Ootd & Babooshka Experience

Hello lovelies,

I hope your all having the best Christmas ever and stuffing your faces. I know I have been lol I say as I stick my hand into the box of chocolates beside me. Its crazy how guilt free I feel eating all this shite at Christmas. But sure as we all say it will be back to the gym Monday.

I've had these pictures taken a few weeks now and just haven't had the chance to sit down and blog about it what with all the Christmas rushing around and working in retail. But sure here we have it, I took a trip to Babooshka hairdressers recently to change my hair and make it more funky. If you've never heard of Babooshka check them out I will pop the link below for there facebook.

I had such a lovely experience in the salon the girls are so nice and welcoming. It was Sara who done my hair such a nice girl who spoke to me about what it was I wanted to get done I showed her some pictures and we got going with funking up my hair. Here's the result;

I was going for a blue grey color but it turned out a metallicy color that was even better than what I had imagine it would be. The picture isnt doing it much justice at all but if you follow me on instagram you will notice the difference in color in some of the pictures.

They also do dreadlocks and extensions in the salon. I absolutely love the look of these dreads but not sure its something I could pull off on your averge day maybe for a festival or something. All in all i loved my experience in Babooshka and I will definitely be returning. Now on to the outfit.

I am so so in love with this pink fluffy piece of heaven from Nine crows its unbelievable. I swear its the most comfiest thing ever and so warm.

Outfit Details;

Coat - Nine Crows
Tshirt - Tola Vintage
Shorts - Fresh 
Docs - Ebay

Tola Vintage Kilo Sale

Hola lovelies,

Hope your all having a great weekend. Mine is going pretty well although too fast as usual. Yesterday I met up with my friend Jen who you might know from her blog Vintageblackrags if not i suggest checking her out. So yeah we met up yesterday and went to the Tola vintage kilo sale in the RDS. Ive been dying to check out the Tola ones as I'd heard some great things about them. We got there about 12 and we taught we'd have to que but thankfully we didn't. I was actually shocked at how quiet it was although the rain will do that.

I had set myself a budget and really didn't think I would be able to stick to it considering the last kilo sale I was at when I had arms full in 2 seconds lol. But it just wasn't my lucky day I guess I got a few nice bits but nothing blew my mind I have to say.

Seriously how cute is this sailor hat. I love this style of hats especially the leather ones but I went with this one because I love the detail on it.

I got all of these for €26 absolute bargain thats the good thing with kilo sales if you buy light stuff you get quiet a bit for your money. My favourite find out of these is the Christmas jumper I love the collar on it, its just so cute. 

Myself and Jen had planned on taking blog pictures but of course it being Ireland it pissed rain all day and we couldn't so i just took some outfit pics in my house.

Outfit Details:

T-shirt - Folkster kilo sale
Trousers -River Island
Boots - Agyness Deyn DrMartens

Make Up:

Foundation - Topshop BBcream in 03
Brows - Anastasia Dipbrow in soft brown
Lips - M.A.C lipstick Hang Up
Eyes - M.A.C cranberry eye shadow, urban decay smog eye shadow, They're real mascara by benefit
Highlighter - Sleek precious metals palette
Contour - Barry Ms chissel cheeks palette.

As always any questions just leave them below and be sure to check out my instagram for daily posts
@my_wardrobe_adventures or you can click the instagram button over on the right.

I will do a small post when i upload it just to let you all know its up but it should be tonight. I will leave the link to my channel below so you can subscribe and receive a notification about my first video it would mean a lot.

Lavish lust list

Hola lovelies,

So today I've decided to do a lavish lust list. Seen as it's coming up to Christmas we always have a list of things we'd love if money wasn't an issue lol. Well personally I have a list like this all the time.

Chanel -

Sweet baby boo I need you in my life so bad it's not even funny not only is it my favourite colour but it's vintage Chanel three of my all time favourites. This baby is on nasty gal.

Next up is this beaut Chanel dress so so perfect and would work in so many different ways. Also available on nasty gal.


