The weekend has finally arrived! It’s certainly been a busy one between events, birthday’s and a great catch up with my good friend Ruth from Willow Lane. I was recently at the launch of the new KIKO store in Belfast and it was absolutely amazing! If you’re not familiar with the brand it is Italian based and their products are not only incredible but purse friendly! I’ll be featuring them on my blog next week so keep an eye out. So… this week on my Instagram it has been a firm mixture of style, beauty and travel shots. I’ve been featuring lots of my Spanish looks, my ColourPop collection and a colourful photo diary from my recent holiday.
It has been a while since I wore a midi dress like this one. For a few years it just didn’t suit me as I had insecurities with my weight. Not that it was a big issue but it made the dress emphasise my problem areas. Over the past few months my weight has changed and I thought the dress was perfect for my holiday in Spain. It may mainly consist of dark shades but it is such a cool style to wear in the heat. As it’s a pretty dramatic piece I opted for minimal accessories along with my hair and makeup. The purple shades running throughout the dress are absolutely beautiful, they really popped against the sunshine.
Even though I’m glad to see the end of Summer, I have a few more posts from Spain that I need to feature. I feel like I’m under pressure to get them out before they become dated and aren’t relevant to the current season. So what I’m trying to say is expect a lot of summer style posts in the next two weeks! I can’t wait to get back to the cold crisp days, dark nights and good old Irish dinners. The return of the Sunday dinner will be welcomed with open arms. I’ve a few exciting weeks coming up, starting with the highly anticipated launch of the new KIKO store in Belfast. I cannot wait to get a good look at all of the gorgeous products, it’s one of my favourite brands.
It’s safe to say that the holiday blues have well and truly kicked in. I miss the sun, sea and sangria! The weather here in Ireland is HORRIBLE and it’s not helping with my mood. Although saying that I do love Autumn, I’d rather fast forward to it and skip the end of ‘Summer’. I’ve an exciting event coming up as the new KIKO store opens on Wednesday 31st August. I absolutely love the brand and picked up a few products when I was in Spain. I’m excited to get a private run through of the store and products, need new looks for Autumn. I’ll be sure to blog and Instagram the launch so stay tuned!
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!
