New Look – Best of the Sale

New Look is one of those stores that I go through phases of loving and seeing everything in and then seeing absolutely nothing.  This season however, New Look has totally been on my side and the majority of clothes I have purchased for myself have come from New Look.  They currently have up to 70% off and there are some amazing things in the sale that I just have to share with you, some of them I have purchased for myself too.

Black Spot Print Button Front Jumpsuit, £27.99 £14

41985291_1418739834925793_4185272811732833746_n(1)

I recently wore this jumpsuit for my little trip to The Junction (you can read about the trip here) but I received so many compliments on it and noone could believe I only paid £14 for it.  It comes with a matching polka dot belt however I removed it and use my faux Gucci belt from Ros Oir Boutique to cinch in my waist to make it a little more flattering.

Khaki Button Front Tapered Leg Jumpsuit, £24.99 £11

khaki-button-front-tapered-leg-jumpsuit-

This jumpsuit will always be what I wore to Shania Twain.  The day I saw SHANIA TWAIN I wore this jumpsuit.  Such a comfortable outfit and very easy to dress up or down and I don’t know what it is about khaki colour, but when i’m not feeling an outfit I add khaki and it’s instantly better.  Similar with the above jumpsuit it comes with a matching belt however I find that the belts that come with the outfits are never great quality so I swapped out the belt for a leopard print belt, matching bag and heels – all New Look of course.

Tall Pale Blue Paperbag Waist Trousers, £19.99 £8

tall-pale-blue-paperbag-waist-trousers

Okay, yes you may be thinking – tall? Really Amy?  I honestly didn’t realise I was buying tall when I purchased them however, they fit perfectly so it was all meant to be.  They really shouldn’t have fit considering I am not even 5 foot…

Blue Rinse Wash Double Breasted Denim Midi Dress, £25.99 £12

blue-rinse-wash-double-breasted-denim-midi-dress

I am so in love with this dress and I love it paired with these white boots!

Orange Round Buckle Cross Hatch Pinafore Dress, £19.99 £10

orange-round-buckle-cross-hatch-pinafore-dress

Team this cute rust orange pinafore with a polo neck to transition this pinafore into an outfit perfect for Autumn!

Rust Polka Dot Scuba Crop Trousers , £19.99 £10

rust-polka-dot-scuba-crop-trousers

Continuing on with the rust theme, these culottes are perfect for brightening up a Winter wardrobe and will be easily taken into your Spring/Summer wardrobe too as polka dots never go out of style!

Black & White Stripe Duster, £34.99 £10

black-and-white-stripe-duster-jacket

I’m in love with this duster jacket and have ordered this for myself.  Wear it like the model, styled down or dial it up for a night out this duster will become a staple in my wardrobe.  Would be gorgeous worn closed with a skinny belt!  Plus, for £10 it’s such a bargain!

White Spot Print Double Breasted Midi Dress, £29.99 £10

white-spot-print-double-breasted-midi-dress

I’m sorry, but I can’t stop with the polka dots.  I just picture this outfit all glammed up like Julia Roberts, would be gorgeous with a big hat!  In reality I would wear it with vans and hair shoved up in a bun – still cute though!

Mela Cream Lace Trim Tie Neck Blouse, £28 £18

mela-cream-lace-trim-tie-neck-blouse- (1)

You can never have enough white blouses.  They simply go with everything, whether you’ve got trousers, skirts or culottes a white shirt or blouse should be your safety net and I love the detailing on the sleeves.  I’m tempted to buy two…

Black Faux Snakeskin Baker Boy Hat £9.99 £3

Black Prince of Wales Check Baker Boy Hat, £9.99 £3

I do love baker hats however sometimes I feel like Oliver Twist when I wear them, that being said they are too good an offer to pass up!

Have you got any bargains recently?  I’d love to hear!

The Junction, Antrim

I was recently invited down to check out The Junction, Antrim as part of their Connection Club Weekend.  The Junction is an amazing shopping destination situated about 20 miles from Belfast with not only over 30 retailers but an amazing 10 screen Omniplex cinema.  The Connection Club is a promotion that enables you to receive extra discounts, offers and exclusive events.  Think of it as a VIP card that allows you to save a little money while you shop – allowing you to shop more!  You can sign up for the Connection Club here and view what stores are available here.

