Galgorm Resort

Hello Lovelies,

As some of you may know we recently had a mid-week break in Belfast’s countryside, Ballymena, at the Galgorm Resort and Spa. Galgorm Resort & Spa is an old ‘gentlemen’s’ estate that is one of Northern Ireland’s most luxurious hotels, located just a short 30 minute drive from Belfast International Airport and very centrally located for visiting the whole of Northern Ireland. The hotel is situated in 163 acres of lush green surroundings. As you drive up to the oldest part of the hotel you’d think it was a tiny country house, but as you are greeted by Maurice and guided through the doors you realise the full-scale of it all. With an abundance of communal areas, selection of bars, 122 rooms and its biggest feature – the Thermal Village. All of this is complimented by the gushing River Maine which runs through the grounds, separating the hotel from the green forests in the distance. It really doesn’t get much better than this.

The Thermal Village and Spa is both chic and feminine in the reception area, all sparkle and glitz. It’s recent expansion and the launch of the Thermal Village has added an additional 48 guest rooms but at no point do you feel crowded or over run with people.

We had the privilege of staying in the Superior Suite which overlooked the river and the Thermal Village. The Signature Suite selection really took luxury to the max. The bedroom contained a King Size bed, feature terrace with hot tub overlooking the River Maine, outdoor soft seating area, separate sitting room with contemporary flame fire and a gracious dining room which can accommodate six guests for private in-room dining.

Three restaurants and two bars (including a gin bar) means there are plenty of options for dining and drinking. The River Room offers a classy menu with refined service, Gillies has more hearty fare and Fratelli Restaurante has an Italian menu featuring pasta and pizza. Countryside walks or day trips to the north coast are within easy reach or you could simply lounge in the spa day in day out.

There are also plenty of sightseeing to be done with the Causeway coastline only 30 minutes away with Portush, the Giants Causeway, Bushmills, Ballycastle, Cushendall and Rathlin Island all within reach.

Thus truly is a  beautiful destination spa in all Ireland’s greenery with spa treatments and plenty to do for parents spending time together without the kids. It really is that good. It’s a big resort that is welcoming and friendly and has some great rooms, especially above the Thermal Village.

Pink Florals

Hello Lovelies,

Happy Friday! How has everyones week been? We have had another busy one, I just don’t know where the time is going. Each week is going quicker than the last! If you follow me on Snapchat (GlamMeetsGirl) or Instagram you will know that we were in Galgorm Resort for a couple of days for some R&R. I will fill you all in on the details in the coming days but I just wanted to show you one of the outfits I wore out for dinner.

I picked this pink floral dress up in Primark when I was in Dublin during the week. It is so cute and super girlie that I couldn’t leave it behind me. It only cost €16.00 and is perfect for the summer months ahead! I paired it with these scrappy heels that I also picked up in Primark. These thin straps are not my usual go to pair of shoes but they were incredibly comfortable and I cannot wait to pair them with some more upcoming outfits.

Now I am off to Kilkenny for the day (no rest for the wicked) but I will be back tomorrow to give you the low down on our trip to Galgorm.

As Always Love,

Fashion Funk

Hello Everyone,

If I’m ever feeling in a fashion “funk”, I always resort to a classic all-black outfit.  Hence why I fell in love romper style suit because it’s one that can take you from fall to spring and can be styled so many ways.  For this look I wanted to resort to the simply look, so I paired it with these floral print high heels that I found in Penneys some time ago. By far my favorite part of this outfit is the flutter style legs.  This makes for both a flirty yet fun ensemble.

I hope you all have a fantastic Monday, and thanks again for stopping by!

Love,

Feeling Floral

Hello Lovelies,

Happy Easter Everyone! I hope the Easter Bunny arrived and you are enjoying all the chocolate…..it is safe to say I have ate my body weight in chocolate today but why not, it only happens once a year so why not make the most of it!

Now onto my look of the day…..everybody needs a dress like this one in their lives — not only is it in one of the best colors in the world (black), it’s also extremely comfortable which is perfect for those days when you just want to throw something on and be done with it.

The below dress is one I randomly picked up in Dunnes Stores during the week when I was supposed to be finding something for May to wear for Easter.  It was one of those things that was on sale and I snagged it.  I love how it can be dressed up or down, but by now you know one of my favorite ways to wear a dress is pretty much nice and girly and dressed up with some heels.

I hope you all have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!

Love,

Glam Meets Girl x

Blue Belle

Hi Lovelies,

Happy Friday! How great is it that we have a four day weekend! It’s so sunny here today which always helps with putting you in a good mood. I have another busy morning  ahead but come this evening the plan is to catch up with some admin & blog work.

