Birthday celebrations and Blog milstones

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 β€œBigBrowsMessyHair’’ 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. πŸ˜‰

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.
