MAC Hello Kitty Something About Pink

Hey guys!

The weather is finally starting to get a bit better so I thought I'd go for a fun and bright manicure to break away from all the dark colours I've been wearing for the past few months. I was sorting out my nail polish and came across my limited edition Hello Kitty for MAC 'Something About Pink' polish. How cute is the packaging? Lets just take a moment to appreciate......! The accent glitter is by Barry M called Rose Quartz


Excited for the brighter evenings ahead but boo to the clocks going forward :( Don't forget its this Saturday night at 12pm!

Happy weekend beauties!!

The Dress Bar Cork - Black Tie Dress Hire

Hey guys!

I have a bit of a fancy post for you today! The weekend before St. Patrick's day I attended a black tie gala dinner at The Europe Hotel in Kerry which is a 5 star hotel over the Killarney lakes. The hotel itself was absolutely gorgeous and the views were stunning. The perfect spot for a glamorous night away.

Of course a few weeks beforehand I had the dilemma of whether to buy a dress or rent one. I did find some really nice dresses online but I couldn't justify spending that much on a dress I was only ever going to wear once, I'll make that exception for my wedding dress!;)

The Dress Bar in Cork had come highly recommended to me so one Saturday I decided to pop in and take a look. The selection of dresses was fantastic and of course there were two that I couldn't decide between. In the end I choose a red lace full length gown with a satin diamonté sash, I was in love the minute I put it on. It was so comfortable which surprised me for such a fitted dress and I felt a million dollars in it. 




The fabulous Nuala over at Nuala For Hair gave me a soft messy upstyle to complement the dress. If you're going to a wedding or special event Nuala is your girl! She is absolutely brilliant at what she does and I loved my hair on the day.




I kept my accessories simple with a plain silver heart necklace, a silver Michael Kors Parker Watch and my engagement ring. My clutch bag was from ASOS.





I would definitely recommend The Dress Bar in Penrose Wharf, they have a gorgeous selection of dresses not only for formal events. If you have hired or bought anything from the Dress Bar recently post your pics below, I love seeing all the latest style.

Bye beauties!

Sephora Formula X White Matter & Wham! NOTD

Hey guys!

Just a quick nail of the day for you today. I was in the mood for something fresh and clean so I went for white base with a white glitter confetti topper. The glitter isn't very noticeable over the white base, you can only see it under a certain light which is what I was going for. I used White Matter and Wham! both from the Sephora Formula X collection. I have The Twenty Two mini set which was released when Formula X was launching but I don't think they sell it anymore which is a shame, it's a great set! 

It kind of looks like a mini snow fall on your nails up close :)
If you want to see more swatches from this set or some nail art using the Formula X colours let me know!

Bye beauties!
