Pop of Colour

Jacket - FCUK, Jeans - Zara, Top - Zara, Boots - ASOS, Scarf - Zara, Watch - Phosphor Appear (win one here!)

I still remember when my parents bought me this charcoal jacket waaaay back when French Connection didn't even exist in Cork and there were only a few pieces in Brown Thomas (Irish department store).  My dad insisted on getting me this jacket even though it was 2 sizes too big for me...hahaha!  They didn't have my size but he loved it so much he just got it anyway...thankfully it's not huge on me and I'm still able to wear it!  I remember they bought me two things, the jacket and a stripy blue & white A-line skirt.  My dad loved shopping for clothes with us!  

I actually bought this scarf in Zara two years ago when I was first making videos on YouTube.  I remember it so well because it was when I was living in the UK but came back to Ireland at Easter break to visit!  I love the colours in this scarf...it fades from pink to purple to red.  This is how I love to wear it, with a really simple outfit/colours like grey!  I like how it adds a pop of colour to an otherwise all-grey/black outfit.  


With my babies <3 
Sorry about the midriff on display...that wasn't intentional and I hate when that happens!  But my trusty photographer failed to bring that to my attention so...there you go.  :)


I actually French braided my hair last night and slept on it...this was the effect the following morning!  I quite like it and the best thing about it is there's no heat involved!  A few people have commented on how I never wear my hair "wavy" anymore and that I always straighten it.  I actually haven't been straightening it at all...the way my hair is, the longer it gets the straighter it becomes.  You can see this quite clearly from photos!  When I had short hair it was really curly, mid-length is wavy and long is always a lot straighter.  So really all I've been doing is washing, blow-drying and brushing it out.  I do this every 3 days so I rarely use heat on my hair.  If I style it with my GHD or curling iron it's only for special occasions :)  I'm trying to get it as healthy as possible so that I can keep growing it out for my wedding!

I also filmed a quick video announcing my meet-up on Saturday so if you're interested you can check that out here :)

Stay Stylish!

  13. Love this! I agree--hair tutorial! I haven't a clue how to do a French braid.

    I'm trying to grow my hair out, too, but it's very processed underneath the current color. I think I'll have to get it trimmed up one last time before the wedding but that's it. I want to wear mine down. Do you plan on wearing yours up or down?

  15. Love pops of color, especially when they are scarves...my fav!!! :) Also, what a great idea to sleep in your hair french braided...I have done it braided in pigtails before, but yours looks lovely! Hope your week has been wonderful so far, Anna!

  16. Nice touch. Glad you resisted modeling your makeup after the dash of color too and went with a more natural look.
