Face of JD Sports

So it's been a bit quiet here lately! Back in February I started a 6 week challenge which involved a return to working out, a lot of meal planning & prepping and a bit of sugar craving too! I really enjoyed focusing on this area of my life and have tried to keep it up as much as I can... With the occasional pizza and glass of wine of course! It does involve a lot of extra work though, so on top of a full time job that's why I've been so busy and quiet. But hopefully I've learnt to juggle them all now!

So when I heard that JD Sports were looking for a new face for 2015 to front their brand and collections I was intrigued! Once again the trainer champions have chosen street style over supermodels for their latest product shots, billboards and even tv ads! If, like me, you'd prefer a new pair of Nike Roshe than Louboutin Pigalles or your heart skipped a beat when you saw the new Stella for Adidas collection, then this is definitely the competition for you!

Thanks to the JD App, its super easy to enter! Just upload a photo of yourself & a bit of info about what you're in to, and then fans can vote for their favourite entries!

Best of luck!

Winter Warmer

I really don't like January. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here! Its so cold & quiet that the only way to get through it is to treat ourselves or make some exciting plans! I've done a bit of shopping, booked a weekend away and am starting back at the gym tomorrow morning! It seems like the whole country is on a January Detox/Health Kick and I'm loving it! Its nice to start the year off on a positive note!
I started talking about January because this outfit is all about the layers & wrapping up! It has been so cold in Cork these last few weeks. I love my new Penney's hat as its so snug & cosy and, at €3, wont break the bank! I've had my eye on this adorable little camera bag from Accessorize for ages and snapped it up in the Sale for just €20!
Hope everyone's having a great 2015 so far,

Thats a Wrap!

So, you've spent all your hard earned money, you've visited every shop & website and you've finally found the perfect gifts for all your loved ones, all that's left to do is wrap them! You must never underestimate the power of good wrapping! It takes an ordinary gift to another level and just makes it so special to give to someone, not to mention how good they look under the tree. I'm now going to share my top Gift Wrap tips with you and some beautiful inspirational pics.
Happy Wrapping:)
  • Leave your wrapping until all of your shopping is done & do it all together.
  • Set up a good station for yourself with everything you need & a big table.
  • Make yourself some mulled wine & put on some Christmas music.
  • Collect things you love such as Cinnamon Sticks, Stars, Candy Canes etc.
  • Visit your local Craft Store & Pound Shop to stock up on brown paper, tissue, tape & twine.
  • Get yourself a good scissors.
  • Forage the woods/garden for festive greenery holy & berries.
  • Google Free Printable Gift Tags... There is loads of them.
  • Always have an element of pattern, whether its in your ribbon, tape or paper.
  • Don't be afraid to mix it up & clash.
  • Have your labels ready made and find yourself a good pen.
  • Always fold down the edges of your paper for a neater finish.
  • Use as little tape as possible, unless its decorative.
  • Have fun & enjoy giving your presents!
