November Favourites

Saturday, November 14, 2015



Happy Saturday, everybody! Is it just me or is anybody else exhausted recently? The cold, miserable weather and dark nights have me swapping Saturday nights out in Belfast for a night in beside the fire watching Netflix.

I have had such a busy few weeks, that I've completely missed the opportunity to share an 'October Favourites' post with you, so here is a late October/early November favourites post!

Cinemagic's 'A Christmas Star' World Premiere

Saturday, November 07, 2015

Just last year I had wrapped filming on my first feature film, 'A Christmas Star.' Myself and 40 other young trainees were chosen amongst hundreds of applicants to spend a number of weeks working on production and we were each divided into our desired departments. Three of the trainees, including myself, were working in the costume department. We worked long and hard hours and bared with the typical Irish weather, but above it all, it's an experience I will never forget and I am extremely grateful for the opportunities it has given me and the friendships I have created over this past year. Obviously I couldn't wait to reunite with my set family and see the finish product on the big screen, and the big night had finally arrived!

On November 4th 2015, over 2,400 guests arrived at the SSE Arena to watch 'A Christmas Star.' Cast, crew and VIP guests walked the red carpet and enjoyed the pre-show entertainment. It was nice to see the crew out of their waterproofs and in their best attire! I opted for a black gown with glitter star print (sticking with the theme!) that I purchased from ASOS and paired it with suede lace-up heels I ordered for Public Desire. 

McElhinney's Bridal Rooms - Exclusive Blogger's Event

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Less than two weeks ago, a huge box was delivered to my front door. Inside was a heart-shaped balloon and a beautiful invitation to the 'Exclusive Blogger's Event at McElhinney's Bridal Rooms.' I couldn't contain my excitement - my first real exclusive blogger's event! This would be the perfect opportunity to network, meet like-minded people and check out the re-opening of the bridal rooms!

Anyone who knows me will know I am obsessed with weddings, dresses in particular! I'm guilty of spending hours upon hours pinning wedding inspiration to my Pinterest board and watching endless repeats of 'Say Yes to the Dress' or 'I Found the Gown.' This event sounded like a magical fairytale!

I arrived at the 'Villa Rose Hotel' in Ballybofey where I was greeted with many delicious gifts, including a box of chocolates, champagne and lots of beauty related treats! My complementary treatments awaited, including an up-do and a session in the thermal suite spa (but we'll get to that later!) I chose a simple side-braid and loose waves, which complemented my 'First & I' outfit perfectly.
