Happy New Year !! 2018

Happy new year!
Hey guys so first of all I hope everyone is starting the new year off with a fresh head because I am definitely not 😂 I just wanted to say a big massive cringey THANK YOU to every single person who has supported my blog. I know everyone and their mother is blogging these days but as your basic 21 year old college student I was actually blown away by how supportive everyone was towards me.
Every single direct message and comment genuinely means the world to me because as much as I love doing this, it’s very fucking scary (sorry mam for cursing) This has been one of the scariest things I’ve ever made myself do because behind it all I’m not that outgoing and all those likes and messages give me the drive to keep going and reassure me what I’m doing is not completely pointless.
To sum it all up really, thanks to every single person for their messages, (even the lads who don’t care about fashion, thanks for liking everything all the same 😂👌) if it has taught me anything definitely just go for your goals. It’s terrifying but you only have one life and who cares what other people think? As long as your family and besties support you and know when to tell you you’re acting the eejit, that’s all that matters in the grand scheme of things!
So now that I’m all done being emotional I’m gonna check myself into the gym for the next month like every other gobshite after December😂
To finish off with a great quote: “Don’t be afraid to shine, the sun doesn’t give a shit if it blinds you”
(Again, very sorry Mam for cursing)

Waterford Vs. Web

Hey everyone! So some of you may already know I had been thinking of doing this post for a while. I have decided to showcase some Christmas party outfits available in shops in Waterford City from Penneys, Topshop, River Island and more! However, I know it can be an awful effort to drag yourself out of the house to go shopping so I have also compared them to similar outfits online, which gives you the option to shop from the comfort of your own bed xx

LOOK 1 – PENNEYS

I am obsessed with co-ords and suits (check my full blog post on co-ords) as ye all know, so I instantly went for this fab navy velvet suit in Penneys. I thought this cropped pyjama top was cute and looked fab under the blazer for a more “going-out” vibe.

Blazer- €23

Trousers- €16
