Hosted by @rebecca_mckinney1, we got to check out some of the new AW19 arrivals into M&S (want it ALL) and hear inspirational stories from 3 @actioncancer ambassadors who were the models on the night - all cancers survivors. A timely reminder to keep supporting this charity and the important work they do providing screening services all over NI. If you’re aged between 40 & 49, you can book a mammogram online. More info on the link in my stories or over on their Instagram profile. ——————————————————— Hope you’re all well out there in Instagram land - I’ve been quiet with the kids off and the time away up on the North Coast but normal service will resume next week....lots of boutique try ons coming up in September and a bit of a wardrobe challenge too.... #watchthisspace ——————————————————— Dress - Primark/Penney’s (current) Biker - Mango (current) Trainers - M&S (SS19 but back in stock) Bag - Boden (so old I can’t remember) #ootd #whatiworetoday #alifetostyle #mandsgirlsnightin #dressandtrainers #easiestoutfitever #nibloggers #belfastblogger #irishblogger #styleover40 #mumstyle
