Emma Louise Connolly is well know for her signature style and commitment to spreading positivity on her social media channels. 

Boasting over 300k Instagram followers, the model and YouTuber is turning her sartorially savvy hands to a brand new venture – the creation of her own upcoming fashion brand. 

Despite working extensively on her home renovations with fiancee Oliver Proudlock, ELC is taking the time to create another project.

Speaking exclusively to SHEmazing about the possibility of launching her own brand, Emma Louise said: 'It's in the pipeline!'

'I've thought about doing it for probably about 7 or 8 years, and I fee like I'm now at the point where I've almost got the vision together.'

'I think because there's so much inspiration, so many choices, so many things that you can go down, and for me comfort is a very big thing so I wanted it to reflect my personality, I wanted it to be something that everybody can wear, that everyone can style themself.'

'It's going to be a unisex brand, Oli (Proudlock) and I are going to come together on it and we're going to work together as a couple and as two designers, creating something cool.'

Touching on how she originally became interested in fashion, Emma Louise detailed that she has been into fashion her whole life.

'I don't really remember how I got into it, I just think it's something that is always around you. I just loved it, I studied design and manufacturing at college and then I went on to uni, I was a buyer in a boutique for a while, it was just always around me and I was sort of a magnet to it.'

'As a model you're exposed to fashion quite a lot, and it grew from there to be honest. Being creative with people, it's so cool when creative minds come together.'

The model, who was in Dublin for her very first time to attend the launch of Magnum's new White Chocolate & Cookies creation, also explained how she manages to be so positive when it comes to social media and maintaining a positive outlook on life.

'I think sometimes its very easy to lose sight of more important things, because we're constantly on social media which is not real life – you then have this expectation of something which limits what you can achieve or your own happiness because you're never as good as someone you see online, and trust me, the online stuff is bullsh*t.'

'You choose your destiny. Don't overthink it, don't try and be something you're not because there is no longevity in that and the bubble pops.'

So when will Emma be launching her brand? No word yet – but we're certain it will be as huge a success as all of her other ventures.

The newest pizza style is a rich, hearty full-flavoured meal starring a Mediterranean-inspired flavour combination that’s tried and tested.

The tracking shows the location of your driver from store to door, and the pizzamakers are touring Ireland with a giant GPS pin as well as handing out hundreds of pizzas this week. Nom.

This week, from today until Friday, 1 March, people who spot the Domi-Pin will win one of the new Catalan Chicken and Chorizo pizzas on the spot…life just can't get any better. 

The four-foot-high Domi-Pin is set to appear all around Ireland, with the Domino's team giving away delicious treats to pizza lovers nationwide.

The GPS tracker is the first of its kind in Ireland, and gives you the ability to track your pizzas all the way from the oven to your gaff. The tracker opens to a live map at the delivery stage so you can track the progress of your driver.

There's even a countdown, so anyone on a time limit can prepare for the tasty arrival. We are ridiculously excited to try and test the new technology, is anyone else suddenly starving?

We're all aware that Urban Decay have garnered an absolute CULT around their legendary make-up palettes. 

We can all remember the mass hysteria when their Naked palettes were released; we'd never seen the likes of it, and we all just HAD to acquire one.

Now the giant cosmetics brand are offering the chance to snatch a FREE Naked Reloaded palette worth €44 (£38), but you'll need to be prepared.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Urban Decay Cosmetics (@urbandecaycosmetics) on

They've just launched their Naked Reloaded palettes after the huge success of their debut Naked 1, 2 and 3 and have since added the Naked Cherry, Naked Smoky and Naked Fire Palettes.

Now Urban Decay have stated that they will gift the first 20 customers to walk through the doors of selected stores on Monday a FREE Naked Reloaded palette.

That's right, the claws will well and truly be out to play that day. You need to bring any other Urban Decay palette of yours to swap, however. Seems fair to us.

The American brand removed the Naked palette from stores last August and effectively brought the beauty world into a state of grief.

The new take on their classic has since been offered, with 12 gorgeously glitter shades from warm browns to beige neutrals, rouge golds and sparkly whites.

Urban Decay are celebrating the first day of the Naked Reloaded palette hitting shelves officially with the giveaway, and we're expecting MAJOR queues to form from the break of dawn on Monday,

Get your EP tents ready for camping ladies, it's gonna be a bumpy ride when the doors open.

Resident 'It Girl' and fiancé of none other than Bieber himself, Hailey is one of the most sought after supermodels in town.

CEO of the company, Umar Kamani, has revealed how delighted he is with having Hailey as the new face, and we don't blame him:

“We are so excited to be working with Hailey on our Christmas campaign. After such a successful year for the brand there wasn’t anyone else better suited to see our 2018 out with a bang. I have huge admiration for Hailey and her career as one of the most successful models in the industry."

If you're anything like us, you adore PrettyLittleThing – and it has some fabulous autumn collections in tow. We were so excited to see their debut.

Their End of Summer bash last week was themed pink and the party was definitely embracing it, with eye-catching sparkly disco tops and pink furry dresses dotted throughout the crowd.

And what a crowd it was.

From designers to popstars, the guest list was hot and they mingled together, sipping vodka cocktails and nibbling on bite-size treats.

The Saturdays singer and fashion designer Vanessa White was there looking gorgeous, and eager to share about her insider fashion tips and what she’s looking forward to for A/W 18.

When it comes to what’s next for A/W 18, it was all about relaxed vibes.

“I’m a big fan of athleisure vibes, whether that’s in the day or even in the evening with a pair of heels and a nice bag. So I’m looking forward to seeing what the new key AW18 athleisure and co-ord pieces.”

