Go Paperless This Christmas | FN&M x Paperless Post

-
With three days left to Christmas I think it's safe to say that the cut off point for sending post is well and truly gone.! Unless of course if you go paperless and use Paperless Post to send out your last minute Christmas cards. 

Paperless Post is an online platform used to send electronic post. Paperless Post works on a system of coins where each card/invitation cost as little as 2 coins (€5 will get you 20 coins). I have wrote a whole blogpost on Paperless Post where I have explained how it works in more detail - read *here*

Oh Deer | Halloween Makeup Tutorial

-
HAPPY HALLOWEEN MONTH.!!
I love October - not only is it by birthday but it's Halloween.!! By far Halloween is my favorite holiday (yes even over Christmas) I love how its all spooky and creepy and its the one time of the year that you can really play around with makeup and get creative.!!

Every year I love to paint my face for Halloween - even if I go nowhere I'll be walking around the house looking all sorts of crazy.! This year's first look is a cute deer that is perfect for anyone who going to a last minute Halloween part and doesn't know what to go as just whip of some bonzer and pop your hair up in space buns and your off.! (Alternatively if you don't have a white eyeliner in your makeup bag use a black eye liner to draw leopard print marks to replace the white dots)

The BEST Self Tan Eraser | Iconic Bronze Review

-
We all love a nice golden tan but there is nothing worse than patchy fade marks or the dreaded dark marks that cling to the back of your ankles for dear life.! So when I seen some of my fave bloggers (Aoibhe from The Secret Obsessions Blog & Arlene from GirlyInspoCorner) were loving the Iconic Bronze Tan Eraser I had to give it a go for myself.

#SOSUSKIN Cream Contour Sticks | Review

-
Well hello there.!
I feel like it's been a hot minute since I last posted to here (#SorryNotSorry!) I guess I just wasn't feeling it there for awhile so FN&M took a back seat. Sometimes you need some down time - but I'll talk about that in a later post - today is makeup day.!!

SoSueMe or Suzanne Jackson for those of you who don't know is one of Ireland's top bloggers who has launched quite a few beauty products over the years. Her latest makeup product to hit our shelves was SOSUSKIN - a collection of cream contour sticks. The range consists of three contour shades (Warm, Cool & Dark), one highlight/glow (Iridescent) and a concealer (Light) and retail at €15.95.

The Future is Paperless | FN&M x Paperless Post

-
As you know I'm obsessed with stationary (I love buying notebooks as much as I do clothes.!) so you can imagine how excited I was when I got the opportunity to work with Paperless Post and explore the world of well paperless post.! 

We all have to do our bit to save the environment and by doing something as simple as sending an electronic birthday card this year instead of a paper one will make all the difference.!

Interview With A Blogger | Niamh Webb O'Rourke

-
This week I got to interview another one of my favorite Irish bloggers Niamh Webb O'Rourke from Love Life. To say I am obsessed with Niamh's style would be an understatement.! I love how she's not afraid to mix colours or prints, the photo below is a perfect example of this - she definitely inspires me to try and be a little more bold with my style too.!

Follow Niamh on instagam (@naimh_lovelife) for MAJOR style inspo.!

I always like to start off with a easy question (but some might say the most important) - Tea or Coffee?
Is it weird if I say neither - I am more of a diet coke or water Gal!

What made you decide to start blogging?
I just kind of started it because I had a strong love for fashion and it was a way to justify my shopping problem to my parents, haha.

Stay Stylish on Paddy's Day with Pretty Little Thing | Collab

-

Im super excited to be collaborating with one of my favorite online stores PrettyLittleThing for today's post.! I love PLT - they bring us the latest fashion trends with affordable price tags all without having to leave our house.!- and when they approached me to do a post with them around one of my fav holidays - well it was a match made in heaven.!

Growing up I never missed a parade. I have so many great memories of watching a fine show of tractors and vintage cars go down the street with my family as we desperately tried to catch sweets someone was throwing out the back of a trailer (just me? lol) and as we grow up we seemed to find ourselves in the pub Paddys Night.!

So I decided to put together two outfits to give you some inspiration on how to stay stylish this Paddy's Day - whether your heading off to the parade or a night on the town with your squad.!!

Look 1 - Day at the Parade

This is for my gals who want to be comfortable - but cute.!

With full reign of the site I decided to pick out this long sleeved khaki bodycon dress and wanting to stay on theme (ie green) I paired it with a lime shaggy cardi that brings the dress to life. I've actually fallen in love with this dress-cardi combo and cannot wait to rock it at the parade.! I opted to add some comfort with a pair of cons and a backpack (coz where else will store my stash of sweets.!?) and kept accessories to a minimum as this cardigan can stand for itself.!

Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo

-
Last weekend I headed to Dublin to see the Festival of Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo.


This festival took place after hours at the Zoo when all the animals were safely tucked away in bed for the night. Instead of seeing real animals that night we were treated to these amazing silk crafted lanterns.
