August is a special month for me, not only is it my birthday but my blog also turned three this month. I turned twenty nine this year and I have to admit to loving the idea of turning thirty next year. Celebrating a birthday is a great excuse for a fresh beginning and like last year and the year before and so on, I always make a list of goals I hope to achieve for that year.
I never thought when I started my blog that I would still be blogging three years on. Blogging for me is an enjoyable hobby. I love the escapism it allows me. I love that it can connect me with people and friends all over the world and I love that my blog gives me a creative outlet. It grows with me and my ever changing style. This month my blog has been nominated for two blog awards. The Beauty Blog awards where I am nominated for Best Beauty blog and Best Lifestyle blog. If you enjoy my content it would mean the world to me if you could vote “BigBrowsMessyHair’’ in those two categories Here.
My blog has also been nominated in The Blog awards Ireland 2018 for also the Best Beauty and Best Lifestyle blog. This award is marked by a panel of Judges so no need to vote in this one, just keep your fingers crossed for me and no harm in lighting a candle or two. 😉
For my birthday this year I wanted to kick start it with a bang and what better way to do just that then with a statement birthday dress. I choose to wear this eye catching yellow number from Oh Hello Clothing I love that this dress can be worn two ways. Off your shoulders ( how I styled it) or worn on your shoulders. There is something about wearing the colour yellow that demands attention and gives out happy vibes. Instead of opting for a more obvious choice of a pair of nude sandals and a neutral bag, I decided to colour block!! I paired my favorite Kurt Geiger royal blue shoes with a royal blue suede handbag. I kept my jewelry then very simple wearing teardrop Newbridge earrings and my Pandora charm bracelet.
Which of course had a new birthday charm dangling from it.
I spent my birthday in the Woodlands house Hotel and spa in Adare. We spent the day relaxing in the Revas Spa enjoying their outdoor jacuzzi, sipping on prosecco and enjoyed a lovely meal that evening.
Thanks so much to anyone that sent me birthday wishes at the weekend, it really made my day feel special.