Now I know the weather is amazing at the moment but I probably wouldn’t be wearing this outfit just yet as its still a little chilly even with the suns shining. I bought this top and the sandals a few weeks ago in Primark and I thought it was the perfect look for today’s shoot.

Have a nice day guys. I’m just going to catch up on some blog bits now and eat Easter Eggs while Niall looks after May.

Love,

Floral Days

Hello Gang,

How is everyone doing? Are you looking forward to Easter? This week is a little less crazy than last week but it is all systems go for the next couple of days as we have lots of plans for Baby May’s first Easter! There is something so special about Easter time in our house, it is a little like Christmas but without the pressure. It is so nice to come home, spend some quality time with family and of course indulge in all things Chocolate!

Now onto today’s look…..I love florals, always have and always will. This season they are everywhere and I’ve made a few additions to my wardrobe to include this top from Zara which I know is a piece I will get plenty of wear out of this season. A little floral design can add that little bit of juge to spice up any outfit. Paired with my red tinted Ray-Bans and some red lipstick and I am ready for the day ahead, casual vibes all the way!

Well I better go and get ready as we are off to Kilkenny for the afternoon but I will check in with you all tomorrow.

Love,

Glam Meets Girl x

Colours Of The Rainbow

Hello Lovelies,

I hope this post finds you happy and well! I don’t know about you, but my week is going by way too fast. For my look today I thought I would brighten things up a bit with this mix of colour! This look had a bit of sass, along with a bit of girly as well. I have been drawn to pink lately and love every time I slip it into a look. This skirt was a recent purchase that I stumbled across in Cath Kidson during a trip to Kildare Village. I don’t think I have ever bought a piece of clothing from Cath Kidson before but I am incredibly impressed with the quality and I will definitely be paying them a visit on my next trip. Whats more it only cost €14.50….I love the feeling of getting a great item at an even great price point.

I hope you enjoy this look and perhaps add a little colour to your look today to brighten things up!

As Always Love,

Shein Review

Hello Everyone,

Happy Monday! Recently I’ve had several people ask me my thoughts on my Shein purchases so I wanted to give my honest review of them. With so many of these type of budget friendly online boutiques from China, you want to know if you can trust them before you commit to purchasing. Shein, formerly known as Sheinside is an online retailer that is based in Asia. They sell inexpensive and on trend clothing and accessories. Basically they sell really cute clothes at very competitive prices.

Every time I wear something from Shein, people ask me questions about them and their products and what I think of the company. Honestly, if I didn’t like something, I wouldn’t post it. I don’t only collaborate with SheIn, I also purchase clothing from them on my own as well!

I was sent this blue dress jacket number from Shein a few weeks ago and have not stopped wearing it since it arrived in the post! It goes with everything and is perfect for this time of year! I decided to go for something that looked over sized but is in fact only a size small and I’m pleasantly surprised at how utterly cute this jacket is! It can be worn for all occasions whether its a dressy or a casual outfit.

The awesome thing about Shein is that they give points to consumers that leave reviews and photos. The more you do (ex. review, photo, share on social media) the more points you get. Now the great thing isn’t the points in my opinion ($1=1 Shein Point=1 cent,) it’s the fact that it entices people to leave reviews. Whenever I want to purchase an item I read through the reviews and look through the pictures. I look out for reviews of customers with the same measurements as me. My favorite reviews are the ones that have measurements, photos, and the ones where clients specify the size that they purchased and how it fits. In the case that there is an item that doesn’t have a review that is helpful to me, I size up.

Now shipping does take a while so it’s not going to be your typical shipping length. It’s usually takes 3-20 days but it’s also usually free! So if you can just be patient, it will come.

If you have any other questions please be sure to leave them in the comment section below so I can answer them for you!

Love,

Sunday Blues

Hello Lovelies,

How has everyones weekend been? I hope you were out enjoying the beautiful weather that graced our presence yesterday…we decided to venture into the City and have some lunch and then a stroll around Stephen’s Green before May’s first GAA game in Croke Park. It was such a lovely day and a day of firsts for May which is always a little special.

Now onto my latest look…as you may have already noticed the colour blue is everywhere  this season and I cannot get enough of it! It is such a versatile colour that can be brought to life whether its paired with a  pair of white jeans or black leather leggings. I picked this little number up last week whilst browsing through Primark….I had intended to keep  the dress for my upcoming trip to Dubai but it was to nice to keep hidden in the wardrobe until then.

Well that is all for the time being! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Love,

Glam Meets Girl x
