2013 - A Year in Review

IMG_4612
New Years Eve 2012/2013
As we count down the hours to bring 2013 to a close, I can't help but reminisce over the roller coaster year that it has been.
Yes there were many lows but for every one there was a tremendous high. 
I enter 2014 with a huge sense of achievement... This year I have fulfilled dreams that I could have only imagined. 
I am the RSVP/Oasis Style Blogger of the year thanks to all of you who voted for me. 
I won the "Young Entrepreneur" award through the Business Launchpad program and have incredible plans to develop 'The Sequin Cinderella' in the coming year.
I have had the opportunity to work with some of the biggest fashion brands in the world such as Louis Vuitton, Oasis, River Island, Guess, So?… to name but a few and have had amazing press features nationwide.
I went back to college, finally setting wheels in motion to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a fashion designer and most importantly of all, I have incredible feedback from you, my readers. You make this journey worthwhile and if I have inspired at least one of you to wear something daring, step out of your comfort zone and follow your dreams then I am one happy lady.
I have put together a little collection of some of my favourite moments (and outfits) from the past year and I hope you enjoyed them almost as much as I did!
Thank you so much to everyone who has made "The Sequin Cinderella" a success, you know who you are and for that I am eternally grateful.
I hope 2014 brings you everything that your heart desires and if your dreams don't come to you then grab your best outfit, put your game face on, get out there & fight for them!
Love to you all!

Christmas Day 2013

IMG_0805

Merry Christmas Everyone!!
I hope all of my readers have a fabulous day and that Santa got you everything you wanted and more! 
I have had a lovely day so far and was absolutely spoilt rotten by my family and my boyfriend. 
As well as some beautiful clothes, jewellery and handbags, my brother surprised me with two little pet mice which I have called Dolce & Gabbana!
Saying as it is my last chance until next year I decided to wear my Christmas jumper which I got in New Look! It suited me down to the ground with lots of sequins and Sparkles!
Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! To my readers all over the world, whether you are in Australia and Christmas is already over or in the states where it is just beginning!
Love to you all!
Nicola, Dolce & Gabbana x

Celebration of the "Selfie" with Pair Mobile

Image

In celebration of the word "selfie" making it into the dictionary and the worlds obsession with those mirror poses, Pair Mobile (pairmobile.ie) sent me a fab selection of phone covers from their store!
As a fashion blogger, I not only love a good "selfie" but also need them when you just don't have a photographer at hand to capture a look or a style.
I am also a bit of a "matchy-matchy" girl and tend to change my phone covers to go with my outfit so the variety of colours these covers came in was perfect for anyone just like me.
Regardless of your phone brand or model, Pair Mobile will have something to suit, so do check out their website if you are looking for a fun and stylish way to protect your handset!

Its very easy to take ourselves a bit too seriously at times so with this post I wanted to show the fun side of "selfies" - Beware - Duck Pouts shall follow!