Of course me being me, I quite literally ran straight to the beauty outlet as it has my name written all over it.  I went in fully confident that I would walk around and have a nosy at all the amazing offers however, as soon as my foot stepped over the threshold I completely lost all ability to think and went from the front to the back up and down the aisles telling staff that ‘this is amazing’ and obsessively congratulating a girl called Mags who keeps the lipsticks looking so neat on doing such a good job.  Mags, I am sorry.

View this quick video of me walking around the store and keep scrolling for a more in depth view of the offers available – perfect for dare I say the C word?  Christmas.

Thank you so much to The Junction and Beauty Outlet who gifted me with a voucher!  If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll see all the goodies I got!

unnamed

As soon as you walk in there’s a fantastic beauty bar area with chairs and glorious light up mirrors surrounded by amazing offers.  A great area to sit and try on makeup!

unnamed (17)unnamed (16)

I first had a rummage around at the foundations and while there is a huge variety o products I did however notice that there are not full shade ranges.  I was able to find my colours very easily and there is still a great range but you may have to sacrifice going a little lighter or darker if you cannot find your shade – but that’s okay, because they have bronzers.  One of my favourite foundations, Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation is available there and you can see my first impression of this foundation on my YouTube here.

unnamed (10)

I think my favourite part about walking around this store had to have been the lipstick section.  Not only was it just so satisfying to look at but the lipsticks were around the £1.99/£2.99 mark.  I mean, my Starbucks order costs more than that.  If you watched my Instagram stories then you’ll know that I got so overwhelmed by the lipstick aisle that I actually only left with two lipsticks and two lips liners.  It is just so unlike me.  I can’t wait to go back and buy more!

unnamed (1)

I felt like I was walking around Willy Wonka’s factory in this store, honestly.  Just look at all those brushes and beauty blenders?  I was in total heaven and all for a fraction of the price that you would pay in places like Boots and Superdrug.  I love getting things like these as little presents, if you were starting to think of mini gifts for *whispers* Christmas then these are all perfect!

unnamed (18)

Again, on the gift train – whether it’s a gift for yourself of you are in need of a present for someone these are amazing and come in the cutest packaging.  W7 were one of the main brands I seen in the beauty outlet and I have used some things from them before and they are actually pretty good, amazing for the price!  How amazing is this brush set below?

In addition to makeup and accessories they also have a great range of skincare, bath and body and fragrances so there really is something for everyone!  So looking forward to going back to the store and The Junction in general as all staff seem so friendly and The Junction is an amazing place to walk around.

Primark AW18

Oh where do I start when it comes  to Primark?  It is honestly one of my favourite stores and for those of you who are reading from Northern Ireland, you’ll know of the devastation that has fallen upon our city of Belfast and our Primark store.

On Tuesday 28th August, the Bank Buildings which housed our beloved Primark went up in flames engulfing the entire building.  After the panic and we knew that everyone that was in the building was safe, the fear started to settle in – where were we going to shop?  I shop in Primark – honestly? – at least once a week.  Where was I going to get my tights?  My pajamas?  My cute homeware?  My last minute outfits for events?!  Then I realised… there are plenty of other Primark stores in Northern Ireland.  Yes, yes they may not be as good as the one in Belfast city centre however, they are still Primark!  My Instagram followers were all going through the same thing and having the same thoughts and so I decided to do something about it.

Retail is already struggling at the minute especially on our High Street, from House of Fraser to Toys r Us to the likes of JJB Sports.  Just after the fire in Belfast I was gifted with a voucher from Primark and I decided to use it to show my Instagram followers that all is not lost!  I took myself off on a bus to a nearby Primark in the Abbey Centre, Newtownabbey and here you can see all my favourite things in the store right now.  You can search for your closest store here.

