Crops and Colours….two words that summarize 2013 summer trends. Yup, crop tops are easier said than done so switch the shpuds for a salad if you attempt to wear one! Neon colours are hitting shops everywhere, they’re unavoidable. So if you can’t beat them…. Pennys are doing a neon blazer that’s a twin to last year’s Zara 2012 collection!!
As well as having Billy Donnegan and the Radio Kerry crew there on the day, there was also a host of local suppliers lending their expertise and a bridal fashion show, showcasing all the latest trends.

Body Butter is an essential during the cold winter months and now, so is butter LONDON.

THE American formation of many words has always been different. Some claim it was to do with putting their own stamp on a language which was a reminder of their colonial past, others that it was spelt phonetically. As with most things beginning with the letter C in the American language, the spelling has been konverted to begin with a K. So who do we have to thank for this? The next best thing America have to a royal family, The Kardashians. more »
