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 honest, we had been in the course of a subject in rural center Eire in early autumn, so I believe everyone anticipated it and got here properly ready. I felt like a little bit of a nutter for carrying 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 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 truffles with spicy mango salsa. It’s easy, tasty and an excellent recipe for households because the elements are cheap and simple to purchase, plus it may be made in an enormous batch and leftovers freeze properly. 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 truffles 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!
However it’s all about teamwork, and I’m so grateful to the implausible crew 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 onerous 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 buddies. 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weekend move however I made a decision to drive everybody again to Dublin on Saturday night time as we really feel too outdated for tenting.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 high of the record.
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 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 received 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 high 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 outdated buy from ASOS, however they nonetheless have related variations on the positioning, comparable 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 buddies!
It simply took perpetually to wash all of it off that night time and I’m nonetheless discovering bits of glitter in every single place.
To smoke up my eyes, I used a combo of the brand new SoSu Sizzling Hearth palette…
and the City Decay Bare Warmth palette. Each have some beautiful heat colors, each matte and shimmery, and I discovered them straightforward to mix.
I added some further sparkle to the internal 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 stuffed in my brows utilizing the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown – a stunning product and it stayed on all day, regardless of the rain.
