Autumn-Winter Yankee Candles

It's finally my favourite time of year again. Although I do appreciate the milder weather in the Summer months, I can't help but count down the days every year 'til it's officially September again, and therefore it is finally acceptable to pull out the chunky knits, knee high boots and visit Yankee Candle a ridiculous amount of times to see what new and exciting scents they have to offer. Hallowe'en & Christmas candle shopping is up there with my favourite things to do. Sad, I know.

I had always been a fan of the large or medium sized jars in Yankee.. but when there are so many scents to choose from and some candles don't necessarily have the same scent when they are burnt, I figured it would be best to opt for the votives this time. Priced at £1.80 and providing up to 15 hours of fragrance each, I think they're incredible value for money and a great idea for testing out the scent before forking over £20 out of your pocket for a candle you mightn't end up liking.

Tropical Vibes

Palm trees and cocktails by the beach are the epitome of what the perfect summer day should entail.. but when you're living in Ireland, tropical prints on your clothes are about the height of your luck. These prints have been gracing the shop windows since the beginning of the summer season and whilst I'd love to pick up all of them, there are actually very few days in Ireland that are 'summery enough' let alone warm enough to pull off the beachy paradise prints. 

But of course I had to buy just one *maybe 2, 3 or 4* though and attempt to create an outfit that is suitable for an average 16 degrees 'summer' day where I live. So with that in mind, I chose to go for this Warehouse off-shoulder bardot style top which looks great both sitting off your shoulders and also if you wear it as a regular top to give a square-ish neckline. I love the splash of blue and green print on the white background, which makes for a perfect combination when paired with blue or white denim jeans, or even with a denim skirt. 

I've linked this top and more tropical printed pieces if you'd like to have a look. X

£25 PLT Embroidered Jeans


Embroidered jeans seem to be the latest trend that everybody is lusting over this summer. They can be so easily paired with a casual plain white tee and flat sandals, or dressed up with a fitted shirt and heels. Topshop in particular have brought out a few pairs that are completely stunning - although they're priced at almost £60 which not many are willing to pay for such a new trend that will likely go out of fashion as quickly as it came in. So I have decided to put together this post to share the complete bargain that I found - the embroidered skinny jeans that I'm wearing below were just £25 from Pretty Little Thing - and I actually much prefer these to the Topshop jeans if I'm honest. They sit lower on my waist than I usually prefer (I always go for high waisted), and although they aren't an exact dupe for the Topshop pair which have the 'Mom' jeans shape and embroidery right down to the bottom of the leg, I prefer the skinny look of these PLT jeans and the more vibrant embroidery.. and at such a good price, you can't really go wrong! For size reference, I'm wearing a size 8 so I'd recommend ordering your normal size. I have linked this pair plus a few alternative options below.
