The importance of Girls Night





It's a Monday night and I'm sitting next to my one of my best friends in the cinema, watching the hilarious Girls Trip movie, and I haven't stopped laughing. Girls Trip is about a bunch of friends - Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish - coming together after a long time apart, reconnecting with each other, reliving the good old days and coming to realisations about their relationships and futures during a wild weekend in New Orleans. All I can think of that this movie sums up my relationship with my girls. I am here to admit that I am one of those annoying people that found my soul mates as a teenager and have been lucky enough to grow and love with the greatest women in the world but it hasn't always been that way. 


We have laughed together, loved together, drank and thrown up together, and we have been absolutely outrageously foul mouthed together - one of my highlights of the film was that the women had filthy chats that we could actually relate to - I love it! We have seen each other through weddings, births, emigrations, good times and bad times. We have grown up, moved away, come back and, for those rare nights that we're all in the same place, partied like we're seventeen again. They just get me.


It is important to have that friendship. Whether you meet in school, university, your local pub bathroom, or the chippy after closing time, it is so important to have that special group of friends who know you and love you for everything you are. 


Of course, after a solid 15-20 years of friendship, priorities change. Those families and responsibilities that we've all collected take up a lot of our time and we don't get to spend as much of it together as we would wish. This is why 'Girls Night' is such an important night. You get the chance to reconnect. You get the chance to reminisce. You get the chance to hang out with your favourite people and just laugh for hours on end. These are moments I hold dear and as I'm sitting in the darkened depths of the Dublin Road Moviehouse Cinema listening to 200+ women laughing their titties off I am suddenly overwhelmed by the fact that I am not alone in appreciating this. We are not alone.


Girls night frickin' rocks!







So thank you to Moviehouse Cinemas and the CoolFM team for hosting us at the screening of Girls Trip, I'll be heading back with the rest of my girls to see it again as I know that they will love it!

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…
