Miss Bikini Ireland - Update | RTE & MY TASK

This week Miss Bikini Ireland girls got to go RTE studios to see the recording of 'Know the Score' which is a sports quiz show where Irish Athletes go head to head to see who is the most knowledgeable  .  

We went to RTE for half six for a drink reception before the show started . It was cool seeing behind the scenes of a quiz show and all the work that goes into recording something like that . I cant say too much about the show but it will be airing in November on RTE and is gonna be a good one so definitely tune in to it . Keep an eye out for us Miss Bikini girls in the audience .  The Miss Bikini Ireland team really put there heart and soul into organising things for all us contestants and I am so grateful . Its not everyday I get to do something like that . I got pictures with Galway hurler Joe Canning & Boxer Andy Lee as well as a group picture with the other girls who attended .

I have my task this in Dublin and wouldn't find out what it is until then . Me and the girls that are doing the task with me will find out what the task is by text in front of the camera so are reactions will be authentic . I have absolutely no idea what task it will be but I am kind of hoping for the fitness task . There was about 7 task and a handful of us where chosen for each one tasks include stuff like Make up Task , Photoshoot task , Catwalk task etc  . There is one winner for each task an they will automatically will have a place in the top 10 on the night of the final .

As you all probably know at this stage the night of the final is 50% judges vote & 50% text vote . I would love nothing more to represent Ireland at Swimsuit USA International so every vote counts. To vote text 'BIKINI 109' to 57003 . UK and Northern Ireland votes text 'BIKINI 109' to 60999.

Thanks for the continued support .
Appreciate it a lot .

Miss Bikini Ireland | BAMMA - Outfit , Make up , Hair

I actually really liked my outfit for BAMMA in the 3arena last Saturday. Most of the time I wear gym clothes or work clothes(black) so its nice to get to wear something a little fancier (and brighter).

I wasn't looking for a dress because I had a dress that I was going to wear that I got/wore awhile back but when I came across this dress I fell in love .

Its a very simple dress but I like the colour orange(especially with a tan) and the dress was a nice fit .
I got the dress in Topline Main Street Buncrana ,Co.Donegal . I did find it hard getting shoes to go nicely with it but I found these pair in Office and I am a big fan of rose gold. Getting a matching clutch was actually a lot easier then I thought , I got the clutch in Accessorize. The bracelet was a birthday present from Italy & my earrings were from Penneys/Primark.

I was working that day before the event so I had to do my hair & make up before work & get changed in the car on the way to Dublin .Talk about rushed! lol . I opted for a sleek high ponytail with loads of hairspray so it would stay put all day . Make up wise I did my favourite look ,bronze & gold eyes & a nude lip. Urban Decay setting spray and translucent powder where my saviours .

My tan is Bellamianta spray tan done by Jennifer in ' Beauty House' Bridgend , Co.Donegal . It was a lovely golden tan and didn't smell at all .

It was an amazing night and I am so grateful to be apart of it all . After BAMMA some of the Miss Bikini Ireland crew headed into Lillie Bordellos for a few drinks .

The Miss Bikini Ireland gang are all invited to be audience memebers in a new RTE quiz show on Monday so I will keep you all up to date on that .

Miss Bikini Ireland | Body Positivity

Hey everyone ,

I thought I would write a little about the competition I have entered Miss Bikini Ireland which I posted on my Facebook page a few days ago . For anyone who doesn’t know miss bikini Ireland is on its 5th year of running . If you win Miss Bikini Ireland you have the amazing opportunity to represent Ireland at Swimsuit International in Cancun , Mexico later this year .

I came across this competition on Facebook , thought nothing of I but was intrigued so I clicked into it and started reading about the competition . I thought it sounded like a great opportunity so I went ahead an entered not really thinking I would get an email back . I had started going to the gym a year before that and was really enjoying it and thought it was a good chance for me  to really push myself and step up my fitness level .

I would eat generally healthy also but wanted to push that too . Thanks to my sponsor Nutrition to suit you I have learnt a lot about nutrition , especially the effects of sugar on are bodies & she also gave me amazing healthy recipes . I have far more energy then I would have and don’t get that mid day sugar slump . Once you stop taking sugar too after awhile those crazings go . If any of you are looking for nutrition plans 100% recommend Nutrition to suit you , Niamh makes up individual plans to suit you and your lifestyle .

I got and email a few weeks later(funnily enough I was eating a big cream pastery at the time) saying that I got through to the next stage and that the judges were having interviews . I went to Dublin to the interviews and everything went really well . There was also a production team there for filming .

All the girls in the competition are lovely and all so helpful it really doesn’t feel like where in competition at all feel like one big family . Every single one of us girls have a different body shape and that what I love most about it. No two people are the same , woman are very hard on themselves when it comes to appearence & body confidence . We stand in front of the mirror critize ourselves constantly .

Over the last year my confidence has grown big time for a lot of different reasons .
One of the things I started trying to do is stop being so hard on myself and ignoring that voice in your head telling me I need to look or be a certain way . Since I have started thinking more positively about things a lot more positive things have happened .

There will be people in this world that just wouldn’t like you , but please don’t make yourself be one of them . You have to be your own best friend .

The final is in Dublin on the 14th of October we will have different tasks (which will be filmed) up until that stage . I am both excited and nervous .

You can follow the process on Miss Bikini Ireland’s Facebook page &  other social media accounts.

I also have Instagram : alannahharrigan & snapchat : alannahmakeup where ill be posting updates etc.

To be honest I was a nervous wreck about posting up the bikini pictures the other day but was delighted with the positive response .

Anyway I could go on with this blog post forever so I will stop it here . 

I really am very thankful to have such good friends & family supporting me .

Thanks to anyone who commented , messaged or liked the pictures . You have no idea how much I appericate it .
