Bomber jackets are around to stay and expect more embroidery and slogan patterns, the bomber above is super cute. Soft pleated skirts are in abundance. Nice feminine pieces feature throughout along with beautiful sheer lace pieces, leopard print is featured quiet prominently, the flowy leopard print dress being one of my top pieces of the collection. Ruffles are also thrown into the mix along with soft furs…Winter is not winter without a nice fur jacket!! Statement coats feature hugely throughout.


Urban street style are in abundance throughout, floral embroidery, cutesy slogans on Demin jackets/jeans, bombers & sports jackets are definitely huge for this season.


I’m particularly loving the accessories especially the bags, they are to die for…have a peek below..plenty of choice! Lots of embroidered bags and metallic colours throughout featured in the footwear.

FashionFashion and Beauty Blog

Right I may be biased but I do love this shopping center, there is nothing I love more than heading home and sneaking away minus kids into Athlone Town Centre, you midland ladies don’t know how lucky you are, having this on your doorstep!

This weekend was no exception when visiting home, I hightailed it in there with my two sisters. Its like our home ritual if we’re all in Westmeath at the same time!!I actually think my older sister has a worse obsession for it than me!!!

A quick Coffee/Tea break in Starbucks and we’re off, normally we hit River Island and work our way around and up!

I am a TK Maxx addict and I have to say the store in the Town Centre is fantastic, I have picked up fabulous stuff in there, Sunnies, bags, shoes you name it I’ve nabbed it!!

As you know Zara is my second home, I’ve an obsession with it, I should have shares in the place at this stage!!! The one in Athlone Town centre is amazing, it has so much stock, I love it!!

Next victim is Oasis stores, yes I have recently spent half the bank balance in there ..seriously loving the floral prints at the moment.

They have fantastic shops in the center, Born clothing, Next,Marks and Spencers, shoe lace (A fab shoe shop with unbelievable prices), Vero Moda, JD Sports, Tommy Hilfiger, Pamela Scotts (picked up a fab pair of salsa jeans there recently) Fields, Monsoon, Topshop, River Island as I mentioned, Zara, Oasis, oh and did I say Warehouse, yes warehouse another one of my favourites. They also have one of the best H&M stores. I love nabbing things from H&M when I’m home, now I know there is a H&M in Cork city but its not the same as having all your favourite stores under the one roof!! They are just a few of the stores in the Centre, but there’s over 60 stores in there!


They have Tiger which is lovely for quirky bits for the house, Sketchers is also a new addition, and do not get me started on McGorisks Pharmacy, for any beauty lover this place is a mecca for any type of beauty products you would need. They store AMAZING brands, cailyn, the balm, Flormar, Paese cosmetics, they have a huge selection those are only a handful of whats on offer. They are also stocking the fab bombay cups and candles, unfortunately they didn’t have my letter in stock at the weekend..no matter I will be back!! Any excuse!!

There is some fab restaurants if you feel peckish during the day and I would recommend “the Fattted Calf” it is divine!! And when your weight down with shopping bags just pop into the Sheraton for a little tipple!!

The centre is constantly organising superb events on a weekly or monthly basis not to mention special offers etc. Don’t believe me well check out some exciting events coming up in the next few weeks http://goo.gl/R8Wl8D Most recently I was lucky enough to attend a fabulous fashion show called the style sensation hosted by Susanne Jackson aka So Sue Me. It was also the final for Midlands Next Top Model, and the beautiful and deserving winner was Ciara Jennings, although all the contestants were gorgeous.

Some of the looks at Style Sensation, just gorgeous outfits from a variety of stores.

If you are looking for a centre that not only has fantastic brands in one roof, but organised activities on a regular basis then Athlone Town Centre is the place for it. Without its a shopping mecca of the midlands and they are constantly growing and increasing their brands and stores…now currently penciling in my next visit!! Pic below is the aftermath results of “every” visit to the Centre!


Until next time

River Island Autumn Winter 2016 #RIAW16

FashionFashion and Beauty Blog


Hey Ladies

So last week, I had the opportunity to get a peek at the new Autumn Winter range for River Island.

It was stunning, For Autumn Winter 2016 River Island have created a new and exciting collection with Opulent fabrics featuring throughout expect lots of pastel colours to break up the moody colour palette of greens, reds, blacks and navy.


For this collection there’s a broad array of prints from animal, to floral, striped to tartan adds a fun and youthful edge.
A  Victoriana inspired DECADENCE is stylish and elegant with a unique and contemporary spin.


A dark story of bottle greens, oxblood reds and khakis are contrasted with pastel pink and peach accents.



Prints are key, with paisley and vintage florals worn head to toe. Luxe fabrics of faux fur, velvet and lace add texture whilst ruffled layers create volume.


Dresses take on a glamorous approach with high necklines, cold shoulders and floaty hems. Leopard print coats and Victoriana blouses are paired with candy pink buckle boots for a feminine feel with a slight 70s influence.



For the evening, metallics come out to play in the form of sequins, knee high boots and full length dresses.


Unusual colour combinations of earthy tones are mixed with bright yellows and pastels. Textures of frayed tweed, fringing, studs and embroidery add a tough girl dimension to the collection.



Outerwear is key with bombers, bikers, shearling lined denim jackets and overshirts worn over A-line mini dresses to create a wearable collection for a cool daytime look. Tartan, polka dots and leopard prints are worn clashed and co-ordinated.



DSC_0818Theres a 90s influence capturing clean masculine dressing with a sporty twist. The bold colour palette of cobalt blue, white and grey are clashed with bolts of orange and red.


Tracksuit jackets, crop tops, jumpsuits and bodies provide a youthful element whilst trousers take on a loose fit for a relaxed approach.


Accessories and Footwear oozes 70’s vibes and chokers are here to stay!



We had a fabulous day and I am so excited for the collection to land into stores in the next few months

Until next time
