mom, maaaaa, mother, mammy

love this 50's pic of mothers an daughters, not that myself or my mom are in any way good a cooking, infact my specialty is burnt and crispy garlic bread,  frozen on the inside. Its quite baffling that everytime i cook, i manage to burn anything from toast to toast, i cant think of anything else i've attempted of late!

Spent this fine mothers day watching '16 and up the Duff', quite the motherly day i had, of course i didn't realise it was mother's day until herself pointed it out to me.

and finally the mother of all..em ..mothers, Michelle Dugger. Your wan has 18 kids and the 19th is on the way! While you may be thinking 'Holy Crap, here's a condom!', the Dugger family of Arkansa in the fine US of A believe that kids are beautiful and special..etc, each to your own. While flicking through the family pics on the their website, which i have, a shamefull amount of times, i notice that these kids dont really resemble each other hugely, just because you put 'em in ankle lenght skirts and refuse to visit the hair dresser doesn't mean, young Jim-Bob, Jeramia, Jordyn-grace, Jinger and the rest are actualy related. I suspect there are a fair few postmen and milkmen  keeping their head down throughout Arkansa.

12 Days to showtime

For the past 6months I've been working on the biggest event in DIT, nay the Dublin Fashion scene, the DIT Alfa Romeo Fashion Show!!

here's a pic of the student designs from the 2009 show! pretty cool eh?!

My job this year mentor to the style team, as I was the head the past few years, head of all the models, which means i just shout at them an tell them what to do from week to week, and lastly, online marketing, em..lady! This role i kinda fell into, but I've learnt all sorts about hashtags, widgets and coding while working away at our blog, twitter, web page and facebook! Here's a link to my other blog and the webpage.

tickets are €20 for students or €25 for grown ups! Obviously I'm biased, but its a great show, goodies bags are going to be great and the dancers, not to mention the models are hot hot HOT!!

name change time

i thought long an hard about christening this lovely blog, for which i have great intentions! I thought of all the fabulous quote in my favorite books.. well as all the lyrics i love. However, i know my real passion is all things classic, simple, neat and clean! also I'm partial to the multi-coloured, wild and extravagant things in life.

And so, I think vanilla is the perfect opposite to rainbows!