COATSunnamed (1)

This is one of those coats, up there with the likes of the camel coat that will go with absolutely anything and everything in your wardrobe.  It will become a staple in your wardrobe and the material feels great, a steal for only £30!

unnamed (19)

I think  this is my favourite coat I have ever seen.  An absolute beauty, I can’t wait to go back as they didn’t have my size when I was in the store.  It’s times like these when I wish Primark was available to shop online.  This pattern is all over the stores at the minute and what better way to wear the trends than with a statement coat?  I can picture this with a fantastic red bag and beret, a beautiful cream cashmere jumper and jeans.  Again, at only £30 this coat is an Autumn/Winter must have!

unnamed (11)

This coat makes me positively giddy.  Somewhere in between a subtle coat and a statement coat this is perfect for those of you who can’t decide.  This coat is bang on trend and these styles of coats sit so well and are flattering on the body.  Another bargain coat at £30!

JACKETS

unnamed (12)

These jackets are so cute and fluffy, a great way to add an edge to your outfit.  Corduroy has made a comeback this season and this jacket would be perfect for injecting a little into your wardrobe.  Shorted, cropped style jackets are perfect for more petite ladies too as they suit a smaller frame!

unnamed (13)

If you prefer a pop of colour then think pink jacket will be more up your street.  Both colours are beautiful however, the brown would be easier styled if your wardrobe has more muted tones but for those who aren’t afraid to dial it up with colour this jacket will be perfect for you.  The collar and inside are so soft that it makes you feel like you’re wearing a cloud!

unnamed (10)

I tried this jacket on and immediately wished I was standing near a motorcycle, wearing aviators and my hair in a messy bun.  Again, the inside is insanely soft which is amazing considering the price.  This is another one of those jackets that you could wear with anything, I am definitely going back for this jacket.  I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I seen it.

ACCESSORIES

unnamed

There’s nothing that a great tote can’t fix.  If I am unsure about an outfit or my outfit seems too loud then I’ll make it more neutral and dial it up with a tote bag.  These totes are perfect for this, I have my eye on the leopard print tote considering animal print is the trend of the year!  The red bag would be perfect with the coat from earlier… oh, I’ve sold it to myself.

unnamed (15)

Another cute little bag, I am in love with the details on the bag.  Details on bags like these really make an £8 bag look far more expensive.  A great size bag perfect for day or night!

unnamed (5)

More on the leopard print, I’m sorry I just can’t get enough of it.

unnamed (9)

I talked about this hat on my stories, I completely forgot to go back for it!  I can’t wait to go back for it as not only am I a lover on hats, but the size of it was perfect.  Some hats are just too big but this one was just right!  There’s nothing like the regret of the things you don’t buy…

CLOTHING

Primark is not only great for creating outfits but also for taking tops and skirts and using them to update clothes you already have.  This leather skirt for example, perfect with tights, boots and a polo neck for this time of year!  Primark’s clothes are so versatile that they really would suit everyone and that makes them one of our high streets greatest stores.

With my gift card I puchased a trouser and blazer set with a top and I wore it to an event recently and I received so many messages about it – people asking was it actually Primark!  See below for my outfit!

Belfast Fashion Week Launch AW18

UZMa8Pbw

Here we are again to my favourite time of the year, Autumn is fast approaching and as are the new clothes coming in to our favourite stores – but hold on!  What to buy?  Oh no, here we go again, don’t know what to wear?  Not sure what’s ‘trendy‘ this season?  Look no further because I recently attended the Belfast Fashion Week Launch for Autumn Winter 2018 and oh my, there are some beautiful clothes coming your way this year!

Hosted by our ever fabulous Cathy Martin, PR Queen and Fashion Goddess in the Fitzwilliam Hotel, the perfect setting for an array of such beautiful clothes.

What I Wore

Before you see the amazing trends that befell us let’s look at what I wore!

New Look Mustard Check Cropped Trousers, £19.99

mustard-check-cropped-trousers

I am so in love with these trousers!  They are so comfortable and not an annoying zip in sight and match a lot more versatile than I thought.  They go with so many things and are easily dressed up or dressed down for a more casual look.

