is a sneak peak at the lookbook so you can pick out your favourite pieces in preparation for a shopping spree! I am loving the neckpieces, the colourful tshirts and the elegant dresses so I can imagine my credit card taking a bit of a battering with this collection. However, receiving Marni clothing with a H&M pricetag will definitely soften the blow! Let me know which of the pieces you prefer! 
I look forward to posting pictures of my purchases in the very near future! Enjoy!

J'adore Dior


I absolutely love Dior's cosmetic range, from their make-up to their perfumes and cleansers, the whole range is the epitome of luxury.
When I first bought one of their limited edition pieces I just could not wait to try out all the beautiful products and colours they contained. However, simply knowing that these items could never be replaced made me a little apprehensive to use them. Instead I decided to turn these items into collectors pieces, keeping them ever so perfect in their little dustbags and boxes. I take them out only to admire them or occasionally to wear the bracelet or charms but I always ensure they are kept in immaculate condition. My favourite from my collection would have to be the Bracelet De Maquillage. I would have bought this if I had seen it in a jewellery store as I love the style of the bracelet, never mind the fact that it has two beautiful coloured lipglosses hidden away inside.
Some people collect stamps, some people collect antiques, I just happen to collect Dior's Limited Edition Cosmetics. Have you been lucky enough to purchase any of these limited edition items? If so, which is your favourite?
