Belfast loves a bargain

Boxing day is a time for cold cuts and Internet shopping, but not in Belfast.

The shoppers were out en force yesterday taking full advantage of this antiquated consumer led Christmas tradition.

I watched tons of teens patiently queued outside a plethora of places as stores worked on a one in, one out basis.

The only reason I breached the front door was to take full advantage of the build in babysitters, also known as the grandparents, for a spot of lunch with the other half.

I wanted to scream at the swarm of shoppers 'go home and log on'. But bazaarly they appeared to be loving the mayhem and mess as clothes chaotically got chucked around the shops in Victoria Square.

Mon' the madness!

Last shoot of the 2011

The George Hotel was home to my last fashion shoot of 2011.

I had a wonderful style squad by my side to create New Years Eve looks from glam pyjama parties to dancing disco diva's and even laid back dinner dates.

You will be able to get your peepers on the shoot in this Monday's Edinburgh Evening News.

But here's a tiny sneaky peek...

Happy Hogmanay when it comes!

Hats with ears inside the broom cupboard

This morning I made my way down to the radio studio's at The Tun to discuss hats with ears on BBC Scotland.

Sadly said head gear has seeped into our shops and onto Joe Public's nappers, with both adults and children committing crimes against their craniums by wearing them.

The trend, which looks a little like a halloween hangover, has been sported by stars such as Jessie J and Snoop Dogg.

A duo not really known for their prima fashionista status...

Anyway, here's a peek inside the studio at The Tun. It always makes me think of Andi Peters in the broom cupboard!