New Look Mustard Ribbed Roll Neck Top, £8.99

mustard-ribbed-roll-neck-topThese polo necks are perfect for wearing underneath large coats or chunky knits as they are nice and thin, so you don’t roast alive underneath.  They come in a variety of colours and at such a great price, you’re going to want to pick up a few.

New Look Mustard Single Breasted Formal Coat, £34.99

mustard-single-breasted-formal-coat-

I’ll be the first to admit I might have went overboard with the mustard and the New Look shopping.  It’s all just so nice, have you been in recently? Their Autumn/Winter selection is outstanding, I can’t wait to go back and get the rest that I mentally put in my favourites.

TRENDS

Animalistic

We have gone wild for animal print – see what I did there?  So many designers this season have made a bid for the fabulous animal print and it is everywhere.  If you aren’t someone who wants to fully immerse themselves in this trend you can add a small pop in your accessories with a fabulous bag or boots to transform yourself, ready for Autumn.

I’ve said it before in my Leopard Print post but it makes me so happy to see so many women and men embracing this trend and Belfast Fashion Week’s launch was no different.

Let your outfits roar with this trend this season.

Clash Is The New Match

Leading on from Animal Print sees a trend that I have always been a little scared to try and pull off myself but I have recently learned that if you wear anything with confidence it will look unbelievable.  You wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you.  Something to remember for this fantastic clash of prints.  If anything, when you can’t decide what to wear – clash them!

Tl1Gv8_w

Here Cathy has shown us a dress that allows feminine florals to meet sassy stripes while below these stunning floral prints are a sure way to turn heads this season.  After all, floral in spring?  Groundbreaking.

Alas, we have arrived at my favourite trend allowing me to live out my Cher Horowitz, Clueless fantasy in tasteful checked print.  You must be thinking, how the hell can I wear that print?  The most fashionable way, as we have said already, is to embrace the Mix and Match.

iur49RCg

This fabulous ensemble puts me in mind of Balenciaga and I cannot wait to get my hands on all of it.  I have my eye on this Topshop, Check Midi Skirt, it will be coming home with me.

i6bjDzdw

Ellen looks unbelievable in the outfit, definitely one of my favourite looks from the entire morning and I am pleased to say I already own the suit from the look.  Now I just have to collect the rest!  I must say at this point, the makeup by Oonagh Bomanand her team was just stunning.  There is nothing nicer than a bold, statement lip and this lip pulls the red out of the suit to perfectly compliment this outfit.

Bold & Bright

This selection of outfits actually has me salivating.  I have always been a huge fan of colour and I am not one for hiding away from brights, as you can see from my outfit for the Launch.  These power suits and coats speak to me on another level.

x0OqEPTg

I am head over heels at the clothing seen at BFW Launch and I am certainly going to be out of pocket investing in all these fantastic pieces.  What are your favourite trends this season or what are you most looking forward to wearing?  I’d love to hear!

West Coast Cooler Fashion Week Starts Friday 19th October and runs to Sunday 21st October.  If you like what you see you can find more information on the shoes and purchase tickets HERE

AW18 – Boots Wishlist

Every year I become a little obsessed with buying boots because I love nothing
more than slipping on a pair of jeans, a pair of beautiful yet comfy boots and
sliding on into Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s basic, and I LIKE IT.
There is something about buying your Autumn/Winter boots and feeling the
need for a night by the fire and a hot cup of chocolate.

Or in my case, wine.
Always wine.

I always find it quite hard to pick just the perfect boot, so if any of you have the
same problem I thought I would make it a little easier and so I have put together
my favourite boots from the shops this season making it easier for you to walk in
to Autumn looking fabulous.

Flat Boots

New Look Wide Fit Yellow Block Heel Ankle Boots, £25.99

wide-fit-yellow-block-heel-ankle-boots

Inject a pop of colour into your wardrobe this Autumn/Winter with a coloured boot, I love these yellow boots and they will go with my entire wardrobe this year as I bought everything yellow.

Monki Wine Red Chelsea Ankle Boots, £40

app002prod

I am immediately attracted to high shine boots but unfortunately I clearly drag my feet when I walk because I ruin every boot I get.  I am obsessed with the colour of these shoes as they will go with everything and make a change from the regular black boot.  Monki is a fantastic brand and the quality of their products is outstanding.

