live lounge amazingness with Fearne & Ellie


live lounge at BBC radio one, hear the interview here

I'm a huge BBC radio one fan. I literally have it one all the time online. Fearne Cotton does a live lounge once or even twice a week, not sure. Anyway Ellie Goulding was is yesterday. As Fearne said, best live lounge of the year without a doubt!!

When Fearne took over from Jo Whiley i wasn't too thrilled with the change, but I've really come round to her. She can wake me up like no other! I am one of these people who often blurs the line between real friends and celebrity's or characters. So if you ever hear me say her name in conversation: "oh yeah, Fearne said that the other day". I do in fact realise me and Fearne aren't friends, she's just my radio friend.

Here are a few of her quirky fashion moments..




                           
in conclusion, we like Fearne, we also really like Ellie!

the past month in words for me

bailout bailout bailout ~ imf ~ snow ~ xfactor ~ brian cown ~ snow ~ cold ~ protest ~ students ~ treacherous ~car breaking down ~ weather ~ cross people ~ election ~ snow ~ politics ~ ice ~ dublin bus curtailments ~ budget ~impassable ~royal wedding ~ wikileaks ~ JMJ~  insuficiant funds ~ toyshow ~ presents ~ shopping ~ budget ~twitter~ weather ~ stress ~ thaw ~ sleep.


treacherous was definitely my favorite.

piv via here (fave blog of the moment)

Pretty much sums up what I got out of it i think. I have mostly worried a lot about it all. Being glued to twitter and the news has not helped. I'm hearing al lot of complaining but not many solutions, sure this is it.
The only thing to do now is put on Christmas FM and get on with it..


chin up blog-land :)

CoraLlei handbags...yes please

My one and only favorite thing is a new handbag. 
Mostly I like to drool over them online, however i got to drool over some real life handbags at the Xpose Xmas Xperiance. Nothing can make my day like a good handbag and the Coral Lei bags are no different. 
My mother dragged me to the RDS that day, and yes she physically dragged me off the couch, there's no stoppin' that woman when she wants to go somewhere.
I was far more impressed with the Xpose show compared to Toys for Big Boys. All they had was cars, those gels that heat up with you smush them, about 4 palm readers and more cars. Although i did have free tickets.

Xpose Xmas Xperiance was €20, which was far too much, no student price either which annoys me to no end. Anyway they stalls were good. Saw the Stellar people, of course this was before Fade Street, so didn't get an autograph! Me and the mother watched a few people get botox...like just lying there gettin' a bitta botox...weird! I couldn't stop watching actually and then we met Lorna from CoraLlei.

clearly I'm only thrilled/petrified of getting my photo taken

 
I'm pretty sure this is my fave, love the chain detail and the colour.


All the bags are made from natural products, i have no idea how this is possible, but i love that. Fashion and doing my bit to save the world.


 love this fringe one too the clasp to open in was so cute.


the lovely Lorna wrapping up my bag.
Here's the  Facebook and the Website, enjoy!

unrequited love for Mary

Hello Mary*. 
I recently remembered how very pretty you are and how cool you seemed to be and was wondering if you'd like to go out sometime? I know it's been ages, and that over the course of this time you may have gotten less pretty or less cool, or I may have gotten less pretty or less cool, but I'd like to find out either way.

John*

Now if you're chuckling away to yourself reading this, or if you think what awful novel did i lift this from. I can confirm that this is an actual facebook mail my friend got today. 

I couldn't not share.. 

First of all, its vaguely insulting, 'less pretty or less cool', and he's still willing to go out with her?! what a catch! My brain is baffled. Is this a bet or a joke? Apparently it is not. Mary tells me that the young man is a bit socially retarded.....no way, really?

..and since we're all sharing i have to say that this is not the first time young Mary has been the object of a creepy guys affection. 
For years, Mary came home from college, wrecked, in need of a nap and flopped onto her bed. usually throwing her books, laptop, clothes around the place for the relief of pjs and a duvet. Not once thinking she was being watched....that's right.
In all the years she floated about the privacy of her room, she didn't close the curtains. Recently the parents of the young man living behind Mary happen to be in his room, only to see herself coming out of the shower, i wont bore you wit the details, but there may have been nudity involved...i know i know! This was meant to be a PG blog.

Anywho, they went on to tell her parents and poor Mary was sat down to let her know that leaving curtains open and prancing around you're room naked is really only inviting Peeping Tom's to have a gawk.

There you go people, be warned, even if you have trees outside the window, close your curtains!

I know Irish guys sometime get a hard time from us young ladies. But i think they're going to have to try a lil harder..




*name have been changed to make this a little less embarrassing...just a little.
