Looks, stuff I like

Crisscross

August 29, 2011

Hello lovelies.
Today I wanted to show off some lovely stuff I got myself these last few days!

Firstly – How amazing is this earcuff!!! It is just so beautiful, and Irish made :) It is from Shutterbug, which is a vintage shop, they are simply amazing do check out there facebook page! And very reasonable prices, I got this earcuff for just under 27euro (handmade!)

Secondly - My Silver Factory T-Shirt! I got it in a large so I could cut it up and make a little dress out of it. But for now I have paired it with my Black Milk legbones leggings.

And last but not least my mustache ring! How adorable is that?! I am a huge unusual ring fanatic, and this is perfect for my ever growing collection :) This ring is from a really adorable online jewelery store called Cutie Pie – check them out, everything is just so…cute!

Love!

Last Rays Of Sunshine

August 28, 2011

I’m getting alot more comfortable not wearing heels everyday. I bought the my cons for work and have been wearing them out alot more now, and don’t feel lie such a midget.
I do have issues with my height, I do wish I was taller, but hey what can I do about it, but I finally accept that I am not 5”11 so I just have to deal with the fact I am a petite girl! We all have things we would like to change about our appearance but dwelling on them is useless really…

But apart from that it is a beautiful evening here in Dublin. However the weather has been so all over the place these last few days I feel there won’t be much more sun in the next few weeks.. So making the most out of not wearing a jacket right now.

Dark Lipstick

August 24, 2011

Hey guys! Okay so my friend Caoimhe (check out her blog here) moved to NYC for the summer, and was away for my birthday (boo!) so she got me a really thoughtful present – a challenge – she got me Mac lipstick – Film Noir so I could do a blog post about how to wear such a bold shade of lippy. How cute is she!

So my first thought was, just lipstick and a small bit of mascara, boom – high fashion – But no, it’s just too predictable. Just because you are wearing a really bold lip does not mean you cannot do up your eyes too without looking like a bit of a drag queen! So I thought I would show you guys how I would wear a dark lipstick without being too boring.

I only used one eyeshadow here Its Mac – Golden Gaze

This is actually a bit of a weird eyeshadow. It comes quite grey when you put it on first, but it is really lovely and glittery once you put a few coats on! I just used a blending brush for all over my eyelids and a small rounded brush to put the gold on the inside of my eyes! It’s like using two eyeshadows in one :) I also thought if I did any contouring it would be too much, so if you’re going to go for a dark lip + dark eyes I’d say stay away from any contouring or at least make it very natural!

Hope you guys liked this post!
