My Favorite...

i need more candles than this 

...Day of the year is upon us! im a valentines baby, apparently i was the only girl born in the hospital that day, not sure if its true but its the story im sticking too. Some people are not a huge fan of birthdays, they think of it as getting old, but i am not one of those people. Your birthday is the one day of the year u don't have to feel guilty taking a compliment, u don't have to be nice or go places you don't want to, you don't have to share, i loathe sharing stuff i really want, basically everyone is at your beck (sp?) and call. I like this! Also i don't ever have to feel sad about being unloved on valentines day......phew!

I shall do my best to share the love today!

this is a very selfish blogpost!

Alice Halliday

This week i came across an amazing new designer Alice Halliday. She's from Cork but has the most beautiful soft English accent. Didn't get a chance to snap pics of all her stuff as my camera is too big and I'm not co-ordinated enough! so just decided to stalk her online and found out Florence....yeah the one with the machine, wore one of her design. 

Alice's grad collection

have a gawk at her Facebook here, some gorgeous stuff on it. The coral colour's are my fav atm and every piece has such detail. So pretty, I look forward to being rich and commissioning her to make me something beautiful!

something new and interesting eh?

Enjoy the weekend!


Let me share the time I became all earthy and tried to make a hair mask. I always plan to make these face creams and hair products after reading about them in magazines. Of course i usually don't have avocado or malt vinegar and another suspicious ingredient one might have lying about the house. However this time i was watching Four Live (the first and only time i have watched it) on RTE. This occasion they whipped up an egg, milk, extra virgin olive oil, manuka honey and a banana. they whipped it up in a bowl and slopped it into your wan's hair. my dismay the banana was STILL there this girl. After a good bit of rinsing and repeat it was obvious that i was getting no where, and so with 20 minutes to my bus i had to blow dry my hair and leg it. Bits of banana were being bruushed outta of my hair for day...

..but yes it was glossy and very very soft...

i bet she's put the odd banana in her hair
