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

MY DV8..

Hey girlies, back into the fashion posts-wayhayy!

This time it is a little different than usual, instead of showing you lot one look that I usually do, I will be showing you one dress but three different ways to style it. Most people like myself when they buy a dress wear it once and once only because it is so noticeable.. and I try to wear things as much as I can - we need to get the wear out of it after-all. When you wear a skirt and top you can also wear them separate afterward and loads of different ways to make it look like new, so this is what I wanted to do for this beautiful dress.

I was asked to choose a dress from DV8's new in section and it was SO hard, I had seen so many items I could imagine myself in.
But I didn't want to pick one that I could just get one use out of it like every other dress I own, so this is why I picked this beauty- I knew straight away I could wear this loads. There is so much detail on this dress, the sleeves and the lace are fab!



The first look is a 'night out' look. Stick on a pair of sassy heels, a necklace and a clutch bag.. boom you're nightclub ready with the girls!

Dress
Shoes
Bag- Ted Baker
Necklace- Marmalade Ballymena 


The second look is a more dressed down look and surprisingly I LOVE IT! Everyone knows flats really aren't my thing, only if I need to wear them or I actually love them with a certain outfit will I wear them. But this preppy outfit I actually love, so perfect for a Sunday stroll (weather permitting obvs it's Northern Ireland!) or out for lunch or even a festival if you put on your face glitter to match?!


Dress
Bag- Primark
Jacket- Primark
Shoes


And lastly, this look is so perfect for a summer time wedding or else the races if you are lucky enough to head to them! Add a more sophisicated pair of shoes than the night out ones, a fascinator, a nice hair do, add a bag and you're ready to go!

Dress
Shoes
Bag- Tk Maxx
Earrings- Primark



So for someone who said they would NEVER wear a dress more than once, I think this one is AMAZING! DV8 have so many beautiful dresses and outfits to choose between at the minute, if only my bank balanced agreed with my head!


Thanks for reading, as always
