Outfit Post

I I decided today that I would do an ‘outfit’ post. I know this is something that many other blogger’s do and I just thought I would jump on the bandwagon. I have also mentioned before that I love a bargain so I will be posting many more ‘outfit posts’ in the future.

I haven’t been wearing make up recently. To be candid, I have not been putting much effort in at all lately in my appearance as I have just been going to the gym. However, today I put a little bit on. I applied some bright red lipstick and I felt like a totally different woman! I have took some pictures of myself today as I want to try and share as much as possible throughout my blogs so that my readers can relate to me and feel as if they know me -even just a little bit.

Today, another thing that I done (which I was super proud of myself for doing) was that I wore my hair up in a high pony tail. Now, I’m fully aware that to most people this isn’t a big deal, however I am so used to hiding behind my full head of thick, dark, hair constantly that wearing my hair up feels like a massive deal. I feel so revealed. I feel a bit paranoid that people can see my whole face. I worry about it. I’m totally insecure about having my hair up and having my full face on show. But I did it! I also received some lovely compliments from my family which was comforting.

My outfit today consisted of a ribbed black and white (striped) turtle neck styled top with long sleeves. It is a very tight and figure hugging top; it is extremely comfortable. As you all know – I am a total bargain hunter. I purchased this top in the sale from Dunnes Store for £5. It’s my kind of thing and I totally love it. On my bottom half I wore a pair of black tights with a basic black mini skirt from H&M. This skirt cost me £3.99. My boots (which are the easiest pair of shoes to walk in that I own) were a gift from my boyfriend. I have no idea where he got them, how much they cost or how on earth he managed to pick me such a beautiful pair of shoes – but I adore them. You can wear them casually to dress your outfit up or you could wear them with something a bit more fancy. They are so easy to walk in too – and don’t hurt your feet at all – which is a bonus. Furthermore, if you are interested in the first photograph I posted – the lipstick I am wearing cost me £1. It was from the MUA brand that I purchased in Superdrug. It was a fabulous buy. I also own this lipstick in a variety of different colours and it never lets me down. I highly recommend MUA lipsticks. You can’t go wrong with a £1 lipstick in your handbag incase of an emergency!

For those of you who just wanted to know about my outfit – feel free to stop reading now. I hope that you enjoyed reading about my bargains and if you have any questions feel free to email me on charlenemcelhinney@icloud.com – thank you. 

I just want to write a brief summary about my day for my regular readers! I spent the day at my Gran Rundell’s house. She has been rather poorly recently and was so pleased to see me. She seemed great today though. My Gran and I went out a saunter around the block in her area – she was glad to be out for a bit – but totally exhausted by the time we got back. It was so lovely to see her smiling, laughing and talking away today. She was even dancing a little bit! I was overjoyed to see her like this. This is the way I always remembered my Gran Rundell. She’s such a lovely wee soul.

I enjoyed spending the day with my Gran. She always appreciates my company. Something I have said before and will reiterate now is that your time is the most precious and greatest gift you can give a person. It is something another person values and acknowledges. It is something you can never get back. Time is very precious.

This evening, my head feels a little bit all over the place and I’m not sure that I’ve wrote this blog the way I would have wanted to. However, I’ve enjoyed writing something different. I shall do more outfit posts in the future. Have a wonderful evening! 🙂
