London Fashion Week - Day 1 - Photos and Updates



 So I'm here in London for Fashion Week!!! This is going to have to be  a rather quick post today, as I have to run out the door again! Internet was being funny last night so I wasn't able to upload anything unfortunately, but here is a quick update of the situation for you all :) Myself and Byron landed safe and sound yesterday, and although we missed most of the first day, we decided to pop into Somerset House anyway to see what was going on! We met up with loads of the Irish bloggers, Tar Mar, Leanne Woodfull, Conor Clinch, Sarah & Jennie from WWIT, and a few others. It was so great to meet up with some familiar faces, some of the girls I had never even met properly before so it was really great to have coffees and chats. I had an absolute blast hanging out with them, and as per usual with LFW, there was some serious style (and celeb) spotting to be done! (Above Photo: Here's a quick snap of  some of the group of bloggers from Ireland, from left to right: Sarah & Jennie from WWIT, Myself, Byron Yeates, and Tar Mar!) Here's a quick snap of my Blogger pass for LFW, its so funny to see my details printed out on a card like that, I feel so official! It was a bit of a proud blogger moment I think!

   
 I also had the pleasure of meeting one of my idols, Laura Whitmore! Yes, as lame as it sounds, she is someone I really look up to, particularly from a career perspective, I just think she does her job so well, and I would aspire to someday be in the position she is! She was so nice and friendly though, and so easy to chat to. Its funny, as I have had the opportunity of meeting quite a few big names through my work with Fashion Week before, but she is the only person that I've met that made me a a bit jittery and nervous. (So lame, I know!) Check out the head on me, FanGirl or what like? I'm such a dork :D

Thats all my news for now really, as I arrived so late yesterday (and was horribly sleep deprived) I decided to take it easy on the videos and all that, but todays a new day! Im heading in now to do some street style spotting and catch some shows hopefully, and I'll be videoing my adventures so I'll see who I can grab for a chat! The House of Holland show is also later this evening, and I'm super excited about that! I'll try to update as much as I can via my Twitter and Instagram, so if you're not following me on those yet, get involved! I better go now, so wish me luck!

Wanderlust






I have returned from my week-long adventure in Barcelona, cavorting about the place, making new friends, experiencing new places, dancing until my feet hurt, and then dancing some more!
I missed Barca so much, so overjoyed at the chance to go back. Primavera was nothing short of amazing, exceeded all expectations! The location was beautiful, down by the water, and the bands were unbelievable. My favourite would have to be Fleet Foxes and Warpaint, seeing them live was just trippy...


Highlights included
  • Meeting Fleet Foxes,(eeeeeeeeee!!)
  • seeing the audience storm the stage for Odd Future (they full-on trashed the stage, was like something out of Woodstock:D)
  • Being in the city the night Barca won the Champions league and being crammed in a metro carriage with a hundred screaming fans celebrating (insane.)
  • Having my picture taken on the final day of the festival by lots of photographers, including 3 fashion blogs, 2 spanish websites, Grazia france and Elle Finland. It all happened so fast and was very surreal indeed, but I just rolled with it :) im guessing what I was wearing just seemed to stand out with a good few style-spotters that day, crazy!
So many pictures and fun things to share with you guys, photos, new purchases, fabulous vintage finds and one or two outfit posts.


Just sorting through all the pics now (some need developing as I shoot alot with film) and unpacking so bear with me :)

but there's your sneaky peak :)

Peace,
