I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday evening? Anyone watching the Xfactor? Loving these two hour episodes.
I am not long home. Earlier today I made an appearance at Lyrath Hotel in Kilkenny to support the Berkeley Unite charity in aid of the balcony survivors. Such a awful tragedy that left the Irish broken, shocked and hurt in the summer.
Today by appearing for a brief interview with Lorraine Keane on the stage was the least I could do to show my support. I would have loved to stay longer but my nanny is very, very unwell at the moment and I want to spend as much time with her. Especially because I have been away in Nice, France for the last few days with Expedia which I will chat to you all about tomorrow in a separate blog post.
Anyway…. last night all my friends decided last minute to head out for a few drinks. I wasn’t well at all yesterday flying home, I was vomiting just before we boarded the plane, I don’t know if it was something I eat or my banging migraine but I was so ill.
When I arrived into Dublin, delayed – I was feeling better but all I wanted was to chill for the night. After Carla collected us from the airport she persuaded myself and Dylan to come out. When I got home I still wasn’t feeling totally in the mood – I was still 50/50. After a shower and glass of wine, I started to get ready – makeup first – always! It helps me decide on what outfit to wear. Anyone else the same?
In the end I went with an all black outfit…. safe and chic. All black is the answer when you dont know what to wear 🙂
When I posted the picture of my outfit last night – lots of you had lovely things to say and again the request came in for the makeup details. I am going to get back into my youtube videos this week, so I will record a video soon. But for now… here are my outfit and makeup details from last night!
So a good few questions came in about my outfit last night so I will answer them now.
1. What tan was I wearing?
I was wearing my new Cocoa Brown Instant tan and some Flormar bronzer over my chest.
2. What bra was I wearing?
None – the lace up area is really fitted so it gives you great cleavage and support.
3. Are the Missguided jeans true to size?
Yes they are a wonderful fit. Nice and fitted and a lovely soft material. If I was buying again though, I would go a size down, so that way they will be super super tight… but if you just want a normal fit – buy your normal size.
4. How much were my Louboutins
I didn’t mention them because they are no longer in stock or in season so they are unavailable to buy. But to answer the Q – they are €995 and a treat to myself when my book became a Christmas best seller in 2013. 🙂
TIP: I used most of my SoSueMe Brushes for this makeup application (as well as the others in the pics below) which you can purchase here.
