Race Day – What We Wore

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend? I am currently nursing a bit of a sore head after a great girls night out. I think we all need to let our hair down a little from time to time. Trying to eat healthy has gone out the window the last two days but I will be back on track tomorrow (hopefully)

We had an excuse to get more glammed up than usual due to the fact it was ‘Ladies Day’ at the races. I had a last minute outfit panic and ended up buying two different options on Thursday evening. I am the worst for doing that to myself, I then feel stressed then until I’m actually in the outfit and popping out the door.

This Week I’m Loving….

Hello Beautiful People ❤

Happy Tuesday! Anyone else back to work today? (sigh) On the plus side it is a short week and the sun is shining. Today’s post is about my favourites from the last week and what has been making me smile over the past few days 🙂 Continue reading

Insurgent Preview 2015

Hello Beautiful People ❤

Happy Paddy’s Day, aka lets be typical Irish and drink too much 😉 It’s great to see that the celebrations are being carried out around the world. Amazing how our little Island can influence other, larger cities around the world, even if it is just for one day.

Yesterday my friend and I were invited to watch the Preview of Insurgent in Dublin. The Divergent sequel staring Shailene Woodley and Theo James was being shown as a ‘premiere’ for Irish bloggers and movie critics / fanatics.

The movie itself was actually really good. It is not usually my kind of film, but I have to say I was kept interested for the entire thing. My friend felt the same. We were made leave our phones outside with the PR firm hosting the event and I think this was great as it ment no distractions.

I really liked the fact that ‘Tris’ played by Shailene Woodley really looked the part. In a lot of cases the protangonist, particularly female ones, are centred around looking sexy. Now while she still looked amazing, the hair was cut short, there wasn’t loads of makeup and not a crop top in site. It was more about the acting than the sex appeal which doesn’t often happen anymore. I was pleasantly surprised.

Excuse the awkward smile, my face still looks puffy with the invisalign! I really do love the necklace from Newlook, it’s perfect now for Spring and Summer ❤

It was a lovely evening spent with my best friend. The screening was organised extremely well and the location was perfect. I would actually highly recommend seeing the film, particularly if you’ve seen Divergent.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone ❤

NYFW Favourites

Hey Guys,

Anyone who knows me will know that New York Fashion Week is like my Christmas. I have been glued to every and any online outlet for the designs since the shows kicked off. One of these days I will get there and be witnessing it all first hand. One day…..

I couldn’t wait to see the Victoria Beckham show as I think her designs are amazing. Needless to say the catwalk did not disappoint. Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors are also firm favourites of mine. So here are some of my top picks from the shows so far, I hope you enjoy 🙂

Victoria Beckham

 Diane von Furstenberg

Oscar de la Renta

Monique Lhuillier

Tommy Hilfiger

Zac Posen

 Michael Kors

Herve Leger by Max Azria

I particularly admired Peter Copping’s designs for Oscar de la Renta, which did not disappoint despite the late namesake not being this year’s creator.

The FROW’s style was also particularly admirable as always. I will be doing more on some of their looks later in the week.

Until Next Time My Loves

A Bit About Me

Hey Guys,

Happy Friday the 13th (cue the dramatic undertones) I know it’s supposed to be unlucky but it’s Friday so I’m focusing on that aspect. For today’s post, I’ve done a little ‘get to know me’ feature. I’ve been blogging for almost 8 months now and I felt that I should give a little insight into who I am and what makes me tick.

IMG_0958 (1)

Favourite Colour: Black I can’t really say black can I? I’ll go for Blue. I love cobalt blue, it looks great with a tan!

Biggest Fear: Losing someone I love. I’ve always had an irrational fear of losing the people that mean the most to me. I was one of those nightmare kids who panics over everything! Sharks and flying are a close joint second!

My Most Irrational Fear: Cows. Yes I know it’s an odd thing to be afraid of, hence me acknowledging that it is an irrational fear. They freak me out with their staring and mooing.

My Pet Hate: People looking down on others and being disrespectful. I just don’t think anyone has the right to portray that kind of behaviour, no matter who they are.

I also cannot tolerate cruelty, whether it’s towards people or animals. It is not so much a ‘pet hate’ but actually something that really bothers me.

My Favourite Animal: My dog Belle is my favourite little person in the world. She has such a funny little personality. Aside from Dogs, elephants are my favourite ‘wild’ animal. They are so gentle and wise.

My Education: I have an honours degree in Marketing. I graduated in 2014 and although it was stressful, I loved what I was studying and have some amazing memories from the four years I studied. It is true what they say you can make some life long friends in college.

Three Things I believe cannot be bought:

  1. Style
  2. Manners
  3. Kindness

My Favourite Singer: I’m a huge music fan and I like a wide variety of different artists from Pink Flyod to Eminem to Beyonce, but Emeli Sande is the probably the voice that I could listen to all day. Her album ‘Our Version of Events’ is timeless.

My Most Annoying Habit: Being late! I wouldn’t mind I am never late to work, I am however always late to meet my friends and my boyfriend. One of my best friend’s pet hates is when people are late, it’s a wonder she hasn’t killed me. My poor boyfriend is used to it.

My Star Sign: Pisces, I’m a water baby. I was always swimming as a child and find it so therapeutic. Not sure where they got some of the characteristics below, but ‘has the last word’ is me for sure! 😛

The Only Movie to Make Me Cry: There have only ever been two movies that have made me cry; The Lion King and I am Sam. I’m not really a crier when it comes to movies and I don’t like soppy films at all, but these two got me!

Favourite Actress: I’d say Sandra Bullock. I just feel like we would get a long if we met. Realistically it would just be me hugging her while she tries to get away, but l’d like to think we would get along 😉

Favourite Actor: This is a predictable one but it has to be Robert Downey Jr. I just love everything about him. I’m also a huge Johnny Depp fan. I love him for all his weirdness.

The Best Advice I’ve Ever Received: Persistence is key. My parents always told me that if I commit to something I must be persistent as that is the only way I will succeed. They have their moments.

Eating Habits: I could pretty much out eat anyone I’ve ever met, if I allow myself to, I love all types of food and am never full!

My Favourite Hobbies: Aside from eating, I love to shop and travel. I am fashion obsessed and I am a danger to my bank account when I enter a store!

 

I also love to travel, particularly city breaks. I love experiencing different cultures and believe it makes you a more rounded person over all. I am fortunate enough to have seen some amazing cities such as Prague, Edinburgh Amsterdam, New York, Bratislava and I plan to see many more.

Random Fact: I really dislike Valentine’s Day, I think it has become all about money and about popularity. I’ve never had a bad Valentine’s Day but I’m just not a fan. Love should be shown all year round and not confined to one day.

My Family: I am an only child. I am extremely lucky however that I have a very close family and so was never a ‘lonely’ child. I consider my first cousins my siblings and I honestly would be lost without my amazing family.

Beliefs: I don’t believe in luck. I do believe in faith (I think) but when it comes to luck, I think we make our own.

What I’m worst at: I hate saying goodbye to people, if it is only for a few weeks, it makes me really sad. I really can’t deal with long term good byes 😦

My Life: My Family, Close Friends and my Boyfriend are amazing people and I am truly lucky that they make up my life. It’s the little things they do that make me love them all the more.

I need to take more pictures of the people I love as the above doesn’t reflect even nearly everyone!

So that’s a little insight into my life, I was unsure whether to do this post initially but I personally like to know about the author of blogs I read. I hope you enjoyed and are making plans for a wonderful weekend!

Until Next Time My Loves
