Mental Pause...

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

So as I said in my last post, I had completed 49 posts and this was set to be my 50th.. well..clearly I took a mental pause that day cos this is only my 44th post!? I forgot I had undeleted drafts that were being counted as posts.. so oops!! sorry! For my real 50th I will do my giveaway as promised! So for this post i thought I would answer the questions you guys very kindly left for me, feel free to leave me more for my real 50th post too! :)
Also while flicking through a back issue of British Elle i found these amazing shots that i thought id share, I love looking through old magazines to see things with new eyes...

Love this sequin dress and saftey pin bracelet

Amazing necklace..

I think this model (whoever she is!) expresses such amazing energy in this photos! Love them!

hmm, good question! id have to say Alice in Wonderland! I realise she's not real but who wouldnt wanna live in a land of complete fantasy and chase after a white rabbit!

Unfortunately not an orginal answer here, but i started my blog through reading Fashion Toast and then eventually plucking up the courage to write my own.
What do you do for fun?
Apart from blogging? lol I love going to the cinema with my bf, walking my dogs around Hillsborough Forest (near my house and so beautiful), watching Americas next top model and Project runway, shopping and hanging out with friends drinking tea :)
Whats your most favourite place to be?
On a regular basis.. in my parents apartment up at the north coast of Ireland with my bf looking out at the sea, Favourite place Ive visited would be New York and place id most like to visit would be New Zealand and Japan.
What is your dream job?
I have so many! one day I want to own my boutique selling my own accesories and clothing as well as flowers and cupcakes and trinkets of all kinds..Id also like to work for a magazine like Elle or Nylon, id also love to working in the buying department of ASOS.
Do you have any brothers and sisters?
Yes I have one younger brother Adam 23, and one younger sister Sophie 21. I recently convinced my sister to start a blog and you can check her out at
