Loving Lanvin For H&M

I a big fan of Lanvin & head designer Alber Elbaz, unfortunately like a lot of Lanvin Lovers out there…I can only admire from a far! That was until H&M announced Lanvin as their next collaborative designer.
I am so excited to think that  a little Lanvin number could soon be hanging in my wardrobe & like half the world I have been patiently waiting to catch a glimpse of the new collection……Well it’s time, H&M have finally allowed us a sneak peek…..

I selected some of my favourite pieces…….

I absolutely love the Faux Fur Jacket & Vest, the vibrant Pink & Yellow dresses…..who says we can’t add a splash of colour during the festive season!
You can checkout the entire collection (here).  Now the only trouble is finding a spot in the huge queues on Nov 23rd!

Tips to beat the queues are welcome 😉


It’s a Plaid Fad

Shirt – Guess, Tank – H&M, Hat – Vintage, Jeans – Urban Outfitters, Boots – Browns

It’s funny when I think of plaid shirts my mind always flicks back to the early 90s when I was Plaid Shirt Obsessed…..I specifically remember rummaging through my mam & aunts old clothes in my grandparents house & finding a great 70s plaid shirt….I thought all my Christmas’s had come at once, although I don’t think my folks too keen as I wore it to death!……I bought this shirt last year & it’s perfect for winter, warm & comfy with a pop of colour. The hat – I bought in Kensington Market as part of my boyfriends Halloween costume….I’m not the kind of girl who lets a good hat go to waste!

I Bake Now Whoopie…..Pie

When it comes to cooking there are two types of people…The Cant Cook The Won’t Cook &  I’m somewhere in between. My boyfriend happens to be a great cook so I guess it’s too easy for me to “won’t cook” which in turn leads to me “can’t cook”……but of late I decided enough is enough it’s time to get back into the kitchen!

My boyfriend introduced me to Donal’s The Good Mood Food Blog,  it’s packed full of simple home-cooked recipes, naturally as a choc-a-holic  I chose these Whoopie Pies (recipe here). I have to say the pies were pretty easy to make, however my first batch turned out looking a little sloppy – due to me forgetting to convert the Irish oven temp to Canadian, rookie error! They were still very tasty though. I was pretty impressed with my second batch…..I guess practice makes perfect!

I’m sure you’ll have no trouble figuring out which batch is which 😉

Falling For Forever XX1

Shirt, Skirt & Ring – Forever 21

As promised folks here are some of my purchases from last weekends shopping spree.I took advantage of a sunny Sunday & wore this shear black shirt, I love the detailed collar. I paired it with this textured skirt and thigh high boots which were a gift from my mam she has great taste! I love the multi-coloured leaves Canada’s Fall/Autumn is truly beautiful.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

While walking to work this early breezy morning it really did feel like winter is a coming…..temperatures are dropping & as each day passes we see less daylight but  I’ve decided to focus on the positives of Winter…Here’s what I came up with;

1. Skiing/Snowboarding & Skating fun
2. Drinking creamy hot chocolate topped with marshmallows
3. Christmas at home in Ireland with family & friends
4. Lot’s of festive parties
5. Wrapping up in warm winter clothes – what better than Faux Fur

Here are some of my fav picks

1. Dolce Vita Faux Fur Vest
2. Dorothy Perkins – Caramel Faux Fur Gilet
3. Ella Moss – Kennedy Faux Fur Vest
4. Miss Selfridge – Leopard Faux-Fur Trapper Hat
5. ModCloth – Cold Snap Mittens
