Blush Beauties




Hi everyone! 
So it may be Blue Monday but around here, we like to put a pink touch on everything...

Blush is back for Spring...but did it ever go away? Long time readers and @stylebylaura followers will know that I adore this soft hue all year round. And while it has become my signature style...there's nothing quite like the first flush of Spring blush! I get so excited to see all the lovely new pieces landing in-store.

Here's the first edit of a few pieces that caught my eye this week. 
Expect many more rounds to come over the coming months :)











Have a lovely week,

Laura

Shiny Moments...

Hello everyone! Happy New Year and we hope you are all back to normal after the festive break! We will be resuming normal blogging over the next few weeks and we're excited to kick off this brand new year with some of our recent 'Shiny Moments'...


We had a lovely night away between Christmas & New Year in the beautiful Dunboyne Castle, Co Meath. Only 40 minutes from Dublin, it's an ideal spot for a little staycation, without spending hours on the road. The hotel couldn't have looked after us better and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there...

After a lovely afternoon in the spa area, we enjoyed a fantastic meal in The Ivy restaurant. The food was delicious and so nicely presented.


Whilst in Dunboyne, we took the opportunity to visit the lovely fashion and lifestyle boutique Nyles And Rafe. I picked up a fabulous pair of leather Lodi shoes in the sale....


And I chose this sage green blouse from the pre-Spring collections. How pretty are the little button details?



The decorations are all packed away for another year and we always love to replace them with fresh flowers at the start of January. Looking forward to Spring already!

Wishing you all a very Happy 2018!

Cosy winter vibes....

Happy Monday everyone! How fast December is going by, nearly half way through and 14 days to the big event!! I really need to get a handle on the old Christmas shopping this week and we are also in the middle of a rather cold snap. All the layers needed today! I have to say though, I much prefer this cold weather to high winds and rain!
Here are a few beautiful winter inspirational photos I love....







I hope you all have a good week ahead!

Take Care,

Anne xx

Black Friday: Hassle free International Shopping with AddressPal

And just like that, it's Black Friday week again! Where did this year go...we still can't believe it's November already! 

There's nothing like the word 'Sale' to spark frenzied excitement and an uncontrollable urge to shop! Our inboxes and social feeds are lighting up with offers, so if you're hoping to get a head start on your Christmas shopping, or just to treat yourself to something nice, then this is the ultimate weekend to do it! 

The sales are already in full swing Stateside and we couldn't resist a peek! Black Friday, as we all know, originated in the US and it's marketed on another scale entirely over there. 
If you're lucky, you can even bag some big bargains on investment designer pieces from the likes of Chloe, YSL and Stuart Weitzman. Take a look at some offers from our favourite international sites below...

Shopbop: up to 30% off full price using code MORE17
Click to shop Stuart Weitzman 


Nordstrom: Up to 50% Off

 Shop Badgley Mischka here



Saks: Up to 60% off



JCrew: 40% off full price using code GETGIFTING



But how many times have you fallen head over heels with something or, in my case, trawled the internet in search of specific item; and finally tracked it down on a US website, only to then get to the checkout and discover they don't ship internationally? Devastating! 

That's now a thing of the past thanks to AddressPal by An Post. This genius new service allows you to set up a proxy address in the UK/US, which you can then enter as the delivery address for your order. Simply create an account over on addresspal.anpost.ie and you're only a few clicks away from a whole new world of shopping opportunities! Then just sit back, relax and wait for your new goodies to be delivered to your local post office or right to your own door - hassle free!

I'm most excited about this service in relation to Sephora! I'm fully addicted to their range of sheet masks...and usually rely on friends bringing me back a stash when they are in Spain or France. With AddressPal, I can now stock up until my heart is content...and probably find a whole host other products that I absolutely *need* in the process! There's a different deal every day this week in the run up to Black Friday. As of this evening, it's up to 50% off selected lines! This beautiful Becca Palette has already caught my eye, down to $29 from $45. I'm too excited to see what's in store for Friday already!



Be sure to follow our social channels, where we'll be sharing more top picks and live updates as new deals go live over the whole weekend!

Happy Shopping :)
