Ah Penneys – our go-to high street haven for all things affordable and on trend. 

The fashion HQ has been giving us some seriously stylist pieces of late – but one in particular has caught our eye. 

When we spotted this plaid mini-dress in store, we knew we had to snap it up before every blogger in town got their hands on it. 

Dress €16. PVC cap €6.00, Boots €17, all Penneys, Turtleneck €16.59 ASOS

The gorgeous mini dress comes in a similar print to that coat we've seen all over Instagram, and the addition of the quadrant of side buttons is an adorable bonus detail. 

We're also all about the wrap-over style – making this piece super versatile. 

For something a little edgier when we head out for drinks, we're teaming it with this PVC baker boy cap and yellow suede boots, throwing the dress over a slim-fit black turtle neck. 

Dress €16, Boots €17.00, Backpack €14.00 and Coat €28.00, all Penneys

For day time, we're opting to add a white t-shirt underneath, black tights, and some plain black booties. 

A cosy suede biker jacket looks gorgeous oversized, and red accessories tie in to the subtle hint of red in the plaid. 

Best of all, this versatile dress is only €16.00 and it's in stores right now. 



Start stocking up on fake tan. It seems the warm and sunny days of summer are officially at an end.

Autumn has arrived and with it comes cool temperatures and light winds.

Ireland will be experiencing highs of 14 degrees in some areas, the coldest it has been in two months, according to Met Éireann.

On the west coast, rain is expected to start on the Atlantic coast before sweeping inland across the rest of the country overnight.

Temperatures will reach lows between 5 and 9 degrees tonight with light breezes.

Today and tomorrow is expected to alternate between sunny spells and scattered showers. So, at least we will not have to suffer through consistent downpour.

For Dublin, however, temperatures will be slightly higher than that of the western and northern regions, reaching a high of 18 or 19 degrees tomorrow.

However, don’t count on outdoor plans this weekend. Although it will be warm and humid, Met Éireann predicts on-and-off-again showers with moderate winds on Saturday.

The North will have a wetter weekend and can expect heavier showers.

Although Sunday will clear the clouds a bit in the afternoon, scattered showers will occupy the eastern counties with a high of 17-22 degrees.

We will miss clear skies and summer sunshine, but hopefully the rainfall with start replenishing the Irish Water shortage.

Who would have thought we needed more rain in Ireland?

Overall, we should prepare for a humid, rainy weekend with slightly cooler temperatures than it has been of late.

As of now, next week is predicted to have the same forecast as this weekend, with dryer intervals in the east and south.



Our absolute favourite thing about the autumn months is the cosy, comfortable clothes. 

From trusty ankle boots and fur coats, to scarves and knitted jumpers – we seriously love an autumnal wardrobe.

At the moment, we are scanning the high street, picking up gorgeous bits and bobs as we go (our bank account is paying the price!)

We have seen SO many stunning knitted jumpers, that are stylish and cool, but also warm and cosy – a winning combo. 

Check out our favourites:

1. Fringed Cable Knit Sweater, Mango.

2. Patch Embroidered Jumper, Topshop.

3. Oversized Chenille Sweater, Zara.


4. Jumper in Oversized with V Neck, ASOS

5. Weekday Balloon Sleeve Knit, ASOS.

Goodbye summer, we hardly knew you! 

As the days get shorter (and colder), we can't help but be kind of excited about the chillier months to come. 

Warm coats, hot drinks, and all-round cosiness is what this time of year is all about.

Oh, and warm and wonderful manicures – because we said so. 

Nothing beats a fresh pair of nails, especially when they're a lovely autumnal shade. 

Check these out, my lovelies:

1. This AMAZING ombre.

We're squealing! 

2. The PERFECT nude.

Simple, and gorgeous. 


How amazing are @sophie_murray1s nails

3. Green with envy. 

How cool are these?


Three easy coats, no top coat, of "You Goth to be Kidding Me" from @pepperpotpolish Gothic Family Jewels collection. This was a little more crelly like, so it did need that third coat. Such a pretty deep emerald! . . These five vampy cremes are launching September 13 at noon PST for $10 each or $45 for the full set. But!! Spend $20 or more and you can use the code PEPPERPOT for an extra 15% off, bringing it down to $38.25 for the collection!! . . **Bonus happy rant** I love, love, LOVE wearing dark colors and these all are so dark they're nearly black in some lighting… Know what I mean? But what's the worst part about dark polishes? REMOVAL. I avoid them because I hate the mess they make when it's time to take them off. These babies, however, do not cause a scene. I removed a six day old mani from all ten fingers with three cotton balls and zero curse words . I was over the moon! I rarely post things like this in my descriptions, so I hope that shows you how big of a deal it was for me. Dark colors that come off without struggle = AMAZZZZZINGNESS. . . #prsample #pepperpotpolish #gothicfamilyjewels #gothicnails #gothvibes #fallvibes #darknails #vamp #vampypolish #greennails #yougothtobekiddingme

Summer has drawn to a close (judging by that weather outside) and our minds have turned to the autumnal style season.

