OOTD: We'll Be Burning Up Like Neon Lights

Another fashion post! Jeez remember when I would only post one every few months?!
I promise I've got a few beauty posts coming up!

If you saw my haul last week you'll have seen this yellow dress and necklace already!

 Neon Yellow Dress €24.99 New Look | Necklace €5 Penneys | Black Platform Heels around €30 LoudLook

I hate cutting my friend out of the photos but I wasn't sure if she'd be comfortable with her photo plastered on the internet to complete strangers!
I never took a photo of the back on but I did take one for the haul so here it is:

The knot falls perfectly over a bra strap so you can get away with wearing a nude one rather than a clear strap one.

At first I didn't like the texture of the dress, It reminded me of those waffle texture makeup/toiletry bags.
But I actually really like it now! I think the colour goes well with darker hair. 

See you next week

Cosmecology Cosmo Facial* at Sam McCauleys Salon & Spa

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a facial on the Sam McCauleys Facebook page, although its valid until the end of August I decided to have it on Saturday on my day off work.
I was so excited for this facial, people think that when you're a therapist yourself, you probably have treatments constantly, it's actually the opposite! I haven't had a facial since college when we had to practise on each other! So I was looking forward to being pampered myself! And pampered I was!
 The facial I had is called the Cosmecology Cosmo Facial* which uses the Cosmecology Skincare range. The facial takes about 30 minutes but after factoring in the time it takes to get ready for the facial and to get ready to leave etc it takes about 40 minutes. Cosmecology is by the famous skincare brand Guinot and is specifically for younger skin. 

''From the laboratories of Guinot and designed specifically for younger skin, this treatment uses facial care products with scientifically proven results which remove impurities, leaving the complexion looking radiant and feeling hydrated.''

The word cosmecology comes from 2 words. Cosmetology for Beauty and Ecology for the Earth.

A Haul Because I'm A Shop-a-holic ft Penneys & New Look

Yes, I know, I've been away A LOT lately. 
The main reason is I've felt so guilty for not posting which resulted in me not posting AT ALL and burying my head in the sand. ITS A VISCIOUS CIRCLE.
But, I've missed you guys. So, I've come up with a new blogging schedule to take a bit of the pressure off of me, and also to give you all a bit of regularity so you know exactly when to expect a post.

I've decided to post every Monday. I would choose Sunday but lets face it if I go out after work on a Saturday night, we all know I'll be dying of a hangover the  next day and the last thing I'll want to do is stare at a computer screen. Mondays work out well also as the place I work is not open on Mondays. 

Now, onto the fun stuff. I don't know about you but I love hauls. I think its the noseyness in me. I love seeing what other people have bought. I'll see something I like but would never have known about without them showing it so I can keep an eye out for it next time in that particular shop.

The first item I got was this neon yellow dress in New Look. This was €25. I was in the dressing room trying stuff on and my Mam actually brought this into me. I wasn't gone on it on the hanger. I'm not a fan of the texture but its lovely on. Its a very thick heavy material. I think the colour goes well with my hair and will look amazing with a tan! It was the detail on the back that sold me. Its got one of those twists at the back.

OOTN - Crop It Like It's Hot

I know this is my 2nd OOTD/OOTN in a row but WHATEVER.

 Aztec Crop Top*: The Hut | Black Skirt: Borrowed from my cousin | Black Shoes: LoudLook
I am OBSESSED with this crop top, its the perfect length and is just proper gorgeous. I'm very excited for the launch of the Womens Wear section on It launched on the 20th of May and they have some seriously gorgeous clothes. In fact, I'm off to have a browse now!

I got so many compliments on this outfit that I don't care if its a fashion sin I'll definitely be wearing it again!

OOTD - Criss Cross

First off, I want to apologise SO MUCH for the ridiculous lack of posts lately. I'm not going to make any excuses.

Jeans*: omgfashion | top*: omgfashion

I wore this when I went out for the day with a 'friend' *wink wink*, I wanted something I'd be comfortable in and this top and jeans were it! I just threw on a pair of black ballet pumps and brought my black leather jacket. I really need to start taking proper OOTD photos with my camera.
