OOTD: Cruella

Spots and Stripes


Few can deny the sheer levels of nostalgia evoked by anything Disney related -which is why when I saw that one of my favourite adorable online stores had collaborated with Disney to launch their latest collection, my heart jumped for joy.

I’ve never been exactly sure why, but when I was younger I used to always root for the villain in films rather than for the heroes. (I think maybe it might have something to do with the fact that villains always have cooler clothes.)

That’s why when a version of Cruella de Vil’s had been made, I just knew it had to be mine.

The coat is faux fur so don’t worry. I can assure you that no Dalmatians were harmed in the making of it!

Book Club: Japan!

Amazing Japanese Literature


Hey. It’s Mew and welcome to the second ever episode of book club here on my blog. ^_^

As I said in last month’s post, at the end of each month, I will be recommending some of my favourite stories and novels that I got to read throughout the month. And as each episode has a theme, this month we’re going to talk about Japan. I recently found out I would be going to Tokyo next year, so of course I had to channel my excitement by learning as much about the culture as possible. And what better what to do that then through books written by Japanese authors?

Are you ready? Let’s start!

I don’t know about you but I have always really had this thing with velvet. Whatever it is about the material, I just think that it is so rich, so luxurious and so unbelievably comfortable in the wintertime. It’s the perfect fabric for the cold weather and can make any outfit seem so much darker and enchanting, just by the very way it falls.

Today I came up with a few different looks styled all around this beautiful fabric. I also picked out some pieces that I really think you’ll love. Are you ready? Let’s start.

Too Faced Christmas in New York

Welcome to the Grand Hotel Café!


Christmas is coming! And lately I’ve really been enjoying all the sweet desserts and candy-coloured treats that seem to be popping up all over Dublin in preparation for the holiday season.

As a person with a seriously sweet tooth and an obsession with seasonal hot drinks of every variety, you can only imagine my delight when I came across this adorable little scented eyeshadow kit from Too Faced.

The makeup combines all the most loveable and enjoyable elements of Christmas from the mouth-watering aroma of sugar-coated macarons, luxury hot chocolates and shots of syrup in speciality lattes, not to mention a colour palette perfect for the festive season.
