Guinness Open House Brewery Comes To Belfast

If you know me at all, this might seem like a bit of an unusual post, considering I am 100% not a beer drinker. So why, you may ask, was I frequenting a pop-up Guinness Open House Brewery event on a Wednesday evening? Part of it was all about the curiosity about an exciting new…

10,000 White Balloons, Floating in Studio Souk…

Did you sing that title to the tune of ’99 Red Balloons’? No? Oh well, I tried! After a hard day at work, where better to be than rolling around in a room brimming with 10, 000 balloons, eating pizza and sipping on alcoholic ice-cream floats? That’s precisely what I did on Friday  18th March to celebrate…

High Street Heaven: My #WCCFW Shopping List

As I write this post, the clocks have gone forward, it’s 8PM, it’s still daylight and it finally feels like the perfect time to be writing a blog post on my fashion picks for S/S16. Granted, it’s still a little cold and drizzly outside (and I might even have seen a shower of hailstones in…

An Absolut-ly Awesome Night

Nothing says mystery quite like receiving an email to your office email address, inviting you to a secret party at an undisclosed location on a Friday evening in March.  So what did I do? I turned up of course, but not before Googling the event to satisfy my curiosity. My stealthy Googling told me that…

Having found its home last year in…

My Belfast FASHIONWEEK Round-Up

You would think that after a trip to New York, I’d be totally shopped out, right? Not one bit! Whilst on one hand, my timely visit to NYC meant that I had a whole new wardrobe just waiting to be taken out for a spin at Belfast FASHIONWEEK; on the other hand, I was far…

20 Things In Store At Belfast Fashion Week 2015

Two weeks ago, I attended the very glam Belfast Fashion Week press launch, alongside some fellow bloggers, fashionistas and members of the press, as we eagerly awaited the inside scoop on what is in store for Belfast Fashion Week’s twentieth season.

5 Northern Ireland Designers To Watch This Season

Belfast FASHIONWEEK HQ on Bruce Street, Belfast, came to life once again for the return of the Local Designers and Boutiques catwalk show. I might be a high-street girl at heart, but this is one show that I always look forward to, since it’s a chance to take a glimpse at our incredible local talent. But who turned…

One Sandwich Short Of A Genius @ The MAC – Review

I will confess, I don’t go to the theatre nearly enough. I’m a massive fan of musicals and I ADORE the West End in London (I have seen The Jersey Boys four times and I am not even a little bit ashamed), but when it comes to the local scene, I’m pretty deprived when it…

9 Reasons Why I Can’t Wait for SS15 at Belfast FASHIONWEEK

After a very long and relaxing break from blogging, while I enjoyed the Christmas holidays, ate the last of the leftover Quality Street and settled back into work, spending my morning at the press launch of West Coast Cooler Belfast FASHIONWEEK was the perfect way to ease myself back into all things fashion. I would by no…

November Update: A Month In Photos

When I got started with my blog, I had the best of intentions. I planned to post once a week, at the very least sitting down every Wednesday night to blog without fail. But, alas, a massive workload soon ruined my master plan for a successful blog, which is why I now sit before you presenting a…

Fashion Week Fever

The summer months are starting to fade away, and there is a definite nip in the air as we head towards September, but personally I am thrilled to see the end of the summer sales and brand new collections starting to appear on the rails. I am a bit of a magpie when it comes…
