Fanny Crown, The Queen of 60s Style

Fanny Crown, The Queen of 60s Style

What pops into your head when you think of the 60s. For me peace, love, music and the mini skirt all come to mind. Now as many of you know I am vintage obsessed! And in my mind one of the most revolutionary items in fashion was the mini. Not only did women no longer have to dress like their mothers but for the first time young people were leading the fashion stakes.

#ForeverAlone and Loving it!

Fair warning, this post is going to turn into a rant! So if you don’t want to hear it then look away now (I have lots of other posts that aren’t as angry as this once, please feel free to browse through them).

So it all started on Saturday night when I was out for a few social drinks with my housemate. All was going great and we were having a good time until IT happened. I did a very stupid thing…

Review La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

As some of you may already know I have always been a fan of La Roche-Posay. So I was delighted when I received the new Effaclar Duo [+]from a Cara Pharmacy goodie bag. (Yes I am still getting through all the fabulous goodies from the ITWBN meet up, from AGES ago).

So basically this cream is meant to improve blemishes, oiliness and clogged pores in the skin as well as correct and prevent marks. It…

Review: Just Addicted to Endora

Endora.ieis an Irish owned clothing shop who have recently launched their online shopping website. I felt so lucky when Endora got in touch with me to review their clothes (the first time anyone has approached me to review a product) and I was more than happy to oblige. They generously let me browse the website and choose an item myself, which was a ridiculously hard decision, but finally I…

Review: No 7 products

A couple of weeks ago Boots were running a promotion with No 7 and it was something I had to get in on. The blogging world was all a flutter with talk of what was in the beautiful gift box that you received when you bought two No7 products. So off I went to my local Boots to see what all the fuss was about. Now No 7 is not a brand I would have a lot of experience with but to be honest I may be…

Review: Le Roche Posay Rosaliac CC Cream

Recently I have meandered into the world of the CC/BB cream. For the past year or so I have been hearing great things about this CC cream and that BB cream but to be honest I didn’t really know what they were and I was too comfortable with my makeup routine to go about changing it.

But then it happened! Horrors or horrors I ran out of my daily foundation half way through my face right before…

So without further ado here is a quick post on what I wore to my housemates wedding recently.

Review: Pixy Strawberry Mousse Shower

Recently my kind and wonderful sister donated the Pixy Strawberry Shower Mousse to her little sister (moi!) And what a donation it was. Retailing at €12.95 for a 300ml jar this is gorgeous. It smells wonderful and there you get a lot of product for your moolah.

Vintage Tea Party

Recently I went to a vintage tea party as part of my friends hen party. We were encouraged to dress up in 1950s style and headed out to Curraghmore House in Waterford where it was held. When we arrived Karrena from Oh So Sweet Occasions had already set up a great tea party including bunting, lace tablecloths, cups and saucers, cutlery, sandwiches, cupcakes, cakes and a 50s soundtrack.

Culture Day: Enniscorthy Castle

I Discovered Enniscorthy Castle recently. Come see what I found!

So recently I found myself in Enniscorthy with my sister Belinda. As part of what she likes to call a “Culture Day” we decided to visit the castle. Now being a little bit of a history nerd I couldn’t wait to wander around the old stone building and see what I could discover, Belinda couldn’t wait to set eyes on an exhibition of Eileen Grey’s furniture that is held here.

For a paltry entry fee of…
