ooh I have so many! Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind, Ashley Olsen, Jessica Alba, and other bloggers like Alix from Cherry blossom girl and Liz from Late Afternoon.

What is your favourite place to shop?
I love shopping online at ASOS, but for in store shopping I love Avoca which is an irish brand that do lovely kitcsh clothes, accessoires, candles, homeware, food everything...

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Im loving the grungy trend for this autumn..khaki green and grey, biker boots, leather, smoky eyes..the whole works!

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Im sure this will cause a stir but I really dont like clogs..which were such a big trend this year.

Why did you start your blog?
I finished my degree in Fashion Managment and missed a creative outlet to talk about fashion.

Colourful, quirky and girlie.

An over sized khaki coat.

My Mui Mui green prescription glasses.

What is the least expensive thing you have bought?
Lots of things from Primark!! :)

What is one thing that you regret buying?
A few dresses i bought from the H&M garden collection that I've never worn cause they just dont suit me. I got caught up in the hype of it all.

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Vivienne Westwood fellow red head her style is amazing and I'd love to just watch her work up close.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
I've taken lots of holidays with my family in Menorca and I love the island and know it so well now it feels like a a second home.