Missguided White Three Buckle Pointer Boots, £35

TS42B16PNAT_M_1

Actually obsessed with these, they were in my dreams last night.  I was wearing them and I mean, I looked good.  In fact, yep – I just bought them.  Animal print boots are a great way to inject the trend into your everyday wardrobe without feeling like you are dressed like Kat Slater.

Shop Here

Topshop Brandy Ankle Boots, £36

I can’t decide between the colours, but here I am again with the patent ankle boots.  I love the high shine effect!  Topshop are one of my favourite places for boots as I find them the comfiest to wear all day.  They look similar to the Gianvito Rossi style boots but for a fraction of the price!

Top 5 Blushers

The beauty world has become so obsessed with highlighters and bronzers that
we have forgotten about one very important part of our makeup routine – the
blush. I have always loved blush and if I am honest, probably have loved it a little
too much in the past. When I was 15 I definitely had that Aunt Sally look nailed.
Fast-forward a few years and a practice in application I finally see what the fuss
was all about.

Before I begin listing my favourite blushers let’s talk about what it does for your
face. Blusher has the power to actually brighten and lift your face and is the
perfect finish to create a beautiful makeup look. Blusher is classy and enhances a
real, natural face shape as opposed to ‘look at my natural sunken in cheekbones’
a la Kim K. As nice as that look can be, when done right, there’s something about
a blush that makes all the difference.

When I look for blushers I tend to buy fairly versatile shades that suit a variety of
skin tones so that I can keep them in my kit to suit everyone. Whatever your
preference be it matte or shimmery, there is always something out there to suit
you.

MAC ‘Melba’ Powder Blush, £19.50

31SzsTco9qL

I have always loved MAC’s blushers as their formula is perfectly creamy and they have an amazing variety of shades.  My most used shade is by far Melba and as it is a beautiful soft coral peach shade this blusher beautifully compliments a huge variety of skin tones.  It is super pigmented so just use a little each time you are using it.  With no shimmer it’s great for all skin types and ages and is a staple in my Make Up Kit giving a the skin a perfect glow.

Shop Here

NARS Blush ‘Orgasm’, £24

0607845040132 (1)

This blusher shouldn’t need any introduction as if you are familiar with blushes at all, you should have tried this one.  If you haven’t, what are you doing?  You owe it to yourself to try the blush that permanently tops the list as one of the best blushers on the market.  An iconic blusher that gives natural, healthy looking colour without looking too heavy and again, you only need a light application to give a beautiful colour.

Shop Here

Milani Baked Blush ‘Luminoso’, £10

MMBL-06_grande

These blushers are unreal and for £10 they are such a good quality!  It’s very hard to pick just one shade that I like from this range as I use them all and love them all.  As I tend to go for more coral colours with blush I tend to use ‘Luminoso’ the most.  Baked on Italian terracotta the powder is so finely milled that it delivers a smooth and silky application.

Shop Here

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic ‘Ecstasy’, £30

zb_p

Charlotte’s range of blushers are my absolute favourite.  They scream luxury and everyone needs a little luxury in their make up bag!  Currently there are 6 powder shades to choose from and again, sorry I like the coral shades so my favourite is the shade ‘Ecstasy’ but there are colours to suit everyone.  I love having a glow from my blusher and with Light Flex Technology these blushers capture and reflect light again leaving your skin with a beautiful soft sheen.

Shop Here

Bare Minerals Gen Nude Powder Blush ‘Pretty In Pink’, £22

FE6465EA63086F15F787FDA1107247B2_3107648_7

Seriously blendable and buildable blushers this range from Bare Minerals is a staple in my own routine and in my makeup kit.  I’ve collected a few shades since they have launched however, I use ‘Pretty In Pink’ most often, a beautiful subtle pink shade and ‘Bellini Brunch’ which is a beautiful peach shade.  The formula is so creamy and glides on to the skin effortlessly without catching and giving the skin texture giving the skin a soft focus effect.

What blushers do you like, or do you even use blusher at all?  I would love to hear your favourites.

