2015 - It's your year x

Don't let the panic of a new year get to you . Every year at this time I feel a pressure - not sure if it's something I bring on myself or comes from other people but I feel a pressure. 

This year I have decided to make the dreaded resolutions but not for anyone else - just for me . As lame as making changes just because it's a new year is this year I'm not gonna see it that way . I'm gonna take it as an opportunity to actually do some of the things I want !! Nothing earth moving but If I succeed I will be very proud of myself. So heading into the new year I'm finally going to  get that second language down - learning Spanish has been on my list for longer than I can remember !! Get back into bikram yoga at least twice a week and attempt a half marathon in June !!! All these as well as getting more into my writing and oh maybe figuring out a career path :) not sure if that one will ever happen !! Lol but ill try 

I hope you all take this new year as an opportunity to do something for yourself and achieve a goal you have wanted to for a long time

Topshop- Please Don’t forget Brisbane!

If there was any store I have missed the most since I moved from Ireland it would have to be Topshop- I definitely scarified eating in university on many occasions to buy their latest looks.

So you can understand my excitement when they announced they were coming to Oz. They opened their flagship store in Melbourne on the 8th December and Sydney is set to follow in August 2012. There have been rumours that they might be looking at our lovely City of Brisbane too. The new Wintergarden in Queen Street mall is the rumoured site and so I hope there is truth in this.

As much as I love the little boutique stores that sprinkle the corners of Brisbane – We need a Topshop! No other store embraces on trend looks like they do.

The Dress below is one of my favourite TOPSHOP pieces. It can be worn in so many ways – At the office with black tights or bare those legs for a sexier look.

The looks below are my favourite from the fall 2012 collection. Design manager Emma Farrow commented that "The concept was trying to reinvent the uniform with a good mix of masculine and feminine," The pieces are amazing and without a doubt achieve their purposed vision
I will be definitely investing in some pieces .

FairyTale Trend

How exciting is the new Fairytale trend that is emerging . With so many countries in financial distress it seems only fitting that we escape in to another world and it seems the Designers could not agree more - We are seeing this trend paraded on the runways at Viktor & Rolf, Louis Vuitton, and Alexander McQueen

The look below from Louis Vuitton is amazing – It does help that it is being showcased by Kate Moss. However for this trend my heart belongs to Oscar de la Renta !!! These are some of my favorite images from the spring 2012 collection and there is only word to sum them up – Breathtaking .
He has managed to encapsulate every emotion that we , from such a young age, have attached to our fantasies of a fairy tale world

So please fairytale creatures come and get me , I want to be a princess

Today’s Inspiration

I am so in love with the Chanel Dress below. It brings images of ice queens and butterflies to my mind- the perfect distraction in my working day.

This was the first piece shown in Versailles yesterday, where Karl Lagerfeld showed his latest collection for the fashion house - pre-spring/summer 2013. It was modeled by Cara Delevingne. The whole collection was beautiful and seems to be inspired by century of Enlightenment- very Marie Antoinette esque

Love love love Chanel
