What I thought of the Mi Pac Rucksack*

Between being out and about trying to get my Fitbit steps up to scratch, and getting up at the crack of dawn to go the gym, there’s one thing that really comes in handy, and that’s a backpack. Since leaving school (which seems like a lifetime ago), a backpack hasn’t been something that I have…

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…

Belfast Fashion Week Celebrates 21 Seasons

West Coast Cooler Belfast Fashion Week – one of the most eagerly anticipated events in any Belfast fashionista’s calendar. For me, this would be my sixth season, but on the 21st January, the event itself was very fittingly launching its 21st season, yet another milestone for founder Cathy Martin. 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.

The Holiday Edit: Greece Fashion Wishlist

My Greek adventure is getting closer by the day! It’s got to that time of the week where I just want to pack up and go, but instead I have decided to create a little fashion edit to keep my excitement at bay. Most years when I go on holiday, I buy an entire new…

The Jumpsuit Edit: 9 of the Best SS15 Jumpsuits

Well, this post has been a long time coming. Any of my friends will know that I don’t just like jumpsuits; I have a full-blown, slightly unhealthy obsession with them, and am building quite a ridiculous collection. I vaguely remember shopping with my mum just before Christmas 2013, telling her absolutely not to buy me…

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…

Recycling at its best – Junk Kouture

Who says that fashion is all about expensive fabrics and designer labels? The beauty of a show-stopping piece of clothing lies in the creativity of the design, and what better a way to celebrate this than with the all-Ireland Junk Kouture competition? If you aren’t familiar with this design and recycling competition, for students in…

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…

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

It’s officially the first of December – where did the time go? It seems no time since I was enjoying my long summer nights, enjoying barbecues and soaking up the rays during our unexpected heat-wave, and now I am cozied up in my onesie with Grey’s Anatomy, lusting over McDreamy and preparing for the Christmas…

In true Belfast Fashion Week style, guests were treated to a series of three catwalk shows, celebrating the best of Northern Ireland’s online retailer, Excel Clothing and, of course, the high-street trends. As a high-street…

The Style Diaries: What I Wore At Belfast Fashion Week

Between an exceptionally busy couple of weeks in work, and a number of other things taking up my time, it has been a hectic couple of weeks in my world. However, one of the nicer events taking up my time was Belfast Fashion Week. I have been attending Belfast Fashion Week religiously for two years…

A Bloggers Guide to Belfast FASHIONWEEK!

Yesterday, I received a challenge from fellow blogger Louise Vance. Having watched fashion stylist Rachel Zoe’s video on New York Fashion Week from a blogger’s perspective, she decided to give the concept a Belfast FASHIONWEEK twist. Taking the questions from Rachel Zoe’s vlog, she composed her own little questionnaire to find out what Northern Ireland’s…

What I Wore: Afternoon Tea With A Twist

While the thought of afternoon tea totally appeals to me (buns, scones, pastry… what’s not to like?) the fact that I absolutely detest tea tends to stand in my way. However, last week’s event at House of Zen in St Anne’s Square, Belfast, was the answer to all of my problems! Advertising a twist on…

The ‘Lauren’ Necklace: The Secret Closet

Like most women, my shopaholic tendencies are somewhat out of control, and can range from anything to fitness gear to a new pair of heels. But more recently, my poison has been statement jewellery – something which I have gathered a large collection of, but I am always on the look out for a new…

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…

Outfit Post: Graduation

So this week, I graduated from the University of Ulster (with first class honours, as it happens, not that I would be one to show off!!). Of course, after the excitement of results had subsided, my biggest question was what I was going to wear. Graduations can be tricky to dress for, and the fact…
