New Glasses from GlassesShop

Recently I have begun to wonder why I,  hoarder of multiple pairs of shoes, only ever had one pair of glasses at a time. Until recently that is. For my birthday I picked up a new pair of glasses which were well overdue, and then again, last week, I was sent these beautiful frames that I picked out from How BEAUTIFUL is the colour? I mean, come on..!! Nude glasses. 

As someone who has worn glasses for as long as I can remember (I was about 6 when I got them), it's not always you're favourite thing to have to wear. Admittedly I hated wearing glasses for most of my childhood and teenage life. Getting braces didn't help with the 'nerd' look either might I add. I've always had a bit of a complex about them, and it wasn't until I was 17 or 18 that I started wearing lenses. I have a lot more confidence in myself when I don't wear my glasses. BUT saying that, I wear them 99% of the time as I find contact lenses just aren't as good. I'm sure some of you will agree. So when I came across nude glasses I was excited. For once, a pair of glasses that didn't completely take over my whole face, and would kind of blend with the rest of the colours in my face. Nude. Perfect. Granted they are a big frame but I think that just makes me look as if I'm embracing my glasses, which I'll admit, I am trying to do. 

If you're on the lookout for the perfect pair (of glasses that is), then I'd highly recommend checking out because not only do they have a great range of frames but I also have a 50% off code for you guys on your next order. Just enter GSHOT50 at the checkout. And they don't just sell regular frames, they also do prescription sunglasses. Happy spectacle shopping guys :)

Summer Essentials : DIY CAMI

Cami tops are such an essential during the summer months, and all year round for dressy wear and nights out, but it can be a nightmare trying to pick the perfect one for the perfect price. I thought it would also be nice to have a cami top that nobody else owns, so I tried my hand at making my own from scratch. It was actually a lot quicker and simpler than I thought, and here's how I did it..

You'll need:
A cami top (that fits well) 
A large sheet of paper
1m fabric
String for the strapes (about a meter)
Pins, Needle & Thread
Sewing Machine (or careful hand stitching)

I made my pattern from a cami top I already owned and knew fit me well. To trace the pattern I folded the top so the two side seams touched, so that I could clearly see half the front of the top, and half of the back of the top. This made tracing the front and back patterns much easier. You can then

Top tips for Wearing Prints and Brights for Summer

Colours and prints aren't usually my thing, but when the sun is scorching outside, it's hard not to get dragged over to the dark side (or bright side). You may have seen in my latest haul (you can watch that HERE if you haven't seen it) that I picked up a few pieces from Aeropostale in Liffey Valley. This pineapple tee being one of my favourite items. I thought it would be a nice challenge for me to
