Vegas Recap!

Hi everyone! 
I'm back in blogland after a whirlwind week in fabulous Las Vegas!
It was everything I imagined and more, and I can't wait to visit again. Here's a quick round up of our adventure...

Playsuits were my best friend on this trip, easy to dress up or down and perfect for sightseeing or a night out on the tiles! I also picked up a pair of hot pink shorts in Zara there, which I had to wear straight away of course :)


Exploring the extravagant hotels and casinos was an adventure in itself and I was constantly in awe of my surroundings! Highlights included the beautiful Bellagio and Venetian resorts, along with the gorgeous Serendipity 3 at Caesars Palace. I also loved the stunning Chandelier bar at The Cosmopolitan with its perfectly pink theme. My ultimate favourite was the Parasol Lounge at the Wynn, overlooking the aptly named Lake of Dreams. I felt like I was in a dream at times!

Wine & Dine
No holiday would be complete without some delicious food and drinks, and we were spoiled for choice! The Cheesecake Factory was on our to-do list, having loved it when living in Chicago 5 years ago. Seriously the best cheesecake I've ever tasted! The buffet at the Wynn was also very impressive, especially the dessert bar with every type of sweet treat imaginable! 

 It was a perfect trip and I enjoyed every minute! 
It's back to reality for now but I'm so glad I have all of my photos to reminisce on.

Looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs too!
Have a great week :)

Holiday mode...

Happiest of Friday's everyone! 
I'm officially in holiday mode and very excited! 
Not only am I off to Vegas in the morning, I'm also meeting one of my best friends there who I haven't seen in over 6 months! I'm looking forward to a week of girly fun, cocktails by the pool and of course, lots of shopping :)

Have a fabulous weekend & I'll be back to regular posting soon!

Weekend Style...

Happy Monday everyone! 
What a glorious weekend of sunshine we had. Since it could well be short lived, I made the most of it and soaked up every second! I wore this Lace on Lace look for a BBQ yesterday evening and I was very excited to give my new DVF wedges their first outing. These have been on my wishlist for ages, so when I spotted them on sale on Shopbop last week, I didn't have to think twice about snapping them up! Just 4 days later, I had a pretty pink package waiting for me - right on time for the weekend. They are so comfy and will definitely be coming to Vegas with me! I'm on the official countdown now...only 4 days to go :)

Have a great week!

Friday's Fancies: Statement Shades

Happy Friday all! 
I'm ready for a sunshine filled weekend and what better way to kick it off, than with a round of Friday's Fancies dedicated to super shades! Sunglasses are definitely one of my favourite accessories (the bigger, the better) and my Tiffany & Co. shades are never far from reach! They instantly add a touch of glamour and elegance to any outfit. I've kept this look cute and casual, perfect for a spot of sign seeing on a sunny day.

Have a great weekend!

Strappy Style

If there's one shoe in the spotlight this summer, it's the strappy sandal. Carrie Bradshaw would be proud! The Manolo loving shoe queen made them uber trendy throughout the 90's and now they are back in a big way. Last year, it was all about Zara's orange/black pair that everyone in the blogging world seemed to have! Now every brand appears to have jumped on the bandwagon, with a rainbow of colours on offer. I love the slim strap styles the best, for a sleek and minimal look. They are definitely a summer must have for adding a polished and elegant touch to any outfit - day or night.

Weekend Style...

Hello all! I'm back after a lovely 3 day weekend with lots of relaxing, a little trip to Galway and fun catch up time with my girls! Before heading off on Friday, I picked up these jeans in Warehouse. I was dying to try the boyfriend style and had been eyeing this pair for a few weeks! They are quite fitted and not a typical baggy boyfriend style - the website describes them as a 'distressed boyfriend skinny', which is perfect for me! I kept it casual with nude flats and a simple sweater this time around and I'm looking forward to experimenting with this new style over the coming weeks!
