Black Friday at Carraig Donn

It's here...the best shopping day of the year! Happy Black Friday everyone :)

I'm delighted to team up with Carraig Donn today to showcase some of their fab collections! When it came to putting together my Black Friday Wishlist, I was spoiled for choice with their gorgeous range of knitwear and outerwear.

And the good news? There's an amazing 30% off EVERYTHING on Carraig Donn between 9am-12pm this morning and 20% off throughout the rest of the day.

Here are my top picks...
My obsession with grey is still going strong, so this funnel neck jumper instantly caught my eye. It is so soft and cosy and I love the high neck. It comes in blush too and at €27.97, it makes sense to bag the two!

I also loved this cashmere mix sweater by Tandem. The front pockets add a nice bit of detail and it's the perfect piece for throwing on with jeans or faux leather trousers. It's down to €24.97 this morning!

You can't go wrong with a great cape for A/W, and this navy one is an absolute bargain at only €27.97. I'm obsessed with the oversized furry hood!

While having a browse, I also stumbled into the Christmas shop (couldn't resist!). These brown berry pieces are stunning! I'm so excited to get decorating this weekend.

Happy shopping and have a fabulous weekend :)

Wearing and decorating with winter whites.....

We love a touch of winter white here at Lustrous, it has a lovely way of keeping things fresh and bright looking on dark dreary days! From chunky knits to cosy throws and cushions, there are endless ways to introduce this colourway to your winter attire and decor schemes!

 Here are a few of our favourites ideas using this pretty colour palette. 

Lounging in comfy oversized  knits.....

Keeping warm with chunky white gloves and steaming hot choccies....

We love a stylish oversized neutral scarf, so pretty and practical on a cold winters day....

Twinkling tealights or small white candles look delightful grouped together on a long dining table

Snuggle up in a cosy corner, mug in hand with a favourite book to read...nothing beats this on a cold wintery afternoon!

Loving this white on white bedroom scheme....

Wishing you all a lovely cosy weekend:)

Jerros Birr Style A/W 16 Style Event

Hello and happy weekend!

It's been a busy couple of weeks around here, so time to play catch up and work on lots of fresh new content for you all!

We'll start with a round up of our recent Style Event at Jerros, a gorgeous boutique in Co. Offaly where we had a ball hosting a lovely afternoon of fashion and beauty.

The owner Geraldine sources all her pieces from Paris and we had a great time putting together some A/W looks. Here are some snaps from the afternoon.

Some of the happy faces enjoying the day....

Vanessa from Lancome kicked off the event with top tips on how to achieve the perfect smoky eye.

Model Lauren in one of our favourite looks from the day. We love the black pleated skirt styled with a soft pink snuggly jumper. A statement faux fur stole and a sparkly clutch completed the outfit.

Everyone loves a stripe and this gorgeous long shirt is so versatile to wear over casual tops and denim. On colder days the addition of a chunky, knitted cardigan would be fab!

A good quality trench coat is always a fabulous a/w  investment....

The boutique also has a fabulous selection of hats and accessories for the cold winter days ahead! We think it is well worth a visit to Jerros if your are in the Birr area over the next few weeks for a little Christmas shopping.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
