Trend spotting with Quiz Fairhill Ballymena

 


If you read my post on the discounts involved in Ballymena Means Fashion you'll know that Saturday 8th April is going to be an epic day of shopping and treats for everyone. As part of my coverage of the event I was invited down to Fairhill Shopping Centre in Ballymena (hi) to visit Quiz and see the latest trends that will displayed in tomorrow's fashion show. 

I met the lovely Nikita, who I'd like to thank Up-front for hosting me and showing me round the store, she picked out that pinks, ruffles and embroidered denim are the big trends that they are stocking. 



 

 


Please excuse the changing room lighting but how cute are these jeans?!? I remember rocking a very similar pair a cool *cough*twenty*cough* years ago in the late nineties and I thought I was the bee's knees. Guess what? I still do!

 

 

I really love this cinched top with necklace detail in both the white and the pink but I decided that the pink was my favourite. Partly because it was the totally on trend colour but also it was slightly less sheer. A decent bra will complete the look (seriously Bex, who goes shopping without their favourite bra?!) 

I was very greatful that They let me keep my favourite outfit to show off for you folks. Sadly I couldn't get the pink leather jacket but I may just have to go back for it... just to complete the ensemble!

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…