EDŌ Restaurant, Belfast

I am not a food blogger and nor do I know an awful lot about the ins and outs of writing about food.  Unless we are watching Masterchef or The Great British Bake Off then I am an expert. That being said I recently ate in a restaurant that actually made me utter the words ‘Oh my God’ very audibly for the next table to hear.  Meg Ryan style.

EDŌ Restaurant, (pronounced Aye-Doh, Latin For ‘I Eat’) in Belfast is one of the nicest restaurants I have ever set foot in.  Walk through the doors and you are immediately greeted with not only pleasant smiles and a friendly welcome but a smell of food overtakes the sense, transporting you to a drooling state.  My eyes darted all around the restaurant from the bar as you enter with bottles piled high, the fantastic seating arrangements and brilliant décor.

Jonny Elliot, Head Chef and Owner brings you the best ingredients and extensive knowledge having worked with some of the best chef in the world like Gordon Ramsey and Gary Rhodes.  Jonny knows his flavours and has a Bertha Oven in the kitchen which allows the chefs to cook with apple and pear wood giving their food a smokey flavour.  The best thing about this restaurant is that the menu really does appeal to everyone, whether you are a starter and a main dish kind of person or a tapas style sharing theme is more your thing, Edo has got you.

We decided to try a few dishes while there as everything on the menu sounded unbelievable and we couldn’t decide.

Pimientos de Padron, £5

I looked at this on the menu and thought ‘nahh’ but I was guaranteed that they were lovely and so, I had to try them.  Oh my days, I honestly don’t know what was done to them but the peppers melted in my mouth and were unbelievably tasty.  With a little salt and I am assuming some olive oil these were the perfect dish to have while deciding what other dishes to have.

Jamon Iberico (Bellota), £10

snapseed

A type of cured ham produced in Spain and Portugal that is just quite simply delicious. You get so many slices, we were full at the end of this dish… obviously that didn’t stop us! Also, we went straight in on this before I could get a photo, it looked too good to wait.

Ham Croquettes, £4

Yes, you read that right.  I haven’t stopped thinking about these for the last 3 weeks.  I actually got croquettes in another restaurant and they were nothing in comparison.  Thinking about them now I am starting to drool.  In fact, heading back to this restaurant in a few weeks and I may have to order about 4 of these.

Goats Cheese Fritter, £5

If anyone knows me at all, or at least listens to me when I talk about food, if there is Goat’s Cheese on the menu, it gets eaten.  It is always delicious and this time there was absolutely no exception.  Normally when I order Goat’s Cheese it come dressed up on a fancy plate with lots of dressings that I don’t even know what they are.  I loved that this dish came down just as it is.  Edo’s food is so good that it doesn’t need to hide behind the garnish.  It stands up with confidence, front and centre saying ‘eat me.’

Ham Hock, Celeriac, Pickles & Brown Butter Breadcrumbs, £16.50

Moving away from the smaller dishes and onto main dishes, what you see before you is the most delicious ham that I have ever had.  It actually wasn’t even what I ordered however, I stared at Joel’s plate dribbling, I had to have it.

Normally when I eat large cuts of meat they can be quite tough, dry and sometimes hard to swallow but I swear that ham actually fell off and melted into my mouth.  Not only that, but it was a taste sensation.  When it arrived to the table my first thought was, ‘how is that only £16.50?’  Such a glorious dish for such an affordable price.

Kebabs, Flat Bread, Tzatziki, £12

I am surprised I chose this as when being ‘bad’ and ordering take away I would never really get a kebab.  I did however, spy someone else in the restaurant who had ordered it and I could smell it wafting over, so it was either order it or ask that gentleman for a bite.

Unbelievably tasty and I wouldn’t dare touch a take out kebab after tasting this kebab.

Churros

Believe me, I was busted at this point and I really needed a nap.  That didn’t stop me ordering dessert because – why not?  You honestly can’t go wrong with churros in my eyes, they were deliciously warm and sugary and an accompanying chocolate dip.

So whether you are having date night, night with the girls or a big celebration EDŌ is the place to be.
