8 Signs You’re Turning Into Your Mam

She always said the day would come…. You prob laughed it off but now the signs are showing fast, the same habits are creeping in and the sayings you thought you’d never repeat just roll off the tongue with alarming ease. In honor of Mother’s Day we’ve rounded up 8 telling signs you’re turning into your mammy. Mums are the bomb dot com tho so we aren’t even mad about it tbh. Happy Mama’s Day! x

You’ve become a container hoarder

‘Sure it’ll come in handy some day’, you say, 20 takeaway containers later, adding yet another to an already overflowing cupboard.

Bargains are now life

You’ve recently found yourself seeking out the ‘better deals’. Buying in bulk just makes sense now & 2 for 1 offers are absolutely unmissable.

Your bag is overwhelmingly full all the time

To quote your mam ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ is in there – Fully stocked with snacks, painkillers, tissues & just about anything else you’ve ever owned. Everything gets chucked in there & your keys are probably always down at the very bottom of it too.

A cosy night in is your new going out

You’re starting to appreciate the value of a good 8 hours sleep & pamper sesh over a mad night out.

Comfy shoes are #1

Steadily phasing out those sky high heels & rockin’ more flats on the reg. Comfy chic is a LOOK.

You’re overwhelmed by abbreviations 

Finding yourself googling the latest abbreviations used in the whatsapp group & pretending you understood all along.

Complaining is fun

Bus delays, endless queues… You can’t beat a good sigh & moan in solidarity with the stranger next to you about how ‘unbelievable’ the whole situation is.

You’ve become the queen of snacks

Any time you have friends over you find yourself buying enough snacks to last a long winter, asking every 2 minutes if refills are needed followed by ‘go on sure, what’s one more?’

How to wear floral RN

With spring collections finally hitting down, it’s easy to get swept away with all the new season gorge looks. However, as we know from  ya know , exisitin’ RN it’s COLD A.F.  which means all of our cute Spring looks have been put on ice. Literally.  Fear not however, as we’ve come up with a handy guide to rocking new season florals now.

The trick is? Dare to layer. A simple polo neck worn under a cute floral dress and teamed with ankle boots is a total winner . For seriously cool 90’s vibes, why not layer your floral dress over a thin knit and team with a biker jacket and clunky boots. A chunky knit can transform a floral dress into a cute skirt simply by layering over it. Or if you’re feelin’ v adventurous, layer a button down floral dress over some ripped skinny jeans and biker boots for a hella grunge look!

LOVE IS A LIE & these celeb break ups tell us why.

Like an EMO Posh & Becks ,  our lives were complete when ~rock chick ~ Ashlee married the abso gorge pop punk Pete ( c’mon who didn’t have a crush on him? Guyliner n ‘ all)  Their split sent us into a downward spiral in the form of many Avril Lavigne ballads while vowing to never believe in love again. 

Ok we were obsessed with this relaysh. The STYLE game alone from this unbelievably cool couple was absolute goals, slaying every single party & papp shot in sight. While we were devo by the split & shook by the infamous 2016 VS runway moment, sources are reporting the two have been ‘hanging out’ again – we’re admittedly getting our own hopes up for a stunning relationship rekindle!

One of Hollywood’s most iconic couples for sure, I mean remember thaaat MTV Movie Awards KISS?! As if they didn’t melt our hearts into puddles enough on screen in The Notebook, they totally killed us with couple goals IRL too. We’re obvs delighted both of them are happily moved on & loved up now – plus we can always rewatch The Notebook if ever missing those early 2000s times.

2. BRAD & JEN :
We know it’s V UN-WOKE to be #teamjen in 2018 – after all it was Brad who was married and these women are successful , powerful and not just pawns for the world to PITT
( sorry!) against each other. HOWEVER, we will always fondly remember the golden era of Friends-mania,. A time when Brad & Jen were the perf couple who not only slayed the red carpet together, but delivered one of the best Friend’s scenes  :

Ok Ok hear me out. I know this was a life time ago , and he’s since married one of Hollywood’s  biggest babes and killer actress Jessica Biel (  legit #couplegoals)  and she’s literally become Queen of Las Vegas with her residency, but looking @ old pics of Britney & JT still stings. No one could rock a co ord look quite like them , and our early 00’s hear still pines for a reunion. Or at the very least a killer track they both feature on.

Dry Jan ? These 5 tips will keep you from going totally cray!

January – the Monday-ist month of the year. Broke, bloated and totally partied out? Its time to grab the fleece PJs & avoid any social commitments ( brunch? Oh sorry, I can’t make it – I’m SO swamped … uhhh washing my hair. ) So if you’re looking for things to keep you sane during this bleak, grey month, here’s our top 5 tips to get you from this  ….
to this…

1.Netflix is LIFE. 
Over the last few years Netflix has wormed its way into our lives, starting out as a casual habit and quickly becoming our number 1 Bae. But this month? It’s our literal lifeline.
And what better time for a Friends re-watch binge. Since it was added this month, we here @ Dresses.ie HQ have watched about 150 episodes… could we BE any more obsessed?

2. Bumble that shizz. 
Just ’cause you’re at home with a face full of sudocreme and hair like a crow’s nest doesn’t mean you can’t be ‘social’ .  January is the busiest month for online dating, so now’s the time to line up some dates or at the very least indulge in some harmless flirty texts.
3. Learn how to cook..
My heart says Justeat – my bank balance says – learn how to cook! Youtube is our new BFF when it comes to cooking ideas & recipes. We particularly L-O-V-E The Happy Pear’s channel so many easy, affordable and DAMN tasty recipes! Time to up your food game we think!

4. Give your Spotify a glam make over. 
From gym playlists, to the perfect pre game tunes, now’s the time to de-clutter and re do your Spotify. Release your inner DJ and create a playlist for every type of situation. Chilled Sunday Mornings? How’s about some Kygo. Boy got you down? Dua Lipa to the rescue! Need some Monday morning sass – Oh hay Cardi B! This is the month to tackle this task, your future self will thank you!

5. #selfcare
We know , we know. It’s SUCH a “new year new me” cliche to run out and join a Gym on January 1st – BUT hear me out. At home yoga is free ( THANK YOU YOUTUBE ) and can be the perfect way to wind down after a stressful day of trying to avoid the left over celebrations and deal with fuzzy hair courtesy of our fabulous rain. Channels such as Yoga with Adriene offer a gorge selection of super easy to more advanced lessons. Or, what better way to #selfcare than with a face mask,  bubble bath and a big fat G&T? Whatever floats your boat, January is the perfect ‘me’ month so indulge!

You got this, Gal xoxo
