Now what?

Pretty sure I’m not alone in this but I am feeling a little adrift as to what I’m going to watch & discuss all day now that the 2012 London Olympics are over. I mean how am I going to bring the fact that I could’ve represented my country in gymnastics (child gymnast, fairly awesome, got too tall, & I may have discovered boys & a social life too!) into a normal conversation?

I suppose I could catch up on the laundry (yawn), or my filing (double yawn), and whatever has been building up on the digi-box (more than likely), and they don’t make me feel like a lazy wagon for not going to the gym 82 times a week!

But as someone pointed out on twitter last night, the Paralympics are still ahead. Huzzah!! All is not lost! So I’ll be here, on my couch, cheering team Ireland on, waving my wee tricolour….it’s gonna be awesome.

‘Til next time……

Outfit conundrums

I seem to be doing a few more of these than I thought I would, but I love clothes, so who cares!!??!!!

I had a night out this weekend for one of my closest friends birthdays, so obv there had to be a fantastic ensemble put together!

I had originally planned to wear one of the outfits consisting of red jeans / leather effect leggings & loose top. Top from h&m, red jeans from Oasis, leather look leggings from American Apparel, black heels from High Heels.ie & stripey wedges from River Island. But was convinced to get my legs out & buy a new dress by a friend. Yes, I’ve a rubber arm.

So the final outfit was this dress from Penneys (€19, and also bought in plain black. They’re little pink flamingos on the printed dress pictured) heels & bag also from Penneys (but a purchased three years ago so while not available exactly the same, they’ll have something similar), large bangle from Fran & Jane and earrings from Monsoon Accessorize.

Outfit was very comfy for a night out of dancing & silliness, covered any areas I would be conscious of, while still looking elegant & a little sexy, so a winner all round! And I know I’ll be able to take the dress into winter by just adding ballet flats & tights!

‘Til next time……
