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!!

Turn up Tuesday! Jean edition.

Boyfriend, Blue, Ripped, Skinny, Fitted, and Flared… the list of these magical jeans seems endless and timeless and so easily turned up. If you are a shorty like myself this is a very handy trick that thankfully has been back in Vogue for a couple of seasons now, to turn up the bottom of your jeans is A-okay now and no longer a ‘geeky’ ‘out of style’ move to attempt.

Or so they tell me.

Either way it’s wonderful because as a short stack I’m forever in the petite section of clothing stores and even then all jeans end up being just that little bit too long for me if I want to wear flats, it’s a nightmare! So this little trick is so welcomed in the house of EIC, and it’s fantastic that the already pre-turned jean are made ready-to-wear in most high street shops now, ranging from +New Look to @H&M to +Topshop and beyond. They look amazing with heels or wedges (or wedge trainers if you feel so inclined) and of course my cherished and comfy flats. 

So what are the best of the best?

New Look are good at the turn, those their range a little more on the bigger turn up than say Topshop’s LEIGH jean – it sits pre-turned and tiny at the ankle. But if you want them higher up, it’s an easy fix if they aren’t the super skinny type of material – you know the kind that feels like a second skin and makes you feel every single calorie you’ll intake that day?

Yeah, that kind.

I do love them though, and my favourite would have to be the LEIGH from Topshop. As a very recent Topshop jean convert I can say that. Because for years it was a shop I only spent money in if it was on much needed accessories (or their amazing makeup line!) but very rarely did I gravitate toward their casual clothing lines, I don’t know why, but the homeless hipster vibe they give off isn’t really my thing over all. 

BUT their jeans are just amazeballs, with the LEIGH winning out in my mind (or my legs, if you prefer) and I live in my various pairs.

Turn up Tuesday

Beware of vanity sizing though, TS is rampant with it and whatever size you are in one pair of jean may not be what you are in another – trust me! 

What are your favourite jeans on the scene and why?!

Of Belfast, Northern Ireland, Christmas Markets & Mumford & Sons.

Myself in a horse-shaped hat! As you do!

This weekend was a busy one for me and a few friends as we traveled down to Belfast for the Mumford &Sons concert that was playing on Saturday night at the Odyssey. We had sprung for VIP tickets, and never was I as glad that I overpaid for something as I was that night. The seats were wonderful, as was the bar treatment and the meal, not to mention the show itself. If you are a fan of Mumford, I strongly recommend seeing them live at some point; I promise you will not regret it! The most incredible atmosphere I think I have ever experienced at a concert! 

However, before and after said concert we indulged in a little last minute Christmas shopping, and it was our first time to visit the Continental Market that visits Belfast every year around this time.
The market itself is filled with various stalls from all around the world, all of them offering a taste of somewhere new and exciting. The majority were food stalls, and if you are brave, there were many stalls with some … unusual items on sale. Kangaroo burgers, I’m looking at you! Nevertheless, if you aren’t so adventurous there are tons of other stalls offering everything from crafts, gardening accessories & plants, clothes, hats, shoes! You name it; they have it, from around Europe and beyond these stalls offer the causal Northern Ireland shopper a little something from abroad, right at home. German beers and Bratwurst to Spanish Paella, Waffles, Crêpes and Dutch pancakes, Cakes, Cheese, the list is endless it really is, and if you’re hungry enough your palate will thank you for a number of new experiences!
Here are just a few of my snaps from the weekend!

  Have you been to the market, or Belfast at Christmas? What did you think of it?! Let me know!!

I went a little shopping mad too while there, my bank account is just not very happy right now!
