Say hello to my newest investment piece, this leopard print leather biker jacket from Asos.It has a gorgeous horse-hair effect that really makes it stand out. I'm in love! It's was a bit pricey at €200, but you have to treat yourself sometimes though! Its an investment, and I can see it being a stand-out piece in my wardrobe for years to come. What are your stand out pieces from your wardrobe?, I'd love to know!

For those of you in Galway City tomorrow, get yourselves down to the Spanish Arch for some pampering fun, courtesy of Diet Coke! Presenter Lottie Ryan and Diet Coke's pamper pod crew are coming to Galway in search of some of its most stylish people to snap! Lottie is currently on the hunt for Irelands most stylish person, and it could be you! The chosen pictures will be competing against more from around the country, to be crowned Ireland's Street Style Star! So be sure to get your hippest threads on, pop down and say hi to her! I had the pleasure of meeting Lottie at the U Magazine Highstreet Style Awards two weeks ago and was interviewed by her, and she was an absolute delight to chat to, so I will definitely be going for a look!
Now, if the prospect of getting your picture taken in the hopes of being crowned Irelands Most Stylish doesn't tickle your fancy, then the Pamper Pods surely will! Along with having chilled Diet Coke on offer, there will be false eyelashes available and, wait for it, glitter tattoos!! What more could a girl want eh?!
I'ts on at approximately 1pm at the Spanish Arch, check out the Diet Coke Facebook page for more details:
Hope to see some of you Galway fashionistas there!

Here is a little post on some presenting work I did recently, at the Feline Fatale Fashion Show that took place in the Galway Bay Hotel, and showcased the best that Galway's independent shops and designers.
All the proceeds went to the Galway Cat Rescue, a very deserving charity. I was delighted to be given the MCing position, along with friend and fellow blogger Byron Yeates. Having only ever been a model at fashion shows, making the move to MCing was a daunting task, but one I was determined to undertake! Thankfully it went really well, it was little frightening at times, but overall a wonderful experience, and something I would do again in a heartbeat. The show was a spectacular success, with huge amounts of funding raised for the GCR team. Here are some shots of the night for you all!

A few snaps of life lately, though the eyes of my trusty htc...

3. Polaroid shots for Irish agencies, as well as Leni's Models in London, I am now signed to Assets Models Agency in Dublin, woo-hoo!
4. Some recent nail experimenting. I present to you: the odd one out! If only I had my hands on a black sharpie, I wanted to do a little doodle on the white one. Maybe a smiley face, or an upside down cross... ooooooh intense!
5. Snakeskin boots in New Look. Give meh.

Some photos from the first ever White Elephant BarBoot Sale, an event myself and Harlow&Harvey designer Sarah organised, which took place last Sunday. Held by The Kings Head pub in Galway's city centre, the White Elephant Sale (as they used to be called back in the day) hosted a wonderful mishmash of crafters, vintage and pre-loved clothing sellers flogging their wares, and for a very good price mind you! Feeling that it was about time I downsized my overflowing wardrobe, I managed to shift a heap of clothes, shoes and accessories to our bargain-hungry visitors. We were delighted to have amongst our sellers the wonderful Sinead of Cotton Face Vintage and fellow blogger Dani of Madam Snapper. We also had a visit from the lovely Lia of Rags & Retrospect, and not to mention the talented Saibh Egan, who popped in specially to take all of these gorgeous photos, thanks Saibh!
The day was a huge success and we hope to begin planning another one soon, feel free to like our facebook page here to keep updated, and if you would like to participate in our next one, PLEASE dont hesitate to let us know, the more the merrier!
