Shopping Spree In Cork City | What I Bought


So today I went on a little shopping spree in Cork city and I picked up some fab bits. When I first arrived I was posting loads of photos to facebook of my favourite bits from different shops but then it got soooo hot, like 100 degrees and I was dressed for a much cooler Irish weather day so my plan changed from photograph everything to get what I want and go home!!

So my first stop was H&M. I love the bargains you can find in here. I know it's mostly casual stuff BUT sometimes that's good because you can accessorise lots. For example today I was looking for a top to match my ivory Cari's Closet tulle skirt and casual was perfect. A tulle skirt is dressy and fussy enough on it's own so you don't want to go OTT with the top.

So I picked up this little navy and white off the shoulder crop top. I love the nautical, french vibe to it. It will be stunning with high waisted jeans or crochet shorts later in Summer.


Also in H&M I got this super cute Je T'adore crop jumper. I love it with my tulle skirt but for a more casual look. 


I kinda randomly panic bought this crop top. It looks kinda neon pink but in person it is the most stunning peach shade. Originally I picked it up to wear with my tulle skirt to the Into The West Blogger Network Event in The G Hotel tomorrow BUT it photographs like a highlighter pink colour and that isn't really my style... It was only €4.99 so I will just wear it at home and stuff!!


After H&M I popped into TK Maxx which is a shop I always forget about in Cork. It's kinda in off the street and out of the way. I saw someones TK Maxx bag and though ''Ohh I must go there.'' Anyways I ran (not literally) but almost across the floor when I spotted this stunning monochrome maxi dress. It looks EXACTLY like one I had years ago that I got in NewLook and I loved it. I actually wore my old one on one of mine and Josh's first dates and he always says it was one of his favourite outfits on me. WEAK!! It was a total bargain at €12.99. I will get soooo much wear out of it this Summer. 


By the time I got to Penneys I was just so tired. I had looked in waaaay more stores than mentioned above but I didn't spot anything I loved. Penneys was manic busy so I just grabbed what I needed and left. I picked up a basic white handbag, some eyelashes, some cute bracelets and some underwear. You just can't leave Penneys without a new bra...it's the rules!!


The last shop of the day was to Hennessy's Hair And Beauty Supplies for some hairspray. I LOVE the massive ones that you can get in there. It is soooo much better value and you have it ages. I keep the tiny L'Oreal Elnett ones for my handbag then. Hennessy's now stock Crownbrush and the ''Love Sue'' brush sets. I should have taken a picture but I was too busy chatting the women that worked in there! 


Here are some other bits I thought were cute but didn't buy...

Before I headed home I visited my friend Karolina who works in Madison Lane in the Winthrop Arcade. Karolina is the eyebrow queen. Seriously!! If you are ever in Cork city get her to go your brows, you won't regret it!! My day finished up by randomly drinking champagne in Diamond Bridal!! I used to do owner Grace's nails when I worked in the city so I dropped in to stay hi. The decor in her shop is so gorgeous and she has sooo many beautiful dresses. 

So that was my day!
Chat ye soon! x
