It's a long way...

The girls & I got home at the weekend from a few days in Tipperary and with over 500 miles on the clock, I can confirm, it *is* a long way! We were in South Tipp first, where one of my sisters lives and then we headed over for a few days in North Tipp - it's a big county, with the journey between my two sisters taking an hour and a half.
But what did I wear (and buy) in Tipp? Outfits first and it was the smallest of capsules. Not really intentionally but the girls' stuff took up so much room in the suitcase, I was forced to pack lean...yeah, I know I could have brought another suitcase but it was such a laid back trip, I was happy to have one less thing to think about.
Jacket (similar now on sale!) & Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
Jeans - F&F at Tesco (wearing a size 8 - they are STRETCHY!)
Top - River Island
Sandals - H&M
Cross Body Bag - Yoshi
Maxi Dress - Onjenu (SS15)
Sandals & Cross Body Bag - as before
Jeans, Sunglasses & Bags - as before
Trainers - Adidas
Top - Next (sale)

and for the trip home...
Jeans - as before
White Vests (layered) - Primark
Scarf - New Look (bought in-store)
Sandals - Next (sale)

There was another iteration of the black top/jeans mix and I wore my black jersey maxi skirt too...but I didn't get a picture of either....sometimes you're just having too much fun!

On Friday evening, my sister offered to come into Limerick with me for a look in Penneys (Primark) as the one in Limerick is quite good. I was also looking to pick up some Cocoa Brown Rose Gold Goddess Oil - a limited edition that I'd heard about over on Snapchat. It's not being released in the UK until September so I was delighted to find some bottles of it left in Limerick.
It's a highlighter and a shimmer oil so you can use it pretty much anywhere on your body but I've seen people using it mostly on the collar bones/d├ęcolletage, the cheekbones and on legs...basicallyl anywhere you want a bit of glow or sparkle. It's much nicer than the gold shade as it's got a lovely pink tone in it. Much more natural, especially on pale skin, where shimmers can look a bit fake. It's hard to photograph but this hopefully will give you a gist...
I also bought some tan and this exfoliator I've heard loads about. I've only used it once and really like it. Gets rid of stubborn tan and leaves the skin smooth and ready for a fresh coat.
Clothing & home-wise, I could have bought lots...I'm going to do a separate post with what caught my eye as I've not had a chance to do pictures of what I bought. It was such a good time to call into Primark as it was late opening on a Friday night and the place was all tidied with hardly anyone in it - don't think I've ever seen a tidier Primark in my life!

Anyway - off to do a few shots so I'll be back soon, I promise...
