N E P H E W S ๐Ÿ‘ฌ Iโ€™ve got 3 nephews and today Iโ€™m so lucky to be looking after 2 of them (the oldest and the youngest!)! @joey_heaney #caleb #reuben #auntiechristine #lifewithchristine #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #boys

Not the best picture but I can honestly blame the alcohol for it! ๐Ÿ™ˆ I had some lovely pink gin left over from my birthday and tbh I had loved the idea of mixing it with prosecco and lemonade (as per @the_mother_hen_) ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜Š Iโ€™m going to admit the Iโ€™m not feeling so clever today but I think Iโ€™ll have to try it again very soon! I also took a liking to this little dog creature and his cute solar eyes ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #obviouslydidntlearnthefirsttime #ginforthewin #pinkgincocktail #kathrynmademedoit #notreally #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #lifewithchristine

๐Ÿ’•B E A U T Y C L U B ๐Ÿ’•this month the @debenhamsbeauty @debenhamsire have a choice of these gorgeous @urbandecaycosmetics gifts ๐ŸŽ Either the all nighters setting spray or the optical illusion primer .... either way itโ€™s a winner! #debenhamsireland #urbandecay #beautyclub #letstalkbeauty #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #lifewithchristine #mymakeupbag #traineemua

@percyandreed is not a brand I had ever really been familiar with. I mean I have lots of blonde hair and itโ€™s always been a mammoth ๐Ÿ˜ task to keep it tamed and in some kind of order but I recently had the pleasure of trying some Wonder Balm - itโ€™s so gorgeous and leaves my hair so soft and manageable. Plus you can use it with ALL of the other styling products you use RESULT #lifewithchristine #hair #myhairproducts #blondehairdocare #niblogger #irishblogger #nihair #irishhair #over30blogger

๐Ÿ’‹ L I P ๐Ÿ’‹I usually just stick on a nude lipstick ๐Ÿ’„ but last week in @debenhamsire I got chatting with @gemmamccollum93 and she recommended this little beauty from @urbandecaycosmetics ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ A week on and Iโ€™m still loving it! Now to figure out how to sharpen it ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #urbandecay #lipliner #lifewithchristine #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #traineemua #makeupformyface #irishmakeup #nibeauty

P A T T E R N S โฌ›๏ธโฌœ๏ธโฌ›๏ธโฌœ๏ธโฌ›๏ธ I want to say look at all the pretty patterns but itโ€™s been quite a stressful morning today. I recently took a dressmaking class at @southernregionalcollege and learn the basics for dressmaking ๐Ÿ‘— I loved it so much that I invested in a few pieces of equipment (sewing machine etc) ๐Ÿ‘–Anyway today I cut out a pattern and then cut the fabric ready to start a wee project! Iโ€™m taking inspiration from Catherine @daintydressdiaries #beginnersewing #over30artsandcrafts #over30blogger #niblogger #irishblogger #lifewithchristine #handmadeclothes

So after watching @ddonohoe_stylist_blogger stories and her post on the grid today I popped into @ginonvclothing in @rushmere_sc NOW I must confess that I do not usually shop in this store as Iโ€™m of the curvy persuasion and therefore can never find anything to fit BUT this gorgeous statement tee actually looked amazing on. It was fitted in all the right places, had a great length on the arm and I loved the length overall. The fabric was so soft and yet felt like it would hold its shape well. Priced at a mere ยฃ16.99 I can see me running back to get the other colours. Iโ€™m wearing a m/l here #nvclothing #plussizeonthehighstreet #unlikelyfashionfit #over30blogger #niblogger #irishblogger #rushmere #localfashion #daniellemademedoit

โš ๏ธ WARNING โš ๏ธ New post up on the blog all about my fabulous experience with @stenalineukie on our weekend away to Liverpool. What a great time we had on board ๐Ÿšข #stenalineukie #liverpool #lifewithchristinetravels #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #sealifeisthelifeforme #oceanview

Love this little natural makeup look today. Iโ€™ve used the h2o tinted foundation @pixibeauty @urbandecaycosmetics flushed palette which has bronzer, highlight and blush (Iโ€™m using the colour โ€œstreakโ€) Iโ€™ve used my @benefit_ire ka-brow to help tame my unruly (and in terrible need of attention!) brows. Iโ€™ve finished off with a double coat of @benefit_ire Bad Girl Bang mascara which makes my lashes pop ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป A quick fill in of my lips using my @urbandecaycosmetics 24/7 lip liner in โ€œspeedballโ€ and Iโ€™m out the door ready to face the day ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰ #traineemua #naturalmakeup #mymakeupmyway #over30blogger #beautyhasnoage #niblogger #irishblogger #irishmakeup

Iโ€™ve finally made it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ Iโ€™ve now got my picture in front of an extremely instagrammable wall and Iโ€™m feeling kinda proud to post it ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป This was taken on Saturday in #Liverpool and I was all hot and sweaty from touring the fabulous city but oh gosh was I happy! Take me back to my happy place people ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป #lifewithchristinetravels #adelphihotelliverpool #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #stenalineukie #instagramwall #doingitforthegram #gramfam

๐Ÿšข S U N D A Y F U N D A Y ๐Ÿšข we are travelling home today so Iโ€™m all about the comfort. Iโ€™m wearing a little vest top from @shopmatalan @matalan_craigavon and a pair of narrow leg trousers from @newlookcurves @newlook Iโ€™ve stuck my hair in a โ€œmum bunโ€ and Iโ€™m rocking the makeup free look ๐Ÿ‘€ Love my Gucci dupe belt from @peacocks_fashion itโ€™s so versatile although if anyone wants to treat me to a real one then ...... ๐Ÿ˜œ Hope your Sunday is as good as mine ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #lifewithchristinetravels #liverpool #belfast #stenalineukie #adelphihotelliverpool #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #midlifefashionista #travellinghome

๐Ÿ“ฃ L I V E R P O O L ๐Ÿ“ฃ so Iโ€™m posting this and I truly cannot believe that Iโ€™m heading home in the morning! We arrived on Friday morning to stay at the Adelphi Hotel (where Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra and others have stayed!) Its a gorgeous hotel full of character and period features ( it could be the hotel from the shining!) We have taken a river cruise ๐Ÿšข, hopped onto the open top bus ๐ŸšŒ tour, sipped cocktails ๐Ÿธ at happy hour and feasted on delicious food ๐Ÿฅ˜! Iโ€™ve done some shopping as well ๐Ÿ’ผ We traipsed round the @thealbertdock @liverpool_oneofficial @museumofliverpool and had lots of fun and laughter along the way #Liverpool2018 #lifewithchristinetravels #niblogger #irishblogger #over30blogger #stenalineukie #footpassengers #adelphihotelliverpool #albertdock #ferrycrossthemersey #everyhourishappyhour