Rocking a fabulous pink shell suit skirt, she spilled on how to get the perfect Insta snap.

‘’Lighting is always key,’’ she said. ‘’I’m also a big fan of plants. The more the better.’’

Her must-have travel accessory? “I have an old-school leather Miu Miu bum-bag that I tend to take everywhere with me and it’s great because it goes with really casual outfits but also looks great with more glam styles.”

The designer did warn against trying to follow new fashion trends too hard. Instead, she suggests that one should dress to suit her body type and style.

“I just always think it’s best to wear things that suit you, rather than just following a trend. If you naturally wear styles that are really hot in terms of trends, then that’s just a bonus."

Also, present at the event were TOWIE stars Chloe Sims and Vas J. Morgan. Both British celebrities have signed to go on Celebs Go Dating this year.

The two have been ‘best mates’ for a while now and are excited to support each other during their dating experience.

Chloe dished about the type of guy she will be looking for on the show, saying the mystery man must be “as cool as Vas.”

“I’m not being short-ist, but I want someone as tall as Vas. So they’ve got to be tall, have a bit of game, and have a bit of banter,” she revealed.  

“They’ve got to be me basically,” Vas laughed. “Just the hetero-version.”

When asked if she had any dating advice for other mums or women, Chloe replied, “if I’ve got agents speaking to my husband I definitely can’t advise anyone. Go on Celebs Go Dating! I haven’t got any advice.

“I’m rubbish at dating basically. I’m rubbish with men unless they’re gay. […] I’ve got a daughter and I’m blessed.

“But I haven’t got a boyfriend. We’ll see, maybe by October it might be different.”

Influencers and models enjoyed the event, looking stunning in their PLT pieces. Like Vanessa, we seriously can’t wait for the new autumn line.

If you’re looking for a drop-dead gorgeous summer outfit or the perfect pink crop top and trouser set, PrettyLittleThing’s website is the only place you should be checking out.

"I trust this latest addition to our public transport will encourage people to get out if their cars and join in the battle to ease city centre congestion and contribute to tackling our climate change challenge," he asserted.

Mr Varadkar believes that the new line, which will go into operation at 2pm this afternoon, is a testament to the determination of the country calling it 'a symbol of what can be done even in dark times. ​​​​​​"We built the Luas during some of our darkest years economically.”

The Luas Cross City facilitates a connection to the Luas red line, while another connects the city centre with the Maynooth Commute line at Broombridge station in Cabra.

Here at SHEmazing HQ, there's nothing we love more than a good Irish success story.

Whether it's food, fashion, or beauty, our home grown products are up there with the best of them, and one woman who knows this all to well is entrepreneur extraordinaire, Marissa Carter.

Marissa's cult tanning brand, Cocoa Brown, is a favourite among beauty lovers at home and abroad and now it looks the beloved Irish brand is headed for Russia.

Following on from a successful Canadian launch, this is the first of three new markets the award-winning tan will launch in before Christmas.

Marissa took to Instagram today to share the news: “Never ever let anyone tell you to slow down. You grow or you die in business and sometimes ambition makes others feel uncomfortable,” she wrote.

“Those who love you want you to be realistic so you’re not disappointed when you fail. Those who don’t like you want you to stop moving so fast so they can catch up. Don’t listen to any voice but your own when you’re setting your goals.”

Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter will now be available in 21 countries and over 15,000 stores worldwide.

We really are taking over, aren't we?

She already has a best-selling range of nail polishes, as well as a mega-hit contour palette.

And now – finally – Suzanne Jackson has released strip lashes, so (fingers crossed!) we can get the blogger’s gorgeously full look ourselves.

Yes, under the SOSU brand, the 31-year-old Dubliner has created not one but TWO lash collections – Human Hair Lashes, which boasts eight different varieties, and 3D Luxury Silk Lashes, of which there are four different types.  

The Human Hair lashes (€5.95 per set) are lightweight, of premium quality and enable beauty lovers to create quick and easy everyday looks.

While the 3D Luxury Silk Lashes are notably more costly at €19.95 a pair, they come in more dramatic designs and, once cared for, can be reused up to 20 times.

Speaking of her new venture, Suzanne said: “The initial SOSU Lash journey began three years ago but for me the range had to be perfect – a premium lash collection offering plenty of choice and catering for everyone.”

According to sosu.ie, the Ella, Gigi and Katie lashes – all of which are from the Human Hair collection – are already sold out.

Currently, the other nine lash styles are still available online.

SOSU Human Hair Lashes cost €5.95 and SOSU 3D Luxury Silk Lashes retail at €19.95.  SOSU Lashes are available from selected pharmacies nationwide and www.sosu.ie.

Makeup mongul Kylie Jenner has been teasing her followers all summer with suggestions that something special is about to be added to her already ultra-successful Kylie Cosmetics line and at long last her secret has been exposed – welcome the Kyshadow kit.

The teen announced yesterday that she will be extending her already lucrative makeup business by launching her debut line of eyeshadow palettes.

The first nine-piece kit in the Kyshadow range is due for release on kyliecosmetics.com today and will feature a selection of nude, brown, orange and gold shimmer tones.

 

 

The reality star – who claims she has been using the Bronze Palette everyday for the last five or six months – used both her personal app and social media profiles to reveal her latest creation.

And proving she really does have the makeup skills to back her brand, Kylie filmed a full makeup tutorial using the palette and posted it to her Snapchat account.

While we have yet to physically see the first Kyshadow kit, Kylie’s swatches and snaps would suggest that the eyeshadows included are very nicely pigmented.
