My Week On Instagram 

So December has officially started.. Are you all breaking out the festive films or nervous as you’ve realised just how much you’ve to do?! I’ve popped my Christmas cherry by watching Elf and Miracle on 34th Street to get myself in the spirit. It’s hard to believe how fast this year has went, pretty cliché but it’s true.

I was sooo happy to finally get an OOTD feature up for all of you. Lets hope the weather improves for some more style posts. This week has been all about the Christmas Markets in Belfast (my Instagram is loaded with images), I’ve spent so many evenings walking around sampling food, nibbling on sweet treats and indulging in some Winter accessory shopping. City Hall just looks sooo pretty dressed up for Christmas, such a gorgeous backdrop for the markets.

I also treated myself to my first ever Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows. The pigmentation is crazy and the texture is absolute heaven! I’ll definitely continue to build my collection, I’m just so happy that Ireland and the UK can finally purchase them!

My Week On Instagram

This has been a sickening week for me – I’ve officially lost my voice but on a very exciting note I made my choice regarding my new camera. The magnificent Olympus Pen E-LP7 officially belongs to me. After lengthy research, I decided to go with the Pen as it was better suited for me and what I do. Don’t get me wrong, the Canon 700d sounded unbelievable but I’m happy with my choice. I’ll be sharing which style I opted for over on my Instagram later today so be sure to keep an eye out.

I’ve been absolutely loving the Real Techniques brushes from the bold metals collection. Such luxurious and soft brushes and perfect for creating a flawless look. I hope you’ve all had a great week and an even better weekend.

If any of you have any tips or tricks regarding the Olympus camera, please feel free to leave me a comment. See you all in my next post.

My Week On Instagram

There is a very Autumnal theme in this week’s Instagram post. I’ve been busy shooting some fresh outfits for all of you, I’ve even went on a little adventure and shot an OOTD on a very beautiful beach (you can read it here). Over the past week, I’ve had a few new beauty products to try and two in particular that I’ve been loving is the L’Oreal matte foundation and the Clarins lip oil. The foundation is marvelously matte and such a lightweight feel for an everyday look. The price is obviously appealing (£7.99 in Superdrug) and the lasting power is pretty impressive, a small touch up to my nose and T – zone is all that is needed.

I’ve mentioned on my Instagram that I’ve been testing out the Clarins lip oil and I’m really impressed. The honey shade is so hydrating on the lips and I hope that it helps combat my dryness during Winter. I put a balm on every day and night and sometimes they can still feel that little bit dry. Here’s hoping!

My Week On Instagram

Today’s post is going to be short but sweet with some Instagram shots. I have been so busy the past few week’s that I haven’t had proper time to schedule a post for today. I plan on shooting some looks over the weekend so I will be back on track for Monday. Truth be told I’m still in awe from meeting my idol, Olivia Palermo. Apologies if you’re sick of me talking about it but you’re going to be hearing about this one for a long time to come! Haha.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you’re getting up to. See you all on the flip side.

#LFW || Best Bloggers To Follow On Instagram

With London Fashion Week SS16 just around the corner, I wanted to share and update my collection of blogger’s to follow during the week long festivities. I shared the same post last year (you can read it here) but this season I’ve updated my bloggers to follow. I still have some old favourites included but I have discovered some new bloggers over the past few months.

Taking place from 18th-24th September 2015, it is the most prestigious week long fashion extravaganza to hit the UK. I am hoping to go to February’s shows as it is for their AW16 showcase and also my birthday week. I’m much more of an Autumn/Winter baby so I would definitely prefer to go during this time.

Over the week I am constantly glued (more so than usual) to my Instagram feed. For today’s post I wanted to share my five favourite bloggers and vloggers to follow during LFW. Like I’ve already said, I included some golden oldies and new stylish ladies to keep an eye on during the week.

Hannah Crosskey from A Fashion Fix: A classic girl who’s OOTD posts are within the elite streets of London town. The iconic town houses and chic gardens are a constant feature within her posts. A regular at LFW, Hannah is definitely one to follow for up to date information and beautiful style shots.

Louise O’ Reilly from Style Me Curvy: It’s only natural that I include a fellow Irish blogger in the mix. Louise is one of the friendliest and down to earth girls I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. She has won various awards for her blog and is an inspirational ambassador for gorgeous girls with beautiful curves. Her Instagram shots are so pretty and definitely worth mentioning for LFW.

Philippa Bloom & Sarah Tankel Ellis from We Are Twinset: A new addition to my LFW follow, these two girls have been creating a storm within the blogging community. I had the pleasure of meeting Philippa last year and she is equally beautiful in real life. They have such fabulous style and are greatly known within the London fashion scene as they have been stylists for a few years now. I can’t wait to see what they will be sharing during the week, no doubt they’ll get some backstage shots.

Victoria from In The Frow: An oldie but goodie, Victoria is a girl with white hair, tattoos and amazing style. She can rock pretty much any look and her shots from LFW are just so beautiful. She also has a You Tube channel so you can see the week long festivities through her eyes along with some behind the scenes action and make up tutorials.

Sandra Hagelstam from 5 Inch And Up: The absolute pro and in a league of her own when it comes to style and blogging, Sandra is a must follow in general. Her shots are incredibly raw and her looks are bold and brave. A lover of all things designer, she is my high end blogger that I love to follow as I live and breathe these designers vicariously through her.

I hope I have you all equipped for LFW, I just can’t wait to see all of the glorious shows unfold through the eyes of these amazing bloggers.
