Where did that weekend go?! 

On Friday I was up early to head into Twitter Dublin, to give a talk on nutrition. Twitter is holding a vegan week, beginning next week, and I was delighted to share my tips and passion for plant-based eating. 

I couldn’t have had a warmer welcome from them, and I hope it will help some of the audience to stay on track next week!

I wore a white crepe blazer with slouchy sleeves, ā‚¬69.95 from Zara, grey distressed denim jeans, ā‚¬29.95 from Zara, a blue silk top from Uniqlo ā‚¬20.69, and silver shoes bought from Topshop a couple of years ago. The Snow White phone cover is from Glitz n Pieces šŸ™‚

Saturday morning was an early start to hit the road and make it to Hotel Kilkenny for 10am, for Lisa Fitzpatrick’s Kilkenny Fashion Fix.

I wore a white dress by Self-Portrait from Cari’s Closet and Betty and Biddy Edith earrings, ā‚¬16.00.

My tan is Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan in dark, ā‚¬7.99, and it’s the only tan I’ve ever tried that I can put on the morning of an event and know that it won’t rub off on my clothes or begin to smell. I love it!

Lisa did her talk on fashion, diet, lifestyle and shared her favourite tips and tricks. Then I took to the stage for my talk on health, diet, lifestyle and sugar addiction…

It was great to catch up with Mark O’Keeffe, owner of Brown Sugar, who did a brilliant hair and make-up demo with his glam squad onstage at the event. 

Fashion Fix goes to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Galway next weekend for the final event on May 30th – check out all the ticket details here if you’re interested in joining us šŸ˜‰

I wore this navy Torino coat from Paul Costelloe Living Studio, ā‚¬295 from Dunnes Stores. I love the clean, tailored cut and bought it as a piece that I knew I would wear time and time again. The nude quilted bag is from Russell and Bromley, ā‚¬275. The dress underneath is from Zara but a purchase from a few years ago. I liked the red and cream block colours underneath the navy!

I did my own make-up for each event and used two of my favourite products at the moment:

The Smashbox Contour Kit, ā‚¬44 from Boots, which comes complete with an angled brush and simple-to-use instructions on where exactly to place the darkest brown contour colour, the lighter brown bronzer and the highlighter for cheek and brow bones…

Razor-sharp cheekbones will be yours in a matter of minutes!

The second product is this MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Cheeky Bronze, which is a gorgeous golden bronzer, which gives your skin a healthy sun-kissed glow, no matter how pale you are. It’s velvet-smooth and brushes on easily, plus it’s a product that can be gradually built up to get your desired colour. It’s definitely going to be a summer make-up staple for me!
