The deadliest of sins...

I apologise for being M.I.A (missing in action) for the past few weeks, my life has been so hectic!
How and ever, I did have the most fun on the photo shoot i briefly blogged about a few weeks back - Seven Deadly Sins.

Ok, rewind, action...I am editor of my college fashion magazine, The Look which is being published this week, it's all very exciting. In order to compile such a project there of course had to be a show stopping, jaw dropping fashion spread. And so I tried and I think the outcome was pretty good.

We braved the wind and rain, two photographers, a stylist, an assistant, 8 models and moi and headed for Albert College park, the picturesque wooded setting for our shoot. A student run magazine, all of my team were students, some with experience some without but they each handled the days events very professionally. For that alone I am one proud Mama.

So without further a due I present to you my sins: Greed (Ana-Maria), Gluttony (Lydija), Sloth (Emma), Vanity (Sarah), Envy (Louise), Wrath (Me) and Lust(Emily).

I would like to thank my photographers Nicky O Flanagan and Eimear Dalton, stylist Anna Murphy, Assistant Elizabeth Demine and male models Dave and Dermot.
Great job by everyone, I cannot wait to see the final result!!

Oh how I love you...

For those of you that have been in hibernation, closed off from the rest of the world, I am here to tell you the best news I have heard in a long time.

FOREVER 21!!!!
The first European flagship store is opening it's doors in Dublin's Jervis Shopping Centre, Saturday November 13th.

This fact was drawn to my attention last February or so whilst reading The Irish Times Online, an article documenting Forever 21's arrival to Dublin.

During my trip to Vegas in July, I fell in love. Not a typical holiday romance mind you. No, I fell in love with the largest and newest of the American chain store. Cheap, chic, cheerful and any fashionista's paradise, I spent about 7 hours there over two days. gazing in awe and wonder at the amazing bargains, incredible interior design and styling, and of course buying all around me.

And's here!!! On my doorstep. Unfortunately I won't be attending the opening, an exciting and momentous occasion no doubt. I will however be paying a little visit next week, piggy bank in hand!

I cannot wait!!!!!!
(I'm not excited, i swear!)

Models and Madness!

So I am writing a short post in absolute anticipation and excitement for tomorrow. I am honoured to have been given the opportunity to take the role of editor of my college fashion magazine The Look. We start shooting tomorrow morning bright and early for our main photo spread, themed Seven Deadly Sins.
Up to an hour ago it was raining down in bucket fulls but I am saying my prayers that tomorrow stays dry as we want to shoot outside.
With 7 beautiful female models, 2 male models, 2 photographers, top class stylist and a bunch of helpful assistants, tomorrow should be a fun day to say the least.
I will keep you posted on how the shoot goes and of course present to you the final frames.
Off to pack for the adventure ahead, wish me luck!
