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…

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. In keeping with their them, 20 models strutted their stuff through BFW HQ at…

I’m BACK! 10 Things I’ve Been Doing This Summer

This blog post is part apology, part catch-up and part a kick up the backside to begin blogging again. Since returning from my holiday to Greece – you know, that one that I couldn’t stop blogging about – things have been a little crazy. Not only did I start a new job, I also made…

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…

5 Dresses I LOVED at the Oscars 2015

I’ll admit it – I still haven’t watched the Oscars! Thanks to the joys of full-time work, I was forced to be sensible and go to bed at a reasonable hour, but one thing I never miss out on is the fashion. From bold, statement reds to shimmering metallics, the Academy Awards red carpet was…

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…

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…

Red Hot High-Street at Belfast Fashion Week

Last week, the gorgeous Belfast Fashion Week models took to the catwalk to show off the best of Autumn/Winter 2014. 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…

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…

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…

Blurred Lines

Now that you’ve had an insight into some of my favourite beauty products (if not, click to see my make-up bag post), it’s time to introduce you to my photography. Now before you judge, these aren’t even close to my usual types of photographs. My Canon EOS1000D usually comes out on sunny days at the…

What’s Inside My Make-Up Bag

Hi everybody, You’ll see lots of different types of posts over the next few weeks, but to kick off my new blog and give you a chance to get to know me a little, I thought I would give you a little tour of my make-up bag. Now bear in mind that as I still live at…
