Out of Africa..

My wishlist for this week is tribal inspired. When I was in London, H&M had launched their Fashion Against AIDS line which is all African prints. I had no money left by the time I saw it so couldn't pick up any pieces unfortunately. I love the black fringe top!

Similarly, ASOS have an ASOS Africa line which has very loud prints with lots of bright colours. This playsuit is probably the most toned down item. River Island and Topshop also do tropical/tribal prints.

I reckon this trend will flood the festivals so will be aiming to pick up a few things in the next week or so! I'm planning a trip to the big smoke soon so hopefully Dublin will have a better selection than Cork!

I'm back from Spain! I had the best few days lying in the sun, reading, and drinking lots of wine and cocktails. It was not without drama though as on our 3rd day our apartment was broken into! We came home from dinner one night to see doors bust open and our ipods and my camera gone. It's really upsetting but it could have been a lot worse. Our money and passports were locked in a safe so were left untouched. My GHD was left alone, clearly it was men who broke in as it was probably the most expensive item there!

Apart from that it was a brilliant fun few days with gorgeous food, drinks and a French man! I'm going to marry one for the accent alone! Plus the fact they are just so much more romantic than any Irish lad!

Off to see SATC! Have a good weekend!

Summer Holidays

I'm off to Spain tomorrow for the week so no blogging I'm afraid! Hope the gorgeous weather lasts here and have a good week!

SJP & Chris Noth by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue June '08

Just a warning that my posts for the next while may be related to Sex and the City. Normal blogging will resume when obsession subsides.

This is one of favourite Vogue shoots, regardless of the fact that it's "Carrie and Big". I think that if it were two unknown models, I'd feel the same.

Wishlist of the Week...

I've decided to try and have a routine when it comes to posting so on Mondays I will do a wishlist post.

I'm going to London on Thursday and top of my list is a pair of high-waisted shorts. I love this pair from River Island. Also, I would sell my granny for a Mulberry Alexa bag. I'm sure she wouldn't mind!

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

I've only got one exam left! Yay! It's not on until the end of next week so I'm taking the weekend off and going out tomorrow night!! I can't wait to just dance! Must find something to wear too! Loving this dress from French Connection, it's a really nice summer colour!

I'm getting my hair done in the morning and I'm seriously thinking about changing it completely. The last time I had this feeling I went from long blonde hair to extremely short brown hair. Its kinda of shoulder length now and a dark brown so hmmm...decisions decisions! I love that "blondette" look at the moment (just like Audrina, I've got hair envy!) so might ask for something similar to that with the intention of going back to blonde somewhere in the future!

Also check out Kylie Minogue's new song All The Lovers. I've listened to it about 5 times already. It's a great summer track!

Style Crush...

I think Coleen Rooney looks fabulous here. The jeans are really flattering for her figure and I love the cream top and jacket combo. I saw her once when I was in Old Trafford and boy is she tiny! And really pretty too!
Heels, jeans, and a blazer gets my vote every time! I live in blazers! When I'm having an "I've got no clothes day" I always fall back on a dress and blazer. You can't go wrong! Just bought a really nicely cut black one actually in H&M for only €19.95!

Manhattan's Elite

I'm supposed to be studying for my exam tomorrow but have spent the morning catching up on tv shows including Gossip Girl. I discovered Gossip Girl much later than everyone else so I ended up watching Season 1 and 2 in a weekend. Now it's pretty much my favourite tv programme. I love all the characters (well except Jenny, brat!) and this season's storyline is better than the previous two and I can't wait to see how it explodes next week!

ITV 2 have posted a trailer for the season finale so if you don't want to see some major spoilers don't watch it! It's after the jump!

Victoria Beckham

The most glamorous celebrity in pictures.

I used to be obsessed with Victoria Beckham. She was always my favourite Spice Girl and when we were younger and dressing up as them I was always Posh. Once my dad met the Spice Girls in Heathrow and I passed out peacefully when he got me her autograph! (He still says to this day that he met Victoria before Becks did! Sad, I know!)

Over time I have begun to find her extremely irritating but you cannot argue that this woman's style has evolved into something spectacular. I am getting really bored though of the whole Birken bag so loved seeing her with this Louis Vuitton.
