This Weeks Firm Favourites

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you’ve all had a fabulous week so far. I’ve been so busy with work, but am settling in and not feeling like the new girl anymore! I’ve had a great week, maybe not the most productive but sometimes it’s nice to relax at home and just reduce the stress. This post is all about the things I’ve been loving this week.

Suits

Netflix to the rescue again. I’m really loving ‘Suits’ at the moment. I’ve had a lot of unproductive evenings just eating and watching it in bed. This is not great for my waistline but it’s also heaven!

New Nails

I got my nails done again in the lovely Makeup Box in Naas. It’s great going somewhere with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The perfect way to kick off my weekend. I’ve decided not to get my gel nails done as it would be too difficult with the Invisalign, so I’m sticking with Shellac 🙂

New Hair Brush

I’m loving my new wooden brush by Kent. It smoothes hair naturally and the bristles massage my head too. I got it in Boots and it was €10.50 but the quality is worth it. My boyfriend thinks I’m slightly insane but a good hair brush makes all the difference.

Food

Remember my post last week about not being able to eat due to my Invisalign, well this week I’ve more than made up for it. I’ve seriously over done it on the carbs and chocolate. I need to get motivated again as I’m feeling so sluggish but I just keep reaching for the chocolate!

 

Getting used to my Invisalign

After two weeks I can finally close my mouth properly again. Yes it is a small victory but a victory all the same 😛 Excuse the picture, it’s after a long day in work.

My new set of aligners are being put in on Tuesday and I’m praying my little win is not short lived!

 Elie Saab at Paris Fashion Week

Last but certainly not least, I am in love with Elie Saab’s catwalk show at Paris Fashion Week. He is one of my favourite designers and I love everything about the looks he showcased during his ‘Way of the Woods’ show.

So the above pretty much sums up what has made me smile this week. I’m going to the Irish Beauty Show tomorrow too so I will of course keep you all updated on that also. Enjoy the rest of your weekend ❤

Until Next Time My Loves

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

Victoria’s Secret London Show 2014

Hey Guys,

Today’s post is of course about the Victoria’s Secret Show 2014, which took place in London for the first time, last night. Seeing as it was one of the most anticipated shows of the year, it comes as no surprise that it was also one of the most expensive to date too. The show itself was split into six different themes; Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveller, Fairy Tale, Dream Girl, University of Pink and Angel Ball. The catwalk included 47 models strutting their stuff and effectively making every other girl around the world envious! I’ve selected my favourites from each theme and some snapshots of the after party.

The After Party

There’s no arguing that all of the Angels looked stunning, but in my opinion Candace and Lily Aldridge stole the show of the After Party!

I think I need to put down the bar of chocolate right about now!

Hope you enjoyed 🙂
