GUCCI BELT..

Happy humpday everyone- what a miserable day it has been in Ballycastle today. But when it rains it means I get to catch up on everything I have been missing out on recently- aka doing my posts!

As probably every one of you lot have seen on my Snapchat or else some form of social media, I was in Dublin at the weekend to buy something I have wanted for what seems like a lifetime to me- My Gucci Belt.
I would say my friends and family are probably happier than me that I finally got my hands on it -because they don't have to listen to me going on and on about it every single day- no joke that was me!


A lot of people, in fact, most people, have said to me that I am 'mad' for spending that amount of money on 'just a belt' and you know what, they are probably right with everything that goes on in the world, but I work extremely hard for everything I buy, whether it is £30 or £300, and if I want to treat myself then who is anyone to judge me on that, as my mother says, "you can't take it with you, so enjoy it while you can," and she is so right!

I phoned Brown Thomas during the week to see if they had the one I wanted in stock and the lovely lady told me that they didn't have any of my size in stock - I was so devastated as I really wanted to buy it when I went down to Dublin rather than having to order it in store or else online- I had waited long enough, three more days just wouldn't cut it haha


When we headed down, of course my first stop was Brown Thomas- in case anyone else was as mad as me on a Sunday morning you know?! (which by the way I would highly recommend NOT doing that train journey with a hangover or 2 hours sleep!) When we walked into Gucci they had a few sizes left, both of which weren't mines. I asked the man did they have any sizes except the ones on display and I honestly thought he said he would look and check for me out of politeness, so I started looking at the bags and my friend Margie came behind me and told me that he had took a couple out of the drawer, inside I was doing cartwheels and jumping up and down but I tried to act like a normal person and not a complete lunatic and play it cool- yeah that lasted around two minutes until he handed me them to try on and the inner child screaming up and down was released haha!

I tried both sizes on, gucci85 and gucci90 and I felt that the 90 sat better on me, there was more room at the end of it, so if I lost or most likely gained weight there would be the leverage there for me and it wouldn't be wasted as I am not joking, I will NEVER have this off me no matter where I am going or what I am wearing!
And as quick as that- it was mine!

My parents and sisters gave me money towards it for my birthday last month and my amazing best friend Margie gave me a 100 euro gift card for Brown Thomas towards it, or whatever I wanted, but let's be honest, it was never going to be spent on anything else except the belt was it?! So it didn't actually cost me that much, still a lot of money 'for a belt' none the less, but I think it is so worth it!


We headed to a few other shops and of course, Penny's, we kept to last as we knew we would have the biggest bags from there! Dublin is such an amazing and beautiful city and the shopping is amazing-the rate for the euro just isn't the best at the moment, but a weekend with all my girls will have to be spent here for sure soon!!



Thanks for reading girls, as always,

HERE COME THE GIRLS..

Hello darlings!

Trust me to catch a cold/flu at the start of July, I haven't stopped sneezing this day- I am literally Sneezey from Snow White right now and nobody is giving me any sympathy, so hopefully someone does after this haha only joking I am sure I will be 100% again tomorrow, nothing a hot water bottle, an early night and a few cups of tea won't cure...right? Wronggg, I am heading to a wedding party tonight so anyone who sees's me there- avoid at all costs ok?!

So many of you gals have STILL been asking me about mine and my girls' race day outfits for Down Royal a couple of weeks ago, especially since Red Thread popped it up on her Facebook and Instagram over the past few days. I love it when you lot ask me about outfits or opinions on clothes, that is part of the reason why I started Emma Jane in the first place, because I love getting asked stuff like that. When I used to work in retail and customers used to buy the clothes in the shop because they saw it on me or another member of staff - I loved that feeling! I know- I'm weird af haha


Down Royal is one of my favourite days out and Ladies' Day happened to fall the day before my birthday this year, so it was such a brilliant excuse for a big Birthday outing and I was so thankful that everyone made the effort, even though they probably wanted to go to the races anyway- I'm saying it was all for me ok? haha
But my girls that could make it came along and we had the best day from start to finish, what's not to love about getting dolled up, drinking, eating and having the best craic with your best friends in the sunshine? Nope, nothing could beat it and I cannot wait for the November races, yes we are already planning them!


Last time I went to the races I wore a dress and I loved my outfit so much, don't get me wrong, but I just wanted something a bit different this time - I wear dresses all the time, so having something like what I wore this time around was definitely 'different' for me. So many people this year were wearing something different than the 'standard races outfit' and it was so amazing to see people in their own comfort zones wearing what they felt most comfortable in and not being afraid to either.


Although my outfit was still very much me; baby pinks, rose golds and a top made entirely of sequins? I mean if that isn't me then I don't know what is!
I feel like my outfit was definitely topped off by my amazing fascinator, it tied the whole outfit together and took it from a normal dressy outfit to a 'Race Day' outfit! I love love loved it as always. Sara is one talented little lady and I know she will go so far with this business, so many of you asked me where I got it from and, of course, it's from none other than my girl at Red Thread Bespoke Fascinators!





