Style Diary of A Yummy Mummy




This is my sister Pamela, mother of two beautiful boys aged 3 and 1.  I had the pleasure of styling and doing Pamela's make-up for a recent wedding. The look was inspired by Pamela's style icon Jessica Alba. 
 
 
 
GET THE LOOK
 
 
THE TOP ... Simple yet elegant this sixties style classic roll neck top with its unusual collar detail and classic box sleeveless shape is finished with a button to the nape. This versatile piece will go well with both skirts and trousers, and its timeless style can be modernised with some chunky jewellery.


THE SKIRT... The Cozetta skirt features flattering pleats, an A-line silhouette and a patterned overlay which adds to the chic style. The waistband cinches you in for a figure flattering look. Fully lined for ultimate comfort the skirt is closed with a concealed back zip. Keep all the attention on the skirts fullness by wearing your top tucked in. Skirt length 23.5 inches/60cm from waist to hem.


THE SHOES ... Perfect for this time of year the rounded toe, platform design with ankle strap worked wonderfully with this look.  And Pamela has also confirmed that they are a very comfortable shoe too.

 
THE BAG ... The little black clutch is completely timeless and goes with everything.  It has a leather look finish with a metal tab detail and the pleated style adds a hint of luxury.

 

THE MAKEOVER
 
 
To create Pamela's make up look I used some of my favourite products from my makeup bag.
 
  • MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation - is a creamy, luxurious, gel–based foundation that provides medium buildable to high coverage with a natural satin finish. Its hydrating, instantly revitalizes the skin while keeping it looking smooth, soft and plush. Its long–wearing and water–resistant.
  • Benefit They're Real Mascara - I will never ever ever ever be without this mascara again. Its amazing!!! It lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts and separates lashes for a spectacular look!  The only thing I could fault about this product is that its so difficult to remove so you will have to have a good eye makeup remover to hand.
  • Schwing eye liner - I've only recently tried the schwing eye liner from the Balm and love it.  It is a defining, liquid eyeliner that has a unique thin, tapered felt-tip that you can create, thin and fine and strong and bold lines with. This matte black eyeliner does not smudge or flake, it is small and compact and easy to bring wherever you are going (buy here). 
  • Urban Decay Naked3 - Who doesn't love this fabulous mirrored compact packed with a dozen rose-hued neutrals, plus a double-ended brush.
  • DIOR Addict Fluid Stick - Its not a gloss and its not a lipstick, its a totally new kind of lip product.  I received this as a gift for my birthday in September and I have to say I am hooked on it.   I just love the combined maximum colour impact, glossy shine and no makeup feel. 
  • Mary-Lou Manizer - Also new to my makeup bag is the Mary-Lou Manizer from the Balm.  I love this honey-hued luminzer as it highlights your skin making it look softer and younger while adding a subtle glow (buy here).
  • MAC Cremeblend Blush Pro Palette - Its creamy, easy to blend medium coverage formula imparts a natural finish that's smooth, dewy-fresh, long-lasting.

Fusion Fashion's First Birthday



Happy 1st Birthday to Fusion Fashion and congratulations to its Proprietor Fiona Faherty for putting on an amazing party. From the pink carpet, to the pretty cupcakes and everything in between you can only stand back and admire Fiona's attention to detail. Everything was perfect.


The party started at 6pm with special guest, model, presenter, blogger and yummy mummy Pippa O'Connor Ormonde working the room.  I was really excited about meeting Pippa as I just love her blog (www.pippa.ie) and boy is she super stylish and pretty. 

Me & Pippa
It was all about the fashion and Fusion Fashion's Autumn / Winter collection did not disappoint.  This season the boutique is jam packed with an amazing range of labels including Sinequanone, FEVER London, PIT, Louche, Almari, Closet, D'arcy & Eden Row.  The fashion show high lighted even more the versatility, style and glamour Fusion Fashion has to offer its customers.
 
Fusion Fashion really is a one stop shop with a stunning collection of hats also available to hire from Fiona Mangan & Michael Mullins.  You can also pick up the perfect accessory with lots of affordable handbags and jewellery to choose from to match up your outfit.  And if you feel like you need a little extra confidence, Fusion Fashion also stocks a selection of shape wear from ATIR.

The Models
 
Look who was in the crowd.....
 
 

 
What I wore....
 
This was my first time to wear my Closet floral cross tie front dress.  It has a beautiful dark floral print, 3/4 length sleeve, a low v-neckline and a tie at the front to mask my unwanted bumps.  I recently bought this online at House of Fraser for £27. The material is quite light but I have to say I really love this dress and will definitely wear it into the winter with my black opaque tights and boots. 
 
 
 
Onwards and upwards Fusion Fashion
