NEW LOOK : Five Faves Under 30!

A little look at my top five faves picks under £30 this week from +New Look.  From the first velvet effect dove grey and tan bag - soft suede/velvet effect with a buttery leather feel, and gold buckle detailing. Large and study, and perfect heading in to summer for every day use. To the monochrome classic tote with gold detailing, short handles which means it's perfection for to and from the office! You know me, I'm drawn to statement jewelry, even in costume form - particularly in costume form, who doesn't love fabulosity on a budget?! Take a look at these babes all ranging from £10-30!!

Being a Bridesmaid - The Hen Do!

When you’re given the honour of being asked to be bridesmaid for your BFF, it involves a lot of things – Dress shopping, shoe shopping, looking at a lot of Pinterest accounts for all kinds ofinspiration, mild panic, followed by utter excitement for her big day.

It also involves the Hen Party / Bachelorette Party!

A daunting task for anyone, (ie. Me) that hasn’t done it before! And so, what do you do when you have to entertain not just the bride, but ten other ladies as well?

Well, you panic firstly, and then when you get over that, and do what you do well.

Google!


I found the fab Henparty.ie through friends that had used them in the past, and through their website right away I saw that they had the answer to everything I needed for the weekend of Hen themed shenanigans! 

On our way!!


It was Easter weekend, Bunny ears seemed fitting! 


Cracking Cocktails!



Mandatory stop at Biddy's! An tradition!
Pre-dinner and dancing the night away!!

The Bride chose Sligo as her designation of choice and right from the very first point of contact the ladies at Henparty.ie were so beyond helpful and lovely, no matter what silly question or panicked email I sent their way, they handled it with grace and professionalism whilst putting my mind at ease each time! (also major points for a very last min addition that was handled fantastically too!) 
The Glass House Hotel!

From our gorgeous hotel at The GlassHouse, to dinner at Limoncello, to cocktail classes and VIP at Garavogue, it was a fantastic day and night from start to finish and the Bride and her crew had a ball! 

So, if you're looking for a hen or stag do really don't hesitate to give these guys a go!
