Just a quick post to boast about my new purchase. For the last month i've been on a waiting list for the new Chanel Particuliere nail varnish. That's right, a bloody waiting list. So when I was in Paris over the weekend i popped into BHV, straight to the Chanel counter where I had to wait about four minutes for the lovely shop assistant to have it all bagged up for me and ready to go. It might seem silly to some, but that made my day.

Good Morning

I woke up this morning to a text message from Lil telling me we'd been nominated for the Irish Blog Awards. As you can imagine I was in a great mood all day. We are very excited.


Oh, and silly me, thanks to the lovely people who nominated us.

Im all edge

I think I'm taking this whole lux grunge thing a bit too far but with the spring summer collections taking over the shops I've very little time left before I'll be expected to wear nudes and florals SO I'm making the best of grey and black and studs while it's still acceptable and before I look like an annoying angsty teenager. Saying that, if I did have a couple hundred quid to splash out on a pair of shoes I'd most certainly be buying these, sure they're mens shoes I dont think I care.

These New Puritans

I spend a lot of time going to see bands and really its not their outfits that I'm paying attention to but it is nice when a band are very good as well as being very stylish. Not the Marine and the Diamonds'over the top I'm trying too hard stylish' but just naturally immensely cool. These New Puritans are just that sort of band. After seeing them play Electric Picnic a couple of years ago I was well impressed. Can you imagine wearing that chain top thing at a festival?Well done sir
Of course other people have noticed their brilliance, Hedi Slimane to be exact. They've written music for his Dior Homme shows. Watch this video its really very good.

Christmas Presents

Sonja Rykiel for H&M body.
Chanel Vendetta nail varnish.
Smythson Panama diary.

Lauduree Macaroons. Yummers.


Circus Master

So this is what i got when i went down to the Circus closing down sale last week. Sad time for them, great bargains for me. Green silk draped back Marjan Pejoski dress for €50 and i got this sweet little wooden doll pendent for €25.

I would have put up a picture of me in this dress but it's very cold at home today so i'm keeping my dressing gown on.


New Discoveries

Now it's not exactly new anymore because I came across it before Christmas but I haven't gotten around to writing about it. It being Kling, a newish shop in the 'Italian Quarter' at lower Ormond Quay. When i popped my head in I got talking to Barry who runs the shop. The whole idea is that they don't do a very big range of sizes, most of the stuff is a free size, so that keeps the prices down. And it is very well priced, really cute little dresses for less that €50 and gorgeous little scarves for a fiver. You can shop online here, but it's a really lovely shop so i suggest you drop by and say hello.


Pretty Pictures

Facebook is great sometimes, like earlier when it suggested I become a fan of the Ballerina Project. Facebook seems to know me pretty well because I absolutely love this! It's a collaborative work of dance, fashion and photography. They have a book that you can buy here and you can also buy the prints here.
