This weekend i was working at a small slice of London Fashion Week at the Roberto Cavalli Party in London. (I was meant to stay the week but unfortunately the National Ploughing Championships are on and i'm working at them too - I KNOW, lets never speak of this again)....anyways.......
As you can imagine Roberto Cavalli likes thinks big, over the top and with no expense spared. My eyes were nearly falling outta my head the entire time, the chandeliers, the canap├ęs, the fashion, the fake boobs, the celebs.... it was like being in an episode of the only way is Essex but x100,000,000 (no exaggeration!)

Unfortunately i was run of my feet showing Pixie Lott where the toilets were and the like to take any photos, but all i can tell you is that Una Healy from the Saturdays does not look preggers but is a babe. Cher Loyd is a midget, and a babe, and all the cast of Made in Chelsea are babes.
 (OK, enough name dropping)

Now go check out Rosemary MacCabe's Fash Blog as she will give you the real Fashion Week insight!

counting sheep

Five subtle hints to suggest you are not getting enough sleep..

  • you wake up after a short 'apres-work nap' assuming that the clock saying 7:00 means its time to get ready for work. (You know you're really really tired if you actually get in the car and head to the office). STOP its 7pm, there's still time to watch online telly and eat toast.
  • skipping meals/bathroom breaks - because that would be too much effort
  • seeing sheep - check your surroundings, are you on a farm? NO? Ok you're now so tired you're visualizing those sheep you used to count
  • sending long and detailed descriptions of toilet facilities to the wrong person, or just any old email to the wrong person
  • getting into the shower with your socks still on
These are some or all things that I may have experienced, enjoy the below images while I go to bed.

 too tired to put pants on is also a telling sign

*you would not believe how many photos of sleeping babies, kittens or puppy's there are on google, you should thank me for sparing you.

Festivals forever

I am currently mourning the summer festivals. I did quiet well this year and attended Sea Sessions in Bundoran, which was wet, Oxegen for the day and saw Beyonce who was preggers and we didnt know, Castlepalooza and of course my favorite Electric Picnic. I cant think of one highlight, but sitting inside listening to the rain this evening does make me wish i was in a field with glowsticks, running to a tent to see a band. 
All in all Irish summers are just fine by me so quit you're whining and get you 2012 tickets!
here are some of my fave outfits all stolen from facebook pics..

..until 2012

for next year i hope we have more feathers and turbans, as modeled here by my friend Aisling
 i predict we'll be sporting the turban by next year (fingers crossed)
