Yesterday, we spent a fab day barbecuing and sharing a few (too many) drinks on a yacht for a friend’s 30th birthday. It was so nice to get out of the dead heat (45 degrees!) and take in some sea air.
It’s days like these that we will be dreaming about when we move back home to Ireland!
As the temperature continues to soar, it is increasingly hard to find things to do while avoiding the 45 degree heat! There are only so many malls you can visit and days you can spend hiding in your home with the air con turned up before cabin fever sets in!
So, we decided to get out and about and treat ourselves to a spot of lunch and pool access in The H Hotel on Saturday afternoon. There we spent the day indulging in barbequed steak and lobster and alternating between the pool and shade to keep cool.
Here are a few pics from the day.

We had such a relaxing day, eating, swimming and catching up on celeb gossip! We promised ourselves we would do it again soon.
TOWIE’s Lauren Pope has been very on trend with her Spring/Summer wardrobe. Teaming midi skirts, crisp whites, soft pastels and canary yellow with statement necklaces and bags, she has managed to create classic fresh Summer looks . I can’t wait to put my own spin on some of these looks this Summer!

Recently myself and a few friends decided to organise a hen party for a friend of ours who is getting married this July. I was so excited at the thought of picking a theme, decorating and creating a menu so I couldn’t wait to get started!
We decided to to hold a drinks and canapes party and then go to a champagne brunch the following day in Al Qasr hotel in the Madinat, Jumeirah.
We didn’t have much time so first thing first, I went online and had a good look at pinterest to get some inspiration for the colour scheme for our drinks party. We settled on yellow, cream and gold.
We took a trip to the Party Centre in Al Garhoud to pick up a few decorations and balloons. This place is amazing with decorations for every occasion so we had a ball running around choosing props and decorations.
We picked up some yellow puff balls, cream and gold bunting, vanilla cream helium balloons, gold table confetti, and engagement ring charms.
We decided to keep the food simple, so we prepared a selection of canapes and finger food. We made Bruschetta, baked baby potatoes with creme fraiche and chives, smoked salmon and brown bread, hummous, brie and crackers, mixed salad, and a caprese salad. They all went down a treat!
The night was a great success and I am already looking for the next event to organise! I thoroughly enjoyed browsing themes, shopping for props and preparing the canapes. I hope our friend enjoyed it as much as we did!
May 5th saw actors, designers and musicians alike don their ball gowns and tuxedos for the annual Met Gala ball held in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Insitute. The event’s chair, Vogue Editor Anna Wintour announced the theme of “White Tie and decorations” with the men being asked to wear white ties and tails and women requested to wear their most glamorous gowns.
There were so many gorgeous gowns that it was extremely difficult to narrow down but here are a few of my favourite red carpet looks!
