January Blues

‘January Blues’ seemed an apt prompt for this month’s ‘Style Not Age’, as I have been feeling below par. You know how it is. Too much indulging over the Christmas season. We put the tree up at the end of November and that meant we started on the mince pies even earlier than usual. But

Sparkle and Shine

Hello, my friends. I hope like me you all had a lovely Christmas Day. We had the perfect Christmas with our girls and their families. Plus, I did not have to cook for the third year running. So, there was no stress for me. And to be honest, it would be difficult to match the

Stripes and spots

Can you wear stripes and spots together? Of course, you can. My friends in the ‘Style Not Age’ group showcase their stripey and spotty/dotty outfits this month. Surprisingly, we all had to go digging deep in our wardrobes for this challenge. I bought these faux leather trousers in Primark recently, but this was their first

Orange coat

‘Orange you glad it’s Halloween?’ Jacqui chose this month’s ‘Style Not Age’ prompt and thinking of pumpkins opted for orange.

Layered Lux

In the last few days there has been a dip in temperature, particularly in the evenings. So, Gail’s prompt for September was perfect. ‘Layered Lux’ fitted in perfectly with last Saturday night, out with friends. We would be walking home, so I definitely would need a coat for the first time this Autumn. Below, you


Hello my friends. Can you believe we are nearly half way through September? We had a wonderful June and July in Ireland. Graham and I spent a few days in Cabu in Cavan with family and then a weekend in Center Parks with friends. Totally different experiences; both fabulous. I will write about them at

Powerscourt Hotel

‘Style Not Age’ time again and this month the prompt is ‘Maxi Madness’. It was my turn to choose and I must admit I was keen to showcase a rather colourful mad maxi-skirt that I bought in a local boutique Studio 124. I wore it on our anniversary when we spent a night in The

Beauty Spotlight Team

Hi everyone. Can you believe it is August already? It is true that time goes faster the older I get. We are enjoying warm weather for the past month in Ireland, but we are not thankfully experiencing extremely high temperatures like other countries. Life is busy, but busy is good. Right? There is definitely no

Summer Sizzlers

Well, the sun finally appeared and Anna chose Summer Sizzlers as her prompt for July’s ‘Style Not Age’. In Ireland, we have not seen the mad temperatures of the UK, but have had lovely warm days in the early 20s. I tend to cover up in the sun. And this sizzling orange linen shirt has


Hi everyone. It is Beauty Spotlight time again and my friends have lots of goodies to share. GG and I have returned from our Danube Cruise and I will be telling you all about it in my next post. Meanwhile Angie at Your True Self Blog loves to come up with outfit ideas to share
