“I’m back and forth all the time”

On her latest trip to Dublin to announce her new career venture with Littlewoods Ireland, Una Healy unveiled her AW19 fashion edit with the brand.

Following in the footsteps of former band member, Mollie King – who had an edit with the retailer last year, Una’s capsule collection features pieces that she believes reflects her style and love for versatility.

“I love high street brands so some of my favourites are featured too including V by Very, River Island, Warehouse and Oasis.

“All of the pieces are so versatile so there is something for everyone whether you want to look smart out shopping with the kids or on a glam night out,” revealed the 38-year-old.

Speaking of her favourite piece from the edit, Una added the jumpsuit is her go-to item.

“It’s really comfortable for daytime and like that, you can put a pair of heels with it and you’re good to go for the night time, it just crosses over and it’s really trendy.”

And when it comes to dressing the kids, Una revealed that thankfully, her six-year-old daughter Aofie Belle still allows her mom to dress her.

“I’m lucky in a way that she will still wear what I put on her. But she’s starting to see things that she likes herself when we’re out shopping and she’ll be like ‘I like that’ and although kids clothing is so expensive and she’ll grow out of it in a couple of years I find it hard not to buy it for her because it’s so cute, you know?”

But Una has no plans to make sure Aoife Belle follows in her fashion footsteps admitting that she’ll support her no matter what she chooses to do.

“She’s her own person, you know? I can see so much of me in her all the time but I’ll leave her to decide for herself. I’m not going to push her into it but I’ll totally support her in whatever she wants to do. She’s just being a child right now and loving that.”

Una also revealed that the kids will spend their first-ever Christmas in Ireland this year.

“I’m coming back for Christmas this year which is really nice. I haven’t been back in a few years for Christmas Day – first time in seven years so, I’m really looking forward to that. Bringing the kids back with me as well.”

And we know the first thing Una will do when she hits Irish soil again, “find the chocolate to have with the cup of tea”. Admitting that it’s just not the same Dairy Milk in the UK, Una added that you just “can’t get the Mint Crisp and the Caramello over there.”

The two best bars if you ask us although, a Golden Crisp is up there too.