Penneys might be renowned for it's epic chunky knitwear and designer dupe jackets, but this season the store is stepping up their game in the accessories department. 

From metallic glitter heels to tassled blogger-esque earrings, we need it all:

Sequin Bagpack €16.00,  Rings (set) €6.00

Bee belt €4.00, Black Sandals €19.00

 Earrings €4.00, Tassle Earrings €3.00

 Silver Boots €17.00, Heels €24.00

Red Pearl Trainers €18.00, Earrings €4.00



Scrolling through the Penneys tag on Instagram, we couldn't help but notice one particular item popping up again and again. 

Whether it's a trendy blogger or just one of the gals, there is a particular dress we just can't seem to get enough of. 

Penneys have completely hit the sartorial nail on the head once again with this one – and it's in stores now.

The dress is this gorgeous yellow number, sprinkled with burgundy florals – perfect for autumn dressing. 

From the high neck to the flattering shift cut, we're beyond obsessed. 

And don't even get us started on that stylish sleeve ruffle detail.

It's officially the new 'the star dress.' 

And at sixteen quid, you can't really go wrong.

If only they had it in multiple colours…



This is not a drill – Zara have just dropped their latest collection and pay day is just around the corner. 

The A/W collection from the high street haven is awash with designer-inspired accents, and we're obsessed with the fringed, feathered, velvet and embellished textures.

From patchwork knitwear to pearl-encrusted winter boots, we're so ready to step into the new season (even if it is still summer.)

Autumn florals dress €39.95, Embroidered blouse with bow back €39.95, Blue boots €69.95

Heron print kimono €59.95,  Patchwork jumper €39.95 Heron print shorts €29.95

Penneys has come through this season, with a selection of the most delectable A/W coats we've seen in a long time. 

The designer-inspired pieces look high-end AF, and we're struggling to choose our favourite style. 

While this rainy day would be the perfect time to invest in a new coat, these pieces won't be in store until the end of August, so we have a bit of time to pick our trophy coat for the upcoming Autumn season. 

 Check coat €40.00, PU aviator  €40.00

 Brown faux fur collar coat €50.00, Shearling Coat €30.00

Slogan back padded  jacket €25.00,  Pink shaggy faux fur coat €45.00



Summer may have just arrived, but the high street is already gearing up for the style season ahead.

High street bargain haven Penneys is already choosing the trends for next season, and we're loving what's coming into stores over the coming months.

She mightn’t know the date of her best friend’s birthday, but Gigi Hadid is well able to choose the perfect autumnal hairstyle.

The normally blonde model seems to have veered away from her signature Cali style as she has been pictured sporting a notably darker hue.

Bronde has effectively bypassed ombre to become A/W16’s prettiest shade. 

And since it suits a variety of skin tones, is easy to maintain and allows wearers to gently transition between seasons, it’s easy to see why.


Thank you @luigiandiango & @anna_dello_russo for one of my favorite cover stories!!!!!!  @voguejapan

While it is still unclear as to whether or not Gigi will stick with her new bronde ‘do, we think the 21-year-old’s hair is an ideal shade for those looking to boost their manes with some subtle Fall feels.

There’s nothing like a new candle to help a home make the reluctant transition from Summer to Autumn/Winter.

But while the darker evenings already have us craving rhubarb and blackberry-type scents, we can’t say we’ve ever wished our rooms smelled like laptops.

A South Carolinian Apple accessory store is selling “New Mac” scented candles to help people get their favourite computer smell without actually having to invest in another MacBook.

As random they are, the unique candles – which contain hints of mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin and sage – have been a huge hit with Twelve South’s customers, with the first batch of New Mac scents selling out in just one day.

According to the store’s website, the $24 soy wax candles will be back in stock later this month.


Autumn is finally here! 

The leaves are falling from the trees, hats and scarves are finally acceptable attire AND the pumpkin spice plague is back. 

I call it a plague because it seems as though everywhere I look WHAM… there's a pumpkin flavoured something. 

The latest ridiculous use of pumpkin spice is actually brilliant in a weird way. 

Youtube nail artist twi_star recently posted a video on her channel, and it has the Internet TALKING.

Angel posted a video of her using pumpkin spice as a coating on her nails, kind of like a weird cinnamon flavoured glitter? 

Anyway, the results are gross, and yet we can't help but think there are people out there who will do this! 

What are your thoughts ladies?
