Havaianas Flip Flops

June 1, 2017

Hi there,

I hope you are all having a good week.

Last Saturday I took part in such a fun shoot with Havaianas to promote their new pop-up shop in Arnotts. Although it was downpouring outside, it was summer inside for us on this shoot and all of these clothes got me so excited for the summer months ahead.

I was fresh off the plane for Marseille so in the perfect mood for a flip flop shoot. I had a little chat on Snapchat (lou1409) last night about all the travels I have coming up, so these flip flops will definitely be packed. I’m off to Beneisland next week with Benefit Cosmetics, then to Venice at the weekend and finishing up in London next week. The travelling just doesn’t stop this year – and I’m loving every second of every adventure I’ve been on (and hopefully plenty more to come!)

Below are the images we shot on the day, showing 6 different pairs of Havaianas, all priced between €17.90 to €30. They also have a Beaded/ Embellished range in store which is priced from €40 to €130. To celebrate the opening of the pop-up shop there is a cool offer in store whereby if you buy 2 pairs of Havaianas, you get a free lilo (in the shape of a GIANT FLIPFLOP!!!) You can also personalise your Havaianas  with charms, the charms start from €2. My favourite thing about these flip-flips is how unbelievably comfortable they are. Have you ever had an uncomfortable pair of flip-flops? That cuts between your toes and makes your feet feel heavy – is there anything worse in the world? I think not!

Thank you to the amazing team that helped put this shoot together on the day – Claudia styling, Sue doing hair and make-up and Aaron behind the camera. Keep an eye out for the photos in U magazine that will be hitting shelves on June 7th 🙂

Have a great evening guys (ALMOST THE WEEKEND!!!)

SHOPPING: Summer Holiday Dresses you NEED

May 31, 2017

Hey guys,

I’ve been getting lots of questions lately about holiday shopping. Holiday shopping is my favourite kind of shopping and especially when it comes to dresses. They are so easy and wearable in hot weather, so I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite dresses online at the moment. All are very reasonably priced, and sooo cute! I may have done some damage in the creation of this post haha!

Happy shopping,

Shopping Post: Wedding Guest Dresses

May 22, 2017

Hi guys,

I hope you all had a great weekend. One question I am getting a LOT lately is have I seen any nice dresses for weddings and/or for brides for their hen parties. It must be that time of the year 🙂

I put together a post with some of my favourite dresses online at the moment. Lots of pastels, pleats and florals.

Hopefully this will help some of you, or give you some inspiration at the very least,

Catching up

May 18, 2017

Hey guys,

First of all let me start off by apologising for not posting in SO LONG! It’s been almost a month. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve left it so long. I’m gonna use Cooper, work and life in general as my excuse this time. But I promise I won’t leave it so long again. I did do two new YouTube videos in my absence here, have you seen them? (here and here)

Speaking of Cooper, since I wrote my last blog post I have gained a puppy with my housemate Chloe. We are now dog-moms 🙂 and loving every second (bar those sleepless nights where he barked all night long!). He’s slowly getting the hang of peeing outside, staying in the crate at night and is just the best company (he’s cuddled up on my lap as I write this!)

In other news, I had been very lax about making summer plans this year. Partly due to the fact that I just love summer in Ireland and also because my holiday days in work are running out very quickly, but I have made some plans this week, and it’s shaping up to be a very busy, exciting summer. I’m never usually one to keep anything secret, but until everything is confirmed I’m gonna keep this one to myself. I promise I will share everything on the blog in due course 🙂  Continue Reading…

Back on it!

April 24, 2017

Hi everyone,

After a very indulgent few weeks (between Dubai, Positano, and the Style Awards) it’s time to face the fact that summer is on the way (YAY!) and I need to get back on that healthy band wagon.

For me, I don’t like to call it a diet. I just try and cut out the crap from my diet. If I am really craving something like chocolate I will allow myself a healthier alternative, and the longer I keep up with eating healthy the easier it will get. I read a good saying the other day:

Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going

My Favourite Time of Year

April 24, 2017

Hey guys,

I hope you’re all having a good week, and if you’re not, at least it’s a short 4 day week 🙂

I’m back from Italy and enjoying Springtime in Ireland. As you may have guessed from the title it really is my favourite time of year. The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are blooming and summer is on the horizon!

We always give Ireland a hard time for the weather – but hey it’s got lots more it can bring to the table, namely craic, cherry-blossoms and long, bright evenings. With the arrival of these cherished bright nights, I can’t help but look forward to the summer months ahead. I love summer in Ireland, and cannot wait for those random warm days we get when everyone runs out of work early to grab a glass of cider in the sun. There is no where in the world better than Ireland on days like those 🙂

I’m also excited that it is (almost) time to whip out the summer wardrobe again. I’ve started my summer shopping a little early this year, as you can see 😉 Here I’m wearing a white one shoulder blousegrey faux-suede skirt, a rose-gold chanel-style bag and black aviator sunglasses – all from PrettyLittleThing.

Have a great weekend guys,

Louise x
