You might have noticed that I hadn't updated this blog for a while. The reason behind this is that I have been quite the travel bee in the past couple of weeks. I first went to visit my sister in London before heading to Dublin for the biggest student event of the year : Trinity Ball. In case you haven't heard about Trinity Ball, not only is it the biggest private party in Ireland, but it is also the biggest private party in Europe! Imagine a festival, with a black tie dress code, set in one of the oldest and most beautiful university campuses of Ireland with an amazing line-up and five different stages: this what I am talking about. The headliners for this year's ball included The Streets, Katy B, Bell X1, Jessie J, Professor Green and Simian Mobile Disco to name just a few. Needless to say, I had a ball! I also found out that I really can't pout that night. Oh well...

As Kate Moss is walking down the catwalk, waving a cigarette, I can't help but thinking that this collection was smoking.
