Feeling Blue (Emmy's Style)

Hey dolls,

Since so many best dressed celebs were wearing blue at the Emmy's this year, it inspired me to go on the hunt in some of my favourite high street stores and see what blue items I could find. Surprisingly not that many blue items of clothing in the stores and not many great pieces either! I managed to find a couple of pieces I personally like. I looked up Oasis, Awear, Vila, Only, New Look and River Island.

L-R: Julianne Hough, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, Nicole Kidman.
Navy Satin Grandad Collar Shirt - New Look, £22.99
Navy Sequin Longer Length Dress - River Island, £70 
Blue One Shoulder Ruffle Pencil Dress - River Island, £45
Influence Blue Lace Bandeau Prom Dress - New Look, £27.99

What I Did This Week?

Hey dolls,

I've had a quiet enough week this week! With updating my iTouch software to the new iOS 6 my iPod went a bit crazy and shut down for the day (entirely my fault with lack of technical knowledge ;)). My iTouch is where i take most my instagram pics so it was tough having it shut down all day!! I won't lie I did panic :P

19 September - Wednesday

I have very weak nails, they peal all the time (if anyone know's why please tell me!). I was sick of my blank not painted nails so decided to do some DIY polka dot nails :) I tried using bobby pins (hair clips) but that didn't work out for me so I just used the brush! I used 17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Royal Rose,   Rimmel Nail Whitener in White(!) and the last one I can't remember the name of but once I get my hands on it I will update this ASAP! They turned a little too DIY tbh but looked cute!

After DIYing my nails I watched some TV with my mom - she's more of a computer person rather than TV person! Cuddle time :D
Me and Mommy :D

21st September - Friday

Who broke my favourite Wonder Woman glass?! I got a collection of comic glasses in Forbidden Planet in Dublin on St. Patrick's Day this year. There was a set of 4, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern! I got home on Friday to my Boyfriend's house and he sprung it on me like no big deal that he broke one of my collection glasses!! I was gutted - I know it's a glass but it was my fave ;)

21st September - Friday

I was out for a 21st birthday in Limerick City. I wanted to go more casual with my look as I always over dress and just seems like I try too hard (which i totally do :P). I wore Omen (purple) and Half Truth (dark grey) eyeshadow from Urban Decays 25th Anniversary palette! I was not 100% happy with this look because I feel it was too dark and the colours were a bit off compared to my outfit!


22nd September - Saturday
Godmommy and Chloe :)

Saturday was my Goddaughters 1st birthday! She is such a cutie and love her and her mommy to bits :) As I live so far away and due to circumstances beyond my control I couldn't make her birthday party but I bought her a party dress (zebra print princess dress with a collar and little belt) and I was told she had a great day so I'm glad :) Happy 1st Birthday Chlo-Chlo :)

Not my pic ;) represented the point well!
I spent Saturday painting the new kitchen my boyfriend is installing in the house! It was so funny and a lot of fun and really made me happy because it's something I've always wanted seeing those TV adverts and couples are painting and having fun and it's very much something I wanted! And I got it! :) We were only painting the base white for now but I will have a full blog post about the kitchen and little interiors once its done :) Excited? i know I am ;)

Saturday night I cuddles up on the couch with my boyfriend and we watched 50/50! OMG it was so sad :( i didn't know what the movie was about at all! But as I watched more into it it was a little predictable in one part but what a movie! So sad but such a nice movie to watch!

24th September - Monday

I've been having some confidence issues this week with my body and seeing this quote really inspired me! :)

I've been looking at different hair colours to get as my roots have gotten soooo bad! But I want to wait another few weeks before splashing out €140+ on my hair! I have a lot of hair!! So I really like the ombre look and love the light brown colour on top in this pic... the colours look so well together and it is definitely something I'm looking into :)

My Goddaughters Christening

Hey dolls,

As I mentioned in a previous post my BFF had a gorgeous baby girl, Chloe, almost a year ago now on September 22nd 2011. She was christened on May 6th in Sligo and I am so happy that my BFF chose me to be her godmother :)
Me and Sharon the night before the Christening!
Chloe is my second godchild as I am godmother to my cousin Jessica (who is 4 now).

On 5th May, my mom drove to Sligo with me and Daniel (boyfriend) in tow :) We arrived a day early because I wanted to have the weekend there and some bonding time :) And also i didn't want to be travelling the morning of! We got Chinese for dinner and had catch up and I got to spend time with Chloe which is rare because I live so far it's hard to see her often!

Me and Chloe the morning of the Christening :)

On the morning of the Christening it was a little hectic but I'm glad I was there to give Sharon a hand organising things. We got to the church a little before 1 when a lot of friends and family of Sharon's started to show including Chloe's dad and his family and friends.

Parents and godparents! :)

L-R: Priest, Me (godmother), Sharon (Mommy), Baby Chloe,
Paul (Daddy) and Gerrard, (Godfather).

After the church we went to the Swagman is Sligo for some food and chat! We stayed here for the evening but during which time I went and had an outfit change ;) We were meant to be going clubbing that night while Chloe went to her grandparents but with my mom having a 5 hour drive the next morning Dan and myself headed back to the house with her and everyone else headed out!!

How cute is she in her hairband gift :)

I had such a nice time and so glad my mom got to meet Chloe! It was really hard leaving but I had too :( Miss them so much everyday!
