What I Wore | Studio Eight Jumpsuit

This is going to be a nice short and sweet post from me today! Today was a busy day, but I wanted to be both stylish and comfortable. I had to go to work but then be suitable dressed for an evening function too, so it was a bit of a tricky one. I knew what I had to throw on however. My new Jumpsuit from Studio 8
New Plus Size brand (Sister company of Phase Eight) Studio Eight has launched today bringing y'all more choice for the Plus Size market. Currently their size selection is 16-24. They're on the pricer side, but you get what you pay for. I'm all for choice and it's great that some Plus Size women have the choice to wear higher quality and well made clothes.
I chose to rock this Navy Jumpsuit and my boss immediately commented on it when I walked in - in a good way of course! I knew today was going to be one long ass day so I wanted to be comfortable and look chic at the same time. I had to order the Navy Zena Jumpsuit*, you could call it love at first sight. I'm wearing the size 16 and it's literally more comfortable then a pair of PJ's!
 I added a pair of nude sandals and a gold and pearl necklace to give it a bit of a lift as well as one of my fav Speedy's. To finish it off I wore my new favourite sunglasses from Tiger Stores that set me back a grand total of €4! I can't fault this Jumpsuit at all. It's absolutely gorgeous. Although at €150 it's on the more expensive side BUT this will last you for years! It would also be perfect for travelling too!

Date Night with Yours Clothing

Now that I'm a working woman my wardrobe needs to be more geared towards items of clothes I can mix and match. I've too many pairs of ripped jeans and oversized T-shirts and not enough of "nice" clothes to take me from work to the bar etc. etc. Yours Clothing came to my rescue a few weeks ago and sent me this beautiful top, and I've worn it a few times already! A testimony really as I like to play favourites with my clothes!
This Sheer Dip Back Shirt* is the perfect addition to your Spring/Summer wardrobe. I paired this for a casual date night look. It's sheer so it's a little bit sexy, without giving too much away. I'm a sucker for floral prints so this was obviously my top of choice. I'm wearing a size 16 and it's a good fit. If you're between sizes I'd suggest sizing down as it's nice and flowy. If you were to wear it for work I'd pair it with slim trousers and just slip on a little tank top underneath as it is quite sheer. 
I paired it with these jeans from trusty Penney's. If you're in between sizes and they're the best place to shop. They're cheap as chips at €13 for a pair of skinnies, that are actually skinny. I'm wearing the 14 here and they fit nice and snug. I like my jeans tight, it gives my non-existent arse a bit of a lift! I have a few pairs of these and they wash well. They're not as good or as stretchy as my favourite Topshop jeans, but they're not bad either! Yours Clothing also do some great jeans. They're a nice fit but with plenty of stretch to keep you comfortable. I have this pair:Indigo Blue Stretch Jeans that I wore to death until they became too big!
I love the High-Low cut of this top. Now I do think the High-Low has been done to death now over the past 5 years, and think it should be laid to rest for the most part but this top is so pretty and the slight gradual back just gives the top something a bit different and makes it perfect and flirty for a date night. For accessories I of course threw on a statement necklace and threw on some flats. I think for a casual date night flats are perfect. You'll be comfortable the whole night and if you end up going to the cinema after dinner you won't feel over dressed!

The Body Shop | Virgin Mojito Range

Just in time for Summer - Ireland do you hear that? The Body Shop has recently launched a Summer collection called "Virgin Mojito". I'm a fan of all sorts of Mojito's so I was thrilled to get my grubby mitts on some of the collection. It's the perfect scent for Summer and has be excited for going away- when that will be God only knows ;) On first sniff I was instantly transported to the beach, sipping a cocktail and watching the sun go down. This uplifting energising fragrance is all you need for Summer. This legitimately smells like a Mojito just minus the sugary scent. If you're a lover of Mojito like me, then keep reading!
Body Scrub*
I love a good body scrub. I suffer a lot with dry skin and I'm always looking for something that grabs my attention. This was the first product I used and it was a great introduction to the range. I let the shower warm up and I scrub myself pretty much head to toe. I find using this on dry skin gives you a stronger effect. If you've got sensitive skin, I'd try using it in the shower on wet skin. After I'm suitably scrubbed I hop into the shower and wash it off. My skin was left a little bit red but that's no biggie, all in all my skin was left nice and soft and ready for some Body Butter to be applied. 
Body Butter
If you're acquainted with the Body Shop, then you're acquainted with their Body Butters. They've been a staple in my beauty stash for many, many years. Many other's have come and gone, but none keep me interested as much as these ones. They make your skin feel like a baby's bum and they all smell amazing. This particular body butter is definitely going to be my go to during the Summer. It's zesty, rich and deeply nourishing. I love to bang  this on after the shower and go to bed and I wake up with the softest skin known to man! The scent really pulls me in though. You're transported back to holiday's and let's face it, who doesn't want that?
Body Sorbet*
Okay first things first. This is NOT a shower gel. It's a body sorbet. Last week I was getting ready for work and I grabbed it and hopped into the shower, not thinking too much in my sleepy morning haze. It didn't lather as much as my normal shower gel, but it made my skin smell amazing so I thought nothing of it. I later found out that it wasn't a shower gel, but a moisturiser. It's a good thing I'm not a regular beauty blogger! Anyway this is the perfect product to pack for your holiday's. It's light, sinks into your skin quickly and again leaves your skin smelling incredible. It's a funny consistency for a moisturiser but it would be incredibly refreshing after a long day out in the sun. 

If you're a lover of fresh fragrances then check out The Body Shop - But hurry it's a limited collection. I'll fight you off for that scrub!