My messy side up do was by none other than Benny Okane at Mcgills in Ballycastle, getting up at 6.30am for me-what a star!
My bag was on sale in Monsoon at £12- bargain! 


Sinead dress was from Pretty Little Thing. It was so nice to see Sinead so dressed up, she looked a million dollars, love this look on her!



When I put a picture up of my bestie's shoes the day after the races you guys legit went crazy for them on my Snapchat, I had to put up a code for them on ASOS. But for those who didn't get it, I'll tag them below, as with everyone else if it is still available! Both of these girls looked stunning as always, trying to out do me on my birthday how dare they! Only kidding, they looked every bit the best-dressed lady- love!!



Margiie's amazing fascinator was hand made my the ladies at Prim and Penny and Ciara's was from our little sister who got hers online!


I got to spend some of the day with my blogger girls who were there too, how amazing do they look? So unique! They have links to their outfits on their social media sites linked below!



Massive thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday and those who commented on my outfit, I got absolutely spoilt rotten by my friends and family as always. Turning the dreaded 25 wasn't as bad as I thought you know!


Can anyone guess what I am FINALLY going to buy with my Birthday money? As if you lot don't know, I cannot contain my excitement to get it - I will never have it off me!


Thanks for reading as always

TAN ERASER REVIEW..

Hello my lovelies..


What a fabulous couple of days we have had weather wise, we are truly getting spoilt- IMAGINE the entire summer being this way? We wouldn't need any kind of holiday.. oh we can only wish, it will probably rain by the time I have finished this post haha

So what do we when the sun puts his hat on? Of course we get the summer dresses out, take the short shorts and crop tops out of the attic and then we go and put a layer of fake tan on, because - number one - let's face it, we are Irish and do not naturally tan one single bit and we are all in a world where if you leave the house and aren't glowing from head to toe- you are the strange one, not everyone else for being natural! I wish I could do the natural pale look, but I just can't, I am one of those who are actually obsessed with fake tan - I am never pale! It is just not for me, I love the feeling and the look of being tan all year round and for me to achieve that, I need it to come from a bottle.

But as much as I love putting on tan, every girl knows the struggle of getting it off- no matter what tan it is!
You know the scene girls- standing in the shower with a pair of exfoliating gloves scrubbing for what seems like hours (it is like being at the gym sometimes- maybe that is just my fitness level but haha). I thought I had it down to a fine art you know, I would use Lush 'Rub Rub Rub' body scrub before I got into the shower with, of course, the magic gloves, then again when I got into the shower along with a shower gel and then I would scrub until I was literally red raw..now this did work to a certain extent, I did have tan left around my elbows and knees etc and it didn't fully come off - but doing this twice a week and the tan was gone. I thought I was the smartest person alive for being able to get my tan off with what I thought was easy...UNTIL this came out!!

Now by no means am I even slightly exaggerating this, but this stuff is INSANE!! When I first laid my eyes on it, I thought I had to at least try it, even if it didn't work I had to give into the hype and actually test it out.
I managed to get my hands on the last bottle in the Boots in the Fair Hill Centre Ballymena and I was so excited to try it, but I waited a few days until I really needed to use it, as my tan was still glowing.

Basically, you put it on like a tanning moouse, only its white in colour. You rub it all over your body and wait for it to dry in, and it sort of absorbs into your skin. When you apply it, you can literally see the tan already starting to lift when you start rubbing it in, but when you let it dry it does feel weird, you know that sticky feeling like your tan isn't fully dry yet but you try to put clothes on anyway? Well that type of feeling haha
So after the mousse is dried in (I found it was best to wait until it was completely dried in, and it says on the bottle to leave it for 3-5 minutes - but whatever works for you) you jump into the shower and wash it off. I use one of the Cleansing Mitts from Primark with JUST water on it to wash away the mousse and the old tan washes away with it... it is THAT easy. Then, after I just use whatever shower gel I am using at the time, the Imperial Leather 'Sweet Treats' in Marshmallow is my fav at the min - I could eat my arm when I use it - it smells soooo good!


This is the result on my feet, now excuse the photo if anyone hates feet, but I feel this is the best place to show the results haha. Girls - you know what the tan on your feet looks like after a night of wearing heels, it just shows all the marks where the straps or sides of your shoes were the next day- awful!





Honestly, I think this is the best product I have ever used to remove fake tan and I don't think there will be anything this good or simple to use out for a long long time. So many of you have asked where to purchase it or what the actual product is like when I have raved about it on my social media, so I thought I would pop it all on here for you to see for yourselves. It is priced at £14.99 and I have just finished my first bottle and I got about five FULL body tan removals out of it. Even if I had only gotten one from it I still think I would re-purchase it, I love it so much! And the best bit.. it smells great!
Buy it online here



Let me know how you lot get on with it and if you love it as much as me!
Thanks for reading as always
