Saturday AM Show: Transitional Dressing

Hey guys,

So just getting around to posting a few pics from my styling segment on TV3s Sunday AM show which was aired on Sunday the 11th.  The theme was transitional dressing and I think it's something that stresses a lot of us out when the weather plays havoc with our wardrobe choices.  All the looks were chosen from Douglas Court Shopping Centre and I have to say they have such a great selection of shops out there.  

Hope you enjoy the pics!

The Saturday AM Show

On Saturday I was up in Dublin styling looks for Douglas Court Shopping Centre for my regular styling feature on TV3's Saturday AM show. For this slot I focused on choosing looks that were really going to help your wardrobe transition from Summer to Autumn.  The weather is so crazy at the moment that I know people want to buy great basic pieces that they can style up depending on the weather.
Here are a few pics from the show.  Sorry about the crappy quality they were just a few quick shots from my phone.  If you missed the show and want to check it out you click on the links below:

All clothing is from Quiz, New Look, Verso and Vero Moda all available at Douglas Court Shopping Centre.

Cork Independent - Victoria Beckham is never So Last Season…

Hey Stylish Folk,

here's my latest fashion column for the Cork Independent where I discuss colour blocking by way of the ever stylish Victoria Beckham.

Cork Independent - Victoria Beckham is never So Last Season…: I’ve got a lot of admiration for Victoria Beckham. Never has a celebrity managed with such success to somehow make us all forget the horrors that was her sartorial style which peaked to new heights of awfulness circa Baden Baden 2006.

Saturday AM Show

Last Saturday I had one of my regular styling slots on TV3's Saturday AM show.  I showcased 6 looks from Opera Lane showing how to dress for your summer holidays!

There's something about packing for holidays which fills us with dread but by choosing some staples you can take the stress out of putting together your summer looks.

Models were from Assets Model Agency.

Think Pink

Today I spent a lazy day wandering around the Botanical Gardens in Dublin.  It's one of my favourite places to visit and it's located right by one of my favourite restaurants The Washer Woman in Glasnevin. So perfect after a lovely Sunday brunch.

There was a cactii exhibition going on there today and being a collector of these prickly beauties I had to go take a look and be inspired by what my cactii might grow up to be.  I was also surprised by how much bright pink there was in the plants and flowers and my GAP jacket fitted right in!

New Year Means Wedding Planning!

It seems like I haven't blogged in soooo long and that's probably because I haven't!  Things have been pretty hectic so blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.  As some of you know I got engaged in September while in Portugal for a friends wedding but decided not to really do too much planning till the new year even though of course I had to do at least one Pinterest board but I mean who could resist a bit of pinning!  So here we are in January and I'm raring to go with the organising.

Rob surprised me over dinner in a lovely tapas restaurant which is our favourite food and chose this ring as my surprise ring but knowing how fussy I am he said I could choose my own ring when we got back to Ireland but I have to say if this was the real deal I'd be more than happy with it so I have to give him some credit on knowing what I like. See the boy does listen!  That said I'm beyond excited to get my actual ring which is currently being made.  It was a total surprise and looking back I'm surprised Rob wasn't acting more nervous as we walked to dinner but looking back he was cool as a breeze.  He later told me he had wanted to propose on a gorgeous beach near our hotel but as it was very windy that evening he knew there was no way he was getting me down there and being a complete boozehound he knew I'd want to hit the bars after dinner.

After dinner we went to a cute little bar in Lagos town and the bartender made us a special shot and gave one to every one in the bar for a toast to us. Here's a pretty badly taken photo by the barman as we prepared to drink our engagement shots which my bridesmaids had blown up and put onto canvas in an Andy Warhol, Pop Art style.  The engagement wasn't full of grand romantic gestures but it was very us and that's the main thing. Very relaxed and low key.  I'm sure lots of my friends are expecting me to be a complete Bridezilla but thankfully that hasn't happened yet but it's early days!

So that's where I am so far on the wedding preparations. I'll try not to drive you all completely mad over the next while with endless wedding posts so I'll keep them to a minimum!

Looking forward to keeping you all posted though and sharing my wedding plans with you.
