Leather & Faux Fur

Sunday, 20 March 2016

fashion blogger style


It may technically be Spring, but it sure doesn't feel like it. The knitwear and scarves aren't going anywhere just yet so I've been embracing this combination recently. I love wearing this chunky knit from Zara as its thick material keeps me cosy but the colour adds a touch of spring to an outfit. Another piece I've been loving recently is my faux fur stole from Boohoo. I think it adds a touch of sophistication to an outfit, and not to mention how soft and cosy it is!

I added my leather look trousers from Vero Moda and a pair of converse to add a "cool" casual vibe. I love these trousers as they're comfortable on, which was a problem I had trying to find a pair of leather look trousers - a lot of them felt tight and the material clung to me, but this pair is quite stretchy. Although, in saying that, they are quite loose on me which you can see. I'm finding it very hard to get jeans to fit me lately - they're either too tight or too loose. I might try River Island's jeans because I've heard nothing but good things about them or else I might pick up another pair from Topshop - they fit me the best!

What's your favourite style piece at the moment?

12 People To Follow On Snapchat

Friday, 4 March 2016


Snapchat is fast becoming one of my favourite social media platforms, even pipping Instagram to the post! It's no secret that I'm obsessed with Instagram - I post at least once a day and sometimes more! But there's a new love interest in my life and he goes by the name Snapchat. I started recording those chatty style videos last summer but I stopped doing it for a while due to exam stress. But last week I decided to start them back up again because they're so much fun! Although, I do have to admit, the one annoying thing about SC is that it's impossible to find new people to follow. So, seeing as it's #FollowFriday, I thought I'd put together a little long list of my favourites.....

1. laudempmakeup
First up is the beautiful Laura Dempsey. I started following Laura a few weeks ago and I've been hooked on her makeup tutorials ever since. She is seriously talented at makeup and her brows are goals *insert heart eye emoji* I also love seeing her makeup hauls and new products she's trying. She's so bubbly and chatty on her Snapchat and she's a joy to watch!

2. chasingrubychat
Erin is another fellow Irish blogger who has a great beauty and lifestyle blog. I love her beauty reviews on her blog as well as her makeup tutorials and vlogs on her Youtube channel. She also writes about mental health over on her blog and she chats about it on Snapchat every now and then. Mental health is something very close to my heart so I think it's great that she's able to speak about it.

3. penneystoprada
If you read my favourite Instagram accounts blog post, then you'll already know how much I love Emer and her blog. She's always so positive on her Snapchat and watching her snaps always brighten up my day. I also love her bedroom decor and her Penneys hauls always have me feeling spendy!

4. jasminehmakeup
I've followed Jasmine's blog since around the time she first started her blog and I've loved it ever since. I always check her blog religiously to see her latest reviews and beauty recommendations, so I was delighted when she started a Snapchat. She shares her favourite products as well sharing her thoughts on new products she's trialling. Definitely one to follow if you love all things beauty related!

5. shapesndshadows

Amy is the newest member to my Snapchat feed and I'm loving her daily snaps! She chats about her favourite beauty products and often does makeup tutorials. This morning she shared her thoughts so far on the new Penneys skincare range and I have to say it looks amazing! I love her honest, in-depth reviews and her makeup tutorials are incredibly helpful. She's off to Paris soon and I'm dying to see those snaps!

6. toodollymakeup

Jen is also a recent follow of mine and I must've been living under a rock to not know about her Snapchat! Her makeup is always flawless and eye looks are always breathtaking! I wish I had her talent! I also love when she lip sings - it's so funny! Jen has such a fun personality and so I can always count on her Snapchat story to be really fun and enjoyable. Perfect viewing material for if you've had a bad day! 

7. squidgemundo
Kathleen is an amazing travel blogger so she'll definitely pass the travelling bug onto you ;-) Her recent video about New York makes me want to go back so much! She also blogs about beauty and fitness and I love that she has such a variety of different posts on her blog - there's something for everyone! Her Snapchat has been one of my favourites since I first got my account. She's so funny at times and she's always up for a chat. Her positivity is a breath of fresh of air and she always motivates me to workout. Couldn't recommend her account enough! 

8. devotedtopink

Leah is a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger from England. I love her everyday style and her makeup always looks beautiful. She has a gorgeous Instagram feed and her beauty reviews on her blog are always very informative. I love watching her snaps about her everyday life and she's such a nice girl! Definitely worth a follow!

9. makeupbylisa

Lisa is a freelance makeup artist and she posts makeup tutorials as well as sharing her favourite products on Snapchat. I always pick up great tips from Lisa and her tutorials are always easy to follow and recreate. After seeing how she applies her Penneys individual lashes, I've been on the hunt for them myself! If you're looking for makeup tips and inspiration then Lisa is the one to follow! 

10. alison2630
Alison is one of the nicest girls in the blogging community. She's so positive and she's always supporting other bloggers. Her beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog has a bit of everything on it and her posts are always so well written. As for her Snapchat, she chats about general life and she shares her favourite products also. Alison is very consistent on Snapchat - there's lots to view in her story!

11. charlenefmakeup

Charlene is another fantastic makeup artist. She explains the basics of makeup really well and her contour tutorial was really simple and easy to understand. I love seeing what new products she's trying out because she always manages to convince me to pop a few things onto my wish list. I love her but I can't say the same for my bank balance ;-) I also love her dog, Ella - so cute!

12. thebeauttruth
And last but by no means least, is the beautiful Sinéad. Her blog is a favourite of mine and I'm loving her snaps! She's a brilliant beauty blogger and she reviews products on her Snapchat - she's very honest and I can always trust her reviews. She has such a funny and bubbly personality, I can't help but smile when I watch her snaps. She's also pregnant at the moment and she looks incredible!