Then we have these colourful beauts from Y.R.U available on dolls kill. I seriously want them in every colour possible. They look like they would actually be comfortable as well because of the giant platform.

Mary me Jimmy Paul-

I don't actually know how I didn't find this designer sooner I mean the stuff is beyond fabulous.

Seriously how unreal are they? Go check out @marymejimmypaul on Instagram and fall deeply in fluffy love like I did.


Let's be honest who doesn't want a ysl hanging from their shoulder. I'd probably have a few different colours if I was minted lol.

Dior -

These Dior beauty booties are so perfect that I would definitely need them in both colours. That heal is far to dreamy  (love heart eyes emoji).

Ok so this list could honestly go on and on and on. So I shall cut it short and leave it at this. Let me know what you think? And what would be the first item of clothing you'd buy if money wasn't a problem.

Comment below and as always any other questions pop them down there as well. Also check out my instagram for daily posts @my_wardrobe_adventures or click the instagram button over on the right.

Hey lovelies,

I know it's a bit late but I had this blog post finished last week and it never saved let's just say I wasn't impressed lol.

So Halloween night I just wenter to the local firework display with my friends and their children. They had a concert on and amusement rides and games for the kids.I didn't bother dressing up because I had done it the week before in work. I dressed as twisty the clown for work I will pop in some pictures at the end.

Outfit details;
Hat - Forever 21
Sleevless Duster - Forever 21
Poloneck Jumper - Penneys / Primark
Chain - Claires accessories
Culottes - Penneys / Primark

The fire display was so good as always they put on a great show every year. Afterwards I stayed in my friends house got Chinese and watched hocus pocus. Most relaxed Halloween in years and I enjoyed it.

Here is my twisty the clown from American horror story that I did for work.

Getting ready with yo' gurl

Hola lovelies,

Happy Halloween to you all hope your all having a fab one and have great plans for this evening. I'm going to watch the local firework display tonight with my friends.

I mentioned in my latest Outfit of the day post that I was thinking of doing a get ready with me post. I took a couple of pictured that night getting ready and said I'd give one a go. Let me know if you like seeing posts like these.

So I'll get on with it so. Here are all the products I used on my face to make it presentable lol. Isn't it crazy the effort girls habe to go through and men are done in no time.

  • Nyx stay matte but not flat foundation in Creamy natural
  • Catrice concealer in medium 3
  • Essence cover stock in matt sand 01 
  • Urban decay potion primer
  • Benefit they're real mascara
  • Mac cranberry eyeshadow
  • Naked palette smog
  • Sleek eyeshadow kit in Dark
  • Sleek precious metals highlighting palette 
  • Mac hang up lipstick
  • Collection lip definer in 5 Damson
  • Barry M chisel cheeks.

Very unlike me but I decided to go all out and apply a false lash. I chose the eylure lengthening lash in no. 080. I liked these ones because they weren't to full on and fake looking if you get me. They just added a nice length to them.

The finished face I love this lip and cranberry eyeshadow together especially when wearing all black.

For my hair I decided to go for a slicked back look. I was a bit weary trying this look I've seen it on so many others and loved it but wasn't sure it would suit my face. But I bit the bullet and gave it a go.

For it I used the head funk extreme gel spray first running my fingers through ut so it didn't all stick together. When I had it in place I sprayed some silvikrin maximum hold spray over it.

The most important part well for me anyways the outfit.

Sheer dress shirt- Nine Crows
Shoes - Public Desire
Crop top - New Look
Bicycle shorts - Urban Outfitters
Rings - Forever 21
Earrings - Forever 21
Bag - Chanel

And of course the obligatory drunk selfie from the end of the night. I know I'm not the only one who does this ladies lol.

Ok so I hope you liked this post as it's a bit different from what I usually do. If you do I will do more of them and go into more detail in them.

Any questions or suggestions leave them down below. If you haven't already checked out my giveaway on Instagram check it out it ends tonight. My instagram is @my_wardrobe_adventures or you can click om the instagram button over on the right to be brought to my page.

Again Happy Halloween habe a creepy and spooky one everybody
