50th post

The big 5-0 (post not years!)

Monday, November 02, 2009

So this is my 50th post..cant believe Ive been blogging that long! I didn’t know where this blog would take me or if I would even keep it up, but can say now that Im totally addicted to blogging and reading others blogs. Its such a creative and inspiring atmosphere. So anyways im rambling, for this post I said I would do a Giveaway and Q&A, thanks to everyone for leaving me questions..here are my answers.


How did you decide to start a blog and what had you in mind for it?
Before I started my blog I was inspired by blogs such as Fashion Toast, Style Bubble, Cherry Blossom Girl and Live Glam or Die. What I had in mind for it, changed and evolved as I worked out what suited me, I wanted to do outfit posts occasionally but also do other posts on fashion items, brands and whatever interested me. Im still constantly wanting to achieve more from my blog.

Where is your favourite place to be?
Depends on my mood and the time of year.. I love being up at the North Coast of Ireland, my parents have an apartment that my boyfriend and I would stay in some weekends it looks right out onto the beach and its lovely in the summer. Its also lovely on a really stormy cold winter night curled up in the sofa looking out at the waves crashing against the rocks.

Are you now working for that Irish Magazine full time?
A while ago I posted at article I got published in Irish fashion Magazine Eve,
I am currently working for them freelance, as I work full time as a Fashion Assistant as a Fashion Agency specializing in Designer Womenswear. Leaving me not enough time to blog!

If you could only choose one, would you pick Acne Wedges or Jimmy Choos?
Hmm.. If I could pick any Jimmy Choo shoe then Id have to go for the Choo..
Hard choice though!

What inspires you?
Lots of things.. two people esp, my boyfriend Dave who is insanely dedicated and hard working, he always knows what he wants and works for it and gets it. He knows exactly what he wants from his career and I have no doubt he’ll go incredibly far.
( he is currently doing a PHD in International Criminal Justice). The other person would be my mum she is very creative and is always trying new things, she is a wedding florist by profession but in her spare time shes a great photographer, and makes and sells her handmade jewellery.
I also get inspired by blogs like style bubble, tv shows like project runway and from reading magazines.

‘Debs’ left me a very original question.. picking up on my two main style traits different glasses and orange hair she asked if I could only pick one which would I give up my funky different pairs of glasses or orange hair?
Tough one.. I decided id keep my glasses.. I could never imagine myself wearing contacts and different glasses can change a look so quickly. As for my hair id just have to find a different colour to dye it..

What Camera do you use?
I used to use a Kodak v1253 12 mp camera which I LOVED. Until it died a few months ago now im using my dads old 6mp Kodak.. Im saving for SLR for Christmas. But wanna get a new small digi camera as well. If anyone can recommend one under £150 It would save me a lot time and research!

How long have you worked in fashion?
Well I worked in Retail all through Uni and also did placements with a Modelling Agency and Fashion P.R company. Then I left Uni and worked in marketing for 3 months..(hated it!) Then I got the job Im still in now as Fashion Assisatant, which Ive been doing for just over 2 years now.

And here is my Giveaway!!! Two designer winter scarves!!

the grey one


the brown one

Two Scarves, one grey, one brown. The brown one I have wrapped round my neck but is same length and material as the grey one. Its two layers stitched together, one of which is a cosy fine knit. They were donated to me when at the Paris Fashion show. They are by a French designer make known as Mado et les autres, and retail at £40 each.

To Enter the Giveaway all you have to do is be/become a follower and leave a comment with your email address below :). The competition will run for one week then the winners will be selected at random. xo
