Monki Appreciation Post

Monki set the blogging world crazy when they opened their first store in Carnaby Street, London earlier last year but somehow I overlooked it. Everyone was raving about their great clothes at affordable prices, but I never even clicked onto their website! That is until today when I took the plunge and scrolled through their online store. OH BOY ITS HEAVEN! The Cheap Monday sister brand has an abundance of funky clothing which is most definitely street-style worthy. I've seen many bloggers sporting the brand recently and maybe I should too!

I couldn't tell you about a brand that's caught my eye without putting together a cute collage of my favourite pieces, so here ya go!MONKI
Look at how perfect these pieces are, my personal favourites are the printed blouses and the neon jumper! Also nothing in this picture is over £30, not often I can say that! Definitely affordable for my teen bank balance! 

I'm supposed to be going to London on Thursday, mainly to visit the #AALondonOutlet store in Brick Lane (to see if I can get some cheap EasyJeans!) and to delve into a burger at the newly opened Five Guys! So hopefully I'll find myself walking the streets of Carnaby Street to take a look at this mighty Monki store!

P.S. Sorry for not blogging very frequently on here, I promise to get into more of a 'blogging schedule' once I'm back in Belfast :)

Brandy Melville

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

From the moment I laid eyes on the Brandy Melville website, I knew it was love. I had to really restrict myself to these 8 items when putting together this collage, because if I had my way I would've put everything on it! It has a great boho California vibe to it which I adore! I always say if I was skinnier I'd have to order everything from the website, but hopefully with my plans to lose weight, I can look good in their clothes in no time!

Brandy Melville maybe an American brand, but they just opened a shop on Kings Road in London so I'll definitely have to try and take a visit!

What's the Craic?

Dress - Motel Rocks // Belt - Urban Outfitters // Shoes - Topshop

Long time no speak! I seem to have been starting all my posts like this recently... I've just been lacking the motivation to blog! I've also been all over the place, going to Ireland and England. By the title, you can tell this particular photo was taken in Ireland!

Last week I was in Co. Clare, Ireland visiting some long lost relatives that we hadn't seen in 15 years (so when I was a baby). The view was amazing, and the pictures look like it was cold but it really wasn't! At the moment, it's the hottest place in the British Isles! Gutted I'm not still there! The fam treated us by taking us out to meals at The Atlantic Hotel and it was delicious! It was such a great trip, just wish it wasn't a 4 hour car journey down there from Belfast!

This isn't really a new outfit, more like a modified one. I took my beloved Motel Rocks dress and trusty Topshop Vectras. However I added my Urban Outfitters belt to make it more interesting/tough.

Also in other news, I applied for a Christmas temp weekend job! I completed the online assessment they make you do, and I got an email saying they've sent my application to the interviewer! I really really hope I get the job, surrounded by makeup all day? Heaven!
