Electrical Picnic 2017… epic as all the time!
On Saturday, I spent a enjoyable, wet and windswept day down at Stradbally for day two of EP… to be truthful, we had been in the midst of a area in rural center Eire in early autumn, so I feel all people anticipated it and got here properly ready. I felt like a little bit of a nutter for sporting a brief skirt, however I did carry a thick pair of smart black tights in my purse, plus further scarves, cardigans, gloves and even an additional coat within the automobile. It was fairly dry all day till 6.30ish, when the rain got here down and we discovered ourselves huddling within the Three Eire #3Disco space with some funky choons to ease the nippiness issue.
Our glitter stayed intact at the very least 🙂
The primary motive for me being at Electrical Picnic was to do a cookery demo at The Theatre of Meals on Saturday afternoon.
I selected a favorite recipe from Eat Your self Match to make – the chickpea and sesame desserts with spicy mango salsa. It’s easy, tasty and an excellent recipe for households because the components are cheap and straightforward to purchase, plus it may be made in a giant batch and leftovers freeze properly. I’ve actually observed a rising demand for wholesome vegetarian recipes as persons are incorporating extra plant-based dishes into their weekly meals 🙂
I like the desserts plonked on a giant salad or stuffed right into a wrap or pitta with the salsa and even some do-it-yourself guacamole. Yum!
There was an enormous turnout for the demo and I loved each second of it… thanks all a lot for coming in and supporting it!
I even managed to get an viewers selfie on the finish!
Nevertheless it’s all about teamwork, and I’m so grateful to the incredible workforce on the EP Theatre of Meals for inviting me to be part of the day. It was very spectacular set-up and lots of people labored very exhausting over the previous few months to carry all of it collectively.
The remainder of the afternoon and night was spent exploring the competition with my husband Wes and mates. We did have a weekend move however I made a decision to drive everybody again to Dublin on Saturday night time as we really feel too previous for tenting. Depart it to the younger ‘uns!
I by no means actually know what to put on to a competition, though consolation and heat are undoubtedly on the prime of the listing.
I do know you’re meant to look effortlessly cool and thrown collectively, however to be sincere… it took me at the very least an hour to drag this outfit collectively!
I used to be very grateful for this cosy and lengthy khaki bomber, plus I love the pop of orange in its lining.
I bought each the jacket and denim skirt on-line:
The bomber is simply €35 from Fairly Little Factor…
And the tremendous shred denim mini skirt is €27. Hurrah!
I purchased my sheer physique prime in TK Maxx a number of months in the past and my bag was a birthday current from Wes.
The black and gold heeled boots are an previous buy from ASOS, however they nonetheless have comparable variations on the location, equivalent to these heeled Chelsea boots for €51.35.
I based mostly my make-up for the day on a number of rose golds, bronzes and browns with a slick of glitter down my cheekbones caught on with lash glue. Glitter and festivals are the very best of mates!
It simply took without end to clean all of it off that night time and I’m nonetheless discovering bits of glitter in all places.
To smoke up my eyes, I used a combo of the brand new SoSu Scorching Fireplace palette…
and the City Decay Bare Warmth palette. Each have some beautiful heat colors, each matte and shimmery, and I discovered them simple to mix.
I added some further sparkle to the interior corners of my eyes and decrease lash line with the Stila glitter & glow liquid eyeshadow in Rose Gold Retro. A agency favorite and it actually makes your eyes pop!
On my lips I used MAC lipliner in Soar..
Adopted by the City Decay Bare Warmth assortment lipstick in Gasoline.
Lastly, I stuffed in my brows utilizing the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown – a beautiful product and it stayed on all day, regardless of the rain.
