The Capsule Maternity Wardrobe

Finding clothes to wear while pregnant can be tough. Your body is constantly changing shape and size. Throw in the fact that in Ireland we can experience 4 seasons in one day, it is hard knowing what to actually buy. How much you want to spend on maternity clothes comes down to personal preference and budget. Personally, I bought a number of cheap and cheerful items, as I knew I would be sick of looking at them come the end of my pregnancy. With that in mind, I have picked out a number of items which I found useful and helped me through my pregnancy in comfort. Jeans There are…

Thrifty Tuesday – eBay Necklace haul

A few weeks back I posted on The Beautiful Truth Facebook page, about a little bit of bargain hunting I had taken part in on eBay. Aisling from Total Makeup Addict had recently posted about some gorgeous necklaces that she had bought on eBay and with a glass of wine in hand, off I went on a little bit of a shopping spree on ebay.  Aisling really is one of my main enablers. I love Statement jewellery. I have 2 jewellery hangers from Pennys, hanging in the inside of my wardrobe with my copious amount of necklaces hanging from them. When I read Aisling’s post and saw the bargains she had gotten,…

Summer Clothes Haul

This is the first clothes haul I have ever posted. Not because I don’t buy clothes that often,  but rather that I put on so much weight when I was sick I couldn’t bring myself to buy clothes in the size I was. I was a beast!! Thanks to Slimming World, I am now back to within range of the weight I would like to be and to celebrate I went out and shopped the living daylights out of it. Who doesn’t love some retail therapy. I am going to London this week for the Company Magazine blog awards and on holidays to Florida in July, so I wanted clothes…

Printed Trousers – The must have summer look

One of the things I love when on a night out, is checking out all the style. I love pulling ideas from other peoples looks and I am often found asking strangers where they got their clothes from so I can go and source that outfit. One thing was very clear over the weekend, printed trousers are the must have item this summer. Everyone was wearing them. Who doesn’t love being able to throw on a pair of trousers and a top and head out the door. Any excuse to not have to tan the legs! I have shyed away from skinny trousers for a very long time due to…

Summer Wedges

  I am trying lots of new things this week on the blog, and today it is all about shoes. Like most of the female population, I have enough shoes to give Imelda Marcus a run for her money. I have so many I have to switch my winter footwear out for my summer ones, and store all my winter shoes in boxes in the attic. For me summer time is all about wedges. I can’t get enough of them. If you are on the hunt for a new pair of wedges, today’s post might help you with that.   1. First up is Kabby from Kurt Geiger €95.  These are the perfect…

Style Crushing

At 5ft 2inches buying clothes can be hard work . Throw in a rather large boosom and you have a total mare. What I would give to be as styleish as these ladies. They make it look so easy. Hands up I have an absolute style crush on all three. Olivia Palermo has come a long way from her days as the bitchy intern on The Hills. She is now a bone fide celebrity fashion blogger and can often be found in the front row at fashion week. I don’t think I have ever seen her put a foot wrong style wise. Laura Whitmore is flying the flag for the…
