The past few days have been crazy busy as I was in my beloved Kerry for my nephew’s Christening. We were all down for a couple of days and for the most part I was unfortunately sick. It’s just my luck as I didn’t get to enjoy nights out, all I wanted to do was sleep it off. The Christening day however was such a lovely celebration. I’m his Godmother and I was so excited to be a part of his big day. He was so adorable dressed in his little outfit and he was lapping up all of the attention. I can’t wait to see him next week in Spain in his little swimwear and splashing in the pool.
Can you tell I’m obsessed with this house and the pretty floral backdrop?! If I could build my dream home, this would be it. I’m a sucker for beautiful houses, incredible interior and vibrant gardens. I’m down in Kerry at the moment and I couldn’t resist shooting here. The weather hasn’t been too bad, it’s quite warm so I opted for something light with a lot of movement and a little drama. The netural tones are firm favourites for this typical Irish weather (we can get four seasons in one day) and I loved the combination of details. I was actually ill when I was shooting this and it was a disaster trying to look and smile for the camera. My eyes were watering so bad and I felt horrendous so if I look drunk in any of the photos you’ll know what the craic is!
I can still remember the first encounter I had with luxury jewellery brand, Pandora. We were just coming into the Summer month’s when I was invited to brunch for a private viewing of their Rose Gold collection. Fast forward two years and I’m still head over heals in love with the pieces now as I was then. My Pandora collection is growing by the day and I’m excited to welcome this majestic ‘Hearts of Pandora’ necklace to the family. I have a love for hollow circle jewellery and this little beauty is one of a kind. It features a detailed print of the Pandora logo on the back which can be worn as a second option. I often wear it as a stand alone piece or mix it with various necklaces that I have. For today I decided to keep all jewellery dedicated to Pandora in order to share the entire collection with all of you.
I’m kick starting this week on such a high! I feel extremely humble to have received such heartwarming responses after my Chronic Anxiety post. I never in a million years thought I would have had so many incredible people contact me so I just want to say thank you. I’ve also got my little chipmunk (my nephew) visiting for the week so I’m absolutely thrilled. He has such an adorable personality and he’s getting bigger by the day. I’m waiting for him to waken up so we can watch Miffy and get some cuddles.
During the week I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of a very special delivery. I treated myself to my first ever Self Portrait piece. I’ve always adored the brand as cutwork styles are my favourite. I just think they add such a unique edge to a look and the quality is excellent. I have shared a sneak preview but in the coming week’s I’ll share the entire look in a feature.
I have spent most of this week waiting *patiently* for parcels to arrive. I’m still waiting for the rest of my IT Cosmetics to arrive (thanks for that Beautylish). On Wednesday the mothership of all things beauty was posted in the form of Sephora. I decided to go ahead and order the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. There has been much controversy surrounding the eyeshadow pallette but thankfully my order did not disappoint! The pigmentation, texture and quality are Becca worthy and I’m madly in love. To say it’s majestic is an understatement, the packaging is very ‘Instagram appropriate’ and the colours certainly pop.
