Fashion Review: The Bodysuits

Other ViewOther View

Bodysuits have slowly but surely become a massive trend in the last few months. I also have become an avid shopper when it comes to the bodysuit, there’s just something so sleek and sophisticated about them.

Above are images of two bodysuits I myself ordered of the website and I absolutely love them, except for the fact that they are super low cut and unfortunately I do not have the cleavage to pull them off 😦

However all was not lost as I quickly recovered my old Junior Cert sewing kit from the back of my wardrobe and set myself the task of making the neckline of the bodysuits much more socially appropriate 😉 The end result was much more satisfactory.

What I really like about bodysuits, is their versatility. You can pair them with jeans, joggers, short, skirts, and they will always make your outfit look super trendy. If the bodysuits are low cut like the above, accessorize! Big chunky necklaces can often suit these bodysuits perfectly.

Missguided can sometimes be a bit pricey however, and if I’m honest the quality isn’t always the best, but having said that the website would still be one of the first places I would go for last minute outfit inspiration.

Thankfully stores are picking up on this fashion trend rather quickly and more affordable retailers such as Pennys and Forever 21 are now stocking up on the bodysuits to get in on their current demand. Only yesterday I flew into Forever 21 and came out with yet another bodysuit (pictured below courtesy of the Forever 21 website) for €11! I just loved the zip detail instantly jazzing up any outfit.

Not only did I manage the above cheap splurge but I then ran into Pennys and picked up another bodysuit for €11, its a sleeveless, black and white striped, high neck bodysuit which is probably one of the most comfortable bodysuits I own (picture of this bodysuit is up on my instagram account).

So bearing all this information in mind, my advice when buying a bodysuit is to shop around as there are quite often cheaper and more comfortable options right under your nose!

Make-Up Review: Urban Decay: Naked Palette 2

This is without a doubt my favourite eye shadow palette of all time! For years I have been using the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2, and for years I have been trying to find other products that can compete with it but to no avail.

What I love about this product, is its longevity. Not only does the eyeshadow stay on all night without needing to be topped up, the palette itself lasts for years! I received the Naked Palette two as a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas in 2013 and I’m still using the exact same palette. It is therefore a great investment!

The other thing I love about the naked palettes, is the colours they use. The palettes are designed to match your skin tone, Naked 2 would be the palette that best suits my skin tone. The palette comes with a super easy to use eyeshadow brush. One end has a wide brush to apply your eyeshadow base colour, whereas the other end has a more narrow brush to reach those awkward areas such as the inner part of the eyelid.

This palette will set you back €47, however I am a personal believer in the policy ‘quality over price’. This product is excellent quality and as mentioned above because it lasts so long it is totally worth every penny.

The palettes can be purchased in any Debenhams store in Ireland and also online on
