Shoe Style Saturday – Ankle Boots for Spring

posted in: Fashion | 1

Spring has sprung but it is still cold enough to keep those boots on. Instead reach for those ankle boots to keep you warm and cosy but not too hot.

 

Ankle Boots

Early spring is all about layering as early morning it is frosty so you will want to keep your feet warm. Ankle boots are the perfect footwear right now. I have trawled through hundreds of styles and colours and have found 4 that I think you’ll like.

Also found some pictures on Pinterest for some style inspiration. Also if you click the picture it will take you to buy them.

 

Pearl Embellished Boots

They will not be for everyone. They are quirky but fun and girly. Pair with jeans and a white t-shirt for a casual look.

 

 

Pearl Embellished Heeled Boot €60.81

 

 

 

Brown Wrap Tie Boot

These brown ankle boots from New Look are such an investment piece. They could be worn with a denim dress or a cute tea dress and again perfectly teamed with indigo jeans, t-shirt and a blazer to dress it up.

 

Western Brown Wrap Tie Boot €37.82

 

 

 

 

Sand Suede Chelsea Boots

Chelsea Boots are one of my favourite boots. They will literally stay in your wardrobe for years. Again with these Chelsea Boots they can be dressed up or down. Adding a blazer for a night out and a cardigan for the school run.

 

 

Suede Chelsea Ankle Boots €51.35

 

 

 

 

Black Chelsea Boot

Keeping the best until last. The classic black Chelsea Boot. These are my favourites. Keep them casual or wear them on a night out with friends or on a date. Perfect for a lunch meeting or the school run. Also knowing that Victoria Beckham is a fan (see picture below) makes it an easier choice to wearing flats.

These are from ASOS and for €54.05 they are real leather. Definitely worth investing in pair of these boots.

Valentine’s Day Lingerie with a difference

posted in: Beauty | 0

With Valentine’s Day coming there are so many advertising of Valentines Lingerie. So this year switch things up with the NYX Cosmetics Lid Lingerie. Yes thats right for your eyes only.

NYX Lid Lingerie have 12 colours in total to choose from and I received 4. Since then my collection has grown and have favoured these instead of the higher price eye tints.
There are so many liquid eyeshadows on the market. Most of them have unbelievable fall out. Meaning that within an hour the shimmer has fallen onto your face.

 

Science bit…

NYX Lid Lingerie is a new weightless sheer eye tint with a delicate pearl finish. It will has a mousse like texture and can be used light or built up for a more defined statement colour.

 

How to use it?

The NYX Lid Lingerie can be used a few different ways. It can be worn all over the lid, used on the outer v of the eye or add to the inner corner of a smokey eye look.

Does it work?

Yes and with great ease. It is long lasting and stays in place. The best part is that you do not need to be a professional makeup artist or have a million brushes to apply it. I used my ring finger for the above picture. Each Lid Lingerie comes with a lipstick like applicator making it very easy to place on the eye.

What I liked?

The price point, the colour range, the quality of the product and the best part was that after hours the colour had not moved. It had not ended up all over my face. Achieving a professional shimmery glitter effect but with no effects of glitter fallout.

 

Each Lid Lingerie cost just €8 . One of the best things about NYX Cosmetics is that they are a cruelty free brand.

Dior Ribbon Slingback’s – Treat Your Way

posted in: Fashion | 0

Dior, YSL or Chanel , yes we all lust over designer shoes, clothes or handbags. We would all love to have a wardrobe like one of the Kardashians and when the day comes that I win the lotto I suppose I will be heading to all the designer stores. Until then I am always on the look out for bags that look like Dior or Chanel designs but without the logo and the price tag.

 

 

Dior J’adior Slingback Pumps

I spotted these a few months ago on some bloggers I follow. Again not everyone is going to love them but as they are Dior I immediately think of Carrie on Sex and The City, running around Paris. To me Dior screams Paris. It is one of the first designer lipsticks I purchased and it was amazing. Now 20 years later I am lusting once again over Dior and dreaming of wearing more than the lipstick.

 

 

Skip forward to today….

As I was browsing through Penneys , Primark for my readers outside Ireland, I spotted a pair of slingback pumps. Immediately I took out my phone as I really couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

 

 

€730 vs €14

Ok so Primark can’t make exact copies but with that price difference I won’t mind that the J’adior is not on the ribbon. Saving €716 will certainly make it easier to love my Primark shoes.

 

 

Kitten Heel Perfection

Kitten heels are everywhere. A few years ago there were hardly any available now it seems brands are making one designer with multiple heel heights. This is the best concept I have seen in a very long time as anything over 100mm and I cannot stand for more that an hour in them.

 

Outfit Inspiration

Still not sold on the kitten heel. I took these looks from Pinterest

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where to buy?

Primark shoes were spotted in Liffey Valley Penneys €14 , and it you would like to just browse the Dior site , click here
