It is crazy that it has been a whole year since Pippa stole the “Best Fashion Blog” award from me… I kid of course, I am one of her biggest fans. I love attending the Irish Beauty Blog Awards, it is always a really lively night and a great excuse to get meet up with some of my favourite bloggers. The venue is Lillie’s Bordello in town and the night kicks off early enough with doors opening at 7pm. The room is packed with guys and girls from all over the country who spend their free time creating content, learning photography and self promoting, so overall it is quite inspiring. The vibe of the night is really celebratory, we all there to cheer on our peers, catch up with old friends and meet new ones.
This year I did make it onto four different long lists (Best Fashion, Best Beauty, Best Lifestyle & Best Design), but unfortunately did not make it to the short lists. I was really happy to go and cheer for my friend Rachel who was shortlisted for “Best Newcomer” for her blog The Insider Daily (check her out she is fab!)
The ladies and gents attending the IBBAs do not mess around when it comes to dressing up so I did spend a little time mulling over what look to go for. In the end I opted for a fabulous pair of wide leg trousers and a sweet crop top (all details and links below). The weather on the day was a little grey so I would have been uncomfortable in a skirt, but I felt really fabulous in my wide leg trousers.
WHAT I WORE:
Abercrombie white lace crop top // similar here
Missguided red wide leg trousers // shop here
ASOS spot flap bag // similar here
New Look Biker Jacket // similar here
Zara snake print heels // similar here (although you cannot see them!)
Super envious of Doireann’s look but that metallic bomber jacket is AMAZING!
I had a fabulous night with the gorgeous Doireann from Blog Beauties and Rachel from The Insider Daily. Unfortunately Rachel did not win best newcomer, but it is such an achievement to be placed top 5 out of so many amazing bloggers.
Congratulations to all the winners from the night! I love attending the Beauty Blog Awards and I know I won’t miss next years either! Did you attend the awards this year? Let me know! For more information on the awards click here!
Until next time,
