House of Fraser AW14 Press Preview


I do love the start of a new season and my chance to nosy through House Of Fraser Belfast's new offerings featuring brands such as Biba, Linea, Pied-a-Terre, Mary Portas, Untold, Vince Camuto & Label Lab. With the clothes featured here due in store in the next 6 week it really gives you a chance to plan your wish list!
As always I love a good print. You may not always be a fan of every print but there's definitely a print for everyone and they add a bit of diversity to otherwise boring recurring trends.
I'm a texture obsessive so beads, lace, pleats just please me.
Speaking of texture. Not only is this Biba blazer shining amongst the art deco/metallic print trends, it's also quilted! Apparently quilted pieces are going to be quite popular so keep an eye out. 
Statement necklines, 70s glam prints, chain mail effect & peekaboo hens are a healthy sign that Christmas party season is nearing.

I may not be able to wear a dropped hem myself but you can pretend it's not pretty. And the Gatsby effect proves to be long lasting.
New Danish jewellery brand Dyrberg/Kern stand out in the accessory department. Drooling.
And of course a Benefit are once again on to a winner with their new Christmas sets. At just over £30 for 6x 5g powders (a solo is 8g for only a few pounds less) I need this blush/bronze set. I definitely need it!
My mug because I really love my fringe right now. And why not?!

Thank you to Mark and the team for the evening, it was wonderful as always!

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
