Checking in…

8 10 2012

I’m startin to think my chaotic life is always going to be that way! I’m not even gonna apoligse for my absence – even my bloglovin account has been neglected. Trying to sort it all out – working on a lovely to do list.

But in news, I am an Auntie now! Beautiful Juliet Lily was born two weeks ago. She had us all worrying at first, but I am thrilled to be spending time with her now. She’s a dote! And they think she looks like me. Posting a pic – see what you think!

Socially, life has been awesome. Loads of fun things happening! Dublin in the Autumn, you can’t beat it!

Fashion wise, I’ve kept the shopping to a minimum. But….I think my sister is delivering something amazing to me this weekend from Germany that is surely going to deserve a good long blog post. Fingers crossed she gets her hands on this for me!

Lots of love people xoxoImageImageImage

Printed Jeans #2

16 05 2012

Fast becoming a new obsession of mine, the printed jean look. I love jeans. I wear them all the time! They are very much a staple in every girl’s wardrobe, but the printed jean is a good way to break out of your style rut. Both of my (new) jeans have been paired with really plain tops and some interesting jewellery. The weather is still awful here so my tanned legs aren’t getting much of an outing. Come on, Summer! Haven’t we waited long enough!


Jeans – Marks and Spencers

Bracelets – Topshop and ASOS

Ring – Primark

T- Shirt – Zara 

I spotted similar jeans on Lauren Conrad at Coachella this year. As you guys know, I totally love her. When running through M&S one day, I saw these jeans out of the corner of my eye. It actually led to me having a good root there where I picked up a tropical print top and debated over a lace yellow dress for nearly forty minutes!

What do you think of fashion’s new take on ‘The Jean’? Any suggestions for other kinds?


PS. I also tried an Ombre-esque nail art idea!


Greetings from Boracay!

Ah I miss the blotting world! I keep checking in with Metro Chica in an attempt to keep in the know but I’m not doing to well! Having the most amazing time on my travels. Beijing was all I dreamed of, and more. And Boracay was nearly too beautiful to be true! Hong Kong later today 🙂 Hope you are all well!
