Black Friday

Black Friday: What you need to know

November 19, 2019

Hi guys,

Welcome back to the blog! I hope you are all well. I am starting to feel very Christmassy and I ordered my tree for the apartment this week! With Christmas around the corner, the present buying has also started. As many of you may know, Black Friday is next week- the 29th of November. In this blog post, I am going to let you know the key dates so that you are prepared and can plan your wish lists .

All next week, I will be updating the blog with all the best codes, deals and my top picks so be sure to come back if you want to hear about the best deals!

Key Dates 

So what days are the best days to shop? Read below for the key dates.

Monday 25th November:  A few sales may start on Monday. However, the discounts will most likely improve throughout the week so I wouldn’t shop today.

Tuesday 26th November: More sales will go live. This will usually be the retailer’s discount for the week so if you see something you like then I would suggest buying it now. I will have a list of all the codes that go live on Tuesday so check back here for that!

Wednesday 27th November: Most sales will have launched by Wednesday. This is probably the best day to shop Black Friday to ensure you get the best deals and the right sizes.

Thursday 28th November: The rest of the Black Friday online sales will usually launch.

Friday 29rd November: This is actual Black Friday! Although many people think this is the best day to shop, most of the sales will already have gone live by this point. A lot of people will have shopped online at this stage however stores will be busy!

Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December: A very busy weekend for physical stores. However, most online sales will have been live for a number of days at this point.

Monday 2nd December: This is Cyber Monday! Some retailers may further their discount however if you have your eye on something it may be gone already. Most retailers will continue the discount they had throughout the week.

What discounts can we expect?

A number of my favourite retailers will offer discounts throughout the week. Last year, Asos , & Other Stories, H&M and River Island offered 20% off everything. Brands such as Mango and Nike offered 30% off selected items. Nasty Gal offered 50% off site wide.

There are also great offers to be had on beauty. Last year, Beauty Bay and Cloud 10 offered up to 30% off everything. Cult Beauty offered up to 40% off everything. These are great discounts as usually the beauty retailers don’t offer this discount throughout the year.

Irish retailers such as Brown Thomas and Arnotts offered 20% off almost everything. Luna by Lisa offered 30% off everything and SoSu by Sj offered 20% off almost everything.

I hope this has helped you plan your Black Friday shopping! I am really looking forward to it myself to get some great deals.

Love or Loathe: Square Toes

August 21, 2019

Hi guys,

Today, on the blog I am discussing the trend that is all over Instagram lately: square toe shoes. This trend started with Bottega Veneta (the trend investment brand this season). When I originally saw their square toe shoes, I can’t lie I wasn’t sure. However, they are really growing on me and after seeing them styled by some of my favourite influencers I am sold! I also adore the new Bottega Veneta clutch bags but that’s for another blog post! See my ultimate girl crush Rosie Huntington-Whiteley style them below:

Are you sold on the style yet? If not see more inspiration images below:

Trend Alert: Corduroy

August 19, 2019

Hi guys,

Today I am back with a trend that we will see a lot this AW/19 which is corduroy. The 70s is making a comeback and corduroy has a big part to play in this. I think corduroy is a slightly marmite trend as it can seem old fashioned to people. However, if done right I think it can look really cool.

Corduroy looks particualrly well in tailoring and I love a corduroy blazer. See how I have styled two different corduroy blazers below. There are also a lot of corduroy jumpsuits coming in this season. Jumpsuits are such a good piece to have in your wardrobe as they are comfortable and are easy to put on in the morning. You can look put together with minimal effort. My favourite piece from this edit is this & Other Stories jumpsuit. I think it is such a gorgeous piece!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Is this a trend you will be investing in this Autumn? Let me know if you do 🙂

Electric Picnic Edit

August 13, 2019

Hi guys,

Welcome back to the blog. I hope you are all well 🙂

Today, I have done an edit of pieces to wear to Electric Picnic. I love dressing for festivals! Festivals are a time to take risks and have fun with your outfits. I have included some fun pieces in the edit to experiment with like this fab skirt!

As it is Ireland and the weather may not cooperate, I have included some pieces to help you survive the weekend including some cosy jumpers (love this one!) and wellies. I also love the idea of tying a scarf around your hair to make day 3 hair look nice! Fun accessories are a great way of adding to outfits that you have already. I really like this necklace and this belt is very like my Chanel one.

Loving Lemon

August 3, 2019

Hi guys,

In Japan, I wore the two piece pictured below and you guys seemed to love it on Instagram. I loved it too- particularly the colour and the pearl straps on the top.

Yellow is one of the colours of the season and it is a colour that I love to wear so I decided to do a blog post on all things yellow! Yellow is a great colour on many skin tones and it can be an instant mood lifter to wear something bright!

Cute Cardigans

July 31, 2019

Hi guys,

This week I wore a pink cardigan which I loved and you guys seemed to love it too! It is now sold out but so many of you were asking me about it so I decided to do a blog post including all my favourite cardigans online at the moment.

The cardigan I wore this week. It is still available in white here.

Cardigans are very on trend at the moment and a great transitional piece to add to your wardrobe. They are perfect for layering as the weather starts to turn and the best thing is they are so comfortable!

Below are some ways that you could style a cardigan as we move into Autumn:

I hope you find something you like below and have a great Bank Holiday weekend.
