Electrical Picnic 2017… epic as at all times!
On Saturday, I spent a enjoyable, wet and windswept day down at Stradbally for day two of EP… to be truthful, we have been in the course of a subject in rural center Eire in early autumn, so I believe all people anticipated it and got here effectively ready. I felt like a little bit of a nutter for sporting a brief skirt, however I did convey a thick pair of wise black tights in my purse, plus further scarves, cardigans, gloves and even an additional coat within the automotive. 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 chilliness issue.
Our glitter stayed intact at the least 🙂
The principle purpose 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 elements are cheap and straightforward to purchase, plus it may be made in an enormous batch and leftovers freeze effectively. I’ve actually observed a rising demand for wholesome vegetarian recipes as individuals are incorporating extra plant-based dishes into their weekly meals 🙂
I really like the desserts plonked on an enormous salad or stuffed right into a wrap or pitta with the salsa and even some home made 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!
But it surely’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 convey 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a weekend cross however I made a decision to drive everybody again to Dublin on Saturday evening as we really feel too outdated for tenting.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 checklist.
I do know you’re meant to look effortlessly cool and thrown collectively, however to be sincere… it took me at the least an hour to tug 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 acquired 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 couple of months in the past and my bag was a birthday current from Wes.
The black and gold heeled boots are an outdated buy from ASOS, however they nonetheless have related variations on the location, similar to these heeled Chelsea boots for €51.35.
I based mostly my make-up for the day on a lot of rose golds, bronzes and browns with a slick of glitter down my cheekbones caught on with lash glue. Glitter and festivals are the most effective of mates!
It simply took perpetually to wash all of it off that evening and I’m nonetheless discovering bits of glitter all over the place.
To smoke up my eyes, I used a combo of the brand new SoSu Sizzling Fireplace palette…
and the City Decay Bare Warmth palette. Each have some attractive heat colors, each matte and shimmery, and I discovered them simple to mix.
I added some further sparkle to the inside 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 Gas.
Lastly, I crammed 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.
