Hi Everyone,

So last Friday I attended the Mayo Roscommon Hospice Ladies Luncheon at Mount Falcon in Ballina. I’m sure You are all aware of the crucial services provided by the Mayo Roscommon Hospice. I was delighted to be able to support and attend this event. As palative  care services is somthing that is close to my own heart. We never availed of the services of the Hospice due to the circumstances of our Mums illness. However there are other family’s in much different situations who  need this great support in times of extreme sadness and pain. Believe me Seeing it first hand like I have,I know how vital fund raising events like this one is. 

So anyway onto the fun part. So I attended the event with five other ladies. My friends Emma, Nicola, Anne, Cora & Georgina. The weather was amazing the sun shone and We had the most fabulous day. We were treated to a fantastic fashion show by Carraigdonn.com and the most delicious meal at Mountfalconestate.com 

There were loads of fabulous prizes on the day and the style stakes were unreal. Everybody looked so glamorous. The gorgeous Miriam O Callaghan spoke and her words were so emotional and heartfelt. It was my first time to meet Miriam in person although I always admired her on TV. She really is a true lady who speaks straight from the heart. I felt really motivated after listening to her. 

Tommy Fleming entertained us with some lovely music on the day too. It was also my first time to meet Tommy. He was very friendly and was up for a few selfies, great craic.

I pulled a dress from the back of the wardrobe from about three years ago. It’s one of the Pretty Dress company ones I bought in MiMi in Castlebar back in 2013. I forgot I had it, always nice to rediscover a guna like that and give it another spin .

You folks know I can’t resist a good mirror selfie. When the lighting is that good. I embraced the pale and went for a vintage look. I think our pale Irish complexion is beautiful I intend to celebrate it more. 

Thanks Carraig donn

All in all the day was brilliant fun and for such a great cause. I’m looking forward to next year already. 

Please give this post a share and Thank You for Your continued support.
