My week on Instagram ♥

From going to the Zoo, trying to be a grown up and spending way too much time on Instagram, my week has been relatively quiet.

This week has involved a lot of me sitting on my behind and watching too much TV. Firstly, I’m very excited that New Girl and The Mindy Project has returned. Secondly, Belfast Fashion Week model and former Miss Derry, Ashleigh Coyle, is on Big Brother. Woohoooo! Good luck, Ashleigh. ♥

Charity Challenge Show at Stormont

I’m sure you’re all aware that on Friday evening I was taking part in Belfast Fashion Week’s Charity Challenge at Stormont. As soon as I was asked to take part in this project I was extremely excited and to start shopping at my chosen charity, the Northern Ireland Hospice. Myself and twelve other fashion bloggers and stylists picked our chosen charities and began the process of putting togther our collections.

For the past few weeks, I gathered some looks from their Andersonstown and Finaghy stores. I wanted to select a collection of looks that represented my own personal style. On the night, I brought along a few of my own accessories to complete the looks. I was so excited to see my styles on the runway at the very lavish Stormont. I’m not going to lie, I was petrified of walking the runway with the model. At the end of the day it was about the charities and I couldn’t have been happier with my collection.

I’ve uploaded ten of my pieces so have a look and I would love to know what all of you lovelies think! ♥

Magnificent body art by the extremely talented, Paddy Mc Gurgan. I could not stop staring at the model, her eyes and the extreme detailing was out of this world!

The stunning Stormont as our backdrop. It was the perfect setting for this amazing show, although I felt so sorry for the models walking down those stairs all night! 😉
