A short and sweet post for today as I’m heading off to Spain for some adventures in the sun. I’m beyond excited for this trip as a well deserved break is needed! I love when you first get off the plane and the heat hits you in the face. Plenty of sun, sea and sangria will be the main theme on my Instagram for the week. I’m hoping to fit in a little shopping while I’m there and indulge in a few road trips so stay tuned!
Last weekend I spent a few days in my beloved Kerry for the christening of my handsome nephew and Godson. It was a great day celebrating my little rascal and he was so adorable in his gorgeous christening outfit. We were all dressed in our Sunday best for the big day and I wanted to share my look with all of you today. As I was Godmother I wanted to make an extra special effort for my little chipmunk. You couldn’t half spot the city girls with me and my two nieces, no shortage of makeup there! Haha.
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 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.
