How to afford Louboutin/ Chanel / Holidays

I think every one of us ladies at least once in her life dreamed of having one of these beautiful pairs of Louboutins or a quilted Chanel bag. 
I'm all about making my dreams come true now so I'm starting a 'saving for Chanel' plan ! 
The best part is that this plan is going to make me healthier, prettier ( hopefully)  and will get me a Chanel too ! Hope it will inspire you too! 
Where to get the money for the Chanel/ Louboutin/ LV you ask ? Here is the answer! 

1. Goodbye busses.
 Instead of taking the bus to college/ work every morning start walking or cycling! 
This way you will not only avoid paying ridiculous money for the always late buses but you will also get healthier and get nice toned legs too! 
I brought this plan to life and started cycling everywhere 2 weeks ago lost 1 pound and saved €52! 


2. Goodbye takeaways. 
I must admit I have a slight addiction to takeaway coffee and sushi.  But don't we all just love our Sturbucks in the morning and munchies in the evening ? 
By making the coffee yourself and putting it into your favourite coffee mug and teaching yourself to make sushi at home you can save up to €80 in only two weeks time. 
Coffee € 3.50 x 10 = €35 
Bento boxes €12 x 4 = €48 

3. Goodbye alcohol.
Yes I did say goodbye alcohol... Okay maybe not all the alcohols. Wine with your girls on a Friday night is okay but a crazy night out and getting shitfaced is a no! Those Louboutins are worth it, I promise! 
Nightclub tickets 2 x €10 = €20
Drinks in a pub 2 x €45 = €90 

4. Goodbye unnecessary expenses.
Do you really need that YET ANOTHER red lipstick... You have 7 similar ones at home. 
That sale dress is so last season, you like it alright but are you REALLY going to wear a tulle floral dress in winter? Hardly. 
And this way in two weeks time you can save up to €60.
Lipstick €18
Dress €40 

And thats 303 in two weeks ! and - approx 2 pounds . 

I know that not all of us actually spend that much money in two weeks, I certainly don't, so it might take us a longer while to save up 445 euro for Louboutin Pigalle or whooping 3 000 euro ( or more ) for a Chanel. But what you save is always gonna be yours, you can spoil yourself to a trip to spa or holidays with that money! 


Throwback Thursday / Party two piece

I was looking through folders on my iPad the other day and came across this entire lookbook Dan and I shot in collaboration with Primark back in April. In the chaos of Leaving cert and end of school celebrations I completely forgot to share one of the looks with you ! And this one was probably my favourite, the two piece I'm wearing in the photos was just so perfect I didn't want to give it back after the shoot. From what I can remember this look was ment to be a party outfit so I paired the quite unique two piece with a super cool plastic clutch and funky sandals and finished off the look with a bright pink lippie. 
Looking and those photos also made me realise how chubby I was back then :o I'm kinda back to my usual weight but I'm starting to see small fat rolls appear here and there. Since my summer body thing never happened maybe the new me before new year will ? I have free gym in college now so no excuses ! I'll keep you updated on my progress if there will be any :) 



How to style maxi coats

Whether you love them are not maxi coats are here and they're here to stay!
I personally love them and loved them since I was little as they reminded me of old Hollywood stars from black and white movies and their on  screen outfits.  And you can't tell me that you never dressed up in your moms maxi coat and pearls when you were little!
Here are some more modern inspirations of how to wear maxi coats. The sport luxe is of course my favourite as it's practical and very me but the more sophisticated looks also speak to me. 
I'm on a search for either a camel or a baby blue ( like this Maje one ) coat but bit more affordable so if you have any suggestions as to where get one that would be fab ! Expect some ' How I style' posts as soon as I get one in meanwhile you can get inspiration from bit shorter coat I wore in my last post.   Mx
