Xpose Magazine - Beachwear Feature

IMG_7188

Last month I was delighted to be featured, yet again, in Irelands top fashion magazine "Xpose".
(I was last featured in the March, Mothers Day edition which you can see here.)
For the July edition, I was asked to show what I would wear for a day at the beach.
I am lucky enough to have a beach right at the end of my street so on the odd occasion that the weather is good I can just stroll down the road to the seaside.
You can read all about the look that I chose in the article below!
Have you guys been making the most of the Summer weather? Let me know what you like to wear for a day at the beach!

Adios Lanzarote

IMG_8169

It is with great sadness that I write this, the last of my Lanzarote blog posts.
I had such an amazing holiday and I can't believe how quickly the time passed...
 Now it just feels like a distant memory.
I did, however, have a great time enjoying the weather and getting the chance to wear my Summer wardrobe. 
Thie look that I chose for my last evening in the sun was quite chilled out and casual with a lose cropped t-shirt and "motel" print tube skirt, both from Topshop.
I added a few turquoise accessories to match the skirt with earrings from the Anna Dello Russo for H&M collection, a bangle from Boudoir Boutique and a tooth shaped necklace which I borrowed from my Mum's jewellery box!
I hope you have enjoyed my holiday pictures as much as I have enjoyed taking them!
Adios Lanzarote - Until next time!

Hawaii meets Lanzarote

IMG_7966

Nothing quite says "Summer" like a Hawaiian print and I love River Island's take on it with this little crop top.
As the top itself was the main statement of the outfit, I kept the rest of the look very simple, pairing it with a plain black pencil skirt and an Alexander McQueen skull embossed clutch bag.

One thing I find about being on holidays is that it can get a little tiring having to wash and style your hair every day after swimming and sunbathing. My hair is so long and thick that blowdrying it can take anything up to an hour. I have told you before about my lifesaving hairpieces and this one is from "Hair Superstore" in Derry/Londonderry. They are so easy to use, you just tie your own hair up in a bun and clip the piece on top! The perfect, stylish solution for a lazy afternoon or a bad hair day!

The Sequin Leopard

IMG_8063

A holiday wouldn't be a holiday for "The Sequin Cinderella" without a touch of sequins right?
So here it is... my dash of sparkle!
I chose this floaty tunic top by "Jake" and matched it up with a touch of leopard print wearing shorts from River Island. I finished the look with some gold accessories, including my Alexander MCQueen skull ring which is a real statement piece. I also went for the Louis Vuitton "pochette" handbag in the original monogram colour. 
This particular evening we ate at my favourite restaurant in Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote. It is an Italian eatery called "La Trattoria" and you only have to look at the pictures of my beautiful food and cocktails for your mouth to start watering.

Flowers in her Hair

IMG_7911

One of my favourite Summer trends that is still going strong since last year is the flower hair garland.
Inspired by the festival trend, they have hit the high street this season in their hundreds with many different styles and colours available. I found this one in River Island and I had to have it. It really dresses up an otherwise casual outfit like the vest top from Topshop and pink shorts from Zara which I am wearing in the pictures.
I finished the look with this necklace which I found at Playa Banca Market in Lanzarote for just €15, definitely the bargain buy of my holiday.
As the days were passing by and my skin was becoming more and more tan I found that my MAC foundation was becoming increasingly too pale for my skin. I am obsessed with their Studio Fix Fluid as it gives perfect coverage for my skin which can be prone to break outs. Unfortunately MAC cannot be purchased anywhere in Lanzarote so I couldn't get my hands on a darker colour and had to try something new.
I went for the Estee Lauder "Double Wear" foundation as I had heard a lot about it.
This particular evening was the first time I had tried it and although the colour was much better for my changing skin tone, I did find the consistency a little thick and hard to blend. It definitely did the trick for the rest of the holiday but I have since gone back to my beloved MAC makeup which seems to work perfectly with my skin type.
