ALOHA mezzamies! I know, I know, its been 2 weeks, I’m baaaaad. I was in agony waiting for my memory stick to get here, but I guess even bloggers need a bit of a holiday sometimes too! I’m back today with my May favourites video to ease me back into youtube world! Much love and see you in my next one T.x
Aloha mezzamies! Its been a few days! Hello, I’m back, I miss you.
I’ve been back home a few days since term ended, but I’ve been hit with some big news, and I’ve really just been enjoying being home, surrounded by my family & closest friends. Also Cathal borrowed my camera’s memory card that I use to film(its a special one) so I wont be making videos this week In the mean time I thought I’d show you some recent Romwe.com pick’s of mine!
Ive had the same one pair of Ray-Ban wayfarers for the last few years, so I lovvvve my new selection on summer staple glasses. The middle pair are my favourite! The suspender clip leggings are so badass, and super good quality. The cotton is REALLY thick and the chunky waistband makes them feel a bit more substantial than regular leggings. I can’t wait to pair this with an oversized plain white tee! Also I just picked up 3 new pieces in Romwe’s flash accessories sale, valid for the next 12 hours! You better get going, you can check that out hereee. T.x
Aloha mezzamies! I put together a few outfits based on one of my favourite trends- sports lux/ varsity. I spent an age on premiere pro colour correcting this bad boy, so hope you like the better quality (watch in HD or on youtube)! Which is your favourite outfit of mine? T.x
Aloha Mezzamies! I could fill you guys with a million reasons why I’ve been completely MIA for the last week, but it all really comes down to one! My last week of Uni has completely taken over, and I’ve missed you guys so much! I thought I’d share a few instagram photos with you guys to show you what Ive been up to. 1. My favourite relaxing thing to do is go to the cinema late at night, and with all the work I’ve been doing I’ve managed to swing two trips this week! Myself, Cathal and some friends really enjoyed’A Place beyond the Pines’, and I got my action fix watching ‘Olympus Has Fallen’. Heres my datenight outfit featuring the fluffy knit from my previous post. 2. For the final 3 weeks of my 1st year in Fashion, Design & Textile Art course, we were able to have full control and create our own project. I was feeling very inspired by CMKY colours used in newspaper printing and texture, so I really just went with the flow and found it unbelievably enjoyable to do something I really wanted to explore and work organically without to much planning. I made a little series, and hung it up a day earlier then I was aiming for, late thursday night. I combined elements from my print workshop & my embroidery workshop to create these little pieces. There was 2000 metres of thread used altogether! 3. I also got the chance to finally try out some fabulous grub from ‘Made in Belfast’, a quirky little restaurant on Talbot street just next to my Uni, with my uncle & aunt. The menu was incredible, and if you order before 6pm you get 2 courses for £13! The quality/taste of the food was incredible as well as the atmosphere, all very shabby-chic & mad-hatter’s tea party feeling (Theres another branch near city hall, more info here)! I’d highly recommend it, it’s my new favourite food spot in Belfast!

Aloha Mezzamies! How crude is my hair in that first shot. I know I denied myself for a while, and was well over-due a cut but I had no idea my hair looked that bad! I don’t know about you, but despite how much I may spend on makeup or clothes in the year, I hardly EVER do pamper-y things like ‘getting the nails did’ or as you can see, keeping my hair styled nicely at the salon regularly. I woke up today needing a treat (and the £10 voucher I had may have been an incentive I admit) and couldn’t bare looking at my drab locks any longer!
I trotted down to Toni & Guy on the Lisburn Road (Belfast) after the gym and got booked in with their head stylist (not a choice of mine, but I’d always prefer a more experienced hairdresser anyway)! I felt like it was talent wasted as I usually just get a blunt cut, but I showed her a sweepy side fringe I’d seen on Eva Longoria and I let her work her magic! I got 1.5 inches taken off just to get rid of split ends I was developing, the front area of my hair in and around my fringe thinned out massively as I hate it hanging in my face (little forehead #problems ) and got my hair blowdried straight. It all looks a bit flat and lifeless here, so I curled it for more texture, but I think when I wash and style myself, I’m going to really love it! Also I get asked if I wear extensions a lot, I don’t, we all natural up in hair. Excuse the pun, couldn’t help myself.. T.x
Aloha Mezzamies! As promised, here are some of my top buys from one of my favourite online stores Romwe.com! I’m noticing a pattern lately, I seem to have gone all serious and monochromatic wardrobe wise. I’m 21 this year, I think its getting to me..T.x
