PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS | BEST DRESSED

Hello Guys!

I absolutely love award ceremonies as they are the perfect opportunity for celebs to dress up in gorgeous outfits by the most amazing designers. This year was the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards and was held at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, California. The ceremony was hosted by Neil Patrick-Harris and included awards in catergories within; Programs, Acting, Supporting Performances, Choreography, Directing and Writing. 

The red carpet was no let down with some amazing dresses by a huge variety of designers. I thought I would share with you all some of my 'Best Dressed' from this years awards!

The red carpet saw the electric blue trend in full swing...

Tina Fey in Narciso Rodriguez

There was also various shades of purples creating a more girlie look...

Maria Menounos in Zac Posen
Melissa Raunch
Carrie Underwood in Romona Keveza
Thea Andrews
Mindy Kaling in Edition by Georges Chakra
Aubrey Anderson-Emmons

Many women opted for more neutral colours in pinks, nudes and off whites...

Ariel Winter in Lorena Sarbu
Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein Collection
Anna Gunn in Romona Keveza
Claire Danes in Armani Prive
Derek and Julianna Hough in Jenny Packham
Kerry Washington in Marchesa

There were also the stand out bright reds, greens and blacks...


Sofia Vegara in Vera Wang
Morena Baccarin in Fred Leighton Jewels
Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano
Sarah Hyland Carolina Herrera

And the men didn't disappoint either...


Kevin Spacey in Burberry
Kit Harrington
Neil Patrick Harris

To round off my best dressed sum up I thought I would save my 'best' until last... Kaley Cuoco! I thought she looked absolutely divine in her Vera Wang gown. The colour complimented her skin tone, her smokey eye colour matched and her jewels were subtle but effective. She teemed this amazing gown with Aldo heels, a Jimmy Choo clutch and Neil Lane jewelry.

Who was your best dressed? Which other awards ceremonies do you look forward to?

See you guys soon!

WHITBY | SCARBOROUGH


One sunny weekend in August, My boyfriend and I went to visit his Nana, who lives in Scarborough! I had only ever been to this area of Yorkshire once when I was very little so I couldn't remember any of our time there. I was very excited to visit a proper sea side town! It was even more beautiful than I imagined and there is so much to do.

We began our day in Scarborough by walking along the promenade and enjoying the weather. We then took the bus over to the Spa for a coffee and walked back through the town centre stopping to pop our heads into various shops. We also went for lunch at the highly recommended Mother Hubbard's for fish and chips. You can see what all the fuss is about here! To end the day we walked back to the car not forgetting to shot for a cheeky drink.


On the Sunday we decided to drive up to Whitby for another little day out. Again the weather was lovely so we were able to meander round the shops, taking in the little traditions and the Abbey. 




I couldn't help feeling like a tourist as I wandered through the quirky cobbled streets talking lots of pictures and not forgetting to stop to buy a little Whitby rock!




We stopped at the local Wetherspoons for an afternoon drink. I think it might be reasonably new and you can sit outside with a beautiful view over the harbour. They also sold Tango Apple on tap which I had never seen before and was very excited about!



As we went on a weekend there seemed to be lots happening with lots and people and an exciting atmosphere. There were cute fun fair rides, RNLI stands giving out fun freebies and an array of vintage cars to look at.


We had a wonderful weekend over on the beautiful east coast and  I can't wait to visit again soon. Rob's Nana made us feel so welcome and I could lay in her garden all day absorbing the scents from an array of trees and flowers! 





Has anyone else been over to visit the East coast? Do you have any recommendation? Thanks again for reading, See you soon!

I ♥ INSTAGRAM

For those of you who don't already know, I am a little obsessed with Instagram! When I first bought my iPhone in 2012 it was the first app I downloaded and I have been addicted ever since. It is the perfect tool to stalk Kendall and Kylie Jenner (we all do it!) or lust over everything Topshop. It is also the perfect place to discover new brands and I found my current obsession, Nasty Gal. My Instagram experience is now more complex than a choice of filters and some of my most used apps include Squaready, PicLab, PhotoStudio and Bezel. I thought I would share with you all, my favourite pictures from 2012. Enjoy!
