The start of something new…… a little introduction

Polka & Belle is made up of three girls Aoife, Clodagh and Richael we are all best friends and also have the benefit of being cousins. We come from a big family and are all extremely close. Recently, we have all moved from our small town to Cork City and we love it we love the “City Life” and love living together.We have always talked about wanting to start our own blog but never actually done it. So here we are giving it a go and hopefully it will be a sucess and people will really enjoy it. We plan on writing about fashion, beauty and hair. We will start with each of us having our own little projects. So we hope you enjoy and please tell your friends and family about us.


Introduce yourself…..Okay!!

My name is Richael (pronounced Richelle) I know its an unusual name its Irish and my parents have a lovely story as to why they picked this name but I won’t get into that now. I am 23 years old as of yesterday (10th of February) I’m not sure how I feel about this yet as I wish to stay 21 forever but that is never going to happen unfortunately. I have a Degree in Information Technology (I.T) I studied for 3 years in Waterford Institute of Technology (W.I.T) the course covered many things but my favourite modules were Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Web Design I always had a passion for these and I have designed a few websites and also love to create invitations. I have done a few courses before making the move to Cork. I was extremely lucky when I moved as I got a job in Amazon almost straight away and have been working here since.

I love love love fashion, make-up and hair but if I’m honest I’m not that adventurous when it comes to doing my make-up and hair I have all the best make-up products most recently receiving the Naked Palette 3 for Christmas I do love it but I know I could do more with it I can say the same for my hair I have all the equipment GHD, curling wand etc but don’t use them much thats where Clodagh and Aoife come in (hehe). When it comes to fashion though I am a bit obsessed if I could I would shop everyday unfortunately I do not have the wardrobe space or the money to do this. Instead I tend to window shop a lot in town and online. So in this blog I will write about fashion, upload pictures of styles that we love, upload pictures of some of our own outfits and eventually we will start sharing our bargains of the week. I really hope you enjoy it and keep coming back for more. That is all from me for now.


My name is Aoife. I’m 20 years young ;). I live in a little town in Tipperary. I am currently studying hairdressing. I am in my second year. I love the course I just hate the whole learning process I wish I could just do everything already. We are learning how to do hair extensions at the moment, they are very time consuming but I enjoy doing them. I want to travel as much as I can and eventually get to say I have lived in London and New York. I’m starting my travelling this summer, I’m going to Santa Ponsa working for a month and I am so excited.

I love fashion, nothing makes me happier than new clothes. I get most of my outfit ideas from blogs and pictures I see on the internet. I will upload my outfits of the day, hairstyles that I have created and pictures that I love of both. Your feedback is a must! 🙂 chow for now

Hey guys my name is Clodagh, I’m a small town gal living in Cork city with two of my cousins and loving the city life. Its all very new and strange to be away from friends and family but there is so much more for a girl like me who loves make-up and clothes and pretty much anything girlie in a city, unfortunately I never went to college hence why I’m in Cork now ,so I’m looking into doing a make-up course this year, I’m pretty much the go-to friend for hair,nails make-up etc to be done for nights out and what occasion might be on, I also have some weird ability to remember what is in all my friends wardrobes so I’m the one they ring when they are in need of an outfit instead of actually getting up and looking themselves ha,so I hope you keep popping by and check out our pics and updates and help spread the word 🙂
