Easy Peasy Wallpaper

Having a gorgeous bedroom is so important, if your bedroom is a bit grim you feel grim for the day, so what better way to jazz it up then with a RubyFab wall  make-over!!

All you have to do is "invest" in some cheap wallpaper of your favourite print, and some Blu-Tac!! It IS that easy!!

Here is my old (boring as shite) wall:

My best friend, Amy, getting busy getting the DIY wallpaper ready:

London Life

ATTENTION all RUBYFAB readers, I would like to apologise for the lack of posts, life has been rather up in the air as of late, I've recently moved to London and been busy getting settled in my new job and new home.

I finally have the energy to get back on the fab buzz so HURRAH!! :D




Today RubyFabulous got some media exposure. Here I am in Image Magazine.

Email me for autograph signings if you like :P



We all love a bit of glitz and glam and I may be the biggest sicker for a sparkly nail, but lets face it girls, glitter nail polish is a nightmare to get off. It takes way too long and in the end you want to throw any polish you have that may even have a slight shimmer as far down the street as you can. 

I've got a wonderfully easy way to remove it!

You'll need:
- Cotton Pads
- Nail Polish Remover (DUH)
- Tinfoil

(before.... looking at these made me want to remove all fingers)

Cotton pads, you need 2/3 per hand..

rip them into halves or thirds..

SOAK them in nail polish remover, like so it's dripping wet..

cover the nail and cotton wool with tinfoil...


(leave for 2 minutes)


hurrrraaahhh the nightmare is finally over!!

Daisy Nailsy

With the coming of summer (as much of a summer as one can get in Ireland) I've decided to do some floral nails, and not just any floral, daisies! These nails took me 10 minutes to do and lasted the whole weekend!

All you need is: blue, white and yellow nail polish:

(these are the cheapest I could get)

One cotton bud:

( the best way to get even dots on the nails, instead of using a nail art pen, is to take the wool off the end of a cotton bud, this way you get perfect circles )

So I painted my nails blue first:

Then using the plastic end of the cotton bud, dip it in the yellow polish first and dot on SPARINGLY (too many dots means too many flowers, and it looks shite)

Finally, add 4/5 white dots around the yellow, make sure you let the yellow dry first!

Gorge Daisy nails!!

:) enjoy the summer! x


Atelier 27 // Om Diva

Last week I was invited to attend a fashion show showcased by Atelier 27 and Om Diva, the shop is located on Drury Steet, and my god did those ladies do us proud! The shop itself looked incredible from the moment you arrived, with flowers supplied by Appassionata and individual designers pieces dotted around the shop, I was already in heaven!

We were greeted with champagne and strawberries!! WAY TO MY HEART <3

The fashion show was held in the loft of the store, Ruth and the girls did an amazing job and getting the place ready, so impressed!

As you can see on the seats WE ALL GOT A GOODIE BAG!! (you know how I love my free stuff)

I went for a wander around the shop while I was waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive. It really was the sweetest store I have been in in such a long time, even the loo had me swooning!

The night had music by Chewy and the special guest was the Lord Mayor of Dublin, I was EXTREMELY jealous of his bling. 

We all took our seats and the fashion show began, the music was incredible and the models looked so great! my favourite was the clothing by De Loup, with tie-dye and studding it was right up my street. A really cool touch was that all the models had something neon on them all the time, mainly a neon streak in their hair, which I thought looked really awesome.

Some of the best bits of the goody bag included: 

The whole night was a success and I was so proud of all the hard work everyone put in, it really shows when individuals that are passionate about a field of interest come together they can really make something special.

Well done to EVERYONE involved!!

Fabulous Festival Feet!

Festival season is upon us at last - WOOHOO! With so many good gigs on in Ireland this summer to cater for everyone's music taste I thought I'd share an extremely simple tip that can brighten up any festival outfit. Let's face it, we still want to look unreal (even if we are covered in sweat and booze). 

First things first, for fabulous festival feet you will need to have your toenails painted a nice vibrant colour. Perhaps even paint each toenail a different colour, or do some nail art. Whatever your nail polish preference just make sure it's nice and colourful. You'll also need to grab some fab sandles (mine are from Penneys -€6).

Now here's the simple secret - to add a splash of colour and fun, take a trip to your nearest dress making shop (Hickey's or The Woollen Mills are perfect) and buy a few euro worth of coloured ribbon. You could  go for candy shades, patterned ribbon or bold colours like me. Wrap the ribbon around your ankle and cut excess ribbon accordingly.Tie the ribbon around your ankle in a tight bow. You can make the bow as big or as small as you like. You could have more than one ribbon around your ankle if you want to exaggerate the look.
