Last Friday was the night of the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards in the Marker Hotel in Dublin. The awards have been running for a number of years but this was my first time attending as well as being a nominee for 'Best Style Newcomer of 2014'. It was really lovely as there was a number of my friends in the modelling world who were also nominated in various categories. It was a night full of beautiful fashion, style and fabulous food. Below is a run through of what I wore on the night and details of my makeup look.

I was on a shoot last month where I worked along side make up artist Ken Boylan. Ken is well known within the Irish beauty industry and has travelled widely as an international make-up artist. All the products on the shoot were by his own brand, Play make-up, which I was quite interested to know more about. Ken and his partner, who is a professor and lecturer in pharmaceutical science, went to Canada to tailor make the range down to the finest ingredient.

Last Wednesday the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards finally arrived. The night was held in the fabulous OXO Tower in Harvey Nichols at Tower Wharf, which showcased some beautiful views of London. I was really honoured to have been nominated for two Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, Best Fashion Blog and Best International Fashion Blog with the IFB. In both categories, the standard was extremely high with amazing bloggers such as Thunder and Threads, So Sue Me, The Beauty Dial, The Makeup Fairy, Fluff and Flipperies, Lulutrixabelle and Miss Drifted Snow White. When Style Me Curvy was announced as the winner for Best International Fashion Blog I really could not believe it! The word 'thrilled' would have to be an understatement and I don't think that I have stopped smiling since! :)

Exactly one year ago Models 1 created their Curve Campaign representing their curvy and plus size models. In the past year, there has been a number of fabulous new beauties who have joined the team. So it seemed fitting to do a bigger and better one this year which was directed by our booker Nicole Sinclair.

The fashion army from near and far flooded into the Somerset house on Friday eagerly anticipating the designers first looks on the catwalk. All you could hear was the constant clicks of cameras from world media with fashionistas instagramming fresh looks by the millisecond.

Travelling to different locations is something I'm used to with the nature of my job. Out of all of my trips, however, Cape Verde left a strong impression in various ways. To avoid repetition about some of the more cultural aspects of the area, you can check out the blog post of Cape Verde part 1 here. I was working there for a Dutch magazine called Big Is Beautiful, where we shot four different editorials. The final set of editorials came out last month so now I can show you them online. Yay! You can see some behind the scenes images, details and an insight into the numerous places we shot around one of the islands below.

The beauty tip I am about to talk about may seem obvious, but I never took it seriously until working with top Dutch makeup artist Ingrid Burger. We worked at the start of the year on a shoot in Cape Verde.

Last week my work brought me to the Germany. I flew into Düsseldorf airport to then take a two hour train journey up North to the city of Munster. It was my second trip the area, however this time I had the opportunity to stay for three days so I could see the area a bit better. It's currently known as the bicycle capital of Germany, which I can confirm because I was nearly knocked down three times by cyclists!haha. Overall it really is a beautiful, clean and extremely safe place.

This has been a really popular request over the last few weeks. So I thought I would concentrate on some of my most used products from the past two months.

This week Vichy has launched their new sun protect compact which aims to act like a sun screen providing up to an SPF of 30. It spreads like a fluid, mattifies and gives a finish just like a foundation. Vichy has also ensured that your skin will also be protected from harmful UVB and UVA rays as well as proving suitable for all skin types which is an added bonus!

Lately it feels bizarrely like Christmas in March. My winter clothes are dying to be packed away in the hope for sun this spring, if it ever arrives that is! So today I'm all about layering. It's the only way I seem to be able to strike a happy medium between fashion and keeping warm. I opted for a trusted thermal vest from Primark, wore underneath a long sleeve black top. I bought a cropped cross top before Christmas which works perfectly for layering.
