Irish Beauty Blog Awards | What I Wore

The Irish Beauty Blog awards took place last week in Lillie’s bordello and I was delighted to attend as a nominee. Last month I found out my blog was long listed for four awards: Best Content, Best Fashion, Best Beauty and Best Social Media. I could not believe that I had made my way onto the shortlist for Best Fashion blog, and was absolutely amazed to share a category with the likes of Pippa, the Style Gamblers and 4ngstyle to name a few.

Finding an outfit was a little stressful! I left it until the day before, of course, and all I knew was that really I wanted to wear my cage Zara shoes. Luckily I found a fabulous skater dress in Warehouse in black and white stripes which I felt really comfortable in.

As it was the Beauty Blog Awards I had to make sure my makeup looked good. I opted for a soft smokey eye and a nude lip. The products I used are:


SHOEFIE! I am obsessed with my Zara cage heels! I also tried out the Nip + Fab leg shimmer for the first time which I am really loving. A full review will be posted soon!


I was in such a rush to get to the awards that I totally forgot to take an outfit selfie. Conor took a pic of me when we got there but you can see how awkward I get when having my picture taken!!!!

I found SELFIE GIRL! I finally got to meet fellow blogger Jessika who is the author of Chaos wearing Lipgloss, who I regularly chat with online. That was one of the best parts of the evening, getting to meet people whos blogs I regularly read and chat with on Twitter and Instagram.    

Walking out of Lilies at the end of the night I could not resist running into Burger King for well deserved burger and chips.

I could not believe how much goodies were packed into our gift bag! I will be posting about all of these treats soon, but there was a huge amount of makeup and beauty products.

Goodnight! I documented my night on Snapchat (ginakiely) and this was the most satisfying picture!

I had a fabulous night at the Irish Beauty Blog Awards, it was really well organised and a great evening to chat with like minded ladies. Congratualtions to all of the nominees and of course the winners!
