MISS NI 2018..

Happy Friday ladies and gents! Will this snow ever end? Personally I am SO over it, I can't go anywhere with it in my car so roll on the spring and summer!

Speaking off, as some of you know this time of the year sees the beginning of the search for the new Miss Northern Ireland and last Thursday we kicked things off with the official launch night at the Europa Hotel Belfast.

Former Miss Northern Ireland, Zoe Salmon presented the evening with class and glamour as always, wearing a sliver show stopper! In the crowd were the lovely former Miss NI's, press, bloggers, sponsors and of course some of the hopefuls wanting to walk away with the crown at the grand final at the end of May. Zoe talked us through the heat dates and venues, what Miss Northern Ireland entails and much more, talking in front of a crowd of people is so much harder than people first think and Zoe does it so effortlessly!

Anna Henry, our current Miss Northern Ireland has done an amazing job and was well worthy of the coveted gold crown! She has represented Northern Ireland to the highest level and well and truly put us on the map when she headed to the Miss World competition.
Like Anna said on the launch night she will be sad to give the title up and so would anyone after a crazy year, but who will she be handing the role over to?

Anna's Dress is from Blush 

Enter at today, you must be aged between 17-24.
Good luck to anyone who enters, it is an amazing opportunity and one you won't regret!

Thanks for reading as always, there is a valentines post coming soon.
