On Saturday evening, I had the pleasure of attending the Miss Ireland 2014 competition at the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin.
As you may remember, I was a judge for the Miss Derry and Miss Tyrone competitions (seen HERE) in which we crowned Aisling Dougan Cleary as Miss Tyrone and Dearbhla Walsh as Miss Derry. We also selected Roisin McDevitt as our runner up and she later went on to get selected as Miss Fermanagh. I was delighted to have the opportunity to go along to the grand final and support our girls. It was a fantastic night and they really did us and their counties proud. Unfortunately they didn't place on the night but their beauty, grace and elegance shone through 'til the end.
The beautiful Miss Buck Whaleys - Jessica Hayes was the lucky winner to be crowned Miss Ireland 2014 and it was so exciting to see her embark on an incredible journey as a representative of her Country.
It was amazing to meet some fab Irish celebs on the night such as previous Miss Irelands, Radio Presenters, Models, TV presenters etc. so of course I had to sneak in a few selfies.
My outfit for the night was from Boudoir Boutique NI and consisted of a Vintage blue sequin dress with a lilac flower detail on the side. I matched it up with a Louis Vuitton "limelight" clutch handbag and diamante heels from River Island.
I also received an amazing spray tan for the event thanks to Vita Liberata and Lisa at Absolute Beauty on South William Street in Dublin. The colour was beautiful, so natural and even. I just loved it and would highly recommend Vita Liberata to any girl looking for a natural summer glow!
I would just like to say a huge congrats to Jessica Hayes - Miss Ireland 2014 - to our girls and to all of the finalists! Each girl was beautiful inside and out and I hope they don't give up! Keep trying to achieve your dreams! When one door closes, another door opens, just remember that!
