What I Bought This Month

I tend to pick up random things throughout the month so I thought I would start this series – and here’s what I got in May 😁 (it was also my birthday on 21st so I included some of the pressies I was so kindly gifted!)

I have been looking for a nice pair of loafers that I could wear to work but also in my downtime and I just fell in love when I saw these 😍 The silver is so on trend at the moment. I think they really add that extra oomph to a simple casual outfit!


I saw this jacket on a rack by itself in my size and I knew I had to have it! I’m adoring the bell sleeve trend for Spring/ Summer and this is a great way to bring the trend into my wardrobe. I styled this in a work outfit and also a weekend outfit. It’s definitely a very versatile piece.



This diamanté choker pack caught my eye from well across the store. I have been on the search for a choker similar to this one for ages, but could find one that looked this good (or expensive) – I’m totally in love with it and trying not to wear it everywhere 😜 I do like the other pink choker it came with, a great staple!


Every time I wear a pair of jeans I always say ‘damn I wish I had a belt’. Well I have finally bought one. I loved the studs on this one and how skinny it is. It should go with the majority of my jeans as well.


These grey joggers felt super comfy and I just couldn’t leave them – I was right not to, they are perfect loungewear 😁


I had been eyeing up a jacket very similar to this one in Zara but I didn’t want to splurge too much on it, then I saw this beautiful number in Bershka 😍 It is so similar and great quality. I love the contrast of the harsh moto style with the soft pink faux suede. I’ve styled this how I would wear it casually at the weekend.



I picked up these next pieces in TK Maxx in Carrickmines (my favourite shop for clothes):

This Ralph Lauren vest top was only €28, RRP €105! It is a gorgeous top for summer and I will definitely get a good bit of usage out of it this year. I’ve styled this in a casual daytime outfit with jeans and also a ‘night out’ outfit. This top is the exact reason I love TK Maxx so much – great designer pieces at amazing prices 😀



How cute is this striped ‘Daydreamer’ tshirt. I have styled this with jeans for a casual everyday look. This is exactly what I like to wear on relaxed weekends when all I’m doing is a spot of shopping or a game of pitch and putt.


I have an affinity for skulls on tops and the colour burgundy, so when I saw this tshirt it was going in the basket. This is super soft cotton and another great casual piece.



These next few items I was very kindly gifted my the lovely people in my life for my birthday:

I am so in love with these Harry Potter Pyjamas! They are super soft and comfy, I have basically been living in them since I got them 🙂


Mac Fruity Juicy Collection Bronzing Powder in Refinded Golden.  I had been looking for a new summer bronzer with a glow and this is the perfect one! The packaging is gorgeous too which is a plus.

Mac Strobe Cream. I have been meaning to try this for ages as I am all about that glow but I just never picked it up, so glad to have it in my collection now. I have been giving it a good trial run recently and loving it so far


Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. Ok, I thought the other Naked palettes were good but this far outweighs all of them. It’s all I have been reaching for lately because my everyday eye looks are always with these kind of colours! If you don’t have any of the UD Naked palettes but are looking to get one, this is definitely the one I’d recommend.

Andy knows how obsessed I am with chockers, and now I have more to add to my ever growing collection! 😀


Phew! Big influx of new things for me this month 🙂 I am justifying it by the fact that I also cleaned out my wardrobe this month…
