Having done a collaboration for Femme Luxe in the past, I got approached by them again to make a festive outfit collaboration for the 2019/2020 holiday season! Although this is a collaboration please know that all these opinions are my own, and that I only chose to work with Femme Luxe because I liked partnering with them the last time around.
Make sure you follow my 21buttons account as I post all of my outfits there, these included!
I used the items I got last time quite a lot and gots lot of compliments on them as well so was really looking forward to collaborating with Femme Luxe again. I was originally deterred by the slinky style and appearance of their website but some of their stuff is really good. I just avoid the bodycon dresses as I don’t wear those. Nothing against them, it’s just not my style.
I chose two quite festive outfits and two other more day-to-day items: one beautiful red jumpsuit, a baby doll mini dress, beige high waist trousers and a ruffle white bodysuit.
Printsfield reached out to me about collaborating with them. I quickly checked what they do, they basically do personalised socks. It could either be socks with your face on them, socks with your pet face on them, socks with your boyfriend’s face on them, socks with your son’s face on them, basically personalised socks with faces and cool backgrounds to with them. The background for the personalised socks could be food, or valentines day patterns, or even funny stuff like a cosmic background or emojis.
Obviously, Shanti is thrilled with my cheeky personalised socks order and I’m so happy with these customi socks! They are good quality and mostly I think they are the perfect gift. I always have no clue what to give some people as gifts and can think about so many loved ones that would enjoy these as a gift! For instance, my sister would love a pair of personalised socks with her dog’s face on them and I’m sure my mom wouldn’t mind one with my or my sister’s face on them either. There are also personalised socks with Christmas motives so I might get those for Christmas to those back home. It’s such a funny gift as well and also a really thoughtful one if you know that someone is really obsessed with their pet or even with some type of food, as there are personalised socks with food items. It’s kind of bizarre funny don’t you think?
You can get these socks from printsfield.com and you can get 20% off with TRAVELWITHPAU20. And they have worldwide shipping!
I was recently approached by Femme Luxe to write a review of their clothes. As a blogger & influencer, I get a lot of spammy offers to review clothes, many of which involve getting outfits for free but then paying an outrageous amount for shipping (which is a known scam, by the way). The email from Femme Luxe actually came to my spam folder but it was, for once, the real deal.
I headed over to their website and my initial reaction was negative. The model is the same for all photos and is slinky, Kim Kardashian style. That’s definitely not me. I decided to look over the clothes for a bit longer and ended up finding a few things which seemed ok and decided to give them a chance. And was glad I did! I got 4 different items, loved and will continue to use all of them.
The roadtrip described below is perfect for a short but busy visit to Ireland, perfect for a four day long weekend, such as Easter holidays.
Day Zero: Arrive to Dublin and drive to Killashee Hotel
We arrived to Dublin from London late at night via a British Airways flight. As we had already explored Dublin on past trips we decided to skip it and get a head start on driving by stopping at Co. Kildare which is around 45 min away.
