Golden Globe awards Best Dressed

The 12th of January marked the beginning of the 2014 award ceremonies, the 71st Golden Globe Awards! Personally I love to watch the highlights, the funny bits that are said and done, but of course the best part for most of us is looking over the fabulous gowns that celebrities never fail to amaze us with, sometimes not for the right reasons! However these are my top 4 favourite from the 2014 Golden Globes. Cream, Silver, Black and red are classic colours that I find never fail when it comes to evening wear. Each dress is just so elegant and sophisticated! Love them all, but in order...

#1 Margot Robbie, her Cream Gucc gown is definitely my favourite. The outfit is just perfect right down to the green louboutons matching the beading on the bodice. The slit and plunging neckline are also perfect and overall I just love it! 

#2 Kate Beckinsale, her silver strapless Zuhair Murad gown is such a flattering shape and is very glitzy and glamorous. 

#Emma Roberts You really cant go wrong with a LBD  and this Lanvin number is a perfect example! Emma looks elegant and classy but still not and if she's dressed too old for her age. The black dress also means there's opportunity for statement jewellery, in this case a bold turquoise.

#4 Amy Adams, her V neck-plunging Valentino gown is fourth on my list. I love red dressed in general and  I actually really like the two shades of red coming together here, however the lighter one is a bit too similar to the carpet itself so she kind of tends to blend into it! Regardless I really like this dress on her and I think she looks gorgeous. 

Jennifer Lawrence's oh so controversial number is something I'm personally not a fan of, it was by no means the worst but I did have higher expectations for her! The response pictures were pretty hilarious, guys tying bedsheets around themselves with belts, it looked scarily similar... but she is my Idol and because of  that she gets a free pass! Her hair and make-up was fierce and if it weren't for the second band I would have really liked it,  I think she pulls it off but it wouldn't be my favourite dress.

 Emma Watson was also dressed in  rather controversial attire, some love it some hate it, I think its pretty cool, it looks like a dress from the front, and is then is  backless revealing black fitted trousers. Its a very different look and that's what I like about it, but on the other hand I think I still prefer the classic evening dress for something like the Golden Globes! 

Taylor Swift's dress was described as red much like her signature look but I don't know what people are on about because it is pinky and I'm personally not crazy about it! In the past she has looked so amazing that this is just a bit of a let down. 
Although all three of there lovely ladies looked gorgeous I think I'd make a few changes! What do you guys think? Leave me a comment to let me know!

Topshop Wishlist

So I've basically put together what I would buy if I were to walk into Topshop tomorrow with a crazy amount of money. I absolutely love everything from Topshop but sadly its one of the most expensive high-street shops! *sigh so during the winter sales I picked up a few bits which I'm completely in love with and will hopefully post a little later. Right now though I really like the whole tartan trend, especially green which is a bit different from the classic red. I really want a pair of Chelsea boots now but I have a pair of biker boots that I bought  before Christmas from River Island that I wear with practically everything, and I'm not sure if there's much point coming into spring/summer, then again it's always cold in Ireland so it wouldn't make much of a difference! Topshop mom jeans are basically a copy of vintage levi's and they are amazing, need a pair of these in my life! Classic black tee's and a kimono are definitely on my list, missguided were having a huge sale on kimonos a while back but by the time I got around to it, it was over, always happens! Finally Topshop lipstick in Damned, and Nail-varnish in Blue Jeans. Everything from the list above is from Topshop and is new in stock so there's plenty of time to get them. Happy Shopping! x

As so it begins...

So its the start of 2014, a new beginning whatever way you look at it, and I've finally gotten around to starting the blog that I've always talked about starting but had never quite followed through with.
                             People have been talking a lot lately of the old cliché "new year, new me" of course once its January there is no magical miraculous change that transforms you as a person! Of course nothing will change, unless you decide that it will. It is a chance for you to make a change big or small, something that you decide to make happen, because ultimately everything is the same unless you make it different. A new start, a new year. So for me this is the first step, the first change and new years resolution along with many more that probably wont happen! (then again when do they ever?) So here it is, first blog post with hopefully many more to come x
