Choose Irish: Accessories - Úna Burke

Hey Everyone,

This is the third post in my new series where I will be introducing you to different Irish
fashion designers and brands to showcase the range of amazing talent we have right on our
doorstep in an attempt to show you why you should, choose Irish! 

When you buy Irish not only are you supporting our home grown talent you are also buying
quality, sometimes unique and always beautiful pieces. 

Today it's time to look at Accessories and Úna Burke.
I've admired the work of Irish designer Úna Burke for quite a while now, however I would imagine she was brought to a lot of your attention when her pieces appeared in the Hunger Games. Her leather accessories scream high fashion whilst appealing to the masses. Úna's high quality accessories are crafted by hand in London. They are made using Vegetable Tanned leathers and solid brass fittings from the UK and Italy, which means she's up there when it comes to ethical trading. 

Úna's pieces have a huge celebrity following, and you can see why:

Cora Llei was recognised as a brand to be noticed by Brown Thomas who featured her in their 'Create' exhibition which showcases Irish designers for a month in store. She was also a finalist in the 2014 Kerry Fashion Week for Accessory designer.

Happy New Year and Resolutions

Hey Everyone,
Happy New Year! 2014 was a hectic, busy and sometimes super stressful year although it was a great year for Love, Life and Makeup including the launch of an online magazine (with the help of some friends). Here's hoping that 2015 is even better...


I try not to set to many New Year Resolutions as I'm pretty bad at keeping them, however these are the things I hope to achieve / work on this year: 

1. Eat better (already started making healthy smoothies every morning) and try to find a new attainable source of exercise!

2. Try not to stress and worry so much about work and relax more when I get home! 

3. Get out more and try to be more social!

4.  One I strive for every year is to be a better, kinder and more caring person

5. Plan things / events to look forward to instead of dewling on the negative and getting stuck in a rut! 

Have you got any New Years Resolutions?
