On Wednesday night myself and Ella headed to the Academie Bronz' Express event where they were launching their new product Magic Radiance Drops. The theme was summer BBQ and it was hosted in a gorgeous Georgian house on Leeson Street with live music, food and drink.

As I said on our Snapchat on the night, not even my bffffffffs have seen me sans tan. I buy my foundation specifically to...

So we've mastered the consignment, nailed the closet clearouts and in the past couple of weeks started our own collection. What next you may ask?! Well we've been throwing around ideas. Some of these ideas are better than others. Ella wants to open a Bubble Tea cafe (but Bubblicity have that covered), Id love to have our own Podcast (I think I'd make a great Ira Glass), Orlagh wants to start a Siopalla pet sanctuary (so she can bring her guinea pig Mary to work) and Anna wants a Siopaella reality TV show (we'd be axed after one episode). We mulled over these...

If you're a chocolate lover like me, Easter is a weekend full of munching on eggs and stuffing myself with chocolate bunnies. Life doesn't get better then a four day weekend if you're a chocoholic! If chocolate isn't your thing, fear not- you can still treat yourself to something a little different, like one of our designer handbags. We're constantly getting in new ones and trust me, it's hard to pick a favourite, but I've rounded up my top 5 bags for every budget. Whether you've €100 in your pocket or €1000, there's something for everything at Siopaella Designer Exchange!...

As you may already know, one of our favourite things to do at Siopaella is play dress up! It's one of the perks and makes us feel pretty, oh so pretty. So when Sive (our fab work experience student) was finishing up we said, hey Sive, pick out your fav things and let's do a shoot! Her smile widened and she ran to grab her favourite things she'd been eyeing up. When she returned to Temple Lane we shed a proud tear! She had grasped the idea of Siopaella completely...she had become ONE OF US!!!! What's that you ask? Well, there's...

Alexander Wang is arguably one of our favourite designers here at Siopaella. His creations and designs are something that we all mutually love and adore (something that Wang only shares with coffee and dogs, we're a picky bunch). He is known in particular for his iconic Rocco bag. The textured leather and metallic studs used on these bags give it that unmistakable Wang look that you can spot from a mile away. Wang is also known for having one of the most successful collaboration campaign with our high street favourite H&M.

Here at Siopaella we like a challenge. From the cinnamon challenge to the ice bucket we've done and nailed them all. Now doing these types of challenges aren't something we'd really share on the blog? Ohhh here's us swallowing a tablespoon of cinnamon while holding a Chanel bag!? Doesn't really have the same appeal as say our new challenge...Queue the oooohs and aaaaahs. This new challenge we're talking about? The Siopaella Siopaedit. We hinted about it last week with our Elka rainjacket blog that you can read here and shown a few of our favourite pieces on TV3's Xpose. We love...

For the first time since I bought my trusted Hunter wellies I am wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin' for rain (you sang that too didn't you)! Why you may ask? Oh, well only because we went and got ourselves the cutest new rainjackets since the bumblebee and ladybird ones we all had in Junior Infants! Let me introduce, Elka rainjackets! [gallery link="file" columns="1" size="large" ids="48274"] If you're up to date with all our social media channels especially Instagram and Snapchat, you would have seen a lot of talk about our new venture. If you're not up to date, stop what you're doing...

Last night myself and Ella attended the Flormar Ireland beauty event hosted by the lovely (and gorgeous) people over at Bannerton PR. The event was held in the gallery of the Morrison hotel. We were greeted with a refreshing cold glass of prosecco, just what was needed after a long day at work. We were there to clelebrate the launch of Flormar's new Triple Perfection Mascara. [gallery link="file" size="full" ids="48040,48050,48069"] After some chatting and delicious nibbles we were treated to a masterclass by top make up artist Derrick Carberry of Callanberry Make Up. Carberry showed us how to create three different...

Yesterday evening myself, Ella, Tanya and Aine attended the Image Digital Masterclass which was all about learning how social media can boost your business. It was hosted by the brilliant Felicity McCarthy, founder of Spark Digital. In this new age of technology, us millennials are constantly trying to keep up with the latest app or social media platform. There seems to be something new every week!! We've just about got the hang of Snapchat, are still a little confused by Twitter and just when we thought we had Facebook down to a T, the bloody thing goes and changes its...

Rag & Bone is was established in 2002 by Nathan Bogle and Marcus Wainwright. It marries together the idea of wearable clothing while still having an edgy, cool tailoring keeping the New York aesthetic that the brand embodies. While Bogle and Wainwright had no formal fashion training the brand prides itself on quality and attention to detail. The brand "continuously redefines urban style." It's a brand we LOVE here at Siopaella due to the classic timelessness of the pieces. They're pieces you'll have forever, will never date and will remain edgy and cool. This Rag & Bone blazer is a piece every wardrobe needs....

I've never been skiing but have always wanted to go! The idea of spending a day hitting the slopes and then an evening of mulled wine just sounds fabulous. Anybody heading this year? If so... take me with you!! Please?? Look I've even put together this skiing outfit for you and all Im asking for in return is a ticket to the slopes <3 It's a win win! We've teamed this fabulous Moncler jacket with skinny jeans. A comfortable, practical and stylish look! The Gucci backpack is perfect for skiing (do you take bags up the slopes? Like for snacks?)...

We've created here a simple look for a wedding but one that will stand out. This perfect full length Celine coat will keep you toasty in all those winter wonderland wedding photos while still looking fabulous!
