#Rediscover the Ilac!!!

It’s that time of year when parents need to get organised, so my Mam and I spent a day over the weekend in Ilac Shopping Centre, making a really good dent into our Christmas shopping!

We started off in Rocket Menswear and this was our fave outfit! The jeans keep it casual but the jacket & waistcoat, smarten it up. I reckon a waistcoat on a man is like spanx on a woman – it helps keep a nice shape!!

Next stop, Nisbets on Moore St. for some homeware essentials! We picked up a cake mixer (for puddings & cakes!), cocktail shaker, glasses and a 4 slice toaster – very handy at busy breakfast times when family come to visit!!

Then, finally, we had to pick up a VERY special dress & shoes in Quiz for lucky #mams_ie Mammy Emma who won a trip to the E! Awards in LA!! She was seated 2 tables away from the Kardashians, so we needed a knock out dress and shoes to make her look & feel like a star. And Quiz had the perfect dress & shoes!!!! She looks AMAZING!!!!!
