Five days until Christmas! Is it just me or does it not feel like the beginning of December? Anyway here are some photos I quickly took last week before I started my Christmas shopping. I only just finished my shopping today, it's been my first day off in over a week! I used my Blackberry for photos, lazy!

Love this leopard print coat. I bought it in the Topshop sale last winter and have only worn it once or twice. Definitely need to wear it more often this winter! The jumper is a vintage find from two years ago, I really like the detail on it. Both my jeans and boots are Topshop.

I have a question for you all, how do you feel about creepers? Specifically these ones or this pair? They're really growing on me!

Love this new t shirt I got from River Island. My boyfriend has one very similar which I loved on him. So when I saw his I decided I wanted it. Mine is from the Women's section though. I got a size 8 but I think it's really big fitting.

Excuse the chipped nails, I did them on Friday but decided since they matched my t shirt I should include them in this post.

Christmas Shopping with eBay.ie Gift Hunter Tab

08 December 2011
As much as I love to shop, especially at Christmas time, it can be really difficult battling through the crowds to find the perfect gift for friends and family.

I'm more of an online shopper, browsing through websites in my favourite leopard print pyjamas is much more my scene. I also love stumbling across unique one off pieces you just won't find on the high street. That's why when I heard about eBay.ie's new Gift Hunter tab on Facebook I wanted to share it with you all.


eBay.ie has released a nifty & fun Facebook tab to help anyone who’s a bit lost in the gifting sense. Meet Gift Hunter. A fun way to get some gifting inspiration. eBay.ie has designed four rooms in the Gift Hunting House, each room encapsulating a different person in your life.

Step into the sitting room to find a selection of great gifts for mums & dads, such as winter warming trenches & North Face jackets. The appetite of gadget gizmos can also be satisfied in this room with the latest iPad & an amazing Canon digital SLR.

The pink room is awash with girly goodies that will brighten up any little girl’s Christmas day. Whether it’s a very affordable Justin Bieber poster from €4.99 or a comfy bean bag from €44.99, there is something for the little loved one in our lives.

The blue room is full of boyish boldness & noise. Jump high in Jeremy Scott’s high tops or make some beats on a junior drum set from €220.00. Get festive in a Christmas jumper or give the gift of racing with a remote control car.

Get cooking in the kitchen with Donal Skehan’s cookbook but don’t forget to put on a novelty apron first! Check your retro wall clock to make sure your Skehan mince pies are not burning. Make a juice whilst you wait and finally serve on beautiful Denby delft. And don’t forget to make sure you wash your hands with Molton Brown after petting the dog in the pet basket.


Take a tour around our fun filled house & fill under your tree with eBay.ie

Here are some gifts I found using the Gift Hunter tab. I probably should have searched for people other than myself though! How do you all get gift idea inspiration and what are you hoping to receive for yourself under the Christmas tree?

I'm so busy with college I don't even know how nearly a month has passed without posting on my blog, sorry!

Horrible wet windy weather today, and seeing as I had to trek into college I decided the only option was to try out a bun in my hair. I actually like it! Always love them on other girls, just too lazy to try them out in my own hair.

Love this scarf, I bought it a few years ago in Topman and am only wearing it now. Is it just me or does Topman have the nicest knitwear and hats at the moment? So jealous of a hat my boyfriend recently bought there..

Printed my final image for photography today, will show you all soon!

P.S What do you all think of the vintage skirt my lovely Mommy picked up for me today? It reminds me of Versace print! It can make up for all the Versace for H&M I missed out on.

Hi! Decided it was time to introduce you to one of my newest biker jackets I bought in September during the ASOS LFW discount period. I looove it! I think it's a little big but the size is growing on me (no pun intended!).

I got my lovely Daddy to bring these vintage levi cut off shorts (that I myself chopped up!) to his tailor. They were about a size 14 so I got them taken in and I'm amazed with how well he did the job. It was only €10 too, such a bargain.

Last but not least, how nice are these Topshop glitter boots? I'm afraid to wear them incase all the glitter falls off them. They're making me want a pair of silver glitter Litas so badly for nights out. You can never have too much glitter and sequins!

Wearing a very Topshop filled outfit today for college. Managed to some how take a few photos before I run off to work. I've been soo busy with college and work and LIFE I need to get into the habit of taking photos for my blog again.

Got the infamous Topshop Allegra boots during the 20% student discount period, I'm so happy with them. I think Oxblood is a bit different from the usual black boot rut we all seem to get stuck in.

I made a new blog image (well sort of new, I added it a few weeks ago!), what do you think? I also joined Twitter because I bought myself a Blackberry! You can find a link to follow me on my menu. I will have to take some photos of my bling cover I bought for it, multi coloured diamond zebra print.

Off to work now x

Just a really quick photo of what I wore to college today, the light was completely gone by the time I got home so I had to settle for the only photo that turned out half decent.

Just to let anyone from Dublin know River Island in the Illac Centre (The Flagship store!) are having a 20% student discount night next tuesday (11th October). There's going to be goody bags and drinks too so you should definitely attend, I know I will be.

With the weather so horrible today I decided it was time to wrap up a bit. I really wanted to wear a blouse with these new cordouroy baby pink shorts from American Apparel. Instead I came to a compromise and wore a shirt under my jumper. I think I'll be doing this more often during Winter.

Can't believe it's September already. I originally wanted these boots in the taupe colour, but they never got them in stock so I decided I prefered them in black. I got another pair of heeled taupe boots from Topshop instead.

Looking forward to buying a pleated leather skirt from River Island and a striped bodycon midi skirt. What are you hoping to add to your wardrobe for winter?

I was waiting for my boyfriend to arrive & decided to take a few photos of my new Jeffrey Campbell Litas, as you do. They are one of the most comfortable pair of high shoes that I own, so happy I finally got my hands on a pair.

Got these sunglasses for €4.70 in the Urban Outfitters sale, such a bargain I love the round shape.

I wasn't actually planning on taking photos today so excuse my messy hair! Wearing two of my latest purchases, the floral Kimono and the wine jersey maxi skirt. I'm soo happy I bought them because I was a bit unsure at the time. Really loving maxi skirts at the moment for day & night wear, so easy to throw on & pretend like you've made an effort.

I'm a big fan of mixing prints & patterns together. For me stripes & leopard print go with almost anything. What do you think about mixing patterns?

Just had to share my happiness about finally winning the bidding on a Moschino belt today, I'm a very happy girl!
