Shiny Moments...

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend and got to enjoy some lovely sunshine like we did! It's hard to believe its the last week of March - not too long now until the Easter break :) 

Here are some of our recent Shiny Moments....


We had a fabulous night away in the Seafield Hotel and Spa in Ballymoney near Gorey Co. Wexford and it was absolutely gorgeous there.We had the Oh So Ocea beautiful package and both enjoyed a relaxing hot stone massage followed by a facial and foot massage :)


In my happy place...beside the sea :)


I live in my jeans, so as soon as I tried on Laura's POCOs I just had to get a pair myself! These are The Slimmers in the short leg and they are just perfect! I may not stop at one pair either! Laura now has three :)



We were invited to a beautiful Ladurée afternoon tea in Arnotts on Saturday ahead of Mother's Day.


The cakes were to die for and we were totally spoilt for the afternoon! 


More sweet treats on Sunday at the Marker Hotel. If you haven't tried their famous cronuts yet....you're missing out. Simply DIVINE! :) Laura


Have a fabulous week and enjoy the lovely longer evenings :)

The Weekend Edit

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone...and hello long weekend!

Our starting point for this Weekend Edit had to be green, of course! We're also embracing all things pastel, influenced by the much milder weather we seem to be experiencing of late. Could Spring finally be here to stay...let's hope so!


We love the minty fresh mood of this gorgeous Zara top teamed with off white skinny jeans from Topshop. The Zara coat is also high on Laura's payday wishlist, having fallen head over heels for it in-store last week. Cute blush flats from Dune paired with a buttery beige (swoon) Chloe Faye bag, finish off this pastel pretty look.

There you have it, our take on a stylish green, white and gold ensemble for the day that's in it!

Wear your colours with pride and have a fabulous St. Patrick's weekend!

Shiny Moments....

Happy Monday!
Hope everyone had a good weekend, its a lovely mild start to the week here and we hope it continues up to St Patrick's day on Friday!

 Here are a few of our recent Shiny Moments....


A quick work trip to Birmingham started the week off on a good note. Look at those candy coloured clouds :)


A surprise package from the lovely Amber at Primp and Style.....this grey suede and leather bag is divine and just perfect for S/S outfits.


A lovely bunch of daffodils from a good friend, flowers always guarantee to brighten the day....


Eyeing up all the jeans at the new POCO by Pippa pop-up store in Dundrum! I'm wearing The Slimmers here and I will definitely be investing in another few pairs, as they are only fab!! 



We had a lovely night at the school musical, watching our youngest perform in the show Anything Goes :) 

I wore this new wrap floral knit from Oasis with my faux leather skinnies from Vera Moda. Anne



Ending the week on a good note, with a fantastic yoga workshop on Saturday with moonsyoga at Oslo Health

We hope you all have a lovely week :)

Flower Power....

The floral trend is huge this spring, in fact it never really goes out of fashion and I for one love to see the new prints appear in store:)

 It lifts the spirits in a big way after a winter of wearing heavy woollen knits! 

These are some of my favourite floral picks....


You can't go wrong with a simple dress and this pretty spring bouquet wrap dress from Oasis fits the bill to perfection!


I also purchased this wrap lotus print top as it's a great fit, and I thought it would be lovely with culottes for a spring event or dressed down with daytime denims for a casual look.


Absolutely love this statement embroidered jacket from Zara - it would also look fab with leather skinnies and black strappy sandals.


This gorgeous sateen floral bomber jacket is on sale at Littlewoods Ireland at the moment for €32.50 A handy little number to give your wardrobe a quick spring lift!




Florals are also great for accessorising  spring/summer outfits and the colours are just beautiful in this bag from  River island.


Here is a little extra flower power to wish you all a very happy international Women's day!

Take Care:)

The Weekend Edit...

Happy Friday everyone! Is it just us, or was that week extra long? We're so looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend, with zero plans!

We've taken inspiration from Pinterest for today's Weekend Edit, recreating a gorgeous street style look that caught our attention recently...



Although it's not bare leg weather just yet, this denim midi skirt is a Spring wardrobe essential. We love the layered look of the jumper with the blue shirt - simple but so chic! Sleek black accessories complete the look, along with a metallic clutch to add a little sparkle. Some of you will remember this bag from a few weeks ago - a sale bargain from Whistles that we featured with this outfit. Aside from the fact we love it so much, we've styled it up again to just how versatile it is!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Casual spring footwear....

Happy March! Hopefully now that its officially spring-time, the weather will improve and we can wear some nice casual footwear instead of our heavy winter boots and socks! 

Here are a few new styles I'm loving this season...




Two great casual styles above new in from Zara ... perfect worn with jeans, leather skirts or leisure wear for that effortless downtime look:)


Gorgeous suede pink loafers to add a little spring colour to your attire from H&M for €44.99



I love these metallic punch hole trainers from M&S, great value
 for everyday wear with your favourite denims, a steal at €27.99


These luxe leather loafers from Topshop would look fab paired with tailored cropped trousers and a colourful spring knit or shirt!

Hope you are all having a good week:)
